Friday Flick: Jack the Giant Slayer


JackTheGiantSlayerOfficial Description: Jack the Giant Slayer tells the story of an ancient war that is reignited when a young farmhand unwittingly opens a gateway between our world and a fearsome race of giants. Unleashed on the Earth for the first time in centuries, the giants strive to reclaim the land they once lost, forcing the young man, Jack, into the battle of his life to stop them. Fighting for a kingdom, its people, and the love of a brave princess, he comes face to face with the unstoppable warriors he thought only existed in legend—and gets the chance to become a legend himself.

Unofficial Description: The kid from Skins in a CGI-heavy flick where Ewan McGregor phones in a performance that almost makes us forget Revenge of the Midichlorians…

I’ve promised myself that I will try to say some positive things about these Friday movies.  I mean, no one likes a constant barrage of negativity – am I right?  So here goes.

This DVD came packaged in an exquisite piece of engineering.  I mean, really – kudos to whoever designed and manufactured it.  The DVD disc fit snugly and didn’t shake or rattle.  The seam snapped together perfectly and opened easily.  The graphics on the cover were spot-on, and the choice in font (is that IMPACT?) worked well for the quote.  Overall, a really well put together case.
