Happy Tuesday everybody! I hope you survived the holiday weekend. This week’s pick is a personal favorite of mine, Searching.

After David Kim (John Cho)’s 16-year-old daughter goes missing, a local investigation is opened and a detective is assigned to the case. But 37 hours later and without a single lead, David decides to search the one place no one has looked yet, where all secrets are kept today: his daughter’s laptop. In a hyper-modern thriller told via the technology devices we use every day to communicate, David must trace his daughter’s digital footprints before she disappears forever. – Sony Pictures Releasing 

Searching seems like a gimmick, a movie shown entirely through computer screens but it’s not. This a damn good mystery, computer screens or no computer screens. The style of the film does enhance the movie and make it more visually interesting but it’s not needed at all. John Cho is a serious actor, forget about White Castle. He is our focus for the entire movie. He perfectly captures the essence of a distraught dad doing everything to find his daughter. We see a lot of him, his body language and facial expressions show so much emotion. This is a well put together film with a tight script that has come at such a appropriate time with internet culture.

Included with the Blu-ray:

  • Blu-ray Disc
  • Digital HD
  • Special Features
    • Director’s commentary
    • Three behind the scenes featurettes

I'm a recent college grad trying to make my mark on the world. But I have no idea what I'm doing. Anyways I spend way too much money on movie tickets. I obsessively buy blu-rays and other movie paraphernalia, that's what credit cards are for, right? I like anything superhero related especially the MCU, the DC CW shows and I'll tell you Batman v. Superman wasn't that bad. My ultimate guilty pleasure movie is Daredevil. Yeah the Ben Affleck one. Watch the directors cut, it'll change your life. I have a tendency to have man crushes on men named Chris, especially Chris Pratt. My superhero obsession has also led to a gym obsession, I just want to look as good as Chris Evans in a plain white tee. I have a podcast on iTunes called the Deadlifting Dorks, I think we are really funny.
