Class of 1999 (1990, USA) Vestron Video Blu-ray Review

Class of 1999 (1990)

Class of 1999 is a spiritual successor to Mark L. Lester’s Class of 1984; a tale of revenge that depicted an increasingly violent gang clashing with the music teacher of a troubled inner-city high school. The tagline for Class of 1984“Look at us. We are the future. You can’t stop us. Don’t even try.” – was derived from a comment made in the film by the leader of the gang, Peter Stegman (played by director Timothy Van Patten): “I am the future!”
But that was 1984. The year is now 1999…

“The ultimate teaching machine… out of control.”

This December, Gregory Suicide was released via Dark Horse Books to both brick and mortar, and online comic book stores everywhere. I have my copy, and I suggest you do the same. The hardcover graphic novel is written by Eric Grissom, with artwork by Will Perkins.

“[Gregory Suicide] deals with what it means to be flawed and the wonderful humanity in that, all while tackling our disposable society.”



The White King (2016, UK / Hungary)

The White King (2016)

In The White King, directors Alex Helfrecht and Jorg Tittel cleverly introduce the viewer to the world in which their tale is set by means of a beautiful animated exposition during the beginning credits. We then enter the film with some background knowledge of what we are dealing with – a harsh, rural, dystopian society, created by a mythical ‘hero’…

The White King is adapted from a series of short stories by the Romanian novelist György Dragomán.

“We make sacrifices today, for a greater tomorrow.”
