5.0 out of 5 stars A future classic Nov. 19 2007
By Myrdek
Format:DVD
I watched The Man from Earth yesterday because of the flood of positive comments I had seen. The premise seemed a little weird but I gave it a shot and it blew me away! It's rare for a movie to get you so involved that you forget where you are, what time it is and even that your thirsty.

The premise is simple by itself, a man who was born 12 000 years ago is still alive to this day and tells a group of friend. It is the way it's brought to us, and how clever the conversations are that sucks you in.

Although it's a low budget film and only use one location to film in, it doesn't feel cheap. The acting is also pretty decent.

I'm usually not a fan of independant films but this one shouldn't be missed. Especially if your tired of the dumbing down of hollywood to appeal to the masses.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding Dec 30 2008
Format:DVD
A dialogue driven, well paced, remarkable movie. I 've seen it three times and still get goose bumps. No blood, no chase scenes, just a great script from the one time Twilight Zone writer, well acted and very thought provoking. A four star "hidden gem"

5.0 out of 5 stars My name is John Aug. 6 2010
By bernie TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Professor John Oldman (David Lee Smith) is packing, as it is time for him to move on. All his friends and co-scientists from the university come to see him off. They have an afternoon and a bottle to kill so John poses a question. Base of a few trinkets found in John is packing possessions. The portcullises what if he were actually a cave man that survived to this day. As his friends are grilling him, he feeds off their input to weave a tail that sucks us in as viewers.

The whole movie takes place in a small room of a simple house. However, it is anything but a simple tale.
A little added plus was having `Moonlight Sonata" (Beethoven, 7th Symphony, 2nd Movement) in the background until someone tells John to turn it off.

This was the last work from Screenwriter Jerome Bixby.

I saw the Blu-ray DVD however it is a very poor transfer it is vary grainy and I am sure it was not for art's sake.
----------------------------------------------------
After watching the Blu-Ray for a few times, I was curious to find out why the standard DVD costs almost twice as much.

I played them back to back in the same player and they are exactly the same on the main feature on a 46" screen. There is not even the hint of better resolution or sound.

The standard DVD comes with some coming attractions but lets you know that you can go directly to the main menu if you like

There is an audio setup Dolby Surround 5.1 or 2.0. Two different voice-over commentaries.

5.0 out of 5 stars Riveting Nov. 24 2008
Format:DVD
I just saw this and was riveted from beginning to end. No special effects, no action, no rush... just a group of friends in a room listening to the incredible revelation of someone close to them. At first they entertain it as a joke, or the plot line for a new book, so they just go with it and challenge him in an effort to keep the game going... but their skepticism soon turns to hope (well, some of them) that what he's saying may be true. Any acting shortcomings are soon forgotten as the story slowly sucks you in. Oh... you don't want to miss the ending (sorry, no spoilers).
