About this deal
A key element to any horror movie is knowing how to have fun within its universe. Even the scariest and most serious of terrifying films can have a good time that will greatly affect their audience. Not only will the masses jump with terror and cover their eyes with horror, but they can also have a good laugh with audible laughs if done right. James Wan has perfected that craft and with the new film M3GAN about a robotic doll who becomes self-aware, the number of thrills and laughs are at the top of the mountain. There’s nothing artificial about the way M3GAN looks on its Blu-ray debut. Colors are bold and the entire spectrum is covered. The interior of the house, office, etc. give a warm vibe that nearly looks like a Hallmark movie (I’m sure it was intentional) while the outdoor scenes retain that sun-soaked color palette. This changes later on, naturally, due to the film’s nature. The 2.39:1 AVC HD encode isn’t challenged in the least with the minor exception of a bit of blooming. It’s certainly indicative of what a new-to-the-format film should look like – it’s good-looking. Audio: How’s it sound? Theatrical/Unrated Cut– Both cuts of the movie are included with the unrated cut being, wait for it…6 seconds longer than the theatrical version. Enjoy.

create a lifelike robotic companion for her which she dubs "M3GAN" (Amie Donald, voiced by Jenna Davis), a lifelike doll that is fully self-sufficient. A robotics engineer at a toy company designs and builds a prototype doll with learning artificial intelligence, that begins to take on a life of its own.Bringing Life to M3GAN– See how animatronics, puppets, and actor Amie Donald helped make M3GAN as real as possible. We meet Cady (Violet McGraw) as we witness a devastating accident that takes the lives of her parents. She’s summarily sent to live with her aunt, Gemma (Allison Williams), someone responsible for creating a “Furby-like” toy that’s the talk of the town. Gemma has some issues at work, namely trying to keep her boss (Ronny Chieng) happy. She’s also woefully unequipped to fill the role of mother. But her newest invention, M3GAN (Model 3 Generative Android) looks like a real girl and has the ability to learn from its user. Gemma “pairs” it with Cady which leads to a tight bond between the two. Gemma then uses this attachment to sell the idea to her boss who only sees dollar signs. All is well, though as the bond between the two strengthens, we see a side of M3GAN that might jeopardize the entire project. And it's obvious that Wan, Cooper, and Johnstone are having a blast behind the camera as their visuals pay homage in a blissful and hilarious way to movies like E.T., Child's Play, and other creepy toy and doll films that came before it. Everybody turns in solid performances including The Daily Show's senior correspondent Ronny Chieng as the stern and idiotic CEO of the robotic company, but the spotlight is truly on Allison Williams. She is the Queen of horror nowadays and just commands the screen every time she's on with her pitch-perfect performances and physical stuntwork. The one major complaint here is its PG-13 rating. It definitely hindered the horror element of it and could have been even better with that extra dose of gore, blood, and entrails, since many blunt instruments of death are used throughout the film. It would just enhance that level of fun here, but perhaps it was a marketing move to make way for an uncut edition later on home video.

M3GAN, orModel 3 Generative Android, is an artificially intelligent lifelike doll developed by Gemma. The android was designed to be a child’s best friend and loyal companion, especially when caretakers like Gemma need help. At first, MEGAN is a huge success, bonding with Cady and doing exactly what Gemma set out for it to do. However, M3GAN soon develops a violent streak when she becomes overprotective of Cady, leading to tragic consequences. Now it's time for the Unrated Edition Ted Talk. This Unrated version of M3GAN is not the ultimate 30-minute longer cut of the film, as Midsommar gifted us. This is about 90 seconds or so longer of more blood, guts, and foul language. The hilarious Ronny Chieng delivers several four-letter f-words and the titular robotic maniac utters one that enhances her tenacious ferocity. The death scenes are the same, but most add a few seconds of gore with some extended nastiness, such as the ear-pull, the power-washer face melter, and more. The theatrical cut is wonderful but these added few seconds of depravity and language really drive home the high entertainment value of the fun horror this movie really is about. Before, the film would cut away too soon, but here, it allows for all the red drippings to be viewed, even if it's short-lived. that traditional SDR colors can offer. The rest of the film offers much the same, with a livelier, more fully saturated, more impressively brilliant and bold
