The trailer for Universal Pictures’ The Visit has just debuted online. I remember seeing this one before Unfriended (that’s a whole other story) and thought it looked really good and then I saw the name M. Night Shyamalan and sunk in my seat. I have a love/hate relationship with the man, but nevertheless I’m a professional and willing to give the man another chance to win me over with his newest entry in the horror genre, The Visit. After all, it is produced by Jason Blum who has been hitting one homer after another lately. Continue reading ‘Debut of M. Night Shyamalan’s ‘The Visit’ Trailer’

Remember that unstoppable comedic force from the 90s by that went by way of “the weasel”. That MTV personality that you couldn’t get enough of? You know, John Sencio! Okay, I’m kidding. We’re talking about Pauly Shore. A guy that I don’t think anyone wants to go back and admit they may have laughed about anything to do with him anymore. His film, Bio-Dome is coming to Blu-ray and I was surprised (Or maybe not surprised) to find that its the first of his major or lead starring films to hit the format. Considering there was a time where I did enjoy Pauly Shore, I always found this one to be one of the very bottom feeder of his films. It didn’t help that when I saw it opening weekend in the theater (Yup, I did) that I had a bad wing man experience to go with it. Well, hopefully this opens the opportunity to get maybe some of his “better” work out on Blu-ray, namely Son-In-Law really. Continue reading ‘Bio-Dome (Blu-ray Review)’

Well, we’ve been waiting what seems like forever for this moment since it was made “official” not too long ago. This is our second and a meatier look at STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS, the seventh film in the official Star Wars saga. It was unveiled today at Celebration, the big time Star Wars convention. People will clamor for “more, more” but do we need much else to sell us on what will likely be one of the biggest films of the year (And who knows, all time?). This is an exciting year to be a Star Wars fan as new canon material continues to flow in and will step up its game even more in the fall. For what its worth, I’m really loving the Marvel comics line covering a lot of ground between Star Wars and The Empire Strikes back. Anywho, lets get to this darn trailer. Click and watch it a billion times today. Just make sure you’re continually coming back to Why So Blu when you do so! Continue reading ‘“Chewie, We’re Home” New STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS Trailer Debuts At Celebration 2015!’
It’s 1964. JFK has just been assassinated. Martha & the Vandellas, Little Stevie Wonder and the Four Tops rule the airwaves. And two high school students discover themselves – and the taste of freedom – for the first time. Preach (Glynn Truman), a serious-minded writer, and his best friend Cochise (Lawrence-Hilton Jacobs), a basketball hero headed for college, are best friends at Cooley High. Together they cut classes to go to the zoo, crash parties, put the hustle on some hustlers and dream about getting out of their impoverished, rough neighborhood. But when an innocent joy ride makes them the targets of two vengeful hoods, their already uncertain futures seem even further out of reach. Featuring a “well handled mix of comedy and drama with a soundtrack of Motown gold” (Blockbuster Entertainment Guide) and a “universal appeal” (Los Angeles Times), Cooley High is the best American comedy so far this year (Village Voice)!
