Amazon Exclusive Wonder Woman Blu-ray Combo Pack (Review)

Amazon Exclusive Wonder Woman Blu-ray ReviewSo you’re all probably “wondering” to yourself like Aaron Neuwirth asked me yesterday.  Is Why So Blu’s Brian White ever going to review Wonder Woman on any home media format?  You’re kidding right?  I may hold the Internet record for most reviews of it.  I dare you to call me out on it.  Let’s count the ways I have brought September 19th’s Wonder Woman release date to your computer screen.  It all started three weeks ago when I covered the 4K UHD Dolby Vision VUDU release of Wonder Woman over here.  Next up we were one of the first major sites to review the Warner Bros. 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray product over here.  And finally, we had you covered with eye-popping three dimensions in our Blu-ray 3D review of it all here.  If that’s not enough Wonder Woman for you, then try this one on for size.  We were also among the first to tackle the three new DC Collectibles statues from the film with our picture-by-picture unboxing of the Goddess in her AmazonTraining Suit over here.  So like Eminem once said I’m back!  I last covered an exclusive piece like this here with the Warner Bros./Amazon Exclusive Harley Quinn Suicide Squad Blu-ray set.  Now we have a Wonder Woman one, exclusive DC Collectibles statue and  all.  Follow me down below as I take you through this exclusive release complete with a picture-by-picture replay of my unboxing.

The Year of John Denver’s “Take Me Home, Country Roads” Continues In Kingsman: The Golden Circle (Movie Review)

The Kingsman Golden Circle Movie ReviewFirst there was Matthew Vaughn and Mark Millar’s Kick-Ass in 2010 and then there was Kingsman: The Secret Service (Aaron Neuwirth’s review of it all here and mine) in 2014.  Needless to say I’m a big fan of both.   Now we have a September 22nd sequel titled Kingsman: The Golden Circle.  This is one film I can’t say enough good things about way before I even sat my butt down in the press screening’s theater seat this past week.  You see I was one of the lucky ones to be able to attend the Hall H Comic-Con panel in San Diego for this action spy flick this past July (see Jordan Grout’s coverage of it all here).  Not only did I get a unique tuxedo t-shirt and a rad Kingsman spinner, but I also witnessed the entire opening sequence, which is quite breathtaking, and two awesome clips that whet my appetite greater than the thought of Red Robin’s steak fries covered in that yummy sodium laced seasoning of theirs.  You picking up what I’m dropping?  While Kingsman: The Golden Circle may not include the exotic mummy, Sofia Boutella, this time around (for obvious reasons) it does have one hell of an all-star studded lineup.  If you choose to accept this mission, then let me fill you in on everything below.

Wonder Woman (Blu-ray 3D Review)

Wonder Woman 3D Blu-ray ReviewA lot of this is going to be a rehash of my already published 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray review here and 4K UHD VUDU review here.  However, you’re here solely for the 3D presentation of it all.  I know that.  So with that disclaimer out of the way let’s begin here!  Like George Washington once proclaimed “I cannot tell a lie.”  Wonder Woman was my number one most anticipated film of the calendar year.  Say what?  I’m 100% serious and no I’m not on any drugs.  This is 80 plus years in the making here, folks!  It’s historic!  I would be prone to say Justice League is, but I’m weary about how ridiculous Cyborg looks thus far.  I’m joking of course.  I’ll reserve judgement of that until November (as I hear they are working on him in reshoots anyway).  For now let me bask in the ever radiant light of everything Gal Gadot (check her out here) and the Amazonian princess she portrays, Wonder Woman.  Call me a sucker, but I just love a strong female protagonist in my action movies, and it doesn’t hurt if they’re hot too.  So you’ve all seen my proverbial masturbation over the three DCEU films that have come before, Man of Steel, Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad, and now it’s time to lasso up Wonder Woman.  Wouldn’t that be spectacular to lasso up Wonder Woman, huh (insert dirty evil thought)?  Ha ha.  Come on!  Let’s get started!

Silicon Valley: The Complete Fourth Season (Blu-ray Review)

Silicon Valley Season 4I’m going to start this one by giving you the same ramble I do year after year covering this HBO title.  Working in the IT industry myself I can’t tell you what a breath of fresh air it is to see people going through the same stress, trials and tribulations as myself in the industry.   I may not exactly be involved directly in a tech startup company, but I know how things work in corporate America/Silicon Valley and sometimes HBO’s hit comedy series Silicon Valley hits oh so close to home for me.  You can read all about my take on Season One in my 2014 Blu-ray review over here, Season Two here and Season Three over here.  However, today we’re here to discuss everything Season Four, which made its Blu-ray debut on September 12th.   So here we go!  Let’s SWOT things out accordingly down below.

The Big Bang Theory: The Complete Tenth Season (Blu-ray Review)

The Big Bang Theory Season 10 Blu-ray ReviewIt’s time for my September ritual!  The Big Bang Theory returns to the Blu-ray format.  Truth be told I’m excited to be covering the release for the fourth year in a row now.  You can find Gregg Senko’s Blu-ray review coverage of Season 3 here and I took over in season seven here, eight here and the ninth over here.  Plus we now also have exclusive coverage from this year’s Hall H San Diego Comic-Con panel here.  This year it’s the complete tenth season on Blu-ray right here baby.  Warner Bros. always does a bang up on these seasonal Blu-ray releases.  That’s why I’m overjoyed to be tackling this today and hopefully for years to come (please don’t end it).  They can never end the Big Bang Theory from airing anew for years to come can they?  Don’t answer that!  I want to be appreciative for what I have here and I need these guys in my life.  Therefore, let’s celebrate this upcoming Blu-ray release and talk The Big Bang Theory: The Complete Tenth Season.

I Loved IT! (Movie Review)

I wish I could be cool and say I love Stephen King’s 1986 novel IT.  The truth is I’d be lying.  Not only did I never read it but nor have I ever seen the 1990 network television miniseries either.  I know.  I suck.  It goes unsaid that I lived a very sheltered childhood up in Cleveland, Ohio.  Thank goodness I left there five years ago and grew into the responsible young adult you all know and love now.  So let’s fast forward some 30 years here since the book first came out and now IT receives a modernized (so to speak as still set in the 80’s) adaption on the big screen.  It’s actually part of something bigger too as this American Rated-R horror film is just the first installment of a planned two parts.  You had me at Rated-R.  Let’s take a closer look down below at what IT (also known as IT: Part 1 – The Loser’s Club) is all about.  Join me down below and you’ll float too.  I’m just saying.

The Mummy (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

The MummyDespite loving Sofia Boutella in Kingsman: The Secret Service I must admit I wasn’t too keen on this newest monster tale reboot when I saw the first theatrical trailer.  Yawn!  I thought to myself another modern day movie that feels like it has to insert a woman into a leading role normally occupied by a man.  I know that’s a sexist way to look at things, but I’m an old, tired man now and sick of all the ultra sensitivity in this world.  Ha ha.  But seriously, it wasn’t until the second trailer of The Mummy that got me semi-excited for things here.  For some reason it just spoke to me more.  After all though how could one refute the star power of Hollywood’s ageless vampire, Tom Cruise?  That’s a rhetorical question because you can try, but ultimately you’ll fail.  The man can do no wrong in modern day action films.  By the way I don’t count the Jack Reacher films as action films.   However, it was this news here that The Mummy would be the start of Universal’s Dark Universe that really made me take notice of.  I’m all about a well planned out, shared universe full of continuity so I’m super stoked to see where things go from here.  And truth be told I’m forever thankful that 2014’s Dracula Untold was a one off.  Thank the Gods for that!

Wonder Woman (4K UHD VUDU Review)

Wonder Woman VUDU UHD ReviewLast night I attended something pretty cool hosted by VUDU here, a watch party of Wonder Woman.  Since I purchased the 4K UHD stream of it on August 29th I used the viewing opportunity to review the technical merits of the VUDU presentation.  They gave out some really cool prizes too (#jealousy that I did not win any).  Now like George Washington once proclaimed “I cannot tell a lie.”  Wonder Woman was my number one most anticipated film of the calendar year.  Say what?  I’m 100% serious and no I’m not on any drugs.  This is 80 plus years in the making here, folks!  It’s historic!  I would be prone to say Justice League is, but I’m weary about how ridiculous Cyborg looks thus far.  I’m joking of course.  However, I’ll reserve judgement of that until November (as I hear they are working on him in reshoots anyway).  For now let me bask in the ever radiant light of everything Gal Gadot (in Hebrew her first name means “wave” and her surname means “shores”)  and the Amazonian princess she portrays, Wonder Woman.  Call me a sucker, but I just love a strong female protagonist in my action movies, and it doesn’t hurt if they’re hot too.  So you’ve all seen my proverbial masturbation over the three DCEU films that have come before, Man of Steel, Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad, and now it’s time to lasso up Wonder Woman.  Wouldn’t that be spectacular to lasso up Wonder Woman, huh (insert dirty evil thought)?  Ha ha.  Come on!  Let’s get started!

Batman and Harley Quinn (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Before we begin I have to admit something.  Other than Batman: Under the Red Hood and most recently Wonder Woman I have never seen another animated DC Animated Universe film despite how heralded most of them are.  Isn’t that sad?  What got me here for this one though is a combination of three things: I love Harley Quinn, I love The Big Bang Theory and Brandon Peters already reviewed the Limited Edition Blu-ray gift set here so I’m trying to help a brother out.  I saw the Harley taking advantage of Nightwing scene online last week and that provided a mild chuckle.  LOL. I  am a bit sick and twisted like that when it comes to my Harley Quinn.  So what do I have to lose other than a couple hours of my life?  I’m not that special.  Now granted I haven’t heard the greatest of things about this one (although our own Bron Anderson loved it here), but unlike the thought of trying seafood I’ll give this one a chance for Harley that is.  So without further ado let’s talk some Batman and Harley Quinn, DC’s first animated adventure on the 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray format August 29th.   Continue reading ‘Batman and Harley Quinn (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)’

Cabin in the Woods (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Cabin in the Woods 4K ReviewThe Cabin in the Woods is one of those films that proves you should never judge any book by its cover or so to speak.  This is one of those stories for me that’s so much deeper than what appears on the surface.  What’s on the surface you ask?  Well in regards to this movie I see it as your everyday cliche horror/slasher film that we all grew up on the 80’s complete with jocks, sexy chicks and good ole Rated-R gore.  However under the surface it’s so much more.  In fact by the flick’s fiery ending its flipped completely over and insane as can be (in a very good way).  I can go on and on about how much I adore this 2012 gem, but rest assured we’ll cover all that down below.  For the time being I am just stoked that The Cabin in the Woods is getting the red carpet treatment on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray this September 5th.  However, before we get into the UHD Disc’s vitals let’s chat about why this little horror story is so damn scrumptious.

Baywatch: Extended Cut (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Baywatch 4K ReviewIf you’re of my generation, who didn’t watch television’s Baywatch growing up?  I mean of course we all watched for Knight Rider‘s David Hasselhoff and beach babes like Pamela Anderson, Nicole Eggert, Yasmine Bleech and Carmen Electra were just icing on the cake.  Sure (wink, wink).  Baywatch is not only part of our pop culture, but like The Terminator 1 and 2 to most people, part of our beloved childhood too.  So when word of a reboot surfaced regarding turning the nostalgic show into a motion picture I feared the absolute worst.  Yes I feared my childhood would be butchered and erased just like 2015’s Terminator: Genisys did to it.  Ugh!  However, rest assured there was a silver lining in all of this.  Baywatch would unite onscreen two of the hottest comedic stars with some pretty rad beach babes too.  Of course I’m talking about involvement from the likes of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Zac Efron to the big busted Alexandra Daddario.  What?  LOL.  I don’t know how else to describe her besides those bright, Blu-ray eyes she has.  So I was saying yeah Baywatch….

Alien: Covenant (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Alien: Covenant (4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Review)Six years ago I fell in love with the Alien franchise when I was forced to tackle the Alien Anthology Blu-ray box set in my complete review of it all here.  I had never seen the third or fourth flicks before then.  Two years later I became of a bonafide disciple of Ridley Scott’s franchise with the release of Prometheus (as reviewed here).  No dispute here that the original four Alien films are legendary.  You’d be hard pressed to find anybody trash talking those, but Prometheus well that’s a whole different ball of wax.  If you want to talk about a completely divided movie, look no further than 2012’s Prometheus.  Holy hell either people loved it or long time Alien fans completely loathed it.  There was no middle ground whatsoever.  Like it or not it made enough money for Fox to green light a sequel.  That’s the reason we are all here today too, but is Alien: Covenant really a sequel to Prometheus or is something all completely different?  That’s what I was most interested in learning going into last week’s press screening.

Annabelle: Creation Continues The Conjuring Universe w/ Familiar Scares (Movie Review)

Annabelle- CreationNow I want you to ask yourself the following question.  I really want you to think about this for a minute before answering too.  Let it seep in and stew within your brain.  Did we really need anther movie about this Conjuring spinoff, supernatural doll Annabelle?  Um…no!  The correct answer is absolutely not!  What the world needs is probably less of these kinds of horror flick cash grabs, but like it or not here we are.  I might as well get the introductions out of the way so we can get started here.  Ladies and gentlemen put your hands together in wild applause as we have a treat for you tonight with the 2017 supernatural horror film Annabelle: Creation.

Comic-Con 2017: Charlize Theron & ‘Atomic Blonde’ (Movie Review)

I guess for the past couple of years now Entertainment Weekly has put on a Women Who Kick-Ass Panel at Comic-Con International.  This year’s panel featured a single woman, Charlize Theron, showcasing her most recent work Atomic Blonde, which dropped in theaters this week finally and her involvement in Fate of the Furious and one of my personal favorites Mad Max: Fury Road.  This year Entertainment Weekly senior writer Sara Vilkomerson was chosen to sit down with Theron in front of a captive Saturday Hall H crowd that was just rendered speechless by the previous panel, the Justice League.  While I wasn’t impressed with the lack of enthusiasm and knowledge  Vilkomerson employed in her interview of Theron, the latter woman wowed me a lot.  She’s beautiful, yes.  However, she’s also very humble and gracious, but make no mistake about it you don’t want to pick a fight with her.  The proud mother went into detail regarding the endless, grueling hours of training she endured for her role in Atomic Blonde as well as the injuries she was subjected to.  I mean good God she clenched her teeth so hard that she broke two of them.  I wouldn’t mess with a woman like that.  LOL.

Comic-Con 2017: Netflix’s Stranger Things Hall H Panel

Saturday brought us wonderful Marvel and Warner Bros. Hall H panels covered in detail here and here, but perhaps my third most favorite one was Netflix’s Stranger Things.  If you’re unfamiliar with the show and you’re my age, it’s your childhood!  It’s a pop culture phenomenon.  In this Hall H panel we were treated to an in-depth discussion of the series, the journey to Season 2 and never-before-seen footage of what’s to come this October.  They replayed the latter twice as the crowd erupted in wild roar both times.  We even had a surprise guest take the microphone for a question to the onstage cast.  Justice for Barb was also finally served.  New faces in Season 2 include Paul Reiser.  The rest of the cast, young and old, is just as likable in person as their onscreen counterparts on the show are.  Now all I want to know is where’s the Season 1 Blu-ray release?  Ha ha.  Check out all our exclusive photos of the Hall H panel down below.

Comic-Con 2017: HBO’s Westworld Hall H Panel

HBO’s Westworld concluded its critically acclaimed first season this past December and is currently in production filming things for season 2. The series-created, executive produced, and written by Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy is a dark odyssey about the dawn of artificial consciousness and the evolution of sin, based on the 1973 Michael Crichton movie of the same name.   Saturday’s Hall H cast panelists included Ben Barnes as Logan, Ingrid Bolsø Berdal as Armistice, Ed Harris as the Man in Black, Luke Hemsworth as Stubbs, James Marsden as Teddy, Thandie Newton as Maeve, Simon Quarterman as Lee Sizemore, Rodrigo Santoro as Hector, Angela Sarafyan as Clementine, Jimmi Simpson as William, Tessa Thompson as Charlotte Hale, Evan Rachel Wood as Dolores, Shannon Woodward as Elsie and Jeffrey Wright as Bernard.  The panel was moderated by internationally renowned vocal artist/beatboxer/musician/comedian Reggie Watts.

Comic-Con 2017: Marvel’s Hall H Panel

Marvel Comic-Con 2017 Hall HI’m a tad biased since I’m completely smitten by the DCEU movie universe as evident over here, but that doesn’t mean I have blinders on either.  Marvel’s Hall H Comic-Con panel may not have been as energetic, technology embracing or even as fun as the presentation put on by Warner Bros. that same day, but it’s ultimately the quality of the trailers on display that count.  That much I cannot dispute as Thor: Ragnarok, Black Panther and Avengers: Infinity War all look incredible.  So rather than splitting this panel out into three separate posts, which it easily could be, I want to cover them in order below as they happened on the Hall H stage in front of the captive 6,000 plus patrons in attendance.  We waited all day to see this footage and I don’t think anyone left that Hall H with the slightest look of disappointment on their faces.  Come on!  I’ll show you around!
