Here’s a film I’m very much interested in seeing get produced. Its Zombinatrix! My pal Bianca Allaine is trying to get it off the ground and like most independent films these days, is taking it to horror and film fans in general to help with some production costs as this one is being paid for out of pocket. But she’s got a sweet deal. When you help donate at least $25, you are going to receive an awesome limited edition T-shirt with artwork designed by Jimmy Giegerich of Baltimore’s own Pizza Party Printing. Keep on reading for some pictures, information and a link to hurry up and go snag yourself a shirt before they are all gone!

Having first made its debut at Comic Con, the first trailer for The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies is now out and it certainly does the job of making this feel like a conclusion of sorts. While I have not been the biggest fan of these Hobbit movies, I certainly look forward to seeing them and appreciate a lot about them. Now Peter Jackson has come closer to wrapping up his second trilogy and appears to be doing so with a film that feels the most in line with Lord of the Rings yet. Also of note, this week is Amazon having a sale on the original Lord of the Rings for 68% off the original price. Continue on to see the trailer, the new poster, and check to out this deal!
There is going to be a lot of ‘Apes’ talk this week. We at Why So Blu were big fans of the 2011 re-imagining of the Planet of the Apes franchise, Rise of the Planet of the Apes, and with Dawn of the Planet of the Apes set to be released on July 11th, we are very much excited for what this entry will have to offer. With that said, a number of deal on Amazon are going on right now, which includes an awesome low-price for the original Planet of the Apes series on Blu-ray. It is not only very cheap, but comes with movie cash to use for your ticket to see Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. The other films, ‘Rise’ and Tim Burton’s remake (if you dare to go down that road) are also fairly cheap as well and also come with movie cash. Continue on to get your hands on these deals, while they are going on!

At last the hills are alive with the Sound of Music on Blu-ray! This is is one of my all time favorite musicals (a genre that doesn’t have that many movies that interest me) and one of the movies that never fails to cheer me up. After all, it was brilliantly directed by Robert Wise and has a stellar cast, great songs and choreography, and breathtaking panoramic visuals that just beg for the Blu-ray treatment. This movie was nominated for 10 Academy Awards and won Best Picture, Best Director (Robert Wise), Best Musical Score, Best Editing, and Best Sound. Julie Andrews was absolutely fantastic in this and this became one of her signature roles (the other being Mary Poppins). If you’d like to read my review of the stand-alone Blu-ray release for this movie, you can do that here, but this is the ultimate box set that has even more goodies than the one I reviewed! This deal lasts this week only so make sure you get your copy while you can! Continue reading ‘Amazon’s Deal of the Week – The Sound of Music Limited Edition Box Set for $38.99 (57% off)!’
While I realize that many people didn’t like Spiderman 3, this is still a great deal for all three Spiderman Blu-rays. Personally, I loved the first two and liked the third and I think most people can agree that Spiderman 2 was one of the best (if not the best) superhero movies ever made. All three movies were directed by Sam Raimi and Tobey Maguire was an inspired choice to play Peter Parker/Spiderman. With other roles played by Alfred Molina, Willem Dafoe, James Franco, Thomas Haden Church, Topher Grace, and Kirsten Dunst, these movies are packed with good people! If you haven’t upgraded your trilogy to Blu-ray yet, this is the perfect time to do it! Continue reading ‘Get the Spiderman Trilogy on Blu-ray for $30 and Free Shipping!’
