Dawn of the Planet of the Apes (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

If the year 2011 taught us nothing but the fact that good things can come from rebooting a beloved franchise, then I’d be alright to call it a day right here and now.  Never in my wildest dreams could I have ever conjured up such a crazy notion that the quirky Planet of the Apes franchise could ever be […]

Rise of the Planet of the Apes (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Just what the world needed…another reboot of a legendary franchise.   That was exactly my sentiments when I first learned about the production of Rise of the Planet of the Apes.  I remember watching and enjoying the original films as a kid, but not enough to warrant my full attention to what was going on behind […]

Given the research and only having so much to work with, this is always a tough list to put together.

A New & Familiar Adventure In A Galaxy Far Far Away…

I promised myself I wasn’t going to do this.  Since Austin did not screen Star Wars: The Force Awakens for us prior to its release like glorious Los Angeles did for all my friends out there I told myself no way was I going to write a movie review for free about a film entry […]

Brandon’s Top 14 Films Of The Year That Was 2014

All right, its my turn.  Up front, there’s a few movies I didn’t get to.  I haven’t been able to get out and see Whiplash yet.  Selma and Inherent Vice don’t open here in my fair city until the year reads 2015.  In 2014, my little bundle of wonderful daughter was born, so like 2012 […]

TOP 10: Brian White’s Favorite Heavy Hitting Films of 2014

It’s that time of the year again.  My how time flies by, huh?  I generally hate this time of the year not because of the holidays, but because it means nothing but cold and deadness outside and in a reviewer’s world, the dreaded TOP 10 lists as well.  Ugh!  I’m not going to lie.  I […]

TOP 10: Brian White’s Most Obsessed Over Blu-rays of 2014

Unlike recent years, I really didn’t acquire as many Blu-ray titles in 2014 as I typically do in a 12-month calendar.  Sure there are Blu-ray titles that I reviewed and held onto, but the others made their way into my collection when they were either priced exceptionally well (mostly horror sets I never grabbed before) or “Day 1” titles that […]

It’s A New ‘Dawn’ For Caesar And The Planet Of The Apes (Movie Review)

The only thing more complicated than the time traveling plotline of the original Planet of the Apes franchise is realizing that Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is the sequel to Rise of the Planet of the Apes, the reimagining of the fourth film in the previous franchise, which took place before the first […]

We are a little over halfway through 2014 and with that, I figured it would be a good idea for Why So Blu’s writing staff to spread the word on which films they believe to be the best of the year so far (along with some picks for the worst).  This article contains just that, […]

20th Century Fox had the biggest block of time to work with on Saturday at WonderCon and they used it to deliver presentations for four of their upcoming, big budget movies, with one surprise look at another film as well.  Because of the expansive line-up of films presented, I figured it would be best to […]

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey Extended Edition (Blu-ray Review)

Did the world really need this?  Is the world even ready for this?  Wasn’t 10+ hours of theatrical cuts (and even more with the extended editions) enough to sit through back in the day and again on Blu-ray?  Are we ready for three more consecutive years of a tale that’s mainly self-contained in one book […]
