Brandon’s Blu-ray Wishlist For 2018!

Once again, the time of year has come upon us; the end of the Blu-ray release year. I’m a little later than prior years on this and its because the announcement to release window is becoming incredible short.

Heat – Director’s Definitive Edition (Blu-ray Review)

In the Fall of 2016, I was able to attend a screening of Heat at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, which boasted a brand new 4K restoration of the film, supervised by writer/director Michael Mann. Not that I needed a reminder of how great Mann’s Los Angeles crime saga is, but I […]

Dolphin Tale 2 (Blu-ray Review)

So here we are again with another family film based on the true story of a dolphin named Winter.  For the record, “Another Dolphin Tale” or “A Tale of Two Dolphins” may have been better title ideas to work with, but Dolphin Tale 2 is largely more of the same, as far as this sort […]

The calendar year of 1996 saw a lot of big feature names get released such as Independence Day, Fargo, Trainspotting, Jerry Maguire, The Rock, Scream, From Dusk till Dawn, Twister, The English Patient, Primal Fear and many more, but perhaps none more transcending for two young actors than the movie we are gathered here to […]

An Ashley Judd Sighting Amplifies ‘Olympus Has Fallen’ on Blu-ray!

Stop the press!  I don’t care if it’s only a brief moment…word has it that Ashley Judd makes an appearance in Olympus Has Fallen and that’s good enough for me!  It warms my heart that she’s actually in a movie that’s critically reviewed as being okay because God I swear she has made more bad […]

‘Olympus Has Fallen’ And A 90s Action Movie Rises (Movie Review)

It is funny how some movies strike me differently than others, despite their similarities.  Olympus Has Fallen has all the jingoism, xenophobia, and silliness to match awful films like Red Dawn or Red Tails.  It is also cheap and ugly enough at times to match an awful film like A Good Day To Die Hard.  […]

Frida (Blu-ray Review)

2002’s Frida would be Salma Hayek’s passion project finally come to fruition after so many years of rejections. She obviously had to pay her dues and build herself up as an actress and producer to get this done. Just because you’re hot in this town doesn’t mean you can always get what you want. It […]

Dolphin Tale (Blu-ray Review)

The end of 2011 brought us War Horse and We Bought a Zoo, which were films that really poured on the sentiment.  They were also films that I overall liked, mainly because their aim to be well-meaning and sweet-natured did not affect my judgment on other aspects of the films to arrive at an appropriate […]

De-Lovely (Blu-ray Review)

What happens when the musical genre gets meshed with the biography of the  musician who created some very famous musicals?  That’s what De-Lovely aims to tell in this Blu-ray release.  De-Lovely has a very cool and creative cast featuring the likes of Kevin Kline, Ashley Judd, and Jonathan Pryce.  In addition to the main actors […]

When fellow Why So Blu staff writer Gregg Senko asked me to come up with three albums that changed the world of music for me I jumped at the opportunity.  I said to myself, “This will be a piece of cake.”  Well, little did I know how hard it would be narrowing down my selections […]

The Tooth Fairy Gets Extracted on Blu-ray

This one is just too good to pass up the opportunity to write about.  Ahh…the downward spiral career of my favorite actress Ashley Judd instantly comes to mind.  Can your career get any lower than starring in a comedy called The Tooth Fairy with The Rock?  I think she can pretty much kiss any aspirations of […]

The Daily Blu…October 2, 2009

Oh no!  Not another day of no Blu-ray news and web hosting problems!  Say it ain’t so?  I’m afraid that it.  Oh well.  At least it’s Friday and I do have one bit of Blu-ray news to talk about.  I’m not really feeling good about this news so it pains me to be the bearer […]
