‘Monster Trucks’ Is A Silly Creature Feature For Kids (Movie Review)

Remember that 80s cartoon Monster Trucks? It was about a strange creature from underground that inhabited a kid’s truck. The monster, the kid, his girlfriend and a scientist would go on to have adventures, while G-man came after them. If this isn’t ringing a bell, it’s because I made all of that up. Not made […]

‘The Lone Ranger’ Trades A Pile Of Silver For An Overblown Adventure (Movie Review)

In 2002, audiences were able to see what came of a failed film that would have starred Johnny Depp.  This film was Lost in La Mancha, a documentary that chronicled the attempt by director Terry Gilliam to make a film about Don Quixote, only to be undone by production and budget problems, forcing the film […]

Johnny Depp’s ‘The Lone Ranger’ Show (Movie Review)

When I first learned that Disney was bringing back The Lone Ranger to the big screen I have to admit, I got rather excited.  Despite not being a huge fan of Westerns, I have fond childhood memories of the masked fighter of injustice and his white stallion, Silver.  Hi-ho Silver!  Away!  However, I had to […]

‘Broken City’ Has A Lot That Needs Fixing (Movie Review)

When a new movie that stars Mark Wahlberg, Russell Crowe, and Catherine Zeta Jones comes out in January, some tend to wonder why.  After having seen Broken City, the answer is clearer; it’s not a very good movie and doesn’t have much going on that would scream spring or fall release.  This film has a […]

True Grit (Blu-ray Review)

Father’s Day is coming, so we decided that it would be more than appropriate if Why So Blu posted a nice double header of western Blu-ray madness.  True Grit is part one of the equation with Once Upon A Time In The West being part two.  I remember seeing the teaser trailer for True Grit […]
