Gold (Blu-ray Review)

Gold was a film that went through a bit of a lengthy journey to finally getting its way to production. Pitched as a more modern Treasure of the Sierra Madre, the film once had director Michael Mann attached to film it.  Mann eventually left it to film Blackhat.  Finally the film was made and released […]

‘Gold’ Finder (Movie Review)

By the end of Gold, I was more concerned with star Matthew McConaughey’s choice to invest himself into the character of Kenny Wells than the story I was just told. Given how the film is loosely based on the Bre-X mining scandal from 1993, seeing McConaughey develop a gut and shave his head to create […]

Pete’s Dragon (Blu-ray Review)

There were a lot of disappointments and film that tended to underwhelm many this summer at the movie theater.  A couple biggies happened to show up here and there that both hit big with the money and the critical success, but not a whole lot of them did much of both.  But then, there was […]

Pete’s Dragon Is All Joy And Wonder Covered In Fur (Movie Review)

Following the success of The Jungle Book and Cinderella, Pete’s Dragon may not be the film people expected Disney to remake next.  Mistakenly seen by some as a classic, that 1977 film came and went with little regard, but co-writer/director David Lowery (Ain’t Them Bodies Saints) has swooped in with a low-key character drama that […]

Brian White’s Top 10 Favorite Films of 2015

It’s that time of the year again.  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 Favorite Films lists as well.  Last year there was an influx of good movies released theatrically (IMO) making […]

Review: Jurassic World

Finally delivering on the promise of John Hammond, Jurassic World is a theme park we’ve all dreamed of. A place where people can ride a Triceratops. A place where you can roam in the middle of a  Stegosaurus herd in a gyro sphere. Where you can take a boat tour down the river, and travel […]

Welcome To ‘Jurassic World’ (Movie Review)

In preparation of Jurassic World, like a nerd, I spent the entire weekend cramming in the previous three films.  It’s safe to say that I’ve seen the first one like a hundred times, but the latter two, I honestly had no recollection of.  I also have to admit, these films aren’t really my favorites either. […]

Steven Spielberg returns to executive produce the long-awaited next installment of his groundbreaking Jurassic Park series, Jurassic World.  Colin Trevorrow directs the epic action-adventure from a screenplay he wrote with Derek Connolly.  Frank Marshall and Patrick Crowley join the team as producers.  However, none of those names will move ticket sales like the red hot […]

The Twilight Saga Extended Editions Triple Feature (Blu-ray Review)

We’re all older. We’re all wiser. It’s been a couple years removed from the Twilight craze. We can all now agree that Jacob was the wiser choice. Let’s be honest – Bella made a mistake marrying Edward. One can only arrive at that conclusion after submitting themselves to a re-watch of the first three films. […]

Jurassic World Trailer Premiere Plus New Images!

“Clever girl.”  Well this is more exciting than I was expecting.  Jurassic World is coming and while I may not have many nice things to say about the previous Jurassic Park sequels (I like 3 more than The Lost World though), I still have a continue interest in dinosaurs and the world that these films exist in.  Now we […]

“50/50” Tips The Odds In Your Favor

Cancer Comedy!  See, when you scream that at someone, besides the natural awkward chuckle some may have, selling this idea may not be the obvious path to success.  There is a tendency to make a film covering this sort of topic feel too sentimental or overly expressive in how it wants to make you feel.  […]

‘The Help’ on Path for Oscar

Yes, yes, I know. This isn’t the typical Why So Blu movie review. We focus on pop culture flicks, usually consisting of comedies, science fiction, and kick-ass action films. The Help does not fall under any of those three categories. Yet, like last year’s The King’s Speech, this movie is too good not to talk about here.  Just […]

Hereafter (Blu-ray Review)

Clint Eastwood and Matt Damon have re-teamed to bring us the psychological thriller-drama Hereafter.  This is Clint’s thirty fifth film as director.  The subject  matter depicted in Hereafter may offend or disturb certain individuals with the recent tragedy in Japan.  It truly is art imitating life.  Hereafter was pulled from theaters due to the sensitivity […]
