Wonder Woman (Blu-ray 3D Review)

A lot of this is going to be a rehash of my already published 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray review here and 4K UHD VUDU review here.  However, you’re here solely for the 3D presentation of it all.  I know that.  So with that disclaimer out of the way let’s begin here!  Like George Washington once proclaimed […]

Wonder Woman (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

A lot of this is going to be a rehash of my 4K UHD VUDU review of this title formerly published here.  So with that disclaimer out of the way let’s begin here!  Like George Washington once proclaimed “I cannot tell a lie.”  Wonder Woman was my number one most anticipated film of the calendar […]

Wonder Woman (4K UHD VUDU Review)

Last night I attended something pretty cool hosted by VUDU here, a watch party of Wonder Woman.  Since I purchased the 4K UHD stream of it on August 29th I used the viewing opportunity to review the technical merits of the VUDU presentation.  They gave out some really cool prizes too (#jealousy that I did […]

Wonder Woman: Beauty, Brains and Brawn! (Movie Review)

Like George Washington once proclaimed “I cannot tell a lie.”  Wonder Woman is my number one most anticipated film of the year.  Say what?  I’m 100% serious and no I’m not on any drugs.  This is 80 plus years in the making here, folks!  I would be prone to say Justice League is, but I’m […]

Wonder Woman Ends DC Cinematic Crisis (Movie Review)

It would appear that Wonder Woman is the result of studio heads and producers thinking things through a bit more and allowing for more creative freedom. Thanks to some talented filmmakers and actors, this is the film the DCEU needed to get themselves out of the hole that began with an underwhelming Man of Steel […]

There Are Colorful Lies In Burton’s ‘Big Eyes’ (Movie Review)

The chance to see a director switch gears and focus on something far separated from their previous work can be exciting.  As a Tim Burton fan, I do not fault him for making a lot of films that seem right up his alley.  That the recent output has not been as compelling as the films […]

‘The Congress’ Features The Wright Ambition (Movie Review)

I saw writer/director’s Ari Folman’s 2008 film Waltz with Bashir and was very intrigued by where he would go next.  That film revolved around a character searching for his lost memories as an Israeli soldier and was made using unique animation techniques.  Folman’s new film, The Congress, is similarly about finding one’s self in a […]

Hitchcock (Blu-ray Review)

The idea of a movie revolving around the making of Psycho is certainly an intriguing one, made better by the fantastic cast that was involved, with a wonderful looking Anthony Hopkins in the guise of the Master of Suspense.  That is not exactly what I got, but what I liked about this movie, is how […]

Dial H For ‘Hitchcock’ (Movie Review)

Among the people that I would offhand list as my favorite directors, Alfred Hitchcock would be one of them.  The movie I regard as my favorite horror movie (let alone a favorite movie of mine in general) is Psycho.  The idea of a movie revolving around the making of Psycho is certainly an intriguing one, […]

Magic City: The Complete First Season (Blu-ray Review)

I think I was watching Spartacus: Vengeance on Blu-ray last month, when I had seen the first previews for Magic City: The Complete First Season. It took hold right then and there and I sent out a mass text to my fellow Why So Blu writers asking what the hell that was? It looked like […]

Wrath of the Titans (Blu-ray Review)

I guess the world didn’t have enough with the 2010 redux of Clash of the Titans.  That’s a good thing in my opinion.  In many ways, especially in the visual effects category, I thoroughly enjoyed the remake much more than the 80’s odyssey.  I was young and naïve back then.  Heck, back then I thought […]
