‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’ Erases The Sting of Many Bad Memories and Replaces With Amnesia (Movie Review)

Although I cannot claim to be a huge X-Men fanboy, I went into this past Tuesday night’s press screening of X-Men: Days of Future Past with a gusto of glee and optimism, not to mention excitement, after being so let down by the mediocre Godzilla last week.  And why not?  The past two films, The Wolverine and First Class, were actually really […]

‘X-Men’: Logan’s Run Back To The Future (Movie Review)

How do you bring everyone together? That is the question returning X-Men director Bryan Singer must have been set on answering in his attempt to not only combine the casts from nearly every previous X-Men film, but find a way to satisfy everyone with what is basically the biggest X-Men film ever. The results are […]

The X-Men: Days of Future Past’s Full Trailer And A New Poster Debut

Here is the second trailer for X-Men: Days of Future Past.  Given how quiet marketing has been, as far as revealing plot details regarding one of the best story lines in the X-Men comics goes, this new trailer will surely satisfy those on board with the popular mutant franchise, as it has plenty to offer as […]

Comic-Con 2013: 20th Century Fox Panel

Although Fox never listed what was going to be covered during their Comic-Con panel this year, I knew I had to be there because I was pretty sure that The Wolverine would be included and I had a sneaky suspicion that we might get to see some X-Men: Days of Future Past footage.  I was […]

‘The East’ Points You Towards Freegan Eco-Terrorists (Movie Review)

The East is a low-budget thriller about espionage and eco-terrorism.  It comes from writer/director Zal Batmanglij and co-writer/star Brit Marling, who previously collaborated together on 2012’s The Sound of My Voice.  With that film, along with 2011’s Another Earth, I have been quite impressed with Marling’s work in features thus far, and The East continues […]

Woody Allen Meanders ‘To Rome’

It is kind of fun to reference To Rome with Love as “this year’s Woody Allen film”.  Allen seemingly works non-stop, releasing new films on a near yearly basis and has a pretty strong batting average overall that most other filmmakers would kill to have.  Especially given his creative freedom, Allen has enjoyed plenty of […]

‘Super’ Sticks A Wrench Into Its Twisted, Darkly Comic Tale

So I don’t tend to write about my own process and circumstances when writing very often, but I am going to point out something about James Gunn’s film Super, which relates to me.  I was at a loss for a few days after seeing this film, before finally sitting down to write this review.  It […]

Inception (Blu-ray Review)

At least once a year I go into a theatrical viewing and unexpectedly walk out a changed man.  Why?  It’s all a result of the movie going experience.  It’s either something so radically new, something I wasn’t expecting or something so revolutionary and out there that I am metaphorically b#tch slapped across the face and […]

Inception Mind-Numbing, Not Mind-Blowing

I can already feel the masses getting their torches and pitchforks ready for me on this one.  Is this my Avatar of 2010?  What I’m getting at is last year I was the lone wolf here on Why So Blu, ultimately not impressed by Avatar like the rest of the world was.  Not quite getting […]

‘Inception’ Takes You Deep Down The Rabbit Hole…

Silence.  You can hear a pin drop.  Tension.  Everyone is on the edge of his or her seat.  Suspension.  What’s going to happen next?  Thrilling.  Don’t dare take your eyes off the screen as every moment is of grave importance.  Such was the atmosphere this week at the press screening for Christopher Nolan’s newest masterpiece, […]

Whip It Rolls Onto Blu-ray This January…

The press tagline reads…”Ditching the beauty pageant circuit, a rebellious teenager finds her own ‘tribe’ and uncovers an unshakable bond with her mother.”  And here I was hoping Whip It would be about girl-on-girl physical confrontations, bumping and tumbling in the world of roller derby games.  Despite my forecasts, Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment will […]
