The Blackcoat’s Daughter (Blu-ray Review)

Here’s a nifty little thriller that places emphasis on dread and atmosphere over obvious scares. The Blackcoat’s Daughter has been making its way through film festivals for the better part of two years, with the title of February. This past February, the re-titled film finally hit theaters and VOD with unfortunately little fanfare (though Why So Blu’s Jason […]

Yet another genre spanning hodgepodge of flicks this week satisfying the movie geek need for smaller film fare.  Romance and espionage in the midst of the Cold War, zombies in a strip club, docs on damned jazz trumpeters and terror tales with a demonic slant all make up the films in this weeks edition of […]

Scream Queens: The Complete First Season (DVD Review)

Because writer/director/producer Ryan Murphy was not busy enough with American Horror Story and American Crime Story, he also decided to follow up Fox’s Glee with another over-the-top series that takes on the horror genre to a lighter degree with Scream Queens. Packed with both veteran and younger stars, the concept is fun enough, with this […]

Nerve (Blu-ray Review)

Nerve was a film I kinda wrote off last summer.  The trailer played with a quite a few films I went to see, but it looked like one that gave away everything and it seemed to skew younger than I’d be interested in.  Not that an aspect like that would keep me from seeing something, […]

‘Nerve’ Dares To Examine The Thrills Of Social Media (Movie Review)

The central idea of Nerve is one that sounds both ridiculous and completely accurate, based on the society of today. Directors Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman (of Catfish fame) have taken a script by Jessica Sharzer, adapted from a YA novel by Jeanne Ryan and developed a high school kids-focused thriller that doubles as social […]

We’re The Millers (Blu-ray Review)

Come on!  Let’s be serious here!  I initially only saw this movie for two main reasons.  First, I had to check out Jennifer Aniston’s banging stripper body (tell me who didn’t) and second, when that boy starts singing “Don’t Go Chasing Waterfalls” in the RV at the end of the film’s theatrical trailer, he had […]

‘We’re The Millers’ And The Audience May Laugh (Movie Review)

While I have seen plenty of raunchy comedies (This Is The End, The To Do List) and ones that skew towards the darker side (The World’s End, The Hangover: Part III), let alone perfectly safe comedies (The Internship) this year, I can’t say there have been too many pure wacky comedies.  I guess The Heat […]

Spend Some Family Time With ‘We’re The Millers’ (Movie Review)

Come on!  Let’s be serious here!  I’m only seeing this movie for two main reasons.  First, I had to check out Jennifer Aniston’s banging stripper body (who doesn’t) and second, when that boy starts singing “Don’t Go Chasing Waterfalls” in the RV at the end of the film’s theatrical trailer, he had me at hello.  […]

The Art of Getting By (Blu-ray Review)

The tagline on the cover art for the Blu-ray for The Art of Getting By states, “From the studio that brought you Juno and (500) Days of Summer.”  It is basically stating, “If you liked those films, you might like this one.”  What is should have stated is, “If you liked those films, stick with […]

‘Scream 4’ Stabs Its Meta Soul In The Face

I had a chance to watch the opening of Scream once I got home, after watching this third sequel.  I think those 10 minutes may be the best thing that director Wes Craven has ever done.  The sequence has a lot of fun playing with convention, ratcheting up the tension, and then paying off in […]

‘It’s Kind of a Funny Story’ is a Pretty Apt Description

A mildly entertaining comedy drama that functions like a John Hughes film set in a psychiatric ward.  There are elements present that could have made this a much better movie, chief among them being the performance by Zach Galifianakis, but the overall tone of the film never quite pulls off being both effectively comedic and […]

Valentine’s Day (Blu-ray Review)

What can be more indicative of a romantic comedy than the title of Valentine’s Day?  Sure it’s sappy, and sure it’s formulaic as hell, but I just can’t shake the minority feeling that when I say compared to the handful of lackluster films I have seen theatrically these first five months of 2010, Valentine’s Day […]
