I Am Steve McQueen (Blu-ray Review)

Steve McQueen was certainly “the man” when it comes to the start of action heroes, and his run in the 1960s and 1970s.  Bullitt, The Getaway, The Thomas Crown Affair, The Great Escape and many others are downright staples of anyone studying action in film.  And McQueen was easily one of the biggest and most […]

TOP 10: Brian White’s Favorite Heavy Hitting Films of 2014

It’s that time of the year again.  My how time flies by, huh?  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 lists as well.  Ugh!  I’m not going to lie.  I […]

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes (Blu-ray Review)

If the year 2011 taught us nothing but the fact that good things can come from rebooting a beloved franchise, then I’d be alright to call it a day right here and now.  Never in my wildest dreams could I have ever conjured up such a crazy notion that the quirky Planet of the Apes franchise could ever be […]

It’s A New ‘Dawn’ For Caesar And The Planet Of The Apes (Movie Review)

The only thing more complicated than the time traveling plotline of the original Planet of the Apes franchise is realizing that Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is the sequel to Rise of the Planet of the Apes, the reimagining of the fourth film in the previous franchise, which took place before the first […]

RoboCop – 2014 (Blu-ray Review)

It’s the reboot that seemed an interesting but dangerous venture.  The original Paul Verhoven classic is damn near as perfect a movie as you can get.  As unnecessary as the reboot sounded, interesting names kept popping into it.  At the outset, this was a Darren Aronofsky project, but he exited.  Even the eventual director Jose […]

WonderCon 2014: 20th Century Fox Presentation Part 1: How To Train Your Dragon 2 and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

20th Century Fox had the biggest block of time to work with on Saturday at WonderCon and they used it to deliver presentations for four of their upcoming, big budget movies, with one surprise look at another film as well.  Because of the expansive line-up of films presented, I figured it would be best to […]

‘Robocop’ Fails Its Prime Directive (Movie Review)

There is a reason why robots, cyborgs, and similar devices have gotten a lot of attention in science fiction over the years.  The idea of man creating a machine and what that could mean for life is an intriguing concept that can play on both the positives and negatives of the scenario.  Taking it further […]

Good Cop, Bad Cop(s), Robocop (Movie Review)

Going into this screening last night I was fearful of only one thing.  Please God!  Don’t let this be a horrible remake like 2012’s Total Recall.  Despite the beauty of Kate Beckinsale in it, life is too precious and short for something of that immeasurable quality.  So here we are and there’s really no way […]

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes Trailer Debuts

Last week was busy with trailers for many big releases next year (posts can be found HERE and HERE) and this week adds one more hotly anticipated summer film: Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.  As I recall, the majority of us at Why So Blu were big fans the 2011 sci-fi prequel/reboot, which […]

Paranoia (Blu-ray Review)

Paranoia is a film that came and went last summer that you probably blinked and missed it.  The film didn’t even place top 10 in the box office on its opening weekend (#13).  Its surprising too as the film sports a Harrison Ford, Gary Oldman and a fresh young face from a wildly popular film […]
