Encapsulated Movie Reviews – Five New Indie Titles

There’s no shortage of lessor known film fare this week, though not all the movie news is good.  But frankly scouring the smaller cinema is a lot like gambling – even though the house has the advantage there’s always hope for that rare big payday.  (Aka gems and duds will get reviewed!)  Going from high […]

Deadpool (Blu-ray Review)

This year features a variety of superhero films and it turns out one of the wildest, offbeat ones will remain one of the year’s biggest hits. Yes, while the world deals with the various universes being created by Marvel Studios and Warner Bros., Fox has been plenty confident in this break from their X-Men films […]

Deadpool Comes to Blu-ray and DVD May 10th with Maximum Effort!

You may not have seen this coming, but Deadpool became one of the most successful superhero movies ever this year. Ryan Reynolds returned to the role he made infamous in X-Men Origins: Wolverine and made everyone much happier thanks to the committed work from everyone involved. The film is ridiculous, irreverent and full of action and comedy […]

Deadpool: Chimichangas For Everyone! (Movie Review)

I’m sure it’s part of my nature, but I think was one of the most pessimistic people going into the Deadpool screening this past Thursday evening.  It’s not because I feared that every funny, ludicrous moment was probably played out in the trailers, but instead overtime I think of Deadpool I think of that terrible X-Men […]

In The Blood (Blu-ray Review)

There is only so much to say about movies like In The Blood.  It is a thriller that had minimal exposure upon its initial release and will live in the realm of streaming and cheap Blu-ray bins.  That said, as far as these fairly straight-forward action vehicles for lower-profile stars and fun character actors go, […]

Gina Carano “Acts” & Kicks Butt in ‘IN THE BLOOD’ on Blu-ray This June

While some of us at Why So Blu are concerned whether or not MMA fighter Gina Carano can be considered an actress (I personally felt she was fine in Haywire), she has another starring role to prove herself in with In The Blood.  Here are some official words about it:  Gina Carano stars as Ava, a […]

Fast & Furiou6: The Search For Letty (Movie Review)

This is the year that the Fast & Furious franchise came to play.  While 2011’s wonderfully entertaining (and superior) Fast Five had the safety of an April release date to ensure its spot as a box office smash, Fast & Furiou6 (which is my preferred title for the film) arrives in theaters on Memorial Day […]

Haywire’s a Misfire

Haywire’s protagonist, Mallory Kane, played by statuesque Mixed Martial Artist brawler Gina Carano, looks a lot like a younger version of America’s undisputed girl next door, Sandra Bullock.  Too bad in her leading “lady” debut, she has all the charm of the door.  Not that any of this will matter to moviegoers not burned out […]

‘Haywire’ Is Streamlined, Offbeat, And Brutal

Once again, the month of January has actually managed to deliver some disposable fun, this time in the form of an action thriller from director Steven Soderbergh.  Haywire falls into the director’s category of more mainstream, but it certainly boasts a strong cast and enough offbeat qualities to make it stand out a bit.  Of […]

SDCC 2011: Relativity Media: Haywire and The Raven

It was easily going to be a difficult task to follow a panel that featured Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson in Hall H on Friday, at San Diego Comic Con, but the folks at Relativity Media attempted to do so anyway.  While not quite blowing anyone out of the water, this panel contained exciting previews […]
