The Homesman Is Surreal, Grim Stuff (Movie Review)

How grim is too grim and when does it just start becoming a little humorous?  Earlier this year we had a novel idea for a film in the form of A Million Ways to Die in the West.  That film did not work for me overall, but the idea of making a western film that […]

3 Days to Kill (Blu-ray Review)

I missed 3 Days to Kill in theaters but all I knew was that it was directed by McG and co-written/produced by Luc Besson, and it starred Kevin Costner. The trailers looked good enough but I was not able to make it in time before the film left theaters. Now I have the Blu-ray and have finally […]

Ender’s Game (Blu-ray Review)

It was unfortunate to not see this film take off big, theatrically.  I was quite impressed by what I saw in theaters, given my adoration for the book, but the film could not quite connect with the masses in the same way that something like The Hunger Games has proven to do.  Based on the […]

‘Ender’s Game’ Is A Fine Speaker For The Book (Movie Review)

Ender’s Game, the Hugo and Nebula Award-winning novel by Orson Scott Card, is one of my favorite books of all time.  The concept of a film adaptation has always been an intriguing one to me, but something I had long put off as ever actually happening.  These feelings came from a younger me, but I […]

Comic-Con 2013: Summit Presents Divergent And Ender’s Game

Given all of the Star Wars news that didn’t happen at Comic Con this year, I may as well put out an article that has to deal with another movie about Harrison Ford and a war in the stars, so here it is.  Summit Entertainment had a presentation that occurred in a packed Hall H […]

Ender’s Game Teaser Trailer Has Arrived

Ender’s Game has continued to seem like one of those things that would just never happen.  I am a huge fan of the award-winning novel by Orson Scott Card, but given the challenge that the story represents in creating a film that could really work, I can see why the film has remained in development […]

True Grit (Blu-ray Review)

Father’s Day is coming, so we decided that it would be more than appropriate if Why So Blu posted a nice double header of western Blu-ray madness.  True Grit is part one of the equation with Once Upon A Time In The West being part two.  I remember seeing the teaser trailer for True Grit […]

Coen Brothers Replace The Duke with The Dude and Test His ‘True Grit’

One of the running themes in many films directed by the Coen brothers (Fargo, No Country for Old Men) has revolved around the idea that they do not seem to like their characters (there is also another running gag that their characters are mostly, for lack of a better word, dumb).  As much as we […]
