‘Annabelle’ And Her Pasadena Dream House (Movie Review)

Annabelle is the cinematic equivalent of, “who cares,” which I was tempted to write as the lone words to describe my thoughts on the film.  There is nothing offensively bad about this film, but there is really just nothing here.  With very few original ideas and the amount of story that could be seen as […]

We’ve come to it at last…my Top-10 film list for the year 2013. I’ll be upfront about it and say that I did not see most of the major and non-major films of 2013. I am only listing the films that I saw that made an actual impact in my life, for better or for […]

Insidious: Chapter 2 Blu-ray Makes The Perfect Stocking Stuffer

Christmas is looking better and better this year!  Not only will I be in a warmer climate for the holiday season this year, but I will also have one of my favorite horror movies this year in tow too when Insidious: Chapter 2 comes home to Blu-ray on Christmas Eve.  What a great present or […]

The Conjuring (Blu-ray Review)

I’m going to be completely honest with everyone here.  The Conjuring flat out looked like a movie I would want to see upon first viewing of the film’s trailer earlier in the year.  If I didn’t get into an early press screening of the film, then you’d better believe I would have laid down my hard earned […]

‘Insidious: Chapter 2’ Ditches Darth Maul & Fights The Past (Movie Review)

I can’t help it, but I’m a firm believer that once you strike gold…DON’T be greedy.  I hold that same belief when it comes to 2011’s Insidious (as you can see from my love and praise of it over here).  The movie was a fresh of breath air for the horror genre and despite it’s […]

‘The Conjuring’ Will Scare Your Mama This October on Blu-ray!

Today must be National James Wan day, huh?  First the release of Insidious: Chapter 2 (and review here) and now the announcement of The Conjuring scaring the bejesus out of you on October 22nd courtesy of Warner Bros. Home Entertainment.  You can’t say James Wan is just sitting idle and not going places…he’s driving “fast […]

‘Insidious’: Back 2 The Further (Movie Review)

It stands to reason that Insidious Chapter 2 exists.  The first film became a sleeper hit, as director James Wan and writer Leigh Whannel (the creators of Saw) combined forces with the producers of Paranormal Activity, Oren Peli and Jason Blum, to make a sufficiently scary horror film.  Insidious was a spooky film that twisted […]

‘The Conjuring’ Is Rated R For Really Trying To Be Scary (Movie Review)

As much good as The Conjuring has in it, I wish the marketing didn’t spoil the film’s key scene.  I am not going to delve to deep, but Lili Taylor (one of the unluckiest actresses, given that for such seemingly nice woman, she always seems to play emotionally or physically scarred characters) is involved in […]

4 Things ‘The Conjuring’ Has Going For It (Movie Review)

I’m going to be completely honest with everyone here.  The Conjuring flat out looks like a movie I would want to see.  If I wasn’t getting into an early press screening of the film, then you’d better believe I’d be laying down my hard earned cash to cover the price of admission over the weekend.  […]

Comic-Con 2013: INSIDIOUS: CHAPTER 2 – SDCC Fan Experience!!

Insidious certainly caused a stir for us at Why So Blu?, as I know that Brian, Gerard. and myself, at the very least, were big fans of the 2010 horror film that ended up being a huge success.  Director James Wan is certainly a busy guy these days, with his latest film The Conjuring arriving […]

Brian’s Unquestionable TOP 10 Films of 2011

It’s that time again.  Another year has flown by and I’m still proverbially in the same place and physically in the same chair as I was last year.  My how things don’t always change like you want them to, but that’s the beauty of looking forward to next year and all the endless possibilities dreams, […]

The Why So Blu Crew’s Favorite Flicks Of Summer 2011

So the summer movie season has come to an end, but that does not mean us here at Why So Blu can’t have one last hurrah.  With such an assortment of different films that came out this past summer (a particularly crowded one, which benefited from having a lot of good crowd pleasers to offer), […]

Insidious (Blu-ray Review)

The gruesome twosome in the horror world known as director James Wan (Saw, Death Sentence, Dead Silence) and writer Leigh Whannel (Saw, Dead Silence) have come back to wreak havoc with their latest horror film Insidious. On this journey into darkness fans will have to bite their tongues, because Insidious is a PG-13 venture.  Yeah, […]

Something ‘Insidious’ Lurks on Blu-ray This July!

This is one press release that couldn’t wait until tomorrow.  Cast your stones at me.  I don’t care.  I just got out of a press screening of The Hangover: Part II and despite my love for those films, I can safely say it doesn’t come close to touching the magic of Insidious…THE MOST PROFITABLE MOVIE […]

An ‘Insidious’ Build Leads To An Effectively Scary Film

I think perception plays a key role when one makes a decision about going to see a horror film.  While I would not say I am a snob when it comes to horror films, I do consider myself pretty choosy about which ones I see, especially when it comes down to what the film is […]

Something “Insidious” This Way Comes

I’ve been keeping both eyes on the latest project from Saw creators James Wan and Leigh Whannell for quite a while now.  Insidious looks to be their latest most twisted creation to date.  Shot on a reported 1 million dollar budget, it looks to scare up audiences just like the first Saw film did back […]

Top 8 Upcoming Games to Films

For all of you familiar with my former TOP 5 list, you’re aware that my opinion on video game to film adaptations, like most of you, is fairly luke-warm.  My feeling isn’t that they lack potential but need a strong and passionate director behind the scenes to execute it successfully.  After a recent IGN article […]
