An interesting mix of smaller movie notables this time out (T2-3D aside!) with a few films from previous weeks that I just saw in my humble effort to keep the all ardent cinefiles up to date.  (Plus the empty month of August sure has some slim pickins!)  Killer robots from the future now in 4K […]

Why So Blu’s Staff Picks For 2014’s Best Films of the Year… So Far

We are a little over halfway through 2014 and with that, I figured it would be a good idea for Why So Blu’s writing staff to spread the word on which films they believe to be the best of the year so far (along with some picks for the worst).  This article contains just that, […]

‘How To Train Your Dragon 2’ Take You To The Theater Immediately (Movie Review)

It is amazing how things work sometimes. How To Train Your Dragon gets credit for being a sleeper success, as many were not thrilled by the marketing, but it ended up making big bucks and spawning a whole franchise (sequels, TV shows, etc.). I was actually quite intrigued by the trailers for the first film […]

Fly High And Soar Through The Heavens With ‘How To Train Your Dragon 2’ (Movie Review)

While I tend to be a very impatient fellow who’s always wanting something else as fast as it can be handed to me, there are some things worth the wait.  There are such things as the perfect film.  Lightning can surely strike the same place twice.  And for those reasons and so many more, that’s […]

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 […]

The Art Of The Steal (Blu-ray Review)

Anchor Bay’s The Art Of The Steal is another one of those movies making the Video OnDemand market even more deserving of your attention.  This one even boasts a pretty impressive cast.  Nobody is a “wow how’d they get them!?” kinda deal, but as a collection of people its rather enough to peak your interests […]

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 […]

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 […]

This is the End is an apocalyptic comedy film where James Franco, Jonah Hill, Seth Rogen, Jay Baruchel, Danny McBride and Craig Robinson all portray fictional characters of themselves as they are forced to face the true meaning of friendship and redemption as the world ends around them.  Does that sound stupid to you or […]

WonderCon 2013: This Is The End

Recently, we have seen films like 2012, Melancholia, Seeking a Friend for the End of the World, and even Children of Men, to an extent, depict what it would be like to see the world come to an end.  Just to round things out, I guess, we now have the version of that story in […]

The Sorcerer’s Apprentice (Blu-ray Review)

I recently had the chance to talk about this film with it’s director, Jon Turteltaub which you can read here and now I’ve had the chance to watch his movie on Blu-ray to see the finished result. I wasn’t sure how the movie would turn out as it was based on the most popular cartoon […]
