John Wick: Chapter 2 (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

In the fall of 2015, everyone was taken by surprise by the popularity of the Keanu Reeves pure action film, John Wick. The Keanu Reeves-led film featured what seemed like a silly premise, but played into becoming an all timer thanks to some fresh, innovative and game changing action choreography that felt a bit of […]

John Wick (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

I could start and stop my film review section right here with Why So Blu reviewer Aaron Neuwirth’s comments on my theatrical review of John Wick where he left the following remarks.  “A dude with long hair, a dog, and Mustang beats up Theon Greyjoy.  Of course you loved this movie.”  He also went on to add […]

Ice Age: Collision Course (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Confession time.  I’ve never seen any of the Ice Age films before.  The saga began back in 2002 when I was still a wee lad in college.  At that age, they looked too kiddie for my refined early 20s taste and certainly weren’t even looking the slightest Pixar-esque.  Now, its 14 years since that first film […]

Forgotten Friday Flick – “Carlito’s Way”

We’re so close to the Sept. 13 release date of the five-star doc De Palma on Blu-ray that there’s already a distinctive smell of candid cinema chatter in the air.  (Just look to Brandon Peters’ very cool recent Raising Cain Blu-ray review for firm evidence!)  And speaking of honest talk about films, let’s hop onto yet […]

Ice Age 5: The Mysterious Asteroid (Movie Review)

The Ice Age film series is about a strange a beast as Sid the sloth. While sequels and diminishing returns can often go hand in hand, this is the rare big-budget animated series that lost its way quickly, yet still manages to find success. Ice Age: Collision Course is not a very good film, as […]

Cranston’s Great Undercover In ‘The Infiltrator’ (Movie Review)

There’s something to be said for how compelling post-Breaking Bad Bryan Cranston is. At 60-years old, the actor is about 20 years too old to be playing U.S. Customs agent Robert Mazur, the man who went undercover to infiltrate the money-laundering organization of drug lord Pablo Escobar. Still, his rugged face is one full of […]

John Wick Lets The Good Times Roll on Blu-ray This February!

If you don’t come out of your John Wick viewing pumped up, then there’s something wrong with you medically speaking.  The film has it all: money, cars (oh the American muscles cars), gangs, guns, girls, violence, puppies, loud rock music and some good old-fashioned hardcore action, something sorely missing from most flicks nowadays because of that watered […]

‘John Wick’ Is The Bomb! (Movie Review)

This is just great.  In a time where we get a lot of action movies designed to build into some sort of franchise, here comes John Wick, a film most likely designed to be a one-off attempt at showing an older Keanu Reeves kick ass in some very brutal ways.  The film is bound to […]

‘John Wick’ Serves Revenge With Heated Attachment (Movie Review)

I normally don’t do this, nor have I ever done this before, but I can’t help it.  I need to start this John Wick movie review off by quickly discussing the plot of the film from a very high level because it’s actually the very reason why I wanted to see this film.  Keanu Reeves […]

Hey, you’ve seen Brandon Peters’ review for the Spike Lee Joint Collection, Volume 1.  Now it’s time for Volume 2, are you ready?  Do you want to see it?  Well good, because apparently Disney felt the need to put together a number of Spike Lee’s Touchstone produced films into random Blu-ray packages for people to […]

‘Chef’ Is Deliciously Entertaining (Movie Review)

It does not take a whole lot for a film to win me over if it has a lot of charm. Get the right cast and allow them to have fun that is evident in the film and I will be happy to sit back and enjoy what has been put in front of me. […]

Walking With Dinosaurs: The Movie (Blu-ray Review)

Walking With Dinosaurs was a pretty big disappointment for Fox this past winter.  The $80 million budgeted film only took back $36 million in the United States.  When added, the overseas totals take it to $125.5 million overall.  But, Fox claims that the intake globally is still very lackluster.  The film featured computer generated dinosaurs […]
