Smurfs: The Lost Village (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Well, here we go again.  Another Smurfs movie put out on 4K Ultra-HD, and another task at hand for me. As you’ll recall, I thoroughly enjoyed my last experience just a couple months ago (Sarcasm font). The Lost Village is the third film in the ongoing Smurfs cinematic franchise. I didn’t see the second one, […]

Miami Vice: The Complete Series (DVD Review)

Nothing represents the best of the 80’s better than Miami Vice.  From the pastel colors to the sock free loafers, from the fast Ferrari’s to the sizzling speed boats, the adventures of Vice Detectives James “Sonny” Crockett and Ricardo “Rico” Tubbs were not only influential to an entire decade, but also a huge part of […]

This ‘Money Monster’ Is Pretty Tame (Movie Review)

As nice as it may be to champion an original thriller with big movie stars and some relevant themes, Money Monster doesn’t do much to challenge the audience. That’s not necessarily required, but when a studio has the audacity to title a film Money Monster, you should be expecting more bite. There is a somewhat […]

Secret In Their Eyes (Blu-ray Review)

With a strong cast and a talented writer/director at the helm, remaking the 2009 Argentine film The Secret In Their Eyes (which won the Oscar for Best Foreign Film) seemed like a decent enough idea. I am happy to recommend the original film, as it is strong piece of filmmaking in al regards. This Americanized-version, […]

Dysfunctional Family Fun, Minus The Fun In ‘August: Osage County’ (Movie Review)

This matters very little in terms of my thoughts on the film, but I do not much care for the way this film is being marketed.  August: Osage County is a lot of things.  It is a well-acted drama, with some comedic moments.  It is based on an award-winning play by Tracy Letts.  It involves […]

Mirror Mirror (Blu-ray Review)

Ah, the year of two Snow White  films, the other being Snow White and The Huntsman, this one being an actual light hearted attempt at the material. Not only does it feature Julia Roberts as the evil queen, but it’s directed by none other than the master visualist, Tarsem of The Cell, The Fall, and […]

Confessions Of A Dangerous Mind (Blu-ray Review)

I remember first hearing about this film and the story that surrounds it.  The idea of having the host of The Gong Show turn out to actually have once been a contract killer for the government was such a radical idea and the fact that it could be true made it all the more intriguing.  […]

‘Larry Crowne’ Is Nice Enough To Just Not Care

I guess Tom Hanks could at least receive a “Thanks For Trying” award.  Back in 1996, Hanks made his directorial debut with That Thing You Do, a film that oozes likable charm.  Now, he has made Larry Crowne, a film that oozes something else.  I am not sure what it is that drove Hanks to […]

Mystic Pizza (Blu-ray Review)

With the release of the 1988 romantic comedy, Mystic Pizza, onto Blu-ray it must have been obvious that I was of course the one member of Why So Blu who was meant to cover it.  Ok, so maybe that’s not quite the case, but I did receive it and I did watch it, so an […]

Valentine’s Day (Blu-ray Review)

What can be more indicative of a romantic comedy than the title of Valentine’s Day?  Sure it’s sappy, and sure it’s formulaic as hell, but I just can’t shake the minority feeling that when I say compared to the handful of lackluster films I have seen theatrically these first five months of 2010, Valentine’s Day […]

Happy Valentine’s Day!

What’s more indicative of a romantic comedy than the title Valentine’s Day?  Sure it’s sappy, and sure it’s formulaic as hell, but I just can’t shake the minority feeling that when I say compared to the handful of lackluster films I have seen theatrically these first two months of 2010, Valentine’s Day was one of […]
