Encapsulated Movie Reviews – Five New Indie Titles

So many indies, so little time!  I’m opting out of the crowded Sausage Party this week to attend a smaller, more intimate gathering featuring some new film friends.  My fellow WhySoBlu cohort Aaron Neuwirth already covered all things Anthropoid (via my favorite Cashback director Sean Ellis!), so I’m adding a little determined dad, paranormal ghost hunting […]

The Lookalike (Blu-ray Review)

Looking at this film and all the actors and producers involved, it seems quite clear that The Lookalike was a script that a lot of people had faith in.  There is, indeed, a fun, pulpy story being told here, with enough characters, dark humor, twists, and turns to make for what could have been a […]

Tusk (Blu-ray Review)

Tusk is one of those rare gems where if you never heard of it before and accidentally stumble upon the film’s trailer you secretly say to yourself I just got to see it, if for nothing else, the shock value.  However, I know what you’re all thinking.  Is it worth 90-minutes of your life?  To […]

THE LOOKALIKE: A New Neo-Noir Hitting Blu-ray This February

A little movie with a fun cast and it is described as a neo-noir thriller?  That all sounds good to me.  The Lookalike presents a murder mystery and lots of characters to follow and I am intrigued by what the results may be.  Husband and wife filmmakers Richard Gray (director) and Michele Davis-Gray (writer) assemble an […]

Tusk Sinks Its Teeth Into Blu-ray This December

Tusk is a film that got away from me when it was out theatrically so despite some of the negative reviews out there I really want to see it because admittedly so I liked what I saw in the trailer, but I have fallen for that trick before.  LOL.  So hear goes my sales pitch […]

A High Podcaster Has Given Us A Weird Dream Project In The Form Of ‘Tusk’ (Movie Review)

I have large doubts that 20 years ago, following the debut of writer/director Kevin Smith’s Clerks, anyone predicted that one day this man would make a film about a mysterious man turning an unknowing participant into a walrus, but here we are.  Based on an idea that stemmed from an episode of one of Smith’s […]

“When his best friend and podcast co-host goes missing in the backwoods of Canada, a young guy joins forces with his friend’s girlfriend to search for him.”  Now this sound alike a film my fellow reviewers will absolutely love, not to mention it’s written and directed by Kevin Smith and stars Haley Joel Osment, Genesis Rodriguez, Justin Long […]

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 […]

Open The Door, Get On The Floor, Everybody’s WALKING WITH DINOSAURS On Blu-ray March 25!

Walking With Dinosaurs was a release this Christmas that failed to catch on with audiences in the US.  Some might not have even heard of it.  This was a big project that opened with a whimper a midst all the Oscar buzzed film and popcorn flicks.  It did manage to recoup the budget overseas without […]

‘For A Good Time’, Don’t Call…

It’s a buddy comedy, a chick flick, and a story of phone sex operators; all rolled into one!  Obviously there have to be plenty of people that found this movie funny.  For a Good Time, Call… was picked up out of Sundance and quickly turned around for a release this year.  I guess the idea […]

‘Going The Distance’ is NOT a ‘Rocky’-like Film :-(

When I was looking through the list of potential press screenings I could attend a few weeks ago I came across a title that instantly grabbed my attention, Going The Distance.  Now, when I think of the title Going The Distance my mind immediately drifts to against all odds films like Rocky and such.  I […]

Serious Moonlight (Blu-ray Review)

I’ve grown up watching Meg Ryan and it’s hard to believe she will be 50 this November.  So far, she has had a great acting career, but I don’t believe we’ve seen all the sides of Meg Ryan until now.  Serious Moonlight is simply Meg Ryan’s best performance.  In memory of his wife, Adrienne Shelly, […]
