AFI Fest 2016: Mifune: The Last Samurai (Movie Review)

Looking at the documentary Mifune: The Last Samurai, I am reminded of Gimme Danger, the Jim Jarmusch documentary about Iggy & The Stooges, which I didn’t get around to reviewing. That film and this one, which details the life legendary actor Toshiro Mifune, have little to offer outside of an engaging, cinematic version of Wikipedia […]

Encapsulated Movie Reviews – Five New Indie Titles

Catching films is like catching rodents – you gotta move fast if you want to get them all.  And speaking of scurrying creatures, it’s fittingly one of the doc themes featured in the five films reviewed this week, alongside some campfire terror tales and even a courtroom drama.  (Scary but for different reasons of course!)

The Neon Demon (Blu-ray Review)

Nicolas Winding Refn is one of the most visionary and abstract directors we have in the current mold.  He’s a filmmaker whose films will probably age a lot better in critical circles than they are received in present day.  They polarize and split audiences.  His films feature an equal amount of boos and standing ovations […]

Brian White’s Top 10 Most Treasured Blu-rays Released In 2015

Like last year, I really didn’t acquire as many Blu-ray titles in 2015 as I typically do in a 12-month calendar.  Also like last year, there are Blu-ray titles that I reviewed personally and held onto, but the others made their way into my collection when they were either priced exceptionally well (most recently this Ultimate James Bond Collection here) or “Day […]

Bram Stoker’s Dracula – Supreme Cinema Series (Blu-ray Review)

It may be Bram Stoker’s name in the title, but this is Francis Ford Coppola’s film, from the first frame to the last. Coppola’s adaptation is an exercise in excess, creating mesmerizing cinematic fever dream. Every detail is flawless, from the production design by Dante Ferreti and Thomas Sanders to the breathtaking cinematography by Michael Ballhaus […]

John Wick (Blu-ray Review)

I could start and stop my film review section 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 […]

Top 20: Aaron’s Odds & Ends of 2014

I enjoy putting together different year end lists, as they tend to function as a way for me to put emphasis on a lot of film that I would hope people check out at some point (or avoid, in the case of the ‘Worst of’ list).  This year, given how I have ranked a large […]

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’ 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 […]

1 Lord, 1 Witch, 1 Shogun, And ‘47 Ronin’ (Movie Review)

47 Ronin is an enjoyable hybrid period action/fantasy movie that was much better than I was expecting.  Granted I am generally pretty satisfied with Keanu Reeves action movies, but a lot of the surprise came from how different this very expensive movie played out.  Along with putting the money on screen, this is a film […]

Man Of Tai Chi (Blu-ray Review)

My generation and that before have seen Keanu Reeves come up through his career as a one-trick stoner comedy pony, to really bad surfer actor, to action to star, to blockbuster superstardom to serviceable ensemble actor.  In 2013, we take another step.  Keanu Reeves: the director.   In his directorial debut The Man Of Tai Chi, […]
