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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

In The Blood (Blu-ray Review)

There is only so much to say about movies like In The Blood.  It is a thriller that had minimal exposure upon its initial release and will live in the realm of streaming and cheap Blu-ray bins.  That said, as far as these fairly straight-forward action vehicles for lower-profile stars and fun character actors go, […]

Crocodile Dundee/Crocodile Dundee II – Double Feature (Blu-ray Review)

It’s kind of funny, had this been 1986 and local newsletter mag called Why So VHS and Crocodile Dundee come across the table for review, us writers may have been chomping at the bit and fighting each other for the chance to review the tape.  Instead, its 2014 and the double feature release of not […]

Gina Carano “Acts” & Kicks Butt in ‘IN THE BLOOD’ on Blu-ray This June

While some of us at Why So Blu are concerned whether or not MMA fighter Gina Carano can be considered an actress (I personally felt she was fine in Haywire), she has another starring role to prove herself in with In The Blood.  Here are some official words about it:  Gina Carano stars as Ava, a […]

Turbo (Blu-ray Review)

The Indianapolis 500 hasn’t had a film with it as the subject in over 40 years.  The last time was the Paul Newman film Winning.  And even that one was the first film about the Indy 500 in 15 years.  Its one of the biggest events in the world and racing creates a whole lot […]

‘Turbo’ Allows Us To Watch A Speedy Escargot (Movie Review)

Turbo presents the idea of a snail racing in the Indy 500.  There are reasons why this happens and the fact that the film is animated and intended for children allows for an obvious amount of suspension of disbelief, but let me reiterate that this is a film that presents the idea of a Snail […]

This April Schwarzenegger is Back and Better Than Ever In ‘The Last Stand’ On Blu-ray

So this past winter has seen the release of action films from a lot of the action starts, old and new.  I did not expect The Last Stand to be the best of the bunch, but given that A Good Day to Die Hard was a huge bust and Stallone couldn’t quite land a Bullet […]

Stick Around And Watch Arnold’s ‘Last Stand’ (Movie Review)

In 1993, Hong Kong film director John Woo made his American feature film debut with Hard Target, starring Jean-Claude Van Damme.  That film is not very good as a whole, but the action is solid and one can see Woo’s signature style lurking beneath what is essentially a studio-produced action film, with a bit more […]

‘Journey 2’ Features Mysterious Island Lizards, Rocks, and Caines

It is nice to set up goals for yourself.  For example, I happened to have three goals for the New Year:  see Michael Cain ride on a giant bumblebee, watch The Rock bounce berries off his chest, and find out if a giant electric eel can power a submarine (all of that is true, yes).  […]

How To Make It In America: The Complete First Season (Blu-ray Review)

“From the creators of Entourage…” Okay, I’m in!  Yes, I’m shallow, but you love it.  I got the word that I would be reviewing How To Make It In America, and got real excited.  Granted the title is a bit peculiar due to having the Entourage cloud hanging over it.  People may start talking and […]

Arthur (Blu-ray Review)

Finally, the much delayed Why So Blu review of the Arthur Blu-ray is here!  One of the best things I can say about Arthur is that a lot of people laughed really hard when I saw it in theaters, and that does not make them wrong.  However, the percentage of those people who had seen […]

Have A Drunken Laugh Or Two With ‘Arthur’

Arthur puts itself in a difficult place when it comes to evaluating it.  One of the best things I can say about Arthur is that a lot of people laughed really hard in my theater, and that does not make them wrong.  However, the percentage of those people who had seen the original 1981 Arthur […]
