NBFF 2017 Review: The Scent Of Rain And Lightning

There is a lot to get out of films surrounding family secrets. Ideally, you are gradually drawn into learning about who a family is, establishing various personas, only to have things turn around on you thanks to sudden reveals. It’s not a cheat to make these sort of twists, as you’ve been effectively coerced into […]

Independence Day: Resurgence (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Independence Day: Resurgence is one of those sequels that never needed nor should have been made.  So why was it? That’s a very good question.  Considering they couldn’t even lure Will Smith back for it should have been the nail in the coffin.  However, it wasn’t.  Not even Jeff Goldblum nor Liam Hemsworth can keep this ship from crashing […]

Independence Day: Resurgence (3D Blu-ray Review)

I have both nostalgic love and admiration for the 1996 blockbuster Independence Day. The film turned Will Smith into a superstar, provided Irwin Allen disaster movie-like thrills on a grand scale, and delivered a fun sci-fi alien invasion flick. It was also earnest, heartfelt and audacious. 20 years later we have Independence Day: Resurgence, which […]

It Follows (Blu-ray Review)

This past March I had the pleasure of visiting Los Angeles after not being in that beloved city for over two years.   Absence truly made my heart grow fonder, but it did not do anything for the ridiculous traffic out there.  Anyway, one of my most fondest memories from that recent trip was taking Why So Blu Staff writer […]

‘It Follows’ Expands to 1,200 Screens

Yeah!  I’m excited by this news as when I was in LA a few weeks back I was actually one of the lucky thousands who got to see It Follows on opening weekend, a film which I can only describe as The Rings meets John Carpenter’s old school Halloween.  One of the best-reviewed films of […]

The Guest (Blu-ray Review)

You know that expression that says “you had me at hello”?  Well the same train of thought can be applied here with this title, The Guest, because it is billed as “from the creators of You’re Next.”  They really did have me at hello there – hook, line and sinker.  Even though I have never […]

‘The Guest’ Was Polite And Awesome (Movie Review)

It is great to go retro, when being guided by filmmakers who know what they are doing.  Director Adam Wingard and writer Simon Barrett clearly have plenty of retro inspirations for their films.  Having found success in the realm of genre filmmaking, particularly with their previous collaboration, You’re Next, playing as a slasher film with […]
