  In Blood Father, which comes out on Blu-ray, DVD, and Digital HD on October 11th, Mel Gibson (Maverick, Payback) effortlessly transcends his troubled public persona to portray a gruff semi-racist man trying to escape his past by telling the only woman is his life to shut up and follow his instructions lest she find […]

What makes for a memorable movie lone wolf – what are the defining cinematic characteristics?  Are they quiet, bitter, emotionless, focused or perhaps just plain mean?  The one thing they do all have in common is a lone wolf likes to work alone, embodies a sense of isolation and stays firmly in control by doing […]

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 […]

With my recent review of the Blu-ray for Mad Max from Scream Factory and its relatively convenient timing, I’ve had the itch to keep going writing about the series over here on Why So Blu.  No, this won’t be a review of the Blu-ray that has been out forever (Fun Fact: It was the fifth […]

The Expendables 3 (Blu-ray Review)

Way back when I wrote my theatrical review of The Expendables 3 I talked about how I initially promised myself I would have nothing to do with this movie after I learned about the abysmal PG-13 rating the filmmakers trimmed it down to be to comply with requirements of the much feared MPAA in order to get […]

The Expendables 3: Rocky Balboa vs. Sgt. Martin Riggs (Movie Review)

This is the one movie I promised myself I would have nothing to do with after I learned about the abysmal PG-13 rating the filmmakers trimmed it down to be to comply with requirements of the much feared MPAA in order to get it out to a wider audience (more about that later).  If it […]

‘The Expendables 3’: Cheap, Chopped, And Cheesy (Movie Review)

At this point in the Expendables franchise, it seems apparent that there is little understanding as to how to really deliver on what could make these films true action delights.  The story means little to me in these films, the presence of all the big name action heroes is more important than their acting, but […]

Brandon’s Blu-ray Wishlist – August 1, 2014

Mel Gibson is one of the newest action heroes of 80s/90s to hop on board the Expendable train.  He’s actually the villain of the upcoming film.  And what a dynamite choice.  Gibson was pretty much unstoppable from Lethal Weapon to Signs.  Hell, for me, I’d say from ’79 in Mad Max to then, but he […]

‘Machete Kills’: The Border Strikes Back (Movie Review)

I have a lot to say about Machete Kills, the latest Mexploitation film from director Robert Rodriguez.  A lot of it may be negative, as the film, overall, tries too hard, despite having plenty of ideas and a wonderful ensemble cast, consisting of anyone who apparently had a free weekend at some point to come […]
