‘LUCY’ Express (Movie Review)

In the premise for Lucy, Scarlett Johansson’s character is forced to deliver a package implanted inside of her, only to gain unique abilities after the package is ruptured.  I am sure some kind of variation of that description is what got writer/director Luc Besson the means to make this film as a big studio movie, […]

‘Lucy’ Mixes With The Matrix Instead Of The Transporter (Movie Review)

I’m not sure what happened, but sometime circa the Black Widow’s entrance into the Marvel Cinematic Universe in Iron Man 2 and later on in movies such as Don Jon and most recently Under the Skin (my full Blu-ray reviews of those two titles can be found here and here) I have become a HUGE fan of […]

Transcendence (Blu-ray Review)

Going into 2014, Transcendence was on my “movies to check out” list.  I didn’t really know all too much about it.  Mainly, it was the prospect of seeing longtime Christopher Nolan collaborator Wally Pfister make his directorial debut.  It was the notion of seeing someone from the Nolan tree branch out was attractive enough to […]

The LEGO Movie: Everything Is Awesome Edition (Blu-ray Review)

Let’s get one thing straight from the start.  When I went into the press screening earlier this year I was completely against this movie.  While it looked unique and looked like it could be fun, I just did not want to invest the time in it and regret it later because you know life’s too short, yada, […]

Own Transcendence On Blu-ray Combo Pack July 22nd!

Here’s a movie I was really looking forward to in 2014 and then I wound up not even seeing it in theaters.  I figured being something coming from a person off of the Nolan tree it had a chance.  I still can’t pass a judgement the film as I’ve not seen it myself, but I […]

WonderCon 2014: Lucy

With the panel for the upcoming EuropaCorp-produced, Universal Studios-distributed film Lucy, starring Scarlett Johansson, I believe I found myself more intrigued by the fact that writer/director Luc Besson (La Femme Nikita, Leon, The Fifth Element) would be at WonderCon, rather than being psyched about the film itself.  That said, the trailer premiered a few weeks […]

‘Transcendence’ Exceeds No Limits (Movie Review)

For a techno-thriller about artificial intelligence, it actually seems to make sense that Transcendence does not have a whole lot of emotion to back up its big ideas, aside from  Paul Bettany’s cry face, which makes its appearance now and again.  This is a film that could have worked as a cheesy B-movie with the […]

Everything Is Awesome With The Lego Movie Blu-ray Announcement!

The Pawnbroker (Blu-ray Review)

Legendary director Sidney Lumet’s The Pawnbroker is a landmark in American filmmaking.  This was the first Holocaust/World War II film to tell it from the perspective of a Holocaust survivor.  And its an unrelenting and ruthless film for the times in terms of the suggestive events in the flashbacks.  Its also the first mainstream film […]

Scarlett Johansson Continues To Invade Early 2014 With This Trailer For LUCY

With Captain America: The Winter Soldier opening in wide release and Under the Skin opening in limited release this weekend, it seemed only fitting to continue providing coverage surrounding all things related to Scarlett Johansson; and while Why So Blu’s Brandon Peters continues his very detailed log regarding her pregnancy, I am simply posting the […]

Olive Films releases one of the landmarks of American cinema, The Pawnbroker on Blu-ray™ and DVD April 22nd.  Directed by Academy-Award®-winner (Honorary Award 2005) Sidney Lumet (12 Angry Men, Dog Day Afternoon) and released in 1964, it was the first cinematic exploration of the darkest memories and feelings of a Holocaust survivor. Filmed in stark black and white, it was also the first […]

‘The Lego Movie’ Has Been Built Into Something Awesome (Movie Review)

This is one of those “expectations exceeded” situations.  I was already plenty happy to go into The Lego Movie, given the lively and fun marketing presented for this film, along with my knowledge that it has come from the directors or both Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs and 21 Jump Street, films I very […]

Everything Is Awesome In ‘The Lego Movie’ (Movie Review)

Let’s get one thing straight from the start.  Even going into the press screening this past Saturday I was against this movie.  While it looked unique and looked like it could be fun, I just did not want to invest the time in it and regret it later because you know life’s too short, yada, […]

Last Vegas (Blu-ray Review)

On the surface, after seeing multiple television spots initially, Last Vegas appeared to be nothing more than a cash grab at the box office as the older generation’s version of the wildly popular first entry in the franchise, The Hangover.  Heck, it’s even about four friends and a bachelor party in Vegas!  How much more convincing can that […]

‘Last Vegas’ Gambles on Blu-ray This January!

I have to admit.  I really wanted nothing to do with Last Vegas theatrically, but after reluctantly taking the trip with it, I actually liked it.  It did not top anybody’s Top 10 lists last year, at least I don’t think it did, but that did not stop me from having a good time with […]

Brian White’s Indisputable Heavyweight ‘Top 10 Films of 2013’

The calendar year of 2013 was a tough one for me in the film department.  However, unlike my recent Top 10 Blu-ray list over here, where I struggled to even find ten Blu-rays that I really really liked in 2013 (only leaving off Cloud Atlas), I find myself faced with a smorgasbord of films that […]

Four Friends and a Funeral in ‘Last Vegas’ (Movie Review)

On the surface, after seeing multiple television spots as of late, Last Vegas appears to be nothing more than a cash grab at the box office as the older generation’s version of the wildly popular first entry in the franchise, The Hangover.  Heck, it’s even about four friends and a bachelor party in Vegas!  How […]
