Lord Of War (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Lionsgate is bringing an underseen gem in the Nicholas Cage/Ethan Hawke/Jared Leto arms drama/thriller to 4K Ultra-HD Blu-ray. While their updates of catalog titles seems random sometime at others headscratching, Lord of War feels like a its somewhere in the middle of that. The film landed in the mid of maybe Nic Cage’s last great […]

8MM (Blu-ray Review)

Back in 1999, I was pretty psyched for 8MM as it was the follow up film from the writer of Seven. Its well known the film Andrew Kevin Walker and David Finher delivered back in 1995 and there weren’t many like it. 8MM promised to deliver some kind of spiritual sequel to it. When it […]

Love, Brandon: Top 10 Films Of 2018

I’m not last, but posting the day after Aaron Neuwirth is a tough act to follow. He’s the most informed of us here and is able to see an impressive amount of films released in a given year. For me personally, 2018 felt like I didn’t see as much as I would have liked to […]

Encapsulated Movie Reviews – Seven New Indie Titles

Matchstick Men (Blu-ray Review)

I want to thank The Martian for likely being part of the reason we are finally getting Ridley Scott’s Matchstick Men on Blu-ray.  A timely big name director’s newest movie probably got Warner Bros to dig a little in their catalog for something from him that wasn’t out yet.  The film original came out in […]

Vampire’s Kiss / High Spirits – Double Feature (Blu-ray Review)

Before the new year hit, Scream Factory said that 2015 was going to see an increase in the Double Feature titles compared to years prior.  As a fan of their Double Feature titles (And a lot of Shout! Factory’s 4-Movie Marathon series), I got pretty excited.  And they really weren’t stretching the truth, as they’ve […]

Brandon’s Blu-ray Wishlist: 1st Week Of February 2014

Back in November I put together an article I had been eager to write for many months since joining Why So Blu.  I patiently waited as I didn’t want to “just do it” for the sake of doing it.  I wanted it to be at a key time and be relevant.  That article was my […]

The Croods (Blu-ray Review)

So the time has now come where I can say that I have seen The Croods.  Sure, this is not the most epic pronouncement, but the film was a big hit, potentially establishing a new animated franchise for DreamWorks Animation and it had enough regard to make me curious.  It helps that the film is […]

DUN DUN DAHHH! Dreamworks’ The Croods Arrives on Blu-ray This October

Here’s an animated film that I never got around to seeing, but heard enough good things to make me kind of regret not doing so.  Maybe it has to do with curiosity surrounding Nic Cage playing a caveman in an animated film (though not being animated would make me more curious) or maybe it has […]

Season of the Witch or Yankees with Swords?

It was in in the first half of 2010 when I came across the trailer for Nicholas Cage in Season of the Witch.  As the months left the calendar, my interest for this film remained in some deep, dark corner of my brain, though its title escaped me.  It wasn’t until a month ago when […]

Aaron’s Top 10 Best and Worst Films of 2010

It’s the end of 2010, and with that I have a list of my favorite movies. The following list contains all of the films that I felt defined what I seek out in most films; namely that they have elements of entertainment, intrigue, or master craftsmanship when it comes to the filmmaking. Some may only have a few of these aspects covered, others may have all three bases dominated. Given my lengthy honorable mention section, there were certainly a good number of films that I had to choose from, but this list, I feel, represents the best of what 2010 had to offer theatrically:

Kick-Ass Lives Up To Its Name

…for the most part, but we’ll get to that in a moment.  Spawned originally from writer Mark Millar and Marvel artist John Romita Jr., Kick-Ass made its presence known to the mainstream as a comic book in February of 2008.  Going under the label of Icon Comics, Kick-Ass secured a cult-following to a loyal fanbase, […]

Comic-Con 2009 Update #16 – Kick Ass

The 6,000 seat capacity Hall H at the San Diego Convention Center was the location for the Kick-Ass discussion panel.  Yes I’m being serious and if the ‘me’ from two weeks ago is like most people out there, then we are on the same page in not having a clue what the rather blunt title […]
