STIGMATA Starring Academy Award Winner Patricia Arquette Debuts On Blu-ray May 19th!

More 90s horror from Scream Factory.  Here’s another more recent cult classic, the Patricia Arquette-starring Stigmata.  I remember this one being pretty popular amongst us “alternative” kids back in the day for some reason.  While I never owned it, I do remember renting it a few times VHS.  It’ll be interesting to revisit the film […]

Boardwalk Empire: The Complete Fifth Season (Blu-ray Review)

Boardwalk Empire is the series that I always felt both audiences and HBO wanted more from.  Make no mistake, this Prohibition era-set crime drama, starring Steve Buscemi, was certainly a handsome production, with many fine performances, and a narrative that made some big turns throughout its 56-episode run, but I never felt like this would […]

With the Oscars still on my mind, it was nice to see so much love for Richard Linklater’s Boyhood in the form of 6 nominations, which we at Why So Blu were also big fans of (Check out our reviews HERE and HERE).  Now, Family of the Year’s hit song “Hero” has been cut to footage […]

‘Boyhood’ Grows Up on Blu-ray This December

Boyhood is a film that I was very interested in seeing this year, but try as I might I did not get around to it.  It’s hailed as “a moving 12-year epic that isn’t quite like anything else in the history of cinema” (Andrew O’Hehir, Salon), “a breathtaking achievement” (Ann Hornaday, The Washington Post) and “a profound […]

Bad Dreams: Eric Ranks the ‘Nightmare on Elm Street’ Saga

It’s Halloween season and that means I watch a bunch of horror movies.  I mean, I watch horror movies a lot any time of year, but this month is especially big.  It’s like Christmas for a scary movie fan!  My favorite long running horror movie franchise is A Nightmare on Elm Street.  While Black Christmas […]

Take A 12-Year Journey Through ‘Boyhood’ (Movie Review)

There seems to be a scale of how well movies can depict the passage of time with the characters we are following.  We constantly see films that effectively (or ineffectively) make us of makeup and other effects to convey a certain age of a character, let alone simply using different actors, based on time jumps.

‘BOYHOOD’ Press Conference Highlights And More!

A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to not only see the new Richard Linklater film, Boyhood, but attend a press conference for it, featuring writer/director Linklater, along with stars Patricia Arquette, Ethan Hawke, Ellar Coltrane, and Lorelei Linklater.  Boyhood was shot intermittently over the course of 12 years, as the story follows a […]
