Divergent And The Prisoner Of Dauntless (Movie Review)

Divergent is the first sci-fi/action/coming-of-age film adapted from a young adult novel to be released this year.  For those keeping track, we still have The Giver, The Maze Runner, and The Hunger Games: Mocking Jay – Part 1 to look forward to in 2014.  I say this because these types of films have formed their […]

Thor: The Dark World (Blu-ray Review)

The second film in Marvel’s “Phase 2”, Thor: The Dark World, is coming your way on Blu-ray.  I was a bigger fan than most on the original Thor, and I really think that film was a good set up with the characters and introduction to the Thor-verse to take it to another level with this […]

Thor Ventures Into A Brave, New Fantastical Dark World (Movie Review)

Before I begin I have to be honest with you all.  I forgot how awesome the first Thor movie really was until I revisited it this past weekend, finally being able to unwind and watch a Blu-ray in my new house.  Anyway, the first Thor is a big ball of fun, in my opinion, and […]

G.I. Joe: Retaliation (Blu-ray Review)

“They” say that Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is coined the savior of franchises as of late with his propelling inclusion in the almighty, righteous Fast Five and now the sequel to 2009’s G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, aptly titled G.I. Joe: Retaliation.  Now I may be in the minority here, but I don’t feel […]

The Trailer Debut Of Thor: The Dark World

The mighty Thor returns to the big screen this November, but right now we have the first trailer.  We at Why So Blu disagree about the merit of a lot of movies, but Thor seemed to be the film that we could all agree was good (some argue great).  Now Thor 2: Still Thor is […]

‘The Three Musketeers’ Is Junk Food, Like The Candy Bar

It seems like there was one type of phrase that came to mind during the making of this movie:  “This is not your father’s Three Musketeers”.  In the era of blockbuster filmmaking that audiences now live in and in the wake of somewhat self-aware period action films like Pirates of the Caribbean and Sherlock Holmes, […]

Thor (Blu-ray Review)

It has been an extremely busy year for comic book based films, and we’re still not done yet; Captain America, I’m looking at you!  Before we get to the Cap’n, we’ve got to get to the God of Thunder himself; Thor!  I need to preface this review by stating that I received the full 3-D […]

Kill The Irishman on Blu-ray!

As many times as I was asked to see this film I reluctantly missed out on it in the theaters.  But now that I know I only have a short wait for the Blu-ray presentation I’m pretty sure I can hold out.  And I suppose, since I do live in Cleveland, I should really be […]

‘Kill the Irishman’ Relives Life of Mobster Danny Greene

Mobster movies and shows like Goodfellas and The Sopranos always bring out that underworld fascination with American audiences. The lifestyles are so provocative, violent and immoral, yet many, myself included, flock to this material like moths to a flame. The latest in the line of American mafia flicks is Kill the Irishman and contains an impressive […]

The Other Guys (Blu-ray Review)

Stop!  Freeze right there!  I want to play a game.  No, not like Jigsaw does in the Saw movies, but I want to play good cop, bad cop.  What?  You want to be the bad cop too?  How will that ever work out?  Well if you are talking about the Will Ferrell/Mark Wahlberg action-comedy film […]

I Want To Be Just Like ‘The Other Guys’

The Book of Eli Not Worth a Theater Read

There’s a good movie in there somewhere.  It just never surfaced.  Denzel Washington, Gary Oldman and Mila Kunis are all impressive in front of the camera, but even their acting abilities could not save The Book of Eli.  The film played out in such a lethargic fashion that part of me would rather be a […]

What is The Book of Eli?

The first time I was exposed to The Book of Eli was at San Diego Comic-Con in 2009.  I sat there rather unimpressed by the footage Warner Brothers screened.  What I was most interested in was how hot Mila Kunis was going to look like in person, whether Gary Oldman would comment on the status of […]
