X-Men: Apocalypse (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

X-Men (along with Blade) is credited with giving launch to the 2nd wave of comic book superhero movies.  Its also, cleverly, still going along within its own continuity.  Two years ago, Bryan Singer returned to the franchise he gave life with the fun and exciting Days Of Future Past.  That film melded together the original […]

X-Men: First Class (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

I have to admit, even with the ridiculous latest entry in the family, X-Men: Apocalypse, I’m ecstatic to be tackling X-Men: First Class here.  Ask me why.  I dare you!  Well, since you asked, I suppose the only nice thing to do would be to divulge.  I’m “ultra” excited for this one simply because ever since they […]

Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising (Blu-ray Review)

Great comedy sequels or even good comedy sequels are rare to come by. So many risks are taken when it comes to both recapturing a certain magic and taking a premise to a new level. 2014’s Neighbors is not exactly a film that lends itself to a sequel, but it was a hit and the […]

Neighbors 2 Plays It Safe and Succeeds (Movie Review)

I have a weird kind of attachment to the first Neighbors outing.  It’s not because I liked it a lot, but it’s because it’s the last time my parents came down to visit me in Austin, TX.  You see, besides some friends, my parents are the only ones who have ever came down to visit […]

This Is Where I Leave You (Blu-ray Review)

“When their father passes away, four grown siblings bruised and banged up by their respective adult live are forced to return to their childhood home and live under the same roof.” Looking at it from that angle one would say that it makes for some awkwardness but when you see who the cast of characters […]

Formulaic Family Hijinks Found In ‘This Is Where I Leave You’ (Movie Review)

This is Where I Leave You is the kind of film that walks the line between being aware it is not treading new ground, but still wants to make you happy, based on all the talented actors involved, and treating its subject matter in a more serious manner.  It is a film featuring characters that are […]

Hidy Ho! ‘Neighbors’ (Movie Review)

In lesser hands, Neighbors could have been an easily forgettable mess of a film, with talented comedic performers simply going through the motions of a ‘versus’-type comedy.  The thing that separates a film like this from whatever junk a company like Happy Madison Productions tends to put out in theaters these days is the attempt […]

‘Insidious: Chapter 2’ Ditches Darth Maul & Fights The Past (Movie Review)

I can’t help it, but I’m a firm believer that once you strike gold…DON’T be greedy.  I hold that same belief when it comes to 2011’s Insidious (as you can see from my love and praise of it over here).  The movie was a fresh of breath air for the horror genre and despite it’s […]

‘Insidious’: Back 2 The Further (Movie Review)

It stands to reason that Insidious Chapter 2 exists.  The first film became a sleeper hit, as director James Wan and writer Leigh Whannel (the creators of Saw) combined forces with the producers of Paranormal Activity, Oren Peli and Jason Blum, to make a sufficiently scary horror film.  Insidious was a spooky film that twisted […]

Comic-Con 2013: INSIDIOUS: CHAPTER 2 – SDCC Fan Experience!!

Insidious certainly caused a stir for us at Why So Blu?, as I know that Brian, Gerard. and myself, at the very least, were big fans of the 2010 horror film that ended up being a huge success.  Director James Wan is certainly a busy guy these days, with his latest film The Conjuring arriving […]

‘The Internship’ Should Or Could Lead To A Full-Time Comedy (Movie Review)

One would have thought that following the box office success of Wedding Crashers, Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson would have teamed up again sooner in an effort to ride on top of that momentum.  Especially given that instead of doing a redundant sequel to a film, they have instead come up with a new premise […]
