TOP 10: Brian White’s Favorite Heavy Hitting Films of 2014

It’s that time of the year again.  My how time flies by, huh?  I generally hate this time of the year not because of the holidays, but because it means nothing but cold and deadness outside and in a reviewer’s world, the dreaded TOP 10 lists as well.  Ugh!  I’m not going to lie.  I […]

Top 20: Aaron’s Odds & Ends of 2014

I enjoy putting together different year end lists, as they tend to function as a way for me to put emphasis on a lot of film that I would hope people check out at some point (or avoid, in the case of the ‘Worst of’ list).  This year, given how I have ranked a large […]

TOP 10: Brian White’s Most Obsessed Over Blu-rays of 2014

Unlike recent years, I really didn’t acquire as many Blu-ray titles in 2014 as I typically do in a 12-month calendar.  Sure there are Blu-ray titles that I reviewed and held onto, but the others made their way into my collection when they were either priced exceptionally well (mostly horror sets I never grabbed before) or “Day 1” titles that […]

No Strings Hold Down This Trailer For Marvel’s Avengers: Age Of Ultron

Well, the plan to release this teaser during ABC’s Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. did not pan out the way it was intended, but regardless, here it is, the first full length teaser trailer for the upcoming Marvel epic, Avengers: Age of Ultron.  Those who attended Comic Con will recognize some similarities to the footage presented […]

‘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 […]

Under The Skin (Blu-ray Review)

So going into this Blu-ray review of Under The Skin I knew the following four pieces of intelligence: Scarlett Johansson is an alien, she gets naked in this, the film’s a little out there with its wild imagery and my peers here at Why So Blu absolutely love it.  Armed with that knowledge how bad can this really […]

‘Chef’ Is Deliciously Entertaining (Movie Review)

It does not take a whole lot for a film to win me over if it has a lot of charm. Get the right cast and allow them to have fun that is evident in the film and I will be happy to sit back and enjoy what has been put in front of me. […]

Can this day get any better?!  Not only am I off from my day job today (first time since last November), one of my best friends is coming into town, Aaron Neuwirth’s birthday bonanza is today, I finally got antibiotics after suffering for six weeks (I found out I’m seriously allergic to Austin and the […]

Her (Blu-ray Review)

Truth be told, had I been living among the stars and privileged in life last year in Los Angeles, Her would have been my #2 film of 2013 easily knocking down The Wolf of Wall Street here.  Oh no!  The cat’s out of the bag over how much I love this film!  Now don’t fret! […]

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 […]

Winter Is Coming For ‘Captain America’ (Movie Review)

Captain America really has his work cut out for him.  Along with being a man who now lives in modern times after being frozen for several decades, he is also an agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. performing intense field work, a devotee to untangling a web of international conspiracies if it means keeping his country safe, and […]
