Prisoners (Blu-ray Review)

You ever have those moments in life where you first see a film’s theatrical trailer, having never known anything about it beforehand, and instantly “know” that it’s a film you want to see upon its release with no hesitations or second guessing?  Well, that’s exactly how I felt about the film we are all gathered […]

Prisoners Escapes Onto Blu-ray This December

I’m sorry, but Wolverine has nothing on Hugh Jackman’s character here in Prisoners.  Whether or not you believe in his twisted form of justice or not is your problem.  I just know that this guy is an animal in this film and I’m looking forward to re-visiting this one on Blu-ray when it  arrives December […]

‘Ender’s Game’ Is A Fine Speaker For The Book (Movie Review)

Ender’s Game, the Hugo and Nebula Award-winning novel by Orson Scott Card, is one of my favorite books of all time.  The concept of a film adaptation has always been an intriguing one to me, but something I had long put off as ever actually happening.  These feelings came from a younger me, but I […]

‘Prisoners’ Sets Its Sights On Terrifying Parents (Movie Review)

Prisoners does such a great job at providing many spooky possibilities for what could have happened to two innocent, little girls that it is a shame the ending does not quite pack more of a wallop.  While certainly a dark and heavy kidnapping drama to get through, it is only able to accomplish so much […]

Ender’s Game Teaser Trailer Has Arrived

Ender’s Game has continued to seem like one of those things that would just never happen.  I am a huge fan of the award-winning novel by Orson Scott Card, but given the challenge that the story represents in creating a film that could really work, I can see why the film has remained in development […]

Beautiful Creatures Is Campy, Melodramatic, And Fun (Movie Review)

If Twilight has paved the way for movies like Warm Bodies and Beautiful Creatures to be made, then I am all for it at this point.  I am not actively seeking out paranormal teen romance movies, but the fallout from one self-serious franchise has led to a couple, more accessible and enjoyable features that I […]

‘The Help’ on Path for Oscar

Yes, yes, I know. This isn’t the typical Why So Blu movie review. We focus on pop culture flicks, usually consisting of comedies, science fiction, and kick-ass action films. The Help does not fall under any of those three categories. Yet, like last year’s The King’s Speech, this movie is too good not to talk about here.  Just […]

Donald Judges The Law Abiding Citizen

Gerald Butler and Jamie Foxx go head to head in a cat and mouse tale of domestic terrorism in Law Abiding Citizen.   The initial trailer that I saw for this movie had me rooting for Clyde Shelton (Gerald Butler’s character).  He’s the guy that manages to survive a home invasion that brutally ends the lives […]
