Harriet (Blu-ray Review)

Harriet Tubman seems to never be noticed for the sacrifices and struggles she sustained through.  Harriet was a woman of great strength and perseverance; whose resilience saw her become one of the greatest civil rights heroes of all time.  Her story is told here through Kasi Lemmons’ ever solid direction. The story takes us on a wild and occasionally tense ride through the story of The Underground Railroad and as mere passengers, we too are just as drawn into the story. Check out more in-depth below on Harriet which arrives in stores this Tuesday!

A New Year Miracle — Adam’s Top Ten Films of 2019!

2019 was an interesting year for me. I had a great dream realized that I thought would only happen in the form of Amazon or iTunes reviews — I was invited to write about movies here at WhySoBlu. This exceptional opportunity has afforded me the privilege to share with you my passion for film as a whole, to share a small dose of me with every article I write. This has been a dream for me as long as I can remember. With my last 2019 film list and my first official post of the year, I want to thank my colleagues Aaron, Brandon, Brian, Corey, Gerard, Gregg, and Peter. Thank you for giving me so many great reviews to read and to look up to. You all have wonderful ways with words and I hope that I find myself continually influenced by your work. I’d also like to give a shout out to my husband B. for his patience and understanding with my writing. He hears a lot about my critiques now and he’s been essential in sharing his opinions as well. We’ve become like a more amiable Siskel and Ebert at home. For all the readers of WhySoBlu, I thank you just as much for your continued reading, sharing and mutual love of film and physical media. I hope you enjoy reading about my top 10 films of 2019 and find a few surprises in there!

Adam’s Top 10 4K Blu-rays of 2019

OK, so here’s the thing… I’m kind of, sort of, terrible at this sort of thing. Who can confine themselves to ten of anything? Ten artists. Ten singers. Ten favorite foods… Ten of anything seems like a lot but if you’re an over-thinker like myself, chances are ten is never enough. There’s always that one more something that becomes the “might have been” on the list! With this, my first top-ten list for this absolutely amazing website, I have been going over my choices day by day and have decided to try my very best to contain myself and even as you read this list published now, I’m thinking of whether or not I need to go back and revise… I kid you not, ten is just not enough! I am so excited that 2019 was yet another step in the right direction for film fans who love physical media and this year’s huge amount of 4K Blu-rays have been wonderfully varied and so many amazingly done releases have come out for us to cherish, critique and revisit. I’ve done my best to compile my favorites and hope I have some of you saying “Absolutely!” And others saying “I’ll have to check that one out!” Enjoy!

Angel Has Fallen 4K Blu-ray Review

Mike Banning is back. The unlucky secret service agent always happens to put himself in the wrong place at the wrong time.  Last most of us (not me) saw him, he was saving the President in London.  Now, back home, Mike has some demons and some ailments making him less heroic. The human side of Banning is what makes Angel Has Fallen one of the better 3rd installments I’ve seen recently.  Read more about the action packed three-quel below and grab your copy (at a great price) from the link below. As an Amazon Associate your purchases from that link help keep the site going, and gives me a small (minuscule, really…) kick back that can go to buying more movies, eventually. Read on!

The Kitchen Blu-ray Review

Can you stand the heat in The Kitchen? I’m pretty sure you can.  Melissa McCarthy, Tiffany Haddish and Elisabeth Moss take the screen for all (well, at least some) of what it’s got in this crime drama from Andrea Berloff (writer of Straight Outta Compton).  I was excited to see this one despite the box office demise and the negative reviews.  Something had to come out of this mostly serious drama for its two comedy superstars, right? Read my weigh in below and click the link at the end if you want to grab yourself a copy of The Kitchen. As Amazon Associates, we at Whysoblu take a small amount of your purchase price on Amazon to keep this fantastic site humming along for you fans of physical media!

The Peanut Butter Falcon Blu-ray Review

Friendship can come in times when you don’t realize you need it most. Friendships that come in tough times, are some of the most unlikely and the most necessary of all.  The Peanut Butter Falcon tells a Huck Finn-esque coming of age tale that is sure to delight fans of what I like to call “nice movies.” “Nice movies” are the types that make you laugh, challenge your feelings about fictional characters, and make you hopeful for those people you’ve followed for the length of the film. To be short, The Peanut Butter Falcon is pure delight. Read more in-depth below and click the link at the end of the post to purchase a copy too! Just a reminder, as Amazon Associates, we take a small percentage of those link sales to keep this amazing site going for you all!

Stuber (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Stuber, by definition, should not have been the failure it ended up being theatrically. The film has all the elements of a classic summer blockbuster — fights, gunfire, humor and an engaging overall story that isn’t hard to follow or boring. The pace is pitch perfect for multiple viewings at the theater too! But then, it just didn’t happen. As I sit baffled trying to ponder what might have been, take a moment to read on about the film below, which graced 4K fans with a great disc earlier this month.
