The Fly Collection (Blu-ray Review)

There have been sets made of The Fly films in the past. However, those were limited to just the eras. The old The Fly films stuck together and the two from the 1980s teamed up for double feature discs. But, never has the whole encompassing world of The Fly been available in one big collection…UNTIL NOW. Scream Factory has put together an impressive set for this holiday season with all five movies about transportation and screwing it up for yourself and the lives of others. This impressive collection features a load of all new bonus material interviews as well as the Blu-ray debut of the third film, The Curse of The Fly. And in true Scream Factory fashion, it comes in impressive packaging for all of us movie shelf display showoffs everywhere. Pre-order to receive when it arrives on December 10th!

Abbott & Costello: The Complete Universal Pictures Collection (Blu-ray Review)

One of Shout! Factory’s more impressive releases this holiday season is definitely the Abbott & Costello: The Complete Universal Pictures Collection. This truly is an all-timer set, collecting 28 of the legendary comedy duos’ films. Bud Abbott and Lou Costello did 36 feature films altogether, so you’re getting pretty much everything here. Yes, that does mean if you’re a Classic Monsters fan, you’re getting Abbott & Costello Meet Frankenstein for the bazillionth time (As well as the other monster films for the ga-jillionth time). Given the enormity of this box set and the fact that we do things right over here at Why So Blu, it took a little while to plow through these 28 films and accompanying bonus material spread out over 15 discs. This review began by taking a disc-by-disc approach (2 Films each disc, Disc 15 is all bonus material). This final or “general” version of the review is here to collect links to all of the reviews for the 15 discs to have them in one place for easier navigation. If you enjoyed these reviews and are interested in picking up this set, please think about using our paid Amazon link below. Any time you do, it is very much appreciated.

Big Trouble In Little China – Collector’s Edition (Blu-ray Review)

One day, maybe EVERY John Carpenter film will have a Scream or Shout! Factory release. With a quick glance at their catalog, they make no secret about that being a company goal. There are challenges lying ahead, but with their diving into Paramount material now, Escape From LA seems like it could be right around the corner. But, being more present and around the very next corner (Also a collaboration with actor Kurt Russell) is the action/adventure romp Big Trouble In Little China. Its being dubbed a collector’s edition and is loaded with so much new material that its going to take 2 whole Blu-ray discs to cover it all. It includes it seems EVERYONE but Kim Cattrall participating (I’m willing to bet they asked her to). This impressive release comes in MANY MANY different iterations, so study up hard at the variety tray of variables and make your pick accordingly. And make your movie fast, as it arrives on December 3rd. And if you’re a basic B, then just click the paid Amazon link below.

Candy Corn (Blu-ray Review)

As has always been true here at Why So Blu, when it comes to slasher films, I’m an easy slay. Candy Corn kinda/sorta came into my radar via the online horror apparel outlet Fright Rags (Go visit their site, its BADASS). They were doing the merchandising for this film, and low and behold the owner Ben Scrivens was an executive producer on this film as well. There was one night on Twitter where I saw people discussing it, but I sort of forgot about it until it was offered to me for review. The film comes via DREAD (I think its the Dread Central film branch), who has been amassing a nice library of new indy horror films. Genre vets Tony Todd, Courtney Gaines and PJ Soles fill in some roles in the cast for director Josh Hasty. The Blu-ray for the film features plenty of bonus material and is currently able to order at online outlets including Amazon (For which we include a paid link following the review of the film and disc content).

Brandon’s Blu-ray Wishlist for 2020!

Welcome back to another edition of Brandon’s Blu-ray Wishlist. The second one this year as 2019’s had to be pushed to January last time. But alas, I’m back and on time here with another set of 10 films or TV programs that have yet to be blessed/restored/made-over with the Blu-ray format (Or 4K Ultra-HD now for that matter). The usual rules apply as always. To appear on the wishlist, a title cannot have been released anywhere on the globe (If its only in another region, its STILL on the format). Also, if it has been announced in some sort of professional or reliable manner (IE: Peter Jackson has discussed that Meet the Feebles and Bad Taste ARE getting released). After the list, in the comments, list of some of theme you’re hoping finally see the light of day or you are STILL waiting to see the light of day in the comments (We are already WELL aware of The Abyss and True Lies, so lets get a bit more creative, shall we?).
