I must start this year’s top ten list off by radiating my excitement about this particular list.  I have been lucky enough to write for Whysoblu for approaching 3 years now.  I have written reviews, top ten lists, and published PR too.  I have loved all the work I’ve been able to do – even […]

Last week was the favorite physical media I had to weed down to a short list, this week its the actual films of 2021 to which I must choose a mere 10. As is true in any year, its hard as hell to crack this thing down to 20-30, let alone 10. But, that’s the […]

Brian’s Sensual Top 10 List of His Favorite 2021 Films

I feel like a broken record spewing the same sob story every year, but in calendar year 2021 I saw the least amount of movies ever in recent memories.  It was definitely a weird year.  COVID-19 still had impacts on box office releases, but that didn’t stop new movies from rolling in on other digital […]

‘Dune’ Delivers An Elevated Blockbuster (Movie Review)

Dune, the much-anticipated epic, based on Frank Herbert’s seminal sci-fi novel, opens this weekend on the biggest (and smallest) screens in North America. As director Denis Villeneuve (Blade Runner 2049) has stated in interviews, anyone eager to drink in the vast desert vistas of the planet Arrakis, IMAX is the intended viewing experience. For those […]

I’ve assembled my list of Most Anticipated Films for 2020. It’s always fun to take a look at what’s going to be hitting theaters in the coming year. Sure, there are a lot of films that aren’t even on my radar yet, but I’m still plenty happy at seeing all of the current potential. Plus, […]

Blade Runner 2049 (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Blade Runner 2049 opened in the fall of 2017 to critical raves.  However, the whole way along, many were concerned with the almost three hour runtime coupled with an R rating. The film also was the sequel to one of the biggest cult favorites of all time, but a notable box office bomb as well. […]

I, Brandon’s Top 10 Films Of 2017!

No matter what the final box office tally winds up being, that doesn’t matter in terms of the quality of films that 2017 delivered.  While for a long time it seemed like it only had one true Best Picture frontrunner, that’s a whole different bag because there are a lot of awesome films we know […]

SDCC 2017: Blade Runner 2049

The Hall H 180 screens continued today with Blade Runner 2049. After a run down of what happened with Deckard and what has happened to society since 2019 (I won’t spoil it), Jared Leto came onstage and began discussing the future and what Blade Runner means to him. After he was done, he disappeared, revealing that we […]

Arrival (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Arrival is one of those films that when you first see the theatrical trailer for it just cries out to you.  It screams that you must see me.  Who knows.  Maybe it’s the aliens in the film that called out to me.  I don’t know but whatever it was I was smitten by the very first trailer […]

Top 10 Films Of 2016: A Brandon Peters Story

As always when I do these “Best” lists, I ask two things of you, the reader.  Take the words best or top and replace it with “favorite”.  And importantly, number or ranking doesn’t matter, what is included does.  2016 was an interesting year for me, in that I feel a hair underqualified, but still, this […]

Brian’s TOP 10 Favorable 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Titles of 2016

Unlike last year, this was a brave, bold, new world for me in terms of Blu-ray collecting.  I upped my game as I stepped into the 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray arena.  I took on the combatants (HDMI handshake and audio sync issues being most problematic) like a champion and came out unscathed.  You can read […]

It’s The ‘Arrival’ Of An Interesting Alien Mystery (Movie Review)

Imagine how the world reacts to multiple spacecraft entering our atmosphere without any warning. Now take away the immediate imagery that has come from years of seeing various blockbusters use this as a way to provide explosive spectacle. Arrival has little interest in adding action-based excitement to its story about how an elite team works […]

Cross The Border To Check Out ‘Sicario’ (Movie Review)

Sicario is one of those titles that when the press screening invite hit my inbox I immediately fist pumped the air and screamed “oh hell yeah.”  There was just something about the theatrical trailer (in particular that hallway of dead bodies behind the walls), never mind my love for Villeneuve’s Prisoners, that instantly sucked me in and […]

Enemy (Blu-ray Review)

Last year, mainstream audiences were given the chance to check out Prisoners, a kidnapping drama from director Denis Villeneuve.  Many gave praise to Hugh Jackman taking his Wolverine rage and putting it into an average guy who just wanted to find his daughter.  I liked Jackman, but it was Jake Gyllenhaal’s turn as Det. Loki […]
