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 […]

Jumanji: The Next Level Means Game Over For The Princess Bride (Movie Review)

The follow-up to Sony’s 2017 surprise smash hit, Jumanji: The Next Level is a clever expansion pack for the Jumanji universe. The formula still works, but it’s the chemistry of the cast and fantastic pacing that makes this series a new holiday favorite. Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart, Karen Gillian, and Jack Black are all game […]

Hustlers (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Hustlers was one of those films that try as I might I could not make time and the Earth’s axis around the stars align to see it in the theaters.  However, that’s the beauty of the 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray format.  If you miss a feature during its initial theatrical run, you still have an opportunity […]

Hobbs & Shaw (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

We’ve been covering the Fast & Furious films on the site ever since part six with my reviews of the eighth HERE, seventh HERE and finally that sixth one of Aaron’s HERE.  Lucky for me the franchise shows no signs of slowing down with a ninth one on its way next year, but I digress. […]

Skyscraper (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Skyscraper, which we are gathered here to discuss today, is NOT the rousing Demi Lovato song.  Instead, Skyscraper is the newest Dwayne Johnson action vehicle, which is now on home media.  I mean how much lull can we have without a new Rock movie packing retail shelves?  That was of course a very rhetorical question.

‘Skyscraper’ Is A Gravity Defying Blast! (Movie Review)

Skyscraper, which we are gathered here to discuss today, is NOT the rousing Demi Lovato song.  Instead, Skyscraper is the newest Dwayne Johnson action vehicle.  I mean how much lull can we have theatrically speaking without a new Rock movie packing seats in the theaters?  That was of course a very rhetorical question.  The answer […]

Rampage (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Do any of you suffer from the same infliction I do in life?  The infliction I’m talking about is if you don’t see a film within a couple weeks of its theatrical release, are you less prone to spend money to see it in the theater and just wait for its eventual home media release?  […]

Ballers: The Complete Third Season (Blu-ray Review)

Once again I guess you can say Spencer Strasmore and his boys are back to “ball out” in Season 3 of the hit HBO comedy Ballers releasing on Blu-ray and DVD April 3rd.  I couldn’t be more excited about this season in particular!  It hits home and gets personal for me here.  Not only am I a […]

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Truth be told I really have no right reviewing this.  Yes, I’m tackling this one by default because I have two 4K Ultra HD setups at home, but I have never seen the original Jumanji starring Robin Williams.  Is that bad?  I’m told no because I surveyed a lot of my peers and none of […]

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle (Blu-ray Review)

The bar wasn’t very high for me when it came to my expectations for Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle. 1995’s Jumanji is not a good movie, let alone some untouchable classic. The idea of taking Jumanji and putting a new spin on it may have seemed problematic for some and for a good reason, but […]

‘Jumanji’ Delivers A Welcome Return To The Jungle (Movie Review)

Honestly, the bar wasn’t very high for me when it came to my expectations for Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle. I already feel like my title is misleading, as 1995’s Jumanji is not a good movie, let alone some untouchable classic. As much a fan as I was of Robin Williams, there’s a handful of […]

Baywatch: Extended Cut (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

If you’re of my generation, who didn’t watch television’s Baywatch growing up?  I mean of course we all watched for Knight Rider‘s David Hasselhoff and beach babes like Pamela Anderson, Nicole Eggert, Yasmine Bleech and Carmen Electra were just icing on the cake.  Sure (wink, wink).  Baywatch is not only part of our pop culture, but like […]

The Fate of the Furious (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

When I first sat down to work on this movie review prior to seeing the actual movie itself this spring I thought to myself what a wonderful world.  LOL.  I am kidding.  I pondered about what they can do in this outing that hasn’t been done in the previous seven ones.  I must admit I was a […]

Snitch (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

I remember seeing trailers for Snitch like crazy during The Walking Dead on Sunday nights like crazy. Why? It had series star Jon Bernthal in the movie (Who was very popular when he was on the show). So, I guess they were hoping that would get people out to see it? But, lets not fool […]
