X-Men: Dark Phoenix (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Dark Phoenix, the end of Fox’s long running X-Men franchise, can’t come and go quick enough in my opinion.  The longevity of Fox’s X-Men pictures produced some outstanding entries like Logan, The Wolverine, Day’s of Future Past, First Class and the very first two releases.  However, it also produced some serious stinkers like the third […]

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

If the year 2011 taught us nothing but the fact that good things can come from rebooting a beloved franchise, then I’d be alright to call it a day right here and now.  Never in my wildest dreams could I have ever conjured up such a crazy notion that the quirky Planet of the Apes franchise could ever be […]

X-Men: Apocalypse (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

X-Men (along with Blade) is credited with giving launch to the 2nd wave of comic book superhero movies.  Its also, cleverly, still going along within its own continuity.  Two years ago, Bryan Singer returned to the franchise he gave life with the fun and exciting Days Of Future Past.  That film melded together the original […]

‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ Is A Bland Look At The End Of The World (Movie Review)

Imagine a rich comic universe with plenty of potential to be found in simply taking a piece of it, rather than cramming so much into one feature film. That has been the struggle of X-Men films over the years and while some have managed to balance this assemblage of characters better than others, there is […]

Slow West (Blu-ray Review)

A western starring Michael Fassbender is good enough to get me excited. Slow West was in limited release this past spring. While it was not a huge hit, it did make a big splash with critics and served as something of a nice distraction in between the bigger budgeted westerns that arrive in theaters every […]

Head Out To The ‘Slow West’ This July

I actually was able to see this film at a film festival quite recently and was very fond of what I saw. Slow West is a quirky western certainly worth the time of those who enjoy Michael Fassbender or a bit of weirdness in a genre like this. The film is all about two unlikely allies traveling […]

Scratch and Claw Your Way to Gregg’s Top 3 Horror Films

Ah it’s good to be back.  After nearly a year hiatus from Why So Blu, Brian White recently approached me to contribute an article, along with the other WSB staffers, on our top 3 favorite horror films of all time.  My split-second initial reaction was one of apprehension.  Horror has never been a genre at […]

‘The Congress’ Features The Wright Ambition (Movie Review)

I saw writer/director’s Ari Folman’s 2008 film Waltz with Bashir and was very intrigued by where he would go next.  That film revolved around a character searching for his lost memories as an Israeli soldier and was made using unique animation techniques.  Folman’s new film, The Congress, is similarly about finding one’s self in a […]

It’s A New ‘Dawn’ For Caesar And The Planet Of The Apes (Movie Review)

The only thing more complicated than the time traveling plotline of the original Planet of the Apes franchise is realizing that Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is the sequel to Rise of the Planet of the Apes, the reimagining of the fourth film in the previous franchise, which took place before the first […]

Last week was busy with trailers for many big releases next year (posts can be found HERE and HERE) and this week adds one more hotly anticipated summer film: Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.  As I recall, the majority of us at Why So Blu were big fans the 2011 sci-fi prequel/reboot, which […]

‘ParaNorman’ Raises the Dead And Puts Them To Sleep (Movie Review)

ParaNorman was first introduced to me by a former co-worker whose family’s business (Peak Solutions LLC) just so happened to be directly involved in the production of this 3D stop-motion animated adventure film. How you say? Well they supplied/sold the many 3D rendering color printers the studio/production team used to create thousands of models that […]
