‘Stillwater’ Flows As A Procedural, Human Drama (Movie Review)

Before I begin with introducing Stillwater I have something to admit.  I have not written a review of anything since last November.  If memory serves me correct, the third season of Westworld was my last.  I had a lot of big changes, losses and even happy gains happen in my life since then.  I needed time […]

Elysium (4K Blu-ray Review)

Neill Blomkamp really struck a chord with District 9. It was an interesting, funny and thought provoking take on current world and equality issues.  Sometimes, with tongue firmly planted in cheek, the film evoked some savage reality even in a Sci-fi realm.  Elysium followed in 2013.  Not carrying over the humor, the District 9formula is […]

Futuristic thriller Elysium hits 4K UHD Blu-ray 2/9/2021!

In the year 2154, two classes of people exist: the very wealthy, who live on a pristine man-made space station called Elysium, and the rest, who live on an overpopulated, ruined Earth. Secretary Delacourt (Jodie Foster) will stop at nothing to preserve the luxurious lifestyle of the citizens of Elysium—but that doesn’t stop the people […]

Jay and Silent Bob Reboot (Blu-ray Review)

I consider myself a fan of Kevin Smith. He made a couple of films in the 90s that I consider some of my favorites and has since spent time delivering his unique voice in a variety of ways, including more features, podcasts, and in public forums. With Jay and Silent Bob Reboot, the prospect of […]

Ford v Ferrari (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

There was a time when the old Brian would have found such a movie like Ford v Ferrari to be an absolute wet dream.  Up until about two years ago my world literally revolved around my 2006 Mustang GT.  She, affectionately named Dark Angel after Jessica Alba’s failed TV show back in the day, was […]

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 […]

The Fantabulous Emancipation Of…Brian’s Top 10 Films of 2019

I sound like a broken record, but every single year this Top 10 movie list keeps getting harder to write.  This year was no exception again.  In fact it was probably my hardest year in the ten plus I have been doing this for.  I actually didn’t plan on writing or producing this year’s list, […]

Take The Test Drive w/ Ford v Ferrari (Movie Review)

There was a time when the old Brian would have found such a movie like Ford v Ferrari to be a wet dream.  Up until about two years ago my world literally revolved around my 2006 Mustang GT.  She, affectionately named Dark Angel after Jessica Alba’s failed TV show back in the day, was everything […]

Unsane (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Steven Soderbergh’s Unsane made its buzz by being a horror movie shot using only an iPhone. No, its not the first film to utilize the day-to-day device to make a film and Soderbergh’s not the first prestigious director to test his hand at it (I believe Chan Wook Park was first). However, Unsane is probably […]

Saving Private Ryan – Commemorative 20th Anniversary Edition (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Not only has telling stories of World War II brought director Steven Spielberg Academy Award attention in the form of Best Director nominations and his two Oscar wins, the historical subject has brought forth some of his best and most passionate work. His second Oscar win for director is actually his sixth exploration of the […]

Downsizing (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Downsizing is acclaimed director Alexander Payne’s first in four years. That last one was the absolutely terrific Nebraska. This time he pairs with Matt Damon for a quirky concept of people shrinking themselves to live in a community where they are much wealthier than they would have been at normal size.  The trailer for the […]

Thor: Ragnarok (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

While some have this illusion of some sort of fatigue (Black Panther is laughing HARD about that right now), 2017 was a pretty terrific year for the comic book super hero movies across the board.  Marvel’s three offerings all ramped up the fun factor and were as successful with their comedic chops as they were […]

DOWNSIZING On 4K Ultra-HD Blu-ray March 20th!

Hailed as “a tremendously entertaining heart-felt comedy” (Julian Roman, Movieweb), director Alexander Payne’s (The Descendants, Nebraska) hilarious DOWNSIZING arrives on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, DVD and Digital March 20, 2018 from Paramount Home Media Distribution.

‘Suburbicon’ Is A Fascinating Disaster (Movie Review)

This year has provided ample opportunity for filmmakers to put together features tackling various social issues entertainingly or intriguingly, while also opening up further discussion. Suburbicon is not one of them. This George Clooney-directed misfire wastes ample opportunity to do more with its overt symbolism by embedding a predictable and mostly unfunny crime caper in […]

Monster Brawl At ‘The Great Wall’ (Movie Review)

I remember reading about The Great Wall over a year ago when I put together my list of most anticipated films for 2016. The concept of dropping Matt Damon and Andy Lau, among others, into a Zhang Yimou (Hero) film about soldiers fighting off monsters at the Great Wall of China sounded pretty amazing. The […]

Jason Bourne (4K UHD Blu-ray Review)

Jason Bourne needs no trailer to sell it.  Let’s be honest of that fact.  When Bourne Identity dropped in 2002 it rejuvenated the stale international spy franchises out there.  Just look at the style of what came next in the Bond series, Casino Royale, as living proof.  Suddenly Bourne-like movies infected our screens everywhere from the mainstream Mission Impossible franchise to even […]
