Review by John Delia, Sr.

Cute and charming the fun loving Puppy Dog Pals: Season One has come to DVD with adventures for youngsters. The Disney Junior TV animated show features some good family values, important lessons and themes that expand the imagination. It is family oriented, but the target audience ranges from tykes to pre-teens. The stars are two Pugs that are cuddly and courageous with a feline that finds herself on her toes most of the time.

“The Last Jedi” Takes Aim for Home Video

Review combined content by John Delia, Sr and John M. Delia, Jr.

Add another sequel of Star Wars to you library as “The Last Jedi” has been released in several formats for home viewing. The new adventure takes its audience further into the future where we find ageing Luke Skywalker and the development of characters from “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” including Daisy Ridley’s Ray and Oscar Isaac’s Poe. The film not only brings you up to date on Skywalker, but introduces parts of the galaxy that will probably be used in future saga’s. Although this is a much needed link, you will not find it as powerful as “The Force Awakens.” Read more…

Review by John Delia, Sr

Targeted for a male audience, the “Lego Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures Season 2”, flies into homes with twelve episodes that are geared for fun and action. All the roles from the movie series from Star Wars four to Star Wars six are on board in Lego shapes, but still have the same sounding voices and personalities that made the episodes famous. There’s even a touch of the Rogue force for good measure. Filled with comedy, sight gags and challenges, the new characters can be considered their own addition to the Alliance. Read more…

Review By John Delia, Sr.

The “final installment” of Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales starts with a rip roaring adventure and ends with a heartfelt reunion of sorts by the original main characters. When it first began the buzz was “how can you make a movie from an attraction in a Disney park” with some critics even going so far as saying “it will never sail”. Well that was 14 years ago and the franchise still continues with this last hurrah and it’s probably the best sequel yet. Now on Blu-ray, DVD, and Ultra 4K Blu-ray with oceans of Bonus Extras.
