Review by John Delia

One of my favorite Disney films Pinocchio has finally been released on Digital HD in a combo pack with the Blu-ray and DVD. It also has some new bonus features that includes a new version of Oswald the Lucky Rabbit in “Poor Papa”.  The last release of the film to DVD and Blu-ray was in 2009 for its 75th Anniversary edition, so if your little ones have not had the opportunity to see the masterpiece at home, on their tablet, smartphone, or even their laptop, then the Digital HD code inside the box will make it all happen.

“Queen of Katwe” (Written Blu-ray Review & Trailer)

January 30th, 2017 No comments

Review by John M. Delia, Jr.

I’ve watched many biographies, but not quite as compelling and heartfelt as Queen of Katwe. The film takes you into the heart of the story right away then works it charm throughout. Tugging at your heartstrings at times, the fine acting makes the story work right down to the inspirational ending. Read more…

Review by John Delia

A moving romantic drama that gets taught and heartbreaking, The Light Between Oceans has been released on home video. Nicely directed by Derek Cianfrance, who’s no stranger to the genre and delivered the passionate motion picture Blue Valentine. In this film his characters are caught up in a quandary that tests their motives and truth. I am a fan of lush filmed movies that have breathtaking scenery and this one is no exception. Read more…

Review by John Delia 

Nicely made the film Pete’s Dragon has reached home video. Now in Blu-ray/DVD and combo the film has a modern twist that should mesmerize the youngest of tykes that like exciting and family oriented films. Since it does have a quite unsettling beginning my advice to parents, run it ahead a bit for 5 and under until you are okay with what you are watching. It settles into a very adventurous fantasy with Elliot the Dragon and the orphaned Pete. Read more…

Review by John Delia

Keeping the Marvel Comic franchise at the top of the charts Captain America: Civil War blasts from the big screen to home video. Available in various formats including Blu-ray 3D, the film delivers the excitement, drama and explosive action to make it an entertaining experience for teens through adults. The film has an incredible amount of extremely good CGI that it’s hard to distinguish between reality and fantasy. The production is so mind boggling, you will probably not take a break from watching the film. Read more…

The Jungle Book (Blu-ray Review & Trailer)

JUNGLE BOOK boxart

 

 

 

Review by John Delia

Director Jon Favreau turns family viewing up a notch with a darker version of the 1997 animated The Jungle Book. Now on Blu-ray/DVD the live action with a copious amounts of computer generated images, Favreau takes the classic into the 21st century with realism beyond belief. Adding a lot of action to his film the movie becomes more of a jungle battle than an innocent romp in the trees and vegetation while coming in contact with some comical characters. It’s not the family musical you saw many years ago, but the story stays intact and fun to watch. Read more…

Review by John Delia

Arriving this week to home video Zootopia should make a big splash. So far my choice for the best animated film this year and it’s perfect for everyone. The family friendly characters are cute and cuddly and you’d even give a big hug to the plushy pushy bad guys. Kids are sure to attempt to try and wear out the disc, but with summer already here, that’s a good thing. Read more…

Review by John Delia

One of the most visually spectacular sea stories The Finest Hours shows the courage, determination and stamina of a small crew of Coast Guardsmen who faced death during rescue operation in a raging storm. Now on Blu-ray/DVD or in a special combo pack. the depiction of the factual account gets so realistic and powerful that it will put you on the edge of your living room chair. The cinematography and CGI take you for a scary rollercoaster ride on huge waves during a tempest that’s one of the most remarkable piece of film footage for the screen. Read more…
