Review by John Delia

Perfect for children Rapunzel returns to the home screen with “Tangled: Before Ever After”, a fun filled animated film. The animated feature has been rated TV-Y7 for a bit of bedazzling and bungling by the dastardly Lady Caine and her henchmen, but for the most part its fun for the younger set. Read more…

Review by John Delia

Marriage, mayhem and a baby drive Toretto’s gang to save the world in The Fate of the Furious a “squeal-quel” for the ages. The film has the energy to drive its followers in to theater seats several times. Keeping the formula of fast cars, hot women and rowdy men the franchise continues to be alive and well. The only question comes with how do you top this one without being repetitive? You can’t! It’s what the fans want and it will survive for another time around.

Review by John Delia

Putting a twist on the original movie Going in Style, director Zach Braff does a good job of reviving the comedy for modern day audiences. He turns up the laughter with memorable situation comedy and actors who can deliver some of the best one liners. It’s a lot of fun for a date night or just a chance to get away from the hum drum to laugh a little. Read more…

Review by John Delia

This gruesome horror thriller The Blackcoat’s Daughter has more suspense than most and that’s a good thing for those that like to try and figure things out before they happen. But, you’ll have a tough time figuring this thriller out as Director and writer Osgood Perkins knows how to set up a story without giving it all away. Dark and sinister the acting crew works their magic with performances that are chilling, daemonic and entrancing. Great for men, but better for the ladies, it’s a ladies night out for those that like a grisly shocker. Read more…

Review by John Delia

Rude, crude, extremely silly and violent the movie CHIPS has all of this and more. But, what you would expect from this parody of a TV series that won the hearts of millions in the mid 1970’s to early 80’s? A lot more than a lame remake. Billed as a crime drama, it’s more of a comedy with messy direction and over the top ridiculousness. I can go one step further; “CHIPS” was never a campy offensive show that relied on sex gags and stupidity to get laughs. That said, only go see it if you crave movies like Hot Tub Time Machine, Get Him to the Greek or Sex Drive to name a few. Read more…
