“Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom” Aesthetically Brilliant

June 22nd, 2018 No comments

 

 

 

 

Review by John Delia

Chapter two of Jurassic World follows with a phrase “Fallen Kingdom” and with that it’ll be no surprise if the box office is softer than expected. Even though the film is as action packed as its previous outing, the series has become “more of the same” and too much of looking back at the past. Saving the film from dropping below average the filmmakers have two big things going for it, aesthetically brilliant CGI and Chris Pratt who adds his brand of humor that keeps the movie a bit comical among the serious thrills.

“American Animals” A Senseless Crime

Review by John Delia

It’s a true story and a very disturbing one based on the motive, senselessness and outcome of the crime it depicts. Set in Lexington, Kentucky the film could have been anywhere in the world, and the result has the distinct possibility of ending upside down. Depicted in the artists own paintings, the animals therein show as much random viciousness for their prey as the subjects in the movie American Animals. Excellent direction, acting and portrayal of the crime however, makes it a must see. The unique thing about the film is that you get to see all four of the real perpetrators of the crime intermittently throughout the movie. Read more…

The original Disney/PIXAR’S The Incredibles was very unique for a Disney animated film. When this film hit the theaters, it blew the minds of the people going to see it. Now 14 years later, a sequel has arrived with an original story full of adventure and comedy.

As for the audience of the first movie who are now beyond kiddie age, they will be ecstatic as the newbies. Read more…

A Mom’s Point of View of “Incredibles 2”

Review by Susan Phillips

It’s been 14 years since taking my two children to see PIXAR’s The Incredibles. I do remember my 4 and 8 year olds having a great time at the movie. So being with them at a special screening of Incredibles 2 was something even more special for me, because this time I was with my third child of 12-year-old that was added since the movie came out. Understood, she has seen the first movie on video several times, but this time she got to see the sequel on IMAX and each of them loved the comedy, heroic storyline and the cool animation.

“Hereditary” Evil in the House

Review by John Delia, Sr.

Spooky and very edgy the movie Hereditary should delight horror fans that are into the occult. Even though you may get a feeling of déjà vu from other films that have included supernatural incidents, the acting here keeps it sinister enough to carry the fan base. If you like sick and twisted films like Rosemary’s Baby and The Witch, this is your cauldron of tea. Read more…

Review by John Delia, Sr.

One of my favorites as a kid and one that remains exciting and fun for youngsters, Peter Pan has been admitted to the Walt Disney Signature Collection.

“A Wrinkle in Time” Now on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray and DVD

Review by Ian Delia, Teen View

If you had the power to travel through the universe, would you do it? The Disney movie A Wrinkle in Time, now on Blu-ray/DVD, takes inter-dimensional travel to a higher level where this can happen. The film keeps you guessing through the whole hour and 49 minutes and that makes it interesting. The planet to which the characters are taken is in a different universe filled with bright vibrant colors. The amazing use of CGI pops the new world out of the screen giving a peaceful and positive perspective of that dimension. Disney has exceeded expectations with A Wrinkle in Time and the movie will give you the biggest rush of emotions all the way till the very end. Read more…

“Deadpool 2” Continues to Amaze

Critics have been asked by Twentieth Century Fox to not give away any major plot spoilers for the movie Deadpool 2. They feel that it would ruin the whole experience for our readers and avid followers of the lunatic superhero. (Oops I gave away that he is a lunatic, but anyone and everyone who is savvy of the Marvel Comics characters knows he’s crazy). So I thought it over and checked out Marvel’s website to find out what their synopsis is for the sequel. None of which gives away any portion of the plot, actually it’s not even one iota of the plot.
