Review by John M. Delia, Jr

Visually amazing and thrilling, the movie The Great Wall certainly has the best effects and story thus far in 2017. Even though most of the film makes the use of a massive amount of CGI, that’s not a bad thing here as the production certainly warrants it. If you are a fan of high impact movies like World War Z, then this film should be on your list to see this weekend. Read more…

Review by John Delia

Oddly enough the film A Cure for Wellness actually makes a lot of sense. The two hour and a half film delves into the psyche of a man who tries to make contact with the boss of his company. The mystery thriller takes a few twists and turns on its way to providing closure while leading the viewer through a suspense filled labyrinth of deception. Read more…

“Fanny’s Journey” (Written Film Review & Trailer)

Review by John Delia

The courageous and compelling true story Fanny’s Journey (le Voyage de Fanny) takes you on a journey during WWII that grabs its audience early on and doesn’t let go until the credits role. It’s as much inspiring as it is dauntless, featuring a fine cast of youngsters that should touch your heart and remind you that heroism can come in small packages. Read more…

Review by John Delia

If you are familiar with the original movie two years ago, John Wick: Chapter 2 serves up a heaping helping of violence this time around as well. The action packed hitman film moves from New York to Rome, Italy where violence explodes Italian style. Although you need not have seen the first film, it wouldn’t hurt to relive it a bit on video. Especially if you may be hesitant about seeing a second passionate ode to carnage. Read more…

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…

When’s the last time you saw a good dog movie with love, devotion and heroism? Not the animated type, but one that stars dogs doing some awesome stunts, creating the love for animals and even inspirational. Well you can find all that and more in the movie A Dog’s Purpose, a fun, adventure of a dog’s life that runs full circle.

Review by John Delia

The coming of age movie 20th Century Women takes a look at life askew in the late 70’s for a single mother of a teenage boy. Nicely written the film features very good performances lead by a director that has lived the age of the boy during that time period. Nominated for two Golden Globes, it’s now in the hands of the members of the Academy of Arts and Sciences that may vote for 20th Century Women for an Oscar. Read more…

The Light Between Oceans (Blu-ray Film Review & Trailer)

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…

“Split” (Written Review & Trailer)

Review by John Delia

Very disturbing and frightening at times, the film Split puts director M. Night Shyamalan back in movie theaters. Coming off the sinister shocker The Visit, which earned over $98 million in 2015, he’s chosen a good weekend for his new horror thriller with its only competition xXx sequel and The Founder. The trailer should drive all the thrill seekers and especially mature pre-teens to 20’s horror fans into seats this weekend, making it the top box-office winner. But except for a few of Shyamalan’s movies, it has his signature weak “how did that just happen” finale. Read more…
