Written review by John M Delia Jr.

The hit television show from the 90’s has now made its way to the silver screen with a funny action comedy version of the long running series called, “Baywatch.” Just like in the television show the group of lifeguards go above and beyond to save others and stop crime on their beaches. The difference is that this time it takes place in Florida and with a very popular cast. If you like rowdy and raunchy, then check out the movie Baywatch. Read more…

“CHUCK” (Written Review & Trailer)

Review by John Delia, Sr.

The real “Rocky” makes his bid for fame with the movie Chuck, the mostly true story of the prize fighter who went 15 rounds with Mahammad Ali in 1975. It’s the fighter that Sylvester Stallone carved his Oscar winning movie from and Chuck Wepner’s story comes to the screen more than 4 decades later. Well-acted directed and produced, the film has a lot of Hollywood heart and even more heartaches. Read more…

“ALIEN: COVENANT” (Written Review & Trailer)

Review by John Delia, Sr.

If you have never seen an Alien movie on the big screen or are a diehard fan of the creatures, then check out the newest installment called Alien: Covenant. The film has all the horror value of the first two and if you saw Prometheus a better understanding of this one as well. The only drawback is the scare meter, especially for the moviegoers who already know what the aliens look like, how they are “born” and their attack mode. But, for the storyline the film has some merit, although it may give most fans déjà vu. Read more…

Review by John Delia, Sr.

Wild, engaging and sometimes disturbing, yet heartfelt, the film Like Crazy (La Pazza Gioia) opens in theaters this weekend. The story plays out like a One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest with a little bit of Thelma and Louise. The acting in the film by the whole cast is exceptionally good and the direction pinpoint sharp. If you would like a little laughter in your evening mixed with a lot of heart, then check out Like Crazy. Read more…

“Norman” (Written Review & Trailer)

Review by John Delia, Sr.

A cool film that has a lot of heart, Norman tells a tale of a lost soul that tries to turn his life around. Played out Woody Allen style the film has a lot of dialogue and quick responses that get you caught up in the life of a man who has found his niche in the world, yet can’t come to grips with failure. If you like movies that build a character that gets caught up in his own mistakes, then this one is sure to please. Read more…

“King Arthur: Legend of the Sword” (Written Review & Trailer)

Review by John M. Delia, Jr.

In the film King Arthur: Legend of the Sword the world of wizards, mages, knights, and kings form the legend of the sword Excalibur. With a different perspective than I had originally thought, Guy Ritchie’s world has Mordred as the enemy wizard in the midst of destroying King Uther Pendragon’s kingdom and his brother in-law Vortigern waiting for his chance at the crown. The film has merit and a strong supposition, but be forewarned it’s not consistent with early legends. Read more…

Review by John Delia, Sr.

A mesmerizing true story that makes you cringe, wince and shudder, The Wall takes you into the backyard of Iraq at the end of the war. Well-acted and directed the movie keeps you on the edge of your seat from the opening sequence to the gut wrenching ending. Much like the film The American Sniper you’ll be holding your breath and squirming in your seat during the tense nearly an hour and a half. Read more…

“A Quiet Passion” (Written Review & Trailer)

Review by John Delia, Sr.

Strong willed Emily Dickinson’s biography comes to the screen in A Quiet Passion with a sharp delivery by actress Cynthia Nixon and it’s a personification you’ll not easily forget. Dressed in 19th century clothing and placed in an antebellum setting the actress holds nothing back as the real life story unfolds with unrelenting chastisement. If you like her works of mostly poetry and essays than this period piece is your cup of bitter tea. Read more…

Review by John Delia, Sr.

The fun modern day dark comedy One Week and a Day follows the plight of a family in Israel not unlike most Americans in the same situation. While there’s a lot of serious moments, the story shows that a lot goes into healing beyond Shiva. Good acting and plot, if you want to laugh and cry, check out this film when it comes to a theater near you. Read more…
