Review by John Delia, Sr.

Having reviewed a large number of films with the subject of WWII and the persecution of the Jews, I’m familiar with the holocaust, but not the subject matter that deals with this one about the aftermath in the country of Hungary. In the film “1945” the story takes you to a small town where some of the people profited from their dishonesty involving land and businesses takeovers within this strange justified story of payback Read more…

Review by John Delia, Sr.

Mind boggling, the film In the Fade takes you on a path to revenge that doesn’t let up till the final minute of the movie. With a stellar performance by Diane Kruger and fine direction by Fatih Akin the film stands out as one of the best foreign films of 2018. If you like compelling movies that touch the edgy side of the headlines, then this film will work for you. Read more…

“The Post” Exposing the Pentagon Papers

Review by John Delia, Sr.

Several movies have been released over the past three decades that defend the press or show the importance of the media to inform the public. This is one of them that for the most part does expose the inner sanctum of one newspaper as it deals with exposing the government for wrong decisions leading to the death of thousands in the Vietnam War. While the script of The Post does reveal the sadness of human life losses that could have been avoided, unfortunately the film uses it to glorify newspapers using old news. Read more…

Review by John Delia, Sr.

The year kicks off with its first major action thriller The Commuter and it’s a barn burner. Total action after an introduction to the plot, the film takes you on the ride of your life with surprises on every turn. If you like gripping films that work on your mind to try and figure out who the perpetrator is and what they want, then this movie should be on the top of your list. And, its way better than last year’s Murder on the Orient Express. Read more…

Review by John Delia, Sr.

When you hear the genre biography most people think just another stuffy, lackluster film. Well, hold onto your seat because Molly’s Game gets compelling, openly poignant and powerful. The story has the usual buildup and Hollywood accoutrements, but the content is mostly true being based on the book by our subject Molly Bloom. Read more…

Review by John Delia, Sr.

Spy movies are a dime a dozen, but then one comes along that really takes you on an unexpected adventure. That’s the beauty of Stratton, an action packed film filled with excitement that’s fresh and different. It’s not James Bond or an episode of TV’s “24”, but a fun film that entertains with a bit of both. Read more…
