“21 Bridges” A Powerful Thriller

Review by John Delia

A high energy movie, 21 Bridges opens with a bang and never stops until the final curtain. Leading the reasons for its appeal for crime action films is the acting by Chadwick Boseman and the direction by Brian Kirk. The film has a lot of potential to take the box office by storm and probably will this weekend. It may be a little predictable, but if you need something to distract you from the daily routine, then take this wild ride. Read more…

Review by John Delia

Actually a lot better than Pearl Harbor and the first time the movie Midway was produced, this version by Roland Emmerich is sharp, compelling and an edge of your seat thriller. Even if you are not a fan of war movies, the film does have a lot of patriotic courage, determination and historical significance that honor’s our fallen heroes. The film pulls no punches as it plays out showing the choices that were made both good and bad, both in the heat of battle on the ships at sea and by aircraft pilots. Read more…

Review by John Delia

Taking a lot of liberties while giving a cinematic interpretation of a time in his life, Pedro Almodovar movie Pain & Glory is as expressive as Roma. His directorial and screenwriting is by far some of the best I’ve seen by the famous director and yes there’s a spark of surprise in this one as in every one of his films. Taking extra liberties he even shocks his audience at one point. That said, if you are a fan of Almodovar’s films than you will not want to miss the amazing performances that bring the man’s film to the big screen. Read more…

During these times things were beginning to modernize and the world was becoming more dependent on advancement in the skyline. With these changes corruption and deceit became more evident and the need for private investigators became more popular. Read more…

Review by John M. Delia, Jr.

“Our future depends on brave souls that can save us from the machines that can destroy us all.” With the hero’s in Terminator: Dark Fate their past lives are more important than their actions that give Earth the strength to defend itself. Can these evils that are right in front of the populous ever be defeated? It would give modern Earth a possible future that is safe from the mechanical soldiers of doom that are about to invade the future?
