“Tone-Deaf” a Hellish Nightmare

Review by John Delia

Very brutal, the horror flick Tone-Deaf takes you into the confines of a hellish nightmare. Like most slasher films, this one follows the same formula of trapping someone in a secluded place and taunting them until the final coup de grace. The twist does make the film a bit better than some, but still just a bit above average. Read more…

A very cool film that makes you feel good The Peanut Butter Falcon opens this weekend and it’s a charmer.

Lovable, heartfelt and totally awesome, the movie opens this weekend. Read more…

“Burn” Out-of-Control Thriller

Review by John Delia

How many times have you pulled into a gas station that has a convenience store and gone in for a soft drink or a snack? If you are anything like me, then very often, especially at night following a screening of a film. Well, the film Burn will make you think twice on which convenience store you’ll choose next time you’re out and about. Nicely directed and written the film Burn is the reason I asked the question. It’s a daunting little film that grabs you and won’t let go until the credits roll. Read more…

“Tel Aviv on Fire” Comedy with a Twist

Review by John Delia

The film Tel Aviv on Fire is a comedy of sorts that entertains with a duel story. The acting is very good and so is the direction, but the very contrived storyline is a matinee soap opera that lacks brilliance. Not my cup of tea, the movie bounces around a bit too much and if you are not aware of the ethnic differences between Israel and Palestine, it may confuse. Read more…

“Ready or Not” Blood Runs Red

Review by John Delia

Just when you think you have seen every way a person can get killed in a horror flick, up pops Ready or Not. It’s one of the most diabolical blood baths that I’ve seen in several years. The movie’s a comedy however, and it does play out that way making the film one of the better of the genre. Nicely acted and directed, yet predictable, it’s how it gets to the end that’s the rollercoaster ride of ups and downs that entertains. Think the movie Get Out with lots more of the wicked craziness.

“Star Wars: Resistance Season 1” on DVD Teen View

Teen Review by Ian Delia

Who would’ve thought an animated TV show could be this good? Star Wars has always had a big place in my heart and definitely still does. If you still have questions about what happened between episode 6 Return of the Jedi and episode 7 The Force Awakens then you are going to need to watch this television series. It may have the age appropriate rating of “TV-Y7″ but that never means it’s not excellent or unimportant. In fact I think this is crucial to the whole aspect of what goes on with and how the First Order comes to be. First off this show is amazing and second of all, everything is now settling in my mind because it answers all the questions I’ve had since the time gap between episodes 6 and 7. Read more…

Review by John Delia

Touching and compelling, the movie After the Wedding tells a twisting tale of happenstance and inspiration. Not your ordinary straight forward story, the movie opens with a heartfelt reality, then takes you on a journey to a woman’s past that plays into a miracle of sorts. Read more…

“Driven” Living in Overdrive

Review by John Delia

More of a drama than a comedy, the film Driven gets its title from a well-known auto designer who finds himself in deep trouble in this semi-biographical account. The story is based on true facts and if you ever wondered what happened to John DeLorean in the late 1970’s and early 1980’s to disgrace his name, here’s a cool way to find out. Read more…

“Avengers: Endgame” the Retaliation Begins

Review by John Delia

As the final chapter concludes, it’s good bye to the superhero battalion and one of their masterful powerhouses. Now, I do know this in mind and heart, that the Marvel live action characters were extremely good as a team and on their own. While we THINK they will never work together in the future, let’s not forget that the actors who portrayed them may get bored sitting around for another role to play and then what? There are so many other baddies out there in space, even Captain Marvel states that on film. So my guess is look for some single Marvel character films, before the screams for an assembly are so loud that the studio will cave-in to another Avengers. Read more…
