Review by John Delia, Sr.

At first I thought I was getting in over my head when I agreed to reviewing In Search of Israeli Cuisine as I know very little about their food. Having grown up Italian, give me a film on Italian food and I’m right there. However, I found this film not just about food, but about the State of Israel, its nation and its people. Delighted with the movie I could not stop watching it till the final minute, it’s an eye opener. Read more…

Review by John Delia, Sr.

The interesting drama The Dinner puts you in the middle of a meeting that turns a family upside down over a cruel incident that will affect their lives forever. Nicely directed by Oren Moverman the film turns a contentious situation into a battle between brothers that sickens as the predictable story plays out. Sometime tough to contemplate, The Dinner gives the audience a full four course meal in destroying relationships. Read more…

Review by John M. Delia, Jr.

Perfect for children Rapunzel returns to the home screen with “Tangled: Before Ever After”, a fun filled animated film. The animated feature has been rated TV-Y7 for a bit of bedazzling and bungling by the dastardly Lady Caine and her henchmen, but for the most part its fun for the younger set. Read more…

Sweet and endearing the movie Gifted tells an inspiring story of determination and affection.

Review by John Delia

Marriage, mayhem and a baby drive Toretto’s gang to save the world in The Fate of the Furious a “squeal-quel” for the ages. The film has the energy to drive its followers in to theater seats several times. Keeping the formula of fast cars, hot women and rowdy men the franchise continues to be alive and well. The only question comes with how do you top this one without being repetitive? You can’t! It’s what the fans want and it will survive for another time around.

Review by John M. Delia, Jr.

Putting a twist on the original movie Going in Style, director Zach Braff does a good job of reviving the comedy for modern day audiences. He turns up the laughter with memorable situation comedy and actors who can deliver some of the best one liners. It’s a lot of fun for a date night or just a chance to get away from the hum drum to laugh a little. Read more…

“The Blackcoat’s Daughter” (Written Review & Trailer)

Review by John Delia

This gruesome horror thriller The Blackcoat’s Daughter has more suspense than most and that’s a good thing for those that like to try and figure things out before they happen. But, you’ll have a tough time figuring this thriller out as Director and writer Osgood Perkins knows how to set up a story without giving it all away. Dark and sinister the acting crew works their magic with performances that are chilling, daemonic and entrancing. Great for men, but better for the ladies, it’s a ladies night out for those that like a grisly shocker. Read more…
