Review by John M. Delia Jr.

Take a wild ride on Kong: Skull Island a slick new film about the ferocious Gorilla that never fails to amaze. However the campy story and the chaotic acting, one thing still remains, it’s the violent, creepy and mysterious creatures that will get you every time. What lies on the surface is terrifying enough, but what lies below, unstoppable. As for the real rollercoaster ride, read my comment below. Read more…

Review by John Delia

Being able to deliver a good western isn’t easy, especially when most of the plots have already been brought to the screen. But, writer/director Martin Koolhoven takes a shot at turning the old west into a thriller that boggles the mind with its twists, turns and surprises and it works big time. His Brimstone stacks up against the best including Quinton Tarantino’s The Hateful Eight and Alejandro González Iñárritu’s The Revenant. Read more…

Review by John Delia

Schmaltzy but fun to watch, the movie The Women’s Balcony personifies a women’s protest to regain their honor. It’s more than just a film about who’s right or wrong, the film shows how people can compromise and come together over an issue. Filled with energy and chutzpah no man would dare turn a blind eye on this fight for woman’s rights. Read more…

Review by John Delia

An apropos title for the film On the Map opens in several cities in Florida this weekend and it’s exciting, heartwarming and inspirational. Set in Israel following the Yom Kippur War, the documentary captures the serious issues of the people, the challenges before them and a team of basketball players that dig deep into their hearts for a chance to get their country recognized as nation in the eyes of the world. This is not an ordinary sports movie, but a historical tribute to the men who made it all happen some 40 years ago. Read more…

“Table 19” (Written Review & Trailer)

Review by John Delia

Not the best comedy I’ve watched, the movie Table 19 unfortunately has a dull script that may have been a good idea, but just doesn’t work. The direction and the comedic scenes are not funny and the cast of well-known actors are off kilter. Even the chemistry between the leads just isn’t there. It’s about a wedding reception gone wrong for a forlorn guest that just can’t come to grips with haven been rejected and that’s more drama than this comedy can handle. Read more…

“Doctor Strange” on Blu-ray (Written Review & Trailer)

Review by John Delia

Marvel Studios continues to amaze with its use of astonishing computer graphic effects in the movie Doctor Strange now on DVD/Blu-ray and Digital HD. The film takes you into the realm of superheroes, this time a neurosurgeon who finds his body in ruin only to become a mystic with unusual powers. It’s a different kind of crusader, one that must rely on his own natural strengths in a world of antagonists with similar powers. It may be a detour from films like The Avengers and Thor, but one that keeps its main target audience enthralled throughout. Read more…

Review by John Delia

Disturbing and provocative the movie Get Out turns up the volume on suspense and terror. One of the better scary films in a long time, the movie challenges you from the very start as to the motives of a family gathering with a “Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner” impression that turns sour. If you like fright films like The Visit this is your cup of tea. Read more…
