Review by John Delia

Coming to the screen this weekend is the movie It Chapter Two, a continuation of the iconic horror flick. The movie not only frightened the world, but added to the  damper put on the comical caricatures that were so loved back in the day. This episode, however is basically a remake of the 3 hour two part TV Mini-Series that was released in 1990. This release does have amazing production value that far outweighs the TV presentation of the same film. I wish I hadn’t seen the TV show as therefore it’s a bit of a downer. Read more…

Touching and inspiring, the movie Edie transforms a woman who has unselfishly given her life to others and is determined to complete a challenge on her own as recompense. With fine direction, impressive acting and a script that’s heartfelt, it’s a must see for melodrama fans. Filmed entirely in Scotland, Edie has an aura of grandeur and adds a longing for travelers.

“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…

“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…
