Get “Ready Player One”

April 1st, 2018 No comments



Review by Brent Lorentson

Like so many others, when I read the book “Ready Player One” by Ernest Cline I simply fell in love with the nostalgic ride through the 80’s, all thanks to the virtual reality world called The Oasis. From start to finish it is a book filled with pop culture references that would make film and video game geeks squeal with delight. It was no surprise that the book was a hit and would be turned into a film. There were only two names I could think of that could ever come close to making this film a reality: Robert Zemeckis and Steven Spielberg. With Spielberg involved, he is the only person I could imagine that has the clout to get all the licensing rights needed to pull off this adaption. But still the biggest question I had was, does Spielberg still have it in him? I’m not questioning the man’s talent, but instead it’s the magic and wonder he would have to bring to his films. Would it be another Close Encounters of the Third Kind, ET, or Jurassic Park, where he was able get us to believe the fantastic and impossible is real while we sit in a dark auditorium watching his film?

March 26th, 2018 No comments





Review combined content by John Delia, Sr and John M. Delia, Jr.

Add another sequel of Star Wars to you library as “The Last Jedi” has been released in several formats for home viewing. The new adventure takes its audience further into the future where we find ageing Luke Skywalker and the development of characters from “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” including Daisy Ridley’s Ray and Oscar Isaac’s Poe. The film not only brings you up to date on Skywalker, but introduces parts of the galaxy that will probably be used in future saga’s. Although this is a much needed link, you will not find it as powerful as “The Force Awakens.” Read more…

Review by John Delia, Sr.

The year kicks off with its first major action thriller The Commuter and it’s a barn burner. Total action after an introduction to the plot, the film takes you on the ride of your life with surprises on every turn. If you like gripping films that work on your mind to try and figure out who the perpetrator is and what they want, then this movie should be on the top of your list. And, its way better than last year’s Murder on the Orient Express. Read more…

Review by John Delia, Sr.

Spy movies are a dime a dozen, but then one comes along that really takes you on an unexpected adventure. That’s the beauty of Stratton, an action packed film filled with excitement that’s fresh and different. It’s not James Bond or an episode of TV’s “24”, but a fun film that entertains with a bit of both. Read more…
