Review by John Delia, Sr.

Totally hilarious The Hitman’s Bodyguard turns into a wild ride early on in this action comedy “odd couple” movie. The script may give you a bit of déjà vu, but it’s well worth the laughs and thrills. Certainly a nice cap to a “dinner and a movie”, as Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson are a hoot together.

Review by John Delia, Sr

Even if you are a big fan of Stephen King the writer who gave us many horror novels that were made into movies like Cujo, Christine, It, Carrie, Children of the Corn and many others, The Dark Tower may not be for you. This action adventure aims for the science fiction base that follows films like Cloud Atlas, John Carter, Guardians of the Galaxy and the recent Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets.

Review by John M. Delia, Jr.

During World War II prior to the Americans joining the European part of the War the French and English were pushed back to the sea near the city of Dunkirk. Their only conclusion was to evacuate across the channel quickly and try to avoid the onslaught of the German aerial warfare (Luftwaffe). Dunkirk depicts the struggle the English had trying to get back across the channel. The true story is considered one of the bloodiest and most tragic part of the war for the allies. Read more…

“VALERIAN AND THE CITY OF A THOUSAND PLANETS” (Written Review & Trailer)

Review by John Delia, Sr

It would be a challenge to give this film a pass especially for the terrific special visual effects, designs of the many creatures and for the many hours the two main characters must have labored in their roles, but Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets drags and drones through nearly 2 and a half hours. Even as I write this review, I am tempted to alter my opinion, but it wouldn’t help the awful music moaning in the background in nearly every “exciting” scene, plot holes that are beyond fantasy, and negative attempts at virtual reality. Adults looking for adventure will be hard pressed to find it to their liking, much like John Carter fell on its face with the over 25-year-olds. Read more…

“SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING” (Written Review & Trailer)

Review by John Delia, Sr.

In Spider-Man: Homecoming, it’s not how Peter Parker became Spider-Man, but what he did to become part of The Avengers. Other series attempts beginning with the original big screen Spider-Man starring Tobey McGuire in 2002 and followed by The Amazing Spider-Man starring Andrew Garfield in 2012 unleashed a cartoonish character. In this new release of the web casting warrior you’ll see how he’s being “reinvented” as a superhero and where he fits into the grand scheme of Marvel Comics Universe. Read more…

“King Arthur: Legend of the Sword” (Written Review & Trailer)

Review by John M. Delia, Jr.

In the film King Arthur: Legend of the Sword the world of wizards, mages, knights, and kings form the legend of the sword Excalibur. With a different perspective than I had originally thought, Guy Ritchie’s world has Mordred as the enemy wizard in the midst of destroying King Uther Pendragon’s kingdom and his brother in-law Vortigern waiting for his chance at the crown. The film has merit and a strong supposition, but be forewarned it’s not consistent with early legends. Read more…
