Review by John M. Delia, Jr

Visually amazing and thrilling, the movie The Great Wall certainly has the best effects and story thus far in 2017. Even though most of the film makes the use of a massive amount of CGI, that’s not a bad thing here as the production certainly warrants it. If you are a fan of high impact movies like World War Z, then this film should be on your list to see this weekend. Read more…

“John Wick: Chapter 2” (Written Film Review & Trailer)

Review by John Delia

If you are familiar with the original movie two years ago, John Wick: Chapter 2 serves up a heaping helping of violence this time around as well. The action packed hitman film moves from New York to Rome, Italy where violence explodes Italian style. Although you need not have seen the first film, it wouldn’t hurt to relive it a bit on video. Especially if you may be hesitant about seeing a second passionate ode to carnage. Read more…

Review by John Delia

Where I was not too fond of the first Jack Reacher film that came out in 2012, the sequel “Never Go Back” delivers much more energy. The action sequences are quite good even though they are not on par with Tom Cruise’s Mission Impossible series. In addition the storyline has pangs of déjà vu from other action films within the past years. All that said, if you are a big fan of Cruise or just want to escape to a movie where you can forget a bad day, then this military crime thriller should do the trick. Read more…

Review by John Delia

Hitch up your “hoss” to the nearest tie post, take your saddle into the nearest movie house and treat yourself to a hum dinger of a good time with The Magnificent Seven. It’s not the old 1960 rerun, but a spanking new show with memories of the original. Branded with Antoine Fuqua direction this wild west ditty has some mighty woop ass scenes that can rival the likes of Tombstone and Silverado. Read more…

Review by John Delia

The movie Hands of Stone follows the life of world champion boxer Roberto Duran. Well-acted by a fine cast, the film plays out much like the movie Ali where the top boxer stunned the world capturing the heavyweight crown. With Duran, the story gets a glazing of white wash, turns bullish and then a bit too sentimental for my taste. That said, I did enjoy the production value and the boxing action that looked very realistic. Read more…

Review by John Delia

Rivaling the dark comedy superhero movie Deadpool, the wacky Suicide Squad takes off with a blast and it will kickass this weekend. The sometimes hilarious action, adventure, science fiction thriller gets yanked from the DC comic books by super director David Ayer for the huge IMAX screen and other venues. It’s a monster of a film filled with, yup, a monstrous cast and tons of computer graphics to feed the audience targeted with an adrenaline rush. One of the better action releases this year, the film WILL make a ton of money at the box offices worldwide. Read more…

Review by John Delia

A very impressive, dramatic and exciting Star Trek Beyond opens this weekend and for trekkies, sci-fi enthusiasts and action film lovers it’s a perfect getaway. Overflowing with superb CGI effects, “fast and furious” explosiveness and settings beyond the beyond, the film should do very well in attendance at the box office. Best seen in the IMAX 3D format, the film jumps off the screen and drives you into the story as it gets played out in a galaxy of the future. Read more…

Review by John Delia

With a hefty $180 million dollar budget the film The Legend of Tarzan makes its bow this weekend looking for the PG-13 crowd to swing into action and make it a box office winner. The production used every bit of the budget with an adventure that takes you on a roller coaster ride; just taking time in between drops to catch your breath before moving on to the next exciting twist and turn.

Review by John Delia

While I’m not a gamer and have never played the game associated with the movie Warcraft, I am a huge fan of the trilogies Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit. So much so that I’ve had an empty feeling only filled with replays of the Blu-ray collection of the Rings and Hobbits. Then up pops Warcraft filled with orcs and dwarfs and humans battling it out on the IMAX screen. Not a complete substitute, but an impressive one that beyond gamers, those that love middle earth should enjoy the story, acting and battles galore. Read more…
