“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…

“WAR FOR THE PLANET OF THE APES” (Written Review & Trailer)

Review By Gino Sassani

“All of human history has led to this moment. The irony is we created you. And nature has been punishing us ever since. This is our last stand. And if we lose… it will be a Planet of Apes.”

I was always a fan of the original Planet of the Apes series of films. While they often flirted with a camp style, I was impressed with John Chambers’ makeup effects and the performances of Roddy McDowall as both Cornelius and Caesar. Then came the television show and I remained just as enchanted because of McDowall’s appearance as a third ape, Galen. The show didn’t last a season however, and before long the Apes franchise was left in some kind of limbo. Read more…

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…

Written Review by John Delia, Sr.

Charging down the track Disney PIXAR’s first entry into theaters for 2017 Cars 3 crosses the finish line a winner for kids and families. As usual PIXAR goes straight for the heart and delivers an uplifting tale of friendship, determination and good values with which the children can aspire. To set everyone up for the movie, a cartoon about a troubled youth should bring a heartwarming glow from “LOU”. Read more…

“ALIEN: COVENANT” (Written Review & Trailer)

Review by John Delia, Sr.

If you have never seen an Alien movie on the big screen or are a diehard fan of the creatures, then check out the newest installment called Alien: Covenant. The film has all the horror value of the first two and if you saw Prometheus a better understanding of this one as well. The only drawback is the scare meter, especially for the moviegoers who already know what the aliens look like, how they are “born” and their attack mode. But, for the storyline the film has some merit, although it may give most fans déjà vu. 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…
