Surviving Exile on the “Isle of Dogs”

April 13th, 2018 No comments

 

 

 

Review by John Delia, Sr.

Offbeat, heavy-handed characters, bleak outcast situations, and moody, it’s a marvelous adventure for those who like Wes Anderson movies. This one however shows his range with an animated film that’s worthy of most Japanese greats. From the opening drum introduction of Isle of Dogs to the heartfelt finale, Anderson captures a cold disturbing environment from which his characters can rise up. If you like offbeat stories produced in stop motion animation in the vein of Tim Burton’s Corpse Bride and Frankenweenie then this film should not be missed. Read more…

Get “Ready Player One”

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?

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…
