“SPY INTERVENTION” A Wacky Comedy

February 13th, 2020 No comments

 

 

Review by John Delia

Wacky spy comedies are fun, especially if they have an exciting plot with many surprises and an unexpected outcome. The movie Spy Intervention has a story that’s a bit different than the usual, it’s much like saving Queen Elizabeth (The Naked Gun) or stopping evil (Spy Hard) or even 2015’s Spy with Melissa McCarthy tracking down an arms dealer. Spy Intervention doesn’t have the star power to make it a blockbuster, but the actors try very hard to please. Not hilarious, but certainly very funny, the movie fills the void that has been absent of late. Read more…

Review by John Delia

One of the best films in recent past for action fans, Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) comes to the screen with a kickass movie that should please the pulp fiction fan base. It’s a follow up to DC Comics’ Suicide Squad for one of their characters, Harley Quinn, and the start of a probable spinoff series. In this episode it explains Harley Quinn’s past and her failing love life that had fallen apart when Joker decided to part ways. But, you can’t keep this wild DC Comic character down as you’ll find out in Birds of Prey. Read more…

“THE HUNT FOR VLAD THE IMPALER” Action Adventure

Review by John Delia

Bringing you back to the 15th Century with a historical action thriller, the movie The Hunt for Vlad the Impaler is now available on VOD, Blu-ray and DVD. The film has some good acting, direction and production value, especially the costuming and special effects. The filmmakers do explain the history a bit, but I have not fact checked it for the opening dialogue on the subject. Actually most of the audiences that will watch the film will be more attuned to the warring factions and the bloody battles. The film has been dubbed in English so it may throw you off a bit, but for the most part they use adequate voice overs that are equal to each of the characters persona. Get caught up in the story early and you will enjoy it as intended. Read more…

“INVASION PLANET EARTH” Now on DVD

Review by John Delia

The cool little indie Invasion Planet Earth has been released in North America on DVD, VOD and through digital cable providers. It’s a fun science fiction story that depicts a “new beginning” for the planet that has destroyed most of its population through a terrorist act and finds itself in the hands of aliens that hold the final key to life and death. The production as to explosions and space travel may look a little stark, uneven and not as incredible as movies like Star Wars, but are still viably entertaining to an audience. The directing, acting and script are very good and the presentation on your home televisions should make the experience enjoyable. Read more…

A fun family film Dolittle comes to local theaters with an exciting adventure, characters and storyline. Nicely played by Robert Downey Jr. as Dr. Dolittle, direction by Oscar winner Stephen Graham and with some amazing CGI, it’s a winner. Even if you’re not a youngster the movie spreads that feel-good satisfaction to any age. Make sure you watch this one at a local theatre with their big screens so you get the complete effect and enjoyment. Read more…

“A SERIAL KILLER’S GUIDE TO LIFE” now on Digital HD

Review by John Delia

Quirky and twisted, A Serial Killer’s Guide to Life is one movie that will keep you wincing throughout the 81 minutes of mindboggling carnage. Once it gets started the movie becomes a roller coaster ride of death that’s not stopping to look back. It’s a very dark comedy and the actors are excellent at depicting the insanity as it rolls along to a surprise ending. Did I say the film is sadistic? The film is billed as another Thelma and Louise, but those two ladies in that movie were girl scouts compared to Lou and Valerie in A Serial Killer’s Guide to Life. Read more…

“Maleficent: Mistress of Evil” Now on 4K, Blu-ray, DVD

Review by John Delia

Maleficent: Mistress of Evil brings a powerhouse of Disney magic that will astound and delight everyone even on their home screens. Filled with so many characters that you will want to stop and count them as they fly by and even freeze frame them to get a better look. The direction is incredible keeping the main actors in character as they work in front of the stage screens. It’s the kind of wonderment that boggles the mind, especially with the opening scenes and later during the battle. Youngsters will enjoy the film and want to see it over and over again. Parents will marvel at the storyline that stretches the imagination beyond the first Maleficent movie. Whether it’s on 4k, Blu-ray or even DVD, the film is seamless and clear. Read more…

“Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker” Comes to its Conclusion

December 20th, 2019 No comments

 

Review by: John M. Delia, Jr.

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker is the beginning come full circle. After 42 years the Lucas Films brings the saga to a conclusion in this awesome finale. And like in 1977 when it all began, the exploits still amaze. The space adventure phenomena continues the same credo, “everyone seeks the belief that good will always triumph over evil”. Bringing in a new set of heroes that are fighting for the same causes as their predecessors, carries on the belief that what is right will always prevail in the end.
