November 2nd, 2019 No comments

 

 

Review by John M. Delia, Jr.

“Our future depends on brave souls that can save us from the machines that can destroy us all.” With the hero’s in Terminator: Dark Fate their past lives are more important than their actions that give Earth the strength to defend itself. Can these evils that are right in front of the populous ever be defeated? It would give modern Earth a possible future that is safe from the mechanical soldiers of doom that are about to invade the future?

Roaring into the home entertainment market Walt Disney’s The Lion King live action release brings the adventure to the living room and on the road with several media including 4K, Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD.

“Maleficent: Mistress of Evil” See it in IMAX

Review by John Delia

A Trojan horse of a movie, Maleficent: Mistress of Evil brings a powerhouse of Disney magic that will astound and delight everyone. Filled with so many characters that you will want to either see it again on the big screen or get it on home video so you can freeze frame to see every one of the munchkins close up. The direction is incredible keeping the main actors in character in the thick of things with all that’s going around them. And as far as the cinematography goes, it’s a wow. And although it has a lot of adventurous action sequences, this sequel doesn’t get as dark as the first one. Read more…

“Ad Astra” Saving the Planet

Review by John Delia

The film Ad Astra may seem like an edge of your seat film with scenes that keep you enthralled, but there’s more to a movie than special effects. The storyline is actually too simple, leaves a lot of questions and becomes more of a travelogue than a drama. In IMAX the movie seems like a lot of the documentaries about space that show the space station, walking in space and much more. Unfortunately this ride takes you on a journey to nowhere and back more documentary fashion than exciting thrills. Read more…

Review by John Delia

Flying in on the magic carpet and joining the Disney’s Signature Collection on Blu-ray is the fun animated film Aladdin. The film originally was released in 1992 and is still a favorite of youngsters. Whether you are a collector of the Disney treasure trove of animated classics or not, this 27 year old gem still entertains the youngest to pre-teen and young at heart. The music is very memorable and the comedy with Robin Williams as the Genie a fun adventure. Read more…

“Avengers: Endgame” the Retaliation Begins

Review by John Delia

As the final chapter concludes, it’s good bye to the superhero battalion and one of their masterful powerhouses. Now, I do know this in mind and heart, that the Marvel live action characters were extremely good as a team and on their own. While we THINK they will never work together in the future, let’s not forget that the actors who portrayed them may get bored sitting around for another role to play and then what? There are so many other baddies out there in space, even Captain Marvel states that on film. So my guess is look for some single Marvel character films, before the screams for an assembly are so loud that the studio will cave-in to another Avengers. Read more…

Review by John Delia

A very family friendly film the movie Dora and the Lost City of Gold enters theaters this weekend and it’s a sure winner with children 5 to 13. The box-office revenue for the film will experience a boost with the many parents that will accompany the films audience. It’s all rightly so and I think that even the adults that are dragged in will be happily surprised at the fun and adventure the film provides. Read more…
