The very dramatic and touching film Breathe delves into one of the most debilitating diseases of the past century bringing back memories of that awful time in history.

Review by John Delia, Sr.

The true story of Eric LeMarque, called 6 Below: Miracle on the Mountain, opens this weekend and it’s more than the average survival film. Very compelling and with a timely message, the movie depicts a breath taking and breathless adventure of endurance and courage. Although the setting may be similar to the recent survival film The Mountains Between Us, this factual story makes that one look like a fairy tale. Read more…

Review by John Delia, Sr.

Those interested in the sexual revolution of males in the 1970’s, may want to check out the biographical film Tom of Finland. The famous graphic artist used his drawings to express his feelings for men and their enactment of physical contact. It may be a dark horse for awards consideration and “pushes the envelope” with its gay sexual edge. Read more…

Review By John Delia, Sr.

This interesting biography takes you back to days when the going was tough and families were economizing their lives. It’s a parody of even today’s society of lost jobs and stretching income that seems to invade every generation. But, The Glass Castle shows how one family survived life’s up and downs in this true story based on Jeannette Walls’s bestseller book. The film’s cast proves to be the main winner here with their tour de force performances. Read more…

Review by John M. Delia, Jr.

I’ve watched many biographies, but not quite as compelling and heartfelt as Queen of Katwe. The film takes you into the heart of the story right away then works it charm throughout. Tugging at your heartstrings at times, the fine acting makes the story work right down to the inspirational ending. Read more…

Review by John Delia

Cinematically brilliant, the movie Hacksaw Ridge grabs you by the collar and slaps you upside your head with a true story of our fearless military and a hero that earned the respect of his country. It’s a reminder why we are free and why all our American soldiers can hold their head high for battles fought in every conflict. Sometimes it takes the insight of a good film like this to bring us back to reality. Read more…

Written Review by John Delia

There have been several real life events that Hollywood has brought to the screen and the movie Sully happens to be one of the most amazing. Seven years ago US Airways flight 1579 had to ditch in the Hudson River and TV had a heyday with the crash and rescue of all 155 passengers on board. Even more recent was the replay of the documentary Hudson Plane Crash: What Really Happened on American Heroes Channel cable TV that was very poignant with actual passengers and crew members giving interviews.  Heroism personified.
