“Domino” Out for Blood

Review by John Delia Sr

If you are in the mood for a fast moving story that has a lot of action, then Domino should be a good choice. Now it’s the story that really makes it worth the theatrical experience, but even though it has all the elements of an action thriller, the background soundtrack takes a good measure of the energy out of the film.

“Trial by Fire” Based on a True Story

Review by John Delia

Based on an article that ran in “The New Yorker” and the letters from an inmate on Texas’s death row, the film Trial by Fire opens this weekend in wide release. Based on a true story, the film has an edge to it that makes a case against the death penalty. While it’s a narrative and a good production, the subject of the film Cameron Todd Willingham, who denied his guilt of intentionally killing his three toddlers, has been debated in a documentary of the same title that aired in 2010 on PBS’s “Frontline”.

“Half Magic” Conjuring up Love

Review by John Delia, Sr.

When it comes to women’s sexual empowerment over the years they certainly have the edge as shown in the movie Half Magic. In fact the opening minutes of this very funny romantic comedy even “outs” the P word for vagina. Much like the docudrama Free the Nipple in which the film makes female nudity popular, this film makes the P word an accepted addition to our vocabulary, well maybe. The movie “outs” the word as an empowerment for women. What’s next, using the C word for Penis? Oh, yeah that word’s used by the ladies several times in Half Magic. Read more…

Review by John Delia, Sr.

A comedy that makes a statement about over population, the film Downsizing takes a look at “what if we could make our planet last longer?” The fun science fiction movie take a swipe at global warming by shrinking thousands of people that would use less of everything, including the packing in which it all comes. Nicely acted, the plot even has a special love story involving and unintended romance. Read more…

Review by John Delia, Sr.

Turning a perfect trip into a life or death adventure, 4 men travel on a Bolivian excursion in the film Jungle. Where there was beauty comes a massive land of treacherous mountains, overgrown forest and wildlife looking for a meal, it’s that kind of journey. The true story stars Daniel Radcliff in the lead role and is directed by Greg McLean who brought Wolf Creek to the screen. Read more…

Review by John Delia, Sr.

Wild, engaging and sometimes disturbing, yet heartfelt, the film Like Crazy (La Pazza Gioia) opens in theaters this weekend. The story plays out like a One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest with a little bit of Thelma and Louise. The acting in the film by the whole cast is exceptionally good and the direction pinpoint sharp. If you would like a little laughter in your evening mixed with a lot of heart, then check out Like Crazy. Read more…

“MAGIC MIKE” (Film Review and Trailer)

Review by John Delia

Brawny, Bold and bawdy the movie Magic Mike XXL (I guess they didn’t use a third X instead of an L because it doesn’t go that far) struts and dances its way across the screen at the delight of a female audience. The story gets sluggish, silly and wacky, but I’m positive not a woman in the theater will notice. Not much on plot, the road trip to Myrtle Beach does have its moments at stops along the way. There the film bangs out tunes while muscle bound men raise hell tearing their T-shirts and dropping their drawers in places like Tampa, Jacksonville, Savanna and Charleston. Read more…

“DOPE” (REVIEW & TRAILER)

Review by John Delia

Dope is “dope”; a fast moving comedy crime drama that takes you into the hood of LA and treats you to a story of being in the wrong place at the wrong time. The nicely directed characters, equally good acting and satisfactory camera work combines indie magic with an exciting script. The movie won the audience award at Sundance and will delight moviegoers across the US. Other than a few flaws in production value you wouldn’t know the movie was made with a low budget. Read more…

“Queen and Country” Romance and Dignity (Indie Film Review & Trailer)

QUEEN AND COUNTRY poster

 

 

Review by John Delia

Spooling out his final film Writer/Director John Boorman makes it a sequel and a good one at that. His Queen and Country being released in the United States takes his characters into the 1950’s as a follow up to Hope and Glory set during WWII. He works his magic one more time with interesting characters, some comedy, military boot camp drama and a whole lot of romance. Beautifully filmed, it’s a masterpiece of a period gone by that saw England transfer the crown to Elizabeth II and turn boys into men. Read more…
