“Gloria Bell” Shows Her Wild Side

March 21st, 2019 No comments

 

 

 

 

Review by John Delia

It’s Julianne Moore at her best showing the great performer she is in a romantic comedy with heartbreak. As Gloria Bell she makes the lead role compelling and full of life giving her all and even more. It’s perfect for a date night so grab your best guy or gal and check it out. And it has an explosion of a sound track that includes “Gloria” by Laura Branigan and “Total Eclipse of the Heart” by Bonnie Tyler. Read more…

“Mary Poppins Returns” with a New Adventure

Review by John Delia, Sr. and John M. Delia, Jr.

Based on the original screen play of 1964, its sequel continues with the same style, but goes beyond the animation, imagination, and magical wonders that these characters provide. It continues where we left off back in the day and goes even further into the character’s lives with an amazing musical adventure. Mary Poppins Returns is perfect for families and those who remember seeing the film when they were young. Now available on Blu-ray, DVD, 4K and Ultra Blu-ray. Read more…

Review by John Delia

A very likable movie, Green Book not only took the Golden Globe Awards for Best Picture and Best Supporting Actor, but the Oscar as well. Now on 4K, Ultra Blu-ray, Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD, the movie gives its best theatrical performance in your home. I’m not shocked that the film won top honors as the story certainly is deserving, direction impeccable and stellar acting in the delivery of the characters to the screen. Read more…

“Ralph Breaks the Internet” Now on Blu-ray

Review by John Delia

About six years ago Disney Studios released a powerful new character from a video game and Wreck It Ralph was born into Animation forever. Wow, that sounds like an introduction to a biography of the building wrecker who became a hero to another video game star Vanellope. She’s the car racing icon of the game “Sugar Rush”. I just thought it would be a good way to begin my review on Ralph’s newest film Ralph Breaks the Internet, a fun animated movie for the whole family now on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD. Read more…

“Stan & Ollie” Memorable and Heartfelt

Review by John Delia

Back in the day when vaudeville was where most of the comic’s started out, two men rose up to be the funniest duo in the movie business. Billed as Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy, they went on to make over a 180 short films and about two dozen full features. Most of their films were used as an add-on for a drama, western and even some comedies. Read more…

“Instant Family” Fun and Heartfelt

Review by John Delia

Nicely acted with creative directing, but the bottom line is…its one man’s reality pressing for a need to spread the word. For the fantasy of it all however, the comedy gets high pitched, the mind has a chance to think and the heart gets a good massage. Do I recommend Instant Family? Absolutely, it’s brilliant!

“The Grinch” Teen View

Review by Ian Delia

The amazing and heart touching story “The Grinch” or known as “The Grinch Who Stole Christmas” was and is a wonderful and timeless story written by Dr. Seuss. If you watch basically any family channel in the prime time of the year, Christmas, you may have seen the original story of the Grinch and there have been 2 movies of the classic Grinch. But it’s great to relive story with a heartwarming plot on the big screen with new voices and animation. Read more…

“The Old Man & The Gun” Fascinating & Revealing

Review by John Delia

Fascinating and revealing the scriptwriters of The Old Man & the Gun take a chance on a true story, but it’s nothing more than a showcase rather than a compelling feature film. There have been quite a few films in the last decade that create vehicles offering audiences a chance to see a famous star in their twilight, light up the screen. While many have been used as support characters, this one serves as Robert Redford’s homage for an amazing contribution to the movie industry. Read more…
