“THE SQUARE” (Written Review & Trailer)

Review by John Delia, Sr.

The dark comedy The Square delivers a message not unfamiliar considering today’s upheaval involving the brotherhood of man. In the Ruben Ostlund’s film, that takes place in Sweden, a statement is made to the meaning of  “The Square” an exhibit at a museum. It states simply “The Square is a sanctuary of trust and caring. Within its boundaries we all share equal rights and obligations.” So sets the tone for this bizarre look into society’s relationships with each other and the division of wealth that fuels the fire.

Review By John Delia, Sr.

The British are known for their dry humor and two good examples are the stars of The Trip to Spain. Its number three in a series of road trips across European countries and Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon set out to test the food among the locals while creating a gorgeous travelogue of Spain’s amazing wealth of historical sights.

Review by John Delia, Sr.

Totally hilarious The Hitman’s Bodyguard turns into a wild ride early on in this action comedy “odd couple” movie. The script may give you a bit of déjà vu, but it’s well worth the laughs and thrills. Certainly a nice cap to a “dinner and a movie”, as Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson are a hoot together.

“LUCKY LOGAN” (Written Review & Trailer)

Review by John Delia, Sr

Robbing a bank is hard enough, but what Logan Lucky features is a whole new ballgame on robbery. The film goes for high stakes at a motor speedway and even though it’s fiction, it’s a lot of fun fantasizing on the plan and the getaway. The treat here is not Channing Tatum as a redneck bank robber, but Daniel Craig as an accomplice to the whole event. Craig digs down deep and comes up with an American Southern drawl that’s convincing, yet comical knowing he was “James Bond” shaken not stirred. Read more…

Review by John Delia, Sr.

In a very funny display of French comedy, the movie Lost in Paris shines with a delightful story of unavoidable romance. The film is drenched in Marcel Marceau’s mime comedy, Jerry Lewis’s wit and a bit of Charlie Chaplin collectively performed by a delightful cast. Read more…
