“THE NIGHT CLERK” Murder with a Twist

February 18th, 2020 No comments

 

 

 

 

Review by John Delia

The drama The Night Clerk takes aim at the box-office with a twisted tale that should have audiences engrossed from the very start to its surprise finale. While all the clues are laid out for you before midpoint, the writer/director holds back just enough in this mystery to make the movie a winner. Acting is sharp and pin point, the direction strong and impeccable, and the credible protagonist in the plot makes for the perfect character. Read more…

“Birds of Prey” A Kickass Fan Feast

Review by John Delia

One of the best films in recent past for action fans, Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) comes to the screen with a kickass movie that should please the pulp fiction fan base. It’s a follow up to DC Comics’ Suicide Squad for one of their characters, Harley Quinn, and the start of a probable spinoff series. In this episode it explains Harley Quinn’s past and her failing love life that had fallen apart when Joker decided to part ways. But, you can’t keep this wild DC Comic character down as you’ll find out in Birds of Prey. Read more…

“TRAUMA CENTER” Action Thrills

Review by John Delia

Not bad, but not great the Crime action thriller Trauma Center comes to Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD. It starts out slow, but then takes you on a ride from alleys to the trauma center of a local hospital where most of the film takes place. If you are into crime flicks that draw out the suspense to the very end, than this one should do the trick. Read more…

“A SERIAL KILLER’S GUIDE TO LIFE” now on Digital HD

Review by John Delia

Quirky and twisted, A Serial Killer’s Guide to Life is one movie that will keep you wincing throughout the 81 minutes of mindboggling carnage. Once it gets started the movie becomes a roller coaster ride of death that’s not stopping to look back. It’s a very dark comedy and the actors are excellent at depicting the insanity as it rolls along to a surprise ending. Did I say the film is sadistic? The film is billed as another Thelma and Louise, but those two ladies in that movie were girl scouts compared to Lou and Valerie in A Serial Killer’s Guide to Life. Read more…

“Motherless Brooklyn” Outstanding Acting and Direction

Review By John M. Delia Jr.

During the 1950’s, being a private investigator wasn’t always a safe and sure way to make a living. But it was a popular way to make some cash for returning soldiers or ex-police officers. During these times things were beginning to modernize and the world was becoming more dependent on advancement in the skyline. With these changes corruption and deceit became more evident and the need for private investigators became more popular. Read more…

“Joker” Evil is as Evil Does

Review by John Delia

While other actors have come to the screen portraying the Joker in Batman movies, and they all have given excellent characters for the plot, the wait is over for one of the character’s most diabolical depictions ever. It’s equal to Heath Ledger’s reprehensible clown in The Dark Knight, but different. Enter the clown who scares, personifies, disrupts, enchants, and infuriates. Played by Joaquin Phoenix like no character he’s ever created in his career, it may be his door opener into the world of the DC Comics films. Read more…

“Skin” True and Tragic

Review by John Delia, Sr.

Shocking and disturbing, the movie Skin puts you into the thick of the White Supremacist revolution during the early 2000’s. But, this biography does have a happy ending and that’s not easy when it comes to one of the most uncontrollable underground hate groups in America. The filmmakers do a very good job of bringing the film to the screen with a lot of explosive action, extreme and gut wrenching at times. Read more…

“The Fall of the American Empire” Comedy Askew

June 27th, 2019 No comments

 

 

Review by John Delia

Quirky, predictable and somewhat inconceivable, combined with a script that’s two hours of French Canadian dialogue, The Fall of the American Empire’s a bit of a chore to watch. That said, the acting is quite good, the film production value gets good marks and the comedy does work as the movie progresses.

Pierre-Paul Daoust (Alexandre Landry) is an ordinary guy, but has the oddity of being cautious about everything. Unless a notable person has made a statement that will back up what others say to him, it’s not a truism. He’s even too careful about what he says to his longtime girlfriend Linda (Florence Longpré), especially about sex. Oh, he wants to have sex with her, but is afraid she will leave him if he asks. It’s the way everything goes in his life. Read more…
