“The Lighthouse” A Blistering Psychological Drama

October 23rd, 2019 No comments

 

 

 

 

Review by John Delia

Gripping, engaging, wicked and possessed the move The Lighthouse is one of the odds on favorites for an Oscar. The acting, directing and cinematography captivate the viewer with a story that so punishing you’ll leave the theater in a sweat. It’s one of those dramas that don’t come around too often and when they do they’re a must see. Bring your slicker and an umbrella as this film will blow you away. Read more…

Review by John Delia, Sr.

Spooky and very edgy the movie Hereditary should delight horror fans that are into the occult. Even though you may get a feeling of déjà vu from other films that have included supernatural incidents, the acting here keeps it sinister enough to carry the fan base. If you like sick and twisted films like Rosemary’s Baby and The Witch, this is your cauldron of tea. Read more…

“Chappaquiddick” the End of a Dynasty

Review by John Delia, Sr.

Bold and incredibly compelling the movie Chappaquiddick is a “tell all” with a lot of authority. Much like last year’s The Post, it tells its’ story pulling no punches, playing out the characters and holding nothing back. Although I’m familiar with the incident, much of the facts were clouded, squashed or were lost due to current events at the time. If you liked The Post, then here’s a film that will enlighten and make you cringe. Read more…

Review by John Delia, Sr.

Mind boggling, the film In the Fade takes you on a path to revenge that doesn’t let up till the final minute of the movie. With a stellar performance by Diane Kruger and fine direction by Fatih Akin the film stands out as one of the best foreign films of 2018. If you like compelling movies that touch the edgy side of the headlines, then this film will work for you. Read more…

“6 BELOW” (Written Review & Trailer)

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…

“A GHOST STORY” (Written Review & Trailer)

Review by guest writer Brent Lorentson

It’s difficult to be original and innovative when it comes to tackling a haunted house film. Ghost stories have been around for ages and told just about every way you can imagine. So what do you do to give the audience something they have never seen before? After coming back from directing Pete’s Dragon, writer/director David Lowery delivers a small intimate film that manages to take A Ghost Story and makes it something unique from all the rest. Though when I say unique, and when I say innovative, this may not be a positive for some. Read more…

Review by John Delia

My job is to see movies and give my opinion so my readers will know the good, bad and ugly before plunking down the dough to see them. After seeing Mad Max: Fury Road, I’m ready to see it again. This time I’m headed for an IMAX theater so I can get all the sounds and visuals of this action packed film up close. Call me a movie nut, but when it comes to films that go over the edge for their audience, I’m there! Read more…
