Review by John Delia

Actually a lot better than Pearl Harbor and the first time the movie Midway was produced, this version by Roland Emmerich is sharp, compelling and an edge of your seat thriller. Even if you are not a fan of war movies, the film does have a lot of patriotic courage, determination and historical significance that honor’s our fallen heroes. The film pulls no punches as it plays out showing the choices that were made both good and bad, both in the heat of battle on the ships at sea and by aircraft pilots. Read more…

“Pain & Glory” Endearing and Touching

November 5th, 2019 No comments




Review by John Delia

Taking a lot of liberties while giving a cinematic interpretation of a time in his life, Pedro Almodovar movie Pain & Glory is as expressive as Roma. His directorial and screenwriting is by far some of the best I’ve seen by the famous director and yes there’s a spark of surprise in this one as in every one of his films. Taking extra liberties he even shocks his audience at one point. That said, if you are a fan of Almodovar’s films than you will not want to miss the amazing performances that bring the man’s film to the big screen. Read more…

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…

Gripping, engaging, wicked and possessed the move The Lighthouse is one of the odds on favorites for an Oscar.

Review by John Delia

It may be similar to other Sci-fi films of its kind, but Gemini Man tips the scale with action and storyline. The CGI is incredible and the re-aging of Will Smith amazing in this assassin vs clone movie that will knock your socks off. Oh and the answer is yes, Will Smith plays both parts with seamless detail. Read more…

“Joker” Evil is as Evil Does

October 4th, 2019 No comments




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…
