‘Glass’ A Remarkable Trilogy

By John M. Delia, Jr

What would the world be like if there were really super heroes? Their powers may not be so obvious for most to see. Like super human strength, amazing intelligence, and the ability to see the future. Would this be something we would all embrace? Remember if there is one special hero, there is always the opposite and that’s its villain. This third installment of the series will tie everything together. 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…

“Ben is Back” A Compelling Story

Review by John Delia

Very deep and disturbing, the movie Ben is Back takes you into the life of a boy who deals with his drug addiction with lies and deceit. Although it’s a work of fiction, it could easily be a true story in today’s addictive world. Excellent acting by the main characters and a script worthy of award, it’s a film you don’t want to miss. If you like a good compelling drama that presses on your heartstrings, this film’s perfect. Ladies, bring a few tissues. Read more…

“Widows” Just Short of a Masterpiece

Review by Gino Sassani

Steve McQueen has established himself as a rather talented director. 12 Years A Slave was one of the better films of 2013 and one of the few times I happened to agree with the Oscars’ choice for Best Picture. When he tackled the heist format I expected something unique, and I wasn’t at all disappointed. McQueen managed to put a clever spin on a tired genre and provide us with a superior and inspired cast. It wasn’t all completely his idea, of course. The film is based on a Canadian miniseries that goes back to the 1980’s. That doesn’t mean he hasn’t found a way to imprint the material with his own style and bold choices. There’s a lot to love about Widows, but I have pretty low expectations for this film at the box office. More on that later. Let’s get down to it, shall we? Read more…

Review by John M. Delia, Jr.

Another chapter in the World of Wizards starts to unfold the continuous evil that surrounds them all.  The fear the world they all know will break apart and endanger both the Magical as well as the Non-Magical will come to pass. Action needs to be taken to attempt to stop what their possible future entails. 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 Girl in the Spider’s Web” High Energy

Review by John Delia

If you have seen the American made trilogy of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, then you will be familiar with the characters in the fourth release called The Girl in the Spider’s Web. The actors may be different than in the previous three, but the names and their descriptions are the same. For newbies of the stories, they all take place in Sweden and the plots reach out into other countries as the crime drama plays out. It’s like watching Bourne Ultimatum with Jason Bourne, but with a women in the lead role. If you like high energy movies than this quick paced film is your Swedish cup of Filmjolk. Read more…

“Suspiria” Dancing with Evil

Review by John Delia

Weird and disturbing the movie Suspiria takes you into the realm of evil. Although it could have been a good film for horror fans, the film lags to extremes and movies so slow you may nod off from the droning music and repetitious modern ballet. When you do finally get to the terror, for horror fans it’s a good presentation of typical gore and extreme evil violence. Not for the squeamish or fearful the film does achieve points of cruel depravity, pernicious nudity and bone snapping body parts. Bring a pillow, you’ll be there for a while. Read more…
