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…

“Life Itself” Living Your Experiences

September 21st, 2018 No comments

 

Review by John M. Delia, Jr.

Our life experiences influence what we do in our future and what our parents experience could also influence how we are as well. And, in tragedy and death we experience large amounts of loss that could also transfer to our unborn offspring. Lastly, we experience many ups and downs throughout our lifetime and how we react to those, good or bad, experiences make up who we are and how strong our will is to survive. Keep moving along knowing that there will be good life experiences, even though you will always have many hurdles to overcome as we see in Life Itself. Read more…

“Dead Envy” a Musical Horror Story

Review by John Delia

This low budget movie Dead Envy has a very good soundtrack, able acting, and novice directing, but in all it’s the kind of film I can support. Being a one-man-band Harley Di Nardo doesn’t quit with his weird story that starts out with a hopeful singer trying to make it back into the limelight. What saves the film from dropping below average is the production value and the music that should be a welcome breath of fresh air for Classic Rockers. Read more…

“Siberia” Chills and Thrills

Review by John Delia

It may be listed as a crime thriller, but Siberia has a love story that glues the script together. The film takes you to the top of the world Russia where deals are made on diamonds and a lovely woman is stuck in a small town waiting for a man who can take her away. It’s a nice plot that intertwines a violent deal for the most precious of stones and a daring scheme that impacts it. Read more…

“American Animals” A Senseless Crime

Review by John Delia

It’s a true story and a very disturbing one based on the motive, senselessness and outcome of the crime it depicts. Set in Lexington, Kentucky the film could have been anywhere in the world, and the result has the distinct possibility of ending upside down. Depicted in the artists own paintings, the animals therein show as much random viciousness for their prey as the subjects in the movie American Animals. Excellent direction, acting and portrayal of the crime however, makes it a must see. The unique thing about the film is that you get to see all four of the real perpetrators of the crime intermittently throughout the movie. 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…

Get in Step With “Finding Your Feet”

Review by John Delia, Sr.

One of the most memorable films you’ll see this year, Finding Your Feet turns romance upside down and sideways. Targeted for couples and ladies the film not only entertains, but inspires those who have searched for love and had to get sidetracked to find it. Ladies, bring three Kleenex; one for the sad parts, one for the joyful scenes and one for the inspiring ending that will lead you to evaluating your own woes. Read more…

“Half Magic” Conjuring up Love

Review by John Delia, Sr.

When it comes to women’s sexual empowerment over the years they certainly have the edge as shown in the movie Half Magic. In fact the opening minutes of this very funny romantic comedy even “outs” the P word for vagina. Much like the docudrama Free the Nipple in which the film makes female nudity popular, this film makes the P word an accepted addition to our vocabulary, well maybe. The movie “outs” the word as an empowerment for women. What’s next, using the C word for Penis? Oh, yeah that word’s used by the ladies several times in Half Magic. 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…
