“Birds of Prey” A Kickass Fan Feast

February 7th, 2020 No comments

 

 

 

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…

“NATION’S FIRE” An Action Thriller

January 20th, 2020 No comments

 

Review by John Delia

The indie Nation’s Fire is not half bad considering what’s playing on the crowded cable systems that are getting very competitive for the VOD market. But, what pushes this film over the competition is the recklessness of the plot, the acting and a director who’s knee deep in the Genre. Working with some notables like Bruce Dern, Gil Bellows, Lou Ferrigno Jr., Kristen Renton and the up and coming Krista Grotte who steals the show, Thomas J. Churchill brings a good offering. The film plays out to an older crowd that likes high powered action and not a lot of superfluous dialogue. But, most anyone from 21 to 60 should enjoy all the chaos and revenge. The production crew gets the job done in spite of the noticeable low budget. Read more…

Review by John Delia

A very inspirational true story the movie Miss Virginia takes you into inner-city Washington D.C. and one woman’s determination to get her son an education. The heartfelt and emotional story was the impetus for better education through an incentive program that changed the lives of thousands of children. The acting is exceptional and direction spot on delivering enjoyable entertainment with some tears of joy. Read more…

“Capernaum” Oscar Nominated

Review by John Delia

A good choice as one of the five nominated films  for an Academy Award for Best Foreign Film, Capernaum, comes to theaters this Friday well before Oscar night. It’s definitely worthy of a win, but the competition is very stiff with other titles having already run the gamut for a Golden Globe. But, this film is very special with a lot of heart and involves the strife the middle-east has been experiencing. Released in the USA in its native language of Arabic with some Amharic and other mid-east dialects, the movie depicts the determination, defiance and struggle of one boy who represents a part of the downtrodden lifestyle in a challenging nation.

“White Boy Rick” a True Story

Review by John Delia

Kind of a heart breaker, yet one can’t help thinking that it’s also self-deprecating. The movie White Boy Rick puts on a tour de force display of acting and directing in this unusual crime drama. Showing at least three sides to the true story, Director Yann Demange spreads the dialogue around involving family, gangs and the law. If it were a lesson to be learned, it would have been a welcomed script, but it’s not. Read more…

“The First Purge” Testing Anger Management

Review by John Delia

Continuing with their franchise, the producers of The Purge bring you the beginning of the free to kill program with The First Purge. There’s no reason given for needing to show how it all started, because if you have seen any of the other three, the idea is mentioned offhandedly in each one. In this episode the mayhem, savagery and killing continue at a fast pace until the siren gets blown after 12 hours. Read more…

Review by John Delia

This wild and wacky documentary on the life of author Laura Albert, Author: The JT LeRoy Story, gets complicated, showy, impudent and irreverent and that just the first half. But, that’s the beauty of this offbeat, nonsensical biography told by Laura Albert herself. Unless you travel in book writing circles, you may not know the celebrity of the writer who earned her fame using multiple impostors and through a stroke of luck. In fact, she’s even accused of a mental multiple personality disorder in her quest to pull off one of the biggest hoax’s in the literary business. Read more…

Review by John Delia

Sex, drugs and 1970’s San Francisco, what more do you need to tell a story about a coming of age teenager? Fortunately there’s enough to make the movie The Diary of a Teenage Girl, a wild and wacky film that leaves nothing to the imagination. Easy to burst testosterone levels of male teens, this feature should sell a lot of tickets to any PG-13 rated film so they can pull off an auditorium shuffle.  Read more…

Review by John Delia

Emotional, disturbing and astounding the film Straight Outta Compton takes its audience on a journey from ghetto to greatness. The biographical film tells all showing how five creative music artists broke away from a life of crime or degradation to a career that allowed them to speak their piece. Told and created by the guys who lived it, the film puts a stamp on the beginning of the rap era that took a stand against social intolerance by raising their voices in the best way they knew how.
