“The Lighthouse” A Blistering Psychological Drama

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…

“Maleficent: Mistress of Evil” See it in IMAX

Review by John Delia

A Trojan horse of a movie, Maleficent: Mistress of Evil brings a powerhouse of Disney magic that will astound and delight everyone. Filled with so many characters that you will want to either see it again on the big screen or get it on home video so you can freeze frame to see every one of the munchkins close up. The direction is incredible keeping the main actors in character in the thick of things with all that’s going around them. And as far as the cinematography goes, it’s a wow. And although it has a lot of adventurous action sequences, this sequel doesn’t get as dark as the first one. Read more…

“Avengers: Endgame” the Retaliation Begins

Review by John Delia

As the final chapter concludes, it’s good bye to the superhero battalion and one of their masterful powerhouses. Now, I do know this in mind and heart, that the Marvel live action characters were extremely good as a team and on their own. While we THINK they will never work together in the future, let’s not forget that the actors who portrayed them may get bored sitting around for another role to play and then what? There are so many other baddies out there in space, even Captain Marvel states that on film. So my guess is look for some single Marvel character films, before the screams for an assembly are so loud that the studio will cave-in to another Avengers. Read more…

“Dumbo” Flies onto Blu-ray

Review by John Delia, Sr.

Walt Disney’s Dumbo, an animated hit that was released in 1941, got its live action screen debut this year on the big screen nearly 78 years later and it’s a winner. Now on Blu-ray and other media for the first time, the film brings all the adventure into your living room. Still with a good measure of CGI, Dumbo tells the same adventurous story, but with some new twists. The message plays out as clear as the original film showing that everyone may not be perfect, but has a place in the world. Read more…
