Review by John M. Delia, Jr.

Based on the original screen play of 1964, its sequel continues with the same style, but goes beyond the animation, imagination, and magical wonders that these characters provide. It continues where we left off back in the day and goes even further into the character’s lives with an amazing musical adventure. 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…

“The House with a Clock in Its Walls” Mysterious

Review by John Delia

Children’s fairy tales have taken a new drift with the film The House with a Clock in Its Walls. Packed with exciting action adventure the movie, based on the book by John Bellairs, envisions the story with an incredible amount of CGI. You could almost call the film Animated, but that’s a good thing here as things go bump in the night, magic forms the basis, and solving the mystery becomes the prominent focus for older youngsters.

Review by John Delia, Sr.

One of my favorites as a kid and one that remains exciting and fun for youngsters, Peter Pan has been admitted to the Walt Disney Signature Collection.

“The Last Jedi” Takes Aim for Home Video

Review combined content by John Delia, Sr and John M. Delia, Jr.

Add another sequel of Star Wars to you library as “The Last Jedi” has been released in several formats for home viewing. The new adventure takes its audience further into the future where we find ageing Luke Skywalker and the development of characters from “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” including Daisy Ridley’s Ray and Oscar Isaac’s Poe. The film not only brings you up to date on Skywalker, but introduces parts of the galaxy that will probably be used in future saga’s. Although this is a much needed link, you will not find it as powerful as “The Force Awakens.” Read more…

Review by John Delia, Sr.

Opening this weekend, the long awaited sequel of one of the most creative classics of all time, Blade Runner 2049. The film follows the original some 30 years later where the people left on Earth are still trying to survive the social decay and authoritarian abuse. The movie has excellent direction by Oscar-nominated director Denis Villeneuve, amazing cinematography and a nicely connected storyline. The nearly 2 hour film may feel long, but true fans of Blade Runner will think it’s not enough. Read more…
