Review by John M. Delia, Jr

Visually amazing and thrilling, the movie The Great Wall certainly has the best effects and story thus far in 2017. Even though most of the film makes the use of a massive amount of CGI, that’s not a bad thing here as the production certainly warrants it. If you are a fan of high impact movies like World War Z, then this film should be on your list to see this weekend. Read more…

The drama A Monster Calls has a story that becomes magical as it works on your heartstrings. Entering the mind of a young boy we explore his feelings, fears and desperate attempt to save his mom.

Review by John Delia 

Nicely made the film Pete’s Dragon has reached home video. Now in Blu-ray/DVD and combo the film has a modern twist that should mesmerize the youngest of tykes that like exciting and family oriented films. Since it does have a quite unsettling beginning my advice to parents, run it ahead a bit for 5 and under until you are okay with what you are watching. It settles into a very adventurous fantasy with Elliot the Dragon and the orphaned Pete. Read more…

Review by John Delia, Jr.

Many years before Harry Potter’s birth there was another time where turmoil ran the wizard world. Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is an interesting prequel to the Harry Potter series as it dives in deeper to the historical part of the JK Rowling magical franchise. Based on a book that appeared in one of the earlier Harry Potter stories, JK Rowling explores adventurously into her wizardry realm. Read more…

Review by John Delia

Although it is about Pete and Elliot the dragon, Pete’s Dragon is a far cry from the live action and animated musical that we loved and filled our dreams as children. This Pete’s Dragon has a modern twist that sets even PG viewers on the edge of their seats. From the opening scary car crash involving Pete’s parents, to the hostile way they have to capture Elliot the dragon, the film spans a mystery, adventure and fantasy that both endears and shocks.

Review by John Delia

While I’m not a gamer and have never played the game associated with the movie Warcraft, I am a huge fan of the trilogies Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit. So much so that I’ve had an empty feeling only filled with replays of the Blu-ray collection of the Rings and Hobbits. Then up pops Warcraft filled with orcs and dwarfs and humans battling it out on the IMAX screen. Not a complete substitute, but an impressive one that beyond gamers, those that love middle earth should enjoy the story, acting and battles galore. Read more…

But, let’s stick with the review of this weekend’s savers of mankind.
