Review by John M. Delia, Jr.

Our world is made up of good and evil. Most of us try and live a good life and treat others respectfully. On the other hand there always seems to be some sort of evil force that pulls us to the seven deadly sins; Lust, Gluttony, Greed, Sloth, Wrath, Envy, and Pride. What if there is or were humans with super abilities that kept these evil sins away from all of us? Read more…

Review by John Delia, Sr. and 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. Mary Poppins Returns is perfect for families and those who remember seeing the film when they were young. Now available on Blu-ray, DVD, 4K and Ultra Blu-ray. 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…

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.
