“The Poison Rose” a Cunning Film Noir

May 23rd, 2019 No comments

 

 

 

Review by John Delia, Sr.

If you are familiar with the term Film-Noir, then you will like the movie The Poison Rose. The film follows the same formula as the classic Chinatown (1974) and even an older film that you may have heard of called The Maltise Falcon (1941). The three things they have in common are a private eye investigating, a beautiful woman and a murder. The Poison Rose many not be at the caliber of the other two, but it does keep you in suspense throughout, has an intriguing storyline and the acting isn’t half bad. Read more…

“All Is True” To Be or Not To Be

Review by John Delia, Sr.

The year is only one quarter gone and we have had several biography movies come to theaters. The film All Is True features a drama on the last three years of William Shakespeare and it’s good. The film follows the Bard as he closes family doors tackling the project of bringing his family together after a long absence. It’s as true as could be told with information available and stretched as if one of Shakespeare’s plays. Read more…

Review by John Delia, Sr.

Violence seems to be a bit prevalent in the movies these days with the likes of John Wick 3 being released last week and now the brutal Avengement takes the screen this weekend. Not as fast and furious as Wick, but this film has more brutality. Leaving nothing to the imagination, the movie starts and end with every possible vicious brawl that can place in an hour and a half screen time. Read more…

Review by John Delia

Writing a road trip movie these days is very tricky since most every subject, situation, and condition have been transferred by film to screens big and small. However, American Exit’s a drama that sneaks through the cracks and gives fans of the genre an interesting, although a bit mundane, ride to nowhere. Read more…

Review by John Delia

Kind of a cool movie, Life Like plays out well with a story that, although kind of déjà vu, gets compelling and a bit predictable. Even though, the fine acting in this nicely laid out Sci-fi thriller delivers an absorbing and persuasive film that’s sure to entertain. Read more…

Review by John Delia

A moving dramatic biography, The White Crow, opens this weekend and it’s not only a magnificent production, but a reminder of one of the most remarkable events in history. If you have heard of Rudolf Nureyev than you have a good idea of why he was a spark that helped to melt the cold war. If not then you are in for an enlightening of the extraordinary dancer’s challenging life. Read more…

Review by John Delia

An alluring period piece, the biography/drama The Chaperone makes for good viewing for its target audience females 35 plus. It’s just a snippet on the seductive actress Louise Brooks with the real story going to her companion Norma Carlisle. The film has some of the best cinematography I’ve seen in a drama in recent past and combined with perfect retro costume, sets, locations and make-up the film’s a winner. Read more…

A heart pounding experience, the film Hotel Mumbai stays with you well after you leave the theater.

Before you know it you will be enveloped in the lives of people as they try to flee and hide from the gunmen. It’s a frightening experience, but one that’s a must see as the reality of it all can have easily been anywhere in the world. Read more…
