The Nice Guys (Film Review & Red Band Trailer)

NICE GUYS poster

 

 

 

 

Review by John Delia

The madcap adventure The Nice Guys opens this weekend and it’s a doozy. The cast makes the film work with Russell Crowe and Ryan Gosling in the leads and a feisty 13-year-old Angourie Rice backing them up. It’s a lot of fun with this throwback to 1979 that has the feel of a Chinatown, but with a lot of comedy. Actually more like Lethal Weapon, because the writer and director Shane Black scripted that series featuring two buddy cops getting into the same kind of awkward and dangerous situations. Read more…

Review by John Delia

A bold time capsule of Ernest Hemingway’s life in Cuba gets revealed through the eyes of a reporter who lived it in the film Papa Hemingway in Cuba. Richly shot in the estranged county, the movie delves into the Pulitzer and Nobel Prize winning writer’s intimate lifestyle on the island in the 1950’s. Taught, daring and an eye opener the fine cast does a terrific job of character portrayal under the able direction of Bob Yari from an autobiographical script written by Denne Bart Petitclerc.

Review by John Delia

Fear and terror come into the lives of a punk rock band in Green Room, a gripping film with a sure fire plot for suspense lovers. The intense plot reminds me of the movie Hostel where three trapped travelers have to find a way out of a maze of horror. Maybe not as gory, but the violence tips the scale in Green Room. Read more…

the boss POSTER

 

 

 

 

Review by John Delia

Not a classic but a very funny and bawdy Melissa McCarthy turns up the heat in The Boss. She’s way over the top in this parody on making it to the highest level of the business ladder. Filled with a lot of sight gags, rude wisecracks and off color language it’s a wild and witty nonstop laugh-a-thon. McCarthy’s at her best much like her performance in Spy, but this time it’s taking down her adversary in the business world. Read more…

Review by John Delia

Introducing a first person perspective cinematography non-stop action film that’s thoroughly mind-blowing. Hardcore Henry gets so staggering that you may want to take along a barf bag or at least take a Dramamine at least an hour before entering the theater. The film movies along so fast and furious that I found myself holding onto the arm rests of my seat. Read more…

Hello, My Name Is Doris (Film Review and Trailer)

HELLO Poster

 

 

 

Review by John Delia

After a long absence from the leading role, Sally Field returns to the big screen and it’s her film from opening line one to the logical ending. And what a performance by Field. Never losing her sweet cool, she shines in Hello, My Name is Doris, a romantic comedy with a little drama thrown in for good measure. It may get a little superficial, maudlin and bizarre, but that’s what makes the film the perfect couple’s night out. Ladies, it’s only a one tissue movie, but bring another for back-up. Read more…

Touched With Fire (Film Review and Trailer))

Review by John Delia

“Bipolar Disorder: any of several psychological disorders of mood characterized usually by alternating episodes of depression and mania —called also manic depression, manic-depressive illness” Merriam-Webster Dictionary

It’s an odd way to start out a film review with a dictionary definition, but apropos with the movie Touched With Fire, a drama dealing with the psychological problem that alters the life of two poets. Written and director by Paul Dalio and taken from true experiences, gives this production a keener perspective of the lives he portrays on the screen. Heartfelt and heartbreaking the movie provides the audience with the realism of the troubles that go with bipolar disorder. Read more…

Dough (Foreign Film Review & Trailer)

Review by John Delia

The fun film Dough opens in the United States wide and it’s far fetched about being half baked. But, Dough is also about dealing with prejudice and finding value within yourself. If you can overlook the fact that using marijuana in London does have consequences no matter what the screenplay shows you, then everyone should accept a little fantasy when it comes to filmmaking. The acting and directing in Dough is very good with fine cinematography and sets.

THE CLUB poster

 

 

 

Review by John Delia

Presenting a look at the negative aspect of Catholic Church leaders and their wrongdoings, The Club delves into a fictional story of a sanctuary where Catholic priests are commanded to stay in isolation from public contact. The film exemplifies and denigrates the men who were found at fault involving sexual issues in their parishes. The Club paints a negative picture of the priests and also shows the severity for what they are responsible. Read more…

Review by John Delia

SDEAD postertraight from the pages of Marvel Comics comes Deadpool one of the most devilish characters in the family. But it’s not the first time you were introduced to the character. Although a quick one, we first see the cool “cynical superhero” in the film X-Men Origins: Wolverine, but not like audiences will see this vengeance filled man in the film Deadpool. Here he wants to get even no matter who stands in his way. Filled with action from start to finish, this super “hero” gets so intense the film conjures up an R rating. Read more…
