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…

Review by John Delia

Very daunting and sinister the movie Mojave takes you on a trip to the dessert where everything goes wrong. Well-acted by Oscar Isaac and Garrett Hedlund their performances get deliriously evil as their characters develop. If you like a crafty script filled with suspense and intrigue, then this quirky film is for you. Read more…

Review by John Delia

Attack, survival, revenge and retribution, The Revenant, involves a true story of one man’s fight in the wilderness and the brutal battles he faces. Selected in my top five films of the 2015, this action thriller has the four qualifiers of an excellent production; fine direction, compelling storyline, excellent acting and amazing cinematography that’s second to none. From the opening minute to its gut wrenching finish, the fast paced two and a half hour film flies by with a spellbinding attraction that won’t let go way after you leave the theater. Read more…

Review by John Delia

Fighting for Women’s voting rights, the film Suffragette has all the trappings for an Oscar run. Well directed, the movie tells the story from the angle of a new recruit entering the fray at the beginning of violent protesting that helped to turn the tide slightly in favor of the movement. However, it’s the sterling acting that sets Suffragette apart from the rest of the pack in the Oscar race for one of the ten spots. Read more…

Review by John Delia

One of the best actors in the business today Michael Fassbender will have you spellbound as he brings one of the most difficult characters to the screen, Steve Jobs. You can feel the penetrating persistence in his delivery of the massive dialogue that’s contained in the script by Alan Sorkin (The Social Network). He’s the whole show and whether you like the man he portrays or not, go see it for Fassbender’s performance. Read more…

Review By John Delia

Opening in theaters this weekend is the daring and courageous true story of a young boy who out foxed the Germans during WWII Poland for four years. The film digs deep into the heart of the young man who wouldn’t give up even in the face of death. If you see one foreign film this year, make it be Run Boy Run, it will stay with long after you have left the theater. Not enough can be said of the atrocities that took place in Europe during the most diabolical era of mankind that defined genocide and depicted man’s inhumanity to man. Read more…

Sleeping with Other People (Film Review and Trailer)

Review by John Delia

Opening this weekend is a romantic comedy with a twist called Sleeping with Other People. The film has a big cast of notable actors and a director/writer who knows how to dish out romance from more than one perspective. The film should attract couples and females, but beware of the message as it may tantalize and titillate those seductive areas of your psyche. Nevertheless it’s a fun film and doesn’t get dull.

Pawn Sacrifice (Film Review & Trailer)

Review by John Delia

One of the tensest films this year Pawn Sacrifice takes the prize for egoism, stare downs, insanity and arrogance. Although the acting in the film far outweighs any drama I’ve seen this year, it’s really not enough reason to see the biography of a man who single handedly faced off against a superpower using the game of chess.  Only if you have an IQ of over 121 would you even care how the game is played or what move wins, the filmmakers want you to feel the pressure and the madness of it all. It’s not all about the game you see, but the man and his quest. Read more…

Review by John Delia

Captivating and compelling the film The New Girlfriend opens this weekend at select theaters around the nation. Filled with surprises that reveal an alternate lifestyle the movie can be as much challenging as it is acceptable reality. Although it may be a bit clichéd and predictable, it still entertains with a story that’s both titillating and provocative. Read more…

Review by John Delia

A very violent and disturbing true story Black Mass takes you into the world of one of Boston’s infamous criminals James “Whitey” Bulger. Played out superbly by Johnny Depp as Bulger and for his performance alone this film should not be missed. Well-acted by a superior support cast and directed by Scott Cooper the movie should be considered for the short list of Oscar contenders. While the story gets very brutal and alarming, there’s no other way to tell it. Read more…
