“Fury” War is Hell (Film Review)

FURY poster

 

 

Review by John Delia

Showing the violence, guts and destruction of WWII tank fighting, Fury punctuates the story with an explosive tale of death defying courage. Although fictional, the movie is based on the 2nd US Armored division and portrays extensive grisly combat using very realistic images. Explosive, gripping and pervasive the up close look is shattering and mind boggling. If you like war movies like Saving Private Ryan and Hamburger Hill, rush out to see this mind blowing war flick on the big screen. Read more…

“This is Where I Leave You” a Family on the Edge (Film Review)

Review by John Delia

Working with an extremely good cast This is Where I Leave You opens in theaters for an adult audience.  While the film does entertain, no doubt about it, it’s hard to get over the feeling that I’ve seen it before.  Not that the trailer gives it all away, but the film August: Osage County still sticks in my mind being one of my 2013 favorites.  However, although it’s very similar in the storyline, this film dishes out most of the animosity with a side of comedy and romance rather than a serious tone.  With adult couples missing in action from theaters due to a glut of action, adventure and crime thrillers, this dramedy should get their attention.

“Need for Speed” a Wild Ride on Blu-ray (Video Review)

NEED FOR SPEED boxart 1

 

Review by John Delia

Hot cars, hot women and hotheads cut loose in Need for Speed an action packed film that will make your head spin. It’s a little of Smokey and the Bandit, a measure of Fast and Furious and a lot of Cannonball Run, and that’s a good thing.  Much like those films, Need for Speed hooks its audience from the very beginning with exciting street racing, an interesting back story and embraceable characters.  Now on Blu-ray and DVD the movie plays well on your home TV, especially if it’s HD and Widescreen.  Slow down the action so you can see every detail or reverse to see what you may have missed.

“Lucy” A Non-stop Action-thriller (Film Review)

Review by John Delia

Out of nowhere comes Lucy a wild ride of mind over matter from Writer/Director Luc Besson. This cunning thriller opens with excitement and never stops the action to the very end. It’s my idea of a true Sci-Fi thriller that tantalizes your brain with possibilities beyond belief, and then takes you even further with the question, What If?

The film poses the following premise: “The average person uses 10% of their brain capacity. Imagine what you could do with 100%”. Read more…

“Sex Tape” an Over-the-top Comedy (Film Review)

SEXTAPE posterReview by John Delia

It’s a wild romp of love making in the newest hard R film Sex Tape.  The funny little comedy shows what can happen when you find yourself loosing track of a personal filming of a bedroom escapade.  Strictly for adults, the voyeuristic adventure is nicely directed and acted. If you do not blush easily, are not insulted by repeated offensive language, would like to get some pointers (now I just said that for effect) then grab your partner, girlfriends or a sex therapist and see Sex Tape.

“Whitey: US vs James Bulger” Most Wanted (Film Review)

WHITEY poster

 

Review by John Delia

Taken from over a decade of headlines, the taut documentary “Whitey:United States of America v. James J. Bulger” puts one of America’s top most wanted men and the FBI under the microscope. The film delves into one of Boston’s most iconic murderers and extortionists that held the city in terror. Not since the Boston strangler in the 1970’s has a man been most feared. This hard line news event puts the audience in judgment of the crimes and those who protected the criminal. Read more…

“Tammy” A Tale all out of Wack (Film Review)

TAMMY Poster1

Review by John Delia

Totally askew the new comedy with and written by Melissa McCarthy and directed by her husband Ben Falcone plays out more like a YouTube video than a major motion picture.  Called Tammy, the film puts together a number of McCarthy sight gags that fall flat, very unlike The Heat in which she shines.  Maybe her shtick requires some tweaking or she needs to stay away from writing her own script, as both endeavors failed here. Lacing the film with a bevy of familiar faces is the first clue that this movie’s on a dubious path with no light at the end of the tunnel. Using her past success to fuel interest in Tammy may get her a haul at the box-office, but her fans will suffer in the end. It’s a NO for me. Read more…
