“Babylon” Dealing with Discrimantion

March 7th, 2019 No comments

 

 

 

Review by John Delia

Interesting and compelling in an odd way, the movie Babylon returns to the screen after being ignored for over 40 years. The film has a dark and disturbing aura and to be truthful it’s not for everyone. The film may be a bit difficult to watch as the Jamaican/London brogue is hard to keep up with, but the message runs clear throughout. The film is for those who would like a true experience as to what the 70’s South London was like. You may be astonished. Read more…

“A Star Is Born” written review & Trailer

Review by John Delia

Enjoyable and compelling, the movie A Star is Born fills the screen with song and story. It’s like being in the front row of a concert, but with the feel you are part of the drama and romance as well. It’s a kick-off to the Oscars and the Golden Globes and those films before and later to be released will have an uphill climb to surpass what you’ll see in this film. If you can find a movie theater in your city that has Dolby Cinema (Dolby Atmos) you will not regret the up-charge for the special feeling you will get from A Star is Born. Bring tissues as it’s both inspiring and heartbreaking. Read more…

“Dead Envy” a Musical Horror Story

Review by John Delia

This low budget movie Dead Envy has a very good soundtrack, able acting, and novice directing, but in all it’s the kind of film I can support. Being a one-man-band Harley Di Nardo doesn’t quit with his weird story that starts out with a hopeful singer trying to make it back into the limelight. What saves the film from dropping below average is the production value and the music that should be a welcome breath of fresh air for Classic Rockers. Read more…

“Juliet, Naked” A Sweet Film

August 31st, 2018 No comments

 

Review by John Delia, Sr.

A work of art and a story about music that fills the void between dreams and reality, the movie Juliet, Naked opens in Florida this weekend. Nicely written for the screen from a novel by Nick Hornby, the movie takes a comedic look at a weird turn of events. It’s a heartfelt story that punctuates the screen with excellent acting and direction. It’s the perfect movie for couples who would like to do a dinner and film as it will keep you talking hours after you have left the theater. And if you are fans of late 80”s and early 90”s Alternative Rock music it’s a big plus. Read more…
