“COLOR OUT OF SPACE” Terror From the Skies

February 24th, 2020 No comments

 

 

 

Review by John Delia

A different kind of sci-fi thriller, the movie Color Out of Space is now available on DVD, Blu-ray, 4K UHD/BD and Digital HD. The film has some very good acting, direction and cinematography. The storyline is a bit unimaginative, but does entertain with a narrative that should provide some scares, thrills and a feeling of terror if it’s a dark rainy night and you are at home alone. Especially if you live in a secluded dark forest that has a long ominous road leading to your estate. Read more…

“GOALIE” Fast Action Biography

Review by John Delia

It’s the perfect time to release the movie Goalie, the powerful biography of hockey great Terry Sawchuk who dedicated his life to the sport only to let his personal life fade in his glory. With America in the midst of a tough hockey season, the film shows what the sport dishes out to the players that work on ice each night for their fans. As brutal in contact as the two as other sports football and basketball, this one provides the tension and focus that makes players winners. Read more…

Review by John Delia

A film like Beanpole does not come around that often, but when it does it’s a must see for film buffs and indie lovers who like to wrap their brains around an amazing film that challenges the mind. It’s outstanding and powerful! Set in Russia, the movie tells a haunting story of two women that have to come to grips with life after WWII. It’s the perfect movie that has excellent direction, awesome acting and a daunting storyline. It was Russia’s entry for the 2020 Oscars and chosen in their top 10. It is available at select theaters and soon on VOD and other media. Read more…

“SPY INTERVENTION” A Wacky Comedy

February 13th, 2020 No comments

 

 

Review by John Delia

Wacky spy comedies are fun, especially if they have an exciting plot with many surprises and an unexpected outcome. The movie Spy Intervention has a story that’s a bit different than the usual, it’s much like saving Queen Elizabeth (The Naked Gun) or stopping evil (Spy Hard) or even 2015’s Spy with Melissa McCarthy tracking down an arms dealer. Spy Intervention doesn’t have the star power to make it a blockbuster, but the actors try very hard to please. Not hilarious, but certainly very funny, the movie fills the void that has been absent of late. Read more…

“16 BARS” Music for Freedom

Review by John Delia

Finding a way to be free may seem easy for some, but those that lose their way find it very difficult to earn back their freedom. That’s the premise of the documentary 16 Bars. But even though they do make it out of the prisons that hold them, learning how to not return to incarceration helps to defeat recidivism. Looking into the prison life using an experimental idea, Todd “Speech” Thomas goes into the confines of Richmond Prison to offer some light at the end of the tunnel. Read more…

“THE HUNT FOR VLAD THE IMPALER” Action Adventure

February 4th, 2020 No comments

 

Review by John Delia

Bringing you back to the 15th Century with a historical action thriller, the movie The Hunt for Vlad the Impaler is now available on VOD, Blu-ray and DVD. The film has some good acting, direction and production value, especially the costuming and special effects. The filmmakers do explain the history a bit, but I have not fact checked it for the opening dialogue on the subject. Actually most of the audiences that will watch the film will be more attuned to the warring factions and the bloody battles. The film has been dubbed in English so it may throw you off a bit, but for the most part they use adequate voice overs that are equal to each of the characters persona. Get caught up in the story early and you will enjoy it as intended. Read more…

“Mon Mon Mon Monsters!” Ghoulish and Gagging

February 3rd, 2020 No comments

 

 

Review by John Delia

Disgusting and very violent the movie Mon Mon Mon Monsters! has a one of a kind plot that should have you cringing and retching, and those are the good parts. If you are a fan of horror that likes films that repulses more than it scares, then you can revel in this “monsterpiece” that comes out today on Blu-ray and DVD. When you do get a copy, slide the video into your player, step back away from the TV set, take a deep breath, make sure you have a barf bucket handy and press play. Read more…

“INVASION PLANET EARTH” Now on DVD

February 1st, 2020 No comments

 

 

Review by John Delia

The cool little indie Invasion Planet Earth has been released in North America on DVD, VOD and through digital cable providers. It’s a fun science fiction story that depicts a “new beginning” for the planet that has destroyed most of its population through a terrorist act and finds itself in the hands of aliens that hold the final key to life and death. The production as to explosions and space travel may look a little stark, uneven and not as incredible as movies like Star Wars, but are still viably entertaining to an audience. The directing, acting and script are very good and the presentation on your home televisions should make the experience enjoyable. Read more…

“AFTER PARKLAND” The Work to be Heard Begins

Review by John Delia

With the release of the documentary After Parkland, voices have a movie for America. The massacre of the 17 students that took place at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School on February 14, 2018 was awful and despicable to say the least. But, instead of standing by and letting time pass in order to forget, the students, parents and people of Parkland, Florida have spoken in this able production in hopes of being part of the solution of making schools safe.

“NATION’S FIRE” An Action Thriller

January 20th, 2020 No comments

 

Review by John Delia

The indie Nation’s Fire is not half bad considering what’s playing on the crowded cable systems that are getting very competitive for the VOD market. But, what pushes this film over the competition is the recklessness of the plot, the acting and a director who’s knee deep in the Genre. Working with some notables like Bruce Dern, Gil Bellows, Lou Ferrigno Jr., Kristen Renton and the up and coming Krista Grotte who steals the show, Thomas J. Churchill brings a good offering. The film plays out to an older crowd that likes high powered action and not a lot of superfluous dialogue. But, most anyone from 21 to 60 should enjoy all the chaos and revenge. The production crew gets the job done in spite of the noticeable low budget. Read more…
