“Avengement” Seeking Revenge

May 22nd, 2019 No comments

 

 

 

 

Review by John Delia, Sr.

Violence seems to be a bit prevalent in the movies these days with the likes of John Wick 3 being released last week and now the brutal Avengement takes the screen this weekend. Not as fast and furious as Wick, but this film has more brutality. Leaving nothing to the imagination, the movie starts and end with every possible vicious brawl that can place in an hour and a half screen time. Read more…

“Ask Dr. Ruth” Pertinent and Profound

Review by John Delia

On a rare occasion a movie documentary will come along that compels, intrigues, inspires and entertains, and Ask Dr. Ruth fits the bill. A well thought out, directed and informative biography of one of the most iconic women who ever lived, the film can be expressed in one word, magnetic. And, it keeps on giving way beyond the comical overtones, deep Holocaust memories, to her devotion to helping people appreciate the captivation of sex. Read more…

“The Chaperone” An Alluring Period Piece

Review by John Delia

An alluring period piece, the biography/drama The Chaperone makes for good viewing for its target audience females 35 plus. It’s just a snippet on the seductive actress Louise Brooks with the real story going to her companion Norma Carlisle. The film has some of the best cinematography I’ve seen in a drama in recent past and combined with perfect retro costume, sets, locations and make-up the film’s a winner. Read more…

“Screwball” Throws a Curve

Review by John Delia

You really don’t have to be a sports fan or a baseball nut to enjoy the documentary Screwball, but it helps. Back in the day baseball players wanted to be like Babe Ruth who in 1927 hit 60 home runs in one season of baseball. Or how about Roger Maris who broke the Babe’s record in 1962 hitting 61 in one season. Both players will always be remembered for their feat, but not so today knowing that others have put more across the fence including Sammy Sosa who hit 66 and Mark McGwire 70 both in 1998, a spectacular feat. But there was one more to come in 2001 when Barry Bonds hit 73 and still holds the record. Read more…

“Babylon” Dealing with Discrimantion

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…

“Hostile” Looking to Survive

Review by John Delia

Have you ever watched a movie and the acting was just okay, but the story and production were so compelling you lasted through it? Well, I have another one for you. It’s called Hostile and it has just been released on DVD. I do like the actors however, as they are fresh faces in a world of repeat performers who have dominated the screen. With better direction and a better remix of the plot, this film could have been a real standout. In the meantime if you like films that have cannibals and the look of a Mad Max thriller, combined with a romance that has a decent plot, then check this one out. Read more…

“Trench 11” A Horror Fan’s Delight

Review by John Delia

One of the better thriller flicks to come from Canada has reached America and it has enough terror and putrid dead bodies for even the most hardened horror fans. It’s called Trench 11 and it has been released on DVD, VOD and Digital HD. Nicely acted, directed and created for the screen, the film gets you engrossed from the very first frame to its sick finale. And I don’t mean sick in a bad way. Read more…

“Dead Envy” a Musical Horror Story

September 3rd, 2018 No comments

 

 

 

 

 

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…

“Eating Animals” a Strong Reminder

Review by John Delia

We all eat food in some form or another. And we trust that it comes to us in a safe and wholesome way to feed our bodies. In fact, a good percentage of us are choosy of what we eat, how it is cooked, and how it’s served. But, when a business needs meat quick and plenty of it, or wants to keep prices down, they may be buying it from factory farms. Enter the documentary Eating Animals, an investigative look at raising chickens, cattle and hogs for human consumption. Read more…
