“Uncut Gems” A Shining Jewel

December 25th, 2019 No comments

 

 

 

Review by John Delia

At first you may be taken aback by the performance of Adam Sandler in the movie Uncut Gems, but after you get to know his character the actor’s performance is one of the best this year. Not really a serious character actor, Sandler is best known for his slapstick comedy and films that resonate with the 18 to 35 crowd. Here however, he’s a serious gambling addict that doesn’t know when to stop even if he scores big while betting on sports and other games of chance. It’s a role by him you will not believe and one that he’s very far from his normal element, but just the same it’s a mesmerizing tour de force. Read more…

Review by John Delia

Coming to the screen this weekend is the movie It Chapter Two, a continuation of the iconic horror flick. The movie not only frightened the world, but added to the  damper put on the comical caricatures that were so loved back in the day. This episode, however is basically a remake of the 3 hour two part TV Mini-Series that was released in 1990. This release does have amazing production value that far outweighs the TV presentation of the same film. I wish I hadn’t seen the TV show as therefore it’s a bit of a downer. Read more…

Review by John Delia, Sr.

Shocking and disturbing, the movie Skin puts you into the thick of the White Supremacist revolution during the early 2000’s. But, this biography does have a happy ending and that’s not easy when it comes to one of the most uncontrollable underground hate groups in America. The filmmakers do a very good job of bringing the film to the screen with a lot of explosive action, extreme and gut wrenching at times. Read more…

Review by John Delia, Sr.

Most everyone who has lived 1980’s through today has either heard of the figure skater Tonya Harding or maybe followed the antics she took to the Olympics in 1994. Or just google Tonya Harding and you’ll get the drift of what happened. But, how many of you know the “truth” according to her book “I, Tonya”? You’ll see it in the tell all film of love and hate.

“CHIPS” (Written Film Review & Trailer)

Review by John Delia

Rude, crude, extremely silly and violent the movie CHIPS has all of this and more. But, what you would expect from this parody of a TV series that won the hearts of millions in the mid 1970’s to early 80’s? A lot more than a lame remake. Billed as a crime drama, it’s more of a comedy with messy direction and over the top ridiculousness. I can go one step further; “CHIPS” was never a campy offensive show that relied on sex gags and stupidity to get laughs. That said, only go see it if you crave movies like Hot Tub Time Machine, Get Him to the Greek or Sex Drive to name a few. Read more…
