“5B” Startling and Heroic

Review by John Delia, Sr.

Eye opening, sometimes sad and chilling the AIDS epidemic of the 70’s gets a birds eye view of one of the most horrible times in American History. The documentary is titled 5B after the ward that was set up at San Francisco Hospital to take in the large number of patients that were diagnosed positive with HIV. Read more…

“The Tomorrow Man” Living the Dream

Review by John Delia

A sweet romantic film involving an aging couple, The Tomorrow Man takes a look at hope, salvation and love. The movie has a lot of heart, some comedic overtones and provides a canvas for two aging actors that make the screen sizzle with delight. Aimed at our seniors, women of all ages and those who need a refresher on life. If you are in this group it’s one you won’t want to miss. Read more…

“American Exit” Fleeing the Mob

Review by John Delia

Writing a road trip movie these days is very tricky since most every subject, situation, and condition have been transferred by film to screens big and small. However, American Exit’s a drama that sneaks through the cracks and gives fans of the genre an interesting, although a bit mundane, ride to nowhere. Read more…

“Tolkien” A Journey to Fellowship

Review by John Delia, Sr.

It would be interesting to see how many teens and twenty-something’s will be going to see the film Tolkien that opens this weekend everywhere. Reason being, it’s the action/adventure audience that dominated the box office during the release of the Lord of the Rings trilogy and The Hobbit trilogy. The trailer for Tolkien tends to push the war with images of creatures from those two masterpieces and not the romance and friendships of the author, that’s the basis for 70 percent of the film. That said, it may just be a chance for that crowd to see a real masterwork without all the CGI violence. Read more…

Review by Ian 

Before the movie started at a screening of all critics in Orlando, Florida, I set myself looking for a great new Marvel movie. But, it wasn’t just great, it was the best Marvel movie ever. From start to the amazing ending the movie is a jaw dropping cinematic triumph. Avengers: Endgame has the intensity drawn from all the past Marvels Avengers movies and then some. Read more…

“Avengers: Endgame” Will They Call it Quits?

Review by John M. Delia, Jr.

Prepare for a spectacular conclusion to the Avengers: Infinity War, which had left our heroes in a situation where they were feeling defeated. With half of the world’s population disintegrated by the mighty snap of Thanos, Earth’s people have to struggle. The Avengers: Endgame involves trying to pick up the pieces of the large amount of losses with which they now have to deal. With all of the original six Avengers still intact, but spread out all over the galaxy, they must find a way to pull together and have enough strength to find a way to rebuild our world. “It’s Do Or Die” and the clock is running.

“Green Book” Best Picture now on Blu-ray

Review by John Delia

A very likable movie, Green Book not only took the Golden Globe Awards for Best Picture and Best Supporting Actor, but the Oscar as well. Now on 4K, Ultra Blu-ray, Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD, the movie gives its best theatrical performance in your home. I’m not shocked that the film won top honors as the story certainly is deserving, direction impeccable and stellar acting in the delivery of the characters to the screen. Read more…

“Captain Marvel” Gets Down to Earth

Review by John Delia

Definitely not Wonder Woman, the new lady in town is Captain Marvel and she arrives with a whimper instead of a whirlwind. All her energy is in her hands and it’s like watching two hours of Storm without the tornado’s ferocity. It’s not the best origin movie and the introduction of this character really softens the Marvel Universe, rather than give it the enthusiasm needed to carry it the next Avengers: Endgame. Read more…

“Arctic” Defying Death

February 21st, 2019 No comments

 

 

Review by John Delia

A frost biting  film with some magnificent cinematography, Arctic puts its audience into survival mode. The film has a very good lone performance by Mads Mikkelsen that certainly is up there with his best. The storyline, however, has been done in many different locations including the snowbound wilderness of the Andes (Alive 1993), stuck on an island (Cast Away 2000), lost in a dessert (Gerry 2002), a rocky canyon (127 Hours 2010), stranded at sea (All Is Lost 2013), deserted in a rainforest (Jungle 2017), and many more. That said, for those that like a lot of suspense and deathly challenges, it doesn’t matter if you have seen the aforementioned as this one really works. Read more…
