“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

March 6th, 2019 No comments

 

 

 

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

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…

Review by John Delia

If you are a fan of Manga, then you probably already know the character Alita. If you are just an action or superhero lover, then you’re covered as both genres take stage in Alita: Battle Angel. It’s a fast moving and furious action movie now in theaters. If you fall in love with Alita, I’ll remind you she’s just a figment of someone’s imagination, or is she? Read more…

By John M. Delia, Jr

What would the world be like if there were really super heroes? Their powers may not be so obvious for most to see. Like super human strength, amazing intelligence, and the ability to see the future. Would this be something we would all embrace? Remember if there is one special hero, there is always the opposite and that’s its villain. This third installment of the series will tie everything together. Read more…

Review by John M. Delia, Jr.

Another chapter in the World of Wizards starts to unfold the continuous evil that surrounds them all.  The fear the world they all know will break apart and endanger both the Magical as well as the Non-Magical will come to pass. Action needs to be taken to attempt to stop what their possible future entails. Read more…

“Instant Family” Fun and Heartfelt

Review by John Delia

Nicely acted with creative directing, but the bottom line is…its one man’s reality pressing for a need to spread the word. For the fantasy of it all however, the comedy gets high pitched, the mind has a chance to think and the heart gets a good massage. Do I recommend Instant Family? Absolutely, it’s brilliant!

“The Old Man & The Gun” Fascinating & Revealing

Review by John Delia

Fascinating and revealing the scriptwriters of The Old Man & the Gun take a chance on a true story, but it’s nothing more than a showcase rather than a compelling feature film. There have been quite a few films in the last decade that create vehicles offering audiences a chance to see a famous star in their twilight, light up the screen. While many have been used as support characters, this one serves as Robert Redford’s homage for an amazing contribution to the movie industry. Read more…
