By John Delia, Sr.

The perfect horror film enters the darkened rooms of local cinemas this weekend and It should slice off the biggest chunk of change of the year thus far for a horror film. The movie’s screenplay, based on a book by the master of sick and twisted stories Steven King, is simply called It. The production proves very screen worthy, nicely acted and directed and hits the target audience on the bulls-eye. If terror and scary is your cup of tea, It is looking for you. Read more…

Review by John Delia, Sr.

This true story aims straight at the heart with a compassionate delivery of one of America’s anomalies, wrongly convictions for a crime. According to the film 2.4 million people are in prison and an estimate 120,000 are innocent. Quite a statement don’t you think? The movie drama Crown Heights follows one such innocent convict showing how the penalty system can fail. Read more…

Review by John Delia, Sr.

A powerful, captivating, thrilling, jaw dropper, the exciting film Good Time showcases a fine performance by Robert Pattinson and a creative script by Roland Bronstein and Josh Safdie. The crime story works its way into your head as Patterson’s protagonist finds himself caught up in a paradox created by wrong decisions. Decisions that will decide the fate of himself and his mentally challenged brother. It’s a hypnotic non-stop adrenaline rush from start to finish. Read more…

Review by John Delia, Sr.

Totally hilarious The Hitman’s Bodyguard turns into a wild ride early on in this action comedy “odd couple” movie. The script may give you a bit of déjà vu, but it’s well worth the laughs and thrills. Certainly a nice cap to a “dinner and a movie”, as Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson are a hoot together.

“A GHOST STORY” (Written Review & Trailer)

Review by guest writer Brent Lorentson

It’s difficult to be original and innovative when it comes to tackling a haunted house film. Ghost stories have been around for ages and told just about every way you can imagine. So what do you do to give the audience something they have never seen before? After coming back from directing Pete’s Dragon, writer/director David Lowery delivers a small intimate film that manages to take A Ghost Story and makes it something unique from all the rest. Though when I say unique, and when I say innovative, this may not be a positive for some. Read more…

Review by John M. Delia, Jr.

During World War II prior to the Americans joining the European part of the War the French and English were pushed back to the sea near the city of Dunkirk. Their only conclusion was to evacuate across the channel quickly and try to avoid the onslaught of the German aerial warfare (Luftwaffe). Dunkirk depicts the struggle the English had trying to get back across the channel. The true story is considered one of the bloodiest and most tragic part of the war for the allies. Read more…

Review by John Delia, Sr.

Another touching and sincere indie film, The Hero reaches out and grabs you while it plays to your heartstrings. Star of the film, Sam Elliott is such a good actor his performance alone has enough worth for a trip to a theater to watch him perform on the big screen. But you will get far more in the direction and writing of Brett Haley who paces the film in a way that intrigues while it entertains. Read more…

Review by John Delia, Sr.

Admittedly I adore Salma Hayek, but before I say another word, let me say that if you are not a diehard indie fan that must see every movie she has made, you can pass up Beatriz at Dinner. The movie starts out like a winner and fails to provide anything more than a boring hour and 23 minutes of yesterday’s news. Read more…
