“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 Delia, Sr.

In a very funny display of French comedy, the movie Lost in Paris shines with a delightful story of unavoidable romance. The film is drenched in Marcel Marceau’s mime comedy, Jerry Lewis’s wit and a bit of Charlie Chaplin collectively performed by a delightful cast. 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…

Filled with mixed emotions the movie Frantz takes to art houses this weekend in the South Florida area.

Review by John Delia

A moving romantic drama that gets taught and heartbreaking, The Light Between Oceans has been released on home video. Nicely directed by Derek Cianfrance, who’s no stranger to the genre and delivered the passionate motion picture Blue Valentine. In this film his characters are caught up in a quandary that tests their motives and truth. I am a fan of lush filmed movies that have breathtaking scenery and this one is no exception. Read more…

Review by John Delia

The charming drama To Life (Auf das Leben!) opens this weekend in Florida and other parts of America and it’s a gripping tale with a touch of whimsy. Nicely directed and acted the film delves into the mind of a Jewish woman who’s possessed by her past and lost for an act of revenge. Not your average movie, this one will tantalize, draw out your inner feelings and possess you during and after the lights come up in the theater. Perfect for art house movie goers and those who enjoy a compelling drama. Read more…

Review by John Delia

After a long absence from the leading role, Sally Field returns to the big screen and it’s her film from opening line one to the logical ending. And what a performance by Field. Never losing her sweet cool, she shines in Hello, My Name is Doris, a romantic comedy with a little drama thrown in for good measure. It may get a little superficial, maudlin and bizarre, but that’s what makes the film the perfect couple’s night out. Ladies, it’s only a one tissue movie, but bring another for back-up. Read more…

Review by John Delia

Out of the ordinary, the true life biography of Lili Elbe The Danish Girl opens this weekend. The drama features excellent performances by Eddie Redmayne and Alicia Vikander so look for an Oscar nomination for either or both. The film delves into one of the most talked about life choices of our time involving sex change and written nicely for the screen by Lucinda Coxon. Read more…

Review by John Delia

A strong contender for best picture the movie Carol features a very good cast with performances that are sure to raise eyebrows, titillate and in some cases even repulse audiences during some explicit sexual scenes. Yet the film has an aura of sensuality and romance attributed to the 21st century openness to the gay movement. Read more…
