“The Reports on Sarah & Saleem”

Review by John Delia, Sr.

If you are wanting a melodrama based on true events that is very different, then seek out the movie The Reports on Sarah & Saleem. The film takes place in modern day opposites Israel and Palestine. Although quite long and drawn out, the movie tells a unique story that involves adultery and revenge. The acing is very good and believable, but the direction could have worked better with a script that brought it to an end quicker and avoided predictability. Read more…

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…

Review by John Delia

It’s Julianne Moore at her best showing the great performer she is in a romantic comedy with heartbreak. As Gloria Bell she makes the lead role compelling and full of life giving her all and even more. It’s perfect for a date night so grab your best guy or gal and check it out. And it has an explosion of a sound track that includes “Gloria” by Laura Branigan and “Total Eclipse of the Heart” by Bonnie Tyler. 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…

“Widows” Just Short of a Masterpiece

Review by Gino Sassani

Steve McQueen has established himself as a rather talented director. 12 Years A Slave was one of the better films of 2013 and one of the few times I happened to agree with the Oscars’ choice for Best Picture. When he tackled the heist format I expected something unique, and I wasn’t at all disappointed. McQueen managed to put a clever spin on a tired genre and provide us with a superior and inspired cast. It wasn’t all completely his idea, of course. The film is based on a Canadian miniseries that goes back to the 1980’s. That doesn’t mean he hasn’t found a way to imprint the material with his own style and bold choices. There’s a lot to love about Widows, but I have pretty low expectations for this film at the box office. More on that later. Let’s get down to it, shall we? Read more…

“Life Itself” Living Your Experiences

September 21st, 2018 No comments

 

Review by John M. Delia, Jr.

Our life experiences influence what we do in our future and what our parents experience could also influence how we are as well. And, in tragedy and death we experience large amounts of loss that could also transfer to our unborn offspring. Lastly, we experience many ups and downs throughout our lifetime and how we react to those, good or bad, experiences make up who we are and how strong our will is to survive. Keep moving along knowing that there will be good life experiences, even though you will always have many hurdles to overcome as we see in Life Itself. Read more…

“Juliet, Naked” A Sweet Film

August 31st, 2018 No comments

 

Review by John Delia, Sr.

A work of art and a story about music that fills the void between dreams and reality, the movie Juliet, Naked opens in Florida this weekend. Nicely written for the screen from a novel by Nick Hornby, the movie takes a comedic look at a weird turn of events. It’s a heartfelt story that punctuates the screen with excellent acting and direction. It’s the perfect movie for couples who would like to do a dinner and film as it will keep you talking hours after you have left the theater. And if you are fans of late 80”s and early 90”s Alternative Rock music it’s a big plus. Read more…

“Siberia” Chills and Thrills

Review by John Delia

It may be listed as a crime thriller, but Siberia has a love story that glues the script together. The film takes you to the top of the world Russia where deals are made on diamonds and a lovely woman is stuck in a small town waiting for a man who can take her away. It’s a nice plot that intertwines a violent deal for the most precious of stones and a daring scheme that impacts it. Read more…

Schumer Fails to Deliver in “I Feel Pretty”

Review by John Delia, Sr.

Inspirational for many, inconceivable for others the movie I Feel Pretty boasts that it gives a boost of pride in oneself no matter what you look like. American society today has picked up where they left off in the thirties and has gathered steam as shown in recent women’s marches. It’s a wave of demands for better wages, equality, respect and equal opportunities for females. I Feel Pretty takes aim at self-esteem which includes self-confidence, worth, respect, regard, assurance and pride. The underlying ego booster for women in this script is “self-image”, and the writers Abby Kohn and Marc Silverstein nail it. Read more…

Get in Step With “Finding Your Feet”

Review by John Delia, Sr.

One of the most memorable films you’ll see this year, Finding Your Feet turns romance upside down and sideways. Targeted for couples and ladies the film not only entertains, but inspires those who have searched for love and had to get sidetracked to find it. Ladies, bring three Kleenex; one for the sad parts, one for the joyful scenes and one for the inspiring ending that will lead you to evaluating your own woes. Read more…
