“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…

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…

A Marvel Antihero “Venom”

Review by John Delia

A new super dude arrives on the scene and this time it’s a hero controlled by an antihero called Venom. Probably the ugliest of the Marvel villains, the Symbiote character “feeds off” humans as it does its dirty work. Purists should be informed that Spider-Man, the graphic novel first host for the evil parasite Venom, does not appear in the movie and therefore deviates from the norm. Read more…

Review By John Delia

The movie I’ve been waiting to arrive for quite a while Solo: A Star Wars Story blasts into homes on October 25. It’s an adventure that reminded me of the start of the franchise with the comedy, adventure and glory that made Star Wars fun way to imaging the universe. Being a prequel, we get to find out where Han Solo the smuggler started out, the reasons for his distrust of the Empire and how he meets his friend Chewbacca. And all the action, excitement and thrills that made Episode 4 a winner are multiplied tines 2 in this creative must see Sci-fi thriller. The film will be released on DVD, Blu-ray, 4K/BD combo and Digital HD. Read more…

“Hostile” Looking to Survive

Review by John Delia

Have you ever watched a movie and the acting was just okay, but the story and production were so compelling you lasted through it? Well, I have another one for you. It’s called Hostile and it has just been released on DVD. I do like the actors however, as they are fresh faces in a world of repeat performers who have dominated the screen. With better direction and a better remix of the plot, this film could have been a real standout. In the meantime if you like films that have cannibals and the look of a Mad Max thriller, combined with a romance that has a decent plot, then check this one out. Read more…

Review by Ian Delia

If you can remember all the hit teen blockbusters like the “Divergent” or “Maze runner” series, then this movie Kin will be no surprise. From the reaction by the audience in some of the pivotal scenes, I could see they weren’t impressed. I agree with their response to the film as I wasn’t very interested, but I wasn’t disappointed either. Read more…

Review by John M. Delia, Jr.

The world has become a place of danger and mistrust and it’s not safe for anyone. Treachery surrounds everyone, but mostly the youth fear what will happen to them and the adults fear what the children have become. Read more…

“Ant-Man and the Wasp” Teen View

Review by Ian Delia

If you have seen the movie “Captain America: Civil War”, Ant- man made an appearance as a partner of Captain America. As an effect of that clash of the Avengers, Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) was put on house arrest and wears an ankle monitor. He was also told to destroy the Ant-Man suit and never to make contact with Dr. Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) or his daughter Hope Van Dyne (Evangeline Lilly). Read more…
