“ALIEN: COVENANT” (Written Review & Trailer)

Review by John Delia, Sr.

If you have never seen an Alien movie on the big screen or are a diehard fan of the creatures, then check out the newest installment called Alien: Covenant. The film has all the horror value of the first two and if you saw Prometheus a better understanding of this one as well. The only drawback is the scare meter, especially for the moviegoers who already know what the aliens look like, how they are “born” and their attack mode. But, for the storyline the film has some merit, although it may give most fans déjà vu. Read more…

Review by John M. Delia Jr.

Take a wild ride on Kong: Skull Island a slick new film about the ferocious Gorilla that never fails to amaze. However the campy story and the chaotic acting, one thing still remains, it’s the violent, creepy and mysterious creatures that will get you every time. What lies on the surface is terrifying enough, but what lies below, unstoppable. As for the real rollercoaster ride, read my comment below. Read more…

Review by John Delia, Sr.

If you are looking to see an exciting film with a lot of creativity and adventure, then you may want to look elsewhere than Arrival. More of a mystery that spools out like Jodi Foster’s Contact that moves at a slow pace trying to fill in the blanks to the very end. With Arrival however, the film does take some twists that at least give the audience a good measure of entertainment. Read more…

Review by John Delia

A very impressive, dramatic and exciting Star Trek Beyond opens this weekend and for trekkies, sci-fi enthusiasts and action film lovers it’s a perfect getaway. Overflowing with superb CGI effects, “fast and furious” explosiveness and settings beyond the beyond, the film should do very well in attendance at the box office. Best seen in the IMAX 3D format, the film jumps off the screen and drives you into the story as it gets played out in a galaxy of the future. Read more…

Captain America: Civil War (Film Review and Trailer)

CAP AMERICA CW poster

 

 

Review by John Delia

Probably one of the most dramatic Avengers film, Captain America: Civil War comes on the heels of another drama by a different comic book heroes Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. They both have a similar theme and all the special effects in the world to back it up. But, as the two films go, Captain America wins out by far. There’s so much CGI in this film that it’s very hard to tell between reality and animated fantasy. Actually your mind will be so boggled that there’s no time to think about anything except who’s the next Marvel superhero to appear in the film. With this Captain America sequel, it’s time to release more Avengers into the fray with more surprises that one can handle. Read more…

The Phoenix Incident (Film Review and Trailer)

Review by John Delia

Most documentaries are usually biographical, historical, or political taking one into the center of a particular topic. In the case of The Phoenix Incident however, the film uses the genre to entertain while tying in with an actual event. This sometimes works to a high degree, especially subjects that threaten extinction like the atom bomb, space junk and earthquakes. UFO sightings have been an ongoing subject for years with most of the evidence hidden from the public labeling them as scientific anomalies or military exercises. The Phoenix Incident takes the subject of alien sightings and possible abduction a step further citing an actual happening that the filmmakers say was a cover up. Read more…

BATMAN v SUPERMAN

 

 

 

 

Review by John Delia

The highly stylized Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice opens this weekend loosely packed with energy and adventure, the film will have a tough time getting accolades from its fans. Trying to fit the mold of predecessors like The Avengers series with a lengthy story that includes Batman Begins and casting mistakes hurt the film a bit, but that overlooked, it’s a good intro to a possible Justice League movie franchise. Will the special effects and CGI save the costly film from losing a bundle? Probably. Read more…

Review by John Delia

Being that 10 Cloverfield Lane has been touted as a sequel to the 2008 release of Cloverfield, I thought we would find ourselves where the action thriller left off. Well I was pleasantly surprised that this chapter surrounds a mystery that had me spellbound from the creative opening to the Cloverfield tie-in. It’s an eerie addictive sequel that captivates and compels as it moves along from one strange scene to the next. Read more…
