Get “Ready Player One”

Review by Brent Lorentson

Like so many others, when I read the book “Ready Player One” by Ernest Cline I simply fell in love with the nostalgic ride through the 80’s, all thanks to the virtual reality world called The Oasis. From start to finish it is a book filled with pop culture references that would make film and video game geeks squeal with delight. It was no surprise that the book was a hit and would be turned into a film. There were only two names I could think of that could ever come close to making this film a reality: Robert Zemeckis and Steven Spielberg. With Spielberg involved, he is the only person I could imagine that has the clout to get all the licensing rights needed to pull off this adaption. But still the biggest question I had was, does Spielberg still have it in him? I’m not questioning the man’s talent, but instead it’s the magic and wonder he would have to bring to his films. Would it be another Close Encounters of the Third Kind, ET, or Jurassic Park, where he was able get us to believe the fantastic and impossible is real while we sit in a dark auditorium watching his film?

Review combined content by John Delia, Sr and John M. Delia, Jr.

Add another sequel of Star Wars to you library as “The Last Jedi” has been released in several formats for home viewing. The new adventure takes its audience further into the future where we find ageing Luke Skywalker and the development of characters from “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” including Daisy Ridley’s Ray and Oscar Isaac’s Poe. The film not only brings you up to date on Skywalker, but introduces parts of the galaxy that will probably be used in future saga’s. Although this is a much needed link, you will not find it as powerful as “The Force Awakens.” Read more…

Review by John Delia, Sr.

A comedy that makes a statement about over population, the film Downsizing takes a look at “what if we could make our planet last longer?” The fun science fiction movie take a swipe at global warming by shrinking thousands of people that would use less of everything, including the packing in which it all comes. Nicely acted, the plot even has a special love story involving and unintended romance. Read more…

Opening this weekend, the long awaited sequel of one of the most creative classics of all time, Blade Runner 2049.

The movie has excellent direction by Oscar-nominated director Denis Villeneuve, amazing cinematography and a nicely connected storyline. The nearly 2 hour film may feel long, but true fans of Blade Runner will think it’s not enough. Read more…

Review by John Delia, Sr.

Kicking off into hyperspace Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 turns up the action and the comedy in this science fiction action adventure now on Blu-ray, DVD and 4K Ultra HD. It’s been nearly 3 years since the first one hit the big screen and that one was amazing, but I was extremely happy with this next chapter that blew me away. The production quality on the Blu-ray outweighs that of the first taking audiences into a future filled with imaginative aliens and a vast fantasy universe. Read more…
