“MA” a Diabolical Thriller

Review by John Delia, Sr.

If you think the movie Get Out was shocking, wait until you see the diabolical Ma. You won’t have a clue to what this party woman has cooked up until just the right moment. Then as it unravels, even some of the hints are misleading. When you do know the truth, then it’s just one sick scene after another. Read more…

“Trial by Fire” Based on a True Story

Review by John Delia

Based on an article that ran in “The New Yorker” and the letters from an inmate on Texas’s death row, the film Trial by Fire opens this weekend in wide release. Based on a true story, the film has an edge to it that makes a case against the death penalty. While it’s a narrative and a good production, the subject of the film Cameron Todd Willingham, who denied his guilt of intentionally killing his three toddlers, has been debated in a documentary of the same title that aired in 2010 on PBS’s “Frontline”.

“Life Like” a Futuristic Thriller

Review by John Delia

Kind of a cool movie, Life Like plays out well with a story that, although kind of déjà vu, gets compelling and a bit predictable. Even though, the fine acting in this nicely laid out Sci-fi thriller delivers an absorbing and persuasive film that’s sure to entertain. Read more…

Review by John Delia

A moving dramatic biography, The White Crow, opens this weekend and it’s not only a magnificent production, but a reminder of one of the most remarkable events in history. If you have heard of Rudolf Nureyev than you have a good idea of why he was a spark that helped to melt the cold war. If not then you are in for an enlightening of the extraordinary dancer’s challenging life. Read more…

“Serenity” Mystery and Uncertanty

Review by John Delia

It’s beautifully filmed, courageously acted, complicated, and twisted , so keep focused for the payoff as it’s a zinger. The movie Serenity opens this weekend with an interesting twist and some amazing scenery. While the cast makes their characters interesting and compelling, I found a couple of characters out of sync in their performances. That said, the film is worth the watch for those who like a story that involves mystery and uncertainty.

“Colette” Seductive and Baroque

Review by John Delia

One of the most alluring period pieces in recent years the biography Colette comes to the screen with a sordid story that should entertain and raise a few eyebrows. The audience target here is women 25 and older, but mostly over 50. Nicely directed with 1800’s French costuming, sets and locations, the film delves into a pair of novelists’ romance, decadence, duplicity and sex. Sounds like a winner to me, however it’s a bit too drawn out. Read more…

“Backstabbing for Beginners” Food for Play

Review by John Delia, Sr.

The title of this movie, Backstabbing for Beginners, may be a good description, but it also fools its audience into thinking they are about to see a love relationship gone wrong. That said, the film itself is a decent political thriller that’s centered around an actual happening on the world stage. A good cast and storyline, the movie puts its audience in the thick of Iraq under Saddam Hussein during a United Nations deal to feed the country’s starving population. If you like world politics and how countries can be manipulated, then rush to see Backstabbing for Beginners. Read more…

“Truth or Dare” The Evil Lies Within

Review by John Delia, Sr.

Captivating, creepy, and chilling the supernatural thriller Truth or Dare takes you on a never ending journey of death. Much like other horror filmmakers that have perfected the formula for surprise and contagious emotional terror, this film has it all bundled tightly and calculating to transfix the audience into believing. If you saw the films It Follows, The Ring and the Final Destination series, you’ll relive the sensations those films made way beyond leaving the theater. Read more…

“Half Magic” Conjuring up Love

Review by John Delia, Sr.

When it comes to women’s sexual empowerment over the years they certainly have the edge as shown in the movie Half Magic. In fact the opening minutes of this very funny romantic comedy even “outs” the P word for vagina. Much like the docudrama Free the Nipple in which the film makes female nudity popular, this film makes the P word an accepted addition to our vocabulary, well maybe. The movie “outs” the word as an empowerment for women. What’s next, using the C word for Penis? Oh, yeah that word’s used by the ladies several times in Half Magic. Read more…
