Review by John Delia, Sr.

Turning the tables on a kidnapper can be a tough proposition even for the most experienced FBI men, but as the film Kidnap shows, do not underestimate a woman obsessed. It’s one of the most terrifying films this year and Halle Barry makes the movie work from the moment you see her on screen until the brutal finale. Wow! Read more…

Review by John Delia, Sr.

Intriguing and Compelling the movie Past Life adds another true event story to the long list of films on the Holocaust.

“The Blackcoat’s Daughter” (Written Review & Trailer)

Review by John Delia

This gruesome horror thriller The Blackcoat’s Daughter has more suspense than most and that’s a good thing for those that like to try and figure things out before they happen. But, you’ll have a tough time figuring this thriller out as Director and writer Osgood Perkins knows how to set up a story without giving it all away. Dark and sinister the acting crew works their magic with performances that are chilling, daemonic and entrancing. Great for men, but better for the ladies, it’s a ladies night out for those that like a grisly shocker. Read more…

Review by John Delia

Being able to deliver a good western isn’t easy, especially when most of the plots have already been brought to the screen. But, writer/director Martin Koolhoven takes a shot at turning the old west into a thriller that boggles the mind with its twists, turns and surprises and it works big time. His Brimstone stacks up against the best including Quinton Tarantino’s The Hateful Eight and Alejandro González Iñárritu’s The Revenant. Read more…

“Get Out” (Written Review & Trailer)

Review by John Delia

Disturbing and provocative the movie Get Out turns up the volume on suspense and terror. One of the better scary films in a long time, the movie challenges you from the very start as to the motives of a family gathering with a “Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner” impression that turns sour. If you like fright films like The Visit this is your cup of tea. Read more…

Review by John M. Delia, Jr

Visually amazing and thrilling, the movie The Great Wall certainly has the best effects and story thus far in 2017. Even though most of the film makes the use of a massive amount of CGI, that’s not a bad thing here as the production certainly warrants it. If you are a fan of high impact movies like World War Z, then this film should be on your list to see this weekend. Read more…

“John Wick: Chapter 2” (Written Film Review & Trailer)

Review by John Delia

If you are familiar with the original movie two years ago, John Wick: Chapter 2 serves up a heaping helping of violence this time around as well. The action packed hitman film moves from New York to Rome, Italy where violence explodes Italian style. Although you need not have seen the first film, it wouldn’t hurt to relive it a bit on video. Especially if you may be hesitant about seeing a second passionate ode to carnage. Read more…

“Split” (Written Review & Trailer)

Review by John M. Delia, Jr.

Very disturbing and frightening at times, the film Split puts director M. Night Shyamalan back in movie theaters. Coming off the sinister shocker The Visit, which earned over $98 million in 2015, he’s chosen a good weekend for his new horror thriller with its only competition xXx sequel and The Founder. The trailer should drive all the thrill seekers and especially mature pre-teens to 20’s horror fans into seats this weekend, making it the top box-office winner. But except for a few of Shyamalan’s movies, it has his signature weak “how did that just happen” finale. Read more…

“Miss Sloane” (Written Review & Trailer)

Review by John Delia

Jessica Chastain gives brilliantly “wicked” performance in the film Miss Sloane as a lobbyist caught in the middle of a Senate Bill debate. She’s so good at projecting the persona of a strong woman that the ladies may even have cop an attitude following the show. Just kidding guys. Or maybe not. Right now she’s in my top picks for an Oscar. Read more…
