“Mission: Impossible- Rogue Nation (Review & Trailer)

Review by John Delia

A tad too long, a bit slow, but enough impossible action to keep you awake to the very end. The fifth sequel Mission: Impossible- Rogue Nation hits theaters this weekend as the alpha lone wolf for its male targeted audience. The cast from Mission: Impossible- Ghost Protocol returns in support of Tom Cruise with the addition of Alec Baldwin and newbie Jessica Ferguson and all put on a good show. While this one does entertain, it doesn’t have the punch of Ghost Protocol. Read more…

Review by John Delia

The explosive crime thriller 10 Cent Pistol involves a robbery gone bad, a debt paid in blood and a mixed up romance that adds a nice twist for good measure. The movie’s one of those indies that come along once in a while and turn into gold on the screen. Extremely well written and directed by Michael C. Martin, the movie has plenty of twists and intrigue to entertain most adults. Read more…

Review by John Delia

A very compelling documentary Cartel Land takes you into Mexico for an up in your face look at the battles for a safe community. Pulling no punches and showing how the drug producing, kidnapping, border crossing, vicious cartels have hold on the people in areas of Mexico. It also delves and makes accusations about the government’s participation in the cartels with a policy of laissez-faire. Violent, emotional, informative the film makes its way into theaters for all to see and ponder. It’s not only Mexico, as the film reaches onto U.S. soil effecting all Americans. Read more…

“SOUTHPAW” (Review and Trailer)

Poster SOUTHPAW sized

 

 

Review by John Delia

You can hear a pin drop in the boxer’s dressing room as the feel of high tension begins. Here we see prize fighter Billy Hope (Jake Gyllenhaal) getting his hands meticulously taped for his championship boxing match against Darius Jones (Cedrick D. Jones). Still undefeated, Billy needs to win the fight to retain the Light Heavyweight Crown and the fame and money that goes with it. In the ring the battle between the two gets very brutal with each taking pounding blows to the body and cuts on their faces. Blood running from Hope’s eye has not stopped the man from his determination to last through round ten. The number of hits he’s taking from Jones has put Billy in a position of putting Jones down for a ten count or being unseated as champ. This is Southpaw. Read more…

“LILA & EVE” (FILM REVIEW AND TRAILER)

Review by John Delia

Ladies make sure you see Lila & Eve, a crime drama that will take you into the depths of a mother’s despair. Starring Viola Davis and Jennifer Lopez, the compelling film deals with street crime like you’ve never seen before. While the target audience does lean toward women, the performances are amazing and the story convincing. It’s a thriller that speaks volumes so I believe that both sexes will take it to heart.

Review by John Delia

The movie Terminator Genisys surprises with top quality special effects, continuous action scenes and a welcome return of Arnold. The storyline may be a little complicated if you are trying to piece together the previous four outings, but take a deep breath and just go to enjoy the shape shifting time traveling bots that deliver chaos wherever they appear. If you are an action junkie and want an adrenaline rush, go see the newest edition of John Connor’s attempt to take down the spy in the sky that lead to annihilation of billons on the planet.

“DOPE” (REVIEW & TRAILER)

Review by John Delia

Dope is “dope”; a fast moving comedy crime drama that takes you into the hood of LA and treats you to a story of being in the wrong place at the wrong time. The nicely directed characters, equally good acting and satisfactory camera work combines indie magic with an exciting script. The movie won the audience award at Sundance and will delight moviegoers across the US. Other than a few flaws in production value you wouldn’t know the movie was made with a low budget. Read more…

SPY poster

 

 

Review by John Delia

Just when you think you’ve seen the funniest comedy of 2015 up pops Spy a hilarious silly movie that entertains big time. The scrappy little film with a lot of raunchy dialogue had me in stitches from the outlandish beginning to the very last scene during the credits. Since it stars Melissa McCarthy, you may think I’m referring to her as she most always provides a good laugh, but how about pairing her up with the likes of Jason Statham. No way you say because he’s an action star and why would he be in a comedy? Well, it’s genius that he’s cast in Spy as his performance gets so off-the-wall that it takes the film to another comedic level. Read more…

“The 100-Year-Old Man who Climbed Out the Window…” (Film Review & Trailer

Review by John Delia

The strange little film The 100-year-old man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared takes its audience on a wild and wacky journey. It’s a lot of fun in the vein of a Forrest Gump, but this guy has more of a trek with danger all around. The film has very good acting and is based a script taken from a work of fiction by Jonas Jonassan. The book was a 2010 best seller in Sweden that went on to sell over 3 million copies worldwide. Nicely filmed and orchestrated by director and screenwriter Felix Herngren, the movie is a hoot. Read more…

Review by John Delia

My job is to see movies and give my opinion so my readers will know the good, bad and ugly before plunking down the dough to see them. After seeing Mad Max: Fury Road, I’m ready to see it again. This time I’m headed for an IMAX theater so I can get all the sounds and visuals of this action packed film up close. Call me a movie nut, but when it comes to films that go over the edge for their audience, I’m there! Read more…
