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…

“WAR FOR THE PLANET OF THE APES” (Written Review & Trailer)

Review By Gino Sassani

“All of human history has led to this moment. The irony is we created you. And nature has been punishing us ever since. This is our last stand. And if we lose… it will be a Planet of Apes.”

I was always a fan of the original Planet of the Apes series of films. While they often flirted with a camp style, I was impressed with John Chambers’ makeup effects and the performances of Roddy McDowall as both Cornelius and Caesar. Then came the television show and I remained just as enchanted because of McDowall’s appearance as a third ape, Galen. The show didn’t last a season however, and before long the Apes franchise was left in some kind of limbo. Read more…

“The Dinner” (Written Review & Trailer)

Review by John Delia, Sr.

The interesting drama The Dinner puts you in the middle of a meeting that turns a family upside down over a cruel incident that will affect their lives forever. Nicely directed by Oren Moverman the film turns a contentious situation into a battle between brothers that sickens as the predictable story plays out. Sometime tough to contemplate, The Dinner gives the audience a full four course meal in destroying relationships. Read more…

“Going In Style” (Written Film Review & Trailer)

Review by John M. Delia, Jr.

Putting a twist on the original movie Going in Style, director Zach Braff does a good job of reviving the comedy for modern day audiences. He turns up the laughter with memorable situation comedy and actors who can deliver some of the best one liners. It’s a lot of fun for a date night or just a chance to get away from the hum drum to laugh a little. Read more…

“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…

Disney’s “Beauty and the Beast” (Written Review & Trailer)

Review by John M. Delia, Jr

Can Beauty tame the Beast once more? This beautiful fairy tale of Walt Disney’s Beauty and the Beast has now been turned into a live action motion picture that delivers a more detailed story. What once was animation that provided the story of romance and power, with this release it’s the actors that have to reach out to the audience and make them believe. And they nail it! Much like the recent Walt Disney’s Cinderella (2015) and The Jungle Book (2016), I’m predicting Beauty and the Beast will be another worldwide blockbuster. 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…

“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…

“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…

Review by John Delia

Spicy and exciting the film The Handmaiden enters select theaters this weekend and for adults it’s a powerful mystery drama with romantic overtones. The fine direction, acting, story and cinematography make the film pleasurable. It’s for those who like a titillating movie experience tied in with a sordid plot that takes some unexpected twists. The film, if it had been rated, could have easily received the highest MPAA judgement possible. Read more…
