“JOURNEY’S END” The Harsh Reality of War

Review by John Delia, Sr.

Breathtaking, yet not in scenery way, the movie Journey’s End takes you into the World War I trenches manned by the British who are facing off against the Germans. Expertly filmed, directed and acted, the movie gets down and dirty in the lousy conditions of the dugouts, officers’ quarters and the battlefield. There are scenes so compelling they will keep you on the edge of your seat as generals decide whether to advance or withdraw. Read more…

“The Post” Exposing the Pentagon Papers

Review by John Delia, Sr.

Several movies have been released over the past three decades that defend the press or show the importance of the media to inform the public. This is one of them that for the most part does expose the inner sanctum of one newspaper as it deals with exposing the government for wrong decisions leading to the death of thousands in the Vietnam War. While the script of The Post does reveal the sadness of human life losses that could have been avoided, unfortunately the film uses it to glorify newspapers using old news. Read more…

Review by John Delia, Sr.

A mesmerizing true story that makes you cringe, wince and shudder, The Wall takes you into the backyard of Iraq at the end of the war. Well-acted and directed the movie keeps you on the edge of your seat from the opening sequence to the gut wrenching ending. Much like the film The American Sniper you’ll be holding your breath and squirming in your seat during the tense nearly an hour and a half. Read more…

Review by John Delia

Cinematically brilliant, the movie Hacksaw Ridge grabs you by the collar and slaps you upside your head with a true story of our fearless military and a hero that earned the respect of his country. It’s a reminder why we are free and why all our American soldiers can hold their head high for battles fought in every conflict. Sometimes it takes the insight of a good film like this to bring us back to reality. Read more…

“The German offensive of May 10, 1940 drove almost 8 million people from their homes, one of the largest displacements of people in the twentieth century. To my mother, a young girl among those who took to the roads”- Director Christian Carion

 

 

Review by John Delia

With many World War II films out there on video, another foreign made movie has entered local theatres with a different take. It’s a heart ‘tuger’ based on a true life happening titled Come What May. It features the French people and two German refugees fleeing their home country. The war drama shows how large numbers of innocent people had to flee the murderous onslaught by the Nazis.

Review by John Delia

Bitter enemies face off in the film Tangerines, a war film set in Estonia. Set on a small scale the movie’s message gives it vast meaning. Extremely well-acted, directed and depicted, this heartfelt little production shows what other meaningful films do even better about the pointlessness of war. One of the five nominated Foreign Language Films at the 87th Academy Award a more than worthy to be among the best. Read more…
