“They Shall Not Grow Old” A Gripping Documentary

Review by John Delia

I’m sure many of you reading this review have seen documentaries about war that have run on cable TV. The most prevalent is World at War that covers World War II and other American conflicts. Digging through archives of war museums could be a very difficult task and one that would have to be approved by the powers that be. Most of you also know Peter Jackson for his films The Lord of the Rings trilogy and The Hobbit trilogy. Read more…

“Trench 11” A Horror Fan’s Delight

Review by John Delia

One of the better thriller flicks to come from Canada has reached America and it has enough terror and putrid dead bodies for even the most hardened horror fans. It’s called Trench 11 and it has been released on DVD, VOD and Digital HD. Nicely acted, directed and created for the screen, the film gets you engrossed from the very first frame to its sick finale. And I don’t mean sick in a bad way. Read more…

“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…

Written Review by Gino Sassani

Armies have been using dogs in battle for thousands of years. The Romans would turn the dogs on their enemy as a signal of the approaching legions, hence the expression “Let loose the dogs of war”. But in recent decades dogs have found a new, perhaps more noble calling during wartime. Dogs have been used to search for lost soldiers. They have been trained to assist wounded soldiers. 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…

Filled with mixed emotions the movie Frantz takes to art houses this weekend in the South Florida area. Nicely directed and co-written by Francois Ozon noted French filmmaker the movie entrances as it slowly spools out the big screen.

Review by John Delia

Wide sweeping vistas and a romantic musical score add to The Ottoman Lieutenant’s compelling war drama. It’s a moving and defiant love story, one that reaches audiences far and wide with a chance for women to revel in its forbidden romance. If you like sagas that titillate your imagination sending you back to an era that’s almost forgotten, then this is your cup of tea. Read more…

Review by John Delia

Billed as a comedy with drama and based on a true story, War Dogs takes you into the world of selling guns during wartime. The film delves into profit making from the military and the risks the gun sellers take for chances of making millions. While a lot of Hollywood goes into the film, it does happen and it did happen this way, mostly. What adds high entertainment value to the movie comes from the acting by two of America’s better actors, Oscar nominated Jonah Hill and rising star Miles Teller. Read more…

Review By John Delia

Opening in theaters this weekend is the daring and courageous true story of a young boy who out foxed the Germans during WWII Poland for four years. The film digs deep into the heart of the young man who wouldn’t give up even in the face of death. If you see one foreign film this year, make it be Run Boy Run, it will stay with long after you have left the theater. Not enough can be said of the atrocities that took place in Europe during the most diabolical era of mankind that defined genocide and depicted man’s inhumanity to man. Read more…
