“PLAN A” a Captivating Film

Review by John Delia

Very cringing, the film Plan A enters theaters with a story based on a true incident that took place in Germany at the end of WWII. Nicely filmed and produced, the movie is gripping and mesmerizing. It’s so maddening that it’s hard to take sides for forgiveness or revenge. The acting is extremely good, direction impeccable, and production value realistic. Read more…

“ROSALINE” Teen Romance

Written Review by John Delia

Teen worthy and charming, the film Rosaline gets released on HULU. It’s Romeo and Juliet with a new spin that includes a jilted lover. The acting is pretty good and the storyline not anything to write an essay on for high school, but it’s still entertainment that’s family friendly. Read more…

“WEREWOLF BY NIGHT” New from Marvel Studios

Written review by John Delia

Nicely done, the horror comedy film Werewolf by Night takes you into the lair of monsters that roam the darkness. Most werewolf stories prefer foggy places or forests where they lay waste to their victims. But this silly little gem takes you into the inner sanctum of the hunters who rid realms from the hairy daemons. Played out mostly in black and white for the effects of what the darkness will bring, the film only adds color when it’s totally necessary. Oh, and although it’s played through the streaming service of Disney+, the Marvel Studios brand makes it a bit more frightening for older teens to twenties. Read more…

YOUNG PLATO an Inspiring Documentary

October 1st, 2022 No comments

 

 

Review by John Delia

Inspirational and compelling, the film Young Plato carries the genre Documentary, but it plays out like a drama with a lot of heart. For many years Ireland has always had problems between the North and the South due to disagreements as to which part rules the country. In the middle of the conflict that has left an aura of dislike among the Catholics and Protestants, are the children that have to deal with it day after day. In their neighborhoods, although the armed conflict ended years ago, you can still see the remnants of the battles between the two factions. Read more…

“PINOCCHIO” Now on Disney+

September 8th, 2022 No comments

 

 

 

 

Review by John Delia

Most all adults have seen the animated film Pinocchio, but Disney+ has now released the live-action adaptation and it does change it up a bit. Still filled with adventure and a touching drama, the movie has all the original songs and wonderful co-animation to bring it to life. However, Disney tests the 21st Century audience with some updated material that does tend to lower the family values depicted in this remake. Read more…

“Cars on the Road” Riding on Disney+

September 7th, 2022 No comments

 

 

 

 

Written Review by John Delia

One of the most creative adventures from PIXAR/Disney, Cars is back in action only on Disney+. The adventure filled Cars on the Road gets released on a TV series that targets males, but is just as much fun for all the youngsters. Adults may get a bit picky on the presentation, especially if they grew up with the franchise, as it has evolved over the years making it look like TV instead of Big Screen production. Read more…

“Paradise Highway”

Written Review by John Delia

If you are looking for a film with a lot of gripping scenes that keep you glued to the screen, then check out Paradise Highway. It’s a thriller involving human trafficking that puts a good deal of light on one of the most sickening of crimes of our day. Although the crime has been batted around in the news of late due to our US southern border, this film takes you into the danger and intimacy surrounding one vulnerable young girl that became a victim from closer to home.

“BEAST” Hunted

August 20th, 2022 No comments

 

Review Written By Jeremy Butler

 

“We’re in his territory now.”

Given the film’s premise, this strikes me as the perfect tagline for the film. A family on safari finds themselves trapped and stalked by a lion with a bloodlust. It definitely evokes memories of the Val Kilmer and Michael Douglas-led 1996 film, The Ghost and The Darkness. In this instance, of course, they rely on the acting chops of Idris Elba to keep the film from descending into cliché. And while there are some situations that seem avoidable and unrealistic, the film did a great job of maintaining my interest for the duration. Read more…
