“Sing” (Written Review & Trailer)

December 17th, 2016 No comments








Review by John Delia

Probably the most silly of animated films this year, and that’s good thing for Sing. Enjoyable, very funny, touching and oh incredibly wacky the family film targets children, but the adults will enjoy it a lot more than the average toon. I’m surprised the filmmakers waited so long to put the film in theaters, but with no children’s anime to stop it from becoming a blockbuster, it’s a very possible chance it will. Read more…

Pete’s Dragon (Written Review and Trailer)

August 10th, 2016 No comments







Review by John Delia

Although it is about Pete and Elliot the dragon, Pete’s Dragon is a far cry from the live action and animated musical that we loved and filled our dreams as children. This Pete’s Dragon has a modern twist that sets even PG viewers on the edge of their seats. From the opening scary car crash involving Pete’s parents, to the hostile way they have to capture Elliot the dragon, the film spans a mystery, adventure and fantasy that both endears and shocks.

1985: The Last Great Year in Film for Younger Audiences

March 6th, 2015 No comments

Generations of Americans can still remember a time when parents and their kids could go to the multiplex and enjoy original youth-oriented films that weren’t either animated, part of a billion-dollar superhero franchise, or adaptations of overwrought young adult novels.
