“Nightmare Alley” a Crime Thriller

December 16th, 2021 No comments

 

 

 

Review by John Delia

What puts Nightmare Alley over the top is the excellent blend of acting, directing and cinematography. The storyline is morbid and sometimes terrifying as it weaves startling twists throughout the two and a half hours. That said, the element of predictability does creep in, but even though it still remains high as one of the best films for 2021.

Review by John Delia

A surprise filled film, the movie South of Heaven has been released on Blu-ray and DVD for home viewing. The film gets exciting as it moves along with a lot of twist while establishing the characters developed by Director and co-screenwriter Aharon KIeshales. The fast moving story gets emotional while it spellbinds the viewer in its crime based theme with the many unexpected shocks leading to a turbulent finale. Read more…

ANTLERS a Gruesome Tale of Horror

Review By John Delia

A very good effort production wise, but the film Antlers helmed by Scott Cooper gets predictable in his gruesome tale of Mysterious Indigenous folklore. Most of the horror here is the transformations that the characters go through and for that the film is well played out. And his special effects make-up is as good as the characters of Gollum and Lurtz in Lord of the Rings, to give examples, and that’s a good thing for fans. But once you see the images, you’ll see they blend well into the storyline. The audience will be treated to some unexpected jump scares and the CGI of the gory violence should keep the target audience on the edge of their seats. Read more…

THE FRENCH DISPATCH a Lot of Fun

Review by John Delia

If you like the works of Writer/Director Wes Anderson, you’ll love The French Dispatch a quirky, homage to writer’s everywhere. Beyond the reasons for writing the script, there is a lot of fun in store as he treats his audience to a three act play that captivates as it gets played out by an amazing cast. For those who are not into dead pan comedy, creative cinematography, make-up, sets and a lot of old fashioned storytelling, it may be a bit too much whimsy. But, hang in there as much like his The Grand Budapest Hotel that took 4 Oscars and a Golden Globe, this Wes Anderson film is as good for all the same reasons. Read more…

THE GUILTY A Fast Paced Thriller

Review by John Delia

Exciting and edge of your seat compelling, the movie The Guilty starring Jake Gyllenhaal is available Netflix. A “one man show”, the film takes the audience on an explosive heart pounding ride that keeps on going at a fast pace. Helmed by “Training Day” director Antoine Fuqua, he puts as much energy and tension here as he did for that film. Read more…

Review by Ian Delia

Ryan Reynolds says it himself, see this movie in theaters. We’ve all been waiting for a film to be worthy of the big screen since the beginning of the pandemic closed down movie theaters. Well, it’s has been delivered. Free Guy, is an action-packed videogame movie where it’s a NPC (Non-Playable-Character) living within a virtual loop. It’s his life versus the gamers (characters played by the video game players).

Review by John M. Delia, Jr.

The world has become a dangerous place and our protection needs super heroes that will perform any job that needs to be done, even those that may result in their extinction. Now, there is another mission that only one team can complete and that team must be made of warriors that have nothing to lose and everything to gain. They are The Suicide Squad! Some may call the film a bit silly, but then aren’t all of DC’s Squad films famous for that? Just sit back and enjoy the chaos. Read more…

“Lucky” Kill and Repeat

Review by John Delia, Sr.

Intentionally confusing, but very farfetched, the film Lucky takes a long time to set up before it lets you down. If anything positive comes from the film it does champion women who do fight back. Read more…

“John and the Hole” a Creative Psychological Drama

August 7th, 2021 No comments

 

 

 

Review by John Delia, Sr.

Quirky and sometimes scary the film John and the Hole tells the tale of one teen at odds with his family. It’s also an eye opener, a caveat of sort that a psychological situation by a misguided youth can turn into an explosive event. Nicely written, directed and played out by a fine cast of characters, the script, while not a true story, works for those who may see something within their own family. Others who like a good drama, will keep them on the edge to the creative finale. Read more…

“Old” Newest From M. Night Shyamalan

July 23rd, 2021 No comments

 

 

Review by Thomas Delia

“Old” is the newest feature film from famous suspense horror director M Night Shyamalan. The movie invites audiences onto the excursion from hell as select families are invited to a secluded beach where, unbeknownst to them, time runs much faster than normal. As usual for an M Night film, the director himself makes a cameo as the bus driver dropping off his own characters onto the dangerous beach. The audience is then invited to follow a diverse group of vacationers as their body’s age with incredible speed on a cove that looks straight out of a vacation catalogue. There is the classic “M Night twist” at the end that tries to give an explanation for what the audience is forced to sit through, but it is barely worth the wait. Read more…
