Review By John Delia

The Water Man is a very good film for teens, pre-teens and even the older folks who love a well written story that involves a mystery adventure. This one has excellent direction, superb performances and a script that rivals similar tales of determination to achieve a different result in the face of a grave illness. Now on Blu-ray and DVD it’s well worth the watch. 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…

Review by John Delia

A mystery thriller centering on the pre-WWII invasion of Great Britain, Six Minutes to Midnight follows one of the most insidious plans of Hitler’s dictatorship. Nicely filmed, directed and written, the film has an acting tour-de-force that makes their characters believable. Not a documentary, but based on true events account of Hitler’s strategy is what makes the film historical. If you are looking for a good drama that keeps the tension high, this 99 minute film should get you involved and provide some excellent distraction from your day. Read more…

“THE RENTAL” A Killer of a Thriller

Review by John Delia

A few days ago we posted a review of one of the best horror flicks this year and I hold to that opinion. However, The Rental that opens tomorrow is equally as good with all the trappings of being even a tad better. The film sets up its audience in a cunning way to hide any future happenings in a mystery that takes an odd twist as the credits roll. Two in a row shows the power of some independents that with a help of good directing can deliver excellent movies to their fan base. Read more…

“SOMETIMES ALWAYS NEVER” A Sweet Film with Heart

July 10th, 2020 No comments

 

 

Review by John Delia

A British humor film titled Sometimes Always Never is a bit dull for us Americans for about the first 15 minutes until you get used to their dry banter and silly antics. It’s the type of comedy that may seem uninviting, but as this drama plays out the wisdom, warmth of family and heartfelt feeling, it grabs hold and never lets go to the final curtain. Some may see themselves in the characters and maybe wish they had made a few different decisions in life, while others could see the error in their ways when dealing with their children. Read more…

Review by John Delia

The mystery thriller Inheritance takes the stage on VOD and it’s a killer! Nicely acted and directed, the film moves along at a good pace getting the audience involved in the plot early on with a death in the family before getting to a critical point in the storyline. From there on out it’s a barn-burner to a twisted finale that kicks butt. Read more…

Review by John Delia

If you are looking for a good mystery with a few twists leading up to a surprise ending, then The Postcard Killings should do the trick. Taken from a “Best Seller” novel by James Patterson and Liza Marklund, the movie is nicely directed, well-acted and the production value looks high end. With not much to choose from due to the corona virus, the Blu-ray or DVD provides a good night of entertainment. Read more…

“INTRIGO: DEAR AGNES” Death and Friends

May 6th, 2020 No comments

 

 

Review by John Delia

A cagey mystery that has some odd twists, Intrigo: Dear Agnes is the second in a trilogy by director Daniel Alfredson. The film has some very good acting and directing that takes you into the interesting story involving lust, money and a strained friendship. The screenplay is not predicated on having seen the first in the series and plays out independently of any information from the first. Read more…

“THE RHYTHM SECTION” Thrills on Blu-ray

Review by John Delia

In the movie business it’s hard to make a hitman thriller with something new and exciting. The Rhythm Section gives it a try and actually does put a twist on the popular genre. In the place of a male protagonist a female takes the lead in a quest for revenge and settling the score. What makes this film nicely different is Blake Lively the sweetheart of TV’s “Gossip Girl” who goes from dainty to dangerous. If you like James Bond thrillers, try The Rhythm Section now on Blu-ray/DVD combo pack, Blu-ray, DVD, Digital HD, VOD. Read more…
