THE KING’S MAN Now on 4K Blu-ray

Review by John Delia

If you thought the other two The King’s Man movies were good, it’s time to see the prequel. The film will make your head spin, not only because it’s in 4K home entertainment, but the action is relentless and during it we get to know how the special ops unit all began. Amazing cinematography, special effects and action throughout should blow you away, even in your living room. Some might have said that this prequel should not have been make, but that said this origin story works just as well a standalone. If you want thrills, interesting historical drama and non-stop adventure this film is your cup of British Tea. Read more…

“THE LEDGE” A Fast Paced Thriller

Review by John Delia

In the movie The Ledge, the writer takes very little time with character development and gets right down to the center of the “who what where and why.” Now you may get the impression that this may be problematic to the entertainment value, but you would be wrong as this fine production keeps you on edge to the gut wrenching finale.

If you enjoy films with a sinister plot, good acting and direction, Shattered should do the trick.

“Nightmare Alley” a Crime Thriller

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.

ANTLERS a Gruesome Tale of Horror

October 28th, 2021 No comments

 

 

 

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…

Review by John Delia

Totally immersive, the movie The Last Duel takes you into 14th century France where it deals with wars, the plague and an economical decline for the Kingdom. Entwined, during that period, is a true story of misogyny, a power struggle and a rivalry between Squires. Powerful acting, direction and cinematography delivers a compelling story that makes the 2 and a half hours fly by. Read more…
