CURSED FILMS – Tragic and Creepy

August 20th, 2020 No comments

 

 

Review by John Delia

Frightening, heart-rending and revealing Cursed Films becomes very compelling as it entertains in a morbid kind of way. Decades ago several films were labeled as being hexed due to mysterious deaths and accidents surrounding their release or within months of it. The tragedies had many affects and some of the films actually became iconic attracting others beyond the horror fan audience to see the films. Watching it brought back many memories of the now classic films, many of which are in my library. Read more…

BEHIND THE LINE: ESCAPE TO DUNKIRK – Different & Exciting

August 19th, 2020 No comments

 

 

 

Review by John Delia

Thrilling and compelling the movie Behind the Line: Escape to Dunkirk puts you in the middle of a life and death situation. The production value depicting the initial battle, the barracks, jail and farm look very good. The storyline, although a work of fiction, shows another kind of battle to win freedom for a squad of British soldiers. Read more…

“THE OUTPOST” 5 out of 5 Stars on Blu-ray

August 17th, 2020 No comments

 

Review by John Delia

“In 2006, the US Army established a series of outposts in Northern Afghanistan to promote counterinsurgency. The intent was to connect with the locals and to stop the flow of weapons and Taliban fighters from Pakistan. One of these was PRT Kamdesh. It was built in a remote valley completely surrounded by The Hindu Kush Mountains. One analyst said it may as well be called “Camp Custer”. His reasoning was simple and official.” – Filmmaker

Just making a statement that a film is based on a true story is one thing, but when it’s verified, you see a movie a bit differently. The screenplay’s shocking battle and the helplessness of the US Army fighters depicted in the movie The Outpost, is absolutely cringing. But, cringing isn’t even a strong enough word for it. This film shows the ability and tactfulness of our military under fire, but more so, the heroism. Read more…

Review by John Delia

A pretty cool concept the Sci-fi Adventure G-LOC takes you into space with an astronaut stuck in his damaged space craft. The storyline is original, the acting very good and the direction by Tom Paton who helmed the film Black Ops makes it exciting. If you like space adventures that are out of the ordinary, then check this one out on DVD, VOD or Digital. Read more…

“AIRPLANE”- 40th year now on Blu-ray Steelbook

July 22nd, 2020 No comments

 

Review by John Delia

It’s a classic comedy that still lives on in the minds of those who saw it for the first time in 1980. The movie Airplane! is back again and this time it’s protected in a steel case for the remastered blu-ray, and with some new bonus extras. It may be a bit corny for some audiences of today, but when it came out the tongue-in-cheek masterpiece was a rave by critics and was nominated for a Golden Globe. While some fans found some of the dialog offensive, others laughed and even if it parodied themselves, Airplane!’s idea was to make something that was serious into a satire easing a grim situation by making lite of it. In this case they chose the movie Airport (1970) to lampoon using a script loaded with wit. The film also includes spoofs of the classic films Saturday Night Fever (1977) and From Here to Eternity (1953) as well. Read more…

“SECRET WEAPON” a Mission of No Return

July 21st, 2020 No comments

 

Review By John Delia

An interesting view of WWII the movie Secret Weapon involves a mission of no return. The true story comprises a little known mission that, because of its goal, saved many Russian lives from the German invasion. The locations, costumes/wardrobe, firearms, German trucks and much more adds to the storyline giving it a measure of realism. The film does give the feel of the movie The Dirty Dozen, but considering the low budget production, does not come up to that level. Just as a suggestion, the film is best seen played in Russian with English subtitles to get better expression from the character roles and more realism. It does however, have an option of English dubbing that actually isn’t very convincing playing it that way. Read more…

“THE ROOM” A Twisted Mystery Thriller

Review by John Delia

Not since Stanley Kubrick’s The Shinning has there been a disturbing film come as close as The Room. It has all the elements with a story so diabolical that it should keep you glued to the screen. And you’ll never out guess this twisted tale that teases and tortures right down to the last moment. The Eerie music helps a lot and the sets are perfect for this creative original horror flick for fans. Directing, acting, production value and storyline make The Room a horror fan’s best nightmare.

“WELL GROOMED” To Dye Fur :-)

July 19th, 2020 No comments

 

 

 

Review by John Delia

A fun and furry documentary, Well Groomed takes you into the world of colorful dog styling and it’s mesmerizing. Director, writer and producer Rebecca Stern follows four of the top dog artists as they clip, dye and design the hair on long haired pooches. It’s very fascinating watching the competition between the chosen four, but more so the amazement of what can be created with a scissors. Add to that a lot of safe colorant made especially for those that want to make their dogs a special canvas. Read more…
