“THE NIGHT CLERK” now on DVD

April 4th, 2020 No comments

 

 

 

Review by John Delia

A twisted tale The Night Clerk is now available on DVD and it’s a stunner. The film should have audiences engrossed from the very start to its surprise finale. While all the clues are laid out for you before midpoint, the writer/director holds back just enough in this mystery to make the movie a winner. Acting is sharp and pin point, the direction strong and impeccable, and the credible protagonist in the plot makes for the perfect thriller. Read more…

“STAR WARS: THE RISE OF SKYWALKER” Now on Video

Review by John M. Delia Jr.

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker is the last chapter of one of the greatest Sci-fi space sagas of all time. After 42 years Disney/Lucas Films brings the series to a conclusion in this nicely wrapped finale. And like in 1977 when it all began, the exploits and realistic special effects still amaze. The space adventure continues with the same credo, “everyone seeks the belief that good will always triumph over evil” that’s been carried on since the beginning to the final chapter. Bringing in a new set of heroes in this finale, that are fighting for the same causes as their predecessors, the film comes to a brilliant end. Now released on various formats from DVD to 4K for home or travel it fits nicely into your video library. Read more…

“INTRIGO: DEATH OF AN AUTHOR” Now on Blu-ray

Review by John Delia

A very good mystery that has a lot of intriguing buildup, Intrigo: Death of an Author, is now on Blu-ray and DVD. Nicely directed and acted, the film digs deep into a relationship that is falling apart and puts the protagonist on a road to finding the remedy to correct the mistakes he made. Set in a background of beautiful vistas, the movie becomes a puzzle that challenges the viewer to take sides, then decide whether they were right or wrong at the very end. If you like your dramas with a lot of mystery and a few twists, then this one makes for a good night with microwave popcorn and your favorite libation. Read more…

“THE TEN COMMANDMENTS” Remastered on Blu-ray

Review by John Delia

Now in one set, the 1923 silent version and the 1956 full color production of the all-time classic The Ten Commandments by Director Cecil B. DeMille. Both films have been fully restored and presented on Blu-ray for the best possible presentation. Released in a special book with three Blu-ray discs and 16 pages of rare photos the Digibook with 3 discs inside. The 16 pages are of rare photos that include shots from the movie, behind the scenes and the lines waiting to see the 1956 New York World Premiere. It’s a bit of nostalgia that the older folks will recall and it should amaze today’s movie fans as well. Read more…

Review by John Delia

A cool film that mixes music with fear, The Sonata takes you into a world surrounded by evil and death. Nicely written to move along at a slow pace, the production, location and the sets play a big part in this mystery for fans of the genre. It’s the kind of movie that you can relax at home alone or with a loved one on a dark evening with nowhere to go. But beware, The Sonata is a cunning film that’s best served with company. Read more…

“CAROL OF THE BELLS” a Heartwarming Movie

Review by John Delia

Heartwarming and inspirational the movie Carol of the Bells is perfect for everyone. Nicely acted, directed and presented, the film gets right to the center of one person’s life that will affect many. It’s not often you find a gem like this one and it clicks like the recent The Peanut Butter Falcon. Both films show that audiences can experience love in amazing ways. Look for Carol of the Bells on Home Video or Demand from your local cable company or streaming service. Make sure you have some Kleenex handy, especially if you thought your life had some things you wish could have been able to fix. Read more…

“NO OFFENSE: COMPLETE COLLECTION” Crime and Comedy

Review by John Delia

A snappy little comedy/drama No Offense reminds a bit of TV’s Brooklyn Nine-Nine, but with less humor and more action. The series has a lot of serious overtones with some excellent creative episodes that are compelling. The series will have you binging several chapters or even more if you have the time. The characters have love and hate changing attitudes throughout the 16.5 hours of police angst and power struggles. You’ll get to know the main players in chapter one of season one and follow them as they risk their lives, solve crimes, commit errors and find that love and job commitment do not go hand in hand.

“THE DARE” Horror on VOD

Review by John Delia

Very ghastly and savage the horror flick The Dare is now available on VOD. The film reminded me of the first SAW movie especially the opening, but after that it’s a pretty good original plot. The indie team really used their main set well where most of the action takes place, but the horror scale raises the needle only about medium. If you are a fan of horror mystery, then you may want to check this one out. Read more…
