‘Showgirls’ gets a Reprieve in “YOU DON’T NOMI”

Review by John Delia

If you were of age in the 1990’s and a fan of film, you probably checked out the movie Showgirls (1995), especially if you were male between the ages of 17 to 34. It was rated NC-17 for flesh and sex and the rating didn’t stop a lot of underage teens from sneaking a look after paying for a movie ticket to see Batman Forever. Popular for the wrong reasons however, the film received the designation “flop” for the poor box-office take of $20 million with a price tag of $45 million. The critic reviews mocked the film for its content and storyline with special attention to the gratuitous nudity. Read more…

“SURVIVE THE NIGHT” Good Character Depiction

July 18th, 2020 No comments

 

Review by John Delia

This home invasion crime film starts out with a good plot, but gets a bit too familiar as it delves into the lives of a doctor’s family who get caught up in a life and death situation. Although some of the character depiction are pretty good and one especially spot on, the story is way below actor Bruce Willis’s pay grade. If you can’t overlook a couple of out “impossible” scenes however, the Survive the Night title may be your reaction as well. Read more…

Gritty and horrifying the film Body Cam takes you into the lives of police officers that find themselves tracking a mystical killer.

A fairly good action film, Force of Nature develops around a hurricane about to touch down in Puerto Rico. Caught in the big wind are a couple of police officers, an art thief and a retired detective who have to fight their way out of an arrest gone bad during the intimidating danger closing in on them.

Review by John Delia

Are you ready for this? South Park complete season #23 presents Tegridy Farms. It’s where anything goes and where the hemp is high and daddy wants to get rich. Take the tour in this three disc Blu-ray set with all ten episodes and a pilot. It’s the usual best with the unrated version not holding back, so either watch it raw or get out the earmuffs to avoid a lot of rude and crude language. Read more…

Review by John Delia

A heartfelt film, The Etruscan Smile follows a man who wants to make amends and finds the love he never knew he had. The movie gets very touching, a bit maudlin, but for the most part an inspirational movie with some lighthearted comedy that’s nicely acted, directed and produced. If you like films that have a human interest plot, than check out this motion picture that’s now on Blu-ray, DVD and even VOD platforms. Read more…

“FRIDAY THE 13TH” 40TH Anniversary Steelbook

June 15th, 2020 No comments

Review by John Delia

Now here’s a cool home video for those who like horror thriller movies, Friday the 13th (1980) the 40th Anniversary of the original release uncut in a Steelbook Blu-ray with Digital code. It has a long list of special features, a face-lift for the film and sound pumped up to tickle your audio systems. The film’s biggest accomplishment was the paranoia that the film created with audiences leaving theaters and looking behind them before entering their cars at night. Or even looking under their bed before going to sleep. Well at an early age it did that for me anyway and it took a couple of days to not think about it anymore. Read more…

Review by John Delia

Very campy and a bit over the top, the film One Cut of the Dead is out on DVD and a DVD/Blu-ray Steelbook. The film tells the story of a zombie takeover at a deserted water plant as the director is making a movie about zombies. It’s very unique and a fun watch if you can stick with it. If you like the absurd, than this comedy/horror flick may just be your cup of Saki. Read more…

“CREEPSHOW: Season One” Tales of Terror

Review by John Delia

Definitely a guilty pleasure, the series Creepshow has released their first Season on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital. Yes it’s very creepy as the title suggests and it even has a lot of cool stories that are totally ludicrous in a good way to make you laugh. What makes this collective body of work extra special however, is the comic book style introductions and the very hideous monsters you’ll be exposed to. You’ll want to watch it a second time in about 6 months. Read more…
