“BECKY” Kicks Ass!

June 1st, 2020 No comments

 

Review by John Delia

“There was a little girl, who had a little curl, right in the middle of her forehead. When she was good, she was very good indeed, but when she was bad she was horrid.” Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

One of the best thrillers this year Becky turns her world upside down and sideways. Nicely directed and written the incredible tale takes you into the mind of a 13-year-old who is hell bent on saving her father by turning her sorrow into some quick thinking vengeance. Don’t mess with this pissed off teen! On Demand and Digital June 5th. Read more…

Review by John Delia

Opening tomorrow in your living rooms is Villain a gritty crime thriller with a lot of disturbing violence. The movie does have some good directing, acting and a decent storyline so it should be considered for fans of extreme crime thrillers. What’s good is that the action stars early and gets very compelling so you won’t get bored. 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…

“ROBERT THE BRUCE” Historical Tale

April 24th, 2020 No comments

 

 

Review by John Delia

The map of Great Brittan can be a bit confusing as it has minor separations much like Europe. To the north the land mass of England borders Scotland now a country of its own but still under the rule the Queen of Great Britain. It is separated by a border much like a state in America. Scotland became independent from England for a time following civil war with Robert the Bruce who declared Scotland’s sovereignty. Nearly 200 years ago, that point of history is the subject of Robert the Bruce’s rise from near death to lead his people to independence. Read more…

“FINAL KILL” an Action Thriller

April 14th, 2020 No comments

 

Review by John Delia

Not much here that you haven’t already seen in other comical crime films, as Final Kill falls below the line of providing anything creative and new. The budget must have been low as it shows in the production value and final cut. And the very predictable storyline didn’t help it very much either. However, if you want to see Danny Trejo in yet another cameo role, then you may want to check this out on DVD or download it from Amazon prime video for a good laugh. Read more…

“SPY INTERVENTION” A Wacky Comedy

February 13th, 2020 No comments

 

 

Review by John Delia

Wacky spy comedies are fun, especially if they have an exciting plot with many surprises and an unexpected outcome. The movie Spy Intervention has a story that’s a bit different than the usual, it’s much like saving Queen Elizabeth (The Naked Gun) or stopping evil (Spy Hard) or even 2015’s Spy with Melissa McCarthy tracking down an arms dealer. Spy Intervention doesn’t have the star power to make it a blockbuster, but the actors try very hard to please. Not hilarious, but certainly very funny, the movie fills the void that has been absent of late. Read more…

“HELL ON THE BORDER” A Western Thriller

February 10th, 2020 No comments

 

 

Review by John Delia

A pretty good indie, the exciting film Hell on the Border: The Chronicles of Bass Reeves has been released on Blu-ray, DVD, Ultra HD and Digital HD. Paced with excitement and drama it’s not an ordinary western, because with the fact that it’s based on the true story makes the slice of life more personal. Starring David Gyasi in the lead role, it’s a chance for him to shine and he does here. As a black man in the Wild West 1800’s the semi biography of Bass Reeves, who put his mark on America fighting the lawless, becomes an adventure to remember. Read more…

“Birds of Prey” A Kickass Fan Feast

Review by John Delia

One of the best films in recent past for action fans, Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) comes to the screen with a kickass movie that should please the pulp fiction fan base. It’s a follow up to DC Comics’ Suicide Squad for one of their characters, Harley Quinn, and the start of a probable spinoff series. In this episode it explains Harley Quinn’s past and her failing love life that had fallen apart when Joker decided to part ways. But, you can’t keep this wild DC Comic character down as you’ll find out in Birds of Prey. Read more…

“THE HUNT FOR VLAD THE IMPALER” Action Adventure

February 4th, 2020 No comments

 

Review by John Delia

Bringing you back to the 15th Century with a historical action thriller, the movie The Hunt for Vlad the Impaler is now available on VOD, Blu-ray and DVD. The film has some good acting, direction and production value, especially the costuming and special effects. The filmmakers do explain the history a bit, but I have not fact checked it for the opening dialogue on the subject. Actually most of the audiences that will watch the film will be more attuned to the warring factions and the bloody battles. The film has been dubbed in English so it may throw you off a bit, but for the most part they use adequate voice overs that are equal to each of the characters persona. Get caught up in the story early and you will enjoy it as intended. Read more…

“NATION’S FIRE” An Action Thriller

January 20th, 2020 No comments

 

Review by John Delia

The indie Nation’s Fire is not half bad considering what’s playing on the crowded cable systems that are getting very competitive for the VOD market. But, what pushes this film over the competition is the recklessness of the plot, the acting and a director who’s knee deep in the Genre. Working with some notables like Bruce Dern, Gil Bellows, Lou Ferrigno Jr., Kristen Renton and the up and coming Krista Grotte who steals the show, Thomas J. Churchill brings a good offering. The film plays out to an older crowd that likes high powered action and not a lot of superfluous dialogue. But, most anyone from 21 to 60 should enjoy all the chaos and revenge. The production crew gets the job done in spite of the noticeable low budget. Read more…
