“THE SHADOW OF VIOLENCE” Tense and Brutal

July 30th, 2020 No comments

 

 

 

Review by John Delia

It may be a story plot that gets a bit familiar, but The Shadow of Violence has a different feel to it. A guy has had a tough life as a child and ends up in the home of a drug lord who wants revenge for a wrong doing. The main character finds that he can’t come to grips with carrying out a hit and everything goes south for him. However, this one has some excellent acting, directing and even the cinematography plays a nice part in the film. Read more…

“MR. JONES” Historical and Disturbing

Review by John Delia

Very enlightening and interesting, the movie Mr. Jones brings you back to sometime before the Germans invaded Russia taking them into WWII. The film gets deeply into Russian problems of feeding their country since the Communist run Parliament took over. It also involves Stalin’s draining the Ukraine of all their grain in order to feed the Russian people. It’s about the worst of time and the even darker times of being a vulnerable nation on the brink of war. Read more…

“DREAMLAND” a Fantasy Crime Thriller

Review by John Delia

Wow, this indie film Dreamland came out of nowhere and it really puts the combination of crime/horror/fantasy genres in a very good place. Nicely directed, written and acted, the film takes you into the minds of some very evil protagonists and antagonists. Hard to define who is the wickedest, once the film begins it’s a diabolical whirlwind. Read more…

“THE NIGHT CLERK” Murder with a Twist

Review by John Delia

The drama The Night Clerk takes aim at the box-office with a twisted tale that 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 character. Read more…

“Driven” Living in Overdrive

Review by John Delia

More of a drama than a comedy, the film Driven gets its title from a well-known auto designer who finds himself in deep trouble in this semi-biographical account. The story is based on true facts and if you ever wondered what happened to John DeLorean in the late 1970’s and early 1980’s to disgrace his name, here’s a cool way to find out. Read more…

“Domino” Out for Blood

Review by John Delia Sr

If you are in the mood for a fast moving story that has a lot of action, then Domino should be a good choice. Now it’s the story that really makes it worth the theatrical experience, but even though it has all the elements of an action thriller, the background soundtrack takes a good measure of the energy out of the film.

“Trial by Fire” Based on a True Story

Review by John Delia

Based on an article that ran in “The New Yorker” and the letters from an inmate on Texas’s death row, the film Trial by Fire opens this weekend in wide release. Based on a true story, the film has an edge to it that makes a case against the death penalty. While it’s a narrative and a good production, the subject of the film Cameron Todd Willingham, who denied his guilt of intentionally killing his three toddlers, has been debated in a documentary of the same title that aired in 2010 on PBS’s “Frontline”.

“Half Magic” Conjuring up Love

February 23rd, 2018 No comments

 

 

 

 

Review by John Delia, Sr.

When it comes to women’s sexual empowerment over the years they certainly have the edge as shown in the movie Half Magic. In fact the opening minutes of this very funny romantic comedy even “outs” the P word for vagina. Much like the docudrama Free the Nipple in which the film makes female nudity popular, this film makes the P word an accepted addition to our vocabulary, well maybe. The movie “outs” the word as an empowerment for women. What’s next, using the C word for Penis? Oh, yeah that word’s used by the ladies several times in Half Magic. Read more…

“DOWNSIZING” (Written Film Review & Trailer)

Review by John Delia, Sr.

A comedy that makes a statement about over population, the film Downsizing takes a look at “what if we could make our planet last longer?” The fun science fiction movie take a swipe at global warming by shrinking thousands of people that would use less of everything, including the packing in which it all comes. Nicely acted, the plot even has a special love story involving and unintended romance. Read more…
