“The War With Grandpa”

October 12th, 2020 No comments

Review by John M Delia, Jr.

What would a kid do when their home is invaded and they are banished to the attic? Their whole world has now been shattered and where they have ended up is just plain mean. Would they just take it and live in an environment that might make them feel unwanted or maybe even shammed. Now with all these mixed feelings going on, should they just declare war on this invader, even if it is their Grandpa? Read more…

A modern day twist on Snow White the film Red Shoes and the Seven Dwarfs has been released on Blu-ray and DVD.  The PG rated film is perfect for the whole family providing comical entertainment with some excellent animation.  The story may be a bit challenging for us older folks, but I loved it just the same.

“THE PERSONAL HISTORY OF DAVID COPPERFIELD ” Comedy with Drama

Review by John Delia

A fascinating story, the film The Personal History of David Copperfield is filled with loony characters, adventure, excitement and fantasy. The acting by a well-balanced diverse cast really shines, and the direction by Armando Iannucci who keeps his film lively, creatively modern and touching at times, becomes a big payoff. Now in theaters across the country, seeing it on the big screen makes it even better. Read more…

“UNCLE PECKERHEAD” A Killer Thriller

Written Review by John Delia

(also check out Al McGhee’s video chat with director Matthew John Lawrence here at Your Entertainment Ticket)

When you think of a horror film you expect a lot of mayhem, monsters and ghastly scenes, and in the movie Uncle Peckerhead you get all three. The film targets not only the fear fan, but this one works on another level, hard rock music. All in fun, the movie starts out with a slide BASED ON A TRUE STORY and then proceeds to bring out the ghoul and bloody mess that ensues. The film has been released in select theaters so check your local listings. Read more…

“CRSHD” Clever and Witty

Review by John Delia

Wacky, clever and witty, CRSHD is a film that all millennials will love. Throw in a few Gen-Z’s who are still in High School and you have the right mix. That said, the film even passes the test for those who are curious about what it would be like to live in the age of Instagram. And this cool script leads you into a coming of age hunt for a last chance to lose one’s virginity before the end of the first college year. 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…

‘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…

“EASY DOES IT” Going for the Gold

Review by John Delia

A screwy little film with some intermittent tongue in cheek laughs, Easy Does It attempts to revive the road show flick audience, but it doesn’t have all the right stuff. The script’s hackneyed with the same old goofs, the acting needs an upgrade, and the sets/locations ordinary. That said however, it you have nothing more on TV to watch, it’s a pretty good filler. You may have to have a few and some chips before turning it on.
