Review by John Delia

Actually very good, the movie Clover takes you on a wild ride as two brothers and a young lady try to get themselves free from the mob. It’s very well made, has some excellent twists and it’s not only a thriller, but a bit comical as well. Once the action starts, it never ends until the last twisted scene. Now available on VOD.

It’s complicated, but that’s a good thing for the film Banana Split a comedy with a romantic twist.

“ONWARD” A Mom’s Opinion

Review by Susan Phillips

Before modern day in the land of mermaids, unicorns, fairies and centaurs, wizards used magic to help them in their day-to-day life. But learning magic was difficult, and as time flew by with the invention of more modern luxuries, the ways of the wizard slowly disappeared. Instead of using a spell to add light to a room it was now easier to flip a switch and have a light bulb turn on. Now in current times however, the brothers Ian and Barley Lightfoot discover that magic still exists and they can use it to make a dream come true in Onward. Read more…

“GREED” Mesmerizingly Silly

Review by John Delia

A showcase for actor comedian Steve Coogan the movie GREED enters the crowding theater list and it’s actually pretty good if you like wacky comedy. What does save the film from imploding within however, is the drama part that takes the film up a notch. The screenplay about a narcissistic superficial new money big spender takes you into his world and makes greed look normal. From the looks of the production, this wannabe mainstream flick could just make itself some box office bucks in areas that enjoy British humor. Read more…

“NO OFFENSE: COMPLETE COLLECTION” Crime and Comedy

March 1st, 2020 No comments

 

 

 

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.

“ONWARD” A GREAT ADVENTURE

Exciting, adventurous, heartwarming, compelling and most of all finding dad in all of us, Disney/PIXAR crushes it again with Onward. It’s a tribute to fathers and brothers who have to take the role of the matriarch in the household everywhere. Growing up is hard enough, but with the absence of a father figure it makes it even more difficult. The story here shows how one fatherless family finds a way to bring hope, faith and trust in oneself even during the darkest times. 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…

“A SERIAL KILLER’S GUIDE TO LIFE” now on Digital HD

Review by John Delia

Quirky and twisted, A Serial Killer’s Guide to Life is one movie that will keep you wincing throughout the 81 minutes of mindboggling carnage. Once it gets started the movie becomes a roller coaster ride of death that’s not stopping to look back. It’s a very dark comedy and the actors are excellent at depicting the insanity as it rolls along to a surprise ending. Did I say the film is sadistic? The film is billed as another Thelma and Louise, but those two ladies in that movie were girl scouts compared to Lou and Valerie in A Serial Killer’s Guide to Life. Read more…
