“THE RHYTHM SECTION” Thrills on Blu-ray

April 26th, 2020 No comments

 

 

 

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…

Review by John Delia

It’s complicated, but that’s a good thing for the film Banana Split a comedy with a romantic twist. Nicely acted, directed and with high marks for production, the film takes you on a journey of heartbreak and heartthrob. It’s your turn to cheer for the opposing team, but only if you see yourself in the roles of these coming of age teens. 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…

Review by John Delia

An action thriller The Courier is now on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD, it’s a screamer. The starts with action, pauses with dialogue so you have the necessary information to digest, then takes off on the wildest ride of your life. Holding the film together is an amazing performance by Olga Kurylenko reminiscent of the action in the John Wick series and her tough persona in James Bond “Quantum of Solace”. If you like physical films then this actioner should be on the top of your list. Read more…

“Waves” Love and Drama

Review by John Delia

Releasing the film Waves in the midst of the year’s best films is a huge gamble for the indie film. But, if the movie does get a following it should outlast several of the block busters. The film is one of those that grows on you as you leave the theater, even to the point of some challenging discussions on the choices the lead roles make. Read more…

“Tone-Deaf” a Hellish Nightmare

Review by John Delia

Very brutal, the horror flick Tone-Deaf takes you into the confines of a hellish nightmare. Like most slasher films, this one follows the same formula of trapping someone in a secluded place and taunting them until the final coup de grace. The twist does make the film a bit better than some, but still just a bit above average. Read more…

“Ready or Not” Blood Runs Red

Review by John Delia

Just when you think you have seen every way a person can get killed in a horror flick, up pops Ready or Not. It’s one of the most diabolical blood baths that I’ve seen in several years. The movie’s a comedy however, and it does play out that way making the film one of the better of the genre. Nicely acted and directed, yet predictable, it’s how it gets to the end that’s the rollercoaster ride of ups and downs that entertains. Think the movie Get Out with lots more of the wicked craziness.

“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…

“Booksmart” Teen View

Review by Ian Delia, Teen Writer

Booksmart is one of the funniest movies of the year so far, but the year is still young. Although I did like the film quite a bit because I, and many others, can relate to the fact that there are high school students who do have fun and also do good in school. Then there are the hard working students who don’t go to parties and end up at the same colleges as the others. And the film makes that a standout point. Read more…
