Review by John Delia

Mysterious and intensifying the film Archive takes you into the world of a cybernetic engineer who tries to duplicate his dead wife. Nicely crafted with futuristic sets, seamless computer graphics and much more, the movie entertains much like the film Ex- Machina that wowed sci-fi fans in 2015. In this sci-fi thriller there’s more than meets the eye and as each scene develops, things start to get dangerous leading to an ending far beyond what you may think. Read more…

“THE TOBACCONIST” Compelling and Thought Provoking

Review by John Delia

A very arresting and alarming film, the compelling movie The Tobacconist puts you into the thick of things as the Nazis move to blanket all of Austria politically. Although allowing most all people to continue to work and run business as usual, in the late 1930’s the Jewish and Gypsy population were dealt a blow being stripped of their voting rights. It was the start of dark times for the two groups and this story depicts the oppression and the civil discord connected with Nazi discrimination notably in Vienna where the film takes place. – “Some of the information in this paragraph was obtained from Wikipedia’s history of Austria.” Read more…

Review by John Delia

As each scenario plays out we get closer and closer to the reality in Volition. The film is a science fiction thriller that twists and turns to the final chapter. Well-acted and directed, once the storyline gets into your head you’ll be wanting more. It may be an indie, but the production value proves differently. If you like movies that create a mystery, has a lot of drama and maybe at least a smidgen of realism, check this one out on Digital and other streaming platforms. Read more…

“WHERE SLEEPING DOGS LIE” An Action Drama

Review by John Delia

Off the leash, but not in a good way, the film Where Sleeping Dogs Lie gets so convoluted that it leaves the viewer with nothing entertaining. I can be pretty easy on indie films at times, but I found this film predictable, hackneyed and all over the place. I am not sure that the script was not just an adlib from beginning to end, but it sure looked like it. Read more…

A very cool sick and twisted horror comedy Two Heads Creek takes you on the road to Australia for a reunion. Nicely written, acted and directed, if you like wicked bloody action, this one will have you rolling on the floor. A bit over the top, but who’s counting heads in this sordid tale from the “Down Under”? Read more…

“BABYTEETH” Sad and Emotional

Review by John Delia

Very sad and sometimes upsetting the film Babyteeth tells the story of a teenager with cancer and her wanting to have been loved by a boy and to make love before the end of her life. The acting is very good, but the story is all over the place. Whether it is intentional or a ploy as part of the plot, unfortunately it doesn’t work. What it does for sure is make the platitudinous story drag and lose some of its intended meaning. Read more…

“7500” Terror in the Sky

Review by John Delia

A very intense drama, the movie 7500 jumps off running with nonstop terrorism aboard an airliner. The film is well made as it grabs you from the start so you know what is taking place, sets up the dire situation, then puts you in the cockpit with a terrorist and the crew. It’s a tragic happening reminiscent of other real incidents that have taken place in the world. One of the better made films about a hijacking, it will have you on the edge of your seat. Pop a lot of popcorn as you will need it not to chew on your fingernails. Read more…

Review by John Delia

A heartfelt film, The Etruscan Smile follows a man who wants to make amends and finds the love he never knew he had. The movie gets very touching, a bit maudlin, but for the most part an inspirational movie with some lighthearted comedy that’s nicely acted, directed and produced. If you like films that have a human interest plot, than check out this motion picture that’s now on Blu-ray, DVD and even VOD platforms. Read more…
