“TAPE” Stolen Dreams

March 25th, 2020 No comments

 

 

 

 

Review by John Delia

Creepy and candid the true story Tape tells an explicit tale of the casting couch. It may not be a definitive look at recent events, but what does come to pass is a realistic view of one woman’s bane affected by a scam. Its show business at its lowest level of taking advantage of a young movie star wannabe who thinks she has struck gold. Openly informative while entertaining as a narrative, the film should scare sex tape scammers while warning bogus casting directors that it won’t be as easy as it was to steal ones dreams.

Review by John Delia

A very good mystery that has a lot of intriguing buildup, Intrigo: Death of an Author, is now on Blu-ray and DVD. Nicely directed and acted, the film digs deep into a relationship that is falling apart and puts the protagonist on a road to finding the remedy to correct the mistakes he made. Set in a background of beautiful vistas, the movie becomes a puzzle that challenges the viewer to take sides, then decide whether they were right or wrong at the very end. If you like your dramas with a lot of mystery and a few twists, then this one makes for a good night with microwave popcorn and your favorite libation. Read more…

Review by John Delia

Very, very VERY scary, the film M.O.M. Mothers of Monsters comes to VOD after a short theatrical run. The drama involves what America has extreme concerns about, the child that doesn’t fit in with others and has violent tendencies. Although the film is fictional, it does somewhat emulate those responsible for some of the most diabolical school shootings in America. If you would like to go into the world of Jacob and Abby, then search out this film now playing at select theaters and Video on Demand. Read more…

“THE WAY BACK” A Fight for Life

Review by John Delia

Taking it to the net, Ben Affleck gives his all for the camera as a man who has hit bottom. It’s a performance that brings out the serious side of a character and not anything like his superhero turns in the barrel. But, it’s what the doctor ordered as its classic Affleck and a joy to watch. If you want to see a comeback to cheer for, it’s Ben Affleck in The Way Back. Read more…

Nicely fashioned and certainly a topic for today’s climate of finding credible news, the film Run This Town opens this weekend.

Review by John Delia

An interesting view of segregation and discrimination, the film The Banker opens this weekend. The acting superb, direction pin point and the story line one of the better this year. It’s a part of history where bold chances by the black community paid off leading to an era of change for the better. Take a chance on this one and you will be astounded by its compelling look into those that gave their all to start a transformation in America. Read more…

“ESCAPE FROM PRETORIA” A Taught Prison Drama

Review by John Delia

Back on the big screen, Daniel Radcliffe takes on the leading role in Escape from Pretoria. However, while his performance is very good, the film loses some momentum with a lot of repetitious scenes. Even though many prison movies tend to drag out the inmate to inmate drama, this one lags a bit too much. Also, apartheid, the event from where the story stems gets minimized in the storyline. Still, for the thriller escape part of the true story, it’s well worth watching. Read more…

“THE SONATA” Mysterious and Haunting

Review by John Delia

A cool film that mixes music with fear, The Sonata takes you into a world surrounded by evil and death. Nicely written to move along at a slow pace, the production, location and the sets play a big part in this mystery for fans of the genre. It’s the kind of movie that you can relax at home alone or with a loved one on a dark evening with nowhere to go. But beware, The Sonata is a cunning film that’s best served with company. Read more…

“THE DARE” Horror on VOD

Review by John Delia

Very ghastly and savage the horror flick The Dare is now available on VOD. The film reminded me of the first SAW movie especially the opening, but after that it’s a pretty good original plot. The indie team really used their main set well where most of the action takes place, but the horror scale raises the needle only about medium. If you are a fan of horror mystery, then you may want to check this one out. Read more…

“BLOOD ON HER NAME” No Nonsense Thriller

February 27th, 2020 No comments

 

 

 

By most high budget standards, the indie Blood on her Name would be a nice complement were it in that category, because the story, performances and production value here out shines some of the big budget biggies. Gripping and exciting, it’s one of those special movies that works with an upcoming star, a talented director and a gifted writer. The no nonsense thriller gets to the bottom of the story right away, before compelling the audience with a lot of toppings that complete the cake. As for the storyline here, sometimes bringing a very good A game to a production makes it easy to put the puzzle together without having all the edges in line first. Read more…
