“STREETLIGHT HARMONIES” BRINGING US TOGETHER

Review by John Delia

“Music has no color, this is about love, it’s for the love of the music.” Sammy Strain – Little Anthony & The Imperials

A sweetheart of a film, the movie Streetlight Harmonies takes you on a journey into the past accompanied by some of the greatest names in music. Not just the ordinary, but those who started in the 50’s with street corner doo-wop and made it big the hard way. If you know the names Anthony Gourdine, Fred Parris, Terry Johnson, Willie Winfield, Jimmy Merchant, Vito Picone, Eddie Rich, La La Brooks, Leon Hughes, Brian McKnight and others appearing in this documentary, then this film is right up your alley.

“16 BARS” Music for Freedom

Review by John Delia

Finding a way to be free may seem easy for some, but those that lose their way find it very difficult to earn back their freedom. That’s the premise of the documentary 16 Bars. But even though they do make it out of the prisons that hold them, learning how to not return to incarceration helps to defeat recidivism. Looking into the prison life using an experimental idea, Todd “Speech” Thomas goes into the confines of Richmond Prison to offer some light at the end of the tunnel. Read more…

Review by John Delia

There have been several films and TV movies about Judy Garland and her sometimes troubled life, but in Judy a snippet of the final months of her life gives one last look at the “Over the Rainbow” wonder. Nicely directed and starring Renee Zellweger as the singer and actor, the movie Judy adds a nice farewell. I hear Oscar in the wind. Read more…

“Blinded by the Light” Teen View

August 15th, 2019 No comments

 

 

Review by Ian Delia

In all honesty I’d have to say that Blinded by the Light is an average movie with connections to the teenage generation. Unfortunately the first 30 minutes is full of predictable ups and downs of friendships, desires and family angst, making it a bit uneventful. The half hour intro leads you to question why one should even continue watching. Beyond that, however I did like the music, dancing and drama that followed even though it’s foreseeable and that the message will be one that’s obvious. “Be your own self and you will eventually come out of your cocoon and fly like the butterfly you choose to be”.

Review by John M. Delia, Jr.

Sex, drugs, and alcohol are the theme of any rock artist during the 60’s through current time. This story is not any different from any other musician’s sad addiction to fame and what it can bring to their stardom. Except that this man, expresses his true self to the world and comes out a winner in the end. Read more…
