Review by John Delia

A fascinating story, the film The Personal History of David Copperfield is filled with loony characters, adventure, excitement and fantasy. The acting by a well-balanced diverse cast really shines, and the direction by Armando Iannucci who keeps his film lively, creatively modern and touching at times, becomes a big payoff. Now in theaters across the country, seeing it on the big screen makes it even better. Read more…

“AIRPLANE”- 40th year now on Blu-ray Steelbook

July 22nd, 2020 No comments

 

Review by John Delia

It’s a classic comedy that still lives on in the minds of those who saw it for the first time in 1980. The movie Airplane! is back again and this time it’s protected in a steel case for the remastered blu-ray, and with some new bonus extras. It may be a bit corny for some audiences of today, but when it came out the tongue-in-cheek masterpiece was a rave by critics and was nominated for a Golden Globe. While some fans found some of the dialog offensive, others laughed and even if it parodied themselves, Airplane!’s idea was to make something that was serious into a satire easing a grim situation by making lite of it. In this case they chose the movie Airport (1970) to lampoon using a script loaded with wit. The film also includes spoofs of the classic films Saturday Night Fever (1977) and From Here to Eternity (1953) as well. Read more…

Review by John Delia

Something for the youngsters over 4, Stardog and Turbocat, an animated film that deals with animal kindness to animals, is now available on VOD and Digital platforms. The story may be an old one, but this approach on delivering the message makes it an adventure that young people can understand. Moms and Dads should watch the film along with the very young so they can explain the significance, but all the adventure should be easily recognizable. Read more…

“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…

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…

Review by John Delia

The movie High Strung Free Dance is jam packed with music, dance and song from show to club to street with a story thread that may feel familiar, but who cares. I love how the film comes together, and each of the characters are heartwarming with roles that are genuine. From high energy to sublime and hip hop to free style the dancers are brilliant, stunning, fluid and magnificent. Whether you are a lover of the dance, a fan of romance or just want to unwind and imagine for few hours, this film is like medicine for the dreamer. It may be something for the ladies, but if you have a man around the house, watch out there’s some very nice eye candy as well. It’s stunning and passionate and now on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD.

Review by John Delia

Maleficent: Mistress of Evil brings a powerhouse of Disney magic that will astound and delight everyone even on their home screens. Filled with so many characters that you will want to stop and count them as they fly by and even freeze frame them to get a better look. The direction is incredible keeping the main actors in character as they work in front of the stage screens. It’s the kind of wonderment that boggles the mind, especially with the opening scenes and later during the battle. Youngsters will enjoy the film and want to see it over and over again. Parents will marvel at the storyline that stretches the imagination beyond the first Maleficent movie. Whether it’s on 4k, Blu-ray or even DVD, the film is seamless and clear. Read more…
