“UNHINGED” Off the Chain Madness

August 21st, 2020 No comments

 

 

 

Review by John Delia

Out today at movie theaters is the film Unhinged. Its lessons on how to commit road rage and how to overcome your worst fear of it. Well, yes it is a film with an off the chain killer who wants to teach an impatient driver a lesson in manners, but he decides to carry it a bit too far. When you get in your seat in the auditorium at the theater, and as the movie starts with the opening scene, take a couple of deep breaths, grip the seat arms on each side of you and be ready for one hell of a ride.

“THE BURNT ORANGE HERESY” A Gripping Thriller

Review by John Delia

Very Alfred Hitchcockesque the movie The Burnt Orange Heresy enters movie houses around the country. The right venue for the film, the story is gripping and provides some unexpected action excitement. Much like Hitchcock the film has twists and a story that will have you spellbound.

Professed Art Critic James Figueras (Claes Bang) is living in Milan, Italy and gives lectures to budding writers and art lovers. At one such address Berenice Hollis (Elizabeth Debicki) introduces herself and the two hit it off. After an evening of sex James asks her to attend a meeting with him at the opulent home of Joseph Cassidy (Mick Jagger), an affluent art dealer. While there Cassidy takes a liking to the Berenice and then has a private conversation with James. Read more…

“THE OUTPOST” 5 out of 5 Stars on Blu-ray

August 17th, 2020 No comments

 

Review by John Delia

“In 2006, the US Army established a series of outposts in Northern Afghanistan to promote counterinsurgency. The intent was to connect with the locals and to stop the flow of weapons and Taliban fighters from Pakistan. One of these was PRT Kamdesh. It was built in a remote valley completely surrounded by The Hindu Kush Mountains. One analyst said it may as well be called “Camp Custer”. His reasoning was simple and official.” – Filmmaker

Just making a statement that a film is based on a true story is one thing, but when it’s verified, you see a movie a bit differently. The screenplay’s shocking battle and the helplessness of the US Army fighters depicted in the movie The Outpost, is absolutely cringing. But, cringing isn’t even a strong enough word for it. This film shows the ability and tactfulness of our military under fire, but more so, the heroism. Read more…

A compelling mystery The Silencing involves a serial killer and a father who has a missing teen. The movie takes you into the mind of the father as he tries to run down the killer with more teens go missing in the surrounding area. If you like films that challenge your mind to solve a crime, this one is very good. If you are an ardent fan of Cable channel ID Investigation Discovery however, you may have a problem with déjà vu.

“THE RENTAL” A Killer of a Thriller

Review by John Delia

A few days ago we posted a review of one of the best horror flicks this year and I hold to that opinion. However, The Rental that opens tomorrow is equally as good with all the trappings of being even a tad better. The film sets up its audience in a cunning way to hide any future happenings in a mystery that takes an odd twist as the credits roll. Two in a row shows the power of some independents that with a help of good directing can deliver excellent movies to their fan base. 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…
