“STAR WARS: THE RISE OF SKYWALKER” Now on Video

March 28th, 2020 No comments

 

Review by John M. Delia Jr.

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker is the last chapter of one of the greatest Sci-fi space sagas of all time. After 42 years Disney/Lucas Films brings the series to a conclusion in this nicely wrapped finale. And like in 1977 when it all began, the exploits and realistic special effects still amaze. The space adventure continues with the same credo, “everyone seeks the belief that good will always triumph over evil” that’s been carried on since the beginning to the final chapter. Bringing in a new set of heroes in this finale, that are fighting for the same causes as their predecessors, the film comes to a brilliant end. Now released on various formats from DVD to 4K for home or travel it fits nicely into your video library. Read more…

“COLOR OUT OF SPACE” Terror From the Skies

Review by John Delia

A different kind of sci-fi thriller, the movie Color Out of Space is now available on DVD, Blu-ray, 4K UHD/BD and Digital HD. The film has some very good acting, direction and cinematography. The storyline is a bit unimaginative, but does entertain with a narrative that should provide some scares, thrills and a feeling of terror if it’s a dark rainy night and you are at home alone. Especially if you live in a secluded dark forest that has a long ominous road leading to your estate. Read more…

“INVASION PLANET EARTH” Now on DVD

Review by John Delia

The cool little indie Invasion Planet Earth has been released in North America on DVD, VOD and through digital cable providers. It’s a fun science fiction story that depicts a “new beginning” for the planet that has destroyed most of its population through a terrorist act and finds itself in the hands of aliens that hold the final key to life and death. The production as to explosions and space travel may look a little stark, uneven and not as incredible as movies like Star Wars, but are still viably entertaining to an audience. The directing, acting and script are very good and the presentation on your home televisions should make the experience enjoyable. Read more…

“Ant-Man and the Wasp” Teen View

Review by Ian Delia

If you have seen the movie “Captain America: Civil War”, Ant- man made an appearance as a partner of Captain America. As an effect of that clash of the Avengers, Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) was put on house arrest and wears an ankle monitor. He was also told to destroy the Ant-Man suit and never to make contact with Dr. Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) or his daughter Hope Van Dyne (Evangeline Lilly). Read more…

“Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom” Aesthetically Brilliant

Review by John Delia

Chapter two of Jurassic World follows with a phrase “Fallen Kingdom” and with that it’ll be no surprise if the box office is softer than expected. Even though the film is as action packed as its previous outing, the series has become “more of the same” and too much of looking back at the past. Saving the film from dropping below average the filmmakers have two big things going for it, aesthetically brilliant CGI and Chris Pratt who adds his brand of humor that keeps the movie a bit comical among the serious thrills.

“FANTASTIC FOUR” (Review & Trailer)

Review by John Delia

Dropping below the level of the previous sequel, Fantastic Four fails to entertain. Slow moving, lacks excitement, fails to intrigue and for all intense and purposes, unremarkable. The movie that reboots the Marvel characters does nothing more than rehash the story of how they came to be and the introduction of Doctor Doom. The production does not match the Disney’s Avengers products that have taken the superhero genre by storm. Dismal sets, novice direction and 80’s TV special effects doom the film. Originally intended to be remastered for release in 3D, the producers must have realized the film as a failure and trashed the idea to save money. Read more…

Review by John Delia

Waiting three years for the sequel to Avengers has been a long haul, but it’s worth it. The story, special effects, acting, directing, cinematography, special effects, computer graphics, motion capture and more are amazing. Whether you are a sci-fi nut or just want to see a lot of explosive action on the big screen, Avengers: Age of Ultron puts you right in the center of the excitement. Sizing it up with the recent Furious 7 for production value and entertainment, it’s too close to call. Read more…
