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…

“The Lighthouse” A Blistering Psychological Drama

Review by John Delia

Gripping, engaging, wicked and possessed the move The Lighthouse is one of the odds on favorites for an Oscar. The acting, directing and cinematography captivate the viewer with a story that so punishing you’ll leave the theater in a sweat. It’s one of those dramas that don’t come around too often and when they do they’re a must see. Bring your slicker and an umbrella as this film will blow you away. Read more…

“Widows” Just Short of a Masterpiece

Review by Gino Sassani

Steve McQueen has established himself as a rather talented director. 12 Years A Slave was one of the better films of 2013 and one of the few times I happened to agree with the Oscars’ choice for Best Picture. When he tackled the heist format I expected something unique, and I wasn’t at all disappointed. McQueen managed to put a clever spin on a tired genre and provide us with a superior and inspired cast. It wasn’t all completely his idea, of course. The film is based on a Canadian miniseries that goes back to the 1980’s. That doesn’t mean he hasn’t found a way to imprint the material with his own style and bold choices. There’s a lot to love about Widows, but I have pretty low expectations for this film at the box office. More on that later. Let’s get down to it, shall we? Read more…

“Skate Kitchen” Where Girls are King

Review by John Delia, Sr.

Very worrisome at times, the movie Skate Kitchen opens the door wide concerning the growing habits of teens in New York. I would like to believe that the film doesn’t really represent a huge number of teens, but the way writer Crystal Moselle depicts a group of skaters that throw caution to the winds in both their skateboarding and their personal life reveals them as sex crazed, pot smoking and alcohol swilling youngsters.

Review by John Delia, Sr.

Far and few between the performances in the film Don’t Worry, He Won’t Get Far on Foot, are generous and provoking. Meant in a good way however, it’s rare that you would find the emotion and candidness of the subject matter so brilliantly depicted. If you see one independent movie this year choose this true story, you will not be disappointed. Read more…

“Acrimony” Romance and Retribution

Review by John Delia

The first hour of Tyler Perry’s Acrimony plays out with a very inviting storyline, then it starts to slip into the depths of the “ordinary” making the film clichéd. That said, the direction, soundtrack, and acting are very good and cinematography above average, lending the film the helping hand to make it a box office winner. Now on DVD and Blu-ray, Tyler Perry’s fan base and drama lovers should enjoy the effort in the comfort of their living room. Read more…

Review by John Delia, Sr.

Up front I’ll tell you that the movie Happy Death Day has so many twists and turns that you would think you were on a wild ride at Universal Studios. The fun, but deadly storyline is a cross between Scary Movie and Groundhog Day and the maze of thrills will have you spooked out until the very end. Or what you think is the end, so don’t get up out of your seat until it’s ALL over. Again! and Again! Read more…

Review by John Delia

Targeted at teens the movie Nerve sets up a very dangerous game that involves taking huge chances and cheating death. The film has adequate acting and able direction, but the storyline does have elements of the impossible. While it’s just a movie to create thrills and suspense, it’s kind of fun to watch, especially the risky scenes involving the dares. Read more…

Review by John Delia

Not a classic but a very funny and bawdy Melissa McCarthy turns up the heat in The Boss. She’s way over the top in this parody on making it to the highest level of the business ladder. Filled with a lot of sight gags, rude wisecracks and off color language it’s a wild and witty nonstop laugh-a-thon. McCarthy’s at her best much like her performance in Spy, but this time it’s taking down her adversary in the business world. Read more…
