Review by John Delia

Opening tomorrow in your living rooms is Villain a gritty crime thriller with a lot of disturbing violence. The movie does have some good directing, acting and a decent storyline so it should be considered for fans of extreme crime thrillers. What’s good is that the action stars early and gets very compelling so you won’t get bored. Read more…

“Birds of Prey” A Kickass Fan Feast

Review by John Delia

One of the best films in recent past for action fans, Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) comes to the screen with a kickass movie that should please the pulp fiction fan base. It’s a follow up to DC Comics’ Suicide Squad for one of their characters, Harley Quinn, and the start of a probable spinoff series. In this episode it explains Harley Quinn’s past and her failing love life that had fallen apart when Joker decided to part ways. But, you can’t keep this wild DC Comic character down as you’ll find out in Birds of Prey. Read more…

Review by John Delia

An action thriller The Courier is now on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD, it’s a screamer. The starts with action, pauses with dialogue so you have the necessary information to digest, then takes off on the wildest ride of your life. Holding the film together is an amazing performance by Olga Kurylenko reminiscent of the action in the John Wick series and her tough persona in James Bond “Quantum of Solace”. If you like physical films then this actioner should be on the top of your list. Read more…

“The Fall of the American Empire” Comedy Askew

June 27th, 2019 No comments

 

 

Review by John Delia

Quirky, predictable and somewhat inconceivable, combined with a script that’s two hours of French Canadian dialogue, The Fall of the American Empire’s a bit of a chore to watch. That said, the acting is quite good, the film production value gets good marks and the comedy does work as the movie progresses.

Pierre-Paul Daoust (Alexandre Landry) is an ordinary guy, but has the oddity of being cautious about everything. Unless a notable person has made a statement that will back up what others say to him, it’s not a truism. He’s even too careful about what he says to his longtime girlfriend Linda (Florence Longpré), especially about sex. Oh, he wants to have sex with her, but is afraid she will leave him if he asks. It’s the way everything goes in his life. Read more…

“Bad Times at the El Royale” Taking Sides

Review by John Delia

Numerous filmmakers have shocked and hammered their audiences with unexpected vile acts, surprising twists, distasteful behaviors and contemptible desires, but they still can’t top the master Quentin Tarantino. Oh a few have come within a hair close like the Coen Brothers, David Lynch, Martin Scorsese, Stanley Kubrick, and Francis Ford Coppolo. They are the leaders that many have tried to emulate due to the offbeat style that provided thrillers like Fargo, The Shinning, The Godfather, Goodfellas, and Lost Highway. Read more…

“Deadpool 2” Continues to Amaze

Critics have been asked by Twentieth Century Fox to not give away any major plot spoilers for the movie Deadpool 2. They feel that it would ruin the whole experience for our readers and avid followers of the lunatic superhero. (Oops I gave away that he is a lunatic, but anyone and everyone who is savvy of the Marvel Comics characters knows he’s crazy). So I thought it over and checked out Marvel’s website to find out what their synopsis is for the sequel. None of which gives away any portion of the plot, actually it’s not even one iota of the plot.

Review by John Delia, Sr.

Totally hilarious The Hitman’s Bodyguard turns into a wild ride early on in this action comedy “odd couple” movie. The script may give you a bit of déjà vu, but it’s well worth the laughs and thrills. Certainly a nice cap to a “dinner and a movie”, as Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson are a hoot together.

The most electrifying and suspense-filled film this year, The Accountant has opened nationwide and it’s a thriller. From opening act to the closing credits it keeps you glued to your seat waiting for the exciting scene. Under the keen direction of Gavin O’Connor who brought Miracle and Warrior to the screen, the cast makes The Accountant a winner. If you thought that Ben Affleck was good in movies like Gone Girl, Argo or The Town, witness the actor at his level best. Read more…

Kingsman: The Secret Service (Film Review & Trailer)

KINGSMAN box art

 

Review by John Delia

Move over James Bond, there’s a new game in town and they have as many gadgets and toys. Kingsman: The Secret Service is very cool and aptly fills the void for a sci-fi adventure comedy left by Guardians of the Galaxy. The main characters in Kingsman are smart, fascinating, and often time violent, getting the job done one villain at a time. Even though “The Secret Service” comic book does have a slightly different story and characters are renamed for the movie, for the male audience it’s still the best game in town. Read more…
