The Three Stooges Theatrical Review
The Three Stooges   The Three Stooges Theatrical Review
(John Delia)  04/13/2012 8:30 AM EDT
Woo Woo Woo, Nyuck, Nyuck, Nyuck and all the sight gags you can handle are back and more impious than ever in The Three Stooges. The very cool film had me in stitches with inane comedy that hits the top of my laughter barometer.  Although mainly a guy film, most all who can remember the knuckleheaded trio will love the insane comical antics th...

The Raid: Redemption Theatrical Review
The Raid: Redemption   The Raid: Redemption Theatrical Review
(John Delia)  04/12/2012 4:20 PM EDT
A kick to the head, a fist to the body, guns blazing, explosions rocking the hallways, knives slashing, bodies everywhere and that's only the first 15 minutes of film The Raid: Redemption.  With amazing choreography, realistic combat and creative cinematography the movie makes a big hit.  Don't look for an original story, but that's not t...

Lockout Theatrical Review
Lockout   Lockout Theatrical Review
(John Delia)  04/12/2012 11:01 AM EDT
With a mixture of tongue in cheek comedy and sci-fi action Lockout does an average job of entertaining male teens through adults.  The fast paced film reminds me however, of Escape From New York another futuristic film that features some very mean characters and a lot of brutality. Lockout features some very mean looking characters so it's har... Read More

We Bought A Zoo Blu-ray Review
We Bought A Zoo   We Bought A Zoo Blu-ray Review
(Chris Rebholz)  04/11/2012 12:01 PM EDT
We Bought a Zoo is located at the intersection of Feel Good Road and Predictable Lane. Matt Damon saps it up as the father who means to do well by his two children after their mother passes, but is hounded by impossibly over-the-top government bureaucrats, teenage angst, and Scarlett Johansson. Scratch that, that last one is actually a good thing.&... Read More

War Horse Blu-ray Review
War Horse   War Horse Blu-ray Review
(Chris Rebholz)  04/07/2012 10:37 AM EDT
When the 2010 Academy Awards nominees were announced they seemed to justify the expansion of the Best Picture category to ten slots. But when the 2011 nominees came down, some began to wonder: is there really a benefit to nominating so many films? While The Artist, The Descendants, Hugo, Midnight in Paris, Moneyball and Tree of Life earned their pl... Read More

American Reunion Theatrical Review
American Reunion   American Reunion Theatrical Review
(John Delia)  04/06/2012 8:45 AM EDT
Comedy runs high in the sequel American Reunion with the whole cast returning from American Pie.  Although the film does provide a lot of laughs, it may be somewhat hackneyed with each of the characters getting in similar problems from the original film.  But, if it's just a mindless feature you want to clear out the emotions from a dull ...

Mirror Mirror Theatrical Review
Mirror Mirror   Mirror Mirror Theatrical Review
(Paul Kates)  03/29/2012 9:37 AM EDT
In 1937, the genius that was Walt Disney, released what was to become an all-time classic, the first full-length, animated feature film, Snow White. No doubt this was a movie that has stood the test of time and is as much loved by children and adults alike today as much as it was in those pre-war years. Fast forward to the present day, and 2012 wil... Read More

Wrath of the Titans Theatrical Review
Wrath of the Titans   Wrath of the Titans Theatrical Review
(John Delia)  03/29/2012 8:49 AM EDT
This sequel called Wrath of the Titans happens to be one of those films that if you hadn't seen the first one, you may get a little lost in the plot. Not, that the plot is very difficult here, but read the following film description and you male tweens to twenties should get the idea even if you haven't seen Clash of the Titans. A decade after...

South Park Blu-ray Review
South Park: The Complete Fifteenth Season   South Park Blu-ray Review
(John Delia)  03/29/2012 8:47 AM EDT
The boys are back at it again in Blu-ray with the release of South Park: The Complete Fifteenth Season and it's UNRATED.  Of course, if you are a fan, you probably already new that.  The hilarious fourteen episodes are devoid of ads and any other interference so you don't have a lag in the madness we aficionados have enjoyed for the last ...
