Red 2 Theatrical Review
Red 2   Red 2 Theatrical Review
(John Delia)  07/20/2013 1:23 AM EDT
The raging action comedy Red 2 comes to theaters, but its Catherine Zeta-Jones and Helen Mirren that command the screen.  While the whole crew is back for a second dip into the world of International Crime while on the run from their former CIA bosses, it's these two ladies that make an impact. For a fun romp around Europe from London to Mosco... Read More

Grown Ups 2 Theatrical Review
Grown Ups 2   Grown Ups 2 Theatrical Review
(John Delia)  07/11/2013 11:35 AM EDT
It's a hilarious bunch of nonsense called Grown Ups 2 that follows its previous hilarious bunch of nonsense.  If you like Adam Sandler's wacky comedy style that mostly works with sight gags, tongue in cheek quips and a lot of monkey business then you are a target for this film. Others may not want to waste their time.  Adam brings... Read More

Pacific Rim Theatrical Review
Pacific Rim   Pacific Rim Theatrical Review
(John Delia)  07/11/2013 8:37 AM EDT
Pump yourself up for this one because Pacific Rim takes action to new heights with a noisy display of explosive combat.  The battle scenes rise to shock and awe much like you've seen in films like Battleship and Transformers, but that's the point of going to see this genre of film now isn't it.  If you drag your lady along however, you ma...

Despicable Me 2 Theatrical Review
Despicable Me 2   Despicable Me 2 Theatrical Review
(John Delia)  07/03/2013 8:50 AM EDT
They're back again those funny characters that make the animated film Despicable Me 2 a hilarious situation comedy that delivers the laughter.  I'm speaking of the pill shaped ‘work a bee's' for the villain Gru called Minions.  In this sequel they dominate the screen and give most of the audience what they came for, a lot of chuckle...

The Lone Ranger Theatrical Review
The Lone Ranger   The Lone Ranger Theatrical Review
(John Delia)  07/03/2013 8:43 AM EDT
Taking a chance on an old-timer favorite, producer and director Gore Verbinski brings a remake of The Lone Ranger to the big screen.  Loosely based on the 1956 movie starring Clayton Moore and Jay Silverheels, his casting of Armie Hammer and Johnny Depp somewhat mirrors the two original players and delivers a solid hit. The film opens at ...

The Heat Theatrical Review
The Heat   The Heat Theatrical Review
(John Delia)  06/28/2013 9:24 AM EDT
One of the better comedies to be released this year, The Heat has a lot going for it with a fine cast, good comedic writing and some nice direction from Paul Feig who gave us Bridesmaids. Of course it doesn't hurt to have Melissa McCarthy one of the top comics in the business as your co-star. If you're looking for a lot of laughs from a plo... Read More

White House Down Theatrical Review
White House Down   White House Down Theatrical Review
(Sean Ferguson)  06/28/2013 8:48 AM EDT
As a critic I often wonder if Hollywood has completely run out of new ideas and I'm even more bewildered when 2 movies are released, within a short period of time, with the same subject. I'm sure you have noticed this before. Just off the top of my head "Friends with Benefits" & "No Strings Attached" came to mind, or... Read More

6 Souls Blu-ray Review
6 Souls   6 Souls Blu-ray Review
(John Delia)  06/27/2013 2:12 PM EDT
Disturbing and violent the mystery thriller 6 Souls creates a cool brand of horror that creeps and surprises.  The film has very good acting, good direction and some excellent cinematography with special effects.  Now on Blu-ray and DVD the movie makes for a spooky night in your home. The story centers on forensic psychologist Dr. Ca...

Stoker Blu-ray Review
Stoker   Stoker Blu-ray Review
(Chris Rebholz)  06/26/2013 1:36 PM EDT
A "stoker," for those of you who don't know, is someone who adds fuel to a fire. Gets it roaring, heated up, feeding the flames. This is the underlying metaphor of Stoker, a twisted coming-of-age thriller about a morbid teenaged girl whose inner appetites—sexual and otherwise—are fed by a charismatic long-lost uncle who ar...

Wilfred Blu-ray Review
Wilfred: Season Two   Wilfred Blu-ray Review
(Chris Rebholz)  06/26/2013 1:30 PM EDT
Much like its central protagonist, Ryan Newman (Elijah Wood), Wilfred's weightiest problems continue to be inconsistency and uncertainty. Adapted from the Australian series of the same name, concerning an emotionally distraught young man who possibly survives a suicide attempt only to awake to a world in which he's the only one who sees his...
