X-Men: Days of Future Past can best be summed up with a quote from one of my favorite movies, Total Recall (1990). "I've got to hand it to you… that's the best mindf**k yet." However, just simply stating this quote is taking the easy way out when trying to write a review of one of the most head-spinning comic book movies to dat... Read More

If "hell hath no fury like a woman scorned", what about three women? So is the premise of "The Other woman", the female empowerment comedy directed by Nick Cassavetes and starring Cameron Diaz, Leslie Mann and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau.  "The Other Woman" follows the travails of a wife who finds out her husband is che...

With the NFL Draft a month away, the movie Draft Day will be hoping for a lengthy run at the box-office. The film takes you to the innards of high pressure picking and trading not seen during a real NFL draft.  We saw one side of the coin, player management, in the movie Jerry Maguire when it was released in 1996, but here we get a Hollywood l...

Next to the Iron Man series, Marvel's Captain America: The Winter Soldier comes in a close second.  The very compelling storyline, creative action, excellent direction and above all good acting combine to put this super hero in the forefront.  Not so sci-fi fantasy, the Captain works to protect and serve. He's an Ethan Hunt with more cour... Read More

The Grand Budapest Hotel Theatrical Review

Quirky and comical Wes Anderson's newest release The Grand Budapest Hotel follows the same pattern as several of his past work, but this one outdoes them all.  The sets, special computer graphics, costumes and other production values take you to a whimsical world of mystery and murder as only Anderson can depict.  If you are a fan of Wes ...

Looking to take over where other young adult films have made big splashes, Divergent takes center stage at the box-office this weekend.  Taking aim at this very lucrative market the film features actors that are engaging, a story that's hip enough to garner their interest and a top notch production that envisions the tale very close to the pop...

Hot cars, hot women and hotheads cut loose in Need for Speed an action packed film that will make your head spin. It's a little of Smokey and the Bandit, a measure of Fast and Furious and a lot of Cannonball Run, and that's a good thing.  Much like those films, Need for Speed hooks its audience from the very beginning with exciting str...

(John Delia)  03/05/2014 9:13 AM EST
Not all sequels of movies work unless they were a blockbuster, had an unfinished story to tell and had characters that were likeable enough to warrant more screen time. In the case of 300: Rise of an Empire it had an uphill battle to capture all three of the justifications and it comes out on top.  With a graphic novelist like Frank Miller (Ro... Read More

(John Delia)  02/28/2014 9:02 AM EST
Filled with suspense and edge of your seat thrills, Non-Stop does a good job of keeping the audience off balance to the very end.   Directed by Jaume Collet-Serra who helmed the horror thriller Orphan combined with notables in lead roles, the film has excellent potential for a good weekend run.  If you like your movies taut with twis...
