World War Z Theatrical Review

The opening sequence in the zombie thriller World War Z gets so intense that I white knuckled as I grabbed the arms of my seat, the film's that shocking.  These 15 minutes alone are worth the price of admission.  It's like watching a Roland Emmerich film on steroids (Day After Tomorrow, 2012) only more daunting.  If you like films th...

Taking a walk on the dark side for a comic book favorite, Man of Steel blazes into theaters under the direction of Zack Snyder this weekend and he's aiming at taking over Iron Man as the best box-office superhero.  The cast, crew and story are impeccable providing a brooding look into the life of Superman and the battle for planet Earth. Yet t... Read More

In a smart move by Seth Rogen for his fans things start getting Looney bins in his new film This Is The End, an apocalyptic film that features most all his old pals and then some.  The movie isn't more than a goof on the end of the world, but it scorches when it comes to the comedy the stars bring to the screen.  If you've ever wa...

The comedies are starting to invade movie theaters this summer, some raunchy others just for fun and The Internship fits into the latter genre of a good old fashion laugher.  With two of my favorite comedians teaming up for the first time since Wedding Crashers, this little ditty had me in stitches most of the time.  If you like wacky com...

There have been some good film's featuring magicians, but it's been quite awhile since a bright one has come along to challenge their forerunners.  Opening this weekend is Now You See Me and it's a fast moving, quick thinking, mindbender that's fueled by a mysterious story and played out by a great cast.  If you like intrigue, mystery, ma...

Taking a chance on another science fiction thriller, M. Night Shyamalan probes disaster with After Earth.  The trick here is can he rise above his box-office misses like The Last Airbender and Lady in the Water. His Sixth Sense has never been equaled and for that he still has a following.  Here, Shyamalan gets smart and brings in a top st... Read More

Fast & Furious 6 Theatrical Review

(Paul Kates)  05/23/2013 11:34 AM EST
There are not that many franchises that can boast six or more feature films to their name, but that landmark has just been set for the hugely popular high octane movies Fast and Furious series. Starting back in 2001, the series so far has taken in over $1.5 billion worldwide at the box office, and the sixth instalment will surely boost that figure ... Read More

(John Delia)  05/22/2013 2:39 PM EST
Actually, although I did laugh at many of the comical mishaps to which characters were subjected, The Hangover Part III wasn't up to par with the original of the three episodes.  The good things were the return of the whole main cast that made The Hangover Part I a huge success, the downside was it turned out to be more repetitious than I thou...

Picking up where he left off with the fine release of his first attempt at bringing back the Star Trek franchise, J.J. Abrams hits pay dirt again with Star Trek Into Darkness.  The exciting new chapter tantalizes the mind with amazing CGI and special effects while presenting an adventure that's reminiscent of earlier challenges for the Enterpr...

The Great Gatsby Theatrical Review

(John Delia)  05/09/2013 8:28 AM EST
Director Baz Luhrmann who lost with Moulin Rouge and lost again with Australia, takes a chance with an F. Scott Fitzgerald novel The Great Gatsby turning it into a pop-up book for the screen.  While the CGI and sets do sparkle, he turns the storyline into a simple predictive tome set in an era of flappers and illegal booze.  Luhrmann gets...
