Lockout Theatrical Review
Lockout   Lockout Theatrical Review
(John Delia)  04/12/2012 11:01 AM EST
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

American Reunion Theatrical Review
American Reunion   American Reunion Theatrical Review
(John Delia)  04/06/2012 8:45 AM EST
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 EST
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 EST
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...

The Hunger Games Theatrical Review
The Hunger Games   The Hunger Games Theatrical Review
(Nathan M Rose)  03/22/2012 10:37 AM EST
Typically, when a film is hyped up to the point of almost being a religious experience, it will fail to meet expectations; and only the die-hard fans will like a film despite its flaws.  However, this is the exact opposite of The Hunger Games, which is based on the New York Times bestselling young adult novel, by Suzanne Collins. The film...

Jeff, Who Lives at Home Theatrical Review
Jeff, Who Lives at Home   Jeff, Who Lives at Home Theatrical Review
(John Delia)  03/16/2012 5:15 PM EST
This fun film comes out of left field changing wacky into wow.  The movie is called Jeff, Who Lives at Home and stars Jason Segel in a role not too unfamiliar for him.  The cool thing about Jeff, Who Lives at Home comes with the unexpected following Jeff's usual unpredictable day. The movie centers on Jeff (Jason Segel) a hapless gro...

Seeking Justice Theatrical Review
Seeking Justice   Seeking Justice Theatrical Review
(Eric English)  03/15/2012 9:26 AM EST
In the gritty underbelly of "post-Katrina" New Orleans, crime is rampant. There are those on both sides of the law, and some who subscribe to neither. The levees are repaired but the heart and soul of the city is lost. Would be vigilantes who seek to clean up the streets by whatever means necessary emerge from the shadows to recruit more ...

Goon Theatrical Review
Goon   Goon Theatrical Review
(Chris Rebholz)  03/13/2012 8:56 AM EST
As much as "Moneyball" wasn't about baseball, "Goon" isn't really about the game of hockey. There's plenty of tense action on the ice to enjoy, but the picture is more fascinated with the elements of violence that dominate the sport, celebrating the bloodletting and glove-tossing escalation, forming a gladiator sport...

The Cabin In The Woods Theatrical Review
The Cabin In The Woods   The Cabin In The Woods Theatrical Review
(Roger Longenbach)  03/11/2012 11:04 AM EST
Much like homage to the classic Evil Dead, Cabin in the Woods is best explained as their own tagline describes: People go to a cabin in the woods.  Bad things happen.  But the movie is much more than that.  Wish I could go into more detail, but this movie is a mix of several genres in perfect harmony.  In this era of cookie cutt...

Silent House Theatrical Review
Silent House   Silent House Theatrical Review
(John Delia)  03/09/2012 8:39 AM EST
What starts out as a horror flick turns into a terror mindbender in the movie Silent House.  Not a very good script and a bit too sophisticated for most fans of the genres, there's little doubt that it will not last at the box office.    Set in a northern rural lake area, Sarah (Elizabeth Olsen) has returned to her childhoo...
