Melancholia Theatrical Review
Melancholia   Melancholia Theatrical Review
(John Delia)  11/18/2011 9:11 AM EST
The film Melancholia by writer and director Lars von Trier stimulates the artistic part of the brain with sprawling landscape images, ominous tableaus and threatening visuals of a drifting planet. The film moves along playing out like the definition of its title. Melancholia: a mental condition and especially a manic-depressive condition characteri... Read More

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1 Theatrical Review
The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1   The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1 Theatrical Review
(John Delia)  11/17/2011 1:55 PM EST
Well the Twilight Saga has finally reached its ebb with the first half of Breaking Dawn that opens this weekend in theaters around the world.  Certainly expected to be earth shaking due to millions of young girls and twenty-something's rushing to the box-office to get a look at semi-nude Robert Pattenson making love to his comely co-star Krist...

Immortals Theatrical Review
Immortals   Immortals Theatrical Review
(Eric English)  11/11/2011 10:40 PM EST
For the new film Immortals directed by Tarsem Singh, looks are everything. A movie can have a lousy screenplay and uninteresting characters, but as long as the costumes are immaculate and the production design superb, then little else matters. Immortals attempts at having as much machismo as 300 but comes up quite short and has about as much mythol... Read More

Anonymous Theatrical Review
Anonymous   Anonymous Theatrical Review
(John Delia)  11/11/2011 1:58 PM EST
I hope the film Anonymous is true because as being a former Theatre (plays) critic it has always intrigued me if William Shakespeare did or didn't write his sonnets and plays.  So, being the kind of guy I am and having enjoyed the film so much, it must be very near the truth.  Even if this period piece was all contrived, the settings, cos...

J. Edgar Theatrical Review
J. Edgar   J. Edgar Theatrical Review
(John Delia)  11/09/2011 1:45 PM EST
The interesting and historical J. Edgar has reached local movie theatres with very good performances by Leonardo DiCaprio, Naomi Watts and Judi Dench.  The film has a few flaws, but it does give a good account of the man who was the first director of the FBI.   The film follows the life of J. Edgar Hoover (DiCaprio) the first director of ... Read More

Tower Heist Theatrical Review
Tower Heist   Tower Heist Theatrical Review
(Chris Rebholz)  11/06/2011 8:19 PM EST
Rush Hour's Brett Ratner returns to direct Tower Heist, a lighthearted film with an impressive ensemble cast. Stiller plays the lead Josh, a workaholic manger of ‘The Tower'; a set of elite apartments in New York owned by one Arthur Shaw (Alan Alda). Josh has always looked up to Shaw and the two have something of a friendship they are even ch... Read More

A Very Harold & Kumar Christmas Theatrical Review
A Very Harold & Kumar Christmas   A Very Harold & Kumar Christmas Theatrical Review
(John Delia)  11/03/2011 7:33 PM EST
Definitely a man flick A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas follows up on the other two outings with a lot of eye candy and sex, but the gals will get an eye full too. You do not have to have seen the other two flicks, but I bet you will go rent them after seeing this wild comedy; it's as good at The Hangover. Their signature full circle cra... Read More

In Time Theatrical Review
In Time   In Time Theatrical Review
(Chris Rebholz)  10/31/2011 10:26 PM EST
Writer/director Andrew Niccol's films make you pause and require some smart thinking. His film Gattaca, which he wrote, was also his first directing debut and a favorite of some sci-fi fans. Next came The Truman Show, starring Jim Carrey and written and produced by Niccol, which received three Academy Award nominations, including Best Screenplay. N... Read More

The Rum Diary Theatrical Review
The Rum Diary   The Rum Diary Theatrical Review
(John Delia)  10/27/2011 3:33 PM EST
A testy screenplay that turns conventional upside down becomes an enjoyable madcap adventure with Johnny Depp's ‘intoxicating' performance.  The daring filmmaking that takes a chance with the outlandish Hunter S. Thompson book The Rum Diary comes up a winner.  Not a Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, but a very good companion piece.&nb... Read More

Puss in Boots Theatrical Review
Puss in Boots   Puss in Boots Theatrical Review
(Marco Chacon)  10/27/2011 9:08 AM EST
In the original story, Puss is a pretty arrogant cat.  He is not much of a sword-fighter, but is very smart as well as smartly dressed.  In Shrek, he is Antonio Bandaras, and he is a wizard with a blade.     Now we get a spin-off that takes place before the Shrek films:  Puss is an outlaw who grew up in an orphanage and hun...
