Oz: The Great and Powerful Blu-ray Review
Oz the Great and Powerful 3D   Oz: The Great and Powerful Blu-ray Review
(John Delia)  06/12/2013 11:07 AM EDT
The bold, dazzling and dramatic Oz the Great and Powerful comes to 3D Blu-ray with excellent quality. Nearly critic proof, the film brought one of the largest box office returns for 2013. However, although the film is a masterpiece of cinematography and CGI, the acting and direction do have problems.  The film has also been released in a Blu-r... Read More

A Good Day to Die Hard Blu-ray Review
A Good Day to Die Hard   A Good Day to Die Hard Blu-ray Review
(Roger Longenbach)  06/12/2013 10:28 AM EDT
For the fifth time since 1988, Bruce Willis has strapped on the badge of John McClain, a cop who happens to have really bad luck being in the wrong place at the wrong time.  This time, he travels to Russia in order to find his son, Jack (played by Jai Courtney).  Apparently, Jack has been estranged from the rest of the family and finally ...

Man of Steel   Man of Steel Theatrical Review
(John Delia)  06/11/2013 4:46 PM EDT
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

This is The End Theatrical Review
This is The End   This is The End Theatrical Review
(John Delia)  06/11/2013 10:23 AM EDT
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 Internship Theatrical Review
The Internship   The Internship Theatrical Review
(John Delia)  06/06/2013 3:56 PM EDT
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...

Teen Wolf DVD Review
Teen Wolf: Season Two   Teen Wolf DVD Review
(John Delia)  06/04/2013 8:28 AM EDT
One of the better series for teens that enjoy a fix of horror, Teen Wolf, has released their second season on DVD.  It's darker than original film starring Michael J. Fox in 1885, and has very good acting, a good continuing story and sufficient character development.  Directed at the youth audience the third season of Teen Wolf begins tod... Read More

Now You See Me Theatrical Review
Now You See Me   Now You See Me Theatrical Review
(John Delia)  05/30/2013 8:31 PM EDT
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...

After Earth Theatrical Review
After Earth   After Earth Theatrical Review
(John Delia)  05/30/2013 3:52 PM EDT
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

Cleopatra Blu-ray Review
Cleopatra   Cleopatra Blu-ray Review
(John Delia)  05/30/2013 9:19 AM EDT
One of the most spectacular films made back in the day Cleopatra comes to Blu-ray two months shy of its 50th birthday and it exudes nostalgia of yesteryears.  This release has a special significance as it's the 4 hours plus version that was shown at the premiere in New York for its debut.  Colorful, eventful and historical, the movie feat...

Dark Skies Blu-ray Review
Dark Skies   Dark Skies Blu-ray Review
(John Delia)  05/28/2013 8:52 AM EDT
Believable characters played by a fine cast save Dark Skies and keep it just scary enough to make it work.  I am a fan of science fiction and especially those based on possibilities of being a reality, so I wasn't sure if I could be challenged with this film based on aliens.  After watching Dark Skies on Blu-ray one dark night however...
