Skyfall Blu-ray Review
Skyfall   Skyfall Blu-ray Review
(Chris Rebholz)  02/18/2013 9:34 AM EDT
For a while, it looked like Skyfall might not happen, as MGM's financial woes caused the film to be tabled, and some of the major players moved on to other projects. But no one has ever been able to keep James Bond down for long. Besides, resurrection and rebirth are among Skyfall's major themes. Thus it was that production resumed in Janua... Read More

Beautiful Creatures Theatrical Review
Beautiful Creatures   Beautiful Creatures Theatrical Review
(John Delia)  02/14/2013 10:41 AM EDT
Teen romance comes to the screen once more with the supernatural thriller Beautiful Creatures doing its best to break the mold switching from vampire lust to wooing witchery.  It's Twilight only better.  The film takes you into the coven of some nasty people who want to preserve their species no matter the cost to their teenage daught...

A Good Day to Die Hard Theatrical Review
A Good Day to Die Hard   A Good Day to Die Hard Theatrical Review
(John Delia)  02/14/2013 9:03 AM EDT
The action gets to fever pitch in A Good Day to Die Hard the fifth in a series of Bruce Willis movies that have attracted large audiences. The film starts off with a bang and never stops with relentless destruction mounting to a thrilling roller coaster ride finish.  If you are an action junkie and need a shot of adrenaline, then you won't...

Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome Blu-ray Review
Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome   Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome Blu-ray Review
(Stephen Compall)  02/14/2013 8:42 AM EDT
Following Caprica, a beautiful if unwatched experiment in radically altering the Battlestar Galactica formula, Syfy tried to get back to the roots of the franchise's mass appeal — battles with Cylons — in the online series/TV film Blood & Chrome. The result is a tasty morsel for Galactica fans, if ultimately failing to deeply sa... Read More

A Late Quartet Blu-ray Review
A Late Quartet   A Late Quartet Blu-ray Review
(John Delia)  02/14/2013 8:25 AM EDT
A strong essay on music and interpersonal relationships A Late Quartet comes to home video on Blu-ray and it's good.  The stellar ensemble cast provides an introspective look into the lives of friends drawn together by their musical craft and their inevitable separation. The home movie experience on Blu-ray for quality of both video and sound ... Read More

A Star Is Born Blu-ray Review
A Star Is Born   A Star Is Born Blu-ray Review
(John Delia)  02/12/2013 8:54 AM EDT
One of the best rock musicals of the 70s A Star is Born comes to Blu-ray for the first time.  Nicely presented inside a book featuring many of the scenes from the film, the special disc should bring back a lot of memories from an era when rock was king.  The film features Kris Kristofferson and Barbra Streisand giving performances that bu...

Identity Thief Theatrical Review
Identity Thief   Identity Thief Theatrical Review
(John Delia)  02/08/2013 9:40 AM EDT
The comedy road tripper Identity Thief enters this weekend's film choices on a good note.  Although it's not the best relationship film, I found it entertaining especially if you like the dead pan comedy of Jason Bateman and the wild and wackiness of Melissa McCarthy.  If you want some guffaws and whoops, then take a ride with a n...

Side Effects Theatrical Review
Side Effects   Side Effects Theatrical Review
(John Delia)  02/07/2013 9:43 AM EDT
Very compelling and gripping, the twisty little film Side Effects has the right cast, direction by Steven Soderbergh and a solid script by Scott Z. Burns.  The movie works hard to keep the audience off kilter right up to an ending with a surprising payoff. Drama lovers, film buffs, and those hankering for a good mystery are the main audience f... Read More

Warm Bodies Theatrical Review
Warm Bodies   Warm Bodies Theatrical Review
(John Delia)  01/31/2013 8:02 PM EDT
A nice job with a Romeo and Juliet theme, Warm Bodies shows what a imaginative writer/director can do with a zombie love story.  The slick little romancer creates fun out of terror and sends a lot of subliminal messages. Perfect for teens to twenties, it's the perfect modern day date movie with both sexes looking for fun and some creative horr... Read More

Stand Up Guys Theatrical Review
Stand Up Guys   Stand Up Guys Theatrical Review
(John Delia)  01/30/2013 9:33 PM EDT
The film Stand Up Guys being released this weekend in theaters has a nice touch. It brings together three of the most revered stars in a film emulating some of their past acting gigs.  It's a testimonial to their craft that puts them in front of a camera, aged and changed from their earlier Oscar winning performances and still commanding the s...
