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...

Peter Pan Blu-ray Review
Peter Pan   Peter Pan Blu-ray Review
(Chris Rebholz)  01/30/2013 9:29 PM EDT
Peter Pan: a long-awaited addition to Disney's Blu-ray canon that should make anyone's collection feel more whole, more complete. It isn't just a personal favorite either. It's one of Walt Disney's most beloved animated classics, one of the studio's greatest treasures and arguably the best Disney animated feature released in... Read More

Bullet to the Head Theatrical Review
Bullet to the Head   Bullet to the Head Theatrical Review
(John Delia)  01/30/2013 2:04 PM EDT
Not one of Stallone's best efforts or Walter Hill's for that matter, Bullet to the Head's just another partner film with a lot of mayhem and familiar one-liners.  Missing the chemistry of the Stallone of yesteryears, the master of the choreographed fight has become too repetitive accepting too many of the same roles lately.  I...

Femme Fatales DVD Review
Femme Fatales: The Complete First Season   Femme Fatales DVD Review
(John Delia)  01/30/2013 10:54 AM EDT
When you first start watching the just released DVD of Femme Fatales Season 1 the first thing probably crossing your mind would be "just another skin flick".  But, after getting into the stories I found more like a Twilight Zone with stylish nudity and sex.  Packed with some very intriguing stories in 13 twisty and twisted episo...

Hannah and Her Sisters Blu-ray Review
Hannah and Her Sisters   Hannah and Her Sisters Blu-ray Review
(John Delia)  01/28/2013 9:05 AM EDT
While I am not a huge fan of Woody Allen's work I did find Hannah and Her Sisters an enjoyable film to watch.  Now on Blu-ray for the first time the Academy Award winning film has exceptional acting, reasonably good direction and a story that does compel one to keep going to Allen's interesting choice of a finale. Nicely transferred from scree... Read More
