Touch DVD Review
Touch: The Complete First Season   Touch DVD Review
(John Delia)  10/19/2012 11:13 AM EST
Made up one of the most challenging and intriguing plots to come along, Touch: The First Complete Season is now available on DVD and Blu-ray in box sets.  The weekly show that aired in 2012 has a lot of suspense, brain teasing and love between a father and son.  I like the series, not only for the acting, but the originality and uniquenes...

People Like Us Blu-ray Review
People Like Us   People Like Us Blu-ray Review
(John Delia)  10/19/2012 9:09 AM EST
The inspirational film People Like Us has been released in a Blu-ray Combo pack with some very nice bonus features.  It's a good film with an emotional story that's well acted and directed.  A chick flick of sorts, the movie should have a high appeal from the 25 and older target market. Inspired by a true story the movie finds down o...

Alex Cross Theatrical Review
Alex Cross   Alex Cross Theatrical Review
(John Delia)  10/18/2012 11:16 AM EST
Even with fine acting on the part of the central cast, Alex Cross rises to no more than average due to uneven directing and a weak screenplay. That said the film's main star Tyler Perry should draw a huge audience of curiosity seekers who want to see his first film starring role as an action actor.  The story centers on Alex Cross (Tyler ...

Wall Street Blu-ray Review
Wall Street   Wall Street Blu-ray Review
(John Delia)  10/15/2012 7:55 AM EST
Delivering a well thought out look at the seedy side of stock trading, Director Oliver Stone gets down and dirty in the film Wall Street now available on a "Filmmakers Signature Series Blu-ray".  The hard hitting story combined with excellent acting pushed the film to over a $43 million box-office take in 1987 and earned an Oscar and...

Seven Psychopaths Theatrical Review
Seven Psychopaths   Seven Psychopaths Theatrical Review
(John Delia)  10/12/2012 8:44 AM EST
When you have a violent comedy your cast must have the ability to carry out the dialogue with dead pan and tongue-in-cheek precision, with Seven Psychopaths there's no doubt.  Much like the humor in Inglourious Basterds, In Bruges and most of the Grindhouse films, the script and actors fit the bill.  If you can deal with the bloody scenes...

Argo Theatrical Review
Argo   Argo Theatrical Review
(John Delia)  10/11/2012 3:57 PM EST
Based on a true story the suspense filled film Argo involving the rescue of six Americans opens in theaters this weekend.  Set in the background of unrest in Iran during the President Jimmy Carter era, the covert operation was kept secret until the late 1990's.  The drama based on a book of the same title features a solid script, some fin...

War of The Roses Blu-ray Review
War of the Roses: Filmmaker Signature Series   War of The Roses Blu-ray Review
(John Delia)  10/10/2012 8:52 AM EST
With a blast from the past The War of the Roses has returned on Blu-ray Disc.  Although it's billed as a comedy, most of the on screen time involves the drama that takes place between the three main actors.  Slow moving in parts, the character build up to a remarkable finale is worth the wait. The film centers on the Roses, Oliver (M...

Frankenweenie Theatrical Review
Frankenweenie   Frankenweenie Theatrical Review
(John Delia)  10/6/2012 6:14 PM EST
With Halloween quickly approaching horror flicks take center stage at the movie theater.  But, most fright films this time of the year are not for kids.  Disney's Frankenweenie however pulls out all the stops and bolts into movie houses around the nation providing some family fun and its rated PG for most everyone.  Direct from ...

Pitch Perfect Theatrical Review
Pitch Perfect   Pitch Perfect Theatrical Review
(John Delia)  10/5/2012 10:10 AM EST
If you are looking for a fun film with a lot of liveliness, then look to Pitch Perfect for your entertainment this weekend.  It's not just a comedy, but a creative musical that aims at a younger crowd yet reaches all adult levels with snappy wit, involving storyline and high energy performances. The story centers on Beca (Anna Kendrick) a...
