Cosmopolis Theatrical Review
Cosmopolis   Cosmopolis Theatrical Review
(John Delia)  8/24/2012 10:26 AM EDT
Showing most all the ills in the world Cosmopolis gives its audience a slow moving picture of our decaying civilization.  Although the film is nicely acted and directed, there's too much crammed into the nearly two-hour movie to really appreciate the meaning of it all.  The warning here insinuates the self-destruction of our great society...

Premium Rush Theatrical Review

(John Delia)  8/24/2012 9:46 AM EDT
Action junkies beware the movie Premium Rush streaks into theaters this weekend and it's a sweet adrenaline rush.  The film features some excellent shots of New York City through the eyes of a rapid camera that draws focus on all the heart pumping drama.  The fine acting and directing make this hour and a half body in motion film work.&nb...

Revenge DVD Review
Revenge: The Complete First Season   Revenge DVD Review
(John Delia)  8/23/2012 10:08 AM EDT
If you would like to know what retribution feels like then watch the television series Revenge, the first season's now on DVD. So nicely crafted you would think that author Mike Kelly must have had a close encounter with a vengeance-craving woman.  Seriously though, I thought a female audience would best see the series, but after getting throu...

The Odd Life of Timothy Green Theatrical Review
The Odd Life of Timothy Green   The Odd Life of Timothy Green Theatrical Review
(John Delia)  8/16/2012 3:02 PM EDT
An enchanting story of inspiration and hope, The Odd Life of Timothy Green opens in movie theaters.  The nice little film has an uplifting story for the whole family even though it over fanaticizes at times.  Translation from script to screen seems to have been a chore however and the pieces of the puzzle look like they have been jammed t...

Full Metal Jacket Blu-ray Review
Full Metal Jacket 25th Anniversary Book   Full Metal Jacket Blu-ray Review
(John Delia)  8/13/2012 11:58 AM EDT
The 25th Anniversary Edition of Full Metal Jacket has been released on Blu-ray Disc and if you have never seen the movie, it's a stunner.  Packaged with a companion book, the 2-disc set makes a great purchase for your library.  Nominated for an Oscar, the gutsy war film features an excellent cast and magnificent direction by Stanley K...

The Bourne Legacy Theatrical Review
The Bourne Legacy   The Bourne Legacy Theatrical Review
(John Delia)  8/10/2012 12:45 AM EDT
Director Tony Gilroy takes his time spooling out The Bourne Legacy just avoiding the snooze factor in this forth installment of the Bourne series.  The film is steeped in a lot of superfluous character build up, long periods of uneventful scenes and an outcome that doesn't deliver.  If you are looking for an action thriller from this four...

Cellular Blu-ray Review
Cellular   Cellular Blu-ray Review
(John Delia)  7/31/2012 7:50 AM EDT
If you are a lover of fright films that keep fear on a high level then see Cellular now available on Blu-ray for the first time in the United States.  The creative film has excellent acting, imaginative directing and a great script.  If that's not enough to get the Blu-ray here's another reason to grab it, the smart interesting bonus feat...

The Watch Theatrical Review
The Watch   The Watch Theatrical Review
(John Delia)  7/26/2012 11:07 AM EDT
The screwball film The Watch tries hard to entertain, but sinks below average even with its fine cast of witty pros. The film struggles, trying to make the scanty script work by upping the crude and rude level with a lot of off color sight gags, a good measure of dumbness and strong sexual innuendos. The only reason for making the trek to your loca... Read More

Margaret Blu-ray Review
Margaret   Margaret Blu-ray Review
(John Delia)  7/24/2012 1:59 PM EDT
It took a while to recover from watching the movie Margaret, but it sure is worth the watch.  Now available on DVD and Blu-ray combo pack the very poignant and psychological film digs into some of life's disturbing behaviors to tell the story of a teen hardened by societies deep-seated challenges.  If you would like to be immersed in a fa...

Leverage DVD Review
Leverage Season Four   Leverage DVD Review
(John Delia)  7/23/2012 11:59 AM EDT
The concept and storylines of the Season Four television series Leverage are good and the talent nicely cast.  Now on DVD all the advantages of being able to see the shows in their entirety unencumbered by commercial breaks makes the entertainment even better.  If you like crime shows that intrigue infused with some comedy, then Leverage'...
