The Dark Knight Rises Theatrical Review
The Dark Knight Rises   The Dark Knight Rises Theatrical Review
(John Delia)  7/19/2012 10:29 AM EDT
This may be the film that knocks off The Avengers from the all time box-office winner for 2012.  The movie is called The Dark Knight Rises, but loyal fans will refer to the film as Batman and they know that this dark knight has all the power to rise above any comic book hero the industry can throw at him. For me, I'm just one of the crew, ... Read More

Frequency Blu-ray Review
Frequency   Frequency Blu-ray Review

Now out on Blu-ray for the first time Frequency, an exciting and intriguing film with a lot of twists, gives home video consumers a chance to see the film upgraded for digital televisions. Loaded with special features that include commentaries by the filmmakers, the added treat makes the experience even better. Being a Sci-fi enthusiast, movie... Read More

Outland Blu-ray Review
Outland   Outland Blu-ray Review
(John Delia)  7/17/2012 3:37 PM EDT
The science fiction thriller Outland has some very exciting special effects that could stand up to today's in comparison.  Now on Blu-ray for the first time, the special formatting, HD process and slick transfer to the new format makes the film even better on this second home video go around.  If you like outer space fantasy and if you ha...

Savages Theatrical Review
Savages   Savages Theatrical Review
(John Delia)  7/5/2012 8:12 PM EDT
If you are looking for gut wrenching excitement in a movie with a brilliant cast and a creative storyline then choose Savages, this year's most powerful action filled drama to date.  Intense and intriguing, the film has scenes so extreme that I felt myself gripping the theatre arm rests. If you think the drug wars were crazy in No Country for ... Read More

The Amazing Spider-Man Theatrical Review
The Amazing Spider-Man   The Amazing Spider-Man Theatrical Review
(John Delia)  7/2/2012 12:02 PM EDT
The production of The Amazing Spider-Man makes it a standout in visual acuity but misses its mark in originality and thrills.  That aside, it's still a must see for hero worshipers, action seekers and Marvel comic book fans.  To give the best review possible, I took out my DVD of Spider-Man, which was released in 2002, starring T...

Ted Theatrical Review
Ted   Ted Theatrical Review
(John Delia)  6/28/2012 3:51 PM EDT
Most all of us have had a Teddy Bear when we were young, even if it was in the form of Yoda or Raggedy Ann, but nothing like the one in the movie Ted.  This fun filled film gives a great show under the direction of Seth MacFarlane who knows comedy and shows off his skills in a big way with Ted. The fantasy story centers on John Bennett (M...

Magic Mike Theatrical Review
Magic Mike   Magic Mike Theatrical Review
(John Delia)  6/28/2012 2:15 PM EDT
Bare bods and fast music can't save Magic Mike.  Even if the ladies think they are being entertained, it's all a façade to cash in on a voyeuristic business that has clung to the sexual 90's.  It may be a take on Tatum's early teen romp to fill his pockets, but the actor did better with his "Step-up" acting than he does h...

That's My Boy Theatrical Review
That's My Boy   That's My Boy Theatrical Review
(John Delia)  6/13/2012 4:45 PM EDT
Coming off a dismal outing with Jack and Jill, Adam Sandler releases his newest comedy That's My Boy trying to reconnect to his fans.  Partnering up with Andy Samberg and going old school he makes the film a hit. The very funny story builds during each act leading to a very humorous ending. The silly little plot goes like this; w... Read More

Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted Theatrical Review
Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted   Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted Theatrical Review
(John Delia)  6/7/2012 10:18 PM EDT
Jumping to the top of the list of my 2012 comedy favorites Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted it's not just for kids. The laughter filled animated adventure tops its two previous films with a very engaging story, excellent 3D and new fun characters.  Don't be hesitant to take your family to one of the brightest animated films to come out this ...

Snow White and the Huntsman Theatrical Review
Snow White and the Huntsman   Snow White and the Huntsman Theatrical Review
(John Delia)  6/1/2012 7:38 AM EDT
The Brother's Grimm fairy tale "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs" comes to the screen portraying its malevolent power and dark imagery. What makes Snow White and the Huntsman worth the watch is the exciting story, brilliant sets and scenery, inventive cinematography, nicely placed CGI and costumes.  If you want to see the classic ...
