Battleship Theatrical Review
Battleship   Battleship Theatrical Review
(John Delia)  5/17/2012 10:44 AM EDT
Who'd ever think they could make a film from a kids Hasbro board game and come up a winner.  With Battleship they did just that and it's more action, thrills, amazing special effects than I had ever imagined possible.  If you like alien invasion movies with cool spaceships, scary spacemen, saw bladed war drones and explosive rocket pegs t...

The Dictator Theatrical Review
The Dictator   The Dictator Theatrical Review
(John Delia)  5/16/2012 8:28 AM EDT
Silly, brainless, raunchy, ridiculous, bizarre, outrageous, inane yet somehow funny, The Dictator, a screwball story that entertains has opened in movie houses across America.  If you have seen Sacha Baron Cohen's films Bruno, Ali G and Borat and like his tongue in cheek comedy that embarrasses, humiliates, disgraces and ridicules, then this n...

The Five-Year Engagement Theatrical Review
The Five-Year Engagement   The Five-Year Engagement Theatrical Review
(John Delia)  4/27/2012 8:28 AM EDT
Much like most of Jason Segel's films the comedy runs high in The Five-Year Engagement with strong performances, good direction and a decent script.  It's another romance film, but this one does have an edge that keeps this ditty reasonably fresh. Take a date or a gang the laughter gets contagious so sit back and enjoy a break from social netw... Read More

The Raven Theatrical Review
The Raven   The Raven Theatrical Review
(John Delia)  4/27/2012 8:25 AM EDT
Methodically delivered The Raven provides a suspense mystery that chills and thrills.  Set in the mid 1800's the Edgar Allan Poe based story has all the earmarks of a winning box office weekend.  With excellent direction controlling fine actors and a sold script, the film moves to the top of my best of 2012. The storyline involves a ...

The Three Stooges Theatrical Review
The Three Stooges   The Three Stooges Theatrical Review
(John Delia)  4/13/2012 8:30 AM EDT
Woo Woo Woo, Nyuck, Nyuck, Nyuck and all the sight gags you can handle are back and more impious than ever in The Three Stooges. The very cool film had me in stitches with inane comedy that hits the top of my laughter barometer.  Although mainly a guy film, most all who can remember the knuckleheaded trio will love the insane comical antics th...

The Raid: Redemption Theatrical Review
The Raid: Redemption   The Raid: Redemption Theatrical Review
(John Delia)  4/12/2012 4:20 PM EDT
A kick to the head, a fist to the body, guns blazing, explosions rocking the hallways, knives slashing, bodies everywhere and that's only the first 15 minutes of film The Raid: Redemption.  With amazing choreography, realistic combat and creative cinematography the movie makes a big hit.  Don't look for an original story, but that's not t...

Lockout Theatrical Review
Lockout   Lockout Theatrical Review
(John Delia)  4/12/2012 11:01 AM EDT
With a mixture of tongue in cheek comedy and sci-fi action Lockout does an average job of entertaining male teens through adults.  The fast paced film reminds me however, of Escape From New York another futuristic film that features some very mean characters and a lot of brutality. Lockout features some very mean looking characters so it's har... Read More

American Reunion Theatrical Review
American Reunion   American Reunion Theatrical Review
(John Delia)  4/6/2012 8:45 AM EDT
Comedy runs high in the sequel American Reunion with the whole cast returning from American Pie.  Although the film does provide a lot of laughs, it may be somewhat hackneyed with each of the characters getting in similar problems from the original film.  But, if it's just a mindless feature you want to clear out the emotions from a dull ...

Wrath of the Titans Theatrical Review
Wrath of the Titans   Wrath of the Titans Theatrical Review
(John Delia)  3/29/2012 8:49 AM EDT
This sequel called Wrath of the Titans happens to be one of those films that if you hadn't seen the first one, you may get a little lost in the plot. Not, that the plot is very difficult here, but read the following film description and you male tweens to twenties should get the idea even if you haven't seen Clash of the Titans. A decade after...

South Park Blu-ray Review
South Park: The Complete Fifteenth Season   South Park Blu-ray Review
(John Delia)  3/29/2012 8:47 AM EDT
The boys are back at it again in Blu-ray with the release of South Park: The Complete Fifteenth Season and it's UNRATED.  Of course, if you are a fan, you probably already new that.  The hilarious fourteen episodes are devoid of ads and any other interference so you don't have a lag in the madness we aficionados have enjoyed for the last ...
