Jeff, Who Lives at Home Theatrical Review
Jeff, Who Lives at Home   Jeff, Who Lives at Home Theatrical Review
(John Delia)  3/16/2012 5:15 PM EDT
This fun film comes out of left field changing wacky into wow.  The movie is called Jeff, Who Lives at Home and stars Jason Segel in a role not too unfamiliar for him.  The cool thing about Jeff, Who Lives at Home comes with the unexpected following Jeff's usual unpredictable day. The movie centers on Jeff (Jason Segel) a hapless gro...

Breakout Kings DVD Review
Breakout Kings: The Complete First Season   Breakout Kings DVD Review
(John Delia)  3/13/2012 9:37 AM EDT
A new wave of crime solvers has been released on DVD called Breakout Kings.  The weekly series that aired on A&E has completed its first season and is now available at your nearest retailer.  Tough and gritty, the special unit of the division of US Marshals delivers some harrowing action while chasing down escaped convicts. The s...

Silent House Theatrical Review
Silent House   Silent House Theatrical Review
(John Delia)  3/9/2012 8:39 AM EDT
What starts out as a horror flick turns into a terror mindbender in the movie Silent House.  Not a very good script and a bit too sophisticated for most fans of the genres, there's little doubt that it will not last at the box office.    Set in a northern rural lake area, Sarah (Elizabeth Olsen) has returned to her childhoo...

John Carter Theatrical Review

(John Delia)  3/8/2012 9:36 AM EDT
Technically John Carter shines as one of the better films I've seen in a couple of years.  The CGI, make-up, puppetry, mixed with fine live action characterization alone is worth the watch. Melding all this technology with the amazing fantasy story by Edgar Rice Burroughs and you have an excellent movie going experience. Much like the film Ava... Read More

Friends With Kids Theatrical Review
Friends With Kids   Friends With Kids Theatrical Review
(John Delia)  3/8/2012 8:52 AM EDT
It's cute, fun loving and complicated, yes Friends With Kids has all the markings of a chick flick. Yet for men the film does play well to couples, so gals grab a fine guy and drag him to see this funny little romantic comedy. Friends Julie (Jennifer Westfeldt) and Jason (Adam Scott), both single adults have known each other for years.  T...

Act of Valor Theatrical Review
Act of Valor   Act of Valor Theatrical Review
(John Delia)  2/24/2012 9:01 AM EDT
They're not actors, directors Mike McCoy and Scott Waugh did not want them to be.  The main characters in the movie Act of Valor are real Navy SEALs and they perform like one of the best freedom fighter units that the United States could ever produce.  The film does more than entertain; it gives Americans a chance to see what the armed fo...

Shame Theatrical Review
Shame   Shame Theatrical Review
(John Delia)  2/9/2012 10:58 AM EDT
Brilliantly written, cunningly directed and very disturbing Shame gives a fly on the wall view of forbidden sex.  What makes this film a work of art however, comes with the fine acting by Fassbender and Carey Mulligan who give performances worthy of an Oscar.  The story centers on Brandon (Michael Fassbender) a successful businessman...

Safe House Theatrical Review
Safe House   Safe House Theatrical Review
(John Delia)  2/9/2012 10:11 AM EDT
If you like your movies with constant action from beginning to end, then go and check out Safe House, a thrill a minute.  As a matter of fact, Ryan Reynolds has successfully crossed the line between comedy and drama with a performance like he has never delivered.  If all of a sudden you get an epiphany on where the film's going, not to wo...

The Woman in Black Theatrical Review
The Woman in Black   The Woman in Black Theatrical Review
(John Delia)  2/3/2012 8:36 AM EDT
For the first time being away from his comfort zone of playing Harry Potter, Daniel Radcliffe takes on a Victorian horror flick called The Woman in Black.  Although Radcliffe has shown a strong growth on his way to being an adult film star, he chose this film that has to prove he has made it.  Good choice or bad, he's now matured and read...

Chronicle Theatrical Review
Chronicle   Chronicle Theatrical Review
(John Delia)  2/2/2012 11:21 AM EDT
"It's all the buzz" and for good reason, Chronicle the movie takes aim for a box-office bundle with a "super-powered" film that's directed at one of the largest movie going audiences, pre-teen to 25.  The highly imaginative, intensely thrilling teen film pushes all the right buttons providing a feeding for the frenz...
