Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy Theatrical Review
Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy   Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy Theatrical Review
(John Delia)  1/6/2012 8:42 AM EST
The British movie Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy is not for everyone.  It's a mind-numbing film for audiences that crave an involving storyline, can deal with British accents and are into the underpinning of espionage that fueled The Cold War in the 1970's.  I am not a big fan of films like this one, but those who are into author John le Ca...

Archer Blu-ray Review
Archer: The Complete Season Two   Archer Blu-ray Review
(John Delia)  12/30/2011 10:13 PM EST
All you Archer lovers take heed, now on Blu-ray Archer: The Complete Season Two with every minute of the hilarious spy spoof unencumbered by those pesky commercials.  If you think season one was crude, you can bet the second season has more wild and wacky episodes that could embarrass a drunken sailor.  Archer is an adult animated, h...

War Horse Theatrical Review
War Horse   War Horse Theatrical Review
(John Delia)  12/24/2011 6:14 PM EST
Steven Spielberg adds another holiday film to the mix, but this one tends to skew higher on the age scale due the violence and cruelty.  The film called War Horse has a bountiful cast of good actors, a bold story and brilliant cinematography that sometimes seems ‘too' real.  Although targeted to young boys, the film gets a little to...

We Bought A Zoo Theatrical Review

(John Delia)  12/22/2011 10:32 PM EST
The heartfelt drama We Bought A Zoo comes to town and it's for the whole family.  A true story perfect for the holiday season with an uplifting account that shows what one family can do to help a community while healing themselves.  I am a fan of this kind of film as it reminds us of the principles on which America is built, with dreams, ...

The Adventures of Tintin Theatrical Review
The Adventures of Tintin   The Adventures of Tintin Theatrical Review
(John Delia)  12/21/2011 9:13 AM EST
Making the most of the animation called performance capture Steven Spielberg creates a wonderful kid adventure with The Adventures of Tintin.  The veritable rollercoaster ride of a film is even more spectacular in 3D.  Targeted at lads of any age and for good family fun, rush to see the full feature film The Adventures of Tintin. The...

The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo Theatrical Review
The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo   The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo Theatrical Review
(John Delia)  12/20/2011 7:42 PM EST
The mystery and suspense in The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo gets menacing giving audiences an unsuspected thriller.  I liked this version over the foreign release of the movie in 2010 because it's in English, has Daniel Craig and the story moves along as it should, unencumbered by faulty direction.  For those who like a good detective dra...

Mr. Popper's Penguins Blu-ray Review
Mr. Popper's Penguins   Mr. Popper's Penguins Blu-ray Review
(John Delia)  12/20/2011 9:22 AM EST
For the holidays, Fox has released Mr. Poppers Penguins in Blu-ray combo packs, Blu-ray and DVD's.  It's true family fare and a fun gift for the youngsters.  The combo pack has the film in both Blu-ray and DVD and includes a digital download disc as well.  The film stars Jim Carrey as Tom Popper a guy who's had a tough life grow...

Young Adult Theatrical Review
Young Adult   Young Adult Theatrical Review
(John Delia)  12/15/2011 5:01 PM EST
Take two aspirins and go to bed, a great remedy for Young Adult, an over stated understatement that never gets entertaining.  Billed as a comedy, the more the cast tries to make it one, the lesser it becomes.  If you like a film with angst riddled plot, underdeveloped characters and only one very good performance than you are the only dem...

Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows Theatrical Review
Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows   Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows Theatrical Review
(John Delia)  12/15/2011 1:00 PM EST
Another fine adventure for the London detective becomes afoot in the newest 19th century Sir Arthur Conan Doyle crime story Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows.  The cast from the 2009 release reprises their roles under the able direction of Guy Richie making this outing even more exciting than the last. Don't skimp here; choose the theater wit... Read More

The Help Blu-ray Review
The Help   The Help Blu-ray Review
(John Delia)  12/12/2011 7:33 PM EST
Now on Blu-ray/DVD The Help hits the street on Tuesday December 6th and it has all the ear-markings of becoming the hottest item of the holiday season.  My prediction for this film at the Oscars include nominations for Best Picture, Best Actress, 2 Best Supporting Actress, Costumes and Musical Score.  It should do equally as well at the G...
