Straw Dogs Theatrical Review
Straw Dogs   Straw Dogs Theatrical Review
(John Delia)  9/15/2011 1:50 PM EDT
Here's a remake that actually makes for better entertainment.  It's called Straw Dogs and the cunning little tale takes you into the dark side of a dysfunctional town and renders fear.   I was very much blown away by the film from its mellow beginning to a buildup of concern and a final turn of events that made me shudder.  If y...

Drive Theatrical Review

Just to make sure that the trailer for Drive doesn't give you the wrong idea, NO, this is not a Jason Statham movie in the vein of the adrenaline pumping Transporter series.  Ryan Gosling holds his own in this rough surrealistic drama that inserts all the thrills shown in the preview and more.  If you like looking into the mind of a tough...

Our Idiot Brother Theatrical Review
Our Idiot Brother   Our Idiot Brother Theatrical Review
(John Delia)  8/27/2011 11:15 PM EDT
If you are looking for a comedy that has a lot of laughs and surprising situations, Our Idiot Brother fails to deliver.  Opening late in the summer wasn't a good idea since the film comes on the heels of a fairly good year for human humor.  A lot of ‘seen that' and ‘not too original' puts this film on a fast track ...

Fright Night Theatrical Review
Fright Night   Fright Night Theatrical Review
(John Delia)  8/18/2011 11:55 AM EDT
The scary, seething, suspenseful, gory, horror filled Fright Night left me turning my head on my way to the car following the showing.  It's a frightening flick that takes its toll on those that can have a love for the thrills that evil can provide.  You don't have to be Goth to enjoy, just a sense of humor and a need to feed your bloody ...

Conan The Barbarian Theatrical Review
Conan The Barbarian   Conan The Barbarian Theatrical Review
(John Delia)  8/18/2011 10:17 AM EDT
Hollywood has a way of reinventing things by rejuvenating characters and bringing them up to date with all the bells and whistles necessary to make it ‘fresh and new.'  This is the case of the film Conan the Barbarian where they have remade a classic adding all the CGI bells and whistles then throwing in some topless women for eye candy....

Final Destination 5 Theatrical Review
Final Destination 5   Final Destination 5 Theatrical Review
(John Delia)  8/11/2011 6:57 PM EDT
Shattering, piercing, gut wrenching, queasy, bloody, gouging, bone breaking, mind blowing, and yet mesmerizing that's what Final Destination 5 is all about, especially in 3D.  This is one of those select few films that use 3 Dimension well and it will blow your mind.  If you have never seen a Final Destination movie or are a big fan o...

The Help Theatrical Review
The Help   The Help Theatrical Review
(John Delia)  8/9/2011 9:25 PM EDT
It's hard to believe that it was only a short period of time ago that people were still separating black from white.  In The Help we find what a little thing like writing a book could do to stir up segregation and bring it to the forefront.  In this story there's a huge helping of right versus wrong with an unexpected outcome that reminds...

The Change-Up Theatrical Review
The Change-Up   The Change-Up Theatrical Review
(John Delia)  8/4/2011 7:22 AM EDT
Not much to say positive about The Change UP a lame film that tries every old trick in the book to grab your attention and make you think it's comedy.  The film suffers from ‘I've seen that before' and a sick humor syndrome.  If you think that watching a baby try to stick its hand in a blender is funny, then this is your kind of wei...

Rise of the Planet of the Apes Theatrical Review
Rise of the Planet of the Apes   Rise of the Planet of the Apes Theatrical Review
(John Delia)  8/4/2011 7:19 AM EDT
Do you have your Action/Adventure fill for summer, or are you ready for more?  Try Rise of the Planet of the Apes for a thriller that will have you on the edge of your seat.  I like the way Director Rupert Wyatt makes sure each exciting scene develops with emotion, first creating interest, then suspense finalizing in aggressive thrills. &...

Cowboys & Aliens Theatrical Review
Cowboys & Aliens   Cowboys & Aliens Theatrical Review
(John Delia)  7/28/2011 10:35 AM EDT
Strap your six-gun to your waist, tie the string around your leg and ride over to see the movie Cowboys & Aliens a rip snorting account of a universe invasion.  Seriously now, there will be no guns allowed in the movie theatre, not even toy type.  If you want some action with great special effects that make a film come alive with awes...
