Red 2 Theatrical Review
Red 2   Red 2 Theatrical Review
(John Delia)  7/20/2013 1:23 AM EST
The raging action comedy Red 2 comes to theaters, but its Catherine Zeta-Jones and Helen Mirren that command the screen.  While the whole crew is back for a second dip into the world of International Crime while on the run from their former CIA bosses, it's these two ladies that make an impact. For a fun romp around Europe from London to Mosco... Read More

Grown Ups 2 Theatrical Review
Grown Ups 2   Grown Ups 2 Theatrical Review
(John Delia)  7/11/2013 11:35 AM EST
It's a hilarious bunch of nonsense called Grown Ups 2 that follows its previous hilarious bunch of nonsense.  If you like Adam Sandler's wacky comedy style that mostly works with sight gags, tongue in cheek quips and a lot of monkey business then you are a target for this film. Others may not want to waste their time.  Adam brings... Read More

Pacific Rim Theatrical Review

(John Delia)  7/11/2013 8:37 AM EST
Pump yourself up for this one because Pacific Rim takes action to new heights with a noisy display of explosive combat.  The battle scenes rise to shock and awe much like you've seen in films like Battleship and Transformers, but that's the point of going to see this genre of film now isn't it.  If you drag your lady along however, you ma...

Despicable Me 2 Theatrical Review

(John Delia)  7/3/2013 8:50 AM EST
They're back again those funny characters that make the animated film Despicable Me 2 a hilarious situation comedy that delivers the laughter.  I'm speaking of the pill shaped ‘work a bee's' for the villain Gru called Minions.  In this sequel they dominate the screen and give most of the audience what they came for, a lot of chuckle...

The Lone Ranger Theatrical Review
The Lone Ranger   The Lone Ranger Theatrical Review
(John Delia)  7/3/2013 8:43 AM EST
Taking a chance on an old-timer favorite, producer and director Gore Verbinski brings a remake of The Lone Ranger to the big screen.  Loosely based on the 1956 movie starring Clayton Moore and Jay Silverheels, his casting of Armie Hammer and Johnny Depp somewhat mirrors the two original players and delivers a solid hit. The film opens at ...

The Heat Theatrical Review
The Heat   The Heat Theatrical Review
(John Delia)  6/28/2013 9:24 AM EST
One of the better comedies to be released this year, The Heat has a lot going for it with a fine cast, good comedic writing and some nice direction from Paul Feig who gave us Bridesmaids. Of course it doesn't hurt to have Melissa McCarthy one of the top comics in the business as your co-star. If you're looking for a lot of laughs from a plo... Read More

6 Souls Blu-ray Review
6 Souls   6 Souls Blu-ray Review
(John Delia)  6/27/2013 2:12 PM EST
Disturbing and violent the mystery thriller 6 Souls creates a cool brand of horror that creeps and surprises.  The film has very good acting, good direction and some excellent cinematography with special effects.  Now on Blu-ray and DVD the movie makes for a spooky night in your home. The story centers on forensic psychologist Dr. Ca...

Monsters University Theatrical Review
Monsters University   Monsters University Theatrical Review
(John Delia)  6/21/2013 8:35 AM EST
Bringing back two of my favorite cartoon characters Sully and Mike with a prequel called Monsters University, Pixar presents renewed delight.  The madness that the two opposites brought to Monsters Inc more than ten years ago doubles in Monsters University, while providing a lot of heart and a college year full of laughs. A follow up to a...

World War Z Theatrical Review
World War Z   World War Z Theatrical Review
(John Delia)  6/21/2013 8:26 AM EST
The opening sequence in the zombie thriller World War Z gets so intense that I white knuckled as I grabbed the arms of my seat, the film's that shocking.  These 15 minutes alone are worth the price of admission.  It's like watching a Roland Emmerich film on steroids (Day After Tomorrow, 2012) only more daunting.  If you like films th...

Jack the Giant Slayer Blu-ray Review
Jack the Giant Slayer   Jack the Giant Slayer Blu-ray Review
(John Delia)  6/17/2013 9:17 AM EST
Taking special effects and sound to a new level Jack the Giant Slayer entertains with adventure and excitement.  The audience for the film targets teen males to thirties and women who like action films.  The movie will be released on Blu-ray in a special combo pack that includes the DVD, UltraViolet and a code for a 14 Day XBOX Life Gold ...
