The Hangover Part III Theatrical Review
The Hangover Part III   The Hangover Part III Theatrical Review
(John Delia)  5/22/2013 2:39 PM EDT
Actually, although I did laugh at many of the comical mishaps to which characters were subjected, The Hangover Part III wasn't up to par with the original of the three episodes.  The good things were the return of the whole main cast that made The Hangover Part I a huge success, the downside was it turned out to be more repetitious than I thou...

Star Trek Into Darkness Theatrical Review

Picking up where he left off with the fine release of his first attempt at bringing back the Star Trek franchise, J.J. Abrams hits pay dirt again with Star Trek Into Darkness.  The exciting new chapter tantalizes the mind with amazing CGI and special effects while presenting an adventure that's reminiscent of earlier challenges for the Enterpr...

The Oranges Blu-ray Review
The Oranges   The Oranges Blu-ray Review
(John Delia)  5/14/2013 10:50 AM EDT
Working on the premise that a beautiful much younger woman could fall for a very much older man The Oranges targets an audience that understands a mid-life crisis. Describing the film as a scandal of sex and betrayal by the producers, in this day and age where nothing's impossible The Oranges fails to shock.  Even though the acting gets very g... Read More

Safe Haven Blu-ray Review
Safe Haven   Safe Haven Blu-ray Review
(John Delia)  5/14/2013 10:44 AM EDT
This mysterious and romantic film Safe Haven does a good job of twisting and turning through a very good script featuring stellar actors.  The plot starts with action and ends in a thriller under the fine direction of Lasse Hallström who's noted for the recent Salmon Fishing in Yemen.  The chemistry between actors Josh Duhamel and Ju...

The Great Gatsby Theatrical Review
The Great Gatsby   The Great Gatsby Theatrical Review
(John Delia)  5/9/2013 8:28 AM EDT
Director Baz Luhrmann who lost with Moulin Rouge and lost again with Australia, takes a chance with an F. Scott Fitzgerald novel The Great Gatsby turning it into a pop-up book for the screen.  While the CGI and sets do sparkle, he turns the storyline into a simple predictive tome set in an era of flappers and illegal booze.  Luhrmann gets...

Pain & Gain Theatrical Review
Pain & Gain   Pain & Gain Theatrical Review
(John Delia)  4/25/2013 3:29 PM EDT
Continuing to make exciting films Michael Bay releases Pain & Gain a movie that's reminiscent of his storytelling with the wild and enthusiastic Bad Boys, but far from his explosive films like Transformers and Armageddon. Here he takes you on a rollercoaster ride with a true crime story, a dark comedy that gets so absurd I found myself question... Read More

Mud Theatrical Review
Mud   Mud Theatrical Review
(John Delia)  4/25/2013 10:46 AM EDT
It's time for Matthew McConaughey to step up and do what he does best and in Mud he nails the role.  The cool little Indie has all the trappings of a good film including, a taught plot, good direction and a couple of kids that can act to boot. If you like movies that ease into the plot and hook you before you know it, rush out to see Mud. ... Read More

Oblivion Theatrical Review
Oblivion   Oblivion Theatrical Review
(John Delia)  4/19/2013 12:03 PM EDT
The opening sequence in the movie Oblivion is spectacular showing Earth as a devastated planet and the moon busting apart following an attack by an alien invasion. Well acted by a handful of cast members, the action movie mesmerizes as it spools out its grand design.  Both the cinematography and computer graphics are the stars of the film with... Read More

42 Theatrical Review

(John Delia)  4/12/2013 8:15 AM EDT
The movie 42 hits a home run in acting, directing and cinematography. The storyline takes you on a journey of courageousness in the face of racial discrimination and a door opener for others that followed. It's not just about baseball, but also of heroes and the right to play the game. The film centers on Jackie Robinson (Chadwick Boseman), a hig... Read More

On The Road Theatrical Review
On The Road   On The Road Theatrical Review
(John Delia)  4/8/2013 9:14 AM EDT
A road movie with a lot of sexual energy opens this weekend in South Florida.  The film is called On the Road and its brilliant cast makes it a winner.  Taken from a novel by Jack Kerouac, the film gives a view of 40's America and the challenges faced by a group of free-spirited friends.  It's 1947 New York City where we find Sa...
