Evil Dead Theatrical Review
Evil Dead   Evil Dead Theatrical Review
(John Delia)  4/4/2013 8:33 AM EDT
New faces save Evil Dead from getting inane in this respectable remake of a Sam Remi film. The horror flick has some very good special effects, CGI and makeup that turn the film into a gory blood bath.  Although the script does follow the original made in 1981, the evil in this film far outweighs anything Remi did 32 years ago. Horror fans sho... Read More

The Host Theatrical Review
The Host   The Host Theatrical Review
(John Delia)  3/28/2013 5:03 PM EDT
Taking her new book to the screen, Producer Stephenie Meyer tries for a good opening this weekend for the film adaptation of The Host.  Hitting the target audience with a jolt of romance fantasy, the teens to twenties females should give the film a strong attendance. However, with hardly any promotion of the film, the male audiences will have ... Read More

Olympus Has Fallen Theatrical Review
Olympus Has Fallen   Olympus Has Fallen Theatrical Review
(John Delia)  3/22/2013 9:06 AM EDT
One of the best action films this year, Olympus Has Fallen provides continuous action, intrigue and drama with a subject fresh in the news.  Adding a bit of realism during the release of the film is the recent activity in North Korea making this film a possible wakeup call. This work of fiction by Film District gives a chilling reminder that w... Read More

Spring Breakers Theatrical Review
Spring Breakers   Spring Breakers Theatrical Review
(John Delia)  3/21/2013 10:08 PM EDT
Glitz, glamor, gross, guns, and gratuitous nudity, violence, drugs and sex, that's the sum of the new film Spring Breakers in theaters this weekend.  While they bill the film as a comedy, there's not much of that and as for drama the acting's so poor it's more laughable than tragic. I will say that they did get something right for the target a... Read More

The Croods Theatrical Review
The Croods   The Croods Theatrical Review
(John Delia)  3/21/2013 10:05 PM EDT
You've seen Ice Age, maybe even remember The Flint Stones, but they can't hold a candle to The Croods, a prehistoric family that puts the an A in adventure and animation with characters that are downright silly and I mean that in a good way. The very funny script, excellent 3D and a fine recognizable voice cast are the reasons to take your family t... Read More

Admission Theatrical Review
Admission   Admission Theatrical Review
(John Delia)  3/21/2013 10:01 PM EDT
An interesting film for the subject matter that's shows the inner workings of a student Admissions Department of a major college and a spoof that dampens the credibility of that office plagues the film Admission, now in theaters. The film could have easily been an episode on a television show rather than a major release at the movies.The admissions... Read More

Life of Pi Blu-ray Review
Life of Pi   Life of Pi Blu-ray Review
(John Delia)  3/18/2013 3:10 PM EDT
From flying fish to tiger strikes Life of Pi comes to home video with an adventure that will startle, amaze and exhilarate your senses.  The movie received 11 Oscar nominations and won 5 including Best Director for Ang Lee.  The production features some of the best cinematography I have ever seen on home video, especially the knock out 3D...

The Call Theatrical Review
The Call   The Call Theatrical Review
(John Delia)  3/15/2013 8:09 AM EDT
Bringing the workings of the police emergency 911 to the screen, The Call makes for a very edgy thriller with a story that will keep you on the edge of your seat.  The excellent direction of the terror script with fine acting from Halle Berry and Abigail Breslin makes everything so real I found myself gripping the seat at times.  Jor...

Lore Theatrical Review
Lore   Lore Theatrical Review
(John Delia)  3/14/2013 4:24 PM EDT
One of the most sensitive and disturbing themes fuels Lore, a mesmerizing drama opening this weekend in theaters.  It's about the opposite side of the coin when Germany gets taken by the Allies during WWII. Seen through the eyes of a 14-year-old German girl, this film takes you on a journey that will shock, outrage and sadden. It's 1945 a... Read More

One Night With The King Blu-ray Review
One Night With The King   One Night With The King Blu-ray Review
(John Delia)  3/14/2013 9:34 AM EDT
The historical drama One Night with the King that follows the Biblical Esther, Queen of Persia has come to Blu-ray for the first time.  The film features an extremely emotional story with widescreen vistas that lend to the enchantment.  With a huge recognizable cast, visual effects wizard and director Michael O. Sajbel it contains every p... Read More
