The Call   The Call Theatrical Review
(John Delia)  3/15/2013 8:09 AM EST
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   Lore Theatrical Review
(John Delia)  3/14/2013 4:24 PM EST
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

Don Jon   Don Jon Theatrical Review
(Roger Longenbach)  3/13/2013 2:50 PM EST
Jon has a problem.  For an outsider, you wouldn't know it.  While he isn't college educated, he's got a decent job, decent apartment, he loves to keep it clean, he has a nice ride, and he's able to get any woman he wants.  But that isn't enough for him.  He is addicted to watching porn.  But that's n...

(Roger Longenbach)  3/12/2013 9:56 AM EST
Is sharing things with your friends legal?  Is it okay to let a friend borrow a book, a movie or a CD of yours? Normally you answer yes, it's okay to let someone borrow one of those things.  But in the digital age, can you legally share those same things?  That is a question, that while has been answered in the courts, is still ...

The Incredible Burt Wonderstone   The Incredible Burt Wonderstone Theatrical Review
(Roger Longenbach)  3/12/2013 9:38 AM EST
As the opening night headliner for SXSW 2013, this movie opened to a packed house in Austin, Texas.  The crowd laughed along with Burt Wonderstone, but it was the movie's antagonist who steals the show.  Steve Carrell plays the adult Burt Wonderstone, who was given a magic kit for his birthday (which included an instructional videotape fr...

Emperor   Emperor Theatrical Review
(John Delia)  3/7/2013 3:46 PM EST
Opening this weekend Emperor brings a film based on a true event that brought closure to the war in the Pacific during WWII.  Questionable writing, direction and acting, the historical drama threads a romantic tale inside this biopic that tends to distract rather than add to the historical meetings between General McArthur and the Emperor of J...

Oz: The Great and Powerful   Oz: The Great and Powerful Theatrical Review
(John Delia)  3/7/2013 3:42 PM EST
The bold, dazzling and dramatic Oz the Great and Powerful opens this weekend with immense possibilities of being the top gainer so far this year. Nearly critic proof, the film should bask in great returns at the box office. However, although the film is a masterpiece of cinematography and CGI, the acting and direction never really reaches an accept... Read More

Jack the Giant Slayer   Jack the Giant Slayer Theatrical Review
(John Delia)  2/27/2013 4:34 PM EST
Taking special effects and sound to a new level for a 3D film, Jack the Giant Slayer entertains with adventure and excitement.  The audience for the film in my estimation targets preteen to 20's male population.  That said, the movie is critic proof with its giant size marketing budget and will certainly make a huge profit in the box-off ...

Officer Down   Officer Down Theatrical Review
(Chris Rebholz)  2/22/2013 2:48 PM EST
It's hard to say what type of film "Officer Down" wants to be, but it doesn't appear particularly successful on any front. Part cop drama, part whodunit, with a dusting of action dynamics, the picture marches forward without a game plan, creating a confusing, heavy effort that depends on twists to keep the audience invested, only it's...

Snitch   Snitch Theatrical Review
(John Delia)  2/21/2013 4:14 PM EST
Actor Dwayne Johnson gives a powerful performance in the action drama Snitch opening in theaters this weekend.  The film, Based on true accounts, takes you on a suspense filled ride under the fine direction of famous stuntman Ric Roman Waugh.  Although the film does provide insight about how the justice system works, the hard knocks story...
