Please, may you correct subjunctive, if it is the case, and other things of the following sentences?
On the one hand, it is admirable his vitality and that he has (or have) achieved to make a film so aged. On the other, moviegoers remembering his filmography miss the quality of his best pictures.
One thing is that some of the cast names are (or be) attractive for cinema fans and another one that that corresponds (or correspond) to anticipation generated.
Only a violent death taking place in front of her makes she reacts (or react) fifty years in delay.
May it be said "in delay" as for something taking place fifty years after the moment it had to occur?
Place and time shifting do not prevent developed action be (or is) clear and understandable
Thanks a lot

What about "in delay"?
We don't use 'may' with 'you' for permission as you have done, above [underlined].
Can/Could/Will/Would you correct ... ?
May I ask you to correct ... ?
The subjunctive is almost dead in modern English and there are only a few forms left. These forms seem to be used with certain phrases.
I don't see any need for a subjunctive form in any of your examples, BW. Actually, I'm not at all sure that I can even see any possibility for a subjunctive.
