These days a film that qualifies as “scary” is really just a conglomeration of CGI, ridiculous oozing make-up and simply put – excess of every possible sort. Granted there have been a few here and there that have made many an audience leap out of their skins, but there are many old-school horror/thriller films that did the same thing with mere camera techniques, angles, lighting and ambiance. Not to mention that the stories themselves are worth watching as opposed to modern plots, which consist of blood spurting scene after blood spurting scene. So for your viewing pleasure here is a...

"WUTHERING HEIGHTS" (1939) Review

Considering the popularity of the Brontë sisters, it is not surprising that there have been considerable movie, stage and telebisyon adaptations of their novels. I discovered there have been at least fifteen (15) adaptations of Emily Brontë's 1847 novel, "Wuthering Heights".

I might as well be frank . . . I am not a major tagahanga of the novel. I never have been. I do not dislike it, but I have always preferred the famous novels of the author's two sisters - namely "Jane Eyre" (1847) sa pamamagitan ng charlotte Brontë and Anne Brontë's 1848 novel, "The Tenant of Wildfell Hall"....

"PLATINUM BLONDE" (1931) Review

For over seven decades, many movie fans and critics have ignored the 1931 comedy, "PLATINUM BLONDE". They have dismissed it as some mediocre, obscure film from the early talkies period deemed unworthy of any real film criticism. But due to kamakailan interest in that particular era, the film’s reputation has grown over the past several years.

Directed sa pamamagitan ng Frank Capra and written sa pamamagitan ng Jo Swerling, "PLATINUM BLONDE" is a romantic comedy about a newspaper reporter named nilaga Smith, who becomes romantically involved with Ann Schuyler, a wealthy young socialite, after writing...

"TOM JONES" (1963) Review

Recently, I searched my memories for any pelikula produced outside of the United States that not only won the Academy Award for Best Picture, but I would also consider a personal paborito of mine. Only one came to mind - the 1963 movie, "TOM JONES".

"TOM JONES" turned out to be the segundo non-Hollywood film that won the coveted Oscar prize. Directed sa pamamagitan ng Tony Richardson, the movie is an adaptation of Henry Fielding's 1749 novel, "The History of Tom Jones, a Foundling", about the coming-of-age and misadventures of an illegitimate young man, raised sa pamamagitan ng a landowner in mid-18th...

Hi guys, I had seen this film many years nakaraan and I immediately feel with the film. Especially Judy Garland's portrayal of Dorothy Gale, so here is my review on this 1939 classic.

The Film

I really pag-ibig how the film starts of as a sepia tone, it wasn't only until Dorothy lands in Oz that it became multicolour. It was like stepping into a storybook universe that we always dream of!
I always pag-ibig Margaret Hamilton's portrayal as the Wicked Witch of the West, I kind of feel bad when she was killed of! But, Dorothy has no choice at all.

The Songs

The song 'Somewhere Over the Rainbow' has been my...

"OTHER MEN'S WOMEN" (1931) Review

Adultery is rarely treated with any kind of maturity in fiction - whether in novels, plays, pelikula and television. I am not saying that adultery has never been portrayed with any maturity. It is just that . . . well, to be honest . . . I have rarely come across a movie, telebisyon series, novel or play that dealt with adultery in a mature manner. Or perhaps I have rarely come across others willing to face fictional adultery between two decent people with some kind of maturity.

If one simply glanced at the pamagat of the 1931 movie, "OTHER MEN'S WOMEN", any person...

1. The King and I

This famous musical was the earliest that I saw and I pag-ibig the songs, but favourite scene was definitely the Small House of Uncle Thomas. I pag-ibig how the setting is Thai even-though the story is American.

"THE PRISONER OF ZENDA" (1937) Review

I realize that many film critics and fans would agree with my suspicion that the 1930s saw a great deal of action films released to theaters. In fact, I believe there were as high number of actions films released back then as they are now. Among the type of action films that flourished during that era were swashbucklers.

One of the most famous Hollywood swashbucklers released during the 1930s was "THE PRISONER OF ZENDA", producer David O. Selznick's 1937 adaptation of Anthony Hope's 1894 novel. This tale of middle European political intrigue and identity...

"DEVIL AND THE DEEP" (1932) Review

I am not one of those movie mga manliligaw who seemed to my selection of films to one particular genre or period in filmaking. Nor do I regard films from one particular era to be superior to another. I either enjoy an individual film or I do not.

Recently, I watched the 1932 melodrama called "DEVIL AND THE DEEP". The movie featured the screen debut of Charles Laughton as a submarine commander who expresses jealousy toward any man who pays attention to his long suffering wife. It also starred Tallulah Bankhead as the long suffering wife and the commander’s new...

"THE LIVES OF A BENGAL LANCER" (1935) Review

For years, I could never understand Hollywood's penchant for making so many films about the British Empire during the first half of the 20th century. The film industry had released films about imperial outposts under the control of other countries - like France, Spain and even the United States. But why did they film so many about British Imperialism? One of those films is the 1935 feature, "THE LIVES OF A BENGAL LANCER".

"THE LIVES OF A BENGAL LANCER" is based upon the 1930 memoirs of a former British Army officer named Francis Yeats-Brown. But if...
