I watched this adaptation of Jane Eyre yesterday and I have to admit that I did have great expectations for this one. However, I was rather disappointed than rewarded for watching it.

As a girl I was a huge Jane Eyre fan and I used to read the book 3 atau 4 times per year. The truth is that when I first read it I was too young to actually understand all the important issues, like social class, gender relations,

"CALIFORNIA" (1947) Review

I am a history nut. And one of my favorit historical periods that I cinta to study is the Antebellum Era of the United States. One of my favorit topics from this period is the California emas Rush. I also cinta movies. But despite this love, I have been constantly disappointed oleh Hollywood's inability to create a first-rate movie about emas Rush.

I may have to take back my komentar about Hollywood's inability to produce a first-rate movie atau televisi production about the emas Rush. There were at least three that managed to impress me. Unfortunately, the latest film...

RELEASE OF OLD BBC PRODUCTIONS

Since the release of the 1975 miniseries "NORTH AND SOUTH" in 2013, I have found myself wondering about other BBC productions from the 1960s and 1970s.

I recently discovered that the 1996 miniseries, "THE TENANT OF WILDFELL HALL" was the detik adaptation of Anne Brontë's novel. The first was a 1968 miniseries that starred Janet Munro, Bryan Marshall and Corin Redgrave. I also discovered that the 1999 miniseries, "WIVES AND DAUGHTERS", was not the first adaptation of Elizabeth Gaskell's novel. The BBC aired an earlier adaptation in 1971 that starred Zhivila Roche.

Does anyone know how to contact the BBC? I would like them to consider releasing these two productions in the near future.
"THE COUNT OF MONTE CRISTO" (1934) Review

I have seen only two versions of Alexandre Dumas père's 1845 novel, "The Count of Monte Cristo" in my past - the 1975 televisi version with Richard Chamberlain and the 2002 disney film with James Cavielzel. While membaca a good number of artikel about the movie versions of the novel, I came across numerous praises for the 1934 adaptation that starred Robert Donat. And since I happened to like Dumas' story so much, I decided to see how much I would like this older version.

Set between the last months of the Napoleonic Wars and the 1830s, "THE COUNT...

"GONE WITH THE WIND" (1939) Review

Several years ago, I had come across an artikel that provided a daftar of old classics that the penulis felt might be overrated. One of those film turned out to be the 1939 Oscar winning film, "GONE WITH THE WIND". Not only did the penulis accuse the movie of being both racist and sexist, he also claimed that the movie had not aged very well over the past seven decades.

Did I agree with the author? Well, let me put it this way. I would say that "GONE WITH THE WIND" has managed to withstand the tests of time . . . to a certain extent. As the penulis had pointed...

"THE PRISONER OF ZENDA" (1937) Review

I realize that many film critics and fan 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...

"PRINCE OF PERSIA: SANDS OF TIME" (2010) Review

Four years ago, I had listened to a radio talk tampil in which a movie reviewer compared Disney’s 2010 movie, "PRINCE OF PERSIA: SANDS OF TIME" to the 1962 Oscar winning film, ”LAWRENCE OF ARABIA”. Much to the detriment of the disney film. And as I sat there and listened to him bash "PRINCE OF PERSIA", it occurred to me that there still were plenty of idiots in this world . . . including radio disc jockeys.

Directed oleh Mike Newell and based upon the 2003 video game, ”PRINCE OF PERSIA” is about an orphaned jalan, street urchin in sixth century...
