"TOM JONES" (1963) Review

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

"TOM JONES" turned out to be the detik non-Hollywood film that won the coveted Oscar prize. Directed oleh 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 oleh a landowner in mid-18th...

 The Haunting
The Haunting
Hi guys, I will be menulis 2 horror films and they're The Innocents and The Haunting. Both films are based on novels and I'll write a review about them right now.

The Haunting

Considering that was made in the 60's and there were no modern technologies for CGI at that time. I cinta how they use the Psychological fear that are shown in both Nell and Theo.
It is actually unclear if the house is haunted atau that Nell did it for the sake of attention, I would definitely go with the latter because Nell is mentally unstable in my opinion and that she has been looking after her ailing mother prior to...

"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...

Below is my review of the 1939 classic, "STAGECOACH", which was directed oleh John Ford:


"STAGECOACH" (1939) Review

The tahun 1939 is regarded oleh many film critics and moviegoers as the best tahun for Hollywood films. According to them, Hollywood was at the height of its Golden Age, and this particular tahun saw the release of an unusually large number of exceptional movies, many of which have been honored as memorable classics when multitudes of other films of the era have been largely forgotten. I do not harbor the same view as these critics and moviegoers. I can only view at least a handful of...

Audrey Hepburn
One of the best aktris to come out of the 50s and 60s is easily Audrey Hepburn: she had style, she had class, she was sophisticated and always played the good girls (with a bit of a spin). Charming and easy to get along with she was the perfect poster girl for the 50s and early 60s (when most of her notable work was done). However, she is often looked over and chalked up to being an "icon" lebih than a viable actress. However, she had some great ones, and no, they weren't just "breakfast at tiffany's" and "My Fair Lady" -- in my view the former is only 3 while the latter barely makes the...

"EVELYN PRENTICE" marked the third collaboration between William Powell and Myrna Loy in 1934.

The 4 Protagonists
Hi guys, I had seen this film many years yang lalu 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 cinta 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 cinta 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...

Sometime during World War II, novelist Raymond Chandler was hired oleh Paramount Pictures to co-write the 1944 film classic, "DOUBLE INDEMNITY", with writer-director Billy Wilder. Another two years passed before the studio assigned him to write a post-war film noir movie, 1946’s "THE BLUE DAHLIA".

"OTHER MEN'S WOMEN" (1931) Review

Adultery is rarely treated with any kind of maturity in fiction - whether in novels, plays, film 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, televisi series, novel atau play that dealt with adultery in a mature manner. atau 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 judul of the 1931 movie, "OTHER MEN'S WOMEN", any person...

"WUTHERING HEIGHTS" (1939) Review

Considering the popularity of the Brontë sisters, it is not surprising that there have been considerable movie, stage and televisi 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 fan 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) oleh charlotte Brontë and Anne Brontë's 1848 novel, "The Tenant of Wildfell Hall"....

"LITTLE WOMEN" (1949) Review

Louisa May Alcott's 1868 novel is a bit of a conundrum for me. I have never been a fan of the novel. I have read it once, but it failed to maintain my interest. Worse, I have never had the urge to read it again. The problem is that it is that sentimental family dramas - at least in print - has never been appealing to me. And this is why I find it perplexing that I have never had any problems watching any of the film atau televisi adaptations of her novel.

One of those adaptations proved to be Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer's 1949 adaptation, which was produced and directed...

"RED-HEADED WOMAN" (1932) Review

According to Hollywood legend, at least a handful of film made during the period known as the Pre-Code Era (1929-1934) had pushed the boundaries of on-screen decency so deeply that they may have been responsible for the stringent enforcement of the Hays Code between the mid-1930s and the late 1960s. One of those film happened to be MGM's 1932 comedy called "RED-HEADED WOMAN".

Based upon Katherine Brush's 1931 novel, "RED-HEADED WOMAN" told the story of Lilian "Lil" Andrews, a young secretary at the Legendre Company who uses sex to advance her position there...

"MILDRED PIERCE" (1945) Review

I have been a fan of the 1945 movie, "MILDRED PIERCE" for years. Ever since the age of twelve. But many years have passed since I felt the urge to watch it. When I learned about the baru saja HBO version of the story, I decided to re-visit the past and watch the movie again.

Based upon James M. Cain’s 1941 novel, "MILDRED PIERCE" is about a middle-class woman who struggle to make a new life for herself and her daughters and maintain their social position, following the break-up of her marriage during the last years of the Great Depression. After a difficult search...

"DEVIL AND THE DEEP" (1932) Review

I am not one of those movie pasangan who seemed to my selection of films to one particular genre atau period in filmaking. Nor do I regard films from one particular era to be superior to another. I either enjoy an individual film atau 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 SEA HAWK" (1940) Review

If anyone has ever read Rafael Sabatini’s 1915 novel, "The Sea Hawk", he atau she has clearly seen that the so-called 1940 film adaptation with the same judul . . . is not the same story. I have never read Sabatini’s novel. But I have a friend who has. And according to him, the 1924 silent film adaptation bore a closer resemblance to the novel.

In the end, it is not surprising that this 1940 adventure bore little atau no resemblance to Sabatini’s novel – aside from the main protagonist enduring a stint as slave aboard a Spanish galley. Although Warner Brothers...

Tyrone Power's career took a strange turn during the post-World War II years. Although he still managed to maintain his position as one of Twentieth Century Fox's puncak, atas stars during the remainder of the 1940s, something happened as the 1950s dawned.
