"MIDDLEMARCH" (1994) Review

Many years have passed since I first saw "MIDDLEMARCH", the 1994 BBC adaptation of George Eliot's 1871 novel. Many years. I recalled enjoying it . . . somewhat. But it had failed to leave any kind of impression upon me. Let me revise that. At least two performances left an impression upon me. But after watching the miniseries for the detik time, after so many years, I now realize I should have paid closer attention to the production.

Directed oleh Anthony Page and adapted for televisi oleh Andrew Davies, "MIDDLEMARCH" told the story about a fictitious Midlands town...

There have been seven versions of A.E.W. Mason’s 1902 novel, "The Four Feathers". At least three of them were silent films. In 1939, British producer Alexander Korda released the first sound adaptation of the novel. This version was also the first one to be filmed in color. Directed oleh Korda’s brother, Zoltan Korda, "THE FOUR FEATHERS" starred John Clements, June Duprez, Ralph Richardson and C. Aubrey Smith.

Not only was this version of ”THE FOUR FEATHERS” the first to feature both sound and color, it is regarded oleh many as the best adaptation of Mason’s...

"THE LEGEND OF BAGGER VANCE" (2000) Review

I never saw "THE LEGEND OF BAGGER VANCE" in the movie theaters when it was first released years ago. I have a low tolerance of sports film and there are only a few that I consider favorit of mine. Another reason why I never saw this film in the theaters is that my family simply had no desire to see it.

Based upon Steven Pressfield's 1995 novel and directed oleh Robert Redford, "THE LEGEND OF BAGGER VANCE" was a box office flop. Worse, it had received mixed to negative reviews. Among the criticisms directed at the film was the accusation that the Bagger...

"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...

Many televisi viewers and moviegoers might be surprised to learn that Hollywood had aired a good number of televisi film that featured the topic of U.S. slavery. One of those film proved to be an offshoot of the 1977 miniseries, "ROOTS". However, another was the 1994 televisi movie called "RACE TO FREEDOM: THE UNDERGROUND RAILROAD".

"THE BLUE AND THE GRAY" (1982) Review

In 1982, CBS televisi aired a three-part miniseries about the experiences of two families during the Civil War. Sounds familiar? It should, for John Jakes had wrote something similar in three novels between 1982 and 1987 – namely the "NORTH AND SOUTH" Trilogy. Jakes’ novels were adapted for televisi in 1985, 1986 and 1994. However this miniseries was produced oleh Larry White and Lou Reda. And despite the mildly similar theme to the "NORTH AND SOUTH" saga, there are some vast differences.

"THE BLUE AND THE GRAY" had not been based upon any particular...

"INFAMOUS" (2006) Review

I have heard a lot about the two movie biographies based upon Truman Capote’s experiences, while working on his famous 1966 non-fiction novel, "In Cold Blood" – 2005's "CAPOTE" and "INFAMOUS", which hit movie theaters in the following year. But this review is about the detik film . . . namely "INFAMOUS". Written and directed oleh Douglas McGrath, the movie starred Toby Jones as Truman Capote.

To be honest, I did not know what to expect of "INFAMOUS". Since it was the detik Capote movie to be released, it failed to garner any prestigious critic awards atau nominations...
