Ben-Hur [1959]

Epic.That’s all there is to say. Winner of 11 academy awards including best picture, best actor (Charlton Heston), and supporting actor, “Ben-Hur” is one of cinema’s most precious treasures. Long (almost 4 hours), but incredibly entertaining and deeply moving. The finale left me breathless! A wonderful movie in […]

Frenzy [1972]

 “Do I look like a sex murderer to you? Can you imagine me creeping around London, strangling all those women with ties? That’s ridiculous… For a start, I only own two”. Hitchcock at his best, telling the story of London strangler (who only murders young women), and an […]

The Freshman [1925]

“The Freshman” is one of Harold LLoyd’s best work. He plays a nerdy college student who’ willing to do anything to become popular on campus. But of course its no easy task, especially when the college bully humiliates him in front of the whole school. This one features […]

White Zombie [1932]

Nobody can pull it off better than Bela Lugosi. In “White Zombie”, he plays a voodoo master who transforms a bride to be into a soulless zombie. His fiancee must now save her before its too late. Classic horror movie with a chilling, one of a kind atmosphere. […]

Torn Curtain [1966]

They said it was one of Hitchcock’s weakest movies. I agree on that. But what they really meant was: weak compared to his other films. In fact, Torn Curtain is not a bad movie at all. The first 30 minutes are a bit confusing but then the story […]

Dark Passage [1947]

“You know, it’s wonderful when guys like you lose out. Makes guys like me think maybe we got a chance in this world”. Very stylish Bogie/Bacall film noir about an escaped prisoner who undergoes plastic surgery and hides in a woman’s appartment while healing. Then he tries to […]

Glen Or Glenda? [1953]

“Bevare of the big green dragon that sits on your doorstep. He eats little boys, puppy dog tails and big fat snails. Take care! Bevare!” Ed Wood directs and stars in this hilariously bad movie about a guy who doesn’t know how to tell his fiancee that he […]
