Nae Caranfil – Philanthropy

Last night I was one of the lucky guests of Romanian Cinematheque at the Romanian Cultural Institute in Belgrave Square, London. Yesterday’s show was “Philanthropy” (Filantropica), directed by Nae Caranfil and starring Mircea Diaconu and Gheorghe Dinica. The film is a winner of Young European Jury Award at Mons Festival of Love Films 2002 and Public Prize at Paris Film Festival 2002.


Ruben Fleischer – Zombieland

Zombieland is a horror comedy flick that is sure to tickle your funny bone. The characters in this movie are doing the strangest things despite their situation. The situation is, they are just 4 of the very few survivors of the virus that turns humans into zombies.

halloween ii

Rob Zombie’s Halloween II

If you have watched the first Halloween then you already know what to expect from this second film – a lot of stabbing and blood. Even if you haven’t watched the first movie you would still be able to keep track with the story through Laurie’s recollection and flashbacks.

last vampire

Chris Nahon: Blood – The Last Vampire

This is a thriller, action and horror flick in one. The main character in the movie is Saya, a beautiful 16-year-old Asian girl who is actually 400 years old. She was born by a vampire with a human father and she had been fighting vampires since she was young.

Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs

Carlos Saldanha Takes Us To Ice Age 3

This is definitely the best Ice Age sequel ever and you’d surely laugh your hearts out from the beginning up to the very end as our wacky favorite characters such as Sid, Diego, Manfred and Ellie are out for another awesome adventure.

hotel for dogs

Thor Freudenthal’s Hotel for Dogs

It’s a story about the siblings Andi and Bruce who live in a foster home. In their foster home, dogs are strictly not allowed and the two had no choice but to follow the rules. Then, one day, they met an adorable dog that they just can’t let him go so they thought of a way on how to take care of their new pet.

Mark Herman’s “Boy in the Striped Pyjamas”

This is a very heart-warming movie that was set during World War II and when the Nazis put all the Jews in concentration camps. The movie is not focused on the war or the deaths of the Jews and how they were all tortured but it’s a story that focused on 2 little boys with very innocent minds that was bound by friendship when they should be, in fact, enemies.

The 2 main characters here are Bruno and Shmuel. Shmuel is the boy that is wearing the outfit that looks like striped pyjamas while Bruno is on the other side of the electrified fence, living a very comfortable life as the son of a Nazi commandant. Shmuel is held as a captive in a Jew concentration camp and as unlikely as it may seem but the two boys became friends even if they were separated by electric fences.

It’s a movie that will surely make anybody cry. The innocence of these 2 little boys and the situation that they are in is enough to make the toughest of hearts start to cry.

friday the 13th

Marcus Nispel’s Friday the 13

If you love a movie where most of the people die and just 1 or 2 lives in the end then Friday the 13th is always the best movie to watch. We’ve watched this since the first movie was released in 1980 and it became so popular that Friday the 13th is always feared that maybe Jason would come out and kill us all.

David S. Goyer and The Unborn

The Unborn is a movie about a spirit that transfers to a person’s body as it refuses to leave the world. The story starts with Casey Beldon, a woman who did not know she actually had a twin brother who died in the womb.
