I WANTED TO DO A REVIEW ON THE BEST 3 SERIES IN ENGLISH I HAVE WATCHED COMPLETELY OR AT LEAST MANY SEASONS SO FAR. Series have developed into a mixture between the beauty of the visual arts of film and the time frame of televsion, which for me is a new adiction.
1. GAME OF THRONES:
I can imagine that when the director had this book in his hands for the first time he might have been transported to another world, because that is what he actually created. I know many fans of the books might have their reservations on desicions he might have taken, but he is a true genious. The locations, the art department, the scenagraphy built, the actors and actrices chosen for each role, evverything is a work of art and always respecting the truth in the storyline. George RR Martin wrote a masterpiece and HBO made it visual art.
2. DOWNTON ABBEY
There is no wonder why this 6 Season Series has won so many awards throughout it’s years. Every episode of this story brings a continuity that keeps you wanting more, you get wrapped up in a world that existed before our time, in a very strict society and historical moments that are filled with the beauty of long dresses and jewels with the contrast of the working class, It’s the story of a place, the people and a time. The miticulous work of historians with the art department and the fact that the acting is so well done make it a beautful piece to watch.
As soon as the Intro begins you get filled with an atmosphere of mystical, power & a feeling of fierce warriors sorrounding you with every beat of the drums. The photography and art department have made an amazing job combining color, tones and historically accurate wardrobe, armery, locations and scenography. The series brings characters that actually existed thanks to the help of History Channel and HBO brought amazing production and storyline to the table. For me, I think it’s worth watching every episode.
This is by far one of my favorite movies of this year..The colours,the smell (you can actually smell the cooking), the beautiful landscapes of France and the rich Indian culture. It has my 10 points approval!

THE CABINET OF DR CALIGARI (1919) 71min, German.
My fellow moviegoers here are some behind the scenes secrets of the movie CABINET OF DR.CALIGARI, directed by Robert Wiene and considered the first expressionist film in history.
Under the command of Dr Caligari, Cesare, in a deep sleep strange to this world, he stands in the coffin. His empty gaze at the body of a young bleeding woman that was found in the morning. His face twisted in horror.
Through a flashback Wiene tells the story of Dr. Caligari (Werner Kraus), hypnotist who uses his powers to commit murder by means of a man called Cesare (Conrad Veidt).
Here are some interesting facts about the making of the film:
1. The original script was altered, instead of showing as responsible for the crimes the morbid Dr Caligari, he solves the end of the film blaming a mentally ill person.
2 The inclusion of a preface and the change of script in the project was because it started with Fritz Lang and then passed into the hands of Weine.
3 Scenery would be requested to no less than the painter Alfred Kubin, but eventually it fell into the hands of the architect Hermann Warm and colleagues (belonging to the group of expressionist Der Sturm).
4 Erich Pommer appears as a director, the decorator regards that while Pommer oversaw the project, the actual producer was Rudolf Meinert.
