This is difficult to achieve, but let's do it! I'll prepare my 100 best this weekend and let's tally the results so that we can come up with our own lists.

Why not thru voting procedure, joey?

I hope the list will not be peppered by movies that were made only in the last 20 years. It will be a great disservice to people like Lamberto Avellana and Gerry de Leon.

Wow......nice thoughts indie. If AFI can come up with 100 Best Films, we can do it also. Lists should have no boundaries from the 1st Golden Age up to the indie films at present. Whew!

The problem is the availability of these films. Almost thousand were already lost and beginning to be extinct. I can only count a handful from this era that I saw during my childhood days in channel 7. Those made by LVN, Sampaguita and Premiere studios.

Maybe someone ought to make the list in alphabetical order, then we can nominate more - those not on the list, then afterwards when a list of say 250 films is complete, vote on it, with votes of those known knowlegeable film critics counting as 10 each, and those of regular forumers, one, that should prevent newer or popular films with lesser content topping the list...  and there should be a cut off date, say, films made and exhibited by December 31, 2006.

All dramas? No comedies? No musicals?

Giliw Ko was a musical, Jack & Jill was a comedy, Pepot Artista was part comedy and musical with some dramatic moments, Biyaya Ng Lupa had a great opening scene complete with music and dancing while Stardoom & High School Circa '65 had musical numbers in it as well...

I suggest the announcement of the TOP 100 be made in time for PINOYDVD'S anniversary on November.

100 Acclaimed Filipino Movies

That's according to roving international film critic-writer Mel Tobias
in his fourth and latest book, One Hundred Acclaimed Tagalog Movies
(Sineng Mundo, Best of Philippine Cinema), published by Peanut Butter
Publishing in Vancouver, Canada, where Mel is now based. His three other
books are Flashbacks -- Hong Kong Cinema After Bruce Lee (Gulliver
Books), Memoirs of an Asian Moviegoer (South China Morning Post) and KPS
Video Express -- the Movie Guide, Volume 1.
A native of Santa Rosa, Laguna, Mel (who writes the column Living in
Canada for the Philippine STAR) stayed for 24 years in Hong Kong where
he worked as promotions director of the former British colony's leading
brewery, at the same time writing about films for The Hong Kong Standard
and, using the pen name Eli Carpena, for South China Morning Post and
other Hong Kong magazines and newspapers.
He was also New York Variety's Hong Kong correspondent. For more than
two decades, Mel has been covering film festivals around the world,
including Cannes, Hawaii, Sebastian, Madrid, San Francisco, Toronto,
Tokyo, Chicago, Berlin, etc.
In Vancouver which he now calls "my second home," Mel is the
Entertainment/Lifestyle Editor of the Philippine Chronicle. On the side,
he also acts in theater.
