Philbert Ortiz Dy

Phil Dy has leveraged the unique skills he acquired as an MIS graduate into careers that do not involve MIS. He did not use any of his programming skills while writing and producing short films, or working on the set of music videos for Kitchie Nadal and Up Dharma Down. He did not use project management when he contributed articles and photos to Pulp, Youngstar, Meg and 2bu. He failed to apply calculus to writing, editing and taking pictures for a local travel guide. Despite his misguided training, however, Phil won second place in the 1st Philippine Graphic/Fiction Awards, and was a finalist in the Cinemanila 2007 Scriptwriting contest. He is a movie buff, and now spends most of his time watching horrible movies so other people don't have to.

Movie Review for The Prince

'The Prince' is an Inferior Version of 'Taken'

Friday September 12, 2014
'The Prince' is an Inferior Version of 'Taken'

Unlike 'Taken', 'The Prince' is burdened with extraneous elements and is largely devoid of style and momentum.

Movie Review for Fields Of The Dead

'Fields of the Dead' Has No Enthusiasm for the Genre

Friday September 12, 2014
'Fields of the Dead' Has No Enthusiasm for the Genre

It is a film that doesn’t even really bother to make its most pivotal prop look good on screen. It chooses a shortcut over the simple appeal of a well-made prop, and that weakness permeates the entire movie.

Movie Review for Fairytale

'Fairytale' Buries Genuinely Creepy Images Inside a Tedious Plot

Friday September 12, 2014
'Fairytale' Buries Genuinely Creepy Images Inside a Tedious Plot

It spends much more of its time languishing in mediocrity, delivering rote, tedious scares and a schematic storyline brought to tepid life by a cast mostly made up of subpar actors.

Movie Review for The Anomaly

'The Anomaly' Doesn’t Understand How Silly It Is

Friday September 12, 2014
'The Anomaly' Doesn’t Understand How Silly It Is

Despite having a built-in time limit, the film struggles to build the urgency of each situation, as it largely fails to develop its conceit to a point where the details don't matter.

Movie Review for Jinn

'Jinn' Fakes It But Never Makes It

Friday September 12, 2014
'Jinn' Fakes It But Never Makes It

'Jinn' could have been a singular experience. Instead, it is a subpar version of everything we've already seen.

'A Million Ways to Die in The West' Lacks Jokes

Thursday September 4, 2014
'A Million Ways to Die in The West' Lacks Jokes

There may be a handful of funny moments in this film, but they are ultimately overwhelmed by the lame repetition.

'Ghost Boys: Return to Horror High' Offers Bad Horror and Bad Comedy

Thursday September 4, 2014
'Ghost Boys: Return to Horror High' Offers Bad Horror and Bad Comedy

Touted as a horror comedy, the film is unable to achieve either effect very well.

Movie Review for The Gifted

'The Gifted' Disowns Its Narrative

Thursday September 4, 2014
'The Gifted' Disowns Its Narrative

Rather than give us a bad story and tell us that it was bad, it probably would have been better to offer audiences a good story and just commit to that.

Movie Review for Nymph

Mermaids Just Aren't Very Scary in ‘Nymph’

Thursday September 4, 2014
Mermaids Just Aren't Very Scary in ‘Nymph’

The very first thing that must be said is that mermaids aren’t very scary. And even if you have a phobia of the creature, there isn’t a lot of it in the movie. The film takes its most unique feature and mostly keeps it out of the action.

Movie Review for Beauty And The Beast

Little is Gained in This Retelling of 'Beauty and the Beast'

Thursday September 4, 2014
Little is Gained in This Retelling of 'Beauty and the Beast'

Christophe Gans' 'Beauty and the Beast' strips away all the simple charm of the romance in order to deliver a big, computer generated climax.
