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 Guardians Of The Galaxy

'Guardians of the Galaxy' Errs on the Side of Humanity

Thursday July 31, 2014
'Guardians of the Galaxy' Errs on the Side of Humanity

'Guardians of the Galaxy' is just pure, unadulterated joy.

Movie Review for Blood Widow

'Blood Widow' is Uninspired Slasher Blandness

Thursday July 31, 2014
'Blood Widow' is Uninspired Slasher Blandness

'Blood Widow from Hell' (simply known as 'Blood Widow' abroad) is devoid of creativity and skill, the entire project still severely lacking in inspiration.

Movie Review for Enemy

Though Handsomely Produced, 'Enemy' is Ultimately Pretty Silly

Thursday July 31, 2014
Though Handsomely Produced, 'Enemy' is Ultimately Pretty Silly

'Enemy' is meant to intrigue. It poses questions it has no real interest in answering. It builds a puzzle with no real solution.

Movie Review for Possessed

'Possessed' Offers Nothing in the Way of Surprise

Thursday July 31, 2014
'Possessed' Offers Nothing in the Way of Surprise

'Possessed' just doesn't try hard enough. It doesn't think up of enough ways to poke fun at the conventions of Asian horror.

Movie Review for Trophy Wife

'Trophy Wife' is Nothing But Crass Nonsense

Thursday July 31, 2014
'Trophy Wife' is Nothing But Crass Nonsense

'Trophy Wife' is just absurd. If there was ever a real point to the story, it's lost by the time the movie gets to its ridiculous climax.

‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ Writer/Director James Gunn Talks About Making An OddBall Blockbuster

Filmmaker James Gunn, even after having written the 'Scooby Doo' movies, is still mostly a cult figure in Hollywood. Now, Gunn has been tapped to write and direct what has been described as the riskiest film project for Marvel since 'Iron Man': the cosmic action adventure film, 'Guardian of the Galaxy.'

Dave Bautista on How Much His Role in 'Guardians of the Galaxy' Means to Him

Dave Bautista (perhaps better known as just 'Batista') is not the first wrestler to make it to the big screen. He seems determined, however, to be the first one to be taken seriously. In a recent press conference with the Asian press, the actor revealed that he broke down when he first heard that he got the part. Bautista talks further about how important the role is to him in this recorded roundtable.

A Candid Talk with 'Guardians of the Galaxy' Star Zoe Saldana

A Candid Talk with 'Guardians of the Galaxy' Star Zoe Saldana

Saldana has certainly become to the go-to person when a movie requires some physicality from its female lead. Saldana spoke candidly with a roundtable of reporters in Singapore recently about her philosophy when it comes to roles for women in films, as well as details of her upcoming Marvel movie where she plays Gamora, a assassin often described as 'the most dangerous woman in the galaxy.'

Movie Review for Black Butler

'Black Butler' is All Talk

Thursday July 24, 2014
'Black Butler' is All Talk

The film just throws in twist after twist, the characters constantly chasing red herrings and then stopping to explain what exactly they got wrong.

Movie Review for Survivor

'Survivor' Can’t Hide Its B-Movie Nature

Thursday July 24, 2014
'Survivor' Can’t Hide Its B-Movie Nature

The movie suffers dearly from poor writing and subpar direction. While a couple of clever VFX shots offer the illusion of a much higher budget, basic filmmaking mistakes give away its B-movie nature.
