The movie industry was greatly affected as brownouts were almost everyday lasting for more than 6 hours.

Top 5 Best Film Of 1980's

The late Fernando Poe,Jr stars in Agila
In 1980's ,Film directors became more daring and rebellious in their arts. This paved the way for the creation of the hated MTRB (Movies and Television Review Board) whose duty is to censored and banned movies and Television shows whose ideals and story depart from what Martial rules allows. This angered many film directors and defied Marcos 's MTRB and called it as a tool of supression of artistic expression. Despite the erratic relationship  between the movie industry and Marcos' censorship, 1980's proved to be one of the best era's in Philippine movies and television's history.

Top 5 of Best Pinoy Films of 1970's Era

The 70's is considered the darkest moments in the Philippines History as martial rule was then declared by President Ferdinand Marcos. If there's something good that had happened during this era is the awareness of people in Filipino Films. Many exceptionally good films were produced during this era and the birth of Experimental Cinema of the Philippines gave way to the career of many world acclaimed Filipino actors and film makers.
Again here is my list of my  top 5 best films of 1970's. My list is based on three factors namely; contribution to the promotion of Philippine Culture, acting and awards and recognition received

1.Maynila Sa Mga Kuko Ng Liwanag- this is the debut movie of Bembol Rocco who later became one of the finest actors of Philippine Cinema. It tells of the story of two ill-fated lovers who experience the harsh of city living. Hilda Koronel's beautiful face also graced the movie and her soft portrayal of Rocco's provincial lass girlfriend made the movie as touching and moving as it is.

2. Minsa'y isang Gamu=gamo- is a story of Filipinos and American erratic friendship. Nora Aunor plays the character of a Filipina nurse who's dream of working  in the US was cut dead by her brother's death in the hands of American troops in Subic US military base. Jay Ilagan gave a stunning performance as Aunor's boyfriend ironically applying to be a US Navy despite the humiliation his mother suffered in the custody of Military Base's personnel. The film was directed by Lupita Concio who gave new heights in film directing.

Nora Aunor- Still the best Actress!

Nora Aunor 
Last Monday, October 3 2011,Miss Nora Aunor's mini-series debuted  on TV5 's  prime time. The first installment of the series proved to be different from  the usual telenovela with its movie-like production and presentation. Each scene is like a take-off from movie scenes capturing the mood and emotion of the story with its cinematography. The whole cast show off what audiences will anticipate and expect from them each night as the full story begins to unfold.. Rossana Rocess is the one to watch for what she can show more as she plays the role of  the governor's wife whose hidden agenda is yet to be known. That scene where Eugene Domingo asked Elena how's Amang  after Elena returned from the hospital proved Nora is really the great actress of all time. Her simple answer "Patay na" showed her true character, a woman of strong will and spirit. It is just a short scene but it captured the full emotion of the story. That Elena, now that her husband is gone must face a battle that she must fight strongly and victoriously.. Sa Ngalan ng Ina  with its first showing is heading to a different  path and is setting a new trend in telenovela. It  will definitely stay away from those cliff hanger scenes " komiks style"  presentation.

 With  SA NGALAN NG  INA , Mis Aunor will soon be part again of the daily life of the Filipino masses and each night from Monday to Friday will not be complete without watching her as Elena,  the widow and  the unwillingly successor to her husband's political career.  It is another "Superstar Show" in the making.  which is undoubtedly  the longest- running musical show in Philippine television and  had become part of the Sunday nights of many Filipino families .

2.Iginuhit Ng Tadhna- although said to be a political ploy to capture the vote of the masses for then aspiring presidential candidate, Ferdinard marcos, the movie is with less hype and the composed acting of Gloria Romero playing Imedla Marcos gave its serene atmosphere just like the serenity of the 1960's era. Peace and quiet but inspiring is what the movie is at its best.

3.Manila Open City- it boosts of all star casts lead by Charito Solis and produced by Nepomuceno Films.
