GREATEST – Nezt time, Highspeed will pursue Mario A. Hernando to name for Highspeed his 50 or even 100 best films of all time. Just as another Mario, Mario Bautista, did for this column years back.
Yes may hopes to come up with 100 greatest films one of these days, which Highspeed encourage ditor-in-chief Jo-Ann Maglipon to do so. She explains such a monumental task needs time lots of research and evaluation.
