Again, here are a couple of articles I had written in Juice about films. Juice has been keeping me busy, as of late, and I love it. They’ve been making sure that I get to see at least one or two new films a week and/or articles about film like the ones I am posting here.
The first one I wrote is Welcome to the Post-Apocalypse, which is a list article about high profile films set in the world of the post-apocalypse. I like the post-apolcalypse, to be honest. I think it makes a great setting for very human stories. The most interesting of stories are always the ones about extraordinary people undergoing ordinary things, or the opposite, which is ordinary people going through extraordinary things. It is in that tension that we glean important insights about our humanity. That’s why I love it so much.
The other was another list article I wrote for them called It’s All About Time, which pretty much lists ten films that distorts time in some way. It’s not a study on time, like, say Run, Lola, Run or Time Code. That would be a different article all together, I think, and I’d be hard-pressed to find enough to make a list of over six. This, of course, was inspired by the film, Looper, which I enjoyed.
Lately, they have been asking me to contribute to other sections of Juice, such as Buhay Pilipino and Kultura, including some articles involving love, sex, and relationships. How does a guy who has been single for most of his life get to right articles about love, sex, and relationship? I have no idea, but I’m excited to see what they assign me and what I come up with.
Again, a huge thanks to the editors at Juice for constantly keeping me on my toes, for giving me a platform with which to share my love for movies, and for sending my work back to me when there’s something missing and they want me to tighten it up. Always. Thank you.
