reviews for La Cage Aux Folles, Chappie, and 4,000 Miles

The weekend was filled to the brim and I was able to get my writing out and got a few reviews out.

I saw La Cage Aux Folles by 9 Works Theatrical last Sunday with my Mom and I enjoyed myself completely. I wasn’t expecting to, but I heard so many good things about it and even my Dad loved it, so I was hoping for the best.

I was wrong to have even been worried. My review can be read here: Standing Ovation Necessary: a review of La Cage Aux Folles.

I also got to see 4,000 Miles by Repertory Philippines last Friday and while I love the script, the play fell flat for me. I thought Cara Barredo and Caisa Borromeo were absolutely fabulous in it but they weren’t on stage for very long and couldn’t save the show. But apparently, I was told it got better after opening night when I watched.

And since I didn’t make it to my play last Saturday (it was in Marikina and I got lost trying to find it), I rushed to catch the last showing of Chappie and saw that. Was quite disappointed. Neill Blomkamp really impressed me with District 9 but he hasn’t done anything to match that level of brilliance since. And he is going to handle the sequel of Alien? I’m scared.

The weekend was filled with catching shows and watching movies and my weekdays are filled with corporate-type work and planning for an upcoming project. I’ve been a busy boy but I’m glad to still be able to balance out my life a bit. I’m getting better at it.
