‘First Man’ Shoots for Moon and Comes Out a Frontrunner at Awards Season (ClickTheCity)

Damien Chazelle reinvents the biopic and reimagines what flying to outer space is like in cinema in First Man and I think it's amazing. It's definitely an experience. It's such a quiet film until it's not and then it just explodes with tremendous sound design that really, really brings you into the moment of flying off…Read more ‘First Man’ Shoots for Moon and Comes Out a Frontrunner at Awards Season (ClickTheCity)

‘Liway’ and the Power of Restraint (ClickTheCity)

Chemistry as Cinematic Currency: a review of ‘Exes Baggage’ (ClickTheCity)

What a pair Angelica Panganiban and Carlo Aquino make! They are both really good actors and together, their chemistry is perfect. I am so embarrassed because I ended up gushing in my review of their latest film Exes Baggage. I kept praising Dan Villegas' direction and the sharp, clever script by Dwein Baltazar.
