‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’ Can Stand On Its Own (ClickTheCity)

Han Solo is not my favorite character in the whole Star Wars franchise. And I prefer moving forward rather than backwards. The idea of prequels have never been something I was comfortable with. I like progression. And because of this, I wasn't sure I was going to enjoy Solo: A Star Wars Story but I was…Read more ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’ Can Stand On Its Own (ClickTheCity)

Truth and Lies: a review of CineFilipino entry ‘Excuse Me Po’ (ClickTheCity)

The first film of the CineFilipino that I got to watch this year (and one of two, it was a bad year for my schedule with these entries) and, again, it's a great concept that wasn't executed properly. It was an amazing story but the script felt very unsure of itself, explaining everything, and a…Read more Truth and Lies: a review of CineFilipino entry ‘Excuse Me Po’ (ClickTheCity)

It was dazzling and I never forgot it. Now, the same team who brought us Young Adult have reunited to bring…Read more ‘Tully’ and the Dark Side of Motherhood (ClickTheCity)

Of Coldness and Stillness: A Review of CineFilipino Entry “The Eternity Between Seconds” (ClickTheCity)

The Eternity Between Seconds is one of the most well-received and highly praised films of the CineFilipino Film Festival that's concluding tomorrow. For some strange reason, I felt disengaged and could not connect to the film. I feel really weird about that. Everyone seemed to like it but I felt the film needed more warmth.…Read more Of Coldness and Stillness: A Review of CineFilipino Entry “The Eternity Between Seconds” (ClickTheCity)

Every Sunday, I make it a point to go to my brother's house and spend the whole day there. No work, nothing stressful. It's just me hanging out with my brother and my sister-in-law and their kids. It's been very helpful to my sanity to have that one day where I don't have to do…Read more video games
