Atlantis Theatrical Production’s Staging of ‘Waitress’ Will Leave You Full and Wanting More (ClickTheCity)

I love everything about Waitress. I love Sara Bareilles. I love the movie it was based on. I love the themes of women empowerment and navigating the tricky realm of infidelity, abuse, disillusionment, and all the other gray areas in the messy moments of life in a small town. And the Philippine production with Joanna Ampil.…Read more Atlantis Theatrical Production’s Staging of ‘Waitress’ Will Leave You Full and Wanting More (ClickTheCity)

Despite it’s gorgeous moments, ‘Kung Paano Siya Nawala’ can leave you cold with its tempered restraint (ClickTheCity)

Kung Paano Siya Nawala is a film with a gorgeous concept but because of its execution, it leaves me very cold. It has an amazing hook, a love story about a man suffering from face blindness, who falls in love with a free-spirited girl, whose life has been so touch-and-go that she has a difficult…Read more Despite it’s gorgeous moments, ‘Kung Paano Siya Nawala’ can leave you cold with its tempered restraint (ClickTheCity)

Mayhem, Truth, and Redemption at the Center of ‘Bad Times at the El Royale’ (ClickTheCity)

I came in to this film relatively blind. I saw the trailer but read nothing on Bad Times at the El Royale and I'm glad I didn't learn anything more about it because it held so many surprises that I enjoyed it more because of it. It's the kind of movie where the surprises make…Read more Mayhem, Truth, and Redemption at the Center of ‘Bad Times at the El Royale’ (ClickTheCity)

‘Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald’ and the Curse of the Bridging Film in a Series (ClickTheCity)

To reiterate my opening line in my review, "Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald gave me a headache." Like I felt I had to tweet right after watching the film: "Death by over-plotting." Read my full review here: 'Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald' and the Curse of the Bridging Film in a Series (ClickTheCity).…Read more ‘Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald’ and the Curse of the Bridging Film in a Series (ClickTheCity)

The Progressive Reimagining of ‘The Nutcracker and the Four Realms’ is a Strange Children’s Film (ClickTheCity)

What a strange film; a Christmas movie released during Halloween with a deliciously twisted sugary performance from Keira Knightley, an underutilized Helen Mirren, and the titular character is not even second lead. This was a very, very strange film that was quite difficult to enjoy.

Relish in the Old School Simplicity of ‘Overlord’ (ClickTheCity)

I liked Overlord. I came in completely blind to this movie; not having seen the trailer or read any review or article about it. I was surprised to see the JJ Abrams stamp on it at the beginning and I thoroughly enjoyed myself while watching it. It felt refreshing and different from many of the films…Read more Relish in the Old School Simplicity of ‘Overlord’ (ClickTheCity)

Zanjoe Marudo and Maja Salvador Shine in the Wonderfully Surprising ‘To Love Some Buddy’ (ClickTheCity)

Of all of Jason Paul Laxamana's films, To Love Some Buddy might be my favorite yet. I have been very lukewarm with all his other films until this one. I think this is the one that I enjoyed the most and it's really the wonderful beats in his story and how good Zanjoe Marudo and Maja…Read more Zanjoe Marudo and Maja Salvador Shine in the Wonderfully Surprising ‘To Love Some Buddy’ (ClickTheCity)
