‘Kita Kita’ is an eye-opener for the romantic comedy genre (Interaksyon)

I'm so happy for Viva Films. They've been putting out some really good films lately and it's a great rebranding for the movie studio. I still can't get over how good Camp Sawi was and I heard that Bakit Lahat ng Gwapo May Boyfriend was also a surprisingly good film. I was going to watch Kita Kita anyway…Read more ‘Kita Kita’ is an eye-opener for the romantic comedy genre (Interaksyon)

Nyoy Volante does a drag legend justice in ‘Kinky Boots’ (Team mag)

I wrote a second article on Nyoy Volante's performance of Lola in Kinky Boots. I echoed a lot of the sentiments in my previous article but this time, I focused on the LGBTQ concepts and issues in this review. I felt that Interaksyon would talk more about the whole theatrical experience of the show. For the…Read more Nyoy Volante does a drag legend justice in ‘Kinky Boots’ (Team mag)

Nyoy Volante takes ‘Kinky Boots’ to new heights, heels and all (Interaksyon)

I got really lucky and was able to catch the Philippine staging of Kinky Boots. I wanted to see it only because I knew the songs were written by Cyndi Lauper. I knew nothing else of the musical except it won a lot of Tony awards. But that was it. And the show is so wonderful…Read more Nyoy Volante takes ‘Kinky Boots’ to new heights, heels and all (Interaksyon)

The true stars of ‘Dunkirk’ are Christopher Nolan and Hans Zimmer (Interaksyon)

If you are going to watch Dunkirk, let me tell you now: watch it in an IMAX theater. Seriously. Christopher Nolan put out all the stops and you have to see it in the biggest cinema screen you can with the best sound. Because Hans Zimmer's score is fabulous.

Too many characters, inconsistent tone wash out ‘Bloody Crayons’ (Interaksyon)

I've been busy. I was only able to really catch one film last week and then I got swamped with work. Well, I caught two, and made sure I got to see War for the Planet of the Apes but someone was already tasked to review it. So, instead, I reviewed Bloody Crayons. Here's my review: Too many…Read more Too many characters, inconsistent tone wash out ‘Bloody Crayons’ (Interaksyon)

Despite being set in 1899 New York, ‘Newsies’ strikes close to home (Interaksyon)

My work at Interaksyon has expanded now to include writing theater reviews. I prefer being able to release reviews on online sites than in Manila Bulletin because I can get my reviews out earlier. Speed is the key when it comes to reviews because, if the work is good, it's important to get people to…Read more Despite being set in 1899 New York, ‘Newsies’ strikes close to home (Interaksyon)

‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ puts the extra in the ordinary (Interaksyon)

I went to see the first screening of Spider-Man: Homecoming yesterday because it would be the best time to catch it (while people were still at work) and so I could send my review early. I was so happy I did. Read my review here: Spider-Man: Homecoming puts the extra in the ordinary (Interaksyon). Spoiler alert: I…Read more ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ puts the extra in the ordinary (Interaksyon)
