‘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)

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)

‘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)

‘Everything, Everything’ is a charming romantic fable with a dark edge (Interaksyon)

So I saw Everything, Everything the other day and I am such a sucker for romantic films with characters suffering from an illness. It's a weakness of mine. I'm a hopeless romantic with HIV. Go figure! (laugh here) So here's my review: Everything, Everything is a charming romantic fable with a dark edge (Interaksyon). As romantic movies…Read more ‘Everything, Everything’ is a charming romantic fable with a dark edge (Interaksyon)

In Transformers: The Last Knight, all that noise is just noise (Interaksyon)

So I had to watch Transformers: The Last Knight so I could write a review of it. What's your excuse? If it wasn't my job I wouldn't have caught it but I'm just glad that I get reimbursed so I don't feel completely cheated by the whole experience. Read my review here: In Transformers: The Last…Read more In Transformers: The Last Knight, all that noise is just noise (Interaksyon)

Can We Still Be Friends? strikes the right balance between formula and realness (Interaksyon)

Caught a lovely movie yesterday. Can We Still Be Friends? was a rather surprising release from Star Cinema. I am not a big fan of the studios' penchant for formula. I find it to be the reason why Filipino film-goers aren't that adventurous when it comes to new forms of storytelling. For many years now, Star Cinema…Read more Can We Still Be Friends? strikes the right balance between formula and realness (Interaksyon)
