Pros and Cons: A Review of ‘Ocean’s 8’ (ClickTheCity)

I liked the movie, surprisingly, and I enjoyed myself while watching it. But it wasn't after I talked to my friend Paolo about why he didn't like it as much as I did that I started to see the flaws. Don't get me wrong, I'm happy that Ocean's 8 got made and I would watch it again,…Read more Pros and Cons: A Review of ‘Ocean’s 8’ (ClickTheCity)

The Martian: Making Science Super Cool (review/Juice.ph)

So, I found myself with some time on my hands and I was able to get to the cinema to watch a movie and I caught Ridley Scott's The Martian.

When taking into account the previous two installments, the finale, I feel, should somehow match the first two. It's a trilogy. If they were triplets, two brothers look alike and the other is a girl,…Read more The Dark Knight (almost) Rises
