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)

Chemistry as Cinematic Currency: a review of ‘Exes Baggage’ (ClickTheCity)

What a pair Angelica Panganiban and Carlo Aquino make! They are both really good actors and together, their chemistry is perfect. I am so embarrassed because I ended up gushing in my review of their latest film Exes Baggage. I kept praising Dan Villegas' direction and the sharp, clever script by Dwein Baltazar.

‘Nay’ plays out like two films, and it’s not a good thing (InterAksyon)

I really wanted to like Nay. I thought the story and the premise was fantastic. It's a story I would have wanted to have a shot at telling. It's a scary premise that is filled with drama and a complicated relationship dynamic. That sort of thing is something I really enjoy working on. I was rooting…Read more ‘Nay’ plays out like two films, and it’s not a good thing (InterAksyon)
