The Magic of the Human Touch: a review of ‘Bumblebee’ (ClickTheCity)

They say that Bumblebee is the best Transformers movie ever and while it is true, let's also shift our perspective to accept the fact that when we are talking about Transformers, we are talking about a whole range of films that aren't very deep and a whole lot of them aren't really very good. Let's…Read more The Magic of the Human Touch: a review of ‘Bumblebee’ (ClickTheCity)

‘Mary Poppins Returns,’ like its main character, has returned when we needed her the most (ClickTheCity)

I loved it. I loved Mary Poppins Returns. I was expecting to hate it because I really don't like Rob Marshall because of what he did to Memoirs of a Geisha, Nine, and Into the Woods. But everything is forgiven because Mary Poppins Returns was so wonderful and enjoyable and I laughed out loud and…Read more ‘Mary Poppins Returns,’ like its main character, has returned when we needed her the most (ClickTheCity)

Netflix film ‘Bird Box’ is filled with enough thrills and drama to stand on its own from its comparisons to ‘A Quiet Place’ (ClickTheCity)

I really had no idea how to write this article. How do you say a movie is just okay? Like, I didn't know how to write a movie that just did what it was supposed to do for the moment and then that was it. People hated it and I don't know why. I liked…Read more Netflix film ‘Bird Box’ is filled with enough thrills and drama to stand on its own from its comparisons to ‘A Quiet Place’ (ClickTheCity)

Despite its excellent first half, ‘Aurora’ stumbles in its final act and sinks (ClickTheCity)

Aurora was the only film in the Metro Manila Film Festival that I wanted to see and it's the only one I've seen so far. I tried to go and watch two more, at least, but I really didn't have the gumption to do it. Let's face it. The MMFF is not the festival that…Read more Despite its excellent first half, ‘Aurora’ stumbles in its final act and sinks (ClickTheCity)

A Tidal Wave of Fun: a review of ‘Aquaman’ (ClickTheCity)

Definitely, Aquaman benefits greatly from straying from Zack Snyder's original mood and tone of the DC Extended Universe. The door was kicked wide open by Patty Jenkin's Wonder Woman and James Wan decided to fly (or swim) straight through it at full speed. What we get is a comic book movie that is fun and enjoyable but it sort…Read more A Tidal Wave of Fun: a review of ‘Aquaman’ (ClickTheCity)

‘Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse’ is a Marvel of Storytelling and the Best Animation of 2018 (ClickTheCity)

I don't remember having ever been so moved and overwhelmed and awe-inspired by an animated feature like I was with Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. What a movie! I'm a huge fan of Disney and Pixar films and I cried in almost all the Pixar films that I've seen but Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse made me feel things…Read more ‘Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse’ is a Marvel of Storytelling and the Best Animation of 2018 (ClickTheCity)

Big is Not Always Better: a review of ‘Mortal Engines’ (ClickTheCity)

Hera Hilmar's relatively unknown status doesn't help her in Mortal Engines no matter how good she was; the story was so dense and not handled properly for her to be able to pop out Everything in the trailer made me believe that Mortal Engines was directed by Peter Jackson. Of course, now I realize that they never said so.…Read more Big is Not Always Better: a review of ‘Mortal Engines’ (ClickTheCity)
