Unbelievably thrilling, ‘Mission: Impossible — Fallout’ raises the bar for the genre (ClickTheCity)

There's no question that I loved Mission: Impossible -- Fallout. The action sequences are incredible, I love the characters, the tension is high, and the stakes are big. It's a perfect action-spy-thriller and it breaks boundaries on stunts and physical effects. I love it. It's great. But I'll be honest. I say that Mission: Impossible -- Fallout is…Read more Unbelievably thrilling, ‘Mission: Impossible — Fallout’ raises the bar for the genre (ClickTheCity)

‘American Made’ is hilariously subversive (InterAksyon)

I've become a Tom Cruise fan after Collateral. I saw a different Tom Cruise in that film, a man who began to embrace his celebrity status and started to act through it, rather than with it. His films that followed showed so much depth and maturity in his performances and the choices he makes, alongside with…Read more ‘American Made’ is hilariously subversive (InterAksyon)

The Mummy: the true curse is that the film is rather disappointing

My second review that I did for Interaksyon is out and this time I give my two cents on Tom Cruise's The Mummy. I was so looking forward to this movie and I feel so bad because it did not feel like the usual Tom Cruise film. It didn't have that magic. It didn't have…Read more The Mummy: the true curse is that the film is rather disappointing

Edge of Tomorrow: Fun and Funny Again and Again

So I saw Edge of Tomorrow and I loved it. It's like Groundhog Day meets any alien invasion movie from Independence Day to War of the Worlds. And while the film doesn't have Bill Murray (Groundhog Day reference), it has Tom Cruise doing what he does best: being Tom Cruise. And it has Emily Blunt.…Read more Edge of Tomorrow: Fun and Funny Again and Again

My review of Oblivion and what I think of the Carrie remake

I got to watch Tom Cruise's Oblivion the other day. I was quite disappointed. Don't get me wrong, I thought it was very good science fiction. The story and its many twists and turns were quite enjoyable; unfortunately, in my opinion, the story-telling was clunky and the pacing was disjointed. It could have been so…Read more My review of Oblivion and what I think of the Carrie remake

Pour Some Sugar on Me: a review of Rock of Ages

I came into this film prepared to hate it beyond end. I went to watch it because I think Catherine Zeta-Jones playing a conservative zealot and singing and dancing like she did in Chicago. At the same time, I grew up listening to musicals written by Kander and Ebb, Maury Yeston, Oscar and Hammerstein, Stephen…Read more Pour Some Sugar on Me: a review of Rock of Ages
