Movie Review: Beauty and the Beast (2017) *Spoilers Alert!*

Forgive me, my dear Emma, for being several months late on this. I could joke about how your beauty (pun intended) was so stunning that I couldn’t write anything until now but that would be lying and I don’t lie anymore. You’re absolutely lovely, don’t get me wrong. I watched it again, in video this…

Movie Review: Kingsman: The Golden Circle *Spoilers Alert!*

Director Matthew Vaughn returns for the next installment to the Kingsman franchise. This is the first time that Vaughn does a sequel and this film has all the elements of the first movie except the surprise factor. While I didn’t hate it, there was not much new stuff to like. Julianne Moore is a great…

Movie Review: Baby Driver *Spoilers Alert!*

I have raved to my movie-loving friends about this film for several days after watching it. As I write this review, the emotions I felt while I was seeing it in the theater all came back – the anticipation while waiting for it to come on screen, the adrenaline rush during the opening car chase,…

TV Series Review: Marvel’s The Defenders *Spoilers Alert!*

A couple of years back, I heard of this deal between Marvel and Netflix that will bring us fan favorites Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist to the small screen in their own TV series culminating in a team-up of sorts as the Defenders. Last week, eight episodes of Marvel’s The Defenders were…

Movie Review: 100 Tula Para Kay Stella *Spoilers Alert*

Don’t be fooled. The story’s simple premise hides many layers beneath it. While I’ve loved Bela Padilla since I saw her in 10,000 Hours, JC Santos’ performance as stuttering Fidel is stronger than hers as rebel girl Stella. I’ll be venturing into spoiler territory now so if you haven’t seen the movie and don’t want…

Movie Review: Spider-Man Homecoming *Spoilers Alert!*

It seems fitting to make my comeback to the blogosphere with a review for the new reboot to our favorite wall-crawler, Spider-Man. Spider-Man: Homecoming finally gives us the perfect combination of Peter Parker and his alter ego. I have to give mad props to Tom Holland for just the right balance between high school nerd…

Thank You, Lord

2017 NBA Playoffs Picks and Predictions

I know that the 2017 NBA Playoffs are already underway. It was a rookie mistake. With everything that went on at church yesterday, I thought the first few games would start tomorrow. Don’t worry. I’m sticking to my picks and predictions even with the results of today’s games. Let’s open things up with the Western Conference…

Movie Review: Power Rangers *Spoilers Alert!*

Fellow Disney fans, I must apologize because I am overstepping my Beauty and the Beast review with this. It’s just that I was pleasantly surprised by this incarnation of the characters based on Toei’s Kyoryu Sentai Zyuranger. Initially, I was really worried of what the finished product is going to be like. However, after seeing…

Movie Review: Whiplash *Spoilers Alert!*

Prior to seeing Whiplash, the only other movie about drumming I was able to watch was Drumline. While I liked that film, I absolutely love this one. Thank God for Sundance! Without them, Damien Chazelle’s project would have lacked funding. What happened was the director of La La Land had no money to make it so…

Movie Review: Logan *Spoilers Alert!*

The year is 2029 and most of the X-Men are dead. On the radio, the host asks, ‘Why are we still talking about mutants?’ The driver of the limousine couldn’t care less as well. He’s old, battered, and bruised which is a far cry from the time when he was younger – the time when his…

Movie Review: Sakaling Hindi Makarating *Spoilers Alert!*

Would you believe me if I said that it has been three weeks since I watched this movie? I have to apologize to Alessandra De Rossi, Ice Idanan, and the rest of the crew for missing out on promoting the film. Only a handful of malls gambled on showing it in their cinemas. On its first week,…
