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,…

Of Critics And Being Critical

I am not a movie critic and I will never aspire to be one. Here’s why: critic – a person who expresses an unfavorable opinion of something. It’s almost as if the definition of a critic is someone who always has something negative to say about anything. I refuse to be that kind of person. Who…

Movie Review: La La Land *Spoilers Alert!*

Now that I’ve had time to think about it, I realized that Sebastian (Ryan Gosling) subtly foreshadowed what was going to happen to him and Mia (Emma Stone). But before I get into that, let us do away with the usual stuff first. La La Land is a masterpiece of a musical from the director…

Movie Review: Vince & Kath & James *Spoilers Alert!*

Star Cinema’s entry to the Metro Manila Film Festival is the runaway winner in the box office. It’s not surprising as the studio is already adept at producing quality films that appeal to a wide audience. Even though they follow a strict formula, it seems that they have done it well. Vince (Joshua Garcia) has…

Movie Review: Saving Sally *Spoilers Alert!*

Like what the poster says, it is a very typical love story. A regular guy, Marty (Enzo Marcos), is in love with an extraordinary girl, Sally (Rhian Ramos). Sally needs to be rescued and Marty wants to be her knight in shining armor. Unfortunately, he shies away from admitting his feelings for her. Moreover, she…

Movie Review: Seklusyon *Spoiler-Free!*

First of all, to those who claim that this is not a horror movie, it is. It is not your usual slasher or creature thriller, though. To be honest, this kind of movie is scarier than the usual frightful flicks because it draws inspiration from real life events. The film tackles issues about religion and…
