Netflix Recommendations, Vol. 1: Tagalog Movies

I'm not the biggest fan of Filipino movies. The recipe for most local films has been the same for what feels like centuries. The genre changes, of course, but for every genre, the shit's basically what it was two or three or even five decades ago, save for a few indie films. We have marital … Continue reading Netflix Recommendations, Vol. 1: Tagalog Movies

A Quiet Place — My Very Unpopular Opinion

WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD. A few days ago, my friends and I watched this super hyped-up suspense/thriller movie – A Quiet Place. If we're friends on Facebook or if you have read this post, then you already know what I feel about this film. Needless to say, I did not like it at all. I mean, … Continue reading A Quiet Place — My Very Unpopular Opinion

Jumping on the Netflix Bandwagon

I finally caved and subscribed to Netflix. Okay, granted that I'm still currently under the free month trial, but still, it feels like a commitment already. Actually, I was already subscribed to Netflix back in 2015 but cancelled the damn thing since there wasn't really much to choose from at the time. What I can … Continue reading Jumping on the Netflix Bandwagon

Netflix's Veronica – Scariest Movie of All Time?

Here we go again with these scariest movie of all time claims. Of course, being the huge horror movie fan that I am, I can't help but feel intrigued and curious.

Everything Sucks! Doesn’t Actually Suck

The trailer that I saw on Facebook seemed interesting enough that it caught my attention. Just my luck since I was looking for a new series to watch anyway. I've been watching the same TV shows for a couple of years and I wanted something new. And in this day and age, Netflix is usually … Continue reading Everything Sucks! Doesn’t Actually Suck

‘Seven Sundays’ Hits the Right Spots

I was never a big fan of Filipino films. They all seem so repetitive and just going off of the same recipe that’s seriously dated. I couldn’t bear one more of it so I just steer clear. But recently, more and more local releases are becoming better and armed with a different story line than … Continue reading ‘Seven Sundays’ Hits the Right Spots

Wonder is A Must-See & Must-Read for All Ages

Now this is what a book-to-movie adaptation should be like. Wonder is a novel (it's not quite Young Adult and it's not really Elementary level; just somewhere in between but definitely one that reaches to kids, tweens, teens, and adults alike) written by R.J. Palacio back in 2012 and one that I read back in … Continue reading Wonder is A Must-See & Must-Read for All Ages

Everything Everything — The Movie Adaptation

For years, I thought that the worst Young Adult book-to-movie adaptation was Twilight; followed closely by The Perks of Being A Wallflower and Paper Towns. These movies didn't do the books justice, and on some parts, butchered such a good plot, it almost hurts. (Yes, even the Twilight saga because I actually do like the … Continue reading Everything Everything — The Movie Adaptation
