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

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. What is with Netflix's Veronica (a 2017 Spanish horror film) that made it such a hit? Is it really that good? Is it really … Continue reading Netflix's Veronica – Scariest Movie of All Time?

‘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

Is IT Really the Best Horror Film of 2017?

I’m a sucker for some good scare. I like horror films because of that certain thrill that it gives — despite the fact that I still close my eyes whenever I feel like something’s about to happen. 2017 wasn’t exactly the year for horror movies as many of the more popular releases were superhero related. … Continue reading Is IT Really the Best Horror Film of 2017?

Filipino Indie: Baka Bukas (Maybe Tomorrow)

Multiple friends have tagged me on viral Baka Bukas posts on Facebook on more than one occasion. I didn’t pay much attention to it at first until I found out that it’s actually a film about the life of this feminine lesbian and it’s directed by Samantha Lee herself! Sam’s not really super well-known in … Continue reading Filipino Indie: Baka Bukas (Maybe Tomorrow)
