Four funny, ferocious, fine ladies are our new Ghostbusters!

All the skeptics and naysayers can calm the f*ck down now. Ghostbusters was pretty damn good. The 2016 Ghostbusters movie is a reboot of the 1984 supernatural comedy classic. Since it started marketing a year ago, (and especially after it was announced that it was going to feature an all-female team) the worst corners of the internet has absolutely ripped…Read More »

The film “The Achy Breaky Hearts” gives a good glimpse of the pains and pressures of singlehood for a woman. Despite the advancement in science and technology and developments in various fields, there are just some things that remain backward. People may embrace modern ideologies but there are old notions that live on like stubborn stains that refuse to go…Read More »

If there’s anything that last week’s Independence Day celebrations have taught us, it’s that the Filipino people are strong, resilient, and made for success. It’s only a matter of confidence, and there is certainly no lack of it in Mike Grogan’s book, The Rise of the Pinoy. Just what is it about our proud race that makes us so incredibly…Read More »

Let the magic entertain.

    I am speechless. I am literally going to have a hard time writing this. Because right now, having just come out of the movie, all I can think of is…THAT. WAS. AMAAAAAAZIIIIIIIIIING!!!!!!!

What happens when you take an immensely kilig love story and set it on the stunning shores of Boracay? That’s exactly what Cover Story Girl is all about, and I absolutely loved it. How can anyone not? With the breathtaking scenery and the love that will shake the whole island (plus a delightful marriage of both local and Korean cultures),…Read More »

(Movie review) ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ is persistently mediocre

I still have hope for the future.

And just like that, the three most anticipated movies of 2016 are over. Sure there’s still Suicide Squad and Doctor Strange but those didn’t get half as much anticipation or scale as BvS, Civil War and X-Men: Apocalypse had. These were the big three, and how did Apocalypse stack up to the other two? While BvS received extreme contempt and…Read More »

New power couple? Probably not.

(Movie review) ‘Just The 3 Of Us’ falls victim to genre cliches

New power couple? Probably not.

I watched this movie with a couple of my friends; yeah, just the 3 of us. Budu-bum-tssss. (I’m sorry. I’m so, so sorry. I couldn’t help it.) Moving on… John Lloyd and Jennylyn Mercado’s new film was, as a whole, okay. It delivered a few laughs, a couple of tear-jerking moments, and the usual feel good ending. But, like a…Read More »
