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

Monday, 23 May 2016 | Written by
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.

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 »
