This Time: Can love survive time and distance?

Movies / Philippine Television / Uncategorized

I have been a JADINE fan since On the Wings of Love. It is the only Filipino television series I’ve been emotionally invested in. I have been wishing for this love team (real life couple also! ) to be given a semi-mature movie as well so when I found out about This Time, my heart did a somersault. Could this be the movie us JADINE fans  were waiting for? Watch the trailer below to find out the premise of […]

*CONTAINS SPOILERS* There has been a lot of hype for Captain America: Civil War. The trailer was very engaging, captivating people left and right, but what about the movie itself? IN MY OPINION… If you’re a fan of crossovers or semi-melodramatic superhero films then this film will most likely appeal to you. Marvel is one of the franchises that can make me watch action movies, and while I wasn’t on my toes the entire screening […]

High Strung: A dance movie that “kind of” works

Admittedly, I have a soft spot for dance movies. If you’ve read my article on Lisa Macuja, you’d know that dance was an integral part of my growing up years. Every time there’s a new dance movie in cinemas I ALMOST always watch it. Some pictures of Ballet and I. It’s awesome to rekindle the energy and optimism that dance gives even if it’s just vicariously now. I love remembering! Some thoughts on the movie: *CONTAINS […]

  Mirror, mirror on the wall, who’s the fairest of them all?  Chris Hemsworth, Jessica Chastain, Charlize Theron, and Emily Blunt come together to bring this dark fantasy  to the big screen. I was quite excited to watch this one, primarily because of the all-star cast and the stunningly crafted trailer. Some notes on the movie: *CONTAINS SPOILERS* Emily Blunt was amazing! I though her acting was one of the highlights of the film. She […]

Let’s talk about Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice * Contains Spoilers

  Personally, when  I first heard about the concept of Batman and Superman fighting each other, I found it strange. Still, who was I to judge? I wasn’t comic book savvy. Maybe the producers had something spectacular up their sleeves. People, on the other hand, have beeen giving Ben Affleck a hard time since it was announced that he was going to be playing Batman. Again, I was surprised by this decision. Could he really […]

  There isn’t much for me to say, so I won’t force it. I decided to watch Allegiant: Part 1 [starring Shailene Woodley (Tris) and Theo James(Four)] since I had already watched the first two (Divergent and Insurgent). My personal opinion: the movie did not blow my mind like Divergent did. There was no “whoa” factor. Having said that, it wasn’t by any means a bad movie for me. The storyline was intriguing enough to […]

  “I’m not trying to turn you into me; I’m trying to turn you into you,” Shifu, Kung Fu Panda 3 I never really outgrew watching cartoons. I mean, I don’t watch them on a day to day basis, but every once in a while something gets my attention. While Kung Fu Panda franchise already had a reputation for producing fantastic movies, I really didn’t know what to expect (installments are either super good or meh) so […]

Some thoughts on, “The Book Thief” (contains spoilers)

  I can hardly sit through movies which are anti-climatic. Melowdramas and documentaries always leave me sleeping or doing something else besides watching. I watched The Book Thief because it was the only movie in the theatre besides LEGO MOVIE that had an an above average rating in imdb, and also because the book was a New York Times Bestseller . I was utterly surprised to find myself hanging on to every scene- even crying in one of them. The […]

  Starring: Gerald Anderson and Arci Muñoz. Supporting: Cacai Bautista and Ricci Chan Have you ever fallen for someone you didn’t expect to? As I mentioned in my previous post, I love Filipino romantic comedies. I may have been late in watching this one (it’s already in its 2nd blockbuster week), but I wasn’t going to miss it. I watched it with no expectations — or tried to have none. Let’s be honest, if it’s a […]

Cinderella Reinvented: The magic of a makeover never ends

Makeover moments never get stale. As a little girl, I felt the magic when Cinderella transformed into a princess and astonished all the people at the ball as she makes a grand entrance. Fast forward to the 20th – 21st century and you have a long string of makeover movies. The fairy godmother may no longer be there to wave her wand, but the magic of a makeover is still present. Deeper than the makeover […]
