    KITA KITA (2017) Review Directed by Sigrid Andrea Bernardo “Two less lonely people in the world and it’s gonna be fine” It goes with Jerrold Tarog’s Sana Dati (2013), or Marie Jamora’s Ang Nawawala (2012), you could also include Olivia Lamasan’s Sana Maulit Muli (1995), there’s something distinct about these films storytelling, the atmosphere.

“Spider-Man: Homecoming” Review: Fun, Gets the Pressures of a Teenage (Superhero)

SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING (2017) Review Directed by Jon Watts Firstly, I’m not one with those who didn’t enjoy Andrew Garfield’s The Amazing Spider-Man series, but the first Spider-Man trilogy starring Tobey Maguire. But then this enthusiastically nerd and kid-looking arrive, swinging to the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Captain America: Civil War. Who would knew we all wanted the 21 year old English actor named Tom Holland as our newest … Continue reading “Spider-Man: Homecoming” Review: Fun, Gets the Pressures of a Teenage (Superhero)

“Ang Pagsanib kay Leah dela Cruz” Review: Eerie Atmosphere & Effective Scares

“Transformers: The Last Knight” Review: Stunning Visuals Can’t Save Its Dull Story

TRANSFORMERS: THE LAST KNIGHT (2017) Review Directed by Michael Bay Let’s be honest, the moment the Transformers franchise left the Sam Witwicky )Shia LaBeouf) story line and had gone to the ridiculously named Cade Yeager (Mark Wahlberg), the stories seems to be too thin, you hardly notice that there is one. They’re just all visual spectacle without a substance. Like Transformers: Age of Extinction, Transformers: The Last Knight feels like … Continue reading “Transformers: The Last Knight” Review: Stunning Visuals Can’t Save Its Dull Story

“Despicable Me 3” Review: The Better Sequel

DESPICABLE ME 3 (2017) Review Directed by Kyle Balda, Pierre Coffin After Despicable Me 2 and Minions, I had low hopes for the franchise because it feels like it just wants to make money out of its characters especially the adorable breakthroughs, the minions. But 2 years after Minions, here we are, still adoring over the cuteness of the yellow creatures that we have no idea what they are … Continue reading “Despicable Me 3” Review: The Better Sequel
