“Pirates of the Caribbean 5” Review: Bloated but Fun

PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: SALAZAR’S REVENGE (2017) Review Directed by Joachim Ronning & Espen Sandberg For someone who did not like the first four Pirates of the Caribbean films, or at least found them forgettable, Salazar’s Revenge or Dead Men Tell No Tales gives us something different, something more fun and spectacular, and not only making you remember that Johnny Depp pirate character. Luckily, one doesn’t need to completely … Continue reading “Pirates of the Caribbean 5” Review: Bloated but Fun

“King Arthur: Legend of the Sword” Review: Edginess Over Story

KING ARTHUR: LEGEND OF THE SWORD (2017) Review Directed by Guy Ritchie After directing two Sherlock Holmes films with Robert Downey, Jr. which are entertaining and decently told, writer and director Guy Ritchie helms this edgy, or rather too edgy adaptation of the legend of King Arthur. If you’re familiar with Ritchie’s works, you’d see some of the same techniques he used with Sherlock Holmes here in King Arthur: Legend … Continue reading “King Arthur: Legend of the Sword” Review: Edginess Over Story

“Dear Other Self” Review: Too Dull to Make An Impact

DEAR OTHER SELF (2017) Review Directed by Veronica Velasco In the hope of watching a good film, you enter the cinema with no expectations. But even with low expectations, some movies can’t seem to make a mark or rather an impact even with good actors at hand. Dear Other Self is the perfect example. The film is not bad but you hardly can enjoy the film because … Continue reading “Dear Other Self” Review: Too Dull to Make An Impact

“Alien: Covenant” Review: A Proper Pay Off to ‘Prometheus’

ALIEN: COVENANT (2017) Review Directed by Ridley Scott It’s been five years since the supposed to be Alien prequel Prometheus debuted in cinemas. It had received mix reviews but there’s no denying that Prometheus was one hell of a ride. Ridley Scott returns to the horror sci-fi adventure in Alien: Covenant, the much awaited real Alien prequel, as advertised. But honestly, I liked Prometheus more. The film is a proper pay off to its … Continue reading “Alien: Covenant” Review: A Proper Pay Off to ‘Prometheus’

“Our Mighty Yaya” Review: Loud but with a Heart

OUR MIGHTY YAYA (2017) Review Directed by Jose Javier Reyes After Dilim (2014), No Boyfriend Since Birth (2015) and My Bebe Love #KiligPaMore (2015), it is hard to expect anything good from Jose Javier Reyes, but we can’t also disregard Kasal, Kasali, Kasalo (2006) and Ano Ang Kulay ng mga Nakalimutang Pangarap? (2013) which are great, the first was fun and the latter was heartbreaking. Reyes returns with Regal Entertainment, Inc.’s Mother’s … Continue reading “Our Mighty Yaya” Review: Loud but with a Heart

CAN’T HELP FALLING IN LOVE (2017) Review Directed by Mae Cruz – Alviar Back on the big screen, Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla keeps on improving as an artist both individually and as a couple. Can’t Help Falling in Love won’t be offering anything new when it comes to the story but the magic of the film relies on the chemistry of its leads and how the … Continue reading “Can’t Help Falling in Love” Review: Predictable & Formulaic but Lovely

“The Baby Boss” Review: Forget About Logic, Just Laugh!

THE BOSS BABY (2017) Review Directed by Tom McGrath Okay, the title of this movie review might make you think that I’m shallow. Maybe, but for the right reasons. The Boss Baby is more fictional or farther than reality than just a talking baby living with a family. And no, everything wasn’t all imagination. The moment you knew or realize that, you already have yourself challenged … Continue reading “The Baby Boss” Review: Forget About Logic, Just Laugh!

“Ghost in the Shell” Review: Decent Story, Stunning Visuals

GHOST IN THE SHELL (2017) Review Directed by Rupert Sanders From Snow White and The Huntsman to Ghost in the Shell, Rupert Sanders continues to prove he has the eyes to direct films that presents stunning visuals, but are those enough to keep you seated comfortably all throughout the movie? The story is quite decent, it is your typical science fiction action movie, but the film has … Continue reading “Ghost in the Shell” Review: Decent Story, Stunning Visuals
