The 42nd MMFF (Metro Manila Film Festival) I think is one of the best MMFF we had since I don’t know.  Most of the movie are well done, well thought of and writen , plus you can see the effort when it comes to improving the Filipino industry. Last December 29, 2016, the awards night was held and the best of the 2016 MMFF was awarded, the event was co-presented by HOOQ. Jane Cruz-Walker, HOOQ Philippine Country Manager expressed enthusiasm over the partnership with MMFF and HOOQ  saying how proud she was to be a part of the festival “as it takes brave new stepsRead More →

Collateral Beauty

In everything there is a why,  then there are these three “obstructions” Love, Death and Time. “These three things connect every single human being on Earth.  We long for love.  We wish we had more time.  And we fear death.” Collateral Beauty for me is a great  2017 New Year movie to watch because it  makes you reevaluate your life.  Something we all do and need whenever a new year starts. Or well, that’s how I felt after watching it, or as I was watching it.   The script was well writen very profound , like I was reading the writings of Buddah. Haha! Will Smith wasRead More →

If you get stranded on a migrating spaceship, who would you want to be stranded with and why? I’m sure you have heard of this premise before remember the “island question”.  This was the kind situation the Passenger movie was about.  But just like any other getting stranded situation, there are challenges along the way and this was also tacked in the movie. While all cinemas in the country were showing Metro Manila Film Festival, I was one of the few people who got invited for the advanced special screening of Passenger held at screening room of Columbia Pictures in the Philippines. I must say I enjoyedRead More →

“I am one with the force,  the force is with me.” One of the lines in the movie that truly made a mark especially because it was repeatedly uttered by one of the most unforgettable characters in Rouge One : A Starwars Story movie.

I’m not a fan of straight up action movies. You know those pointless gun fight and violence that serves no purpose but stoopidity? When I went to see The Accountant Movie, I thought it is going to be one boring, predictable action film. I was wrong. Surprisingly the movie has an amazing twist that is very unpredictable. It was so engaging and interesting that will keep your eyes on the screen the whole time. While for some the movie started slow, I was hooked right away because the movie tackles an issue very close to my heart — autism , in its many shapes and form.Read More →
