Coco: Movie Review

All in all, I was well and truly impressed by how Coco managed to celebrate Mexican culture and tradition with the wonderful details of the animation. The film really came to life in a unique and different way. The OST was also one of the best that Disney Pixel had to offer and really stepped up the emotional level of the movie. In my opinion, the purity of the voice acting also played a major factor in the film’s success.The film also had a very moving message — that while families won’t always understand one another,  love will overcome every obstacle. Congratulations to director John Lasseter for pulling another memorable film. … Read More Coco: Movie Review

I am not a Robot: Korean Drama Review

All in all, I am not a Robot’s main strength was the strong casting. Despite the overly lengthy dialogues, despite the poor character development and scenes that made no sense, I liked that the cast managed to gel together and pull out performances that made the audience care about what happens to them. It was a good rom com. It delivered on the happy feels and the romance but I wouldn’t go so far as to rank it among my favorites. Not yet at “Yeppo” (Pretty) level for me but it was a solid series. No doubt. … Read More I am not a Robot: Korean Drama Review

Logan Lucky: Movie Review

All in all, I liked the Hillbilly touch to the movie and how strong the characterization was for the main cast. Their plot seemed simple and complicated at the same time and makes one root for the success blue collar little guys who manage to pull off a scheme of this magnitude. It was’t as intense as other heist movies but it held its own in the genre. There was no need for villains or other family issues, just good, just a good old fashioned heist brilliantly executed, filled with tons of good humor.  Plus, Sadie’s surprise for her daddy at the pageant really got me to tear up. Awww!… Read More Logan Lucky: Movie Review

The Open House: Movie Review

All in all, The Open House was a passable horror. Not particularly good or bad. Just passable. The problem was that it focused too much on the buildup but the reveal of the culprit did not really pay off. The script also turned the rest of the cast into cardboard characters that viewers have seen countless times before. Of its 1 hour and 34 minute run, only 20 minutes really held my interest and I’m not sure if that’s enough to set this film apart from the rest in its genre. … Read More The Open House: Movie Review

Devilman Crybaby: Series Review

All in all, Devilman was filled with terror, violence nudity and everything that kids should not watch in an anime. It was extremely graphic but it was also very poignant in its message. It explores the extent of human cruelty and intolerance. There may be times that humanity forgets how to be human but at the end of the day, they will come to terms with the goodness in their hearts.… Read More Devilman Crybaby: Series Review

Go Back Couple: Kdrama Review

All in all, I loved that Go Back couple’s fantasy premise provided an excellent background to tell a very realistic story based on equally realistic issues being experienced by husbands and wives. It carries very important lessons and a lot of hope for even the most complicated relatrionship. At the heart of every relationship,  be romantic, family, or friendship, at its core is always love, understanding and forgiveness.… Read More Go Back Couple: Kdrama Review

Ang Panday (2017): Movie Review

All in all, Ang Panday wasn’t horrible but gahd, the endless parade of unnecessary scenes to accommodate the number of actors in this movie was ridiculous. By its end, I was confused as to what its real purpose was — to entertain moviegoers or to annoy the hell out of non-die hard fans of Ang Probinsyano like myself. Its definitely leaps and bounds better than the Bong Revilla version though. … Read More Ang Panday (2017): Movie Review
