Nightflyers: Series Review

All in all,  I think Nightflyers could have fared better as a six episode series or even a movie. There was too much time devoted to a buildup that didn’t really pay off in the end, in a justifiable way at least. There was just too much fluff disguised in cool alien jargon. Unfortunately, these were only distractions from the truth that Nightflyers was a sub-par sci fi series despite the hype that surrounded it. … Read More Nightflyers: Series Review

The Umbrella Academy: Season 1 Review

In focusing on the style rather than substance, The Umbrella Academy just felt like a bunch of stuff thrown around to present an effort to produce an epic, and edgy superhero series that fans can get behind. Unfortunately, the show remains as a third chair in the genre filled with contenders for first as its crescendo fell way short of a bravo! … Read More The Umbrella Academy: Season 1 Review

How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World Review

All in all, How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World had everything going for it — an amazing adventure, a love story, an excitement brought on by a threat of imminent danger, an exploration of friendship, family and self reflection — it was the ultimate tale of growing up and fulfilling one’s destiny. Its an epic conclusion to Hiccup and Toothless’ parallel journeys, one that they deserve, and one that fans have waited for since 2010. It was the perfect sendoff to this wonderful franchise. Bring your hankies, its bound to be a tearful goodbye. … Read More How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World Review

Ulan: Trailer Review

For now, I would have to say that the “Ulan” trailer succeeded in generating interest in its intriguing concept. It piques curiosity while keeping its audiences excited about the mysterious premise of the film. Whether the build up to the mystery would pay off for the film of not, audiences will find out on March 13 when the film releases on Philippine theaters. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that it does. … Read More Ulan: Trailer Review

Ao Haru Ride (Blue Spring Ride) Live Action: Review

All in all, I think that Ao Haru Ride was very poignant and beautiful. It slowly told its story but made it complete so as not to leave out the essential parts of the manga on which it was based. I’m glad that it had a happy ending though. I felt like I deserved that, after this emotional, beautiful film put me in the wringer. Easily one of my favorite Japanese teen movies.… Read More Ao Haru Ride (Blue Spring Ride) Live Action: Review

Velvet Buzzsaw: Movie Review

All in all, I very much liked Velvet Buzzsaw and thought the ending was an excellent touch to imply a continued horror and also close the chapter for this set of characters who were so blinded by ego that they failed to see the big picture (pun intended). Great performances by the cast across the board and an engaging film about a topic that not all people are familiar about — art and possibly serial killers who live next door. Chills. … Read More Velvet Buzzsaw: Movie Review
