Wonder Woman: Movie Review

All in all, DC is well on its way to perfecting its formula for its next offerings. I have a guess that with the addition of Ezra Miller and Jason Momoa to the franchise, they will play off the dark and brooding energies that its two main superheroes Superman and Batman have already displayed. Oh, and Wonder Woman doesn’t need to prove herself in upcoming installments, she kicked the boys asses with this movie, for sure.   … Read More Wonder Woman: Movie Review

Netflix’s Good Morning Call: Series Review

All in all, I loved the contradictions — how mature and childish Uehara was at the same time. I loved how innocent and giving Nao was. They were polar opposites but when they came together, they worked. I loved their friends and their family. I felt like I was part of the house party at the end. Speaking of which, I loved the ending — in particular and how Hisashi took charge to speak with the landlady to resolve their housing problem and what his final request was. I loved that the ending could herald a second season but become a series ender as well with no regrets. On the technical side, I would still give cinematography and style to the Koreans but as a manga adaptation, I feel like this is one of the best for the Japanese. Can you tell how much I loved it? If you’re new to Jdramas, “Good Morning Call” is a definite must. … Read More Netflix’s Good Morning Call: Series Review

Struck By Lightning: Movie Review

All in all, Struck by Lightning offered a witty and entertaining take on high school cliches but also did justice to the darker side that came with it as well. It was honest. It was raw and had characters that had a lot of heart. While they were portrayed as stereotypes, Colfer’s writing added layers to them to make the characters that audiences would connect with. At times, the film was harsh but it made no apologies for it. It was sad and at the same time happy because it delivered a real hard look at reality that resonated with the audience. Rather than go with gimmick, Colfer chose to depict truth. And it still blows my mind that it all came from the mind and heart of someone so young. Bravo!… Read More Struck By Lightning: Movie Review

Riverdale: Pilot Review

All in all, The CW really pulled all the stops to make Riverdale completely different from what comic book fans expected and it was a gamble that mostly paid off. It generated interest in the new series but also piqued the interest of its new fans to see what the difference with the original material was — and vice versa. Its off to a good start, and by breaking the chains of its connection with its source material, it also liberated itself to tell its story in its own way and the journey promises to be exciting as it is dark. I think though, that its not gonna be for everybody’s taste. … Read More Riverdale: Pilot Review

Defiance, Loss, Defeat in The Walking Dead Season 7 premiere: Spoilers ahead!!

When episode director Greg Nicotero said in an interview that the Season 7 pilot was one of the most emotional episodes ever shot for the show and the actors all pulled off their best performances, he wasn’t kidding around. Barring the emotional wreck that was the result of this episode, everything was executed to perfection — no exaggeration. … Read More Defiance, Loss, Defeat in The Walking Dead Season 7 premiere: Spoilers ahead!!
