So all in all, the only crime that Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald committed was hyping up this film so much when it should have been marketed as a transition film. This is also the reason that this powerhouse cast of talented actors seemed like they had nothing much to do in this installment so they shouldn’t get too much flak for doing what the script says. Could Crimes of Grindelwald have amped up the action, or just fleshed out the story just a bit? It definitely could have found better use of its 134 minute running time. But I feel confident that all this frustration will pay off in the connecting chapter. Fingers crossed, fellow Potterheads. Fingers crossed.… Read More Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald Movie Review
All in all, I have no doubt that The Haunting of Hill House has set a new bar for horror franchises for television with this 10-episode series. No cheap thrills for this one, but it gets viewers invested in the characters and makes them care what happens to these unfortunate souls after all they have been through. Its dark and sinister and its refreshing at the same time. Its weird to describe it like that but that’s that. … Read More The Haunting of Hill House: Series Review
All in all, there was not enough time for Bleach to really tell its story but it did well enough with the time it was allotted. I think fans like myself would be satisfied with the approach but because we know what’s coming, we feel like there’s still a lot missing. Still, it was a good start — not yet an epic one, but it created enough excitement about what’s to come and that’s a success in my book. … Read More #Netflix Bleach Live Action: Movie Review
It took me a while to finish the latest version of Meteor Garden compared to my previous dramas because let me just state for the record that this is the longest Chinese drama that I have watched and my first mainland drama to complete. However, as I managed to accomplish the seemingly daunting task, I… Read More Meteor Garden 2018: Series Review
All in all, I give #ToAllTheBoysIveLovedBefore a thumbs up. Its not rocket science but it manages to deliver on a feel-good romantic comedy and reminds us all what its like to be confused and in love for the first time.
I was touched by the message of The Room, a manifestation of Tommy’s dream of having a world where everybody loved everybody. It was a conversation about being accepted fully and unconditionally, despite outward appearances, and despite being different. I salute Tommy for following his dreams even though nobody really believed in him. I’m happy he found a true believer in Franco. It takes a lot of courage and confidence to do something while being faced with everyone’s ridicule and I’m happy that this “documentary” was able to show Tommy’s heart, even if it not reveal his true identity. … Read More The Disaster Artist: Movie Review
All in all Deadpool 2 was very consistent with the first movie, and was super entertaining with the script and the amazing action sequences. But it stopped short of being great when it refused to take itself seriously, even for a bit. And if you treat an entire movie as a joke, it gets monotonous after a while, and you lose sight of why you were rooting for it in the first place. Having said all that, Deadpool was still a solid addition to the franchise and managed to correct some booboos made by the Wolverine Origins movie in the post credits. Hopefully, next time, there would be a better balance of humor and seriousness to make Deadpool the compelling hero he is in the comic books.
