Never Not Love You: Film Review

All in all, Never Not Love You is spot on. It took a risk in veering away from the typical formula of previous Jadine movies but it was a risk that paid off. From the great script, to the musical score that emphasized every phase of the relationship, to the cinematography that made viewers appreciate the beauty of London and Makati at night, to the effective portrayal of James and Nadine which made up 80 percent of the movie. It all came together as one of Jadine and Jadaone’s best collaborations yet. … Read More Never Not Love You: Film Review

#Netflix Good Morning Call Season 2: Series Review

All in all, Good Morning Call Season 2, like the original season, felt very familiar, heartwarming, and overflowing with cuteness and feelings. I once said that the original season often made me cry happy tears and the same rang true with season 2. Plus, better clothes, styling and cinematography. I can’t wait for Season 3. Paging #Netflix! Don’t make me wait too long!… Read More #Netflix Good Morning Call Season 2: Series Review

Thor Ragnarok: Movie Review

All in all, “Thor: Ragnarok” had a fun premise. It was also the best out of the three Thor movies if you ask me. I loved that it had great cinematography, a cool soundtrack, a solid cast of characters which equated to a great and entertaining movie. Still, overall, I couldn’t get rid of the feeling that if “Thor: Ragnarok” just dialed down on the comedy a bit and put actually put some depth into the plot, it would have been epic. … Read More Thor Ragnarok: Movie Review

Strong Woman Do Bong Soon: Korean Drama Review

All in all, “Strong Woman Do Bong Soon” was able to deliver a serious message about taking responsibility for one’s strengths (literally and figuratively) in a light and fun atmosphere by using sometimes over the top comedy that pokes fun at the common tropes in rom-com. It maintained audiences’ interest with a multi-faceted story that engaged and entertained from the first minute up to the last. Never a boring moment with this series, whether it was in solving crime or falling in love. But its main strength was truly the insane chemistry between the lead characters. I fervently hope that Park Hyung Sik and Park Bo Young get to work in another rom-com soon, and I mean soon. For now, I will content myself while watching this series over and over and over and over again. … Read More Strong Woman Do Bong Soon: Korean Drama Review

Netflix’s Iron Fist: Why this Marvel series is not as bad as they say

Liking or hating a particular franchise is a matter of prerogative, I always say. And it seems that Netlfix’s final installment to its Marvel Defenders franchise before it sets out to film the actual Defenders series — “Iron Fist” — has been getting a ton of flak for not living up to the standards set by Daredevil, Jessica Jones and Luke Cage. After seeing the first five episodes (I will update this post when I finish all 13), I do get where some of the critics are coming from but I for one, thought that it was a solid installment to the franchise — not the strongest but it did pull its weight. … Read More Netflix’s Iron Fist: Why this Marvel series is not as bad as they say
