Apart from the message, the use of the 360 degree camera gives the film a unique and surreal feel. It contributes to the feeling of Arjan being in control of his environment. The background music also shifts to a more upbeat tone as the film progresses and as Arjan unlocks more discoveries in his little planet. It gives the film a sense of wonder and adventure and helps the the audience grow more excited for Arjan and his exploits.
Director Alphie Velasco’s Kawatan sa Salog succeeded in getting its message across but it lacked the whimsy that one normally expects in a film with a child as a main character. All in all, I guess that’s still the best compliment I can offer for this uncanny redemption piece.
All in all, I loved that Crossing, like its title, straddled the gray area that connected good and evil, black and white. In its quiet approach, it compelled the viewers’ mind to run rampant with possibilities. This is something quite astounding to accomplish in such a short period.
It’s a good takeaway, that despite our sense of isolation, we can reach out to others and ease our burdens as we deal with this challenge together. Despite its heavy content, Maski Papano was fun. It was simple yet it held a power borne from creativity. I loved it. Congrats directors Che Tagyamon And Glen

All in all, Blood Red Sky was an interesting addition to the vampire genre. I hope this will inspire the same level of suspense for future offerings. You can always have more tricks up your sleeve even if you are working with an time-worn trope like vampires.
After fearing the zombies for the better part of two seasons of Kingdom, Ashin of the North made me want to root for them somewhat because of this special episode. As usual, I was blown away by everything, from the production, to the story (Kim Eun Hee), to the masterful direction (Kim Seong Hoon) — and to think this was shot during a pandemic. Amazing. The level of badassery in this installment was nothing short of masterful. Bravo! Well done, Netflix!
Props to lead star Matilda Ana Ingrid Luz (that’s a mouthful) and co-directors Roberto De Feo and Paolo Strippoli who also wrote the screenplay with Lucio Besana. They really made the film stand out. It delivered its fair share of scares and you really feel for the female lead in her struggle to survive. I think that is what is lacking these days — a rootable main character that viewers can really get behind. In this sense, the film was a success and put itself alongside some of the more memorable horror features released during the pande
I was actually curious about the casting of Jeon Jeong Seo as Tokyo in the Korean version of […]
In the end, even after 2 1/2 hours, it felt like a run off the mill popcorn movie. Army of the Dead was well made but it wasn’t shocking, mind blowing or a game changer in the zombie genre.
