After watching Iron Man 13 years after its original cinematic release, I would say that Iron Man was, and still remains one of the best movies in the MCU. Its pretty hard to top this so Phase 4 better shape up to meet the bar.
All in all, Mortal Kombat as a source material, already had a lot going for it, a good story, a cool soundtrack and great character quotes. It was truly amazing how Warner Bros and New Line Cinema could fail so badly given these built in elements. But they managed to do it glowingly. At the end of the day, it was all style and no substance. It was a weak attempt to replicate the success of a beloved video game.
All in all, The Dark Triad arc was great but it only served to tease my excitement for what will come next. And now another long wait begins. I only take comfort in the fact that I can rewatch the entire series over and over again before the next one starts.
The Way of the House Husband is really funny as it depicts Tatsu’s complete 360 from his life of crime. What’s more, he makes a career out of being a house husband and fully commits to the role. From getting bargains to earning loyalty card points, to doing DIY projects, attending cooking class and even going to the gym with his new buddies — middle aged housewives who have welcomed Tatsu into their fold.
By the movie’s end, audiences will be just as tired, reeling from the aches and pains these two warriors suffered. The ending was nothing short of extraordinary. The best of the Godzilla trilogy for sure and the best Godzilla or Kong film based on my personal opinion. This film gave these two alpha Titans the respect that they deserved and as a result, it is bound to beloved by old and new fans alike. I wouldn’t mind a follow up if it came down to it. You can catch it on HBO Max and select theaters.
If you’re a fan of the DCEU, this is the right movie for you. Feel free to set your expectations high because this film delivered on so many counts. If you’re a movie fan who wants to see a good film and have four hours of your time to spare, this might not be a bad way to go about it. The Snyder Cut is available to stream on HBO Max and HBO Go. Thank you for including us this time around, HBO.
For me, the biggest takeaway from Operation Varsity Blues: The College Admissions Scandal is this. Some kids equate an education from a top university to a pass to a smooth career, but that’s not it. Go where your parents can afford to send you and study the best that you can. Amass as much experience as you can and get a head start in dealing with #adulting responsibilities. That’s your key to success. And parents, stop raising entitled kids by giving them everything. Let them earn what they deserve using their own merits. It’s the same no matter where you are.
I think the greatest success of the series for me was that it made each point in this history lesson so compelling that I easily remember the names of the key players, as well as specific events that shaped this era in Japanese history. It’s tall order for someone who is not familiar with Japanese history at all, save for its connection to my country’s history. I wish that our filmmakers here in the Philippines would be able to come up with such a compelling project to depict our rich history as well.
Personally, I thought that The Lord of the Rings turned up the more solid film adaptations. But this was not to say that Harry Potter’s efforts were for naught. As a matter of fact, apart from the fact that these are both epic blockbuster franchises, its pretty tough to compare them because they have different appeals. They have different settings and they cater to different audience sets.
At the end of the day, the real lesson of the tale is about responsibility and respect. Respect for the rule of law and responsibility for sharing only truthful information online, not versions of the truth, not subjective truth, not the truth tainted by biases, but just the truth. The truth is our shared responsibility and its non negotiable. For the people at the back, I hope you can hear this. The lives of others are not fodder for entertainment.
