All in all, Ang Pagdadalaga ni Lola Mayumi was an effective tongue in cheek take on sex, virginity and everything in between. Bottom line, see a therapist when you need to so you don’t spend close to P10,000 for services not rendered. LOL.

Kudos to the cast for bringing their A game to each role, big or small. Even the extras looked creepy and untrustworthy. Overall, a thumbs up for Out of Body. Hopefully, this serves as a lesson for everyone to listen to their instincts against dangerous situations. It was harrowing to watch Kelley helpless and alone, all while feeling trapped in the same situation the entire 15 minutes that the film was rolling too.

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.

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!
