Rainbow’s Sunset: Film Review

All in all, Rainbow’s Sunset had a loftly goal and the tools to achieve it. However, it became too greedy and tried to bite of more than it can chew by opening doors that it could not close by the movie’s end. As a result, the film felt like scattered pieces of a puzzle that never quite became whole. It felt incomplete and audiences feel like they have been cheated out of something amazing by the time they leave the cinema. I get it. I appreciate the message, but the execution left a lot to be desired. … Read More Rainbow’s Sunset: Film Review

The Smile Has Left Your Eyes: Korean Drama Review

All in all, I was completely blown away by the entire production. It was very simple but it was perfectly paced and set up just right. It had just the right amount of push and pull to keep audiences hooked and I, for one, was at the edge of my seat the entire time, rooting for a happy end for these three characters I have come to love in a small period of time. The Smile Has Left Your Eyes is quite different from what I would normally invest my time on but it was a series that left its mark on me. It was brilliant.… Read More The Smile Has Left Your Eyes: Korean Drama Review

Aquaman: Film Review

All in all, I loved that the film reignited interest in a character that always took the backseat to the likes of Batman and Superman, just like Iron Man was to Captain America before the film blew up to be a box office success. Robert Downey Jr. connected Iron Man to the fans. Aquaman, for his part, was cool and edgy and was a true superhero through and through. The movie showed his journey to meet his destiny and it wasn’t corny one single bit but because Arthur was just like any one of us. Jason Momoa made Aquaman a part of the audience’s family like he was a part of the ocean and surface worlds and he did it in the short space of 2 1/2 hours. So congrats DC, after many tries, you finally nailed it. And it was EPIC. All caps. You deserve it.… Read More Aquaman: Film Review

The House with a Clock in its Walls: Movie Review

All in all, Eli Roth managed to sate his penchant for blood and gore with pumpkins that spewed out their crushed insides and a decaying evil wizard who had rotten teeth, although it was not as his usual level of horror. Overall, the CGI was good and the magic was there too that would keep children and adults alike entertained for its 1 hour and 45 minute run. Its a good adaptation of the 1973 book by Jonathan Bellairs but I wouldn’t say that this was my favorite kids’ movie. Still, it was a passable one.… Read More The House with a Clock in its Walls: Movie Review

Creeped Out: Series Review

All in all, I like the feel and flow of Creeped Out. While its not scary enough to keep you awake at night, its a good show for pre-teens and teens because its cool enough to keep them intrested and it has enough substance and style to deliver good standalone stories that gets the kids to think. Check it out on Netflix before the second season comes out next year.
