Check it out on Netflix before the second season comes out next year.

For several years now, my brother, sis-in-law and I have built a tradition during Christmas-time to support local cinema by watching the Metro Manila Film Festival.

To be honest, there are hits and a lot of misses… Read More Shake, Rattle and Roll 15: Movie Review
