I was seriously expecting The Kingmaker to be a documentary favorable to the Marcoses, given that it was being shown at the Cultural Center of the Philippines and former First Lady Imelda Marcos was its patron. However, I was pleasantly surprised that it presented an insightful documentary true to its purpose, highlighting the role of Imelda… Read More The Kingmaker (and the politics of Imelda Marcos): Documentary Review
Killer Inside: The Mind of Aaron Hernandez was much like his first trial, incompetently handled and a mess altogether.

I hid under the blanket for the cat and murder videos. I didn’t have the stomach for it knowing what was going to happen. Don’t F*ck with Cats unfolded just like a real-life movie and it was terrifying to realize that such people truly exist in this world and that people relish notoriety for evil acts. Poor innocent animals. Poor Jun Lin. … Read More Don’t F*ck With Cats: Documentary Review
Bundy will forever be etched in history as one of the most notorious serial killers in history because he is the poster boy for the saying that one should not judge a book by its cover. The evil that he has committed and his obvious pride at what he has accomplished is a terrifying wake up call that transcends generations.

Seeing Jan’s haunted expression after she talks extensively about her experience, I have no doubt that the experience will continue to haunt her for the rest of her life. I applaud Jan for becoming a motivational speaker and wanting to help other victims like herself and I wish her that after all she has gone through, she would still find peace and live her best life possible. Though the Brobergs did not handle the situation ideally, I do hope they manage to rebuild the relationships that were broken and move on from this dark time in their family’s life. The fact that they came out and truthfully admitted their faults is a positive step to healing although in this age of social media, I’m sure they will be judged harshly by the public. … Read More Abducted in Plain Sight: Documentary Review
I was very intrigued by this movie when it was initially released because of all the controversy surrounding it, mainly Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin’s strong opposition to it. I read somewhere that Palin didn’t like how she was portrayed in the movie that gives viewers a peek behind in the scenes at the 2010 Republican campaign… Read More Game Change: A Review
