#Netflix Kingdom: Korean Series Review

All in all, I would consider Kingdom to be one of Korea’s finest saeguk dramas that can rival the suspense and intensity of HBO’s Game of Thrones. By the first season’s end, it had Battle of Castle Black feels which only fueled one’s desire to see what happens next when the second season opens. Too bad filming will only begin next month and fans will have to wait for another few months before we could binge on another epic season. I for one, could not wait to see if my conspiracy theories are correct. One word for the entire thing — brilliant, even though it ended on a cliffhanger. I could not think of more superlatives for this series. Seriously. … Read More #Netflix Kingdom: Korean Series Review

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.

I appreciate the message, but the execution left a lot to be desired. … Read More Rainbow’s Sunset: Film Review

Mercury is Mine: Movie Review

Mercury was Mine was overall, not a bad movie. But I had too many issues with it to consider it a good one. I think that it was a good social commentary on how Filipinos viewed Americans as a superior race but the film was saying so much more that the message was muddled by everything that the script wanted to say. At times, it was cringe-worthy. I don’t doubt that many people will find this a great film but personally, I’m not one of those people. Sorry, not sorry. Maybe I just didn’t get the memo. … Read More Mercury is Mine: Movie Review
