I was prepared for a coming of age drama when I entered the screening of writer director Maricel Cariaga’s Children of the River. However, I was caught off guard by the myriad of emotions that […]
I would have to say that Ulan will not be a film for everybody. Its success or failure is relative to the audience’s taste. One thing is for sure, though. Its an unforgettable film that challenges convention and its one brave movie for going against the norm.
All in all, I think that Ao Haru Ride was very poignant and beautiful. It slowly told its story but made it complete so as not to leave out the essential parts of the manga on which it was based. I’m glad that it had a happy ending though. I felt like I deserved that, after this emotional, beautiful film put me in the wringer. Easily one of my favorite Japanese teen movies.
All in all, “A Dog’s Way Home” succeeded in telling the story of a beautiful friendship and an incredible journey between a human and his dog. Truth be told, the trailer basically covers all the bases. Still, you have to watch the entire film to fully experience this beautiful, entertaining, touching and all around feel good tale. There have been plenty of dog movies made but this one will definitely be one that leaves a mark on your heart.
All in all Deadpool 2 was very consistent with the first movie, and was super entertaining with the script and the amazing action sequences. But it stopped short of being great when it refused to take itself seriously, even for a bit. And if you treat an entire movie as a joke, it gets monotonous after a while, and you lose sight of why you were rooting for it in the first place. Having said all that, Deadpool was still a solid addition to the franchise and managed to correct some booboos made by the Wolverine Origins movie in the post credits. Hopefully, next time, there would be a better balance of humor and seriousness to make Deadpool the compelling hero he is in the comic books.
After I’ve seen The Kissing Booth in its entirety, I am impressed by the simple, formulaic rom com that held its own in terms of originality. Plus, its stars are all super cute.
All in all, Ready Player One was tons of fun. It had a great cast that gelled well together and it had a very relateable and rootable story that was told properly without being overpowered by the CGI. It had a great core message that can be applied to today’s world, reality is what matters. Word.
All in all, I wasn’t scared by Stephen King’s “It” watching it now, 27 years after it was first released. But there is a huge potential in the story and the execution once it is adapted into a darker, more ominous version. I’m excited.
“Fight for My Way” consistently delivered from start to finish and it was very hard for me to pick a favorite scene as there were so many. This drama took me through a roller coaster of emotions and by its end, I felt like I knew the characters so well that I was truly invested in their journey. I think for any drama, “Fight for My Way” achieved something extraordinary with its realistic approach because it represented the travails of people who actually watched the show and this made it really special. Kudos to the entire team. After I get some rest for binge watching the past three nights, I know that I will be watching this drama again, and again and again. More projects with Park Seo Joon and Kim Ji Won please!!!
After sorting through my blogs (yes, I have tried to blog before, not quite successfully), I managed to unearth one in 2009 about one of my favorite animated movies ever Disney-Pixar’s UP. Disney-Pixar scored yet […]
