All in all, Ocean’s 8 was not a bad movie at all. Its just that the first movies set the bar too high that it became too much for the spinoff to meet. It was a good attempt to showcase women empowerment though and it gets my respect for that. … Read More Ocean’s 8: Movie Review
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.

The movie reveals just enough information to keep the audiences engaged and follows up with a lot of scary supernatural moments distributed throughout the movie. The Autopsy of Jane Doe was sufficiently gory, effectively scary and competently executed. It didn’t go overboard but rather built on the film’s strengths brick by brick. By its end, audiences are flabbergasted but in a good way. Definitely not for the faint-hearted, though. Great practical effects too, by the way.… Read More The Autopsy of Jane Doe: 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
So, I am super psyched that the spoiler that I read last week was actually a dud so I got to enjoy the full impact of Avengers Infinity War at face value. I admit that I’m pretty impressed by the way the number of stars and action sequences were handled in this movie and I… Read More Avengers Infinity War: Movie Review
For me, Bad Genius was anything but genius. It was a copout to give the final credit to its lead character. While I appreciated the concept and the suspense, there was no justice and that I could not forgive.… Read More Bad Genius: Movie Review
All in all, Midnight Runners involved a lot of running, brawling, mystery and ethical questions. It will definitely take the audience on a roller coaster ride for its over an hour run. With characters that are rootable and relatable, you can’t help but feel invested in the outcome of their accidental mission. It was well paced and it had a lot of heart. And while its ending was generic, you can’t help but be happy to have at least seen this movie. It was fun. … Read More Midnight Runners: Movie Review
