#Netflix The Perfect Date: Movie Review

All in all, The Perfect Date was not a groundbreaking addition to the rom com genre but it managed to deliver on a light and entertaining movie that inspired the happy feels. It knows its place in the general scheme of things and was content to serve its purpose. It had relateable characters, imperfect ones and ones that are still finding their way. At the end of the day, aren’t we all just looking for purpose like Brooks was?… Read More #Netflix The Perfect Date: Movie Review

Searching: Movie Review

Searching was anything but flashy. It was simple. It was subtle. It was creative. It was brave. It had a clear direction in mind, and it was to tell this intense thriller that relied on substance than style (although I was a big fan of this filmmaking technique as well). It tackled important topics like grief and connections and in all of these, it managed to keep audiences well involved in every aspect of the story and blow them away with the ending. If that isn’t a successful filmmaking, I don’t know what is. … Read More Searching: Movie Review

Love, Death + Robots: Series Review

I would have to say kudos to Netflix for funding this type of project to give chances for short film writers and directors to get their work out there for wide distribution. Creators Joshua Donen, David Fincher, Jennifer Miller, and Tim Miller did an excellent job running the show. Its exciting to watch these amazing ideas come to life, especially ones that push the envelope and mainstream boundaries. To say that I’m impressed would be an understatement. … Read More Love, Death + Robots: Series Review

ToraDora : Series Review

All in all, ToraDora easily climbed up to the list of my favorite shoujo animes because it was cute, light, interesting and truthful, albeit exagerrated on the violence part (It is an anime, after all). I particularly loved the last two episodes on how they closed the journey of the five main characters on a hopeful note. Personally though, I would have chosen a kiss as a final frame for Ryuji and Taiga after all they’ve been through instead of a classic head butt but if you bring a tiger and a dragon together, you have to expect something uncoventional. Two thumbs up for this series. If I had more thumbs, I would raise them all. How’s that for a recommendation?… Read More ToraDora : Series Review

Goyo Ang Batang Heneral: Movie Review

All in all, “Goyo: Ang Batang Heneral” had near perfect cinematography but it failed to create a larger than life character in the core of the movie like it did with Heneral Luna. Apart from the implication that Goyo realized his love for his country in his dying moments, as well as his true love for Remedios whom he dedicated his last battle to, Goyo was a disappointing depiction of the life of the Philippine’s youngest general. No matter how great of an actor Paulo Avelino and Carlo Aquino are, there can only be so much they can do with this material. … Read More Goyo Ang Batang Heneral: Movie Review
