    The Cover

    ★★★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    "In Benidorm, artists and audience participate in the same lie, turning it into truth."

    El Cover or The Cover by Secun De La Rosa is a simple yet meaningful story. It showed us the many faces of the word cover, starting with our main character Dani.

    One of the best 2021 series on Netflix!

    D.P. (2021) has a good start and a great ending. The story, actors, music, direction, you name it, everything was well put together.

    Anyway, I don't know what else to say except to encourage you to watch this series. (*There are only six episodes.) It is worth your time. And whether or not there is a second season, this season already speaks volumes.

    Beauty Queen is the director Aquino’s thesis project and an ode to her Filipino heritage. It shows the struggles Remedios has endured since her father’s death and a very different life from the one she is accustomed to. Yet, she overcame the obstacles and found what she can do.

    Carina Febie Agustin’s performance as she transitions from a Beauty Queen to a red lipstick-wearing warrior was a sight to behold. It was emotional and uplifting at the same time. People could learn a lot from Commander Liwayway.

    So take this movie as an inspiration and sign to rise. Make your voice heard.
