    Little Women

    ★★★★★

    Greta Gerwig, herself a writer, understands not only the story but also the history of Little Women. Her film, a fresh adaptation of the 1868 classic, is also a necessary tribute to Louisa May Alcott.

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

    NOTE: Nabigyan tayo nang pagkakataong makapanood ng dalawang pelikula na dumaan na sa digitization o restoration sa FPJ Studios. Hindi ko alam kung ipalalabas ito sa anumang platform kaya hayaan niyong ikuwento ko na rin ang pelikula para sa mga mausisa. Walang audio ang pelikula.

    Nagmamadaling pumunta ng Cebu ang lalaki (Bob Soler). May tinatakasan siyang babae na nais ipagkasundo sa kanya (o buntis ba ang babae). Kasama ang kanyang kaibigan (Jerry Pons) ay nanirahan muna ito sa kanyang kakilala…

    Hating Peter Tatchell

    ★★★½

    Going up against Mugabe and Putin? The courage. Incredible.

    One more thing: HE UNDERSTOOD THE CONCEPT OF INTERSECTIONALITY FROM THE START.

    Seaspiracy

    ★½

    this would have been better had the film presented concrete solutions other than "i will not eat fish"

    also, terrible title

    the twiterrati is correct, "conspira-sea"

    STRAY THOUGHTS:

    thank goodness marine biologists are speaking out on twitter
