  • Sonic the Hedgehog

    Sonic the Hedgehog

    ★★★

    A fun and heartfelt family movie. Nostalgic for those who used to play the video game. The story though is predictable and conventional. There is Sonic copying quicksilver's kitchen scene in Days of Future Past twice, olive garden commercial and most of all, the classic Jim Carrey is back.

    PH Advance Screening.

  • Culion

    Culion

    ★★★

    Metro Manila Film Festival 2019 - 3/8

    There are great arguments about history and colonialism in Culion but those are sketchily drawn. Nonetheless, it is beautifully produced and boasts a great ensemble. Heck, even its all-female trinity of talent alone is enough reason for you to see it.

    Notes:

    * iffy visual effects rendering
    * the script needs cohesion

    Anna

    ★★★½

    Some people in letterboxd would hate me for liking this film. But yeah I like it so deal with it!

    Witty, twisted and full of pumped up action. Anna echoes thematic and visual elements of Besson's action thriller film Nikita. But this time he improves the narrative of its central character. Although it may look familiar, it manages to be unpredictable allthroughout. A film that you thought you know what might happen but it is always one step ahead. Sasha Luss debut acting proves that she can go head to head to high-caliber actors in the likes of Mirren , Murphy and Evans.

  • Aladdin

    Aladdin

    ★★★½

    Clear all your doubts to Will Smith's casting. His take on genie exceeds my expectation. Aladdin is visually spectacular and a dazzling extension of the animated film we love. Naomi Scott voice is phenomenal.

    A Whole New World? Not so much.
