MOVIE REVIEW: The Beguiled (2017) [2 of 2]

A re-imagining of Don Siegel’s 1971 classic through the reversal of gender perspective, Sofia Coppola’s The Beguiled delivers a chilling retelling of the blistering collision of the sexes through the female persona in a period thriller that’s so reserved, so quiet, but so powerfully effective. The Beguiled is set a couple of years into the Civil ...

MOVIE REVIEW: It (2017)

  Shot with meticulous craftsmanship, boasting with camp classic 80’s horror scare tactics that never get old, Andrés Muschietti’s It (2017) proves that adaptations and horror films are still in the game for cinematic marvel.

MOVIE REVIEW: Love You to the Stars and Back (2017)

Romantic comedies involving two different fates colliding could easily go astray to the cliché route; not with the masterful hands of Antoinette Jadaone whose treatment to Love You to the Stars and Back is rich and heartfelt, it’s an instant classic.

MOVIE REVIEW: 100 Tula para kay Stella (2017) [2 of 2]

Never seek to tell thy love,  Love that never told can be;  For the gentle wind does move  Silently, invisibly. I told my love, I told my love  I told her all my heart;  Trembling, cold, in ghastly fears, Ah! she doth depart. Soon as she was gone from me,  A traveller came by;  Silently, ...

MOVIE REVIEW: 100 Tula para kay Stella (2017) [1 of 2]

Jason Paul Laxamana’s 100 Tula Para kay Stella offers a pragmatic approach to a tale of unrequited love in an ethereal synthesis of time, poetry and music whilst wrapped in the grounded, hard edges of life’s reality. The film starts with the introduction of the typical nerdy, stuttering wallflower Fidel (JC Santos) and the typical ...
