MOVIE REVIEW: Never Not Love You (2018)

Antoinette Jadaone’s ‘Never Not Love You’ is her bravest and most nuanced work to date. It paints a realistic portrait of love – the euphoria, the sorrow and everything in between.

MOVIE REVIEW: Pacific Rim Uprising (2018)

A killer when it comes to CGI, Pacific Rim Uprising is a new installment that boasts dynamic battles between Jaegers and Kaijus, exceeding the vivid colors and fight scenes of the first movie.

But when McGregor bites the ...

MOVIE REVIEW: Meet Me in St. Gallen (2018)

Stripped down of unnecessary subplots, Irene Villamor’s Meet Me in St. Gallen trusts its audience to fill-in the gaps (sometimes to a fault) and is anchored by natural acting, profound direction and a consistently improving cinematography. Meet Me in St. Gallen is a story of kindred souls meeting at three different points in their lives. ...
