Granny’s Peach Tea is Lex Luthor’s ‘bucket full of pee’


 Yep. That’s what we think of it. And that is why Sen. June Finch (Holly Hunter) cringed when she saw and realized the mason jar in front of her was labeled Granny’s Peach Tea. It wasn’t the bomb that shook her. It was the pee! The urine. Warning: This article contains spoilers. If you haven’t watched Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, leave now or forever regret this moment it ever happened. But if you’ve seen it already, have fun and enjoy our little effort of unraveling mysteries from this epic superhero movie directed by Zack Snyder. Okay let’s go back to […]


FLOTSAM the movie scores great tracks and girls in bikinis


 Some people go to the beach to have fun, relax, and unwind. Some to mend and forget a broken heart. But for people and visitors of Surf Town in La Union, (San Juan, that is) it’s catching the wave that fulfills the soul. This is what FLOTSAM the movie is all about, written and directed by Jay Abello who spent a lot of time in La Union for a year and got inspired to write a documentary about making coffee, making pizza, and waiting for the waves. Co-written by Mickey Galang who has lived in San Juan for ten years, FLOTSAM […]


Game of Thrones’ Mother of Dragons Emilia Clarke deserves another Terminator Genisys sequel


 Baby face Emilia Clarke, who is popularly known as Daenerys Targaryen in the HBO series Game of Thrones, is a badass Sarah Connor in Terminator Genisys. Linda Hamilton put a stamp on the Sarah character but this is 2015. Clarke can pick up from Hamilton‘s Sarah. Too bad they say that the movie was a flop and it seems there will be no sequel for Clarke. No, they can’t blame Arnold ‘Pops’ Schwarzenegger for the box office flop. However they say it, we like how the storyline was conceived. Each characters has their own build-up thing in the movie. The time travel twist may […]


3 Flaws in the beginning of Taken 3


 “I’ll come for you. I’ll find you. And we both know what’s going to happen!” Those were strong threatening words. In Taken 3 (also stylized TAK3N) we are brought to the story of a man seeking revenge on the murder of his ex-wife, a continuous life cycle of revenge from the character of ex-covert operative Bryan Mills (Liam Neeson). The Taken installment is always the most anticipating film ever since its released in 2008. But as Taken 3 progressed in the beginning, we’ve noticed 3 flaws (morally and lawfully disturbing from the start) so predictably it gone wrong. On the first case. When Bryan‘s daughter […]

THE INTERVIEW. And then boom, boom, boom...

Wrapping up 2014 with The Interview, the movie that we almost failed to see


 The Interview It wasn’t bad at all. Honestly, this is Seth Rogen‘s best role performance that we have seen. Not too cocky and annoying. The only person who’ll get pissed with The Interview will be Kim Jong-un. Don’t ask us why. You probably would have known it by now. And the only thing that will surely leave a bad taste in the mouth would be the scene where The Interview specifically ‘killed a real living person.’ Nobody ‘kills a real living person‘ on film. Not yet, until The Interview. That would be a tough job for the film’s production outfit and we won’t […]

TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES 2014. Not bad for a reboot.

MOVIE REVIEW: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2014 still has the Cowabunga appeal


 Hate to break this but contrary to some critics predictions, Michael Bay‘s reboot of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle (2014) wasn’t a shallow one. We too got the initial thoughts that we’d be bombarded with hundred million of dollars special effects that would ‘kill’ the story-line but we were wrong. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle (2014) movie kicks-ass, admit it or not. But of course, we could not please everyone.And for those, and that include us, who think that Megan Fox would not fit to play April O’Neil because of her too much good look, well, fortunately for her, she did just well in this […]

LUCY MOVIE REVIEW. Twisting full brain capacity in this breath-taking action film starring Scarlett Johansson.

MOVIE REVIEW: Lucy transcends to a vivid trip of human philosophy on the big screen


 Finally, we’ve seen Lucy starring Scarlett Johansson on the big screen at the Promenade Theater in Greenhills and we shall say that this movie, aside from it will leave you on a cliff of wanting for a sequel (which we doubt won’t happen in the near future), is entertaining enough to slow your heartbeat with its action packed and gruesome scenes as the story picks up its plot. Imagine the Matrix and Limitless combined, Lucy transcends to a vivid trip of human philosophy on the big screen.The story is quite simple yet it defies the essence of creation and the logic of the […]

ENEMY 2014. Enemy is psychosexual and was inspired by 2002 novel The Double by Jose Saramago and was brought to film directed by Denis Villeneuve.

Jake Gyllenhaal’s Enemy 2014 review that is all about a mind-boggling experimental trippy movie


 As soon as the last scene unfolds, the theater audience were like “What the fuck happened?” It’s like diving to Filipino lingo “Anyare?” as Jake Gyllenhaal‘s doppelgänger character eased a sigh before the end credit of Enemy appears. This event happened on a SONA 2014 day.To our mind, everyone who came out of the movie house were either dumb-founded, crazy laughing, confused, disappointed, satisfied, to somehow disturbed of what we’ve seen for a couple of hours. Thanks to Solar Pictures Philippines, we’ve finally saw this 2013 Toronto International Film Festival movie on it’s Philippine premiere. Enemy also bagged Best Director, Best Actress, […]

BEGIN AGAIN. Begin Again is a love story that is 'in-love' with music.

What if Begin Again has an alternate ending? Here’s what we’ve got to say about this musical melodrama movie about love and music!


 Until now, we were hoping that Dan and Gretta would eventually fall in love together and they will live happily ever after. And that would be cheesy. You thought so that was cool? Nah. Because Begin Again is not your average type of cheesy bubble-gum romantic film. But you won’t get disappointed because the movie touches the heart and the soul. It has the perfect love story within. Love between two people and the love for music.It was quite clear in the first running sequences that it would be awkward that Dan and Gretta would end up together. Mark Ruffalo‘s character here […]
