What if humans and the supernatural used to co-exist in Manila? That’s the initial premise of Trese, an animated series on Netflix based on a comics series written by Budjette Tan and illustrated by Kajo Baldisimo.
Netflix already announced that they are ending the series with Season 4 but hinted that they would come up with a spin-off set in the same Castlevania universe with an entirely new cast of characters without Warren Ellis, the show’s creator and writer.
This is my first time to watch a regional film from the Visayas, one of the featured films in the 4th Pista ng Pelikulang Pilipino. Salvi: Ang Pagpadayon (Salvi: The Journey Continues) is a 2013 independent Hiligaynon film (with English subtitles) written and directed by T.M. Malones.
RPG Metanoia is the first full-length Filipino 3D animated film and one of the official entries in the 2010 Metro Manila Film Festival written and directed by Luis C. Suarez
Is an LGBTQ film shown in 2000 still relevant after twenty years? This is what I’ve asked myself when I learned that Markova: Comfort Gay is one of the 170 films featured in this year’s Pista ng Pelikulang Pilipino (Filipino Film Festival) in its digitally restored and re-mastered form.
Now on its fourth year, as the world is facing the COVID-19 pandemic crisis, Pista ng Pelikulang Pilipino will be running from 31 October to 13 December 2020 instead of its usual week-long run via its FDCP Channel online, showcasing more than 170 Filipino films consisting of 80 short films and 90 full length features, across different genres.
It can be compared to Project Runway, as this is a reality TV competition among fashion designers. But their differences are what made me like this series.
Having these three veteran actors plus an award-winning film director in one movie is already a treat. Never mind the 3 hours 48 minutes, the whole story deserved that length. At first, one may think that the Taxi Driver meets Goodfellas and then The Godfather. But this is based from a true story and Sheeran’s actions may have answered Hoffa’s long-unsolved disappearance.
The Boy Band Con is a US documentary film produced by *NSYNC’s Lance Bass. The film shows the career and legacy of Lou Pearlman, the man behind the Backstreet Boys, *NSYNC, etc. and the frauds he committed until his death in prison.
The first time I tasted Hong Kong Style Noodles was sometime 2006 or 2007. If my memory serves me right, this is the first of its kind and other brands of stir-fried noodles followed suit.
Recently, I went to a 7-Eleven store and found different varieties of Snickers. I fancied to take one of each to taste them all and here’s what I can say.
Anthony Bourdain’s Bone in the Throat his first fictional novel about a sous chef and his uncle who belonged to the mob, living in Manhattan’s Little Italy.
Casting JonBenet is a 2017 documentary film by Kitty Green about the JonBenet Ramsey murder case in 1996 and the actors’ thoughts about her death and its investigation.
It is far different from the game because this series fleshed out Carmen’s backstory.
The Keepers is a 2017 documentary by Ryan White about the unsolved murder of Sister Cathy Cesnik in Baltimore sometime in November 1969.
Audrie & Daisy is a 2016 American documentary film that tells about two stories of teenage rape cases whose victims were under the influence of alcohol.
Hercule Poirot received a letter from someone named Miss Emily Arundell from Market Basing. The letter was dated 17th of April but he received it on the 28th of June. Poirot already found it strange, and its content disturbing.
Ang Anak ni Brocka is a 2005 Cinema One Originals that explored the question, “what if the famous director had a son?”
I found it unusual that Hercule Poirot appeared past the story’s midpoint. But then again, with Poirot investigating, everyone in the school becomes a suspect.
A professional assassin, a mafia family, the FBI and the NYPD… mix them up in intelligence and counter-intelligence, you get a page-turner of a novel.
In this series, Clare’s ex-husband Matteo is getting married to Breanne. Clare gets hired to provide gourmet coffee for the wedding reception. But a Breanne look-alike dancer was shot dead after Matteo’s bachelor party and Clare is willing to be Shirley Holmes.
An action-packed story that hooked me at the beginning until the end. A good, entertaining, and educational read (a little history of Texas included).
This is the third novel to feature Hercule Poirot as the lead detective. It was originally a fifty-four part series in the London Evening News in 1925 under the title, Who Killed Ackroyd?
The novel is the first of the William Monk detective series set during the Victorian era right after the Crimean War. A detective story plus a historical fiction would be a nice combination.
