The cinematography of this film is one of things I love in this movie. The sweeping and aerial shots makes me want to go to Russia and Budapest and experience it. Francis Lawrence gave this one an aesthetic a lot different from The Hunger Games and it suited the overall look of the film. After the major blunder of mother!, Jennifer Lawrence is back in the game. The scene in which she stripped off her clothes is one of the best scene I’ve seen so far. JLaw really took control of that scene. Francis Lawrence and Jennifer Lawrence is a tandem that you really have to see in the big screen.

A modern take on fairy tale, The Shape of Water is worth seeing onthe big screen. The story is simple yet the people behind made it artistically wonderful. Michael Shannon is menacing as always. Michael Stuhlbarg is unrecognizable after Call Me By Your Name but his true-to-life performance never failed to deliver. Richard Jenkins is magnificent and Octavia Spencer’s grounded take is amazing. Sally Hawkins’ performance conveys deep emotions even though she did not utter a single word. Her facial expressions and movements that speaks to the viewers are proof that she is a terrific act...

I did not expect anything before I went inside the cinema but I, Tonya had given me more. Sebastian Stan is a revelation. He broke his Bucky Barnes persona, in my opinion, and gave a performance that will make you love and hate him at the same time. Allison Janney’s performance is great and it paid off because it gave her a Golden Globe. She embodies her character with so much depth so no surprise there. And as the titular character, Margot Robbie slayed it. This film made me love her even more. The scene where she’s putting lipstick on her cheek as she look in the mirror gave me... Read more

The only thing that threw me off in this movie is Xian Lim's voice. They should have keep Ben Wishaw's.

The Greatest Showman (2018)Biography, Drama, Musical
- Hugh Jackman
- Michael Gracey
A minute into it and The Greatest Showman already sets the whole mood with its catchy opening music. The film which stars Hugh Jackman, Zac Efron, Michelle Williams, Rebecca Ferguson and Zendaya is about P. T. Barnum’s wonderful and colorful creation of Barnum and Bailey’s Circus is worth seeing on the big screen. The soundtracks alone, like Rewrite the Stars and This is Me, can be a sole reason to spend money on The Greatest Showman. I got goosebumps in every musical number. It’s no wonder they won Best Original Song in the recently held Golden Globes. Add to it the wonderful chor... Read more

Smaller and Smaller Circles (2017)Crime, Drama
- Nonie Buencamino, Sid Lucero
- Raya Martin
We rarely see a Filipino film that we can compare to big budget, Hollywood blockbusters today but Smaller and Smaller Circles is an exemption the we should be proud of. With veteran actors like Nonie Buencamino, Bembol Roco, Sid Lucero, Ricky Davao, Christopher De Leon, Gladys Reyes and others, the acting was superb compared to the usual Filipino films offered to us these days. From start to finish, I lauded the film score as it gives me the chills and kept me wanting and waiting for what will happen even though I read the novel last year. The cinematography, with tight and close up s... Read more

Call Me By Your Name (2017)Drama, Romance
- Timothée Chalamet, Armie Hammer
- Luca Guadagnino
The only thing you will ever need when you watch this movie is a tissue to wipe away your tears during the climax (no pun intended). Also, see this movie as a love story, not as a gay/homosexual love story but as a LOVE STORY because this film is what it is. This wonderful movie will leave you feeling warm, empty, broken-hearted and sad all at the same time. THIS IS DEFINITELY A MUST-SEE.

If you are a fan of mystery or whodunnit films or an Agatha Christie die-hard like me, you should definitely watch Murder on the Orient Express. There may be some minor changes or omissions from book to film but it helped the movie reach it point. The perfect cast, consisted of Oscar winners and nominees, brought different approaches to their characters and gave them life. The pacing and setting as well as the score sets the mood for each scene and leaves you on the edge of your seat. As a fan of the novel, the overall cinematography is what I imagined it would look like.
