    I kinda did not feel the romance. Maybe it's not a Guy Ritchie thing. I see the Ritchie in the acrobatics and stunts. But I felt nothing. Alladin, the animated one, was magical. This was just okay.

    What the f is this ? The movie takes its sweet time establishing that the main character is so unlucky in love. Wow ain’t that original. And she’s unlucky till the end. Those flashbacks to her childhood don’t help make the movie profound. They make it look pretentious.

    It’s a Hallmark kind of movie. Viggo was good and engaging, but Mahershala looked like he just learned acting like he just learned how to play the piano. Too careful. I know that he was playing someone uptight but it was almost like he was playing Judi Dench playing the Queen.

    Shyamalan forgot that we don’t really follow his movies like we do with the Avengers. My viewing could have been helped by watching Unbreakable and Split, but was it going to be worth it anyway. No. Glass is too ambitious but like the facility that was supposed to hold these supermen, it lacked fortitude and weight. Who the f assigns one security guard to three supposedly dangerous people? Who the f writes that kind of s for such an ambitious premise? Shyamalan. As always.

    This is a mess. It's a well-intentioned mess, but a mess nonetheless. Tirso Cruz is a great actor. I was most interested in his story. He should have been the lead here. The two old guys serve as a backdrop to the children's stories. This is not about two old gay guys (well the other one seemed to have just used the other) dealing with ageing. This is about adult children being like children.

    wellllllllll. It is Mary Poppins, but I don't know how something like this exists in these times. It still moves somehow like the original, and even if I do not recall anymore how the first movie was, I was stuck with the idea of having Julie Andrews as a nanny, and supercalifragilisticexpialidocious for a week. I don't know if Emily Blunt will have the same effect. Probably not.

    I tried. Never seen a Vice Ganda movie before. We spend money on this? And we wonder why the Philippines is poor.
