    Wedding Season

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    A lesson on why we gotta be nice to the nerds: if they don't have money to pay you with yet, they'll pay you in stocks that you can later use to bail out your parents' failing business and fund your girlfriend's microfinance initiatives in Southeast Asia ✨

    Avatar: The Way of Water

    Saw this on a Monday, which happens to be the day that movies are free for senior citizens in our city, so the cinema was pretty packed. The old lady next to me brought Chinese takeout — and she nodded to sleep for a good twenty minutes in the middle of the film — and then when she woke up, she would exclaim and describe what was happening onscreen to her awake, non-blind elderly companions.

    Black Panther: Wakanda Forever

    Black Panther: Wakanda Forever

    Bit clunky, especially in the middle — but oh, the things this film will make you feel. I've literally never cried over an MCU film before, but exceptions were made for this one.

    Three Thousand Years of Longing

    Reminds me of that magnificently sketched horse with the hastily scribbled rear end.

    Nope

    Too many times I found myself too terrified to do anything but laugh.

    Last in a three-part Cinemalaya marathon I went on because I had nothing else to do last Sunday. Congrats to the rich kids for opening their eyes, I guess, even if it only took them literally going through the struggles of the Drug War victims first. Pogi ni Elijah Canlas.

    Bakit 'Di Mo Sabihin?

    Second in a three-part Cinemalaya marathon I went on because I had nothing else to do last Sunday. I'm still peeved that they didn't cast actual PWD actors in the leading roles, pero "inspired by a true story" naman daw so sige na lang kuno?

    Batsoy

    First of a three-part Cinemalaya marathon I went on because I had nothing else to do last Sunday. The child actors were great, but the script was just okay and the camera work gave me simulator sickness.

    A must-watch in these troubling times, even if it's not very technically good.
