If there is one non-Fifty Shades romantic movie you should watch this year, it’s this.

  It’s called Playing it Cool, a Justin Reardon-directed romcom slated to be out the day before Valentine’s Day in the US and God knows when in the rest of the globe. Can’t believe I’ve only discovered the trailer last week, and so many familiar faces in one cut! Imagine … Captain America working under Falcon Chris Evans […]

Even Spider-Man cannot defy death.


Note: This is one of those spontaneous posts I mentioned about on my blogging resolutions post. I just got to let the word out now.


“I made a choice. This is my path.”

This is coming from a non-comic-book-reading fangirl’s standpoint: Spider-Man was and still is my favorite superhero for all that he is (a good boy) and for the things that he’s not (the usual mega-wealthy, sturdy built, god-like superhero archetype).

I want to do this for no other reason than sharing my love of Peter Parker and his story. I hope it can help you see that everything that was thrown at him in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 would eventually mold him into the great character that we all know and love.

By now I’m sure most of you already know what’s going to happen. Regardless, you can rest assured there are no spoilers beyond this point.

When you were young, were you one of those kids who hated the downward pull of gravity? Because without it, you can fly?

Well, I didn’t exactly hate it, but I often liken the possibilities if it didn’t exist.

My thoughts have orbited to a full circle after I saw Alfonso Cuarón’s record-breaking 3D thriller, Gravity, last weekend, especially when I felt like I really was a weightless observer floating in space, my five senses wholly engrossed in the subliminal 4DX experience at Grand Indonesia’s Blitzmegaplex.

Setting by far the largest October opening in box-office history (of an estimated USD 55.6 million), Cuarón’s super-ambitious, super long-awaited piece (took him almost five years to make, as he told Wired) has been bagging high praises from the world’s most respected film viewers and makers alike.

The most romantic movie of all time?

I such a basic b*tch in this case. No other rom-coms or dramas compare to how I felt after watching The Notebook. To most guys, this movie looks so much like a fairytale and that it can never exist in real life. That’s kind of true … until I met Stanley. I’ll be honest here: […]
