When I began writing this movie review of Enemy, my first move was to search and try to find some meaning to the movie.  I did it not because I did not understand it but rather, I want to know if in some way what I see is in some way similar to others.  I also prohibited myself from reading any spoiler from them because I want to give a review solely on my own.

ENEMY features Academy Award Nominee Jake Gyllenhaal with director, Academy Award Nominee Denis Villeneuve.  Gyllenhaal portrays a double character in this movie.  He portrays an actor named Anthony Clair and also history professor Adam Belle.   This film derives its basic plot from "The Double" by Nobel Laureate José Saramago.

If there is one thing I can totally relate to was Fifty Shades of Grey.  Yes, as a person I can relate to him and as to what I believe when it comes to things discussed in the book and the film, I would agree that at some point I am in the same belief as he is.

Everyone has a dream and everyone has a reason to have that dream.  I am a single dad to 3 kids with a loveble girl whom I love so much.  The dream to fly and visit a destination in the Philippines and to relax somehow is for me one of the most exciting gift we could ever had.  That dream would be better if I will not only travel to a destination I love but also experience the all new and first every Air Asia with a Solaire livery, the Sky Solaire.

TV Series Review: Hannibal

The story about Hannibal Lecter had been a fascinating story since it was first introduced through the movie Silence of the Lambs.  The AXN series, Hannibal perhaps had brought a whole new thrill to the already great story.  Season 2 finale showed a shocking ending to Hannibal and opens up a lot of question for the upcoming Season 3 and I am sure there will be a next season for this.

I am very picky when watching TV series.  I like those that can stimulate the viewers mind and let them think on what will happen as each episode ends.  Orphan Black is a series which had captured my attention and made me realize a lot of things.  It is a series where you can give a general question, “What if these things are actually happening in real life?”

We are  all stunned by 300, when it first came out in 2007.  The film, although highly fictionalized retelling of the Battle of Thermopylae during the Persian War was received with positive review and was well watched and enjoyed.  After 7 years, the film was followed by 300: Rise of An Empire.  I first though that it was a sequel but I was proven wrong.

When someone says, "47 Ronin," it could immediately turn to refer to the new movie starring Keanu Reeves where he is portraying as an estranged Samurai or half-breed with some sort of power and avenging the death of their Lord together with Oishi.  However, the truth is that 47 Ronin refers to forty-seven rougue samurais who avenged the death of Lord Asano during the 14th day of the 12th month of the 15th year of Genroku.  

The trailer and everything which was circulated online and shown in movie houses shows an epic story of grandeur.  It shows a witch which seems to have served as the main tool for the fall of the Asano clan.  Let us examine however in this movie review the movie against the historical facts of the 47 Ronin.

The Pinoy indie film industry seems to be hitting a new target hit with Agot Isidro and TJ Trinidad's "Mga Anino ng Kahapon (Shadows of the Past)."  The film is one of the finalists to the 2013 Metro Manila Film Festival's New Wave Category and will be shown from December 18-24, 2013 in Glorietta 4 and SM Megamall cinemas.


The film is a documentary of sorts which highlights common misconceptions about Schizophrenia, a disease were those affected will usually hallucinate and have delusions.  The film is co-produced by Janssen, a division of Johnson & Johnson and aims to raise public awareness on the sickness.

It was another movie day at SM Cinema, this time at Cinema 6 of SM Megamall.  The movie is entitled "The Ouija Experiment."  The title itself made me realized that it was a horror movie which would be creepy and would drive shiver into my bones.  Thus, together with Dee Jocson, Mico Villarica and Haruhi Misaki we watched the movie.
