Reading Time: 4 minutes

How are you doing this EECQ, Bingers? Are you and your family staying healthy? Please say yes. We are all stuck at home during the enhanced lockdown to flatten the COVID-19 curve in the Philippines. Last announcement was it will be extended up to April 30th as opposed to the original plan of April 14. That means we still have a lot of time in our hands. Of course, we can do productive things like growing our mini garden, keeping our body in check with home workouts, or just by streaming movies and series on Netflix! About the last part, I am sure you too are overwhelmed with titles to choose from. So, let me help you with that. Here are my 5 top picks for series to catch on Netflix during the Extreme Enhanced Community Quarantine.

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Bingers, are you also looking forward to the 2020 live adaptation of Walt Disney’s Mulan? I do! In fact, Mulan is my most favorite Disney movie EVER! I watched it countless times and I know the songs by heart! So, when I learned that the live-adaptation will not include the songs that we loved, I was heartbroken. I changed my mind, however, when I saw the trailer because it made sense that they did not include the songs. That does not mean that we are not going to hear them. Disney Philippines collaborated with Moira Dela Torre, the most streamed Filipino artist, for a localized version of Reflection from Mulan. We were at the launch and heard it firsthand. Read for more details.

REVIEW: Find Your Adventure in Onward

Reading Time: 3 minutes Do you still have the magic, Bingers? In the latest movie from Disney and Pixar, Onward, we’ll realize that we still got the magic, it’s just that no one bothers to do it anymore when there is a much more convenient way. And because of that, we have been so gotten used to the familiar and what’s right in front of us. In the world of Onward where the centaurs, pixies, and elves are no longer how we used to know them, lies an unexpected treasure waiting to be uncovered. We joined the adventure of the Lightfoot brothers and found ourselves falling off our seats from laughing one second and sobbing after. Read more about REVIEW: Find Your Adventure in Onward

REVIEW: Descend Into Madness in The Invisible Man

Reading Time: 2 minutesBingers, answer this: would you rather fear what you can see or fear something that you can’t? Personally, I’d rather see something that I am going to be scared of. With that, at least I know how it looks like and I’ll know whether I still have my sanity in check. You might be wondering why I asked you that. Well, in United International Pictures and Blumhouse’ The Invisible Man, we will witness the descent of a victim into madness. Bingers, it is going to be a bold statement but The Invisible Man is easily one of my favorite among the recent horror movies. Wanna know why? Find out in our review!

REVIEW: Sonic The Hedgehog Breaks The Video Game Curse

Reading Time: 3 minutesLet’s backtrack a little, Bingers. Can you name a videogame turned movie that was a success, or at least fun to watch? Hardly, right? On top of my head was Detective Pikachu but it is debatable because it was inspired by a Pokemon game. The old Mortal Kombat and Mario movies were cringe-worthy that I just decided to throw them at the back of my mind. The recent Assassin’s Creed was so-so. It seems like there really is a curse to video games turned movies, that they are always bound to fail. To be honest, this is not surprising because of the difference in medium. Last weekend, however, I was greatly surprised with Sonic The Hedgehog! To me, it broke the video game curse. Wanna know why? Read our review, Bingers .

REVIEW: Little Women Resonates and Warms The Heart

Reading Time: 3 minutesThis is the year of women. On the first quarter of 2020 alone, moviegoers are up for films starring powerful women. Starting with Birds of Prey, which was a great success for an all-female superhero group, and on March we’ll have the female-led Black Widow. But not every women have to wield a sword to show power. In Columbia Pictures’ Little Women, we’ll see that different types of women can make an impact as long as they put their heart and their soul into it. Bingers, here is our review of Greta Gerwig’s adaptation of the beloved novel by LA Alcott, Little Women.

REVIEW: Birds of Prey - It's A Man's World No More

Reading Time: 4 minutes

This is a man’s world no more. Warner Bros. Pictures and DC scream women power in Birds of Prey and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn! Last Saturday, February 1, Warner Bros. Pictures invited us to the special screening of Birds of Prey at the IMAX Theatre in SM Megamall! Before the usual screening, the studio surprised us with several treats such as the Pink Pudding from M Bakery. This new treat is a mix of their classic Banana Pudding and a Confetti Cake. The banana-dessert-lover in me approves. Now that we’re powered up with a dessert, the night was hyped even more with a dance number to the soundtrack of the movie from Warner Music Philippines. The most exciting surprise that night, however, was the 6-minute preview for the upcoming Christopher Nolan film, Tenet. I barely grasped what was happening but it was too intense, I just know I am in! And now on to the main show. Bingers, here is our review of Birds of Prey: The Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn.

REVIEW: Richard Jewell Is More Than Just a Man's Story

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Can you imagine the power of media? It’s so powerful it can change people’s mindset over certain things. When used wrong, this power can be used to ruin a person. Yes, we are living in this situation now but even before, this has happened. That’s what was explored in Clint Eastwood’s latest film, Richard Jewell. Richard Jewell is a biopic and a study on the events that changed the life of the man. This true to life movie reflected the terrifying truth about the power of media and how it can turn the public’s perception of a man from hero to villain in a heartbeat. Packed with a strong narrative and impeccable performances, Bingers, here is our take on Warner Bros. Pictures Richard Jewell.
