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.
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.

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!
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 .
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.
