Disney•Pixar's Coco Hits Too Close to Home

Reading Time: 3 minutes

We all loved Disney•Pixar movies for their outstanding storytelling, groundbreaking plots, and incredible animation. Every movie is great on its own.

5 Burning Questions from Stranger Things 2

Reading Time: 4 minutes

Loads of 80’s pop culture references, a small town conspiracy, and awesome story. Netflix definitely hit the jackpot in 2016 with its original series, Stranger Things. It grew a huge fanbase when it came out last year and it was a no-brainer that a sequel is very much warranted. In 2017, the Duffer Brothers brought back the gang and took the audiences to another adventure at the small town of Hawkins.

Netflix PH invited me to be among the very first in the country to enjoy Stranger Things season 2 weeks prior to its release. To say that I am a huge fan of the series is an understatement and to have this privilege was extra special! Upon receiving an access to the episodes, I binge-watched the season in 2 Days. Yes, slow for a nine-episode season but hey, I have a day job! With that said, here are the 5 burning questions that I had after watching Stranger Things 2.

(Beware: spoilers are up ahead. )

Reading Time: 3 minutes

Expectations are high for the 30-year-in-the-making sequel to Ridley Scott’s Blade Runner. The film was highly advanced for its time when it came out making it one of the tent poles of sci-fi films. Surprisingly, despite its smart plot and visually stunning imagery, it did not immediately receive the success it deserves. Unfortunately, it appears that the sequel, Blade Runner 2049, is experiencing the same. I, for one, is a fan of Denis Villeneuve’s work at the sequel, and let me list down some of the reasons why you should see Blade Runner 2049.
