This 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.
Growing up, the first Jumanji movie was my go-to movie. There wasn’t a weekend that I did not watch it on our VHS. I mean, what is there not to love about it? We have Robin Williams, lions, and a whole new world to explore. There is that special sense of adventure that tickled my fancy. So, when the soft reboot of the movie came out about a decade later, I was a bit skeptical. Jumanji starring Dwayne Johnson and Jack Black? That’s something, right? But boy it did not disappoint and it left me in stitches. The good thing is a sequel to that comes out this year, continuing in on the premise of Jumanji being a broken video game. Was it funny? Bingers, you’d want to read til the end of our review because the movie surprised me with some of its elements!
We all have our special high school memories. It is during this period when we try to make memories between our childhood and adulthood, given that it is the last stage before we head into college. This is the time when kings and queens of the batch reigned and the misfits were preyed upon. As Mean Girls once put it, it was a jungle. So, what is up with all these talks about high school? Well, it is the setting for the first Netflix-licensed Filipino film, Dead Kids. And it was one crazy, crazy film! Bingers, we were at the premier of Mikhail Red’s Dead Kids and I must say, it is something not to miss!
What do you know about cars? How well do you know your Mustangs or your Maserati? If not much, well hard same! But would you believe me if I say that you don’t have to be car-savvy to enjoy 20th Century Fox’s Ford v Ferrari! Yes, this film by James Mangold starring Christian Bale and Matt Damon will bring us deeper into their characters while taking us along for a ride! Bingers, here is my review of Ford v Ferrari.
Bingers, we all have our favorite Netflix film. For me, it’s The King starring Timothy Chalamet. It’s so good it got me surprised that it didn’t get a wide release. As it turns out, it is becoming the trend for big movies to head straight to streaming sites such as Netflix! Now, at the 15th Cinema One Originals Film Festival, Netflix will be debuting two original films: The Two Popes and Dead Kids.
