    Leonor Will Never Die

    ★★½

    Growing up as a Filipino and a lover of films, I didn't really like Filipino films; particularly the mainstream ones. I'm not saying this to appear contrarian; it's just that Filipino films are most of the time conformists, rely heavily on tired tropes, and are filled with cliches. There's even a part of me that felt insulted because the Filipino movie industry is aware of these problems, but they chose to ignore them because they knew the masses would still…

    ★★

    I'm frustrated that I didn't enjoy this as much as the majority. This movie has elements that would make me enjoy a thriller: Scorsese, De Niro, and some Hitchcock zest. Yet I found this mostly unbearable. I'm not the type of watcher that nitpicks and finds plot conveniences as plot holes, but this movie stretched my suspension of disbelief too thin. No smart decision was made throughout this movie, and the characters are annoying and hard to root for. Seriously,…

    Best pairs in cinema coming together here: Scorsese and Schoonmaker, Paul Newman and suaveness, and Tom Cruise and his smug punchable grin

    I give up. This movie drained my energy, my life force, my will to breathe; I just want to sleep for a week.

    Is it weird that I'm proud at Disney for not putting a CGI Chadwick Boseman cameo? My bar is set really low for the mouse that I'm actually relieved when they did something bare minimum.

    Hell House LLC

    ★★★½

    Just a very effective found footage film that knows how to move the camera or set up scenes that build enough tension. Watched this on 360p for maximum experience.

    Bocchi the Rock!

    ★★★★

    I usually immediately catch up on anime sleeper hits every season whenever positive word of mouth gets around, but I avoided this anime despite all the rave and hype. Mainly because this falls under CGDCT or cute girls doing cute things. I don't hate this subgenre, I'm just not a fan, and I see them as equally entertaining as watching cat videos.

    But I finally gave in today, and I also finished this today, which is unusual since my sleep…
