Just watched Avengers Infinity War. Lots of intense action and drama. But it's not something that will make you feel good at the end just like most mainstream superhero movies.

Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom - Pinanood ko lang kasi walang masyadong pila. Classic formula of men being chased around by monsters, exciting enough but nothing new. There is the usual speech/dialogue of man playing God and questioning the validity of such acts, but not really compelling. Overall good movie. Not Great, pero hindi naman mediocre.

 

Kaya nung gabi ay pinanood ko iyong Netflix's Cargo. Zombie movie but not on an epic scale due to its low budget(which I learned after watching) but the does create its own tension and conflicts. There is one moment where I was moved enough. Good movie to occupy some of your time.

Finally watched M:I Fallout. I think this one is better than GP. Nandiyan pa din iyong classic formula ng hindi mo alam kung sino ang alin na pati si Ethan Hunt ay pagdududahan mo na. Sa stunts naman ay lalawit na talaga ang ngalangala mo sa lula. May vehicle chase ulit. Story was nice and complex but a bit daunting and lengthy, as expected from a spy move. 

 

No cliffhangers, or maybe there is but I wanted to leave the cinema as soon as the credits rolled.

Escape plan 2

Pretty bad compared to the first one. The story line looms from being in the present time to being a star wars movie.. And the story didnt revolve with Sylvester Stallone anymore much like the movie "Killing Gunther" advertised with arnold in the movie but came out like it was just a camio

Bohemian Rhapsody is actually good. Don't believe what movie review sites tell you. The movie is awesome. Perhaps some parts are embellished for drama, but dramatic is what Freddie is all about. Good sized line queued for a weekday screening, ages range from late teens to mighty dinosaurs. So goes to prove that Queens' legacy is established.

 

Great job by the main actor, such command on a rock n roll persona but not so much of the excesses, the only excess here is music, for which I cannot get enough of. Also, that guy playing Brian May is so convincing, that low key but respectable presence is there. Roger does a lot of bickering with Freddie, which was not really a secret and Deacon is Deacon, you know, the guy who plays bass.

 

 

Now be a fanboy/girl/gay, whatever you are, and treat yourself to some Queen. The final sequence will have you singing along involuntarily.

PARASITE (2019)

I have to say that there should be a Filipino remake of this masterpiece. I know it can't be as good but I find the themes of this movie very very relevant in PH setting!

The movie follows an impoverished family of 4 attempt to scam a rich family by getting each of them hired as special skilled workers. The plan involves forgery of credentials, framing the driver and housekeeper to steal their job, and all the while pretending that they are all not related to each other. Things go as planned at first largely thanks to the gullibility of the Rich family, but things go awfully wrong when they find out that the house is hiding a secret that quickly changes this movie from black comedy, to suspense, to just plain tragedy.

Now what I particularly liked about this is how the rich and the poor are portrayed. Because class divide is never really black and white where in Rich people = Oppressor. Poor People = oppressed. The rich people here are never WILLING OPPRESSORS. They are spoiled, ignorant, and completely unsympathetic to the plight of those beneath them in the social class ladder, but it does not mean they are scoundrels. They simply can afford to not give a s@%t because they won the social status lottery. The poor on the other hand are not white-washed. Not only because they are portrayed as scammers. But more because it shows the reality that sometimes the poor oppress the fellow poor instead of helping each other. The actions of the Kims (the poor family) negatively effect not so much the rich family they are scamming but their fellow poor whose jobs they steal.

The message of the movie is that People are not really the problem. The system is! If you are born privileged, you are allowed to amass more than what you really need and can exploit the working class without moral repercussions. If you are poor, you have to resort to doing immoral things and occasionally fight your fellow poor to survive. The movie though does not condone it. It is simply saying that our social structure and our culture get us to act that way. It is a commentary on modern capitalism. When you look at your iPhone you appreciate how cool Apple products are, but you do not really give a rats ass about the factory workers in China working below human standard conditions to assemble your gadget. And because the poor instead of helping each other, they pull each other down, none of them gets to climb up the social ladder.

The best part was the Rain. It shows how contrasting the two families deal with the heavy rain where one considers it a blessing, but for the other one they have to deal with all the flood destroying their homes. How many times have you thanked class and work suspensions during storm seasons in Manila, but not knowing those who live in the slums will have to deal with the flood and their children will probably get leptospirosis? Not much right? Because the rain is about bed weather.
