Spinster (2020) – Movie Review

Plenty are the films about the comedy of errors that is parenthood and subsequent family life, but what about those whose paths and choices have taken them a different route? Where are the movies about the single folks who, either by choice or by circumstance, don’t get married or have children? If there are stories […]

We Are Little Zombies (2020) – Movie Review

Forget the title; We Are Little Zombies (Japanese title: Wî â Ritoru Zonbîzu) is not a horror movie… at least in the conventional sense. Those expecting sloppy gore effects and masticating brains would do well to find their joy somewhere else, but for your sake, don’t turn that dial just yet. There’s more to this […]

The High Note (2020) – Movie Review

Lucky Grandma (2020) – Movie Review

The (not pejoratively) dry, black-humored Lucky Grandma is quite a charmer, thanks largely to veteran actor Tsai Chin, whose illustrious career has spanned six decades. Once a Bond Girl in You Only Live Twice (and coming back for 2006’s Casino Royale, too!), Lucky Grandma brings her back to the action arena… sort of. Don’t be […]

Boundaries (2018)

In The Meditations of Marcus Aurelius, it is written: “What we do now echoes in eternity.” A modern-day update of that would be a line from Lin-Manuel Miranda’s final soliloquy in Hamilton: “What is a legacy? It’s planting seeds in a garden you never get to see.” We have a choice as to what kind […]

Ktown Cowboys

Before we get any further, I feel like I have to explain the middling rating given to webseries-turned-feature-film Ktown Cowboys right away, instead of getting to plot points and themes. As a person of Filipino descent, I understand the characters’ struggles for self-definition and cultural identity. The film’s intentions are laudable, being about five Korean-American […]
