The Art of Racing in the Rain

Pets. I have never had pets of my own. I do not think that I am a pet person, to be honest. I have always wanted one, but it is too big a commitment for me that I never got around to having one. I have never enjoyed movies that featured animals but when I saw the trailer for the movie The Art of Racing in the Rain, I felt that it was something I would want to see. When my sister mentioned that she had seen the movie the night before and that she had cried so bad I decided to check out the schedules so I could see it too.

The Titan Games

People who know me from the time when I was a young girl would know that I am not the healthiest person out there. I would love to be the girl who does sports and is physically fit and active, but my body is just not built for it. I’ve tried many times to ignore and overcome this “weakness”, but my body has told me many times over that it is the boss and I cannot make it do things beyond what it can accomplish. Despite that, I still dream that one day I can. One of those dreams? Getting on a truly physical competition like Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s The Titan Games.

Just to be clear, I am a person with many health issues. It will take a village (so to speak) to get me in shape for anything as grueling as this but in my head, if I can and if my health permits, I would love to try The Titan Games. I just love watching this show and seeing people from all walks of life try it out. Seeing them overcome these insane obstacles makes me wish that I can do them too. When DJ says “Titan Strong” — wow, I want to be that. I do not know how but I want that.

Netflix Picks: Warrior Nun

You are dead. Then you are alive again, waking to some sort of monster murdering the only other person in the room with you. You make a run for it and are surprised that you can because you were previously paralyzed. Not only that, you begin seeing things that you normally would not see and can do things that are impossible to do. What happens next? That is what the Netflix series Warrior Nun is about.

Series Review: What's Wrong with Secretary Kim

I have been going through some of the Korean TV series available via streaming as per my cousin’s recommendations. With her prodding and because I had finished and enjoyed another one of the other shows of the female lead, I decided to hunker down and watch the show What’s Wrong with Secretary Kim on Viu.

Movie Review: Code 8

Stephen Amell is one of the male TV celebrities that I admire and follow online. He and his cousin Robbie Amell (husband of another TV favorite, Italia Ricci) recently made a movie that was released online called Code 8. It is an action/sci-fi movie set in a world where there are people born with powers, but this does not necessarily mean that life is better for them with it.

Movie Review: Endings Beginnings

During the lockdown, I heard about this movie called Endings Beginnings that featured a love triangle composed of Shailene Woodley, Jamie Dornan, and Sebastian Stan. On the merit of having those two handsome male leads alone, I decided to purchase it online and watch it. 

The story revolves around Daphne (Woodley), who just broke up with her boyfriend (played by, to my delight, Matthew Gray Gubler from Criminal Minds). She just moved into her sister’s guesthouse and meets two handsome guys at a party who happen to show interest in her. These two guys, coincidentally, are friends and opposites of each other:  Frank (Stan) is your typical bad boy, while Jack is the kind of guy you settle down with and bring over to meet your family because he just checks all the right boxes (so to speak).

Netflix Picks: Memories of the Alhambra

Korean actor/heartthrob Hyun Bin is all over social media these days because of his product endorsements for a local phone network and a local clothing line. This is all thanks to a renewed fascination with the guy because of the popularity of his recent TV series Crash Landing on You, which was on the top 10 list of Netflix Philippines for quite some time.

I say renewed fascination because Hyun Bin already had another series that became popular in the country in the past: My Lovely Sam Soon (where he was the male lead and had Daniel Henney as a co-star). I must admit, my attention was not on Hyun Bin back then, but Crash Landing on You made me pay attention to him now. Because of that, I decided to check out another one of his TV shows on Netflix, Memories of the Alhambra.

Movie Review: Bloodshot

One of the movies that I saw during the Enhanced Community Quarantine was the action film Bloodshot starring Vin Diesel, Eiza Gonzalez, Guy Pearce, and Sam Heughan. It is about a Marine who was killed in action and resurrected with modern technology to become an enhanced super-soldier.

Series Review: A World of Married Couple

The World of Married Couple is a Korean drama that I watched while I was on a trial period for the streaming service Viu. It tells the story of, obviously, a married couple as they go through their relationship, part ways, and deal with the consequences of the fallout of their marriage.
