Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice Review – The good, the bad and the ugly

By the time I sat down to write this, I’ve actually seen BVS twice in a week. Yup, you probably think I’m a masochist and I don’t blame you. But hey, it’s really out of solidarity with my dear hubby that I saw it again a second time, as we weren’t allowed to bring guests …

February Viewing Recap + What I’m looking forward to in March

Well, one thing for sure, I'm REALLY glad award season is over. I've posted my thoughts on the Oscars and all, but to be honest with you, it kinda felt like a chore. I don't even know if I want to do it next year, I might skip blogging about award season next year, that'll …

FlixChatter Review: The Man from U.N.C.L.E (2015)

I saw this at a very early press screening three weeks ago but there was an embargo to even tweet about it. By now I could barely remember much about Guy Ritchie's movie, but if I were to describe it in one word, it'd be frothy. Just like Mission Impossible, this movie is based on a 1960s TV …

Everybody’s Chattin + Question of the week: Supporting cast you wish got the leading role

I can hardly believe half of the year's already come and gone! It's been a rather odd month for me, but in terms of movie watching, it's rather uneventful. I sure hope the later part of 2015 have better films in store for us... and looking at Katy's list of highly-anticipated movies for the rest of …

Hello everyone! To those who celebrated Father's Day on Sunday, I hope you had an excellent time with your family.

Musings on Man of Steel: What works and what doesn’t in the latest Superman reboot

Oh boy, where do I begin... Some films are tough to review and I find this one to be particularly so because I feel like I've invested myself in this movie even long before I saw it. It's strange I know, and perhaps I shouldn't have been sooo incredibly pumped but if you've read my …

Superman: A History and a New Hope

Yet another SUPER post on my favorite superhero!

Special thanks to Terrence for taking part on the Man Of Steel Countdown festivities. I love this post and especially his closing statement…

Is Man of Steel the beginning of a new era for Superman? I think so. It brings in a new era and with it a new hope. That is, afterall, what the “S” symbol stands for!

A long time ago, in a galaxy far far away, a mother and father on a doomed planet called Krypton sent their one and only son, Kal-el, on a crash course to Earth in an attempt to save him from the impending doom of their homeworld. With the similar appearance of the inhabitants of Earth, young Kal-el differed in a very remarkable way from those who took him in as one of their own: powered by the rays of the sun, Kal-el (now living under the pseudonym “Clark Kent”) began to exhibit and harness powers of a super nature. Under the direction and guidance of his adopted parents, Clark learned that with great power comes great responsibility and as he grew he quickly learned just what that lesson would mean for him in his futuremanofsteelquote

Not only would Clark (soon to be known to the world as Superman) have a…

In just twenty four days (well 21 days for me :D), THE most anticipated movie of the year will arrive in theaters. There have been few movie events in the past decade, but for me, THIS would count as the one of the biggest one to date. In preparation for Man of Steel, I'll be …
