Terrific Pacific

by on Sep.25, 2017, under Film & TV, Geeky

Pacific Rim was a sleeper hit of 2013, and its long-awaited sequel is finally coming in March 2018. My only major complaint is that Charlie Hunnam is nowhere to be found (due to scheduling conflicts), but I’ll make do with the also-gorgeous Scott Eastwood. John Boyega’s also cool, as proven in Star Wars, and Rinko Kikuchi’s returning, to boot.

Meanwhile, please, producers. Someone get the right to Voltes V and Daimos. A Godzilla crossover would also not be frowned upon.

The Kingsmen may have to wait.

by on Sep.20, 2017, under Film & TV, Geeky

Kingsman: The Golden Circle finally opens today in the Philippines (along with the UK and other territories). Unfortunately, due to conflicting schedules, I might be able to watch it towards the end of next week. Bummer. Still, we may have some time tonight before we fly out for a vacay. We’ll see.

But regardless, Taron Egerton deserves all my patience. If not tonight, then I will definitely get to see you next week, babe.

In the meantime, here’s the second trailer to tide me (and anyone else) over.

Update: so we did manage to find time early Wednesday evening to watch it. Will post a review next time as there’s a lot going on as we prep for travel.

Shape of Thrones

Because, like the creators of this Star Wars gem, some people really just have a whoe lot of free time on their hands.

And thank goodness for that, or else we wouldn’t have this other gem.

Keeping Up With The Vacuous

by on Sep.14, 2017, under Film & TV, Snark

Recently, I got stuck at home and was unable to go to work due to heavy rains. I was quietly having lunch while the two household helpers watched some reruns of Keeping Up With The Kardashians on TV. Our household help, ladies and gentlemen.

I had never watched the Kardashian show in full, but finally hearing it play in the background while I ate lunch made me wonder yet again: WTF is wrong with the public for having kept this show alive for a decade? Alright, Rob Kardashian may have been attractive at one point in time, but not any more. And his sisters? Not only are they not really attractive underneath all the make-up, just average at best, but I have never seen a more vacuous, self-absorbed group of “reality stars” who were (and still are) so tone deaf and out of touch with, well, reality.

Oh, Ruru.

by on Sep.02, 2017, under Film & TV, Queer

Really liking this kid more and more. Thank goodness Ruru Madrid is of legal age, as otherwise I’d feel dirty all over. I mean, I already just had to make excuses for Jon and his aunt Daenerys this past week. Let’s not add to the fantasy guilt.
