Not again. 2016 is really the worst year ever now. I’m posting three R.I.P. posts in a row. We just lost the legendary Debbie Reynolds a day after her daughter Carrie died. It’s just sad that she passed away right after her daughter’s death. Maybe she just wanted to join him (her son Todd mentioned it according to the reports). Words can’t describe how sad and devastating this news is. Debbie Reynolds was one of the remaining Hollywood royalties. She was known for her iconic role on Singin’ in the Rain, one of my favorite musical films of all time. She was so great there and she can sing, dance and act. Plus, before I slept last night, I was watching Oprah’s interview with Debbie and Carrie and it was just heartwarming to see them together. Now, they’re both gone. I don’t know how to express my sadness and grief regarding the deaths of Debbie and Carrie. It’s just so devastating.
May you rest in peace, Ms. Reynolds together with your daughter Carrie. My heart goes to Billie Lourd.
2016 is officially the worst year ever. We just lost our beloved Princess Leia. Like the rest of the galaxy and millions of Star Wars fans around the world, I’m sad and devastated about the news of Carrie Fisher’s death. Besides her immortalized role of Princess Leia, I will also miss her wit on her interviews. I always love to watch her interviews and it never fails to make me laugh. She’s simply one of the funniest women ever. I have no words to say about this because it’s just so devastating. I just want to thank her for the autograph photo. I will treasure it.
Condolence to Debbie Reynolds, Billie Lourd and the rest of her family. We will miss you so much. May the Force be with you always.
I want to pay tribute to the late George Michael, one of the most awesome singers of all time. I was shocked and sad when I learned about his death on Christmas Day which also turned out to be his Last Christmas. I love some of his songs (including the ones from Wham!). He’s such a legend. We will miss you.

Merry Christmas, everyone! Have a happy holiday. Be thankful for every gift that you will receive even though it’s just a shirt which is a sign that they’re too lazy to think about what they are going to give to you. But, anyways, the most important is the spirit of Christmas. So, once again, Merry Christmas!
Also, get well soon to Carrie Fisher. May the Force be with you.

It’s currently the awards season in Hollywood. It’s the season where films that want to receive Oscar nominations will have a limited release in cinemas this December for eligibility then they will go wide in January. It’s also the season where you will see a lot of FYC campaigns and films that were shot earlier this year just in time for the season. Now, let’s talk about it.

I watched this film six days ago. I decided to finally make a review of the film which now turns out to be my favorite Star Wars movie (I mean second to “A New Hope”). But, anyway, I enjoyed this film. It was awesome. Now, I’m going to do a breakdown of my review of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. This review will contain SPOILERS.

One of the most controversial issues right now is Pres. Rodrigo Duterte’s war against drugs campaign. It’s a controversial issue not just here in the Philippines but also around the world. The campaign has met criticisms from human rights groups as well as the United Nations and U.S. president Barack Obama. Now, here’s my take about this hot issue in which I’m going to talk about the pros and cons of the campaign from my perspective as an ordinary Filipino citizen.

This is a 3-in-1 post in which I’m going to talk about three topics. The photo above explains the first topic. The second and third ones are pop culture-related. The title of this post is a clue about what you’re about to read.

The week-long celebration of Cinema Rehiyon 8 held at my university, De La Salle University-Dasmarinas, has ended. But, I’m not going to talk about the festival. I’m going to share a story about ushering for a day and some of the films that I’ve seen during the festival. Plus, seeing a legendary director in person!
