Best and Worst of 2015



Heneral Luna-for making people interested in our history. There have even been debates on this movie as well as about our heroes. Imagine that. To think, it was written off as a flop when it first screed. But thanks to word-of-mouth and a strong clamor from internet fans, it went on to become one of the biggest films of the year!
 Honorable mentions: Mad Max:Fury Road, Honor Thy Father, Inside Out (sob! hindi naman pambata 'to, e!)


My Bebe Love-What a waste of the AlDub love team. Instead of focusing on the true reason audiences came to watch this movie, the story revolved around Vic Sotto and Ai Ai del as Alas. I f only the writers had made it novel and witty. But no, the plot was so thin, it flew out the window.
Also awful: My fb friend nominated the Maria Ozawa-Cesar Montano movie "Nilalang" and "Fifty shades of Grey"was just trash that wanted to be art.



Fresh off the boat- It's about an Asian-American family set in the 1990's. It's even funnier when
I imagine them to be like my tita Chuchie's family growing up in America. Everyone in the cast is funny but Constance Wu as the tiger mom steals the show.
Sorry I don't watch a lot of dramas save for Game of Thrones, so my honorable mentions only include Galavant, (reminds me of Mel Brooks' Robin Hood: Men in tights) Last man on earth, and Inside Amy Schumer. I was also mesmerized by Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell but the ending was meh


Half Worlds--HBO Asia wanted to produce original content about Asian horror and went to Indonesia. The result is a stylish series with great visuals and animation but zero appeal. The story is so boring, illogical and frustrating. The lead actors are dull. They should have made Trese instead.
Also awful: Marimar (Megan Young cannot act. Plus they changed so much of the story, it's unrecognizable...they even made her real name "Bela" ! Hello, read the title of the show!)



 The Dwellers by Eliza Victoria--hypnotic and gripping, even the backstory had me wishing for more! The premise is really magical: 2 cousins have the power to live in other people's bodies. They escape from their hacienda to take over the life of two brothers when they find a dead body in the basement.
Notable: Manix Abrera's Hubkong Sandatahan ng kahaggardan. It's about life in the news media but I can't believe how even non-meida people can relate to it. I simply ascribe it to Manix magic!


Well, not exactly the worst, but a real disappointment was "Janus Silang at ang Tiyanak ng Tabon-comic book"
I was so looking forward to reading this because I missed the text version. It was probably so good they released it as a comic book, too. But I found the story too contrived. There was just one twist too many and too many unresolved plot lines. I also found the artwork kinda awkward, especially when it came to proportions of the anatomy of the humans.


Disclaimer: I didn't listen to a lot of new songs this year as I just kept playing the songs on my ipod.
So while everyone was raving about Justin Bieber's "Sorry" or Adele's "Hello", my favorite song has to be "Ellie Goulding's "Love me like you do" It's probably the best thing to come out of that movie "50 shades of grey"


Wiki me by Julian Trono. This song had me cursing at my tv screen when I heard and read the lyrics. I mean, it doesn't help that the singer is nasal and annoying, but who wrote that damn song?!

"We go all night or we can go to dinner
We go to movie or we can be a singer"

Di ba? T@#$%*!!! Nakakabobo!!!
