Why Watching Comedy Sitcoms Has Become My Most Unproductive Task

I’m a slacker. While I rejoice in having to post more than ten blog posts in the past month, I have not earned a single penny out of it. It has become a hobby, but I’m hoping that I could at least garner more traffic and follows in the future.

My Goyo Realizations, a ‘Goyo: Ang Batang Heneral’ Film Review

The film Goyo has been all the buzz since it was shown. Just like its predecessor, Heneral Luna, social media was of great help to improve its popularity.

You should watch it. I was really excited to watch Citizen Jake because first of all, one of my favorite directors from what I believe the Golden age of the Philippine cinema is … Continue reading ‘Citizen Jake’ Film Review: On Activism, Pessimism, and the Corleones
