Alita: Battle Angel movie review - A new hero arises!

It has been quite some time since I had last written a movie review... I can't even remember the last review I made, but all thanks to this movie Alita: Battle Angel that has sparked my desire to once again write this movie review.

Amidst the slew of superhero movies that has been killing the box office, for the past few years, well most superhero movies that is, from DC to Marvel, 2019 seems like another year for the slaying of superhero movies, as DC and Marvel roll out their respective line-ups with the likes of Shazam, Captain Marvel, Avengers: Endgame, 2019 looks to be a very promising year indeed.  But it all has to start somewhere, alas Alita: Battle Angel.

Filled with action, humour and heart, Joe Cornish’s “The Kid Who Would Be King” is a thrilling adventure for the young and the young at heart.  Based on one of the most famous myths of all time, THE KID WHO WOULD BE KING approaches the legend of King Arthur and his knights in a completely new way, bringing it into the modern world and making it relevant for contemporary audiences.

The heart of the film is based on the chivalric code that the wizard Merlin teaches young Arthur in the legend.  This is the set of laws that King Arthur’s knights abided by, which dictated earnest moral behavior – honoring the people you love, persevering, refraining from offense and telling the truth.  In the film, Cornish takes that moral code and applies it to modern kids, to see what its value is in today’s world.

Finding a diamond in the rough: Tips in purchasing pre-owned homes

Donny Pangilinan Charms the Cast and Director of Mary Poppins Returns

The actor-VJ-singer attended the film’s LA junket and world premiere

At the world premiere of Mary Poppins Returns in Los Angeles, Donny Pangilinan alongside his mom, Maricel, and sister and vlogger, Hannah, met the cast and director of Mary Poppins Returns. “It was surreal walking the red carpet and witnessing everything. Still can’t believe I was able to interview the people behind this wonderful film,” Donny shared.

Breaking Down the Nike Adapt BB

Getting the right fit from a performance shoe is both personal and complicated. Consider basketball: Over the course of a basketball game, the foot can expand almost a half-size during play. A level of fit that feels comfortable at one point might feel constrictive just 24 minutes later. Because the needs of the foot change at any given time based on the sport, its duration and on specific movements, like a slashing cut to the basket, "perfect fit" is a floating target.

The effort to refine fit has yielded a number of innovative platforms through Nike’s history – Huarache, Flywire and Flyknit, to name a few. Perhaps none was more critical to advancing custom fit than the 2016 introduction of the Nike HyperAdapt 1.0, the first Nike multipurpose performance shoe to feature power lacing.

5 things to do with unwanted Holiday gifts

It’s happened to everyone at least once: You eagerly open a Christmas present only to be silently disappointed because the item is something you cannot use, is too small or too big for you, or you simply do not like what was given to you as a gift. Proper etiquette dictates you say thanks and keep the gift but with the limited living space we all have, we often have no choice but to find ways on how to put unwanted gifts to good use.

Introducing the Nike Adpat BB - Power shoe-lacing

Michael Donaghu, Nike’s VP of Innovation, explains how the future of fit lets Nike make real the decades-old dream: a custom shoe for everyone (yes, even you).

“DRAGON BALL SUPER: BROLY” opens January 30 exclusive in SM Cinemas nationwide

The most anticipated and latest in the anime action Dragon Ball franchise starts January 30  as “Dragon Ball Super: Broly” opens exclusively in SM Cinemas. 

“Dragon Ball Super: Broly” is a new legend penned by Dragon Ball creator Akira Toriyama, the first film in the new Super series, and the 20th anniversary film. Because of this bounty of importance, the production style of this film can best be summed up in Director Nagamine’s words: “If Goku has undergone an upgrade, then the visuals must be upgraded as well.” If Goku will always love to fight and become stronger, we need to think outside the box and create a contemporary, high quality Dragon Ball worthy of him. In other words, the stronger Goku gets, the harder we must work to express that evolution. The evolution displayed in Dragon Ball Super: Broly is not just a memorial to over 30 years of legendary titles, but also a challenge to depart from the films that came before it.
