• A Lifetime Treasure

    Jan 9, 2020

  • Abduction

    Jul 3, 2020

    A B-movie with some bite, ‘Maria’ stumbles with its by-the-numbers story and unnecessary scenes of torture but is saved by some cool fight scenes and a fierce lead performance from Cristine Reyes.

  • My Hero Academia: Heroes Rising

    Aug 21, 2020

  • Parasite

    Jul 12, 2019
