Baywatch 2017 (R-16)


Matt Brody(Efron) is a former Olympic swimmer who wants to join an elite team of lifeguards led by the hulking Mitch Buchannon(Johnson). Brody thinks he's a shoo-in, but his casual attitude starts to instantly rub Mitch the wrong way. When drugs and a shady resort owner pose a threat to the bay, Mitch and Matt must put their differences aside to spring into action and save the day. -WWW

The trailer has been around for quite sometime now and I'm glad that even if I'm a fan of the TV Series, the trailer still made me pretty excited to see how they reimagined things and if it could at least be at par with the TV series that lifted up the careers of many people.

Baywatch 2017 did not live up to my expectations, based on the trailer.  Thankfully,  even if there are many incredible and funny parts, there are some nuggets of wisdom here and there.  

I like the flow of the story(besides being a remake, the story is not new, but is very, very relevant) and the action scenes.

There is nothing much more I can say, but sit back, relax and have a barrel of laughs.  Enjoy the movie.  Don't think too much.  It was not written to be that way.

Even if I'm a tad disappointed, I did enjoy and I will watch the sequel.  Yes, there is at least one.

For technical and other aspects, I've chosen these reviews:

The Giver (2014)

From the NET:


The haunting story of THE GIVER centers on Jonas, a young man who lives in a seemingly ideal, if colorless, world of conformity and contentment. Yet as he begins to spend time with The Giver, who is the sole keeper of all the community's memories, Jonas quickly begins to discover the dark and deadly truths of his community's secret past. With this newfound power of knowledge, he realizes that the stakes are higher than imagined - a matter of life and death for himself and those he loves most. At extreme odds, Jonas knows that he must escape their world to protect them all - a challenge that no one has ever succeeded at before.

J.K .Rowling's Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (a Harry Potter Prequel) First of a Trilogy

From The Wrap.Com
I'm at a loss for words.  That's strange because I am usually verbose.  I was dumbfounded by the special effects and the story. I love the cliff hanger and I can't wait for the second installment. I honestly haven't read the book, so I cannot say if I like the movie better or not.  All I know is that I love it!  I'll try to think of comments and I would put them beside the name of each cast member.
I want to congratulate the whole team, most especially James Newton Howard for the background music that bring out all types of emotions; Philippe Rousselot for the awesome cinematography; Mark Day for the almost seamless, if not seamless editing and David Yates for a great directorial "job".

Trip Ubusan (The Lolas vs. Zombies) Graded A ---2017 (Parental Guidance)

Archie Adamos,  Jhayvot Galang, Arthur Solinap, Lovely Abella, Angelika Dela Cruz, Taki Saito, Kenneth Medrano, Ryzza Mae Dizon, Miggy Tolentino, Shaira Mae Dela Cruz, Jose Manalo, Wally Bayola, Paolo Ballesteros and Caprice CayetanoMark A. Reyes V is a very versatile director.  He is able to direct movies, TV Shows, TV series or whatever else without being stuck in one genre.  
Trip Ubusan is supposed to be a parody or a spoof of TRAIN TO BUSAN,  but like some of the critics or reviewers described, it's more than that.
Of course, I had to see it for myself.  Would I have a different opinion or would I agree with them?  
After watching it I agree with them.
The movie is not just about laughs or scary zombies, it's about family, friendship, unity, bravery, not being judgmental and being able to surpass all odds no matter what.
It's also a movie that could take one's blues away.  
Oh, smaller kids might not understand the makeup/prosthetics, so please be there for them and if…
