In my previous film review, I mentioned how I was surprised by the number of new shows and movies on Netflix. One of those new entries is Sunod (2019), a Filipino horror I wanted to watch during the Metro Manila Film Festival. But there are other shows I also wanted to watch so I created a list which I’m slowly getting through. Finally, I was able to see… Sunod (2019) 1h 40min | Horror Director: Carlo Ledesma It centres on a woman who’s desperate to find the cure to her daughter’s illness. She takes a job at a call centre, only to be haunted by the ghost in it. When trailers for the 45th Metro Manila Film Festival was slowly being released, I saw some great ones and not so much. Then I noticed, there wasn’t a horror genre. MMFF always have at least one horror entry yearly. So, I thought maybe there really isn’t one this year. Suddenly, a trailer dropped on Facebook.

I mentioned before that I have my go-to site for movies in case I’m not interested in what Netflix has to offer. Since the release of Sunod (2019), a Filipino horror I wanted to watch during the Metro Manila Film Festival is now on Netflix, I decided to return. Boy was I surprised by the number of new shows and movies. So, I created a list of the shows and films I wanted to watch. First is Banal, a 2019 Filipino psychological horror movie directed by Peter Abana. The film stars Bianca Umali, Miguel Tanfelix, Andrea Brillantes, Taki and Kim Last.
I’ll be upfront. Shunsuke Daitō, a Japanese actor used to be the apple of my eye. 🙂 So when I heard he was filming “37 Seconds”, I got curious and researched about it. After reading what was available online, I realised I wanted to watch it because of the story and most especially because of the actress. You see Hikari’s debut film features first-time actor Mei Kayama who has cerebral palsy. The film “37 Seconds” gives us a rare, authentic; not to mention, beautiful view into the world of a young woman with cerebral palsy.
Spoiler alert! If you haven’t seen Netflix Original zombie series and don’t want any level of spoilers, then turn back now. But if you don’t mind, well you can stay and read. This is a short roundup as well as my thoughts on Netflix’s Kingdom Season 1 and 2 plus a few expectations for the next season. Again, this is about the Netflix series, okay?
“To All the Boys: P.S. I Still Love You” was released exclusively on Netflix on February 12th. Though I saw the trailers and of course, fans’ posts all over social media, I didn’t jump into it right away like I usually do. The main reason is the contentment I felt after watching “To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before.” To make things simpler, let me share two paragraphs from my review of Netflix’s “To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before.”
