Ladies and gentlemen, it is time for another Alternative Media article! This time, we will discuss three local films that, in my opinion at least, is worth a look for many of our moviegoers out there. After all, I’m sure a lot of you are tired with the way I like to criticize local media […]

Alternative Media (Part 10): Devil

After the box office flop of Lady in the Water and The Last Airbender, there are those who would say that M. Night Shyamalan managed to redeem himself with the film Devil. The film, while somewhat simple and, in some parts at least, more than a little baffling, it shines out with its own themes of coming […]

Alternative Media (Part 9): The Dark Knight – Hacking the Justice System

The Dark Knight, the second film in The Dark Knight trilogy by Christopher Nolan is probably one of my favorite superhero movies.

So, without further ado… Schindler’s List Ah, here’s a good one. A nice, if somewhat depressing film, directed by Steven Spielberg himself and stars Liam […]

Alternative Media (Part 4): Realistic Fantasies

With my last article, I exposed how the Pinoy fantasy genre is degrading the minds of the Filipino people. As already mentioned, I still think there are a few fantaseryes worth looking into from time to time. Encantadia was actually pretty good because of the way it presented fae that were neither bad nor good and were […]

Fatal Fantasy: The Kabobohan Within

In a previous article, I cited that Filipinos seem to be caught in a “fatal fantasy” of their own design. While I pointed out that while the and the government and the media can be blamed for some of this, I can also point out that the people are also partially to be blamed for […]
