"Into The Storm" Brings Extreme Weather Conditions Into The Big Screen!

I saw this official movie teaser trailer of the upcoming tornado-disaster movie "Into The Storm," which stars Richard Armitage (Thorin, The Hobbit Trilogy) and Sarah Wayne Callies (The Walking Dead), and it only reminded me of the wrath that was "Yolanda (Haiyan)." The plot may have similarities to the 1996 movie of the same genre, "Twister" but I think, this one will bring more disaster... thanks to improved CGIs over the past two decades!

Pushing the Reset Button and Starting Over Again

My life as a writer in my previous company ended on Valentine's Day of this year. Like a broken-hearted teenager, my relationship with my previous company ended up with not much drama. I had to cut the more than seven years of love-and-hate relationship because I felt that one of us is already getting hurt. Who knew? Maybe the seven-year itch also came to visit? So on Valentine's Day, I made the ultimate decision that will change my life forever.

I Now Officially Hate Twitter! Hmp!

In January of this year, my twitter account for this blog @yatotchronicles was hacked by some Russian hacker. This hacker managed to guess my password, changed the email address of my twitter account that I used with that account, and finally changed the password for himself. For days I was really frustrated. That twitter account was almost as the same age as twitter itself. It has been my twitter username for like more than 7 years. Even though it has only about 160 (or so) true followers, I was happy using it for the past seven years of my social media life.

"The Secret Life of Walter Mitty" Movie Review: A Relatable, Timely Movie

People say that a new year brings new challenges and new opportunities in life. If you are planning to have a career move, or bring a new leaf or lift a new chapter to your life's pages, then you have to watch first 20th Century Fox's opening salvo movie for 2014. "The Secret Life of Water Mitty" is THE inspirational movie to watch for this January.

Walter Mitty (played by Ben Stiller) has a very ordinary life. He has gone to no places at all, basically, he has a boring life. And may I add to that, Walter Mitty has no love life and a frequently zoned-out guy. He always zoned-out or temporarily goes out of reality and daydreams. He daydreams of saving a dog in a building that is about to explode, an adventure to a mountain with the girl of his dreams, among others.

"Don't Cry Mommy" Movie Review

South Korea's most controversial movie of 2012 recently paved its way to Philippine cinemas via the new independent local distributor of foreign movies, Axinite Digicinema, Inc. The local distributor's initial movie offering was quite an eye opener to the social status of Korea, or perhaps even in the Philippines. The movie's strong attempt to tackle a controversial plot which involves delinquent acts of teenagers (in this movie, it was teenage rape), is so surreal but a little believable. It is said at the beginning of the movie that the writer and the director motivated to do the movie because of several accounts of teenage rape cases in South Korea which were not really resolved due to either lack of evidence or the accuse is a minor and cannot be jailed because of lack of juvenile delinquency laws.
