When’s a family’s fortune is tied to creating board games, it comes as no surprise that they would incorporate it into a family tradition. For the Le Domas family in Ready or Not, it’s this: each new member of the family has to play a game, whether it’s chess, backgammon, or hide-and-seek. Grace, who is about to marry Alex, picks hide-and-seek, but doesn’t realize that she is going to be hunted, ideally to death. The result is a wild and gripping movie that had me screaming in delight, surprise, and shock.
Much like how Disney’s 1994 original feature film won over the hearts of fans worldwide, the highly-anticipated return of Disney’s The Lion King was met with excitement and nostalgia during its big opening weekend in the Philippines.
One of the most iconic nerds in pop culture history is Sheldon Cooper of The Big Bang Theory. Ever since the show premiered in 2007, Jim Parsons charmed as Sheldon, a theoretical physicist researching quantum physics and string theory. Despite his IQ of 187, he is socially awkward, making up a chunk of the show’s laughs. The show may have ended last May, but his legacy lives on in Young Sheldon, a prequel series exploring his childhood. The show is just as successful, with its parent network CBS already ordering a third and fourth season earlier this year.
In Young Sheldon, two of the standouts are Zoey Perry And Raegan Revord. Perry plays Sheldon’s mother Mary, while Revord portrays Sheldon’s twin sister Missy. We got to chat with both actresses as they revealed what it’s like on the set, their similarities to their characters, and their favorite ’80s songs.
The opening notes of The Lion King‘s “Circle of Life” always gets me. That soaring “naaaaaaaaants” always manages to reduce me to tears, whether it’s the Disney animated version, the Broadway rendition, or any of the YouTube videos I watch whenever I feel like getting emotional. So when I heard that Disney is doing a live-action adaptation, I was excited to hear a new interpretation of the song I grew up with.
When I first heard that Disney and Pixar are doing a fourth iteration of Toy Story, I was skeptical. Very skeptical. The third one ended beautifully (with a heartwrenching scene in a burning furnace), so when I heard about its plans for another movie, I asked myself, “what other story is there to tell?” After watching Toy Story 4, it turns out there’s more.
A lot of people my age count the Disney version of Aladdin as their favorite film. So when it was announced that a live-action adaptation would be produced, they had high expectations. As high expectations go, they are rarely met so people had things to say when the trailer came out, especially after seeing Will Smith as a blue genie. But after seeing the film a week before its Philippine premiere, I have to say: I love both the animated feature and the adaptation.

It’s hard to believe that The Powerpuff Girls has been around for 20 years! Cartoon Network’s all-time favorite series follows the life of three super-cute, but super-fierce little girls made from sugar, spice, and everything nice – with a splash of Chemical X. For two decades, the show has proven that it can empower everyone and anyone, regardless of age.
