If you have Netflix, this week's Patriot Act episode features two different authoritarians, one of them being our very own erstwhile president, and digs into the senatorial elections

Aquaman Spoiler-Free review! I came in with low expectations (given DC's history), but the movie turned out pretty good, even though it wasn't the best comic book related thing I've seen this week (see previous post) it's fun and action-packed, some fun set pieces and action sequences. Lots of CGI (as can be expected) the plot is fairly predictable, I've seen similar story arcs for this character more than once, things pretty much happen as you expect also the plot kinda feels a bit like black panther, except in reverse? does that make sense? the first act felt a bit

Sometimes in my head, I like to give the president the benefit of the doubt, that maybe he isn't aware of killings being perpetrated in his name or that he has no idea his policies lead to such violence or maybe subordinates are doing it without his knowledge or maybe it's just rogue cops or whatever. I can't read his mind, so I understand there's a whole spectrum of possibilities as to what the truth is. Then he opens his mouth to speak and it is easy to see which end of that spectrum is far more likely.

Day 10 of 10 posters of my favorite movies! I enjoyed this meme, despite finding it difficult at first to come up with a list of 10. I was tempted to talk about each movie in turn, but the original meme said to post without explanation. Perhaps when I am not busy I will instead make a blog post about it.
Posters of my favorite movies #9 out of 10! I feel obliged to tag Raymond Lirag (hindi pwede si David e lol)
Day 8 of 10 of posting posters of my favorite movies!
Survey: Do you think toilet paper rolls should be placed over or under? For reference:

Day 6 of 10 of posting posters of my favorite movies!
Day 5 of 10 of posting my favorite movie posters (suko na muna sa drawing, walang time). I was nominated by a mystery person. I nominate Josiah Tendero Habana to carry on this fine tradition. All comments to this post must be expressed as a quote from this movie.

Day 4 of 10, drawing/posting posters of my favorite movies. I was nominated by David Ramirez. I am cheating again because I didn't bother drawing this poster. I thought about it, but was not confident enough that I would be able to capture Cruise/Nicholson/Moore's likenesses and the drawing would be too hard to recognize so w/e. I'm tired of nominating people so I'll stop lol
Day 3 of 10, drawing posters of my favorite movies. I was nominated by David Ramirez and I nominate Brian Jefferson Tan to also choose his 10 favorite movies and post their posters (or draw them, pwede din)
I've been nominated by David Ramirez to choose my 10 favorite films. I don't feel like the poster thing either, instead I'll (attempt to) draw the poster! This is #1 of 10. I nominate Kerwin Tang (the nominee can just do the poster, no need to draw. Pero pwede din lol)
