It got some resistance and criticism from “the establishment,” but for the most part, the 2016 Metro Manila Film Festival was both a breath of fresh air and a shot in the arm. Gone were the predictable and tired sequels (Shake, Rattle and Roll, Mano Po, Enteng Kabisote) and formula…

After seven years of devotion to The Walking Dead, I decided to take a break from that show and watch a new one. I ended up giving something very different a try—Crazy Ex-Girlfriend. It’s an hour-long comedy with bits of dark humor and musical numbers thrown in. Rebecca Bunch is…
