Syowing this Week [March 29, 2017]

The weekend's almost here! If you're going to go out and watch a movie, you may wanna check these films that are opening this week...

Ghost in the Shell (2017)
In the near future, Major is the first of her kind: A human saved from a terrible crash, who is cyber-enhanced to be a perfect soldier devoted to stopping the world's most dangerous criminals. This movie directed by Rupert Sanders (the director of "Snow White and the Huntsman" who made controversy because of his affair with star Kristen Stewart, which happened on the set of that film) and stars Scarlett Johansson and Takeshi Kitano is a remake of the monumental 1995 Japanese anime film based off a popular manga of the same title. My snap impression: Sure, why not. I am very curious as to how Hollywood would interpret with this timeless cyberpunk epic tale. If you happen to watch or to have watched the original anime film, check out the special appearance of a San Miguel Beer can in there; Pinoy beer represent!

Northern Lights: A Journey to Love
Charlie Sr. (Piolo Pascual) is a Filipino immigrant in Alaska who is living a carefree life. His life suddenly changes when he is tasked to take care of his estranged son, Charlie Jr. (Raikko Mateo), whom he had left behind in the Philippines. As he struggles to become a real father to his son, Charlie crosses paths with Angel (Yen Santos), a quirky Filipina who went to Alaska to find her lost mother. My snap impression: It looks like the typical "let's make a movie and ride on the fact that it's shot in Alaska as its main gimmick" I could be wrong. But I think it's kinda sickening to see those Pinoy movies whose whole schtick just surrounds on that one gimmick. But as I said: I could be wrong.

Carrie Pilby
Carrie (Bel Powley),a gifted woman who graduated from Harvard at 19, struggles to make sense of the world as it relates to morality, relationships, sex and leaving her New York apartment. Without a job and friends because of her unreasonably high standards, Carrie is told by her therapist to create a five-point plan to get herself on track.

Revenger a.k.a. The Assignment
After being double-crossed, a hit man becomes a hit woman (Michelle Rodriguez) with help from a rogue surgeon (Sigourney Weaver). Accompanied by a nurse named Johnnie, she sets out for revenge

Smurfs: The Lost Village
In this fully animated, all-new take on the Smurfs, a mysterious map sets Smurfette and her friends Brainy, Clumsy and Hefty on an exciting race through the Forbidden Forest leading to the discovery of the biggest secret in Smurf history. My snap impression: Probably awesome for kids. Finally, a smurfs movie set in the smurf world!
