The Healing

The HealingThe Healing is another engaging horror flick by Chito Roño that generates a respectable amount of suspense. This movie is starred by Gov. Vilma Santos for her 50th anniversary in show business and co-starred by Kim Chiu, Joel Torre, Janice de Belen, Pokwang, Martin del Rosario and many others. It was directed by Chito Roño.

I am really unsure of what to expect last night at the Director’s Cut of Chito Rono’s The Healing. Star Cinema’s The Healing is a story of Filipino tradition wherein people are asking for help on treatment of diseases. A news about the miraculous works of a faith healer spread like wildfire attracting the attention of people suffering from various illness coming from all walks of life. All of the sudden, the faith healer stops her “healing” sessions but was forced by a group of patient.

The story circled with the aftereffects of bringing a dead person back into life by a faith healer. Ever since that incident, lives of all those cured by the healer has been put into danger. An appearance of a doppelganger is a sign that something bad is going to happen to a character. When a character meets his doppelganger, he will go insane, harming other people and then eventually killing himself. The only way to break the curse is to kill the person who was brought back to life.

The Avengers – Movie Review

The Avengers - Movie Review
The Avengers, directed by Joss Whedon takes you on a roller coaster ride filled with out-of-the-world action sequences, mind boggling special effects and entertainment to the hilt.

The story of this movie was, six superheroes – Iron Man (Downey Jnr), Captain America (Chris Evans), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), Hulk (Ruffalo) are brought under one roof by S.H.I.E.L.D. director, Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson), when Thor’s evil brother Loki threatens to destroy Earth. However, to stop Loki, the superheroes must sort out their personal differences and work together as a team.

I have got to tell anyone that this is one of the best adventure movies I’ve ever seen. The only word I can think of to describe this movie is AWESOME.  It’s amazing work and everything I had hoped for and more. One of the many things I loved was the tension and flat out conflict that arises between team members. It’s not a two dimensional “team wonderful that bands together to fight crime ho ho ho.” Most don’t like each other at fist and there is so much texture to be played. That is great because so many of these characters are larger than life. They have egos and the big guns aren’t used to working with other people or even playing by the rules. Stark, Thor and Banner all work “the other side of the fence” so to speak. Then there’s the Widow, Hawkeye and Captain America who are used to following orders and playing within a command structure. They are all thrown together in a wonderful and, best of all, believable fashion. Again, more than I ever dreamed possible.

The Avengers: Iron Man and Captain America

Iron Man and Captain America probably get the most screen time (or at least the most focus). And while Whedon and the funny and clever Tony Stark seem made for each other, I was very impressed how he handled Captain America, who is a far more straightforward and unwaveringly noble fellow than Whedon – who prefers his characters to be a bit more ambiguous and flawed — is known for, but one he handles very well, as Captain America takes on the leadership role he was destined for.

I must say The Avengers is the best Marvel superhero movie yet!

If you enjoy watching thriller action films, The Avengers is the perfect choice for you! Go, relax and settle down with your 3D glasses for a match of super powers!
