Movies remain a universal language for many people. However, it has become a hit or miss for millennials due to their need for media literacy. However, we cannot deny the impact movies have had on us as children.

For Filipino fans, we’re not as familiar with PBA Odds, but you do. However, Rocky is one of those classics that are hard to put down. Rocky is one of the golden classics and a huge defining moment for Sylvester Stallone, his magnum opus. It was said to have been written in three and a half days by a tired and out-of-work Sylvester Stallone, who’d held out for the lead role.

Bring It On

Who needs to remember to Bring It On? Bring It On is not afraid to be itself. The movie follows the ultra-privileged Rancho Carne High School cheerleading squad. Kirsten Dunst is the highlight, with her comedy chops and closing out on a career-making run. For a bland flick, it touches on intersectional feminism and has spanned six (6) sequels and a loving homage from Ariana Grande.

The Mighty Ducks
