The Voice 10: Top 8

Not sure what it was - maybe it's the looming bloodbath? - but almost everyone seemed to be on their best form tonight. So while the usual suspects were still underwhelming, the rest delivered some strong performances hoping to snatch one of those coveted Final 4 slots. At this point, I'm still not sure who'll prevail - although there are obvious choices - but I expect some shockers tomorrow especially given how close the rankings currently are on iTunes.

The Voice 10: Top 9

Surprise! Surprise! This wasn't a terrible episode! Yes, there were a couple of weak performances and one that's annoyingly over-the-top, but for the most part, it was a pretty good week. Maybe their setting themselves up for a bloodbath that will happen next week? I don't know, but it's a good sign, right?

The Voice 10: Top 10

This season is turning out to be fairly disappointing. What happened? Yes, I've been b*tching about how underwhelming this season has become since the live shows started and yet, nothing! The quality of performances tonight were too extreme - you have an incredibly BAD performance and something impressively outstanding - and I can't wrap my head around it. Can they finish this season already? Somehow, I'm looking forward to the Miley Cyrus-Alicia Keys season.

Movie Review: Captain America: Civil War

I went into Captain America: Civil War with unfairly gargantuan expectations, and somehow, the film managed to exceed all of them, which is rare in the realm of tiring sequels and lazy remakes. The narrative was simple but tightly focused, the script sparked up the exposition with some sparkling dialogue, and the characters were very well defined. It was astoundingly impressive how the film managed to fit in so many 'big' characters into one film and yet it never felt unbalanced and convoluted - there was a fluid coherence to everything that was quite striking. On a technical standpoint, the film, as expected, was beyond reproach from the flawless visual effects down to the spectacularly choreographed action sequences. Captain America: Civil War was an absurdly entertaining action spectacle that may just be, bar none, the best superhero movie ever! This made me do something increasingly rare in these over-franchised times - root for a sequel. Ha. 10

Movie Review: The Huntsman: Winter's War

No, The Hunstman: Winter's War was far from being a great movie, but it remained to be a perfectly watchable one. The visual imagery was exquisite, the cinematography was glorious, the costume design was stunningly beautiful, some of the fight choreography looked awesome, and Charlize Theron was absolutely crazy majestic. The film somehow overreached though as the story departed more radically from the context of the classic, but I also can't deny that the concept to turn this fairy tale into a straightforward fantasy-adventure was strangely appealing. If only the execution of the plot was handled better and not rely heavily on lame genre tropes, the movie would've had a stronger emotional foothold. The Hunstman: Winter's War may be flawed and somewhat disjointed, but it was aesthetically confident and quite entertaining. That is all. 7

The Voice 10: Top 11

Eh. I'm not impressed.

You see, I've been holding off with my reservations, but I don't think this season will get anymore better and exciting than this. This is it and we'll have to wait for another season to get us all excited. Not to take anything away from the contestants though, but I don't think they are living up to their full potentials. I don't know. I'm just thoroughly underwhelmed.
