GENRE: Romantic, Drama


For me, THE HOWS OF US is definitely the best KATHNIEL Movie so far. I have been a fan of all Kathniel movies and I am looking forward for their movie projects. The Hows of Us is by far their most promising movie offering  matured and quality performances from both Kathryn & Daniel. Plot-wise, it is very easy to digest. What make it stand out from all their other movies is that the film is raw, honest, genuine and very realistic. The movie is simply all about having a long-term relationship and just surviving it against all odds. What makes it special is the scenarios and decisions the characters have to be made. All of the scenes are truly relatable. With the conflict of Passion, Family & Stability, The Hows of Us has perfectly portrayed  the crossroads of emotions and decision-making. At some point, I am really affected by their decisions too. The movie is emotionally-compelling specially that the lines and conversations were brilliantly-crafted. I must commend the script writer for a job well done. Cinematography is also commendable especially the scenes shot in Amsterdam. Musical Scoring was good too. Acting-wise, Kathniel and Daniel delivered their best performance yet. Chemistry is given. But what sets their performances from all their previous movies is MATURITY. I see a more seasoned acting prowess from both of them. Kathryn slayed every scene. Daniel never failed to give justice to his role too. Overall, The Hows of Us will truly affect its viewers especially that it touches a lot of values and issues which are truly happening nowadays. What I like about the film is that it imparts a very valuable lesson about love and life. Moreover, it makes us realize the decisions we will be making that will truly define our future. Worth-watching all over again.


How I wish AMSTERDAM was given a little more emphasis in terms of Production Design. Nevertheless, it still give me that invitation to go there very soon.

Barcelona: A Love Untold


Hello Kathniel Fans! Please don’t bash me. Barcelona: A Love Untold is somehow not the Star Cinema thing I expected. I have always been a fan of KathNiel for movies but this movie somehow gave me a pinch of disappointment. Well, for the record. I still loved Shes Dating the Gangster and Crazy Beautiful You. The film was able to pull-out the maturity from Daniel and Kathryn that the audience wanted but was caught with a bloated storytelling and some uneven complexities along the way. Despite powerful performances from KN and a beautiful Barcelona Setting, the film is exhausting and at some point frustrating. It could have been better with a very light plot. Actually, its more of a family drama than a love story. Still, enjoyed the film despite its flaws. Their chemistry is just magic. Thanks for the ending. It somehow saved the film for me. 3/5 stars.


Crazy Beautiful You


I have been a KathNiel fan during She’s Dating a Gangster Days. But I even loved them more for Crazy Beautiful You. Thank you ABS CBN & Star Cinema for giving KathNiel the best film projects their fans deserve. What more I can say? This film is a perfect mix of romance and family drama. I loved the way the director created a thin line between the two. I love to see Kat & DJ grow into the finest actors this industry has to offer. The film is indeed a feel-good movie about forgiveness and second chances for your loved ones. More than romance, Crazy Beautiful You tickles its audience with some family drama that everyone could relate. Thanks to Gabby C. & Lorna T. for being a good compliment to such a talented cast. I was smiling and literally in *kilig overload*. Gosh! I really wanted to watch it again. 5/5 stars
