What a (non-revenue) chance passenger should know before an international flight

Non-revenue passengers, more popularly referred to as chance passengers, are travelers with flight privileges to fly either for free or at significantly discounted rates. It is worth noting though that some chance passengers are not necessarily non-revenue passengers, like those full-paying travelers requesting for sudden changes in their flight itineraries and trying their luck that their targeted flights are not full. These non-revenue passengers are airline employees or some of their family members and friends. However, free or discounted fares may also lead to these travelers suffering from delayed flights, or worst, not being able to fly to their intended destinations

‘Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire’ Film Review: Dark, adolescent Potter film

Darker, a little more mature, and a little less magical, “Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire” primarily deals with rejection and hormones as Harry and his friends struggle through transition from childhood to young adulthood. This motion picture focuses on the Hogwarts students in the seemingly awkward stage of their youth. The film’s look is less ostentatious than the previous installments. This time, things are more intimate and real. With the exceptions of a Quidditch stadium and some dragons and mermaids, it tones down on special effects. Yet, it enchants and satisfies its followers and its now grown-up fans. Some familiarity with

‘Bikini Open’ Film Review: On spoofs and bikinis

"Bikini Open" puts a number of serious issues into the limelight by twisting them into comic fun -- the murky side of pageantry, TV, advertising, and media as a whole, in between the struggle for ratings, mileage, and fame. Using HD camera blown up to 35mm film, this tightly budgeted cinematic offering turns out as a good watch. As a commercial fare, “Bikini Open” works with a satirical vibe. Its premise remains culturally correct and aptly representing the larger scale of realism the story needs. The film’s non-linear format provides a fitting treatment and motivation for the characters. The narrative flow makes a valuable distinction in presenting

‘Corpse Bride’ Film Review: A charming grave fairy tale

Behind its eerie theme, Tim Burton's "Corpse Bride" presents a morbid and romantic trip between the cold dwelling place of the living and the colorful underground realm of the dead. Fun, genial, expressive, and charming, this semi-musical stop-motion piece is set at death's door, saluting the liberating power of true love and sacrifice. The story revolves around a young groom-to-be who mistakenly weds a girl from the grave and complicates his upcoming marriage to the woman he loves. The directors paint death as a more colorful plane of existence compared to life, as literally shown on the visuals -- a bitterly cold

‘Batman Begins’ Film Review: A great beginning for the Dark Knight

”Batman Begins” explores the origins of Bruce Wayne's (Christian Bale) emergence as Batman and brings back the essence of what drives him to be who he is. Human emotions as love, fear and anger begin a new face for the Dark Knight as a cinematic and yet realistic film. This makes his character more human than the rest of the “Batman” films of the past. This time, the film justifies the idea that Batman is still "just a man" under the black costume, still has his vulnerable side, gets bruises, feels pain — not just any superhero without a decent human past to
