‘In Her Shoes’ Film Review: More than just a chick flick

This movie is an interestingly profound and complex story about different relationships: familial, friendly, romantic. "In Her Shoes" features a decently textured narrative about the reconnection of two estranged sisters who have nothing in common but their shoe sizes. Offering enough depth, the story is not just about a simple issue on sibling rivalry made into a rushed script. It becomes more than a show-off of Hollywood stars ramping fashion clothes and blobbing about some insensible girl talks. This chick flick, based on

‘War of the Worlds’ Film Review: A movie about family and alien invasion

Steven Spielberg's movie version of "War of the Worlds" goes a more family-driven route than the H.G. Wells novel. The cinematic engagement one can get from "War of the Worlds" centers on its being a family story more than the alien invasion plot the title suggests. The narrative focuses more on family relationships while showing a glimpse of some American tanks and aircrafts mercilessly incinerated by three-legged, tripod-looking alien machines and extraterrestrial tentacles grabbing humans toward the worst end. With some blatant

Travel Guide: Ideal movies to bring during a family road trip

The traveling family should always choose age-appropriate films to bring during road trips.

This is worth reading whether you are young or not so young. I read this post in social media: https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/career-advice-i-wish-had-25-shane-rodgers This is an excerpt from the said post: "4. Deprioritise your career when your kids are young If you have skills, commitment and passion, careers tend to take care of themselves. Over the long haul, it really doesn’t matter if you have a few years when your career is in canter mode while you prioritise young children. This should apply to men and women.

A Mother’s Day 2019 musing

Happy Mother’s Day! The fulfillment is indescribable regardless of all the challenges including those in a society that doesn’t fully understand, help, and support the importance of family, children, and parenthood. I just read this article via social media and it sums up the struggles that women, whether with or without children, have to contend with as members of the filmmaking workforce: https://www.latimes.com/entertainment/tv/la-ca-working-moms-hollywood-20190510-story.html I personally experienced having to disappear for 1.5 hour for an extended lunch in between a shoot to pump

Born Out of Love: Career and motherhood

I read this social media post: Motherhood Is Not a Woman's Most Important Job: It's more like an unpaid volunteer position you commit to for life My two cents here... Some people tend to say, the best kind of work you can get is working with your passion and not treating your work as a job. As mentioned in this article, motherhood, a very fulfilling and miraculous experience one can have, is not a job and a mother doesn’t get paid for

Parenting Lessons: Finding time for children

I watched this Ted Talk video: My two cents here: In many things in this world, we believe having a strong foundation is crucial. So the ever-challenging role of parenting should not ignore the importance of being there, especially in the first few years of a child’s life. Clearly, there will be sacrifices in individual lives and careers of parents, but such sacrifices, especially on “me” times, won’t last that long. It’s more like an investment to better family life, I suppose. I’m
