The Pinoy Exchange Movie Challenge 2014

So there’s this site that I’ve been a member of since 2007 and they just launched their Movie Club for which I registered and they have this Movie Challenge which I’m really into right now so most of my coming film reviews will now be shorten as I’ll just be copy-pasting my posted reviews from there. 🙂 I think it’d be fun since it would last for a year – it’d be my some sort of pet project this year aside from my little project of reading certain number of books / e-book titles this year.
