Movie time with iflix.


So far, I’ve caught a few favorite movies I don’t mind seeing again and again, and from the iflix library, I’ve penned a few action movies and a few Filipino indie titles on the must see list.

For a person who doesn’t frequent the movie houses, this is a far better arrangement—popcorn unlimited at any of corner of the house at my own time.

Recently, the iflix team flew to town to touch base with the local media and bloggers over dinner at my favorite home for Filipino comfort food cuisine, Rekado. (The mention of the venue alone made me say yes to the invite in an instant).

The second floor set-up—a wide screen at one corner, a throw pillow-filled carpet in another and movie house nibble necessities of popcorn, etc. on the dining tables—was a hint that it was going to be movie night. Sweet.
