TOP 10 MOVIES TO WATCH THIS MAY 2013

As I was making a list of the movies I am going to watch this month and review for you guys, I thought “Hey, why not share it with everyone?”

There have been a lot of things going on the previous month and I already have a long list of restaurants I’ve been to but haven’t reviewed, and movies I’ve watched but haven’t written about. I needed to get my act together and be organized!
So here you go, I’m sharing with you the Top 10 Movies in my list that I’ll be looking forward to watch this May, ranked according to their level of awesomeness (Number 1 being the best). You can check out the trailers here as well. I’ve also included a list of the rest of the movies showing this month together with their release dates in the Philippines, so keep scrolling!
