impressive, etc. (colloquial meanings)
Explanation: The original meaning of "malupit" is cruel, etc. as explained correctly above. In addition, the word has also acquired colloquial meaning(s) especially among younger speakers: "impressive".
This connotation approximates the English colloquial meaning for "wicked" e.g. "That new multi-player combat game is simply wicked!!"
However, rest assured that "malupit" in this context is almost always used as in casual ocassions e.g. as a "street" expression, in TV sitcoms/comic strips, etc. It is very rarely used in formal settings such as bibliographic text.
