Maraming Magandang Filipino Films.
Sunday Beauty Queen
- It’s very unusual for a documentary to be selected to join MMFF. Guess what? It’s a good “movie”.
- Mixed Emotions at it’s finest. You will laugh, you will cry, feel sorrow, feel the love and a whole lot more.
- This movie will make us understand that people working abroad are not just traveling or having fun in other countries.
- The cinematography is good. The color, the tone and the transition of the scenes were executed properly.
- Each story will touch your heart. Mylyn’s story touched my heart the most and it made me cry
- It is a typical MMK or MPK story but executed beautifully.
- Paolo Ballesteros’ efforts paid off. Truly, after years of waiting, his time arrived.
- Christian Bables is the scene stealer. He played the role of BFF Barbs flawlessly. You would feel the friendship with the mere body language.
- The cameo roles of Iza Calzado, Eugene Domingo and Luis Alandy made an impact, short but remarkable.
- Direk Jun Lana created another masterpiece. I can see a lot of International Film Festivals for this movie.
- The cinematography of the movie is good. The color is smooth and clean.
- Suspense/Horror is really Direk Erik Matti’s genre. Successful scaring.
- The child star who played Angela is very convincing as an evil girl.
- The performance of Ronnie Alonte who played one of the priests, is better compared to his acting in Vince & Kath & James, but still needs improvement. I just thought that it would be better if Dominique Roque played his role and vice versa.
- It’s like Shake Rattle & Roll, only better.
- I enjoyed the movie so much that I forgot the setting is not real.
- The approach of the movie is like a project from college but created by the best students.
- Rhian Ramos and Enzo Marcos are both effective playing Sally and Marty. It’s as if they are not acting.
- The best friend who is secretly in love with the other best friend is a sure bucks. Admit it, we all had that kind of story back in school.
- 2 surprises on this movie : The after credit which I almost miss and my ultimate blogger crushSaab Magalonain a cameo role.
Vince & Kath & James
- I didn’t know that this movie was based on a viral “textserye” on Facebook. Thanks to my niece.
- Surprisingly, it’s a nice movie. I may not be their target audience but I enjoyed it.
- Julia Barretto can act but she’s more on the drama side than rom-com.
- Joshua Garcia is a revelation. He can act. He can give John Lloyd and JM de Guzman a run for their money. On the other hand, the producer should’ve picked a better actor to play James instead of Ronnie Alonte.
- Soundtrack is good. From Ylonna and Bailey to Daniel Padilla to Ebe Dancel. Mabuhay ang OPM!
Ange Babae Sa Septic Tank 2 #ForverisNotEnough
- The way this movie discussed the predictable formulas of a mainstream rom-com movie is brilliant.
- The movie is quite short than the usual 2-hour Pinoy movies but it didn’t affect the flow of the story. I hope it is longer for the sole reason that it’s a fun movie.
- I don’t know the reason for picking “Forever Is Not Enough” to be the theme song but it worked. Especially the Ukelele scene.
- The steam bath scene is the most hilarious. I won’t be a spoiler, just watch.
- Eugene Domingo is Eugene Domingo. I will never get tired of her comedic acting, at least for now.
*Didn’t get the chance to watch Oro and Kabisera
