WHAT I LIKE?

Ang Dalawang Mrs. Reyes is a complete package of decent laughs, heartwarming lesson and impressive acting performances from its talented cast. What I like about the film is its interesting touch on marriage and homosexuality. The Director creatively made the whole concept light-hearted and at the same time inspiring as well. The movie will bring you to a fun ride of the two women who wanted to see answers and even seek revenge to their gay husbands. Yes, the whole spy thing is truly hilarious and highly-entertaining. I must commend the Scriptwriter of the film for such a superb choice of words and very engaging conversations. We were really engrossed on all the striking statements of the characters. Plot-wise, Ang Dalawang Mrs. Reyes offers the right balance of conflict material and resolution that will give way to heartwarming realizations about acceptance, forgiveness and moving on. I loved that the film also gives respect to the LGBT Community. The star of the movie is the perfect combination of Judy Ann Santos and Angelica Panganiban. I have never imagined how great their comedic timing is. Both of them complimented well with each other. They were at their best. I must also commend another impressive performance from Joross Gamboa. There was never any dull
moment with Ang Dalawang Mrs. Reyes. This movie is highly-recommended for those who wanted to have a good laugh at the end of the day.

The Unmarried Wife

img_1022

The Unmarried Wife never failed to be one of Star Cinema’s finest. However, I find the whole film’s running time to be exhausting as it is bloated. The film might be a cliché from all the infidelity-themed out there but there is something about The Unmarried Wife. I actually loved how the film portrayed Woman empowerment and how the conflict became the turning point inspiration of the film’s intriguing title. The movie was supported well with some flashbacks that actually made sense as a whole. Aside from that, the scenes were not so overdressed and the confrontation scenes were elevated with mature execution. The Director was so subtle in delivering the film’s message. A little bit heavy at some point but the degree of conflicts in the film were actually the factor to convey what the film is all about. At some point, you will think that the film is too much. Aside from a very good execution in terms of story-telling, the film’s strength lies with its talented cast. Angelic P. never failed to impress me with her acting prowess. Dingdong and Paulo were both fit for their role. The 3 actors complimented well in all of their performances. Not as impressive as it should be but the film is a masterpiece on its own. 4/5 stars
