WHAT I LIKE?

Seven Sundays is a cinematic masterpiece and one of Star Cinema’s finest films after Tanging Yaman. The film is a perfect blend of family drama, romance and heartwarming message that cuts deep. What I like about the movie is its faithfulness to the Filipino Family spirit and its direct and on-point interpretation of family-oriented values that most of us can relate to. Its very close to the Filipino audience as it tackles different issues within an ordinary family setting from indifferences and struggles that are realistic. I really commend the creativity on majority of the scenes specially the Opening Credits. Cinematography-wise, its impressive. Phasing and variety of sequences are great since the scenes were supported well with superb performances and consistent story-telling technique. The scenes and conversations were just right with the plot. I really love the script and choice of words too. Seven Sundays’ main strength is its impressive cast of characters. All of them were just great in their own roles and were all good compliments with each other. Aga Muhlach was a perfect choice as an eldest sibling. Dingdong Dantes’ portrayal of a rich sibling was good too. Cristine Reyes may play the same role of a estranged wife but this time, she is realistic. Enrique Gil’a role at first maybe vague and irrelevant but as the story progresses, he will bring us into a deeper take on his side in the family. Overall, Cathy Garcia-Molina did a great job in combining a stellar cast with a very heartwarming and inspiring plot material close to our heart. Worth-watching indeed.

WHAT I DON’T LIKE?

The ending is a bit off and cringe-worthy for me. Its forgivable though.

WHAT I LIKE?

I like everything about the film. Generally it is predictable but My Ex & Whys is probably the best LizQuen movie so far. With its very relatable plot about romance and second chances, the movie appealed well with all die-hard LizQuen fans and fans of Pinoy RomComms as well. From the tried and trusted Star Cinema Production and the magical and romantic hands of Cathy Garcia-Molina, the movie is overall feel-good and inspiring. What I loved about the film is its cinematography and production value. I commend the slow motion scenes and of course the scenes in Korea which was produced well on big screen. Aside from its not-so-complicated plot, My Ex & Whys will glue you with outright comedy and witty hugot lines and engaging conversations that won’t bore you at all even for a single minute. Also, LizQuen formula never fails to impress me. This time, I saw them as more mature in terms of acting. Hats off to Liza Soberano. The irresistible charm of Liza and Enrique is more than worth your admission ticket. Loved the variety of the supporting characters too that added spice and life in the film. Credits to Ryan Band and Joross Gamboa for being the best compliments as support. The film will put a lingering smile in your face after. It will move and inspire you in terms of second chances and taking risks about love. One of Star Cinema’s best.

WHAT I DON’T LIKE?

Sorry to disappoint fans but there is still no kissing scenes. Well, you can call that a spoiler.

Everyday I Love You

2a

When you loved LizQuen from Just the Way You Are, you’ll even love them more in Everyday I Love You. Cheers to ABS-CBN for this another wonderful romantic masterpiece of one the biggest loveteams in the PH nowadays. Aside from featuring the beautiful city of Bacolod, EILY draws its strength from a very light-hearted plot that can keep you smiling when you go out of the theater house. I see a more mature Liza and Enrique in terms of acting. Not to mention their undeniably strong chemistry together. I commend how organized the director is in terms of sequences. The Cinematography of the film is crafted well. Aside from kilig overload, the story blends in the right amount of family drama typical of a Pinoy Romcomm. A feel-good romantic movie Graded A by the Cinema Evaluation Board. 5/5 stars for this. 10/5 stars for Enrique’s stares and smiles. Lol!

Just The Way You Are

poster-for-lizquen-movie-just-the-way-you-are-is-here

When we love, we always win. A very striking statement from a suprisingly great RomCom Film, Just the Way You Are topbilled by today’s hottest love team, LizQuen. Star Cinema & ABS-CBN striking-while-the-iron-is-hot formula worked well as it pulled off some great performances from Liza & Enrique. This predictable and shallow film may be a clichè but this one has some pinch-of-the-heart touch of family and a variety of romantic and cheesy ingredients. LizQuen’s chemistry is undeniably the film’s major strength. A feel-good movie with an easy-to-digest plot deserving for a popcorn with friends. Need not to dig down its cinematic flaws and some mainstream reviews. 5 stars for the film & 10 stars for Enrique’s topless scenes. Lol!
