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.

Ang Babae sa Septic Tank 2

Better and sensible plot than its predecessor. Ang Babae sa Septic Tank 2: Forever is not enough never disappoints once again. If you are a fan of the first film, you will surely love this one. The story still evolve on the story of the well-established film producers but this time, they face a new challenge. I loved how the Director played with the real-life role of Eugene Domingo and the struggles of the film producers to please her considering a variety of factors. This time, the film found sense into one of the character’s back story. Also, the story shows metaphor of mainstream rommcomms nowadays. Aside from its tried and tested comedy formula, the film’s strength lies into its creative cinematography and engaging conversations and sequences. Not entirely spectacular nor inspiring but still a good movie to watch. Loved the characters too. By the way, Eugene’s acting here is good. Giving 4/5 stars.

Walang Forever

For me, no wonder why Walang Forever won the Best Picture for MMFF 2015. The film is a mirror of reality – a reality about love. Clichè as it may be coined but the word “walang forever” was given a whole new interpretation with maturity. Youngsters may aspire for this kind of status nowadays but the film showed depth as it presented a solid plot about selfless love, second chances & forgiveness. I recommend this film to shallow youngsters who have misconception about love. Other than a compelling storyline, Walang Forever’s strength lies with Jennylyn & Jericho itself. The two lead actors’ chemistry was really strong. I commend Jericho for being his best. Jennylyn was impressive as always. They both complimented well with each other. Their acting fits the demand of the story. Scenes were indeed relatable as it depicted norm of the society. It need not to have those striking lines for it to be so striking as the flow of the story will bring you to heartwarming realization that FOREVER really exist. Shed some tears along the way. For me, the best Pinoy ROMCOM Film to date. Hats off Dan Villegas on this.

Buy Now Die Later

buy-now-die-later

A resemblance of Stephen King’s Needful Things – Buy Now, Die Later started off as an interesting Horror comedy involving a demonic owner of a shop that can fulfill your desires and fantasies in life. Studded with a promising & talented cast that is the film’s major strength. It has some good yet minimal jump-out scares injected with the right amount of comedy. After the 2nd half, everything was a mess. I find the climax to be weak and goofy though. Nevertheless, this was a good attempt for a Pinoy film in the field of Horror-comedy. I really love Sweet Lapus’ scenes. Pak na pak! 3/5 stars.
