  1. nakakalungkot na ang ang pagiging kabit ay siyang kumikita kung totoo man; sa Amerka mas matatalino ang mga viewrs kasi kadalasan ang kumikita don ay ang mga movies na wholesome at may values na palikula at di kababuyan; imagine mas gusto mung panoorin ang pagiging kabit kaysa of all the thing na wholesome at may values? anong klase kang mamayan ?at kailan mas intersting panoorin ang tema ng pagiging kabit? kaysa sa wholesome na movie? aber? sa Amerika mas kumikita ang mga pelikula ng mga beterano o mas magagaling na artista kaysa sa baguhan; at yon namn talaga ang mas tama at mas dapt gawin ng isang matinong manonood;kaya napakaunlad ng US kasi suportive sila sa mga good movies! at di sa kalaswaan .hindi ung baguhan ka lng na artista ay kumita daw ng 300million? unfair naman sa mga batikang artista! sana maging matalino namn ang veiwers at di sunod sunoran na parng robot.

  2. hindi naman nakapagtataka kung ma-break ng this guy’s in love with mare ang the mistress o praybeyt benjamin man ang box office pinoy movie of all time dahil ang mga pelikulang yan ay parehonh pwedeng panoorin ng youger ages. di katulad ng the mistress na nilimitahan lang ang age ng viewers dahil sa maselan nitong story.
