  1. First of all, just click on the reply button..

    Secondly, I wonder if YOU did something.. I wonder if you are even worth something the country can be proud of. The same applies to you smart “aleck.” Your comment is unfair is a sense of being personal. While he was being general of the matter.

    Also, film critics say the same things about tons of films. Think they care where the film is from?
    They say bad things about tons of films.. Good or not. East or West.

    But here’s the point..

    Bel has a point. If you’ve done some research..
    Study shows that TV destroys IQ.

    Here’s my view about Phil. Cinema:

    This is also in the same sense with movies, especially like the ones they play here in the Philippines. With most movies following a formula that of a soap opera.

    The quality is horrible in most soap operas. But I’ve watched one or two really good ones in the past 5 years while in the Philippines.

    I’ve watched many amazing films, from all over the world.
    Regardless of year or origin. And I have got to say, the Philippine cinema is getting worse. With horrible CGI from TV AND MOVIES.
    The movie range here is not ready for high budget CGI.
    (or small studio CGI for that matter)
    Rather they stick with what they already know.
    Live action is truly a better format in Philippine cinema.
    Especially old action movies in the Philippines.

    Long gone are those days..

    Another thing is genre.. Their genre spectrum is small.
    They don’t cover a lot of different movies.
    Which is why, tons of people look out for many American films.

    Which is never a let down.. Enjoyable for most.

    But wouldn’t we like a action movie from the Philippines once in awhile? Or a very interesting drama? Or even history?
    Just like last year’s MMFF.

    If there was more diversity in genre, and also the screenplay in movies. I think Philippine cinema would be even more so looked at by other international movie critics.

    Movies are an expression of art but if you add countless clichés.
    Its like watching TV on the big screen. Leading to a wasted 100-300 pesos.. And who wants to waste that much money?

    You can watch an amazing film for the same price?
    Wouldn’t you want to watch the best movie in that case?

    I don’t bash on Philippine cinema.
    But rather, encourage directors to better add vary to their stories.
    Although most just shrug.

    Once you greatly improve on writing..
    The rest will follow after.
    And surely, Filipinos everywhere will be extremely proud to call it..

    A FILIPINO film.

  2. Everyone has the right to like and not to like our own movies…but the point here is…we Filipinos are expecting too much…we love to assume more..we love to discriminate more…admit it…but maybe, we have to look on the other side…ignore negativity…try to look on the positive side and learn to appreciate what others have…those who are keep on judging those movies negatively…you better produce your own movie so that you can meet your own expectation…plus you can avoid discriminating others works.

  3. eh di kaw na ang intelectwal na nilalang. you are just one of the few against the many who entertained these movies. and please learn when to use apostrophe. it is WERE and not WE’RE.

  4. This is just plain stupid. Why they even appriciate sappy teeny romance and CORNY movies? Enteng Kabisote has lost its taste because much more stolen CGIs were there, and Sisterakas? You’ve got to be kidding me. This year, the movies we’re really REALLY terrible. Pumatok lang naman sa mga kabataan ito eh. Kaya mas lalong bumababa ang intelligence ng youth natin dahil sa mga ganyang pinapalabas nila. /facepalm

  5. @ bel

    Filipinos watch these movies because I believe they have some sense in it. If these movies provide the Filipinos enjoyment then why won’t they watch it? If we continue in comparing our movies from the West then we’ll never know what we have.

    You know what? I wonder if you even did something good for the country. I wonder if you are even something the country can be proud of. You underestimate the worth of this movie like you can do better. Duh. I won’t doubt if you are just one of those people who does nothing but give out opinions. What would be the ‘may katuturan movies’ then you are referring to? All you do is talk. Our country does not need someone like you. Shoo.

  6. The Philippine Movie Industry doesn’t produce quality movies often in answer to the demand of the Philippine moviegoers. Need I say more. I don’t understand why even if Filipino viewers are offered better films, they choose to watch “walang katuturan na mga movies.” Something is very wrong here. No wonder our political world is infested with unqualified popular politicians because of the way people think. So if our country doesn’t really improve even if they claiming it is, then there’s nobody to blame but the people themselves. Thus, the people don’t have the right to complain.
