MMFF Movies to Watch

December 16, 2010 Neil

After seeing the trailers of all 8 MMFF finalists, only two are worth watching. The rest are CRAP!

I understand that any medium, including supposed “artworks” like film, will perish if it fails to cater to a wider audience but mainstream Filipino movies have been remakes after remakes. I want to see quality “mainstream” movies.

Until the bill on tax exemptions on locally-made films is ratified and piracy stopped, the film industry will continue to produce useless movies to weep. What an audience can do is to not support ugly movies and rally behind finer films.

Here are the two movies to watch in the 36th Metro Manila Film Fest. The other movies (Ang Tanging Ina Mo (Last na ‘to), Dalaw, Father Jejemon, Shake Rattle and Roll XII, Si Agimat at si Enteng Kabisote and Super Inday & the Golden Movie) should not have been on the list.

Politics runs deep in our country’s movie industry and I wouldn’t be surprised if Kris Aquino wins the Best Actress Award. (Oh, God. Help us.)

RPG: Metanoia

I was excited when I first saw the teaser in 2008. It’s been two long years of waiting and finally it’s here – Philippine’s first computer-animated film. And it’s available in 3D.

I can’t imagine RPG: Metanoia not winning the Best Visual Effects.

Rosario

Set in the 1920 Philippines, Rosario is the story of woman ahead of her time. The movie has a number of “firsts”. It’s the directorial debut of Albert Martinez, Jennylyn Mercado’s first lead role in a movie, it’s TV 5’s first try on a full-length feature film and it’s also the first Filipino film to use the new Arri Alexa Camera.

    Crap? The rest are crap? Why don’t you watch them all and see what is really a “Crap”! Can you make a movie on your own, a movie which is not a CRAP!!! My God, you don’t even know how to appreciate small things… Or maybe you expected so much “mainstream” in the MMFF movie entries… Why would a movie outfit make an UGLY movie to weep on by the viewers… Indie films… indie stupid films… I hate them… they don’t make any sense… you don’t make sense
