Last, November 8 2012, was my first time to watch the said movie. At first I was bored because, personally, I do not like watching old movies because, typically, the words are quite profound, the resolutions of the movies are quite poor and, sometimes, I dislike the plot itself. But as the movie went on, I came to like the movie because it showed a plot which I am not accustomed to. I haven’t seen a modern movie in my entire being which shows such plot, with such setting, because I don’t think movies like that sells so the people anymore.

Also, I think the movie shows how different people think from that time to the people today. That people from that time were easily convinced of what was happening to their environment, even without looking for evidence, especially, when it comes to religion, and what parts them from the people today is that, you must show them a lot of proof, first before they believe you. Another thing I noticed is how people then give much importance to religion but it was shown in the movie how faithless those people were because of how they worshiped the character of Elsa.

One of my favorite parts is when Chayong hanged herself because she was not able to cope with the shame and anxiety anymore after she and Elsa was sexually assaulted by two men, especially because she felt filthy and disillusioned realizing that the character of Elsa wasn’t able to help her even if she was a faithful apostle to Elsa, believing that she was possessed by the Virgin Mary. Another scene, is when Elsa confessed that she had no sighting of the Virgin Mary and when she delivered the famous lines. I made e mad; to think that she was just imagining all those stuff which caused hysteria to the people, which made those people worship her more than the Virgin Mary herself, to think that, her, being delusional, had caused the death of many people including one of her best friends, it also caused the closing of the business of another friend of hers because the people believed in Elsa so much that they would do anything she says. To sum this all up, I really liked the movie. It strengthened my views about religion, and I had a well-spent afternoon.

I made me mad; to think that she was just imagining all those stuff which caused TINIMBANG KA, NGUNIT KULANG The parable of The Good Samaritan was about a Jewish traveller who was beaten, robbed and left half-dead along the road. First, a priest then a Levite comes by, but avoided the man. Finally, a Samaritan comes by. Samaritans and Jews generally despised each other, but the Samaritan helps the injured man. Now, which do you think is more important? Living up to the standards of how the people in your social standing act or being a humane person.

This question lingered in mind as we watched the movie “Tinimbang Ka, Ngunit Kulang” starring Lolita Rodriguez as Kuala, Eddie Garcia as Cesar, Mario O’ Hara as Berto, Hilda Koronel as Evangeline and Christopher De Leon as Junior. The story was about a small town boy named Junior as he struggles with his teenage life as an only child in a wealthy family, with the prettiest girl in his school, Evangeline, as his girlfriend and with friends that are also as well-known and rich as he is. Although his life is seemingly perfect, he starts to see the faults in all these good things.

First is his father, Cesar, who’s a womanizer and his materialistic mother, Carolina, often argue with each other. Then, his girlfriend, Evangeline, was forced to marry his friend, Nitoy, because it was found out that he got Evangeline pregnant. As he starts to realize these faults, he became friends with Berto, who was a leper after knowing that Berto was in love with Kuala, who was the town’s idiot. Later, he discovers that his father is the guy who Kuala loved and that he’s responsible for the abortion of Kuala’s child.

In the middle of the story, it was found out that Kuala bears the child of Berto, so they took Kuala and told Berto not to go anywhere near Kuala. The movie ends when Kuala was about to give labor to her child so she sneaked out of the house to find Berto, he then went to ask for help from Dr. Ortega but he refused so Berto threatened him, this caused disturbance to the town, when they were about to reach Kuala, the policemen shot Berto and he died. Again, I love this movie; I like it even more than the first movie we saw which is Himala.

I think the movie had a good introduction because it made me want to know what it was going to be about. I also gained interest because of the main character, Christopher De Leon, because I’ve always like him as an actor and I like him even more now after I saw this film. One thing I didn’t like about the film is that it takes quite a long time before another important thing happens, the story was quite slow; Another thing I didn’t like about the movie are the sound effects, I don’t think the transition of sounds were quite polished because in some scenes, it just pops out then it stops without this fading effect.

But then, I think the movie clearly showed the issues it wanted to highlight. The first, is discrimination; On Kuala, when she was in the restaurant and she was eating the leftovers, she was sent away because she’s crazy, she stinks because she hadn’t taken a bath for days, another is when Junior and his friends were taking a swim on the lake, they pushed her in to the water, another is during the funeral when they made her drink and then they made fun of her.

Berto was also discriminated throughout the whole film; He wasn’t allowed to go in the cabaret because he’s a leper and they thought that he would infect the girls working there. But then, even though Berto suffered from how he was treated by people, the film showed that his personality was not affected by this, he still became a good person, able to help and love another person such as Kuala. The film also showed how rich people had more benefits in life, like, getting the girls they wanted or being more respected by the people around them, but then, these rich people think that they’re more ducated but don’t act as if they are, they only make fun of other people who they think are less of a person than they are because they are not from the same social standing, which, personally I think is stupid, because, they should be the one that understands the state of the poorer people. But then, the film showed that not all rich people are like these, in the character of Junior who helped Kuala and Berto all throughout the movie. Personally, after having watched this movie, it became clear to me that being humane and helping other people is more important than living up to the expectations of the people from your social class.

What is money and all those benefits you get if you don’t put them to good use.

What is money and all those benefits you get if you don’t put them to good use. hysteria to the people, which made those people worship her more than the Virgin Mary herself, to think that, her, being delusional, had caused the death of many people including one of her best friends, it also caused the closing of the business of another friend of hers because the people believed in Elsa so much that they would do anything she says. MISTERYO NG HAPIS Misteryo ng Hapis is all about a man who was traumatized by the experiences he had as a child.

The short film had minimal lines, but still, it showed the plot and sent a clear message and I guess that’s what makes this movie great. Personally, I was inclined to the film because I was able to relate to it, though, my parents are not like that, I once experienced being bullied by my schoolmates and I know how much that experience changes you as a person. In his case, he was bullied by his father because he was gay, and I totally understand why his rage towards his father never got to cool down.

The short film had few characters, but then, I guess the plot did not need a lot to show the message of the story. The main character’s dramatic problem was shown evidently and also the premise of the film was stated remarkably, I don’t know if I’m correct, but based on my view, the point was to give us a message that we should be careful about the things that we say and do to other people because people take it in differently and we may not know how much it affects them. But all in all, I guess the movie had a good creenplay. Now on the cinematography, the cinema work is good too, the lighting was just right and it definitely added to the total impact of the movie to the audience. The production design was goo because everything seemed right for the movie, except, I guess, they could have been more “bongga” with the costumes especially in the scenes wherein there was this performer. I like the sound, unlike what my other classmate said. I did not think it was creepy; I positively think that it was appropriate to the whole film.

Again, the dialogue was short but it was just enough to explain the whole plot. The sound effects and ambient sound are also good. With the acting of the actors, it was good but I think the main character lacked something when he was having his moment, the time when he was putting lipstick all over his face, I guess he could have broken down a bit more. But all in all, I think the director did a great job on executing this short film. MISTERYO NG HAPIS Misteryo ng Hapis is all about a man who was traumatized by the experiences he had as a child.

We were tasked to listen to a talk one afternoon on the verge of the week before lantern parade, being a student from the College of Fine Arts, this was a very important week wherein time was of great importance that’s why staying in the room during that afternoon was quite a challenge for me. When I entered the room, I became quite anti-social and looked for a space wherein I would not be disturbed then I brought out my unfinished plate and started doing it, since, the talk hadn’t started yet. A few minutes went by and they called out the 1st person to give a talk and then he started alking about quite interesting topics; it even made me put aside my plate and start really listening. The first part, he started talking about this psychological study that they made among the viewers of these 2 noon time shows and they focused on the angle of why the other noon time show was prevailing over the other; about social cognition, or in other words it focused on understanding how people think about others and how that in turn influences their behavior, feelings and social interactions.

The study showed that many factors affect a person’s preference; that the host’s physical appearance, the show’s sound effects, the show’s music and the angle shots contribute. And from that, they concluded that the show’s cinematography, and not just the aesthetics, can affect the overall impact of the show to its audience. During the second part, he talked about movie trailers. It was all about, again, cinematography, and if trailers played a part on whether more people will be induced to watched the movie.

Their study showed that great camera work, lighting, production design and editing of the trailer affect people’s perception about the film, but then, from there enters a thing in film which we call the star system. Star system is the practice of favoring individuals who have become famous and popular. So, for example, there’s this great trailer of an action movie, but then, they would put that aside if they do not know the lead actor in the film because people would prefer watching it if Robin Padilla played the lead instead of another actor that’s not as well known.

But, putting this so called Star System aside, the study showed, as they modified the trailers, they can shift people’s choices by having different music, lighting and most of all, editing. And in their study, they also concluded that in a trailer or movie, what matters most is not the entirety, but its peak and its end. It’s a shame that I wasn’t able to finish the whole talk, but I am satisfied with what I have learned from it.

To finish this off, I have realized that media, indeed, is very powerful. The way people present themselves in front of the camera, the way they behave and even the way they dress up can affect people’s liking towards you. It is quite a sad reality that your looks also play a big part but then having a good cinematographer can also save you to bits.

SISTERAKAS Sisterakas is one of the official entries during the 2012 MMFF. The movie was directed by Wenn Deramas and the roles were played by whopping actors and actresses namely Ai Ai Delas Alas, Vice Ganda, Kathryn Bernardo, Daniel Padilla, Xiriel Manabat and Kris Aquino.

Wenn Deramas is definitely a certified box-office director having worked in the industry for years and having directed films as great as Tanging Ina, Mula sa Puso, Marina and many more. With those achievements, I give him great respect, but I still couldn’t ingest how this movie, Sisterakas, is definitely a letdown. Even though it has set a record of having the highest single day earning for any Filipino film with 40. 7 Million last Christmas, I believe that good publicity and Star System have played a good role on the success of this movie.

I think that there was a lack of smoothness on the continuity of the plot, rather, it had too many stories all bunged up in one movie. I think that it lacked the expected twists and turns and that the jokes were quite clichéd. And then with the Star System, as it’s said in the movie’s trailer, with Vice Ganda whose a phenomenal box-office star; Kris Aquino the Queen of All Media; Ai Ai Delas Alas the Comedy Box-office Queen; and Daniel Padilla and Kathryn Bernardo the couple of the year; I mean, who wouldn’t watch that, right?

The story was quite shallow, but then I guess that’s the thing that sells to Filipino viewers; why watch a comedy when you still have to think to get the story, right? I guess the purpose of watching a comedy is to have a good laugh and maybe that’s why they didn’t give much emphasis on creating a plot with sense. Also, I think that the subplot of Daniel Padilla and Kathryn Bernardo’s love life was quite unnecessary. I guess I’m being too hard on the movie; maybe it’s just not my preference because I am not accustomed to watching Filipino comedies or any comedies at all SISTERAKAS

I guess I’m being too hard on the movie; maybe it’s just not my preference because I am not accustomed to watching Filipino comedies or any comedies at all ONE MORE TRY Hands down to the makers, actors and actresses of this one! During the past year, there has been a lot of movies produced which featured the issue of infidelity, namely ‘No Other Woman’, ‘A Secret Affair’, ‘A Beautiful Affair’ and ‘The Mistress’, which personally, I think have all been about the same things.

The wife getting into a nasty catfight with the mistress then there’s always this tactless mother to give out spoofs and supposedly memorable lines, the husband has to give up something important in his life then all comes to a happy ending wherein the husband and wife gets together and the mistress also lives a good life. But then, even though this movie, One More Try, also contained the subject of cheating, it gave out an interesting twist plus the characters were played by outstanding actors and actresses who made the movie, too, totally stand out.

As I have said, the movie is no typical ‘mistress movie’, it was about this girl (Angel Locsin) who had a child with his previous boyfriend (Dingdong Dantes) but she didn’t know that she was pregnant until after she learned that Dingdong has another girlfriend in Manila and that she was then a mistress; she went on with her life and five or six years later, she had to look for her child’s father because he’s the only one who can help the child with his disease.

All was fine until the issue of Angel having to have sex with Dingdong because he was now married (with Angelica Panganiban) and angel also has a boyfriend (Zanjoe Marudo) and from there started the fight between Angel and Angelica because Angel was willing to do everything for her child, even to seduce Dingdong, which she did, because Angelica did not agree with that option. I guess the story’s too long if I summarize it here, so I won’t. But I hope it’s obvious how I cannot contain my feelings for this movie.

Everything, for me, was perfect; from the script to the delivery, the lighting and the camerawork and the editing and the timing of the cues of the theme song. All in all, I love the movie. It’s a movie I could watch over and over again and I recommend other people to watch it too. ONE MORE TRY Hands down to the makers, actors and actresses of this one!

I guess the story’s too long if I summarize it here, so I won’t. But I hope it’s obvious how I cannot contain my feelings for this movie.

Everything, for me, was perfect; from the script to the delivery, the lighting and the camerawork and the editing and the timing of the cues of the theme song. All in all, I love the movie. It’s a movie I could watch over and over again and I recommend other people to watch it too. KAKABA KABA KA BA? Kakaba kaba ka ba is a musical comedy produces during the 1980’s whose lead roles were played by Christopher de Leon, Charo Santos-Concio, Jay Ilagan and Sandy Andolong under the direction of Mike De leon.

I have learned that this film has received many awards but I have say that this is not my kind of movie. I am not a fan of comedy films which includes this one. I think it is just right to give credit to the originality of this movie, not once have I seen a movie with a story like this, also that it is not purely comedy but that it also tackles a social problem here in our country which is the illegal trade of drugs made by some of the foreign countries and their so-so conspiracy with the church; And that they were in charge of us.

I also think that the dramatic problem was greatly established, and that’s one of the important things for the screenplay. I think that the camera work of this film is quite flat because the movie was just full of long shots. I will have to say that I was not enthralled by this film, I found it boring and I think that the plots each scene was too slow that I can already guess what was going to happen next. I also think that they were exaggerated with the stereotyping of the Japanese and Chinese people, with each scene pressing harder that this country is like this, I guess it just became cliché and corny.

I also don’t see the relevance of the Tinapay song number to the movie; I guess the movie could have done well without that (but I have to admit that it was a very catchy song). All in all, I did not like the movie that much but I think you have to watch it for yourself for it is known as one of the greatest comedies in history. KAKABA KABA KA BA?

TTHEY CALL HER…CLEOPATRA WONG “She purrs like a kitten and makes love like a siren. This side of the pacific, she is the meanest, deadliest and sexiest secret agent. ”

This movie is all about a fabulous girl who turns out to be a top sheriff; she teams up with her Filipino counterpart to bust an operation that looms several nations with liquidation. This movie turns out to be an action-packed adventure. They say that this movie’s supposed to combine element of Hong Kong action movies and Bond films in order to make a female Asian counterpart of Cleopatra jones, in which they call the foreign films as their inspiration, but then I think that it turned out totally unoriginal and pretentious.

I think that the girl who played the role obviously lacked fighting skills and that she was just another pretty girl who can strike a badass look and has oozing sex appeal. I also wasn’t convinced of the special effects especially the exaggerated jumps from the floor to the roof because I think that if they wanted it to be as high quality as the bond films, I guess they should have taken it more seriously and not have made bloopers in the movie; like in the scene wherein she was surrounded by many men who’s supposedly god at Kung Fu but then she was able to beat them all up without a scratch on her body.

I also think that the scenes were too slow and that it didn’t even register to me that it was the climax already. I also didn’t get why she had to wear very skimpy outfits when she had to battle also with full make-up and well-fixed hair.
