ur Space raises several relationship issues — friendship, romance and the fine line in between. I appreciated the repartee but by its end I was just as tired about the argument as the characters were. The cinematography was on point. The dialogue was intelligent but by its end, it left me more frustrated than satisfied. Finally, it was over. It felt like I was the one stepping out of a bad breakup. Good one, director David Olson and screenwriter Joem Antonio.
Its intended to be funny, true. But I was unsure what message filmmaker Kevin Mayuga wanted to get across. Humor can be kind of dangerous when it is taken out of context. Was the film promoting drugs as a means to escape the toils of life? Even though seeing their maid passed out from her high made the kids realize how they put her through the ringer, leading to their remorse and reform, was the proper ending to bond over a weed session?
It was a beautiful tribute to one of our nation’s heroes. Director Myra Aquino deserves much praise for this respectful and compelling account of Kapampangan history. Congrats!
Cinematography-wise, pacing-wise and storytelling wise, it was a lot of fun, especially with the filmmaker’s choice of background music that gave the film a eclectic retro feel. It was a well crafted film although it was also tinted with the director’s views. Again, its not going to be a film for everybody. So if you are sensitive about the issue of religion or faith, you might want to brace yourself before sitting down to watch Kids on Fire.
All in all, Ang Pagdadalaga ni Lola Mayumi was an effective tongue in cheek take on sex, virginity and everything in between. Bottom line, see a therapist when you need to so you don’t spend close to P10,000 for services not rendered. LOL.
additional scenes could have helped with telling a fuller, more complete tale. Still a good effort from director James Fajardo.
All in all, I loved that Crossing, like its title, straddled the gray area that connected good and evil, black and white. In its quiet approach, it compelled the viewers’ mind to run rampant with possibilities. This is something quite astounding to accomplish in such a short period.
It’s a good takeaway, that despite our sense of isolation, we can reach out to others and ease our burdens as we deal with this challenge together. Despite its heavy content, Maski Papano was fun. It was simple yet it held a power borne from creativity. I loved it. Congrats directors Che Tagyamon And Glen
It has become somewhat of a tradition for local fastfood chain Jollibee to release short stories to celebrate […]
Hilom was simple, at the same time complicated. It was able to deal with such a complicated issue through the innocent eyes of children, where right and wrong is based on gut feel. Love is love, no ifs, no buts, and Andres and Gael are perfect examples of unconditional love that we could learn from.
