To enjoy this movie, the best advice I could give perhaps, is to view it as its own movie instead of a remake. Miracle in Cell No. 7 holds a different kind of magic. One that is unusual for the season but one that will leave a mark on one’s heart.
For now, I would have to say that the “Ulan” trailer succeeded in generating interest in its intriguing concept. It piques curiosity while keeping its audiences excited about the mysterious premise of the film. Whether the build up to the mystery would pay off for the film of not, audiences will find out on March 13 when the film releases on Philippine theaters. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that it does.
All in all, Aurora was more hype than substance. While it was not entirely bad, I was not blown away by this horror movie. Huge credit though to the cinematography and editing but the pacing was too snail paced to get me excited at any point of the film. So, if you don’t fall asleep from the lengthy dialogue and the depressing cloud that Leana carries around with her everywhere she goes, congrats to you. Patience is a virtue for this flick but I wasn’t sure that the payoff was equal to the set up. In the end, I don’t know if it was a more effective social commentary than a horror.
All in all, Never Not Love You is spot on. It took a risk in veering away from the typical formula of previous Jadine movies but it was a risk that paid off. From the great script, to the musical score that emphasized every phase of the relationship, to the cinematography that made viewers appreciate the beauty of London and Makati at night, to the effective portrayal of James and Nadine which made up 80 percent of the movie. It all came together as one of Jadine and Jadaone’s best collaborations yet.
