It’s almost Christmas, and I can’t wait for our Noche Buena, hope there’s Lechon in our table! I love this season, even if the climate is cold, the people are so warm! During this time too, I have so many work load which I am very thankful! What excites me with this season is the Metro Manila Film Festival. I already told you how we love watching movies on our weekend dates. At least once a month we watch movie together, and my son love the experiences! We just recently watched the Super Parental Guardians weeks ago, and the movie is so hilarious! I love the humor of Vice Ganda and the two kids. Coco Martin is a hunk; please don’t tell my hubby about it! The moment I heard that the film is not included in the MMFF 2016, I am a little bit sad but at the same time excited because the screening dates are sooner and we don’t have to wait for Christmas.
I find all the movies in MMFF 2016 as excellent films. Although I am a little bit surprised that the usual movies are not included in the said festival. After watching the trailers for the films, I still can’t decide which movies we will watch as we cannot afford to watch all of them but I already have some lineups. You can also help me decide or these trailer reviews might help you to decide which ones are better. Let’s see which movies will get the loudest applaud from the audience, and I will do the review in alphabetical order, and it has no bearing at all!
Movie #1: Ang Babae Sa Septic Tank 2: Forever Is Not Enough
I love that Hugot Lupasay level! Eugene Domingo is Eugene Domingo, and no one can steal that crown on her! I like the first movie, so I think there is no way that I will not like this one. The movie is so cute, and I am so glad that there is a part two, I will watch this but not with my son.
Movie #2: Die Beautiful
The movie is so intriguing! I love the makeup transformation of Paolo Ballesteros; he is so talented. I can sense that the movie is a mixed of drama, comedy, and even horror! I love that last scene, although it is a little bit creepy to take a photo beside a corpse inside a coffin.
Movie #3: Kabisera
My grandma loves Nora Aunor. The movie seems more intriguing and full of suspense. I am so surprised that it is based on a true story, I can sense a political issue here. I can’t imagine it happening to my family!
Movie #4: Oro
Based on the trailer, sounds like another political movie. I hate how corrupt politicians are hunger for power, but I salute those who are patriotic. This movie looks so promising.
Movie #5: Saving Sally
The movie is so interesting! Hubby and I are looking forward to watching it. Probably because we are both born in a generation who loves anime. The first time I saw the trailer, I giggled! The animation is so interesting too, tons of hard work!
Movie #6: Seklusyon
I may need to ask my cousin about Catholic rituals. The movie is so intriguing; I have goose bumps when I am watching the trailer. I can’t afford to watch it alone, may need some friends along. I heard so many miracles happened, but I haven’t witnessed any and I have no interest if it will lead me to a true to life horror, yikes!
Movie #7: Sunday Beauty Queen
A documentary type of movie in MMFF?! Wow, that’s new! Anyways, this MMFF is surprising. I like the genre of this movie. It is nice to know that there are films like this who tell us the stories behind OFW’s successes and sacrifices.
Movie #8: Vince & Kath & James
I am an avid fan of the text series that has been viral to FB about Vince and Kath, so I can’t wait to see this movie. Although, there are some alterations. The movie is very millennial type! The trailer makes me kilig, and I will surely watch this movie.
How about you? What are the movies in the upcoming MMFF 2016 you will most likely to watch? I think all of them deserve being in the festival. Now, I can’t wait which movie will hit the #1 in blockbuster! See you at theaters this coming Christmas! I think, Christmas in Pinas is never complete without watching a movie together with loved ones. For our family, it has been a tradition, and when we were younger, all of us cousins are watching our preferred movies.
