I rarely watch Filipino movies nowadays because they're usually predictable and pretty much follow the same formulas for a particular genre. When I do sit down to watch one, it's usually so I can laugh at how bad it is and so I can annoy the other people watching by telling what's going to happen next - like I said, Filipino movies are predictable.
Anyway, I was surprised by Jologs. I didn't expect much from it given the title. But as the story (or stories) developed, I was just completely hooked. Although the style was obviously Pulp Fiction-influenced, the actually story itself was different and very good on its own right. Wow, hardly any stupid, corny out-of-place jokes that they milk to death and spend a great deal of time explaining why its funny in case the viewer didn't get it.
Acting was great too - I've always felt that there are a lot of good Filipino actors but the movies they make just plain suck. I'm proud to recommend this movie to anyone.
