(Tagalog with English subtitles) The Filipino equivalent to Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure. On his hospital bed, a dying uncle gives final instructions to his two nephews: deliver a brown bag in exchange for a package. This sets into motion a ton of clever dialogue, sex jokes and satiric parodies that wink at the audience. Written by
i have just watched the movie this morning during our Philippine literature Schedule as a part of the said subject...of course, we are required to watch it for a reaction paper...
before watching the movie, i got lots of expectations with it because i have heard so many good comments from it's trailer and promotions about the twist that this film brought in the field of Filipino movie but i got a little disappointed when i finally watched the film only this morning...
my expectations regarding the film were not met that much though the visual effects and the different shots of the camera used were kinda different and sophisticated compared to other Pinoy movies, still the story line did not satisfy me for the reason that there is really no story that was made! it is a mere promotion and showing of the Philippine culture and setting nowadays. the flow of the film is creative but that creativity was ruined by the poor story as what i have said earlier! but the greatest factor that disappointed me is that i know who the director is and i know his great capacities but he was not able to exhibit all of these in this film maybe because of too much exaggeration of every nonsense scenes that becomes more dominant than those scenes in this film which has sense.there are parts of the movie that really happens today in our society but i am kinda sad because those things were not pointed out in a more noticeable manner in the movie but instead, those less important scenes were greatly given emphasized by the film makers.
when i heard the title "Pinoy Blonde" before, i am really expecting it to be a highly intellectual film but after the moment that i watched it, i think it is just a simple modification and experimentation in the field of Philippine movie industry regarding the presentation of different Filipino stuffs and culture.
the efforts are great with its star studded extras and leading characters but the manner of portraying significant things are kinda poor.i am expecting deeper things to discover in every settings in the film but in the end, it just ended up with a simple nothing without leaving any intellectual satisfaction regarding of the movie's real point of view. that's all!
