Definitely not the best of Philippine Cinema for 2009
2 November 2009 | by See all my reviews

Cmon out of all the releases this year, I refuse to believe that this is the most fitting movie to represent Philippine Cinema in one of the most prestigious award giving body in the world.

Seriously? It's a joke. Although I would agree that the premise of the movie was a great idea although not entirely original. But it stops there, everything else FAILED... miserably. The acting was average at best. The screenplay was crap, I could have totally watched the movie in fast forward and tell the story in 15 minutes. Direction was all over. There was not even one redeeming factor in the movie that I could think of. And saying that this is the best movie to represent Philippine Cinema... unforgivable failure.

OK fine, I get it that some conservative members of the academy wants a movie that will feature the traditions and the local culture but to make it the ONLY criteria, you should have sent a travelogue or a TVC of the Department of Tourism.
