It’s the film fest season.
Yet I’m wondering what Pinoy films I should see in movieworld or cinema.
Will I be shaken, rattled, and rolled by the horrifying trilogy of Shake, Rattle and Roll 13? Will the unlucky number prove horrific?
So it comes in threes. First stop Rain, Rain Go Away promises a panic/fear of the great flood and drowning of course, and that’s some real life deal with our experience with nature’s fury from Frank or Ondoy or the latest Sendong via the imagination of director Chris Martinez. What a wrong timing for the stressed and traumatic moviegoers? But will Eugene Domingo be scared than tickled this time?
The second episode Tamawo or maligno to city folks brings to life a dead uncle caretaker of a provincial ranch where a man, his wife (Zanjoe Marudo and Maricar Reyes are a sexy couple don’t you think?) and stepson (the bibo Bugoy Cariño) encounter the supernatural. The territorial and privacy message and lessons of respect are what director Richard Somes tries to project.
Finally the Parola episode brags of unique visuals from Director Jerrold Tarog who did the sultry Aswang Lovi Poe and Paulo Avelino with abs. I’m wondering what other sexy stars Ina Raymundo and Ara Mina will be doing?
Hope this is not a second rate as the title speaks of – Segunda Mano – and the tandem of Kris Aquino and Dingdong Dantes clicks with the wonders of director Joyce Bernal. Still wondering what the daring Angelica Panganiban will be doing. Will it draw the nega vibes from owning prized possessions and extravagance of LV (lumang vag) and UK (ukay-ukay) items? One thing I’m sure is Krissy having the same loud and long shout!
My Househusband as the title suggests top-bill real life couple Juday and Ryan – so what else is new direk Joey Reyes? Bring in Eugene Domingo to the picture? Cheesy but funny or family-oriented just like that.
Another two for the road Enteng ng Ina Mo by both box office veterans, comedy queen Ai-ai delas Alas (with equally funny sidekick Eugene Domingo) bringing in her kapamilya and comedy king Vic Sotto tagging along his Eat Bulaga peers into a fantastic riot via direk Tony Reyes mixing the best of two worlds.
Another fantasy on its second run Panday 2 stars Senator Bong Revilla and leading lady Marian Rivera aims to give justice to special effects and brings visual spectacle to the next level via direk Mac Alejandre.
Some drama as the title says so Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow will be a tragic family story of love, loss and deception, do we need to say more or just expect something worthwhile from dramatic lead stars Maricel Soriano, Gabby Concepcion, Agot Isidro, Jericho Rosales, Dennis Trillo, Paulo Avelino, and sexy stars Lovi Poe, Carla Abellana, and Solenn Heussaff.
Sorry I’m already tired to write about Manila Kingpin: The Untold Story of Asiong Salonga (that’s already a mouthful for a title) starring Laguna Gov. ER Ejercito aka Jorge Estregan, Carla Abellana, out from rehab Baron Geisler and the famous tweeting Valerie Concepcion via direk Tikoy Aguiluz though his name was removed from credits for copyright issues. So it’s up for you for their story to be told.
Relax, see a movie and enjoy the show!
