MMFF 2008

I was able to watch four films from the recent Metro Manila Film Festival, which is an annual tradition in the Philippines. Here's how I rank them,

1. Ang Tanging Ina Ninyong Lahat
  • Hilarious. I haven't seen the first one, but it won't matter much. I'm not a big fan of AiAi, and still not, as most of the funny quips from the movie came from Eugene Domingo, who should have a movie of her own. No wonder this topped the box office chart.
2. One Night Only
  • Surprisingly a very nice movie. It is well-written, having the "six degrees of separation," or shall we say sex degrees, concept. Alessandra De Rossi is a stunner. And Manilyn Reynes as a lesbian will surely crack you up! For some reason, I'm somewhat disgusted with Chokoleit and Joross Gamboa. I dunno, maybe the image of Chokoleit performing fellatio to Joross gives me the creeps.
3. Shake, Rattle & Roll X
  • One word: Nieves.
4. Desperadas 2
  • Two words: Luga Luda.

I refused to watch the other films:

1. Magkaibigan
  • Two words: Jinggoy Estrada.
2. Baler
  • Not feeling this one.
3. Dayo
4. Iskul Bukol
  • Why watch when there's Eat Bulaga?


  1. Tanging ina is still worth watching, chris? I was so longing to watch the movie, though many have said that it's not worth it, is it true?

  2. thanks for passing by on my site...i'm not so good in writing but it is a good way for me to spend my time wisely.

  3. I only watched Tanging Ina and One Night Only. The former pales in comparison with the first though it earned more in the box office. The latter did not impress me much.

  4. Well, Tanging Ina is typical pinoy comedy. Not really much substance, but kinda fun to watch. Though don't expect much in terms of technicality. I watched it because I'm a Eugene Domingo fan *cough*biased*cough*

  5. Haha! I enjoyed your very short comments on those MMFF Films...

    Well, ang napapanood ko pa lang ay
    > SRRX, tama ka... Nieves talaga sila!
    > Ang Tanging Ina Ninyong Lahat... Hilarious Movie talaga! Ang sakit ng tiyan ko because of this...
    > Iskul Bukol... Maraming hindi nakakatuwang jokes... Maybe masyado nang luma...
    > Dayo... I Love Cartoons... Suportahan na lang natin ito... Kasi ang laki ng effort!

    Lets adventure!

  6. Some (stupid) questions:

    Ano ibig sabihin ng "Nieves talaga sila?"
    Kala ko Dayo is cartoons, bat si Regine Tolentino and Ronnie Ricketts nasa movie poster?

    Thank you nga pala for dropping by my site. May pusa ka din?
