2007 MMFF: Fearless Forecast (Part 1)

(References: clickthecity, pep.ph, journal.com, sureseats.com, bomboradyo.com, smcinema.com)

Pasko na naman. Pretty soon the cinema houses here in the Philipines will stop showing foreign films. Why? Well, of course it’s because of the Metro Manila Film Festival.

Unlike the previous MMFF’s, this year’s festival is not dominated by fantasy and horror films (Whew! Thank goodness). Now you’ll be able to enjoy different genres and won’t be caught trapped in line in ticket booths with a bunch of whining kids.
 Six films have been pre-selected already to comprise the first set of movies to be shown on December 25Vic and Kristine Hermosa. Two of these six are entries coming from the Monteverdes namely Shake Rattle and Roll 9, and Bahay Kubo.

Well, what are we waiting for? Isa-isahin na natin ang kapalaran ng mga pelikulang ito.

Siyempre pa, unahin na natin ang anim na ipapalabas sa December 25.

Enteng Kabisote 4:Okay Ka Fairy Ko (The Beginning of a Legend)

Produced by: OctoArts Films and M-Zet TV Productions
Director: Tony Y. Reyes
Main Cast: Vic Sotto, Kristine Hermosa, Aiza Seguerra, Oyo Boy Sotto, Jose Manalo, and Joey de Leon
Plot: Gaya ng ibang banyagang pelikula, sa Enteng Kabisote 4 ipapakita ang pinaka-umpisa ng kwento nina Enteng at ng Engkantada. Dito sa pelikulang ito malamang ay masagot na ang mga tanong ninyo sa mga nakaraang Enteng Kabisote. 
Strengths: Bigger named stars like Jomari Yllana, Ian Veneracion, Ian de Leon, Michael de Mesa, Francine Prieto
Possible Weak Points: Bigger scope means longer viewing time equals probable boredome.
To watch out for: New ‘kontrabida’ (Sorry but Satana raw is OUT) and better special effects.
*** Surely, pumatok sa takilya ang Enteng Kabisote 1,2 and 3 pero uubra pa rin kaya ito sa ikaapat na pagkakataon? Mukhang nanganganib nang makuha nito ang Best Picture lalo pa at talaga namang may laban din sa kategoryang ito ang “Resiklo”

Resiklo

Produced by: IMUS PRODUCTIONS and IGNITE MEDIA INC.
Director: MARK A. REYES, dgpi
Main Cast: Ramon “Bong” Revilla Jr., Jennylyn Mercado, Katrina Halili, and Dingdong Dantes Resiklo

Plot: Taong 2021, sinakop ng mga alien ang buong planeta. Sa Pilipinas, isang grupo ng mga nakaligtas sa pagsalakay ang nakatuklas kung ano talaga ang pakay ng mga alien. Dahil dito, napagkasunduan nilang gumawa ng mga robot na tatalo sa mga kalaban sa pamamagitan ng mga recycled materials. At doon nagsimula ang digmaan upang masagip ang sangkatauhan.
Strengths: Big budget (meaning grand special effects) and internet presence
Possible Weak Points: Fanatics of Transformers might be annoyed of how they tried to copy the film, which means, lesser viewers.
To watch out for: Definitely the robots and the sexy costumes (if there will be any).
*** Ang pinaka-mahigpit na kalaban ni Enteng Kabisote pero maungusan nga kaya niya ito sa takilya at makuha ang Best Picture. Well, sa puspusang pag-ppromote nito sa internet at sa simpatya ng mga bata, malamang pwede.

Sakal, Sakali, Saklolo

Produced by: Star Cinema
Director: Jose Javier Reyes
Main Cast: Judy Ann Santos, Ryan Agoncillo, Gina Pareño, Gloria Diaz, Arial Ureta
Plot: Sakal, Sakali, Saklolo ay ang katuloy ng Kasal, Kasali, Kasalo, ang isa sa mga top grosser na pelikula noong nakaraang taon. Sakal, Sakali, Saklolo Cast
Ipinapakita ngayon ang sa sequel ang mga karanasan nina Jed (Ryan Agoncillo) at Angie (Judy Ann Santos) ang kanilang mga karanasan bilang mga magulang. Napagtanto nila na mahirap pala magpalaki ng anak. Dumating ang punto na kinailangan nila mangibang bansa at iwan ang anak sa pangangalaga ng mga magulang at mga kaibigan. At doon na nga nagsimula ang problema.
Strengths: Due to many awards that the previous movie garnered, people will surely be looking forward to this movie. MORE VIEWERS.
Possible Weak Points: Too mushy scenes; possible korni punchlines
To watch out for: Funny scenes from Jed and Angie’s mothers; kilig moments from the real-life sweethearts; why it is Rated A.
*** Pwede pang makuha ng pelikulang ito ang Best Picture pero kalaban pa rin niya ang Enteng Kabisote gayundin ang Resiklo. Medyo mahihirapan din si Judy Ann na mapanatiling kanya ang Best Actress dahil sa presensya ni Maria (Maricel Soriano).
