Ironies Of Filipino Movies

I know i have been a huge supporter of foreign films and that i can really explain. I just find Filipino movies so ironic. It seems like their sales depends much more on the popularity of their stars, not about the whole story. And that fact, is a major downfall for me as a Filipino. I can even count on my fingers how many Filipinos i have watched that had marked on my mind, I guess it was only KimmyDora.

I am about to share to you my observations on Filipino movies. (it can be applied on tv shows also)

1. Kapag naaksidente yung bida, laging nasasagip. Kesyo sumabog na yung buong katawan niya, buhay pa siya sa dulo.
2. Kapag yung dalwang bida, especially the loveteams, magkatalikuran na nga hidi pa magkikita.
3. Kahit babae lang yung bida, hindi siya mautakan or matalo ng lalaking bida.
4. Laging nagkakainlove-an ang mga magkakaibigan.
5. Kapag may fight scene, bago tumira ang sinoman, magsasalita muna ng mahaba.
6. Ang mga kidnappers, laging nasa warehouse. Yung bang tip na may mga bakal na kakalansing kapag natapakan ng bida tapos mahuhuli siya.
7. Ang pagsabo, laging nasa likod.
8. Kahit anong paulan ng bala ng kalaban, hindi tinatamaan ang bida. Lalo na kung si FPJ ka.
9. Last wish bago mamatay ang bida.
10. Talaga namang love comes unexpectedly. Kahit janitor ka pa.
11. Kapag nagkabanggaan ang lalaki at babae. Naku, alam na.
12. Laging nadadamay ang pamilya/syota ng superheroes.
13. Against all odds lagi ang drama ng magsing-irog.
14. Laging huli dumating ang pulis.


I am not against Filipino movies. I in fact, support independent films. Its just that I am really not a fan of those big ones, yeah, those who can advertise well and has the money to buy all resources. Is the film industry running out of good writers?

Or i it just they are all afraid to take risks? Blah blah.

On the other hand, cheers for Filipino Independent movies! They had never failed to giveour country pride, honor, and good stories! I wonder if the movie "Noy" of Coco Martin would be as good as the "Kinatay". Well i hope so.

  2. filipino movies are really are like that. though meron naman na talagang maganda yung story. pero siguro yun na nga kase tlga yung parang palatandaan na pilipino yung movie.

    anyway, i dont really like indie films. most of them have inappropriate scenes. but well, their stories are really good, at nagpapakita ng totoong ngyayare sa mundo, but i cant still stand watching them, like the movie "katay" you mentioned. how can i possibly stand watching a girl getting raped then chopped? >_<
