    Mary, Marry Me is largely just drivel. Ugh. It’s very reminiscent of a typical Pinoy rom-com, but not one of the good ones mind you, which is especially disappointing when I found out it was produced by Ten17P, who I have amazing respect for after seeing last year’s Siargao. The jokes were unbelievably corny and cringe-worthy, the acting was trite at best, and the story was as predictable as ever. I didn’t believe that the cast had any chemistry, and even the blooper reel at the end credits wasn’t funny. Smh. Barely 2⭐️ over 5.

    Aurora deserves an award for sound. It’s very Hollywood, very dramatic and suspenseful, and sets the movie on the right note from the get go. Cinematography isn’t bad either. The ever gorgeous (even with little to no make up) Anne Curtis’ shots were just as haunting yet beautiful as the landscape. She also carried the movie quite well. I think where this movie had the most problems is in the story. It got kind of muddled and convoluted somewhere in the middle towards the end. Also, spoiler, there’s hardly any horror scenes; the movie having to rely mostly on cinematography and sound to... Read more

    I loved it. It’s the first time I’ve seen an actual Filipino musical. I didn’t even know we were capable of producing such kinds of movies! It was almost like watching a play. The quality of Ang Larawan is so good, it’s comparable to foreign musicals. The production, the costumes, the music; everything was wonderful to watch. And I loved how, even though it was set in the past, it wasn’t exactly about the country’s history like other period pieces. It was just this story about two sisters set during that time, and how their lives were trapped by the pressures that come with having ... Read more

    PG

    This movie made me into a fan of Paul Soriano. It made me want to go to Siargao, made me miss the beach. It made me wanna travel, and maybe even vlog about it. It made me wanna try surfing again. It was just absolutely, unbelievably beautiful. Truthfully, the story dragged a little. Although that seems to be the norm by indie film standards anyway, so it wasn’t that big of an issue. (Not a connoisseur here, so I really wouldn’t know.) The slow-paced story is the only flaw to what would’ve otherwise been a perfect movie. Because really, everything else was amazing, and more than made up ... Read more

    I don’t really get how the rating of this movie isn’t any higher because I thought it was fantastic. What a great year for Philippine cinema. This movie felt a little bit like an indie movie. It’s not your typical Star Cinema rom-com. It gets a solid 4 rating for me for sure, if not more. The cinematography is absolutely beautiful, and it showed our city in such beautiful, picturesque light. Although sometimes I got confused with the timeline. It felt like the movie was set in the seventies from the beginning. I think maybe it needed more modern touches to make it seem like it was actua... Read more
