Watching movies in theaters is still the best
LIVE FEED By Bibsy M. Carballo (The Philippine Star) Updated May 21, 2012
Last May 2, we wrote about a resurgence of live movie watching in theaters after which we received a lot of e-mails from people agreeing with the observation. Today, the practice continues albeit with less success income-wise due to competition from worldwide blockbusters like The Avengers. During this period, we watched The Mommy Returns, Every Breath You Take, 21 Jump Street, American Pie Reunion and Dark Shadows.
On the local front, all we can say and we’ve said this before, thank heavens for a Mother Lily Monteverde whose love for Filipino movies makes her go out on a limb to keep the industry alive. The Mommy Returns pays tribute to The Mummy Returns (the Brendan Fraser film wherein a mummy wakes up and terrorizes his enemies), although it has nothing in common with the US film except that it was shown in Manila in May 2001, and Mother’s feng shui could have been at work. With big-name brands like Pokwang, Gabby Concepcion and Ruffa Gutierrez, with Joel Lamangan at the helm, Mommy Returns has a dead Pokwang coming back to earth as a ghost to frighten Ruffa out of the family.
Meanwhile, we have been among those hoping the best for Star Cinema’s Every Breath U Take (Piolo Pascual and Angelica Panganiban), that its results help ease whatever pain Piolo must be going through silently. Latest word is positive. A good person like Piolo and a good film deserve its dues. The film is a delightful package that utilizes Angelica’s comic flair to the hilt, and offers Piolo more opportunity to do comedy and action apart from the drama and romance component. Ryan Bang in his introductory role is a riot. And director Mae Cruz as usual overdoes herself in every picture she helms.
We find ourselves once again praying earnestly that another Star Cinema film Born to Love You scheduled for release on May 30 makes it at the box office. After all, it is the first time for Star Power champion Angeline Quinto to appear in the movies, first for lead actor Coco Martin to do a romance film, first movie for veteran teleserye director Jerome Pobocan, but then again, there might be some secret in bringing these first-timers together.
