    considering that the film wasn't submitted (?) to CEB, buo ang tax na binayad nito. or so i think. so compute mo yan...

    you missed a bit, it was submitted and rated "b", 65% rebate? hmmm, it would be safer to say na let's wait for the figures to come out dahil kung hindi kumita ang movie for sure, marami kang mababasa. hehhee. ang dami pa namang di kasundo sa press si marya. :D

    pag di kumita ang movie ni marya, malalaman mo yan dahil number one na magsusulat niyan si alfie lorenzo. heheh. he will gloat for sure just like what he did sa mila na ilang ulit niyang sinulat.

    really? it got a B rating? parang di ko nababasa...

    actually marami na ako nababasa na di siya kumita. may isa pa nga nagsabi na buti na lang daw nakabawi ang viva sa capt barbell. pero meron din naman nagsasabi na kumita.

    hindi ko naman sinasabi na flop yung movie e. pero tricky kasi when you say "kumita." all i'm saying is it probably didn't earn much kasi hindi naman siya blockbuster. unlike bridal shower na may staying power. hindi kasi porke marami nanood kumita na. ako feeling ko hindi gaano kumita ang mano po 2. considering na ang laki din ng production cost nito.

    pinaniniwalaan mo ba si alfie lorenzo? :lol: asus ang jologs! :lol:

    @renz

    *clap* *clap* brother dear..... *okay* and when u say staying power .. that means, palabas pa rin sa ibang mga sinehan at pinanonood. until now, showing pa rin ang FILIPINAS.

    and pls.... hinde puwedeng i-compare ang FILIPINAS sa BRIDAL SHOWER... dahil ang huli ang tipo ng pelikula na ginawa para kumita. wala namang kumukuwestion sa pagkakagawa ng Bridal Shower esp. sa mga Maricelians... ang pagkakaalam ko, si Luciam124 pa nga ang isa sa mga nagsabi na maganda ang pagkakagawa nito and she even congratulated Jeffrey Jeturian for making the film as funny and entertaining.. isa lang ang negative comment niya - hinde siya maka-relate at "kulang sa values".. which is true naman.. kung ikaw ay isang ordinaryong Filipina or babae, hinde mo basta makikita ang sarili mo sa pelikula... i think naging honest lang si Luciam124 sa pagsasabi ng opinion niya bilang isang ordinaryong moviegoer...

    ang filipinas hindi ginawa para kumita? sino ba ang inuulol mo? :lol: sa tingin mo bakit pagkalalaking artista ang kinuha sa filipinas? ang filipinas ay melodrama at akala ng producer dahil mahilig tayo sa melodrama, dudumugin ang filipinas. marami ang nalulugi sa maling akala. :lol:

    oo naman. tulad ng sabi ko lahat ng pelikula ginagawa para kumita. hindi naman kasi biro ang capital diyan no. bridal shower is no different.

    si luciam ba kamo? e ipokrita nga siya e. kung malawak ang pag-iisip mo makikita mo yan sa mga posts niya. pati nga walang kamalay malay na mga bading dinamay niya. :lol:

    ano ba ang mensahe ng pelikula? hindi porke't **** **** ang mga karakter nito ay wala na itong redeeming value. kinukutya ng bridal shower ang mga taong tulad ninyo. judgemental, self righteous pero ang dami namang tinatagong baho.

    hindi kana nadala :lol:

    Focus on MMFF Directors
    Nestor U. Torre

    17 January 2004
    Philippine Daily Inquirer
    Entertainment Section

    VIEWERS who enjoyed some of the entries in the recent Metro Manila Film Festival are divided on their choice of the film fest's best director.

    Some credit Gil Portes and Joel Lamangan for choosing to film significant material and themes in "Homecoming" and "Filipinas," respectively. But others point out that those movies' ways of delivering their messages were occasionally characterized by hectoring.

    Erik Matti was cited for his having megged two different kinds of movies, the occasionally period drama, "Mano Po, 2" and the fantasy-comedy, "Gagamboy." This spells versatility.

    However, "Mano Po, 2" has been faulted for being rather melodramatic, while "Gagamboy" was occasionally perceived to be at cross purposes, with its experimental approach sometimes distracting from its fantasy element, which needs simpler and more natural treatment.

    Meanwhile, Joey Reyes has been praised for his direction of the psycho thriller, "Malikmata," the technical elements of which were especially on the up-and-up. It isn't easy to film a thriller, so the movie's achievement cannot be gainsaid. But the thriller has been faulted for lacking in exciting twists and turns, and for not being scary, a rather basic requirement for its film format.

    Thus, most film buffs' attention has been focused on the work of relatively young directors Jeffrey Jeturian and Mark Meily, who megged "Bridal Shower" and "Crying Ladies," respectively. They have turned out to be the directors of the moment, because their movies were fresher and more dynamic than most other entries.

    Meily won the festival's Best Director plum, but that in no way made Jeturian's achievement moot and academic. Indeed, when we compared the films with each other, we saw that "Crying Ladies" was relatively easier to direct than "Bridal Shower."

    Many of the scenes in "CL" were small and relatively straightforward, while "BS" was more difficult to meg, because its sequences were more varied in style and occasionally even complex. Jeturian's movie was more eventful than "CL," and that advantage was by no means easy to achieve.

    Still, Meily's winsome and heartfelt filmmaking feat is appreciated for its liveliness and integrity. And special mention must be made of his movie's title credits, which benefit from his experience in the technologically savvy world of advertising.

    All told, however, Jeturian's handling of his film has greater range and depth, despite the fact that it is "only" a sex comedy. But the director is so adroit and enterprising that he makes the format more interesting and substantial than it is usually perceived to be.

    Jeturian and Meily's current cachet among movie buffs is all to the good, because it encourages them to look forward to better film times this year.

    That's the sort of encouragement that the local movie scene could use more of during these difficult and dodgy film times.

    Hindi naman sinulat ni Alfie na hindi kumita ang Mila dahil galit o inis sya kay Maricel, I think si Piolo ang sinisisi niya kaya hindi kumita ang Mila at kay Piolo siya galit that time.

    RATED A Ni Aster Amoyo
    Pilipino STAR Ngayon 01/19/2004

    Sa aming pakiwari, mas malaki ang kinita ng 2002 MMFF kumpara sa nakaraang MMFF na umabot lamang ng P328,812,507.77. Ang top grosser sa 2003 MMFF na Captain Barbell ay umabot lamang ng P61-M plus kumpara sa top grosser ng 2002, ang Mano Po.

    Although nakuha namin ang official figures ng bawat kalahok nung nakaraang MMFF, pinakiusapan kaming huwag umanong ilathala ang mga kinita at sa halip ay narito ang official ranking ng siyam na pelikulang nakalahok. Nanguna ang entry ng Premiere Productions na Captain Barbell; pumangalawa ang Fantastic Man ng OctoArts at M-Zet Films, pumangatlo ang Crying Ladies ng Unitel Pictures; pang-apat ang Mano Po 2 ng Regal Films, panglima ang Malikmata ng Canary Films, pang-anim ang Filipinas ng Viva Films; pangpito ang Bridal Shower ng Seiko Films, pangwalo ang Gagamboy ng MaQ Productions at pang-siyam naman ang Homecoming ng Teamwork Productions.

    Samantala, hindi ikinakaila ng Regal matriarch na si Mother Lily ang kanyang sama ng loob sa sinapit ng Mano Po 2 na hindi siyang nakakuha ng 1st Best Picture tulad ng naunang Mano Po na humakot din ng napakaraming awards liban pa sa pangunguna nito sa takilya. Kung nag-number one ang Mano Po 1 na pinamahalaan ni Joel Lamangan, pumang-apat naman sa taong ito ang Mano Po 2 na dinirek naman ni Erik Matti na siya ring director ng Gagamboy ni Vhong Navarro.

    Pero sa kabila na hindi gaanong happy si Mother Lily sa kinahinatnan ng dalawa niyang movie entries sa nakaraang MMFF, hindi raw ito nangangahulugan na hindi na siya magpu-produce ng pelikula. Katunayan, ready for showing na ang isang youth-oriented flick na Kuya na tinatampukan nina Cogie Domingo, Danilo Barrios, Richard Gutierrez, Oyo Boy Sotto, Railey Valeroso mula sa directorial movie debut ni Dominic Zapata.

    May dalawa ring nakalaang pelikula ang Regal para kay Kris Aquino, ang Single Mom at ang isa pang pelikula na pagtatambalan nila ni Vic Sotto. May nakalaan ding project si Mother Lily para kay Vilma Santos sa taong ito.

    As I always say, maraming bayarang mga PR. May mga pamilyang silang pinapakain. Now intelligent readers should read between the lines.

    Aster Amoyo is not a bad person. But she has LOW credibility. Bayarang PR.

    MMFF box office results can be gauged by checing movie houses still showing entries. Ang natitira sa halos lahat ng sinehan? CRYING LADIES at BRIDAL SHOWER.

    Because of Lord of the Rings and other films, natapos na ang karamihan ng mga entries sa MMFF

    Aster Amoyo is the PRO of Octo Arts so I will not doubt if for her and Octo Arts that Fantastic Man is the top grosser.
