    When a Mulawin falls… so bad!

    Directed by: Mark Reyes, Dominic Zapata

    Is this movie really Rated A as rumored? Other than
    having a good teaser/trailer, everything about it is a
    pure D – disappointment. The worthless shouting of
    “AAAAAHHHHHH” and “YAAAAHHH” of Aguiluz, Alwina,
    Ybrahim, and the rest of the fighting human birds in
    battle can’t save the bad acting. It is overused that
    it turns out so irritatingly funny. See bloodless
    swords after countless slashings and Alwina supposedly
    dying and losing too much blood already but still in
    dashing glossy lipstick and heavy blush! Some
    reasonable bloodstain wouldn’t add to the gore to have
    it classified R-18! Better yet, see Aguiluz’s make-up
    even heavier than Alwina’s. BAD. Looks like Mulawin
    the Movie loses wings to fly…

    Knowing that the Mulawins and Ravenas are human birds,
    the fight scenes could have been seen mostly in the
    skies. But it looks like they are fond of fighting on
    the ground only, except for the protagonists who are
    given minimal exposure in mid air. Talk about budget
    constraints… But it’s not an excuse. “Huwag
    ipagpilitan kung di naman pala kaya.” The wings look
    fake. It is possible that the audience won’t be able
    to get away with the idea that the actors and
    actresses are shot in a blue or green screen while
    hanging in a harness. The shots in chroma are always
    too grainy and they are obviously different from the
    non-chroma shots before them. The texture and the cut
    from one shot to another especially when there is a
    visual effect involved looks just too obvious, too
    fake and too awful. A lot of crane/mini-jib shots
    can’t cover up the lousy special effects.

    The production design gives highlight only to what can
    please the eyes. But there is a lot more than just
    putting glossy make-up on the main actors and
    actresses, crafting splendid costumes and making the
    sets look grand. Don’t just concentrate on the
    prosthetics of Ravenum. Try to put some ash or some
    bloodstain on the faces and bodies of those in battle.
    A dust on their faces wouldn’t hurt, neither would a
    sweaty face (I’m not sure if these human birds don’t
    normally perspire or bleed enough when hit by a
    sword…). Let close-up shots of clean swords remain on
    the out-takes if the shots come after a complete
    slashing of a Ravena’s or a Mulawin’s body. Take note
    of the continuity. Justify what should be surreal and
    what should be real. Don’t just research on how the
    costumes and backdrops would look. Research on even
    the smallest detail to have credible and convincing
    props and sets because some people watching would
    really notice.

    No doubt Angel Locsin really has the face. She is
    better off as a commercial model if she can’t improve
    on her skills. Acting-wise, a number of workshops
    might help… During dramatic scenes, her character adds
    a bit to the emotional build up, but she needs more
    talent to become, at least, a ‘good actress.’ During
    fight scenes, she looks ‘lampa’ and she doesn’t even
    have the stance of a second rate warrior. Her funny
    shouts during battle are not just problematic in
    dubbing but also in execution and quantity.

    Aguiluz plays the flute so pathetically. See his
    fingers shifting from one hole to another without
    matching the music heard. A private tutor on playing
    it could have saved this simple boo-boo. Or perhaps,
    the editing could have helped. Too bad, the said music
    is a powerful cinematic tool to uplift the emotions,
    but the goofy type of playing of Aguiluz ruins it.

    There is only one dragon fighting the Tres Aves in mid
    air. I wonder if there’s a meteor shower, or bombs
    planted, or the place of attack is within a volcanic
    land that causes countless blasts on the ground
    everytime the major battle scene is shown on screen.
    Actually, I can’t really get convinced that it is a
    meteor shower or a fireball coming from the dragon
    because the explosions generally don’t come from mid
    air that strikes the land. The blasts mostly come out
    from the ground like the usual explosion effects in an
    action movie. However, I can’t even say it’s a normal
    thing within that area of the Ravena’s territory
    because it has only started upon the attack of the
    dragon. And what’s most obvious is that these
    explosions always serve as background to the major
    characters’ fight scenes – especially Dingdong
    Dantes’. This is a crappy way of copying the look of a
    classic epic as LOTR. Dingdong portrays the role
    considerably well already. He is effective as a
    warrior from Encantadia. And there’s no need to bring
    further attention on him by making explosions behind
    him all the time.
    The Mulawin race is about to be annihilated, but there
    is no enough mark of tension. There is no much build
    up of emotions in the scenes. Even the deaths during
    battles don’t get to create a blood rush or a tear
    rush in the audience. The bit players are obviously
    not given any importance at all (from make-up to
    crowd-directing, it’s terrible). Knowing that there
    are lots of fight scenes, it should be treated as an
    ensemble. Even the tiniest movements of the heads are
    important to constitute the whole scene. A bit more
    close-ups and showing of facial reactions during
    battle scenes (combinations of major characters and
    bit players) could have helped evoke more touching
    cinematic scenes.

    There are too many characters but most are not
    well-developed. The story is entangled with a number
    of half-baked plots and characters – all crammed in.
    The movie could have been treated more intelligibly
    and in a more creative way. It could have been more
    artistic and fun to watch if the Musang race is given
    a more meaningful part in the battle as allies of the
    Ravenas, or I fnot, at least give a brief background
    about it (especially to those who are not into
    watching the TV series) than just making a ‘cameo.’
    This is just a suggestion so as to add more dimension
    and texture to the dull battle scene of swords and
    shouts. Dennis Trillo’s role as Gabriel is a waste of
    time, talent and film rolls. Other than always being
    behind the stardom of Aguiluz and Alwina, the story
    can work without him. Meaning, he is not given the
    proper characterization to make a significant role in
    this movie version. Even his defeat during his fight
    scene with Ravenum doesn’t give him any kind of
    redemption. The only moment to prove a bit of his
    acting prowess is his struggle from his Ravena side
    that is trying to come out. But this never really gets
    to help the story progress. The script is really
    lousy.

    The special effects can’t save a bad script. But
    having a bad script executed with awful special
    effects is worse. Bad acting, lack of research,
    problem with continuity to add up to the list… what
    else can a spectator complain for? With the status of
    the technological advancements in our film industry,
    it is considerably forgivable to imitate Hollywood
    special effects and treatment. The Encantado’s
    language similar to Elven as depicted in LOTR, the
    vampire-like state of morphing of Aguiluz and Alwina
    from being a Mulawin to an ordinary-looking human when
    touched by sunlight, the R2D2-looking creatures in
    Encantadia, the story about light versus dark, the use
    of nature, elements and elementals for a fantasy
    story… they are but okay. But making too much of a
    rip-off is terrible. The map during the opening
    billboard is a blatant copy from LOTR. It could have
    been utilized in a more creative fashion - with a
    touch of being a “Mulawin” or a mark of being a
    Filipino film. Aguiluz’s speech is a mere combination
    of Aragorn’s and Balian’s (Orlando Bloom in Ridley
    Scott’s Kingdom of Heaven) speeches. The initiation
    scene of the Mulawins left – each to become ‘sugo’ of
    their race – seems copied from Kingdom of Heaven. The
    scene where Balian initiates the outnumbered people of
    Jerusalem to become knights to defend their city seems
    copied in bad taste. Personally, I have gotten
    irritated by it being too alike (we’re not talking
    about copying special effects here). The shouting of
    AAAHHH’s and YAAAAHHH’s during battle reminds me of
    the latest King Arthur film of Antoine Fuqua where the
    knights tend to shout RAAAHHH during battle. If
    there’s a call to imitate something, make sure it is
    of the same caliber or even better than the original.

    The melodrama part of this movie is okay for a fantasy
    TV series. But the loopholes in the script combined
    with bad special effects are really disappointing.
    Honestly, I really expected something more. I have
    never really liked to say bad things about a Filipino
    movie, but I can’t help but write about what I see and
    how I see it. I am confident of my words. It’s a
    democratic country anyway. I just hope the other MMFF
    entries are better than this. This fantasy flick lacks
    budget, and worse, lacks creativity.

    crowd-directing, it’s terrible). Knowing that there
    are lots of fight scenes, it should be treated as an
    ensemble. Even the tiniest movements of the heads are
    important to constitute the whole scene. A bit more
    close-ups and showing of facial reactions during
    battle scenes (combinations of major characters and
    bit players) could have helped evoke more touching
    cinematic scenes.

    There are too many characters but most are not
    well-developed. The story is entangled with a number
    of half-baked plots and characters – all crammed in.
    The movie could have been treated more intelligibly
    and in a more creative way. It could have been more
    artistic and fun to watch if the Musang race is given
    a more meaningful part in the battle as allies of the
    Ravenas, or I fnot, at least give a brief background
    about it (especially to those who are not into
    watching the TV series) than just making a ‘cameo.’
    This is just a suggestion so as to add more dimension
    and texture to the dull battle scene of swords and
    shouts. Dennis Trillo’s role as Gabriel is a waste of
    time, talent and film rolls. Other than always being
    behind the stardom of Aguiluz and Alwina, the story
    can work without him. Meaning, he is not given the
    proper characterization to make a significant role in
    this movie version. Even his defeat during his fight
    scene with Ravenum doesn’t give him any kind of
    redemption. The only moment to prove a bit of his
    acting prowess is his struggle from his Ravena side
    that is trying to come out. But this never really gets
    to help the story progress. The script is really
    lousy.

    The special effects can’t save a bad script. But
    having a bad script executed with awful special
    effects is worse. Bad acting, lack of research,
    problem with continuity to add up to the list… what
    else can a spectator complain for? With the status of
    the technological advancements in our film industry,
    it is considerably forgivable to imitate Hollywood
    special effects and treatment. The Encantado’s
    language similar to Elven as depicted in LOTR, the
    vampire-like state of morphing of Aguiluz and Alwina
    from being a Mulawin to an ordinary-looking human when
    touched by sunlight, the R2D2-looking creatures in
    Encantadia, the story about light versus dark, the use
    of nature, elements and elementals for a fantasy
    story… they are but okay. But making too much of a
    rip-off is terrible. The map during the opening
    billboard is a blatant copy from LOTR. It could have
    been utilized in a more creative fashion - with a
    touch of being a “Mulawin” or a mark of being a
    Filipino film. Aguiluz’s speech is a mere combination
    of Aragorn’s and Balian’s (Orlando Bloom in Ridley
    Scott’s Kingdom of Heaven) speeches. The initiation
    scene of the Mulawins left – each to become ‘sugo’ of
    their race – seems copied from Kingdom of Heaven. The
    scene where Balian initiates the outnumbered people of
    Jerusalem to become knights to defend their city seems
    copied in bad taste. Personally, I have gotten
    irritated by it being too alike (we’re not talking
    about copying special effects here). The shouting of
    AAAHHH’s and YAAAAHHH’s during battle reminds me of
    the latest King Arthur film of Antoine Fuqua where the
    knights tend to shout RAAAHHH during battle. If
    there’s a call to imitate something, make sure it is
    of the same caliber or even better than the original.

    The melodrama part of this movie is okay for a fantasy
    TV series. But the loopholes in the script combined
    with bad special effects are really disappointing.
    Honestly, I really expected something more. I have
    never really liked to say bad things about a Filipino
    movie, but I can’t help but write about what I see and
    how I see it. I am confident of my words. It’s a
    democratic country anyway. I just hope the other MMFF
    entries are better than this. This fantasy flick lacks
    budget, and worse, lacks creativity.



    When a Mulawin falls… so bad!

    Is this movie really Rated A as rumored? Other than
    having a good teaser/trailer, everything about it is a
    pure D – disappointment. The worthless shouting of
    “AAAAAHHHHHH” and “YAAAAHHH” of Aguiluz, Alwina,
    Ybrahim, and the rest of the fighting human birds in
    battle can’t save the bad acting. It is overused that
    it turns out so irritatingly funny. See bloodless
    swords after countless slashings and Alwina supposedly
    dying and losing too much blood already but still in
    dashing glossy lipstick and heavy blush! Some
    reasonable bloodstain wouldn’t add to the gore to have
    it classified R-18! Better yet, see Aguiluz’s make-up
    even heavier than Alwina’s. BAD. Looks like Mulawin
    the Movie loses wings to fly…

    Knowing that the Mulawins and Ravenas are human birds,
    the fight scenes could have been seen mostly in the
    skies. But it looks like they are fond of fighting on
    the ground only, except for the protagonists who are
    given minimal exposure in mid air. Talk about budget
    constraints… But it’s not an excuse. “Huwag
    ipagpilitan kung di naman pala kaya.” The wings look
    fake. It is possible that the audience won’t be able
    to get away with the idea that the actors and
    actresses are shot in a blue or green screen while
    hanging in a harness. The shots in chroma are always
    too grainy and they are obviously different from the
    non-chroma shots before them. The texture and the cut
    from one shot to another especially when there is a
    visual effect involved looks just too obvious, too
    fake and too awful. A lot of crane/mini-jib shots
    can’t cover up the lousy special effects.

    The production design gives highlight only to what can
    please the eyes. But there is a lot more than just
    putting glossy make-up on the main actors and
    actresses, crafting splendid costumes and making the
    sets look grand. Don’t just concentrate on the
    prosthetics of Ravenum. Try to put some ash or some
    bloodstain on the faces and bodies of those in battle.
    A dust on their faces wouldn’t hurt, neither would a
    sweaty face (I’m not sure if these human birds don’t
    normally perspire or bleed enough when hit by a
    sword…). Let close-up shots of clean swords remain on
    the out-takes if the shots come after a complete
    slashing of a Ravena’s or a Mulawin’s body. Take note
    of the continuity. Justify what should be surreal and
    what should be real. Don’t just research on how the
    costumes and backdrops would look. Research on even
    the smallest detail to have credible and convincing
    props and sets because some people watching would
    really notice.

    No doubt Angel Locsin really has the face. She is
    better off as a commercial model if she can’t improve
    on her skills. Acting-wise, a number of workshops
    might help… During dramatic scenes, her character adds
    a bit to the emotional build up, but she needs more
    talent to become, at least, a ‘good actress.’ During
    fight scenes, she looks ‘lampa’ and she doesn’t even
    have the stance of a second rate warrior. Her funny
    shouts during battle are not just problematic in
    dubbing but also in execution and quantity.

    Aguiluz plays the flute so pathetically. See his
    fingers shifting from one hole to another without
    matching the music heard. A private tutor on playing
    it could have saved this simple boo-boo. Or perhaps,
    the editing could have helped. Too bad, the said music
    is a powerful cinematic tool to uplift the emotions,
    but the goofy type of playing of Aguiluz ruins it.

    There is only one dragon fighting the Tres Aves in mid
    air. I wonder if there’s a meteor shower, or bombs
    planted, or the place of attack is within a volcanic
    land that causes countless blasts on the ground
    everytime the major battle scene is shown on screen.
    Actually, I can’t really get convinced that it is a
    meteor shower or a fireball coming from the dragon
    because the explosions generally don’t come from mid
    air that strikes the land. The blasts mostly come out
    from the ground like the usual explosion effects in an
    action movie. However, I can’t even say it’s a normal
    thing within that area of the Ravena’s territory
    because it has only started upon the attack of the
    dragon. And what’s most obvious is that these
    explosions always serve as background to the major
    characters’ fight scenes – especially Dingdong
    Dantes’. This is a crappy way of copying the look of a
    classic epic as LOTR. Dingdong portrays the role
    considerably well already. He is effective as a
    warrior from Encantadia. And there’s no need to bring
    further attention on him by making explosions behind
    him all the time.
    The Mulawin race is about to be annihilated, but there
    is no enough mark of tension. There is no much build
    up of emotions in the scenes. Even the deaths during
    battles don’t get to create a blood rush or a tear
    rush in the audience. The bit players are obviously
    not given any importance at all (from make-up to
    crowd-directing, it’s terrible). Knowing that there
    are lots of fight scenes, it should be treated as an

    air. I wonder if there’s a meteor shower, or bombs
    planted, or the place of attack is within a volcanic
    land that causes countless blasts on the ground
    everytime the major battle scene is shown on screen.
    Actually, I can’t really get convinced that it is a
    meteor shower or a fireball coming from the dragon
    because the explosions generally don’t come from mid
    air that strikes the land. The blasts mostly come out
    from the ground like the usual explosion effects in an
    action movie. However, I can’t even say it’s a normal
    thing within that area of the Ravena’s territory
    because it has only started upon the attack of the
    dragon. And what’s most obvious is that these
    explosions always serve as background to the major
    characters’ fight scenes – especially Dingdong
    Dantes’. This is a crappy way of copying the look of a
    classic epic as LOTR. Dingdong portrays the role
    considerably well already. He is effective as a
    warrior from Encantadia. And there’s no need to bring
    further attention on him by making explosions behind
    him all the time.
    The Mulawin race is about to be annihilated, but there
    is no enough mark of tension. There is no much build
    up of emotions in the scenes. Even the deaths during
    battles don’t get to create a blood rush or a tear
    rush in the audience. The bit players are obviously
    not given any importance at all (from make-up to
    crowd-directing, it’s terrible). Knowing that there
    are lots of fight scenes, it should be treated as an
    ensemble. Even the tiniest movements of the heads are
    important to constitute the whole scene. A bit more
    close-ups and showing of facial reactions during
    battle scenes (combinations of major characters and
    bit players) could have helped evoke more touching
    cinematic scenes.

    There are too many characters but most are not
    well-developed. The story is entangled with a number
    of half-baked plots and characters – all crammed in.
    The movie could have been treated more intelligibly
    and in a more creative way. It could have been more
    artistic and fun to watch if the Musang race is given
    a more meaningful part in the battle as allies of the
    Ravenas, or I fnot, at least give a brief background
    about it (especially to those who are not into
    watching the TV series) than just making a ‘cameo.’
    This is just a suggestion so as to add more dimension
    and texture to the dull battle scene of swords and
    shouts. Dennis Trillo’s role as Gabriel is a waste of
    time, talent and film rolls. Other than always being
    behind the stardom of Aguiluz and Alwina, the story
    can work without him. Meaning, he is not given the
    proper characterization to make a significant role in
    this movie version. Even his defeat during his fight
    scene with Ravenum doesn’t give him any kind of
    redemption. The only moment to prove a bit of his
    acting prowess is his struggle from his Ravena side
    that is trying to come out. But this never really gets
    to help the story progress. The script is really
    lousy.

    The special effects can’t save a bad script. But
    having a bad script executed with awful special
    effects is worse. Bad acting, lack of research,
    problem with continuity to add up to the list… what
    else can a spectator complain for? With the status of
    the technological advancements in our film industry,
    it is considerably forgivable to imitate Hollywood
    special effects and treatment. The Encantado’s
    language similar to Elven as depicted in LOTR, the
    vampire-like state of morphing of Aguiluz and Alwina
    from being a Mulawin to an ordinary-looking human when
    touched by sunlight, the R2D2-looking creatures in
    Encantadia, the story about light versus dark, the use
    of nature, elements and elementals for a fantasy
    story… they are but okay. But making too much of a
    rip-off is terrible. The map during the opening
    billboard is a blatant copy from LOTR. It could have
    been utilized in a more creative fashion - with a
    touch of being a “Mulawin” or a mark of being a
    Filipino film. Aguiluz’s speech is a mere combination
    of Aragorn’s and Balian’s (Orlando Bloom in Ridley
    Scott’s Kingdom of Heaven) speeches. The initiation
    scene of the Mulawins left – each to become ‘sugo’ of
    their race – seems copied from Kingdom of Heaven. The
    scene where Balian initiates the outnumbered people of
    Jerusalem to become knights to defend their city seems
    copied in bad taste. Personally, I have gotten
    irritated by it being too alike (we’re not talking
    about copying special effects here). The shouting of
    AAAHHH’s and YAAAAHHH’s during battle reminds me of
    the latest King Arthur film of Antoine Fuqua where the
    knights tend to shout RAAAHHH during battle. If
    there’s a call to imitate something, make sure it is
    of the same caliber or even better than the original.

    The melodrama part of this movie is okay for a fantasy
    TV series. But the loopholes in the script combined
    with bad special effects are really disappointing.
    Honestly, I really expected something more. I have
    never really liked to say bad things about a Filipino
    movie, but I can’t help but write about what I see and
    how I see it. I am confident of my words. It’s a
    democratic country anyway. I just hope the other MMFF
    entries are better than this. This fantasy flick lacks
    budget, and worse, lacks creativity.



    When a Mulawin falls… so bad!

    Is this movie really Rated A as rumored? Other than
    having a good teaser/trailer, everything about it is a
    pure D – disappointment. The worthless shouting of
    “AAAAAHHHHHH” and “YAAAAHHH” of Aguiluz, Alwina,
    Ybrahim, and the rest of the fighting human birds in
    battle can’t save the bad acting. It is overused that
    it turns out so irritatingly funny. See bloodless
    swords after countless slashings and Alwina supposedly
    dying and losing too much blood already but still in
    dashing glossy lipstick and heavy blush! Some
    reasonable bloodstain wouldn’t add to the gore to have
    it classified R-18! Better yet, see Aguiluz’s make-up
    even heavier than Alwina’s. BAD. Looks like Mulawin
    the Movie loses wings to fly…

    Knowing that the Mulawins and Ravenas are human birds,
    the fight scenes could have been seen mostly in the
    skies. But it looks like they are fond of fighting on
    the ground only, except for the protagonists who are
    given minimal exposure in mid air. Talk about budget
    constraints… But it’s not an excuse. “Huwag
    ipagpilitan kung di naman pala kaya.” The wings look
    fake. It is possible that the audience won’t be able
    to get away with the idea that the actors and
    actresses are shot in a blue or green screen while
    hanging in a harness. The shots in chroma are always
    too grainy and they are obviously different from the
    non-chroma shots before them. The texture and the cut
    from one shot to another especially when there is a
    visual effect involved looks just too obvious, too
    fake and too awful. A lot of crane/mini-jib shots
    can’t cover up the lousy special effects.

    The production design gives highlight only to what can
    please the eyes. But there is a lot more than just
    putting glossy make-up on the main actors and
    actresses, crafting splendid costumes and making the
    sets look grand. Don’t just concentrate on the
    prosthetics of Ravenum. Try to put some ash or some
    bloodstain on the faces and bodies of those in battle.
    A dust on their faces wouldn’t hurt, neither would a
    sweaty face (I’m not sure if these human birds don’t
    normally perspire or bleed enough when hit by a
    sword…). Let close-up shots of clean swords remain on
    the out-takes if the shots come after a complete
    slashing of a Ravena’s or a Mulawin’s body. Take note
    of the continuity. Justify what should be surreal and
    what should be real. Don’t just research on how the
    costumes and backdrops would look. Research on even
    the smallest detail to have credible and convincing
    props and sets because some people watching would
    really notice.

    No doubt Angel Locsin really has the face. She is
    better off as a commercial model if she can’t improve
    on her skills. Acting-wise, a number of workshops
    might help… During dramatic scenes, her character adds
    a bit to the emotional build up, but she needs more
    talent to become, at least, a ‘good actress.’ During
    fight scenes, she looks ‘lampa’ and she doesn’t even
    have the stance of a second rate warrior. Her funny
    shouts during battle are not just problematic in
    dubbing but also in execution and quantity.

    Aguiluz plays the flute so pathetically. See his
    fingers shifting from one hole to another without
    matching the music heard. A private tutor on playing
    it could have saved this simple boo-boo. Or perhaps,
    the editing could have helped. Too bad, the said music
    is a powerful cinematic tool to uplift the emotions,
    but the goofy type of playing of Aguiluz ruins it.

    There is only one dragon fighting the Tres Aves in mid

    When a Mulawin falls… so bad!

    Is this movie really Rated A as rumored? Other than
    having a good teaser/trailer, everything about it is a
    pure D – disappointment. The worthless shouting of
    “AAAAAHHHHHH” and “YAAAAHHH” of Aguiluz, Alwina,
    Ybrahim, and the rest of the fighting human birds in
    battle can’t save the bad acting. It is overused that
    it turns out so irritatingly funny. See bloodless
    swords after countless slashings and Alwina supposedly
    dying and losing too much blood already but still in
    dashing glossy lipstick and heavy blush! Some
    reasonable bloodstain wouldn’t add to the gore to have
    it classified R-18! Better yet, see Aguiluz’s make-up
    even heavier than Alwina’s. BAD. Looks like Mulawin
    the Movie loses wings to fly…

    Knowing that the Mulawins and Ravenas are human birds,
    the fight scenes could have been seen mostly in the
    skies. But it looks like they are fond of fighting on
    the ground only, except for the protagonists who are
    given minimal exposure in mid air. Talk about budget
    constraints… But it’s not an excuse. “Huwag
    ipagpilitan kung di naman pala kaya.” The wings look
    fake. It is possible that the audience won’t be able
    to get away with the idea that the actors and
    actresses are shot in a blue or green screen while
    hanging in a harness. The shots in chroma are always
    too grainy and they are obviously different from the
    non-chroma shots before them. The texture and the cut
    from one shot to another especially when there is a
    visual effect involved looks just too obvious, too
    fake and too awful. A lot of crane/mini-jib shots
    can’t cover up the lousy special effects.

    The production design gives highlight only to what can
    please the eyes. But there is a lot more than just
    putting glossy make-up on the main actors and
    actresses, crafting splendid costumes and making the
    sets look grand. Don’t just concentrate on the
    prosthetics of Ravenum. Try to put some ash or some
    bloodstain on the faces and bodies of those in battle.
    A dust on their faces wouldn’t hurt, neither would a
    sweaty face (I’m not sure if these human birds don’t
    normally perspire or bleed enough when hit by a
    sword…). Let close-up shots of clean swords remain on
    the out-takes if the shots come after a complete
    slashing of a Ravena’s or a Mulawin’s body. Take note
    of the continuity. Justify what should be surreal and
    what should be real. Don’t just research on how the
    costumes and backdrops would look. Research on even
    the smallest detail to have credible and convincing
    props and sets because some people watching would
    really notice.

    No doubt Angel Locsin really has the face. She is
    better off as a commercial model if she can’t improve
    on her skills. Acting-wise, a number of workshops
    might help… During dramatic scenes, her character adds
    a bit to the emotional build up, but she needs more
    talent to become, at least, a ‘good actress.’ During
    fight scenes, she looks ‘lampa’ and she doesn’t even
    have the stance of a second rate warrior. Her funny
    shouts during battle are not just problematic in
    dubbing but also in execution and quantity.

    Aguiluz plays the flute so pathetically. See his
    fingers shifting from one hole to another without
    matching the music heard. A private tutor on playing
    it could have saved this simple boo-boo. Or perhaps,
    the editing could have helped. Too bad, the said music
    is a powerful cinematic tool to uplift the emotions,
    but the goofy type of playing of Aguiluz ruins it.

    There is only one dragon fighting the Tres Aves in mid
    air. I wonder if there’s a meteor shower, or bombs
    planted, or the place of attack is within a volcanic
    land that causes countless blasts on the ground
    everytime the major battle scene is shown on screen.
    Actually, I can’t really get convinced that it is a
    meteor shower or a fireball coming from the dragon
    because the explosions generally don’t come from mid
    air that strikes the land. The blasts mostly come out
    from the ground like the usual explosion effects in an
    action movie. However, I can’t even say it’s a normal
    thing within that area of the Ravena’s territory
    because it has only started upon the attack of the
    dragon. And what’s most obvious is that these
    explosions always serve as background to the major
    characters’ fight scenes – especially Dingdong
    Dantes’. This is a crappy way of copying the look of a
    classic epic as LOTR. Dingdong portrays the role
    considerably well already. He is effective as a
    warrior from Encantadia. And there’s no need to bring
    further attention on him by making explosions behind
    him all the time.
    The Mulawin race is about to be annihilated, but there
    is no enough mark of tension. There is no much build
    up of emotions in the scenes. Even the deaths during
    battles don’t get to create a blood rush or a tear
    rush in the audience. The bit players are obviously
    not given any importance at all (from make-up to
    crowd-directing, it’s terrible). Knowing that there
    are lots of fight scenes, it should be treated as an
    ensemble. Even the tiniest movements of the heads are
    important to constitute the whole scene. A bit more
    close-ups and showing of facial reactions during
    battle scenes (combinations of major characters and
    bit players) could have helped evoke more touching
    cinematic scenes.

    There are too many characters but most are not
    well-developed. The story is entangled with a number
    of half-baked plots and characters – all crammed in.
    The movie could have been treated more intelligibly
    and in a more creative way. It could have been more
    artistic and fun to watch if the Musang race is given
    a more meaningful part in the battle as allies of the
    Ravenas, or I fnot, at least give a brief background
    about it (especially to those who are not into
    watching the TV series) than just making a ‘cameo.’
    This is just a suggestion so as to add more dimension
    and texture to the dull battle scene of swords and
    shouts. Dennis Trillo’s role as Gabriel is a waste of
    time, talent and film rolls. Other than always being
    behind the stardom of Aguiluz and Alwina, the story
    can work without him. Meaning, he is not given the
    proper characterization to make a significant role in
    this movie version. Even his defeat during his fight
    scene with Ravenum doesn’t give him any kind of
    redemption. The only moment to prove a bit of his
    acting prowess is his struggle from his Ravena side
    that is trying to come out. But this never really gets
    to help the story progress. The script is really
    lousy.

    The special effects can’t save a bad script. But
    having a bad script executed with awful special
    effects is worse. Bad acting, lack of research,
    problem with continuity to add up to the list… what
    else can a spectator complain for? With the status of
    the technological advancements in our film industry,
    it is considerably forgivable to imitate Hollywood
    special effects and treatment. The Encantado’s
    language similar to Elven as depicted in LOTR, the
    vampire-like state of morphing of Aguiluz and Alwina
    from being a Mulawin to an ordinary-looking human when
    touched by sunlight, the R2D2-looking creatures in
    Encantadia, the story about light versus dark, the use
    of nature, elements and elementals for a fantasy
    story… they are but okay. But making too much of a
    rip-off is terrible. The map during the opening
    billboard is a blatant copy from LOTR. It could have
    been utilized in a more creative fashion - with a
    touch of being a “Mulawin” or a mark of being a
    Filipino film. Aguiluz’s speech is a mere combination
    of Aragorn’s and Balian’s (Orlando Bloom in Ridley
    Scott’s Kingdom of Heaven) speeches. The initiation
    scene of the Mulawins left – each to become ‘sugo’ of
    their race – seems copied from Kingdom of Heaven. The
    scene where Balian initiates the outnumbered people of
    Jerusalem to become knights to defend their city seems
    copied in bad taste. Personally, I have gotten
    irritated by it being too alike (we’re not talking
    about copying special effects here). The shouting of
    AAAHHH’s and YAAAAHHH’s during battle reminds me of
    the latest King Arthur film of Antoine Fuqua where the
    knights tend to shout RAAAHHH during battle. If
    there’s a call to imitate something, make sure it is
    of the same caliber or even better than the original.

    vampire-like state of morphing of Aguiluz and Alwina
    from being a Mulawin to an ordinary-looking human when
    touched by sunlight, the R2D2-looking creatures in
    Encantadia, the story about light versus dark, the use
    of nature, elements and elementals for a fantasy
    story… they are but okay. But making too much of a
    rip-off is terrible. The map during the opening
    billboard is a blatant copy from LOTR. It could have
    been utilized in a more creative fashion - with a
    touch of being a “Mulawin” or a mark of being a
    Filipino film. Aguiluz’s speech is a mere combination
    of Aragorn’s and Balian’s (Orlando Bloom in Ridley
    Scott’s Kingdom of Heaven) speeches. The initiation
    scene of the Mulawins left – each to become ‘sugo’ of
    their race – seems copied from Kingdom of Heaven. The
    scene where Balian initiates the outnumbered people of
    Jerusalem to become knights to defend their city seems
    copied in bad taste. Personally, I have gotten
    irritated by it being too alike (we’re not talking
    about copying special effects here). The shouting of
    AAAHHH’s and YAAAAHHH’s during battle reminds me of
    the latest King Arthur film of Antoine Fuqua where the
    knights tend to shout RAAAHHH during battle. If
    there’s a call to imitate something, make sure it is
    of the same caliber or even better than the original.

    The melodrama part of this movie is okay for a fantasy
    TV series. But the loopholes in the script combined
    with bad special effects are really disappointing.
    Honestly, I really expected something more. I have
    never really liked to say bad things about a Filipino
    movie, but I can’t help but write about what I see and
    how I see it. I am confident of my words. It’s a
    democratic country anyway. I just hope the other MMFF
    entries are better than this. This fantasy flick lacks
    budget, and worse, lacks creativity.



    When a Mulawin falls… so bad!

    Is this movie really Rated A as rumored? Other than
    having a good teaser/trailer, everything about it is a
    pure D – disappointment. The worthless shouting of
    “AAAAAHHHHHH” and “YAAAAHHH” of Aguiluz, Alwina,
    Ybrahim, and the rest of the fighting human birds in
    battle can’t save the bad acting. It is overused that
    it turns out so irritatingly funny. See bloodless
    swords after countless slashings and Alwina supposedly
    dying and losing too much blood already but still in
    dashing glossy lipstick and heavy blush! Some
    reasonable bloodstain wouldn’t add to the gore to have
    it classified R-18! Better yet, see Aguiluz’s make-up
    even heavier than Alwina’s. BAD. Looks like Mulawin
    the Movie loses wings to fly…

    Knowing that the Mulawins and Ravenas are human birds,
    the fight scenes could have been seen mostly in the
    skies. But it looks like they are fond of fighting on
    the ground only, except for the protagonists who are
    given minimal exposure in mid air. Talk about budget
    constraints… But it’s not an excuse. “Huwag
    ipagpilitan kung di naman pala kaya.” The wings look
    fake. It is possible that the audience won’t be able
    to get away with the idea that the actors and
    actresses are shot in a blue or green screen while
    hanging in a harness. The shots in chroma are always
    too grainy and they are obviously different from the
    non-chroma shots before them. The texture and the cut
    from one shot to another especially when there is a
    visual effect involved looks just too obvious, too
    fake and too awful. A lot of crane/mini-jib shots
    can’t cover up the lousy special effects.

    The production design gives highlight only to what can
    please the eyes. But there is a lot more than just
    putting glossy make-up on the main actors and
    actresses, crafting splendid costumes and making the
    sets look grand. Don’t just concentrate on the
    prosthetics of Ravenum. Try to put some ash or some
    bloodstain on the faces and bodies of those in battle.
    A dust on their faces wouldn’t hurt, neither would a
    sweaty face (I’m not sure if these human birds don’t
    normally perspire or bleed enough when hit by a
    sword…). Let close-up shots of clean swords remain on
    the out-takes if the shots come after a complete
    slashing of a Ravena’s or a Mulawin’s body. Take note
    of the continuity. Justify what should be surreal and
    what should be real. Don’t just research on how the
    costumes and backdrops would look. Research on even
    the smallest detail to have credible and convincing
    props and sets because some people watching would
    really notice.

    No doubt Angel Locsin really has the face. She is
    better off as a commercial model if she can’t improve
    on her skills. Acting-wise, a number of workshops
    might help… During dramatic scenes, her character adds
    a bit to the emotional build up, but she needs more
    talent to become, at least, a ‘good actress.’ During
    fight scenes, she looks ‘lampa’ and she doesn’t even
    have the stance of a second rate warrior. Her funny
    shouts during battle are not just problematic in
    dubbing but also in execution and quantity.

    Aguiluz plays the flute so pathetically. See his
    fingers shifting from one hole to another without
    matching the music heard. A private tutor on playing
    it could have saved this simple boo-boo. Or perhaps,
    the editing could have helped. Too bad, the said music
    is a powerful cinematic tool to uplift the emotions,
    but the goofy type of playing of Aguiluz ruins it.

    There is only one dragon fighting the Tres Aves in mid
    air. I wonder if there’s a meteor shower, or bombs
    planted, or the place of attack is within a volcanic
    land that causes countless blasts on the ground
    everytime the major battle scene is shown on screen.
    Actually, I can’t really get convinced that it is a
    meteor shower or a fireball coming from the dragon
    because the explosions generally don’t come from mid
    air that strikes the land. The blasts mostly come out
    from the ground like the usual explosion effects in an
    action movie. However, I can’t even say it’s a normal
    thing within that area of the Ravena’s territory
    because it has only started upon the attack of the
    dragon. And what’s most obvious is that these
    explosions always serve as background to the major
    characters’ fight scenes – especially Dingdong
    Dantes’. This is a crappy way of copying the look of a
    classic epic as LOTR. Dingdong portrays the role
    considerably well already. He is effective as a
    warrior from Encantadia. And there’s no need to bring
    further attention on him by making explosions behind
    him all the time.
    The Mulawin race is about to be annihilated, but there
    is no enough mark of tension. There is no much build
    up of emotions in the scenes. Even the deaths during
    battles don’t get to create a blood rush or a tear
    rush in the audience. The bit players are obviously
    not given any importance at all (from make-up to
    crowd-directing, it’s terrible). Knowing that there
    are lots of fight scenes, it should be treated as an
    ensemble. Even the tiniest movements of the heads are
    important to constitute the whole scene. A bit more
    close-ups and showing of facial reactions during
    battle scenes (combinations of major characters and
    bit players) could have helped evoke more touching
    cinematic scenes.

    There are too many characters but most are not
    well-developed. The story is entangled with a number
    of half-baked plots and characters – all crammed in.
    The movie could have been treated more intelligibly
    and in a more creative way. It could have been more
    artistic and fun to watch if the Musang race is given
    a more meaningful part in the battle as allies of the
    Ravenas, or I fnot, at least give a brief background
    about it (especially to those who are not into
    watching the TV series) than just making a ‘cameo.’
    This is just a suggestion so as to add more dimension
    and texture to the dull battle scene of swords and
    shouts. Dennis Trillo’s role as Gabriel is a waste of
    time, talent and film rolls. Other than always being
    behind the stardom of Aguiluz and Alwina, the story
    can work without him. Meaning, he is not given the
    proper characterization to make a significant role in
    this movie version. Even his defeat during his fight
    scene with Ravenum doesn’t give him any kind of
    redemption. The only moment to prove a bit of his
    acting prowess is his struggle from his Ravena side
    that is trying to come out. But this never really gets
    to help the story progress. The script is really
    lousy.

    The special effects can’t save a bad script. But
    having a bad script executed with awful special
    effects is worse. Bad acting, lack of research,
    problem with continuity to add up to the list… what
    else can a spectator complain for? With the status of
    the technological advancements in our film industry,
    it is considerably forgivable to imitate Hollywood
    special effects and treatment. The Encantado’s
    language similar to Elven as depicted in LOTR, the
    vampire-like state of morphing of Aguiluz and Alwina

    a more meaningful part in the battle as allies of the
    Ravenas, or I fnot, at least give a brief background
    about it (especially to those who are not into
    watching the TV series) than just making a ‘cameo.’
    This is just a suggestion so as to add more dimension
    and texture to the dull battle scene of swords and
    shouts. Dennis Trillo’s role as Gabriel is a waste of
    time, talent and film rolls. Other than always being
    behind the stardom of Aguiluz and Alwina, the story
    can work without him. Meaning, he is not given the
    proper characterization to make a significant role in
    this movie version. Even his defeat during his fight
    scene with Ravenum doesn’t give him any kind of
    redemption. The only moment to prove a bit of his
    acting prowess is his struggle from his Ravena side
    that is trying to come out. But this never really gets
    to help the story progress. The script is really
    lousy.

    The special effects can’t save a bad script. But
    having a bad script executed with awful special
    effects is worse. Bad acting, lack of research,
    problem with continuity to add up to the list… what
    else can a spectator complain for? With the status of
    the technological advancements in our film industry,
    it is considerably forgivable to imitate Hollywood
    special effects and treatment. The Encantado’s
    language similar to Elven as depicted in LOTR, the
    vampire-like state of morphing of Aguiluz and Alwina
    from being a Mulawin to an ordinary-looking human when
    touched by sunlight, the R2D2-looking creatures in
    Encantadia, the story about light versus dark, the use
    of nature, elements and elementals for a fantasy
    story… they are but okay. But making too much of a
    rip-off is terrible. The map during the opening
    billboard is a blatant copy from LOTR. It could have
    been utilized in a more creative fashion - with a
    touch of being a “Mulawin” or a mark of being a
    Filipino film. Aguiluz’s speech is a mere combination
    of Aragorn’s and Balian’s (Orlando Bloom in Ridley
    Scott’s Kingdom of Heaven) speeches. The initiation
    scene of the Mulawins left – each to become ‘sugo’ of
    their race – seems copied from Kingdom of Heaven. The
    scene where Balian initiates the outnumbered people of
    Jerusalem to become knights to defend their city seems
    copied in bad taste. Personally, I have gotten
    irritated by it being too alike (we’re not talking
    about copying special effects here). The shouting of
    AAAHHH’s and YAAAAHHH’s during battle reminds me of
    the latest King Arthur film of Antoine Fuqua where the
    knights tend to shout RAAAHHH during battle. If
    there’s a call to imitate something, make sure it is
    of the same caliber or even better than the original.

    The melodrama part of this movie is okay for a fantasy
    TV series. But the loopholes in the script combined
    with bad special effects are really disappointing.
    Honestly, I really expected something more. I have
    never really liked to say bad things about a Filipino
    movie, but I can’t help but write about what I see and
    how I see it. I am confident of my words. It’s a
    democratic country anyway. I just hope the other MMFF
    entries are better than this. This fantasy flick lacks
    budget, and worse, lacks creativity.



    When a Mulawin falls… so bad!

    Is this movie really Rated A as rumored? Other than
    having a good teaser/trailer, everything about it is a
    pure D – disappointment. The worthless shouting of
    “AAAAAHHHHHH” and “YAAAAHHH” of Aguiluz, Alwina,
    Ybrahim, and the rest of the fighting human birds in
    battle can’t save the bad acting. It is overused that
    it turns out so irritatingly funny. See bloodless
    swords after countless slashings and Alwina supposedly
    dying and losing too much blood already but still in
    dashing glossy lipstick and heavy blush! Some
    reasonable bloodstain wouldn’t add to the gore to have
    it classified R-18! Better yet, see Aguiluz’s make-up
    even heavier than Alwina’s. BAD. Looks like Mulawin
    the Movie loses wings to fly…

    Knowing that the Mulawins and Ravenas are human birds,
    the fight scenes could have been seen mostly in the
    skies. But it looks like they are fond of fighting on
    the ground only, except for the protagonists who are
    given minimal exposure in mid air. Talk about budget
    constraints… But it’s not an excuse. “Huwag
    ipagpilitan kung di naman pala kaya.” The wings look
    fake. It is possible that the audience won’t be able
    to get away with the idea that the actors and
    actresses are shot in a blue or green screen while
    hanging in a harness. The shots in chroma are always
    too grainy and they are obviously different from the
    non-chroma shots before them. The texture and the cut
    from one shot to another especially when there is a
    visual effect involved looks just too obvious, too
    fake and too awful. A lot of crane/mini-jib shots
    can’t cover up the lousy special effects.

    The production design gives highlight only to what can
    please the eyes. But there is a lot more than just
    putting glossy make-up on the main actors and
    actresses, crafting splendid costumes and making the
    sets look grand. Don’t just concentrate on the
    prosthetics of Ravenum. Try to put some ash or some
    bloodstain on the faces and bodies of those in battle.
    A dust on their faces wouldn’t hurt, neither would a
    sweaty face (I’m not sure if these human birds don’t
    normally perspire or bleed enough when hit by a
    sword…). Let close-up shots of clean swords remain on
    the out-takes if the shots come after a complete
    slashing of a Ravena’s or a Mulawin’s body. Take note
    of the continuity. Justify what should be surreal and
    what should be real. Don’t just research on how the
    costumes and backdrops would look. Research on even
    the smallest detail to have credible and convincing
    props and sets because some people watching would
    really notice.

    No doubt Angel Locsin rea

    HAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHA classic example ka pang nalalaman dyan ah.

    saka nanonood ako sa parehong istasyon hindi ko naman sinasamba ang ABS tulad ni razzer na mukang GMA! magpapakamatay yata un para dun e. wawa naman un lang ang kinabubuhay nya.

    I disagree nandyan pa rin naman ang ABS.

    Kahit na

    Walang movie ang Star Cinema sa MMFF

    Baka hindi man lang kumita ng 250 million pesos ang Star Cinema sa 2005 which is lower compared to 2004 and 2003 dahil sa dami ng flop movies ng Star Cinema

    Tigok na ang Panday

    Hanggang Centennial Airport lang ang kayang abutin ng TFC

    Talagang hindi mag-rate ang housemates sa labas ng PBB

    Binenta na ang subscribers ng TFC sa Direct TV dahil kailangan talaga ng pera at lugi na talaga

    Kahit na halos mag-makaawa ang kanyang CFO na kailangan nakuha nila ang primetime next year

    Cheap, rewind, low budget films, locally produced shows, at 2rd rate koreanovelas at other soaps na lang ang kayang ipalbas ng Dos

    Wala ng kontrata ang karamihan ng stars ng ABS tulad na lang ni Claudine, Jericho

    Kinuha nila ang boxing match ni Manny para lang kumita at wala nga kwenta ang primetime bida niya

    May second season ang VR at padating na ang Gulong ng Palad

    Nadyan pa rin ang ABS handang Magpasaya ang Kapamilya. Dahil ang ABS ang mas pinanapanood ng mas maraming Pilipino DITO (kung saan man ito), sa Centenial Airport at kung saan man aabot ang TFC with its 1.9 million viewers.
