Isang kamanghang-manghang eksena na bihira lamang mangyari sa mga kaganapan sa daigdig o mundo ng Philippine Showbiz. Isang tinaguriang Superstar ng Pelikulang Pilipino at isa sa mga kinu-consider na isa sa mga Greatest Masters of Philippine Cinema!

Naganap ang pangyayaring iyon sa premiere night ng pelikulang Sapi ni direk Brillante Mendoza. Pareho niyang espesyal na mga bisita nu’ng gabing iyon sina Ms. Nora Aunor at Master Peque Gallaga. Pero dahil sa sobrang kaabalahan na ni direk Brillante, hindi na niya na-escort papasok ng sinehan (kung saan iso-showing ang Sapi) sina direk Gallaga at Ms. Aunor.

Naunang dumating si direk Gallaga at medyo matagal din itong nag-stay sa cocktails table area na kung saan ay nagsilbi ng mga espesyal na cocktails food sa said event a few days ago. At nu’ng mainip na si direk Gallaga, pumasok na ito sa loob ng sinehan, together with Ms. Digna Santiago, a producer, and direk Joey Romero, also a veteran film maker and son of National Artist for Film na si Eddie Romero (R.I.P.). Hindi na inabala pa ni direk Gallaga si direk Brillante na hinihila ng kung sinu-sinong mga tao nu’ng mga sandaling iyon for interviews, picture-takings at tsikahan.

Tahimik lang na umupo si direk Gallaga sa loob ng sinehan at saglit pa siyang binati ng blogger ng “Ssssip’s Awe” blog. Na-recall pa nga ni direk Brillante ang magandang poetic film review na naisulat nu’ng blogger na iyon sa said blog. After almost fifteen minutes, hayan na, humahangos na papasok sa loob ng sinehan ang grupo ni Ms. Aunor at escorted siya ng scriptwriter na si Ricky Lee. Ngumiti at kumaway sa lahat ng taong naro’n ang Superstar in all her humility. Pero nu’ng makita na niya si direk Gallaga, nagmadali na siyang umakyat ng hagdanan para puntahan ito!

And the next scene was so emotional in the eyes of one blogger na nakasaksi sa pangyayaring iyon.

Inakap ng mahigpit ni Nora si Peque. Mahigpit na mahigpit at puno ng damdamin! Siyempre, inakap din siya ng mahigpit pabalik din ni Peque! At nagbulungan sila, tipong very personal ang mga sinasabi nila sa isa’t-isa. Inabot yata ng five minutes ang akapan at bulungan na iyon!

Ilang saglit pa, nagka-iyakan na sina Nora at Peque! Tunay namang nakakabagbag-damdamin!

Sa pangyayaring iyon, masisiguro mo talagang malalim din ang naging friendship nina Nora at Peque. Marahil, may mga pangayayari na in the past na naging madamdamin sa kanilang pareho kaya nagkayakapan sila ng gano’n…

Late na nu’ng pumasok si direk Brillante at wala siyang kaalam-alam sa nangyari. Pareho na lamang niyang inistima ng saglit ang magkalayo nang upuan nina direk peque at Nora. Maya-maya pa ay ipinalabas na ang kanyang pelikula.

jericho, nora and “ang paglalakbay ng mga bituin sa gabing madilim” wins top honos at 36th gawad urian awards (newslink courtesy of: inquirer.net)

Jericho Rosales, Nora Aunor lead 36th Gawad Urian Awards

By 

True to its tradition of awarding maverick indie productions, “Ang Paglalakbay ng mga Bituin sa Gabing Madilim” by Davao-based director-screenwriter Arnel Mardoquio was awarded “Best Film” in the 36th Gawad Urian Awards held Tuesday night at the NBC Tent in Taguig City.

Mardoquio though failed to bring home the best director trophy.

Much-awarded indie director Adolfo Alix Jr. was awarded best director for his work, “Mater Dolorosa.”

“This is for my Mom who always supported me and allowed me to nurture my love for cinema,” said Alix in his recent status on Facebook.

The awarding was hosted by Richard Gomez, Xian Lim, Cherie Gil, Butch Francisco and Iza Calzado.

The best actor went to Jericho Rosales for his work in “Alagwa,” a film by writer-director Ian Lorenons on human trafficking.

Nora Aunor, as expected, won the best actress trophy for Brillante Mendoza’s “Thy Womb.” Mendoza on the other hand won best production design for the same film.

Best Documentary award, to the delight of many, went to the enigmatic “Harana” by Benito Bautista. “Harana” tackles the nearly lost Filipino tradition of serenading ones’ love at night.

Gawad Urian is given by the Manunuri ng Pelikulang Pilipino (MPP), a group of film critics and academicians.

Its active members for the past couple of years are Rolando B. Tolentino, Grace Javier Alfonso, Butch Francisco, Mario A. Hernando, Bienvenido Lumbera, Miguel Q. Rapatan, Benilda S. Santos, Dr. Nicanor G. Tiongson, Tito Genova Valiente and Lito B. Zulueta.

The complete list of this year’s winners:

Natatanging Gawad Urian: Mila del Sol

Best Actress: Nora Aunor for “Thy Womb”

Best Supporting Actress: Alessandra de Rossi for “Sta Nina”

Best Actor: Jericho Rosales for “Alagwa”

Best Supporting Actor: Art Acuna for “Posas”

Best Documentary:  “Harana” by Benito Bautista

Best Short Film: “Ritmo” by Remton Siega Zuasola

Best Sound: Willy Fernandez, Bong Sungcang, Ferdinand Marcos Sabarongis for Lav Diaz’s “Florentina Hubaldo”

Best Music: Diwa de Leon, “Baybayin”

Best Editing: Aleks Castaneda, “Kalayaan”

Best Production Design: Brillante Mendoza, “Thy Womb”

Best Cinematograpphy: Whammy Alcazaren for “Colossal”

“Nora Aunor leads star-studded CineFilipino line-up”
By Isah V. Red

CINEFILIPINO may only be on its first year, but the new film festival has already attracted many of the country’s most acclaimed talents. Leading the star-studded line-up of this year’s festival is the Superstar herself, Nora Aunor. The Best Actress winner of the recently concluded Asian Film Awards is playing the titular role in Mes de Guzman’s much talked-about movie Ang Kwento Ni Mabuti. The emotional family drama shot in the scenic Nueva Vizcaya, tells the story of a healer named Mabuti (Aunor), who still looks at life positively despite trying times.

This year’s festival will also see Primetime Princess Jasmine Curtis-Smith making her film debut in the suspense thriller Puti. Helmed by Mike Alcazaren, Puti is a gripping tale of a counterfeit painter who starts seeing strange images after a freak car accident. The movie also stars Ian Veneracion, Lauren Young, and Bryan Pagala.

Like Jasmine, Artista Academy alumnus Akihiro Blanco gets his first film acting gig in Ato Bautista’s coming-of-age love story Mga Alaala ng Tag-Ulan. The teen actor, whose raw acting chops have often been compared to that of a young Robin Padilla, will share the screen with the sexy performer Mocha Uson as the object of his affection. Rounding up the cast are Mon Confiado, Issa Litton, Lance Raymundo, and Pio Balbuena.

On the other hand, comedienne Tuesday Vargas nabbed the lead role in the romantic comedy Ang Turkey Man Ay Pabo Rin. The Talentadong Pinoy and Loko Moko U regular will play half of the wacky Filipino-American couple in newbie filmmaker Randolph Longjas’ cross-cultural comedy. Travis Kraft will play Tuesday’s American husband.

Another laugh fest to watch out for is Ron Bryant’s entry Bingoleras. The comedy of errors based on the intersecting lives of six women playing bingo, boasts of an impressive cast led by Eula Valdez, Max Eigenmann, Charee Pineda, Mercedes Cabral, Hazel Orencio, and Lisa Dino. Other notable cast members include Lou Veloso, Junjun Quintania, Art Acuña, Cita Astals, Amay Bisaya, and Coco Martin in a special role.

Kitchie Nadal transitions from rock phenom to movie star in the music-filled youth drama The Muses by Cebuana filmmaker Janice Perez. The Muses is story of sibling rivalry in the music business where two sisters find the hidden truths about fame, family and their own selves. The film also enlisted performer Janelle Jamer as Kitchie’s sister.

Sigrid Bernardo’s poignant film Ang Huling Cha-Cha Ni Anita tells the story of Anita who falls in love with the new woman in town. Playing Anita is Jay Bordon, while seasoned character actress Angel Aquino takes the role of Pilar, the woman Anita pines for.

Siblings Sari and Kiri Dalena of the controversial entry Guerilla Is A Poet are keeping mum about the particulars of their film’s casting. However, aside from the film’s cast audiences should expect more revelations in this daring docu-drama based on the life of Martial Law activist Joma Sison.

CineFilipino Film Festival will run from June 26 to July 2.

Iba kasi ang taste ng Gawad Urian, sopistikado ang kanilang panlasa sa pelikula. Kaya hindi na kami nagtataka kung bakit nangingibabaw na naman sa taong ito ang mga indie films sa listahan ng nominees nila.

Mas mainam pa ang taste ng Gawad Urian, kasama ang Famas at PMPC Star Awards sa kanilang mga “taste” o choices of nominees. Pero sa isa pang grupo ng isang “award-giving body” kuno, na naglabas at nagdaos na ng kanilang set of nominees at awards night, sobrang tumaas ang aming kilay. Nakakapangilabot na mga resulta!

Anyway…

Kailanman ay hindi na-“tarnish” ang imahe ng Gawad Urian para sa amin. Obvious lang nga na this year, very supportive sila talaga sa mga indie film artists.

Pero isang ‘ama’ na nasa langit at isang ‘ina’ na nasa lupa ang tuwang-tuwa sa pagkakasali ni JM DE GUZMAN bilang Best Actor nominee sa taong ito sa Gawad Urian! Nominado siya para sa pelikulang “Intoy Syokoy Ng Kalye Marino”. Goodluck, JM. Sana ikaw ang manalo!

Marami ang humuhula, ang pelikulang “Thy Womb” ni direk Brillante mendoza ang hahakot ng pinakamaraming awards sa taong ito sa 2013 Gawad Urian.

Pero nakapagtataka ang pang-iisnab na ginawa ng mga taga-Urian kay direk Ato Bautista at sa pelikulang “Palitan” na unang naisip ng blogger na ito na mapapasama sa listahan ng mga nominees nila. Bakit kaya naisnab nila si direk Ato at ang “Palitan”? Nakapagtataka! ‘Yun na…

SA LAHAT NG MGA NOMINADO,

MABUHAY!!!

Nora, tsinugi na sa serye ng TV5; Rita, ipinalit

BILOG ang mundo kay Rita Avila, kung nawala siya noon sa Walang Hanggan, ngayon ay balitang siya ang papalit kay Nora Aunor dahil piñatay na ito sa serye ng TV5.

Nagwo-worry ngayon si Rita  na papalitan niya si Nora dahil baka kuyugin siya ng Noranians. Wala siyang kaalam-alam na ang nag-iisang superstar ang pinalitan niya.

Anyway, may nagsasabi naman na babalik si Nora at kunwari piñatay ang karakter.

Sige!

SINULAT NI: SWEET ROLDAN CASTRO (from HATAW tabloid)

THY WOMB: when a woman gives birth to a “rediscovered land”…

thy womb

Cinematic shots of birds shown flying freely above the ocean, a powerful view of a rainbow that guided a magical land, and a look at ‘the’ golden woman, looking-up above the skies with a new-found hope for a REDISCOVERED LAND.

These were the images that haunted this blogger while he watched the film- “Thy Womb” – the very last film he watched among all the entries of the recently-concluded Metro Manila Film Festival. And he was right to say upon himself: “I am saving the best for last”.

Though “Thy Womb” was not the best film he saw for the past year of 2012, it surely was the most haunting film of all. It was not the best because it lacked in some technicalities, but the true meaning of a truly great Filipino film was all here. It reminded him of a beautiful culture that once existed and now in danger of “extinction”, and the compassion for his fellow-brothers in Mindanao- who were also Filipinos just like him.

"thy womb" is a director's film, not an actor's film. but director mendoza found a way of showing the greatness of a Superstar.

“thy womb” is a director’s film, not an actor’s film. but director mendoza found a way of showing the greatness of a Superstar.

This blogger was so thankful. Thankful, in the sense that one international award-winning director took his time out to make a movie for the Badjaos in Mindanao. Director Brillante Dante Mendoza could have not been born in the South, and he was born in the North (he is a Kapampangan, born in the northern province of Pampanga), but his heart and soul truly went into this film about the cultural tribe of the Badjaos.

“The Badjaos could hardly walk the land”, Mr. Alex Datu (A Muslim movie scribe-colleague of this blogger) texted to us when we raved the film via text messages to him. “Because they were more comfortable with the sea. It’s their life”.

And director Mendoza surely captured that great essence. In the film, you’d feel the connection of the sea and the Badjaos. When lead actress Nora Aunor, together with co-actor Bembol Roco, failed to catch some fishes in the ocean in one the film’s most meaningful scenes, this blogger cried. It was so heartfelt to the existence of the Badjaos. The sea was their very life.

And the sea was the “symbolical image” of THY WOMB. In its literal sense, a “faded” woman who so badly wanted a child, who so badly wanted to have her life back.  It was the sea. The faded woman (Nora) and the sea were but ONE.

How could a director ever so present this very great “hidden secret” of life in such a subtle way? Simply showing images, ordinary everyday-life scenes, simple talks and humble actions?

Only director Brillante Mendoza could.

But somehow, the movie was not intented for the young. The movie was intended for the artistic people with a hope for the future. And showing this kind of film in Metro Manila Film Festival- AND ON A DECEMBER PLAYDATE- was awfully wrong. The movie could stand on its own. Independently. Not on any kind of film festivals, that, we believe.

Nora: The Superstar that never FADED.

Nora: The Superstar that never FADED.

lovi poe looked so mystifying in "thy womb".

lovi poe looked so mystifying in “thy womb”.

Superstar Nora Aunor looked so “grayish” in this film, but her DEPTH & GREAT STYLE of acting still overwhelmed this blogger. You could feel the kindness in her heart via this movie, and her eternal message of looking up above a great “Superstar”.

Her movements, body language, simple gestures- ACTED. A simple look conveyed a message. A body that bended implied a meaning. In this movie, the Superstar didn’t JUST use her eyes. She used her body to act all the more greatly. Yes, her acting talent never FADED.

But it wasn’t Nora’s character who gave birth to the “rediscovered land”. It was the character of Miss Lovi Poe, who looked so beautifully mystifying in this film. It was Lovi who gave birth to a new hope, and preserve an undying culture. All you had to do is to take it in a LITERAL FORM.

But thy womb was now living. And in the ending scene, you’d guess if Lovi died and Nora had the child, finally, in her possesion.

It was not clearly stated and presented.

And this was the most powerful message of a film ever presented to us.

THY WOMB is like the sea, with a powerful MYSTERY.

mon confiado will soon portray the character of direk celso ad castillo in the film “ang lalaking nangarap maging nora aunor”.

Nabasa na ba ninyo ng tama ang nakasulat sa itaas? Oo, si Mon Confiado. At siya ang “lalaking nangarap maging isang Nora Aunor!”

Sorry, Mon. Maski ayaw pa kasi sanang ipasulat sa amin ni Mon ang balitang ‘yan, hindi namin matiis ang aming sarili na isulat na! Kay Mon namin mismo nalaman ‘yan. Accidentally namin siyang nakita sa screening ng “Boundary” film na idinirek ni Benito Bautista. Sa Edsa Shangrila ginanap ang screening and Mon saw this blogger in our lousiest dress outfit (with matching orange shirt and faded brown shorts. Oh, my)!

direk christopher ad castillo (son of the late celso ad castillo) will direct the film "ang lalaking nangarap maging nora aunor".

direk christopher ad castillo (son of the late celso ad castillo) will direct the film “ang lalaking nangarap maging nora aunor”.

Inimbita kami ni Mon na mag-coffee somewhere. We were both so excited sa mga magagandang kaganapan na nangyayari sa kanyang film career lately. Hanggang sa hindi na napigilan ni Mon ang kanyang sarili at nagwika ng ganito: “Robert, ako na ang LALAKING NANGARAP MAGING ISANG NORA AUNOR!”

What does he mean by this????

“Ang Lalaking Nangarap Maging Isang Nora Aunor” ay isa sa mga dream projects ng yumaong si direk Celso Ad Castillo. Noon pa niya nais maisa-pelikula ito. Marami na siyang napisil na mga artistang lalaki na gaganap dapat dito, including himself (direk Celso). Pero hayan, biglang si Mon na! At sino naman kaya ang magdidirek???

“Walang iba kundi si Christopher Ad Castillo, ang anak ni yumaong direk Celso”, sey ni Mon sa blogger na ito. “Magpapataba na nga ako para magmukhang chubby dahil chubby si direk, di ba? Sa istorya, si direk Celso pala mismo ang ‘lalaking nangarap na maging isang Nora Aunor’! Semi-autobiographical pala yung film! At gusto ni direk Chris, ako ang gaganap sa role na ‘yun!”

"magpapataba ako!", sabi ni mon sa blogger na ito para maging kamukha niya ang yumaong si direk celso ad castillo.

“magpapataba ako!”, sabi ni mon sa blogger na ito para maging kamukha niya ang yumaong si direk celso ad castillo.

Pang-award ang pelikulang ito! For sure, dito na mananalo muli ng acting award si Mon! At excited din siyang makatrabaho si Christopher Ad Castillo na isa sa mga kababata niya sa industriya. Halos sabay sila ni Chris na lumaki dahil pareho silang anak ng mga kilalang tao sa industriya (Mon is the son of veteran character actor Angel  Confiado na yumao na).

Mon Confiado, Ang Lalaking Nangarap Maging Nora Aunor!

SOON.

"ang lalaking nangarap maging nora aunor" is the late celso ad castillo's dream project.

“ang lalaking nangarap maging nora aunor” is the late celso ad castillo’s dream project.

ate guy at e.r. ejercito, maghihiwalay ng float sa mmff parade of stars! (written by JOBERT SUCALDITO at bandera tabloid)

Nora & ER.

Miss Nora Aunor portraying the character of Gen. Aguinaldo’s second wife in “El Presidente”.

Gob ER Ejercito as Gen. Emilio Aguinaldo in “El Presidente”.

“ATE GUY, E.R. EJERCITO: MAGHIHIWALAY NG FLOAT SA MMFF PARADE OF STARS!”

BY MR. JOBERT SUCALDITO (originally published at: Bandera Tabloid)

 

Last year pa nasimulan ang shooting ng pelikulang “El Presidente: The Emilio Aguinaldo Story” ng Scenema Concepts. Starring Laguna Governor ER Ejercito, with no less but the one and only Superstar Nora Aunor as his leading lady.

Mama Guy (Nora)plays the second wife of Gen. Emilio Aguinaldo in the movie- a role that totally fits her- dahil yung role na ‘yun ang tunay na minahal ni Gen. Aguinaldo hanggang sa kahu-hulihang sandali.

Nabi-visualize na rin sana ng karamihan ang pagsasama nila sa float sa darating na MMFF Parade Of Stars. Kaya lang, the feelings of this thought changed nang biglang pumasok sa official entries ng MMFF (Metro Manila Filmfest) ang isa pang pelikula ni Mama Guy na “Thy Womb”.

Nalungkot si Gob ER dahil for sure, du’n sasakay si Mama Guy sa float ng “Thy Womb” since dito siya nagkaroon ng Best Actress trophy sa mga Italian critics (when the movie was shown at the Venice Filmfest this year). Kaya alam ni Gob ER na hindi na nga niya makakasama sa float ng “El Presidente” si Mama Guy.

Mahaba ang naging mga pahayag ni Gob ER ukol sa bagay na ito, pero it all summed-up to one thing: NA NAUUNAWAAN NIYA ANG SUPERSTAR KUNG HINDI MAN SILA MAGKAKASAMA SA FLOAT NG PELIKULA NILANG “EL PRESIDENTE”.

“Basta kami ni Nora, super-good kami sa mga naging performances namin sa movie namin”, nasabi pa ni Gob. “Hindi man kami magkasama sa float ng MMFF Parade, ay okey lang. Alam kong susuportahan pa rin ng mga Noranians ang movie namin.”

Balita pa, dagsa-dagsang truck ng mga Noranians ang makikigulo sa darating na MMFF Parade Of Stars. At nakakatiyak kami, dadagsa din sila sa float ng “El Presidente”!

Hindi ko sila malilimutan…

Mga pelikulang Tagalog na ninamnam ko magmula pa nuong ako ay bata pang musmos…

Mga klasiko at modernong pelikula na pang-habambuhay…

Nagmamarka, umuukit, nagmamahal-

MAGPAKAILANMAN!

 

Naririto po ang aking own personal choices (not to be contested by anyone, OK? Kasi, personal choices ko lang naman ang mga ito.- sip & sip*) para sa TOP 30 GREATEST PINOY FILMS ON LOVE STORIES!

I just hope, you will all cherish my LIST. Thank you.

 

 

(list created by ROBERT MANUGUID SILVERIO)

 

1.) DUBAI

Sip & Sip :-) Says:

“Ang pelikulang ito ang napunta sa number one list dahil sa napakagandang mensahe ng pelikula para sa bawat Pilipino. Maski ba subplot na lang dito ang pagiging OFW’s ng mga karakter na ginampanan nina Aga Muhlach at John Lloyd Cruz- dahil basically, this film is a love story between Aga and his leading lady in the film na si Claudine Barreto- mas lumutang pa rin sa pelikula ang mga moral values ng mga Pinoy. Napakaganda. Naiyak ako sa isang eksena ng pelikula na kung saan ay inakap ni Aga ang kapatid na si John Lloyd nuong ito ay maaksidente. For this blogger, this is the finest Star Cinema movie I have ever seen!”

2.) PAHIRAM NG ISANG UMAGA

Sip & Sip :-) Says:

“Napaka-‘symbolical’ na pelikula. Napaka-pulido at kahanga-hanga ng script ni direk Jose Javier Reyes sa pelikulang ito. Idinerehe ng dakilang si Ishmael Bernal. Maiiiyak ka sa istorya ng isang career-driven woman (so ‘subtlety’ portrayed by Miss Vilma Santos) na may taning na ang buhay at mamamatay sa mga braso ng isang eccentric artist na ginampanan naman ni Eric Quizon, na napakasariwa at napaka-guwapo pa nu’ng ipalabas ang pelikulang ito.”

3.) KUNG MANGARAP KA’T MAGISING

Sip & Sip :-) Says:

“Pang-teenager ang pelikulang ito na ginawa ni direk Mike de Leon nuong mid-1980’s. Ang setting ay sa Baguio. Ukol sa isang binata (ginampanan ni Christopher de Leon) na hindi maka-move-on sa pagkamatay ng kanyang girlfriend. Hanggang sa makilala niya ang misteryosang karakter ni Hilda Koronel (na napakaganda sa pelikulang ito) at sila’y nagka-ibigan. Simple lang ang istorya pero ang atake ng direktor sa pelikulang ito ay pambihira!”

4.) TAG-ULAN SA TAG-ARAW

Sip & Sip :-) Says:

“Another Vilma Santos movie, with Christopher de Leon. Ito’y sa direksyon ni Celso Ad Castillo. Ukol sa dalawang mag-pinsan na nagka-ibigan. Napakaganda ng ‘mata’ ni direk Celso Ad sa movie na ito. Kakaiba. Napaka-romantiko!”

5.) FOREVER & A DAY

Sip & Sip :-) Says:

“Two years ago lang naipalabas ang movie na ito and we can say, this is a modern-day film classic. Hindi namin malilimutan ang ending ng pelikula na kung saan ay nagpalipad ng maraming balloons ang mga characters sa movie dahil sa pagkamatay ng bidang babae (si KC Concepcion). And actor Sam Milby looked so incredibly handsome on this film!”

6.) MAYOHAN

Sip & Sip :-) Says:

“Isa itong indie film (ang nag-iisang indie film na napasali sa listahang ito) na ipinalabas sa Cinemalaya two years ago. To think na ang direktor nito ay first-timer (ang Atenistang si direk Dan Villegas), pero napakaganda ng eksekusyon niya sa pelikula. Simple, pero malalim. Ukol sa isang dalagang taga-probinsya na may mga pangarap sa buhay at maiinlab sa kanya ang isang binatilyong lalakeng galing sa Maynila. Sayang, hindi ito nagkaroon ng “mainstream distributor” para mai-showing commercially. Feel na feel namin ang pelikulang ito! At napakaganda rin dito at napakagaling ng bidang aktres na si Lovi Poe!”

7.) PAGPUTI NG UWAK, PAG-ITIM NG TAGAK

Sip & Sip :-) Says:

“Another Celso Ad Castillo film. A classic!”

8.) SAAN NAGTATAGO ANG PAGIBIG?

Sip & Sip :-) Says:

“A rare gem of a movie. Napakaganda ng ‘attack’ ni direk Eddie Garcia sa pelikulang ito. Maski ba ang pelikula ay masasabi mong isang ‘family drama’, isinama pa rin namin siya sa list na ito dahil sa napakagandang subplot ng movie: Ang pagibig na naramdaman ng bidang aktres na si Vilma Santos sa retardate na alaga niya sa pelikula na ginampanan naman ni Tonton Guttierez. Our hats-off to the story creator of this film: Ms. Gilda Olvidado with screenwriter Mr. Armando Lao!

9.) ANG ULIRAN: IMELDA

Sip & Sip :-) Says:

“Ito lang ang tanging lumang pelikula na napasama sa list na ito dahil sa napakaganda niyang tema: Ang paghahanap sa isang babaeng maaaring maging katulad ng isang ‘Imelda’. Si ‘Imelda’ ang yumaong asawa ng isang lalaking nabiyudo na ginampanan ng the late Dindo Fernando (R.I.P.) sa pelikula. Makakatagpo siya ng mga bagong babae, pero walang makahigit kay ‘Imelda’. Napakagandang pelikula!”

10.) BITUING WALANG NIGNING

Sip & Sip :-) Says:

“We can say, this is more of a classic movie than a commercial film! Kung panonoorin mo ng paulit-ulit ang pelikula, ma-appreciate mo ang great efforts ng yumaong direktor ng pelikulang ito na si direk Leroy Salvador, Jr. (R.I.P.) na gawing isang obra-maestra ang pelikula. Napakagandalang love story!”

11.) AMNESIA GIRL

Sip & Sip :-) Says:

“It’s John Lloyd Cruz’ performance in this movie that really shocked this blogger. Napakagaling na aktor!”

12.) MASIKIP, MALUWANG PARAISONG PARISUKAT

Sip & Sip :-) Says:

“Medyo ‘sexy’ ang tema ng pelikulang ito, pero ang pelikulang ito ay isang klasiko! A love story with a modern-day setting na ipinalabas nuong late 1970’s, which starred Miss Alma Moreno & Christopher de Leon.”

13.) BAKIT BUGHAW ANG LANGIT?

“Sip & Sip :-) Says:

“Ito’y sa direksyon ng the late Mario O’ Hara (R.I.P.) at pinagbidahan ni Miss Nora Aunor. Ukol sa isang api-apihang anak na iibig sa isang lalaking retardate. This is the best Mario O’ Hara film for this blogger.”

14.) KASTILYONG BUHANGIN

Sip & Sip :-) Says:

“Another Nora Aunor film, with Senator Lito Lapid as his leading man. A very powerful, yet romantic film!”

15.) NAGLALAYAG

Sip & Sip :-) Says:

“Muli, sa direksyon ni Maryo J. delos Reyes. Itinambal si Nora Aunor dito sa napakabatang aktor na si Yul Servo. This movie was greatly written by Ms. Irma V. Dimaranan. Ukol sa isang schoolteacher na iibig sa isang taxi driver na mamamatay naman sa pelikula.”

16.) WHERE LOVE HAS GONE

Sip & Sip :-) Says:

“Pinagbidahan ito nina Snooky Serna at Albert Martinez para sa Regal Films. Blockbuster ang pelikulang ito. Pero ang pinaka-kapuri-puri sa pelikulang ito ay ang napakagaling na acting ni Snooky!”

17.) PALIPAT-LIPAT, PAPALIT-PALIT

Sip & Sip :-) Says:

“Ito lang ang tanging movie na may ‘homosexual’ aspect na napasali sa list na ito. Napakagaling ni Mark Gil sa pelikulang ito bilang isang “closet queen”. Napakaganda rin ng mensahe ng pelikulang ito na ipinalabas nuong late 1970’s pa. The late Lino Brocka (R.I.P.) directed this film.”

18.) IKAW

Sip & Sip :-) Says:

“This is a Sharon Cuneta-Ariel Rivera movie. About a man dying of a sickness and a woman falling in love with him. Napakasimpleng pelikula pero tumutusok sa puso.”

19.) TEENAGE MARRIAGE

Sip & Sip :-) Says:

“The finest film on teen marriage which starred Snooky Serna and Maricel Soriano.”

20.) LAGARISTA

Sip & Sip :-) Says:

“Napakaguwapo kasi ni Piolo Pascual sa pelikulang ‘yan, eh. Haaayyyyyyyy!”

21.) DEAR HEART

22.) MILAGROS

23.) PATI BA PINTIG NG PUSO?

24.) TUBIG AT LANGIS

25.) MIRACLE OF LOVE

26.) BILANGIN ANG MGA BITUIN SA LANGIT

27.) MY OTHER WOMAN

28.) RELASYON

29.) KARMA

30.) BATO SA BUHANGIN
