20th Century Boys (Yukihiko Tsutsumi, 2008) - 5/5. Serious humor. Religious cult. Giant robots. Win!
Into the Forest of Fireflies'
Light (Takahiro Omori, 2011) 5/5. ..... nalungkot naman ako lalo. iba
yung epekto nung runtime sa kwento. parang nananadya lang.
The Vow (Michael Sucsy, 2012) 2/5. Oh well. I'll watch some very good asian film later to make up with the disappointment.
High and Low (Akira Kurosawa, 1963) 5/5 - parang novel yung feel niya. hehehehehe.
Mortal (Mario O'Hara, 1975)
5/5. Ayun, mas nauna pala ito sa Dogra Magra ni matsumoto. Narealize ko
after nito, weak talaga ang Shutter Island. XD
20th Century Boys Chapter 2: The Last Hope (Yukihiko Tsutsumi, 2009) 5/5. second film sa trilogy, ayus pa rin.
Permanent Vacation (Jim Jarmusch, 1980) 5/5. Only Jarmusch could make sadness and loneliness groovy. But, still sad.
Moneyball (Bennett Miller, 2011) 4/5. Tama si Raymond Lee, tungkol nga ito sa filmmaking. ;)
3 (Tom Tykwer, 2010) 1/5. Every time I watch a film, I always remind
myself of what my friend has told me before: everything is about love. I
never felt any love from this. Worse, it never even made to give you a
hard-on, so what to make of it? Trash.
The Temptation of St. Tony (Veiko Õunpuu, 2009) 5/5. pandagdag sa midnight film collection.
Happy Together (Kar-wai Wong, 1997) 5/5. Now, here's a Love Story.
Sa Ilalim ng Cogon (Rico
Maria Ilarde, 2005) 3/5. awkward yung dialogues, pero maganda at maayos
naman ang pagkakalarga. ang cute din nung kapatid ni Julia Clarete dito.
Carnivore (Ato Bautista, 2008) 5/5. ngayon ko lang
na-confirm, mas nauna pa pala ang Blackout dito. Mas gusto ko na si Ato
kesa kay Joel Coen.
Love on a Diet (Johnnie To|Ka-fai Wai,
2001) 4/5. di ko nasimulan, pero maganda na yung naabutan ko pagkabukas
ng tv. uulitin ko para mas sulit. Hindi masama na i-dub ito sa tagalog.
A History of Violence (David Cronenberg, 2005) 4/5. mas idol ko pa rin si Ato Bautista, XD.
Bunny Drop (SABU, 2011) 4/5.
For someone who specializes on crime films to make something like this,
is ground breaking. SABU took the story to a different atmosphere than
what it was in the comic book and the anime adaptation. It seemed
heavier here. That scene where the two kids cried in front of a grave
was fantastic. It's nice to see Matsuyama being himself here: a great
Ang Mahiwagang Daigdig ni
Pedro Penduko (Celso Ad. Castillo, 1973) 5/5, Just when I'm not sure
whether something is just plain crazy or genius, here's Ad. Castillo
playing tricks again in my head. Loved that marching band scene/fight
scene. Very signature Ad. Castillo, on bipolar extremes: there are very
charming scenes and very sick scenes. Just great for a sunday afternoon.
Watch it with your kids... or not.
Macbeth (Bela Tarr, 1982) 4/5. last scene sa 2nd long take, the best.
The Housewife (Ki-young Kim,
1960) 4/5. I never thought that this was really the Korean's definition
of Erotic-Noir. It was sexy but never was there a nude scene. Kind of a
weird feeling getting into me while watching the film. That last scene
at the stairs.... uhhm.... just... uuhhh.... uhm....
Winnipeg (Guy Maddin, 2007) 5/5. In awe in almost everything I've seen
here. Deeply personal, but also informative. I still haven't confirmed
the information Maddin has presented here, but the way he told it, is
like having a talk with a stranger while you're both sleepy on a train
Rififi (Jules Dassin, 1955) 5/5. Here's a true, straight
in your face, crime film. You never really need that all-fancy talk and
hallmark dialogues to make one. All you need, is a very quiet and solemn
jewelry store heist.
