Pinoy – 2010

MULI (Adolf Alix, Jr., 2010)

This is probably one of my least favorite Alix movies.

The gay theme just seems to be out of place in the heavily political setting. It’s hard to feel for the central characters when the movie doesn’t really establish much of their love story. They just seem to be two confused people in need of a fuck buddy. Sid Lucero gives a powerful performance that sadly is not matched by Cogie Domingo.

They find love in a hopeless place. So what?

IN YOUR EYES (Mac Alejandre, 2010)

The movie, the characters, and the storyline were all completely despicable. It was hard to root for anyone in this awful movie because the characters probably weren’t written to make clear judgements.

Don’t get me started on the horrendous non-acting of Richard Gutierrez. Stupid decisions were made, improbable outcomes happened, and then the movie had the gall to fast-forward two years later where the characters simply forgot everything that happened and lived happily ever after. “Hey, you made out with my sister but that’s okay since we all have green cards now. Let’s fix our relationship and forget everything. Call me maybe?”

You would definitely want to take a long cold shower to remove this much filth from your mind.

RPG METANOIA (Luis Suarez, 2010)

RPG Metanoia had this great montage set to APO’s Bawat Bata with the kids playing piko & sipa & tumbang preso. Made me miss my childhood.

The animation could have been more fluid and the kids’ voices more distinct but it’s just pure nitpicking.

This Pinoy cartoon is still very impressive.

Solid effort for the country’s first CGI movie. Entertaining for kids and adults, gamers or not.
