To be fair, ang daming visually-arresting images dito lalo na yung mukhang natatabunan ng lupa at yung use ng red string. May feel siya ng current Hollywood horror movie. Yung di puro cheap jump scares na lang. Kaso problema rin na hindi siya nakakatakot at all.

Aliw na aliw ako sa call center setting na nasa isang abandoned hospital tapos literal na production floor na agad paglabas ng elevator. Ano kayang mga grievance and appeals ng mga agents dito maliban sa amoy chloroform tapos parang nagtitipid sila ng kuryente?

Lakas ng tawa ko nung yung COO ng company na si Mylene Dizon ay nagmamasid sa mga agents mula sa second floor at nakikinig sa call-handling skills nila. Kabog niya lahat ng kilala kong terror QAs. Tenga lang pala niya ang katapat ng call monitoring systems. Feedback agad for immediate coaching.

Hindi ako masyadong impressed noon kay Krystal Brimner sa Honor Thy Father. Pero iba ang galing niya dito as a possessed girl. Ang ganda ng transitions niya from being helpless and innocent to sinister and creepy.

The best for me na hindi si Susan Africa ang may TB dito for a change. Kaso kelangan ba talaga na gawin siya kamukha nung internet viral sensation na si Momo?

The Best Pinoy Films of 2015

1

With the abundance of quality films last year, my biggest challenges involved time and accessibility. The cliche that there were too many movies and too little time had never been more apt. The lack of easy access because of limited theaters or just plain proximity (probably next time QCinema!) obviously didn’t help. Still, I was lucky enough to see some real greats last year.

The list begins after my sorry-not-sorry disclaimer below.

Farewell and thank you 2015!!
