  1. Oh well, not going to happen in the Philippines. Basta tangkilikin nyo what you feel like watching. Hayaan nyo na yung gusto ng iba.

    1. Pinoys should not be surprised anymore when quality films are not the usual norms in this business.

      While other Asian countries, for example, are doing all the best and quality films for domestic and international markets, Pinoy films are just for "audience satisfaction". Same old cookie-cutter rom-com and comedic style genres.

  4. I used to like the idea na quality films lang sana ang laman ng filmfest. But admit girl, hindi naman kayo kumikita. Pasko kasi and ung iba gusto masaya lang. Di kaya dapat ibang filmfest na lang kayo? There's cinemalaya, or di ako aware kung may iba pa. Oo na maganda movie mo but dont question ung choice ng tao kasi di naman kaw nagbayad nun.

    1. Exactly my point as well! Deserve ng taong bayan ang sumaya sa pasko. Pera nila yun at pinaghirapan and they will make sure na worth it lahat ng pera nila sa movies na papanoorin nila. Pwede naman sila sa ibang festival. Yung puro dekalidad na movies.

    2. on point, bes!

    3. NOPE. DESERVE NG TAONG BAYAN NA UMANGAT ANG TASTE SA FILMS.

    4. Dpat yung MMFF nlng ilipat ng date, wag nang makisabay sa December 25 pra di maiwasan ng mga tao magbangayan sa mga pelikulang maganda pro di patok at basura pro tinangkilik ng masa.

      Pro di yan ggwin ng MMDA ksi cash cow nila ang “basura films” ngsimula kay Vic Sotto tuloy kay Vice Ganda

    5. 1254 and 1:00 gawa po kayo ng filmfest for quality films kuno. Para di nyo panggigilan ung kumikitang movies dahil naghihingalo and napupull out bet nyo.

      And fyi. I watched both TRS and larawan. Family with trs and bf with the latter. And pareho ko sila naenjoy. Point is, pera namin gamit namin kaya maglabas din kayo ng pera di ung nangingialam at nagmamagaling kayo.

      Delete
    6. 1254, you cannot advice the moviegoers on which films to watch. Kita mo naman last year, walang nangyari sa mga dekalidad na movies. Halos lahat eh flop. I am not against sa mga dekalibreng films na to but they should not compare it with mainstream movies at lalong lalo na wag silang magrereklamo kapag pinull out sa sinehan yan dahil walang nanonood or whatsoever!!!

  5. gone were the years when people anticipate the results for best picture, actor and actress. a lot of people nowadays wait for box office returns to praise/bash the movie stars.

    2. Hahahahaha. May punto ka baks!

    3. BUmawi na lang sila sa awards, tutal dun naman talaga makikita at malalaman kung gaano kaganda ang isang movie. Basura ang revengers pero naenjoy ko to nung pinanood ko. Pasko naman so why not giva a chance the people to be happy. Besides choice nila kung ano gusto nilang panoorin.

      Delete
    4. Sa tinign nio ba pag di sinama ang the revengers at ang ibang mainstream movies na you think na basura eh mafoforce nio ang moviegoers na manood ng mga boring na movies na inooffer nio sa festival?? NO!!! tried and tested na yan last year. so wag kayong magrereklamo kung di tinatangkilik ang moview nio. AGAIN BUMAWI KAYO SA AWARDS para malaman ng publiko na maganda ang film nio. Sabi nga ni vice ang gusto lang nila eh magpasaya.

  6. I agree with Jasmine, hindi talaga dapat commercialism ang focus ng isang film festival. It really is to showcase talent ng industry and to introduce a different concept or genre. Tuwing pasko lang ang ganitong festival and rest of the year nakafocus na sa commercial and mainstream films. Medyo nakakalungkot lang na kailangan pang sa mga foreign festival pa unang makilala ang isang local film bago kilalanin sa atin.

    1. Educate yourself and bring jasmin with u. There are film festivals kasi other than mmff, like cinemalaya and cinefilipino. I think meron din ung cinemaone pero minsan ko lang ata narinig un. Bat di kayo dun sumali? And bakit hindi kayo manood? On a regular date at hindi pasko, manonood ka ba talaga? Ung totoo, may pinanood ka na ba na indie maliban sa cable ch? Wag kayo mamaru pls kung hindi nyo naman talaga pinapatronize mga yan.

  7. Pwede naman kasi gumawa ng comedy, action and adventure films na may high quality. Bakit kelangan kasing ka-cheap-cheap-an pa talaga? May point si Jasmin; filmfest nga naman. #onliindafilipins

    1. truetolife. if may foreign film enthusiast tas makaka come across our so-called filmfest makocompare tlga sa ibang film fests. nakakahiya na ganyang films ang magdedefine sa filmfest of pinas

    2. Kasi enjoy sa kakatawa ang masang pilipino!

      Delete
    3. Admit it or not, mas enjoy lang talaga kasi ang mga Pilipino tumawa sa kababawan. Kung ganun din lang naman pala ang reasoning ng nakararami, na pag Pasko kasi gusto lang ng mga tao eh yung masaya at pambata, i-rename na lang nila yung MMFF to Metro Manila Children’s Film Festival. Or Metro Manila Family Film Festival. And lahat ng entries gawin na lang nila na ganun lahat ng genre. Hindi yung may isasali pa silang de-kalidad na pelikula na di rin naman pinapanuod. Kawawa naman yung mga producer nun, di man lang narecoup ang investment.

  8. Mas marami kasi ang masa jasmine so, don't expect your movie to hit the bigtime..filipinos want to be entertained w/ slap stick movies, that's what makes them happy even just for a couple of hours to forget their problems..you're in showbusiness it's your job to entertain us! You're lucky you don't have to worry about where to get your next meal, you don't line up in the mrt or worry about rent, etc.

  9. Tama nmn si jasmine.
    Maayos nmn nyang cnabi yong opinion nya.
    Opinion lng nmn,hindi nagpipilit.

    ReplyDelete
  10. Filmfest... yes. Pero respect na lang din preference ng mga tao. Hindi mo pwede ipilit sa isang tao ang gusto mo regardless of the depth of the film. Pag comedy ba or mababaw, wala na agad quality? Kailangan ba serious films lang ang may quality? Pag patawa ba wala na agad talent? Filmfest entries should have variations for ALL types of viewers. Matuto sana sya rumispeto din kasi hindi lang naman movie nila ang pinaghirapan.

    1. True! Actually i think she feels bad that their movie is not raking in the big bucks.

      Delete
    2. But there's smart-comedy. Comedy with sense and depth. I think, you should watch more and/or other films and not just Vice's movies.

      Delete
    3. Pang developed countries lang yong smart comedy w/ sense and depth. sorry, you can't get it in third world countries!. Or else di yan tangkilikin ng madlang pipol!

    4. She's not being disrespectful.She's just sharing her opinion.kung tayo may opinion bakit sya hindi pwede mag opinion.
      She's not insisting nmn for us to watch the quality films.
      For me,gusto q mag enjoy pero yong pag uwi q nmn may natutunan aq from the movie that i watched.

    5. Siargao is a good movie.
      Para k na rin nagpunta sa Siargao.
      Yong mga artista magagaling umarte.
      For the moms out there na my anak gusto mgtravel or yong gusto magtravel mag isa,may makukuha na mga tips from the movie.
      May matutunan k from the experiences of the characters.
      Di nasayang binayad q sa panonood.

  11. Filmfest nga yon eh, tama yung sinasabi ni Jasmine, siguro nataon lang na palaging pasko ang film fest kaya may mga movies na pangbata ang tema o kaya pang comedy, sana baguhin na nila yung buwan ng Film Fest para hindi conflict sa pasko. Yung mga gustong mag enjoy kung pasko, malamang doon sila sa mga movies na pang bata. Pero yung film fest wag na nila isabay don.Ibang buwan na lang.

    1. beshie, sa pasko talga itinataon ang MMFF kasi nga ito yung time na willing magsplurge ang mga tao, at may pangsplurge ah. somehow may balik at sguradong kikita kahit na anong amovie pa yan.

  12. Ang problema dapat di na tinawag na filmfest ang MMFF. May point naman siya na dapat talento ang pinapakita sa isang filmfest. And currently, may mga pelikulang kasali na talagang di qualified to compete in a film festival. Kaya dapat buwagin na ang MMFF. Wag na ring magbigay ng mga awards. Simpleng pagpapalabas lang ng pelikulang Pilipino.

  13. Walang respeto to sa ibang artista na may mmff entries.

    ReplyDelete
  14. She has a point. Yung mga slapstick comedies pwede naman ipalabas buong taon. We should be raising the taste bar of Filipinos when it comes to movies.m

  15. sure, talent to pretend

    ReplyDelete
  16. That's why we have CINEMALAYA and other top FILM Festivals taon taon. Bakit hindi i-pursue na lang dyan ang mga pelikulang kalidad?

    Bigay na natin sa mga bata at iba pang gusto maentertain tuwing Pasko ang MMFF. Iba noon at iba ngayon. Wag nating ikumpara ang dati sa ngayon. Kaya nga may changes.

    Not saying na iitsapwera ang mga pelikula kasi kahit ako, I love quality films. Yung pang international. Dont get me wrong, I watch indie and other quality films.

    Ang sa akin lang, may lugar dapat ang bawat pelikula. At irespeto ang bawat gusto at kung anong piliin ng taong manunuod. Pera naman nila ang igagastos nila.

  18. Dami nyo hanash. Bakit pa kasi kau nag expect sa MMFF.

  19. Jasmin, hanggang ngayon di mo pa alam na ang market during Christmas mostly mga children, na gusto lang tumawa at di na mag-isip ng malalim?
    Kaya wala kang career kase di mo gets ang market.
    Masyado kang pa-impress.
    You don't even have the charisma of your Ate Anne.

    ReplyDelete
  20. 2:05pm- may career sya di mo lang matanggap.
    masama ba kung magsabi sya ng opinion nya.
    kesa nmn sa u negative mag isip.
    May punto sya,dimo lang magets.
    At saka do not compare her wd her sister kc mgkaiba cla ng gusto when it comes to doing films.

  21. Wag ilagay sa December ang MMFF. Tapos.
