  1. Do you have a budget of more 30 million dollars to make a movie? I think not.

    2. Bakit ang indie low budget and yet critically acclaimed. Wala sa big budget yan nasa creativity ng writer yan and attention to detail ng director.

    6. CRA is a Hollywood movie based on an Asian American book. It's not the same and we have a long way to go.

    7. 12:51 literal talaga? pag yaman, pera lang naisip mo?
      pwede naman na imbes slums at basura, beaches ang ipakita since dun may maipagyayabang tayo

    8. You are right. It’s all about production value and a good movie need to have the right budget. The right actors who can act, set, music, script, storyline, execution, wardrobe, good editing, cinematography, promotion, etc.

    9. I agree. They spent 30 million dollars to make Crazy Rich Asian’s and it shows. Philippines don’t even spend a few million dollars to make a movie.

      Delete
    10. Yes, with not enough budget, the can’t make good quality movies in pinas. Indies are very cheap to make and have the imotional tug for the international critics.

  2. Artsy daw kasi kapag may grime, dirt, drugs, poverty, killings, and tons of garbage sa paligid.

    1. Ikr we had our share of all these artsy daw movies na tbh ndi enticing panuorin.

    2. Very low lang ang budget niyan kasi. That’s the main reason. Cheap to make. No need for lavish sets, wardrobes or production value.

  3. Tama nga naman. Infer napaisip nga ako.

  4. Meh, send shallow, pabebe at pakilig nonsense pinas movies to international market? You’ll be laughed at.

    1. You are certainly not in the field of literary arts. So, please shut up if you have no idea about the craft. Ignorant! 😆

      Delete
    2. 1:30 certainly, neither do you. Do shut up ka rin

      Delete
    3. Tama ka. Low quality pinas movies are not competitive at all.

  5. Oo nga—puro drugs, patayan, political distress, squatters aguy!!! Pwede namang happy movie

    2. na over na sa love team mga pinoy. pati mga matanda na love team parin.

  6. yan din ang tanong ko! Puros na lang kahirapan at drugs at basura ang theme ng mga indie movie na pinapadala sa mga international film festival. Oo alam ko na it's reality pero hinid lang naman yun ang reality sa Pilipinas. Nakakahiya isip tuloy ng mga ibang lahi ganon sa Pilipinas everywhere you go at lahat tayo dugyot.

  7. true! sana makapag produce tau ng romcom na tatangkilikin sa ibang bansa. Katulad na lang sa Thailand saka South Korea.

    ReplyDelete
  8. Ewan ko pero napaka ordinary ng story ng movie. Hindi ganitong klase ng movie ang gusto ng Hollywood. Matagal pa bago masundan uli. Katulad ng Joyluck club.

    1. Agree ako. Typical rich chinese family na ayaw sa girl. Cliche.
      Dami ng ganyang romcom sa pinas. Yun ba gusto nyang imarket abroad?

      Delete
    2. Sorry to burst your bubble, but the second installment of Crazy Rich Asians is already underway. Major box office hit siya worldwide dear.

      Delete
    3. Dyan ka nagkakamali. Nag greenlight na ng sequel ang Warner Brothers kasi Box office hit sya

      Delete
    4. Pareho tayo baks kahit ako di ako nagandahan sa movie, rich guy and poor girl dami nyan sa mga asian serye, extravagant version nga lang yon production nila. Atchaka distracting din yon pagkacrossed eye ni constance wu.

      Delete
    5. IMO the love story is a guise. The book aims to show the lifestyle (and perhaps make fun?) of the really rich Chinese families specifically in SG. Read a comment before that the characters were inspired by real people and that feathers were ruffled when the book first came out.

      Delete
    6. Except the book glorifies the racism and classism of rich Chinese families. It fails to satirize it

  9. akala tuloy ng mga tiga ibang bansa na clueless o hindi pa nakarating dito that Philippines is so Filthy, panget at mabaho , slums lahat ng tirahan ng mga tao.

  10. Yun 7 Sundays or parang Tanging Yaman or Magnifico type of movies Sana. Gastusan pa para mas lalong pulido yun storya at gawa. Hindi believable Kung puro yayamanin ipapakita. Yun mga values ba like family and faith na malakas sa atin bilang mga Filipino Sana yun naman.

    1. I agree sa mga movies na nabanggit mo. Isama na rin yung movie na 4 sis & a wed. Sad lang mas tinatangkilik kasi ngayon ang mga pabebe movies

  11. We have a surplus of romcoms that highlight pinoy culture. Favorite nga ng star cinema yun. Pero di lang talaga bumebenta sa ibang bansa at sa totoo lang, di rin kabentabenta.

    1. Medyo kinulang kasi sa production value #fact

      Delete
    2. Rushed kasi ang movies ng big production houses now. Daming glitches kaya nakakainis din maglabas ng pera for such works.

      Delete
    3. Recycled ang mga storylines at wala din ka kwenta2x. If di madiliin baka. Kaso shooting sila ngayon, next month showing na. Gustong kumita agad kaya strategy nila, kunin yung mga sikat. Kahit bano ang acting at pangit ang story, sure silang kumita cz of their fans na paulit-ulit nanuod to achieve blockbuster success.

    4. 1:19 pm, in other words, kasalanan din ng fantards na tinatangkilik yung mga puchu puchu movies basta lang kiligin sila at manalo ng BOQ/K idol nila.

      Delete
    5. Para sa pinas lang yan. Kahit ano pwede na. Not good enough for international audience. International audience are much more sophisticated. Pinas movies are too obvious and manipulative - corny scenarios, too loud, too noisy, OA acting, too emotional, recycled stories, etc.

      Delete
  12. Let’s face it, hindi naman talaga tinatangkilik yung mga movies tungkol sa drugs, patayan, barilan, kahirapan. Kung gusto makipagsabayan ng Pilipinas magfocus na lang sa love stories at romcoms. Kita mo Korea, Taiwan and China sobrang popular sila sa romcoms and love stories nila. Kahit na may language barrier talagang pinapanood kahit ng ibang nationalities kasi magaganda talaga.

    2. True!!! Halos lahat ng mh co worker ko, they watch korean drama - kahit na subtitles lang.

  13. i think most are missing the point - it's quality that counts para mapansin ang pinoy films internationally. hindi kesyo negative or positive ang image ng pinas sa movie.

    1. Exactly. Yang mga K-drama na yan kaya umaappeal kahit abroad kasi a lot of them are well made. Kaso yung mga commercial romcom na ginagawa dito puro mga muntik nang gumanda at bihira ang talagang masasabing maganda yung kwento. Hirap ibenta kapag yung mga kwento e mga pinagtagpi tagping kwento mula sa ibang foreign films. Di naman nilalahat pero ang rare kasi ng maayos na kwento. Pano mo ilalako yung ganun kung kinopya lang din sa gawa ng iba, diba. E napanood na nila yun. Just saying, while matindi na progress over the last 5 years or so, konting push pa para talagang gumanda ang karamihan ng mainstream movies.

    2. 2:03 agree. The problem with philippine movies and teleserye parang kulang sa originality. Same formula. Tapos production wise parang stuck in the 70s. Yung mga cg diyosme laos. If I was stuck watching pinoy productions only I wouldn't know better and mapapa wow ako.

      Delete
    3. The problem with filipino teleserye are, very predictable. Sampan, kidnapan, pagtataksil and halos lahat ng dialogues e pro galit... They need to showcase the foods sang and local products, per waley.

  14. Sana makapag produce tayo ng movie featuring mga tourist spots natin. Pero syempre dapat with nice story pa rin. Diba, di lang movie na offer mo, pwede pang maakit foreigners na bumisita dito.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Kaya hindi mabebenta internationally ang phil movie kasi wala originality. Halata agad ng foreigners na adaptations kaagad
    . At saka stop showing violence. Sobra na akala Tuloy ganoon buhay pilipino.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Kasi hindi yan ang kind of movies sa International Film Festivals. Hindi nila type ang Romcom. Eh kung puro romcom lang eh di halos lahat na sana ng films sa hollywood kasali at pinalabas na sa international film fest. Mas gusto rin nila ang ibang genre. There's more to movies than romcom.

  17. Baket isang entry Lang lagi ang pinapadala ng pilipinas sa oscars. Hindi ba pede maraming entry para more chances of winning!

    1. 1 film per country lang po according to the rules ng Oscars for equal treatment. Unfair kasi kung multiple enries ang mga country. Pano yung mga country na maganda ang quality ng film, matatabunan yung mga not so great film.

  18. Kuya Janno Bigs, hindi kasi pang international film fest ang romcom. Nakuha ka lang ng CRA sa bonggang production design nila lol.

  19. I have a classmate from Nigeria and he watched Mara Clara favorite daw nila magkakapatid yun. Then he asked kung normal ba sa pinas ang nagkakapalitan ng anak?

  20. Janno bigs is on point.

  21. sabihin nyu yan ke Brillante Mendoza...hahaha!

  22. Kung maka exactly naman si gretchen. Mapera ka di ba? Eh di magproduce ka ng pelikulang magpapa-angat sa Pilipinas. Puro hanash wala naman ginagawa para masolusyunan ang nirereklamo nya.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Pede naman kasi gumawa ng slice of life topic tapos gagamitan ng movie "magic" kung papaano ito ipapakita sa mga tao. Pero paano kasi panay pabebe din naman concept ng commercial films natin...

    ReplyDelete
  24. Bwahaha! Nakakatawa ang reading comprehension niyo. Wala naman sinabi si Janno Gibbs na dapat puro love story lang ang mga Pinoy movies. Ibig sabihin lang niya dapat happy or positive ang mga movies. Hindi yung puro kahirapan at problema sa droga.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Agree ako kay Janno Gibbs. Although love ko naman ang mga violent indie films, bigyan din naman ng chance ang mga light romantic/comedy movies with high quality. Matagal naman na tayong "woke" sa mga nangyayari sa bansa natin eh. Bakit kelangan pa ipalabas? Ang labas kasi parang nanonood ka lang ng news na ginawang fiction. Like, lagi na lang crime fiction. Medyo nakakasawa lang kung laging ganun.

    ReplyDelete
  26. look, filmmakers in the international market are looking for awards. poverty porn sells in the awards market. yang opulence na gusto iportray ni janno, eh di mabebenta. CRA is based on a book that was a hit. producers took a chance with it. the production cost is not cheap obviously. anyway, if the movies janno wants will be made, i'm sure, di siya kasama sa cast.

    ReplyDelete
  27. may market ba? eh, puro foreign films naman pinapanuod ng local viewers. tapos, imbis na isupport ang local, ipapirate pa. anyway, sabi nga ng isang aktor noon, sa 10 pelikula ng is movie outfit, 1 lang ang matino, kinailanganang kita ng 9 para magawa yung isa.
