    3. Yan pala si Erik Matti. Hawig ko pala siya.

    4. he is making a hasty generalization because he's having an artist block. Its like a writer's block or a mental block. Yung hindi ka na makagawa ng bago sa iyong craft. Well, that is not the problem of Philippine Cinema, maybe it is Matti's own problem.

      Delete
    5. panong bitter?He is an expert on his field and I can just imagine his frustration.. Ako mga im just a regular person and the local movies just upset me everytime.. Rated A daw .But after watching ,I can tell its just a poor copy cat of a foreign movie, kung di naman rehashed version lang ng ibang local blockbusters. Sayang creative juices ng mga direktor tulad nya because very few patronize original and novel films.

    6. Truth hurts. He tells the truth.

    7. 634 ako nman I will never ever watched movies na sobrang hype. Maski pa anong gype ng mga fantards. Kasi usually pinoy film very predictable na yan
      Lol, I'd rather watch netflix.

    8. npag iiwanan ang fil cinema, kse kulang sa creativity and originality. stuck n lng tayo sa kabitan

    9. Tinamad ako basahin hindi dahil mahaba, kundi dahil lagi namang ganyan si Matti. Bitter pag may ibang namamayagpag na pelikula other than his. Hindi lang talaga ganon ka enticing mga pelikula nya

    10. 6:34 he is not an expert in this field.Wala nga siyang international citations like Brillante Mendoza or Segion Reyna.So hindi siya expert,he is still mediocre.

    11. 634 expect, but can't make good movies?

    12. Tama ka dyan at semplang sa takilya ang huling horror movie na si sharon pa ang bida

    15. 4:52 you need accolades and citations if your claim to fame is you are the Showbiz authority or you are an expert in Philippine cinema.Otherwise,who will respect you?

  3. Hollywood guilty din dyan. Sa Vampire Diaries nga ang daming loop holes para mabuhay ang main characters. Pati sa the walking dead yun kay Glenn na nagtago sa ilalalim ng basura.

    1. Add mo pa ang Game of Thrones Seasons 7-8 na hay naku, nawala ang sense except sa admirable VFX, production team etc. Storylines that gone awry ang peg.

      Also, true naman sabi ni Erik Matti. The Pinoy film industry got stuck with the usual rom-com, repeated genres of the moment.

      Instead of breaking new grounds with new, fresh and unique materials, doon na lang all the time sa cookie-cutter formulaic type.

      Delete
    2. Omg, super wrong kayung dalawa. You know nothing. These shows are fantasy shows. They are not based on reality. They have zombies, dragons, sorcerers or witches, a character that can change faces or come back to life numerous times, etc. They are like Lord of the Rings, beautifully made and well acted, unlike pinas films. Gets ninyo.

      Delete
    3. maybe because before coming up with a Hollywood movie they put in a lot of research before the project.Hindi tulad dito na pito pito, fantasy nga pero in 1 month tapos na. Yung Hollywood may mga pelikulang 2 years in the making kaya maganda.

      Delete
    4. 7:01. Ke fantasy man yan may magical laws pa rin na sinusunod yan na nabanggit o nangyari sa mga previous episodes. Tapos mababali yung law na yun para mabuhay ang bida..

  6. Getz ko Direk! Pero ayaw na nga po ng mga tao manood ng pinoy movies. Hindi dahil sa quality but so many factors. Economic, weather, Netflix, Hbo tv shows & movies etc... So, try na lang mag produce ng new genre and new story. Kumbaga, parang Lotto na lang. Kung magustuhan ng tao eh di Jackpot!

  7. Tama sya... dapat may mabago... sa totoo lang napaka low quality ng mga series at movie ng pinoy... sana mabago ang kalakaran... like sa series o teleserye sana nakalatag na agad ang storyline tapos ipapalabas lang pag halfway done na ang shootings at tapings at editing para plantsado... sa ngayon kasi ang kapakaran taping ngayon edit ngayon palabas mamayang gabi... tsaka dapat 1 season lang muna per series tapos pag pumatok tsaka i renew pero tapusin muna season 1 tapos isaayos muna story para sa season2 wag yung agad agad ipapasok ang season 2 na magiging paikot ikot na ang story... sana talaga mabago ang sistema!

  8. If only the film industry will consistently make quality movies instead of having the typical slapstick formula. the mmff is such a joke seeing most of the entries with vic, vice and perhaps another installment of the really tired shake rattle and roll. quality must trump commercial viability so pinoy audience will be conditioned that what they will watch is worth every dime. yes people want to be entertained but enterianment must be achieved by appealing to a variety of emotions AND intellect. bobo ba ang pinoy audience? we need to up the ante bec this is how the industry will overcome its current challenges.

  9. Ayan na naman sya. Pero nung may nagbigay ng ibang klaseng movie tinawag nya na thesis-level. Never din sya nagmention na mag pinanood sya ng local movie. Puro hollywood or ibternational films lang pinapanood nyan.

Maybe the audience will slowly be captivated again by something different. Hindi yung whine ng whine for the sake of whining.

  11. Kahit naman dito sa amin sa North America. Hindi na rin nanonood masyado ng movies ang mga tao. Kasi lahat accessible na sa internet. Ang pinapanood na lang ng mga tao yung mga much anticipated movie like Marvel, Disney, DC etc... pero mga 1-2 weeks lang yan. And then ang mga tao sa Illegal download sa internet na manonood. Sa Pinas ganon din. Infact di na nga alam ng mga big producers kung anong formula ang gagawin para lumabas & gumastos ang movie goers.

    1. Marvel, DC at Disney 1-2 weeks? movie theaters are still crowded after a month kaya we usually wait kung hindi namin gusto makipagsabayan sa pila or go to drive in.

  12. Direk gawa lang kayo ng gawa ng quality movies. Walang pumipigil sa inio. Just dont expect na kikita yan that much. At hindi mo pwedeng iimpose sa mga moviegoers na panoorin ang movie mo kung ayaw nila. Gone are the days na pinipilahan ang quality movies. Millenial na ngayon. Ang gusto ng tao matawa at kiligin hindi mastress at malungkot. Kaya wag masyado magparinig. Sobrang bitter mo. Kabuseeettt

  16. Sa dami kasi ng problem ng pinoy, ayaw na nilang manood ng problema din or yung may mga social relevance. They just want to entertain, yung feel good movies, yung nakaka-relate sila, gusto nilang tumawa & kiligin . And that’s Pinoy! Yung talaga sila. But try din nilang gumawa ng Iba or something different, baka sakaling magustuhan nila but no guarantee na magiging blockbuster.

  17. Kayo may kasalanan n’yan kase masyado kayong pa-deep kaya gumagawa kayo mismo ng sarili n’yong multo. No one needs a completely groundbreaking never been done story. People want what they want. That’s it. It’s not rocket science. You’re overthinking kaya hindi kayo makagawa ng maayos na produkto. You want it all. Critical acclaim and commercial box office? That’s rare. No one can have it all, Sir. In any industry, there are genres that cater to the mass market and those that are niche. That’s why in music, you have pop. In movies, you have mainstream commercial movies. The intellectuals kuno sneer at these genres like they’re more superior than the rest who enjoys these. Truth is, each genre has its own redeeming qualities and they all exist so that everyone can have a fill of what they want according to their tastes so it’s useless to question this much. Stop overthinking. Stop complaining. If you want profit, give the public what they want. If you want to go outside the box, risk losing the money. It’s one or the other. But never dictate to the public what they should and they shouldn’t want to see. That’s just condescending, snobbish, rude and ignorant. Respect everyone’s choices.

    1. siguro naisip ni Matti sa tagal na niya sa industriya wala pa siyang napapatunayan. Gusto niyang maging batikan like Brillante Mendoza sa Cannes but he never had the chance kaya palaging parang may pinaglalaban.

    2. Brillante Mendoza and his work looked timeless and has that international appeal after his Cannes success. Not only that but Brillante was lowkey and he let his projects speak.

    3. I agree with this, of course arthouse films will never match yung hatak ng mainstream movies. Ever. Even sa hollywood films dumb movies like the fast and furious franchise eh pinipilahan time and time again...parang enteng kabisote lang or shake rattle and roll. Sa sobrang tagal ng dalawang movies na yan sa takilya sobrang lalim na ng connection niyan sa pinoy pop culture. Yung mga audience who grew up watching those movies will most likely take their children to watch the same movies as well. That's just how people are. Hindi yung mga movies na yun ang problema...i feel like it's the fact na wala kang means na i-market or ipromote ang movie mo sa pinas unless you are part of the two networks...or you suck at promoting like matti na lalong nagalienate ng viewers with his rants. Wala kang chance ng TV guesting, etc. unless artista ka sa major networks, and even sa ganung cases kung ang movie ay hindi produced by star cinema or viva eh hindi ka masyado makakapag promote, just a brief mention sa news and thats it. I dunno if it's a matter of taste, people just don't know about what a movie can offer cause walang platform (apart from the internet) kung saan pwedeng mapagusapan ang movie, maexpose yung cast, etc. Dahil din dun kaya tye audience tend to end up making assumptions about the movie (bakit di sikat ang cast, mukhang mabigat ang plot, etc.). Pero pag nabigyan ng hype, posible naman na pilahan din ang "ibang" movie. Who would think na may manunuod kela empoy, john arcilla, etc. as lead until nagkaroon sila ng buzz sa social media?

      Delete
    4. Correct! There were movies out there exploring different genres, it's just hindi talaga tinatangkilik ng masa. Sa dami ng mga film festivals natin ngayon showcasing different types of genre, madaming pagpipilian ang Pinoy masses and yet ayaw nila. So wag sisihin kung mas kumikita pa rin ang mainstream films.

    5. Mahaba comment mo pero may sense. Eto best comment para sakin...

    6. Maski sino naman matinong director, ma disappoint kung ang mga blockbuster na movies sa Pinas, ay yung mga fan based lang ang dating ng stories. In this digital world, naging mababaw na din ang utak ng mga tao.

    7. ang mga pelikula ay may kanya kanyang target audience. Ngayon kung masyadong deep at hindi na maarok ng nasa middle class ang pelikula mo, time to rethink your formula.

  18. Even if the premise may sound cliche, there is beauty in a story done really well as to make the cliche 'fresh' again. I think your cynicism and self importance has missed that mr matti.

  20. Sorry to break it to you, Sir but what’s quality for you may be trash for another person. Kaya ho tayo may kanya kanyang genre na tinatangkilik kase iba iba ng taste ang bawat isa. Hindi ko alam saan n’yo nakuha ‘yung thinking na kayo ang may karapatan mag dikta kung ano ang quality at hindi at kung ano ang dapat panoorin ng mga tao. You have no right to impose what the audience should like and you have no right to discredit movies or projects that earned because the audience liked them better than what you considered quality. So entitled.

  23. The movie industry isn’t dead. It’s just the audience will always prefer lt pabebe movies. Proof is the fact the only 2 box office movies this year so far were headlined by lts or had the same star cinema love story formula.

    5. I just watched sa Netflix "Ang babaeng allergic sa wifi". Am sure it did not make a killing in the box office. Hindi kasi mag LT ang mga artista. I was pleasantly surprised na maganda siya. Feel good love story. Hindi siya pakilig lang and may depth pa. This is the type of love story which is worth watching...

    7. 8:18 both those movies were pabebe, nothing that hasn’t already been done before. Recycled love story plots with recycled drama plots. Actors are well known pabebe actors esp the latter.

      Delete
    8. Ang babaeng Allergic sa wifi is a better movie than yon pabebeng movie. Tamang tama yon execution, walang unnecessary scenes or characters na hindi naman na kailangan pa sa movie. Pinagisipan din yon musical score. Spot on yon mga narrative ng characters. Walang heavy scenes or iyakan pero ramdam mo. Overall magaling na filmmaker si jun lana. Hindi nga lang sikat yon mga artista kaya hindi sinuportahan ng masa.

  24. I’m sick of the pa-woke, pa-intellectual types who just loves to discredit and invalidate the successes of other people. Hindi patay ang industry. People will watch your projects if they enjoy it. Stop being so haughty, try to be authentic to yourself and maybe it will shine through your body of work and gain the public’s support.

  32. nagkakaganyan na naman yan kasi tumabo sa takilya yung pinalabas na pelikula nun higanteng network. nainggit na naman. feeling kasi ng Matti na yan na dapat mas panoorin pelikula niya dahil high quality kaysa sa ibang pelikula na iniisip niya na basura. eh pareho pareho lang naman silang walang ma-idish na bago. Akala mo kung sinong magaling.

  36. Direk Erik, improve on your craft naman kasi. Wala akong nagustuhan sa mga movies mo kahit ano pa genre. Kung gusto nyo po magbago tungo sa kaunlaran ang Philippine movies eh simulan nyo po sa sarili nyo. May mga asian directors na po na nakapenetrate sa Hollywood. James Wan director of Fast and Furious and Aquaman, and now Chloe Zhao director or Eternals. Mag level up po tayo sa skills as writer director.

  37. Depende rin kasi sa ekonomiya at takbo ng estado ng buhay ng nakararami yung mga kumikitang pelikula lately. Bakit puro “mababaw”? Kasi ang daming Pinoy na gusto lang makalimot sandali sa nangyayari sa paligid o personal na buhay niya. Sa US, uso superhero movies, kasi kung titignan mo parang it’s wishful thinking na may ganun sila in real life dahil sa samu’t-saring violent acts na nagaganap dun. Nireremake o nirereboot yung mga popular pambata movies at shows kasi it reminds people of their happier childhoods nung wala pa silang iniintindi na adulting problems. Maraming bansa ang ganyan. That doesn’t mean wala ng quality movies na lumalabas. Kahit satin meron pa, you just have to look beyond the mainstream naman.

    Also, Erik Matti should stop being condescending to people who watch these movies. Di nya pera yan, hindi nya alam pinagdadaanan at rason ng mga tao na yan. That’s not the way you convince people to listen to you, kasehodang may punto rin naman mga sinasabi niya.

  41. 3 days script-writing?! No wonder basura talaga Filipino movies. Suicide Squad had its script written in 6 weeks but it was still deemed mediocre. Yung Mr Sunshine na kdrama, years pinag-isipan yung storyline kaya naman ang ganda ng result, tight yung story. Meanwhile sa Probinsyano, paulit-ulit nalang dialogue kasi ang dami-dami na nilang characters who do nothing but grimace when the camera is focused on them. Usually in one episode, they say one line and that's it! Puro nalang filler dialogue. Michael de Mesa is probably rolling his eyes at the inane lines he had to say.

    1. So true. I just watch Tarintino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. It’s a comedy-drama but it’s beautifully made. The comedy is so natural, nothing is forced and the 60s look and set are so meticulously presented. They even transformed the Hollywood strip as it was in the 60s and it looks so authentic. And of course they have first rate actors giving the story and the script life.

  42. Tama naman talaga si direk.movies should be a medium for education and culture. example talaga ang magic temple, na hakot awards noon sa mmff at box office hit din. Legit entertaining, pampamilya at may matututunan. Sana ganun pa rin ang mmff ngayon.

    Glad to see the pista ng pelikulang Pilipino is somewhat like that. Sana PPP na lang sa Pasko at ibasura na ang mmff.

  47. Direk switch ka na sa LT na pakilig love stories. Huwag mo ng gamitan ng utak pag gawa ng script. Sayang lang, lagyan mo lang ng konting tweak and spend a lot on marketing hype para pati taga bundok, mapanood yung masa movie mo. For sure, maging blockbuster ito maski mababaw lang siya...

  50. He has a point. I don't think it's negative at all. The problem is the audience is the boss and filiponos like cliches - love teams, kilig, sampalan, api-apihan, you name it. Producers do not care about the quality. They care about their return of investment.

  51. Middle class pinoys ang main audience ng mga pelikulang pinoy. Sila rin yung captured market ng abscbn/star cinema. Kaya sensibilities nila ang hinahabol ng mga movie concepts ngayon.

    Ayaw ng middle class sa mga pelikulang puro kahirapan at social injustices ang pinapakita. Di sila nakakarelate. Bakit? Kasi nagbabago na rin ang pilipinas. Ilang taon na rin tayong more than 5% ang gdp growth rate taon-taon. Bukod sa di masulosyunang traffic eh umuunlad ang pilipinas sa ibang aspeto. Tumataas ang purchasing power ng mga tao, nagkakatrabaho, nakakapagtravel, nakakakain sa mga restaurants, nakakabili ng condo sa high rise buildings, nakakapagdrive ng sariling kotse o nakka-afford mag-grab. Yung mga blighted areas nagigentrify na ng paunti-unti. Ano bang gustong ipakita ni erik matti, yung pelikula nyang nagbabarilan sa walang katapusang slum area, na mistulang zombie ang mga tao. Walang lugar sa pilipinas na ganon kadesperado. Yung miďdle class na bibili ng tiket sa sine hindi na makakarelate sa kanya. Gusto nila ng pelikulang tungkol sa middle class concerns nila.

    At sa totoo lang hindi rin naman ganon kataas ang quality ng mga indie films na artsy fartsy ngayon. Nakakasawa na yung poverty porn. Nagpakita lang ng slum area, akala mo intelektwal na. 80's pa yang mga ideyang yan, at wala rin naman napuntahan. Nabubuhay na lang sa utak ng mga makakaliwang college students na wala rin namang alam. Kung sila ang masusunod at tatangkilikin yang art nila, magagaya lang tayo sa venezuela na ngayon ay nagugutom.

    Samantala patuloy ang pag-unlad ng pilipinas. From low to upper middle income economy. Kelangan makisabay ang pelikulang pilipino sa zeitgeist ng panahon

  53. I've admired the works of Lars Von Trier, Quentine Tarantino, and Park Chan-wook. And I tell you, their films are not for the faint-hearted or the easily offended. It caters only to a few groups of people but they are respected in their genre. Although not all people support their films and are not considered box-office material, I just don't hear any news of them ranting on social media how most people don't support their works. They just continue to make more films whether you watch it or not.

  56. Tanong ko lang dito sa mga commenters:

    1. Ano po ba ang klase ng pelikula na gusto nyo mapanood?
    2. Ano ba ang hinahanap ng pinoy audience sa isang pelikula para lumabas kayo ng bahay, bumili ng tiket at panoorin ito?

    Minsan kasi ang pinoy audience bibigyan ng matinong pelikula pero hindi papanoorin, pero bigyan mo ng adobo araw araw so to speak, hindi magsasawa, gaya ng romcom kahit paulit ulit na story yun pa rin ang gusto.

    1. Baks, nakakaumay din ang adobo araw araw. Kung madiskarte kang tao, pwde mo gawin yon adobo mo filling sa siopao or tacos, or gawin sandwich. Dapat ganon ang filmmakers dapat marunong sila maginnovate. Ang problema dito yon masa na gusto lang lagi ng plain adobo, may mga filmmakers/producers na gusto safe ang lutong adobo nila, yon alam nila kakainin ng masa. Nagutom tuloy ako, buti naghumba kami lol.
