    1. We all grew up with 90s Disney movies. Cinderella is the only one that made sense because of the actors, story and director.

      Beauty and the Beast -- wrong cast, pa-woke inclusion sa story. No chemistry si Beauty and Beast mismo. Bland and rubbish. No acting rin naman kasi si Emma Watson.

      Aladdin -- I didn't bother to watch even if it was shown on HBO and Fox Movies. Wrong cast rin.

      Lion King -- bland and blah rin. They made it into a Beyonce-me me movie.

  3. Just finished watching Mulan today and nagustuhan ko naman. Magaling si Yiu Lifei as Mulan and she delivered the character well. Siguro mga 1000000x better ito compare sa Gagamboy ni Erik Matti haha

    1. 12:28 for you. But for me (im sure n im not the only one), ang bland nya. Most of her scence, ang deadz ng eyes nya lalo n sa action scenes.

    2. nawatch ko to kahapon, maganda naman. medyo iniba yung kwento sa huli, pero andun pa din yung ganda ng pelikula. taas naman ng standards ni eric. gawa ka din kaya ng pangmalakasang movie, hiyang hiyang ang mulan sa pedro penduko at magic temple.

      Delete
    3. 6:11 gurl paano nsama dito ang magic temple??? Hndi director si Matti nito, he's just one of the writter. Also, Magic temple is one of the best MMFF movie.

    4. I liked it too. I appreciate the fact na hindi sya kopyang-kopya ng animated film (hello, The Lion King). Kumbaga, mas umeffort sila creatively na bigyan ng changes ito para sa generation na ito ngayon. I understand the comparison lalo na kung kinalakihan natin yung animated Disney films at minahal natin but I hope we are also welcome to changes. Mas bet ko yun kesa frame by frame copy of the animated film. Also, love that the fight scenes are epic and elegant at the same time. May kilabot factor din yung pag-include ng music. Ganda rin ng cinematography. Its really a visual feast. Yung cameo nakakatuwa! Sa mga naghahanap ng fun daw sa movie, uhm...siguro pwedeng dinagdagan pa sana pero kasi the general tone of the movie is hindi naman nga ganun. Infairness naman, consistent sa tone yung movie. Liu Yifue did really well too. I do not agree with her statements (oo, ayun at ayun lagi ang comment ng mga tao sa pelikula), but ibibigay ko naman sa kanya. Mahusay sya dito.

  4. Kakapanood ko lang sa Mulan kanina and I have to agree with Direk. Ang dry ng movie. Walang puso yung film. Ang corny ng action scenes.

    10. Boycotting a movie na pinaghirapan ng hundreds or thousands of talents including creative and production people?? Dagdag mo na rin yung mga taong trumabaho sa post prod at marketing nito. Dahil sa maling stand ng nag-iisang tao? You call that fair?? Boycott nyo yung mga solo projects nya. Call for her endorsements na alisin sya, if you must. But I don't think it's fair na nadadamay ang pinaghirapan ng napakaraming tao dahil lang sa cancel culture na ito. Liu Yifei is cancelled, sure. Hindi rin ako agree sa stand nya. Pero hindi ko rin naman gustong pagtulungan ng netizens yung project dahil lang sa kanya dahil hindi lang naman sa kanya ang project na to. Kung tutuusin, may maayos syang karera at trabaho. She'll be fine after this unless this controversy will affect her in the future. Pero yung mga writer, yung female director, cinematog, assistant director, costume designers, prod and make-up people, editors, etc. Di natin alam baka ito pala yung big break na inaantay nila. Di natin alam kung anong at stake sa karera nila kung maging successful ang movie o hindi. Given na this won't be as successful as it would have been kung walang Covid (just like Nolan's Tenet), pero respeto lang din sana sa effort ng napakaraming mga tao.

      Delete
    11. Boycott Disney and gawin nyo, hindi Boycott Mulan. This is bigger then the actor's stand. Wag kayong pretentious na nakiki-Boycott Mulan pero g na g naman sa Black Widow at iba pang Disney projects and series. Yung kumpanya mismo ang dapat umayos, yun ang i-call out nyo. Wag tayong selective sa pinaglalaban dahil lang yun ang nakikita nating narrative sa social media.

  11. Mahirap ilive ang mga animations lalo na pag mga kano ang gumawa. Marvel lang ata ang maayos nila. Unlike sa mga Japanese like SamuraiX at Titans e ayos pa din. Like Death Note at basta Japan! Pano ilalive yung Lion King e Lions at Hyenas at Animals mga karakters dun? Hahahaha!

    1. 12:48 s panahon ngayon, mas possible n ilive action ang mga animation since maraming hitech method and processes ang pedeng gamitin. Kaya nga nadisappoint ako ksi Mushu is my fave sidekick, pero pinalitan sya ng Phoenix which is blah.

      Ps. Nalive action n po ang Lion king. Hndi mo lng siguro alam

    2. 2:22 yun ba yung Lion King 2019? Animation pa din kasi tingin ko dun. Ang live para sa akin e yung mga mentions ko sa comment.

  12. 6/10 Dry nga. Di ka ma-a-attached sa characters. Walang connection. Ang bilis pa ng pacing ng story. Niliitan ko na nga expectation ko since I know hindi ang Disney Animated movie ang i-a-adopt kaso nadisappoint pa rin ako.

  13. Sadly, I have the same views. Sobrang bland lang talaga to the point na panonoorin mo nalang sya at tatapusin kasi nasimulan mo na LMAO

  14. For a change naman Direk, why not show a film you like para magkaalaman na kung ano talaga ang quality film sa panlasa mo and then will judge for ourselves? Medyo annoying na kasi yung pagpreach mo eh to the point na dinidiktahan mo na kami kung anong dapat panoorin.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Kahit ganyan si Direk Matti, this time, I agree with him. This was neutered, nawala yung fun and flamboyant character dahil China controlled nga ba? And also, nawalan ako ng gana sa lead actress sa mga statements niya about HK :-(

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Nawala yung flamboyant character, I think because generally iba naman talaga ang tone nung live action movie sa animated musical. This one is based on the legend kaya mas epic yung treatment. Sad na di mo nahiwalay yung controversy involving the actress sa panonood mo. Ang hirap nyan if you try to watch a show or movie for escape and entertainment tas naiisip mo yung actor or actress at yung controversies and opinions around them. That takes away so much from the whole viewing experience. Generally, I liked it naman. May mga elements that could've been improved pero all in all, na-enjoy ko sya. At least now I can watch the animated musical, then we also have this version na mas epic naman.

      Delete
  16. I agree with the director. I paid $30 cause we were all excited. Akala ko mala Crouching Tiger ang action and it’s not even close. The training and action scene was so choppy. Tapos I watched the extras, nakita ko mga trainers puro puti, maybe this added to the lack of depth. Oh well. Sayang lang talaga kasi Mulan was a fave rin.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Well even before naman when they said the songs, romance and other characters won't be there like Mushu, na dissappoint na ko. Kasi they're trying to portray the actual story of Mulan and not the Disney animated version kahit pa Disney remake to. Pero I liked the trailer and Yifei. I still anticipated it. So far nagustuhan ko lahat ng remakes from Beauty and the Beast, Alladin and Lion King.

    Si Matti lahat naman na internationally made ayaw nyan haha. Even the kdramas andami nya sinasabi before.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. 1:17 actually, Disney's live action of mulan is far more different from the original Mulan becuz nawala ang hardwork and persevarance aspect s story ni Mulan. Also, wla din "witch" or special power eklavu s original.

      Delete
    2. Actually jan ako nagtataka sa witch na yan. They removed the mythical creatures like Mushu and even yung cricket to make it more realistic pero biglang may witch? Lol. I've seen the other Mulan movies (yes meron ng movies before depicting Mulan's story) and so far ok naman. Mataas siguro ang expectation dito bec Disney made sya. Pero well nevertheless I would still watch this in the theaters kung natuloy sana. Bilang laking Disney ako masaya ako whenever they make remakes

      Delete
    3. Same 8:33. Nasayangan ako na di natin mapanood sa theaters ngayon. Maybe in the future, pag OK na lahat baka naman may special screening for a limited time only. Lol. It's a visual feast kasi, mukhang they really made it for people to enjoy in the big screen. Ako naman, ok lang ako na walang Mushu or cricket kasi baka masyadong ma-associate na natin sya sa animated movie pag andun sila? Saka bagay naman yung phoenix based on the general mood nung movie. Maghanap lang ako nung perseverance aspect gaya nung sabi sa taas. Pero generally, gusto ko naman sya. Even the actress, I think she did great.

  18. Love ko si mulan siya fave ko next to princess jasmine Pero sorry talaga Hinde siya ang mulan nakilala ko sa movie na ito Hinde siya. At nasan si mushu??? big part siya sa life ni mulan simula hangang dulo. He never left Mulans life journey never

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Mushu is the bastardisation of Disney to ballad of Mulan. Mushu has never been a part of Mulan's story.

      Delete
    2. Sinabi na nila sa umpisa pa lang na wala si Mushu. Hindi sila nag go with the actual Disney animated scene by scene. I've read somewhere na hindi nagustuhan ng China nung nilabas ung animated movie way back. Kasi si Mulan true story ung kwento nya sa China and parang ginawang fantasy/fairy tale-ish ni Disney.

      Delete
    3. Hanap nang hanap kay Mushu eh simula't sapul sinabi nang walang Mushu o cricket at di ito musical. Based nga ito sa legend of Mulan, hindi copycat nung animated musical. Di ko gets tong mga gantong comment eh napakaklaro naman sa marketing nila that this is a different take. Watch the animated movie if you want something more fun with talking animals and some singing. They made it clear from the very start that this is a different version.

  19. I agree with him. Hindi maganda ang editing and pacing. Hindi din bagay yung lead actress; wala siyang dating.

  20. nakakahiya naman sa Kwaresma mo

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. What’s your problem with Kuwaresma. It’s a good one. I get the Gagamboy banat but not Kuwaresma. Learn movie appreciation baka magets mo sinasabi ni direk. Baka puro Kdrama lang alam mo kaya ganyan na lang galit mo sa kanya. He has his bad ones pero he also has good one. Buybust, OTJ and Aswang Chronicles which he shot in pure chroma studio are all his.

      Delete
    2. Kwaresma was awful. It had so much promise but it fell flat. Yun ASWANG chronicles ang pinakaenjoyable sa lahat ng scary movies ni Direk. I also love Buybust and OTJ lalo na yun genius casting of Joey Marquez.

      Delete
    3. I agree. ASWANG Chronicles and OJT was his best so far.

      BUYBUST? hmm, Anne was not able to pull off to be NINA, her character role as well Brando Vera. Nilamon pa sila ng co-stars nila like Arjo, Victor and Nonong B.

      Delete
    4. I have so many problems with Kuwaresma. Let’s just say, pinagsama samang popular horror movies into one film. Cringey pabebe acting ni Sharon, yung pilit na pilit na pagpapamuka sa audience na 90’s film siya, and yung ending na wala na atang maisip yung writer/director kung paano tatapusin yung story kasi tinodo na nila sa gitna yung labo labong ideas nila. It was terrible to say the least 2:27. They just put a twist at the end para may maalala yung viewer.

      Delete
    5. disagree, maganda ang kwaresma, may twist at hindi predictable gaya ng normal movie films. buti nga at nawala na ang mga production number at pagsayaw sayaw sa beach ng mga artista noon. kaloka

  22. To be fair, among other things, Disney gave us Mulan and you gave us Gagamboy. Uhhhm... Looks like someone needs a harsh reality check.

  23. TBH naman ah, nakulangan talaga ko sa Mulan, parang feeling ko mas maganda pa yung ibang netflix orig. Yes, Disney remake yan kaya ang taas ng expectations ko, kaso feeling ko yung $200M na budget napunta lahat sa costume design and location, other than that, wala na. I'm commenting as an audience.hehe

    Replies
    1. Saan ba dapat napunta yung $200M na budget? Narerealize mo ba kung magkano ang cost ng costume, production design, make-up, extras, location, camera, at ang pagdadala ng lahat ng ito doon sa mismong locations nila??

    4. 12:41 ndi naman siguro ganun kadali mag direct? I'm sure if he has the money gagawa yan ng magandang movie. I don't know exactly how producing a movie works pero ndi siya makakagawa ng sarili niya movie without the producers. and as we all know, producers are after profit. so wag na wag ka mag rreason na gumawa siya ng quality movie. making a movie NEEDS MONEY.

      Delete
  25. Despite i dont like matti, i do agree with him on this one as Mulan live action is really sucks. Nawala kasi ang pinakalesson ng movie n minahal ko and nakakarami which is the hardwork and persistence. Kung baga, why they put or give her "special chi/qi"?

    Pinalala p n the leading actress support police brutaliy on HK which baka mangyari din sa atin as our president is China's puppy. Tinawag p nga ang ating bansa n Chinese province eh, gosh.

    PS. For me, only cinderella lng ang matinong live action (princess), others are bland. Last n to, as im not interested to watch little mermaid at baka masira lng ang childhood memory ko

  29. Lol, why is he comparing a Disney cartoon movie to a live action version? He makes no sense at all. The point of live action is to make it different from the cartoon version. It’s not a live action musical. It’s retelling of the character’s story.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Unpopular opinion, but I liked Mulan. It brought a different flavour. I wouldnt have liked it if it had the same formula sa original. The original will always be the best of course. Main actress needs a bit of depth sa acting but overall I thoroughly enjoyed it. 8.5 out of 10 for me.

    1. Enjoyed it too. The fact na hindi sya kopyang-kopya sa animated musical is a major πŸ‘ for me. Hindi sila tinamad na gumawa ng changes. Some major ones pa nga eh. At least ito, may ibang version na tayong mapapanood, different from the musical na kinalakihan ng karamihan sa tin.

  38. Agree with Mulan. Pero most of the time, I dont know why direk comes off as a pretentious and bitter man. If he wants his films to be appreciated by the mass like these big studio films then it should be a challenge for him to make films that will touch all walks of society. May rason naman siguro aside from the artists kung bakit kumikita ang both mainstream local and foreign films.

  55. Bakit kasi ang hilig ng Disney mag recycle ng mga classic cartoons nila at gawing live action, na sa totoo lang, nakakasira sa legacy ng predecessor. Produce na lang kasi ng new material (tulad ng Frozen). O di kaya kumuha rin sila ng mythology characters dito sa Pinas tulad nina Lam ang at Bernardo Carpio. Zharot.
