'Sisterakas' and 'One More Try:' A Back-to-Back Movie Marathon!




 My 2012 Metro Manila Film Festival experience wouldn't be completed if I wasn't able to watch two of the most awarded and blockbuster movies of the film fest, the "Sisterakas" and the "One More Try." On the last day of the festival (January 8, 2013), we found time to watch these two exciting movies from Star Cinema  

 It seems that we were having a movie marathon watching these two films in a back-to-back mode, one after the other. We decided to watch first "Sisterakas" since we were quite late in the movie house then our finale went to "One More Try."

A balance night or should I say a mixed emotion took place on the said night since from full comedy offered by Kris Aquino, Ai Ai Delas,  and Vice Ganda, we shifted crying because of the heavy emotions showcased by the characters of Dingdong Dantes, Angelica Panganiban, Zanjoe Marudo, and Angel Locsin in the film festival's 1st Best Picture winner, "One More Try."     

It seemed that another incident took place watching two movies in one night. Remember last December 2012, the other two MMFF movies namely "Sosy Problems" and "Shake Rattle and Roll 14: The Invasion" had their respective premiere nights at the same time?! So, I need to shift from one cinema to another to catch them both!



"Sisterakas" and "One More Try" truly fulfilled our night. They were truly satisfying! My friends bet "Sisterakas" since they made us laughed in a natural way! But for me, of course "One More Try" is my No. 1. Aside from being an Angel Locsin movie, I can relate to the story of "One More Try." I even love the passionate love / bed  scenes of the lead characters! :) 

If time permits, I will share with you my reviews in separate posts for these two great movies of 2012!

It's great to note that my 2012 movie events ended with MMFF (via "Sosy Problems" and "Shake RAttle and Roll 14") and my 2013 movie events begun also with MMFF (via "Sisterakas" and "One More Try"). Yes, "Sosy" and "SSR" were my last movies for 2012 while "Sisterakas" and "OMT" were my first movies for 2013! Cool!

I hope everybody enjoys the concluded MMFF! 'Till next time! (RCB)

Enchong Dee Talks About His Character in 'The Strangers!'


Enchong Dee is the lead star of the 2012 Metro Manila Film Festival horror movie entry, "The Strangers." The movie is one of the two horror flicks in the festival along with "Shake Rattle and Roll 14: The Invasion."  

Though I already met before Enchong in "ASAP Rocks" last year, this was the very first time that I talked with him in person and have my solo picture taking with him.

Check out the video clip featuring my short interview with Enchong during the grand presscon of their movie wherein he gave a glimpse about his character:



In the movie, Enchong is playing the character of Dolfo wherein he sported a strange look! His character is really mysterious which will surprise the viewers!  

"The Strangers" is Quantum Films, MJM Films, and Star Cinema's official entry to the 2012 MMFF. It is now showing in the different theaters nationwide! (RCB)  

Meeting the 'Sosy' Girl Solenn Heussaff!


Solenn Heussaff is one of the four lead stars of the 2012 Metro Manila Film Festival entry "Sosy Problems."  And I'm so glad to meet her in person during the red carpet premiere of their movie.

In "Sosy Problems," Solenn is playing the character Margaux, the daughter of the former beauty queen played by Ms. Cherrie Gil. She is the best friend of Heart Evangelista who is playing the character of Claudia.     

Solenn showed her natural humor in the movie. She made people laugh in her very natural way, in her sexy way! I love the scene where she showcased her gymnastic ability!  

Check out my video clip with Solenn wherein she invites you to watch the movie:



Solenn is truly 'sosy' in real life! She is beautiful and sexy in person. And yeah, she is so kind, approachable, and easy to deal with! She is much taller than me! :)

"Sosy Problems" is now hitting the theaters nationwide. This is GMA Films entry to the 2012 MMFF.  The movie gives a new flavor to comedy films. It shades new color to this year's MMFF entries! 

 Nice meeting you Solenn! (RCB)

'Sosy Problems' is Not an Ordinary Comedy or Glamour Film!

My Invitation to the Presscon and to the Red Carpet!

The Sosy Girls Inside the Movie House

A Perfect Christmas Treat from GMA Films!
"Sosy Problems" is GMA Films' official entry to the 2012 Metro Manila Film Festival. It was previously titled as "Conyo Problems" but later on, it was changed to "Sosy Problems." The movie tells the story of the four rich and famous elite ladies play by Rhian Ramos, Heart Evangelista, Bianca King, and Solenn Heussaff.

The movie is light comedy in nature making the season jollier spreading more fun to the whole family.

In the movie, Rhian plays Lizzie, the spoiled-rich daughter of a hotelier who is a self-appointed leader of the Sosy group; Bianca portrays Danielle, the daughter of an ex-politician who is on the brink of being impeached from office; Solenn is Margaux, the daughter of the former beauty queen (Cherrie Gil) and the bestfriend and half sister of Claudia (Heart's character) who is also the daughter of a beauty queen (Agot Isidro). Margaux and Claudia were competing one another from beauty to the only man they see who is Benjo (Aljur Abrenica), an all-around employee at the Polo Club.        

Their main problem, however, is that their favorite hangout place, The Polo Club, which reminds them of all the memories of their “firsts” in life – including their first kisses and love affairs – is in danger of being torn down and replaced with a mall that is not so much for the rich and famous: in other words, not a “sosy” mall.

The “sosy” ladies will do everything they can in order to stop the Polo Club owners from pursuing their plans, and they will risk everything -- even their poise and glamour – to achieve their goal.    
Check out the full trailer of the movie:



Just like many people think, before watching this movie, I thought that this film is an ordinary comedy flick wrapped in a socialite touch. But it's definitely not!

The movie leaves every viewer a moral lesson in life. Each story of the four 'sosy' ladies tells different values.      

The story of  Margaux and Claudia emphasized the true meaning of friendship. Though their mothers were at war because of their daddy, they still manage to be best of friends! But when Banjo came, competition between the two ladies rose.

I love the idea taught by the movie saying, "Ang boyfriend madaling mapalitan at makakahanap ka agad. Pero ang bestfriend, hindi...!"  That's why in the end, Margaux and Claudia didn't sacrifice their friendship for only one man. And they both won in choosing friendship over man when they found out in the end that Banjo is already married!

Stage Actor Mickey Bustos Plays an Interesting Character as Denmark
The story of Danielle emphasized acceptance. We really don't need to pretend to be accepted by people. In the movie, Danielle is still pretending to be rich even though her stature is declining just to be part of the 'sosy' girls. But in the end, she is still accepted by her friends no matter what happened in her family!      

Danielle's story also tells that love doesn't depends in status in life - no rich and no poor in true love! She still found true love in the person of Santi (Mikael Daez) who accepted her even in the times that she is facing her greatest challenge in life!    

And of course, Lizzie's story focused on valuing the good things we have. At first, Lizzie seems not contended even though she already have everything in life. But she learned to value it when she was sent to a province letting her experience living in a simple life!
Overall, the movie teaches us that even though we already have all the richness in the world, we still have to face different challenges and solve problems. Money, fame, and fortune were not exception, all of us have our own problems to solve!          
The movie also emphasized the power of Social Media like the Twitter and its influence to the modern society!

And if you think that the movie is targeting only the elite people, well think again! The movie is pro-masses. Every people in the society - yayas, maids, guards, employees, utility personnel, etc. can all  enjoy the movie!        
   
Yes, I truly enjoyed this movie! It relieved all my stress! It's really not an ordinary comedy movie everyone is thinking of. I highly recommend it. Watch it and see to yourself my points. In the end, you will find that this movie is really different!  

Two thumbs up to GMA Films for bringing us "Sosy Problems" as one of the flavors of MMFF 2012! Cool! (RCB)

'Shake Rattle and Roll 14' and 'Sosy Problems:' A Back-To-Back Red Carpet Premiere Night!



I was able to watch and attend two of the 2012 Metro Manila Film Festival entries at the same time! Yup, the two movie entries had their red carpet premiere night at the same time last Saturday, December 21, 2012. The two movies were the Regal Films' horror entry "Shake Rattle and Roll 14: The Invasion"and the GMA Films' comedy flick "Sosy Problem."   

The red carpet both took place in SM Megamall at the same time (started at 7pm) but in two different Cinemas - "SSR 14" in Cinema 10 while "Sosy Problems" in Cinema 5

I attended first the red carpet of "SSR" and got my interviews with the lead stars. Afterwards, I went to "Sosy Problems" to watch the start of the movie proper. I took my interviews and picture-taking of the stars at the end of "Sosy Problems." Since "Sosy Problems" ended first, I still got the chance to watch the remaining episodes of "SRR" - the end of Episode 2 (The Lost Command) and whole of Episode 3 (Unwanted).

Yes, "talagang lagare" that night but it was truly a lot of fun! So fulfilling...!

On my next succeeding posts, watch out for my separate reviews for these two 2012 MMFF movies as well as my individual interviews and photos with the lead stars!

The two movies are now starting to hit the theaters nationwide! (RCB)
