A Very Special Love & You Changed my Life

Wednesday, March 04, 2009

A month ago (I think) - I was surprise to receive a YM message from an old friend, Dondon. He was asking how I was and we got to chat. He was part of the group I was with when we did a Metro Manila Filmfest marathon one Christmas - can you imagine was saw 5 different Tagalog movies in a span of 12 hours!

I associate Tagalog movie discussions with Dondon, why? Well, because he's the only guy I know who is as observant as I am when watching tagalog movies! You see we were having a discussion on something (it escapes me now) then we were trying our best to identify this certain movie, we threw in lines, scenes, actors in the movie but our efforts were futile. So how did we finally settle the discussion - it was when we identified a certain dance number on top of a building that we were able to piece it together. It was a dance number of Benedict Aquino and Gretchen Barretto on the top floor of a building located somewhere in Manila! The dancing scene was so badly choreographed but it was so effective and done perfectly by these two actors! I think it was at that moment that I realized that he was as baduy as me! Hahaha..

So, anyway - he was asking me what Tagalog movie I saw last, I said one of the MMFF movies, he then asked if I saw 'A Very Special Love' the movie of Sarah Geronimo and John Lloyd Cruz - I said no. Now why was that a Tagalog movie nut like me failed to see it? Simple - I had to no one to see it with!! Hahaha.. Dondon then said that I have to make sure to watch it, because he knows I will enjoy the movie's being baduy.

Last Saturday - Imma lent me her take note - ORIGINAL dvd copy of the movie - I immediately put it on the player when I got home. So the verdict? I freaking LOVED every minute of the movie! Yes, the movie was soooooooo baduy and corney lines were thrown one after another but man, was I ENTERTAINED! I was so kilig that I was shrieking and laughing like crazy! It was such a good 'feel good movie'!! It didn't end there - since I enjoyed it tremendously - I saw it again after midnight, when I got home from the block DLSU dinner. I think I slept with a silly grin on my face!! Hahahaha...

Last Monday - the girls and I (the girls are my Panget's friends' wives) went to Trinoma to watch the much awaited sequel 'You Changed my Life'. Let me tell you, sitting beside Imma - the best thing because - we were so in sync with the kiligness, the laughter and the kabaduyan! Hahaha... The movie's baduy level is the same, still - I was very much entertained. Can you believe that there were tears, because I was laughing so hard!! Gosh - I've never been this entertained while watching a Tagalog movie!!

To Star Cinema - you've made a terrific love team with Sarah and John Lloyd!
To the Scripwriter - PANALO ang mga linyang isinulat mo!! Galeng, grabe!!
To Cathy Garcia-Molina - sana di ka magsawas sa kaka-direct ng mga ganitong klaseng pelikula! To Sarah and John Lloyd - mga Bebe ko - saludo ako sa inyong dalawa!! :)

  5. This is one of my top favorite of Sarah Geronimo’s movie. I just can’t wait for her latest project with Piolo entitled The Breakup Playlist. Making it more exciting, is the official soundtrack. All the best for OPM songs and also for Philippine movie industry  Paano Ba Ang Magmahal Lyrics and Chords
