Between classes, I have avoided watching a Pinoy film these days. Forget Rory Quintos' Love Me Again, Piolo doesn't look fun in there! And what good is a romantic film without a fun-and-exciting hero? Forget Rufa Mae Quinto's funny antics, I am still not over the lobotomy that i suffered from watching the moronic lineup from the last MMFF. Thank God, there's Hollywood and the Oscars.
Sure, as it has been customary, we have continually berated on the Hollywood movie machine as nothing but a shallow and money-generating fuckups, but at a particular season like now, suddenly, great films crowd the cinematic gallery. To balance the horrific lack of intelligence in the Philippine MMFF movie season, Oscar-touted flicks gather round my Christmas tree!
And in my moments of movie-watching bliss, I suddenly realized that Mickey Rourke ("The Wrestler") just might steal the thunder from Sean Penn who was spectacular in Milk!
