MMFF 2015 Movie Review: Nilalang (Entity) starring Cesar Montano and Maria Ozawa

NILALANG is the first Metro Manila Film Festival entry I’ve seen this year during its premiere night at the SM Megamall Cinema 10. It was a quick invitation but I do admit now that the main motivation to watch the movie is to see the famous Maria Ozawa in the flesh. I mean, why not? It’s about time to discover if the Japanese AV superstar can act without the need of stripping off her clothes.

The movie starts with an impressive flashback and opening credits. From there, the audience automatically knows that the people behind this project are good in terms of visuals as the quality is top-notch. It will make you feel proud that a Filipino film can compete with its Asian neighbors in making such movies.

Movie Review: Somebody to Love

Last Thursday, I did a bit of Pinoy movie marathon. I haven’t blogged about my Cinemalaya 2014 experience and even a review of other movies I’ve seen this year. I may have imposed a travel ban supposedly to save up, but I end up spending money on watching movies and I don’t regret it.

Somebody to Love is a star-studded romantic-comedy film under Regal Films. The main reason why I went to the cinema is the director. I’m a big fan of Jose Javier Reyes’ chick flicks and I consider ‘One Night Only’ as an underrated film.

The movie takes place in a span of one week. It’s a story of different people looking for love.

Iza Calzado as Marga Castro is my favorite in the movie. Her character reminds me of two celebrities who wouldn’t keep still unless they make it in the headlines 😉  Iza was able to portray her role with such grace yet you can see her desperation for fame and exposure too. It’s fun to watch her in this type of role. A stand-alone Marga Castro movie soon, please?
