MMFF 2011: 5 things about "Segunda Mano"

Sunday, January 01, 2012

Every year, we have absolutely no choice but to watch a couple of Metro Manila Film Festival (MMFF) movies just because they are not showing anything else. This year's list of entries was strangely similar to last year's entries yet people still went to the theatres to support these 'remakes' or 're-edits' (as what I like to call them). Here's what I thought about some of the movies I've seen so far.

MMFF movie #1: Segunda Mano
Starring: Kris Aquino / Dingdong Dantes / Angelica Panganiban

1. Bangs Garcia was the big revelation in this movie. I never really liked this girl but she did a great job portraying a loud, over the top sidekick to compensate for Kris Aquino lack of other facial expressions.

2. Speaking of Kris Aquino, I actually thought she did a better job (not her best) in this movie than in her previous ones. True, the constipated-slash-scary look and that God-awful shriek is something we have to live with for the rest of our lives. But don't you think she did well in playing the role of a pathetic girlfriend / housewife - a complete departure from her big personality.\

3. Graphics on this movie wasn't stellar. And the make-up of Angelica's ghost was just amateurish. 

4. Jhong Hilario was the biggest disappointment in this movie. Why did they give him the most ridiculous lines?

5. The movie was NOT scary at all. Still, it ranked 4 in terms of total earnings for the MMFF this year. Will you be watching Kris' next movie? I bet you will. We always do.
