AMA, INA, ANAK (Jose Javier Reyes, 1996)

“There are more ways of gaining fulfillment as a woman maliban sa pagiging isang mabuting ina at asawa. Eh kung yan ang gusto ng Mother Nature eh di sana anim ang dede natin sa katawan.” 130 more words


SOLTERA (Jerry Lopez Sineneng, 1999)

It was only apt that in this movie about a jaded spinster, the most touching moment involved her spending her anniversary not with her younger boyfriend, but with her gay bff (along the fresh waters of Manila Bay). 108 more words


SEPARADA (Chito Roño, 1994)

It was refreshing to see an honest and fair treatment of marital infidelity (as one character revealed, it could go both ways).

Star Cinema would usually punish its female characters for being tough and powerful, but here it rewarded the lead with a strong support group of other women. 77 more words


LOVING IN TANDEM (Giselle Andres, 2017)


My notes on Loving in Tandem:

1. In one supposedly romantic scene, Luke (Edward Barber) described Shine (Maymay Entrata) as “not the kind of beauty that you see in movies and TV” and that “she was beautiful because she had a big heart that never stopped loving”. 582 more words
