  1. Rachel did not take constructive criticism and in the end it was the fan votes that brought her to the semifinal round. And yet, she remained chill instead of being stoked so she crashed and burned. So anong nangyari sa “this is my journey?” Ang mga fans pa rin ang nakatulong sa journey mo. Ingrata kasi at masyadong bilib sa sarili. Aspirants should look at the crown as if their life depended on it. #icantmoveon #magbabagongtaonna

  2. Hindi na ako nanonood ng Pinoy commercial films but if there’s quality pinoy films as per feedback, I’ll find time to view it in Internet ☺
    I’m more of TV comedy like celebrity bluff ba yon by Ms Domingo and reality shows in Utubeto be entertained 😄
    Sometimes lang yung masturbation films nina claire/Laila and Barbie , bareback films nina Fabian and Thomas and horror films of Zombie Tae hihihi😄cherette lang

    • LUMABAS NA NAMAN KA-ENGOTAN NI BONGOK700, E YONG PENKULA NG NANAY MO NA KUNG SAAN KINAKAWKAW NG MAYAK YONG PUKI NG INA MO, NAPANOOD MO NA BA? YONG PAGFINGER SA PWET MO NG SARILI MONG AMA HABANG SUBO SUBO MO UTEN NG LELONG MO, PALABAS NA BA?

  3. Filipino movies are cheap, shallow and with recycled plot and storylines.
    The movies of that rude gay I heard are raking millions of money which is a microcosm of how low the Philippines has gone not to mention that they have voted for psychotic, bastos and classless president.

  4. i hope rachel does travel documentaries or something like that. her vibe will be great for those types of shows..

  5. Honestly Truly. Ang mga pinoy films? Super cheap, yung mga tv drama din jusko ang effects pang 90’s Hollywood, bad camerawork, cringy acting (there are only a HANDFUL of actors/actresses who can act), recycled storylines, we also have this seemingly neverending teleseryes like the current Probinsyano which btw WAS one of the recent teleyerse that had a better storyline than most pinoy teleseryes but was stretched and milked out for everything it was worth. Well everything I listed here is to be expected kung ang mga heads at ang mga directors ng ABS, GMA etc ehh mga lolo’t lola na kaya ang mga taste ay vintage. Kaloka.

  6. Si Fabian Reyes walang tiwala sa Filipino movies. Makalait nanaman siya. Anong tawag sa mga Filipino films na nananalo sa film fest? Di ba quality ang mga films na yun? Gamitin mo nga utak mo hindi yung putak ka ng putak jan!

    Iyan lumabas na ang totoo gusto mo lang manood ng mga variety show kasi yun lang kaya icomprehend ng utak mo! LOL! Siguro nangangarap ka sumali sa Miss Q&A para makoronahan ka naman kahit papano or sana masugod ka sa sugod bahay para bigyan ka nila ng pera pambayad sa mga utang mo sa credit card! hahahahahahaha!

    Nakakaawa ka naman. Kung di talaga successful ang film at OPM bakit meron pang pinapalabas at pinatutugtog? Una sa lahat magkaiba naman kasi ang style at quality sa Hollywood at Pilipino kaya hindi mo sila maikokompara. Different strokes for different folks ika nga.

    Ewan ko ba sayo pa-class ka masyado di naman bagay sayo. Pweh! Meron ka pang “I hate Pinoy films”…. Ang tanong ko sayo bakit love ka ba nila? I’m sure kahit extra hindi ka makukuha. Tiga walis ka lang sa set! hahahaha! Hiyang hiya naman ako sa mga nagtrabaho at nagpakahirap sa mga Pinoy movies. Ikaw kaya gumawa ng film I’m sure walang manonood baka ang tema ng movie mo puro lait sa buhay. hahahaha!

    • Nagmagaling na Naman si BArbie na graduate with honors daw.
      Sipsip ba BArbie . Dagdagan mo pa ng pitsa para na-engganyo si Vic Soto na Gumawa ng pelikula….
      Different quality ang Hollywood at Pinoy Fulms ? E di Inamin mo rin pala ang dami mo pang sinasabi . Name-mersonal pa ng tira. We are talking about Pinoy films. Not me what makes u think of that abt me ? Projection ba of your sad miserable life ? 🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗

      • Ikaw ang nauna mamersonal tandaan mo yan at isaksak mo sa baga mo! LOL! Mas nagmamagaling ka sabihin mo ba naman hate mo ang pinoy movies? The nerve! Hindi ako sipsip nagsasabi lang ako ng totoo. At least si Vic Sotto kahit na laitin mo mga pelikula nya, kumikita pa din ng milyon, tumutulong sa mga tao at mabait saka wala kang narinig sa kanya na lait at hindi rin siya nagmataas! Eh ikaw feeling at asal alta may utang naman sa credit card! Hahaha! Magkaiba ang quality kaya hindi mo maikukumpara para ngang apples and oranges di mo ba magets yun? Tunaw ba utak mo? Haha! If I am sad and miserable, ginaya na din kita na nilait lait lahat ng nakita ko. Baka reflection ng mga lait mo yung totoo mong buhay. Ikaw ang kalait lait jan! Hahahaha! Kaya ka nanglalait kasi hindi ka masaya sa buhay mo at obvious na may desire kang magpaka alta at umangat sa buhay kaso frustrated ka kaya dinadaan mo na lang sa lait! hahahah! Lait pa more! 😛

      • Barbie , my attack is on the subject not on the people commenting … unless they attack me personally… like u have .
        Ok lang namang gumawa ng mga Vic Soto movie di ba? May nanonood naman
        Ok Lang naman na 1 out of 10 songs ay oPm ( which is usually a revival of an American song) ang pinapatugtog di ba? Buti nga May isa .
        Ok lang naman na May mAgnanakaw ng Kaban ng bayan di ba ? Kahit papaano May daang ginagawa di ba?
        Congrats , BArbie . You will be pedddling pitsa for life . Do not blame for this . You were the one who proudly said you were selling pitsa for a living .

  7. Uy manonood si Angelo Reyes ng The Revengers. Andun kasi si Bianca Guidotti! hahahah! Who knows icheer niya pa or sumigaw sa cinema pag nakita nya si Bianca sa big screen! hahahaha! Charot lang!

    -So happy for the queens dominating showbiz. I hope isa sa kanila maging primetime star.

  8. Hi mga veks… Gonna lurk around here for a little bit as this season has been really non-stop high octane week after week after week. Naburned out ang veks..hihihi Happy Holidays to all Mommy Norman’s active and interesting blog commenters…hihihi

  9. Basta ako, fan padin ako ng Pinoy movies – lalo na the romcoms (star cinema romcoms) and comedy (Vice Ganda films).

    Alam ko namang di nagagastusan gaano ang mga ito pero malakas sila kumita. Pero paki ko sa kita nila? Good for them, kumita yung pinagpuyatan nila.

    Personally, kuhang kuha lang din nila ang mababaw na kiliti ko (kilitiin talaga din naman ako). Kaya madalas, I’m a happy baby pag lumalabas ng sinehan.

    Ang swerte ko sa bagay na ito. Naeenjoy ko both the “low-class” pinoy films and the Hollywood films.

    • Ang layo na ng narating ng comments ng iba, oo…hahahaha!

      Ang hirap mag-risk dito sa Pinas, sa totoo lang. Gagawa ka ng movie na malaki ang budget…pero kikita ka lang ng Php 500+ million (based lang on the highest grossing Fil film)…di pa sure if aabutin yan…

      Unless siguro, merong lumabas jan na sa sobrang passionate nya sa film industry e gagawa sya ng mga pelikulang “dekalidad” without expecting much ROI.

      I guess that’s why we have Pinoy Movies and Hollywood movies kasi they cater talaga to different Fil markets (again, swerte lang kaming nag eenjoy sa both). May Indie movies naman tayong nakikilala worldwide, wag na tayong umambisyon ng levelling sa hollywood.

      PS. – baka sabihin kaya di umuunlad ang mga Pinoy dahil sa kagaya kong mababa ang pangarap. Sobrang taas po ng mga pangarap ko! Hahaha! Pero nagpapakatotoo lang.

      • That’s a good point . Hollywood has a much wider audience .
        I just hope that Pinoys will someday be able to make low budget but good quality films like those that come from Iran SK and South American countries.

  10. The Filipinos fondness for low quality movies like that of Vice Ganda or Vic Sotto is very reflective of how Filipinos vote during elections. Kaya huwag ng magtaka.

  11. minsan nakakawalang gana talaga ang manood ng pinoy movies. mostly na movies ngayon is comedy and horror. tho may mga magaganda naman kaya lang nakakasawa. how i wish magkaroon tayo ngyon ng action films na mala hollywood ang dating. marami tayong mapipili now sa mga male artist and female para gumanap.pero baket walang nagkakainteres na gumawa. money prob ba or knowledge sa mala Hollywood films. marameng movies na pwede nilang references na pwedeng gawing guide no need ng help sa mga hollywood directors. i like indie din pero mas kabuhay buhay ng dugo ang mala hollywood action films papatok talaga yan satin sa panahon ngayon. mag umpisa sila sa mala mission impossible gang sa ma reach ang avengers level.

    • Paging SMA! Look what happen to this girl! You should allow a girl to rejoin the pageant regardless if she won a title already!

      • Claire , did nt she lose the crown the yr before? So technically she had not won a crown before this yr’s pageant .

      • Which is nangyari Rin Kay Venus. Then later na-restore Yung title.

        This one nanalo na then na dethrone then she competed again under new franchise holder for the same title.

        So Sana si SMA hayaan mag compete ulit Ang mga winners this time for a different title.

      • As per Miss USA rules, no delegate may compete twice in the national pageant. Miss Florida USA is however a state pageant only. Therefore technically, Davila isn’t impeded by the prohibition rule of Miss USA yet. Rather, she is subject to the current state franchisee’s rules and regulations. If there is no existing prohibition rule in Florida, then she is still eligible.

      • Bastos talaga itong si BArbie . That name-calling is not acceptable in modern society .
        If u were here in America , bugbog sarado ka!

  12. Good job for these beauty queens who were able to penetrate show business so smoothly. With that kind of trend, many of the beautiful girls in the country would now try beauty pageants first as a stepping stone to enter showbiz.

    Unfortunately for me, just like many movie enthusiasts, I seldom watch Pinoy movies. Aside from the fact that they are typical romcom low-budgeted films, the craft is not really at par with the foreign films which are beautifully conceptualized from the script up to the finish product (kahit na romcomma [romance, comedy, and drama] pa ‘yan) . I mean these Filipino films have good box office turn-outs as they press release, and yet you hardly connect to the craftness of the films. Say for example most of the Star Cinema films. They are purely hyped with the press release that they are doing well in the box office, so other film goers would tickle their curiosity and watch the film, but once they see the movie… baaaaam, ang pangeeet! I was once a victim of this overhyping. So please stop fooling Filipinos. Invest into highly-valuable films. Napag-iiwanan na tayo ng South Korea. Tayo hanggang pangongopya na lang tayo ng idea. Where are the producers of Jose Rizal, Muro Ami, Rosario, Urduja?

    • Anna W, I found Jose Rizal and Muro Ami ( have not seen the other 2 ) very boring . I can’t blame Pinoys for ignoring them .
      As you said , it does not have to be big – budgeted and explosive . The Salesman,from Iran, for example , Tackles a very simple plot but it keeps the audience interest going without the hysterics typical of Pinoy films . And box-office wise , it did very well topping the yr it was released in Iran.

      • Wild Tales from Argentina was amazing from beginning to end .
        The last Pinoy films I tried to watch were Die Beautiful and Bwakaw. A few months back .
        Conclusion : Pinoy films have not changed … still with the slow dragging plot and the unnecessary dialogues typical of Hollywood films from the 50’s to the 70’s .. that’s more than 40 y ago.

      • @Fabie, I won’t wonder if you find Jose Rizal and Muro Ami boring. As movie experts have once put it, those who are historically lost and socially irrelevant will find the movie boring. The said movies are critically-acclaimed here and abroad because they are cinematographically excellent plus their stories were written well. If your criticism runs counter the movie experts, then you are in the wrong way.

        You liked The Salesman which is a very simple household story, though beautifully executed. That means you are leaning towards non-complicated movie stories.

        NEVERTHELESS —

        I respect your opinion. That’s all!

    • May Tama ka!

      Ang Pinoy films walang kamatayang “love story” o “horror”. Ang mga script writer walang perspective sa science or history!

      Kung mapapansin mo din sa Asia, ang mga SoKor films palaging may nakasingit na “saving an 8 year old girl sa story”, sa mga Japs naman “ghost of the past”, sa mga Chekwa naman mga “warrior” madalas!

      Bihira ako manood ng Pinoy films, the last that I enjoyed is Kimi Dora! For now mas nae-enjoy ko mga Spanish and Argentinian films, magaganda and realistic and perspective. In fact Yung iba kinopya ng Bollywood!

    • Subukan Mo panoorin mga film’s na’to. Lalo Kang manliliit sa kakayahan ng mga Pinoy,

      Spanish films

      The skin I live in
      13 chimes
      Shrew’s nest
      The body
      To steal from a thief
      Secret in their eyes (kinopya ng Hollywood pero mas maganda pa Rin original)
      The hidden face

      SoKor films

      Freeze me
      Bestseller
      No mercy
      The yellow sea
      The client
      The man from nowhere

      French films,

      Traceless
      Strayed

      Hodejegerne (Poland)

      • Thanks for that, Claire.

        When I have the luxury of time, I’ll watch them all. ☺

  13. Pia is fierce while Kylie is sweet and timid. Two queens with two different characters that made them both clinch an international crown.

    Madami na din naman cross over beauties – Pageant to Showbiz and vice versa. Kaya go lang mga queens!

  14. Ang sayaaaa! I’ll watch both MMFF movies.

    Speaking of, am I the only person here who hates Pinoys hating on Pinoy comedy films? Like when they say, “May movie na naman si Vice Ganda…wala na namang kwenta” – am I the only one na naiirita?

    Masyadong mga critical minsan mga tao. Ma-anong i-enjoy ang movies, tutal yun naman ang silbi nya? At if feeling mo, pangit sya pero di mo naman napanood, wag ka na komoment.

    Wala lang. Na-share ko lang. Hahaha!

    • I hate Pinoy films . They are raking millions without trying to spend money to improve quality . They are boring and over sentimental and lacking in substance and originality .
      Of course there are some exceptions . And sigurado, some folks are entertained… like my mother who only watched Pinoy shows and movies.

      I prefer to watch live variety shows like Eat Bulaga Wowowee and the Vice Ganda counterpart.
      I hate Pinoy musical variety shows . They are so noisy with all these ugly interpretations Of American pop songs and the ever so tiring Pinoy music in the 60’s-90’s , paulit -ulit na Lang

      Our movie and music industry are not moving at all.
      At least , tv has been Uber-successful
