Watch Filipino Short Films

Do you enjoy movies?

My own obvious answer to that question is of course, yes. Why else would I take time every now and then to share about the latest movie I enjoyed or which movie I am planning to watch? ๐Ÿ™‚

Anyways, I recently found out thatย Globe Studios is premiering short films from our favorite Filipino filmmakers with the intent of inspiring image creators. I have to applaud Globe for this endeavor ๐Ÿ™‚ I’ve checked out some of the entries myself via YouTube. Two of the short films that that I enjoyed and found myself chuckling with are Stop. Steady. Sayawย byย Dan Villegas (Always Be My Maybe, Walang Forever) and Beshieย by Joyce Bernal (Kimmy Dora, Don’t Give Up on Us).ย 

Stop. Steady. Sayawย is less than 5 minutes. It stars Angelica Panganiban, Jake Cuenca and Pepe Herrera. Prepare to laugh ๐Ÿ™‚

Beshieย is less than 10 minutes and prominently stars Eugene Domingo. It is funny and drops a reminder for us about friendships and the importance of getting all the facts ๐Ÿ™‚

A Movie to Watch

When my Mom was alive, I remember her telling me what a good movie Ben-Hur is. She was referring to the 1959 film during our talk in the 1990’s. I did not really get that much why she loved that film.

Now fast forward 2016 and a new Ben-Hur movie will soon be shown in the theaters ๐Ÿ™‚ And I only learned now that the film Ben-Hur has been based from a novel an 1880 novel of Lew Wallace. I also read that the story, a fictional one, was set during the time of Jesus Christ. I find this intriguing and judging from what I have read so far about the movie, I believe it would prove to be an interesting one ๐Ÿ™‚

I look forward to watching it with my husband soon ๐Ÿ™‚

Waiting for Wonder Woman

I grew up watching the Wonder Woman TV series in the ’70s (which gives you an idea of how old I am ๐Ÿ™‚ ).

I have often wondered as a kid and then a teenager why a movie (as far as I know) had not been made about this powerful woman out to save the world. All we have had were movie after movie of male comic super heroes (Superman, Batman, Spiderman) through the years. But as Wonder Woman does not rule my own real universe, I have forgotten about my interest in seeing her in a full-blown movie on the wide cinema screen. Then Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice happened and I got a glimpse again of Wonder Woman. I wondered: could it be that she will finally have a movie of her own soon?

Indeed 2017 will mean seeing Wonder Woman in her own movie at last. And judging by the trailer, it seems like a good one ๐Ÿ™‚ ย I look forward to seeing it. Hopefully, it will indeed be worth the wait ๐Ÿ™‚

Watch the trailer below of the movie, with no less than the beautiful Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman.
