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? 🙂

Anyways, I recently found out that 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 🙂 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. Sayaw by Dan Villegas (Always Be My Maybe, Walang Forever) and Beshie by Joyce Bernal (Kimmy Dora, Don’t Give Up on Us). 

Stop. Steady. Sayaw is less than 5 minutes. It stars Angelica Panganiban, Jake Cuenca and Pepe Herrera. Prepare to laugh 🙂

Beshie 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 🙂

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 🙂 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 🙂

I look forward to watching it with my husband soon 🙂
