Masturdating sa Kasuluk-sulukan, Kadulu-duluhan, at Kadilim-dilimang Bahagi ng Sinehan
As usual, nag-masturdate na naman ako—nanuod ng movie mag-isa. Ha ha. Paano? Eh, may gusto akong yayain kaso nahiya ako.
Ah, ewan. ‘Yun nga, pinanuod ko na kanina ‘yung movie nina Laida at Miggy. Ayoko pa sanang panuorin, eh, kasi mainit pa siya ngayon at nahihiya akong pumila na mag-isa. Walang kasama. Walang katuwang. Walang karamay. :( Pero hindi na ako nakatiis. Ang ginawa ko, last minute ako bumili ng ticket para deretso pasok na ako. Dun ako pumwesto sa KKK (Kasuluk-sulukan, Kadulu-duluhan, at Kadilim-dilimang) bahagi ng sinehan.
Wala akong ibibigay na spoiler. Hindi ko rin ‘to pagmumukhaing movie review. Pero sasabihin ko kung bakit sobra pa sa sulit ang gagastusin mo mapanuod lang ang It Takes a Man and a Woman.
- Una siyempre si mahal, Sarah Geronimo. Tama nga ang sinasabi ng lahat ng nakapanuod, napakataas ng pag-level up ng acting niya dito. Hindi si Sarah Geronimo o ang dating Laida (Laida Version 1.0) ang mapapanuod mo, kundi ang remarkable Laida Magtalas Version 2.0. ‘Yung mata niya, as in ‘yung mata talaga! Ugh! Basta! Ayokong sabihin. Basta! Ugh!
- Si John Lloyd Cruz. Hindi naman lingid sa kaalaman ng lahat ang taglay niyang husay sa pag-arte, eh, kaya bakit ko pa babanggitin? Wala lang. May masabi lang. Pero hanep talaga! Kapag siya na ang umiiyak, pakiramdam mo, ikaw ‘yung umiiyak. Makatotohanan. Hindi umaarte.
- Zoila and Friends. Sina Matet na itinago ang noo; si Gio Alvarez na galit sa bonet; at si Joross Gamboa! Si Joross! Uulitin ko, si Joross! Isa pa, si Joroooossssss!!! Papatayin ka ni Joross sa kakatawa.
- Lahat ng eksena. Wala kang itatapong eksena. May mga eksenang, hindi naman nagpapatawa, pero matatawa ka. Sa simpleng reaksyon, sa konting kembot, at sa bawat linyang binitawan, tatatak talaga sa utak mo. Tatawa ka, iiyak ka, tatawa uli, tas iiyak uli.
Ayoko nang pahabain. Basta masaya ako napanuod ko na ang last installment ng pelikula ni mahal. Sana sa susunod kami naman ang partner. Nakakabwisit lang si John Lloyd kasi andami niyang score kay mahal. :( Pero okay lang, masaya naman si mahal, kaya masaya na rin ako. :)
Gusto kong ulitin, samahan mo’ko? Libre mo? :)
It Takes A Man And A Woman
“This is Laida Magtalas Version 2.0, Braver… Bolder… Fiercer!..”
Who will forget the fairy-tale-like love story of Miggy Montenegro and Laida Magtalas, or never heard the “Bebe Ko” endearment, the “Power Hug”, or even the “Sun Dance” – No One, and that’s for sure.
Four years after Miggy Montenegro played by John Lloyd Cruz and Laida Magtalas played by Sarah Geronimo brought us a bit of tears, lots of laughter and tons of kilig moments (plus the “I can’t be jealous… ngayon lang! ”) through their blockbuster movie “A Very Special Love” and a sequel “You Changed My Life” both directed by Cathy Garcia-Molina are here once again offering us another blockbuster and a sure worth watching movie: “It Takes A Man And A Woman”, the third and final installment.
I promised myself I wouldn’t be a spoiler, but forgive me, I can’t help myself!
I almost cry, felt “kilig”, embarrassed, then laughed, then laughed, then laughed, and finally laughed plus kilig. Countless laughter I even lost count and some kilig times.
Well, its too obvious based from the bazillion times that the movie trailer had been played on television that the main characters, Miggy and Laida go separate ways after a new character Belle (played by Isabelle Daza) came in between.
What happened next?
Miggy, now with bad-boy-bachelor look became the old Miggy, a disappointment to his family’s business reputation, while Laida on the other hand, now with better fashion sense and successful career in New York – plus the accent, needs to work together for a special assignment that stands as test whether they’ve finally moved on or do they still stuck on their feelings for each other.
Moving On: I knew it from the first moment I walked in the cinama that I will hate Sarah’s wig, that I wish Sarah can cry better, that JLC possess the Hot-Bachelor physique and wish for fewer flashback and storytelling, but among all these, I knew that I will definitely love this movie – I’m a Miggy-Laida fan.

Gist: The film revolves around the story of a nice and romantic guy who falls in love with a modern-day woman who is afraid of commitments. As opposites attract and their worlds collide, a funny, sweet and sexy love story develops.
The Positive: Cathy Garcia-Molina does it again. She brings out John Lloyd Cruz’ charm, paired it with the sexiness of Angel Locsin, gave them interesting lines and memorable scenes, and voila! Another highly entertaining and money-making rom-com movie.
The Negative: In spite of the cheesy and cliché-filled ending, “UnOfficially Yours” is still a very commendable movie in general.
bakit hindi gawing libro ang mga pelikula na patok sa takilya? halimbawa yung ONE MORE CHANCE? kung ako dun sa writer o dun sa producer gagawin ko ding libro yun para maging isang memorabilya, diba sa ibang bansa ganun? pelikula muna tapos kapag maraming nagandahan .. yung libro naman ang isusunod nila, o kaya libro muna tapos yung Libro (ligo na u lapit na me) para sa ganun kahit paano may ma-e enganyo na mag sulat o mas maraming gumawa ng libro dito sa Pilipinas.
Unofficially Yours (2012)
Directed by Cathy Garcia Molina
It seems to me that director Cathy Garcia Molina may have mastered the genre and the style of story that she usually does that is why her latest film featuring Angel Locsin and John Lloyd Cruz was effective. It was not a bubblegum type of romance, there was something really adult about it but the charm is still there. It was corny when it needs to be corny. Cheesy yes, but it was utterly soapy romantic, but it really was worth watching. Albeit being too commercial for my taste, and never really taking risks, this is the classic textbook definition of going by the rules or going by with what you know best and performing exceptionally, and the movie paid off really well. B+
Romantic Philippine movies will always have a special place in my heart! Haha My favorite director is Cathy Garcia-Molina. All her movies are really great, super great! I like all the twists in every movie she made and I like how smoothly each story runs… ❤💚💙💛💜
Even if I’m here in New York, we really watched It Takes a Man and a Woman. I am a huge fan of Sarah-Lloydie love team. I love them lots!
What can I say? OMG it was one sexy movie.
of all the JLC films I’ve watched I guess this by far is the sexiest.
Angel was smoking hot in this film. Her character was amazing, her acting was superb. I’ve never really liked her before because of the fact that she was with GMA 7. I guess she has improved and evolved a lot as an actress. I don’t want to comment on that one since I am not that knowledgeable when it comes to the acting do’s and don’ts.
Going back to my rough movie review. I am a big fan of romcom movies, as a fan of such genre I guess the story of UY is not that new to this line of films but it was something fresh especially for pinoy viewers. I think pinoy cinema is starting to accept such liberation. It talked about something that we see everyday but refuse to acknowledge. I liked how it was presented with humour which made it easier to digest especially for people who are not used to seeing such or for people who are in denial that such relationships do exist.
The word “relationship” is such a broad word.I can never give a definite definition for it especially when you are talking about a relationship that involves love. What do we have to label? Is it the LOVE or the RELATIONSHIP?
The first part of the movie was really good. It blew me away, the cuteness the cheezy lines everything about the first part was like a reminder of how my relationships were before.I wish the last part was longer I mean just make a better finish lol . Overall it was a good film. All I can say is that this film will start a new trend and I hope it will open doors for stories and issues worth making a movie for.
Let’s support Pinoy Cinema!
I wish that production houses produce a film with subtitles on during screenings here in Manila so my GF can watch it with me..I always have to buy dvd copies after few months of the movie’s release it is EXPENSIVE lol :( come on… lots of foreigners here in our country let them enjoy TAGALOG films come on :) just saying lol
forever and a day
watched it last night just for the fact that it’s Cathy Garcia-Molina who directed it. I’m not a fan of KC and Sam, but heck it’s a tear jerker. Or is it just us? Me and my two cousins went out of the cinema, see our eyes then laugh each other out cause we all looked so wasted. HAHA! The story is simple yet the lines and the truth presented were just realities we just have to accept in life. Not just that typical love story but I’m more seeing it as a story you’ll learn from the characters’ life.
And tell you the scenes were amazing. You’ll see the beauty of Cagayan De Oro and provinces nearby. We’d like to plan a trip there soon just seeing that lovely places.
Anyways, thank God the rain stopped yesterday, we just so traumatized by Ondoy that we didn’t want something like that to happen again.
So there, have a blessed sunday guys! :)
