- 99% of actors/actresses crying will almost intentionally let their tears roll down their cheek (even during interviews)

In Filipino movies, there is always a scene where the actors are either in a picnic or on the beach.

In a Filipino action movie, the police often shows up just before the end credits roll.  :)

Well, Local Tagalog Hit Song tend to have a spot to be turned into a Movie ( even if the song got nothing to do with the film).

Bonus Material - Even Though this feature SUCKS, its part of the DVD

- Flash Bayan
- Flash Tourism
- More than the usual Man

Oh Geez, no wonder why his name is DICK ( For Dick Gordon ) ... opportunistic politician, using SEX to Sell



* My thoughts

1. Owning most of the titles included on the DVD, its no suprise that they disected those scenes and pasted it up in this DVD

2. For those who are whining about "Dark Scenes" , geez werent you used with Viva DVDs? its a typical thing. Again comparing these scenes shown from their original DVDs, nothing change as in they are all dark

3. After a Long wait, finally the cutted scenes from Unfaithful Wife 2 is finally included

4. For those who seek, Pinoy Skin.. this DVD is highly recommended! WHY? if you were like me, you will spend a lot of money buying the individual titled Pinoy Sexy DVD.. but with this, you will not worry anymore as those "needed to be fast forward to be seen scenes" are now compiled for your viewing pleasure and with an economic price of P300/$15

5. Cant wait, if there is a sequel to this skinny dipping DVD compilation!


As for the dubbed warning label FOR ADULTS ONLY << duhh?? why were they not placed with those individual DVD titles where the scenes came from? .. Kalokohan  O0

Additional observation:

2. Lahat ng dialogue ng characters archaic Pilipino words ang ginagamit. Ex: Inay, bakit mo kami iniwan nila Itay! Ngayon ay wala nang mag-aalaga sa aming mga magkakapatid! Not even our maids talk like that.

Many Filipino families still talk like this, especially the ones surrounding Manila like Bulacan, Laguna, Cavite, etc. Both my parents are born in Manila and so am I and yet we talk like this.

Box Office? in Pinas.. box office is nonsense.. Typical Filipino Films do not achieve box office status ...

Well.. its kinda weird? no matter how hard pinoys create a film at present.. so funny they cannot even get a chance entering an oscar nod....

Its like in the PBA... Pinoys love basketball.. but not even a single pinoy was able to play in the Leagues

Therefore.. No Chance in Hell a Pinoy film will be able to enter an Oscar Nod...

1. You are an authority on Filipino box office? You can cite figures?

2. If Filipino films do not achieve b.o. status, how was the industry created?

Quote

Why go for Oscars? Is this some indicator of quality?

It's like some Pinoys...they love American films...but no way in hell will they ever be mistaken for Americans...have to show a greencard or passport first...

i agree w/ regards to the PBA players. not to say we don't have skill, but its more on the physical side.

on films, yes we can. the oscars may snob us but it doesn't mean we cant be "oscars" quality.

Recently I've avoided being confrontational over here in these boards because most times it just isn't worth it (I have a life). But with this discussion I just couldn't help but give in to temptation and step into the fray, even if there were times when I thought that it wouldn't be fair to argue with a guy who doesn't even see to have enough brainpower to absorb (if not through education, at least through socio-cultural osmosis) the basics of English grammar (and spelling, and vocabulary), or comprehend the logic that by insulting his own (so very obvious) origins the person he is insulting the most is himself.

Noel definitely has his detractors and his faults, but suggesting that this little tiff is enough to make him insecure is like having a rabid Austrolopithecus provoke Einstein into losing his cool. And obviously, he's not the only one expressing disdain at your comments, so he has no reason to feel cornered and start lashing out illogically as some persons (true to their form) tend to do.

By the way, I do have a US visa, but I hardly consider it to be the single greatest accomplishment of my life, or the only aspect of my identity that's worth lording over other people. If you have nothing significant to contribute to the topic of Pinoy Entertainment besides unwarranted put-downs then maybe you shouldn't really hang out in this forum.

I suggest that the next time you watch your American movies maybe you can turn the English subtitles on so you can start having a better idea of how their words and sentences are formed. I'm not sure if Sesame Street is available on DVD yet, but there's always Barney and the Teletubbies. I know it's hard to learn a new language, but you're already half-way there. Vives en California, verdad? Si no tienes amigos Anglos, quiza podrias pedir tus amigos Latinos ayudarte con el Ingles.

It's hard to deny that here in metro manila the public majority goes for foreign film, American made films in particular.Why? Is it because it is made better than local films? Are the plots better?Better graphics? Better everything? Or is it just because most of the public have been brainwashed to believe that American films are better? Hard to say.Each and everyone has their own reasons and their own tastes but I would say mostly because it is embedded in the majority that U.S. made is better than local (PX goods mentality). Would one rather watch the Incredibles or Gagamboy?

It is only now that other foreign asian films, horror films in particular are being shown in cinemas but I believe that this is kind of a fad right now(but isn't japanese cinema kick ass? :) ).The majority would go back to watching U.S. made films. I myself started to watch local films and I believe that it is getting pretty good compared to past films.Classic pinoy films is of course incomparable to the majority of recent mediocre ST films.But then it is these ST films that make money so  why not continue producing them?Medyo napansin ko na pakonti na ang ST films these days or I may be wrong. It's hard not to compare Philippine cinema with the U.S. especially if most of the films made here are STs.But the movies now are definitely getting better and it is getting past being just one of those typical pinoy films.

OT:Since the PBA was brought up I was wondering why most Filipino basketball fanatics like to watch imports or so called Fil-Ams rather than pinoy players.This is really mind boggling.They would rather cheer the imports or the fil-ams which already have better pay than local players ( I may be wrong on this but I doubt it). Of course pinoy players are smaller in body structure and even height but this is because of the limited physical built for Pinoys. Dapat ban na yang mga imports na yan at yong mga so called Fil-Ams na yan na nagdadala pa ng  lola daw para patunayan lang na may Pinoy blood sila. PBA is for Pinoys whether you have chinese, spanish, etc as long as you were born and raised in the Phil. and should not be dominated by other nationalities especially those with dual citizenship.If this was the preferred players, might as well get foreigners to play the league.This love for anyting american goes deep in pinoy roots and it shows in basketball and the movies. One thing though, sina Artest dapat itapat sa grupo nila Jaworski, then he would be taught a thing or two about courtside brawls. :)

Typical filipino action film: A drug lord for a villain with all his cronies by his side. They call the contraband "epektus" and the main villain call his cronies "mga bata". " O mga bata,  ideliver niyo na ang mga shipment ng epektus".

Another typical action film: Verbal exchanges between the hero and villain while hiding behind a wall ( this is often more effective if both have guns on their hand). At the end of the exchange, the hero says the title of the movie.

Hehehe... that's always been a "must"  scene in Filipino acton movies... Do you notice also that Filipino kontrabidas are always portrayed in a streotypical fashion - well the extras anyway? With moustaches or beards, cigarette smokers, tatooed, and by golly... always wearing jackets!  JACKETS in the heat and humidity of the Philippines!  ;D

One other scene typical of Filipino movies & I am sure it has been mentioned it this thread already -- it's the obligatory song & dance number usually sa beach  ;D

pati yata mga pulis natin ganito na ang hinahanap na mga goons, akala nila ganyan pa rin ang mga getup nga mga bad elements,

now, criminals are in their long sleeves/slacks in a camry

Quote
At least four heavily armed men divested a Valenzuela City businessman of his belongings, including his Toyota Revo before dawn yesterday along a highway in the coastal town of Navotas.

Police reports said that victim Lim Shicai, 24, of Maysan Road, Valenzuela City, was waylaid by the suspects, who were aboard a Toyota Camry on Road-10 in North Bay Boulevard South (NBBS) at around 2:55 a.m.

The suspects’ car overtook the victim’s maroon Revo (XGP 858) on a dimly lit portion of the highway.

Three men, armed with short and long firearms alighted from the Camry and ordered the trader to open the van’s car door.

One of the armed men took the wheel of the Revo while the two others sat in the back with the victim.

They sped off toward Quezon City, but upon reaching Araneta Avenue, the thieves dumped Shicai, but not after divesting him of cash and other valuables.

He immediately reported the incident to the Quezon City police, but was also advised to report to the Navotas police for the actual car theft that occurred in the area.

Navotas police said that the victim failed to get the plate number as well as the color of the vehicle that blocked his path.

Camry ha! At least hindi kakarag-karag na kotse... In typical Filipino action movies, the bad guys would be in very nice cars, then towards the middle or the end, nagiging karag-karag kotse nila because papasabugin...
