Indie-mood to write

I have been watching local indie movies lately, and I thought to share my two cents with you!

Actually, I have watched 4 out 7 movies listed here in iflix. Iflix offers a one-month free trial (which I used!), and the links are already indicated below for your convenience. 🙂

Brilliant. The way the story transpired was impeccable. I’m not a Vilmanian (or any other -nian for that matter) but hands down Mam, hands down. Okay, I seriously need a hands down emoji right now.

Sana Dati (2013)

For me, this has to be the epitome of an indie film in this list. The story encompassed in a wedding scene, with a few flashbacks and inserts here and there. It was simple but clean. There were not much lines but the feelings were ~very~ present and successfully conveyed.

On The Job (2013)

Eyeopener. A fearless movie which exposes the dirty side of Philippine politics. The cast is packed with “mainstream” actors and actresses but it did not in any way affect the gist at all. It even helped me as a viewer to remember which character is which since I’m not really good with names and (new) faces. And if this is a cake, it’s delectable from the first bite up to the last.

Ang Kwento Nating Dalawa (2015)

Kinda boring. There was no high point. When the movie was approaching its end, I was crossing my fingers for something to happen to change my mind but there wasn’t. Maybe that’s why it has a part 2? I am intrigued and will watch it for sure.

Ang Babae sa Septic Tank 2: #ForeverIsNotEnough (2016)
Ratings: 3.5/4


I really didn’t have much expectations for this movie. I honestly watched just for the sake of having fun. And it did not disappoint. I was even crying myself to tears! Eugene Domingo proved that she is one of the best comedian in the local show business.

Sakaling Hindi Makarating (2016)
Ratings: 3.5/4


I really enjoyed the plot twist. I would like to tell more but I don’t wanna be a spoiler *wink*. I also loved that this movie showcased the Philippines’ beautiful destinations, and in a major way promoted tourism. I wanted to pack my bag and book a domestic flight right after watching!

I’m Drunk I Love You (2017)
Ratings: 3/4


So much ~feels~ especially for guys/girls out there in love with their bestfriends! The plot is definitely not new, but the story of friendship alongside one-sided love made the film relatable to many. Now, where to grab a bottle of beer?
