10 Films

10.jpg

Jolens tagged me in a post, some kind of chain letter. She said “list 10 books that stayed with you in some way. Don’t take more than a few minutes and don’t think too hard. They don’t have to be ‘right’ or ‘great’ works.” I did the list, but I cheated—couldn’t make a list of 10 in just few minutes. She suggested that I do movies instead. I said okay, but I made three sets instead of one—in less than five minutes. First, I limited myself to pick only Filipino films. Then, foreign films, which I kind of did already before. For the third, I made a list of movies which I thought have a strong (or at least memorable) female character, or features mostly female characters. Not that the first two lists lack in that department, some of those movies (e.g., Nausicaa, Terminator, Segurista) also belong to the third list.

  1. Naks, may special category ang mga babae. Kung ang trigger ay movies with strong/memorable female characters, ito ang mga pumasok sa isip ko:

    Thelma & Louise / Mad Max: Fury Road / Crying Ladies / Dekada ’70 / Anak / Bata, Bata, Paano Ka Ginawa? / Amelie / Feng Shui / Soltera

    Ngayon ko lang na-realize na ang dami ko palang napanood na pelikula ni Ate Vi. Hahaha.

    Nagustuhan mo ba ang ‘The Notebook’ o pumasok lang sa isip mo? ‘Pag tinatanong ako kung may pelikula bang mas maganda sa libro, sinasagot ko ‘The Notebook’ hahaha. Korni kasi ng libro e. Korni din ‘yung pelikula pero I guess it’s better? Choz.

    At may kopya ka ng ‘Kakaba-kaba Ka Ba’? Inalis na yata sa YouTube e. May DVD copies ba ‘yung mga pelikulang ni-restore ng ABS-CBN? Kapag naging available online at nagkapera ako, bibili ako ng mga ‘yun.

    1. Nagawa ko na ‘to kasi dati, based sa FB post. Lumabas halos lahat Hollywood movies. Kaya pinaghiwalay ko. Yung female category naman, may 2 – 3 movies pa ko na naiisip tapos sabi ko baka male-centric masyado yung list. Kaya ayan.

      Naisip ko lang yung The Notebook dahil kay Rachel McAdams na nasa The Hot Chick din (ang galing ni Rob Schneider dito, promise). Corny yata lahat ng libro nya. Nadala siguro ng lead actors yung The Notebook (iniisip ko ngayon kung ano nga ba ang notebook dun sa kwento, di ko maalala). Fury Road + Ate Vi + Lualhati Bautista, ang “werpa” naman ng line up na yan. Strong ba yung character Kris Aquino sa Feng Shui? O strong lang sya sumigaw? 😁 Parang ayoko yata maging isang strong character kung si Kris ang reference. Mas gusto ko yung Sukob, nakakatakot yung batang multona nakagown at medyo mas may lalim yung kwento.

      Meron, galing sa YT 😁. May dvd at meron yata sa itunes. Hanap ako link or upload ko pag kakayanin ng iternet namin. May copy din ako nung Shift na napagusapan dun sa isa mong post.

      1. ‘Yung notebook ‘yung binabasa n’ung lolo sa lola na hindi na makaalala. Diary yata or something, haha.

        ‘Yung Feng Shui, naisip ko kasi babae lahat ng relevant characters. Babae ‘yung bida, babae ‘yung supporting characters, babae rin ‘yung mumu. Hindi ko na maalala ang kwento though, so malay ko kung pro-women talaga ito hahaha.

        Pahingi ng kopya ng Shift! Kahit ‘yun na muna, haha. No rush, kung kailan lang bumilis ang internet d’yan. ‘Di ko rin naman mapapanood until mga April siguro haha. Thank you! 🙂
