    Kakabakaba Ka Ba?

    ★★★½

    Trippy comedy musical.

    And it's nice to see Mike De Leon's openness to do this kind of musical with zany dialogues that make it so funny.

    Sorry for the word pero ang sarap ni young Christopher De Leon dito. Love the scene na kumakanta siya sa bar.

    Sorry kaya 3.5 kasi 'di ko magustuhan ang treatment sa character ni Sandy Andolong dito.

    Leonor Will Never Die

    ★★★★

    As early as now, Leonor Will Never Die is one of the best Filipino films of 2022.

    This film pays tribute to a once glorious action genre in Philippine cinema. Leonor Reyes reflects the current status of Philippine cinema. Yes, some might say it's dying but it's really thriving.

    I like how the filmmaker used the name Ronwaldo because it's the pseudonym/pen name of FPJ as director "Ronwaldo Reyes".

    Deserving Volpi Cup for Best Actor John Arcilla. Congratulations! Walang ibang actor akong naisip to portray Sisoy. John Arcilla owned it just like what he did in Heneral Luna. You can feel the conviction of his character because of Arcilla's great performance. Kung ibang actor ang nag-portray, iba ang magiging dating.

    Maganda na sinakto ni direk Erik Matti ang release nito this year. Napakahusay. Timely, relevant, gripping and compelling.

    Kudos din kay Lotlot De Leon for having two best supporting performances this year. First, sa "Dito at Doon". Second, dito sa "On The Job 2".

    Magaling ang ensemble. Superb screenplay. Top notch editing. Exceptional soundtrack.
