    Bakit ganun dito sa Pilipinas?
    Lahat ng quality movies, puro indie films.

    Ung mga big budget films naman, kung di patweetams, walang katuturan nman ung story (in short commercialized films)……. and take note big stars pa ang mga bida…..

    Let’s face it, pinapanood ng marami ang pinoy movies not because of the movie itself but because of the stars…..

    Hay, sana matuto tau from south korean films or japanese films, they have one of the most successful movie industries in the world. They spend big budgets on quality films and fantastic plots, not just on the stars… AT the end, their movies are being praised all over the world..

    I like one of its films, entitled “Yanggaw”. Even hindi talaga siya the best pero I like it because it was an ilonggo film.

    Bal-an mo ilonggo man takun ya.
