  3. gaya ng mainstream, may pangit din na gawa ng higanting producers. sa indie, may mga di gaanong maganda pero mas marami ang de-kalidad. maraming indie na akala mo, 10 milyon ang budget. nagkataon lang na di gaano kilala ang mga gumanap pero kung sa lahat na aspeto ang pag-uusapan, wow, mataas ang kalidad. Ilan dito, ang mula sa Davao City na Hunghong sa Yuta, Hospital Boat, Sheika. Ganun din iyong Last Supper No. 3, Boses at Pisay na tig- 1 milliuon lang ang binudget! I-encourage natin ang mga indie fikmmakers kasi naghahatid sa atin ng karangalan sa ibang bansa.

    You know, overrated ang mga indie movies. I think the awards given to them were just for encouragement purposes! Kasi kung quality ang pag-uusapan di hamak na mas maganda ang mga mainstream movies…kasi po kung talagang maganda ang mga indie movies na yan sana kumita man lang nang konti sa takilya? ang kaso bagsak…luging lugi!

    Actually may nanalo naman sa GMA-7 si Sid Lucero pero mas lamang ang ABS dito kasi ang mga nanalo sa kanila ay sina joem bascon, coco martin, gina pareño, cherry pie picache, at ang damgo ni eleuteria na bahagi ng cinema one originals na hawak ng dos.
