BOSES: A Tagalog Indie Film about Child Abuse Every Filipino Parent should Watch! @BOSESTheMovie

600880_364750100291812_314077725_n
We watched the homecoming screening of BOSES at Cinemalaya, and Wolverine last Sunday.

Wolverine was visually entertaining, but we never talked about it after the movie. BOSES, on the other hand, kept us reflecting on child abuses at home or around us and what are we doing about it.

  • During the times when you become a "monster" parent, do you verbally and physically harm your kids?
  • What will you do if you heard of a child abuse from your neighborhood? Will you just ignore it and mind your own business, or will you help stop it?
  • Do you bully your own kids or tolerate bullying in any form?

This is the movie that every Filipino parent should watch!

Soy Muy Amigo (I Am a Dear Friend)

amigo

The Spaniards colonized us through religion, converting native Filipinos into Christians...

The Americans seduced us with the promise of Democracy and Freedom...

Which leads us to the question: What does it really mean to be a Filipino without the influences of our colonial masters?

This movie was made for our generation, maybe to give us a glimpse of what it means to be Filipino.

We were blown away by the first public premiere of Dayo the Movie last Friday. I almost shed a tear when the movie finished because Filipinos have finally created the first All-Digital Animated Movie that we all can be proud of.

The Dark Knight Premieres in IMAX SM Mall of Asia, Manila

The Dark Night
BATMAN - The Dark Knight
premiered in IMAX SM Mall of Asia in Manila, Philippines last night.

It is brilliant, dark and disturbing.
It is definitely, a Christopher Nolan masterpiece.
We were emotionally involved with the fears and hopes of the citizen of Gotham.

I was scared of Joker. Heath Ledger's performance was no joke.
I'm torn between giving him a standing ovation for his performance or
Feeling angry with the way he terrorized the citizens of Gotham.

The IMAX screen brought Batman to life.
It was responsible for the fears and drama that the audience felt.
I felt like I'm a citizen of Gotham City.

Most of the cinematic and action scenes are filmed in the highest IMAX film resolution.
You can distinguish the IMAX 2D scenes where the pictures are taller than it is wide.
With this, you are engulfed by the emotions and drama of the entire scene.

The trailer was just a teaser.
If you love it, wait till you see the rest of the movie.
Bravo to the brilliant writer of The Dark Knight!

A lot of people died in the movie.
Heath Ledger died after shooting this movie.
It was neither a happy or sad ending.

Saying that this is "The Movie Event of the Year" is an understatement.
This is not for kids and I would not consider this a cartoon anymore.
Just watch it.
