What to watch on the 2014 MMFF?


Every Christmas Day in the Philippines, there's an annual film festival going on where all cinemas across the Philippines are allowed to showed all of the official entries from the festival we all know as the Metro Manila Film Festival. For 2014, we'd expect returns from our favorite movies while a few are new to us. So, what to watch?

Bonifacio: Ang Unang Pangulo - This powerful biopic uncovers the untold story of Andres Bonifacio, a man who was born to lead the Philippines as the nation's first president during the era of the Spaniards' colonization. It stars Robin Padilla, Vina Morales, and Daniel Padilla.

English Only, Please - A romantic movie stars Derek Ramsay as a Fil-Am man who hires a translator, played by Jennylyn Mercado, to translate the letter he wrote for the woman who broke his heart.

The Amazing Praybeyt Benjamin - The sequel to the first film sees Vice Ganda reprising his role as Praybeyt Benjamin. He once saved his nation from a renegade army but for this sequel, he's on a mission to protect a child prodigy, whose intelligence has been targeted by terrorists. It also stars Richard Yap and Tom Rodriguez.

Feng Shui 2 - Sequel to the 2004 horror movie that starred Kris Aquino, this new chapter stars Coco Martin as a young man who possesses an ancient mirror that caused him grievances.

Kubot: The Aswang Chronicles 2 - Sequel to Tiktik: The Aswang Chronicles. Dingdong Dantes reprises his role as Makoy who is now caught on the conflict between different aswang families and a deadly conspiracy.

Magnum Muslim .357 - loosely a rebirth of the FPJ classic, George Estregan stars as a Muslim cop who battles his way against a criminal syndicate who abducted the Muslim princess, played by Sam Pinto.

My Big Bossing - sequel to last year's My Little Bossings, this movie brings back Vic Sotto, Ryzza Mae Dizon, Marian Rivera, Bimby Aquino, and many others. Three hilarious misadventures have been occurred in this sequel.

Shake Rattle, and Roll XV - the legendary horror anthology is back and for its 15th installment, it features a snake creature at the mall, a family of monsters, and a tiyanak hijacking a plane. Scary but fun.

The 2014 Metro Manila Film Festival runs now until the first week of January 2015 so if you're on a Christmas break, why not spend some time going to the theaters to watch one of the eight official entries to this year's film fest?
