You're still the one

"You're still the one" is a film about two childhood sweethearts whose love never seems to meet.

The technical side is seamless, a source of pride of Star Cinema, although there are inconsistencies in the cultural behaviors of the different era.  The script has a sense and leads towards a desirable ending.

The only thing to watch out for are moral assumptions in the movie - premarital sex and adultery which is portrayed as too casual and accepted among Filipinos.  Let us be sensitive to those who uphold the sacredness of married life and of true friendships.

Rating: 2.5/5

Pitch Perfect 2

Pitch Perfect 2 is a film about a group of high school girls who has to save their sinking reputation.

Without being a spoiler, endings for genres such as these would most likely be predictable.  The only concern is how to get there.  On the technical side, the musical parts are very interesting and entertaining.

There is much more than singing with technical expertise.  Get into the soul of things.  You'll see, friendships do matter.

Rating:  3/5
