Got to believe in magic..

Posted on: April 28, 2009

I confess that I am a major fan of all those super sappy Filipino romantic comedies.. they are wonderfully sappy movies.. always with a happy ending.. always some sort of super cutesy romantic gesture at the end.. and they always.. always.. ALWAYS.. make me cry..

I love them so..

Here’s a list of a few that I have seen.. and loved..

Got 2 Believe
Wonderful movie.. it’s got a great theme song.. the song is actually stuck in my head right now.. it’s what promted me to write this blog entry..

A Very Special Love
I just recently saw this movie.. it was sooo cute.  It had a cute story line and a cute actor.. and oh.. it was so sappy.. of course I cried at the end.. and there was the obligatory moment when you think it all falls apart.. then it doesn’t and they live happily ever after..

Now That I Have You
I loved the leads in this movie so much that when they did a press tour in the US.. I had to go and I got my copy of the movie autographed.  I even have pictures with the two leads.. ah.. memories..

Those are the top three.. for now.. there are the romantic movies that are more serious.. those are the kind of movies where I am pretty much crying from beginning to end.. I always feel so emotionally drained after those movies..

Those Filipinos.. really know how to work the emotions of their audience..

Last time I visited Davao, I had a bad cold and stayed in watching the soaps. Got hooked on some soap about a girl who was separated from her boyfriend as kids. He ends up rich and she ends up the daughter of the housekeeper servicing the rich boys family. Although the guy was engaged to another rich girl he fell for the housekeeper’s daughter.

Sad ending though, she got killed by a bus. Didn’t see the rest of the story as I had to fly back home. But it was very addicting. And I don’t even speak Tagalog. Wish I knew how the story ended — over a year later.
