What did I feel about the ending of MEANT TO BE? (GMA 7)---plus some thoughts about Encatadia and DTBY

Barbie and Her "Kens" (A Dollywood Title)
#TeamYuan #KenBie

My bubble was burst when the last scene after the credits was shown.  JEYA (Jai, Ethan, Yuan and Andoy) just woke up from a heavy night and they were wondering what happened then in big bold letters this was shown on the TV screen:  Ano nga ba? SOON!

Ngarks.

I was already very happy that BARBIE (Forteza as Billie Bendiola) and KEN (Chan as Yuan Lee or Lee Yuan) ended up together.  I even shouted it via FB(viewed by Friends of Friends) then as I was enjoying the after credits scenes, the very last one was that messy pool scene.

Everything was just a dream!

Come on!

I know it's fiction, but to play with our emotions like that?  That such BS. If I only knew that they'd do that, I would've finished Father Rio's send off party.  :-p  It's different when people wake up from a nightmare, but my goolai.  Why did they have to make it a dream?  If they want Barbie(at least her character) to end up with all four…

Transformers: The Last Knight 2017 ‧ Science fiction film/Thriller ‧ 2h 30mHumans are at war with the Transformers, and Optimus Prime is gone. The key to saving the future lies buried in the secrets of the past and the hidden history of Transformers on Earth.

Release date: 21 June 2017 (Philippines) Director: Michael Bay Based on: Transformers; by Hasbro Budget: 260 million USD Music composed by: Steve Jablonsky Bonifacio High Street Central Square Cinemas
This long-awaited movie is worth it.  Yes, it's still very long even if Michael Bay shortened it(a little more than 2 1/2 hours), but the scenes were pretty exciting, so I didn't notice the time. For a non-expert or ordinary viewer I could say I love the special effects.
As for the story?  It needs work.  Earth=Unicorn...I mean, Unicron.  :-p  For a mi…

Despicable M3 (PG-13) Just my personal thoughts about it

Family is not only by blood  💜💜💜💜💜💜💜 Release date: 14 June 2017 (Philippines) Directors: Pierre Coffin, Kyle Balda Music composed by: Heitor Pereira Film series: Despicable Me Production companies: Universal Pictures, Illumination Entertainment
Gru (Steve Carell) and his wife Lucy (Kristen Wiig) must stop former '80s child star Balthazar Bratt (Trey Parker) from achieving world domination. -WWW

STRONG PARENTAL GUIDANCE should have been the rating of this movie, but they wanted this to be a family film, so it's just PG here in the Republic of the Philippines.

It's always a joy to watch Gru, the minions and the girls, but when Lucy entered the picture in the first franchise and second installment, I must say that for me, it became more exciting.

Of course, nothing beats the original, but this is a fun movie too, but there are lots of scenes traumatizing for very young kids, so please do your roles…

I chanced upon this movie because dad was watching this.  He just came from breakfast with friends and he was resting a bit.  He was quite impressed with "Loki" and we both wondered if this was shown in the Philippines.  "Where were we when this was shown?"
We were moved as the story progressed, but found a lot of things off and odd.  There were many great and wonderful things that Mr. Hank Williams contributed to soc…
