Maybe This Time (2014)
My stand is: What's in the past should remain in the past, but when there's no closure, I think, if both of you are still free, you should, at the very least, talk...either to finally end it or to be together again.
Coco Martin is very natural. The role is fit for him and his baby face charms never fails to make the ladies and the homosexuals shriek. Some people in the movie house were shouting, "I love you so much!" Oh shucks. ;-) I still like him better in more serious roles, but hey, he's definitely an eye candy here.
The scenes in Bataan were glorious...sigh.
Sharmaine Centenera Buencamino is awesome as Steph's mom and Boboy Garovillo was also very believable.
Ogie Diaz was exceptionally funny here(10 props, five stars, standing ovation) and among Steph's four friends, Kooks(Garlic Garcia) stood out.
Ruffa G. is beautiful here as Monica, but her character was annoying. I was hoping that Monica was just misunderstood and that there was a deeper reason why she was like that. Her friends seemed OK, but she stereo-typed them. Oh well. Yes, there are people like her in real life, but...Please give Ruffa G. better projects. Whether as a villainess, a bida-contrabida or a woman with substance and strong personality, please give her better projects. This is a good movie, but I think...
Anyways, I still commend Anton Santamaria and Melai Monge for writing a good script...for making an old story still interesting, no matter what the critics say.
Congratulations to the cast and crew, most especially the good director, Jerry Lopez Sineneng.
