Say What?!

If Unkabogable Praybeyt Benjamin (so they say) is the highest grossing local film of all time, what does that say about the Filipino movie-going audience?

it shows how interested we are in gay humor...nothing wrong with that of course. The film itself though, as a whole, was a total waste of my time...really?? top grossing??? well, what do you expect? most Filipinos ay mababaw ang kaligayahan! buti na lang I just downloaded the movie from torrent!...babe

Can I be nasty today?
Or just be really honest.
Promise.
It’ll be just today.

I think Filipinos have lost their sense of discernment.
I have nothing against homosexuals. I believe they need guidance and help.
They need friends and family to guide and love them and to bring them back.
No matter how these people look like or dress up or behave, they are still either man or woman.
And that’s it.
However I am wary over patronizing acts of homosexuality.
All the more a movie about them.
Homosexual tendencies are understandable.
It is the acts of homosexuality that is not right may it be from the perspective of Faith or humanity’s survival.

When people watch movies like this, it is in a way supporting their acts of homosexuality.
It is in a way a showcase of acceptability to acts of homosexuality.
And I don’t agree with it.

I don’t have to elaborate why. The pros and cons are obvious to the critical mind.

anonymous, Wow. Hehe

pete said...

panalo si anonymous a!

Raft3r said...

kasi madali lang gawin ang script at madali lang ang budget at madali lang patawanin ang pinoy. Nope that is like saying pinoys are retards and cannot appreciate seinfeld humor or humor ng mga talk show hosts kahit si jay leno at lalo na si conan at david letterman. parang ganyan ginawa ng mga kastila nung panahon nila dito, ginawa tayong mangmang para madaling gawing alipin. hanggang ngayon passive pa rin karamihan ng pinoy. sagot pa ng iba, eh kasi yan ang nakagisnan. ay ewan. /TM

Raft3r said...

tm, Valid points right there. Hehe

eden said...

Raft3r said...

len said...

Kumita ba talaga iyan? Malaki mag-padding ang Star Cinema.

Plus the fact that movie tickets are way expensive now.

Raft3r said...

len, Agree! Nyahaha
