NEW MOVIES THIS WEEK

[hit the jump to continue]


The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2
This is the second of two cinematic parts of the adaptation of "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay" book written by Suzanne Collins, is the final chapter in the epic dystopian futuristic sci-fi war series Hunger Games saga.

Directed by Francis Lawrence with a screenplay by Peter Craig and Danny Strong, and stars Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Woody Harrelson, Elizabeth Banks, Julianne Moore, Sam Claflin, Jena Malone, Philip Seymour Hoffman (in his final film role), and Donald Sutherland. The plot concludes the story of Katniss Everdeen; realizing the stakes are no longer just for survival, Katniss teams up with her closest friends, including Peeta, Gale, and Finnick for the ultimate mission. Together, they leave District 13 to liberate the citizens of war-torn Panem and assassinate President Snow, who's obsessed with destroying Katniss.

SNAP RECOMMENDATION: It's a continuation of a four-part film series, so it would be best to watch the three other movies that came first. Despite its flaws in directing and storyline details, the movie, as a whole, tells a solid tale that relevantly taps into the subject matter of idealogical violence, conflict, and politics.  

The Visit
Dubbed as his redeeming return to form, The Visit is a found footage horror film written, produced and directed by M. Night Shyamalan, and stars Olivia DeJonge, Ed Oxenbould, Deanna Dunagan, Peter McRobbie, and Kathryn Hahn.
SNAP IMPRESSION: Receiving much buzz and praise gives me the excitement to see this movie. And because it's a Shyamalan movie, it would be best to stay away from story infos if you want to avoid spoilers

Wang Fam
A family of aswang attempt to transition into a living a more normal, less monstrous life. Directed by Wenn Deramas, it stars Pokwang , Benjie Paras, and Wendell Ramos.
SNAP IMPRESSION: Silly costumes. Very, very.... VERY thick make-up. And jokes that I personally dont really find funny. And from the director of such films as "Praybeyt Benjamin" "Sisterakas" and "Moron 5 and the Crying Lady" ...No, thanks!

Paraiso
A documentary film that follows the lives of child survivors one month after the tragedy of Typhoon Haiyan. We will see their struggles as they live on and rebuild their lives in what was once their Paraiso, which is but a memory of tragedy and great loss. The film screens at the FDCP Cinematheque, Solis St., Iloilo City.
RECOMMENDATION: Touching and powerful, this movie is for those who appreciate documentaries about the survival of the human spirit. [RETURN TO MAIN PAGE]
