“I really did not expect anyone to say this to me. “No time for that.” Grabe. Seryoso ba? As a new producer, these words really broke my heart. Ang sakit,” said Richard.

“But this really highlights the challenge that all we Filipino filmmakers face, because let’s be real — lahat tayo may mga kaibigan na ganun din. I get it, not every film will resonate with everyone, and that’s 100% fine. Criticism is part of it naman talaga. But dismissing all local films outright? Wag naman? Sobrang sakit talaga,” he added.

Ang tawag dyan, FEELING COOL. Yan yung mga very low mentality na ang feeling nila cool kapag foreign at baduy kapag dito satin. Nakakasuka sya. SOCIAL CLIMBER at its finest,” netizen Anton said.

“I really find Pinoy films/movies plain and repetitive talaga kaya minsan sobrang boring na, dinadala nalang talaga ng actors minsan. Sobrang pili nalang yung nakaka hook talaga at may ibang timpla. Pero I wouldn’t do this for an invite napaka feeling relevant naman nito,” netizen Magus remarked.
