My Top 10 Filipino Movies
I’m a Filipino. So proud to be one! Here’s the list of my top 10 WORLD-CLASS Filipino movies. (In random orders) BEST MOVIES ever!

1. Anak (The Child) (2000)

Synopsis:
Josie (Vilma Santos)works as a domestic helper in Hong Kong who is forced to leave her family behind and let her husband do her part as a mother to their three children. Her employer doesn't allow her to take vacations and locks her inside the house whenever the family leaves the house. Thus,it was already late when she learned that her husband died. When she returned to the Manila after ten years, she was greeted with her children's resentment. A rebel daughter in her eldest daughter Carla (Claudine Barretto), Michael (Baron Geisler) is in deep trouble in school and the youngest, Daday (Sheila Junsay) doesn't even have a single memory of her.Josie is faced with a mother's agony of bringing back the broken pieces of her shattered family.

WHY?
--- The story is very touching. I don’t know how many times I’ve cried while watching this movie. Once you’ve watched this movie, you will appreciate more of your parents’ sacrifices and hardships just to provide everything you needed, may not be in the form of material things but in terms of unconditional love they give to us.

Here’s the link where you can watch the trailer:

2. Magnifico (2003)

Synopsis:
Set in an impoverished town, a couple begin to lose hope and courage when faced with life's adversities - a daughter who suffers from cerebral palsy, a son who loses his scholarship, and a young boy named Magnifico or Ikoy, who is not so good in school. But Ikoy is gifted with a good heart and a large spirit that allows him to give joy to hopeless people in their community and magically transforms their lives for the better.

WHY?
--- I love everything about this movie. The plot of the stories, the cast… everything. Though it did not end the way we wanted (happy ending), at any rate, it gave us lessons we should always put in our heart.(Heartbreaking movie! Awww… ) But I really really love this movie (so much).

A short time after Helen's father died, Helen proceeded with her wedding. A few weeks after the wedding, Helen's husband dies in a plane crash. As Helen goes to the crash site, she dies in a bus accident. A few weeks later, Helen's mother suddenly disappears inside her house. Their bodies have never been recovered.

Things become more mysterious when Sandy receives their respective wedding photos. The people who died are headless in the photos. They realize that all the headless people in the photos are bound to die. Joya tells Sandy that she is cursed by the "sukob." Sandy is shocked - no one in her family has died recently, nor has anyone gotten married. In searching for the truth, Sandy unearths a dark family secret. Now, Sandy has to find a way to end the curse before it takes away all the people she holds dear.

WHY?
--- I’m not really fond of watching horror movies, because when I’m about to sleep and close my eyes, all I’ve imagined are those creepy scenes in that movie (awoOooo! Scary!) But this movie, I think is very very creepy.. (hahah) no, I mean, It has a very interesting story. It is something unique. It is something that depicts the Filipino culture and traditions. Truly a world-class movie! (clap clap)

It must be fate then, when he once again sees Irene (Toni Gonzaga), his ex-girlfriend from three years ago with whom he had the best memories with. Apollo and Irene were a perfect couple, and were engaged to be married. It all ended at the altar when Apollo had a bout of cold feet and left Irene alone in the aisle.

Now, Irene pretends to have no recollection of Apollo, having acquired “amnesia” shortly after their separation. Apollo sees this as the perfect opportunity to pursue Irene again, and be able to undo all the mistakes he made in the past, by offering Irene the best memories she could ever have.

True love is difficult to resist, they learn. Just when they find themselves ready to commit to each other, the pains from the past catch up with them, challenging them to finally own up to the mistakes made and lies said, and eventually realize what it is to forgive and forget.

8. Jose Rizal (1998)

Synopsis:
Accused of treason, Dr. José Rizal (Cesar Montano) awaits trial and meets with his government-appointed counsel, Luis Taviel de Andrade (Jaime Fabregas).

Upon hearing his life story, Taviel begins to realize that the accused is not only innocent but exhibits in fact all the qualities of an ordinary man. When the mock trial unreels, Taviel is all set to act as the prime advocate for his client as Rizal himself is about to give an earth-moving speech to defend his honor and address his countrymen.

Meanwhile, the Spanish authorities have worked out the vast political machinery to ensure a guilty verdict. A revolution awaits in the wings. Blood is shed when the Katipunan, founded by Andres Bonifacio (Gardo Versoza), attacks the Spaniards.

WHY?
--- I first thought that classical movies are really boring! But this movie is an exception. Though this movie portrays historical events, still, it catches the interest of many people (I’m one of them). Superb quality of production! You will not only enjoy but you will learn as well.
