Nora Aunor’s internationally-acclaimed film, “Thy Womb”, is now an official entry to the 2012 Metro Manila Filmfest.
According to a report on TV Patrol on Friday, Oct. 19, Brillante “Dante” Mendoza’s film about an infertile Badjao midwife (Nora) finally made the cut after Unitel’s “Mga Kuwento Ni Lola Basyang” didn’t meet the production deadline and had to pull out of the filmfest.
In a text message sent to Yahoo! Philippines OMG!, Director Brillante who’s currently in Mumbai for the Indian premiere of “Captive” expressed, “I’m happy and glad that we were given a chance to share our film with the Filipino audience. It’s a nice Christmas gift for all the cast and crew to share a film that we are all proud of.”
Nora and Mendoza are reportedly happy over this unexpected decision of the MMFF executive committee chair Francis Tolentino, who also heads the Metro Manila Development Authority (MMDA).
“Thy Womb” recently got a standing ovation at the Venice Film Festival. Shot in Tawi-Tawi, it also stars Bembol Roco, Lovi Poe and Mercedes Cabral.
Nora has another MMFF film entry, “El Presidente” wit Gov. E.R. Ejercito.
The Adjustment Bureau is a very nice film based on a short story by author Philip K. Dick. It is a science fiction love story about a man so hopelessly in love with a woman that he’s willing to go up against God to have her. A man who just won’t accept what the fates have in store for him. The movie which is somewhat religious raised some questions about life’s destiny. Do we have freewill? Do we control our destiny? Can we truly change the trajectory of our lives or there are unseen forces who can manipulate us?
In the movie, David Norris ( Matt Damon) is a New York politician who loses a bid for the senate seat. On election night he meets a strange woman at the hotel at his party. It’s love at first sight for both of them. She leaves in a rush but he doesn’t get a name or number, or anything. A month later he just so happens to wind up sitting next to her on the bus on his way to work. This time he gets her number and Elise’s (Emily Blunt) name.
Two men strangely start to appear in David’s life. They explain that they work for a bureau that makes corrections when things go slightly wrong. The Bureau informs David that Elise isn’t for him, that a romance between them will dangerously alter some destined path with which they, personally, are clearly unaware. David, however, despite being presented with a rather dissuasive ultimatum, can’t cast Elise aside. However one of the agents from The Adjustment Bureau missed his cue and everything is off plan. From there the film begins and we are taken on an awesome ride.
You will be entertained every moment while watching the movie. It has cool special effects, the sound mix effectively balances the subtle details. It’s a great recommendable film.

The Last Exorcism (2010) Summary:
When he arrives on the rural Louisiana farm of Louis Sweetzer, the Reverend Cotton Marcus expects to perform just another routine “exorcism” on a disturbed religious fanatic. An earnest fundamentalist, Sweetzer has contacted the charismatic preacher as a last resort, certain his teenage daughter Nell is possessed by a demon who must be exorcized before their terrifying ordeal ends in unimaginable tragedy. Buckling under the weight of his conscience after years of parting desperate believers with their money, Cotton and his crew plan to film a confessionary documentary of this, his last exorcism. But upon arriving at the already blood drenched family farm, it is soon clear that nothing could have prepared him for the true evil he encounters there. Now, too late to turn back, Reverend Marcus’ own beliefs are shaken to the core when he and his crew must find a way to save Nell – and themselves – before it is too late.
