Sure, there are thousands of Hollywood romantic movies that we can watch this Valentine’s season. You’re probably enumerating some in your head right now as you read this. But do we really have to rely on Western love stories to satisfy our hopeless romantic hearts? To make us believe that love is possible? To convince us that fairy tales do come true?
Us, Filipinos, are so obsessed with romance. Did you ever wonder why love teams in showbiz are very successful? Exactly. Because we love the shipping game, we’re addicted to the feeling of kilig, we enjoy seeing our favorite actress with a cute leading man, and we feel fulfilled every time our favorite love team becomes a real-life couple.
I’ve learned a lot over the course of our euro trip. Cliche things like happiness is always a choice, which is absolutely true. Its never about forcing yourself to be happy (especially if its for the sake of others) but not letting sadness dominate. So one of my new years resolution would definitely be to choose happiness, because i deserve to be happy and so does everyone else.
Many local romantic films are equally astounding as the foreign ones. There are countless of renowned local filmmakers who are experts in producing heart-fluttering romantic movies like Cathy Garcia-Molina who directed one of the most iconic hugot movies One More Chance starring John Lloyd Cruz (Popoy) and Bea Alonzo (Basha). We also have well-respected directors like Rory Quintos, Jose Javier Reyes, Bb. Joyce Bernal, Olivia Lamasan, and the roll call goes on.
Just in case you’re overwhelmed with the number of romantic comedy/drama movies to watch this month of love, we listed some of the most remarkable ones from 2013 starring new wave of love teams you’re surely crazy about.
