Filipino cinema at its finest…
I hadn’t heard about the 2017 Filipino movie “Love You to the Stars and Back” before now in 2022, as I happened to stumble upon it by random chance. And seeing the cover, I thought it was just another run-of-the-mill romantic comedy that The Philippine cinema tends to spew out by the dozens. However, as I hadn’t already seen the movie, of course I opted to give it a chance.
Writer and director Antoinette Jadaone really surprised me with this movie. Sure, the movie starts out like any other generic romantic comedy, but then the storyline starts to develop and this movie went from being just mediocre to downright amazing in a short time. I was so amazed with the storyline concocted and brought to the screen by Antoinette Jadaone, it is such a display of creative talent and a knack for writing something truly heartfelt and emotional.
Now, I am not overly familiar with the Filipino cinema, but have seen a handful or two of movies therefrom, but I have to admit that “Love You to the Stars and Back” is without a doubt the best and most outstanding of movies I have seen come from the Filipino cinema. I am so happy that I opted to sit down and watch “Love You to the Stars and Back”, because it really is a heartfelt story and such a memorable movie.
Needless to say that I am not familiar with the cast ensemble in the movie, given my limited familiarity with the Filipino cinema, but leading actor Joshua Garcia and leading actress Julia Barretto put on such powerhouse performances that it has to be experienced. I was really impressed with their performances on the screen, both together and individually. They really took the well-written script from Antoinette Jadaone and made it their movie.
“Love You to the Stars and Back” is a movie that you simply have to watch. This is such a beautiful movie that it is more than well-worth taking the time and effort to watch. This movie is the type of movie that will get under the skin and stick with you for a long, long time – and I mean that in a positive way, of course.
My rating of “Love You to the Stars and Back” lands on a well-deserved eight out of ten stars.
could’ve been a good movie
Various peculiar movies have been long acceptable, whether it be about zombies, monsters, or even aliens and it was a challenge to make a compelling and convincing film out of such unnatural themes. Philippine cinema has only made a few that is the why I was quite intrigued and excited when Star Cinema made a film as odd as this. I thought it was bold and progressive at the same time as it doesn’t follow a normal routine Filipino movies do. However, the movie disappointed me. For a few reasons, one – the questionable character of Mika and her mother. The film did not show a strong basis to justify their beliefs to supernatural beings. In turn, I did not saw depth to their personalities. They failed to hook me with their eccentricity. Two – the delivery. I cringed the whole time to the upbeat conversation between Caloy and Mika.They look uncontained and importunate together. Perhaps they did it for charm but to me it seems unrealistic to find acquaintances continuously and playfully arguing over the shallowest things. I thought it would be more fitting if instead of disagreeing with one another, they would use the time to explain themselves and discuss their bizarre theories, hence, revealing more about their characters. (I was referring to the carabao-eating-humans part) It’s wasteful for me.
