#MoviesPH in 2015, Part 6: The Worst Films

Nicholas Cage Pay The Ghost

PAY THE GHOST (Uli Edel). Nicholas Cage has been doing films that are questionable recently. Questionable as to why he accepted doing it because of its quality. Pay The Ghost is awkwardly funny for a horror-mystery. And Nicholas Cage’s acting doesn’t help in making things better. Is it just me or he really intends to make bad movies?

Return to Sender

RETURN TO SENDER (Fouad Mikati). Starring Rosamund Pike, fresh from her infamous role in David Fincher’s Gone Girl, Return to Sender wants to duplicate the success through another mystery-thriller. But it fails so bad that it ends up confusing, not knowing if it was actually a romantic film or a mystery-thriller. It’s still a delight to see Pike in a film even though it was that bad.

Angela Markado 14

ANGELA MARKADO (Carlo J. Caparas). It’s just bad. Nothing can ever make you feel good about watching the film. Andi Eigenmann probably feels like VIVA is torturing her for giving her the worst films this year. Angela Markado feels like a joke, a serious crime-thriller that wants to be sort of a superhero movie. It’s a mix of everything bad in filmmaking: no focus, no creativity and even bad acting.

luke bracey and edgar ramirez in POINT BREAK

POINT BREAK (Ericson Core). What’s supposed to be an edge-of-your-seat action film but will only make you bored for the rest of its runtime. Point Break is an unnecessary remake, Hollywood probably has some problems with original films but remaking a film and turn it in to a sleep-inducing experience isn’t the best way to do so.

Our rating: 1 out of 5 stars


PARANORMAL ACTIVITY: THE GHOST DIMENSION (Gregory Plotkin). The last installment of the once headliner horror film because of its innovative treatment. The Ghost Dimension is not scary, it uses obvious jumps scars that doesn’t work. For the first time in the series, they are actually creating the ghost or at least the creature menacing all along but it doesn’t look scary at all. The visual effects are kind of impressive but not to the film’s advantage of being scary.

Our rating: 1 out of 5 stars.

Halik sa Hangin

HALIK SA HANGIN (Emmanuel Quindo Palo). Not knowing the difference between a ghost and a corpse is the least of the problems of Halik sa Hangin. The film wants to be a crossover between Twilight and Warm Bodies. Knowing that the you-and-me-against-the-world type of romance in a monster and human love affair works but the film badly uses it. It’s a SMH moment from start to finish, maybe KMN at times.

Our rating: 1 out of 5 stars

your Place or Mine

YOUR PLACE OR MINE (Joel Lamangan). Another Andi Eigenmann film directed by Joel Lamangan. It’s neither romantic nor comedic, it just puts together awkwardly set-up stories from characters that only care for the superficial things.

Our rating: 1 out of 5 stars

Tragic Theater

TRAGIC THEATER (Tikoy Aguiluz). Being the first Filipino film of 2015 and with an interesting trailer, Tragic Theater was anticipated before its release. Sadly, the film was hardly scary and turned out to be funny in a bad way. Andi Eigenmann needs to sue someone for giving her the worst movies of 2015.

Our rating: 1 out of 5 stars

Breaking Through 03

BREAKING THROUGH (John Swetnam). Forgettable. Dance movies tend to be made because of insane dance number ideas but Breaking Through didn’t bring that on the table. It’s just another clichéd hopeful who wants to be a star and forgets about the ones she left behind. If you haven’t seen it, there’s no reason to.

Our rating: 1 out of 5 stars

The Final Girl

THE FINAL GIRL (Tyler Shields). When the trailer came out, almost everyone got its attention. The Final Girl looks stylishly done and the plot feels it’s about to give you the thrills and suspense its trailer is hinting about. But the story turned out to be ridiculously paper thin with stupid characters and setting that doesn’t work.
