I’m a sucker for good Pinoy movies, the ones that are well-thought of, well-executed, and have ensemble cast. Most Star Cinema movies I have watched before belong to this class. While I don’t like it that most, if not all, of their films end on a happy note (the happily-ever-after kind), I still watch them because of three things: good story, intriguing trailer and smart pairing of lead characters.
I have recently watched their latest offering, In the Name of Love. It is starred by Aga Muchlach, Angel Locsin and Jake Cuenca. Intriguing trailer aside, I watched this film because I heard it took them one year to finish the movie. I thought it meant something good. Apparently, I was right. The movie was good and effective in unleashing a thousand emotions from the viewers (yours truly included). To say that I got teary-eyed several times is an understatement. I actually cried!
