  1. The Cinemalaya Film Festival (August 5 to 13)

It's that time of the year again when established and up-and-coming creatives get to tell stories that we rarely see in mainstream cinema. This year’s interesting characters include a boy reconnecting with his father through boxing (Kiko Boksingero), a mother who in desperate times turns to folklore stories (Ang Pamilyang Hindi Lumuluha), and a woman who goes missing in a small town (Nabubulok starring Jameson Blake and JC Santos). Watch all the trailers and check out the screening schedule here

  1. Baby Driver (now showing)

The Ansel Elgort movie that everyone's talking about has finally made it to our shores! Here, he plays a getaway driver with exceptional skills and even better taste in music. It's one heck of a ride, and you can read more about it here and here.

 

  1. 100 Tula Para Kay Stella (August 16)

Like you need another reason to fall for JC Santos—here he plays a guy with a stutter who turns to poetry for comfort and structure, and finds a muse (Bella Padilla) who makes the words flow like never before.

  1. Ang Manananggal sa Unit 23B (August 16)

When two people start dating/hanging out/whatever it's called these days, they're bound to discover each other's secrets. Sometimes these secrets are embarrassing but overall harmless, other times they're pretty insane—like finding out the girl is actually a manananggal, who can split her body in half so that the top half can fly away to hunt for food, a.k.a. babies still in the womb. As far as unconventional love stories go, this one's right up there!

  1. The Emoji Movie (August 23)

Emojis have one job, and when they don't express the proper emotion when called upon, it can spell trouble for the whole city of Textopolis, home to all emojis. The hilarious movie features the voices of T.J. Miller (a.k.a. Deadpool's BFF), James Corden (the genius behind carpool karaoke), and Ilana Glazer (one half of Broad City's winning pair).

  1. The House (August 23)

The struggle to pay for college is very real, which is why two parents actually carry out their insane plan to turn their basement into an illegal casino in the hopes of earning enough cash for their daughter's tuition fee. You just know it's going to get out of hand, but with Amy Poehler and Will Ferrell leading the way, you also know it’s going to be a lot of fun.

  1. Annabelle: Creation (August 23)

Three years after Annabelle comes a new chapter in this creepy saga. This time, the doll finds new "playmates" in the form of the nun and six orphans that her maker welcomes to their home.

  1. The Dark Tower (August 30)

"There are other worlds than these," Stephen King famously wrote in his best-selling novels, and now these worlds are coming to the big screen, with Idris Elba as The Gunslinger and Matthew McConaughey as the Man in Black.

  1. Love You to the Stars and Back (August 30)

Written and directed by Antoinette Jadaone (Till I Met You, On the Wings of Love, That Thing Called Tadhana), this movie brings JoshLia back to the big screen. Joshua Garcia plays Caloy, a guy who falls for Mika, played by Julia Barretto, a girl who believes in extraterrestrial beings.

To the Person Who Does Not Know Any 1D Song

By: CJ Reyno

Never in my wildest dream I imagined to meet someone who does not know a single One Direction song or who does not even know, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, Liam Payne, Niall Horan, and err… Zayn Malik. How did you spend your teenagehood without listening to their songs? The disrespect to my #StyPayHorLikSon. My initial reaction, Vas Happenin’?

Since I was 12 years old, that was way back on 2012, One Direction songs have been my official life soundtrip, my go-to songs whenever I feel happy, sad, mad, excited, and etch. I can still remember how people went crazy just to attend their concert here in the Philippines. I must admit, I was one of those. LOL. The group was also dubbed as, “The Biggest Boyband in the World”. They were an era. You really left me in awe when you told me that you do not know a single One Direction song. Their songs are gold. But I was a little hopeful when a new messaged popped up on our conversation, “Hey I know one, Make You Beautiful”.

You do not know how my world collapsed after reading your message. I would like to say that I appreciate the effort, thanks, but they do not have a song entitled, Make You Beautiful, because it is, What Makes You Beautiful. I tried to explain but you said that they are just the same. (Tip: Never fight with a Directioner when it comes to this because we will not let our guards down). No! They are not the same. How can you make this big mistake? LOL. What Makes You Beautiful is One Direction’s debut song. Almost everyone knows this, “you’re insecure, don’t know what for,” ring a bell? The music video of this surpassed 1 billion views on Youtube. On my 21 years of existence, you are the very first person who told me this “I-Thought-It-Was-A-Joke-But-You-Are-Serious” statement.

As a persuasive fangirl, I thought to myself that I should make you appreciate their music, that you should know that it is What Makes You Beautiful, not Make You Beautiful. The group may be in hiatus but their music is and will always remain superior. You are hard-headed lad. We even when to the point where you challenged me to treat so I can make you watch their music video. Am I even surprised that I agreed to this? HAHA. I feel like an agent trying to persuade her customer to buy a property on our company. You do not know how happy I was when you sent me your video listening to What Makes You Beautiful. I felt like I successfully closed a deal with my client. Not to exaggerate but I really jumped because of happiness after watching your video. It was the first message I checked that morning. Thank you for your effort, so much appreciated. Funny how our conversation starts with your innocence on One Direction until it goes deeper and last longer. Up All Nigh conversations which turned to almost Midnight Memories. Ironic how a Directioner had developed an admiration on someone who dislikes her favorite boys? Just like One Direction’s song, Change My Mind, “Never felt like this before. Are we friends or are we more?” I guess, like Liam’s line on Love You Goodbye, “It's inevitable everything that's good comes to an end. It's impossible to know if after this we can still be friends.”

I was happy that I made you listen to One Direction. At least I made you appreciate and made you aware that there is a song called, What Makes You Beautiful, not Make You Beautiful. I am happy that you already found your Girl Almighty. Wish me luck on finding my Summer Love. xoxo, Your Directioner friend
