In the past 34 years, it was only in 1994 that there was no Best Picture winner. It’s also interesting to note that in 2006, Enteng Kabisote 3 won Best Picture award besting the well-made Star Cinema comedy Kasal, Kasali, Kasalo. It’s just one of the most controversial years in the history of the filmfest.

This year, the Best Picture award is being contested by three films: Regal’ Mano Po 6, Star Cinema’s I Love You Goodbye and GMA/Imus Productions’ Ang Panday. But since Mano Po 6 was the only entry which got an “A” rating from the Cinema Evaluation Board for production excellence, then the Sharon Cuneta-starrer is the most likely to win the Best Picture award.

Among the 7 entries this year, which movie do you think will win the MMFF Best Picture?

And among the winning films from 1975 to 2008, which entry do you think was the Best Picture of all time?


‘Ang Panday’ is MMFF’s First Day Topgrosser (UPDATED)

The National Cinema Association of the Philippines named 5 movies figuring well at the box-office on the first day of Metro Manila Film Festival.

The National Cinema Association of the Philippines (NCAP) revealed the ranking of the Top 5 films leading at the box-office race of the 34th Metro Manila Film Festival. In ranking order, these films are:

1. Ang Panday
2. Ang Darling Kong Aswang
3. Shake, Rattle & Roll XI
4. Mano Po 6: A Mother’s Love
5. I Love You, Goodbye

According to reports, Bong Revilla’s Ang Panday is breaking all records in MMFF opening day history. This is good news for GMA Films and Imus Productions as their movie is considered the top-budgeted among the 7 entries.

Nobody, Nobody but Juan is in far sixth and even farther was Wapakman. The Manny Pacquiao movie was not shown in some SM Cinemas yesterday because of technical problems.

Meanwhile, Startalk reported yesterday the official 1st Day MMFF gross. The first, second, third and last positions were similar to the ranking estimates of the NCAP while the 4th to 6th positions were different.

Official 1st Day MMFF Gross:

1. Ang Panday – P16.9M
2. Ang Darling Kong Aswang – P16.7M
3. Shake, Rattle and Roll XI – P16.2M
4. I Love You, Goodbye – P11.7M
