I'm floored! I saw the list and if I were to choose, Ded na si Lolo will be my last choice. After learning from you that it's our entry to Oscar's, dapat ko talaga syang panoorin. Hindi ko alam na maganda pala sya. Gonna watch it and see if it really deserves the honor.

I'm saddened that Jay or Baler didn't make it. But who knows? Maybe Ded will be a surprise to us!

napanood ko ang DED NA SI LOLO, okey naman sya pero i didnt expect na magiging entry ito ng Pinas sa Oscar. Pero who knows baka mataypan ito ng mga foreign jurors. :D

Moks - At least nakapagsimula na tayo last year. Sana na nga magkaroon man lang tayo ng slot sa Oscar.

Nebz - Sa tailer pa lang ay mukhang maganda. I am sure na deserving siguro. di ako makadownload nyan. kaya wala ako masabi sa mga movies na nagsipaglahok.

Vonfire- Sana makinga nila yung master piece ng Pinoy.

Sardonyx - Not sure kung meron na, but for sure may pirated na hehehe.

Thanks guys for your comment.

It was a good hilarious movie, but not my personal choice for an Oscar. I give more points on Baler, Jay and 100.

I wonder why Serbis was not included in the list for consideration?

But accdg to news Ded na si Lola was a hit when it was shown here. Sana nga manalo!

Life Moto said...

Life Moto said...

KAblogie - it's really a nice movie. napanood ko kagabi. it's a kind of typical Filipino tradition.

i've seen this movie ang galing ng mga actors...i'm positive mananalo ito ng award sa oscar,berlin,golden globe at lahat ng intrnational awards...this is ver "filipino" ang galing ng concept ng director...for the actors naman, i like Ms.MANILYN REYNES and R.PAULATE...ang galing ng mga timing nila in comedy and in drama...sana nga dumami pa ang mga quality film like this...napanod ko sya sm north grabe puno at sigawan sa scene ni roderick and manilyn...galing

Life Moto said...

aNOnymous - agree ako dyan. ang ganda talga ng concept ng movie. simple and filipinong filipno ang story.

Nagkamali sila. I don't think "Dead Na Si Lolo" will be a hit with foreign audiences/AA voters. First, Brillante Mendoza already has significant buzz and momentum compared to "Dead..". Mendoza's films have been winning and getting raves from foreign jurors/ festival goers.

In addition, "Dead..." might come off as too kitschy not familiar with Filipino film/ culture. I can't explain further, but the feel of typical Filipino film is different. Notice how some Fil-Ams have a hard time connecting with mainstream Filipino films?

Life Moto said...

I agree with you about Brilllante's reputation. Minsan sinabi ng isang komentaryo na may touch ito ng Filipino tradition kaya siguro maspinili and Ded na si Lolo compare to other films.

If you watch the movie Slumdog Millionaire ng India. Magtataka ka kung bakit marami sila pinanalo sa Oscar. Let us hope for the best of Ded na si LOlo.

BTW thanks for your comment. hope to see you around.
