Die Beautiful Film Trailer Review
What can be said about Die Beautiful official movie trailer? I can finally say that we finally have a decent comedy entry to the Metro Manila Film Festival as for the rest of us, the annual MMFF has been a thriving place for the repetitive dumb and loud humor, while still considered humor it is not really revolutionizing the genre or influencing people. Heck, most of the MMFF comedy entries of the past have their morals put to question with the rest of the content of these "films" or the "morals" are shove down everyone's throats with little to no subtlety. What the Die Beautiful trailer can show us that there can be a generic loud gay comedy stereotype but with an actual heart, character and plot progression, and an understanding on the life of a minority group in our generally "conservative" Filipino society.
It is quite refreshing to see a Metro Manila Film Festival that has no Vice Ganda and Vic Sotto film in the comedy genre. This 42nd Metro Manila Film Festival we have "Die Beautiful" mainly starring Paolo Ballesteros and "Ang Babae sa Septic Tank 2: #ForeverIsNotEnough" with Eugne Domingo as replacement which for a majority of film critiques is a breathe of fresh air. Change has not only come to the country with its new President, but for the annual film festival as well. Let us just see if the people behind the MMFF can keep their strict and higher requirements for passing entries, or if Vic Sotto and Vice Ganda will make entries in accordance to that stricter rules, and for once in their comedic careers would make a funny yet revolutionary or thought provoking comedies. One thing is for sure, Die Beautiful is one entry wherein I can say confidently say will restore the faith back to the Metro Manila Film Festival.
