Nakakaloka ang experience namin kanina sa Trinoma. 9:30AM nasa Trinoma na kami kaya sa fudcourt muna kami tumambay dahil sarado pa ang mall. Pag strike ng 10AM akyat na kami sa mall nagulat kami ang haba na kaagad ng pila.. Pila kaagad 2 popsters habang paparating iba pa namin kasama. Halos paliparin na ang taxi dahil sabi namin super haba na ng pila. Nung nag flash sa screen kung anong availables for ITAMAAW na pa :yikes: kami dahil halos 2 cinema puno na kaagad. Ang dami na pala nagpa reserve online. Mga past 10am palang yun. Tinitingnan namin pila parang hindi na talaga kami aabot sa first screening kaya tinawagan namin ibang popsters na nasa SM North. 11AM ang showing sa Trinoma 11:30AM naman sa SM North. Nung sinabi sa amin na wala naman daw seat assignment dun at pumipila na sila at malapit na sa ticket booth, nag decide kami na sa SM North nalang kami mag first screening. Literal po talaga na nagtakbuhan kaming 10 papuntang SM North..hahahaaha...Para kaming mga pasahero sa eroplano na takot maiwan sa flight. Pagdating dun ang haba na din ng pila. Pero nung nakabili na kami ng tickets for the first screening sobrang masaya na kami at super excited na.

Nung lumabas na yung logo ng starcinema ang popsters nagsigawan na..kakaloka..Nung nag start na ang movie...wala kaming ginawa kundi humagalpak ng tawa, iyak , kinilig at super natuwa nung makita mga itsura namin sa movie. ANG GANDA GANDA GANDA NG MOVIE. THIS IS THE BEST AMONG THE 3 movies of Laida and Miggy's love story/journey.

SARAH's acting...as in WOW NA WOW... worship worship worship :astig: . Sobrang nag shine si Sarah dito. Si john lloyd brought drama in this movie and i so love Zoila and friends. nakakaloka mga punchline nila. bentang benta. And the wedding scene...haaay...ang ganda lang ni Sarah at ang pogi ni Loydie. Basta ang galing galing lang talaga.

Congratulations to SARAH, JOHN LLOYD, DIREK CATHY , Ms CARMI RAYMUNDO and the rest of the staff and crew. The best team taaga. :cheer: :cheer:

Sidenote: Finally! I’m back to reviewing. Yay! Posted Image
Four years after we last witnessed the dream love story between Miggy Montenegro and Laida Magtalas in You Changed My Life, Cathy Garcia-Molina closes the whole story, this time with the third installment of the prominent fairy tale story via It Takes A Man and a Woman (which is already killing the box office after only one day of release).
In this story, we see couple Miggy (John Lloyd Cruz) and Laida (Sarah Geronimo) go separate ways, as each recovers from their break up two years ago. Miggy is still a disappointment to his family’s business reputation, while Laida, now with an accent and a better fashion sense (though still donning a wig), moved to work in New York. A special assignment that involved the two of them stands as a test on whether they’ve finally moved on or if they’re still stuck with their relationship from the past.
Well, let’s get this one out of the way: I’m a big fan of the Miggy-Laida pairing. So I do think that the moment I entered the cinemas, I’ve already expected that I’ll like it. But it was exactly what I was looking for. The first few minutes of the film set up the “relationship over” part between the two of them, but when the Laida Magtalas version 2.0 started to speak, I don’t think that you can still resist to not smile and laugh all throughout. As a matter of fact, I think that’s what the film’s biggest asset is, despite Sarah and John Lloyd’s antics in it, the whole movie has this sense of familiarity that is easy to warm up to. It stayed in its comfort zone, and that definitely worked for the best. I particularly love all the mentions and tribute to the first two movies. By now, you already probably know that director Cathy Garcia Molina has mastered what it takes to bring out the kilig and sweetness in the scenes in her movies, and the movie is another testament of that. They just know when to push the buttons and how to make the audience laugh, cry, and say “aww.”
If there are things that I’m not highly keen about the film, it’s probably the long screen time. The movie clocks in at a few minutes post two hours. There were also too much contrived scenes in it (particularly the one at the near end of the film) when you know that it really has zero chance of happening in real life. But of course, I’d still give in. It was cheesy, contrived, and forced, but I’d be damned if I’ll deny that I wasn’t smiling throughout. The pairing of John Lloyd and Sarah knows how to work this thing off, and their sweetness was thisclose in making me give them a free pass.
Another thing I liked is the ensemble nature of the movie. The characters of Matet de Leon, Joross Gamboa, and Gio Alvarez were more in demand here than the two previous movies, and the chemistry among the group is just on an all time high that it was just fun to watch them interact on screen. Isabelle Daza was in a very thankless and limited role, so she was decent to say the most, but there was one scene when she “competed” with Laida that made the whole theater laugh. Then again, I don’t think I can let this review pass without reiterating (time and again) how John Lloyd and Sarah’s impeccable chemistry is the heart and soul of this film. They really just know how to make this work.
If this is the really the ending to the trilogy, then I’d say it ended on a really high note. The pairing of Laida and Miggy is definitely in for the books and deservedly so. It Takes A Man and a Woman is one of those films that highly succeeded in what it wanted to portray, bringing in the smiles, the tears, and the kilig, while also serving the perfect closure to both their love story and the film installment itself.
Grade: 3.5/5

one more review:

http://orangemagazin...n-movie-review/

just to quote a few sentences...

"If I’m going to predict the faith of “It Takes A Man and A Woman“, I hope it becomes the #1 Pinoy film of all time. I recommend this film and I’m planning to watch it again on its 2nd day of screening. It do takes to have John Lloyd Cruz and Sarah Geronimo to make a romantic-comedy movie you will never forget. :-)"

hello..hello!!:D just wanna share my take on ITAMAAW

Napanod ko kahapon ITAMAAW on it's first screening i really prefer this hour since onte lang mga nanonood plus the fact na it's a black saturday. half na ata ng movie nung pumasok ako and wow..i tot wala nako mauupuan nearly full na pala sa loob. by the time the movie ended puno na. midway sa 2nd screening puno na talaga there were people standing na sa gilid, seating sa middle aisles at sa likod..pag labas ko haba na ng pila..hehe kaka proud lang Posted Image. about sa movie naman..grabe lang..ang ganda talaga as in and i agree this is best in the series and tama si direct CGM its really a blessing in disguise na hindi siya natuloy back then, the movie would not have been as good as it is kung nagawa siya dati..roller coaster emotions ka talaga dito wahaha..ang galing-galing ni Sarah talaga dito, best SG movie so far level up talaga siya dito in all aspect..ang ganda ng register ni sarah on the big screen sarap titigan eh! well jlc is jlc yun na un Posted Imagevery solid ang story telling, no dull moments, ang galing din ng support cast..zoila and friends hehe.."laru tayo..taguan..taguan ng feelings" and may peyborit "big bird" wahaha..and if i'm not mistaken this is probably the installment where sarah and lloydie had the most number of scenes together, ycml parang bilang lang..bilang separated characters nila..though this is a rom-com but i'm glad hindi siya totally nag focus doon, the movie really had depth and substance, it really showed the painful journey of the protagonists and how they got back together..and oh yes sige na nga i'll admit na..i shed some tears din in three of the scenes..can't help it eh!!Posted Image i also like the fact that the movie paid homage to the 1st two movies, while it's not perfect and like any other movies it has flaws but its forgivable naman meron kasing isang scene na for me ang lakas maka 80's-90's romantic flick eh wahaha Posted Image but with the solid story and impeccable performance of the actors you'll hardly take notice. it's a 2 hour movie pero feeling mo bitin parin..solution?!! ulit-ulitin na lang!!woohhooo!!Posted Image as for my fave scenes..dami haha..but i really like that wedding scene..specially while Sarah was walking down the aisle..she's really beautiful in that gown..hayyy!! she's just the perfect bride!Posted ImagePosted Image ok.yun lang po!!Posted ImagePosted Image

Nanood kami sa Edsa Shangrila kanina at talagang puno lahat ng seats. Nung around 5PM kami nagpa reserve mga 30 seats nalang available at 630PM pa ang screening. Since pang 4 na namin mapanood akala ko di na ako tatawa...kakaloka parang first time ko pa din dahil tawa pa din ako ng tawa. Kakatuwa reaction ng mga nanood. Lakas nila tumawa at talagang tinapos nila hanggang matapos ang bloopers bago sila tumayo. May naririnig ako na gusto nila ulitin at ganda daw ng mga bitaw ng punchlines. kaka proud lang talaga.

Before kami ng Edsa Shangrila nag SM megamall ulit kami. Dahil medyo late dumating yung iba pag pasok namin puno na sa taas pati sa baba. Nagpaalam kami na kahit sa hagdanan nalang sa taas kami uupo pero di pumayag kaya sa lapag nalang kami umupo sa baba. Ang ingay pa din namin..hahahaha..parang first time pa din. Parang nanood lang kami ng DVD sa sala ang peg namin dun na nakaupo lang sa sahig. Kakatuwa.

Same numbers of cinema ang Gi Joe and ITAMAAW pero mas mahaba ang pila sa ITAMAAW at punong puno talaga.

CONGRATULATIONS TO THE WHOLE TEAM!!! ANG GALING GALING!!!
