Movie Review: A Second Chance

Who has gone MIA again?
Anyway, let's go on to my first movie review here on my blog.  And since this is a Tagalog movie, I'll probably end up writing in Tagalog. 
The A Second Chance movie is the sequel to the movie One More Chance shown 8 years ago. Grabe, I still remember how hard it was for me to hold back my tears when we were in the cinema. I watched it with my husband, who was then my ex (we broke up early that year) and sobra akong nakarelate. Pero, I see myself more in Popoy.
I believe in 2nd chances, kaya sobrang patok sakin ang movie. I think if aside from the fact that you love that person, and you think he or she is worthy of another chance then by all means, give him/her that chance. Kahit maraming chances pa.
Now about this movie. Honestly, I didn't like it that much.  I had high expectations and I actually thought mas mapapaiyak ako ng movie. It didn't. I even ended up laughing on one of the scenes where JLC went home drunk after a session with his friend and ended up sounding like Budoy (a telenovela starred by Gerald Anderson).  I think that was the scene that my friend referred to as ang OA ni JLC. For me it wasn't really OA, di ko lang type how he delivered the lines.  JLC fans, please don't hate me.
Like the first movie, naka-relate din naman ako sa story. Sobrang feel ko yung Popoy would resort to being grumpy and detached para lang maitago ang totoo kay Basha.  I can so relate yung kahit anong gawin ni Basha, mali.  At grabe sakit sa puso when Popoy said na sana hindi na lang sila nagkabalikan. Sobrang aray yun ha.  Trust me, ang sakit sakit yung pagsisihan na binalikan ka pa.  Sniff.  Can relate din ako when they decided to stay together pero they had a hard time going back to how they were used to be. Magkasama nga sila pero ang cold naman nila sa isa't isa. (Aray ko!)  Sakin kasi if two people decide to stay together and work out the relationship, they should really try their best and not let anger, hate or disgust get in their way. Mashado mahirap for Popoy yung iparamdam ni Basha na yes magkasama tayo pero hindi na tulad ng dati. (Aray Ko ulit)
They sort of separated when Basha went back to her family and Popoy decided to grab the work opportunity in London. But in the end, they still got back together. Doon ako medyo naiyak when they were both reminiscing their wedding day and their vows.   Kasi ganon naman, if you really love each other, you don't give up. It's gonna be hard picking up the broken pieces but as long as you still love each other, pagtutulungan nyo. Kahit gaano pa kahirap. I am not saying you hold on to your promises just because you are married.  What I am saying is that as long as there is love, then work things out.  But of course, it's different pag wala na ang Love. 
Overall, I liked the movie but not that much.  Mas gusto ko pa din ang unang movie.  Please don't hate me. Hehehe. Anyways, people say that if may asawa ka makakarelate ka sa movie and that's true. And pag single ka, matatakot ka daw mag-asawa. Hahaha, no naman.  People have different stories.  Sa mag-asawa, dapat laging open communication and treat each other as a partner.  Kelangan magtulungan, lagi mag-uusap and no matter how busy life can be, always remember to have time to rediscover each other. 
Wish ko lang, love story ko ganito din maging ending. 
But right now, I highly doubt it.

Hi Brigitte! So glad to read from you again. I missed your blogs. I watched those movies too with my husband. Yung 1st was when me & my husband were going thru a difficult time in our life, we almost separated even with 4 kids, actually we did. But I thank God that we were able to hurdle the most difficult time in our life and we are now back together and have a stronger marriage now. And so, we went out and watched "A Second Chance" and we cried both esp him, since what we went through was so much harder than what characters did. Life is beautiful and marriage is truly a commitment no matter what has happened or how hurt or broken you both are. I can now say that "True love begins when you have fallen out of love" quote from Bo Sanchez. Welcome back. :)

Watched this movie with verrrryyyy low expectation, kaya medyo natuwa ako na it's not that bad. hehe
Actually, nasabi ko sa friend ko na kaya ayoko mag asawa kasi may mga issue sila (referring to the scene na sinabi ni Popoy na sana hindi na sila nagkabalikan.. hehe)
nakikita ko sarili ko kay Bew Saw! Nega sa marriage.. lol
