Iskul Bukol 20 Years After – The return of the Escalera Brothers is here. The wacky combination of Tito, Vic and Joey rocks the cinemas this year 2008 with probably the biggest bang in their trio after 20 years of silence of the Iskul Bukol sitcom in the early 80’s. Today is the time they try to give more laughter to the people from the Philippines with this entry to the MMFF in the first ever sequel to the long lost Iskul Bukol in Wanbol University of the dreaded wise men from Wanbol University.

Script is written by Roy Iglesias and directed by Mark Meily. This movie is somewhat about the seige of Baler in the war set-up era where a love story is written while the seige of Baler Quezon is going on. An epic love story under the war besieged Baler, Quezon in the early Spanish Era. WATCH THE VIDEO HERE.
One Night Only – A sexy wacky combination of 5 beautiful girls in Philippines showbiz with different sexy stories to tell how they all ended up in one motel at the same time and the same day for a One Night Only stance.

Shake Rattle and Roll X – The Classic Trilogy horror film from the early 90’s (as far as I can remember). This movie offer from Regal Films, directed by Mike Tuvierra and Topel Lee is a trilogy of horrors in 3 parts and episodes. Dividing the horrors this Christmas story turned horror into 3 to give more fun and thrill in cost-effective way by rendering as good as 3 movies rolled in one. Stars include some of the brightest stars of Regal teeners like Kim Chiu, Gerald Anderson, Erich Gonzales, Roxan Guinoo and more.WATCH THE VIDEO HERE.
Magkaibigan – Under Maverick Films with last year’s best actor Jinngoy Estrada producing and starring in the movie. It is actually a movie tribute for a best friend who passed away, Rudy Fernandez this year.
Dayo ( a great animated movie you must see ) – Under Cutting Edge, this is the first animated movie accepted to take part in the MMFF 2008 series of awarding held each year and a history in the making. This animated movie is directed by Robert Quilao with Artemio Abad and Eric Cabahug. I am telling you this is something that Filipinos can be really really proud of because of the quite unique collaboration done here as you see one of the best if not the best animated movie ever done in the Philippines since Panday. The animation is indeed the best among what I have seen done in the Philippines and proudly Filipino. I personally salute this effort to render such quality so that investors for Philippine animation will see that it is possible with some of the best an animation artists in the world proven to have come from the Philippines and as seen in this movie.
