Nora Aunor and Alden Richards alongside Adolfo Alix Jr. LGBT Hit Film “4 Days” – Exclusive at Ayala Malls Cinemas

Love holds no bounds they say, and for people who are part of the LGBT community, your first love is what sometimes define you and what you want in a partner. When things don’t work out, that love is what teaches you lessons in love and life.

Most of us want a love that lasts, a love that will be nourished and cherished, and is what’s in store in Adolfo Alix Jr’s “4 Days” starring Mikoy Morales and Sebastian Castro.

Set inside the spacious and beautiful grounds of the University of the Philippines Diliman, it tells the story of Mark (Mikoy Morales) who goes about in his first day of college inside UP, where he meets his roommate Derek (Sebastian Castro) and as the two go through four years of college together, with every valentine’s day they try to get through their feelings for each other while staying inside the closet.

For those who have had or at least tried relationships from within the closet, this movie is sure to hit you to the bones with feels.

Team Magazine calls “4 Days” a love story that is full of cautionary actions that demand to break free. “There is the irony that what you love needs to be hidden, especially from parents who could take your access to each other away. There is the tragedy of this source of happiness being one you deny in front of your friends, allowing a lover’s doubt to set in.”

“Kinabukasan” to screen alongside “4 Days” – Those who will watch “4 Days” will also get the chance to see “Kinabukasan” a short film that won Best Short Film in the 2015 Gawad Urian, starring Superstar Nora Aunor and Alden Richards, filmed in 2014, it was part of the short film category in the 2014 Cinema One Originals and at the 2015 Hanoi International Film Festival. The story begins with Ernest (Nora Aunor) who after losing his lover, meets Niles, the son of his lover who has come to collect his things. What might seem as a simple encounter gets filled with tension, causing the two to discover what lies underneath the sadness of losing the one you love the most.

An Ayala Malls Cinemas’ exclusive, “4 Days” will open on October 18 in Greenbelt 1 and Trinoma Cinemas.

Movie Review: Up

From Disney and Pixar comes another movie designed for kids but can be watched by the adults as well; and the spelling is easier with just 2 letters – “U” and “P”.

This story is about the adventures of a certain guy, Carl Fredricksen. Just like everyone else, he was dreaming of something impossible. But since this is just computer generated, then there should be no problems with it.

Carl wanted to become an explorer, just like his idol, Charles Muntz. When he was kid, as he was daydreaming, he met a girl by the name of Ellie, which then became Carl’s life long partner. They started out with a promise to place their house at the Paradise Falls somewhere in South America. Due to life’s financial challenges, they were unable to start their journey. After Ellie passed away, it is then up to Carl to make this dream come true.

Surely it was a very difficult task, but Carl, now an old Mr. Fredricksen gave a lot of his effort, and he has used some help from a camp-wilderness kid named Russel, a dog, and a bird. They battled out a freak of science that was Charles Muntz, and re-mapped Mr. Fredricksen’s adventure.

It was indeed a very good movie.

For kids, it worked out as an animated film.

For adults, it worked out as a story of dreams and goals, how to achieve them, using some help along the way, and drawing inspiration from someone. I am sure anyone would really love it.

There was about 5 scenes in which I shed some tears. I left them on the theatre house for the next one to wipe off.
