Multi-awarded lighting designer John Batalla conceptualized the outdoor light show with sound design by Jethro Joaquin. “We will interpret the three transcendentals of Truth, Goodness and Beauty paired with a soundscape of indigenous Filipino instruments, snippets of folk music and quintessential Filipino sound bites or quotable quotes from the past,” Batalla said. Batalla partnered with Joaquin to curate the soundscape or soundtrack for the show. SINAG 2022 is produced by the CCP Production Design and Technical Services Division.  The event will create a vibrant and effervescent atmosphere on the façade and its environs, the CCP PDTSD said.

The fun love in Momol Nights. Movie Review

Romantic Movie in Filipino setting takes another leap in Momol Nights, an iWant movie original streaming free online. The movie stars promising actress Kim Molina and Kit Thompson under the direction of Benedict Mique, Jr.

Having Molina in the cast you can expect a great comedy acting, from stage to TV series to Movies, Molina proves she can handle well in delivering all needed for a character that need to be seen and felt by the audience. And that’s the very reason I watch Momol nights, because that’s how I adore this promising actress that I’ve seen first in a theater production of “Kung Paano Ako Naging Leading lady.”

In Momol Nights which is acronym for Make out, Make Out Lang style of dating that usually involve lust or sex and nothing else, the movie is centered on Molina’s to die for searching for a man of her dreams, and achieving that is taking an option of One Night Stand only to give in her desire of finding Mr. Right. However, it was the other way around as she expects more than just a sex with benefits relationship with the character of Kit Thompson, a budding poster graphic artist who don’t believe in having someone or settling in as a family.

The script is great, the supporting cast specially the friends of Kim provides the right dose of truthful and hurtful motivations for a friend, obviously it is millennial attack in giving us the real scenarios of dating and getting laid. The opening scene that started in travelling the scene from above to the resto dialogues is happening right at its place, that is so magical and brilliant for me to consider watching this film.

Since its tackle’s relationship in bed, the many love scenes presentation is all done in clean and wholesome maybe in developing the story, although there are scenes and dialogues that I find unnecessary between the two main characters, like the long chit chat they had before the first Momol happen, for me it lose the objective of what will happen next, which is the bed scene.

I love the mystery on Thompson’s acting, he gives no hint or clue whether he was into her or just playing around like the most guys we know in this type of situation, his subtle and not hard to chew acting is just simple and fit him all throughout the movie.

Molina as expected didn’t disappoint us, she is so good in comedy timing with all the face expression, the finale part where Thompson admit his real feeling is such a joy to see, you could feel through her crying eyes how she wants that kind of moment.

Momol Nights maybe did portray our Filipina in a wrong light as easy to gets or something, but that’s not the issue since as realistic as could be, we know it’s happening.

Yes, recommended for watching using your iWant app, I assure you its really fun and a lot of laughs happen that I forgot to count on. You can watch Momol Nights for free via streaming only In iWant.

Nice review.
Fo me it is educational( and advisable to be viewed by 18+ years old) in a way that i've learned so many things such as the acronyms and its meaning (which majority is totally unknown to me). I like also some of the quotes about sex, mistakes to name some.

You are also right about the lead actors (i've never thought that Kim was that SEXY!!!), they did a great job. the script, the story the supporting roles wow. i find those things in only few pinoy movies.

How i wish that the movie was played in cinemas.
