Using Blogging to your Fangirl Level

Kmuse & Clkytta carry on their foray into reviewing Filipino films with regards to next pick She’s Dating the Gangster. Come hear their thoughts about precious OTPs (One real Pairings) & unanticipated plot twists.


Athena Dizon plays a trick on campus heartthrob and bad kid, gangster, Kenji de los Reyes.

that leads to an arrangement to imagine become enthusiasts to make Kenji’s ex-girlfriend jealous. Soon they end up dropping for every other while life attempts to tear them aside.

Daniel Padilla – Kenji/Kenneth

Kathryn Bernardo – Athena/Kelay




KMUSE: once we are talking about Cinematography i believe the character should be discussed by us’s styling instead. There actually hasn’t been a lot to express in regards to the directing since all of the programs are standard rom-com recording. Nevertheless the clothes and hairstyles are often unique.

KMUSE: there is an overwhelming level of late 80’s early 90’s styles all meshed together in this film. So when we say overwhelming, we old asian ladies literally suggest overwhelming. My eyes didn’t know very well what to spotlight. Regardless of the bright clothing, Kathryn & Daniel’s chemistry shines through.

CLKYTTA: okay, I became a young adult into the 90s and I also don’t remember half these appearance. I want to provide a raise your voice to Athena’s makeover locks though, I’d great deal of buddies with this cut. I experienced a time that is really hard the train wreck of clothing alternatives though, it had been pretty apparent that somebody who wasn’t a teenager when you look at the 90s picked the costumes.

The Plot:

KMUSE: I became therefore conflicted. Anytime our OTP (both the current and previous variations) arrived on display I happened to be completely enthralled.

those two can perform no wrong with regards to adorable intimate hijinks. However the real plot associated with film crashed back in focus if they are not being all couplish and I also had not been overly pleased. I happened to be maybe not a fan associated with entire illness plot twist that is tragic. As well as, the ex girl infection aspect pissed me down much more. If only that when they needed to split it was for a much better reason than Kenji’s initial gf having cancer tumors and wanting him back again to be an emotional help. Really really lame.

CLKYTTA: we detested the plot. Both of these (few through the past) took noble idiocy to a complete brand new degree. I understand a drama requires an angst that is little but this area of the tale totally destroyed me. It made zero feeling to own both love passions be unwell. Really the only good was that the OTP oozes chemistry and additionally they carried this film through all of the plot that is bad and crazy garments.

KMUSE: I happened to be additionally perhaps perhaps not a fan associated with twin timelines. We actually don’t think it was needed by it. As well as I became unhappy we just got our happy ever after because of the couple that is modern. It types of reminds me personally of these romances where in actuality the love that is truen’t take place in addition they die alone limited to some future reincarnated versions to get love. Except, it wasn’t also a genuine version that is reincarnated of OTP. It simply does not work with me personally.

CLKYTTA: Nevertheless fuming in regards to the previous love tale, at us i could believe in him staying with her if they had given ex-girlfriend Athena even a smidgen of a redeeming story arc before throwing the whole cancer ball. I liked our contemporary few a great deal, and genuinely should they had simply used a couple of choose flashbacks rather than the entire twin timelines i do believe this could have already been a great deal better.

Overall Review:

Kmuse: we give this film a 5.5/10 due to the huge issues we had aided by the plot. I recently can’t accept that Kenji willingly went into a wedding with an other woman mainly because she ended up being unwell. Having said that, we give the OTP moments that are cute 8/10. When these were on display screen we completely forget just just how pissed off I became during the plot that is odd.

CLKYTTA: we give this movie a 4/10 because love of an OTP is certainly not a reason that is really good extremely speed a film.

The OTP is definitely an 8/10, these are typically bright, shiny, and enjoyable, and I also would you like to keep viewing more films with them. We just actually wish that the writing is much better within our next film.

We viewed this film regarding the Filipino site that is streaming tv where we view all our Filipino film reviews lawfully. Kmuse is supposed to be doing overview of your website within the future that is near tell you the plusses and minuses to being a customer.
