RANKING FOR QCINEMA 2021 SHORTS


1️⃣ i get so sad sometimes (3/5)

by Trishtan Perez


This is a story about a boy who got sad.

And eventually, you’d feel the same way too.


The film’s strongest suit is its editing.


The visuals, the sound and the phasing are all put into good use, helping you visualize what’s inside the boy’s mind.


The actors and the scenes are believable, enough to make you feel sad.


If they used this emotion and turned it into something uplifting, then this film could’ve been more moving.



2️⃣ HENRY (2/5)

by Kaj Palanca


A teenager named Henry faces challenges about his family and himself.


Carlos Dala is an effective actor, being able to show empathy and sorrow without being vocal.


All the actors are natural in letting us feel their situation.


The calmness of this film brings realistic moments. Though it also hinders them from delivering an impactful message.



3️⃣ IT’S RAINING FROGS OUTSIDE (2/5)

by Maria Estela Paiso

- How ready are you to face the outside world? The consistent eerie atmosphere of this film is contagious. But the message is redundant and the symbolisms are excessive. Feels like the creator really wants to showcase her great editing skills.


4️⃣ MIGHTY ROBO V (2/5)

by Miko Livelo and Mihk Vergara

- Our country’s current situation is transformed into a satirical robot show. The concept is cute. The execution is lively and corny at the same time. The punchlines are not strong enough to wake a sleeping audience.


5️⃣ CITY OF FLOWERS (1/5)

by Xeph Suarez

- A simple family got hit by a tragedy. It’s easy to create a sad story. But it’s hard to feel for the characters, since you don’t get to know them deeply.


6️⃣ SKYLAB (1/5)

by Chuck Escasa

- This is Martial Law from the perspective of two kids. The playful minds of the young made this film more messy than creative.



Date Released: November 26, 2021 via ktx.ph and limited screenings at Gateway
