Needed more of the Girl and less of the Gun.
Janine Gutierrez was good, but Urian-worthy? Not so much.
Great first and last 10 minutes. Bawled my eyes out. Way too many fillers. I would have wanted 5 more minutes of Janice, Richard, and the Gellers than a segment of David Beckham explaining why he’s a Monica or knowing that a BTS dude learned English from watching the show.

My notes on Never Not Love You:
1. You know how in a relationship you’re willing to look beyond the faults of your partner simply because you really like/love the other person?

It couldn’t have been all just a coincidence, right?

It was nothing more than a mishmash of every horror movie that you’ve already seen. Except that this one starred The Sacred Riana.
I wish it focused more on the important issues (mental health/depression, death penalty, homosexuality vis a vis Catholicism), but its idea of being smart was naming a character Erica (nicknamed Eri like Eerie, of course!) Sayco (as in Norman Bates).
To be fair, I watched it in a packed theater and the audience lapped up every cheap scare thrown at them. Mga valak twoooooaaaahhhhh!!
