Movies have always been one of the things that Filipino people cling to for entertainment. Apart from its entertainment value is its ability to make people relate to its plot and characters.
There is a reason why certain movies stick with us even after they’re released. More than the actors or the story, it’s the humorous, serious, and most of all painful lines, or most popular as hugot-lines, that really speaks to us.
Who wouldn’t forget Popoy’s “She loved me at my worst. You had me at my best,” in One More Chance, and Bobbie’s “Pero bakit parang galit ka? Pero bakit kasalanan ko?” in Four Sisters and a Wedding?
So, we’re bringing back some of the most iconic Filipino movie lines that will make you feel its ~FEELS~ all over again!
