2Baka Bukas

Starring: Jasmine Curtis-Smith, Louise Delos Reyes, Kate Alejandrino
Director: Samantha Lee
Release: March 1, 2017

It’s 2017, and it’s highly commendable that Philippine cinema is definitely redefining itself out of the comforts of societal norms. Baka Bukas testifies to this fact that Philippine cinema and its audience have widened their perspectives towards societal and artistic diversities.

Baka Bukas tells the story of a twenty-something-year-old creative in Manila who is struggling with the response of so people in her life towards her sexuality and her silent love for her best friend. From this premise unfolds a promising story of the gratification that unfolds in being true to whoever or whatever you are.

Hands down to the makers of Baka Bukas for bringing Filipino cinematic arts yet to another level of honorable. Add this to your local movies to watch this March!


Starring: Hugh Jackman, Dafne Keen, Patrick Stewart
Director: James Mangold
Release: March 1, 2017

Looking not too far ahead is a dreary life for Logan. This time in the near future, we see a state wherein the number of mutants has come to a few. Logan’s power is dwindling. His life is of scarcity. On top of that, under his care is a sickly Professor X. Living a life in the dust yet quietly is probably the best he could ask for himself but all that changes when a girl ends up in his care breaking the silence of his life.

This third cinematic adaptation involving Wolverine explores struggles of Logan in levels we have not seen in cinema before. This alone gets us all geared up to watch Logan.

4T2 Trainspotting

Starring: Ewan McGregor, Jonny Lee Miller, Ewen Bremner
Director: Danny Boyle
Release: March 1, 2017

Trainspotting from 20 years ago is a brilliant exploration of how life morphs amidst the strength and weaknesses of drugs. It is an iconic, groundbreaking moving that is equally brilliant as it is disturbing. So much so that 20 years after, here we all are, waiting for the comeback.

Here it finally is. This March brings us a conclusion to a wait worth two decades! Mark Renton played by Ewan McGregor returns to his hometown with his friends and everything that comes along with his hometown waiting for him. With high expectations, as it should be, we feel like this movie is going to be as moving and as mind-boggling as the first.

5Before I Fall

Starring: Zoey Deutch, Liv Hewson, Jennifer Beals
Director: Ry Russo-Young
Release: March 8, 2017

This is a story of a girl who had to live a day of her life again. While this may sound enticing especially for a girl who seems to have a perfect life, the story of Before I Fall is far from that. Imagine having to live a day again… and again and again. This leads Samantha Kingston, the main persona in the film, to discover the loose ends in her life through that single day she gets to relive over and over.

This film adaptation of the book by Lauren Oliver is one of the most much-awaited films of 2017 and movies to watch this March. Relive the story of the book in a cinematic experience that will definitely make you realize how much power a single day holds.

6Kong: Skull Island

Starring: Tom Hiddleston, Samuel L. Jackson, Brie Larson
Director: Jorgan Vogt-Roberts

This is what happens when an adventure of a lifetime leads you to your life’s biggest misadventure. Kong: Skull Island leads to a discovery of an island monster by a group of explorers and soldiers who found themselves in a territory reigned over by a king that’s not quite humanly. This movie is another adventure that’s going to take us into so many levels of wild. Buckle those seats, people. This is going to be one hell of a ride.

7Beauty and the Beast

Starring: Emma Watson, Dan Stevens, Josh Gad, Luke Evans
Director: Bill Condon

Fairy tales come true, we believed when we were kids. Well, yes, they actually do.

A beloved fairy tale is coming to life this March. We have been watching quite keenly on every sneak peek we can get our eyes on on this one. It is finally, finally here! Emma Watson comes back as yet another literary heroine we all grew to love. Dan Stevens is bringing the Beast to life.

We’re pretty sure Beauty and the Beast will be nothing short of magical and will truly be a swift and poignant trip to memory lane for us who fell in love with this fairy tale in days of old.

Not to mention that part in the trailer where John Legend and Ariana Grande sing the iconic Beauty and the Beast theme song completely burns the fire in us. This might make the top of the list of movies to watch this March!
