Free movies on iflix

It is generous for iflix to offer movies for free, which means you don’t have to be a subscriber to watch. But, of course the titles in this free movies category aren’t the ones you may really want to watch and those that you eithermissed or didn’t care to watch when they were screened in cinemas are not offered for free. You have to havd a VIP subscription

Stil, you can enjoy the free movies on iflix that you can now watch on your TV sets (just download the app on your smartTV) and presto! you’re watching a Tagalog movie I used to mirror iflix on my non-smart TV set before, but now it’s as easy as watching Netflix..

So far, I have been able to watch Mike de Leon’s Citizen Jake andBayaning Third World, Irene Villaflor’s Camp Sawin and most recently Sigried Andrea Bernardo’s Mr. & Mrs. Cruz.

I found the film rather sketchy…what brought the two to Palawan apart from both of them are nursing broken hearts?...Was Gela married, really? But she is too young to be dropped by her husband for another woman. And Raffy, why did her fiancée leave her before they could get married.

Time to say goodbye: After a wild night together, Gela decides to move on, leaving Raffy behind

Bernardo who also wrote the script wasn’t interested in those. Instead she focused on her two characters and how they cavorted and had sex in their first night at a resort in Palawan. And when the time comes to end the film, she merely had Gela saying goodbye, leaving Raffy behind and a book (Romeo and Juliet), which the two discussed before they got lost in their crazy intoxicated night.

Anyway, I am so glad these films are for free, otherwise I would have regretted having paid P250 at the box office to watch each of them. Thanks, iflix for reminding me about how petty Tagalog movies are.
