SUDDENLY IT’S MAGIC.
So I just watched my most awaited Filipino romantic-comedy film earlier, and I must say, I GOT WAY TOO EMOTIONAL! Everyone knows that I’m a die-hard fan of Mario Maurer and it’s just normal to get excited by this movie, but NO, its not just I want to see him in the big screen… its more than that. So let’s break it down:
1. MARIO. MOVIE. FILIPINO.
Isn’t it awesome? A Thai superstar having a project in your own country and is being screened at local cinemas?
Plus that proud feeling that the Mario you have loved before is now being recognized by other people?
That smirk I give when my seatmates in the cinema everytime they scream at how gorgeous Mario Maurer is.
When they wished that they have met MM, and hold his hands, and all I could do was just sigh in relief because I was lucky to meet him last year.
Everything is just so surreal.
2. ROMANCE. ENVY. NOT.
My friends are expecting me to be jealous of Erich; my mom was even teasing me inside the cinema, but the thing is: I’M NOT JEALOUS OF HER. Don’t ask me why, I don’t know either. Yes, I love MM so much but I don’t envy the girls he’s working with. Maybe because I always remind myself that those girls and I are not on the same level. They are Mario’s co-workers and friends, and I’m just a fan, admiring him from afar. I’m jealous of my co-fans who always get to meet MM in MNL but I was never jealous of Mario’s co-workers.lol
3. MARIO. PERSONAL. WORK.
w We all saw a very sweet, caring and hard-working Marcus in the movie, and that is Mario in real life. I may not have known him in person, but as a fan for years, I can say that the Marcus that Mario portrayed in SIM is close to his real personality. Mario is genuinely a kind person, he loves his family and friends so much, not to mention his girlfriend, and he is very hard working. He’s such a dedicated actor that he really puts an extra effort to get into character. His love and care for his fan is genuine, not just for publicity or what. He stays true to himself, he doesn’t want to hide things from his fans, and that’s why we like him.
4. MARIO. BOYFRIEND.
i I see Gubgib in Joey (Erich’s character), and that’s why I get emotional while watching the movie. Gubgib is Mario’s dearest girlfriend, and childhood friend. I suddenly got jealous of Gubgib, imagine, all those hugs, kisses, and other romantic stuffs are for her… THE REAL ONES HA! If you’ve followed both GG and MM, you’d witness hot they really love each other, romantic dates & overseas trips, or even just a simple get together dinner, or exchange of tweets/texts, GG waiting for MM in the airport, making sure they meet even just for a few minutes, the no-fail facetimes while they are on individual trips overseas, the sweet little things, MM’s boxes of dried mangoes for GG, and the list goes on. What we saw in the movie is not really impossible. From what I’ve read before, there were a lot of people who didn’t like GG for MM, but I have to say, I have a lot of respect for her. She was with MM even before we loved him as P’Shone, she was MM’s friend eventhough he still didn’t have that prince charming vibe on him, when he still wore thick glasses and had pimples, when he was still into skateboarding, and hiphop, she was there. She never left his side. And that’s why I finally got to accept the fact that Mario really loves her.
5. SUDDENLY IT’S MAGIC. PERSONAL. ATTACHMENTS.
bBut the main reason why I got so emotional while watching the movie is that this movie is so close to my heart since it’s the only movie that I followed from the casting-storycons-shooting-promotions-premiere-so on. I can’t even believe that we waited for a year for this movie! From the mystery guy: Asian Superstar tweet from Ms. Joyce, to the Erich or Kim, to the where should we shoot this: what province?, to the shooting last summer, to the promotions, and finally the premiere. It’s just so overwhelming that after a year of waiting, eventhough it’s a predictable plot, you’re still so excited-you-can’t-sleep-and-when-you-watch-you-still-cant-sleep-because-you-want-to-watch-again!!!!!
And of course, I would really like to thank Ms. Joyce Ramirez of Publicity Asia for everything! EVERYTHING! Thank you for signing Mario! Thank you for believing in him! Thank you for being so kind and approachable! You’re every OREOS fairy-queen-mother. I LOVE YOU SO MUCH I COULD HUG YOU RIGHT NOW QUEEN! Hahahaha!
And of course, ABS-CBN for airing some of Mario Maurer’s movies to improve his popularity, for Star Cinema for trusting Mario! To Mario’s team and family <3 To the whole production staff, and crew. To all the fans of Erich, thank you for being so kind and cooperative! AND TO ALL THE OREOS! ESP. THE OFFICERS OF MMPH! YOU GUYS ARE AWESOME! YOU ALL DESERVE THOSE PHOTOS WITH MM (EVENTHOUGH I’M KINDA JEALOUS OF THAT ONE.LOL)
AND TO MARIO! I LOVE YOU SO SO MUCH!
