Bela Padilla is one of the most bankable actresses in the Philippines today. Not only is she beautiful and sexy – she’s really talented!
In the past years, Bela starred in a number of movies that are considered as box-office hits and critically acclaimed. As a big fan, I am happy to share my Top 5 Favorite Bela Padilla Movies:
1. 100 Tula Para Kay Stella
The biggest hit of the very 1st Pista ng Pelikulang Pilipino! For me, this is the movie that made Bela Padilla a box-office star. In this Jason Paul Laxamana film, she plays the role of Stella, a college student who is in a rock band who caught the attention of the stuttering poet Fidel. An unlikely but special friendship developed between the two and eventually, they developed romantic feelings.
The movie is relatable especially for those who spent their college years in the province. I end up crying in the scene where Stella and Fidel reunited in Pampanga infront of the Mt. Arayat. “Hindi na puwede, eh..”
2. Meet Me in St. Gallen
Jesse and Celeste forever! This movie is a great comeback of Carlo Aquino as a leading man. The movie penned and directed by Irene Villamore is divided in three sections: A chance meeting in Manila, a coincidental meeting in a coffee shop and in St. Gallen in Switzerland. The movie is a perfect example of “we have the right love at the wrong time”. I sad there in the movie house still hoping for another scene for a happy ending (SPOILER: It’s Not!).
FPJ’S Ang Probinsyano is a very complex story with its protagonist, Cardo, having many love interests through the course of the show. But the one love team we admired the most was Cardo-Carmen. Coco Martin and Bela Padilla had a great chemistry that enabled them to bring their character’s relationship so beautiful on the screen.
Even when they did not end up together, I still think that they would make a good couple. FYI: Carmen was Cardo’s eventual wife in the original Ang Probinsyano Movie. Let’s reminisce together the most memorable scenes of Cardo and Carmen.
1 . A Promise: Even when he pretends to be his brother, Ador, Cardo promises Carmen that he will take care of them. “Pangako ko sayo, babawi ako…”
2. Cardo’s New Life: Cardo Meets Carmen for the first time.
3. Expressive: How do you react to your late twin brother’s hot wife who thinks that you are him? Awkwardness overload.
Media, corruption, killings. Is there anyone left you can trust?
