Top 10 Movies in the Philippines to Watch With Your Mom for that Post Mothers Day Celebration

In the movie Tangled, antagonist Gothem sang a truth we all would agree with. It was during the scene Rapunzel was trying to break free from the tower when she was reminded that “Mother will protect you, skip the drama, stay with Mama, mother knows best.”


And while it came from a wicked mother in the story who’s trying to manipulate the gullible, kidnapped princess, we all know it’s true. It is not only that they know best, they are the best. It is when they do the lowliest chore untiringly and support us wholeheartedly that their love shines the most. That’s why this Mother’s month, let us give them a special moment they would always remember. And you know the best idea to do? A movie marathon with mom!
