Filipino films to watch if you enjoyed a certain Hollywood movie

(Please check the notes for all the details.)
Inspired by my friend sarah's list, I decided to make this for people who'd like to try exploring Philippine cinema. Some movies here were deliberately inspired by their predecessor, and I will indicate them. Also, please feel free to comment down below for any suggestions, I will credit everyone in the notes. Thank you and happy watching! ^^
Edit: I've decided to not limit the suggestions to just Hollywood films, maybe just generally non-Filipino language. Considering the suggestions I'm getting, I'll just indicate them

Edit 02/07/22: New suggestions added, thank you everyone!
