CineFilipino 2015 announces top picks for 2016 Film Festival showing

 

 “Maraming nagsasabe, ‘Naku ang dami-dami ng film festivals sa ating bansa’. Ang sabe ko, ‘Ano’ng masama dun?’ Anon’g masama kung marami tayong film festival sa ating bansa? Sa katunayan ang dami-dami mang film festival pero iisang uri lamang ng mga pelikula ang pinapanood ng mas marami. Siguro sa pamamagitan ng mga film festival na ito, mas mabubuksan natin ang pananaw at kaisipan ng mas maraming manonood na Pilipino na ma-appreciate ang mga alternatibong uri ng pelikula na gawa ng mga mas magagaling at mas batang filmmakers.” (A lot of people are saying, ‘There are too many film festivals in the country already’.

 Known as a comic onstage, lashing out spiels of humor with his band Kamikazee, Jay Contreras is one heck of a performer. Little to the knowledge of his fans, Jay is also a lover of art and he has expressed this in countless photographs he took once in while, during tours, out-of-town gigs, and especially when he’s with his family. Here’s Jay’s definition of art “Tinging ko sa art ay… hindi lang siya nakikita. Ang art nararamdaman mo, kahit picture yan at nakita mo, nararamdaman mo yung nakita ng nag-take ng picture na yun. Dapat yung art nakakaapekto sa tao (nakakakita), […]

EMILIA CLARKE AS SARAH CONNOR IN TERMINATOR GENISYS (PHOTO CREDIT TO THE OWNER)

Game of Thrones’ Mother of Dragons Emilia Clarke deserves another Terminator Genisys sequel

 

 Baby face Emilia Clarke, who is popularly known as Daenerys Targaryen in the HBO series Game of Thrones, is a badass Sarah Connor in Terminator Genisys. Linda Hamilton put a stamp on the Sarah character but this is 2015. Clarke can pick up from Hamilton‘s Sarah. Too bad they say that the movie was a flop and it seems there will be no sequel for Clarke. No, they can’t blame Arnold ‘Pops’ Schwarzenegger for the box office flop. However they say it, we like how the storyline was conceived. Each characters has their own build-up thing in the movie. The time travel twist may […]

ESCUDERO-POE TANDEM 2016 PHILIPPINE ELECTION

Escudero-Poe tandem plausible in 2016

 

 Recently,  the Escudero-Poe tandem floats as one of the powerhouse team to beat in the coming Philippines 2016 Election. This, if both Sen. Francis ‘Chiz’ Escudero and Sen. Grace Poe will come to a final decision and seal their political partnership. This would be a great tandem to watch out for. Chiz for President and Poe for Vice President. But why not the other way around? Although Poe has a powerful charisma over to win people’s hearts and votes, it would be smart for her to stay on the second position for the meantime, rather to seek the highest position in the land this early.

GRABTAXI DRIVER'S OPEN LETTER TO THE PUBLIC

A GrabTaxi Driver’s Open Letter to the Public

 

 It was just another ordinary day and the usual ride after I booked GrabTaxi from Quezon City to Ortigas. The ride was relatively smooth except for occasional minor bumps of traffic jams along the EDSA to Santolan highway. This has been a regular scenario though along EDSA. I engaged in a conversation with kuya Ferdinand, who drives ACA 5762, and asked him politely about his experience as a GrabTaxi driver. He told me that he is earning well, thanks to GrabTaxi, and he prides himself with take-home money that he spent to pay for his family’s personal expenses. It was just a casual talk, a regular […]
