Just some useless commentaries regarding some TV ads ;-)

Not working right now and I am trying to get better so that I can get back to serving God, researching and exploring the world.  While recuperating at home, here are some of my useless observations regarding a few TV ads: I love this commercial, but I have a "useless" comment: In the shorter version of this TV ad  the drumstick was hardly finished then Atasha asks, "Dad, isa pa(one more?)? Isa pang Chicken Joy!" (to reminisce about Serena Dalrymple)   This whole ad makes more sense.  ;-) There are so many places to explore in Spain, but the first thing they "explored" is dancing Flamenco, just so they could show their beautiful hair.

Mom's observation: How come Sarah has more exposure?

Dad's observation: Although I love Julia as an actress, right now, Sarah is the bigger star and she should be honoured to be in a TV ad with her.

That's his opinion.  ;-)

What is the message of this commercial? Are they housemates? ;-) (Useless thought bubble…

CONTRA MUNDUM(Defy the World): ANG LARAWAN, The Musical (Parental Guidance)

For non-Filipino speakers, there are English Subtitles #contramundum#defytheworld#showlarawansomelove The 1965 movie was in full English with some Spanish and it left a deep mark in my heart.  Even if I was never deprived of love lives through the years, right now, I am over the hill and considered a spinster by a lot of condescending and "caring" people alike, so I really found Tony Javier's character deplorable. 
In the musical movie that almost was not shown during the Metro Manila Film Festival 2017 even if it was critically acclaimed elsewhere, Tony Javier is still an a-hole, and that same a-hole was personified by Paulo Avelino.
The Late National Artist Rolando S. Tinio's Screenplay makes the audience feel that every scene is real, so what if a character breaks into song once in a while?  There were funny and witty lines too.  Even if it was faithful to the National Artist, Nick Joaquin's original story, Mr. Tinio gave it its own style, making it fresh that no…

Star Wars Episode 8: The Last Jedi (2017) Rated G (Not really a review)

(source) (source) Rey develops her newly discovered abilities with the guidance of Luke Skywalker, who is unsettled by the strength of her powers. Meanwhile, the Resistance prepares to do battle with the First Order.-WWW Director: Rian Johnson Music composed by: John Williams Screenplay: Rian JohnsonWhew.  Finally, I've seen episode 8.  My nephew wanted to watch it with us and we had to see it together for the first time, so we won't spoil anything for him.  We watched it on his birthday, which was yesterday...well, a few hours ago.  
Is this really Rated G?  I'll still go with PG, but hey, the kids understood it and they enjoyed it.  We enjoyed this as well.
There are a few people who were not contented of the outcome of this movie, but I know a lot of people who have seen this a gazillion times.  Of course, I am exaggerating.  My point is, they watched it more than once.
There are many funny and witty moments.  If you loved BB-8 before, you would love him even more.

Agatha Christie's Murder on the Orient Express (2017) PG

How Faithful Is Murder on the Orient Express to Agatha Christie’s Classic Detective Novel? A Breakdown(warning, the link has spoilers).A lavish trip through Europe quickly unfolds into a race against time to solve a murder aboard a train. When an avalanche stops the Orient Express dead in its tracks, the world's greatest detective -- Hercule Poirot -- arrives to interrogate all passengers and search for clues before the killer can strike again.-WWWDirected by: Kenneth BranaghScreenplay: Michael GreenMusic by: Patrick DoyleDistributed by: 20th Century Fox
Agatha Christie is one of my favourite authors.  Miss Marple and Monsieur Poirot were part of my growing up years alongside the Stratemeyer Syndicate's Carolyn Keene's NANCY DREW.  Murder on the Orient Express is one of the memorable ones, except some of the scenes of the book and the 1974 movie are quite hazy or I have mixed up the scenes already.
Honestly, when I was watching this 2017 version I kept asking my folks what w…

Trip Ubusan (The Lolas vs. Zombies) Graded A ---2017 (Parental Guidance)

Archie Adamos,  Jhayvot Galang, Arthur Solinap, Lovely Abella, Angelika Dela Cruz, Taki Saito, Kenneth Medrano, Ryzza Mae Dizon, Miggy Tolentino, Shaira Mae Dela Cruz, Jose Manalo, Wally Bayola, Paolo Ballesteros and Caprice Cayetano Writers: Raymund Navarro-   story (also known for Kapitan Awesome) Ma. Acy Q. Ramos-screenplay (also known for With A Smile, Princess in the Palace, etc.) Mark A. Reyes V is a very versatile director.  He is able to direct movies, TV Shows, TV series or whatever else without being stuck in one genre.  
Trip Ubusan is supposed to be a parody or a spoof of TRAIN TO BUSAN,  but like some of the critics or reviewers described, it's more than that.
Of course, I had to see it for myself.  Would I have a different opinion or would I agree with them?  
After watching it I agree with them.
The movie is not just about laughs or scary zombies, it's about family, friendship, unity, bravery, not being judgmental and being able to surpass all odds no matter what.

No.  I won't lie.  I did enjoy this film and had fun watching it with my family. We like it the way it is.  If we did not know Mr. Snyder's "thoughts", we would be content with it.  Now that we know, I want to see how Zack Snyder envisioned it.  If you click the link above, there'll be spoilers, but it's interesting to …

I might as well blog about this: MY KOREAN JAGIYA

Main Stars: Heart Evangelista- Guadalupe Immaculada "Gia" Asuncion Iya Villania- Teacher Kennedy Santos Khane Dela Cruz- Pao Myke Salamon- Kerwin Valeen Montenegro-Cindy Kim Raymart Santiago- Dodong Del Prado Frances Makil-Ignacio- Carrie Washington Divine-Clarissa Ricky Davao-Tita Josie Janice De Belen-Tita Aida Edgar Allan Guzman-Ryan This is the series that lifts up my spirits.  When the trailer was shown the first time my first reaction was, "Of all the great Hallyu actors out there, why him?" 
He's not bad to look at, but I just did not see any chemistry between him and Heart Evangelista, but when I started watching from day 1, I got hooked.  The Crazy Girl and the super "sungit at galit sa mundo" Korean Super Star do have chemistry after all.
The problem is, when Alexander Lee has scenes with the gorg…
