I wish I could write about every play, movie musical or television show, magazine, novel, comic book, short story, poem or song that have touched my heart, but...
Anyways, my old blog went pfft, but there's no use crying over spilt milk.
So here's to a fresh start. Cheers!
Kung Fu Divas (2013)
Kung Fu Divas is a 2013 Filipino action comedy film produced under Reality Entertainment and The O&Co. Picture Factory starring Ai Ai delas Alas and Marian Rivera.Wikipedia
The story was funny(the corny lines were delivered well) and the "improbable scenes" were believable. In my opinion, because of the innuendos, I think this is not a film for the whole family, but on the other hand, I don't think the super little ones would "get" the sublimation, so I guess it's OK. (Ang haba ng sentence...LOL)
I'm not really a Marian Rivera fan, but she was really very, very good here. She's such a natural.
Ai Ai De las Alas is really brilliant and the rest of the supporting cast did their jobs well.
The story was shallow, but very, very enjoyable.
Edward Mendez is now one of my crushes ;-)

The haunting story of THE GIVER centers on Jonas, a young man who lives in a seemingly ideal, if colorless, world of conformity and contentment. Yet as he begins to spend time with The Giver, who is the sole keeper of all the community's memories, Jonas quickly begins to discover the dark and deadly truths of his community's secret past. With this newfound power of knowledge, he realizes that the stakes are higher than imagined - a matter of life and death for himself and those he loves most. At extreme odds, Jonas knows that he must escape their world to protect them all - a challenge that no one has ever succeeded at before.

I never saw any trailer of this film, but when my friend and neighbor, Jean Reyes(Tarog's classmate in UPLB), invited me to watch a Cinemalaya Directors' Showcase entry in Greenbelt 3 last night(July 31, 2013), but did not know the title of the film(she just found out that this was megged by Tarog when we were already inside the cinema), I sil…
From The Wrap.Com I'm at a loss for words. That's strange because I am usually verbose. I was dumbfounded by the special effects and the story. I love the cliff hanger and I can't wait for the second installment. I honestly haven't read the book, so I cannot say if I like the movie better or not. All I know is that I love it! I'll try to think of comments and I would put them beside the name of each cast member. I want to congratulate the whole team, most especially James Newton Howard for the background music that bring out all types of emotions; Philippe Rousselot for the awesome cinematography; Mark Day for the almost seamless, if not seamless editing and David Yates for a great directorial "job".
