#halimawsabanga : one horror flick I can’t forget


My ever beloved friendship Raven reenacts his all-time favorite 1986 monster hit flick Halimaw Sa Banga (“monster in a jar” as directed by master director Mario O’ Hara). The Mother of all Pinoy monsters, Halimaw sa Banga have changed the way we look at antique jars. The film traumatized a lot of Pinoy kids the way “Freddie Krueger” and “Chuckie” of Child’s Play did to American audience.

Filipiknow.net wrote “The monster was actually an ancient witch who was killed, cursed and trapped inside the large jar a long time ago. From then on, every curious people who looks down inside the jar gets served as the monster’s dinner. Halimaw sa Banga is actually an episode of the two-part Halimaw film which won 3rd Best Picture award at MMFF. But thanks to its authentic scare tactics, this pale monster made it to Pinoy horror’s hall of fame (at least according to its trembling fans).

Aljur Abrenica: #PersonaNonGrata


Pinasok na ata ng hangin ang utak ni Aljur Abrenica when he filed to “end his mother contract” with GMA 7.  The network described the ordeal as

‘very unfortunate’

“GMA Artist Center has not been remiss in its duties as his manager, practising a consultative style of management with Aljur. With his best interest in mind, this practice has accorded him every opportunity to personally assess all offers to reach a mutual agreement.”

“GMA Network has equally given him projects, some of which were lead roles in the Network’s primetime programs.”

“Aljur is a home-grown GMA talent who was discovered through the reality search, Starstruck, in 2007.”

Aljur should have thought about this action thoroughly.  Dapat pinagtuunan nya muna ang pag-aaral ng proper acting hindi yung puro papa-kyut lang ang alam niya.  He should have considered the fact that GMA invested a lot on him.  Kahit na nga palpak ang mga TV serye nya at hindi karaniwang nag-rerate eh pinagtyagaan pa rin siya.  Remember “Machete”… tumagal nga lang ata ito ng isang buwan sa ere.  How about yung movie nya na hindi naman ata tumabo sa takilya – “My Kontrabida Girl”.  Tinambal pa siya kay Rhian Ramos ah.  Pinagtyagaan kong panoorin ang movie na ito dahil mega crush ko naman talaga si Aljur Abrenica pero dyusko ang akting… ansakit sa panga.  May eksena pa nga rito na nasa gitna sila ng palayan ni Rhian.  Medyo heavy na dapat ang aktingan pero parang walang dating.  Ang ginawa ni direk, nagpaulan na lang para madaya yung eksena. Para mukhang umiiyak si Aljur bwahahaha.

San naman siya sisiksik…sa ABS CBN?  Dahil ingit na ingit siya sa career ni Paolo Avelino?  Dyuskoday!!! Di ba niya naisip na kaya di naman napansin dati si Paolo sa GMA eh dahil nakatutok sila sa kanya dahil siya nga yung Big Winner by that time.  Eh kung may choice lang naman ang GMA 7 by that time eh di sana mas binigyan nila ng priority si Paolo.

Tigilan mo nga ako Aljur… kanino ka lalaban sa ABS? Kina John  Lloyd at Gerald?  Magaral ka muna ng Ingles… yung straight english bago ka mag-inarte. Nakakakulo ka lang ng ulo!

Daniel Matsunaga’s #scandalous photo


speaking of Daniel Matsunaga – this hot Brazilian model may have his own share of sizzling photos lurking the internet.  Well, i think these photos were taken when he is still starting as a model and of course its a cut-throat industry – you need to stand out and let the gay community notice you.  It may have been his spring board to fame but i guess its all worth it… look on where he stands now… anyway, scroll down dear patrons and you’ll see what i meant.  Just “drool at your own risk”

#PBBBigWinner2014: Hooray for Daniel Matsunaga!


Filipinos love our expats.  I can still remember when Akihiro Sato was named as the ultimate survivor in GMA7’s local franchise of the said show.  Now, we celebrate the success of another Brazilian Hunk Daniel Matsunaga as he was named 2014 PBB Big Brother ultimate winner.  Even the queen of all media Kris Aquino voted for him!  Maybe his fortune cookie says like this – “You can see how good looks and killer abs can bring great fortune – Confusion”

Nonetheless, this guy is well loved by Filipinos.  I have not read anything bad about him.  Often, you can see him smile (its his job, duh) and very soft spoken even on his interviews.  I felt sad when he left GMA7.  I think he left with a broken heart and jump to TV5.  He stayed for a while on the said network then signed up with the local PBB competition.  Anyway, we can see more of his killer abs on local airwaves at least for now… cause we never know if he will leave us with his millions after fulfilling his duties.  Remember what Aki did after one year in showbiz..  where is he anyway?

Unparalleled #Bromance: #AdamLevine and #BlakeShelton of #TheVoice


this weekend, im just watching reruns of The Voice.  I cant help it! I’m getting addicted and i cant help but laugh over and over again.  My psychologist warned me with this sort of things.  Don’t get too attached and stay away from your TV.  But then again, how would he know if watched it from the internet.  Thank you YOUTUBE.  Your my savior!

And who wouldn’t get addicted.  Plus the bromance thingy that is stirring between Rock God Adam Levine and Country Superstar Blake Shelton is phenomenal. Both has nothing to prove in term of sexuality and they just enjoy each others company.  Their like brothers born from different vaginas. even dubbed by People magazine as “The Odd Couple”

#TheVoice and #AmericanIdol tops my list


singing contest in the boob tube are almost endless.  We got American Idol and The X Factor.  We also have our own version franchised from these international shows that boast local talents with a mixture of local and international judges.  One great example is “The Voice Philippines” with judges such as Lea Salonga, Black Eyed Peas APL, Sarah Geronimo and Bamboo.  Other local TV programs boast of local divas who host the shows including Regine Velasquez.  Dont forget “The One Million Peso” Karaoke Challenge by Jaya and Allan K which i dearly miss. With the same formula, what makes these shows different from one another?  Two shows stood out though – American Idol USA and The Voice USA.  All programs has their own merit but American idol produces the most successful newcomers in the music industry.  Grammy Award Winners Kelly Clarkson and Carrie Underwood, Oscar Award Winner Jennifer Hudson, David Cook, David Archuleta, Jessica Sanchez to name a few. The Voice USA however boast of its great concept and the like-able judges – Adam Levine, Blake Shelton, Christina Aguillera, Ceelo Green and Adam Levine.  Plus mega producer Usher and Hot Temptress Shakira Clipped some amazing episodes from both shows and then some… enjoy

drooling over the #TomDen love affair


We’ve been drooling  over this two hunks merged by a phenomenal gay soap opera that finally will bade goodbye to local boob tube as it counts down its final week – the Tom RodriguezDennis Trillo love team that we’ve been gushing for more than 4 months now.

Who would have thought that they will even remain for at least a month and has been extended numerous times due to public clamor?  No one knew!

It’s a first in the local telly that a whole country has gone gaga over two straight guys with their gay character at the highly successful soap “My Husbands Lover”.  I’m just so happy that these two actors which I adore so much who gambled with their careers to bring in to life the characters of Vincent and Eric has been reaping success since from the start.  They had proven that gay characters are no longer a hindrance towards success.  Hoping to see Tom and Dennis in the local television and cinema.
