I have no idea who this doctor Yas Muralla was nor was I even aware of the show “Doctors on TV”. But there’s this nude photos of her that’s making rounds on Facebook. I’m not so sure if this was indeed her in the photo since I don’t see any news verifying this report. Oh well…
I suspect either her husband or the wife of this certain Architect Signo has gotten hold of this saucy photos of her. I don’t know what’s with these people who are snapping intimate photos of themselves.Posted in Filipino Scandals | No Comments »
I could not help but feel dismayed when I saw this article on yahoo. While this amateur filmmaker has this noble intention but I couldn’t understand why he choose to remake a Japanese classic movie. I’m sorry but this whole limited resources is not an excuse if he has limited access to filipino classics. There’s many of it available online and posted on youtube.
Can I say typical colonial mentally? I see this as a grandiose attempt to ride coattails on this Oscar winning foreign fiilm. So how are they going to remake it? Will they convert the samurai into fisherman, carpenter or whatever? Or will they just dress up the local actor as samurai?
The country has so many struggling original filmmakers yet Martha Atienza, Lav Diaz and etc choose to support this guy. Unbelieveable how they tolerate in encouraging aspiring filmmakers to be unoriginal. It’s gonna inspire new waves of struggling filmmakers to remake foreign classics. We’ll probably be seeing remakes of Ingmar Bergman’s Seventh Seal, Citizen Kane, Casablanca, and etc.
Rashomon Japanese Movie
Posted in Indie Filipino Films | No Comments »
Cloyd Ribo, a middle-aged struggling local filmmaker from a remote island in southern Philippines, dreams of remaking Akira Kurosawa’s award-winning film “Rashomon” in his native dialect (Lawisanon).
With the help of trusted artist-friends, Ribo is in the process of making this film project a reality on Bantayan Island in Cebu.
Asked why he chose to remake “Rashomon,” Ribo explained: “It’s a narrative that revealed so much about humanity.” “Rashomon” is a Japanese crime drama film that won the Golden Lion Award for its director (Akira Kurosawa) in the 1951 Venice Film Festival, and Best Foreign Language Film in the 24th Academy Wards in the US in 1952.
Ribo is a self-taught filmmaker, who has been studying the craft from online sources, mostly from Youtube, since 2010.
His barbecue-cum-internet shop has been the venue of his online learning. From there, he has learned the ropes of film making, including how to use the camera, editing, and graphic ad via the internet.
Under Project Cloyd initiated by the Office of Culture and Design (OCD), a group of Filipino directors from the Philippine independent cinema community and Spanish directors has been helping Ribo’s group realize this project. The lineup of directors and creative professionals include Lav Diaz, Yason Banal, Martha Atienza, Franco Guerrero, Joey Suaco, Raya Martin, Spanish director Carlos Casas and graphic artist Rafa Cortez.
Senator Tito Sotto’s “Maalaala mo kaya” worthy performance on “Turno en Contra” on the Reproductive Health is plagued with issue such as plagiarism. Obviously, since he got some lazy staff to write the speech for him, this leaves him no choice to assume responsibility for it. Instead of apologizing for this embarrassing lapse, he vehemently denied it the way seasoned politicians do. I wonder if that staff will be expecting some Christmas bonus this year?
Anyway, all this hoopla got the attention of the blogger Sarah who originaly wrote the article. Apparently, she wasn’t amused. Read about it here. You guys can stop apologizing on behalf of our idiotic senator, she seems cool about it. The good thing about it is that it got the attention on the serious side effects the pill might cause in the long run. The fight for RH Bill still continues and hope that it will indeed gets passed.
Below is a comparison of Sotto’s speech and Sarah’s blog:
“According, to Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride MD, the use of the pill also causes severe gut dysbiosis. What is worse, drug induced gut imbalance is especially intractable and resistant to treatment either with probiotics or diet change.”
“According, to Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride MD, use of other drugs such as the Pill also cause severe gut dybiosis. What’s worse, drug induced gut imbalance is especially intractable and resistant to treatment either with probiotics or diet change.”
“Gut imbalance brought on through use of the pill negatively impacts the ability to digest food and absorb nutrients. As a result, even if a woman eats spectacularly well during pregnancy, if she has been taking oral contraceptives for a period of time beforehand, it is highly likely that she and her baby are not reaping the full benefits of all this healthy food as the lack of beneficial flora in her gut preclude this from occurring.”

“Pathogenic, opportunistic flora that take hold in the gut when the pill is used constantly produce toxic substances which are the by-products of their metabolism. These toxins leak into the woman’s bloodstream and they have the potential to cross the placenta. Therefore, gut dysbiosis exposes the fetus to toxin.”

“Not well known is also the fact that use of the pill depletes zinc in the body. Zinc is called ‘the intelligence mineral’ as it is intimately involved in mental development.”

Once again we see Lovi Poe in Regal Film’s horror flick “Guni Guni”. Seriously, don’t they get tired of casting her in horror films. We keep seeing this chick everywhere. Anyway the movie trailer fails to grab my attention. The CGI and make up looks very fake. Looks like a high school production to me with bigger budget.Posted in Filipino Films | No Comments »
The Reunion movie is Star Cinema’s next generation of Barkada movies which features young actors such as Enchong Dee, Enrique Gil, Xian Lim and Kean Cipriano. The film is directed by Frasco Mortiz who happens to be the son of Direk Bobot Mortiz and nephew of ABS CBN Executive Charo Santos. Gee, I guess it must be nice to have a family in showbiz to get a head start.
The film is about four guys who obviously aren’t too happy with their current careers in life. They deal with it by reminiscing how cool their lives during their high school days. Eventually, they concluded that their misery started with the breakup of their friend’s relationship. By plotting to get them back together, they hope that their lives will improve if that happens.

Despite being unfairly disqualified by Cinemalaya for casting issues that doesn’t stop Emerson Reyes from finishing his movie MNL 143. Knowing that it’s going to be a big challenge for him financially, he forges on doing all that he can to make his film become a reality. Finally his movie is finished and ready for screening. His work MNL 143 proves that you don’t need Cinemalaya to earn a big break. I hope that more people will support this movie.
MNL 143 Synopsis
On a commuter’s trip from Manila’s business district to the suburbs, the director finds a myriad of possibilities, ranging from miniature ironic situations to a love story that is finally finding its unexpected closing. An emotional rollercoaster ride of despair, dreams and desire, MNL 143 is also a black comedy about limited private spaces in conflict with sprawling public realms.

Directed by: Emerson Reyes
Gino Santos’ The Animals is the film the replaced Emerson Reyes’ MNL 143 in Cinemalaya film grant when it was disqualified. While the cinematography looks definitely good, I have yet to see the story. No doubt the movie would be good despite having the much despised actor Albie Casino in it. The film is basically just about spoiled rich kids who have nothing better to do with their life. I highly doubt if the masses would appreciate such self indulging movie.

Gerald Anderson expands his acting prowess by accepting an Indie film. I doubt if he’ll strip and do some macho dancing. But wait, he’s already doing that in a Star Cinema movie. Anyway, He will star in “El Brujo”, an independent action film by Tikoy Aguiluz. There’s not much known about the film but we’ll see when the trailer comes out.
