Well, I adore Jade Castro’s work but I find myself completely gagging over Rhian Ramos and Aljur Abrenica movie. I find it a total waste of talent for making this atrocious movie. I’ll just stick to watching Zombadings to erase from my mind this atrocious movie. However I find myself laughing at some people comments that the movie should be titled “My Abortionista Girl”. Anyway I’m not watching this movie, can’t stand watching Rhian and Aljur’s awful acting.

Unofficially Yours star cinema’s romantic comedy starring Angel Locsin and John Lloyd Cruz. This is a typical romantic comedy about friends with benefits. Well, I dunno why there’s a need to jump in the band wagon. We all know how this one would end, they will fall madly in love with each other so *yawn*. I don’t know why Director Cathy Molina saying that the people are ready for “mature” stories. It’s not like filipinos are kept in the dark about that kind of set-up in relationships.Posted in Filipino Films | No Comments »
Normally I wouldn’t bat an eyelash on Star Cinema’s latest mediocre film offering. When I read on their official facebook fanpage site stating that “My Cactus Heart” is an indie film produced by Star Cinema. What the hell?! A major movie outfit just labeled their product as indie when in fact it’s not. The reason why indie films are labeled as such because they are produced independently without the backing of major movie outfit. It’s like a cow’s milk carelessly labeled as soy milk.
Cactus Heart Synopsis
My Cactus Heart’ is an upcoming indie film that stars real-life sweethearts Maja Salvador and Matteo Guidicelli. Salvador stated that the film will be released on the first quarter of 2012.

Asiong Salonga is one of this year’s controversial Metro Manila Film Festival from Tikoy Aguiluz restraining order to halt the film’s showing to the “sabotage” of the film prints. Let’s start with the begrudged director Tikoy Aguiluz. Apparently, the director was not pleased when the producers decided to make major changes on the film editing. He filed a restraining order to force the producers to take his name off the movie credits. The next controversy is where EJ Ejercito claimed of a sabotage where SQ laboratories released only 17 prints out of 51 films which affected the ticket sales.
What is Asiong Salonga Movie really about? The movie is a biopic of a gang leader Asiong Salonga, known for his crimes but also for his good heart as well. He robs from the rich and gives to the poor, a modern day robinhood.
Production wise, the cinematography is a step up from previous action films. However, I couldn’t help but snicker at EJ Ejercito’s clean shaven armpits. I mean, he’s portraying a “macho” guy image here. Does the real Asiong Salonga actually shaved his?

Praybeyt Benjamin is Vice Ganda’s follow up movie since his smash hit “Petrang Kabayo”. One couldn’t help but find the movie a gay version of Goldie Hawn’s “Private Benjamin”. Maybe that’s why they altered the title. In fairness the movie’s got potential. I think this one is better than Petrang Kabayo. In fact it’s a laugh to see Vice Ganda making pa-boy effect.
I couldn’t help but snickered upon seeing DJ Durano’s mug once again. This could only mean that Wenn Deramas is once again helming this movie.
Benjamin Santos came from a long line of soldiers in his clan. Since he turned out to be gay, his grandfather considered him a disgrace to the family. When the country is on the brink of civil war, he decides to enlist in his father’s place. Life at the bootcamp isn’t as easy as expected but soon finds himself falling for his hunky Sargeant.

Aswang is a remake from original horror thriller movie which starred Alma Moreno. Lovi Poe’s exotic looks definitely fit her in this movie. Paulo Avelino plays the role as her leading man. Though this film looks interesting but certainly not enticing enough to make me pay for it. I’ll just wait for it when it comes out of cable.

Film Academy of the Philippines has selected “Ang Babae sa Septic Tank” for 2012 Oscars. While I admit it’s a good film but this certainly isn’t Oscar worthy film. I’m sure that there’s other underrated indie films that deserves the selection. How can this film about woman swimming in shit stand a chance against other foreign films. The selection committee has probably did the selection by throwing everything on the wall and see what sticks.

“My neighbor’s wife” is Regal film’s answer to Star Cinema’s “No other Woman”. The story revolves around two bestfriends who are embroiled in a steamy love affair with the other’s wife. They end up having wife swapping party complete with drama and all that shiz.
I couldn’t help but wince at the poor production value of the film. Like this was made for TV. Poor camera work and lousy acting. While Dennis Trillo and Jake Cuenca are known for their good acting, they act like a bunch of amateurs in this film. Carla Abellana stiff acting is quite an eyesore for me. Lovi Poe surprisingly acted well despite my general dislike for her.

Things became even more complicated when Anne doesn’t want to give up on Derek and wants their relationship ship to go beyond casual fling. When Christine learned about the affair, she decides to fight back. Derek is now torn between his mistress and his wife.
