PETA (the theatre group) is featuring the crazy-funny movie “Ded Na Si Lolo” on Friday, November 13, at 7.30 PM in their Quezon City headquarters (behind QC Sports/St. Lukes in E. Rod.). I have seen it and I guarantee you’ll have a grand time laughing all through out the film. Masaya ito! (Plus, there will be a discussion forum after the film’s showing.) It’s also the countryâ€™s official entry to the foreign language film category for next yearâ€™s Oscar Awards — o-ha!
I wanna watch Boylets! Blame it on this statement by the venerable gay film critic guru The Bakla Review:
A few critics will no doubt claw at this film and call it exploitation. With a barely legal cast doing nudity and sex, they certainly wouldn’t be so far from wrong. But it’s also audacious filmmaking, if a little rough around the edges, a by-product of the economy of style and production. Kudos to the Movie and Television Review and Classification Board (MTRCB) for approving this movie without cuts. I wouldn’t be surprised if Boylets becomes a guilty pleasure for many, except that we shouldn’t be so guilty. Years from now, when everyone is ready, Boylets will be reassessed as an unpolished pop commentary of blazing wit and feeling. (TBR Rating: A-)
Photos and the movie trailer here.
(From Yahoo/PhilStar) The â€œintimate sceneâ€ between Luis Manzano and John Lloyd Cruz as lovers in Star Cinemaâ€™s In My Life was finally shot last week on the Brooklyn Bridge, with the breathtaking Manhattan skyline as backdrop.
â€œFeel na feel nila â€˜yung eksena,â€ reported Funfareâ€™s Big Apple correspondent Edmund Silvestre (of The Filipino Reporter), â€œvery realistic, which simply means that Luis and John Lloyd are good actors because, as everybody knows, pareho silang straight.â€
The movie, directed by Olive Lamasan and also starring Vilma Santos (Luisâ€™ mom playing his mom), is Luisâ€™ most challenging. But whether or not he will finally join the ranks of John Lloyd, Piolo Pascual, Jericho Rosales, Sam Milby, Richard Gutierrez and Dingdong Dantes as big-screen leading men will be known when the film hits the theaters in September.
“because, as everybody knows, pareho silang straight.” — CHAROT!
It’s undeniable that a lot of our fellow PLUs (People Like Us) enjoy pampering. Fact is, most of us work like crazy, trying to prove our worth, and in the process earning a decent amount of money for our family and for ourselves. Once in a while, we get that feeling of entitlement towards the moolah we earn — “I deserve some pampering.” Work hard, play hard. I guess this is the fundamental driver of the “Male Massage” industry. Well, at lest that’s my take. A movie, “Heavenly Touch” uses this industry as a backdrop. And on the foreground? These:
Finally! Robinson’s IndieSine will be featuring Charliebebs Gohetia’s “The ‘Thank You’ Girls.” If you like witty gay beauty pageant lines, you’ll definitely enjoy this one. Campy to the max, a gay indie with no nudity, “The ‘Thank You’ Girls” will run from January 21 to 27, 2009. Refreshing di ba? Go mga teh!
Kris Martinez, now seemingly silent and mostly absent in the current showbiz buzz, was once upon a time a Close Up To Fame boy. The last time he was on the news was when he was promoting his movie “Green Paradise,” in November of 2007. Apparently, he was asked if he’s open to same-sex relationships, to which he answered, “Siguro, depende sa sitwasyon, depende sa tao, depende kung gaano na kami katagal magkakilala. So, kung mas kilala ko na siya as a person talaga, so why not? Bakit hindi?”
Hmmm. I can just imagine! Naughty! Hehehe!
Well and good, Mister Naughty Boy Kris Martinez. On another note, thanks for these similarly naughty pics — they literally grab your attention! Mwahs!
