In celebration of Judy Ann’s 30th birthday, she stars and produced a remarkable and ground-breaking film Ploning.

Judy Ann Santos stars as Ploning, a simple girl from Barrio Cuyo in Palawan, that embarks a simple relationship-based story to her father, lover and everybody else in their small Barrio. It may be one of Judy Ann’s best performance, a truly remarkable feat for her. Ploning conveys a simple message: Ang pag-ibig ay naghihintay at umaasa, na kahit sa anong paraan, maaari tayong magbigay ng pag-ibig sa lahat ng tao.

Its been years since I had my last movie review (Evan Almighty), but now since its vacation, I can do a lot more. Just this week, I watched two movies that opened: a local gay-themed comedy Manay Po 2: Overload; and a foreign parody Superhero Movie. But right now, I’m going to tell about Manay Po!

MANAY PO 2: OVERLOAD, Regal Entertainment

I won’t deny that I have a lot of gay friends, and I do enjoy their company – they always give me a big laugh – that’s why a lot of entertainment media uses gays as a point of comedic values of the industry. And they have not failed to entertain us. So, if you find gay humor amusing, then you can spend some time watching this film, and definitely, you won’t waste time and, of course, precious money.

One day before my Licensure Examination for Teachers, I decided to relax a bit and shrug off my nervous, so I watch a movie. There was no good movie, except for Evan Almighty. Top-billed by Steve Carell and Morgan Freeman.

The movie is the sequel for Bruce Almighty, starring Jim Carrey. But as with the usual sequels, this is better that the first film. The prosthetics used in this film is so superb that anyone can be fooled by Carell’s beard, and growing hair.

The movie revolves around a newly-elected US Congressman, who is working to “Change the World”. They just moved into a new house, and works on a bill that calls for destruction of National Parks and converting them into subdivisions. But as life moves on, strange things start to happen. Animals (all different kinds of animals) start

Ok. I think, I have already build up the fact that I am a Cinemaniac, I can watch 5 movies straight in a day. But I haven’t stated the fact that I am a Simpsons fan too. So, that’s it.

I have really worked out my schedule for me to watch this movie. Since the trailer was shown, I have made up my mind that I will definitely see this movie – – and I have, with some of my good students.

Anyway, in a question of ethics, I don’t care. I have forgotten my stature as their teacher while watching this movie, since I have laughed out (very very) loud. Nagulat nga sila eh.. Hehehe.. But they haven’t seen the best (and worst) laugh from me.

One of the most awaited movie this year has finally been released in the Philippines.

The 5th installment of Harry Potter’s Saga, comes to a near climax when Harry and his friends, Ron and Hermoine, finally meet their arch enemy, Lord Voldemort.

The movie is based from J.K. Rowling’s best seller novel, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. I would say, this is one of the best Harry Potter movie — visually effective, and the sounds are great.

But, as with the other movie versions of the first four books, there are many parts that was edited, replaced or minimize. Here are some of the points that was edited:

“Sir, what does a sponge mean in our lesson?” That is the most intriguing question that I received from my students since I announce that we will be needing “a sponge, a starfish, and a squid” in our lesson. Hehehe…

This week, I will allow them to enjoy my class, after a month of gruesome lecture, and map-readings.
