Always Interfering

Image courtesy of www.wikihow.com

Filipino culture has a very peculiar feature in which parents believe in having a license that would always allow them to treat their adult children like kids. For example, parents would always have to be consulted prior to settling down and if the son or daughter does not, expect consequences. Successful celebrities are not spared from following their parents even though they are already of age and highly experienced.

Over the years, Domineering Personality (DP) has created the image of a very strict mother to her celebrity children. Hence, whatever DP says, the children have to obey. When Sultry Celebrity (SC) decided to enter showbiz, DP made sure she was with SC at every step of the way. Other than overseeing her career, DP also has a say in the lovelife of SC. Any distraction in the career of SC means that DP will lose the opportunity to earn because SC could always prioritize love over career.

This relationship developed as SC herself went through various heartaches. Finally, after having several lovers, SC finally seemed to have found The One (TO). As expected, TO was subjected to tirades coming from DP. This time, however, SC sided with TO.

One day, the public was surprised that SC and TO separated, which seemed unexpected as SC was in love. Meanwhile, TO was seen clubbing, while SC was working. Thus, this alleged breakup raised many eyebrows, as there seems to be no reason for the couple to part. However, there seems to be good basis for the breakup. Allegedly, DP had a hand in the break up. Despite her fierce words against TO, she managed to still charm her way to him. DP even asked TO to buy an item for her abroad. As expected, TO bought the said item. Worse, DP would even ask money from TO, and when it came to the due date, she allegedly did not bother to pay at all. These transactions were supposed to be kept secret, and SC should not know at all.

As time passed, SC found out and confronted DP. Yet, her relationship with TO also suffered, which allegedly resulted in their separation. Thus, DP had her say in the relationship of a very adult SC. The good news, however, is that SC and DP always mend their relationship, and SC has been spotted with TO. Perhaps, all is well.

Movie Review: My Rebound Girl

Image courtesy of www.movies.pinoyph.net

Alex Gonzaga, Joseph Marco
Director: Emmanuel dela Cruz
MTRCB Rating: PG
Released by: Regal Entertainment Inc.

The love story centers on Rocky’s (Alex) misfortune in her relationships - that of being a consistent rebound girl by her exes. She soon gets tired of her predicament and decides to set rules for herself so as not to be trapped again in such a situation.  

Rocky and her friends are setting up their coffee shop business and everyone takes pains in the nitty-gritty details to make it a close to perfect venture.Trying to find that perfect coffee blend takes a major turn in the story. 

In comes Rich, a coffee farm grower who wants to salvage their family farm from being sold by his mother. He strikes a deal with Rocky’s group to be its coffee supplier and partner at the same time. 

Both Rocky and Rich have just been through their breakups from their respective exes and despite provocation, they try to avoid falling for each other. However, it proves to be easier said than done, as they soon begin to show interest towards each other.

Deliberate or not, it is easy to note that Rocky’s character seems not far-fetched from Alex Gonzaga’s real image and persona. For the most part of the movie, Rocky keeps shouting and making faces, and shouting and making faces again - it’s a challenge to enjoy and be entertained by this movie. Save for the concluding part, there is hardly any scene that Alex’s character is sober. Indeed, there’s a big difference between being cute and being annoying.  

Compounding it even more is her bossy character towards her business partners. Rocky seems to have the last say in everything, from the coffee blend to the coffee shop’s paint and interior - everything has to conform to her taste. Now who wants a business partner like that?

My Rebound Girl as per its press release says the movie will inspire people to not give up on love so easily despite the odds. Rich and Rocky are supposed to have fallen for each other but it’s hardly felt as the movie fails to capture that ’romance ’. Making it worse is when his ex, Sophia wants him back and he immediately succumbs to her spell, totally forgetting his commitment to Rocky. What inspiration can be had from that?

The movie is a bore, in fact, most scenes are filled with lengthy and irrelevant scenarios that you struggle not to fall asleep while watching.

Expectedly, Marco’s well-defined abs got its exposure in the movie, but it can only go so far. It cannot salvage the character that is lacking in his performance. For one, he is ill-focused and so self –conscious. It takes more than the physical to get things right – and that’s a no brainer.

Had the movie been carefully well-thought-out, the viewers would have been treated to a fresh-faced and unconventional love team, a breather from the ones we are constantly fed and conditioned to like. Unfortunately, Joseph Marco and Alex Gonzaga just don’t have the chemistry to pull it off.

 If at all, the beautiful, refreshing shots at a coffee farm in Benguet prove to be the movie’s redemption.   

"My Rebound Girl " also stars Martin Escudero, Mitoy Yonting, Alora Sasam, Nathalie Hart, Pinky Amador, Racquel Villavicencio, Anna Vicente, Carl Guevara, Helga Krapf, Lawrence Yap. Now showing in cinemas

Repost: Angel Locsin Admits a Third Party Caused a Failed Relationship

Angel Locsin admitted that she already had a relationship whose breakup was caused by a third party.

The actress made the statement during the press conference of her upcoming film “The Third Party” where her character was replaced by her former boyfriend with another man.

“Oo meron [akong relationship na third party ang naging dahilan ng breakup] pero kung kanino man, sa akin na lang iyon,” she briefly said.

Locsin was also asked how she would react if in real life, her boyfriend replaces her with another man.

“Siyempre masakit 'yun pero wala naman sa gender 'yun. 'Yung fact na napalitan ka, masakit naman talaga. Pero may tinatawag na moving on so 'yun na lang. Kasi malay mo sila naman ang para sa isa’t isa talaga,” she said.

While their movie will tackle a plot that’s not commonly tackled, Locsin is confident the moviegoers are going to like it.

“Wala naman kaming ginawang controversial dito. Sa amin lang, nilatag namin 'yung kwento kung ano ang nakikita natin, kung meron tayong kaibigan na in a relationship na pareho ang gender, parang wala ka namang ire-react sa totoong buhay. Ganun lang din naman,” she said.

“Pinapakita lang namin dito kung paano ba magmahal, paano ba ang relationship, paano ba ang samahan, paano ba ang pakikitungo sa kapwa mo,” she added.

Aside from Locsin, the movie also stars Sam Milby and Zanjoe Marudo

Produced by Star Cinema, “The Third Party” will open in cinemas on October 12.
