Movie Review: When The Love is Gone

Gabby Concepcion’s return in the Philippine entertainment scene was a big deal way back. Why? Aside from his matinee idol status in the 80’s, his personal life is also controversial. The public were eager to know what happened to him after he turned his back from fame. For anyone who is bankable and interesting, leaving showbusiness is a big deal.

His showbiz comeback is considered successful. He is an in-demand teleserye actor and is even paired with leading ladies that are close to his daughter’s age. There were rumours before that his movie comeback will be via the remake of the 80’s film “Nagalit ang Buwan sa Haba ng Gabi”. What happened was he and daughter KC Concepcion starred in a movie for Father’s Day. I am not sure if they met the expected box-office gross, but the movie wasn’t as markable as the producers wished.

Cristine Reyes is one of the hottest stars in the biz. Just like Gabby, she is bankable and controversial. She entered showbiz via Starstruck and for a time, she was just known as “Ara Mina’s Little Sister”. When she turned 18, she embraced her sexiness and began accepting daring roles. When she moved to ABS-CBN from GMA, she played the title role in Eva Fonda and that’s where her talent was seen by the masses. There was a time wherein she was crowned as box-office queen with Anne Curtis when they did “No Other Woman“, where she played as the legal wife.

This time, Cristine Reyes is the mistress. And what a fierce mistress she is!

The Resurrection of the Pridyider

Shake, Rattle and Roll is the most successful movie franchise of Regal Films. By December, Mother Lily’s movie outfit will be producing their 15th SRR Trilogy! It seems like some kids do really want to spend the Christmas season by laughing and screaming at the movie house while eating popcorn and sipping soda.

I’m too early for Metro Manila Film Festival, huh? The movie I am about to share have nothing to do with the MMFF 2012, but it is one of the trademarks of the Shake, Rattle and Roll series.

Andi Eigenmann aims to scare (or seduce?) in the new version of Pridyider

PRIDYIDER. Do you still remember that episode from the first Shake, Rattle and Roll movie under the direction of Ishmael Bernal? The lead star during that year is Janice de Belen. I can say that aside from her soap opera as a teen star, Janice is known as one of the horror favorites in the 80’s.

After so many years, the PRIDYIDER is back to scare kids of the new generation. I remember how that episode gave me goosebumps as a kid when I saw it on TV (ire-remake din kaya yung Undin part? LOL). The new version is directed by Rico Ilarde, who received a lot of positive reviews for his Cinema One Originals film ‘Altar’.
