Top 12 Lip Sync Battle Philippines Season 1 Performances

LIP SYNC BATTLE PHILIPPINES is currently on their second season. As a fan of the show, I witnessed some underwhelming performances. On the other hand, there are devoted participants who took an effort in rehearsing and memorizing their songs.

Movie Review: Somebody to Love

Last Thursday, I did a bit of Pinoy movie marathon. I haven’t blogged about my Cinemalaya 2014 experience and even a review of other movies I’ve seen this year. I may have imposed a travel ban supposedly to save up, but I end up spending money on watching movies and I don’t regret it.

Somebody to Love is a star-studded romantic-comedy film under Regal Films. The main reason why I went to the cinema is the director. I’m a big fan of Jose Javier Reyes’ chick flicks and I consider ‘One Night Only’ as an underrated film.

The movie takes place in a span of one week. It’s a story of different people looking for love.

Iza Calzado as Marga Castro is my favorite in the movie. Her character reminds me of two celebrities who wouldn’t keep still unless they make it in the headlines 😉  Iza was able to portray her role with such grace yet you can see her desperation for fame and exposure too. It’s fun to watch her in this type of role. A stand-alone Marga Castro movie soon, please?

Movie Review: So It’s You

First attempt: Originally planned to watch the movie in Manila alone when one of my friends convinced me to watch ‘Last Vegas’ instead so we can go to the cinema together when we’re both available.

One of my favorite moments in the movie. Sana ako na lang si Carla :))

Second Attempt: My friend Ruby and I were already in Robinson’s Pangasinan when the lady at the cinema told me that Cinema 1 encountered a technical glitch and that the movie won’t be shown that day. I even asked if they can move the film to Cinema 2, 3 or 4, but they couldn’t do it since Spiderman, Godzilla and a horror film had moviegoers on it already.

I was a bit frustrated because I really want to watch it. I am not a super duper big fan of any of the cast members, but the trailer is just too cool! I want to watch a romance-comedy and Jun Lana is one of my favorite directors, whether that’s a mainstream or indie movie project.

Third Attempt: Spent the weekend in Davao for the Davao Food Appreciation Tour. I was pleased when I saw ‘So It’s You’ on the list of movies shown at SM Lanang Premier. The gang decided to watch ‘The Other Woman’ on Monday night and I was determined to watch ‘So It’s You’ on Tuesday afternoon before my flight back to Manila.  What is dedication? Haha!

So there. I bought my ticket and went straight to a vacant seat.
