Star Cinema is definitely the main source of Pinoy RomComs with English titles inspired by old songs revived by a local singer. Like its title and theme song, the concept of ‘Maybe This Time’ is not new. There’s the probinsyano meets kolehiyala angle where the two end up falling for each other only to be separated by someone’s intervention. Years later, they meet again. Maybe this time they’ll be a couple once and for all… Maybe This Time.
Two old friends meet again..
Ate Lenny is a big Coco Martin fan that’s why I’ve decided to treat her for a movie night on the first night of showing. This better be good!
I didn’t expect much from this movie, which is a good thing. We all know that Sarah Geronimo is the RomCom Queen of Philippine Movies (sorry Toni Gonzaga!) and we just love her antics. Coco Martin is a respected teleserye actor, but his timing in comedy is yet to be tested.
Star Cinema is the rom-com giant of the Philippine movie industry. They were able to produce a number of patterned films that make hopeless romantics like me get kilig while sitting inside the cinema.

I was able to catch the movie ‘A Moment in Time‘ with my friend Maki earlier. ABS-CBN’s Walang Hanggan is undeniably the most successful teleserye of 2012. It’s about time to test the box-office movie charisma of the Coco Martin and Julia Montes loveteam! If I remember it right, the original target showing date of A Moment in Time is somewhere between March and April. The third John Lloyd-Sarah film is not yet finished that’s why the producers decided to screen the Coco-Julia film for the love month.
Last Wednesday, I attended the Grand Press Launch of ABS-CBN’s Tayong Dalawa, the kapamilya network’s newest primetime show starring Gerald Anderson, Kim Chiu and Jake Cuenca.
I met up with the bloggers and finally met Flowell, who works with ABS-CBN Interactive. We all went to Teatrino and we were a bit overwhelmed with the set-up and all. It turned out that the show is not the usual presscon where the press eats dinner and ask questions to the actors. The show turned out to be a tribute night for Tayong Dalawa’s supporting cast that turned out to be very powerful in every sense of the word – Award-Winning, Legends, Most Respected – lahat na.
