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: 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.

Movie Review: GAYDAR

Paano kung lahat ng lalaki na nagugustuhan mo ay bakla pala?

Gumagana ba ang Gaydar mo?

Gumagana ba ang Gaydar mo?

Sounds familiar? Well, I was once a girl who tend to fall for closet gay men. You cannot blame me. Most gay men that I met in the past are good-looking, responsible and talented. The ideal straight men are either in a relationship or married. What to do?

GAYDAR is a romantic-comedy film under the direction of Alvin Yapan, who is known for directing the award-winning Cinemalaya films Ang Panggagahasa ni Fe and Ang Sayaw ng Dalawang Kaliwang Paa. I think Gaydar is his most ‘mainstream’ and ‘fun’ film to date. The lead character in the movie is Tina played by Pauleen Luna. I’m glad that finally this Eat Bulaga mainstay is given a lead role in a comedy film. I loved her performance as Giselle Sanchez in GMA News TV’s Wagas.
