Zombadings 1: Patayin sa Shokot si Remington

I haven’t seen a lot of Pinoy movies in the past few years, and as far as I know, I’ve seen only the following last year: The Road and My Househusband (both in TriNoma), and Eugene Domingo’s Ang Babae sa Septic Tank and Vice Ganda’s Praybeyt Benjamin (both through the free DVD given to me by my suki in Circle C). It’s a shame, really, but I think I lost interest a long time ago. The good thing is, all these movies I’ve seen are really good movies (though Praybeyt Benjamin is overrated), and I highly recommend that everyone watch those movies I’ve mentioned. In addition, I also recommend Zombadings 1: Patayin sa Shokot si Remington, which I just finished watching today. Do you know that an entire movie is now available for viewing in YouTube? Yes, that’s how I’ve seen Zombadings, and THANK YOU so much, whoever you are who posted the movie, it’s something I almost missed.
Each Zombadings star shimmered with curious distinction. If I’m not mistaken, this is the first major role of Martin Escudero, a StarStruck alumnus, who portrayed the lead character Remington with aptness and meticulousness. I thank his director for bringing out the talent in this guy. Lauren Young and Kerbie Zamora were both perfect for the role, and Eugene Domingo is, well, Eugene Domingo. Even with minimal lines, her presence alone can steal the spotlight from anyone else’s in the movie. Her character, a grieving mother who has an unexplained taste for skating, is just REFRESHING. It’s brilliant, really.

It’s great, too, that the movie took place in a real town, which is Lucban, Quezon. There’s the infamous Pahiyas Festival and pansit which was mentioned during the latter part of the movie. And since this is a gay-horror-comedy movie, Zombadings didn’t fell short of hot men—ancient (Daniel Fernando and Leandro Baldemor) and upcoming hunks (Martin Escudero and Kerbie Zamora), strippers (macho dancers), sexy zombies and killers, construction workers, among others.

I mentioned earlier that we will visit the Cagbalete Island this weekend, but it turned out that it's actually scheduled for next weekend, so it's just perfect because my matampuhing buddy is celebrating his day today naman pala. Anyway, not related to the topic, that's Alexander Rico in the picture.

Philippine Azkals In Trouble

Philippine Azkals midfielder Lexton Moy (see picture below) and second striker Angel Guirado Aldeguer (see picture above, 12) are facing sexual harassment case filed by Asian Football Confederation (AFC) match commissioner Cristy Ramos that might cause their football careers. Ramos, the daughter of former President Fidel V. Ramos, filed a complaint before the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Disciplinary Committee against Guirado and Moy for allegedly disrespecting and sexually harassing her when she inspected their accreditation cards and kits shortly before the friendly game between the Azkals and the Malayan Tigers on February 29. The AFC's disciplinary committee, which follows FIFA regulations, is composed of officials from various Asian countries, has the power to suspend or ban players from taking part in official matches and impose penalties on erring teams and their officials.

Pick One Meme: The Cruzes

What's keeping Robin Padilla so uptight?

For someone who has been exposed to show business almost his entire life, I find it hard to believe that Robin Padilla remained distant or intolerant of gay rights. His older brother, Rustom Padilla (now BB Gandanghari), outed through the ABS-CBN reality show Pinoy Big Brother in 2006, and I thought Robin supported this decision as he praised Rustom's confession in national television. It was only recently when I found out that the action star is not really in good terms with BB Gandanghari. The state of shock lasted for years, and that’s hard to understand. I know that Robin is practicing Islam, and it could be possible that his religious belief overpowers his personal choice to accept the reality that his birth brother is gay and here to stay. It must have been difficult for him to make that choice between religion and personal ethics, but his brother Rustom must have been through an even more difficult phase in his life before he decided to make that confession and even after. I hope that at the end of the day, Robin will choose to acknowledge that his brother Rustom and the rest of the gay people are also sons and daughters of the one God he believe in. For some reason, this made me love Adam Levine (of Maroon 5) more, an outspoken, gay rights advocate, who also has an openly gay brother.

Here I Come, Cagbalete!

My travel buddy is again plotting a trip this weekend to somewhere I’ve never visited yet. The place is called Cagbalete (see picture above), located in the province of Quezon, and since I think none of my acquaintances, friends or relatives ever mentioned this place before, it somehow sounded vaguely familiar to me. Maybe because of the word balete, which is the Filipino name to that fig tree with exaggerated roots all over its trunks. I heard rumors when I was a kid associating this kind of tree to supernatural beings like, among others, maligno, diwata, engkanto (environmental spirits that have the ability to appear in human form) and other ghostly creatures. It is thought to be their home. While the idea of it fascinates me sometimes, there is a part of me that hopes Cagbalete is not associated to any of these. I just want to explore the place, appreciate the beauty of Mother Nature and take pictures. I will definitely Google the place later when I get home.

Robin Padilla finds it hard to accept BB Gandanghari

Has Robin Padilla accepted the fact that his older brother Rustom Padilla now prefers to be called BB Gandanghari? “Darating tayo diyan isang araw, sa ngayon hindi kami okay ni Rustom,” Robin said at a press conference for his newest endorsement, Moneygram, at Crowne Plaza on Wednesday, March 21. Robin emphasized that he and BB are different in their beliefs and the path they choose to take. “Bilang kapatid, oo (pwedeng magkasundo), pero sa paniniwala, magkaiba kami sa tinatahak,” Robin explains. Robin admits his family is still “in a state of shock” now that that BB is back in town and sporting a totally different look. It is his wife, Mariel Rodriguez, who is trying her best to unite the family by planning a reunion. “Si Mariel ang nagplaplano lahat niyan. Gusto niya nga ng reunion kasi bumalik nga si Rustom (BB Gandanghari). Gusto niya magsama-sama kami,” Robin revealed. He added that his wife is very close to his mother, Eva Carino, who always confides in Mariel. “Si Mariel ginagawa niya lahat iyan kasi gusto niya masaya ako. Para siyang naging daan ng pamilya para magkausap-usap. Kasi ang nangyari, shocking pa eh. Lahat kami nasa state of shock pa. Lalo na ako,” Robin quipped.
