Cinemalaya 2012 Review: Emmanuel Palo's Sta. Nina

26 July 2012 2:34 AM, PDT | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

Set in the bleak plains of Pampanga, Emmanuel Palo's Sta. Nina tells the story of Paulino (Coco Martin) who suddenly unearths the coffin of his daughter ten years after her death. Despite the length of time the coffin has been buried, her daughter remains uncorrupted, seemingly miraculously unchanged. Rumors of the marvel start to spread, causing several townspeople, including the province's sickly governor, to flock Paulino's house to be cured of their afflictions. More than that, the return of Paulino's daughter again unravels his sins from the past and his unfinished efforts for redemption. Palo's crafting is exquisite. The film is beautifully photographed. The greys of the lahar-covered landscape evoke the very emptiness that confounds the people that manage to make a living despite the »

Review: Jerome Pobocan's Born To Love You

3 June 2012 10:51 AM, PDT | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

Jerome Pobocan's Born to Love You is hardly anything special. A weepy romance with bits of comedy sprinkled sparingly all throughout, the film aspires nothing but mediocrity. It is plotted awkwardly. The story, about an angst-ridden photographer (Coco Martin) who suddenly falls for a tour guide (Angeline Quinto) while wrestling with issues regarding his family, is stretched via convolutions and coincidences that both arrive out of and lead to nowhere. The pleasures it provides are but momentary, barely enough to repay the superhuman endurance that it asks to be invested.As just another one of those run-of-the-mill romances that Star Cinema churns out for a quick buck, it bears the same problems as those that came before it that left no dent on the genre »

Globizness: our round-up of celebrity scandal around the world

16 March 2012 5:05 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

British celebritites don't have the monopoly on bad behaviour. Wait till you meet this lot


Veena Malik is officially auditioning for a husband. You might recall that the Pakistani model/actress/liberal-doses-of-whatever was the Indian FHM's cover star last December who caused a bit of a ruckus by a) nude-ing up for her photoshoot and b) suggesting that the Isi, Pakistan's intelligence services agency, has some dangerously crackpot tendencies. The bare cheek.

Anyway, Malik's upcoming reality show, Swayamvar, has received over 70,000 submissions from men applying for her hand in marriage – only 16 of whom will be chosen to compete in the programme to share a lifetime's love, happiness and millions of rupees. On her future soulmate, Malik told Globiz: "He can't be poor, every girl needs flowers and diamonds." Isn't she worried about seeming a touch shallow? "I don't understand the question." A few minutes of jokey explanation and confused »
