Pelikulang Pilipino

HORROR-SUSPENSE movies used to be on top of my ranking for favorite movie genres. My indicator that the movie I am watching is making me ill at ease on my seat is the unusual sweating of the palm of my hands and the soles of my feet.

So when a horror movie comes along, expect me to be among those who queue up at the box-office alone or with friends.

However, when Amityville: The Awakening was shown, no sweaty palms and soles came to be. Sigh.

The new tandem of Joshua Garcia and Julia Barretto or JoshLia gets its test for crowd-drawing power as the movie I Love You To The Moon and Back gets shown on Wednesday.

Will the tandem prove to be the next big thing in the tradition of KathNiel, LizQuen and JaDine?

Being shown nationwide with the other entries to the Pista ng Pelikulang Pilipino is a rare chance for a movie using the Visayan-Cebuano language in almost its entirety.

Thus, as an avid supporter of Visayan movies, I have high hopes that Patay Na Si Hesus will somehow be instrumental in the revival of the Visayan movie industry.

This of course depends on the patronage of moviegoers, Visayan-speaking or otherwise. Anyway, the Visayan language, in my own opinion, is quite easy to comprehend so we hope viewers from other parts of the country will watch it.

I had seen the trailer of ABS-CBN’s new show, Little Big Shots, several times so that I was prodded to watch the show’s opening last weekend. Fortunately, I was not disappointed.

The kids are witty, intelligent, quick and, most of all, funny. Host Billy Crawford was a major factor in the outcome of the maiden episode.

Billy was so natural in motivating the kids.
