Ang Babaeng Humayo

The Toronto Film Festival headed opus of Lav Diaz is getting a lot of attention after it won Best Film at the prestigious Venice Film Festival over the weekend. For one, the film was an underdog as cinephiles were not even expecting the landmark victory. Now that the film has received the nods of industry luminaries, Ang Babae... is yet to convince moviegoers that it deserves more audience. Meantime, there are talks for the film to be screened at the 2016 MMFF. Let’s see if local audience would come in droves to see it. 

Isabelle Daza

Wedding bells were not heard of until her union with long-time boyfriend Adrien Semblat went viral. The pair walked down the aisle together as man and wife on Sept. 10 in a private ceremony that took place in Italy. And, just like the recent weddings we have witnessed, Belle’s was rather classy with less fanfare. It definitely defied the materialistic standards of the modern-day celebrity weddings.

Allen Dizon

We’re not a big fan of this actor who jumpstarted his film career as a flesh baring bit player and then ventured into music via the all-male sexy group called Viva Hotmen. But, as the saying goes, that was just his stepping-stone. Now, it’s safe to say that Dizon has been rediscovered almost two decades after he dipped his toes in showbiz. His recent win at the Salento Film Fest in Italy is his validation. In fact, the recognition is his third best actor win (from an international award giving body) in just a span of two years.

Claudine Barretto

The actress made a big announcement on her Instagram – her “much-awaited return” to showbiz and the launching of a self-authored booked. First of all, we didn’t know she could write. We would have to read the book first before we could recommend it. Otherwise we’d think some ghost writer was just hired to do it for her. On the other hand, her announcement of showbiz comeback startled us a bit. Didn’t she already announce her comeback many times already?

Kris Aquino

Her transfer to GMA Network has been trivialized and serialized to the point that everyone was already asking why couldn’t she just keep quiet and leave. It’s true that television may never be the same without her, but won’t it be better? But since she will resume showbiz work before the month ends, our daily dose of Kris Aquino is really far from over.

Pinoy Boyband Supertsar

The concept of the show isn’t new at all, since the original is also a rip off of another reality search. Nonetheless, the debut of ABS-CBN’s new show has been getting a lot of positive feedback. If only the judges could make intelligible comments, the show would have been part of our must-see list. The judges must understand that they are there to be the authority and not act like cheap fanatics.
