Hmmm.. how true that some artists in showbiz including directors and writers are planning to invite Mocha Uson in a “heart-to-heart” talk cum lecture about her crusade in the business?
According to sources, these artists do not want to put the controversial personality in public shame as the invitation will merely encourage a “better” dialogue among parties.
“She calls herself an artist and she has this very good opportunity (as MTRCB board Member) to be a good link between our arts and what the government can do to us. We want to define and establish respect in both grounds through her vigilance and activism in the social media. Instead of looking or taking her issues or stands on showbiz stories to the negative ground and battle, why don’t we look at the more positive and beneficial side of the issue? Siguro naman ay hindi pa grabeng pumapasok sa sistema niya ang lakas niya sa gobyerno if ever such is true,” part of our sources’ statement.
Such words stemmed from Mocha’s reactions and replies to the now controversial Ipaglaban Mo episode on its being “abusive and exploitative.”
We feel for both Maja Salvador and Paulo Avelino, lead stars of I’m Drunk, I love You that was pitted against Star Cinema’s My Ex and Why swith Liza Soberano and Enrique Gil of LizQuen fame.
Just like the LizQuen, Maja and Paulo are also contract stars of ABS-CBN and yet, their social media posts about the fate that their movie suffered at the box-office could be sensed as somewhat complaining and feeling the “influence” of the big network’s marketing genius.
When their movie opened on the same day the LizQuen starrer posted huge success at the tills, they complained about the disparity on the number of theaters assigned to their movie.
“Yung movie nila (LizQuen) showing sa daan-daang mga sinehan nationwide and has even bookings abroad, eh yun sa amin, ni wala pang 50? Then after a day, nabawasan pa, until nabalitaan nga naming halos nasa sampung sinehan na lang ito ipinalalabas,” Maja posted in her social media account.
“Mas malala pa pala ang nangyari sa mga pelikula at mga tao sa likod nito na nagbigay parangal sa BANSA natin. Anong nangyari?,” Paulo cried as he tried to relate their film’s lackluster showing to what “maindie producers” are experiencing in terms of theater’s share. The actor asked the Film Development Council Head Liza Dino who replied, “We are working relentlessly to find solutions. Mahirap pag walang batas. Gayunpaman, ginagawan namin ng paraan.”
Whatever that means, the moviegoers have spoken and obviously chosen the formulaic merchandise of the powerful network.
Can Maja and Paulo blame the audience who trooped the cinemas, or the network’s power to promote, perhaps the timing of their showing, which also coincided with Hollywood’s release of blockbusters?
Those who have seen Maja’s and Paulo’s movie, all agree that it is better crafted than that of LizQuen’s, which to date has earned more than P150 million and still counting.
We can’t comment on that as we still have to see it, but we also would like to say that LizQuen’s film isn’t a bad one. It’s “feel-good” quality does wonders even to people like me.
Maja and Paulo may have proven their acting mettle, what with their acting awards, but there’s no doubt that the younger tandem of LizQuen has wider audience reach who all feel the “kilig” more and better.
And we are proud to have felt such “kilig” when we saw it in a fully-filled movie house, which by the way, has moviegoers that collectively enjoy hearing and watching each’s “ahhs and ohhs” reactions inside the cinema hahahaha!
Now tell me, how do you solve such a problem?
Had the beautiful Sofia Andres answered the questions more intelligently, she could be hotter in the news today.
We are referring to her opinion on her “ardent suitor” Diego Loyzaga’s tirade/rant in the social media against his father Cesar Montano.
“He has big problems. He is bothered and disturbed as far as I am seeing it, but I cannot blame him for what he did. Siguro po ay umabot na sa hangganan yung pagtitiis niya. I can only speak based on what I know pero hindi ko po masasabi kung tama o mali yung ginawa niya. I also don’t know po his father dahil si Diego lang naman po ang nakakausap ko. But I wish and pray, ma-solve po nila in time and that both may find understanding and respect,” the young actress related.
Said statement she shared during the presscon of Puwera Usog, which she is the lead star.
Though Diego is not part of the Regal Films horror flick, Sofia being Diego’s reported “special girl,” has found the perfect promo blitz to stir more items as the film gets nearer to its March 8 play date.
Sayang nga naman ang mileage na malilikha ng isyu kung dededma lang siya noh?
