Hello Stranger The Movie, Reviews and Bits

11:26:00 PM

From series to a movie, this web series led the netizens to take on a different flavor of a love story.

During the quarantine period, people became so worrisome and restless because of the uncertainties. With this, people tried to find this to do to get them busy, and binge-watching is one of them. That is why watching movies or series online became a thing, and one series that benefited from that is Hello Stranger.

Same Recipe But a Different Flavor

I have read and watched several love stories already and for someone who has been opened to understanding that there are more than two genders, every love story is different. 'Hello Stranger' is not your usual BL series, there is this sweet and romantic side without showing much of being a BL. It's more of a thing that it is a love story regardless of gender.

The same recipe of a love story but pinched with a different flavor of being a BL and a close to the real-life-like story, where most of the viewers will relate themselves.

What's interesting about the movie is that the series has laid the grounds already. A good foundation to start. The creators jumped out of the series to bring a sweet romantic story for the movie.

The Extraordinary Ingredients

Just like in your usual adobo dish, you may find that in every region there's a specialty in cooking adobo, though Pinoys use the same ingredients, there is still a play of flavor. Some like it sweet, while some like it is a bit saucy, and others like it to be plain. For the movie 'Hello Stranger,' creators delivered an intriguing flavor of love, romance, and bitter-sweet experience to make it even noticeable.

The actors, Tony Labrusca and JC Alcantara, who are both straight by the way, did manage to bring characters who somehow have been to that situation. It's not easy but they somehow able to manifest what is expected by the viewers.

Other than the characters, one of the flavors that hit the palate of the viewers is the plot of the story. With our situation today, we, the viewers always look for something different and relatable. Being locked down and quarantined in our houses is quite a story.

The Totality

The movie is a giddy story of romance out of an unusual situation. It has captured the hearts of its audience and manages to grasp that feeling until the end, most especially the last part of the movie which everyone expects whether will happen or not.

Amnesia Love, Paolo and Yam's Love Team You Should Not Forget

12:36:00 AM

Amnesia is trauma experienced by the brain that tends to forget certain memories and that's what Amnesia Love is all about. The mind can forget but not the body. As the month of February ends and for the bitter ones or those who tends to be single or the ones left behind, perhaps it's about time to forget the past and move on but before forgetting it all, Viva Films invites you to join in the fun as award-winning actor Paolo Ballesteros plays a guy trying to discover his true identity in “Amnesia Love”.
Found unconscious by the beach in a remote island in Zambales, the character of Paolo Ballesteros is taken in by a compassionate couple (Lander Vera-Perez and Maricel Morales ). When he wakes up, he cannot remember his name nor anything else. The couple’s daughter (Yam Concepcion) is skeptical about this guy’s condition, but is left with no choice but to let him stay in their home. Romance starts to brew between the two, but this amnesia patient displays some acts that are not exactly manly, and finds himself distracted by the sight of attractive men. When somebody from his past comes to shed light on who and what he really is, will the answers bring him peace or mayhem?

With a Best Actor award each from Tokyo Film Festival and Metro Manila Film Festival under his belt, Ballesteros said in an interview that he wants to keep making movies that would make people think. “Mapag-iisip yung tao…I want a good film na worth yung pagod.”
This outlook is shared by director Albert Langitan, who has worn different hats in the world of local production. He started out as a scriptwriter, then went on to direct reality shows and teleseryes such as Impostora and Super Ma’am. It is interesting to see how Langitan’s creative eye and Ballesteros’ passion for his craft work together to bring viewers a laugh-out-loud movie that’s hard to forget.

Adding spice to the film is Viva’s versatile actress, Yam Concepcion who was first launched to stardom via Erik Matti’s adult drama “Rigodon”. “Amnesia Love” is Paolo and Yam’s reunion film. They worked together in the 2016 Blockbuster movie, “Bakit Lahat Ng Gwapo May Boyfriend” with kapuso star Dennis Trillo and the Princess of All Media, Anne Curtis.
Joining Paolo, Yam, Lander and Maricel in the cast are Polo Ravales, Vandolf Quizon, Geleen Eugenio and Sinon Loresca.

“Amnesia Love” is showing in cinemas nationwide, starting February 28, 2018.

Luck or Love, Which One Will Jericho Rosales and Bela Padilla Choose? Watch Luck At First Sight

1:31:00 AM

There's always an argument whether you're lucky or you just simply met your destiny. When it comes to love nobody knows a concrete answer about it. In my case all I know is that it comes like a thief in the night. It stoles the beating of your heart for someone else. So whether you're in luck or not in love only fate knows but for this summers romcom movie from Viva Films and N2 Production perhaps luck got something to say.

From the team that gave "Camp Sawi" with its mysterious camp and from the director of movies like "Always Be My Maybe" and "Walang Forever", come this year's most enchanting romance-comedy movie, "LUCK AT FIRST SIGHT". The very first pairing of Asian Dram King, Jericho Rosales and Primetime TV Gem, Bela Padilla on a big screen in a Joyce Bernal production.

The movie is about the characters of Joma Labayen which is played by Jericho and Diane Dela Cruz played by Bela. Joma Labayen, a down-on his-luck guy who believes that a "life-charm" could help make for him a rosy existence despite the drudgery of everyday living. By accident and by some stroke of fate, he meets Diane Dela Cruz (Bela), who he thinks is his "life charm". Little did he know that their encounters would lead him to the toughest choice his heart will ever make: Luck or Love.

Diane, however, is no sucker for stories of luck and/or life charms. She is a firm believer of love and how romance sheds light, beauty and happiness to one's being. Their partnership proves lucky enough until they discover that choosing between luck and love can be a tough pick.

Will Joma and Diane make the right choice? Will their love story ends in happily ever after? Find out when "LUCK AT FIRST SIGHT" casts its magical spell in cinemas nationwide starting May 3, only from VIVA Films and N2 Productions.

A romantic aura that's binding them together. The sweetness, the sparks in theirs eyes, and the cute laughs that they have makes them a great couple.

BaKit Hindi Ka Crush Ng Crush Mo, Another RomCom Hits

12:03:00 AM

Have you ever asked this question to yourself “Bakit Hindi Ka Crush ng Crush Mo?” (Why Your Crush Didn't Have a Crush On You?) Perhaps yes and perhaps not but for many hopeless romantic this is just one of the many. I too, were once asking this question, of course the book wasn't printed that time so it's one of the question that I search for the answer, hahaha.

Now, it's great that straight to the point a book like this from “the Internet Action Star”, Ramon Bautista, was published and read by many teenagers of this generation. A guide book to answer most of the questions in life of youngsters and perhaps even the not so-old bachelor and bachelorette who's still searching for the right one.
