Nick Joaquin's May Day Eve

ViARE, a student theater organization, of the University of Asia and the Pacific will be staging Nick Joaquin's "May Day Eve" as adapted for the stage and directed by two time Palanca Award Winner, Juan Ekis.
It tells a story of a family where love and bitterness is passed on by Agueda and Badoy's encounter one May eve in front of the mirror. There they saw their future spouses in the form of a witch and a devil by means of a ritual; their hearts were eaten and their blood, drank. They fell in love but their love never met. That is the curse they brought to the generations after them: to fall in love yet live in bitterness.
We all know Nick Joaquin, how his creations have been planted in the minds of many and left us all wondering how his mind works.  This play had the set, the actors, awareness and the perfect silence gave an eerie feel.  The actors showed professionalism over the play.  This play was very hard to portray since this leaned towards the dark side, and it has indeed left a gloomy feel as we have finished the play.

It was a shame though that some were not able to project their voices well. It had its moments, instances where you just need to stand up and get the feel of the intense emotions going through the play, then sit down and ponder upon how society has changed, where beliefs and misconceptions still Uhaunt our minds.

Wall Street 2 : Money Never Sleeps.... movie review

Emerging from a lengthy prison stint, Gordon Gekko (Michael Douglas) finds himself on the outside of a world he once dominated.  Looking to repair his damaged relationship with his daughter, Gekko forms an alliance with her fiance Jacob (Shia LaBeouf), and Jacob begins to see him as a father figure.  But Jacob learns the hard way that Gekko -- still a master manipulator and player -- is after something very different from redemption.

I was expecting this for quite some time now.  And I was really eager how this would play out considering we have brought back Michael Douglas to reprise the role of Gordon Gekko, an idol of his time and jailed because of insider trading.  And 2 more top caliber actors in the names of Josh Brolin and Frank Langella, and a teen actor on his prime, Shia LaBeouf (Transformers).

I was invited by 20th Century Fox to the advance screening last Sept. 23, the movie was a little more than 2 hours, and I admit that there were some terms used that I was not familiar with since I was not in the stock market sector and even though I do invest in some stocks, I let my broker do the dirty work for me.  So basically I am very new to this stuff.

The story revolves around the great stock market fall and bail out of 2008.  How the US government used their national treasury to bail out companies so that the economy would not fail, they do clearly show that all of it was caused by wrong speculations and the economy can be prone to manipulations of certain individuals which may lead to bankruptcies take for example with the case of Lehman Brothers.

I personally liked the story line which is totally not connected to the first movie except for Mr. Gordon Gekko (Michael Douglas) himself.  It did have its moments with a special cameo appearance from a familiar face in the first movie.  I did feel that the movie was a little dragging, I would not doubt the direction of the great Oliver Stone (Director), but I felt he was just trying to match the first movie which he also directed.

By the way the first movie came out in 1987, in case you might want to research on it.  If you have watched the first film good for you, actually I just finished it a few minutes ago and I would say I like the first film better with regards to the storyline, that is why this review took a while longer since I wanted to get the feel of the first movie before I comment on the new one showing this September 29.

If you do have time get rental or maybe you have a copy of the 1st movie in your shelves do take time to view it one more time before heading to the cinema for this new one, trust me it helps.  I recommend this movie to the thinkers, it has its twists and turns, and yes deceptions and manipulations, you are always left guessing what will happen next.  Anyways hope you do watch this at your favorite cinemas brought to us by 20th Century Fox.

Thank you 20th Century Fox for this advanced screening and to Ms. Mae.

Watch Taiwan Films for FREE at Shangri-la Plaza Mall

The endless pleasures of film and the best of Taiwan cinema awaits avid moviegoers as premier lifestyle destination Shangri-La Plaza presents the first-ever Taiwan Film Festival, which will run from September 23 to 28 at Shang Cineplex Cinema 4.

Also made possible by the Taipei Economic and Cultural Office in the Philippines, the Taiwan Film Fest features an impressive line-up of some of today’s must-watch Taiwanese films, such as Cape No. 7 (2008). The biggest box office hit in Mandarin Chinese history, it is a moving love story that touches on Taiwan’s history and way of life through the story of young man Aga, who leaves for Taipei to follow his singing dream. Together with other musicians, he becomes part of a band that eventually becomes an incredible musical sensation.

Chocolate Rap (2006) centers on the tough world of break dancing through the eyes of dancer Choco, who singlehandedly outdoes 6 b-boys and is taken under the wing of renowned manager Pachinko. Under his guidance, Choco steadily climbs the ladder to dance success—until a car accident changes his life for good. He then proceeds to teach young dancer King Kong and in the process regains his confidence—but eventually finds himself having to face his young protégé in the biggest battle of his life.

Oliver Stone lashes at Institutionlized sharks of Wall Street

Michael Douglas is back in his Oscar®-winning role as Gordon Gekko whose iconic “Greed is good” mantra and daring corporate raids made him a rock star of financial titans.  No longer the king of Wall Street, Gekko emerges from Federal prison after serving eight years.   While away, his wife has divorced him, his son has died, and his one remaining family member, his daughter Winnie (Carey Mulligan), won’t speak to him.

Resolute to win back the love of his daughter and determined to reestablish his position as Wall Street’s most powerful broker – Gekko joins forces with Jake Moore (Shia LaBeouf) who is engaged to Winnie. Jake personifies the brilliant technologically savvy individuals who by 2008 were making millions before they turned thirty.  Gekko uses Jake to gain access to Winnie – and Jake seeks Gekko’s advice in gaining the upper hand over Bretton James, a ruthless investment banker whom Jake holds responsible for his mentor and firm’s destruction.

Gekko’s imprisonment taught him many lessons, says Douglas.  “He’s had a lot of time to think. He can see much more clearly.  He’s bearish on what’s been transpiring in the world of finance.  Gekko is able to look at the problems objectively and he can see how screwed we are.”
When Gekko is released from prison, he is determined to reestablish his position as a Wall Street’s most powerful broker.  But he’s looking for more than re-accumulating vast sums of money; “Gekko wants to be acknowledged,” Douglas explains.  “It’s one of the reasons he’s written a book.”
