Watching Movie : Step Up

I didn’t do much yesterday so I decide to watch the movie entitled STEP UP. The main cast of the movie is Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan. I considered Step Up as one of my favorite movies because it is romantic and it includes dancing, which I enjoyed to watch. Dancing is not my passion, but I salute those people who can dance really well because they have this fascinating talent that not everyone can have it. Though I’m not a ballerina like Jenna, but watching people who can perform some dance or ballet, makes me happy already.

Summary of the movie:

An aspiring ballerina from a wealthy family learns some lessons about both dancing and life from a roughneck with soul in this teen drama. Tyler Gage (Channing Tatum) grew up on the wrong side of the tracks in a rough section of Baltimore, and has been in and out of trouble with the law most of his life. Finding himself before the judge yet again, Tyler is sentenced to 200 hours of community service, and he ends up mopping floors at the Maryland School of the Arts. Tyler catches the eye of Nora (Jenna Dewan), a gifted ballet student who is trying to incorporate hip-hop moves into her classical routines. None of Nora’s fellow students seem to be on the same page as her, but Tyler is a talented street dancer with strength, moves, and enthusiasm. Despite the misgivings of the school’s administrators, Nora persuades Tyler to team up with her for a major class project. Tyler gains a new self-respect as he gives in to the discipline of the dance academy, but he wonders if this new opportunity means turning his back on who he really is. Matters become all the more complicated when Tyler and Nora realize they’re falling in love.

The Ending of BOF

Yesterday was the ending of BOF or known as Boys Over Flower, a Korean series that hit in the Philippines. I was so happy and super “kilig” when I saw the finale of this series because it’s very nice and it’s happy ending. Finally the 2 lovers, namely Jandi and Jun Pyo end up with full of love and trust, believing that at the end they will still be together and it happened. After all the rains that pour over in their relationship, it follows with a beautiful sunshine that brightens up their day again. These lovers encountered lots of trials in their relationship but they never gave up.

Therefore, if you love someone, you’re willing to sacrifice for the sake of the relationship. And if you are meant for each other, no matter how far the distance, it will not be the hindrance of the relationship because love will find a way that it end with a happy ending.

Jackson’s Choreographer Teaches Dancing the Filipino Inmates

Cebu Provincial Detention And Rehabilitation Center or (CPDRC) in the Philippines performed the Michael Jackson dance steps. Payne, who worked with Jackson for more than 10 years, was able to take their performance to new heights. Their rendition of Jackson’s “They Don’t Really Care About Us” is comparable to the scene in “This Is It.” He teaches the Jackson dance steps to almost 1500 inmates in Cebu and it’s such a great performance. In fact, it gives pride to all the Filipino people that Payne chooses CPDRC to train this Michael Jackson dance steps. Payne spent two hours on Sun., Jan. 17, and Mon., Jan. 18, teaching the dancers the routines from Jackson’s posthumous “This Is It” film.

“The Drill” is the last scene Payne and Jackson worked on together before the pop icon died in June. The clip was released over the weekend, days before the Tues., Jan. 26 release of the “This Is It” DVD.

The “This Is It” version is a highlight of the film. It features a group of dancers who were digitally replicated to appear as an army. Payne’s work with the CPDRC men brought this virtual sequence to real life.

Movie : Paano na kaya

Paano na kaya is a Filipino movie that will be shown on cinema starting tomorrow. The main cast of this movie are Kim Chiu and Gerald Anderson or known as KimeRald, the combination of their names. As I see the trailer of the movie, I got interested with it because it’s about love and friendship. The story revolves around two people who cross the line from being friends to being a couple. Kim’s character is touted to be a rebound girl since Gerald’s character broke up with his previous girlfriend (portrayed by Melissa Ricks)

When we love someone, we don’t choose to whom we fall in love and sometimes it happened that we fall in love with our best friend and that’s the movie all about. But how can you tell to the person or to your best friend that you have a feeling to him if you know that he has someone special. So it a bit confusing, there some fear that maybe the friendship might end or it will grow more and create something special feeling. Try to put yourself in this situation, how will you handle this kind of problem.

Magpasikat

After a temporary suspension of Showtime, the cast and stuff of the program temporarily replace Magpasikat as the title of the show. It’s a bit the same as showtime, still very entertaining. As supporter of the show, I still enjoy and continue watching the show. The difference between Magpasikat and Showtime are the contestants who will show their talent are some well-known celebrities while the Showtime, ordinary people has given a chance to show their talent on TV. Additional to Magpasikat is the game that they draw lots from the audience, which is good because they give chance to the audience that they can win 20k per group.

Showtime suspension


SHOWTIME is a highly entertaining show watched by many Filipinos. It helps promote and showcase the creativity and talent of kapamilyas nationwide, uplifts their spirit and provides opportunities to improve their lives.”

The showtime program that I often watch every morning at ABS-CBN has been suspended by the MTRCB (Movie and Television Review and Classification Board) due to Rosana Rocess comment. Roces has been axed as one of “Showtime’s” judges after taking potshots at school teachers during the program’s January 7 episode.
I saw this program on TV and when I heard her comment about teachers, of course I feel sad because not all the teachers are like that. No one is perfect in this world, and we admit that sometimes we also made some mistakes, even those people who are a higher position in their life, they made some mistakes too.

Take a look the short video clip, how will you react through her comment.
