This is not a proper Heneral Luna review. I tried writing one, but words fail me. Simply put, Heneral Luna is one of the most remarkable Filipino made films I\’ve seen. The talent that went into creating this movie from all people involved evokes pride in me as a Filipino. The risk they took in […]

\”Keep an open mind.\” That\’s the thing I kept repeating to myself for days leading up to the day I watched Man of Steel. I carefully avoided all the spoilers, and from whatever comments made by other people, I tried not to let it affect my own judgment. SPOILERS AHEAD! There was a lot to […]

Someone added me recently to a Star Trek group in Facebook. It made me realize how much of a Trekkie I am. A Trekkie for much of my life, actually. I dug up this rather long piece I wrote about Star Trek in 2004, expressing my anguish at the cancellation of ENTERPRISE after only 4 […]

You can see it […]

During the first week of May, I was involved in making this short film on child trafficking and prostitution, directed by Lem Garcellano (Batibot) . I don\’t think it\’s a film for commercial purposes as it will be used for information rather than entertainment. I wrote a little bit about it here. Naturally, I made […]

For the last couple of days I took a short diversion from comics to participate in the making of a short film called \”Tin-Tin, 15\”, designed to tackle the issue of child trafficking in the country and its devastating effects. I played a really, REALLY bad guy. Johnny Danganan (playing a straight guy), Jonas Diego […]

Allow me to dial it back a bit and take it easy. The case has been submitted to the Supreme Court so all we can do is sit back and wait and see what happens. All throughout this, I have of course been continuing to work on these comics projects. It\’s been kinda crazy. I […]

Thanks to Azrael, me and Ilyn were able to watch Star Trek last night at the IMAX cinema at the SM Mall of Asia. When Az first sent the email asking if I wanted tickets to an IMAX showing of the movie, I immediately said yes. How could I not? I\’ve been a life long […]

As per physical evidence presented to us by Mr. Simon and Steve Santos of the highly informative and utterly credible Video48 site and Unang Labas site, they present absolute proof of the existence of one distinct example of an Ante Extant Gallus Gallus as early as 1952 right here in the Philippines. The proof was […]

CHICKEN LETHAL by Ruel S. De Vera Philippine Daily Inquirer December 20, 2008 \’…but “Wasted,” reprinted twice in book form, was widely recognized to be his greatest work. Until now, that is-because he has unleashed something even more original and crazier than “Wasted.” \’ For the rest of the review you can check out today\’s […]
