HOT is when it sizzles. HOT is when you can’t resist but jump into the fire. HOT is when NINE ACTORS dominate the scene as 2014 tiptoes out of the calender. Yes, these 9 dudes are making a great difference!
JERICHO ROSALES. Just married. But that does not lessen his raw charm. Having been in the business for almost two decades now, Jericho has maintained a subtle swag to enhance his star status and dive into higher grounds. Aside from being one of the most reliable soapbox leading men, he is also a recording artist.
DENNIS TRILLO. Your true Chinoy dreamboat. Not to be outdone by his peers, Dennis is secure with his filmic escapades; while his tv chores are what you may consider as generic, his films [basically indies] totally exhibit the depth and extent of what he is made of as an actor!

Rey ‘PJ’ Abellana was a college crush. I would secretly watch ‘AnnaLiza’ just to get a glimpse of him and my whole week is done. As a matter of fact, I searched far and wide just to find a common mortal who looked like him. Magpatuloy sa pagbasa →
Reading is a gateway to wisdom. Through it, you are ushered into a world powered by the gift of imagination. Nowadays it is almost a novelty to see young people pore over books but with Bianca B. Bernardo’s phenomenal pocketbook [also available online] ‘SHE’S DATING THE GANGSTER’ that has changed altogether. Magpatuloy sa pagbasa →

This IS totally news. Pop Princess SARAH GERONIMO is in love again… this time with Cebuano-Italian heart-throb MATTEO GUIDICELLI ! No doubt, her fans are cheering deep inside because at her ripe age of past half twenties, she deserves a lovelife! Figuring in several heartbreaks, Sarah is now quite mature enough to weigh her emotions and dwell only on what her feelings feed her. Definitely such is love. You do not put into consideration the rest of the world (especially your meddling immediate ones) but only the thrill of having your heart beat four times faster the usual and synchronized perfectly with the apple of your eye! Her camp is mum about making a fuzz about an admittance but when I saw Sarah recently , her glow exuded MOLTO BELLA! They really don’t have to publicly announce their romance for whatever reason because keeping it under the blanket makes it a bit deliciously edgy and also adds to some subtle excitement that they can both share as the real people that they are away from the meddling crowd! Love is in the air!
It could not happen to a better actor [the least to a chance] to star in two films in a festival. Well, sometimes it does and that sometime is this year’s CINEMALAYA Independent Film Festival where PAULO AVELINO is expected to generate excitement and anticipation as he topbills in Tarrog’s ‘SANA DATI’ and Yapan’s ‘DEBOSYON’. Whispering waves echoing through the industry has it that he stands another great chance of winning an award for either… or both! Undoubtedly, Avelino’s depth and expository thespian range is a hard nut to crack while lavishing on the boyish masculine charm it comes from. This early? Yes, this early… CONGRATULATIONS PAULO! Luv Yah! Luv Yah? Yes, close kami noh???
Certified Queen Of Philippine Indie Films : MERCEDES CABRAL
Half-a-ghost-of-a-chance along a journey on the facets of Philippine Independent Cinema, a face will persistently shadow upon some filmic meandering and tattoo on minds a subtle allure so totally fresh and unique. The face has a name : MERCEDES CABRAL. A name now casually being dropped as THE QUEEN OF PHILIPPINE INDIE. A title that so far nobody has attempted to refute since this twenty-five year old actress who never dreamed of becoming such as a child, fits the tag perfectly. ‘I only wanted to paint… I wasn’t aware then that I will eventually end up as an actress; My passion for painting grew up with me so I took up Fine Arts at the state university,” she languorously surmised as I grab some of her moments while being made up for a pictorial. Looking at her now , you can’t help but retrace the Mercedes you saw on ‘SERBIS’, her third film outing wherein she had no qualms dipping herself into the now taunted risqué scene with Coco Martin. Finely etched into the digital realm, Director Brilliante Mendoza was dead sure that he had a gem in his hands. Word around and beyond the industry now distinctly projects her as Mendoza’s muse : “ If Brocka had Hilda Koronel; Bernal had Rita Gomez; Goseingfiao had Alma Moreno… Brilliante Mendoza has Mercedes Cabral!” She breathes that Mendoza taught her how to carefully knot the nittier-grittier ropes of the trade. When asked to describe her mentor , she only has one word and said in awe : ‘Genius’. To top it all, when she graced Cannes Film Festival in 2008, she was no less acknowledged with the MOST BEAUTIFUL ACTRESS award ; an endearing tribute to the Filipina beauty . Magpatuloy sa pagbasa →
