Cherie Gil deserves a different thespic showcase

/ 10:27 PM June 28, 2013

GIL. She’s just as good when she isn’t playing a baddie.

Rose Padayhag, office employee: “I want to see Cherie Gil in non-kontrabida roles for a change. She’s a talented actress who can do well even when she’s deglamorized. She deserves a different showcase to show off her versatility.”

Other notes:

Cristina Noche, housewife: “I’ve been following Ryzza Mae Dizon’s career since she was discovered on ‘Eat Bulaga.’ She’s talented, cute and witty. I just wish that her handlers would make sure that she isn’t deprived of a normal childhood, even if she’s busier than her peers. She should be guided well and not be overworked—and her studies shouldn’t take the back seat to her show biz chores!”


Benedict Babasa, guidance counselor: “I have been watching ‘My Husband’s Lover’ diligently. Its theme and plot veer significantly away from the usually predictable TV dramas. It addresses the issue of homosexuality in a humane way, and explores how its characters manage to triumph over loneliness and isolation. The show is endearingly honest and frank, a breath of fresh air in local programming!”

Affordable movie treats

Robbie Tinawin, businessman: “Some SM cinemas are making a profit by showing second-run foreign films—at P25 per ticket! Moviegoers, mostly students, come in droves because they’re affordable.

“How about showing our local classics, like ‘Himala’ and Oro Plata Mata,’ at bargain prices? We appreciate the efforts of our television networks to include acclaimed Pinoy movies in their programming—but, there’s nothing better than seeing them on the big screen!”

Yuki Romeo Sacurom, fashion designer: “The CineFilipino film festival was supposed to open this month, but its launch has been reset, with no specific date yet. I have been looking forward to watching its entries, especially Mes de Guzman’s ‘Ang Kuwento ni Mabuti’ and Sari and Kiri Dalena’s ‘The Guerrilla Is a Poet.’ Any update, CineFilipino organizers?”
