Welcome exception to the rule
Mon Sonjaco, student: “While most openly gay actors on TV play it loud and overly physical to the point of being obnoxious, Joey Paras is a welcome exception to the rule. He is charming and lovable, even in scenes where he’s supposed to be the ‘villain.’”
Rene Balan, student: “Angeline Quinto’s beauty-enhancement procedures have done wonders for her looks. In her recent TV guesting, there was a big to-do about the way she expresses herself in English. She can be understood more clearly if she just speaks in Tagalog.”
Patricia Magsombol, graduate student: “I realized it was Cinemalaya season once again when I started seeing the trailers of its entries in social media. The latest batch looks promising, especially ‘1st Ko Si 3rd,’ ‘Kasal’ and ‘Mariquina.’ To those who complain about the state of moviemaking, here’s your chance to support our new breed of filmmakers!”
MaritessVillalon, housewife: “GMA 7’s resident meteorologist, Nathaniel Cruz, must be the coolest weather man on TV. He has a relaxed and calm demeanor as he explains the weather situation in a detailed and easy-to-understand manner. The best part of the update is when he gives advice to viewers about what they should do to get out of harm’s way.”
Steve Gomez, televiewer: “I find it strange that broadcast veterans like Noli de Castro and Ted Failon do not make an effort to show professionalism when they read the news on their teleradyo programs. They read the news from a piece of paper. Can’t they be provided a teleprompter, like in their evening newscast?”
