2 great actresses feted in ‘T-Bird’s’ rerelease
Orly Agawin, organizational development consultant: “The rerelease of Danny Zialcita’s ‘T-Bird at Ako’ shows that we care about history, the arts and their legacy. Its remastered version is something we can be proud of.
“We no longer need to know who’s better between Nora Aunor and Vilma Santos—what matters is the preservation of a screen classic that allows us to understand what it is about the film medium that continually touches our lives. It’s also a celebration of two great actresses whose individual or collective magic is gloriously captured onscreen.”
Chona Catalan, housewife: “Xian Lim is getting a bad rap as a result of his recent squabble with a provincial governor. If news reports are true, the actor wasn’t required to wear the shirt bearing the name of the province given to him. Obviously, it didn’t warrant Xian’s retort.
“This isn’t the first time for Xian to figure in an unpleasant incident. Recall the video that went viral, showing his ungentlemanly behavior with a Kim Chiu lookalike. Hasn’t he learned his lesson?”
Anna Marie Abu, government employee: “The screen pairing of Angelica Panganiban and JM de Guzman in ‘That Thing Called Tadhana’ is so convincing that it’d be a great idea for them to topbill a light-hearted teleserye.”
Rene Pagtalunan, televiewer: “It was a relief hearing Lea Salonga on ‘Aquino & Abunda Tonight’ echoing my thoughts about reality-talent competitions like ‘The Voice.’ Lea urged the four finalists not to elicit the public’s pity or sympathy to generate votes—because doing so is cheap! Instead, Lea advised them to rely on talent to win the title.”
