‘100 Tula Para Kay Stella’ Movie Review: A Nostalgic Ride Back To The Days of Rock Bands & Heartbreaks



*Minor Spoilers Ahead*

Coming from critically acclaimed director, Jason Paul Laxamana, “100 Tula Para Kay Stella” takes on the story of the relationship progression between rocker chick Stella (Bella Padilla) and smart but stutterer, Fidel in a span of a few years in college following a chance encounter in their Freshie year. Narratively-hinged on their friendship, the two’s bond, however, gets tested by various personal issues.

Set in the mid 2000s - the Pinoy band golden years, grounding Stella as someone who aspires to take a piece of that attention is not at all farfetched. In fact, those who will go see “100 Tula” might remember how small-time bands populated schools during the era. The callbacks are very fulfilling, especially if you are familiar with the musical dominance age of Rivermaya and Sugarfree, Barbie Almalbis and Dice and K9 (who remembers Itsumo?). It’s a cathartic type of nostalgia brought about by the references, as well as, the multiple appearance of the brick Nokia phone.

Furthermore, the inciting incident, although very simple, gives the film some realness to it. The whole movie was kicked-off by Stella’s act of kindness towards Fidel who was rather intimidated to socialize during Freshie’s night. A couple of years after, while reminiscing on their first night together, Fidel asked her why she helped him, to which Stella nonchalantly replied “ewan.” It’s subtle in a way that their whole relationship started not because of fate or something superficial, but because Stella took the initiative to reach out to someone who was obviously struggling without any prejudice.

The film’s waterloo however lies in its tonal inconsistency. At times it tried to be lighthearted, sweet and charming and then all of a sudden, it becomes very dark - most especially with the projected complexities of Stella’s character. While range in a story is not necessarily always a bad move, it is difficult to jump from one story palette to another, without any kind of clever set-up and with a slow-burn film like “100 Tula” which events have been sparsed out in a few years.

In conjunction to that, the two main characters are a bit underbaked in terms of establishing main leads carrying a supposed two-way life journey. Stella, as previously mentioned, flip flopped in her actions and thought process which could pass up if she was presented as someone who was conflicted between wanting to do what is practical and following her dreams. But from the get-go, she had tunnel vision when it comes to making it big as a singer. She is stubborn with her mindset, so it is quite jarring to find out that by the end, she just settled for a life that she has never even tinkered about.

Fidel, on the other hand, while a bit more streamlined of a character, still lacked a trajectory. His speech disorder, which was supposedly a MacGuffin to his story, somehow got lost in the shuffle by the second act and was not really given a strong pay-off despite the fact that he found comfortability with performing in front of an audience.

“100 Tula” would have probably worked a whole lot of better without its bold attempt for a grittier and edgier story. Both actors did a prolific job with the material given, it just didn’t have the strong foundation it needed for it to earn the ending it went with. That said, it is still worth the watch even with just the stylistic risk that it took even if was not executed as flawlessly as it could have been - proving that Filipino films are thriving in terms of offering something new to movie audiences.

“100 Tula Para Kay Stella” is part of this year’s first ever Pista ng Pelikulang Pilipino where several other local films are played in cinemas nationwide starting August 16 to 22.

Puppy found in cement mixer collision site was father’s surprise gift to kids



MANILA, Philippines - Before he died in a tragic cement mixer collision, Ulysses Ramos gave his family a surprise gift that would later serve as a constant reminder of him to the family.

Puppy found in cement mixer collision site was father’s surprise gift to kids

Conrad, a two-month old puppy, was given by Ramos the morning before he was killed and his wife Marife and three children were injured in a vehicular collision along Mindanao Avenue in Quezon City on Tuesday, August 15. The newest member of the family was with them during the accident.

While Ramos, 34, was declared dead on arrival, Marife suffered a broken right arm, while their children sustained minor scratches. A few moments after the family was rescued, Conrad was seen following one of the survivors who was walking away from the wreckage.

According to Jail officer Jenny Ramirez, they immediately brought Conrad to the crash survivors as they were given first aid in the ambulance. However, they were asked by the family to temporarily take care of the puppy. Conrad was brought to a nearby office by a Bureau of Jail Management and Penology (BJMP) employee.

Ramirez recounted that Conrad was shivering at the time he was brought to the office.

“Siyempre po, kinomfort po ng mga kasama ko yung dog kasi ano siya, nanginginig,” Ramirez told ABS-CBN News.

An animal lover, Ramirez did not think twice about returning Conrad back to his family. The following night, the puppy was brought to the grieving family at Ramos’ wake at a funeral home in Quezon City.

Although still in pain because of the sudden loss of a family member, the Ramoses happily welcomed Conrad. Ramirez is hoping that Conrad would help the family cope with the tragedy.

Jayson Muleta, the driver of the cement mixer, is currently facing charges of reckless imprudence resulting in damage to property with homicide and multiple physical injuries.

‘Bar Boys’ Movie Review: The World of Law In Fun (Sometimes Scary) Retrospect



Getting law school, finishing law school and eventually passing the bar is not an easy feat, but “Bar Boys” definitely makes it look like a thrilling adventure.

‘Bar Boys’ Movie Enzo, Carlo, Rocco
Enzo Pineda as Chris, Carlo Aquino as Eric and Rocco Nacino as Toran in ‘Bar Boys’/TropicFrills Film Productions
A three-year passion project from budding director Kip Oebanda, “Bar Boys” tackles the story of 4 friends - Toran (Rocco Nacino), Chris (Enzo Pineda), Josh (Kean Cipriano) and Eric (Carlo Aquino) as they embark on the tumultuous 4 years of law school and the grueling bar exam that follows.

One thing that this film has nailed from the get-go is humor. Whether you are someone who knows the ins and outs of being a law student or completely oblivious to the technical concepts used throughout the movie, every single joke hits. It does help too, that the actors and even supporting actors all had great comedic timing and un-lazy jokes. That said, it does not gloss over the things that would have real-life law students develop an affiliation to the characters. If anything, it was able to find the storytelling balance between making those who can relate the feeling of being in on the gags and making it universal so that everyone can enjoy it.

That said, whether you are in or out in the law circle, “Bar Boys” offers something to everybody who has felt inadequate and burdened by their social status. Getting into Law school may already be a huge thing to the outside world, but it is very different within the boundaries of the environment bubble one is entering. There is a certain invisible hierarchy that oftentimes get overlooked at by academically superior students but is largely felt by those who strive day in and day out and yet somehow, still feels lacking.

In particular, Eric’s storyline was equally emotional and fulfilling - barely passing the LAE and struggling the whole time just to keep up with everyone else. Without the luxury of Chris’s money and Toran’s brilliant memory, he was left with no choice but to strive as hard as he can to achieve his (and his father’s) dream.

‘Bar Boys’ Movie Enzo, Carlo, Rocco, Kean
Carlo Aquino as Eric, Kean Cipriano as Josh, Enzo Pineda as Chris and Rocco Nacino as Toran in ‘Bar Boys’/TropicFrills Film Productions
All those said, there were still some aspects of the film that could have been tightly pulled together for a more cohesive narrative. “Bar boys” presented 4 main leads all hoping to get a slot in law school. While Toran, Chris and Eric were all given well crafted individual stories - all of which made sense separately and/or tied-in together, it would have been nice to see Josh’s perspective - someone who did not make the cut, as his old buddies work their way to becoming lawyers. It almost felt like he was lost in the shuffle in the film’s second act with just numerous pop-ups without us fully knowing how he coped with his “failure.”

Additionally, the planted plot seed of Toran’s love life had no pay-off. In fact, we never saw his supposed lover following their one-night together although a reunion and possibly even a full-blown relationship was teased. It would have been a better tied-in narrative of there was some kind of a closure with that subplot instead of it basically having no significant sense other than to reiterate that law students are too busy for a full blown relationship.

All in all, “Bar Boys” is a universally appealing film - charming but not too cheesy. But for Law students, undergrads, grads and everyone else who ever dreamed of becoming a lawyer, the film is a great ride that would stir up any kind of emotion rooted from the dream that was, that is or that will never be.

“Bar Boys” is part of this year’s first ever Pista ng Pelikulang Pilipino where several other local films are played in cinemas nationwide starting August 16 to 22.

FIBA Asia Cup 2017: Gilas Pilipinas bows down to Korea, exits tournament



MANILA, Philippines – Gilas Pilipinas might have swept Group B in the elimination rounds with an immaculate 3-0 record. But tonight, Team Philippines suffered its very first loss at the knockout quarterfinals against the much quicker and much taller South Koreans, 118-86, on August 17 in Beirut, Lebanon.

It’s been 3 years since Philippines beat South Korea and broke the “Korean Curse.” But, that win during the FIBA Asia Championship in Manila is Philippines’ lone victory against SOKOR in 10 face offs prior to this game.

Not a good start for Philippines as Korea scored first in less than 10 seconds right after the opening tipoff followed by a three pointer and a turnover by Gilas Pilipinas.

Jayson Castro-William on the other end of the floor, showed the Koreans why he’s being called as “The Blur” by relentlessly attacking the basket and leaving his guards behind.

Christian Standhardinger who took an off during the game against Qatar due to severe stiffed neck came back aggressively in this game. The Fil-German made a living under the basket and helped Philippines to take the lead with 3 minutes remaining in the first.

June Mar Fajardo made his first ever appearance in this tournament at the 2-minute mark of the first. Fajardo however missed his first couple of shots and Philippines found itself behind South Korea by 8 points, 26-18.

Team Pilipinas welcomed 2nd quarter with another turnover and a foul against Standhardinger. But Terrence Romeo was too quick to atone his team’s lapses with a back-to-back triples. The Koreans however, countered every Gilas basket and maintained their lead.

Romeo made 11 straight points from the moment he stepped on the court. But, the Koreans sizzled hot from the outside and escalated the lead to a dozen, 41-29 with 6:21 remaining in the half.

South Korea led as much as 16 points before the first half expired. Terrence Romeo’s 22 2nd period points including 7 three pointers trimmed the margin to just 8, 49-57.

South Korea started the 2nd half with quick 7 points that brought its double-digit margin back. Along with this, the Koreans began to trap and double-team Terrence Romeo.

Gilas’ defense collapsed in the 3rd quarter combined with total bad luck as the Filipinos’ kept on missing their shots that resulted to a 22-point humongous lead for South Korea.

Coach Chot Reyes shuffled his men several times and hoped to get the right combination in both offensive and defensive departments. After 3 quarters, Reyes still unable to field in the perfect Gilas five and trailed the Koreans, 86-62.

Gilas Pilipinas opened its 4th quarter campaign down by big numbers. All of its players had gone cold and unable to make baskets even the easy ones. Terrence Romeo was completely shut down after erupting for 22 points while Matthew Wright who was playing excellent basketball in the previous games was totally missing in action in tonight’s game.

South Korea hit the century mark, 102-73 with 3:55 remaining in the ballgame and Philippines’ hope in bouncing back vanished.

Despite the big lead, South Korea still drained triples to keep its distance from Philippines. Coach Chot Reyes waived the white flag as he pulled out his top scorers and combo-guards Terrence Romeo and Jayson Castro-William.

Watch full video replay:


As the final horn sounded, Gilas Pilipinas exits the tournament after getting a serious beating from South Korea, 118-86. South Korea advances to the knockout semis and awaits the winner of Iran vs. Lebanon game.

The Summit Express congratulates Gilas Pilipinas for representing our country’s colors in this tournament. The Filipinos are still proud of you! Laban Pilipinas! Puso!

Woman with mental illness locked in cage in Daet, Camarines Norte



MANILA, Philippines - A woman suffering from mental illness was found locked inside a cage in Daet, Camarines Norte for the past four years. Her family decided to lock up Nene, who is suffering from schizophrenia, to prevent her from being violent.

Woman with mental illness locked in cage in Daet, Camarines Norte

The plight of Nene and her family was revealed in a report by Reel Time on GMA News TV.
“Yan si Nene mahilig yan mangkagat, mangpaso, magsigaw. Kinulong namen si Nene para hindi makasakit sa iba,” Rosa said.

According to her parents Berto and Rosa, Nene lived a normal life until her husband suddenly left her along with their daughter. Unable to cope with the distressing situation, Nene’s behavior started to change.

“Noong umalis na yung asawa niya, lagi na siyang galit, laging lahat na kami sinasakal na ako. Yung kapatid niya pinupukpok ng kutsara, nangbabato,” Rosa recalled.

Realizing that Nene needed medical attention, the poor family brought her to a hospital in Camarines Sur. Although she received treatment in the hospital for two months, they had no choice but to bring her home and lock her in since they didn’t have money to support her treatment.

“Doon namen dinala si Nene sa Camarines Sur. Nagtagal si Nene ng dalawang buwan. Ang sabi ng doktor, na-trauma lang daw si Nene kasi yang anak di niya nakikita,” Rosa recounted.

Like his parents, Nene’s brother Oliver also wants her sister to receive the treatment she needs.

“Pag lumalapit po ako sa kulungan minsan kinakabahan po ako. Naawa po ako kay Ate kasi ganyan po ang sitwasyon. Parang akala mo lang po’y sang baby na nakakulong,” Oliver said.

Luckily, the Reel Time team offered to give the assistance Nene’s family needs in order to bring her to the appropriate treatment facility. Nene was brought to Cadian Mental Hospital in Pili, Camarines Sur.

After Nene underwent assessment, Dr. Edessa P. Laguidao, a Consultant Psychiatrist and Psychiatry Department Head of Bicol Medical Center, concluded that Nene was suffering from schizophrenia.

“Kasi yang pasyente naten, yung anak nita inilayo sa kanya, so pwedeng yung separation na tagning pinanghahawakan niya na lang para maging inspirado o interesado sa buhay tinanggal pa sa kanya,” Dr. Laguidao explained.

Dr. Laguidao recommends that Nene undergo assessment and treatment for the next two weeks. If she doesn’t show improvement, she will be transferred to the female ward for further treatment.

Schizophrenia, according to the National Institute of Mental Health is a chronic and severe mental disorder that affects how a person thinks, feels, and behaves. This disabling disorder usually starts between ages 16 and 30.
