We will stand up against terrorism. We will fight against evil."

‘Jack Em Popoy’ Movie Review: Comedy meets action brings viewers back to the ‘90s



MANILA, Philippines - Vic Sotto’s Metro Manila Film Festival (MMFF) 2018 offering, “Jack Em Popoy: The Puliscredibles” brings together his brand of comedy from Eat Bulaga! and Coco Martin’s knack for action as seen in “Ang Probinsyano” for a flick reminiscent of ‘90s action-blockbuster movies.

*Minor Spoilers Ahead*

Directed by Mike Tuviera, the movie stars Sotto as Perfecto “Popoy” Fernandez, a senior police officer that feels stuck in his career and Martin as Jacinto “Jack” Halimuyac, his brand new partner, together, they attempt to bring down crime and drug lord, Antonio Montenegro (Rolando Valdez).

As they dive deep into their latest mission, they discover a link from their respective pasts that connects the both of them, as well as Popoy’s adopted daughter, Maine Mendoza’s Emily “Em” Fernandez who’s also a cop.

Maine Mendoza as Em, Vic Sotto as Popoy and Coco Martin as Jack in ‘Jack Em Popoy

For such a mesh of different personalities, “Jack Em Popoy” was surprisingly able to come up with a cohesive narrative with pockets of pure fun and entertainment that the whole family can enjoy. The movie will definitely tickle fans of ‘90s action-comedy’s fancy as it maintains a tone that is similar to those feel-good thrillers.

RELATED STORIES

Performances are decent - even for supporting actors. There’s a lot of moving pieces in “Jack Em Popoy,” and oftentimes, it’s inching dangerously close to being convoluted. But with a pretty much tried-and-tested narrative, it’s still able to give viewers a sense of familiarity - as if they’re part of the heist and not just mere bystanders. Perhaps it’s because we’re used to seeing Sotto, Martin and even Mendoza on TV every day that it’s quite easy to get behind them.

The fact that product placements are significantly lesser than past few years in MMFF blockbuster movies is also a win for “Jack Em Popoy.”

Nothing new here

For those who constantly watch either And Probinsyano or Eat Bulaga!, chances are the fact that the two unusual worlds colliding in “Jack Em Popoy” as one of the main reasons to catch the flick. All the usual suspects are in the movie, unfortunately, it’s also the movie’s biggest waterloo.

Considering that star power that the film boasts - each lead actor has their own massive following, it felt like a double-edged sword as the film doesn’t offer anything new other than what Sotto, Mendoza and Martin do on the daily.

Simply put, the only novelty in “Jack Em Popoy” is seeing stars from rivalring networks come together for a fun flick.

Maine Mendoza as Em, Vic Sotto as Popoy and Coco Martin as Jack in ‘Jack Em Popoy'

Overall, “Jack Em Popoy: The Puliscredibles” delivers exactly what it’s set out to do - no more and no less. While it would’ve been made all the difference if the story isn’t a retreaded one (perhaps with little tweaks that would’ve updated it), it’s still an entertaining time at the cinema.

It’s also worth noting that the top two box office earners this year features melding of two worlds with ABS-CBN artists working with GMA stars, the other one being “Fantastica”. The mix and match of stars opens up fresh tandems on the big screen - a welcome change from seeing the same stars working repeatedly with each other.

RATING: 5 out of 10

DENR orders Cove Manila to stop balloon drop event or face charges



MANILA, Philippines – The Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) has ordered Cove Manila to stop their planned “largest balloon drop” event, an attempt to break the world record.

Environment Secretary Roy Cimatu has called the attention of the event organizers of Cove Manila's New Year Eve countdown party emphasizing the immense waste the event will produce.

Environment Undersecretary Benny Antiporda, DENR spokesperson also gave a stern warning that arrests and charges will be made if the popular beach club pushes through with their plans. Antiporda said that a “solid waste disaster is waiting to happen.”

READ: #DropBalloonDrop: “Econetizens”, celebrities slam Cove Manila's largest balloon drop event

Okada Manila's indoor beach club and night club plans to release 130,000 balloons indoor as an attempt to break the Guinness World Record for the largest balloon drop. Econetizens have been slamming the even calling it as “largest trash dump.”


Cove Manila has issued another statement clarifying their stand on the controversial event. On their Facebook page, Cove Manila stated that they will still push through with their event noting that the balloons used are biodegradable and will degrade over time. They also assured that there will be people to properly handle the waste disposal of the balloons. Lastly, the posh beach club also stated that all the balloons used will be recycled.

DENR orders Cove Manila to stop balloon drop event or face charges

Cove Manila also noted how protecting the environment is “one of the pillars” of Okada Manila's corporate social responsibility. They reiterated that their event is not just to play with balloons but “an earnest effort not only to make a new world record for the country, but also to demonstrate that we can have a lot of fun but still remain responsible.”

But DENR Usec Antiporda isn't convinced, he said, “Even if the organizers continue to hold the event indoor, because there were reports that they have shifted to do it inside Okada, our DENR personnel will be physically present there to monitor the disposal of those balloons and at the same time implement immediate action against violators.”

Antiporda also clarified that there's no such thing as “biodegradable” balloons because it will only turn into microplastic that eventually endangers the wildlife creatures in the sea.

UPDATE: After the talk with DENR representatives, Okada Manila decided not to push through the balloon drop event, "the management of Okada Manila has voluntarily decided to cancel the Balloon Drop event as a sign of respect to the DENR’s recommendation and in support of the Government’s campaign to protect and save the environment."

#DropBalloonDrop: “Econetizens”, celebrities slam Cove Manila's largest balloon drop event



MANILA, Philippines – Netizens and environmental advocates are calling out Cove Manila for their attempt to break the world record for the largest balloon drop.
“130,000 balloons” Cove Manila's largest balloon drop

For their New Year Eve's countdown party, Cove Manila, Okada Manila's indoor beach club and nightclub will be releasing 130,000 balloons indoor as an attempt to break the Guinness World Record for the largest balloon drop. Netizens, “econetizens” and environmental advocates are slamming the event, calling it the “largest trash dump.”

UPDATE: DENR orders Cove Manila to stop balloon drop event or face charges

Heathcliff Motorga, director of Cove Manila described their grand plan, "The countdown will be followed by our attempt to break the Guinness Book of World Records for the largest indoor balloon drop. If the last record was in 2012 with 109,000, we'll drop this year 130,000 followed by massive fireworks for Okada’s New Year's Eve celebration, and I assume many local celebrities will be around. We will put Manila again on the map of the world with breaking news. It will be fantastic opportunity for our guests to make history together.”

“130,000 balloons” Cove Manila's largest balloon drop

Cove Manila released a statement addressing the concerns, “Rest assured though that the property is consistently following the Local Government Unit’s waste disposal guidelines and we’ll apply the same for our upcoming NYE2019 event."

“130,000 balloons” Cove Manila's largest balloon drop

Despite Cove Manila's assurance the balloon drop will be done indoors and that proper waste disposal procedures will be followed, environmentalists are not convinced.

SEE ALSO: New Year's Eve Countdown to 2019: Top 19 Places, Events in Metro Manila

Bataris Project, which is hosted by Greenpeace SEA-Philippines has been rallying their online petition to stop Cove Manila's controversial event.

The online petition said, “Even if this will be done indoors, Cove Manila's balloon drop must be stopped. How about growing 130,000 indigenous trees to offset your carbon emissions?”

The group stated that the event is “unsustainable, wasteful and ecologically apathetic.” They pointed out how the 130,000 rubber balloons will only fill up landfills and destroy ecosystems. Despite following proper waste disposal, the event might only add to the country's growing problem on plastic pollution.

The petition urged Cove Manila to try more environment-friendly alternatives such as “plant as remembrance” or use kite or wind spinners instead.

Several econetizens continue to make noise to stop the controversial party. Econetizen Grayson Gil Lidon Yañez wrote a letter for Cove Manila asking them to change their plans. An excerpt stated, “It’s 130,000 plastic/rubber balloons we are talking about here — at a single event. Chances are it will still be dumped in sites or eventually end up in the oceans. Hope you will still reconsider and help us take action in taking care of our environment.”

Climate Reality Philippines, Greenpeace Philippines, Save Philippine Seas and even local celebrities such as Bela Padilla and Winwyn Marquez have all spoken up against Cove Manila's party.

Woman finds self in ‘special flight’ to Manila on Christmas Eve, she’s the only passenger on board



MANILA, Philippines – It’s peak season for traveling, with most flights and boat trips fully booked until a few after New Year’s Day. But one woman found herself the only passenger to a ‘special flight’ to Manila on Christmas Eve.
Woman finds self in ‘special flight’ to Manila on Christmas Eve

Louisa Erispe posted photos from the trip, sharing her apprehension that she was the only one on the flight.

According to Virtual Pinoy, Erispe who’s a new correspondent for People's Television Network (PTV) Philippines, it was the company that booked the flight for the news reporter.

But Philippine Airlines flight PR 2820 from Davao City to Manila had been rescheduled to an earlier time. While the airline managed to reach everyone, they were unable to contact Erispe. When she finally arrived at the airport, the plane had already flown.

Since the missed flight was not the passenger’s fault, the airline decided to proceed with the scheduled flight. This made Erispe the only passenger on the flight.

She wrote on Facebook:

“Hindi ko alam kung anong ibig sabihin or kung ano dapat kong isipin.

But ill be flying alone tonight sa plane. No other passenger, ako lang. Hehe

Kinakabahan ako, hahaha. Ikaw na po bahala Ama 😊”

She was eventually able to relax. She even had fun talking with the crew and taking some photos.

She would later post an update:

“Nakalipad po ako ng maayos and nakapagpalipat lipat ako ng upuan.

KUDOS TO Philippine Airlines NA NILIPAD PARIN AKO. THE BEST AIRLINE SO FAR. 🤗✔😍🇵🇭🇵🇭🇵🇭”

And just like everyone who’s in a similar situation, she also had a good time moving from seat to seat across the airplane – because there’s really no one else to take up the seats.

In another update, she thanked the pilot and the crew for the experience.

“Thank you po Capt. Khalil Faustino and the rest of the crew for the safe and remarkable trip. God Bless po 😊”

Son surprises mom with impressive gift in ‘Kwarta o Kahon’ game for Christmas



MANILA, Philippines – It’s Christmas, the season for giving and receiving gifts! And many are wondering what’s the best gift to give their parents this year.
Son surprises mom with impressive gift in ‘Kwarta o Kahon’

One guy didn’t have that problem because he knew exactly what to do. He would soon go viral for his impressive give for his mother and how he let her play the popular ‘Kwarta o Kahon’ game offered in various TV shows in the past.

In the video, Rotski acted as the game show host and let his mother choose between ‘sure money’ or the box that contained an unknown surprise. As with the game on the TV show, Rotski enticed his mother to choose the cash, first offering her Php5,000 and later increasing the prize money to Php15,000.

His mom gamely chose the box, knowing that the surprise inside the box would surely be more exciting than the money, no matter what she finds inside. Despite Rotski pretending to encourage her to get the cash instead of the box, she didn’t change her mind.

But when it was time to open the box, they had a good laugh because it actually contained a cooking pot! Did Rotski’s mom lose the game? Well, not really because the pot contained a much bigger surprise! Can you guess what’s inside?



Though his mother did not pick the money, she found a lot of money inside the cooking pot from the box. The blue money, obviously Php1,000 bills, came in bundles that netizens estimate to be at Php100k each.

Since there were around 10 bundles in the pot, then netizens conclude the surprise amounts to at least Php1 million! Wow. Is this the most impressive Christmas gift? Certainly!
