Fallen: A Horror Movie With A Unique Take On Demonic Possession

I was planning to include this tidbit in my last article about the horror genre but I found this film to be so interesting that it deserves an article of its own. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you Fallen, a film about demonic possession starring Denzel Washington and directed by Gregory Hoblit which presents a very unconventional […]

3 Annoying Cliches From Pinoy Horror Shows And My Suggestions For Improvement

So now that I’ve tackled the subject of comedy in the Philippines, it’s time for me to tackle my favorite genre: Horror. In case you haven’t noticed, my works of fiction here on GRP The Santo Nino of Innocencia, Noon-Time Horror Show and Deep are all works of horror. This is because fear is a very […]

Bianca Gonzalez-Intal shines bright against critics of her and her daughter’s skin color!

Whenever I and one particular friend of mine meet, the discussion inevitably drifts to show business, local or foreign. Though I do not follow it obsessively like she does, I guess the silver lining in it is that it rounds out whatever other types of news and developments that I follow. Besides, show business and […]

My views about Music (And how commercialism ruined it)

Filipino music became a topic in the GRP Facebook group some time ago.

The Pinoy Hype For Captain America: Civil War And Why I’m Disappointed By It

“Great minds discuss ideas; average minds discuss events; small minds discuss people.” ~Eleanor Roosevelt 2016 sure has quite a bit to show us with a huge lineup of superhero films. So far, we got a taste of Deadpool in February and we can only expect more with other titles like X-Men: Apocalypse and Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice. More importantly […]

Deadpool: The ‘Merc with a mouth’ scores a cinematic hit

Deadpool is not even a movie. The whole thing felt like a long comedy sketch that the likes of SNL or Funny Or Die may have produced (check out their Captain Planet series with Don Cheadle). Needless to say, the entire concept was brilliant. If there’s something that can define Ryan Reynolds from now on, […]
