QCinema 2018: Stirring intimations of death, redemption and the afterlife

While this year's editions of Cinemalaya and CineFilipino gave us reasons to cheer about---like "Liway" and "Pan de Salawal" from the former, and "The Eternity Between Seconds," "Gusto Kita with All My Hypothalamus" and "Delia and Sammy" from the latter---we were, for the most part, underwhelmed by the 2018 entries fielded by ToFarm and Cinema One.   As for QCinema, which ended its nine-day run yesterday, much of the initial theater-hopping difficulty that we had to hurdle involved the "limited" scheduling accessibility of the five full-length entries in the festival's all-Pinoy Circle category.   The prospect of seeing the exceptional likes of Japan's "Shoplifters,...Keep on reading: QCinema 2018: Stirring intimations of death, redemption and the afterlife.....»»

Winwyn on mom Alma: I’ve never seen any of her movies

  It's such a shame that I haven't seen any of her movies yet," said actress-beauty queen Winwyn Marquez, who has long been searching for copies of projects that her mom, Alma Moreno, did in the '70s and '80s. Winwyn said it's unfortunate that Alma was not able to keep any copies of her films, and that she only got to see her mom in Gil Portes' "Carnival Queen" and Ishmael Bernal's "City After Dark" in photographs. "What my Mama did save are tapes of some episodes of her TV show 'Loveli Ness.' I got to watch her dancing there," said Winwyn of Alma's 1988 program where the latter was seen in her signature costume that earned for her the title "Tangga Queen."

Eddie Garcia on ‘ML,’ his 3rd Cinemalaya starring film

    In 2005, during the birth of the Cinemalaya Film Festival, there was already an Eddie Garcia starrer among its pioneer lineup of finalists -- "ICU Bed No. 7" by Rica Arevalo.   Seven years later in 2012, the award-winning actor (and director) again top-billed an unforgettable Cinemalaya film, "Bwakaw" by Jun Robles Lana.   In both films, the "great" Eddie Garcia grabbed the much-coveted Cinemalaya Best Actor awards.   This year (2018), six years later, the seasoned thespian returns to the popular independent film festival.

Nothing childish about Donald Glover

  LOS ANGELES---Donald Glover is on fire. As Childish Gambino, he scored his first No. 1 with "This Is America." The music video for that song, while sparking debates and is disturbing to some people, is hailed as one of the best music videos so far in 2018. And people are loving him as Lando Calrissian, who was originally played by Billy Dee Williams in the earlier "Star Wars" films, in "Solo: A Star Wars Story." In fact, Donald will star in a Lando Calrissian/"Star Wars" spinoff movie. And his Golden Globe- and Emmy-winning comedy series "Atlanta's" Season Two managed to be as riveting as Season One. At 34, Donald is a renaissance man of sorts of the 21st century. He'...Keep on reading: Nothing childish about Donald Glover.....»»

Old School Power Rankings 2018-19: Weeks 3 and 4

By Scott Wraight, NBA.com It was bound to happen, right? The King was never, ever going to give up his throne to anyone else. Period. Because of that, we had to separate him from the rest of the field and give out a new ranking: ATHO (All To His Own). So unless something crazy happens during the season -- or an injury -- No. 1 will have an asterisk of sorts. Now that the chase has opened up for everyone else, it should make for an interesting and intriguing run to the finish line, asterisk be damned. Notes: - Statistics are through games of Nov. 15 (Nov. 16, PHL time) - Any player who turns 32 during regular season can be added to rankings. - Check out previous rankings - Send comments to my email. If it's good -- and clean -- it may appear in a future column. Be sure to include your first name and city. ATHO. LeBron James (33), Los Angeles Lakers Previous rank: 1 Latest stats: 6 games, 27.5 ppg, 7.0 rpg, 6.2 apg Season stats: 27.6 ppg, 7.9 rpg, 7.2 apg Wednesday's (Thursday, PHL time) 44-point performance against the Trail Blazers was the one. That was the one that pushed the King into his own tier, his own neighborhood, his own ranking. He just refuses to make it fair for everyone else. That's how good he is. In addition to Wednesday's (Thursday, PHL time) superior effort, James has gone for 25 or more in eight of the last 10. _______________________________________________________________ 1. Marc Gasol (33), Memphis Grizzlies Previous rank: 4 Latest stats: 7 games, 16.4 ppg, 8.9 rpg, 4.6 apg Season stats: 15.9 ppg, 8.5 rpg, 4.1 apg After eclipsing 15 points in just three of the first six, Gasol has surpassed the mark in four straight, which included Wednesday's (Thursday, PHL time) effort in which he tied a career high with six three's. Of course the splits over the last seven left us puzzled. In four wins, Gasol went for 21.0 ppg, 9.8 rpg and 52.2 3PT%. In three losses: 10.3 ppg, 7.7 rpg and 0-for-8 from deep. 2. Chris Paul (33), Houston Rockets Previous rank: 3 Latest stats: 8 games, 16.0 ppg, 4.9 rpg, 7.1 apg Season stats: 17.0 ppg, 5.2 rpg, 7.5 apg We were ready to move Paul to the top of the list until Thursday's (Friday, PHL time) effort: 10 points (4-for-10 shooting) and seven assists against the Warriors. In two previous games, Paul managed 21 and 26 on 15-for-25 shooting. Of course four previous contests saw him combine for just 39 points on 15-for-47 (31.9) shooting. It's been a bit of a roller coaster ride in November. 3. LaMarcus Aldridge (33), San Antonio Spurs Previous rank: 2 Latest stats: 7 games, 14.1 ppg, 12.9 rpg, 1.6 apg Season stats: 17.4 ppg, 11.0 rpg, 2.4 apg He's scoring at home while rebounding on the road. In three home games, Aldridge went for 21.0 ppg and 9.3 rpg. In four road games, he averaged 9.0 ppg and 15.5 rpg. Aldridge has been hot and cold this month, failing to score in double figures in two of seven and scoring 20 or more just twice. One consistent has been the board work, grabbing 10 or more in five straight. 4. JJ Redick (34), Philadelphia 76ers Previous rank: 7 Latest stats: 7 games, 17.9 ppg, 1.4 rpg, 3.7 apg Season stats: 18.2 ppg, 2.5 rpg, 3.5 apg Redick is feeling it of late, pouring in 20 or more points and hitting at least three three-pointers in three consecutive games. Coincidentally, he's started the last three games after beginning the season on the bench. We've also taken notice of Redick's volume of long-range shots, making 3.0 treys a game and attempting 8.3 -- both career highs. 5. Lou Williams (32), LA Clippers Previous rank: Just missed Latest stats: 6 games, 21.3 ppg, 2.7 rpg, 5.7 apg Season stats: 19.4 ppg, 2.4 rpg, 4.1 apg Hello there, newbie. Williams, who just turned 32 on Oct. 27, sprints up the list on the strength of five games with 20 or more points -- all while averaging less than 30 minutes (29.4) per game. In fact, the only game he didn't go for 20, he added 10 assists. Digging deeper, the last time Williams failed to break double-figure scoring was Nov. 20, 2017. 6. Kyle Lowry (32), Toronto Raptors Previous rank: 5 Latest stats: 6 games, 13.7 ppg, 4.3 rpg, 10.0 apg Season stats: 16.1 ppg, 4.2 rpg, 10.7 apg Lowry, who finally saw his streak of games with 10-plus assists end at nine, has been a bit of a road warrior over the last handful of games. In his last three home games, he averaged 9.3 points, 8.7 assists and 40.0 FG%. In three road games, Lowry managed 18.0 points, 11.3 assists and 46.3 FG%. 7.  Wesley Matthews (32), Dallas Mavericks Previous rank: 6 Latest stats: 5 games, 12.4 ppg, 2.6 rpg, 2.4 apg Season stats: 16.2 ppg, 2.6 rpg, 2.4 apg After starting the season with six straight double-figure scoring games, Matthews has gone for 10 or more in just three of the last seven. He missed one game with a hamstring injury and had to leave Wednesday's (Thursday, PHL time) game after just 21 minutes with the same injury, so that'll skew the numbers a bit, which is why he only fell one spot. 8.  Taj Gibson (33), Minnesota Timberwolves Previous rank: NA Latest stats: 7 games, 12.4 ppg, 7.6 rpg, 1.9 apg Season stats: 11.3 ppg, 7.1 rpg, 1.4 apg Gibson started the season sluggishly, failing to score more than 13 points in any of the first 10 games. Since then, the gritty veteran has gone for 15 or more in three of the last five. Also in those first 10 games, Gibson managed to snag nine or more boards just once. He's done that three times in the last five contests. 9.  Dwight Howard (32), Washington Wizards Previous rank: NA Latest stats: 7 games, 12.6 ppg, 9.0 rpg, 0.4 apg Season stats: 12.6 ppg, 9.0 rpg, 0.4 apg After missing the first seven games of the season with a back injury, Howard is starting to get into a groove. In addition to scoring in double figures in four straight, he has snatched eight or more rebounds in five of the last six. His return to the lineup might also be a reason the Wizards have started to turn things around, winning four of their last six. 10. Goran Dragic (32), Miami Heat Previous rank: 9 Latest stats: 4 games, 16.0 ppg, 3.8 rpg, 4.5 apg Season stats: 17.1 ppg, 3.5 rpg, 4.8 apg The theme song from Facts of Life keeps running through my head: "You take the good, you take the bad ..." That rings very true with Dragic, who in his four games had three with 20 or more points and one with a goose egg on 0-for-7 shooting. Now, we won't pile on since we realize he missed a pair of games with a knee injury. Just missed the cut: Paul Millsap, JJ Barea, Dwyane Wade, Al Horford, Jeff Green The views on this page do not necessarily reflect the views of the NBA, its clubs or Turner Broadcasting......»»

PBA: Lee after winning Manila Clasico: 'Di pa rin kami champion'

Magnolia finally won Manila Clasico. The Hotshots took down two-time Brgy. Ginebra in the 2018 PBA Governors' Cup semfinals, completing a 3-1 series win Friday. While that's great and all, Magnolia has only accomplished half of its goal. The Hotshots want a championship and they need four more wins. Eliminating the defending two-time champions won't mean much if they don't take the title for themselves. "We beat the defending champion pero di pa rin kami champion," guard Paul Lee said. "Kailangan namin talunin pa rin kung sino mananalo sa kabila," he added. Alaska currently leads Meralco in the other semfinals series, 2-1. The Hotshots will start the Finals against either of the two teams on December 5 at the MOA Arena. "Job ain't finished pa rin," Lee said. "Malaki chance naman pero chance lang yun eh. Hindi ka naman mananalo ng championship ng basta-basta. Laging sinasabi ni kuya Pin [Marc Pingris] na kung gusto niyo manalo ng championship, kunin niyo," he added.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»
