Paulo raring to do another musical–this time, for the stage

  We've long admired Paulo Avelino, as much for his taste in movies ("Ang Sayaw ng Dalawang Kaliwang Paa," "Heneral Luna," "Debosyon") as it is for his carefully calibrated acting choices ("Sana Dati," "The Unmarried Wife," where he manages to transcend the inherent limitations of his largely decorative role). The 29-year-old heartthrob further enriches his mainstream cred with brave forays into the indie film scene: In Ruel Bayani's "Kasal," he figures in a romantic roundelay with Bea Alonzo and Derek Ramsay, while in "Goyo: Ang Batang Heneral," Jerrold Tarog's much-awaited followup to the indie blockbuster "Heneral Luna," the dashing actor plays the coveted title role. ...Keep on reading: Paulo raring to do another musical–this time, for the stage.....»»

‘Ready Player One’ is the ultimate geek cinematic experience

SOMETIMES there are movie projects that just seem to be the product of destiny. Steven Spielberg has long been an auteur of wonder, reshaping pop culture with memorable movies such as 1975's "Jaws" and 1993's "Jurassic Park." It could be argued that the director has developed a habit of shaping his own worlds. Thus it's only right that he should be the one to bring Ernest Cline's 2001 iconic sci-fi novel "Ready Player One" to the screen; in effect, Spielberg would be building a world about building worlds. It is 2045, and the world population spends most of their time in a virtual reality platform known as the OASIS. When the OASIS creator James Halliday (Mark Rylance) dies, he l...Keep on reading: ‘Ready Player One’ is the ultimate geek cinematic experience.....»»
