For better or for worse

  Paolo Contis isn't the first actor who immediately comes to mind when tasked to think of a new big-screen consort for Alessandra de Rossi, especially after the latter's belated ascent to rom-com leading lady status in Sigrid Andrea Bernardo's crowd-pleasing "Kita Kita" (with Empoy Marquez) and Dondon S. Santos' dour "12" (with Ivan Padilla).   Indeed, seeing the chunky leading man going "pa-tweetums" with fit-as-a-fiddle Alessandra/Alex on the big screen needs some getting used to, but the offbeat energy that erupts when Paolo's irreverent humor blends with Alex's winsome wit provides the breath of fresh air the romance genre needs after a succession of ho-hum ta...Keep on reading: For better or for worse.....»»

According to a comedy short by BBC, written and directed by Jessica Swale, this is what usually happens during casting calls for the part of leading lady---more or less. In the star studded satirical piece, we see award-winning British actresses Gemma Chan, Emilia Clarke, Lena Headey, Felicity Jones, Stacy Martin, Wunmi Mosaku, Florence Pugh, and Katie Leung try to get the part of a movie's leading lady. The women do a reading for Jessica Swale, Gemma Arterton, and Anthony Welsh, a tough panel who schools them on what it really takes to bag the role.

Why its lead stars think ‘Write Moment’ will click with viewers

Valeen Montenegro is optimistic about the box-office chances of Dominic D. Lim's "The Write Moment," her big-screen partnership with comedian Jerald Napoles. She believes the movie will find an audience because, as she explains, "moviegoers are now looking for something other than the usual rom-com fare." "A plain-looking guy gets paired with a beautiful leading lady. Clearly, this [formula], as demonstrated by 'Kita Kita' has a large following," costar Jerald Napoles enthuses.

Hurting Banchero delivers impressive performance in honor of late best friend

It seemed like just another day at work for Chris Banchero. Alaska's combo guard was his usual hustling self, finishing with 19 points, five rebounds, and seven assists, in the Aces' 109-103 victory over the Batang Pier in the PBA Commissioner's Cup. Banchero, however, wasn't only fighting the Batang Pier but he was also pushing through the grief of losing his best friend Mike De Rossi who passed away on Thursday. "It's been a tough week for me. It's been tough man, he was like a brother to me," said Banchero who held back tears when talking to the media Saturday at Smart Araneta Coliseum. "I knew he was looking down on me today.

PBA: Emotional Banchero dedicates Alaska win to his late best friend

It's been a tough couple of days for Alaska guard Chris Banchero. Just last Thursday, Banchero lost his closest friend, Mike De Rossi. According to head coach Alex Compton, his point guard found out about the tragic news after he got off from the plane following a trip abroad. "I lost my best friend last Thursday. It's been a tough week for me," a teary-eyed Banchero told reporters Saturday after Alaska's win over Globalport in the 2018 PBA Commissioner's Cup. "It's been tough man. He was like a brother to me," he added. Despite dealing with that kind of emotional stress, Banchero was crucial in Alaska's comeback win over Globalport. He finished with 19 points, five rebounds, and seven assists for the Aces, erasing a 15-point deficit to keep their winning streak going at five games. "I knew he was looking down on me today with a couple of my shots," Banchero said. "Happy we got the win for him tonight. He's an incredible guy and I'm gonna miss him a lot," he added.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

Determined Dzeko delivers a Romantada over Barcelona

By Andrew Dampf, Associated Press ROME (AP) — Edin Dzeko surprised a lot of people when he turned down a lucrative offer from Premier League champion Chelsea in January to stay with Roma. Pledging his allegiance for Roma then, Dzeko declared that he was determined to accomplish something important with the Italian club. Consider his desire realized. Dzeko's sheer will and brute force were the primary reasons behind Roma's shocking elimination of Barcelona in the Champions League quarterfinals. The Bosnia and Herzegovina striker scored two goals and drew a penalty to set up another over the two legs as Roma clawed back from a three-goal deficit to advance to the semifinals. "I stayed with Roma to experience matches like these. I'm happy to be with Roma and I think the club should be, too," Dzeko said after Roma's 3-0 win Tuesday overturned a 4-1 first-leg defeat. "I turned down a lot of money by not going to Chelsea but that's not what I'm interested in. If we play like this we can play with anyone. I've never seen Barcelona in so much difficulty." Dzeko should know. He was on the Manchester City team that was eliminated by Barcelona in the last 16 in both 2014 and 2015. Roma suffocated Barcelona with high pressure, prompting the Catalan club to make a series of errant passes and turnovers. Barcelona had no answer for the aerial abilities of Dzeko and fellow forward Patrik Schick, who was the revelation of the night. Sparingly used previously this season due to a series of injuries, the 22-year-old Czech Republic striker had been set to join Juventus during the offseason but the deal collapsed because of a reported heart problem. So Roma picked him up instead from Sampdoria, where Schick scored 11 Serie A goals last season. Cengiz Under, another young attacking player, scored six goals for Roma in February and March and returned from injury by coming off the bench in the second leg. The 20-year-old Turkey winger's corner set up the header from Kostas Manolas that provided Roma's third goal. That came moments before Stephan El Shaarawy, another speedy and talented winger, was denied from close range. In all, Roma is developing a wealth of options in attack that combine velocity and strength, and Roma coach Eusebio Di Francesco was hailed for his 3-4-1-2 formation. "We had never tried it before but over just three days he got it into our heads," said Roma captain Daniele De Rossi, who converted a penalty for Roma's second goal. "After the first leg we saw that the gap between us and them wasn't really all that large." Own-goals from De Rossi and Manolas handed Barcelona a 2-0 lead last week but Dzeko's late consolation goal in that match proved decisive when Roma advanced on away goals. Dzeko also scored the key goal when Roma eliminated Shakhtar Donetsk in the last 16. He has six goals in all in this season's competition. "The best is yet to come. The semifinal will be even greater," Dzeko said. "But of course, tonight is unforgettable," Dzeko added. "I don't have an adjective to describe it. Let's just say it was a crazy match — incredible. Nobody believed in us." Roma fans celebrated throughout the night, waving flags and driving scooters around the central Piazza Venezia. "Imperiali!" — Imperials — said the headline in Wednesday's Gazzetta dello Sport. French sports daily L'Equipe labeled it a "Romantada" — a play on the Spanish word "remuntada," which translates as comeback. It's the first time that Roma has reached the last four since it lost the 1984 final to Liverpool on penalties in its own stadium. The semifinal draw is scheduled for Friday and so far the only other club which has advanced is Liverpool, which is spearheaded by former Roma striker Mohamed Salah. While Roma keeps on surprising in the Champions League — see its 3-0 domination of Chelsea in the group stage — the Giallorossi have struggled in Serie A. Roma is fourth in the Italian league, a distant 21 points behind leader Juventus and level on points with Lazio entering Sunday's Rome derby. "Honestly I don't know why we can't transfer the mentality we have in the Champions League to Serie A," said Dzeko, who led Serie A with 29 goals last season. Still, this season already marks a turning point for Roma's American ownership team led by Boston executive James Pallotta. Roma has received preliminary approval to build a long-delayed new stadium with a design inspired by the Colosseum. The Champions League success might help speed up the stadium process — especially if Roma reaches the final in Kiev. "We can't think like we've achieved a miracle," De Rossi said. "We've got to keep playing and try to go all the way.".....»»
