ABC Family’s Wildfire… in Fremont?

Its funny how ABC Family’s Wildfire paints the Bay Area as some kind of country/open land… I never knew there were tons of ranches in Fremont… lol

Review Shortcuts: Sandara Park and Hero Angeles in Can This Be Love

HAPPY FATHER’S DAY

I’m very full… lol… but being Filipino and having a family party, that’s understandable…


Finally got to watch CAN THIS BE LOVE… Typical ABS-CBN romantic comedy… especially with Hero and Sandara… Its their first headlining movie… And of course, it was the sweet, filled with kilig moments type of movie… with the mandatory crying scenes and fight… Anyway, I’m a Hero and Sandara fan… even though they’re “having problems” now… lol…
It was great seeing Roxanne in a movie… She was very good, especially in the scene where she slaps Joross… 🙂 … I always thought Hero and Roxanne would’ve made a better loveteam… SCQ2’s Paw Diaz and Aaron Villaflor were in the movie too… I don’t even know who they are… lol… Tirso Cruz was in the movie too, which was a surprise…
So good movie… you should watch it… but with the knowledge and an appreciation for what Filipino movies are like and can be… 😉

The most memorable quote:
Tita Tancing: “Anak ya nang youngest sister ko, si Louie. Naku, nag hihintay na lang yong petition yan. Kasi, yung American citizenship ng kapatid ko, approvahan na. Pupunta sa ‘States’… excited na nga yan eh…”
Louie: “Ayaw ko doon… si mommy na man yong gusto pumunta doon eh…
Tita Tancing: “Anong ma gagawa mo kung gusto ng mommy mo?”
Louie: “Iinis ‘ko sa mga ”Cano’…”
Tita Tancing: “Naku… Iinis sa mga ”Cano’? Hip-Hop ka ng Hip Hop”

(in English… though obviously not translated word for word… I’m just copying the subtitles…) its funnier in Tagalog though…
Tita Tancing: “He’s Louie, the child of our youngest sister. He’s just waiting for his petition papers. My sister’s American citizenship has just been approved. He’ll be going to the US soon, he’s so excited.”
Louie: “I don’t want to go… It’s just my mom who wants me to.”
Tita Tancing: “What can you do if that’s what your mother wants?”
Louie: “I don’t like Americans.”
Tita Tancing: “You don’t like them but you keep singing hip hop!”

and my new favorite expression: “Gots me?” or “Gots mo?” with the reply “Gots ko”… lol

Lost, Alias and Power Rangers DinoThunder

LOST SEASON FINALE ABC
OMG… “The Others” appear out of nowhere… that was “Dark Shadows” freaky… I was expecting them to say that they were all already dead or something, they looked like it… Taking Walt? wow… what are they going to do to him? and then The Others blowing up the raft…

I think that was the only major twist tonight… we didn’t get to see what was inside the hatch… just a long passage/tunnel/thing into the ground… And the monster? what the hell was that black smoke? Is the dinosaur a witch or something and can transform into a puff of smoke?

Overall, it was still an awesome episode…

ALIAS SEASON FINALE ABC
We get back to the Rambaldi stuff… and that big red ball exploding into water like in season one’s finale with Vaughn getting stuck in the room after that red ball exploded… those infected zombies were pretty freaky too… were they supposed to bring on the end of the world? So the small device was just a blueprint of sorts for the big device? I get it now…

And I was saying to myself… “wow… is Alias going to have a happy ending for once?” and of course, here comes Vaughn saying it isn’t his real name and then some truck hits them from the side… that took me completely by surprise, I jumped out of my seat…

JJ ABRAMS is a genius… a pure genius… man I wish I could be like him…

Yes!!! POWER RANGERS: DINOTHUNDER is back on Weekdays on ABC Family (beginning June 13th)
Even though I have all the episodes anyway, it’ll be nice to see it back on ABCFam… what a damn good show… (but it would’ve been better if Conner and Kira hooked up… geez)

The Contender Series Finale

THE CONTENDER SERIES FINALE
There better be a rematch… and it better not depend on whether or not NBC is happy with the damn ratings…
I’ve been rooting for Peter Manfredo, Jr. since the very beginning and again, I was just speechless at why he wasn’t fighting his best… I only saw a few good punches, and he is capable of so much more… man was I pissed… One of the things that’s really annoyed me with all the Contenders, and maybe its just the way they edit the episodes, but its their inability to follow-up a good punch.
Damn… I still wish I was in Vegas though… what it must have felt like in that arena tonight (regardless of Justin and Cameron being there… at least they were rooting for Peter, it seemed like)… earlier today, Jimmy Lange won which is good… but Bonsante vs. Ishe Smith turned out to be one dirty fight… WTF is up with Bonsante? geez…
I would have prefered Jesse winning the Bronze, but oh well… and Peter better get a shot at a rematch long before Alfonso gets to fight Mora…

Veronica Mars, Lost, Alias, Revelations, The Contender

VERONICA MARS SEASON FINALE UPN

YES! Duncan and Veronica are NOT brother and sister…. so now they can go back to being a legitimate couple… He was sooo at the door at the end of the episode… So the wierd movie actor guy killed her becuase she had the disgusting sex tapes… how Hollywood… lol… The last scenes of the episode were scary… Veronica in the ice box was like Sydney in a coffin on an episode of ALIAS this season… I thought Aaron Echolls almost losing his arm to Backup and then getting hit by a truck was both funny and very random… anyway, UPN better move VM to another timeslot becuase I’m getting a little tired of taping it… lol


LOST ABC

Hmm… nothing too shocking… Walt was being his wierd self… Kate has some kind of freaky supernatural power too… she killed her mother? by touching her hand… or maybe she had a needle or poison or something, I dunno… Nothing too special really…


ALIAS ABC
Haven’t seen it yet, but Sloane’s wife is back for one episode… her death episode was one of the best… Anyway… Lena Olin finally stopped being stubborn and greedy and is finally back as Irina Derevko next week… lol

REVELATIONS NBC

Oh man, I was screaming “RUN THOSE FREAKS OVER!” Why couldn’t they have just run over those satanists with the tank? They had to go out and actually fire their weapons… darn… and of course more eerie stuff… Olivia’s death was so sad… the Sister going to see where they took her and then her seeing them taking her heart out… and then Olivia being led to heaven by the Doc’s daughter… wow… and then the last scene with Hawk walking into fire… geez… next week is the finale… should be amazing…


THE CONTENDER NBC

I hope Manfredo wins it all… I am so glad Jesse beat that cocky Alfonso… His daughter was pretty sad though…

Goblet of Fire Looks Freakin’ Awesome

Damn… this movie looks freakin’ awesome…







Hmm… Krum looks like Orlando Bloom, but I remember when there were rumors that Orlando was going to be Cedric… lol…

Best Contender of the Season

THE CONTENDER
THE. BEST. EPISODE. OF. THE. SEASON.
What a fight… I would’ve prefered Manfredo and Gilbert meet in the final 4 instead of the elite 8… but still, it was an amazing fight… I wouldn’t have expected Joey Gilbert to come alive in the 3rd and 4th round especially after getting his ribs mashed up in the 1st… He really does have a big heart, a lot of determination… Peter Manfredo, I still don’t know why he hasn’t been fighting at his best… He should’ve have beaten his last 3 opponents easier than he had (and of course, he should’ve won against Alfonso in the first round of the tournament). Anyway, that was the best fight of the series, definitely… just an amazing fight…
I’ve rooted for Manfredo since the beginning and I really can’t root for anyone else… maybe Sergio Moya or Jesse Brinkley… not really for Alfonso… and definitely not for Anthony Bonsante…
I wish I could go to the finale, but $175 each for tickets!!!! Darn…
