Rakenrol Theatrical Trailer

I seriously need to watch this asap. Long live Pinoy Indie Films! ā¤ Theatrical release was just this September 21. I need to watch it NOW or it might stop showing soon!

Movie info from a youtube video. šŸ™‚

At long last, after 5 years in the making, director Quark Henares‘s RAKENROL is finally coming out. The much-anticipated movie is Henares and co-writer Diego Castillo‘s (guitarist of Sandwich and music video director) ode to the Philippine rock music scene, which both consider their home. In the film, Irene (Glaiza de Castro, Grazilda, Amaya) and Odie (Jason Abalos, Endo, Mara Clara) are outsiders who become best friends because of their common love for rock n’ roll. Odie eventually falls in love with Irene, and helps fulfill her dream of forming a band. They recruit an ex-punk-turned-barista named Mo (Ketchup Eusebio, Guns and Roses, My Amnesia Girl) and the school bully Junfour (Alwyn Uytingco, Imortal, Ang Tanging Ina movies), deciding to call their band HAPIPAKS. In the process, Irene is wooed by her “all-time supercrush”, the famous rockstar Jacci Rocha (Diether Ocampo), Will Odie’s love for music and Irene prevail, or will the one thing that brought them together end up destroying them? The supporting characters add color and humor to the cast, with Ramon Bautista as the music video director Flame TigerblĆ¼den, Ricardo Cepeda as a samurai marketing guru, Jun Sabayton as Mo’s artist roommate, Hiyasmin Neri as Junfour’s pregnant girlfriend, and Matet de Leon as… Matet de Leon.

RAKENROL is brought to you by Reality Entertainment, Inc., FURBALL and Postmanila.

Zombadings Music Video: Naibang Gabi by Johnoy Danao

Since I’m so not over Zombadings yet, here’s a music video released around a week ago as a promotional music video. It’s for Naibang Gabi by Johnoy Danao. Senti much. Enjoy! ā¤

Zombadings 1: Patayin sa Shokot si Remington will show on theaters nationwide this August 31!. I recommend this film for all people who just wanna enjoy, and tear up a bit, and see Kerbie Zamora. Haha! I’m such a fangirl! Expect a slew of Zombadings post from me! XD Do watch it. It is so fun! It’s Graded A by the Cinema Evaluation Board and MTRCB graciously classified it as PG-13. YEAH, BABY!

I am seriously tempted to watch it AGAIN. ā¤

Film Review: Zombadings 1: Patayin sa Shokot si Remington (2011)

Just wanna say that this movie was HILARIOUS! I can’t do any formatting of the words HILARIOUS and FUNNY to emphasize the stomach aches I experienced due to excessive laughing brought about by this film. We were on the front seats (THE FIRST ROW) and we just laughed until we can’t laugh anymore. We were clapping so much and dying from laughter. It was so FUN. And the leads are such EYECANDIES. Hope to edit this post and do a proper review or spazz about it. Just can’t get over Kerbie Zamora right now. ā¤ Props to Raymond Lee who wrote the script and Jade Castro who directed the movie. It was a blast!

Zombadings: Patayin sa Shokot si Remington IN CINEMAS AUGUST 31!


Someone commented in my post HERE that it will be theatrically released on August 31 so I made some googling and saw it in the movie’s Facebook page HERE, that YEAH! IN CINEMAS AUGUST 31!

My friends and I are actually watching it next week here in UP and I just claimed our tickets! It’s Php 100 for one ticket. I dunno if my friends will get mad at me that we’re watching it in UP when it will be shown in cinemas. But I don’t care. Haha! We already bought it! Besides, we’ll watch it first before the whole nation! (Though some people already watched it in Cinemalaya.)

Anyway, watch the trailer HERE! And screening dates in UP HERE!

I hope everyone watches this film! I heard it’s really funny!

Zombadings: Patayin sa Shokot si Remington Trailer

I really wanna see this film! I hope it will be released. (hoping eyes)

Zombading: Patayin sa Shokot si Remington is a gay horror-comedy Ā Filipino indie film starring Mart Escudero and directed by Jade Castro. I read about this in a magazine but I can’t find articles on the Internet so I’m not sure if the info I’ll be giving is right. I’ll just type what I remember. Remington (Mart Escudero) is a typical tambay and I think he’s a homophobe. Zombadings (portmanteau of zombies and bading) are roaming in his town and they are passing their curse. Blahblahblah Remington can’t escape his fate to be gay and he’s falling in love with his friend while being in love with a girl. HAHAHAHA! The film also stars Janice de Belen as Remington’s mom and she’a also a police officer so that should complicate things, huh. Eugene Domingo, Lauren Young and Roderick Paulate also stars in this film with Marian Rivera appearing in a cameo role as an albularyo. Heehee. Can’t remember much, I just know that from the looks of it, it’s a really funny film!

I really need to watch this. Stills and poster after the jump!
