Deathly Hallows soon!

Here’s the first look of the 2-part conclusion to one of the most successful movie franchise ever. I can’t wait to catch it certainly but I have this feeling like I don’t want it to come for this will mean the beginning of the end. But it has to happen and I guess it is better to end it in a grand way. Part 1 will be on November 2010 and and part 2 on July 2011, I kind of want to read the book again… hmmm I’ve got plenty of time so I’m pretty sure I will, just to refresh my memory. Til then I’ll be eagerly anticipating. 🙂

Countdown to New Xtina!

Choice Hottie for March: Daniel Matsunaga

They call it the “Brapanese” invasion. I say, I don’t care where they came from but they are some fine specimen and they can keep coming here as long as they want. You may already know Aki as one of my choice hottie posts and Hideo Muraoka (center) from F&H ads, but this one is all about Daniel Matsunaga (first one on the left).

He is such a cutie and once again what a nice smile and his body is just, well, perfect. He has been in the local scene for a while now, appearing in primetime shows (yes, acting stints) and mostly modeling jobs. His rise to fame here, I think, came from being featured as one of Cosmo’s 2009 Centerfolds. And guess what, he was rumored to be having such a blast in Manila that he’s actually planning to become a citizen. Oh please, Republic of the Philippines, please say YES! 🙂 See more of this charming fellow after the jump…

Bad Girl GaGa!

Telephone has premiered today on E!. This video marking the 2nd collaboration between GaGa and B has been much-anticipated and talked about.

More like a short film (it’s over 9 minutes long), it didn’t relate to the song once again kind of what happened to Paparazzi which coincidentally is where the story picked up. I immediately loved this track upon hearing The Fame Monster and its supposed to be a fun song – about dancing and stuff but instead she turned it into one of her creepy, twisted creations. Beyonce a.k.a. “Honey B” was also just as weird. There where funny parts though, I did laugh on the line saying: “You know what they say, once you kill the cow, you’ve got to make a burger.” And I know we’re talking about GaGa here but the wardrobe, man! There’s really nothing much.

In a nutshell, I didn’t like it. Still think the song is awesome! And oh, you can watch the video here. 🙂

Eclipse trailer unveiled…

To be honest I’m not super excited about this because of the outcome of the last Twilight Saga film. I don’t want to expect and so I’ll judge it when I really see it. Anyways, here’s the trailer much-awaited by everyone else (hehe).

Mr. JT, what you got for me?

Confirmed!!! Justin Timberlake’s sexy back will be making an appearance on Timbaland’s tour here in Manila. I know it would’ve been better the other way around, but as the concert’s producers claimed he will be performing a minimum of 8 songs live and in flesh! I’ve been waiting for this and I swear I WILL go see this. And I don’t mind Timbaland at all, plus you have Jojo too. Mark your calendars: March 27, 2010 @ the SM Mall of Asia Concert Grounds.

Ticket prices:

VIP – P4,651.20

Gold – P3,100.80

Silver – P1,550.40

Bronze – P310.08

Timbo & JT at it again!

Timbaland presents Shock Value II, the new album. The single’s called Carry Out featuring Justin Timberlake, I can tell this track will be a crowd pleaser and a club banger. Check it!

GaGa Ooh La La!

Okay, we get it!!! You can wear anything… even a freakin’ studded LOBSTER on your forehead, some plastic cutouts and that creepy hand as accessory. Sheesh. Where’s that lady from the Poker Face video I loved? Please bring her back!

Flashforward to great TV…

“On October 6, the planet blacked out for 2 minutes and 17 seconds. The whole world saw the future.”

How’s that as a premise for a TV series? Pretty interesting, right? And I’m telling you some good stuff too. ABC premiered a new science fiction show called Flash Forward last Fall of 2009 and it’s unlike anything I watch or used to watch. I usually don’t go for the action type but this one got me curious and I was immediately glued to the screen; finishing 6 episodes at first, probably because every single one leaves you with gripping cliffhangers. Now that I’ve already watched every episode sans the new ones that will be premiered this March 2010; it gave way to the Winter Olympics, I simply can’t wait for the conclusion. Oh sorry, I forgot – let me fill you in. I’ll give you a very non-spoiler summary. 🙂 It’s about the aftershock of this global event when people across the globe blacked out simultaneously, killing millions of people and how those who survived are dealing with the “visions” they saw of their lives about six months later (April 2010). That’s the argument: whether to believe that the “flash forward” is inevitable or may be some sort of “warning” so people can be able to change it. The story revolves around the character, Mark Benford, an L.A. FBI agent who had “seen” himself investigating on who or what caused the blackout, whether it’ll happen again and somehow, one by one pieces are put together, evidences are revealed and leads are discovered. Other issues such as: what triggered for people to see their future during the blackout? and did it really happen to everyone around the world? or did everyone saw something during the blackout?, will make you think long after watching.

A novel of the same name written by Robert J. Sawyer was released in 1999 which is where the show was based upon; though having notable differences such as, the show following non-scientist characters and changing the flash forward to 6 months instead of 21 years. It features mostly unknown actors (as far as I’m concerned) which is actually a good thing, we love to see fresh faces. Although, if you’re following the outrageous movies, Harold and Kumar, you may know John Cho and the lead played by Shakespeare In Love actor, Joseph Fiennes. Definitely a must-watch, go see it.
