I hate: High School Musical Series

To start with, I don't consider this a movie or even a musical. I’m a fan of musical shows and movies but I don’t dig musicals that delve into the modern pop culture. To put it simply, it’s like one big concert with a lousy script to boot.

Of course, this is just my opinion *cough* negative feedback *cough* on this movie. Of course, I really didn’t expect Disney to be able to produce a “musical” such as this. I really didn’t get the entire plot of the movie, since I was pissed off at watching the song and dance routines of the stars. It’s like watching high school kids on drugs and then acting off. I do give credit to the choreography but come on; putting effort into something like that may as well end up doing a classical piece or Broadway performance. Not to mention that the actress, Vanessa Hudgens got herself into a rut by showing off nude pictures of herself in the Net. Supposedly taken by her “boyfriend” Zac Efron, it’s caused quite a commotion for Disney, fans, and parents. Vanessa Hudgens, as a typical Disney star, is supposed to be looked up to by teenage girls and young girls alike. But unfortunately, with her recent escapade in to the lewd scenes, one cannot help but say “This girl’s such a waste” and all are hoping she doesn’t follow into the footsteps of Lindsay Lohan who’s caused quite a scene so far with her imprisonment and other issues.

Back to the topic, I find it hard to amuse myself watching this movie. Then again, it’s just my 2 cents.


I like: Pablo Francisco

First off, I’m a fan of standup comedy acts and I love their sick and wicked twisted sense of humor. The first ever standup comedian that I had the privilege of laughing at so hard is Pablo Francisco. What’s so special about this comedian? What makes him stand out from the rest?

Literally dubbed as an impressionist, his acts are comprised mostly of a hundred voices, especially the “movie voice over” guy. Adding to the humor and joke, he never fails to make audience laugh so hard by sounding like a girl to a beat box to a very famous character like Kermit the Frog. Of course, aside from the different variations of his voice, one cannot help but also laugh at his jokes. Though some may be offensive, people just don’t notice that the joke it’s offensive because on how he delivers his joke.

Here’s more info about the comedian []

In the 1990's, he began appearing on MADtv as a featured player. His stand-up act was finally introduced to America at large when he landed his own half-hour comedy special on Comedy Central Presents in 2000. In 2001 and 2002, Francisco toured as part of "The Three Amigos" with Carlos Mencia and Freddy Soto. Since then, he has performed on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, VH1's ILL-ustrated, Mind of Mencia as "The Voiceover Dude" (same as "Movie Voiceover Guy"), and most recently, Frank TV.

Francisco is widely recognized within the comedy business for his ability to do vocal impressions of famous people including Jackie Chan, Don LaFontaine, Aaron Neville, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Casey Kasem, Keanu Reeves, John Madden, Michael J. Fox, Jerry Springer, William Hung, Chris Rock, Danny Glover, and Gary Busey, as well as sound effects and character voices like Count Dracula (as a Spanish Radio DeeJay), Droopy Dog, Tony Montana, R2-D2, Kermit the Frog, Stone Cold Steve Austin, and Mr. Magoo. He also has a talent for beatboxing.

His shows are definitely worth watching and of course, it’s not for the short tempered.

Till then


TV Series Review: Supernatural

Starring Jensen Ackles & Jared Padalecki

The series revolves around the Winchester brothers, Dean and Sam. After their mother was murdered by a powerful demon, their father vowed vengeance and chased after the demon, taking Dean with him. Meanwhile, Sam leads a simple, normal life until his girlfriend suffered the same fate as his mother. Unbeknownst to him, Sam has not realized of his brother’s quest for a long time. At that time, Dean picked up Sam at the law school where Sam was currently attending and told him of what’s been going on. Parting ways with their father to chase after the demon, the two brothers end up going from town to town, killing monsters, exorcising spirits and picking up leads to the whereabouts of their father and the demon that killed their mother.

That pretty much sums up the entire synopsis of the series, now on its 4th season and of course, I have yet to watch season 3, this series is action packed with lots of twist and drama, and of course some wicked humor and the usual sibling rivalry. The monsters and ghouls that haunt the episodes are cool and scary to boot. Of course, the series wouldn’t be complete without monsters and ghouls, tackling some of the scariest urban legends and other campfire stories with a matching reference to boot. One cannot help but be drawn into the history and reference of the different kinds of ghouls in every episode. As the season goes on, more plots and twists develop, leaving viewers intrigued and begging for more. Some twists end up shocking the viewers, even me.

That’s all I can say for this series. I still have to watch Season 3 and I cannot wait to get my hands on Season 4. Till next time.


Heath Ledger's Praises as the Joker

One of the most villainous characters of the movie industry, The Joker.

Just recently, director Christopher Nolan released The Dark Knight, sequel to the box office hit, Batman Begins. With the success of the first movie, it was no surprise to me that the sequel would come less than its predecessor, and of course, satisfied the expectations of fans and critics.

Portrayed by the late actor Heath Ledger, who supposedly died of drug or medication overdose, this was his best (and sadly his last) performance to date.

I'm not really a big fan of his movies, but I was curious about his performance in his last movie. The more I read praises from critics and fans, the more I really wanted to see for myself how he portrayed the Joker. Sadly enough, I wasn't able to watch it at the big screen *cough* financial trouble *cough*.
But late last Tuesday night whilst rummaging thru the pirated DVD's, I found a decent copy of the Dark Knight. After checking its quality, I decided to buy it. I just found the time to watch the movie I bought last Tuesday night when I woke up at 8am this morning. The whole time I was watching the movie, my attention was more focused on the villain rather than the hero. His performance was just great, giving justice to the praises and performance of his previous predecessors who also portrayed the Joker in previous Batman films. I give him full praises and appreciation for a wonderful (and twisted) performance of one of the movie and comic industries' most sadistic and heinous villain of all time.

Heath Ledger, May your soul rest in peace.


Movie Review: Hancock

A superhero movie that went against the stereotypical superhero-movie genre. Hancock is a misunderstood superhero, as he causes more damages than saving lives or ending disasters. Unlike the other superheroes that we all grew to love, Hancock takes a different turn. For one thing, he's an asshole "as the people in the movie often call him". He doesnt give a damn about anyone or anything. In the early parts of the movie, Hancock's attire is different from the other superheroes with tight leather pants, and capes and boots. He wears a bonnet with an eagle design, and looks like a homeless person with his raggedy clothes.

I will not post the plot of the movie, since this is only a movie review.

What's there to like about this movie:

- if you're a fan of the superhero movies with lots of destruction, havoc, and chaos... this one's for you.
- its got a very good twist later on in the movie.
- nice special effects
- will smith (honestly, he's one bad-ass mofo.)
- charlize theron (she's soooo effing hot!)

What's not to like about this movie:

- fewer action scenes than anticipated
- we all love chaos and destruction and explosions but too much of something is never a good thing.

All in all, this movie is worth watching and should definitely be added to your DVD collections (if you have any though.)

But don't take my word for it. See for yourself and you be the judge.


Top 5 TV Villains That We Love to Hate

Following today's lineup of most watched TV series, fans can't help but admire and hate at the same time the series' antagonists. Whatever or whoever they may be or what their plans are, TV drama is just not the same if there are no characters from the dark. Below are the top 5 most evil villains of all time.

5.) Lex Luthor (Michael Rosenbaum - Smallville) - Superman's best friend turned worst enemy. Manipulative, intelligent and the attitude of "get the job done at any cost", it's no wonder everybody around Smallville share a similar amount of hatred for this sleazy bastard.

4.) Theodore Bagwell (Robert Knepper - Prison Break) - one of the series most hated characters. With a sadistic attitude, he manipulated Scoffield into letting him join his escape plans. With a variety of crimes committed like: rape, assault, kidnapping, murder, and the works, T-Bag is definitely somebody you shouldn't cross paths with.

3.) Yellow Eyed Demon (Fredric Lehne - Supernatural) - one of my favorite villains. after murdering dean and sam winchester's mom, he follows the winchester siblings into a series of adventures which then leads to the unveiling of his plans for sam. twists and turns are his specialty so expect to get a twist of the story everytime he pops up (until the end of season 2)

2.) Bizarro (Tom Wellings - Smallville) - yet again from the series, Smallville. at the start and end of season 6, Bizarro jumps from one host to another until he reunites with a kryptonian host (namely clark kent) and finally assumes a full body. with a nasty reputation in the comic book series, no doubt Bizarro is definitely tops when it comes to TV villains. Can't wait for future smallville series.

1.) Gabriel Sylar (Zachary Quinto - Heroes) - TV's sadistic bastard of the day (he makes Tony from the Sopranos look like a schoolgirl). He steals the powers of every special person he comes across during the entire season 1, with no regards for human life (he even killed his mother and killed Alejandro, Maya's brother and got it on with Maya... that is definitely sick!) as long as he gets what he wants. Manipulative, smart, charismatic and evil personified, Gabriel Sylar is definitely one of the most evil characters in TV history.
