Will There Be An "Aquaman" Movie Coming Soon?


With "Batman vs Superman" movie in the works, moviegoers, fans, and netizens are asking will there be an "Aquaman" movie coming soon? If DC Entertainment are planning to have a "Justice League" movie in the future, then surely, an "Aquaman" movie must be in the works, too?

Well, the fans' speculations of an upcoming "Aquamanmovie must come to an end because Warner Bros. are confirming that they are already hiring not just one but two screenwriters to write two separate scripts of the said movie.

Just recently, the movie production outfit, Warner Bros. hired the talents of "Gangster Squad" writer, Will Beall and "300: Rise of an Empire" writer Kurt Johnstad to write separate scripts for "Aquaman," one of the installments of the multi-movie DC Comics characters' cinematic universe. Maybe they are planning to have a head-to-head cinematic combat against Marvel Entertainment which already introduced some of the characters in the Marvel Universe in the same multi-movie platform schemes.

What really "controversial" about this hiring of two separate writers to write the "Aquamanmovie scripts is that both screenwriters are writing for the same project. It's a battle between the screenwriters on whoever gets the better version of the story wins. This practice is said to allow for release dates to be set while an ongoing project is still in the works. It is speculated that Warner Bros. will have at least nine untitled DC Comics character movies in the coming years. But the movie outfit is not talking or commenting about their upcoming movie projects.

'Banana Nite' Comedian Jobert Austria aka 'Kuya Jobert' Attempts Suicide

Comedian Jobert Austria a.k.a. "Kuya Jobert" of ABS-CBN late night comedy show "Banana Nite" was on the news yesterday after an attempt to jump off a building of a Hotel in Quezon Avenue in Quezon City.

The comedian told the QCPD policemen who took custody of him that his life was in danger after her girlfriend's former partner sent him death threats. The former partner found his whereabouts via his cellphone's tracking device and sent him malicious texts about killing him. This made Jobert Austria depressed and feared for his life and decided to have an attempt to jump off the building of the hotel. The comedian is said to having personal problems. Luckily, Jobert Austria (Kuya Jobert) did not continue to jump off the building and is now safe. An investigation is going on about this incident. (Source)

It's so unfortunate that this suicide attempt has to occur when people are depressed or having a depression. Ending your life is not the solution to your problems. We've lost a seasoned comedian in Hollywood via Robin Williams and I cannot afford to lose another comedian via Kuya Jobert this time. I'm sure Kuya Jobert can handle all these things. Jobert Austria a.k.a. Kuya Jobert is one of the funny guys on YouTube way back in his simpler days, when he was not yet an "artista" and known only as Kuya Jobert. I remember his videos in YouTube and watching them again also bring back funny moments.

Below are three of what I think are the best videos of Jobert Austria a.k.a. Kuya Jobert.

Kuya Jobert: Peras



Kuya Jobert: Dingdong



Kuya Jobert: Kamias

ABS-CBN's "Pure Love" Starring Alex Gonzaga an Adaptation from "49 Days" Korean Drama

UPDATE: ABS-CBN is currently playing on Primetime Bida slot an adaptation of this popular Korean drama which stars Alex Gonzaga, Yen Santos, Arjo Atayde, Yam Concepcion, Joseph Marco, and Matt Evans. Alex Gonzaga plays Diane, the rich girl whose soul wanders around after a car accident to search for pure love tears. Matt Evans is playing the role of Scheduler.

The difference between the Korean drama and this adaptation is that Diane should gather pure love tears in 40 days' time not 49 days as what the Korean drama suggested. Filipinos believe that souls of the departed loved ones wander for 40 days before it goes to heaven unlike in Korea, they believe that souls wander for 49 days. As of this writing, Diane is already on her 11th day as a soul wanderer. Below is the official full trailer of ABS-CBN's "Pure Love" starring Alex Gonzaga. The official soundtrack "Gisingin ang Puso" is interpreted by Aiza Seguerra. The texts following the trailer were a repost of what I have written in 2011 for comparison.




________________________

I just read the spoiler ending of "49 Days" also known as "Pure Love" now showing on ABS-CBN that I stumbled upon in a blogsite. The blogsite's link was given to me by a friend of mine. I wish he did not give it to me. Hahaha.. oh well... moving on!

The ending of "Pure Love" Korean drama really bothers me as per what I had read about it, the ending is something that people really don't expect and makes you think and realize why did the writer/s of this Korean drama had put so much "trials" to the main character Diane (tagalized version name) played by Nam Gyu-ri. Oh well... even though I already know the ending, and I really can't forget it right now, I will still continue to watch it on ABS-CBN's Primetime Bida block.

She is given a second chance at life by a reaper, but it comes with a condition: she has to find three people outside of her family who would cry genuine tears for her.

Home Cleaning For Kids: Simple Ways to Remove The Clutter


Cleaning can be a hard task to do. When things are all scattered around in your home or in your room, it is experiencing a "clutter". A cluttered home/room is an unorganized home/room. Sometimes when you want to start cleaning your cluttered home/room, it's really hard to know where to start the cleaning.

But there are simple ways to remove the clutter in your home or room. Soon after, you'll see that your home/room is as spic-and-span as before. Here are simple ways to remove the clutter in your home:

Home Cleaning Ideas for Kids

  • Dirty clothes should be put inside a laundry basket and not on top of bed or on the floor. If you have dirty clothes all over your room, and your room stinks already, you may asked your mother to buy you a laundry basket. You may also practice your hoops while putting the dirty clothes into the basket.
  • Scattered books can get dust that will make your books ugly. If you love reading books, you don't want to make your books ugly, right? You may ask your parents to provide a bookshelf and organize all your books there. You may also put a mattress on the floor or a reading table near the bookshelf and turn that place into a reading nook or a personal library. This way, you can have a place to study or read in your free time.
  • Unused toys and other items can be placed inside a big box with cover and be put under the bed or somewhere that seems to be organized such as the top of a cabinet, or under the cupboard. The toy box should have cover to prevent cockroaches lay their eggs on your toys. Cockroaches love smelly or dark areas where they can hide and lay eggs. If your toy box has a cover, you may prevent cockroaches from spreading. Not only that, you may also preserve the quality of your toys, especially if they are collectible ones.
  • As for clean clothes, they should not mixed up with the dirty ones. Clean clothes should be inside a clothes cabinet or inside a plastic box organizer with cover. Clean clothes should be organized and well-ironed. When your mother is using a fabric conditioner, having a covered plastic organized will preserved the fragrance of the clothes even longer.
  • And finally, shoes and slippers should not be kept in a closed cabinet. They should be put in an open cabinet where air can freely flow through. You can prevent smelly shoes and slippers if the cabinet is also near a sun-lit area. The sun may serve as deodorizer to the shoes and slippers which kills the germs on it. 
So there. If you want to live a clean life inside your home or your room, you may follow the steps given above to become organized and free from clutter dilemma. Home cleaning is easy! I'll leave you with this video on how to remove your clutter from your home from a newscast on ABC's WCPO.

"Fantastic Four" Movie Reboot Confirmed Cast


A few months ago, Marvel Studios announced that the 2005 movie "Fantastic Four" starring Jessica Alba, Chris Evans, Ioan Gruffudd, Michael Chiklis, Julian McMahon, and Kerry Washington will have an ultimate reboot perhaps to include a story arc where the rebooted Amazing Spiderman movie starring Andrew Garfield will finally crossover and join the ultimate four.

The new movie to be released by 20th Century Fox is entitled "The Ultimate Fantastic Four" which is based on a Marvel comics arc of the same title. The reboot update of the movie will focus on the characters as young men and women and not as adults as what were featured in the first two films.

Well... if this is the case, I guess it's really time to get a reboot of the movie since 1) it was already ten years ago since the first "Fantastic Four" movie was shown, 2) Spiderman has also rebooted on the big screen which already have two successful movie releases, this is if Marvel Studios is planning a crossover movie, and 3) Chris Evans who played the Human Torch in the first two "Fantastic Four" movies is already Captain America and is doing well on the big screen.

"The Ultimate Fantastic Four" Confirmed Cast


The rebooted movie "The Ultimate Fantastic Four" will have two "That Awkward Moment" stars, Billy Elliot, and a House of Card star. Below are the confirmed cast of "The Ultimate Fantastic Four" reboot movie.

Kate Mara as The Invisible Woman
Jamie Bell as The Thing
Miles Keller as Mr. Fantastic
Michael B. Jordan as The Human Torch
Toby Kebbel as Dr. Doom
Tim Blake Nelson as Harvey Elder

"The Ultimate Fantastic Four" movie reboot will be directed by Josh Trank and is expected to be shown on June 19, 2015.

UPDATE: ABS-CBN's "Ikaw Lamang" Book 1 Ending: How It Ended?


ABS-CBN's epic period drama teleserye, "Ikaw Lamang" Book 1 has come to an end (winning their five-month run), but wait there's more, as their "Ikaw Lamang" Book 2 teaser trailer says, "the end is only the beginning" will finally unfold next week! New set of characters, new plots, and new twists of events are expected to happen as "Ikaw Lamang" Book 2 awaits the televiewers.

About "Ikaw Lamang" Book 1


"Ikaw Lamang" Book 1 spans three arcs of stories which were unfolded during its run: from 1) Elena-Eduardo-Miranda love triangle, to the 2) childhood days of Samuel, Isabelle, Mona, and Franco, up to the 3) adulthood days of the four main characters that were set in the 1950's up to the early 1980's. The events that had happened in the past will be very significant in the present as "Ikaw Lamang" opens it's Book 2 in the coming days. In the Book 2 era, the third generation of Severinos and Hidalgos will continue its epic war of greed, power, deceitfulness, tragedy, and love.

In this fourth arc of "Ikaw Lamang" (Book 2), the son of Samuel, Gabriel, will grow into an adult who will fall in love with Andrea, daughter of Isabelle. Natalia, the first daughter of Isabelle, will make the lives of the two miserable. Samuel, Isabelle, and Franco will grow into adults who are in their late 50's or probably in their 60's. As a new arc of storyline reveals, new set of characters will also be added in "Ikaw Lamang" Book 2.

But what happened in "Ikaw Lamang" Book 1? Let's do a recap:


During the Book 1 of "Ikaw Lamang," a lot of things had happened. Here are some of the events of the past that might help in the events of the present time generation. (Note: item 1 is a back story only.)

1) Elena and Eduardo had an affair. When Maximo found out that Elena was pregnant, he manipulated a robbery that led to Elena's unfortunate imprisonment and then later on, an exile away from the town of Salvacion. Eduardo married Miranda, Maximo's daughter, without Eduardo knowing that Elena was pregnant to his son who will later known as Samuel.

2) Years later, Elena came back to Salvacion, along with her family and her only son, Samuel, due to some economic reasons. The Severinos came back as obreros in sacadas (seasonal sugar plantation workers). They were hired by Don Gonzalo.

3) The young Samuel met the young Isabelle during a fire in the sugar plantation. Days before this event had happened, Samuel and Franco were already friends. Samuel rescued Isabelle in the fire but it was Franco who claimed to rescue Isabelle. The truth was revealed by the help of Governor Eduardo and found out that it was Samuel who really rescued Isabelle. The feud between Samuel and Franco began during these times.

4) A few days later, Isabelle was brought to London to begin her study abroad. Franco planned a trip to London and find a school there. He knew that Isabelle was going to study there. Several years later, Isabelle and Franco came back, Franco proposed to Isabelle but was rejected. Isabelle fell in love with Samuel, but Franco hindered their love in a lot of ways. Eventually, Franco got Isabelle due to their family's debt and to save their family's land ownership.

5) Before Isabelle and Franco's wedding, Samuel planned an escaped. Samuel and Isabelle eloped and went to another town far away from Salvacion. But unfortunate things happened, Maximo's followers found their location and kidnapped Samuel. In order to save Samuel's life, Isabelle was forced to marry Franco. Franco later on found out his true identity --  he was the real and only son of Governor Eduardo Hidalgo to Elena Severino. Things later changed for Samuel's life.

6) When Samuel found out the marriage of Franco and Isabelle, he was depressed. Mona, Samuel's lifetime friend comforted him and something happened to them. Mona got pregnant, Samuel married her later on. Isabelle found out and got depressed. Mona and Isabelle gave birth at the same time. Mona's son, Gabriel was kidnapped by Don Gonzalo, Isabelle's father, for ransom, but was rescued by her. Gabriel was returned to Mona and Samuel. Mona got jealous of Isabelle's love for Samuel. Then Mona and Samuel went to Manila to study and have a quiet life.

7) Several years later, Mona and Samuel went back to Salvacion due to his father's (still Governor Eduardo) invitation to his wedding with Samuel's mother, Elena. Years before that, Eduardo's wife, Miranda was shot by his own father, Maximo as he was chasing Don Gonzalo in the woods. This event led to the departure of Samuel and Mona to Manila. Meanwhile, Franco was now the Mayor of Salvacion. When Samuel visited his friends at the sugar plantation, he found out the scam that Mayor Franco was doing. The funds that was supposed to be for the obreros were used by Franco in other ways.

8) When Samuel found out the poor situation of the obreros, this event led to Samuel's candidacy for governor to help the poor people of Salvacion. But Maximo was determined to perish Samuel and his family. During the election process, Samuel's wife Mona was shot in an ambush and died. They knew Maximo was behind all the mishaps that happened with the Severinos, so Eduardo was determined to track down Maximo's location and had him arrested. When they found Maximo's location, Eduardo and some of the policemen were killed by Maximo in a raid. Samuel was spared but Eduardo's life wasn't.

9) Maximo was shot and had a hospital arrest. When Maximo was detained, he knew he will never likely to get out, so he faked his death by committing suicide. Maximo was placed inside a coffin along with his wealth. But Don Gonzalo found out this plan through Isabelle, and immediately went to hunt for his whereabouts. When Gonzalo and Paquito (Gonzalo's trusted follower) had known Maximo's whereabouts, they had Maximo tasted his own medicine by burying him alive with live venomous snakes inside his coffin.

10) Meanwhile, a plan to escape Isabelle from Franco's hands was executed. Franco was now in manhunt for Samuel and his family's whereabouts. He has given a reward money to anyone who will pinpoint their location. Will Samuel's and Isabelle's family escape this Salvacion-wide manhunt?

UPDATE:
11) Rebecca and Gonzalo were caught by Franco and his team. Franco held the two to tell the truth about Isabelle's whereabouts. Rebecca spilled it out by telling Franco that he won't be able to reach Isabelle because the ship going to Manila has already left. But since Franco was the governor of Salvacion, he made the ship delayed for awhile. He asked one of this followers to put some bombs inside the ship and blast it off to its wreckage. Meanwhile, Isabelle was worried about her parents while she handled Natalia's tantrums.

12) Natalia finally got out of the ship while having a tantrum. As she went down the ship, Franco was climbing up and found Isabelle and Natalia. Franco grabbed Natalia while Isabelle begged for her. Franco asked Isabelle to give Natalia to her. Franco was hesitant but instead let Isabelle choose between her going back to the ship or her parents lives. Isabelle chose the latter, but thought of Andrea who was left inside the ship with the Severinos. Isabelle went back inside with her parents in a struggle to win Natalia with Franco. Franco won and let Isabelle get inside the ship.

13) Isabelle was worried about Natalia's future to Franco. She has a hint why did Franco let them go easily along with Samuel and the Severinos. Finally, a blast in the ship occurred. There was shipwrecked. The people inside the ship hurried out to the open sea to save their own lives. Many got hurt including Isabelle's parents and the Severinos. Meanwhile, Andrea was accidentally given by Elena to a couple of strangers that were inside a boat for the rescue. The last scene was Gabriel seeing left alone in the open sea with a life vest crying hopelessly.

Whew! Now that's a recap for the whole "Ikaw Lamang" Book 1! However, we are not yet finished to this twists and turns of events to the love story of Samuel and Isabelle. On Monday, August 11, a new beginning will be unfolded. If we are going to base on the "Ikaw Lamang" Book 2 Cast teaser trailer, we already know that Samuel and Isabelle are alive, but what we didn't know if their love story has continued or not, or if Franco won this time. And what will happen to Natalia, Andrea, and Gabriel?

Continue to watch "Ikaw Lamang" on ABS-CBN as its story comes to their Book 2 which will start with the above-mentioned unfortunate events of stories.
