Review: Thy Womb

The Philippine premiere of Thy Womb in Davao City last November 23 celebrated the arrival of the internationally acclaimed film which will also compete in the local Metro Manila Film Festival as the latest entry. Last June, Thy Womb was rejected by the Metro Manila Development Authority (MMDA) in order to give way to films like Sisteraka and Si Agimat, Si Enteng at Ako.
When another entry pulled out from the competition last October, the MMDA offered the vacant slot to Thy Womb while it was still in the midst of positive reception among international film festivals. The Filipino audience should be excited about the attendance of Thy Womb in this year’s Metro Manila Film Festival.
Brilliante Mendoza’s latest chilling feature imparts the essential coherence for the complexities of the politics and sentiments in the plucky narrative. With an inspired and promising story, Mendoza’s profound liberation appears to be restrained at first but the overall vigor eventually resonates something powerful and considerably introspective.
In the realms of dark blue waters and handsome atolls, a childless couple rummages around for a bride who could marry the husband and provide them a child. With Tawi-Tawi which was effervescently captured on camera and its striking culture as backdrop, Thy Womb effortlessly generates an intimately prevailing joie de vivre.

But the movie is indeed a romantic work of art. It tells us about love and how unconditional it will always be no matter how cliche that may sound. It represents the female role in that kind of society-in a society that cares so much about tradition. It presented us a woman who was ready to represent some facet of their culture. And that alone is admirable.

Brilliante Mendoza handles Thy Womb with so much humility that it works especially with the kind of nature set in the movie. It was, after all, a movie about a woman who was dictated by culture to remain meek and loyal to the husband. And Brilliante Mendoza does that. He was loyal to the material and the final product tells us that. 

Nora Aunor sincerely obligates herself to the emotional weight as she portrays the ardent Shalehah almost flawlessly. This is her movie, after all. She gets all the screentime and she gives justice to that privilege. It was fun to watch Nora Aunor play this certain role but you kind of forget that you were actually watching the superstar on the screen. She wasn’t Nora. She was that woman that the movie wanted you to love.

Bembol Rocco’s efforts to supply more dimensions to a relatively weak character are not to be dismissed. Furthermore, Aunor and Rocco share an unparalleled onscreen chemistry that helps foster the overall poignant gravity. Admittedly, it would have been more emotional if everyone spoke the Sama dialect. Either way, it’s still a matter of how the actors were able to connect themselves to their characters.

Unstinted of symbolisms and unadulterated emotions, Thy Womb is easily one of this year’s most affecting films as it transcends from the small vicinities of Tawi-Tawi to an engaging shrewdness and brilliance.

Glamorosa (Pinoy Screenplay)


Mukhang naging malumanay
ang pagdalaw ko sa aking blog at sa blog ng may blog ng ibang blogger, ngunit hindi po iyon nangangahulugang
tumigil na tayo sa pagsusulat at pagbabasa, sa katunayan, pansamantala kong
iniwan ang pagsusulat at pagbabsa sa blog upang mabigyan ng mahaba-habang
pagkakataon ang pagsusulat at pagbabasa, hmmm… gulo no?


May mga ibang bagay kasi
akong inaaral ngayopn tungkol sa pagsusulat, alam niyo naman po, hindi po tayo
magaling salarangang ito, kaya kailangan kong pagtuunan ng pansin ang ginagawa kong pagses-self
studies dito, sa katunayan isa sa mga inaaral ko ngayon ay ang pagsulat ng
script o screenplay.


Wala lang… makasulat lang at
masabihang magaling… 


Isa po ito sa mga naisulat
ko noon na ginawan ko nang script, alam ko pong maraming mali sa ginawa ko, pero
pilit ko paring pinoste sa aking blog para may pang update lang ako, kasi kahit
papaano ayaw ko itong mabulok at anayin.


Meron po akong free software na nadownload sa internet na ginagamit sa pagsulat ng pinoy script o screen play, ang kaso nga lang kapag nililipat ko na dito sa blog ko e nasisira na ang format nito. ehehehehe.

Sana po e maintindihan niyo
na hindi po ako propesyonal at walang pormal na na ensayo at pagsasanay sa larangang ito, wala din akong
maalalang araw nagkaroon kami ng ganitong subject noong nag-aaral pa ako, kung meron
man marahil absent ako.


Nga pala naalala ko gumawa nga pala ako ng Term Paper tungkol sa Drama noong 4th years High school ako.

Kayo na po sana ang bahalang
umintindi sa kwento ng ginawa ko, medyo magulo pero kung pagtyatyagaan niyong basahin, e maiitindihan namanniyo siguro, sana huwag niyo rin po akong husgahan bagkos e turuan na
lang.

INT. MANSION. ARAW.

Sa loob ng isang
magarang na tahanan ng isang ekslusibong Subdivision, mauupo sa sofa si Diana
(19), maganda, maputi, halatang may breeding, daig pa ang isang prinsesa sa pagiging
glamorosa.

Bubuksan niya ang tv,
di niya magugustuhan ang palabas,makalipas ang sampung sigundo, ililipat niya
ang channel ng flat screen TV sa harap niya.

Maiinis dahil wala
namang magandang palabas, kukuha ng isang stick ng isang kilalang blue seal
cigarette na nakapatong sa lamesitang yari sa steel brush na nasa harap niya.

Hahanapin niya ang
lighter, lilinga-linga siya, iisipin kung 
saan niya huling
nailagay ang lighter, haharap ulit siya sa 
TV, makikita niyang
nakapatong ang lighter sa TV Stand,tatayo siya para kunin ito, sisindihan niya
ang sigarilyo saka niya ipapatong ulit ang lighter sa ibabaw ng TV Stand.
Maglalakad papunta sa
pintuan ng terrace ng bahay, pagmamasdan niya ang paligid gamit ang isang
napakatalim na tingin, gugumuhit sa kanyang pisngi ang isang mapangutyang ngiti,
maaalala niya ang mga panahong nagdaan.

DIANA (V.O.)

Hindi ko na hahayaang babuyin
niyo

ulit ang aking pagkatao.

Hihithitin niya ang
sigarilyong hawak, saka ibubuga ang usok 
sa napakasakastikong
pamamaraan, babalik siya sa sofa, mauupo, ipapatong sa ash tray ang sigarilyo
na kanyang hawak, kukunin niya ang remote control ng tv na nasa tabi ng ash
tray, ililipat ulit ang channel.
Sasandal sa sofa,
ididikwatro ang paa, ililipat ulit ang channel, maiinis, bubuntong hininga saka
iiling sabay pikit 
ng mata, pagkadilat
ipapatong ang remote control sa ibabaw ng lamesitang nasa harap.
Tatayo at tutungo sa
kusina.

CUT TO.

INT.KETCHEN.CONT

Kukuha siya ng pitcher
sa fridge na may lamang orange juice, 
kukuha ng isang baso
saka magsalin, ilalapag ang pitcher malapit sa lababo.
Dala ang isang baso ng
orange juice, babalik ulit siya sa living-room.

CUT TO.

INT.LIVING ROOM.CONT

Hihigop muna siya ng
orange juice saka niya ipapatong ang baso sa lamesitang nasa harap saka siya
mauupo ulit sa sofa, Manonood ng palabas.

Ilang sandali pa,
tutunog ang kanyang cellphone.

Dadamputin niya ang
kanyang cellphone na nakapatong sa lamesitang nasa harap niya saka niya ito
sasagutin.

DIANA.

(Sarkastiko)

Yes?

ANGELINA (O.S.)

(Excited)

Diana! Ikaw ba yan?

DIANA.

ANGELINA (O.S.)

Si Angelina ito, kamusta
kana.

DIANA.

Angelina? who’s that?

ANGELINA (O.S.)

Angelina Perez, yung kababata
mo,

Matitigilan siya,
hindi siya agad makakasagot.

ANGELINA (O.S.)

Uy! Diana andyan ka pa ba?

DIANA.

Wala akong kilalang Angelina.

(matigas niyang sagot sa kausap)

Huwag ka nang tumawag ulit.

ANGELINA (O.S.)

Ahh!!! Diana ano ka ba? si
Angelina

ito, yung kababata mo.

Ibababa niya ang
kanyang cellphone, hindi na hihintayin ang susunod pang sasabihin ng kanyang
kausap.

Ipapatong niya ang
kanyang cellphone sa lamesitang nasa harap saka niya kukunin ang kanyang
sigarilyo, tatayo siya saka tutungo sa Terrace.

CUT TO.

EXT.TERRACE.CONT.

Mauupo siya sa upuan
na nakalagay sa labas ng terrace,ipapatong niya sa ibabaw ng lamesitang nasa
harap niya ang kanyang mga paa, isasandal ng bahagyan ang ulo, saka hihithitin
ang sigarilyo.


DIANA (V.O.)

(Kalmado)

Papaano kaya niya nalaman ang

cellphone number ko? Ano ang

kailangan niya? bakit siya
tumawag?

Hihithit ulit ng sigarilyo.

DIANA (V.O.)

Ah! basta, hindi na
importante

yon, basta ang alam ko,
kailangan

kong maging matigas,
kailangan kong

maging pusong bato, dahil isa
akong

glamorosa.

Hihithit ulit ng
sigarilyo saka niya ito papatayin sa ash 
tray na nakalagay sa
ibabaw ng lamesitang nasa kanyang 
harapan.
Tatayo, pupunta sa
dulo ng terrace, pagmasdan ang paligid.

DIANA (V.O.)

Hinding-hindi ko na hahayaang

hamakin niyo ulit ang
pagkatao ko,

hinding-hindi ko na ulit
hahayaang

tratuhin niyo ako na parang
aso.

     (Matalim ang mga tingin)

DIANA (V.O.)

(Titingin sa kanan bahagi

ng hardin)

Inalipusta niyo kaming magkakapatid,

pinandirihan.

DIANA (V.O.)

(Pipikit saka bubuntung hininga,

bubuksan ang mga mata sabay haharap)

Tinuring na parang hayop,pinagtawanan,

inalipusta, ngayon hinding-hindi ko na

kayo hahayaang gawin yun ulit sa akin, sa amin,lalabanan
ko na kayo, dahil isa na akong glamorosa.

Lilingon, babalik ulit
siya sa loob ng living room.

INT.LIVING ROOM.CONT

Maupo siya sa sofa
saka manonood ulit ng palabas, pero halatang hindi nakatuon sa ppinapanood ang
kanyang isipan.

DIANA (V.O.)

Alam kong darating ang araw na

titingalain niyo ako, at heto,

unti-unti ng nangyayari.

DIANA (V.O.)

(Ngingiti)

Unti-unti na akong umaangat,nakatira

na ako sa bahay na bato,hindi tulad

niyong, hindi parin nakakaalis sa putikan.

(Bubuntong hininga)

Dahil wala rin namang
mapanood na maganda, isasara na niya ang telebisyon gamit ang remote control
nito, uubusin and orange juice, tatayo at tutungo sa bathroom.


    CUT TO.

INT.BATHROOM.CONT

Pagmamasdan niya ng
mabuti ang loob bathroom.

DIANA (V.O.)

Napakaganda.

DIANA

Alam kaya nilang ganito ang
banyong

ginagamit ko dito.

DIANA (V.O.)

Marahil Hindi

(Sarkastikong ngiti)

Alam kong hindi.

Matutukso siyang
maligo.

Isasara niya ang
pinto, magtanggal ng damit, bubuksan ang

faucet ng shower.
lulusub sa tubig saka maliligo.

Habang mag-isang
nagpapakasasa sa marangya buhay sa loob ng

bathroom, biglang may
kakatok sa pinto ng banyo.

MRS. CHUA (O.S.)

Diana, naliligo ka na naman
ba,

sino ang tumawag kanina?
parang

narinig kong tumunog ang
cellphone?

DIANA

(Magugulat)

Ho! Mrs. Chua ay este Ma’am!!

Ahh… ahh… wala pu ma’am,
di ko

MRS. CHUA (O.S.)

Ah! ano daw kailangan?

DIANA

(Magpupunas at halatang nagmamadali

para makalabas na ng banyo)

Wala po ma’am, nagkamali lang
ng tawag.

MRS. CHUA (O.S.)

Review: Breaking Dawn Part 2

Twihards are going to celebrate. Non-Twihards are probably going to celebrate as well. Or not.

For the last 5 years, tweens everywhere decided that the ultimate fantasy is necrophilia. That may be an overstatement but somehow; a generation of teenagers rapidly vegetated ever since the Twilight frenzy was considered to be prominent in today’s popular culture.
Bill Condon’s Twilight stint returns with the last instalment of the film series, Breaking Dawn Part 2. The previous movie wasn’t all that bad. It just unfalteringly personified the weird vampire romance fairy-tale which failed to fully flesh out the real meat or some sort of reasoning for the whole artsy hullabaloo.

Enjoying the ride of utter eccentricity and irrevocable soapiness might help though if you think that the last chapter of the saga is a hopeless case.
Apparently, this may be the most likable of the series since it obviously poses itself as the consolation instalment in the 5-part movie saga, for both Twihards and Non-Twihards. For one thing, Breaking Dawn Part 2 is not about a deadpan teenage girl choosing between a sparkling vampire who claims to be a monster and a werewolf on steroids, which dragged the first few films into utter literary catastrophe.  
Breaking Dawn Part 2 is all about vampire Bella now and how she and the rest of the Twilight fanbase finally got what they wanted—immortality and a baby with Edward. The only problem was that Bella’s half-human half-vampire daughter was considered as a work of a crime for the Volturi, the elite group of red-eye bloodsuckers which polices the whole vampire world for around a thousand years already.
Don’t be surprised of sloppy editing, off pacing and any type of ridiculousness. It’s all part of the Thanksgiving party. Everybody in the film seems to be excited that it’s finally putting to an end. Screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg does everyone a favor with some cunningly laughable and agreeably entertaining twists and scenes that make fun of the whole Twilight frenzy. Expect a strip-teasing Taylor Lautner, a band of red-eyed oddballs, and a creepy CGI baby.
As always, the emotional gravity is imposed, most probably because of poor acting and the lack of creative screenwriting seminars for Rosenberg (or, frankly, writing workshops for Stephenie Meyer). Billy Burke as Charlie is truly the only one worth rooting for, considering his limited screentime.
But this last chapter also proves that, maybe, just maybe, Twilight may have been actually good. Meyer’s version of the vampire mythology is not exactly groundbreaking but it should’ve been utilized more thoroughly instead of all the overplayed impositions.
Like it or not, you end up cheering for neck-breaking vampire and werewolf combats as this is obviously one of the most bearable parts that Eclipse originated.
Fans will savor it up to the very last music video. The rest of the world is thankful that the advertised epic finale finally ended—impressively or not.

MPC Statement: Support Six Point-Criteria for the Transition Commission

Nov. 16, 2012 – As a grassroots network of indigenous, Bangsamoro and Christian settlers from the conflict-affected areas in Mindanao, the Mindanao Peoples Caucus believes that the establishment of the Transition Commission (TC) is a critical step in ensuring that the Framework Agreement on the Bangsamoro will be fully implemented to the letter and spirit.  As a primary mechanism for the transition period, it is highly important that a clear and transparent set of criteria should be shown as a guide in appointing the men and women who will compose the Transition Commission.

Judge Estacio erases bigotry against veiled Muslim women in Zamboanga City

Philippine court orders university to enroll Muslim students using hijab, niqab
   

ZAMBOANGA CITY — The Regional Trial Court Branch 14 has ordered the Universidad de Zamboanga on Wednesday to admit female Muslim students to enroll in the school which bans students from wearing hijab and niqab.
After they questioned the ban on the wearing of veils at the university, Judge Reynerio Estacio issued a writ of preliminary injunction and ordered the university to allow the students to re-enroll.
The Universidad de Zamboanga banned the use of veil among its Muslim students, saying it is the school’s security protocol. But the students said the ban violated their rights.
Warina Sushil Jukuy, the Secretary-General of the Hijaab-Niqaab Advocacy Network, praised the court order and said Estacio “sets example that Philippine justice can grind swiftly when propelled by astuteness, PROBITY and sincerity.”
“Judge Estacio erases bigotry against veiled Muslim women in Zamboanga City. Judge Estacio re-bonds the once broken veils, shattered dreams of Mutanaqqibat (niqaab wearing students in Universidad de Zamboanga). He brings hope through right to education for our niqaabis who stopped for one whole semester pending resolution of the case,” she said.
There was no immediate statement from the Universidad de Zamboanga.
Aside from the said university, Pilar College in Zamboanga City also banned the wearing of hijab and niqab among its Muslim students. Various Muslim and human rights groups protested the school’s policy.-Mindanao Examiner (November 14, 2012)

ZAMBOANGA CITY (Mindanao Examiner / Nov. 14, 2012) – A local court has ordered the Universidad de Zamboanga on Wednesday to allow female Muslim students to enroll in the school which bans students from wearing hijab and niqab.

Judge Reynerio Estacio, of the Regional Trial Court Branch 14, ordered the school to admit the Muslims students after they questioned the ban on the wearing of veils at the Universidad de Zamboanga.

Estacio issued a writ of preliminary injunction and ordered the university to allow the students to re-enroll.

The Universidad de Zamboanga banned the use of veil among its Muslim students, saying it is the school’s security protocol. But the students said the ban violated their rights.

Jukuy said the court order has lightened up their faith in the justice system and that Estacio’s ruling “sends a message across that peace and pro-activity is a way, and never violence.”
