The controversial Marco Morales
[Loophole] has finally been approved for commercial showing by the MTRCB starting on 28 January 2009 [Wednesday].
It will be screened in in selected theaters : Robinsons Galeria, Robinsons Ermita, Gotesco Grand Central Caloocan, Gotesco Ortigas, Isetan Recto Cinerama, ABC-Theater Guadalupe, Remar Theater Cubao, Robinsons Iloilo and Cebu Vistarama in Colon. Plus you can now see Marco in person because there’s a “Meet and Greet” Marco and Allen Dizon at the Robinson’s Galeria Cinema Lobby on January 31 [Saturday] at 5pm
Summer’s just a few months away and it’s doubly exciting because of the onrush of fresh, new and distinct faces in the season’s bikini fleshfest. One of them guys who is sure to be in the bikini open competitions this year is Alexis Alvarez
, a 22-year-old native of Imus, Cavite. Alexis, who is 5’11”-tall, has the potential because of his striking and unusual looks, well-defined body and considerable height. Definitely, he is someone to keep an eye on this coming summer.
At 28 years old, Ederson dela Torre
is still at it. He’s still joining local bikini contests, easily fitting in – primping and posing in a tiny bikini against much younger contestants. This 5’9″-tall native of Bataan province was a runner-up at the 2007 Beach Bodies Bikini Open in Bataan. He is a college grad from the Philippine Women’s University in Manila. With the onset of summer, expect to see more of Ederson in the bikini pageants for guys.
Twenty-five-year-old model and call center agent Nino Ibarrola
a.k.a. Nino Rico
has been in the modeling business for quite some time now. He was one of the Cosmopolitan [Phils] magazine’s 69 hot bachelors. Although he didn’t reach his peak and popularity in runway and commercial fashion assignments, this 6’2″-tall native of Lucena City is now making waves as an entertainer and model in the island city of Macau. He has been there for a couple of years already and apparently, the pay’s good and the job’s groovy.
Nino Ibarrola can be seen in these photos [bottom photo, rightmost] sent in by a reader who has been to Macau. This was taken in DD2 Disco where the boys merely dance in synchronized hip-hop moves. Contrary to reports that they dance without their shirts and pants on, Nino and the boys [Jude Marco is somewhere there with the newsboy cap] are fully clothed in DD2. Incidentally, DD2 Disco and its counterpart DD3 at Fisherman’s Wharf are not strip clubs and the clubs attract a mixed crowd of expats and locals.
Award-winning hunk actor and businessman Allen Dizon
did not disrobe in the controversial film Butas
[which is showing finally, starting on 28 January 2009
in Robinson Galleria, Robinson Ermita, Remar Theater, Isetan Cinerama, Gotesco Grand Central, Gotesco Ortigas, Robinson Iloilo, ABC Guadalupe and Cebu Vistarama]. In Butas,
he got good reviews for his subdued performance as the weakling husband of his unfaithful wife. His next film under his own company ATD Entertainment Productions is Marino
with Marco Alcaraz
, Victor Basa
, Rico Barrera
, and Mike Tan
. Written and directed by Ateneo graduate and Cinemalaya
alum Paul Sta Ana, Marino
will be the first indie movie with sequences shot in Thailand. It’s all about the lives of Filipino seamen and their families. Outside showbiz, Allen Dizon is happily married with three kids. He has a car-trading business and a Kenny Rogers Roasters franchise in SM San Fernando, Pampanga.
I’m loving John Carlo “JC” Tiuseco
for his quiet charm. Plus he has that man-boy appeal in a killer body. In case you were living under a rock last year, JC happens to be the winner of Survivor – Philippines
, a popular reality tv show where contestants are usually shipped off to the wilderness. JC was noticed in that show. As grand winner, he has received offers for tv projects. He declared though, in previous interviews, that he won’t go sexy for now and instead he wants to do drama.
Okay here we go: There’s a new movie, with a gay love scene that is wonderfully lovely, called Walang Hanggang Paalam,
and Jake Roxas
and Rico Barrera
are the lovers [shown above]. Of course, this serious drama movie is not entirely on the subject of the same-sex persuasion, but it would be a thrill [and delight] to see Jake and Rico make love. Walang Hanggang Paalam
, directed by Paolo Vilalluna and Ellen Ramos , will premiere showing on 8 Feb 2009
at 8 p.m
. at Robinson’s Galleria
, while commercial showing is on 11-18 February 2009
at Indiesine of Robinson’s Galleria
Because he is one of the more popular persons in this site, I’m bringing back the Cedric Javier
sounding board. Controversial and scandalous, this former member of the Viva Hotmen has surprisingly stayed on the gay consciousness long after his group and fellow members have disappeared into the pink horizon. Of course, the reason would have to be the lurid and lusty tales about Cedric Javier
and his exploits
. So, what’s your tale about this guy?
Twenty-two-year-old Ivan Maxwell
has been a regular contestant of bikini shows during summer. Too, if he looks familiar, he was one of the lead actors in the direct-to-video Erotika: M2M 2 [The Art of Striptease and Sensual Dancing]
. This native of Nueva Ecija has also appeared in the contests
organized by the bar formerly known as Lips, and he figured
well in said underwear competitions. Ivan Maxwell
, who is 5’10”-tall, has previously done indie flicks and hopes to break through mainstream showbiz someday.
Now that I have your attention, here’s a bulletin: The indie movie The Thank You Girls
is going to be shown starting today until 27 January 2009
at the Robinsons Indiesine
in Ortigas Center. No, the photos above – taken at the little bar formerly known as Lips – have nothing to do with the movie. Directed by Charliebebs Gohetia, it is a rampageous tale of “five dysfunctional gay beauty pageant veterans who decide to travel north to Cagayan de Oro City,to conquer the grandest competition of beauty, personality and brains in the whole province.” As city dwellers, they believe that gays in the province will never stand a chance against them. This should be fun! For more info, their website is at www.thethankyougirls.com
