Boxing Day Hunk

IMG_3894 IMG_3899Today is Boxing Day, a legal holiday in some parts of the world. It is the tradition of giving seasonal gifts in Christmas boxes to workers, employees and social inferiors, which boxes are opened on the day after Christmas. Boxing Day has also been associated with sports in early village celebrations such that it has been traditionally believed that is a holiday for boxing. And then again I’m just trying to find means to post these hot photos of Janvier Daily, who figured most recently in an interesting video.


While we’re on the Cinemalaya 2013 film festival, here’s another movie worth watching – Porno. The description in the festival website reads –  “Porno” is a powerful story about individuals linked by pornography. Three souls, one explicit illusion.  To find the ultimate joy in their empty lives. A safe haven, where passion and love mean humanity, ecstasy means enlightenment; and the soul is the ultimate arbiter of the truth. Yeah, I didn’t understand either but watch the movie just the same because  Janvier Daily [image] has a big surprise for you guys.  


Cinemalaya’s NETPAC World Competition top grosser Bayaw starring Paolo and Janvier is extended for another week at the theaters in Robinsons Galleria, Gotesco Grand Central, Gotesco Ortigas and Remar. And then again, the independently-produced movie [by Climax Films] directed by Sagwan‘s Monti Parungao made a killing at the tills considering its limited release. Too, Paolo and Janvier and Andrew Miguel fans can revel and rejoice as another movie’s in the offing for these guys. Possibly, bolder and better.

Do Me Daily

It’s the weekend and Bayaw is still showing at the Robinsons theaters nationwide, plus the moviehouses in Ruben, Remar, Gotesco Grand, Gotesco Ortigas, Isetann and New Cinema Cebu. Of course, Janvier Daily [in photo] is in the movie and he gets to show some skin plus plus. Bayaw, which initially got an X rating from the MTRCB, “is a deep look into the unique and complex relationship of two brothers-in-law that borders between family ties, brotherhood, camaraderie and love.” It was the top grosser in the Cinemalaya NETPAC World Cinema competition.

Bayaw Gets X

The Paolo-Janvier starrer with lots of dick shots recently got an X rating from the Movie and Television Review and Classification Board [MTRCB]. Bayaw was scheduled for its commercial run starting on 2 September 2009 at the Robinsons Galleria and Ermita theaters but it seems this will be delayed for a bit as the producer, Climax Films tries to file for a reconsideration of the harsh order of rating by the MTRCB. The producer wants the movie to be shown in its integral version as was done in the Cinemalaya festival a month ago at the Cultural Center of the Philippines [CCP]. Hopefully, the MTRCB will reconsider and give the go-signal for the uncut version in its commercial showing.

Bayaw Tops

Here’s a pr from the makers of Bayaw – “Due to the box office success of BAYAW during its premiere at the CCP last July 21, Cinemalaya has decided to show the movie once again to cater to the overwhelming public demand. BAYAW will have its second run at CCP’s Tanghalang Huseng Batute Theater on 26 July 2009, Sunday at 3:30pm. Tickets are available at the CCP and through Ticketworld.
BAYAW has been officially recognized as the Top Grosser for the NETPAC Competition category and will be the only film in the category to be allowed a second running. The Cinemalaya NETPAC World Cinema competition is comprised of a distinct group of films by independent producers that were shortlisted by the screening board of CCP to premiere during the festival. This is a separate category and competition from the films that were granted funding by the Cinemalaya organization. A winner for this category will be determined by a distinct group of international jurors and announced during the Cinemalaya Awards Night.
The success of BAYAW confirms the magic touch of its director, Monti Parungao, who is also the same person behind the success of gay flick, SAGWAN. Direk Monti describes BAYAW as a movie that combines action, mystery, suspense with the gay genre. The film topbills new indie movie king and GAWAD Urian nominee, Paolo Rivero together with comebacking actor, Janvier Daily.
BAYAW is a story about the bond between two brother-in-laws. Nilo Vergara (Paolo Rivero) is a policeman who lives an ordinary life with his wife, Pia Jacinto (played by Kaye Alipio, Philippine Survivor castaway). Their lives take an unfortunate turn when Nilo loses his badge due to a frame up and is forced to depend on Pia for his livelihood. Pia becomes burdened and resentful of the responsibility of taking care of her husband and her drifter young brother, Rhennan (Janvier Daily). One day, Rhennan witnesses Nilo accidentally killing Pia after a heated argument. Both in-laws decide to run from the law and become fugitives. As the story progresses, the real events behind the death of Pia is slowly revealed through flashbacks and shifts in character point-of-views.
BAYAW also introduces new indie actor, Andrew Miguel, star of the controversial straight-to-video release, FRESHMAN. Andrew plays the character of Erick Cana, the mysterious figure who saves the two brother-in-laws in the most unlikely times. His devious and sometimes, mischievous intentions complicate the lives of the two lead actors but his connection to Nilo and Rhennan is finally revealed at the end of the movie. Visually edgy and groundbreaking, BAYAW is ultimately a deep look into the unique and complex relationship of two brother-in-laws that borders between family ties, brotherhood, camaraderie and love.
Theater release of BAYAW is set on 2 September 2009 in Robinsons Galleria Indiesine. Movie trailer is posted on .”
