“REVIEW: Chito Roño’s ‘Signal Rock’ gives a delicious and bittersweet slice of life in Samar”

 

Signal Rock was named after a giant rock formation on the island of Samar where the only cellphone signal can be found and where locals would have to climb high up just to be able to communicate with the outside world. This is also the place where Intoy (Christian Bables) goes every morning to receive a call from his sister who is all the way in Finland.

The movie starts off uneventfully, with Intoy doing nothing unexpected of his provincial life, going to church, spending time with family, playing basketball, emceeing small town dances, and being an all-around errand boy for the community. Christian Bables makes a significant mark on the big screen with his role, which guarantees will not just make you forget how effectively he played Paolo Ballesteros’s gay best friend in Die Beautiful, but will also see him in an even more masculine light. 

Trouble in Intoy’s family starts when his sister becomes a victim of domestic abuse and gets into a custody battle with her foreigner husband and Intoy must find a way to produce documents that prove she has assets on the island. This sets off a series of events that not only shows how much Filipinos value family, but also how a community, whether related or not by blood, can consider themselves as one big extended family.

Those who are used to watching Chito Roño’s films like The Ghost Bride, Feng Shui, and The Healing will not be disappointed as Signal Rock promises to be just as engaging, and evenly-paced, even if its set on a small remote island that still practices nightly lights out throughout the entire town. But to write Signal Rock off as just a family drama would be a misnomer as the film also manages to showcase to the audience the director’s home province of Samar. From the majestic rock formations, to the quiet lakes, and easygoing island life, Signal Rock shows viewers the beauty in that kind of simplicity. 

“Mariel De Leon, mas confident na umarte ngayon”

 

Hanggang ngayon ay nakatira pa rin si Mariel de Leon sa poder ng kanyang parents na sina Christopher de Leon at Sandy Andolong kahit 25 years old na siya.

Aniya, “I am still clinging with them. Yeah, dahil siguro sa Filipino values. I think I’ll just move out when I want to get married na which is matagal pa, super tagal pa.”

Wala ring boyfriend ang former beauty queen pagkatapos nilang maghiwalay ng former boyfriend bago siya sumabak noon sa Miss International pageant sa Japan.

“Dating-dating lang. For now, I want to concentrate on myself. Parang medyo selfish, pero in a good way, na parang… and I’m still young,” sey pa niya.

Masaya ring ibinalita ng FHM’s first digital cover girl na tatlong projects ang ginagawa niya ngayon. Kasama si Mariel sa cast ng Barbara Reimagined (remake ng Patayin sa Sindak si Barbara) na isang digital movie ng ABS-CBN, sa Latay (nina Allen Dizon and Lovi Poe) at sa isang sexy movie ng Regal Films.

Mas confident na ba siyang umarte ngayon kesa noong naging leading lady siya ni Coco Martin sa Panday?

“I’m more comfortable now than before, especially because of the fact na I’m more comfortable with myself and I’m working na din with my Tagalog para mas madali sa mga syuting and sa mga lines. Before kasi I was more scared, now I’m having fun.”

Eh, bakit ka scared?

“I guess, the comparison din with my parents kasi, the pressure. And also coming Binibini, parang they always expect the beauty queens to go into acting or to hosting, so parang I want to do it differently. I want to really give my all into the art of acting and not disappoint my parents,” tugon ng dalaga.

Bukod sa pag-arte, gusto ring i-pursue ni Mariel ang pagiging classical singer.

“I do want to pursue singing pero acting muna ang uunahin ko. For now I’m having singing lessons muna once a week para ma-develop pa yung voice ko, para more powerful,” sambit niya.

Aware ba siya na hindi masyadong “in” sa recording industry ang mga classical singers?

“I think, parang yon yung misconception ng mga tao na yung opera is for mga class A lang or elite, pero I don’t think it’s that way because I think music is for everyone.

“So I think what I can do is classical crossover, parang i-mix yung pop at classical,” katwiran pa ng dalaga.

Samantala, masaya siya sa feedback na natatanggap sa pagpo-pose niya sa isang digital magazine.

“I’m very happy kasi I see the posts of my friends and family and it’s nice to see them proud of how I’ve become to think I was a different story before, now that I am kind of flourishing in a way,” huling pahayag ng former beauty queen.

“Why won’t Inigo Pascual talk about K-pop anymore?”

 

If there's a man in showbiz who proudly admits that he is a K-Pop fan without thinking whether or not people might judge him, that would be Inigo Pascual. 

As a matter of fact, Inigo has consistently voiced out his love and support for groups such as GOT7, SEVENTEEN, and EXO. But sadly, he suddenly stopped posting about his love for K-Pop on social media thanks to "toxic fans" who keep on attacking him and other artists who happen to be fans as well. 

After fans bombarded him with speculations as to why he decided to quit sharing his thoughts about K-Pop, the 20-year-old Kapamilya artist finally broke his silence via Twitter. 

"I was a big fan of K-Pop before. In fact, I still am. I used to post a lot about my favorite songs, groups, and artists. The reason why I stopped posting and sharing my interest in it was because of toxic fans that keep attacking artists that are fans as well," he said.

Meanwhile, his good friend Darren Espanto seconded his thoughts by giving a shout-out to BTS member Rap Monster.

"Basta…Rapmon. Yun lang hahahahaha balakayojan," Darren replied to Inigo's tweet.

Last year, Inigo's cover of BIGBANG member Taeyang's "Eyes, Nose, Lips" together with Darren Espanto, and Yohan Hwang became a trending topic online.
