MOVIE REVIEW: ONE MOMENT IN TIME
Written by : Mario Bautista


WE were so impressed by Manny Palo’s debut film last year, the Cinemalaya indie entry “Sta. Nina,” so watching him bungle his first mainstream movie in Star Cinema’s “A Moment in Time” is painful for us.

This starts as the usual rom-com, with a “cute-meet” scene at the film’s start. Patrick (Coco Martin) sees Jillian (Julia Montes) by chance inside a commuter train and immediately gets infatuated with her. He searches for her and, since he’s a painter (who also works as a waiter and delivery boy for a chicken resto), he paints her portrait on the walls of public places (without him being accosted by anyone for vandalism.) At this point, Coco is shown to be a jolly, free spirited young man, doing goofy things, forever smiling like an idiot and shouting “Baby, Baby” each time he sees Julia in public. He energetically chases her car several blocks down the road and even pretends to have been run over just to get her attention. Like a stalker, he goes to Julia’s school and serenades her in the street while other students surround them.

All these efforts are meant to be “kilig” scenes, just like what John Lloyd Cruz does in his past films, but, sorry, Coco wasn’t really able to carry them well the way JL did with aplomb. He just looks silly and ludicrous. He’s a poor boy, she’s a rich girl, but with all his relentless wooing, she falls for him and they share some good moments together, until Coco learns that Julia is the driver of the hit and run car that killed his mom (Zsa Zsa Padilla) years before.

It’s understandable for Coco to get mad at Julia, who didn’t know her victim was killed as her very wealthy parents (Gabby Concepcion and Cherie Gil) took care of everything without informing her about what really happened. But he suddenly softens up and they’re sweet again, and then for no reason at all, he suddenly changes his mood, gets all sullen and becomes very mean to Julia who even humbles herself asking for forgiveness.  The jolly, bubbly Coco makes a 360 degree turn in his personality and has become so “galit sa mundo.”

From being a rom-com, the movie turns into serious drama. Spurned and humiliated, Julia, a violinist, goes to Amsterdam to study music. Then Coco changes his mind again and suddenly chooses to search for her in Amsterdam, doing menial jobs until he chances upon Julia again. By this time, we have lost all our interest in the film and any remaining sympathy that we have for its stupid characters.

It’s Julia’s chance to play hard to get this time, particularly when it’s revealed that she’s engaged to be married to Joseph Marco (in such a thankless role with three brief sequences). Just as when we’re saying Coco just got what he surely deserves for his boorishness, Julia changes her mind again suddenly (there are so many sudden things in this movie) and they’re reconciled for the forced and obligatory happy ending while making “pasyal-pasyal” around Amsterdam and Paris (thanks to their promo tours there for TFC.) The end.

After their successful team up in “Walang Hanggan”, Coco and Julia certainly deserve a better first outing on the big screen than this crummy movie that humiliates them both. Coco’s character seems to be bipolar or have a split personality and he’s not that well equipped to supply the elements that his role lacks. Even more pathetic is Julia for her equally badly written role that leaves her nothing to work on. Although Coco is considered the hottest actor on TV now because of the success of “Walang Hanggan” and “Juan de la Cruz,” we’re afraid he has yet to come up with a real hit like JLC on the big screen. In contrast, though, JLC’s films are all blockbusters but we all know what happened to his last soap, “Beautiful Affair,” that was quickly terminated due to lackluster ratings. Well, we guess you can’t just have it all.

Coco Martin and Gretchen Barretto in a 'May-December Love Affair' Movie Concept



Gretchen Barretto and Coco Martin might be working together in a movie sometime soon. In her interview with ABS-CBN showbiz oriented talk show The Buzz on Sunday, Gretchen said that she's open to work with Coco in a movie project.

Coco, according to Gretchen is trying to conceptualize a script about  a May-December love affair where they can again work together. It can be recalled that Gretchen had a guesting in Coco Martin's action drama series Juan Dela Cruz recently.

"Hindi ko pa naiisip iyon pero I’m flattered para maisip ni Coco iyon gawin with me," she said.

"Lahat ng mga proyekto na dumating sa akin, puro magaganda. Basta na lang nahulog sa akin. So I feel like if we are meant to do a movie with Coco, I’d gladly do it," she added.

Aside from Coco, Gretchen Barretto said that she wanted to work with different actors, more especially those who she haven't work with yet. Gretchen, took her guesting in Toda Max as an example where she will work with most of the cast for the first time.

"Para sa akin, gusto ko makatrabaho lahat ng puwede ko pang hindi nakakatrabaho, mga hindi ko pa nakakasama," she said. "On Tuesday, I’m taping for ‘Toda Max’ and for the first time I’ll be working with Angel Locsin. I’m really looking forward to it, with Pokwang and Vhong Navarro. Gusto ko makilala lahat," she revealed.

There have been no confirmations yet on Gretchen's follow up project after Princess and I but there are reports that she might do the cancelled Alta which ABS-CBN is now resurrecting.

Jack Enrile says he couldn't afford Coco Martin's 35-million-peso TF
Roldan Castro


Hindi sinasadyang mabanggit ni Cagayan Representative at senatorial candidate Jack Enrile na 35 million pesos daw ang presyo ni Coco Martin kapag kinuha bilang celebrity endorser ng isang pulitiko.

At dahil wala raw siyang ganung kalaking budget, hindi raw ito nag-attempt na kunin ang Kapamilya actor.

Ang bulalas niya sa ilang piling press na kasama niyang nag-lunch sa Passion restaurant ng Resorts World.

Pakiusap ni Jack, sana raw ay huwag masyadong mahalan ng mga artista ang kanilang presyo kapag kinukuhang endorser ng pulitiko.

“Something needs to be done as far as the cause of running for office. Masyadong mahal! Hindi abot-kaya ng mga taong naghahangad magsilbi. Mahirap po,” ang deklara niya.

Pero aminado siyang malaki ang naitutulong ng mga artista sa kampanya kaya nga kino-consider naman daw talaga niyang kumuha.

“Kami talaga, gusto talaga namin kasi we believe, importante para sa aming mga kandidato na mapalapit kami sa mga tao.

“Kaya nga parati kaming sumasayaw, parating kumakanta si Presidente Erap [Joseph Estrada], pati si Vice-President [Jejomar] Binay, nagcha-chacha.

“Para sa amin, that is a way to show to the public na tao kami.”

Aniya, likas daw ang pagkahilig ng mga Pinoy sa entertainment.

“Masayahin tayong kultura, e. Mahilig tayo sa mga nagpapasaya, so kami naman, we have to reach out to our base.

“And our base really is the people who like these kind of stuff.

“So, kami, pag pinapasayaw kami ng ‘Gangnam,’ sumasayaw.

“Yung bago ngayon na ‘Harlem Shake’? Hindi ko pa alam yun," natatawa niyang sabi.

 

 

COCO’S SIDE. Samantala,isang malapit sa actor ang nagsabi na libre talaga ang pag-i-endorso nito sa napiling kandidato.

Aniya, "Hindi naging isyu ang pera para i-endorso ni Coco si Sonny Angara.

Joel Torre: Coco Martin deserves all the success

ABS-CBNnews.com
Posted at 04/05/2013 3:04 PM | Updated as of 04/05/2013 3:27 PM

MANILA, Philippines - Award-winning actor Joel Torre believes that actor Coco Martin deserves all his showbiz success, the latest being the top-rating ABS-CBN series "Juan dela Cruz."

Torre, who is also part of "Juan dela Cruz," praised Martin, saying the young actor has been "really working hard."

"Oh, yeah [he deserves all the success]. He is really working hard--and with the help of the studio (ABS-CBN). He is the biggest sa television [at the moment], so alam niya na kailangan, he also has to maintain [that]," Torre told ABS-CBNnews.com on Thursday.

Torre said he always reminds Martin to take care of his health, given his very busy schedule.

"Sabi ko you have to learn how to pace yourself at the same time. Learn how to do power naps, that's very important," he said.

Torre believes that Martin will go a long way mainly because of his acting chops, which he got from doing indie films.

"Well, he's got big promise. Like me, he started out with indie films... now, he is the biggest name on television. He really works hard, like now, we tape almost every day, nakakapagod din," he said.

"Sabi ko, daanin mo lagi sa galing because that will give you longevity sa business. Longevity is very, very important," he ended.

Martin's last television project was "Walang Hanggan," which was dubbed a "phenomenal" series because of its consistently high ratings. The soap also starred Julia Montes, Richard Gomez and Dawn Zulueta.

In "Juan dela Cruz," Martin has actress Erich Gonzales as his leading lady.

Coco, hari pa rin sa TV ratings!

Mga bayani ng ABS-CBN, umusbong


Consistent na naghahari sa TV ratings ang superhero drama series ng ABS-CBN na Juan dela Cruz, na pinagbibida­han ng paborito ko at Teleserye Prince na si Coco Martin.

Patunay dito ang pinakahuling datos mula sa Kantar Media para sa buwan ng Marso kung saan nanguna sa listahan ng overall TV programs sa Pilipinas ang Juan dela Cruz, taglay ang average national TV rating na 35.7%.

Samantala, tiyak na mapapakapit ang masusugid na manonood ng Juan dela Cruz gabi-gabi ngayong pinapahanap na ni Haring Samuel (Albert Martinez) ang Tagabantay.

Ano nga ba ang gagawin ng Hari kapag natuklasan niya na ang taong tumutugis sa kanilang lahi ay anak ng babaeng pinakamamahal niya?


Sa pagdating ng aswang na si Omar (Jason Abalos), paano pa nga ba maililihim ni Juan (Coco) ang kanyang tunay na pagkatao? Huwag palampasin ang kuwento ng paboritong superhero ng mga Pilipino, Juan dela Cruz, gabi-gabi pagkatapos ng TV Patrol sa Primetime Bida ng ABS-CBN.

Coco hindi binibigo ang mga bossing ng Kapamilya

Hanggang ngayon hindi pa binibigo ni Coco Martin ang expectation sa kanya ng mga bossing niya sa ABS-CBN. Sa kabila ng malakas na laban na ibinibigay ng kalaban nitong programa mula sa kalabang network, nag-No. 1 pa rin ang Juan dela Cruz para sa buwan ng Marso. Patunay dito ang pinakahuling datos mula sa Kantar Media na taglay ang average national TV rating na 35.7%.

MANILA -- Award-winning actor Coco Martin shrugged off a supposed rivalry between him and fellow Kapamilya star Enchong Dee.

In an interview with "The Buzz" after the ABS-CBN Trade Launch event last Tuesday, Martin said people should stop speculating because all is well between them.

"Comeptition? Never naman magkakaroon ng comepetition. Actually kaibigan ko si Enchong dahil nakatrabaho ko na siya sa iba't ibang shows at iba't ibang pelikula," he said.

The supposed row between the two men started when Martin was tagged as one of the reasons Dee and actress Julia Montes had a falling out late last year.

In a separate interview, Dee said he also has no problems with Martin, who also expressed interest in the young actress and was even her escort at her debut party.

“Sobra kaming okay ni Coco. Doing well ang ‘Juan dela Cruz.’ Walang [kompetisyon], Coco Martin na iyon eh. Wala naming problema sa amin,” Dee said.

This was also echoed by Montes in an interview with "KrisTV" last week.

"Okay naman kami [ni Enchong] kasi friends kami ngayon at walang problema," Montes said.

Dee and Montes are set to work together again in the upcoming series "Muling Buksan Ang Puso," which will also feature Enrique Gil, Amalia Fuentes, Susan Roces, Dante Rivero, Dominic Ochoa, Daniel Fernando, Malou Crisologo and Pooh.

Martin, on the other hand, continues to headline the top-rating primetime series "Juan dela Cruz.
