Empowerment, Hypersensitivity and Being Insensitive

I had an idea earlier, when I was reading and looking at reactions by the “Netizens” on last Holy Week‘s infamous characters that riled the Catholic sensibilities of the general Filipino population, the Scarborough Standoff , and Tsunami warnings in Indonesia. The girl who posed for a photowhile on the cross got nearly lynched, in a manner of speaking, just because she was too clueless to think of her actions. There was also a couple of ladies from the Netherlands (Netherworld?) who had fun posing and participating in what they view as weird and adventurous: the Senakulo. They were Atheists, or so they claim and we cannot fault them for their beliefs. I mean they spent their money travelling halfway across the globe just to see what the fuss was all about and I guess they got what they came for. Couldn’t find a good link so you just have to search for yourself. So, reading posts on my Tweetdeck , I was puzzled. Here we are damning this girl who had her photo taken on the cross (and those two Atheist-foreigners) about how they were “disrespectful”, that they were “sinning against God”, and they they should “burn in hell” for their actions, and got me thinking – Annabelle Rama, a somewhat colorful character in Showbiz have been “taking the name of the Lord in vain” over and over by including the name og God as her witness in most of her Twitter rantings, and while I was really getting a cramp in my stomach, because I haven’t made  coffee yet, here comes one of those absurd tweets form a dummy account for Marian Rivera. The mind played it’s game so I posted my own opinion of these two.

And soon enough there were some replies from people I know. And the followers. It was fast! fast and furious! Like those protesters against VFA were fast. I mean those guys were there, rattling their cans making a ruckus about the VFA, yet they were absent the whole time NoKor was grandstanding with their rocket launch, and the Chinese vessels were face to face with our PN.

THAT fast.And then there are these

Pinoy Movies Ek-Ek

How many Shake, Rattle & Roll installments till we die throwing up our last week’s dinner? The first one was good in its own time. The second promised new stuff with SFX. Ther rest dripped down like premature ejaculation, leaving a nasty odor and the usual embarassment. I was hoping when they did Kamakalawa and Once Upon a Time that Pinoy movies can evolve into something better and visually pleasing. Instead all we got are poor copies of the old stuff.

Wil somebody tell me why they let Jinggoy do a movie? Are they out of their minds?

My Monster Mom movie is a futile effort by the self-proclaimed shobiz royalties at begging the moviegoers to contribute to their non-existent fame. What fame? Infamy is not the same, believe you me.

Why are our critically acclaimed films appear suspiciously like skin jobs?

I wish they’d do more Bad Bananas movies. These guys can stuff enough wit and humor into two films by just being themselves.

Where the heck is Raymond Red?

Ryan Agoncillo can hadle himself in any movie and tv assignments. He makes Piolo Pascual and Ding Dong Dantes look fruity. Ooops! They are.

I give you permission to do another Exodus and Panday movies, as long as Bong Revilla does not appear in any of them.

And if Vic should do another Enteng Kabisote movie, please, ditch the cameos and thank-you spots and stick to the story. Okay Ka Fairy ko was ahead of its time. But now, I would choose to watch Ramon Zamora in Pedro Penduko than die of unnatural causes watching the latest Kabisote movie.
