pH Care Naturals PapayapHCare Papaya_50mLThere are a lot of factors that can influence a woman’s confidence when it comes to donning that swimsuit, including puson problems and cleavage consciousness. But one other common insecurity many women have is dark skin in and around the feminine area, and this is something they can feel self-conscious about even in the comfort and privacy of their own rooms and bathrooms.

Green Inferno finally gets the green light


After more than a year of waiting, horror movie fans will finally get to see perhaps the most disturbing, and controversial films of the year—THE GREEN INFERNO.

Ahead of its US release, Solar Pictures unleashes the Green Inferno in local cinemas nationwide beginning September 23, 2015.

Directed by Eli Roth, the horror mastermind behind such groundbreaking films as Cabin Fever and the blockbuster Hostel franchise, Green Inferno is a terrifying, twisted and blood-soaked take on the a digital-age phenomenon known as “slacktivism.”

The Green Inferno tells the story of what happens when “slacktivism”—the well-meaning social-media response to global catastrophes—turns deadly deep in a South American rainforest.

green inferno HI RES

When a group of college students take their humanitarian protest to the Amazon jungle, they are taken prisoner by the indigenous tribe they came to save. Trapped in a remote tribal village, these naïve, technology- dependent students suffer unspeakable acts as the victims of chilling and soul- destroying rituals reserved for only the most threatening intruders.

In early 2012 Eli Roth was working on a script about a group of college students who try to solve the world’s problems by using online videos to publicly embarrass anyone they see as doing wrong. Before he finished writing it, an organization called Invisible Children made the video “KONY 2012,” which urged viewers to help take down Ugandan warlord Joseph Kony.

Fueled by a worldwide social-media frenzy, the video was viewed more than 100 million times. Soon, however, the campaign came under intense criticism for oversimplifying—and in some cases misrepresenting—a complex situation, and the organization’s founder, Jason Russell, suffered a very public breakdown.

Roth was amazed that these real-life events so closely mirrored the central premise of The Green Inferno.

“Everyone in the world was tweeting about something they had learned from a YouTube video, and almost shaming other people into re-tweeting it, as if you were uncaring about Ugandan child soldiers if you didn’t,” he recalls. In the end, the KONY 2012 campaign did almost nothing to solve the problems it highlighted. Yes, it raised awareness, but just re-tweeting links to YouTube videos isn’t actually going to stop warlords.”

For Roth, the controversy surrounding KONY 2012 validated The Green Inferno’s core conceit—the idea that “slacktivism” is often just a way for social media users to feel like they are doing something about horrific events that are completely beyond their control. “It came from a good place, wanting to help others in a far corner of the world,” says Roth. “But ultimately it was more about people feeling better about themselves.”

Although the film offers a pointed commentary on this uniquely 21st-century trend, Roth’s primary goal is more visceral: to share with audiences his love for blood- curdling movie mayhem. “Horror movies were my passion growing up, and my favorite thing was being scared and watching scary, gory movies with my friends,” he says. “I love to terrify people. As things get worse in this world, and people feel a loss of control over things, they need an outlet, a place they are allowed to be really scared. Where better than in a horror movie?”



“Taklub” Director Brillante Mendoza-what were his inspirations for doing the film


I truly appreciate the opportunity to interview  2009 Best Director. Director Brillante Ma. Mendoza, his the first and only Filipino to win the most coveted Best Director award at the Cannes Film Festival – His 2012 film  Thy Womb competed for the Golden Lion at the  69th Venice International Film Festival.  And now His film Taklub has been selected to be screened in the Un Certain Regard section at the  2015 Cannes Film Festival.  


Director Brillante were asked some questions during the interview on what were his inspiration for doing the film and if he is open of doing teleserye or another project. Direk always trusts his instincts and make sure that there is always consistency between facts, storytelling and his techniques. How he did this movie? he was asked if he wanted to make a movie about the tragedy of Typhoon Yolanda, the Department of Environment asked him to work on a documentary which is his style and by doing this film is his tribute to the victims and survivors.


Inspirational quote that I learned from Direk Brillante Mendoza, 

” Its not about the form, its about the content “

What is his next project? his next film will be a plea against climate change, this project is his way of awaking every ones eye to become aware of Global problem before its too late.

Taklub, directed by Brillante Mendoza in this film Nora Aunor to lead the film, a story of haiyan survivors , struggles and hope. The film revolves more with emotional devastation than with the physical aftermath. Direk’s style of the film is more of documentary and concentrates on its subject, the film is intimate and has its dramatic attack on the viewers. the finale of the film will leave you saddened yet humbled. 

Taklub is a story of three major characters – Bebeth, Larry and Erwin, whose lives intertwine after super typhoon Haiyan left the city of Tacloban in a horrendous state.  They search for the dead while trying desperately to keep their sanity intact, and to protect what little faith may have.

Bebeth (Nora Aunor) searches for the remains of her three children in the hopes that any identified records could match a DNA test from those buried at the mass grave. Larry (Julio Diaz) lost his wife and consoles himself by joining a group of devout Catholics carrying a life-size crucifix around the city. Erwin (Aaron Rivera) and his elder brother try to hide the truth of their parents’ death from their little sister.

As if grieving from the loss of their loved ones is not enough, a series of events, both man-made and natural, continue to test the endurance of the characters along with the rest of the people, waiting for a time to wipe those slow repugnant tears.

The film has received positive comments from social media and good reviews from the film critics. The MTRCB rated it as PG and released by the DEPARTMENT OF ENVIRONMENT AND NATURAL RESOURCES (DENR) Thru Solar Pictures.



The Media Screening  and the said Interview was held at the FILMFEST CAFE AND RESTAURANT is owned by the world-renowned Filipino Director, Brillante Mendoza together with his business partner, Chef Allan Garcia.


In the age when cafes have sprouted almost everywhere, each offering a different experience from the other, the choice of the theme really plays an important role in making the establishment standout from the rest.
