Dwarfina: Television’s small giant


…are talking about


The series is literally and figuratively the smallest giant on primetime television today. Executives of the Kapuso network have the reason to smile again as the fantasy series’ pilot episode debuted at number one based on the data provided by AGB Neilsen. The Heart Evangelista and Dennis Trillo starrer garnered 15.4 percent dwarfing the seemingly undisputed Imortal and Noah. Kapamilya network has all the reason to be bothered, its rival networks is banking on fantasy series and that’s a form of escape since majority of the population feel poor according to latest SWS survey.

Alfonzo Marrtinez

It takes an unpopular name to double  slap those who believe that they are the last word in the Philippine Cinema. Liezl and Albert Martinez’s son created a load buzz this week after posting sweeping tweets over his Twitter account. Alfonzo bashed Wenn Deramas’  Ang Tanging Ina. Part of his tweet states (and we quote):Apparently to the magical MMFF grading system, the pinnacle of Philippine cinema is a brainless, rehashed, slapstick movie that would be the laughing stock of any filmfest outside the Phil!”The young man has a point, indeed, and it echoed the sentiments of those who were disappointed after watching the blockbuster film.But this doesn’t mean that we tolerate Alfonzo for using curse words to raise his points, and doesn’t mean as well that Rosario is a great film.
Star Records

Six out of the ten top-selling albums of 2010 came from this ABS-CBN subsidiary. Based on the sales data of a  leading music retail outlet, with 54 stores nationwide, Star Records dominated the list of top-selling albums last year.  Notable albums from Star Records were Jovit’s Baldivino ’s Faithfully, Piolo Pascual ’s Decades 1, and Willie Revillame ’s Ikaw Na Nga. This just reaffirms that supporters and fans of ABS-CBN talents have stronger purchasing power. No doubt about it.

…are not talking about

Sharon Cuneta

What happened to her in a concert at the big dome last Tuesday was not a laughing matter, but she was able to make the audience think that she’s fine. While having a duet with Billy Crawford, the rounded Megastar fell onstage and was rushed to the hospital after the three-hour performance. This should be taken seriously and Sharon should also reassess her capabilities as a performer. Let KC do the things she used to do 20 years ago, or probably, it’s a wake up call that she really needs lose weight.

Mart Escudero

You might recognize him as a GMA-7 talent playing bit roles in different series and programs. This is in spite of being StarStruck season 4 winner (Aljur Abrenica, Jewel Mische and Kris Bernal were his batch mates). Recently, the 20-year-old actor was seen with the executives of TV 5 and it furthered the speculation that he is eyeing a possible transfer. If he decides to jumped ship again, this will be the second instance that he cuts his ties with a station – from Kapamilya, to Kapuso, and now to Kapatid. Does it tell us something that he is only made to do supporting acts since he’s not being offered with lead roles?

Raymond Gutierrez

The best thing for a man to do when the female member of the family is having a conflict with another woman, is to just observe . A normal man would just keep mum and let the issue to naturally subside. The rift between Heart Evangelista and former manager Annabelle Rama is already a past issue and there’s no point of creating another noise out of it. Only if Raymond could stay a gentleman like Richard and let Ruffa and his mother react on this situation, people will a little less harsh on him.
