What’s ‘Family History’ really all about?One man actor-writer-director-producer Bitoy explains why promo materials don’t give much awayIf you’ve still to catch comedy genius Michael V’s big screen directorial debut, “Family History,” then you’re still probably wondering what the movie’s all about. A few days before this co-production between Michael V’s own Mic Test Entertainment and comebacking outfit GMA Films, Showbuzz sat down with its all-around brainchild relaying a common feedback. People can’t seem to figure out what the movie’s all about, whether from Family History’s poster or trailers. “It’s actually all intentional,” admitted the comedian who’s also famously called Bitoy. “Kasi I’m an avid moviegoer and I get really frustrated when I see trailers that give away the story of a movie. Minsan pa nga, I hear comments like ‘Mas maganda pa ‘yung … [Read more...] about What’s ‘Family History’ really all about?
Bagneres-de-Bigorre, France (AP) — In 116 years of racing at the Tour de France, riders have done all sorts of bizarre things, from jumping on trains to fighting with fans at mountain stops. Rarely have they just vanished in the middle of a stage like Rohan Dennis did on Thursday during the first Pyrenean stage. For a couple of hours on an otherwise uneventful day in the mountains, nobody was able to say where the time trial world champion had gone. His Bahrain-Merida team even sent an alarming message out on social networks, saying all it cared about was “the welfare” of Dennis after Tour organizers announced he had pulled out of the race. The Australian ultimately resurfaced at the finish line in Bagneres-de-Bigorre, where British rider Simon Yates, the reigning Spanish Vuelta champion, posted his first stage win after a long breakaway that did not shuffle the overall standings. Dennis was spotted near the Bahrain-Merida team bus after the stage, but did not make … [Read more...] about Dennis quits Tour in bizarre way, Yates wins in Pyrenees
New York (AP) — Yankees manager Aaron Boone got fired up at a rookie umpire in a profane rant, and New York awoke from a sleepy start to rally past the Tampa Bay Rays 6-2 in a doubleheader opener Thursday. After Domingo Germán (12-2) gave up solo homers to his first two batters, Gio Urshela hit a tying home run in the second off Yonny Chirinos (9-5), and Gary Sánchez smashed a go-ahead 110 mph single off the glove of third baseman Yandy Díaz during a three-run fifth. Díaz had helped the Yankees come alive when he dropped Didi Gregorius’ leadoff popup in the second for a two-base error. Boone fumed after rookie umpire Brennan Miller called Brett Gardner out on strikes in the second inning. Miller, umpiring behind the plate for the fifth time in the major leagues, had punched out Aaron Judge in the first. Gardner batted in the second after Urshela’s tying, two-run homer and struck out on a 1-2 pitch. Gardner returned to the dugout, slammed his bat … [Read more...] about Boone dubs Yanks ‘savages’ during rant in 6-2 win over Rays
If you spent your childhood years in Great Britain it’s more than likely that you came across a series of children’s books by Enid Blyton which related the summer holiday adventures of four children and a dog. I refer of course to the Famous Five although this name wasn’t used until 1951 after nine books in the series had already been published. Enid Blyton evidently intended to write only six or eight books but their huge commercial success encouraged her to write twenty-one full-length Famous Five novels. She could apparently knock out a book within a week. It often showed, for there was sometimes a good deal of repetition. The child characters were aged about twelve or thirteen but they never seemed to grow up very much. They were frozen in childhood forever. The books are still selling today at a staggering rate of two million copies a year. They’ve been translated into ninety languages. Yes, including Thai since you asked. Out of curiosity, I bought one of … [Read more...] about Give me five
