Alessandra de Rossi-Empoy Marquez no more?


The hit tandem of these two brilliant artists came unexpectedly. With humble beginnings, Alessandra de Rossi and Empoy Marquez ended up raking over 300 million pesos in the box office for their Kita-Kita film.

“Kung sino man yung dumating, okay lang. In God’s will, darating naman tayo dun.”

“Hindi, kasi nakakasawa na siya. Ayoko na. Iba naman. *laughs*”

Loveteam or not, let’s just support the two actors

4 Lessons “Halik sa Hangin” movie can teach you about life and love

4 Lessons “Halik sa Hangin” movie can teach you about life and love


Love is the greatest thing one can ever have here in the place we live in and even in the life after death, perhaps. Love has its way of making you laugh, cry, and all emotions in between. Not every love feeling pours into someone gets the same profit as how it’s given.

In the romantic mysterious movie, “Halik Sa Hangin”  merely asks people how much sacrifice can someone do in the name of love.

This may sound cliche but this is really happening. We may know and get experience from stories like this that aren’t successful because it’s forbidden.

Intriguing and out of the line, this film carries bravery and passion to offer something that is different, not the usual romantic-comedy but a union of 2 elusive genres.

This movie does not just want you to enter characters’ lives but make it possible for you to evaluate how far you can go and what lessons it can impart to you- lessons that most of us are aware, yet somehow neglected, because of too much love.

1. Love is not a business. It’s not a transaction. It’s not an exchange or something you get for doing something it’s not a trade. It’s a gift!

halik Gege

Common! This is so true. You cannot have it all. If you passionately love someone it doesn’t guarantee you to get that kind of love back. You cannot control someone’s life and more so, his/her feelings for you. And Alvin (portrayed by JC De Vera) is an epitome of this particular guy type.

He knows where he stands. He’s not the kind of guy who would insist what he wanted. He believes in giving respect to Mia (starred by Julia Montes). Even the latter can just give love of friendship, Alvin still stays. Oh man, it’s not a trade.

2. “Home is where you are loved the most and act the worst.” – Marjorie Pay Hinckley


Your relationship with family members maybe in thru ups and downs. You shrugged off parents’ ground. For you they have broken the world and not wanting you to keep a single smile. But in every misunderstanding lies an ever-present concern forever. Who you can count on if all things are against your odd, would that be your family?

3. “Sinful and forbidden pleasures are like poisoned bread; they may satisfy appetite for the moment, but there is death in them at the end.” -Tryon Edwards


Alluring romance strikes between Gio (Gerald Anderson) and Mia as their enticing love for each other has imagined to be there’s no other way out.

It is not the perfect love in every boomy story, a mystery partakes step closer to the big revalation.

Mia takes delight to go after the line. She scatters her ego trip and go after the man of his dreams in trade of her life.

In the climax of the story, Gio did the same sacrifice for Mia. Just like what Olaf (perky snowman in “Frozen” movie) said, true love is putting someone else before yourself.

It’s not greed, fun-flicked stereotpye, but an explicit and genuine feeling for someone.

4. “When connections are real, they simply never die. They can be buried, or ignored or walked away from, but never broken.” -Victoria Erickson

Special people that have touched your life stay in memory no matter what. There’s no ifs and buts, they do embark a personal carve in your heart and the memories you have shared with them are irreplacable, infinite, and impeccable.

A tragic incident of her father’s death forces her to leave Manila and stay with her mother (Ina Raymundo). She still longing for his father’s affection. Memories flashed in through her mind which cannot help her to forget but just to remember repeatedly.

This is a romantic mystery-thriller movie directed by Emmanuel Guindo Palo and produced by Star Cinema.

The film is now on its second week and available in more than 100 theaters nationwide.

Halik Sa Hangin: A Twisted Love Story

Halik Sa Hangin: A Twisted Love Story


Love is the greatest emotion that a man could feel; it is also an emotion that can destroy a person. Will the love she discovers save her or break her?

Star Cinema’s another movie offer for this year is a movie about romance depicting suspense and a bit paranormal. Halik Sa Hangin is a movie topbilled Julia Montes, Gerald Anderson and JC De Vera and opens nationwide last January 28, 2015.

Halik sa Hangin, by comparison, is an intricate mess. It plods deliberately like a leaden love story, before rushing into a finale that feels jarringly out of place. It never let go of the romance even amidst the twists and turns that took the narrative down the route of thrills and tension. Halik sa Hangin grounds its romance on a lot of talk and blabber. The film is drowning in dialogue, which covers almost all of the bases of the film’s blossoming romance. This reliance on spoken expositions to propel the love story leaves very little to the imagination, rendering the romance tepid and unbelievable.

The story evolves in the characters of Mia played by Julia Montes, Gio played by Gerald Anderson and JC De Vera as Alvin. Scenes are beautifully shot alongside the pine trees, luscious greens, and the dark, misty hills of Baguio City.


Story wise, the movie conveys the message of love, forgiveness, letting go, and a toss of paranormal. There seems to be a bit of uncertainty as the reveal comes into play as there sets a moment of confusion on how the story would proceed, however the story picks itself up and sets itself for a grand finale. The ending however, seems to be a compromise of sorts as it falls again into formula.

Technically speaking, there were some issues on editing and technical aspects of the movie. Cinematographer Moises Zee exerts a lot of effort in making sure that the endless conversations are always back dropped with beautiful fog-draped vistas. However, there were also obvious editing and continuity issues in Halik Sa Hangin, Mia’s hair, her mode of transportation, the seemingly shoe box props in the park, the meet the family scene, and the scooter left in the haunted house were all lacking consistency. Though the plot is getting better but the sound effects used in some scenes were not really much needed in the scenes.

The lighting effects were good enough to indicate the ambiance of the film. The cinematography was good enough for the story but it lacks of imaginations being portrayed. The character of Gio played by Gerald Anderson was lacking of suspense. It only gives notion of coldness in the scenes. Everything is wasted on the dull romance and ineffective horror.

To say the least, the movie is a good feeling of blossoming romance, of how the romanticized idea of love can conquer all. Passionate love and a twist of having obsessions in a natural love story but the effects depicting horror twist in Gio’s character is really stereotype. Alvin’s character is cold and subtle. While Mia’s character is compromising. Plot points and twists are prematurely telegraphed, not only because the narrative is all too common already, but also because the characters are visually designed and portrayed by their respective actors and actresses to logically fall a certain anticipated path.

Overall, the movie is a must to watch.

The movie implies the good and bad side of love and how love should sacrifice for your love ones. “Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.” That’s how Halik Sa Hangin describes what love is.

Halik Sa Hangin is still showing nationwide under Star Cinema.

Every viewer get hooked up with their favorite character in the series because each role are relatable. Some fans, Legalistas, as they are called are for Team Nicole or Team Monica. Most of the housewives, who experienced the same situation or fear that they may experience the same are expected to be at Team Monica’s. While others, though they are not in reality, mistresses, go for Team Nicole because they can feel how hard it is to fall for someone you are not meant to love. Some also empathize with Adrian as the husband who committed a mistake but is willing to correct his wrongdoings.

Directed by Rory B. Quintos and Dado C. Lumibao, “The Legal Wife” is set to air its final episode this Friday, June 13.
