After conquering South America, HANGGANG MAKITA KANG MULI struts in Africa...meanwhile, Pinoy Network Wars go to Thailand?: DESTINY ROSE & PANGAKO SA YO


After making history in 2017 as the highest-rating Asian telenovela to be shown in Peru, the GMA teleserye Hanggang Makita Kang Muli will try its magic this year in Africa. It's now on weekend primetime on KTN, Kenya's top-rating free-to-air TV channel.

Last year, GMA new international releases surprisingly overwhelmed ABS-CBN as the latter only managed to sell a single 2017-produced teleserye for the whole year (Magpahanggang-Wakas). Early 2018 proved that the GMA upsurge  hasn't waned, new GMA teleseryes keep popping in various locations while its rival can't seem to sell its new releases in the international market: Poor Señorita in TV3, Malaysia's largest free-to-air TV, Vietnam had My BFF, Second Chances  in Africa & Ecuador, Destiny Rose in Thailand, etc. It's now February & like last year, Abs-Cbn is still mostly relying on its 2016 & earlier hits to be rerun in various locales (As a consolation, the 2015 Kathniel  teleserye, Pangako Sa Yo has a chance to shine in Thailand).

It's clear the GMA writers are propelling GMA to greater heights in the international arena: innovative plots, not only internationally acceptable Pinoy good looks & sleek production values, are now flying the flag for teleserye abroad. Meanwhile, ABS-CBN is still in GMA mode, still aping the fantaserye genre started by the latter as GMA upped the ante with stories not usually tackled by teleserye (amazingly, a future GMA teleseye is titled The Cure. Getting cutting edge in medical thrillers? )

Meanwhile, it's safe to say the sudden international prominence of the Big 3 young loveteams of ABS-CBN (Kathniel, Lizquen & Jadine) was a fluke. A tsamba which nobody knew how to handle. Yeah, it was probably serendipity that 3 cute Pinoy LT's were created at the same period that they were noticed in various geographical areas in the world, reaping adulations not normally accorded to previous Pinoy or any Asian loveteams. Proving that physically, the beautiful among the Filipinos will be more readily acceptable in more disparate geographical areas of the world than the usual Asian stereotypes.

 But a short look at the history of loveteam making in the Philippines would confirm that cute loveteams coming too far in between was the norm in Philippine, particularly ABS-CBN, loveteam making. The truth is, despite the overabundance of cute youth in Philippine streets, ordinary-looking teen idols were de rigueur in the last 30 years. It doesn't surprise me that my batch never bothered with the so-called Pinoy teen loveteams then (so did the world, obviously), most of my friends  looked far better than the stars and worse, I hate to admit it but I didn't know anybody who wasted his time with Pinoy showbiz. A few bad apples could really spoil the whole basket. The looks of certain Pinoy stars could rebuff a big part of the Philippine population. I remembered the time while channel-surfing when I felt revolted watching a reality show because I found the host "cross-eyed", only to find out years later  when I was already writing this blog that she was actually a big star in that channel. If not for this blog (thereby realizing Pinoy showbiz was bigger than her eyes), I would have lost respect on Pinoy showbiz forever.

Propaganda assumes that mass media can trick the people into  believing or adulating what it dictates. Not a fat chance here in the Philippines. People mostly ignore it when it's tacky. Like we did.

The good thing is that the Big 3 has really proven that unlike the stereotype Asian look, the Pinoy melting-pot look is more acceptable in more geographical areas of the world. And looks matter. This is classically typified by the greater acceptance of the Pinoy teleseryes over the kdramas in all the international areas where they were shown together like in South America (Peru), Southeast Asia( Indonesia), Africa, Central Asia (Kazakhstan), etc.

Perhaps in 2050 when the Philippines is predicted by HSBC to be the 16th richest country in the world, some Filipino strategists would decide to elevate the stature of Filipinos (much like how the South Koreans are doing now in promoting themselves out of the shadows of their giant neighbors, the Chinese & the Japanese). It should occur to them, however, that we don't have to mix delusion into the effort just like how the South Koreans have done it. The Koreans are not only aping the Japanese Jpop for its Kpop or the Chinese for their  F4, but in a ludicrous effort to gain anchor into the Spanish-speaking world, their propagandists went hilariously overboard & had the weird temerity to hilariously tag themselves as "Latinos of Asia", a tag given to the Filipinos by the Latinos themselves. To extremely hilarious results, as expected. As we have documented in the blog,  they were perennially clinging for years at the very bottom of the Peruvian rating charts while their propaganda was hilariously proclaiming they were popular. Nobody was fooled. More like nauseated.

No need to go the South Korean comedy route, Pinoys now know we can count on our looks. Perhaps by 2050, we'll have learned how to handle internationally other Big 3's. After all, we have the supply.

    4. I agree sa isang comment sa preceding post na kaya sinabotage ng mga Koreans ang Jadine nang ipalabas ang "Diary ng Panget" noong 2015 kasi nung mag-hit ito sa mga pirate propaganda site ng mga Koreans, nakita ng tao na mas Latino palang Asian ang mga Pinoy. Nag-sabotage na lang ang mga Koreans kasi napahiya na sila, mapagkunwari kasi

    2. Whether they admit it or not, may problem sa Abscbn. Obvious ang insecurity nila as proved by their obsession sa GMA. Kung di inaagaw ang mga artists ng GMA, ginagaya ang mga genre kaya hayan nagpapantaserye pa rin sila habang iniwanan na sila ng karibal. Napag-iiwanan na tuloy sila

    5. Ang bobo naman yung nagsabi na inaagaw ng ABS CBN ang mga artists ng GMA..Bakit wala bang mga utak ang mga artista ng gma dahil ganun-ganun na lang sila kung magpapaagaw? Kung ayaw ng artista lumipat mananatili sila sa kamuning station hindi sila pinipilit. Tanga lang! May choice sila kung saan sila magbloom...kung feeling nila na hindi man lang lumevel up ang career nila dahilan yun kaya sila nagdedesisyong lumipat. Kahit pa siguro gaano kalaki ang offer kung maganda ang nangyari sa career nila sa GMA wala sigurong lipatang mangyari. And FYI, strategy yan ng mga talents kung lumipat man sila..either gusto nilang sumikat o gusto nilang magkaroon ng trabaho.

      At porket nagfantaserye ang ABS CBN ang GMA na agad ang ginagaya nila? Hindi ba pwedeng sa mga hollywood series muna. Ang lakas mo makabobo ano po? hahahahaha

    6. And speaking of insecurity... sino ba ang laging naninira ng mga artista ng Kapamilya network? Diba ang GMA?....Sino ba ang laging may hanash sa mga serye ng ABS CBN diba ang mga writer ng GMA..kesho ginagaya daw sila? Hindi pa nga nagstart ang serye inaangkin na...eh sila naman pala yung likas na manggagaya...kaya nga nagkaissue yung Alyas Robinhood ang cheap rip-off ng Arrow. At ang nakakatawa, napagiwanan na daw ng Karibal? Saan banda?
      Baka puro hype lang yan. hahahahahaha

    7. Di naman porke gustong lumipat ng taga-GMA, tatanggapin na ng Abs dapat. Tingnan mo, kung sinu-sino na lang ang tinanggap, nagsilipatan tuloy yong mas may K (mas mukhang artista at mas may talent) gaya ni Jason Abalos, etc.
      Tingnan mo napunta sa Abs- Enzo Pineda, Aljur, yong babaeng de los Reyes, etc. Para mong pinagpalit ang hamon sa asin

    8. Yong strategy ng Abs na drain yong kabila, nag-boomerang in point of talent kasi mas solid ang line-up ng GMA ngayon, may itsura at talent ,nawala ang mga kangkong...and pair that up with good stories & writers, it is coming up with really good teleseryes na sure ipipick up sa labas, lalong iiwan ang Abs na nagre-rely na lang sa mga luma

    9. 5:49, ang barometer mo kung mare-renew ba ang franchise ng Abs ay si Karen. Pag nagiging biased masyado na si Karen, ibig sabihin delikado ang renewal ng franchise ng Abs. Nakakatuwang i-monitor

    10. Sana huwag nyo dalhin ang Kapamilya versus Kapuso War nyo sa mga website ng mga foreign fans or forum ng mga foreign tv networks at doon nyo liitin at ibash ang kabilang panig na tv network. Huwag sana kayo ganyan dahil hindi magandang publicity at hindi maganda sa marketing at promotion ng ating content sa ibang lahi. I hope we learn to be united and act as one when promoting our PH content sa mga ibang lahi, be that content belongs to GMA or ABS. Parepareho silang gawang Filipino kaya support natin silang lahat kung nasa international scene tayo. Salamat po.

    13. Pero in terms of programming mas prefer ko ang mga serye ng ABS CBN...Bukod sa magagaling ang mga artista maganda pa ang quality in term of cinematography..unlike sa GMA na pilit yung cheap na CGI im not sure kung gumamit ba sila ng CGI o baka powerpoint lang? Dagdagan pa ng mga bano nilang unknown starlet na kung walang nametag hindi mo makilala kung sino. No wonder na bawat starlet na lumipat from GMA to ABS CBN parang napakalaking opportunity na para sa kanila kasi hindi lang along kamuning station ang sakop ng ABS CBN eh pati TFC though may GMA pinoy tv naman ang kabila pero im not sure kung buhay pa.. Wala nga rin sigurong nagsubscribes..not sure tho..But seriously kawawa talaga ang mga starlet ng GMA yung malalaos na lang na hindi man lang nakatikim ng kasikatan..lalo na pag may kapamilya artist na lumipat sa gma, matatabunan lalo.. sad reality..

    14. As stated ni 3:36, mas solid ang line up ng GMA ngayon kasi nawala ang mga di gaano artistahin kaya sa totoo lang gandang-ganda ako sa line up ng GMA ngayon...ang gaganda pati ng mga stories so we should expect that like last year, more GMA teleseryes will be bought abroad

      Delete
    15. May napansin ako. Parang nagising na ang GMA sa production values. Look at their new teleseryes, ginagastusan na.
      In point of production values, pang-international na ang dalawa. Delikado ang Abs kasi yong production values lang noon ang lamang niya. Lalo siyang tatapakan ng GMA ngayon

    16. Pinapanuod ko yong "Sherlock Jr" ni Ruru, cute yong series...pero napanuod ko sa "Celebrity Videoke" kagabi, pinagupitan pala siya, mas bagay yong dating hairdo niya. Dapat ibalik, mas pang-international ang look niya noon

      Delete
    17. Agree, kasi may pagka-Indiana Jones ang aura ng dating hairdo. Bagay sa clean-cut face niya. Pang-bagets yong hairdo niyang bago, cleancut tapos clean-cut yong face, nagmukha siyang seminarista, nabawasan ang sex appeal

    18. Pang- international look! parang sugurado na kayong mabibili ang "Sherlock Jr" sa labas ah hehehe

    19. Dapat yong mga roles sa level ni Dennis Trillo ang ibigay kay Jason Abalos. Sigurado, better ang dating sa international. Di pinansin si Dennis sa Thailand kasi underwhelming nanan talaga ang dating sa personal. Siya nga ang weak link sa "The One That Got Away" kasi di siya yong tipong pinag-aagawan ng mga pagkaseksi-seksi pa naman

      Delete
    20. Ganun pa rin ang hairdo ni Ruru sa "Sherlock Jr" kagabi, maikli lang. Napanuod ko rin sa "Celebrity Videoke", nag-bangs kasi siya doon kaya nagmukhang ewan.
      Ok pa rin ang "Sherlock Jr", magaling pala umarte

    21. Pati "Kambal, Karibal" pinapanuod ko na. Di ko gusto yong ibang young stars na isinisingit para i-build up sa "La Luna Sangre". Ang ganda ni Kathryn at pogi ni Dj pero bakit kailangan singitan ng multo, diosme, kawalang-gana

      Delete
    22. Ok naman ang "Kambal,Karibal". Magaganda sila, yong pangit pinatay tapos ginawang multo na sumasasapi kay Kyline. Sa LLS, yong multo buhay,magpapakyut daw, pwe kadiri yuck. Iligtas sina Kath at Dj, baka masapian sila

      Delete
    23. Kahit lumang teleserye ang ipinapalabas sa ibang bansa, okay lang yan. Ang importante ay maipalabas at mapanood nila ang ating teleserye. Parang pang pa apetizer yan o pang pa capture ng mga audince kung sakaling magustuhan nila mga teleserye natin, mag demand pa sila ng marami, at sa susunod hindi na lang siguro basta teleserye ang idedemand kung mga bagong teleserye ang idedemand na ipalabas. At least that's the plan or the idea kaya huwag kayo masyado pansinin na luma ipinapalabas... ang importante ay ipinapalabas nila. Kontento na ako diyan. At kung gusto nila ng magdemand ng mga bagong teleserye, bonus pa yan.

  8. Gusto ko lang ipaalam sa inyo ito kung sa kaling mag change for the better ang mga OST's ng mga Teleseryes at movies ng PH. Alam nyo kasi kumpara sa mga OST's ng mga thai lakorn at ibang bansa, ang gaganda ang mga music ng serye nila (background music, score, theme song OST's, etc.). Ang lawak ng repertoire nila at iba ibang genre at style ng music ang gamit. Perfect fit or perfect match ang theme song sa serye nila. Ang galing ng creativity nila gumawa ng mga original OST's and theme songs para sa mga serye nila. Pero sa atin, hindi sila masyado magaling gumawa ng OST's at kadalasan halos revival o renecycle na kanta lang ang gamit. Pangit rin mga kanta kadalasan at ang genre, style, o ang repertoire ng mga kanta ay very limited lang sa slow, sad, and depressing na ballad song. Sana we pressure our teleserye and movie makers to be more creative in creating new songs and OST's for the teleseryes and movies. We need to level up in that department.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I agree i-pressure natin na mag-level up tayo in that department. But that doesn't mean di tayo up because we are. Though kelangan pa ng push.
      I noticed you're falling into that old-style knack for making generalizations (like di masyadong magaling gumawa ang Pinoy ng OST, etc.) which Pinoys love to resort to when they're bitten by unfounded inferiority complex. UNFOUNDED because first, teleserye is in a higher level than lakorn; second, Pinoys are competent in laying music to their films; third, there's nothing wrong with revivals, even Hollywood blockbusters resort to using revivals; fourth, I've seen a lot of Thai films & believe me, not all songs are perfect fit, etc.
      But having said those, I would say some, not all, Pinoy productions are lazy. We have had good songs come out of movie OST's but it seems some producers don't try hard in this department: there are good local songs there if they only look. Ngayon na lang naman nagkukulang but during the Golden Age of Pinoy films from the 70's to 90's, a lot of great songs came out from films, not to mention the OPM songs from that period. Di naman siguro biglang nabobo ang Pinoy, nandiyan pa rin yan kung halughugin nila

      Delete
    2. Well ang usapan ay ang OST's compara sa ibang bansa tulad ng Thai OST's vs PH OST's. Tama lang ang observation ko tungkol diyan, hindi generalization yan. Isang indicator, tignan mo na lang ang viewers count at popularity ng mga music video nila at music video natin sa youtube, marami rin foreign fans ang mga yan around the world na nagkacomment, u can see the difference. It's not how you lay down the music everybody can do that. What kind of quality you lay down in music is what's important. Sometimes mahirap aminin na marami tayong kakulangan diyan. Kung sasabihin mo na may problema tayo sa inferiority complex, eh di naman inferiority complex ang magsabi ng totoong observation para gumana at ma challenge ang ating attitude para mag effort at gumawa rin tayo ng mas magandang product. Dapat huwag mag defensive at magreact kaagad at sasabihin, we are better than them. Maling ugali yan. We pat our back too much kaya sometimes we don't even bother pressuring the powers that be to innovate and be more creative. Pero just as there is inferiority complex problem, there is also the problem of "we are better than them" problem. Kaya wala nang nagiinovate sometime at na stuck na lang sa more of the same dahil nga sa "we are better than them" attitude Nagrerevival nga ang Hollywood pero kumpara sa pilipinas you can't compare the creativity of hollywood sa pilipinas. Hollywood can afford to do some revival but Philippines' life blood in the industry seems to be more of the same, more of doing revival which as you say is lazy and a damper to creativity and innovation. Why you always looking in the past. If we can't admit may kakulangan tayo sa present status qou para naman mamotivate at machange ang status quo di wala lang mangyayari kung ayaw natin admit meron kakulangan talaga para magimprove. Kaya nga ako nagsusulat ng ganitong topic para ma ipush at ma pressure ang mga tao at mag snowball effect kung sakaling marating ang message sa mga tao that can do something about it. Walang mangyayari kung ang sagut sa message ay, we are better than anyone else no point in improving and innovating kung ganyan lang. That is no good.

    3. Typical Pinoy running around the bush para may masabi lang. Pareho naman ang point natin pero looked from different perspectives. Just some comments:
      First, sometimes you have to look at the past to know what you are capable of especially if malakas ang present inferiority complex.
      Second, The claim that teleserye is better than lakorn is not an idle claim nor is it a product of "we are better than them" attitude problem. It is a fact easily checked: teleserye has a wider world footprint in the broadcasting world because it is sought after & bought (though lakorn has more footprint in the online pirate world because it is free), more recognition from reputable awarding agencies like Int Emmy, etc.
      Third, OST's are not a priority by some local producers. But to those who have OST as priority like Viva, just listen at their soundtracks,for example, it was the OST of "Diary ng Panget" that contributed a big part of its international popularity. So a push to make it a priority is in order.
      Fourth, the big number of hits of mv's from Thailand or even Vietnam is a sign of the health of their music industry, interested ang mga tao nila sa products nila. Our music industry is at a doldrums nowadays with unintetesting acts & just as uninteresting output but this is clearly just a phase, malalagpasan din yan kasi di naman ganyan dati, it's not a reflection of the potential because here the past is important, because if they were capable of incredible output before, why not now? Dapat alam mo pinanggalinganmo para alam mo ang kaya mo. Kung kaya nila noon, bakit hindi ngayon? Just a matter of push kasi kung meron noon, nandyan pa, di lang nabubunot.

    4. Ang Viva at GMA, medyo pursigido silang orig ang OST nila kadalasan. Pero ang talagang mahilig sa mga revival ay ang Abscbn. Sila pa naman ang pinakamalaki ang film outputs. Ewan ko ba, may Starmusic naman sana sila. Kung may stable of writers sila, dapat meron din silang stable of composers.

      Delete
    5. Di nga healthy ang music industry natin. Granted, di tayo marunong mag-hack para ma-jack up ang viewcounts ng mv's...pero talagang nakakadismaya ang mga acts. Pop Royalty daw si Sarah Geronimo pero sino ang kakilala mong bumibili ng record o nanunuod ng shows nya? Ganun din sa iba. Dapat, may program sila para mapayabong ang industry kasi sayang ang voice talents at looks ng Pinoy. Dapat ipauso yong mga manufactured acts na ok ang looks & voice (di lang aasa sa mga kwela sa kanto na mapapansin saglit sa isang reality show) backed up by competent composers & management

    6. Last na na malaking pop icon sa atin si Regine dahil lahat ng classes nahila nya. Recognized din sya sa Asia noong hawak pa siya ni Ronnie Henares. Noong lumipat siya sa Viva, naging mas malapit siya sa masa sa Pilipinas pero nawala naman ang career niya sa Asia. Etong si Sarah, maski ngayong panahon na ini-invade ng mga Asian fans ang mga accounts ng ilang Pinoy young stars, ni wala man lang maligaw na Asian fan. Underwhelmed sila

    7. Pwede si Julie Anne San Jose, mas acceptable internationally ang looks pero bano ang Brazilian director ng mv's nya sa first try nya, mukha syang nag-shrink doon. Mas ready na sya ngayon, mas may confidence na, so dapat i-push pa sya

    14. @3:25 Mahirap ba makaintindi? Ang tinutukoy dito ay ang OST's, theme song, music, etc. ng Serye vs Lakorn or even movies, yan ang kinokumpara, very specific. Ikaw yata ang typical na running around the bush na di makaintindi.

      (First) Looking at the past is not a problem but it becomes an issue if you are living in the past and won't innovate and move forward.

      (Second) Nobody here is making an argument that lakorn is better than teleserye, I can even support that teleserye is indeed better than lakorn. But again, the comparison is very specific. Go back to the top and read again. But sa issue talaga sa OST's etc., mas magaling ang OST's, theme song etc. ng thai kumpara sa teleserye natin. Hindi yan inferiority complex kundi valid observations. Kailangan natin mag improve sa departmentong yan.

      (Third) You just provided an explanation on one of the reasons why we need to improve on the OST's department and in music, and making my point for me. On the case of VIVA and Diary ng Panget, the good thing about them is that they listen to the advise, suggestion and feedback from people from comments on their youtube videos, thanks to a lot of people providing input to VIVA.

      (Fourth) Healthy at interested ang mga tao nila at ibang nationality, dahil magaling ang creativity nila at magaling mag innovate at mag adopt sa signs of the times, at hindi sila stucked in the past, na ayaw magmove on at contento na lang sa mga usuals gaya ng iba diyan sa atin.
      The ills of the present is not a phase, it is in fact the status qou that needs to break, it's been that way for a long time and will stay the same unless something is done about it. If you are banking on the past for a better future then nothing will come of it. Funny you mention the past para alam mo ang kaya mo? Nonsense. You are only making excuses that won't matter much to the present situation. In fact, looking at the past daw according to some people i've come across before is their argument why they do revival and recycled songs. Just another lazy excuse not to make new music or innovate. You do not need all that excuses to make good music. If you are innovative and have the talent and creativity,and knows how to make things work, you can make great music that will not only be a commercial success, but be a popular song not only amongst us but maybe even to other nationality. But again, comparing sa OST's ng lakorn at sa atin, and even to music at large, marami pa tayong malaking kakulangan diyan. Hindi inferiority complex na sabihin yan, and yes we need to push at mag pressure para mataohan ang mga powers that be to do the right thing for the better.

    15. 1:23, Haba ng prusisyon mo, di ka pa rin nakaligaw.
      1. Ost at mv (in effect, pop music) ang pinag-uusapan, & their kind. Read the original comment
      2. Mas maganda ang OST ng Thai sa teleserye? That's ur opinion. Maski yong revival ng Abs ok naman yong nga kanta, tapos yong orig sa GMA, if you noticed marami ring views yong subbed versions. Ang kelangang iimprove ay ang inferiority complex ng ilang Pinoy
      3.Now if Viva can make it, there's no reason why Abs can't make it if it really decided to focus there. GMA is already doing it
      4.When you mention the past, it doesn't mean you are stuck in it. It means that you used your DNA in the past, you are not using it now but your genes are still there, so you can still use it in the future. The potential is not lost. Ergo the present is just a phase

    17. 11:23 isa pa to. Ang linaw ng pinag-uusapan dito hindi ka rin maka intendi.
      1. Again, ang linaw at very specific usapan dito. back read ka all the way to the top.
      2. Tigas ulo mo rin no ayaw pa rin patalo. Sa department na yan, magaling sila kumpara sa atin. Hindi inferiority complex yan, valid observation yan. Di mo yan nakikita dahil maaamoy mo ba ang baho ng otot mo? hindi.
      3. In other words you are admitting na tama observation ko. GMA is still as bad as ABS.
      4. Of course they are stuck in the past, you don't have to look far to see the bad quality of the product. Pa DNA DNA ka pa kita naman ng lahat na may problem talaga pero ayaw parin mag move forward at mag innovate. spout all you want about the past or genes, they will still be stuck doing the usuals and lack luster product unless something is done about it.

    18. Things to ponder. Ang mga movies ng mga Thai ay mas magaling kumpara sa atin, both in quality and in successes overseas and in acceptance but other nationalities. Pasalamat tayo at hindi sila mas agressive sa pag promote at sa marketing ng kanilang teleserye/lakorn sa ibang bansa dahil may potential silang talunin tayo. Kaya kayong mga may kapangyarihan na mapaganda ang ating film at tv industry...better work harder to improve our product dahil malapit lang sa atin ang ka competitor natin ready to leave us behind in the dust. Tala na nga nila tayo sa movie department eh at sa ost's at mv....huwag complicent.

      Delete
    19. Again, only your opinions. Let me put things into proper perspectives. While generally, The Thai movie industry has been healthier for a longer time (It released the hits "Shutter" & Ongbak series during the self-inflicted-due-to-ignorance-to-foreign-machinations doldrums of the Pinoy movie industry, long before its recent recovery), it doesn't mean talo tayo sa OST's o sa lakorn. Or even sa quality of our recent movies. Pwede mas nag-excel siya sa variety ng movies (because we mostly excel in romcom & drama movies), and that is where we should focus.
      True, the movies of Apichatpong & a few others were well-received in film festivals but after the Thais have made their mark, the Pinoys followed in greater volume afterwards.
      It doesn't change the fact we are not behind in OST or even quality of our movies. Still, I agree, we shouldn't be complacent

    20. Masyadong beki dominated ang Pinoy movie industry. Dapat meron din tayong Ongbak. Indonesia nga, may Iko Uwais sila (The Raid). Tsaka, kaya wala yong mga femme fatale na aktres natin kasi walang masyadong say ang mga macho. Gandang beki usually ang standard hahaha

      Delete
    21. Healthier dahil mas magaling sila gumawa ng product nila na tinatangkilik hindi lang sa kanilang viewers kundi mga foreigners rin, dahil maganda product nila, eh sa atin, still catching up. Dami pa akong sasabihin diyan pero wag na. You can't take the next step of improvement kung ayaw admitin ang kakulangan. Pero I give you credit na dinidipend mo ang sa atin

  9. Baka di nga ma-renew ang franchise ng Abs kasi desperate na siya.Pati ICC drama pinapatulan, ang tagal ng time binibigay sa laughable opposition views...alam naman ng lahat na pam-pressure lang ng mga bankrupt Western countries yon kasi mga kalaban lang naman nila ang ginagamitan nito, a part of the regime change machinery sa mga countries na di nila ma-control. Ang kasama ni Du30 na inindict ng ICC ay ang Venezuelan Pres na ginugulo rin ngayon ng Western countries dahil di nila ma-control so the agenda is obvious.
    The best way to deal with the propaganda is to make fun if it. The bankrupt Western countries can create trouble but one can't expect much good in terms of support from them anymore so it's actually funny if you think about it

  11. Curious din kung ano ang future ng Abs at ang mga artista nya kc parang desperate na. Ibig sabihin, sure na na di mare-renew ang kanilang franchise. Alam ng Abs, kagaguhan ang lahat about the ICC drama pero patuloy pa rin ang propaganda...bobo lang naman ang maniniwala na hindi psyop agent si Sabio pero yong anchorwoman nila, 2x pa nagsabi na concerned daw sila sa safety nito. False sympathy. Duda tuloy ako, baka papatayin ng psyop masters si Sabio para kunyari Aquino uli. Pinatay noon si Aquino para nag-create ng rallying point vs. Marcos. The difference this time, wala namang kumakagat sa regime change gimik ng mga clowns so imbes na sympathy, baka matawa pa. Nasa intimidation stage lang ang kalalabasan pero it's clear walang matatakot...matawa, pwede pa hahaha

    1. Nakakarma ang Abscbn. Yong plan nya talaga was to establish a monopoly, kaya maski nagkautang-utang, tinangka bangkrapin ang GMA by pirating its talents, hiring its own rating agency which must supposedly proclaim its dominance by getting the impossible 40% ratings (really, was this even possible with our 24 hour economy & very active night life?),etc. Reality never agreed with its contrived narrative. Ang orig plan was to monetize everything- kung gusto mo manuod outside the timeslots bombarded with commercials, you should pay at Iwanttv, etc. Unfortunately, it didn't have all the aces: for one, GMA had better writers & international marketers, etc.
      This Abscbn monopoly pretension explained why Pinoy showbiz was practically absent during the time when the Asiatic film pirate scene blossomed earlier: Abscbn was adept in preventing its products from being pirated so the Pinoys were nowhere. It could have made use of the chance to popularize Pinoy showbiz internationally as part of an emerging Asian showbiz, but it was above growing a market, it was content in its monopoly delusions: it wanted the money first, & people had to pay first.
      Of course, the Pinoy stars were so cute they would be noticed anyway as what happened nang mapansin sina Jadine & the rest.
      But Abscbn doesn't know what to do if it can't make money. It had the Ofw's who are homesick anyway so who cares about Pinoy stars getting big internationally if it can't have immediately the money it wanted? For a monopolist, talk about growing a market is cheap because it only believes in the money it could have firsthand. Maski na mukhang domestic helper ang artista, sige lang, mandiri na ang international audience, ang importante maulol ang ofw, baka magbayad more.
      The current attitude of Abscbn is the biggest obstacle in order that Pinoy showbiz steps up to the next level internationally. Its monopolistic pretenses should be clipped. Fortunately, GMA has been astute enough in resisting ABSCBN, even overwhelming the latter internationally. The failure of Abscbn internationally is a damning proof it's not worthy to have a monopoly. For one, it should reject Kantar & play in a level field just like everyone else. Who knows, baka mabayaran na rin ang mga utang.
