The Healing

The HealingThe Healing is another engaging horror flick by Chito Roño that generates a respectable amount of suspense. This movie is starred by Gov. Vilma Santos for her 50th anniversary in show business and co-starred by Kim Chiu, Joel Torre, Janice de Belen, Pokwang, Martin del Rosario and many others. It was directed by Chito Roño.

I am really unsure of what to expect last night at the Director’s Cut of Chito Rono’s The Healing. Star Cinema’s The Healing is a story of Filipino tradition wherein people are asking for help on treatment of diseases. A news about the miraculous works of a faith healer spread like wildfire attracting the attention of people suffering from various illness coming from all walks of life. All of the sudden, the faith healer stops her “healing” sessions but was forced by a group of patient.

The story circled with the aftereffects of bringing a dead person back into life by a faith healer. Ever since that incident, lives of all those cured by the healer has been put into danger. An appearance of a doppelganger is a sign that something bad is going to happen to a character. When a character meets his doppelganger, he will go insane, harming other people and then eventually killing himself. The only way to break the curse is to kill the person who was brought back to life.

Fun – We Are Young

There’s a lot of talk these days about the current state of the singles chart. Accusations of songs sounding alike and the same old acts shooting straight to the top have been flying around for a while, and while it’s something we’ve strongly defended (hasn’t it always been that way?), the recent success of FUN. is likely to have silenced a few cynics.

What’s more, it’s been a long time coming for the indie-pop band who, after a string of non-starters, can well and truly consider ‘We Are Young‘ their breakthrough moment. “Give me a second, I need to get my story straight,” Nate Ruess sings over a featherlight piano and drums riff before the anthemic, lighter-waving chorus reminiscent of Queen ensues. The result is a brilliant anomaly for some, and another worldwide-worthy hit for the rest of us.
