One of the privileges in my practicum is that I get free entry passes to Premiere Nights.

So when I caught "Ang Cute ng Ina Mo" during its premiere last Tuesday, all I can say is: Watch it. Watch it 'cause it's really hilarious and it'll make you laugh your heart out. Watch it 'cause it's not your typical Tagalog comedy film. The humor is something fresh and the script's really good. And of course, you can't go wrong Ai-Ai de las Alas.

My practicum at Star Cinema has been one of the most amazing things this year has brought in. It's nice to be surrounded by people--from the big bosses to the artistas to the network's vermins (aka interns like me)--who give their heart, talent, time, and so much of themselves to their every single project. I used to look down upon our local mainstream movie industry, giving too much emphasis on how profit-oriented it is and how it makes everything a money-making venture.

Working for Star Cinema, though, changed everything. Try going to a shoot or a mall show or just a typical day at the office. You just can't help but be inspired with how everyone works together to come up with something good and not just something good enough.

Working for Star Cinema may be the most tiring thing, but the way it has been very rewarding was something I didn't really expect. I am more than halfway done with my required practicum hours, and sometimes it surprises me that I wish we had 200+ hours instead of 150.

So please please please mark your calendars on April 7 and please please please watch "Ang Cute ng Ina Mo." I guarantee you'll also say that you've never watched a Tagalog comedy this good.

And some more plugging...
