Today, I proclaim that I’m God’s Beloved, I’m God’s Servant, I’m God’s powerful champion, And because I am blessed, I will bless the world, In Jesus Name, Amen.

SHANG CINEPLEX: Free Movies Schedule

SHANG CINEPLEX: Free Movies Schedule

Want to relax but doesn't have the money to pay for a movie pass? Worry no more! You can now watch movies for free. Last January 22, 2013 I wrote about the Free Movies in Shangri-La Edsa sponsored by Shangri-La Plaza together with ADMU's Ricardo Leong Center for Chinese Studies & Confucius Institute, Credit Suisse and Ateneo Celadon present cinephiles' most awaited 2013 Spring Film Festival from February 1 to 10, 2013 at the Shang Cineplex with free admission!
The Movies

  • Piano in a Factory: A man goes to unusual lengths to prove his love for his daughter in this family drama. Chen Guilin is a man who loves music and plays accordion in an amateur band, but Chen can’t support himself on what he makes as a musician, and his job in a steel mill isn’t about to make him rich. Now his wife, Xiao Ju, returns home to file a formal divorce, as well as custody of their daughter. To retain his daughter, he must give her a piano. Chen exhausts all means: borrowing money from his friends and even attempting to steal a piano, but all his attempts fail. Despite these challenges, Chen always maintains an optimistic outlook. Finally, he decides to produce a steel piano with his friends.
  • Storm Warriors: An epic battle is played out by warriors harnessing the power of the elements in this effects-laden fantasy /action drama Hong Kong film. The brave Lord Nameless is the leader of a band of heroic warriors. Lord Godless, his nemesis, captures Nameless in a daring raid, imprisons his soldiers and takes control of his land. As things look hopeless, three of Nameless's allies set out to free him: Cloud (Aaron Kwok), Wind (Ekin Cheng) and Chu Chu (Yan Tang). As Cloud absorbs what he's learned from Nameless and Wind is tutored in combat by Wicked, can they fend off Godless and his cronies?
  • Golden Times: Fueling China’s economic boom is the mass migration of workers from the countryside to cities. This leaves a special population of 58 million ‘left-behind children’ in the care of their old, and mostly illiterate grandparents. What should have been carefree years for these children can only be characterized by weariness from studying and burdensome farm work. Teacher Fang and police officer Sun Dayang realize that the affections and instructions of parents during the early years are irreplaceable. Getting support from the local government, they set up a “Home for Left-Behind Children,” which helps the kids from this population attain a healthy and loving environment in the hands of the community.
  • Jasmine Women: Starring Zhang Ziyi (House of Flying Daggers), Joan Chen and Jiang Wen, Jasmine Women tells the story of one family's struggle to overcome its tragic history, as each daughter repeats the mistakes of her mother. Director Hou Yong sets his film in the 1930's, 50's and 80's against the backdrop of an ever-changing Shanghai and tells the stories of Mo, Li and Hua, which when translated to English together means Jasmine Flower.
  • 2Become1: Bingo Leung, an advertising executive, has always lived a carefree life that includes guarding her turf in the office, dating, and gossiping with her three girlfriends. One day, she finds a lump in her left breast. Everything begins to fall apart as she tries to cope with the loss of femininity in a series of bittersweet events. With the help of a happy-go-lucky Doctor V and a shy but talented teenager Sing, Bingo begins to find new meanings in her turmoil and the will to face her own demons.
  • Space Dream: The son of a peasant family, Zhang Tiancong (Liu Zhibing) is a veteran member of the first generation of Chinese astronauts but, now in his 40s, has yet to be selected for a space mission. Meanwhile, his family, including his daughter and ace military pilot Siyu (Jiang Ruijia), continues to support his quickly fading dream. Tiancong’s last shot is a mission is of exceptional importance; it involves docking spaceship Wentian I with a satellite to establish China's first manned orbital space station. Will Tiancong get picked to pilot Wentian I and finally realize his space dream? Or will he be stuck on backup duty again?

FREE MOVIES: Cine Europa Film Festival at Shangrila Plaza

The 15th edition of the Cine Europa Film Festival will open today, September 5, 2012 at Shangri-La Plaza. It will include a performance by the Manila String Quartet, a painting exhibition by local artists and the screening of the movie "Upperdog" to mark the inclusion for the first time of a movie from Norway.
To mark its fifteenth year (15th) Cine Europa will draw on its collaboration with the Film Development Council of the Philippines (FDCP) to double the number of Film Festival locations from three to six. Yes, folks, screenings will now be at: 
  • Shangri-La Plaza (September 6 to 16)
  • Ayala Center in Cebu (September 21 to 24)
  • Liceo de Cagayan in Cagayan de Oro (September 27 to 30)
  • Davao (October 4 to 7)
  • Baguio (October 11 to 14)
  • Iloilo (October 18 to 21). 
Cine Europa 15 is first and foremost an opportunity for Filipinos to enjoy the taste of Europe's particular cinematic traditions. It is also an opportunity for us Europeans to wear our heart on our sleeve and share our hopes, fears and dreams with our Filipino friends according to Julian Vassallo  of the The European Union Delegation to the Philippines.

This year's educational component and the screening of select Filipino movies will also explore the links between the European and Filipino cinema which are deeper than many people may think. Educational round tables will tackle different aspects of cinematic art while information will be made available on Filipino filmmakers may be able to access European funds.


For the first time, organisers of Cine Europa are tapping the resources of the Independent Film Cooperative (IFC) to enhance further the educational component of the festival with round table discussions with prominent film personalities and experts exploring the links between European and Filipino films while also offering screenings of selected Filipino movies with European connections.

Four Filipino films will be featured in the festival:
  •  September 8, 2012 at 1 pm at the Shang’s Premiere Theatre- "Paglipad ng Anghel" by Clodualdo del Mundo Jr.
  •  September 15, 2012 - Documentary film "Kano". "Bakal Boys", considered as the most awarded Filipino film in 2009.
  •  "MNL 143" that premiered in the Edinburgh film festival last July 2012 will also be featured.
From its humble beginning of just only 11 films in 1998, Cine Europa will now present 21 films from:
  •  Austria
  •  Belgium
  •  Bulgaria
  •  Czech Republic
  •  Denmark
  •  Finland
  •  France
  •  Germany
  •  Italy
  •  The Netherlands
  •  Norway
  •  Romania
  •  Slovakia
  •  Spain
  •  Sweden
  •  Switzerland
  •  United Kingdom.
The Manila leg of Cine Europa will open with the movie "Upperdog" which tackles multiculturalism from the experiences of two young Koreans adopted by two different families from Oslo. Directed by Sarah Johnsen, "Upperdog" received various "Amanda" awards - the equivalent of Oscars in Norway. In Cebu, the festival will open with the Italian movie by Bernardo Bertolucci, "L'Ultimo Imperatore" (The Last Emperor).

The Manila edition of Cine Europa will be inaugurated by the Chargé d'Affaires a.i. of the Delegation of the European Union, Lubomir Frebort in the presence of European Ambassadors and Consuls as well as Ms. Lala Fojas, Executive Vice-President and General Manager of Shangri-La Plaza Corporation.

Cine Europa 15 is organised by the European Union Cultural Group in Manila which gathers together the Embassies and Cultural Institutes of the European Union. 

The Embassies of Norway and Switzerland, the Film Development Council of the Philippines, the Independent Film Cooperative, the Shangri-La Plaza Mall (Manila), Arts Council of Cebu and Liceo de Cagayan de Oro (Mindanao) are Partners of Cine Europa 15.

Where: Shangri-La Plaza 
When: August 2 to 6, 2012

The Taipei Economic and Cultural Office brings a small program of Taiwanese films to the Shang Cineplex. Running from August 2 to 6, 2012, the third Taiwan Film Festival pays tribute to one of Taiwan’s greatest directors, as well offers a selection of contemporary documentaries that chronicle the life of modern Taiwan. Admission is free. 

Here’s what they’ve got to offer:

A Time to Live, A Time to Die

Half of the festival’s program is given over to films by director Hou Hsiao-Hsien. Hou is easily one of Taiwan’s most accomplished directors. His career spans decades, and he had won dozens of awards from all over the world. And yet his work tends to go largely unseen outside of the festival circuit. These films serves as a fine introduction to the director’s work. 

A Time to Live, A Time to Die (Tong Nian Wang Shi, 1985). This film tells the story of a young boy whose family moves from Mainland China to Taiwan in 1947. Based loosely on Hou’s own experiences as a young man, this coming-of-age film explores the rift that occurs between the boy and his family as he loses touch with his cultural heritage. The film can be challenging, requiring patience from the viewer as it meanders through the mundane lives of its characters. But there are moments of such immense beauty and sadness in it that one can’t help but be moved.
The Boys from Fangkuei

The Boys from Fangkuei (Fēngguì lái de rén, 1983) comes a little bit before Hou found his directorial voice, but one can already see the filmmaker putting together the pieces of what would become his style. This is also a coming-of-age picture, following a group of delinquents from a small seaside town. They spend their time shooting pool, getting drunk and picking up girls, before moving to the city Kaohsiung to look for work. And there they discover that they don’t know as much about the world as they thought. The Boys from Fangkuei isn’t as polished as the rest of Hou’s films, but it can be surprisingly moving. It can be surprisingly tender, the story tinged with nostalgia and a quiet sense of humor.

Dust in the Wind

Dust in the Wind (Liàn liàn fēng chén, 1986) touches on the same themes as The Boys of Fengkuei, the film also depicting the plight of small town Taiwanese kids who arrive at the big city. This one follows a teenage couple as they move from their small village and try to make in Taipei. They are in love, but their love struggles to survive their economic and political reality. But where The Boys from Fangkuei feels a bit like a cautionary tale, this film plays out as a real tragedy, finding real anguish in the character’s simple acceptance that life continues to go on.

Three Times

The festival is also screening Three Times (Zuì hǎo de shí guāng, 2005), which was shown in last year’s program. If you missed it last year, you really ought to see it now. It’s a remarkable film that tells stories of romance set against conflict, with the same two actors portraying the lovers in each story. Not every segment works, but the film is able to build to a depth of emotion that can be quite moving.

Grandma’s Hairpin

The other half of the program is composed of documentaries. Of the four, Grandma’s Hairpin (Hsiao Chu-Chen, 2000, Yin Zan Zi) might be the one most worth seeing. The director tells the story of her father, who was one of the soldiers that had retreated to Taiwan back in 1949 following a defeat at the hands of the communists in 1949. Back then, the soldiers believed that they would soon be able to return to China, but that actually didn’t happen until 1987. Some of the soldiers attempt to rebuild a life in a China that no longer feels like home. It’s incredibly powerful stuff, the film digging into the very idea of Taiwan as a nation by examining the lives of the people who had fought for it.

The Man Who Plants Trees

The Man Who Plants Trees (Zhong Shu De Nan Ren, 2008, Lin Yu-Hsien) tells the remarkable tale of Lu Ming-Shih, a man who sets out to plant trees all along the Tropic of Cancer. The documentary follows him as he attempts to plant trees on the Chianan plain, finding resistance along the way. This is the story of a dreamer, a man so in love with nature that he dedicates his life to it.


Classmates (2009, Cheng Yao-Ting) follows four young people who were graduates of a special inclusive school program, which integrated special needs students with regular students. The film looks into their lives as they approach the responsibilities of adulthood, while also documenting the development and the current state of the inclusive program that would become so important in their lives.


And finally, Stars (Xing Guang Chuan Qi, 2008, Hsu Ming-Chun) is a documentary on Taiwanese reality singing competition Million Star. The film follows a few of the contestants from the second season of the show, looking in their lives and following them as they climb the ladder of stardom. The film presents the show as a magical place where dreams come true, which is a little suspect. Still, the contestants are real people, and seeing them live out their pop star fantasies can be somewhat compelling.

FREE FRENCH MOVIES Brought to you by Citi-Rustan’s French Film Festival

Citi-Rustan’s French Film Festival is open to the public from June 7 to 17 at the Shang Cineplex in Shangri-La Plaza Mall.

Tips to enjoy these FREE MOVIES:
  • Be there at least two (2) hours before showing time.1st come 1st served
  • Tickets will be distributed 30 minutes before screening time  
  • There's only 219 seats inside the cinema so in excess of that 219 seats they will no longer allow you to enter but don't be sad, you can always line up for the next film that will be shown, o di ba una ka na sa pila ha ha ha! joke lang!
  • In case, you haven't been to Shang Cineplex it is located on the 6th level.
Seventeen of France’s most-loved film feats await cinephiles this year, which includes a seven-film retrospect on director-extraordinaire Olivier Assayas, one of the first European directors to pay attention to Asian films; and an eight-film treat from L’Institut Francais.

The festival opens with no less than the 2012 Academy award-winning movie The Artist, a black-and-white silent film that follows the life of George Valentin - a Hollywood silent film star - whose career has come to a close due to the collapse of the silent film industry. He attempts to revive his career by financing his own picture, which opens against a talkie starring up-and-coming young dancer Peppy Miller, who he develops a fascination for.

Kicking off the streak of Assayas films is L’Eau froide (Cold Water), a story that revolves around the individual lives of Gilles and Christine - both children of divorced parents - who eventually decide to hit the road together after Christine escapes a mental institution and meets up with Gilles at a party. The journey ends as they end up at the Massif central, where Christine disappears and leaves Gilles to face up to his future.

Next in line is experimental film Irma Vep, which stars Hong Kong action star Maggie Cheung as herself coming to Paris to play Irma Vep in a story that recreates Louis Feuillade’s Les Vampires. However, trouble arises as the fragile nature of French film-making and the director’s mental instability make the shoot a total catastrophe.

Les Destinées Sentimentales (Sentimental Destinies) takes on the heartwarming story of Jean and Pauline, whose sentimental destinies intertwine in the midst of a post-World War I society where certainties and industrial dynasties are crumbling. Even though Jean has resigned himself to the failure of his past marriage, they both find a love that is stronger than the past and the passing time.

Industrial espionage, corporate war and personal duels make for a plot for Demonlover, where young, seductive senior executive Diane de Monx becomes a pawn in global intrigues and treachery stretching from Japan to Mexico after the company she belongs to acquires Tokyo Anime, a Japanese company that produces animated pornography.

Emily Wang tries to get back on her feet in Clean, where she vows to give up drugs and change her ways in order to resume her role as a mother after being forbidden to see her son Jay. However, after getting to see Jay again and spending several wonderful hours with him, she finds herself confronted with a choice between her son and the chance to resume her singing career. The Film Clean won the Technical Grand Prize Award at the Cannes Film Festival in 2004.

Capping off the Assayas anthology is Family tension intensifies within the Berthier family as conflicting ideas rise to the surface upon the death of their mother, Hélène Berthier, whose life has been devoted to preserving the legacy of her uncle - painter Paul Berthier. The children are left to deal with objects from the past and must decide whether to break up the collection or live with it, as well as what is to become of the family home.

Kicking off the film line-up from L’Institut Francais is Le Mariage à Trois (The Three-way Wedding), where playwright Auguste struggles to finish his play and his feelings towards lead star Fanny, who also happens to be his former wife. When Fanny informs him that she will be marrying Theo, his leading man, Auguste tries to prove himself by seducing Harriet - his young assistant - who he later finds to be the ideal fit for the play’s principal role.

Au fond des Bois (Deep in the Woods) stirs intrigue with the character of Timothee - a strange yet charismatic drifter who managed to impress everyone, including Doctor Hughes and her daughter, Josephine, with his talent for magic and hypnosis. But when he subjects Josephine to a brutal rape, his image is tainted and he leaves the village with Josephine in tow. Doctor Hughes is then left wondering if she is going off on her own free will or if he has mesmerized her into doing his bidding.

Le Refuge (Hideaway) revolves around the lives of Mousse and Louis - a rich, young, beautiful couple whose lives have been invaded by drugs. One day, they overdose and Louis dies. Mousse survives, but soon learns she's pregnant. Feeling lost, Mousse runs away to a house far from Paris. Several months later, Louis' brother joins her in her refuge.

Meanwhile, Roses à Crédit (Roses on Credit) is a drama centered on a woman whose life is taken over by greed. Struggling with the aftermath of World War II, Marjoline and her husband, Daniel, dig themselves deeper into debt with no end in sight as Marjoline’s lust for consumer products ceases to fade.

Journey with close friends Lila and Ely as they are lured by the Paris elite in Tout Ce Qui Brille (All that Glitters). Unable to resist, they begin to pick up tips and tricks on how to infiltrate the upper class and begin to carve unique paths for themselves; but the new social circles begin to take their toll both on a familial and romantic level - and the friendship between Lily and Ely begins to strain and crack under the pressure of social advancement. Tout Ce Qui Brille (All that Glitters) won the Best First Film Award at the 2011 César Awards.

Composed of several chapters, L’Art d’Aimer (The Art of Love) is a movie following the stories of several Parisian couples. Isabelle, who has not had sex in a year, declines Zoé’s offer to "lend" her husband - and ends up impersonating Amélie, who cannot bring herself to sleep with her buddy Boris. On the other hand, Achille prances around a possible new affair, a middle-aged couple’s marriage is threatened, and a pair of young lovers discovers the pangs of jealousy.

L’Ordre et La Morale (Rebellion) is a film set in Ouvea island in New Caledonia, where 30 policemen are held hostage by locals fighting for their independence. 300 members of the French Army Special Forces Unit are immediately sent on a mission, in an attempt to solve the situation through mutual trust and dialogue over violence.

Last but not least, L’arnac?ur (Heartbreaker) brings the festival to a close as lead character Alex, together with his sister, operates a business designed to break up relationships. Hired by a wealthy man to prevent the wedding of his daughter to an Englishman, they try to complete the seemingly impossible job of breaking up a relationship that looks like it has none of the usual flaws, thus putting Alex’s honorable principles to the test.

Free Movies in Ayala Center Cebu

Free Movies in Ayala Center Cebu! This is certainly a very good news to all Inday and Dodong!  

The 2012 Citi-Rustan’s French Film Festival goes to Cebu from June 21 to 23, 2012 at the Ayala Center in Cebu in cooperation with the Alliance Française de Cebu.

The movies are open to the public for Free!

Through the cooperation of the Institut Français and Philippine film distributor Pioneer films, French films such as:
  •  “Le Mariage a Trois” (The Three-way Wedding) by Jacques Doillon
  •  “Au Fond des Bois” (Deep Woods) by Benoit Jacquoyt
  •  “Le Refuge” (Hideaway) by Francois Ozon
  •  “Roses a Credit” (Roses on Credit) by Amos Gitai
  •  “Tout-ce qui Brille” (All that Glitters) by Geraldine Nakache 
  •   and Herve Mimran, “L’Art d’Aimer” (The Art of Love) by Emmanuel Mouret
  •   “L’Ordre et La Morale” (Rebellion) by Mathieu Kassovits
  •    and “L’Arnacoeur” (Heartbreaker) will be shown in this year’s festival.
They say that perhaps the most outstanding film in the world this year is Michel Hazanavicius’ ‘The Artist,’ which pays tribute to the beginnings of cinema as both an art of telling stories through moving pictures and an industry producing economic products affected by market trends and management strategies.
"The Artist" has received “hundreds of awards” in international festivals, recently winning five Oscars, including Best Motion Picture, Best Director, and Best Actor for Jean Dujardin. 


Good News my dear readers! There are several Tagalog independent films that will be shown tomorrow, Tuesday, June 12, 2012 for FREE at Shangri-La Plaza Mall Shang Cineplex.

The 2012 French Film Festival honors Philippine cinema by screening Filipino films that have been shown in several festivals in France or whose directors have participated in French workshops or seminars. 

The screening of Filipinos films during the French Film Festival “highlights the cooperation between France and the Philippines through cinema”. Traditionally held on June 12, the Philippine Independence Day.

Among the films to be shown this year are:
