It was writer-director Jun Robles Lana’s bittersweet exploration of this technological phenomenon that distinguished this film from other films during the Pista ng Pelikulang Pilipino. It had a lighter, more youthful tone that delivers an important message about our interpersonal relationships and how the Internet and social media impacted our lives. This film will make you reflect on how to nurture the relationships that you value most, perhaps old-fashioned, low-tech way, a very far cry from Millennial lifestyle.

I admire the cinematography and consider it pop due to very colorful background, good musical score and very charming characters.  Jameson Blake, Markus Paterson, Sue Ramirez were all instagram-worthy in every scene. You may find a familiar plot, when a nerdy boy stalks a pretty crush who is already romantically involved with a popular boy. The nerdy guy will take his chances, perhaps a lot of risks just to get close with his crush who may need a knight and shining armor and then to discover that it would be him after all.

There’s an important twist in the end, tear-jerker but very refreshing and creative. I think this film will be important for our younger friends to understand how to empower himself or herself and value things that goes beyond digital social affirmations like hearts or thumbs up!

It was a cute film, love the vibrant colors, actors with perfect skin, with light drama and a good bonding with younger friends.

FYI: Jerome Ponce was replaced by Markus Paterson due to conflict with his schedule.

When a netizen asked Direk Jun if Jerome would no longer be part of the movie, the filmmaker wrote in the comments section: “sadly, yes. schedule conflict.”
In a recent interview with Jameson, he told Push that they shot the trailer first before doing the actual movie.

Fil-British Markus was dubbed as the Romantic Athlete ng UK when he joined Pinoy Boyband Superstar in 2016.

The Pista ng Pelikulang Pilipino (PPP) is a nationwide week-long celebration which will exclusively screen Filipino films in all theaters nationwide from August 15-21, 2018.It is now on its second year and is in line with the Buwan ng Wika. This is organized by the Film Development Council of the Philippines in partnership with the theaters, and public and private partners.

Meanwhile, is there really such an allergy to Wi-Fi?

For some time now, people with unexplained and recurring headaches, dizziness and skin irritation have been blaming their often severe discomfort on sensitivity to electromagnetic field sources, a condition sometimes called electromagnetic hypersensitivity (EHS), according to the World Health Organization (WHO).

Does electromagnetic hypersensitivity really exist? The experts do not think so. The World Health Organisation said there was no ‘no scientific basis’ to link symptoms with emissions from electromagnetic fields. EHS is also not considered to be a medical condition in the UK.

Here are some review I found online:
