It seems that public unrests, political turmoil and uncertainties may also contributed to the proliferation and sudden influx of sex-oriented films as what we witnessed during the ‘Bomba era’ in the 70s and the ‘Bold era’ in the 80s.

‘Bomba’ movies were in during the time before Martial Law, when student activism and communist insurgency were at its peak. It holds true in the 80s, during the time of the newly installed revolutionary government of President Cory Aquino, when we saw the widespread flooding of bold or even so-called ‘pene’ movies. The bold movies trend was already on the upswing even in 1984 and 85 after the assassination of opposition leader Benigno Aquino. These are some of my personal observations.

In 1986, a total of close to 30 bold movies were produced and shown. Most of these bold movies were showing not only the skins but the actual sex act which they termed as ‘pene’ short for penetration. Producers insisted that it’s an art, but these lame excuses were dumb ridiculous. Those movies were short of being called soft porn and producers were laughing their hearts out going to the banks. These bold stars ruled but their reigns were brief and short. Most of them appeared in a couple of movies only and after that sidelined and vanished--- the victims of sexual exploitation.

Except for Ana Marie Gutierrez, Maria Isabel Lopez, Sarsi Emmanuel, and Jackyn Jose, the new set of bold stars that figured prominently in 1986 were Cristina Crisol, Maureen Mauricio, Joy Sumilang, Jenny Varga, Rowena Ruiz, Barbara Benitez, Didith Romero, Lala Montelibano, Kristal Kristobal, Olivia Ortiz, Lolita Lamar, Scarlet Suarez, Vida Verde, Farrah Floro, Maria Montes, Stella Suarez, Jr., Paola Berenguer, Tanya Gomez, Lola, Lampel Cojuangco…George Estregan, Gino Antonio, Tani Cinco, Lito Gruet, Greggy Liwag, Dick Israel, Mark Joseph, Bobby Benitez…

"KING OF POP" MICHAEL JACKSON IS DEAD, 50



“He was perhaps the most exciting performer of his generation, known for his backward-gliding moonwalk, his feverish, crotch-grabbing dance moves and his high-pitched singing, punctuated with squeals and titters.”




Michael Jackson, the “King of Pop” who once moonwalked above the music world, died as he prepared for a comeback bid to vanquish nightmare years of sexual scandal and financial calamity. He was 50. Jackson died Thursday at
UCLA Medical Center after being stricken at his rented home in Holmby Hills. Paramedics tried to resuscitate him at his home for nearly three-quarters of an hour, and then rushed him to the hospital, where doctors continued to work on him. “It is believed he suffered cardiac arrest in his home. However, the cause of his death is unknown until results of the autopsy are known, “ his brother Jermaine said. Police said they were investigating, standard procedure in high-profile cases.


Jackson’s death brought a tragic end to a long, bizarre, sometimes farcical decline from his peak in the 1980s, when he was popular music’s all-around performer, a uniter of black and white music who shattered the race barrier on MTV, dominated the charts and dazzled even more on stage. His 1982 album, ‘Thriller’ ---which included the blockbuster hits Beat It, Billie Jean and Thriller--- is the best selling album of all time, with an estimated 50 million copies sold worldwide.

At the time of his death, Jackson was rehearsing hard for what was to be his greatest comeback. He was scheduled for an unprecedented 50 shows at a London arena, with the first set for July 13. (Lynn Elber)

MGA PELIKULANG AGIMAT NI RAMON REVILLA, SR.


ABS-CBN Network is set to offer another action-adventure series as they tied up with the Revilla family and Imus Productions for remaking the movies of legendary Ramon Revilla Sr. to be entitled “Agimat” (Ang Mga Alamat ni Ramon Revilla). Four promising actors were given a chance to reprise the well-known characters of Revilla Sr. Gerald Anderson will be portraying Tiagong Akyat in “Hulihin si Tiagong Akyat.” Jake Cuenca, on the other hand, will reprise the character “Elias Paniki.” Coco Martin plays the role of a lizard in “Agimat ni Tonyong Bayawak.” And last but definitely not the least - from the Revilla clan – is Jolo Revilla who will play “Pepeng Agimat.” According to Andeng, daughter of Revilla Sr., the idea of remaking the films of her father was presented to them by the network about two years ago.



The Revilla family and ABS-CBN also agreed that there should be a Revilla to be included in the film to continue the legacy of the renowned clan. “It was part of the agreement that we want a member of the family to portray one of the characters just top preserve the legacy of the senior… Sabi ko siguro ang bida natin si Jolo and ABS-CBN said ‘oo naman’ kasi para hindi mahiwalay from three generations from my dad to kuya Bong and to Jolo,” Andeng explained.

“Agimat” will circle in the story of four men whose lives have been altered by a diwata or fairy as she gives them special powers in the form of an agimat. (Source-SunStar Manila/ June 22, 2009)

When Ramon Revilla, Sr., a popular actor of the 50s, made
Nardong Putik, his comeback movie in 1972, he scored big in the tills, smashing all existing box-office records that time. It’s a film on a notorious criminal whose amulet or anting-anting or agimat made him invincible and protected him from bullets. His next two movies, Pepeng Agimat and Hulihin si Tiagong Akyat, also did well in the box-office which starred him also with an agimat. Besides being Nardong Putik, Pepeng Agimat and Tiagong Akyat, he was also known as Kumander Agimat, Tonyong Bayawak, Kapitan Inggo, Pepeng Kuryente, Elias Paniki and Joaquin Burdado, all characters wielding agimats with varying and incredible powers.
