What’s good? Didn’t catch all the good stuff that was on the site this week? Don’t worry, we’ve rounded all of what you really need to read up for you here.
- “Tito Sotto’s 14th Month Pay Bill Makes Us Begrudgingly Like Him A Little More” — Again, if the word “begrudgingly” didn’t make it clear, we still don’t like him for all the misogyny the good senator spreads. Whether you like this move or not, though, an extra payday is still gonna help—if we can actually get it as promised.
- “6 Plot Devices We’d Like To See Less Of” — We keep getting the same stories in movies and TV shows. Why can’t we get better at this?
- “Sud Magazine Controversy Starts Twitter War” — This week’s cause célèbre is the cover of local music magazine PULP‘s latest issue, which casts indie band Sud as pornographers filming a girl-on-girl scene. The internet was not too thrilled at this show of outdated chauvinism.
- BONUS: “A Brief History of Controversial PULP Covers” enlightens the younger section of our audience, showing that this isn’t really a new thing through a handful of old cover images.
- “Cinemalaya 2016’s Promotional Video Spoofs The Local Film Industry” — The best comedy is self-aware comedy, but well-executed satire is even better. This ad perfectly captures what it’s like to be a Filipino moviegoer that isn’t just part of the flock.
- “Suicide Squad Movie Review: Too Edgy, Too Safe” — We guess Suicide Squad still isn’t the DC movie we’re looking for.
