A One Way Voyage........

I live life not the way I want it. I live life the way I decided. Decisions never always reflect what you want. Whether it's a mistake or not, it is the way God wanted it to be. Not known for now, but there is a reason, for I have died once, yet lived again. Be it fraught with upsets, at the end of the road, for as long as I can say "I have not harmed a soul", then it withstood the waves and the journey was perfect.-Falcon116

ABS-CBN & STAR CINEMA...PLEASE LEAVE TWILIGHT ALONE



I was watching Entertainment Live on TFC this morning, while my husband was, I think, in the computer room playing poker on line. All of a sudden I let out this bloodcurdling scream..."NOoooooooooo!!!$$%#@!!!"

I could actually feel the house in tremors. Then he came running down frantically asking...why? what happened? what's wrong?

What's wrong?!!! Rumours about ABS-CBN paying $1M for the rights to produce a local version of TWILIGHT...What’s wrong? Shaina Magdayao and Rayver Cruz coveted to play the role of Bella and Edward...What’s wrong? The supposedly new title is the literal translation in Tagalog, TAKIPSILIM...What’s wrong? Everything sounds wrong! My first thought was...Hell NNNOOOOO!!! Then reverberated to, WHAT THE HELL ARE THEY THINKING? ARE THEY STUPIDLY SERIOUS?

Apparently ABCCBN has availed the rights...But it’s good of them to clear out unfounded rumours and stump on gossip mongrels

I have so much respect and admiration for ABS-CBN and Star Cinema for making movies well suited for the Filipino audience. I love a lot of their films, and I am sure there are more people around the world who share my feelings, but that is not enough to substantiate a call for a local version of the much loved and embraced vamp anthology. Star cinema creates movies that tickle us the Filipino way, Twilight is not for Star Cinema. Twilight is a surreal world altogether, a world that only belongs to Stephenie Meyer’s mind, imparted to those who have read the books.

Lobo, I followed so ceremoniously. But, not even PioloPascual can do justice to Edward’s absolute flawlessness and mysticism. Even in my previous post, I did mention that the movie is not as good as the book, even though the Hollywood version did justice to the story. With all due respect to ABSCBN and Piolo... But how can ABS-CBN possibly out-do Summit Entertainment? I love Piolo like a god, but a god is nowhere near a fictional Vamp who’ve won my heart and the world over...To hear that Rayver is playing Edward...My heart sank like it was never gonna beat again. No offence to Rayver and Shaina, I have no doubt they’re brilliant actors ...But it’s just wrong.

It’s the impossibility of Edward’s Utopian faultlessness that we want to hold on to in our minds. Not the textbook reality of show business. One face for each character (Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, and them mob) is enough to hold a little bit of mortality in all the Twilighter’s imaginations.

I feel very protective of the images of all the characters in my head. It’s something I would not want to be degenerated by images of famous real people. I am sure other Twilighters feel the same way.

As I’ve said, ABS-CBN refuted this rumour...So thank you ABS-CBN. To you, I give my reverence. I just hope that if ever the opportunity arises for you to obtain a copyright, you will not do it. Please don’t attenuate the power that this creative work has embedded in our imaginations. It’s a beautiful story which, no doubt in my mind, will attain the same stature as any given well adulated literary classic. This creative work will be around for as long as the Cullens live.

Having said all that, I am also hoping that Stephenie Meyer won’t sell copyrights to any other production company but SUMMIT ENTERTAINMENT. I am hoping she won’t be blandished by any monetary offers...especially not at $1M. Her TWILIGHT is priceless. The one with Kristen and Robert is enough. Let there be no other players and versions on this beautiful piece of endeavour... No more...

No other versions...Please.

yes you're right. Not even piolo is good enough to be Edward. No one is good enough to be Edward. Boycot natin if ever.

How dare these little movie makers think they can do justice to the story? Catherine Hardwicke failed misserably. So how can they possibly?

AMEN Twilight Bros and sis. But as I've said, it's not true. ABS-CBN issued a statement that there is no shed of truth to this 'TAKIPSILIM'. This photograph of Shaina and Rayver had been photoshopped. We can only hope ABSCBN will not even try securing a copyright.
