Cate Blanchett as fascinating in person as she is onscreen
  LOS ANGELES---Cate Blanchett is as fascinating to talk to as she is to watch onscreen. Often likened to the legendary Katharine Hepburn, Cate is, of course, very much her own person.   In director Richard Linklater's film adaptation of Maria Semple's bestselling comedy novel "Where'd You Go Bernadette," Cate plays the title role, an agoraphobic, brilliant architect who goes missing prior to a family trip to Antarctica.   As Richard was quoted as saying about his lead actress, "I always say to portray a genius, you need a genius. If you're going to make a movie about Beethoven, the actor you get to play him better be a genius.

More to May-December tale than its steamy romance
  Don't be fooled by its seemingly "sampu-sampera" premise, but "Just a Stranger" quickly distinguishes itself from recent movies of the May-December persuasion, like Cinemalaya's "Belle Douleur" and "Malamaya."   While Joji Alonso's "Belle Douleur" is crafted like a proficiently helmed Star Cinema offering, it is for the most part too sterile and thematically "aseptic" for its own good. But at least it works as a showcase for the thespically sublime Mylene Dizon, whose performance is way better than the movie itself.   On the other hand, Danica Sta. Lucia and Leilani Chavez's "Malamaya" makes its neither-here-nor-there pursuit of art more trifling or sn...Keep on reading: More to May-December tale than its steamy romance

Laure admits she still has a lot to learn after facing former UST teammate Rondina
MANILA, Philippines---Eya was a force to be reckoned with in her maiden year with University of Santo Tomas in the UAAP on her way to being named as the league's Rookie of the Year in Season 81. She did that feat, though, as part of a one-two punch that included the mercurial Cherry Rondina, who won the MVP plum in that same year. When Laure transitioned into the club scene in the Philippine Super Liga All-Filipino Conference her partner, and senior at UST, Rondina was standing on the other side of the net. Rondina, a seasoned player with Petron, won the first matchup between the two teammates as the Blaze Spikers overcame Foton in five sets, 28-26, 25-27, 25-21, 24-26, 15-1...Keep on reading: Laure admits she still has a lot to learn after facing former UST teammate Rondina
