Samsung’s Latest Smartphones

To invade the global market this 2017 are Samsung Galaxy A3 and Samsung Galaxy A5. These smartphones are now available for pre-order and will soon be out for the public. These latest Samsung smartphones are expected to be as successful as it’s the latest release of Galaxy S7 Edge.




Samsung Galaxy A3 And A5 Specs

Samsung Galaxy A3 has a 4.7-inch screen and Samsung Galaxy A5 has a 5.2-inch display. Both of these displays include always-on technology allowing users to check for key notifications without waking up the device and wasting precious battery life.

The same with Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge, the new A series are rated IP68 which means they can cope with a dip in water and are resistant to dust. An enhanced rear-facing camera and taking selfies feature has been made much easier for the user with the ability to touch anywhere on the screen to snap a high-resolution snap of your face.

The low light slot would no longer be a problem because Samsung Galaxy A3 & A5 uses the display as a front flash. Samsung says it’s trying to make smartphone photography less complicated on the A series with quick access to shot modes and instant filters which add effects to pictures.

Users can also use specific modes such as Food Mode to optimize and enhance the color and contrast of selected shots. There are no official specs on battery life but Samsung is boasting a long-lasting performance and fast charging via a USB Type-C port.

Samsung Galaxy A3 And A5 Price

While it has been an issue for the high-priced Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge, Galaxy A3 & A5 can be availed at a low cost. Galaxy A3 & A5 prices start at £279 or $348 dollars only. An obvious deviation from the price of Galaxy S7 Edge.

Samsung Galaxy A3 And A5 Release Date

The news of these latest devices hitting the shops comes as Samsung has revealed its next flagship Galaxy S8 won’t get its usual February release date. The highly-anticipated smartphones will be announced at a later date.

For the last three years, Samsung has used the popular MWC trade show to announce the latest iteration of its flagship Galaxy S series. But that won’t be the case this year, with fans forced to wait longer than expected before the chance to upgrade their device.

‘Die Beautiful’ Best Actor Paolo Ballesteros Surprises Audience In Every Celebrity Transformation

Die Beautiful





By: Danilo Flores II

By now, it’s pretty needless to talk about the awards “Die Beautiful” has gotten or how many international film fests this has been invited to. This is one of the Filipino movies that no longer needs domestic validation from Filipinos too. From the buzz it is making online, Director Jun Lana and Paolo Ballesteros definitely could not ask for more.






Youtube video by; Regal Entertainment, Inc.
[VIDEO]: Can you guess how many make-up transformation Paolo Ballesteros did in this movie?




Life & Death Of Tricia in “Die Beautiful”

 

Some of the viewers were expecting that “Die Beautiful” would reveal some jaw-dropping twist, a “whoah!” bomb that would surprise audiences while watching. I thought that this twist would be about how Tricia (Paolo Ballesteros) died.

But that didn’t happen. Yet, it wasn’t really a disappointment. It’s because the movie’s narrative was a beautiful irony to everyone’s expectation. Viewers were waiting for the story to elaborate on the specific details of his death because he wanted to “Die Beautiful.”

However, the story wasn’t really about her death but focused more on how Tricia lived his/her beautiful life. This is made even better with her total transformation to different famous Hollywood Celebrities, that made it somewhat different from other Filipino movies in the Metro Manila Film Festival.





Paolo Ballesteros’ Makeup Transformation

Award-winning actor Paolo Ballesteros have already made noise in social media about his versatility in imitating the looks of famous celebrity which he did all by himself. In “Die Beautiful” this talent was showcased.

Plenty of celebrities, both local and international have been shown in the film as the result of Tricia’s makeup transformation. We have Regine Velasquez, Melanie Marquez, Jacklyn Jose and Iza Calsado. For Hollywood, we can see Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry, and Beyonce.





Social Impact On LGBT Community

“Die Beautiful’s” relatability, along with its social commentary on Philippines’ still-uncomfortable acceptance of the LGBT community, is its best asset. The living proof of that is Barbs, the character played by the newcomer Christian Bables.

This guy, I believe, equally deserves best supporting actor accolades from everywhere. Tricia and Barbs’ chemistry, carrying the language and behavior we have all grown to love in recent times, is definitely why “Die Beautiful” is one of this year’s easy favorites.

AMD’s Zen Based Processor

After several failed attempts to dominate the CPU market, AMD strikes back with a promising Zen based processor architecture.

Saving Sally





By: Danilo Flores II

“Saving Sally” which was finally finish after twelve long years is a perfect harmony of animation and live action. “Saving Sally” is the masterpiece that famous Gallerist Liongoren created by the pieces in between his other projects that tells the tale of a boy who is deeply in love with a girl.

[VIDEO]: SAVING SALLY (MMFF 2016) Official Trailer Rhian Ramos



Saving Sally 12 Years Production

The successful “Saving Sally” film made its first appearance on the social media site Facebook. Film creator Liongoren at that time was raising much needed funds to finish the movie’s pot-production. Viewers got their first view of what “Saving Sally” had in store through a short trailer, black and white, with unfinished special effects.

The gallerist’s appeal made some noise as live actors took interest. But after some time, “Saving Sally” plea disappeared. Fortunately, a few years later, that is today, the masterpiece was rescued by its creator’s blood and sweat as Liongoren gave everything up just to give Saving Sally its much deserved finish. The film was mostly in English but bits of Japanese anime’s “will somebody say something already” plot is evident.


Saving Sally Plot

From the very moment Sally (Rhian Ramos) rescued Marty (Enzo Marcos) from bullies in school, the boy was smitten and ever since fell deeply in love with her. Marty was an artist and viewers were made to see the world through his comic-books. Saving Sally tells the tale of Marty as he tries to save Sally from the monsters of the world, including herself. One notable character is Nick, Sally’s boyfriend who was totally childish but proved to be essential in making one strong point in the end.




Filipino Customs And Culture

The world through Marty’s comic books is astonishing! Brilliant colors filled all its corners with eccentric shapes and adorable cartoons. Plus, it is refreshing to see that the Filipino culture prevalent in Marty’s comics through the famous Filipino Jeepney and masked characters that go around the University of the Philippines. Even the sight of street foods vendors in the comic-word is exciting.

Saving Sally’s lack of dynamics in terms of moving shots as well as CGI backgrounds for most, if not all, of its scenes on top of character’s lack of mobility during scenes is undeniably a sign of the film’s age. But this was taken as an opportunity for creators to show off their passion, creativity and originality.

Evolution of Filipino Cinematics

Saving Sally is truly an evolution of the Filipino cinematics. Saving Sally takes viewers to a journey, a roller coaster ride through a light and bubbly plot with adequate references. The movie’s adorable leads and storyline is truly relatable as the story progress. Saving Sally will definitely become a timeless reference that will demonstrate how special outcomes are when visual arts and film-making meet.
