have you ever wander, how there are no longer action films being shown among philippine cinemas?
i just realized this after seeing jeric raval as one of dennis padilla and long mejia's guests in kapamilya deal or no deal.
when dennis called for help in the second set of the game, he called in JERIC RAVAL. it was a long pause before i was able to recall the name. i finally remembered him as one of the action stars in the 90s. he is often partnered with either jennifer sevilla or shirley fuentes. he also contributed to the era of black leather jackets and maong pants together with robin padilla.
i immediately grabbed my phone and sent a group message to all of my friends indicating the comeback apparition of the former action star. most of their response was, who is jeric raval?
at the back of my head, how come these guys don't know jeric raval? i am just an older or probably a year younger to them. so how come they don't know him?
probably, i thought its been a while since we've seen jeric raval. or better yet, its been a while since we've since a philippine action movie.
philippine cinema today, is bombarded by either fantasy, comedy, drama or love story movies. the golden years of both action and sexy movies had begun losing its spot in the movie screen except on specific movie houses in recto and cubao, which still shows cynthia luster movies. come to think of it, probably our country just have had enough of the fights, violence and high volume of rape cases over the past years. so the movie industry decided to uplift the masses' morale by giving lighter movies to watch.
just a thought that i pondered.
