Maine Mendoza Has Changed

Phenomenal Star Maine Mendoza is a hot topic once again.Recently, a new endorsement shoot of hers leaked online and her her hawk-eyed legions of fans were quick to grab the receipts. She was spotted at what appears to be the pictorial shoot for Maxi-Peel and word has it, she’s the new endorser of their latest product called Maxi-Peel ZERO.

Here’s what we know: Allegedly, she isn’t happy with her old brand and wanted something more than just a basic cleanser. That’s why she’s making the switch. We’ve seen Maine endorse all sorts of products but over the years, she has become much more selective in terms of products and brands she works with, choosing only the ones that she truly believes in. This is why she’s not just the top celebrity endorser in this country, she is also the most influential. Kudos to Maine for upholding that responsibility
to her fans.

Could this be the reason why Maine has been posting more selfies recently? Her supporters have been pointing out that her skin is to-die-for. Not a blemish in sight! And they are quick to add that her glowing skin is the perfect complement to her endearing personality.

Reese Dianson, a Maine loyalist, proudly exclaims: “Love namin si Maine because with her, what you see is what you get. Hindi mo siya mapipilit sa isang bagay na ayaw niya. Kaya kung magpapalit nga siya to Maxi-Peel Zero, yun talaga ang kanyang paniniwala. So kami, as true believers, lilipat din kami!” For Becca Lizada who has followed Maine from the first time she made her debut at Eat Bulaga: “Si Maine, totoong tao yan. Walang halong kaplastikan. Bawat galaw at salita niya, yun siya sa real life! Kung lumipat siya sa Maxi-Peel Zero, ibig sabihin, mas effective ito at puwede niyang itaya ang pangalan niya dito”.

True or not, Maine’s fans are buzzing with excitement and if it is, we’re betting that just like any product she endorses, Maxi-Peel ZERO will soon be flying off the shelves, too.

Top 5 Visually Stunning Movies to Enjoy on Your Mobile Phone

Our way of viewing films has changed ever since smartphones emerged. We are no longer
limited to watching through television, theater, and other large media devices. Smartphone
technology has revolutionized media accessibility as it gives us the freedom and mobility to
consume media on a whim. For instance, we can simply watch our favorite film while commuting
to work, traveling around the country, or during lunch breaks. This is certainly one way to
momentarily escape from the boredom and drudgery of the daily grind. To further feed our
artistic cravings and urge to get away from the mundane, here is a list of visually stunning
movies to enjoy on your mobile phone:

1. Loving Vincent is a 2017 experimental animated film about the life and death of Dutch
post-Impressionist painter, Vincent van Gogh. It’s the world’s first fully painted film which
required over 100 classically-trained oil painters to paint with oils on canvases (same as
van Gogh’s style) on each of the 65,000 frames used in the film. The actors had to first
film the entire movie, and the artists had to craft the animated paintings over the images
after the filming of the movie ended. This added a layer of creativity because it allowed
the viewers to still recognize the actors’ portrayal and appeal through the painted
scenes. This gem is a one-of-a-kind visual mirage of vivid whirls and colors, enriched by
the artists’ hard work and renditions of van Gogh’s masterpieces such as the celebrated
“The Starry Night” and “Sunflowers”. This work of art stars Polish theatre actor Robert
Gulaczyk on his first big feature, Douglas Booth, Jerome Flynn, and Saoirse Ronan. The
film garnered many accolades and was nominated for the Best Animated Feature at
the 2018 Academy Awards. The movie trailer may be viewed here:

painter, Vincent van Gogh.

2. Blade Runner 2049 is a 2017 neo-noir sequel to the 1982 beloved sci-fi film, “Blade
Runner”. The movie is about a replicant/bioengineered human who discovers a mystery
that leads him to another replicant who has been missing for the past thirty years. The
2017 version is progressive and poised in tone through its muted gray, blue, and yellow
visual imagery and cutting-edge effects. The non-cliche setting of a rainy and gritty
future Los Angeles added texture and depth to the visuals. It stars Ryan Gosling, Robin
Wright,  Jared Leto, Dave Bautista, and Cuban actress Anna de Armas in her first
breakout role. Harrison Ford also returned to his role from the first movie. The film was
praised by critics and won the Best Cinematography and Best Visual Effects at the 2018
Academy Awards. The film trailer may be viewed here:

3. Dunkirk is a 2017 war film written and directed by Christopher Nolan (known for
spectacular films such as “Inception” and “Interstellar”)  that portrays the British soldiers’
retreat to Dunkirk, north of France during World War II in three aspects: land, sea, and
air. Nolan crafted the movie from the perspective of the characters, aiming to use
stimulating imagery instead of the usual narrative. With the director’s signature non-
linear sequencing, paired with impactful visual storytelling, Dunkirk has been constantly
praised as one of the greatest war films of all time, and maybe even Nolan’s best work
as of yet. It stars Fionn Whitehead on his first major role,  Tom Hardy, Kenneth
Branagh, Cillian Murphy, and ex-One Direction singer Harry Styles in his film debut. This
war epic impressed many, and won the Best Editing at the 2018 Academy Awards. The
film trailer may be viewed here:

4. Mad Max: Fury Road is a 2015 action movie and reboot of the Mad Max franchise
about a post-apocalyptic wasteland where the protagonist/captive partners with a fellow
survivor to escape from a fortress run by a tyrant leader. The cinematography of this film
is stellar. With its dynamic blue and orange hues during a six-month long shoot in the
deserts of Namibia, and gripping action scenes that banked on effective execution and
actual stunts, critics have hailed the film as one of the greatest films of the 21 st century.
The film stars Tom Hardy, Charlize Theron, Nicholas Hoult, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley,
Zoƫ Kravitz, as well as Riley Keough. The movie even got the chance to be shown
through an out-of-competition screening at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival in France, and
won the Costume Design, Production Design, Makeup and Hairstyling, and Film Editing
categories at the 2016 Academy Awards. The film trailer may be viewed here:

5. The Grand Budapest Hotel is a 2014 comedy film written and directed by Wes
Anderson (known for artistic films “The Royal Tenenbaums” and “Fantastic Mr. Fox”)
centering on a concierge who befriends the lobby boy to prove that he is not guilty after
he is wrongfully accused of killing an affluent hotel guest. The visuals of the movie are
seamless---the color palette is dreamlike, the production design is quirkily stylized, and
the flawless framing of shots are all a testament to Anderson’s distinct and zany artistic
eye. It also features an ensemble cast of Ralph Fiennes, Tony Revolori in his first
notable role, Adrien Brody, Willem Dafoe, Jeff Goldblum, Jude Law, Bill Murray,
Edward Norton, Saoirse Ronan, Jason Schwartzman, Tilda Swinton, Tom Wilkinson,
and Owen Wilson. The movie is a cult favorite, and has won the Best Costume
Design, Best Makeup and Hairstyling, and Best Production Design  at the 2015
Academy Awards. The film trailer may be viewed here:
