  1. I want to see John Lloyd to produce a movie, gonna boxoffice hit with any leading actress. But Julia Montes is much preferred, this is a hit making over 200 mil.

  2. alex g: How would you equate a Decline in Ads, Cheap Awards, Flop Movie Gross & Poor Artists' Endorsements, from a high ratings (daw!?!?!?!?1?) claimed by gozon? // April 4, 2011 at 4:08 pm //

    Cheating & Data Tampering, Desperate Publicity, Mind Conditioning, Mislead Info’s, Rating Manipulations, etc.

  3. alex g: Did you know that gma7 was always the first channel that SIGNS-OFF the tv? And terminated by KBP for Television Code violations? Did you also know that AGB Nielsen Media Research has a pending case here & abroad? // April 4, 2011 at 4:08 pm //

    Early Signing-Off, Cost Cutting, Debt Increase & Financial Crisis.
    Words that best describes gma.

  4. alex g: What happened to the Titan Plugs of gma? I think that's what you called, "KARMA". As usual, yung "Halo-Halo Summer Plugs", basura ulit. // April 4, 2011 at 4:08 pm //

    Pag d gawang gma, minsan nag re-rate.
    Pag gawang gma, basurang-basura.

  5. alex g: gma artists/shows are equipped with Very Poor Acting Skills. Kaya dinadaan na lang sa mga effects & fighting pose, para mairaos man lang ang basurang show at pagtakpan ang mga malalamyang pag-arte (how stupid). // April 4, 2011 at 4:07 pm //

    Boboserye, Flopserye, Peryaserye, Pornoserye, O.A.serye, T.H.serye, etc.
    Practice Drama – tatak gma.

  6. alex g: Kapit-Tuko tlga si gozon sa ratings, (as usual pag PANIC time). TALUNAN kasi sa lahat ng bagay, mapa Ads, Awards, Movies, Endorsements & Recognitions. Hay, tsk! tsk! tsk! tsk! Walang kadala-dala. // April 4, 2011 at 4:07 pm //

    Weakness tlga ng gma ang lumaban ng patas.

  7. alex g: AM/FM Programs, Balance Programming, Daytime/Primetime Shows, Foreign Programs, News Channel/Program, Promos, Regional Network Events, Sports, Station ID, TV Format, Timeslot, etc. (kinopya lahat ng gma). // April 4, 2011 at 4:07 pm //

    Konting Delicadeza naman gozon.

  8. alex g: "Walang kinikilingan, walang pinoproteksyonan, walang kasinungalingan, walang bahid pulitika, serbisyong totoo lang", Dahil d natutulog ang balita, BAYARAN niyo kami para gumawa ng commercials 24 oras". // April 4, 2011 at 4:06 pm //

    gma is coward of getting involve in politics. that’s why they tend to engage in barangay matters.
    that’s gma.

  9. alex g: Valentines Box Office King daw, ni wala nga kasabay na Filipino movie eh, 44.26M in 3 weeks lang!? (as compared to BULONG with 67.27M). May "Divine Intervention" pa raw, sabi ni mother lily (how stupid). // April 4, 2011 at 4:06 pm //

    “Napakahirap na ng buhay ngayon, kaya for a movie to make over P135 million in 3 days is a miracle. Divine intervention ito”.
    -lily monteverde (how stupid).
