Publisher's Note

  • Publisher’s Note

    It was 22 years ago when I arrived in Canada and chose Calgary, Alberta to be my home.  Leaving my family and friends behind, it was a new adventure for me to be in a new country without knowing anyone.  That was the time I looked for a Filipino community paper and never found any, [...]

“Daniel Padilla shows genuine talent in Crazy Beautiful You; Kathryn Bernardo appears ready for more mature roles. The chemistry between the two central characters threads on familiar waters, and is mostly carried by Padilla’s powerful screen presence and natural charm.  Padilla assumes the mantle well, showing off a kind of luster similar to his uncle Robin Padilla in his prime. He wears the rugged, probinsiyano aura far better than most actors of his generation.” - Duane Lucas Pascua, Philippine Entertainment Portal,

“The film’s an indubitable charmer.Cruz (director Mae Cruz-Alviar), who has been churning out rom-com after rom-com without any consistency in quality, finally chalks up something that is entertaining through and through. Cruz and her team of writers have no ambitions in revising the formula. In fact, Crazy Beautiful You works because it doesn’t stray too far from what has been tried and tested, minimizing the risks of stumbling over botched experimentation. Given this, the subtle beauty of the film is in the details wherein the creative team has sprinkled some snippets of reality, but still within the scope of what’s generally palatable to the movie-going public.” - Oggs Cruz,

“The onscreen chemistry between Daniel and Kathryn works really well with the movie’s storyline and characters.  Crazy Beautiful You brings back emotions that most of us ‘older’ people have forgotten.  Aside from just being your ordinary teen romantic flick, the touch of social responsibility makes it more than a commercial film.  Kudos to Direk Mae Cruz-Alviar and Star Cinema!” - Michael Nitro, Asian Journal,


“Kathryn’s refreshing presence and DJ’s winking portrayal (and that toothsome grin, for his swooning fans) aren’t the film’s only attractions: It’s easy to get invested in the love story they breathe life into, because the breathtaking views and stunning landscapes in the backdrop are conducive to their characters’ disarming romance.

“The movie gets off to a shaky start, but finds its footing soon enough. Moreover, its ’simple’ but intimate stories about relationships lend dramatic weight to and complement the production’s deliberate rom-com fizz.

“While some side stories are rushed for the film’s requisite Happily Ever After finale, they’re nevertheless staged with conviction and credible dramatic relish as the movie drives its inspiring message about second chances right into viewers’ hearts!” - Rito P. Asilo,
