Pia Wurtzbach as a Revenger? A Disastrous Face-Palm Career Move?

Wazzup Pilipinas!

"Star Cinema's "The Revengers" starring Box Office King Daniel Padilla, Phenomenal Box Office Star Vice Ganda and Miss Universe Pia Wurtzbach make it to the list!"

The headline may be a bit distracting especially for those who appreciate quality films. Now that the Metro Manila Film Festival (MMFF) has announced a partial list of the participating movies that made it to the initial cut, many netizens can't help but frown with the revelation.

When everyone thought change has come to the MMFF when it introduced us to quality indie films last year, now it seems the "Reel Revolution" is gone as the likes of Vice Ganda and Vic Sottor are back among the list of actors featured in the movie.

What was most disappointing for us was the inclusion of our confidently beautiful with a heart Miss Universe Pia Wurtzbach as among the celebrities included in a movie called The Revengers - an obvious comical spoof of The Avengers superhero movie from Marvel.

Many are saying that it is a wrong move for the beauty queen as it will surely degrade her status from an international icon to a low-class "pang-masa" title-holder. Just as how Manny "Pacman" has lost his credibility as a boxer when he joined politics, Pia may also become a laughing stock, not because the movie she joined is a comedy, but because he settled for poor quality appearances starting with the Vice Ganda and Daniel Padilla movie. 

Everyone knows the two mentioned actors are not really outstanding both in singing and acting. They are merely capitalizing on the stupidity of the masses who patronize below standard commercial and mainstream category shows with less intellectually challenging content.

But who knows, maybe Pia does really wants to stoop down to the level of the majority who do not know the difference between quality and money-making craps.

It is sad to say that many of us will never get to see the movie The Revengers because knowing the antics of the celebrities from their past movies, we know it will be nothing more but a joke. There has never been any good Vice Ganda movie where you'll consider it internationally competitive. They may have be great in the box office, but that is only because not too many of our fellow Filipinos know better as to which movie, or even TV show, will benefit them. Being a country plagued by entertainment features as top demands for content is not helping anybody in reality.

They may argue that these type of movies were meant for the kids during the Christmas season, but they keep forgetting that their continuous dumbing down of the masses will never lead to a progressive Philippines. The children are our future and if we continue to feed them with junk, their outputs will most probably turn into junk as well.

It is about time we appeal to the movie industry to stop allowing films, or songs, made by these sorry excuses for artists, to proliferate in the country. We should not replace our high standard requirements with blockbusters that do not contribute to real art.
