Shanti Dope’s song Amatz has made it to the MCU via The Falcon and the Winter Soldier Episode 3

Wazzup Pilipinas!

Shanti Dope’s song “Amatz” plays during a scene in The Falcon and the Winter Soldier.

As our heroes enter Madripoor, Shanti's song started playing. Pinoy pride livering from there on.  

Is this the same song na pinapa-ban ng mga pulis or imbento lang ako?

Shanti: 1


Yung mas na a-acknowledge pa ng ibang bansa yung kanta ng PINOY kesa sa kapwa PINOY. Putcha nakaka tuwa, lupet mo Shanti.

Also I noticed during the credits that a picture of Madripoor can be seen with the words "Isang Mundo, Isang Tao." (The slogan of the Flag-Smashers in Filipino).

This only mean Madripoor could be based on Filipino Culture knowing Madripoor in the comics is based on an Asian community?

Though, I still think SEA nations in general and not just the philippines knowing that madripoor is a southeast asian island, like a fictional capital of SEA.

I just saw the map in the comics, and the spot where the island is located is like the spot where our country sits. Plus based from it's history, it was stated that it was once ruled by Japan. 

Winter Soldier said Madripoor is an island in the Indonesian archipelago, but they played a Filipino rap song to set the tone of the place. Not complaining, just saying. 

The major languages are English, French, and Filipino according to the Marvel database fandom wiki.

Well, geography wise. There is something wrong with it, but now we seeing and hearing Filipino Languages being used for Madripoor seems promising.

I can't wait for the MCU and networks to showcase some of marvel's SEA characters. Especially our very own. 

Damn lots of Filipino culture as plot points in a lot of shows im watching. Mark and Amber eating halo-halo in Invincible and now Shanti Dope. 

I wonder how PH feels about Shanti Dope’s Amatz now after hearing it on #TheFalconAndTheWinterSoldier when not too long ago the government banned it from any media airplay.

Regé-Jean Page Not Returning for Bridgerton Season 2: 'The Ride of a Lifetime'​

Wazzup Pilipinas!?

Netflix and Shondaland announced on Friday that star Regé-Jean Page
will not appear of Season 2.

"Pleasure and a privilege! An honour to be a member of the family - on and off screen, cast, crew and incredible fans - the love is real and will just keep growing." - Regé-Jean Page

What? Is this some sort of cruel late April Fool's prank our mischievous Lady Whistledown has engineered?

Needless to say, without the Duke there is simply no Bridgerton. 

“Bridgerton” fans, the time has come to bid adieu to Simon Basset, the Duke of Hastings.

No more Duke of Hastings? We’re officially heartbroken.

There better be a real good reason for Regé-Jean Page not coming back to Bridgerton! This news really ruined my morning!

I only watched because of him. He was integral to the whole series. So his wife should not appear...see I have forgotten her name.

Now I’m worried about Bridgerton...! I would definitely miss the poise & beauty of the Duke.

No more Netflix for me!  This is just too much! Yes we know it is about Anthony but they could have weaved his fine self into the story somehow!

I mean the second season is entirely focused on a different character and romance so..

It's Anthony Bridgerton's time to shine. You just gotta deal with it.

Man, Bridgerton better start hiring hot people right away cuz those 5 whites boys with sideburns who all look the same aren’t gonna do it.

Not angry like most of the #Bridgerton fans...just a little was inevitable but... it happened so fast.

If you’ve read the books, you’d have known this. I’ve been expecting this to happen.

It makes perfect sense to me that Regé-Jean Page is leaving become one of the biggest stars on the planet in the next five years.

I was floored by his SNL appearance. He was flawless. He's so clearly a gigantic movie star! Let it happen. It just won’t be the same without the Duke! 

We flew too close to the sun on this one... We chiseled a Black Duke De La Horny that was, in fact, too horny to last. Smh.

I get it, Rege Jean Page is leaving Bridgerton so he has have more time to prepare taking over the role of James Bond. I can’t wait for the official announcement.

Also the second book focuses on someone else, so.

Season 2 of Bridgerton's gonna be real confusing for those of us who are here for the eye candy and who can't tell the three white Bridgerton dudes apart.

The show is based off of a series of 8 books by Julia Quinn and each book focuses on 1 of the 8 Bridgerton siblings. The second book is about Anthony, Daphne’s brother.

For anyone not more familiar with #Bridgerton, each book has a different Bridgerton sibling as the central character. Book (and series) one was all about Daphne. Book two is Anthony. Book three is Benedict. I haven’t read beyond that. But trust me, there’s still fun to be had. 

The book 2 of the #Bridgerton series is The Viscount Who Loved Me--Anthony's book. In the source material, Simon and Daphne barely made an appearance. It's Kate Sheffield's time to shine!

But not even a cameo or two in season 2?!! You can still be a big star in a little pond and contribute to something that thrust him into the spotlight and introduced us to his talent... just saying. I’m happy for him but I hope he stays humble.

Still sad, I'll miss his character in the coming stories. He's got fun parts in the coming books/seasons.

Rege-Jean recounts early conversations with Shondaland about his role on Bridgerton: “It’s a one-season arc. It’s going to have a beginning, middle, end – give us a year.” 

"The audience knows the arc completes. ... You can tie people in emotional knots because they have that reassurance that we’re going to come out and we’re going to have the marriage and the baby.” 

We've been bamboozled! The writers and casting knew that they could reel us into Bridgerton by having Regé-Jean Page just be fine AF on the screen. Now he's not gonna be in Season 2. What was the point of getting attached. We're upset!

Now that there’s so much negativity around Bridgerton, does that mean that they will have to start to give us all constant good news and amazing content to keep people excited? 

Dearest Readers, to mark the sad occasion of Regé-Jean Page’s exit from #Bridgerton - I’m starting a thread honoring all of the men whose make-or-break charisma shipwrecked their respective shows. Kicking it off with Travis Fimmel from Vikings. 

On the other hand, this isn’t the end!! the show still be there and we’ve plenty of characters to be entertained with. 

As sad as I am that there’ll be no Simon in season two I’m still just holding out hope for best buds Colin/Kate in Pall Mall.

#TheFalconAndTheWinterSoldier: Halfway through the first season

Wazzup Pilipinas?!

#TheFalconAndTheWinterSoldier Episode 3 is a blast. Continually impressed by the action Kari Skogland directs and the surprises this show manages to throw at you. Terrifically written dialogue, the acting is fun to watch, and this cast has a brilliant dynamic together.

Only because of Zemo dancing this show deserves an Emmy... Falcon struggling with finances, Sharon running from US government, Bucky dealing with PTSD while Baron Zemo was vibing at the club.

Zemo being sugar daddy to Sam and Bucky, sponsoring their outfits, travels in private jet and cool cars.

Episode 3 of #TheFalconAndTheWinterSoldier was just WOW. I’m speechless. The intensity and surprises have definitely been dialed way up. 

Madripoor has such an aesthetic look & feel as well as includes the best cinematography in the show so far.

This nostalgic gem though made me laugh out loud.

Bucky: “Can you move your seat up?”
Sam: NO

2023 or 2024
Sam: “Your not gonna move your seat up”
Bucky: NO

It's the perfect mix of an action film, and indie mumblecore, and a call out to society! Daniel Bruhl and Emily Van Camp's additions and acting? SO GOOD! 

Everybody is talking about sugar daddy Zemo, but what about sugar mommy Sharon? The way Sharon Carter whooped those men's asses. She's alone and she defeated that many. Sharon Carter is one the strongest woman in the MCU. She needs to be more appreciated.

Let's talk about how Sharon gave her whole life for the Avengers just for them to forget about her. Sharon’s fight scene at the shipyard went so hard, need a Disney+ show of her life in Madripoor asap Marvel.

Yes, Sharon. Sam Wilson is definitely better off without a shirt. I’m really starting to like her. She better not be a love interest for either of them though. I’ll be so annoyed. But nobody told her to five finger discount that shield. Miss me with that.

Sharon f*ckin Carter is back and kicking asses. Yes, go off queen.

Sebastian stans ability to act with his eyes is unmatched! The fact that Bucky is a nerd makes me love him even more. No one could’ve played a better Bucky Barnes. For a split second whilst Zemo said the trigger words I thought Bucky would turn into the Winter Soldier again lmao.

We actually get Bucky fighting unlike in the movies where he was just shooting bullets. remember that before Hydra, bucky taught steve how to fight and he was a 3-time YMCA welterweight champion.

How did the notebook come to be in Bucky's possession? Did he pilfer it from Steve's effects or did Steve pass it along before he left Wakanda so Bucky could catch up or like...

I'm never getting over this.

Sebastian Stan is extraordinary!! He reconfirms himself as one of the best characters in the MCU.

I think we can all agree that Anthony Mackie as Sam Wilson looks so good and for what? If Steve was America's ass, Sam is America's titties. Let's also talk about how fucking clean Sam looked in the suit!!!

I’m never shutting up about Sam in a suit. He looks so sexy.

The way Sam checks on Bucky like when he had to impersonate the Winter Soldier or when Bucky wanted to “go for a walk” makes me so soft. Steve could never have chosen someone better and more trusted than Sam to check on Bucky.

Not the team up we expected but the team up we needed. I can’t get ever how good Sam and Bucky looked in this episode. Now why did everyone drip so hard this episode?!

This series is a matter of perspective on who is good or bad. All the characters are fighting for a cause/belief and it's up to your own morals and values to decide which side you are on.

Where the villains are more likeable than John Walker. The most relatable moment was when John Walker threatened a guy and screamed "Do you know who I am?!" and was answered back with “Yes, I do and I don’t care.” It was total badass. The white privilege in that new Cap is astronomical.

A Filipino song “AMATS” by SHANTI DOPE was also featured here. When I heard it I was shooked then I screamed so loud and vibing to that song while watching.

Lupet! Nagulat ako nung nag play.

What a moment. Shanti Dope is now MCU Canon.

"Isang mundo, isang tao."

"One world, one people." Flagsmashers in Madripoor too, it seems. Or maybe there was a Filipino among Karli's group already and I haven't noticed yet.

Congrats @mimiyuuuh for making it on disney+ singing Amatz.

I am so proud filo here.

Also, when Ayo showed up and the Wakanda Dora Milaje music played. I was like ....

Loving it.

For the 100th time, the episodes just keeps getting better! So happy to see my boi Zemo back in action. He’s awesome in this episode. Bucky, Sam & Zemo is the trio I didn’t know I need until now lol.

#TheFalconAndTheWinterSoldier is honestly one of the best entries in the MCU and it’s only half way over. I mean there’s just so much compelling shit every week. It’s just so damn good man.

This episode was amazing! There was a lot of action scenes and a lot of twist and turns but I got to say the ending surprised me. Only 3 more episodes left. I can’t wait.

Lugaw is Essential, Lechon is Not

Wazzup Pilipinas!

A Duterte appointee, DILG Epimaco Sending III was part of the movement to impeach VP Leni Robredo but failed to do so.  

More of trolling lang talaga ung bashers ng VP. Wala atang enough signs from them para sa impeachment. Ang bobobo talaga ng mga alipores ni Mang Kanor. Trying hard masyado. Papansin pa. Kailangang maglangis sa poon.

He wanted his face plastered all over soc med and he got it by his “si lugaw”play on words wc is actually taking a potshot at VP Leni. He got enough mileage now. Stahp!

Only in this admin that a blatant insult and attack to the second highest officer of the country is tolerated. Unbelievable. Totally unacceptable. 

Should we not ever give them kahit negative publicity with pics, kahit memes... total snub dapat?? Unfortunately, the media is also after the views.

Ganyang uri ng mga appointee ang naka upo sa gobyerno natin. Kaya naman pala halos kapareho ni Mang Kanor eh. Mga Kanal magsisagot, pa-burak ang mga kaisipan, mga walang modo at respeto. Yung level nang pag iisip Mang Kanor na Mang Kanor. Kaya eto tayo ngayon.

Duterte et al think that by discrediting VP Leni would solve the crisis.

By doing that they just making themselves look MORE incompetent! 

I find it funny everytime people say, “walang pag-asa si Leni, she’s so unpopular.” Guurl, she won the vice presidency w/ 14.4 million votes & I’m sure more votes will be added as we’ve seen how efficient she is. To hell with commissioned surveys! And yes to united opposition!

When they created Leni Lugaw to bring the VP down and shame her but it’s actually biting their faces so bad. Ang sakit no?   

What do VP Leni and lugaw have in common?

They're both essential. 

#LugawIsEssential #LetLeniLead #LeniIsEssential #LechonIsNotEssential

From Manila Bay Sands to Manila Bay Rocks

Wazzup Pilipinas!

If you ever stop to think why you're getting depressed again this season, the answer is simple. Naubos na ang dolomite sa Manila Bay.

Wala na yung dolomite sa manila bay, paano na yung "mental health" namin? From Manila Bay Sands to Manila Bay Rocks na ngayon.

The Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR)  Benny Antiporda  - Manila Bay Sands dolomite beach saga continues.

So more & more people are going hungry. And then I remembered the 300 Million pesos our government spent on the Manila Bay Dolomite beach that didn't even make it a year. How many people could've been fed with all that money? Heartless. Not stupid. The government is heartless.

Still the best metaphor for the Duterte government's efforts during the pandemic – malaking gastos sa tax payer, walang science, at walang silbi.

Refilling Manila Bay with dolomite, and now rocks (saan naman galing itong mga bago) is pretty much like our government’s response to the pandemic - a FAILURE.

Did you also know that DENR approved the cutting of hundreds of mangroves in Manila Bay for the San Miguel Aerocity?

Dobleng kapalpakan. Hindi nakakagulat sa isang gobyernong bobo at inutil.

#Yumingina: Yumi Garcia revealed as the mistress of King Badger

Wazzup Pilipinas!

Wow talaga.. I'm speechless.. idk if it's true pero tang*na why?.. She seemed so innocent to me before.. 

I didn't expect she would be low as this. I used to admire her. Sobra! Her soft features, innocent eyes, and lovely smiles. I really didn't expect this to happen. 

Why Beb? Mukha lang innocent pero puta nasa puki yata utak. There's always a wild side to an innocent face. How can you sleep at night knowing you're a mistress?

To this girl:

Babae ka din sana bago mo pinasok yung ganyang bagay nagisip ka muna kung may babae ding kagaya mong masasaktan. Alam mo palang may asawa, itinuloy mo pa.

May itsura ka naman, mayaman ka naman, so bakit pinangarap mo maging kabet?

Ngayon harapin mo lahat ng hates dahil deserve mo naman.

I really don't know where do these mistresses have this confidence and audacity to be proud for the bullshit they made for people like Jelai Andres and the many other wives out there. 

How does it feel to be the reason why two people broke up? Is it fulfilling? hope you won't experience the same thing you did, girl. Remember, karma is a bitch.

Check out Christine Castro's FB post. Mainit init pa.

And to those men who doesn't value their wife's worth, you guys are fucking stupid!! Does this make your image look good? Does this strengthen your egos? putangina niyong lahat

We won't tolerate this kind of kabobohan from you Yumi. Ano patapangan lang to eh.

Bakit parang walang mga pinagsamahan kung totoo man po o hindi bakit kailangang mag tweet about sa mga ganoon? Bakit hindi ninyo na lang po pagsabihan/icomfort ninyo. Sa pagkakaalam ko kasi ang tunay na kaibigan nandiyan through ups and downs.

Bakit nawawala na kayo dahil sa mga nalalaman ninyo at mga pinaniniwalaan ninyo? Why naman ganoon? SHE NEEDS YOUR HELP!!

Dahil ayaw nilang madamay sa katangahan ni Yumi?

Ang totoong kaibigan hindi kinukunsinti ang mali. Kung tumalikod man ang iba niyang kaibigan sa kanya, dahil sa kanya yun. Kasi mali naman talaga siya. Ano yun kabet na nga siya tapos susuportahan pa dapat ng mga kaibigan?

Hindi dapat tinotolerate ang mali. Kung kaibigan nila yun, pagsabihan nila yes pero kung ayaw makinig may choice sila to stay friends with her or not.

Kung ikaw kaya yung nasa desisyon? Malamang gagawa din kayo ng eksena. Alam ninyo ng mali, doon pa din kayo?

Mali naman kasi siya. Huwag ninyo ipagtanggol ang mali. Nagmumukha lang kayong tanga.

Mas mali rin ang pangungunsinti sa kaibigan kahit alam niyo ng mali susuportahan niyo padin? Siya na nga nakasira ng pamilya, siya pa ipagtatanggol ninyo.

I think we must give the same bullshit to Jon Gutierrez too like we did to Yumi Garcia.

Idk where Jon got the audacity to cheat tapos the mistress is 17 year old pa, a minor. 

WHAT? Jon Gutierrez being impatient yet he is the reason why his wife can't fully trust him. Makapal rin mukha mo no. Ikaw pa nga nanloko and you have the audacity to complain that Jelai Andres is still suspicious & not sure about you. Tsk, umaayos yang tite mong juts.

And, Yumi's fans please stop playing blind. Evidences are everywhere. Defending a mistress, just means you're one of the accomplices too.

DILG USec Epimaco Densing III is non-essential

Wazzup Pilipinas!

Dense is an adjective. But in the Philippines, someone so actively, gratuitously obtuse has managed to turn it into a verb in the present progressive tense. Densing.

Like that Usec.

Proving once again that #LugawIsEssential. And so much better than just sabaw.

If you watch the video, you know very well who he means with "si lugaw".

But why the fuck would you joke about that incident like that for some lousy political shots.

You're a f'ng DILG Usec. In the first place, you shouldn't be playing politics a lot.

Alam mo, mainit ulo namin. Wag ka na dumagdag Epimaco Densing III. Tangina.

 USEC Densing, with all due respect, I wanna ask "NAKAKATAWA YORN?" Gosh.

Nyare sa Gov't official dito?

Lower? Lower!  

Si Usec Dending III ba essential pa ang service? Parang with this kind of statement, non-essential!

This attempt to throw shade is so lame. It just makes all your kapalpakans more glaring. @DILGPhilippines, what has this USEC done that is even close enough to what Robredo has done, and continues to do?

Sumisipsip, sobrang epal these days, gusto yatang maging DILG Secretary, kapal ng fez!

Not this USec spewing bull and creating a different (and irrelevant) narrative about lugaw. He thinks he said something witty but it's more like showing how yucky his personality is.

Ang “non-essential” ay yung tanod at iba pang mga tulad nya na hindi alam kung paano ipatupad ng tama ang mga batas at patakaran.

The incident might be petty and funny - pero real reflection of what’s really happening whenever someone without knowledge of what he/she is doing was given the responsibility to lead. We need to kick out both that Baranggay tanod and DILG USec before they breed more of peeps like them.

Lord, yung galit ko. The audacity to make demeaning jokes. READ THE ROOM, USEC, PEOPLE ARE DYING.

Come to think of it, it's quite providential why they're linking the VP Leni as lugaw- for the lowly lugaw as food is essential for life - gives sustenance, nutrients and minerals ... 

Sorry to burst your bubble but... In these times of crisis and government incompetence #LugawIsEssential

#Lugaw is essential in this pandemic.

Lechon is not! 


#GodzillaVsKong: Long live the God and King of the Monsterverse

Wazzup Pilipinas!?

A rematch 59 years in the making.
King Kong Vs Godzilla (1962)/ Godzilla Vs Kong (2021). 

In the epic battle of Godzilla vs. Kong, who will come out on top? Let the clash of the century commence! 

Godzilla vs. Kong is now playing in theaters and streaming exclusively on HBO Max. 

#GodzillaVsKong was awesome! Straight to the point , great visuals and simple story. I won’t give out any spoilers except one, no Gamera.

#GodzillaVsKong has amazing visuals! If it isn’t nominated for an Oscar for VFX, then I don’t know what they consider. 3D was amazing as well. 

Godzilla vs. Kong was pure fire. Sad that the series has to end, maybe some day it will continue. MG will always be my favorite, it was badass to see him brought into this universe. This movie is in my top 2 Godzilla films. Well fucking done.

If there's a more visually-insane franchise than #GodzillaVsKong, we'll eat our shoes.  

The first 45 mins is human snooze fest.
Then #GodzillaVsKong  gives you EVERYTHING you were looking for. Make sure your popcorn is popped, the sound is bumping and buckle up! This thing comes roaring back!  

#GodzillaVsKong director Adam Wingard says future MonsterVerse films should have even fewer humans

People are ready for it - to see no people coz the monsters rule!

Everyone’s working. Literally. They can barely find time to film due to scheduling conflicts.

I wish there wasn’t any humans in the movie. Every time it switched to Millie's group, I rolled my eyes.

I just want to know about Hank and Gunpei's story in the skull island. Pretty disappointing they didn't put Hank in. Though, he’d be around 100 years old. Skull Island took place in the 70s.

The little girl was the best. Other than that rest of them were forgettable.

I felt kind of bored when I was watching through the first hour of the movie because I didn’t care to much for them in the beginning. Once I found out why Godzilla was attacking people I found there parts to be better. I loved the movie none the less.

I feel like the group breaking into Apex was unnecessary honestly. They do uncover MechaGodzilla but I think more focus could have been on the girl and Kong.

John C. Reilly was literally the best part from Kong Skull island. He’s quite clearly the heart of the film.

In #GodzillaVsKong, two of the biggest beasts in the monsterverse clash in the most destructive battle yet!  TTF LA collaborated with the filmmakers to help fuel the development and evolution of key sequences through early-phase #visualization.

Godzilla vs. Kong was insane! Human characters and their stories were ok overall, but the fights throughout the film are what we are all here to see lol! These are the best fight scenes we have seen in the Monsterverse so far! 

The monster battles were fucking sick and definitely the best in the franchise. I’ll take my dope monster fights where I can get them.

It’s a great action flick. The monster fights in this movie are the best animated ones hands down. It feels like Legendary perfected animating their giant monster fights.  

One of my favorite parts of #GodzillaVsKong is how much it feels tailor-made to be adapted into a Universal theme park ride. It’s like they plan to put you in a HEAV seat and reuse shots from the movie on a big 4D screen.

#GodzillaVsKong without doubt the best action packed thrill ride movie of the year!!
Hats off to the whole team who brought us this mega entertaining blockbuster! Only wish I could have seen it in #IMAX.

 #GodzillaVsKong  “Is perhaps the most satisfying blockbuster film out of this franchise because it knows you as a viewer demand nothing more than NOSTALGIA-FUELED CGI SPECTACLE” 

Rate #GodzillaVsKong? I rate it a 10/10! It was the rematch we've been waiting for and it was done justice!
