NAKAKAALIW talaga si Kris Aquino, dahil kabilin-bilinan niyang huwag kong isusulat at huwag din silang kukunan ng litrato nang makita ko sila ni Bimby sa Trinoma nitong Biyernes nang gabi para manood ng Kuwaresma—pero makalipas ang ilang oras ay nag-post na siya tungkol sa nasabing insidente.
Inunahan na niya siguro na magkaroon siya ng issue, dahil isinama niyang manood ang 12 years old na si Bimby sa Kuwaresma; R 13 kasi ang pelikula nina Sharon Cuneta at John Arcilla, sa direksiyon ni Erik Matti.Hindi namin nakilala si Kris nu’ng una, dahil ibang-iba ang hitsura niya nang huli namin siyang makita sa bahay nila. Napansin lang namin ang naghuhumiyaw na pink hoodie at rubber shoes niya, habang katabi ang isang matangkad na binatilyo.
Nasa isang tabi lang kasi silang mag-ina, kasama ang staff, at nakatingin sa ticket booth. Dahan-dahan kaming lumapit at binati si Kris: “Hello po, Madam. Hi, Bimb.”
“Please don’t write ‘coz Bimb is 12, alam mo na,” mahigpit na bilin ni Kris sa amin.
Nabanggit pa nga sa amin ni Kris na ngayong Linggo ang lipad niya papuntang Singapore para sa check-up niya, hintayin na lang daw namin ang isusulat niyang resulta, dahil ipo-post niya ito sa Instagram.
“Will post naman the complete details of whatever happens in SG,” sambit ni Kris.
Pero wala pang 24 oras ay ipinost na ni Kris ang tungkol sa panonood nila ni Bimby ng Kuwaresma, na in support daw sa Ate Sharon niya.
“You know how some people can get away with like literally big crimes & they get a free pass, and some people like yours truly attempt to bend the rules just a teeny tiny bit and automatically get caught?
“On purpose, it was just me, @rochelleahorro, @bincailuntayao, and Jane with no guards, really low key, to watch the 7:55 PM screening of Kuwaresma so we wouldn’t attract attention, since Bimb is so tall. Rochelle said hindi na mapapansin, and Bimb & I really wanted to watch @reallysharoncuneta’s movie.
“Well, we were caught and in fairness to the @iloveayalamallscinemas staff they were even apologetic that unfortunately we’re ‘famous’ and a lot of people know Bimb is only 12, and they didn’t want to get in trouble with the MTRCB.
“What we managed to watch (close to 30 minutes before we were asked to leave) was creepy, and the 3 main actors, Sharon, @johnarcilla, and the fresh discovery portraying ‘Luis’ were all completely immersed in their roles, and the sepia feel of the cinematography gave the movie a hard to distinguish time frame (was guessing the 1960s-70s). The musical scoring did a lot to transport us to the past.
“Soon enough this movie will be available via VOD and we’ll get to watch its completion then (promised Bimb I won’t watch it without him), which does bring up something worth discussing.
“Our not yet adult kids can watch movies and series (example Game of Thrones) with very mature themes, on their gadgets & maybe the classification of movies is something that needs re-evaluation, because access has become so much easier because of streaming (Netflix, Amazon, iFlix), prime cable (HBO, Showtime etc), and iTunes and Google Play.
“No excuses, mali kami for trying na ipuslit si Bimb, but the reality is in a few months time he’ll be able to watch Kuwaresma through Video on Demand. Excited lang kami to support sa theatrical run of @reallysharoncuneta’s 1st horror film.
“But this Mama has learned her lesson, R13 movies showing in cinemas will wait until April 19, 2020. #motherhood #lifelessons.”
