I just watched the movie Ninja Assassin and my last movie scene “syndrome” is the gushing blood scenes. Well, I was expecting that because after all, it’s a Ninja film. If you don’t have a strong stomach, then this movie is not the right one for you because it’s really, really gory. Imagine seeing flying swords and shurikens and lots of blood spilling everywhere.
The movie was fast paced. I did not even have much time to recover from the ouch of every action packed fight scenes.
Rain’s(Raizo) acting was pretty admirable. I think he took his ninja role seriously and he did a lot of nice martial arts moves.
Personally, I was not disappointed with the movie. Though im really not a fan of bloody action films, I am somewhat amazed because of the ninja assassins.

Datu Unsay Mayor Andal Ampatuan Jr., the son of Maguindanao Governor Andal Ampatuan Sr., has been identified as the head of the Monday's massacre of at least 57 people in Maguindanao province.
The crime that was said to root from the political conflict between two prominent and rich clan in Maguindao could lead or could have had caused a brewing Rido or what they call as "ubusan ng lahi (an armed hostilities between families and kinship groups)". This may just be the first part of the election violence that can heighten as the election nears and as the number of victims increases. The victims of the brutal and ruthless killings include civilians, journalists who were assigned to cover the filing of candidacy for governor of Mayor Esmael Mangudadatu, a former ally-turned-political rival of the Ampatuans.
Ampatuan is set to be detained in NBI prison and just a few minutes ago, arrived at the Fort Bonifacio through Philippine Air Force plane. He was escorted by two NBI guards, holding him on his shoulders but without any handcuffs. Earlier this afternoon, he was handed over to DOJ Justice Secretary Agnes Devanadera who brought him to Manila.

Krista Ranillo is Matt Ranilo's daughter. She is currently part of the project movie for Pacquiao which is going to be released this December.
As for Pacquaio's wife Jinkee, she seems really afftected. This was obvious during the Thanksgiving mass held right after the Pacman's clash with Miguel Cotto in Las Vegas, Nevada. Jinkee burst into tears as the priest shares the homily which was coincidentally about the importance of a family. It is apparent in the video footage that Pacquiao tried to comfort and console Jinkee but she turned away and faced her female friend instead.
As for Krista's side, her manager Arnold Vegafria dismissed the issue and said that Manny and Krista are just good friends.

It is expected that the moon will not be visible during the Leonid meteor shower so we will have a better view of the falling stars since it will be darker.
According to NASA, we will have a shower of 20-30 meteors an hour this year. Best time to watch it in USA is after 1:30 am EST.
Best viewing spot is predicted to be Asia. For more information, see the NASA Website which gives view spots for the Leonid Meteor Shower.

In this interview, he admits that he was hurt with Cotto's punches but he tried to hide it as much as possible. He considers this fight as one of his "hardest fight" and says that Cotto is tough. He also admits that before the fight, he kind of felt bad because Cotto kept on saying that he was bigger and stronger. According to Manny, "He has power but in this fight, you need to be smart. You need to have the proper mind condition."
Future plans after the fight?
Manny's going to have a concert promoting his new album. He's also going to have a movie (WaPackMan) which is a Metro Manila Filmfest entry for 2009 and will be released this December. He's also going to spend more time with his family.
The group, who rose to fame through the Sunday noontime show SOP, is composed of “Pinoy Pop Superstar” champions Jonalyn Viray, Aicelle Santos, and Maricris Garcia. They were personally picked by Pacquiao.
For the Puerto Rican champion, it was Ednita Nazario who sang Puerto Rico's national anthem. The United States anthem, "American Idol's" Ramiele Malubay sang "The Star-Spangled Banner."
Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao, 30, from the Philippines, fights to become the first boxer to ever win his seventh world title in different divisions. After the victory in six divisions: flyweight (112 pounds), super bantamweight (122 lb), featherweight (126 lb), super featherweight (130 lb), lightweight (135 lb) and light welterweight (140 lb), the southpaw finally got his seventh after defeating Cotto in their fight for the welterweight division.
The Puerto Rico pride Miguel Cotto, 29, who was rumored to have difficulty making the weight limit, ends the hearsay, proudly facing the opponent with his 145-pound weight. Cotto has 34 wins, 2 loss, and 27 Knockout Wins and is out to have his 2nd title defense.
There was also some reports that Miguel is some kind of a trash-talker calling Pacquiao’s trainer, Coach Roach, an a* hole during the weigh-in. According to Cotto, “Manny picked the wrong person, the wrong moment”. Now, it looks like it’s the other way around. Meanwhile, Pacquiao, remains in his carefree and humble composure, smiling during interviews.
I just finished watching the fight in the TV and it was a WOW! Manny was remarkable with nice body jobs . Cotto was incredible with his left hand punches. But Manny had the advantage with his breakneck speed and was able to make Cotto fall several times. Pacquiao, despite Cotto's walking away from him, never fails to hit him. By the end of the 12th round, Manny Pacquiao was declared the WBO Welterweight champion.
I was never a fan of boxing, but after watching this game, I started to appreciate what these two warriors are fighting for.
