DTI creates Marahuyo, a luxe Filipino fashion brand for global buyers Several names have been floated around as Guiao’s replacement including the likes of Tab Baldwin, Tim Cone, Ryan Gregorio, and Jimmy Alapag.Alapag has been in the program the longest since he played in the earliest iterations of the team in the late 2000s and was also a part of the coaching staff during his post-playing days.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGreatest ever?SPORTSBecoming his own manSPORTSFormer PBA import Anthony Grundy passes away at 40Alapag, who’s now a member of the Fiba Players’ Commission and an assistant coach with San Miguel, said he’d be ready to replace Guiao if he’s given the chance to call the shots for Gilas.“I would be ready,” said Alapag Tuesday at Tap Seac Multisport Pavilion here during the press conference for the East Asia Super League: The Terrific 12. “It’s been very humbling and I feel very honored that people have thrown my name into consideration.” Alapag won three medals, two silvers and a bronze with Gilas and his most iconic stint was the 2013 Fiba Asia Championship in Manila where the team’s second-place finish booked them a slot to the 2014 Fiba World Cup in Greece.It was in Greece that Alapag captained Gilas to a 1-4 finish in the tournament with their lone win being an 81-79 victory over Senegal.Alapag, though, knows the gravity of his potential employment since he doesn’t have control over his fate.“It’s a unique opportunity but it also comes with a huge responsibility,” said Alapag. “We all know how passionate we are for the game of basketball. Obviously I wouldn’t go into that position by myself.”“Whoever is the future coach would need help going forward especially we’re hosting the 2023 World Cup.”ADVERTISEMENT Senate panel ready to craft report on ‘dissolution of marriage’ PLAY LIST 01:53Senate panel ready to craft report on ‘dissolution of marriage’00:50Trending Articles01:16Go goads Robredo to take ICAD post: ‘Tignan natin kung makakatulog ka pa’02:11Makabayan bloc defends protesting workers, tells Año to ‘shut up’03:07PH billiards team upbeat about gold medal chances in SEA Games01:38‘Bato’ to be ‘most effective’ CHR head?

‘Truly epic feel'”Director Andy Muschietti weaves the young & adult Losers together super well, giving IT 2 a truly epic feel,” writes Perri Nemiroff of Collider. #ITChapterTwo is probably scarier than chapter one – more Pennywise imagery to haunt your dreams. But it also loses a lot of charm in the shift in focus from the coming of age to the now adult characters. At nearly 3 hours it feels long.— Peter Sciretta (@slashfilm) August 21, 2019 For the most part I liked IT CHAPTER TWO. First half (of this pretty long movie!) is great. And the new adult cast is stellar. Second half isn’t as tight. And overall Chapter Two isn’t as tight as the first movie.— Mike Ryan (@mikeryan) August 21, 2019 0 IT Chapter 2: Everything to know He’s coming. New Line Cinema Stephen King has a lot to answer for. He’s ruined the reputation of vintage cars (Christine), Saint Bernard dogs (Cujo) and snowy hideaways (The Shining). But he’s really destroyed the good name of clowns, as Pennywise from It might be one of the most nightmarish horror creations ever.It Chapter 2 follows up on 2017’s critically acclaimed It, and both are based on King’s 1,100-page, 1986 best seller. It Chapter 2 recasts the Losers’ Club with adult actors, and continues the plot 27 years after the first film. The film opens Sept. 5 in Australia and Sept. 6 in the US and UK, but social media reactions started to creep out on Tuesday. Here’s a look at what some early viewers are saying.’Probably scarier,’ but longPeter Sciretta of Slashfilm is calling this second film “probably scarier than chapter one — more Pennywise imagery to haunt your dreams.” But he also found it less charming than the first, and overlong. TV and Movies Post a comment #ItChapterTwo is a giant budget, studio-backed horror movie that’s also a fairly serious actors showcase/ensemble, with occasional flashes of brilliant imagery (like all the balloons cascading under the bridge). It’ll make more money than Warner Bros knows what to do with. pic.twitter.com/Noscq1X1j1— Drew Taylor (@DrewTailored) August 21, 2019 10 Photos ‘First half is great’Mike Ryan of Uproxx had a definite preference for the first part of the film, and loved the new adult cast. Share your voice #ITChapter2 isn’t as refined as the first, but it’s still an excellent ensemble piece, oozing with heart & packed with extremely well-crafted set pieces. Muschietti weaves the young & adult Losers together super well, giving IT 2 a truly epic feel.

First movie is a tough act to follow. TWO is gruesome, strange but rarely scary. Nails important aspects from the book, but feels overlong. Cast is aces, though, & Bill Hader SHOULD be in Oscar convo. pic.twitter.com/1KUZk5TXA1— Sean O’Connell (@Sean_OConnell) August 21, 2019 Cha-ching!”It’ll make more money than Warner Bros knows what to do with,” writes Drew Taylor of Moviefone. Oh, we think they’ll find a way to use the cash. ‘Bill Hader steals it’Lots more love for Hader’s part, this time from Fandango’s Erik Davis. Tags ‘Gruesome, strange but rarely scary’Sean O’Connell of CinemaBlend liked but didn’t love the film, yet is one of many critics raving about the performance of Bill Hader as Richie Tozier. Now playing: Watch this: #ITChapterTwo is a terrific companion to #ITChapterOne. Similar vibes, great ensemble chemistry w/ a nice mix of humor and horror. Part 2 plays heavier in tone, dealing w/ defeating the burden of childhood trauma, & I definitely teared up at the very end.
