Dockers Signature On-The-Go: Fashion with a function  

With great fashion comes great productivity. 

In the same way that “you are what you eat,” what you wear also speaks so much about you and your body of work. Dressing up sharply in the workplace does not only make you look smart and respected in the eyes of your colleagues, but also make you feel more confident about yourself and what you are capable of.

 Dockers Signature Khaki highlights a fashion style that will make you feel good.

There is more to fashion than looking good, and that is feeling good. To look aesthetically presentable is one thing, but to feel better about the way you carry yourself is totally another. A true, classy fashion sense transcends from the outside to the more essential components inside.

With Dockers’ Signature On-The-Go, fashion comes with a function. Wearing simple yet smart-looking Dockers pants in the office makes a modern gentleman feel more comfortable about himself and his craft, which makes one a more efficient worker. Feeling good is the first step to better productivity.

 Wearing simple yet smart-looking Dockers pants in the office or to a meeting will make you feel more comfortable and confident with your work.

In fact, several studies have showed that dressing properly translates to ease, comfort, and productivity in a specific environment. Thus, wearing Dockers On-The-Go allows the busy guy to imbibe the qualities that make the signature pants and the Dockers brand stand out over the others—versatility, presentability, and durability.

You are what you wear, and you can't afford to sacrifice a day's worth of effort and productivity just because you don't feel good about yourself and what you are wearing. With Dockers, you are clad with just the right amount of confidence and excellence that will carry you past through the daily grind. 

 Wearing simple yet smart-looking Dockers pants in the office or to a meeting will make you feel more comfortable and confident with your work.

That is what Dockers has been advocating ever since—a laid-back and effortless style and confidence stitched together by the right fit, fabric, design. And there's no better product to embody these ideals than the Signature On-The-Go, because as in any matter of style, excellence doesn't have to try so hard. 

But while Dockers maintains its signature look that made it the leading khaki brand, it does not stop reinventing styles tailor-fitted for the changing needs of the modern, on-the-go man. After introducing “Casual Friday” almost 30 years ago, Dockers has never been passive in incorporating innovation to its staples, making sure that “what to wear” does not add up more to the worries of the on-the-go guy.

 Dockers Signature On-The-Go is a laid-back and effortless style and confidence stitched together by the right fit, fabric, design.

With the Signature On-The-Go, Dockers values quality over quantity as it believes that a bulk of clothes are not necessary for a stylish look—just the right pieces mixed and matched together.

This gives the modern gentleman the opportunity to explore available choices on what he thinks is best for him for the day. 

 Dockers values quality over quantity as it believes that a bulk of clothes are not necessary for a stylish look.

Beating style monotony with continued innovation and refined aesthetics, Dockers continues to change the way people carry themselves out there in a competitive world by prioritizing wearability and function. Maximizing one's wardrobe options, after all, has always been more efficient than bulk-buying.

Dockers and its signature On-The-Go wants the modern men to be the best versions of themselves wherever they go and whatever they do, without having to stress over the appropriate outfit.

You are what you wear. And with Dockers, you wear nothing but effortless confidence that comes with free-flowing productivity.

“TERMINATOR GENISYS” Goes Off on Divergent Timeline

Paramount Pictures and Skydance Productions present “Terminator Genisys,” starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jason Clarke, Emilia Clarke, Jai Courtney, J.K. Simmons Matthew Smith, and Byung-hun Lee. The film is directed by Alan Taylor, written by Laeta Kalogridis & Patrick Lussier and produced by David Ellison and Dana Goldberg.

According to producer David Ellison, “’Terminator Genisys’ is not a remake, it’s not a reboot, it’s not a sequel—it’s really a reimagining based on the original James Cameron source material. Viewers don’t have to be familiar with any of the previous films at all—this is definitely a stand-alone. Exploiting the inherent nature of time travel, we go off on a divergent timeline to take these characters that audiences and I grew up with in a completely new direction.”

In the film, when John Connor (Jason Clarke), leader of the human resistance, sends Sgt. Kyle Reese (Courtney) back to 1984 to protect Sarah Connor (Emilia Clarke) and safeguard the future, an unexpected turn of events creates a fractured timeline. Now, Sgt. Reese finds himself in a new and unfamiliar version of the past, where he is faced with unlikely allies, including a new T-800 terminator, the Guardian (Schwarzenegger), dangerous new enemies, and an unexpected new mission: To reset the future…

To begin the telling of “Terminator Genisys,” filmmakers open the movie with the final assault of the remaining humans on the machines, led by John Connor and Kyle Reese, in what could be the twilight of mankind. Producer Dana Goldberg explains, “We open with Kyle Reese as a child, talking about what had happened before he was born—that humans beings basically got complacent and allowed machines to take over the world. Eventually, the machines decided that humans were a threat, seizing control of missile defense systems and wiping out three-billion people. That was Judgment Day.”

In this film’s current day, 2029, the resistance rallies, and believe they have conquered Skynet, only to discover that the machines have launched their version of a fail-safe—the first tactical time displacement weapon, sending a Terminator back in time to kill Sarah Connor, John’s mother, before she has a chance to conceive and give birth to the future leader of the human resistance.

Fans will no doubt recognize the Terminator’s arrival in the Los Angeles of 1984, but will also soon realize that this story launches into new, splintered directions.

Producer David Ellison notes, “The 1984 that our characters travel back to has been altered since the original movie—events have transpired that have driven it in a completely different direction. Also those films were always set in present day, not in the future, not in the past. Ours bends that set-up. And so, through a series of events, our characters find themselves traveling forward to 2017 in an attempt to stop Judgment Day from ever happening.”

Goldberg acknowledges, “We wanted to be incredibly respectful to the characters Gale [Anne Hurd] and James Cameron created. So we finally arrived at the place of whatever timeline you’re talking about, when you’re talking about the Terminator world, there’s always going to be a Sarah Connor, a Kyle Reese, a John Connor, a Terminator—they just might not be the identical people they were in the prior films. That’s the attitude we started and stayed with going into the development of the script. They are all here…just not exactly the people that have been represented in films previously.”

Filmmakers did get to delve into their inner sci-fi geeks, with a fairly meticulous recreation of the initial sequence of Kyle Reese landing in 1984, down to the homeless man in the alley and the dog. But along with the familiar is a T-1000—a huge signal of all expectations being blown sky high.

Per Goldberg, “Reese goes back as he did before, being told that Sarah Connor is a fairly helpless woman working as a waitress—she’ll have no idea what you’re talking about, but you’ll need to save her, even though she doesn’t believe. Then, not only is he greeted by a Terminator, which completely surprises and confuses him, but then Sarah arrives in a huge fashion, and it’s her character that has the famous line, ‘Come with me if you want to live.’”

  Opening across the Philippines on July 01, “Terminator Genisys” is distributed by United International Pictures through Columbia Pictures.

Dinosaur Park comes to life anew in “JURASSIC WORLD”

Can you imagine what a dinosaur looks like, moves like or sounds like without thinking of “Jurassic Park?”

It isn’t just a movie. It’s a memory shared by all of us.

It defined the colossal summer blockbuster, a moviegoing event of a lifetime that provided us some of the most lasting, iconic sights and sounds of cinema.

It gave you the feeling that the first day of summer had arrived.

It pioneered advancements in visual effects that made you believe dinosaurs roamed the Earth again.

Mixing plausible science with breathtaking imagination, it told a cautionary tale about what could result from messing with the natural order.

It left your eyes wide, your jaw open and your heart racing.

Jurassic Park answered the question of how much story, how much fun and how much spectacle could fit into one perfect summer motion picture.

Now, the story of Steven Spielberg’s original comes full circle as the park that was only a promise comes to life.

Welcome to “Jurassic World.” The new film is directed by Colin Trevorrow (“Safety Not Guaranteed”) who was handpicked by Spielberg to take the Jurassic mantle.

Twenty-two years ago, Dr. John Hammond had a dream: a theme park where visitors from all over the world could experience the thrill and awe of witnessing actual dinosaurs.
Now, his dream has finally become a reality.

Welcome to Jurassic World, a fully operational luxury resort where tens of thousands of guests explore the wonder and brilliance of Earth’s most magnificent living prehistoric marvels and interact up close with them every day.

Situated on an island off the coast of Costa Rica and constructed around a bustling Main Street, Jurassic World is a state-of-the-art wonder full of astonishing attractions. Kids ride gentle mini Triceratops in the petting zoo, crowds cheer as the aquatic Mosasaurus leaps from a performance pool to snatch a great white shark dangled as a snack, and families gaze with fascination as dinosaurs of every shape and size roam again, all displayed and safely contained for the guests’ amusement.

Overseeing every corner of Jurassic World is driven careerist Claire (Bryce Dallas Howard), who finds herself unexpectedly saddled with the arrival of her nephews, Zach, 16 (Nick Robinson), and Gray, 11 (Ty Simpkins). Although they’ve been shipped off by their mom, Karen (Judy Greer), to spend a few days at Jurassic World, Claire has no time for the distraction of two visiting kids and loads them down with passes, sending them off to explore the park.

The park’s miraculous animals are created by Dr. Henry Wu (BD Wong), a geneticist who once worked for InGen, the company behind Hammond’s first park, and now for the larger-than-life billionaire benefactor of Jurassic World, Simon Masrani (Irrfan Khan). Because the commercial prosperity of the park demands new innovations every year to keep guests returning, Dr. Wu is pushed beyond the bounds of ethical science, manipulating genetics to engineer a genetically modified dinosaur that never walked the Earth before, and whose abilities remain undiscovered.

The most secretive new breed developed by Dr. Wu and yet to be debuted in the park is the massive and mysterious Indominus rex. Raised in isolation after devouring its only sibling, the Indominus rex, whose genetic makeup has been classified, is reaching maturity. To help assess the creature and the security of its containment, Claire visits Owen (Chris Pratt), an ex-military expert in animal behavior working at a secluded research base on the periphery of the main park. Owen is years into a training study with a pack of aggressive Velociraptors, over whom he’s established an alpha relationship that balances the animals precariously between reluctant obedience and predatory revolt.

When the Indominus rex—whose capacities for savagery and intelligence are unknown—stages an escape and disappears within the depths of the jungle, every creature in Jurassic World, both dinosaur and human, is threatened. For Claire, the lives that matter most are those of her nephews, who have ventured off course in a gyrosphere vehicle that allows 360-degree visibility of the world all around them. Now, Owen and Claire join the hunt for the boys as order inside the park turns to mayhem and guests turn into prey. Dinosaurs escape into the open, the skies and the water to engage in an all-out war for survival, and no corner within the world’s greatest theme park is safe anymore.

  Opening across the Philippines on June 10, “Jurassic World” is distributed by United International Pictures through Columbia Pictures.

You're Still the One: Movie Review

By: Lakwatsera Lovers

My mom and I decided to watch a movie last night, and we are choosing between "Para sa Hopless Romantic" or "You're Still The One." We both agree to watch the latter because my mom would love to see Richard Yap to redeem himself from "The Amazing Praybeyt Benjamin" and of course; I am a big Maja Salvador fan since birth. 

Ellisse (Maja Salvador) and Jojo (Dennis Trillo) end up being friends after Jojo beat her in their school debate. Jojo started to pursue Ellisse but tells him that she is still not ready for a relationship at the meantime. Years have passed; they meet again and this time Ellisse is ready, but she found out that Jojo is already getting married to Raquel (Ellen Adarna.) The two decided to stay friends despite the feelings they have for each other. Soon, Ellisse became a lawyer and met Vincent (Richard Yap) who falls in love with her. Will Ellise find true love this time around or will her past love finally can find his way through her heart?

The film seems to borrow some of its ideas to "Love Rosie." However, the story doesn't hold enough to make it interesting. There are also some scenes that aren't appropriate for a PG rating and the kissing scenes are exhausting. It suffered from cliches and the film is also a bit long. The only thing we loved is Maja Salvador, call me biased, but she is the best thing in this movie. I am willing to waste my time just to see her on the big screen more often. Ellen Adarna is also stunning but needs to excel more with her acting skills. Dennis Trillio was a fair choice but another leading man may have done the trick, and Richard Yap's inclusion is a bit awkward at times. 

Overall, You're Still The One is hard to recommend. Even the cast can't seem to save the film from sinking down to the drain. We just hope for a better project for Maja Salvador next time around. 

Lakwatsera Lovers rates it 4 out of 10 stars

Cast: Maja Salvador, Dennis Trillo, Ellen Adarna, Richard Yap

San Andreas: Movie Review

By: Lakwatsera Lovers

First, we would like to thank Warner Brothers Pictures PH for inviting us to the special 4DX screening of San Andreas at Bonifacio High Street. We are not a fan of the 4DX format as it tends to be a complete distraction while watching. The excessive movements were exhausting, and the "foul" smell adds more hindrances to the whole experience.   

After a massive earthquake hit California, LAFD rescue pilot, Ray Gaines (Dwayne Johnson) sets out to find his ex-wife (Carla Gugino) and daughter (Alexandra Daddario) in the middle of the wreckage of the whole city. He must use all his survival techniques in order to protect and save the lives of his family. Meanwhile, Dr. Hayes (Paul Giamatti) tries to alert the media to evacuate the city before its too late. 

It is a terrifying film since a lot of reports about an earthquake may happen soon around Metro Manila. It is a devastating calamity that is hard to imagine if it struck into our areas. The film is thrilling, exciting and a compelling disaster flick. However, some of the scenes are a bit hyped-up and the characters seem immortal from getting buried from the rubble. The visuals are spectacular and will be best if seen in 3D. 

Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson continues to bring the energy and charisma in every project he's in. He is a remarkable actor and still the Peoples Champion on the ring as well on the big screen. With Carla Gugino's third film with Dwayne Johnson, they had a great chemistry with each other and was believable throughout. We also love Alexandra Daddario's performance, who was truly a spark plug and a complement to the entire film. 

Overall, San Andreas is a complete package. It is an exhilarating disaster film you will surely enjoy, leave you breathless and stress you at the same time. Oh well, Dwayne Johnson just saved the day again.

Lakwatsera Lovers rates it 8.5 out of 10 stars

Cast: Dwayne Johnson, Carla Gugino, Alexandra Daddario

Directed by: Brad Peyton
Distributed by: Warner Brothers Pictures PH 
The film has been rated PG by the MTRCB, and will be shown in 3D, 2D and 4DX cinemas across the Philippines on May 28.

“JURASSIC WORLD” Unveils Videos of Chris Pratt's Stunt Work

Universal Pictures has now released a couple of new behind-the-scenes featurettes from “Jurassic World” that give viewers a look at the atmosphere on set, and actor Chris Pratt who plays the lead is just as funny and fun-loving as you’d imagine.
The videos may be viewed below: 


Steven Spielberg returns to executive produce the long-awaited next installment of his groundbreaking Jurassic Park series, “Jurassic World.”  Colin Trevorrow directs the epic action-adventure from a screenplay he wrote with Derek Connolly. Frank Marshall and Patrick Crowley join the team as producers.

“ENTOURAGE” Transitions From HBO Series into Feature Film

From the opening seconds of the first episode of HBO’s “Entourage” in 2004, viewers followed driver/errand boy Turtle (Jerry Ferrara) as he exited his bright yellow Hummer and strode distractedly through a sprinkling of Hollywood hotties into a hip Melrose Avenue restaurant, where he joined his homeboys from Queens, New York: the quartet’s de facto leader, up-and-coming movie star Vincent Chase (Adrian Grenier); former pizza boy-cum-talent manager, Eric Murphy (Kevin Connolly); and Vince’s half-brother, out-of-work C-list actor Johnny “Drama” Chase (Kevin Dillon). 

Cut to 2015 and, with nothing but blue skies and bright sun overhead, Warner Bros. Pictures’ “Entourage” opens on the familiar trio of manager-cum-movie producer Eric, drive-cum-tequila mogul Turtle, and still sometime working actor Drama.  But this time they’re navigating the wide-open sea in a speed boat, their destination a huge luxury yacht off the coast of Ibiza, where Vince, rising actor-turned-megastar, “mourns” the demise of his five-day marriage, surrounded by 200 or so of his closest acquaintances…mainly of the scantily clad female variety.  But it wouldn’t be a party without his boys, and clearly the party is back on.

The key to making the series transition into a feature film was to have the core cast from the series back together and, in classic “Entourage” fashion, to have as many guest stars and celebrity cameos as possible.

If any one of us had said we didn’t want to do it, the movie wouldn’t have happened,” Adrian Grenier, who plays Vince, candidly states.  “But of course we all wanted to do it.  We knew we’d have a great time and were excited about it, and we also wanted to give fans, old and new, even more—more famous people, more toys and more hot girls.  Basically, the ‘Entourage’ Hollywood lifestyle in all its glory, experienced through the eyes of these lifelong friends.”

With curious onlookers lining the streets of Los Angeles during the film’s production, and real stars and athletes clamoring for a chance to have a cameo, the job of making the movie mirrored the very lifestyle the characters enjoy, and made each day on set as unpredictable as ever.

Kevin Connolly says, “We’ve always had so much fun working together, it almost feels wrong to call it work.  So it didn’t take long to get back into the groove with everybody; we all just kind of clicked back together, almost on the spot.  Even though it had been a couple of years, it really just felt like an extended hiatus, and with Doug at the helm it was easy to step back into being these guys.”

As ├╝ber agent-turned-studio head Ari Gold, Jeremy Piven, who essentially plays the fifth man in this tight-knit family of friends, observes, “I really think everything works in the movie, just as it did in the series, because everything Doug Ellin writes comes from these characters’ core motivations.  Doug knows exactly what the audience wants to see; he chums the waters perfectly, but he never jumps the shark.”

In “Entourage,” movie star Vincent Chase (Grenier), together with his boys, Eric (Connolly), Turtle (Ferrara) and Johnny (Dillon), are back…and back in business with super agent-turned-studio head Ari Gold (Piven).  Some of their ambitions have changed, but the bond between them remains strong as they navigate the capricious and often cutthroat world of Hollywood.

  Opening across the Philippines on June 10, 2015, “Entourage” is distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.

PS3’S Popular Game “HEAVENLY SWORD” Now a Movie

Playstation 3’s “Heavenly Sword” leaps from game console to a movie that trails a tale of revenge that sees Nariko (Anna Torv), a fiery red-haired heroine, embark on a quest of vengeance against the invading King Bohan (Alfred Molina) and his army. Once considered the failure of a legendary prophecy, Nariko must wield a sword that was ultimately meant for another. This ancient Heavenly Sword, once belonging to a powerful deity, can never be wielded by a mortal without slowly and inevitably killing them. For Nariko, it’s a race against time to avenge her clan before her life is irreparably overtaken by the omnipotent Heavenly Sword.  The movie also features the voice of Thomas Jane.

Todd Farmer, the film’s director in recent interviews revealed that he became attached to the project after heading to E3 with the producers of the film. They looked around for video games that would make good movie adaptations and landed on Heavenly Sword.

I love the game because the story was so good,” Farmer said. I started out my first console was Pong. I went through Doom and Wolfenstein and up through Tomb Raider and everything else, and this [Heavenly Sword] was the first game that actually had a real emotional story. So it was a pleasure to take this to the screen.”

  Heavenly Sword” opens very soon this June from Crystal Sky Multimedia.

The “POLTERGEIST” (3D) Curse: Lost and Pissed Off Spirits Felt During Production

Poltergeist” is director Gil Kenan (“Monster House”) and producer Sam Raimi’s (“Spider-Man” trilogy) 3D, contemporary take on writer Steven Spielberg and director Tobe Hooper’s 1982 classic, about a family whose youngest daughter is abducted by a poltergeist shortly after moving to a suburban neighborhood. Starring Rockwell as down-on-his-luck former minor-league baseball player Eric Bowen, it’s the story of an ordinary family dealing with extraordinary circumstances. When these angry spirits abduct Madison, their six-year-old, Eric and his wife Amy [Rosemarie DeWitt] recruit a team of scientists and psychics – including the clairvoyant reality star Carrigan Burke (Jarred Harris) – to get her back.    
Poltergeist” updates an iconic brand, creating a classic haunted house tale that plays to our innermost fears.   It presents a family like ours, in a house like ours – but one that finds itself caught in an otherworldly trap. Both this year’s Poltergeist and the 1982 original give audiences a rollercoaster ride of thrills and fright with a story about the abduction of a family’s youngest child by supernatural and increasingly hostile forces. The rest of the clan then wages a gruelling battle to get her back safely. 

Unlike the original “Poltergeist,” which was set in a comfortable economic time during the 1980s, this film is situated in the rapidly fading, disenfranchised American ideal we know as suburbia. A rundown, cookie-cutter community of three-bedroom homes, unkempt yards and chain link fences in an Illinois neighborhood sets the scene for the unsuspecting protagonists, the Bowen family.  It reminds audiences that life in suburbia can sometimes be a long way from comfort and safety. 
The house itself embodies both light and darkness.  Initially, it is the saving grace for this hard-luck family, but it quickly turns menacing.   In “casting” the house, the production searched a wide area until they located the perfect one in a suburb in Hamilton, Ontario, a demographically diverse area. According to production designer Kalina Ivanov, not only did the house chosen by the filmmakers embrace the “blandness of modern architecture,” it also included a familiar suburban color scheme – “a symphony of beige,” as she calls it.  Ivanov goes on to explain that the neighborhood had to have high-intensity power lines, which are integral to the film’s supernatural-themed plot. 

However, even before the film’s production wrapped, the Poltergeist filmmakers experienced various unexplained occurrences during the making of the movie.  
Sam Raimi explains: “The big open field directly behind the house caused us some grief.  Gil was drawn to this field because it was the only area untouched in the neighborhood, so it really stuck out.  However, that open space seemed to interfere with our on-set radio microphones, personal cell phone transmissions, and the signals between the drone cameras and their operators.  The drone would work perfectly everywhere else but would crash whenever it attempted to fly over this area.  It was a disconcerting feeling at best.”

Then there were the on-set “poltergeists” that plagued the production.  To deal with the unwanted visitors, the filmmakers called in Brenda Rose, a Cleveland-based seer who connects with the paranormal. Rose uses a number of techniques to detect and cleanse a place from unwanted spirits.  “I help people navigate their lives in the most efficient way by insightful readings and that can look like a lot of things from numerology cards to personal energy,” she says.  “How spirits make themselves known changes from spirit to spirit; sometimes there's just something from the corner of your eye and other times it’s something actually trying to get your attention. When I'm in a session and open for spiritual business they can come from the left or right side. It ranges from organized chaos to just plain chaos, much like the family experiences in the movie.”
Tying directly to Poltergeist, Rose notes that, “usually when spirits get lost, they need a bit of guidance to find their way back to their destination.” 
But Poltergeist’s other-world denizens are not your typical ghosts. As Jared Harris’ character Carrigan Burke notes, “This isn’t just a few pissed off spirits we’re dealing with…”

 Poltergeist” (available in 2D and 3D) opens June 24 in cinemas nationwide from 20th Century Fox to be distributed by Warner Bros.
