Ryan Reynolds tries to fit in despite being a misfit in “THE VOICES”


RYAN REYNOLDS TRIES TO FIT IN DESPITE BEING A MISFIT IN “THE VOICES”

Injecting new twist on the serial killer movie genre, acclaimed graphic novelist Marjane Satrapi helms “The Voices” with a perfectly pitched cast led by Ryan Reynolds along with Gemma Arterton and Anna Kendrick in a story so unique about a misfit who walks on a very thin line between being the protagonist and antagonist.

In “The Voices,” Reynolds stars as Jerry Hickfang who works at a bathtub factory and attempts to walk the straight-and-narrow, in spite of his talking pet dog and cat trying to influence him. When he accidentally kills an attractive woman from accounting (Arterton), he hastily tries to cover his tracks. But Jerry is beyond the reach of his well-meaning psychiatrist Dr. Warren (Jacki Weaver) and Lisa (Anna Kendrick), the only woman he ever truly loved, and spirals into a world of violence where he ultimately finds salvation.

Director Marjane Satrapi typically only works on pieces she has written, but “I just couldn’t put the script down,” she recalls. “I thought that it was an extremely ambiguous, very unique story. This crazy world of Jerry’s was one of the best descriptions of schizophrenia that I ever read. I don’t like so much to film reality because I live in reality. I prefer, when I have the opportunity, to create a whole world around something.”

“What Jerry wants in life is to be accepted and to be seen by people as a good person, somebody worthy of their friendship, but ultimately he is one of the loneliest guys on earth,” explains Ryan Reynolds of his character, who has no family and lives above a derelict bowling alley at the edge of a small town in Michigan. “He is something of a misfit and throughout the course of the movie we find he has a lot of demons and a lot of baggage that he carries around with him all day. He strives to be a good person but walks that thin line between protagonist and antagonist.”

“I was attracted to the idea that Jerry has these dual natures, the proverbial angel and devil on his shoulders,” continues Reynolds. “Mr. Whiskers, who is kind of a Scottish mercenary and the voice of destruction and violence, and Bosco, who sounds a bit like a dim southern gentlemen that voices kindness and compassion, are Jerry’s cat and dog, his dueling natures, he listens to each of them. I don’t think he particularly likes the cat, but Mr. Whiskers serves a purpose in his life and Jerry’s warped mind keeps him safe.”

Producer Adam Stone further enthuses on the film’s uniqueness, “It’s not just a thriller, or just a comedy or just a fantasy,” whose Mandalay Vision focused on the script when it appeared on The Hollywood Black List three years ago. “It’s a completely original screenplay that’s not formulaic; you don’t know if you should laugh or cry, and I love that!” Adds producer Matthew Rhodes, “I love psychological thrillers and THE VOICES is unique in that it makes you think, really makes you feel, as we follow Jerry down the rabbit hole and discover he is not the person he thought he was. He struggles because he doesn’t want to be evil.”







“The Voices” will open this June 3 exclusively at Ayala Malls Cinemas nationwide. Visit www.sureseats.com for schedules and more exciting news and promos.

Anna Kendrick drives Ryan Reynolds crazy in “THE VOICES”


ANNA KENDRICK DRIVES RYAN REYNOLDS CRAZY IN “THE VOICES”

Pitch Perfect star Anna Kendrick stars alongside Ryan Reynolds in the bizarre crime thriller “The Voices” about a man in his 30’s suffering from schizophrenia who speaks to his pets, a dog and a cat which he regards as his conscience.

In “The Voices,” Jerry (Reynolds) is that chipper guy clocking the nine-to-five at a bathtub factory, with the offbeat charm of anyone who could use a few friends but one who needs his medication to function normally. With the help of his court-appointed psychiatrist (Jacki Weaver), he pursues his office crush Fiona (Gemma Arterton) and later his other officemate Lisa (Kendrick). When Fiona agreed to go out with him on a date and carelessly stood him up to go out with her other friends, Jerry’s odd behaviour begins to get the better of him. During the night when Fiona stood him up, he finds her on the road trying to get a ride going home, Jerry then offers her a ride while his hallucinations start to fill his mind until he realizes he has already slit open Fiona’s throat. Once at home, his dog Bosco tells him to confess to the police but on the other side, Mr. Whiskers says otherwise. Jerry then disposes Fiona’s body part by part until her detached head inside his fridge. A week after, Jerry decides to return to work and eventually goes out with Lisa who has long been interested in him but has no idea of Jerry’s psychotic tendencies.

“It was the script for that movie that totally blew me away at first,” enthuses Kendrick, “and then it was knowing that Marjane (Satrapi) was directing it. Ever since I saw Persepolis, I knew I had to work with her. It’s one of those movies that lives inside my mind and keeps popping up all the time. And then when I knew Ryan Reynolds was going to be playing the lead, I had to say yes. You see that’s how it happens to me. People always ask me why I do so many films, but I never set out with that in mind.”

Doing all three characters was a challenge, says Reynolds. “On set, we’d go through the scene. I would perform Mr. Whiskers and Bosco, and then I would also have to do Jerry. It was tough.” For Jerry, these voices represent the intersection of his fantasy and reality worlds, and his struggle to follow a righteous path. “It’s about a guy on a tightrope,” says Reynolds. “It’s about a guy who’s walking that very thin line between protagonist and antagonist."




“The Voices” opens exclusively at Ayala Malls Cinemas nationwide on June 3. Check out Ayala Malls Cinemas’ www.sureseats.com for more exciting movie offerings.

Lizzy Latte's "Vanilla Latte" is ♡♡♡


First and foremost, I'd like to clarify that I'm not a Lizzy Latte brand ambassador or endorser. LOLZ! I just really so love this place so much that I wanna share each Lizzy Latte experience that I have with you guys. For you to try it as well, of course.

I think Lizzy Latte is more like a "destination" coffee shop rather than a "community" one. Starbucks is, I think, an example of a "community" coffee shop. With Lizzy Latte, it's like you're really gonna visit the place not because it's the nearest coffee shop from your office or your condo but more so because, probably, you wanna try something new or you've already developed a relationship with one of their drinks.

And that's what I've developed with their Vanilla Latte. Teehee! CHOZ!

I oftentimes visit Lizzy Latte whenever my Tita Rachel is in town. She loves the place so much as well. It's like our small piece of heaven in the very busy Makati Central Business District.
One thing that I really like about their Vanilla Latte is that it's not "watery." The texture of the coffee feels really thick and creamy and the hint of vanilla is very evident in every sip. Such a perfect treat for every coffee lover, I'm telling you.
Another thing that I wanna try at Lizzy Latte is their Oreo Cheesecake.
Look at that! Spell...O-R-E-O...C-H-E-E-S-E-C-A-K-E....

Lizzy Latte is located at Builder's Center Building, Salcedo Street, Legaspi Village, Makati City.

Here's their menu that I was able to find on my ever trusted Zomato.

Who is that "gay" I see staring straight back at me...?

Why is my reflection someone I don't know?

Must I pretend that I'm someone else for all time?

When will my reflection show...who I am inside?
