si coney reyes yung nire-rape nung kano. bata pa siya sa movie kaya di agad makikilala.

kahit suntok sa buwan, sana may mag-upload nitong movie sa torrents.

music: tito soto hahaha... mali pa yung spelling. pero oo nga. he used to do music scores before.

by the way, napag-usapan na rin lang si coney reyes at si lotis key, they had this 70s comedy movie with maricel soriano (nene pa siya then) and eddie garcia called "Lady Luck." any luck (pun intended) na you could provide info (at poster, syempre)?

leila hermosa... i recall another comedy called "loose connection."

thanks for this site. 2 thumbs up!
