The Clock Strikes Midnight

Posted in Random Non-Film Talk on January 1, 2010 by Carlo Chong

I’d just like to greet everyone in behalf of NO POPCORN ALLOWED a very happy new year to you and your families!

And to get in the mood for 2010, might I recommend the quirky little independently produced 2008 flick entitled In Search of a Midnight Kiss, a small but charming study on life and love.

To a big year for film!

Happy Holidays from No Popcorn Allowed

I know everyone’s been off eating and celebrating Christmas with their families and I’m no exception, so many holiday greetings from NO POPCORN ALLOWED!

The Dark Knight has been playing on HBO so that’s a pretty Christmas gift for all you movie fans. Be safe with any firecrackers guys!

It’s Halloween and NO POPCORN ALLOWED is officially back!

After two whole weeks away from home, including an unexpected last minute trip to the Ateneo Student Leaders Assembly (ASLA), I feel overwhelmed with gratitude and love for all the people around me.


ACLC. ACOMM. ASLA. Thank all of you so very much!

It’s barely been two weeks since NO POPCORN ALLOWED has been up but I’m sorry to let you guys know that the site will be on hiatus from today, October 18, until the 26th at the most.


I sincerely thank you all for your support for this young and new blog and rest assured NO POPCORN ALLOWED will be back in business and better than ever once I return from my 7-day silent retreat and 3-day evaluation seminar.

For now, just keep on watching them movies!

500 HITS!

NO POPCORN ALLOWED has just reached its 500th hit! I know it isn’t much but I’m still proud that after more than a week of activity, the site has slowly but surely picked up steam.

To the next 500×500 hits!
