Tribute to The Contrabidas

Paquito Diaz has recently passed on, meeting FPJ, Rudy Fernandez, Ace Vergel, and even Rene Requiestas in the gates of heaven continuing his thespic torment and that infectious villain laughter. Tito Kits, suddenly we realized that since all of the greats like you are being plucked one by one by The Great One, there are no strong bad guys and villains in Philippine movies anymore.

Here’s my simple tribute to the contravidas, the ones who make the bidas look good, the ones who raised hell..these are our Bad Guys, living or dead, in no particular order:


Romy Diaz




Best known for: The Ron Jeremy moustache, demonic laughter, deeply husky diabolical voice, big hats

Rodolfo “Boy” Garcia

  1. RIP to Paquito and to all those who went ahead of us. I guess there’s gonna be a reunion of stars up there…with Da King asking Tito Kits to join him once more in his movies…not to mention he’ll see his brother Romy again! Our dearly departed loved ones and friends will surely enjoy the all-star cast!

    I still can’t believe former punk actor George Estregan, Jr. is the governor of Laguna! Talk about changing the pace! LOL!

  2. si jess lapid jr. ang dating bida ngayon kontrabida na.
    si king gutierrez.kontrabida ni bong revilla minsan kalbo at minsan may buhok.

  3. ang magkapatid na mark gil at michael de mesa ay dating bida sa drama at nagiging kontrabida sa mga pinoy action movies.
    sina edu manzano,john regala at eddie garcia bida kontrabida rin
    si edu ay bida sa drama at naging kontrabida at bida sa aksyon
    si manoy eddie naman ay kontrabida na naging bida na sa mga action films.
    at si john regala naman ay kontrabida na naging bida at naging kontrabida uli.pero sa pelikulang vizconde massacre.naging rapist-killer siya ni carmela vizconde na ginagampanan ni kris aquino.
