  1. During a little bit more than a year (I tried to cope unsuccessfully with my GALS for some time by myself before joining this wonderful place), I managed to: - buy on DVD and watch 13 films he is in (one more - POTO - I already had), - change my mobile phone alarm sound ("wake up"...) and ringing tone (bits of of either Music of the Night or Point of No Return), well, my boyfriend does not approve it so much, especially in the morning..... - buy a new laptop to be able to communicate better with you (well, it comes useful for other things too, even for my boyfriend...), - change wallpapers and screensavers on both computers (guess, who is there now...) - change my home dial-up interntet connection for ADSL modem (it enables to be on internet for unlimited time, it is quicker, has more capacity, and can be connected by WiFi, I use it when I am at home, of course, I felt a little bit bad to use my work computer, even when I was not working in the evening, in addition to that, it is monitored from time to time - but again, it is useful for other purposes as well for both of us) - I saw PSILY 7 times during 7 week it was on in our multiplex (I must confess that last March, my GALS was not developed so much yet and I was still so full of POTO, so I did not dare to go and see 300 when it was in the cinema, I even thought that I would not like it, so I bought it on DVD only when it was available in September) - I have ordered a T-shirt, button and magnet from the boutique (it has not arrived yet, so I do not know how often and how I would wear it) Well, these are things that are "measurable". Otherwise, I probably do not have to tell who I am thinking about all the time and where I spend much time....... But it is very nice to be here. Have a good time, all of you, I have to go to my work (it is Friday, a little bit after 8 a. m. here). Good night, sweet dreams, and see you tomorrow!
  2. "Love Me Tender" (of Elvis Presley). It would be cute of him! Of course, it is not necessary to tell us.....
  3. Thank you for the link! The video is really cute! I would like to see it like this in the film! And also, Fire and Rain is one of my favourite songs, it was nice to hear it!
  4. When I watched the film, I just thought to myself that in this situation, it is difficult, if possible at all, to react in a "right" way. All of the main characters had their justifiable reasons and flaws - all were just human beings with their faults, which I liked about the film. I fully understand that Sam wanted to make the last days of his ex-girlfriend nice, but they did not need to go so far (I also assumed they were making love in that old house). From the point of view of Sarah, it might seem like emotional blackmailing, but it is difficult to put yourself into shoes of somebody who knows she has just few days/months left, while the others will be around for many more years (and can make it up later). She was probably very selfish, too much career oriented, less emotional in general - I think the actress played this very well. So even in this situation, it was just another goal, plan to push through for her. She did not seem to too much considerate as a person. Normally, we tend to feel compassion with people suffering from terminal illness, it is true that Sarah did not evoke it so much. Charlotte has probably met Sam only after Sarah had left (if she did not know Sarah at all). I do not know, probably if she was more accommodating at the beginning, if all three together did only some "harmless" activities for Sarah to feel better (like parachuting, kite, horseriding...) it would solve the situation somehow. But it is really difficult to say. It would have been something else if, for example, all three of them were friends from their childhood, but it was not the case. But I really hated the behaviour of Sam when he let Charlotte be alone at the concert (if he knew she was there just because of him, that she actually did not like the music). One thing is "not to hurt anybody", but here he was hurting quite a lot. And I agree with Charlotta that she behaved as she behaved. I do not know how often did Sarah contact even her father, she apparently visited first Sam, and only then went to her father, so Frank could not have told her that Sam was married, but if I was Sarah, I would assume that a boy in this age can marry or date another woman if I left him "unattended" eight years before that.... I found the film interesting, none of the characters is black-and-white, you have something to think about. And he looked so cute! He should let his hair grow longer even now!
  5. I try not to forget keep clicking every day and from every computer I get to (well, basically two - at work, and at home). I hope it helps at least a little.
  6. It is true, especially if POTO had in the UK the second largest box office sales abroad (after Japan) - $17,527,353, so at least some people must remember. Or know it from DVD. Actually, my GALS started when I bought POTO on DVD in the UK a little bit over one year ago.
  7. Thank you for the link! The more information, the better! I just think that for British audience, the author should have added The Jury, that is British and was released on DVD in the UK, BOAW, that was released there just recently, and PSILY, that is being offered for pre-ordering in Britain as well. But still, I envy our British friends, in our country, there is much less information about him. And I have become the Stranger's GAL! I do like Atilla, but the Stranger is one of my favourite characters!!!!!!!!!!!
  8. Hello, ladies, I am back again - I have a short break at work - while you are (hopefully) peacefully sleeping. I promise this is my last post on this topic, but I feel it a little bit different. We probably all agree that pictures from purely personal life (dentist, lunches, etc.) are interference and we should not watch it. But even "work pictures" might be of different cathegories. Of course, filmmaking is mysterious and attractive for all of us who do not work in it, so we are curious, the filmmakers know it, and many pictures are taken "officially", we then watch them in different "behind the scenes" clips. But if paparazzis take pictures without the consent of the people involved, they interfere and annoy there. I think these areas are something like a backstage in a theatre - you do not go there either, if you are not part of the performance. I do not think GB became a star to be photographed everywhere, he does not seem to be such an exhibicionist. KNOWING is not WANTING. He just likes his work, and this "publicity" might be a considerable downside of this profession to him. I do not want him to stop acting because of stupid paparazzis. I do not think anybody would be interested in taking pictures of me either, but I just tried to imagine that, and I think must be very unpleasant. So I do not wish it to somebody I respect so much. Well, I wish you all sweet dreams and beautiful morning!
  9. I am afraid it is the same thing (I even think a better comparison would be if somebody came and took pictures in your office when you are just preparing for the class - and do not do anything strictly private; in a classroom, it is already "public", you have to think about your students, how you sound, look like....). Maybe it is not the case of exactly those pictures, they seem they know about it, but him walking and "making faces", getting off the car... It just should not be taken.
  10. You wrote so nicely what I feel as well. Of course, he is an adult and strong man, he has his family to support him, but I think it is not bad if other people care about him, try to support him and believe in him (no matter what the "press" writes, referring to latest things) without interfering into his life (which, I hope, we want to). I am afraid we cannot do much more for him, although we would like to.
  11. I think this person (TC) has primarilly a big problem with himself. Otherwise he would not be so negative and envious about everybody he is writing about. What he writes is not funny at all, he just dispraises himself by doing it.
  12. Thank you for the article! It is very interesting. GB has really a very good taste (which we knew, of course), Ennio Morricone is such a wonderful composer! I did not know it was possible to see and hear him on concert!
  13. Thank you for the link, the pictures are nice and he looks gorgeous as always (even more)! I just feel a little bit bad to watch them - I doubt he really wants them to be taken, I think the paparazzis disturb them (the whole TUT crew) too much already. But these pictures look so good, maybe they knew about the paparazzis and let them in.
  14. Thank you for the link! As I have already written elsewhere, I like him in this shirt, but do not like that they do not let him work in peace. And this stupid title - I am sure nobody asked him what it was like to work with Katherine Heigl, they were just taking pictures without his consent and then thought up the text. Which is too sad. Then we cannot be surprised at his faces and expressions he possibly said.
  15. I must say I have mixed feelings as to that problem concerns. I am curious to see any pictures of him, I hope that it is for another reason than all these paparazzis do - I am just interested in what he is doing, and in our country, the press is quite silent about him. If any of his film is available here on DVD, I buy it for sure, I have already bought a lot of other ones in Germany or UK (so far, I have 14 on 16 DVDs). From my side, it is just curiosity and concern what he is doing and if he is OK, but I must confess that I have already clicked several times on these internet pages (to see it more times), so if these guys are "valued" according to the "response" to their "news", I am afraid, I am adding to their motivation to continue in those "activities". And I really do not want them to disturb Mr. Butler - neither in his professional career, nor in his personal life. But there is a question what should we do. It is probably good to know what is going on, a strict ban for news like that will not solve the problem.
  16. He looks so great in this shirt! Thank you so much for the link! But he does not seem to be too happy. Is it a result of too much sunshine, omnipresent paparazzis, or something else? We can only guess. I am afraid it cannot be very pleasant if they photograph him in every moment of his everyday work - he should have some space and be allowed to concentrate on his work! I hope he knows we are just very curious and would like to see that he is OK, but maybe not everybody is like that.

  18. Thank you for the links to these two videos! They were great! And he looks so irresistibly beautiful in this suit (he looks great in everything, but in this one - it is just amazing!)!!!!!!!!!!!!! And it is so good he supported such a nice thing! To me, he does not look too nervous (for such a big, formal occasion). In most of the photographs from the event, he looks happy and relaxed, which is very good. I just wish he stayed like this forever! I hope he does not read and watch those stupid tabloids and does not let them spoil his peace of mind.
  19. This site is so big that I sometimes find things only after a few days. I hope I have already sent 3 votes (does anybody know how it calculates "once a day"? If there has to be 24 hours between two votes, or if the "decisive moment" is a midnight - in which time zone? It seems to me that it counted me two votes in one day, but they might have been in two different days in another area). But it is nice to see the sum growing.
  20. I am afraid it really is not in a festival selection. I am sure there are many other film screenings at the festival, but not as a main part of it. http://www.festival-cannes.fr/assets/File/...Kit_2008(5).pdf Also, there is a question if they finished filming The Ugly Truth by then, the festival starts in a month! Although it would be wonderful to have him back in Europe!
  21. The way the author writes the "article" it really does not look like he personally saw anything, just speculates without any support (pictures) and tries to be be "amusing" in the worst imaginable way. It is the worst piece of "journalism" I have ever read. You can write practically anything if you "work" like that. For me, the article does not seem credible, so I did not react earlier. The person who wrote it seems to treat other people in a similar way, judging from the second "article" that was on the page. I just do not understand that there are people willing to read such a garbage (otherwise he would not write it).
  22. They are sooooooooooooooooo beautiful! He looks so good in this suit, and the eyes.......... Thank you so much for posting it!
  23. Thank you all very much for enabling us to see those beautiful videos (and pictures)! He is so unbelievably charming! I could watch both for ages!!!!!!!!!!!!
  24. Is it really so important what he is wearing? He looks great in everything! And we do not know if this is not supposed to be a "costume" (as the film is a contemporary one), or, if he knew that as soon as he gets to the site, he will get another "costume" - why to worry about the outfit so much? What I did not like is that JJ is the same again - just speculations... I am really happy I am not a famous person, if they take it like that, I would have to date tens of men at the same time (because we walked down the street together, live in the same building, work at the same place....). According to them, whoever even appears at your proximity is authomatically a boyfriend/girlfriend.
  25. It is sweet of him to take Lolita with him! She would be sad at home, I believe! Oh, I would love to see them, at least in the picture! Thank you for the article. He looks gorgeous in this shirt (it is a pity the sun shone so much, otherwise I am sure he would have had a nice expression in his face), and even JJ and its readers seem to be exceptionally polite.
