  1. My approach to building my GB library was simple. I used Netflix. If I liked the movie and knew I wanted to see it again and again, then I purchased the DVD. The only movie that I winged it with was The Jury. But, I was confident based on the feedback from this web site and others the DVD would be well worth owning. And Gerry is marvelous! And yeah, in late 2008 I did not have a Gerard Butler library and now I do!
  2. For me it would be Dear Frankie. Gerry is so wonderful in this role, so somber and grave, each gesture simple and understated. I love how his character suggests a hidden world of heartbreak and sadness. But yet his inherent decency and goodness responds to Frankie and Lizzie. When he finally goes back to his ship, not only are Frankie and Lizzie in a more positive place, but the Stranger is a changed man as well. And I find it so lovely and touching. By the time it’s reveled that the Stranger is Marie’s brother there is no doubt in my mind that he will find his way back to Frankie and Lizzie.
  3. Reading this I’m struck with the fact that Gerry is much more patient and accommodating with fans and yes, the paparazzi, then many other celebrities would be. It must be exhausting to have those sorts of demands made on him, and yet he doesn’t isolate himself. Just keeps on living his life. I get why some fans lose all sense of proportion when meeting Gerry. It’s easy to think you know this guy when you’ve seen all his movies and watched and read his interviews. But there is nothing wrong with a little common sense and recognizing when it might not be a good time to demand an autograph or a p
  4. I would recommend this film. It’s complex and layered. The movie is stunning to look at, quite an accomplishment for a low budget film. I liked that Sarah was so difficult, unlikable. She was dying but not presented as being noble and wise because she was ill. She came back to her hometown and asked for what she wanted and didn’t much care who she hurt in the process. Not admirable at all and it has a destructive effect on Sam and Charlotte. But I also believe there were some pretty serious fault lines in Sam’s marriage to begin with. So give this movie a try. Gerry is terrific and sometime
  5. What I like is whenever anyone asks GB these questions he doesn’t give some boilerplate response. But instead gives thoughtful specific answers. Indicating he’s paying close attention to what he’s seeing. He did the same thing at the Golden Globes too, citing Eva Mendes, Kate Beckensale and Frieda Pinto. I like that he appreciates a variety of women of different physical types and ethnic backgrounds.
  6. My impression of GB so far is he shows little vanity when he’s not working. He doesn’t cover the grey in hair, gives every impression of putting on the first thing he finds on the floor and rolling out into the world. But in PSILY, there were several scenes where he had to convincingly play a young man in his mid 20’s who manages to win the leading lady in the short space of a walk and a couple of kisses. He needed to look young and radiant, which he did, this is not much different then training and building muscle for 300. I think he was just using the tools he needed to play Gerry Kennedy
  7. Wow! A flurry of Gerry news! Is it just me or is Mr B looking rather lean in these photos? Also his scruff looks less scruffy, like maybe he shaved a few days ago. Maybe he had to shave the beard off for a couple of scenes in LAC.
  8. Shattered was the first GB movie where I finally knew what Gerry really looked like. He wasn’t buried under a ton of beard and muscle. His face wasn’t hidden by a mask. I liked what I saw! He’s terrific in this movie too. He gets that Master of the Universe persona down cold. Oh, so charming with a tad too much self regard. And when it all falls apart around him he’s totally convincing in those emotional moments. And yeah, if you think about the plot too much you start wondering why both spouse’s didn’t confront their respective partners sooner and be done with it. But what the heck, there wo
  9. Here's the link the Bounty Hunter film aka Goree Girls they are the same movie, Gerry is still attached at this point. http://www.cinematical.com/2008/11/20/are-...on-goree-girls/ It's still in the predevelopment stages.
  10. That would be The Goree Girls, the project with Jennifer Aniston. I have not heard of any filming dates being set yet for that one. There might not even be a finished script yet. Also Jennifer just signed for another movie with Jason Bateman which has been announced as beginning filming this spring: http://www.variety.com/article/VR111799964...yid=13&cs=1 The Goree Girls may not be ready to go until next year. Burns might be ready to roll as soon as Gerry is done with LAC, or late spring this year.
  11. I’m enjoying reading these posts. I have rules about my crushes and am most likely a bit of an outlier here. But this is my approach to this sort of thing. I’m speaking for me only and not suggesting this is how other women should behave. First of all, I don’t flirt with men unless they are friends or peers. Gerry may joke about never hearing the raunchy bits, but that is not an open invitation, in my opinion to flirt with him if I were to have the opportunity to meet him. The fact I have a crush on him may motivate me to see his movies and help his bottom line. (No pun intended!) But the fa
  12. It is hard for small films to get distributed. My guess is they might go the festival route with this one. If it turns out well, Sundance or Toronto, win some awards, get distribution and maybe the movie is released in the US. The movie business is a real roll of the dice sometimes. I'm hopeful with Gerry's clout it will get some sort of release here in the states. I would definitely plant my butt in the movie theater to see Burns.
  13. I’m glad I’m not the only one who was so slow to catch on to Gerry. This is odd because I love actors from the UK in general: Clive Owen, Daniel Craig, Robert Carlyle. I did see GB in Mrs. Brown 10 years ago; I’m sure I noted him and then forgot him. Part of the problem is I went out to the movies much less after 2000. I started to rely more on DVD’s to catch up on my movie watching. So I did get pickier about movies. Thus, I missed Phantom of the Opera, because I saw the musical back in the day with Michael Crawford, with a friend of mine who was a total Crawford fan girl and I liked the p
  14. Great news! I saw One More Kiss recently and was very impressed with the film. For a small budget film it was visually stunning. So I don’t doubt the same team would do an excellent job with Burns. Very happy this movie is getting the green light at last.
  15. He does look nice and trim. It looks to me like he's even lost some weight since the New Years photos. I love the way his charm and spark seem to animate his features and make him so very attractive. For whatever reason I never really responded to him in 300, I thought he did a great job and looked the part but I didn’t walk away from that movie thinking I wanted to meet Gerry for a cup of coffee and share a few laughs. It wasn’t until Shattered and PS I Love You, that the light bulb went on in my slow brain. And I love that he is so generous and kind to his fans. I’m sure he’s just as imper
  16. Good for him! I’m happy he took the opportunity to attend at least one of the events. Jamie Foxx was all over DC this weekend. I wondered if Gerry might turn up too. I so appreciate Gerry's enthusiasm for our new President.
  17. I know that Botox methods are getting better and more subtle, careful use will retain face mobility. I don’t know if Gerry used botex for the Golden Globes, but I do know many actors are very concerned with the arrival of high definition technology. It shows every imperfection and line. Given that Gerry seems to have the typical fair skin that the Irish and Scots tend to have, he will age faster. The make up he wore at the Golden Globes was necessary to even out his skin which I’m guessing tends to redness and the occasional outbreak. Even the best of the female actors, Helen Mirren and Meryl
  18. Regarding IMDb: All the message boards for the actors have a high level of hostility, not just GB’s. I go there whenever I want to research an actor and see what movies they’ve made and there seem to be folks that hang out and troll all day long and everyday. So someone posts an item about Gerry Butler (could just as well be George Clooney or Daniel Craig), poster clooneysux will go on a rant about what a no talent bum, yada yada yada. It isn’t enough for these folks to simply not go to that actor’s movies, or just ignore the message board devoted to that person. Those message boards are ofte
  19. There is something about TMZ that makes me want to shower when ever I stumble across the TV show or am foolish enough to look at any of their videos. They are pond scum. Even when they pull their nonsense with performers I don't like I feel they go way over the line.
  20. That's so old school Hollywood, arriving by train! Very cool.
  21. Hello! I’m new here. This is my first post! Lately I’ve been catching up on Mr. Butler’s movie resume via Netflix and I like what I’ve seen. Mind you, he’s in a lot of genres that I don’t rush to see, but he’s often one of the most appealing actors in these various movies. So here are my thoughts on his career and why I think he’s made the choices he’s made. The movie business moves at snails pace. Thus it takes a while to fully implement the success of a huge hit like 300. I think LAC is the first real investment of the capital GB acquired with 300. The other movies he’s done were ether
