  1. spoilers continued... After being rejected by Megan, Gus shows up to their workplace again. This time he's there for Lucy, with a big bucket of red roses. She tells him to get lost as well but Gus knows how to work Lucy and breaks down her defenses. They kiss and go to a bar. While at the bar, Gus remarks at how many couples were there and that they would all enjoy the roses. While watching Gus go up to each couple, Lucy comes to a realization - that Gus always smells and tastes like booze (like her father) and that Gus was selling her roses for money for his own pocket. She's disgusted at him and herself. Outside the bar, she finally tells him off and walks away. Gus shows up at Megan's flat and tries to weasle his way back in with her. She's not having it until he says he has more information about her mother as he went back to talk to the old lady at the flat they visited together. She lets him in. They get back together as we're shown him in her flat when she gets back from shopping one day. He's on the phone with somebody, talking about money. He tells Megan that his friend needs some money badly and she lends it to him. I can't remember the exact details of what the sob story was. The story progresses, we find out that Megan hasn't seen Gus in weeks. She then has a brick thrown through her window and is confronted by a shifty guy outside her work. He says that she owes a large sum money as Gus listed her on some sort of contract. Gus has skipped town so she owes the money. He threatens her and Megan fears for her life. She turns to Lucy for help and apologizes for the situation with Gus. Lucy forgives her because they both were duped. They're accosted in the streets by the loan shark again and threatened. Meredia, their other co-worker, sees this happening and offers to give the thug the money (she just came into an inheritance). Megan is extremely grateful and offers to pay her back asap.
  2. spoilers continued... Megan and Gus are in her kitchen making out. While she's making breakfast, Gus suggests that she not talk about them being together while at the office. Megan asks why since he told her that Lucy was the one that dumped him. Gus said it was just best not to mention it. Gus surprises Megan with breakfast on her patio. She surprises him by giving him a cell phone... now she can reach him anytime. Megan definitely utilizes the phone a lot, calling Gus to find out where he is and when they're going to get together. Gus pays for his bar tab with the phone (he's out of cash and wants to get rid of it). Gus calls Megan at work on a pay phone and tells her that the cell was stolen and not to call it. Lucy answers Megan's phone and hears Gus' message. Gus hears her voice and hangs up immediately. Lucy is incredibly angry with Megan & Gus. Now through out this whole story, we are given other side stories that are pretty compelling. The most, in my opinion, being about Lucy's parents. Up until this point, it was pretty much a backstory because Lucy was busy in London living it up on her own. Now that she's broken up with Gus, the family storyline is more prevalent. Her father is a drunk and her mother is the long-suffering "martyr" that has stuck by him. However, Lucy has always had the image that her father was the suffering one b/c her mother was so overbearing and her dad just needed to unwind a lot and enjoy himself with a few drinks. After Lucy's mom finally moves out, Lucy then begins to realize the true situation. She moves back home to take care of her dad and sees his true colors. It's heartbreaking to see her come to this realization but essential for her character growth. She finally moves back to the London flat when she realizes that her dad needs to want help himself, she can't force it on him. Megan has a few issues of her own - she is trying to find her mother, she was given up as a baby and shuffled through the system. She tracks down an address of her birth mother on the internet and goes there with Gus to investigate. The lady that answers the door says that nobody by that name (I can't remember it, sorry!) lives there and she can't help them. Megan is upset and Gus comforts her. Gus surprises Megan at work. We're told that she hasn't seen him in weeks and she is angry that he just is now showing up. Gus has his usual range of excuses but Megan tells him to get lost.
  3. spoilers continued... The next episode starts by showing the flatmates & their boyfriends enjoying themselves at the flat - playing video games, a super-sized version of Jenga, and just hanging out. Gus calls Lucy at her work and Megan answers. He flirts with her on the phone. At the flat, Charlotte (Lucy's other flat-mate) has her heart broken by her boyfriend and Karen & Lucy comfort her. Daniel and Gus bring wine and cookie dough. That night in bed, Lucy and Gus are talking about Charlotte's break-up (I think). And I think she says something about how she doesn't need to worry about it b/c she and Gus are stable or something. The next morning, Gus is trying to leave without waking Lucy. She does wake and asks him what they're doing that night. He tells her he wants to take a break and Lucy is heartbroken. While out with her friends, Lucy sees her office-mate Hetty out with their boss and calls Megan to let her know. She gets the machine and leaves a message about how someone they know is leading a double life. While her message is being played, we're shown Megan and Gus getting hot and heavy on her couch.
  4. spoilers continued... Weeks later, Gus shows up to the flat. Lucy's flat-mates don't want to let him in as they're tired of how Gus treats her. Lucy is weakened though, she misses Gus and let's him in. After another long-winded explanation of his behavior (I can't remember his excuse this time), she forgives him. They are then showed eating ice cream in bed. Lucy comes home one night after work and finds the flat burglarized. She's particularly upset because the crystal rose bowl she bought as an anniversary gift for her parents has been taken. Then she sees Gus on the floor seemingly unconscious. He said that he was there waiting for her when he was attacked by the burglar. Daniel is suspicious of Gus' story. Megan throws a party at her flat and invites everyone. Gus is further taken by Megan when they share a few shots in her kitchen. Lucy gets in a fight with Daniel because of his continued suspicion of Gus. She yells at him and then grabs Gus for a big sloppy kiss in front of Daniel. They then leave the party to go back to her flat. Great scene because we are treated to some hilarious drunken dance moves by Gus LOL
  5. spoilers continued... Lucy and Gus have breakfast with her flat-mates and their respective partners the next morning and he invites them all to come down to the club where he sings some time. Lucy's office-mate Megan also joins them. Gus sings "the first time I ever saw your face" and Lucy is entranced. While settling up the bill for the drinks, Gus ducks out of having to pay his share by going to the bathroom. This does not endear Gus at all to Lucy's friends. On his way to the loo, he encounters Megan and flirts with her. While Gus is gone, Lucy's best friend Daniel talks to her as he's suspicious about Gus. Lucy cannot be swayed though, she's head-over-heels for Gus. The next episode shows Lucy, Gus and her flatmates/their partners playing Twister. After the game, Karen (Lucy's flatmate) suggests that they all have a grown-up dinner party soon as it'll be fun to dress up and eat proper food. Lucy takes Gus shopping with her, she needs a fancy dress for the dinner party. Gus loves the dress on Lucy and proceeds to show his appreciation by kissing her up her body while in the changing room. Lucy is dismayed though after by looking at the price tag, saying it's out of her budget. Gus decides to "help" by ripping the dress a bit and they get it at a discount. They leave the shop together giggling. The night of the big dinner party, Gus never shows, never calls, nothing. Lucy does have a phone number that he gave her, she calls it and asks for Gus. The guy on the other line says that Gus doesn't live there anymore, he's moved back in with Mandy. Lucy is crushed.
  6. spoilers continued... Gus and Lucy wake up the next morning and he meets her flat-mates. Later after work, they meet up again at a bar for a drink and then go down by the river again. Gus decides to make a grand romantic gesture by writing "Lucy and Gus" on a piece of paper with her lipstick and putting it in a bottle to be thrown in the river so that their love is eternal or something LOL. After Gus throws it in the river, he falls on the bank and gets all muddy. Now he needs a bath Gus is in Lucy's bathroom, muddy pants off, sitting on the side of the tub. Lucy comes in with more towels and things get pretty heated. While they're kissing, they fall backwards in the water and have a laugh. Then things get heated again and via Lucy's voiceover, we know they finally do the deed. Lucy wakes up the next morning to find Gus gone, no note, no nothing. She doesn't have his telephone number and doesn't know where he lives or works. She doesn't hear from him for a few weeks but she continues to fantasize about him, especially while reading a steamy romance novel. She envisions him naked on the bus with her. Gus shows up one night to Lucy's flat, he breaks in with a credit card. He worms his way around her questions. I think he said that his dad was sick and he was sick with worry about him and had to care for him. Anyways, it was a sob story. Lucy forgives him and they passionately kiss and the camera cuts away after they fall back on the couch.
  7. Now that I've finished capping the movie (thanks Holly for the dvd!), I'd be happy to discuss it because it was truly a rather enjoyable series. So if you don't want things to be spoiled for you, don't read any further... and know that while I'm giving a synopsis, my opinions will be scattered throughout. This will be done with several posts b/c I'll be using images from the gallery and there's a limit on how many can be used in a single post. . . . . . . . . It starts out rather fluffy - girl (Lucy, age 24) finally moves away from home and her seemingly oppressive/over-emotional mother and fun-loving dad to the big city of London and joins a flat with 2 other girls. She enjoys her new freedom and parties a lot of nights away with her new friends. Her co-workers and her go see a fortune-teller one day and each of them get predictions that their lives will change. Lucy's is that she's going to get married soon and it will be to a man that's not her usual type. So, when Gus comes into her life at a party, she's a bit head-over-heels b/c he's just so gorgeous and she's excited b/c he's "not her usual type". Yes, Gus is adorable and he knows it. Every word he spouts wraps Lucy even further around his little finger. He's VERY corny, very cliche. She falls hook, line and sinker. Especially after he decides to lick spilled beer off her dress. LOL Then she sees him leaving the party with another girl (after he said he was going to get her a drink, never returns and she goes to look for him). Lucy is disappointed he has a girlfriend but she continues to fantasize about him and wonders if he's who she is going to marry. Gus shows up at her workplace the next day (I think, or maybe a few days later) and gives Lucy back her wallet that she lost at the party. She's overjoyed that he tracked her down and brought it back but dismayed that someone at the party took money from it before Gus found it. However she's not upset long b/c Gus wants to take her out for a drink. We then see Gus paying for the drinks with the exact amount of money missing from Lucy's wallet... she doesn't see it. He sweet talks her, assures her that the girl she saw him with at the party was his cousin (i think, or some sort of relation) and tells her he wants to start something with her. She's ecstatic! They then go for a walk down by a river and Gus spouts off a lot of romantic drivel... Lucy actually admits (in a voiceover) that she does know he's cliche but she can't help it, he's Gus and he's wonderful. Gus picks flowers for Lucy and they share their first kiss. Lucy hopes it'll lead to more back at her place but Gus simply sleeps. Lucy is disappointed but thinks Gus is a gentleman.

  9. http://www.filmschoolrejects.com/news/gera...0-sequel-no.php Posted by Brian C. Gibson (brian@filmschoolrejects.com) on July 25, 2008 While sitting in the press conference for Guy Ritchie’s hopefully triumphant return into manhood, RocknRolla, Gerard Butler was asked about his possible involvement in the sequel/prequel for 300. While Butler very quickly said that he was contacted by the studio, he was also very quick to give an answer. Butler said that the studio contacted him for involvement, but when asked if he was actually going to reprise his role of Leonidas in some way…he gave a resounding “No”. When asked further about the issue, he laughed and just said “I will just leave it at that.” I actually think this is a good move. Butler is a guy who is always really proud of his work, and why fall into the trap of a unnecessary role. For how much I really liked 300, I am more looking forward to watching it more…rather than seeing a sequel or prequel. Also, I would probably be happier if Zach Snyder wasn’t involved as a director. The guy has a spotless track record so far and I’d hate for him to follow up what looks to be a masterpiece in Watchmen, with 300: The Deuce.
  10. Inquiring minds want to know!!!Found a pic that shows Gerry's arm while signing autographs, does that help? LOLhttp://redpeonies.blogspot.com/2008/07/comic-con-08.html large pic: http://bp2.blogger.com/_v9hFrYQnyQ0/SIn7rn...-h/DSC_0078.JPG
  11. http://www.empireonline.com/features/comic...Post.asp?id=207 by Chris Hewitt Hello, web! Due to hideous technical problems far beyond our control, understanding and, indeed, all human reasoning, today's videblogisode has been delayed by about a day. But, in case you're jonesing for your fix of hot Comic-Con action from Videblogisode Man and his sidekick, Cameraman-Man, I thought I'd sketch this quick précis of what you can expect when it finally goes up. The Return Of Videblogisode Man! Thought it was just a one-off gag? Well, it probably should have been, but since when have I ever paused before running a joke into the ground? Interviews galore! Yep. Today wasn't so much a calorie-burner, with Sam and I running around the main floor like eejits. Instead, we stayed largely rooted to the spot as we lined up for interview after interview with some of the biggest names in the business. The Rock. Chris Evans (no, not that one). Guy Ritchie. Gerry Butler. Joel Silver. Alex Proyas. Paul McGuigan. The new Punisher, Ray Stevenson, who turned out to be a thoroughly, thoroughly nice chap. Camilla Belle. Carla Gugino. The lovely Naomie Harris, my future ex-wife, who sent me into paroxysms of delight that usually end either in marriage or injunctions. All of them were subjected to the Empire line of questioning, which ranged from the poorly-researched to the bizarrely inappropriate. It'll all be up for your perusal tomorrow. And if you think that's all going to be a bit old hat, well, let me just say that you haven't lived until you've heard the Rock impersonate Mickey Mouse… Evil Cheerleaders! Scantily-clad ladies in the sort of cheerleader outfit you'd imagine Hugh Hefner would design. And other costumed Comic-Conners as the first day of the Con brought with it hardcore geeks celebrating their individuality by doing the same thing as hundreds of others: dressing up like their favourite characters. And if that's not enough to make you come back tomorrow, when we finally get it up (oo-er, stop sniggering at the back), how about these things we've learned? 1. Ray Stevenson had Punisher lapels made of gold and studded with rubies specially made for the cast and crew of the forthcoming flick, Punisher: War Zone. 2. The director of Race To Witch Mountain, Andy Fickman, really likes Empire. 3. Gerry Butler is a glorious ham. This is a reference to his penchant for playing to the crowd, not to how tasty he is. 4. Naomie Harris used to be heavily into ninjas. I'm getting my costume together as we speak. 5. Running around in public with a giant E sellotaped to your chest is not as humiliating as you might think. 6. Paul McGuigan is a top, top bloke with a refreshingly bemused reaction to the earnestness of the Con. 7. It's probably not a good idea to mention the Will Ferrell/Sacha Baron Cohen version of Sherlock Holmes to Guy Ritchie and Joel Silver, the guys behind the Robert Downey Jr. version. 8. Alex Proyas has a nice bag. 9. Idris Elba can't do a Scottish accent to save his life. 10. When your motherboard decides to stop working for the third time in two years, it's probably time to get a new laptop. Interest piqued? Mouth watering with anticipation? Come back tomorrow for the real, moving, walking, talking deal!
  12. Hi Cloey! You are more than welcome to post your pics & vid. Also, if you want to have them posted in the Gallery and Multimedia, feel free to send them my way - stef@gerardbutlergals.com Thanks! Stef
  13. It's sad that I know, but I know the gallery like the back of my hand. the original shoot was for PSILY in December http://gbgalsgallery.com/v/magazines/ps/latimes122007/ So this is a new old pic, same location but new pose that we haven't seen before
  14. Thanks Patsy! The official website is up too! without any content, but at least we know the URL http://www.rock-n-rolla.com/
  15. Thanks Chrissy for letting me know. I removed the option as it's got a glitch. So it should be removed now from your profile. Thanks again
  16. Yepper Anyone can have one, if they put something in that field. I can't restrict it to just the bloggers... but it automatically produces that graphic so it is just for the bloggers to have a quick link to their blog with their profile for easy access by anyone. i added mine the other day b/c i forgot it was there and i've been blogging again.
  17. Hmm... not quite sure either why you have it, unless you put something in the "Blog Option Link" under Control Panel < Edit Profile Information. That area is for those that blog on GALS and want to put a direct link to their blog in their profile space. Check your profile info and see if there's anything there under that area. stef ps. if there's nothing there, i'm going to have to remove this option as there's obviously a glitch.
  18. http://scotlandonsunday.scotsman.com/comme...ers-.4260532.jp -- excerpt -- Scots actor Gerard Butler, star of the historical epic 300, has recently come out as a dog lover. The former Glasgow law student is often seen in Hollywood's trendiest haunts with Lolita the Pug.
  19. http://network.nationalpost.com/np/blogs/t...ore-movies.aspx Prepare yourself: there is less than two months before the start of the 2008 Toronto International Film Festival, and as the countdown begins so does the hype. To whet your appetite, the festival announced a bunch of new movies on Thursday. They include: • A Gala Presentation of Secret Life of Bees (based on the smash hit novel) which follows a troubled teenage girl (played by Dakota Fanning) as she "finds solace in (the) mesmerizing world of beekeeping." Also stars Paul Bettany, Alicia Keys, Jennifer Hudson and Queen Latifah. • A Gala Presentation of The Duchess, starring Keira Knightley and Ralph Fiennes, about the Duchess of Devonshire, Georgiana Spencer. • The world premiere of Ghost Town, starring Ricky Gervais as a man who can see ghosts. As long as it's not Ghost Dad... • The highly anticipated world premiere of Larry Charles and Bill Maher's scathing documentary Religulous. Picketing at the premiere is not out of the question. • The North American premiere of art house fave Wong Kar-wai's latest, Ashes of Time Redux. • Director Guy Ritchie's comeback vehicle, RocknRolla, which fans hope will be more SnatchSwept Away. It stars Gerard Butler, Tom Wilkinson, and Jeremy Piven. and less • In the Masters program, look for films from Swedish filmmaker Jan Troell (Everlasting Moments) and Kiyoshi Kurosawa, whose film Tokyo Sonata -- which won the Un Certain Regard Jury Prize at this year's Cannes -- will have its North American premiere. • The Contemporary World Cinema program will offer films from Denmark, Greece, Turkey, Germany, Ethiopia, Iceland, China, and other countries around the world.
  20. http://network.nationalpost.com/np/blogs/t...t-game-too.aspx Fans of Gerard Butler -- and I know you’re out there -- appreciate the fact that the affable Glaswegian can go either way. Butler can do sweet and charming as illustrated by P. S. I Love You and Nim’s Island. And he can also kick butt with the best of them as his Spartan king underscored in his break-out movie 300. Looks like the 38-year-old returns to the action front for his next few films. In Guy Ritchie’s gangster picture RocknRolla -- set to premiere at the upcoming Toronto International Film Festival -- he plays One-Two, a gritty street-savvy crook involved in a real-estate scam. In the futuristic thriller Game, out this fall, he’s cast as Kable, the top-ranked warrior running for his life in a video blood sport called Slayers. OK. So after his huge hit 300, producers must be opening up the treasure chest to sign up the actor. Maybe and maybe not. “You know what, the money is better, but not in every job,” Butler says. “The first couple I did after 300 I was still taking less money than I did on Phantom of the Opera because I wanted to do them.” For instance? “Guy Ritchie,” says the actor. “I wasn’t going to have them pay me a lot of money on RocknRolla. The thing is I’m still going by what’s interesting and if you want to stay doing interesting jobs you can’t always get a payday.” In the end, he’s thrilled with RocknRolla, and predicts the crime thriller will return Ritchie to his lofty Snatch status. Game was more of the same must-do kind of movie, although much more demanding on Butler. “I probably had to run through 200 explosions in that one,” he says of the shoot in New Mexico earlier this year. One particular sequence still resonates with him. “I’m wearing like a skimpy combat shirt, but it’s rolled up to here,” recalls Butler. “And the fact is that there’s a whole building exploding behind me and just before we go, they say ‘Everybody, make sure all your skin is covered. And stay at least a hundred feet from the explosion.’ Shaking his head, Butler adds with a smirk, “I’m twenty feet maybe.” He survived that and many more special effects like it. And all things considered, he can’t wait for audiences to see Game results. “It’s different than anything I’ve ever seen,” he says. Meanwhile, Butler grins and bears the fame and the recognition that makes him more public than he ever intended to be. “I do get recognized and the problem is that when I am recognized the reaction is often very strong just because of the kind of movie that 300 was or even sometimes Phantom,” he says. Phantom? Really? “Phantom’s a movie that you either loved or hated,” reports Butler. “But if you loved it, you really do, and I’ve seen some very, very strong and passionate reactions.” -- Bob Thompson
  21. It's part of the layout from our forum provider. I didn't realize it was an issue. I can turn the feature off.
