    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

    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.

    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 :cunning:

    Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image

    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.

    Posted Image

    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.

    Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image

    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.

  4. 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.

    Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image

    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).

    Posted Image Posted Image

    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.

    Posted Image Posted Image

    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.

    Posted Image Posted Image

    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!

    Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image

    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.

    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.

    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!

  7. Yepper :D 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.

  8. 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.

    :kiss: stef

    ps. if there's nothing there, i'm going to have to remove this option as there's obviously a glitch. :doh:

    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.

    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.”
