  1. thank you for your explanation Mel! I didn't read the book, so i had no idea. I guess the reason I felt that way about Daniel was b/c it seemed so one-sided, and i didn't get the feeling she was all that emotionally connected with him or anything. to me, he was just someone that was there in her life. i am glad too that they didn't end up together as in a formulaic way (i pretty muched guessed she would go back to ireland and eventually see william), but again, i was just perplexed by the whole thing b/c i never saw any chemistry between them (her & daniel).

    ouch, my head hurts from analyzing LOL i guess i should see it again too to help clear out my cobwebs :D


  2. Thanks for creating this Mel! :D

    Overall, i really enjoyed the movie. i cried twice, which i NEVER do in movies, ever! My guy came with me, and he said he really liked it too (which was surprising b/c i was worried about it being to chick-flicky for him).

    i really don't understand all of the negative reviews - i thought G & H had fantastic chemistry. My only main issue with the movie was harry connick jr.'s character. he's a fantastic actor but i just thought it was a wasted character and didn't really do anything to enhance the plot, just to lengthen the movie more than necessary. Willy and i both thought that when he and Hilary didn't hook up.

    that was our only main issue, other than that i was so pleasantly surprised by my emotional reaction to it. i friggin' lost it when she called his voicemail over and over to hear his voice and when she sang her emotional karaoke.


  3. fyi: i'm getting HQs into the gallery very soon.

    below is the caption that accompanied them:

    Gerard Butler of '300' fame seen at the Waverly Inn. Gerard came in a cab by his lonesome and picked up a mystery blond on his way out. He had to ask the girl where they were going while quickly hailing a cab as the paparazzi closed in.

    7 GERARD BUTLER

    NEW ENTRY

    Now a Hollywood heart-throb after showing off his six pack in 300 and Beowolf. But Gerard, 38, says his looks mean people don't take him seriously.

    HE'S SIZZLING BECAUSE

    He brings new meaning to being "dead sexy" in new afterlife film P.S. I Love You.


  5. I was just talking about this with my fiancee this morning. i noticed last night that one of our local theatres is showing PSILY at midnight on Thursday/Friday morning and i wanted to go to it b/c i'm a night person and b/c i'm starting my vacation on Friday. They're also showing charlie wilson's war, walk hard: the dewey cox story, sweeney todd, and the national treasure sequel at midnight there.

    we went to the 300 midnight showing back in march and it was PACKED and they opened other theatre rooms to accommodate everyone - but this is mostly b/c i live and work in a college town. But since this is finals week (everyone's either studying or going home) and like you said, this is a rom/com i seriously doubt it'll be like that for this one. i'm interested to see how busy it will be.

    From Rebecca Murray

    At the Los Angeles press junket for the romantic comedy P.S. I Love You Gerard Butler was asked by a male reporter if, after winning over the hearts of women worldwide in 300 and now starring – and stripping – in P.S. I Love You, he’d just give real guys a break. Butler’s response came accompanied by a hearty chuckle. “I should give myself a break as well because I’m only playing characters. I’m not, unfortunately, like either of them in real life. Not quite as powerful as Leonidas and not quite as charming and sweet as ‘Gerry’. I’m only letting myself down as well.” Read more...

    Fan to Gerard Butler: P.S. You Sexy Bitch!

    Spartan god Gerard Butler battled what seemed like 300 adoring fans as he made his way to the after-party of his new romcom "P.S. I Love You" in Hollywood on Sunday. Take off your shirt!

    As the 38-year-old man candy signed autographs and crossed the street, a fan in heat is heard screaming, "Gerry, you're a sexy bitch." Without skipping a beat, Butler responds, "I know."

    How could he not?!

    Warner Bros has released the first two production photos from Guy Ritchie’s RockNRolla, a crime thriller starring Gerard Butler. Click on the images to enlarge. Everyone is hoping that this film might be a return to form for Ritchie, who has had a string of critical bombs and box office failures. We have a reader submitted test screening review below.

    The film follows a Russian mobster who orchestrates a crooked land deal, putting millions of dollars up for grabs and attracting all of the criminal underworld. Everyone from a dangerous crime lord to a sexy accountant, a corrupt politician and down-on-their-luck petty thieves conspire, collude and collide with one another in an effort to get rich quick. The film also stars Thandie Newton, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, Jeremy Piven, Idris Elba, and Tom Wilkinson.

    The following test screening review is from Eternal, who saw the film last month:

    I just LOVED this movie!!!! I wish I could tell you all EVERYTHING about RocknRolla, but unfortunately, if I do, I will give too much of the movie away and ruin the fun for everyone!

    This IS a real gangster movie, even though its funny. Its hard to explain. If you’ve seen one of Guy Ritchie’s other films, like Lock Stock and 2 Smoking Barrels, you’ll know that Ritchie can do both funny and serious at the same time.

    Let me just say this is the comedic performance we have been waiting for from Gerard. This movie is a hilarious crime/heist film and Gerard is just hilarious as the ne’er-do-well small time criminal, OneTwo. (They never explained where that name came from, but anywhoo….) Basically, OneTwo hangs out with his buddies and fellow crooks (called with seeming heavy sarcasm, “The Wild Bunch”)waiting for the next job and not doing much else.

    Gerard gets to be charming, funny, somewhat goofy and at the same time totally cool. And I like that this is the only movie in a long time where Gerard actually looks like himself, I mean the way he does wandering around in real life. No dyed hair, put on abs, strange beards or makeup: just pure and natural (and all the hotter because of it) Gerard! We’ve been in such a Gerard drought, I’d almost forgotten why I love this many so much and find his so appealing and attractive as an actor, but this movie brought it all back for me!

    I can’t talk about too many scenes without giving too much away, but I will say my favorite Gerard scene was where he in the car with “Handsome Bob” and loses his temper. Another was a hilarious dance scene with Gerard and Thandie Newton (where Gerard does a pretty good “white guy trying to be cool” dance.) He and Thandie also have one of the funniest (and shortest) “sex” scenes in film history. There is also one of the funniest and most over the top (in a good way) fight/chase scenes I think I’ve ever seen in a film with some great (future classic) Gerard moments. The most of a spoiler that I will give is that OneTwo’s band of ne’er-do-wells success as criminals is more do to dumb luck than any actual skill or aptitude.

    I also have to mention this movie is full of really brilliant performances, especially by Tom Wilkinson (as usual), Mark Strong, Tom Hardy and Toby Kebbell. Toby Kebbell is a new “face” for me, but after this film, he is someone whose future work I’m looking forward to seeing.

    Oh yeah, and the title is explained, but I can’t tell you that either, because that would be a spoiler too.

    RockNRolla will hit theaters in the Third Quarter of 2008.


  9. you might see Gerry, the quality will definitely not be that great but you might see glimpses of him and the cast/attendees.

    I think it's pretty cool to see the red carpet from this vantage point. when i was there for the '300' premiere, we were scooted along the carpet so quickly (plus I was battling the flu) so i don't remember much LOL i'm glad to be at my computer for this one, instead of trying to catch up on everything afterwards. :D

    Opening on Friday, December 21 is �P.S. I Love You,� the new dramedy starring Hilary Swank and Gerard Butler. Here�s the synopsis:

    Holly Kennedy (Hilary Swank) is beautiful, smart, and married to the love of her life�a passionate, funny and impetuous Irishman named Gerry (Gerard Butler). So when Gerry�s life is taken by an illness, it takes the life out of Holly. The only one who can help her is the person who is no longer there. Nobody knows Holly better than Gerry. So it�s a good thing he planned ahead.

    Before he died, Gerry wrote Holly a series of letters that will guide her, not only through her grief but in rediscovering herself. The first message arrives on Holly�s 30th birthday in the form of a cake and, to her utter shock, a tape recording from Gerry, who proceeds to order her to get out and �celebrate herself.� In the weeks and months that follow, more letters from Gerry are delivered in surprising ways, each sending her on a new adventure and each signing off in the same way: P.S. I Love You.

    Holly�s mother (Kathy Bates) and best friends, Denise (Lisa Kudrow) and Sharon (Gina Gershon), begin to worry that Gerry�s letters are keeping Holly tied to the past, but, in fact, each letter is pushing her further into a new future.

    With Gerry�s words as her guide, Holly embarks on a touching, exciting and often hilarious journey of rediscovery in a story about marriage, friendship and how a love so strong can turn the finality of death into new beginning for life.

    �P.S. I Love You� stars two-time Academy Award winner Hilary Swank (�Million Dollar Baby,� �Boys Don�t Cry�), Gerard Butler (�300�), Lisa Kudrow (TV�s �Friends�), Harry Connick Jr. (�Bug,� TV�s �Will & Grace�), Gina Gershon (TV�s �Ugly Betty�), Jeffrey Dean Morgan (TV�s �Grey�s Anatomy�), James Marsters (TV�s �Buffy the Vampire Slayer�), newcomer Nellie McKay, and Academy Award winner Kathy Bates (�Misery�).

    To help promote the movie, Warner Bros. has given me 9 movie clips and they�re below. I also interviewed a lot of the cast yesterday so you can expect those soon. Until then, enjoy the clips.
