    Translation of the song Mother and Child (not perfect but understandable) :lol:

    Daughter:
    mommy mommy,is the earth is round?)
    if it is true, where is the blue color bird in the world?
    every day I am here waiting for the blue bird, in crying.
    What will happen when the sun fall into the sea?
    Why the sky is so blue in the morning?
    Why I can’t fly away in the wind?
    and why mommy, you are crying while listening to me?

    Mom :
    my child, my child, it is true that the earth is round and I had been looking for a blue bird everywhere long time ago too. Just like you, I cried by reaching my two arms out.
    But for you, I am sure that one good day, he will come
    don’t be afraid, the sun will not die under the dunes
    the sun is gone in order to offer you beautiful moonlight
    and why you would like to fly away in the wind? I have wanted (to fly in the wind) too, and now I have grey hair.

    Daughter:
    mommy, don’t cry anymore because the earth is round. To offer you a blue bird, I am going to run all over the world

    Mom :
    Don’t go elsewhere my daughter, the blue bird is here, you’ll find it in your heart.

    Daughter :
    mommy,If it is true, I’ll go to the sun to get you a piece of the sky.

    Mom :
    My child, you’ll go even further than the dailight, the blue bird is LOVE, LOVE.

    ‘Button’ remains on top overseas
    ‘Case’ sews up $118.6 million in foreign grosses
    By DAVE MCNARY

    The Curious Case of Benjamin Button” remained ruler of the international box office for the second consecutive weekend with $31 million in 50 markets.

    “Button” has sewn up $118.6 million in foreign grosses — less than $4 million from matching the domestic total — with Warner Bros. taking full advantage of the romancer’s 13 Oscar nominations plus Brad Pitt’s star power outside the United States.

    The pricey “Button” scored first-place launches of $4.6 million in Italy and $2 million in South Korea. Holdover biz stayed solid in the second frame for major markets as France declined 17% to $4.6 million; Spain was off 36% to $3.3 million; Japan slid only 11% to $3.1 million; and Brit takings decreased just 21% to $2.6 million.

    ‘Benjamin Button’ stays on top overseas
    Oscar contender’s international gross passes $118 mil

    By Frank Segers

    Feb 15, 2009, 04:26 PM ET

    “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button”
    Lavished with 13 Oscar nominations, Warner Bros.’ “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button” is already showing considerable pre-Academy Awards strength on the international circuit, claiming the No. 1 boxoffice spot for the second consecutive weekend with an estimated $31 million from about 5,990 screens in 53 markets.

    The David Fincher-directed film with Brad Pitt was propelled by first place debuts in Italy ($4.6 million from 505 screens), South Korea ($2 million from 212 sites) and Taiwan ($1 million from just 105 screens).

    A No. 1 Paris finish portends a France tally of $4.6 million from 566 screens in “Button’s” second frame in the market, while in Spain it held the No. 1 spot with $3.3 million from 461 sites. A first-place finish in Japan ($3.1 million from 427 screens) and a muscular holdover in the U.K. ($2.6 million from 474 situations) helped the weekend tally.

    So far, “Button” has grossed $118.6 million overseas.

    Changeling on DVD

    Movies on DVD: ‘Changeling’ gains from Angelina Jolie’s heart

    Roger Moore | Sentinel Movie Critic
    February 15, 2009

    Angelina Jolie is up for a best actress Oscar, so you’d best hit the video store Tuesday to check out her nominated performance in Changeling.

    Based on a true story, Clint Eastwood’s film has Jolie playing a Depression-era single mom in Los Angeles whose young son disappeared. Months later, a boy turns up and the media rejoice in the reunion that our intrepid LAPD made happen.

    But mom says he’s not her boy. And the more she protests, the more the powerful police department gripes that she’s “crazy.” They even have her locked up.

    It’s not Eastwood’s most graceful film, but the victim-of-the-state nature of the story and Jolie’s heartfelt performance make it work.

I just don’t want the other female star to win, I hate her ego. Brad & Angie are winners already, having each other & having their 6 kids around that’s good enough as winners.

    Ninth Ward, The Movie: How To Really Rebuild New Orleans
    Nate Berg
    Sun, 02/08/2009 – 09:29

    New Orleans is still struggling, especially its hard-hit Lower Ninth Ward. The economic recession has been bad news for development all over the world, and it’s really not helping things down in New Orleans. The federal government’s broke, states are cutting costs, and local government is practically bankrupt. But even in tough times, there is one place where business always seems to be good and money’s always flowing: the movie industry. Maybe New Orleans should look to Hollywood as a means to recovery. It has the money, it has the incentive, and it’s proven that it actually has the power to make it happen.

    Movies can impact the real world, even in tangible ways. The 2008 film “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button” successfully restored a historic home more than 100 years old in New Orleans so it could be used as a movie set. Much of the credit for the preservation is due to the film’s director, David Fincher, and its leading actor, Brad Pitt, now famous for his architectural affinities and interest in New Orleans. The home they restored for the film is now on the market for $2.85 million.

    This is an idea that other filmmakers should look to emulate. Houses and small set areas are ideal for this sort of preservation. But why stop there?

    With all the millions of dollars that get invested into single Hollywood movies, there is a great potential to build on the example of Fincher and Pitt and make movie that has a positive impact on a physical space.

    New Orleans’ Ninth Ward is an obvious opportunity for a film that could connect with people and extend that connection out into the physical realm of the built environment. The devastation of Hurricane Katrina, the federal government’s lax response and the slow-to-recover city as a whole are still fresh in the minds of many Americans. Far more than a local news story, New Orleans struggles are a national (if not international) concern. S

    An this my dear is why Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are MEGA INTERNATIONAL STARS
    -
    Compare this to any movie Reese Whiterspoon has ever made….the most she ever gained internationally is $66,919,481 for ‘Walk the Line”
    -
    That’s why she can’t be in the top three female in the FORBES list…all three females who have domestic and international clout and recognition.

    Witherspoon “dying to do” action film

    Reese Witherspoon has revealed that she is “dying to do” an action film, citing Angelina Jolie as her inspiration.

    The actress claimed that she would even go to the gym to build up the physical strength needed for an all-action role.

    Bang Media quotes her as saying: “I would like to do an action movie. I love to watch Angelina Jolie in movies like Mr. and Mrs. Smith.

    “I think movies where women have great strength and character are interesting. I’m dying to do one.”

    The mother-of-two recently revealed that her children sometimes find her embarrassing.

    Oscar’s best-dressed friends: The most memorable fashion winners and losers

    This Marc Bouwer white satin gown, worn by Angelina Jolie to the Oscars in 2004, was worthy of Jean Harlow and served as a reminder to any young pretender that Jolie, then as now, is Probably The Most Beautiful Woman In The World.

    Angelina Jolie 2004

    La Jolie is surprising for the fact that she rarely flaunts her undeniably spectacular credentials when appearing on the red carpet, or indeed anywhere else. She recently, of course, appeared at the SAG Awards in a back-to-front Max Azria design that was more of blue cassock than scene-stealing gown. This Marc Bouwer white satin gown, worn by the actress to the Oscars in 2004, was the exception that proves the rule. Worthy of Jean Harlow, it served as a reminder to any young pretender that Jolie, then as now, is Probably The Most Beautiful Woman In The World. “Who are you with tonight?” asked one red-carpet hack. “I’m alone,” she replied. A better dress for a woman on the razzle has yet to be seen.

    Benjamin Button scores another stunning weekend for WBPI
    Jeremy Kay in Los Angeles
    15 Feb 2009 23:38

    ******If there were any doubts that The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button lacked the momentum to replicate its impressive North American success overseas those were dispelled at the weekend as David Fincher’s Oscar-nominated drama stayed ahead of the Hollywood pack and soared past $100m with another dominant display.******

    An estimated $31m weekend hoisted the Warner Bros Pictures International release to $118.6m and it will be only a matter of days now before the picture surges past the $122.2m domestic tally and the $250m global mark.

    The picture opened top in Italy on $4.6m from 505 screens, which was enough to grab 36% of the top five market share. There were two further number one debuts as The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button took $2m from 212 in South Korea and $1m from 105 in Taiwan including previews, a result that accounted for 46% of the top five market share.

    Holdover business was muscular, led by a heartening $4.6m from 566 in the second weekend in France following a 17% slip that saw the picture stay top in Paris as the running total climbed to $11.3m. The drama stayed top in its second weekend in Spain on $3.3m from 461 for $9.1m and climbed to number one in its second weekend in Japan on $3.1m from 427 for $11.7m.

    In the second weekend in the UK $2.6m from 474 sites saw the picture rank fourth with a $7m tally, while Germany delivered a third consecutive number one weekend as $2.5m from 645 boosted the cumulative score to $13.8m. Elsewhere the latest tallies show $11m in Australia, $6.4m in Mexico and $6m in Brazil.

    Carola Long: Pitt’s good looks were only enhanced by the Forties fighterpilot facial hair

    Ready To Wear

    Monday, 16 February 2009

    Every Hollywood star needs a mission, and Brad Pitt’s is surely worthy of a UN ambassadorship. His “goal” is to bring moustaches back in fashion, he said recently while sporting one for a role in the Quentin Tarantino Second World War film ‘Inglourious Basterds’, adding: “I don’t think ‘staches are respected enough.”

    And lo, Brad’s dream – or the nightmare of anyone still haunted by those episodes of ‘EastEnders’ in which Ian Beale grew a moustache resembling a greasy weasel, to the collective derision of Albert Square – is becoming a reality. The moustache is in the hairy throes of a comeback.

    This might not be as terrifying as it sounds. I got a fairly close-up look at a mustachioed Pitt on the red carpet for the Baftas, and to my surprise his well-documented good looks were only enhanced by the Forties fighter-pilot facial hair. In fact, the ‘tache looked so dashing that I found myself spontaneously yelling “Get out of the flipping (not actual word used) way!” to someone who was blocking my view.

    Oscars new look;

    Hugh Jackman’s description of the staging of this year’s Oscar broadcast:

    The look of the theater is very different. It’s more like the nightclub of your dreams. It’s very intimate. … It’s got to be a lot closer. It’s been a little austere in the past. You know, there’s that stage, the host being up above the stalls, looking down at everybody. … But this is a lot more intimate. It’s still spectacular, being in the Kodak Theatre. But it’s a real difference in the way things are laid out.

    From the NYTimes:

    Although the specific plans are heavily under wraps, the physical relationships of the audience to the stage, and the stars to one another, are being radically altered. The biggest change involves reimagining some of the seating arrangements in concert with redesigning the landscape of the stage, including a new, curvaceous thrust. The novel new topography will allow more interesting camera work and more varied and streamlined entrances and exits. “It’s the nominees’ and performers’ night, and David has physicalized that idea,” Mr. Condon said. “It’s not putting people in a traditional theater, where you’re looking at the back of someone’s head.”

    OT,

    I just need to talk out loud about something, so just bear with me. Earlier today I was talking to a cousin of mine in London….we hadn’t spoken in a few years, so we were catching up with our lives, and to say she shocked me with what’s going on with her life is an understatement. When I called, a man answered the phone, so I laughingly ask if she had gotten married, or was living with someone. She promptly told me no, to the man, but she is living with her partner, a woman. Apparently, although she has primarily dated men, this is not her first lesbian relationship. So of course, I asked if she is bi, and she said yes, because she is still attracted to men, but she is in love with this woman, and is in a wonderful, loving relationship.

    After I had gotten over the shock, I realised I was not that surprised, and probably would have figured it out if I had paid more attention. She says they have no plans to marry right now, because although my aunt and her partner’s parents have accepted the relationship, marriage might be a bit too much at this point. Whatever that means.

    Well, sorry about all that, I suppose I just wanted to put it down on paper in order to wrap my mind around it. Back to the business of the JPs. :lol:

    I remember watching the film I think you are talking about; Freeway. I enjoyed it a lot. It wasn’t quite an action film but she was like a white trash modern day kick-ass Little Red Riding Hood.

    Yeah, that’s the movie. RW’s overbite & lisp bugs the hell out of me so I’ve done my best to avoid her movies…

    Well, the Hag hasn’t been invited to meet the twins, I don’t care what the tabloids say. But someone else has.

    So let’s say Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie invite you over to meet their infant twins, Knox and Vivienne. It could well be the most coveted offer in Hollywood. And Taraji P. Henson knows it.
    .
    “I’ve been so busy and haven’t had the chance to do that yet,” says Henson, who plays Pitt’s adoptive mother in The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.

    [Other tidbits from the article]
    .
    Acting alongside one of the most famous actors on the planet sure didn’t intimate her. She jokingly calls Pitt “the best son a mother could want.” She met Jolie and most of their brood. And Pitt has hung out with her son, Marcel, 14. Her fellow nominee, she says, is “just a regular guy.”

    “Three of my very best girlfriends flew into town and wanted to meet Brad Pitt. So I was like, ‘Brad, come over. My girlfriends are going crazy over you.’ He comes over, and he’s so cool. He has a way of being very warm and making people feel welcome.”

    It’s hard to imagine anyone being warmer or friendlier to strangers than Henson. She sees elements of herself in Queenie, who adores and accepts her unconventional child unconditionally.

    “I am a mom in real life,” she says. “Once a mom, always a mom. I try to mother my friends. It’s like riding a bike: You never forget how to be a mom.”

    Marcel is the center of Henson’s world. The single mom drives him to basketball games and makes sure he has a full belly, always.

    “My son gets breakfast every morning. I don’t buy cereal. Sometimes he wants scrambled eggs. Sometimes he’ll have bacon. Or pancakes. He gets home-cooked meals every day,” she says. “Even if I have a 5 a.m. call, I’ll cook and leave his food in the microwave before I leave. You expect a child to succeed and do well in school, but how are they going to do that if they have no brain food?”

    ^^^^Sorry for the rambling post above. :lol:. I also asked my cousin about the UK tabs, and how despicable they are. She said no one with any common sense believes them. However, I forgot to ask her which mags are tabs.

    Just one more point re her new love, I suppose some people are capable of being open to love, no matter the gender, and she does seem very happy. What else can we hope for in life except love right?

    #343,

    PT,

    My gripe with RW is that she is sooo uptight. That woman is wound so tightly, I dont know if she even knows how to relax. I don’t condone her husband cheating on her, but the woman seems as if she can take all the joy out of living, or as John Smith said, “there’s no air around you”.

    I don’t like Oscar new look. Old one is the academy look.

    I just got home from a Earth Wind and Fire performance. Those guys are really good and Philip Bailey, the lead singer, can still hit those high notes. I haven’t danced like that in a long while!

    It’s great to see TCCOBB doing so well around the world. It’s not surprising it has appeal to so many cultures since the theme is universal and the story is timeless. I’m hoping it gets Best Picture.

    Did anyone else see that story last week about the 13 year-old British boy who’d become a father? The mother was 15. Well…hats off to the NOTW. THIS is what British tabloids do best – homegrown craziness…now there are about half a dozen other boys who say they could be the baby’s father because the 15 y.o. mother is a great big ho…amazing shite…better than anything the tabs can make up…
