    @lolita: Can’t even comment on that one!!…

  • LLL

    @meatpuppet: “don’t you??” To whom are you directing this question?

  • gossiphound

    @LLL: The reality is LLL even the die hardest of GB fans agree that the Bounty Hunter is not his best movie by far or even admit that is probably one of his worst efforts. Given romcom is a genre that is very predictable anyway there seems to be nothing original here and for some reason there is no real chemistry between Butler and Aniston AND the way the characters are written you really don’t like them so it’s tough to even care what happens to them. Certainly of all the romcoms he has done, this is bottom of the list. It is not unbearable to watch IMO but it’s not something you would grab to watch again. Whereas I can’t watch RocknRolla enough times.

    The accent thing has me laughing today because on telly here last night I happened to find “Butterfly on a Wheel” playing, and watched it only to feel myself sliding off the sofa cringing every time Pierce Brosnan opened his mouth to talk in that ridiculous Irish accent. Why couldn’t he have spoken in his normal voice? I didn’t even notice Gerry’s accent because I was too busy blocking my ears with cotton wool. I’ve seen the movie before but just forgot how spectacularly bad Pierce’s accent is in it…he makes Gerry’s character in PSILY sound positively native.

  • gossiphound

    Um Pierce Brosnan is Irish.

  • meatpuppet

    @gossiphound:
    There is never any chemistry between the Buttfµck and his co-stars. Maybe Thandie Newton. But that’s it.
    Katherine heigl = none
    HIlary Swank = nil
    Angelina Jolie = nyet
    Jennipoop Analfart = nada
    Thandie Newton = a tad
    .
    He can’t find his stride with a female opposite him.
    The dudes in 300 beside him – he was perfect.
    Your thoughts?

    @gossiphound:
    Ignore the people who don’t know better. lol

  • gossiphound

    Um Pierce Brosnan is Irish. He was born in Ireland and moved to England at a young age. One has always been able to hear tinges of the Irish in his accent when he gives interviews and I actually thoughtit was great to hear Pierce use his Irish accent for a change in Shattered/BOTW.

    Sad lot!

  • Mellifera

    @gossiphound: The accent Pierce is using in BOAW is to me at least, a clearly Northern Irish accent. And like you said, he’s from Ireland, not Northern Ireland. And its obvious he is having to put it on, it doesn’t flow naturally. Like I said, he could have used his normal speaking voice, with the ‘tinges of Irish’ you mentioned.
    I am born and bred in New Zealand but do not speak with an accent like the rest of my country due to parental upbringing and periods of living overseas. It would be like me acting in a NZ film and having to put on a stereotypical NZ accent which would sound false, unnatural.
    In my opinion its clear Pierce is speaking in an affected accent which makes it uncomfortable to listen to.

  • Mellifera

    I should also mention that as someone who has grown up around many different Irish and Northern Irish accents in my life perhaps I am more critical than others who have not, might be. For example, I watched The Town and marvelled at Jeremy Renner’s Boston accent because he is not a Bostonian. I also however watched Pete Postlethwaite and while I enjoyed his acting, did not enjoy his accent as it did not sound natural. Perhaps there are Bostonians out there who thought Renner’s accent was terrible, I would not know as I don’t know the intonations and flows of that accent.

  • gossiphound

    @meatpuppet: I would disagree with some of your opinions.

    I thought there was chemistry between Heigl and Butler and I have noted many critics of Heigl’s movies since TUT have noted the same because there is definitely no chemistry with Kucher and Duhamel. I don’t understand why you would make an expensive movie unless the chemistry or lack thereof between the co-stars was self-evident from the beginning. All you have to do is film one test scene. Sometimes chemistry in real life doesn’t translate on the screen. The camera is odd that way. Most actors will tell you that sex scenes are anything but sexy in the execution.

    The steamingest chemistry IMO was with Lena Headey – that one scene in 300, rowr. I think that is why people were glomming onto the rumour Gerry might be in Game of Thrones.

    Dear Frankie, all the elements were there including a believable chemistry with Emily Mortimer. And yes with Thandie for sure. Or at least it came across the screen. I actually like PS I Love You so I guess on that level it worked for me and the millions of other people who love that movie.

    I admit I thought it would be more smoldering with Jolie but I personally think she is 1. not as great an actress as her tabloid attention and her paycheques would suggest and 2. she generally strikes me as COLD – her chemistry is just as hit and miss in her films as you claim with Gerard. I mean her and Depp, nada.

    So it just proves it takes more than putting pretty actors and actresses together to get chemistry and sometimes the movies where the chemistry smolders, it happens between the most unlikely pair. And then that’s a delight.

  • Mellifera

    @CAPTAIN OBVIOUS: I have to agree with him saying Keira Knightly’s not sexy, and Emma Watson well maybe we all think of her as being very young from the Potter films. Too young to be sexy! But I think Gemma Arterton is gorgeous and has sex appeal. If I was that way inclined I’d be crushing on Gemma.

    Irish women and women of Irish descent are way UGLIER and way less sexy than British women.

    GOOD MORNING a todos .Les envio una cancion de mi pais hay muchas que les he enviado,esta me gusta mucho ,un vals criollo y dice asi…….Cansado de llamarte,con mi alma destrozada,comprendo que no vienes,porque no quiere Dios.Y al ver que inutilmente,te envio mis palabras llorando mi guitarra,se deja oir su voz….llora guitarra….porque eres mi voz de dolor…grita de nuevo su nombre ..si no te escucho,y dile ,que aun la quiero,que aun espero que vuelva,que si no viene mi amor no tiene consuelo,que solitario sin su cariño me muero.Guitarra,tu que interpretas en tu vibrar mi quebranto,tu que recibes en tu madero mi llanto,llora conmigo si no la vieras volver…….realmente cuando escucho esta cancion me pongo a lllorar,que hermosa letra,que sentimiento y combinado con el sonido de la guitarra peruana ,la persona que la canta con pasion,es bello,bello,bello…cuando llora mi guitarra…..amorcito,espero que tengas un bonito domingo y me despido escuchando esta melodia muchos besos……adios.

    @LLL, thanks for the chat last night, enjoyed it.
    Does anyone know when HTTYD2 will be starting. Can you imagine trying to keep the Scottish accent for that and then changing back to some other accent if by chance he is doing more than one movie at a time. Remember it was said he was upset because he felt he did not sound Scottish enough in HTTYD. Trying to remember your lines and keeping an accent and responding to the emotions needed for the scene must be mind boggling. Great to see he can handle it all.

  • N.

    Michelle’s character, Sam’s wife, is not believable IMO. She appears very preachy and makes me wonder why she stays with Sam, the biker, druggie, drug dealer, a bad person all around.

    I love the song in the trailer, emotional and uplifting, very fitting to the scenes.

  • Manny

    Good morning JJers!
    .
    Saw The Help last night. One of the best movies I have seen in a long time…
    .
    No news on Butler I see… Has he recovered from the wedding the other day yet???
    .
    So I read he was spotted on the Warner Bros lot with Alan drinking Coke and smoking. I wonder what was up, a meeting or something? Is Warner Bro the studio behind Hunter Killer?

  • Enough Already

    @Manny: When was he spotted drinking Coke and smoking?? Just wondering because Dargabriel said he quit his Coke and smoking habit. =)

  • Latesummer’s Eve

    I don’t mind the Cokes so much but I was so hoping he was off the cigs! Say it ain’t so!

  • dargabriel

    There is absolutely no proof of him smoking or drinking a coke, verifiy? He’s not its not true, made up lies, show a picture ppl, there are so many lies on here. Photos ppl proof. I know he’s not. Peace and light daegabriel

  • Manny

    @Enough Already:
    .
    Yeah and Dar is twin flame. *snort*

    @Latesummer’s Eve:
    .
    Did you guys see it earlier in the week? I’ve been so busy with work I thought it would have been posted here… it was on Twitter.
    .
    Is Warner behind Hunter Killer?
    .
    I’m disappointed too Eve. Was hoping it was a phase but it seems to be a companion now. :(

  • Latesummer’s Eve

    @N.:

    I agree that she doesn’t seem to be rough enough of a character to play the wife of Childers but I’ll reserve my opinion until I’ve seen the actual movie. Trailers can be deceiving. In fact, when I saw “The Bridesmaids” the scene in the trailer where the bride fell down in the street was cut out of the movie! I think some of the trailers are made before the final editing is done.

  • gossiphound

    @N.: The problem with your critique, besides the fact you are basing it on a two minute trailer, is that this is based on real life characters and guess what the real Lynn is still with Sam after everything.

  • Enough Already

    @Latesummer’s Eve: Haven’t seen him with a cigarette in any pics lately, so he may have chucked that habit, but I think he’s been a Coke drinker for a long time, nothing wrong with that really. We see him with his Starbucks more often than a Coke anyway.

  • Manny

    @dargabriel:
    .
    It was posted by someone who worked at the commissary there. Why would they lie??? The law says you have to smoke outside which is where he was spotted on the lot.
    .
    I guess you need to go back and check your Ouija board again…

  • dargabriel

    It is a complete shame, that most of you gossip hounds, jump on info like a bitch in heat, yet there are no photos of him with a cancer stick in his hand or a rotting cola, now run with it, as you all do, but he has not shown you this in photos. So peace to your very vonerable minds,you ought to try tuning into the soul and wishing Gerard wellness and happiness, instead of jumping on the band wagon, it’s below you. Dargabriel

  • Manny

    @dargabriel:
    .
    Awwww Dar where is your light???? Enlightened use language like that??? Meltdown at Dar’s table…
    .
    See it is a lot easier to believe someone who was excited to see a celebrity in person than a crazy stalker who says his soul speaks to her. commissary dude has my vote.
    .
    Thanks for proving you are the fraud we all know you to be. :)

  • Latesummer’s Eve

    @Manny:

    Never saw that tweet. Relativity is behind Hunter Killer. Don’t know about Warner’s involvement.

  • Latesummer’s Eve

    @Enough Already:

    After all the flack he got about the cigs, I hope it was just a temporary thing but Butler is good at hiding things too when he makes the effort even though being out in an open area isn’t exactly trying to hide it. He’ll be one breathless surfer dude if he keeps it up! He’s at the age for things like emphysema to set in on him and that’s irreversable! It really concerns me.

  • Maggie P.U.

    @276 Manny… you are right on the whole enchilada…had breakfast with some peeps and their peeps and different subject matter was in the convos…. And out of the blue… I was downing my 4th 20oz of coke in a hour and one of the guys says “Damn…. you are about as bad as Gerry Butler is with his cokes…” I said he quit I cant LOL and several peeps spoke up and said BS he still sucks them down and he has been smoking a couple of times especially recently.. *this was this morning.. and I was here for lunch because of legal meetings during the week. No, he is still smoking and drinking cokes. Not chain or power smoking though…. just to calm the nerves….

    Peace.

    What is a “vonerable mind”?

    @Maggie P.U.:
    .
    Thanks for the update Mags. Wasn’t he carrying a Coke in one of the recent photos on here??? Fan piccie in Scotland???
    .
    I don’t know why Dar thinks she knows squat when the piccies and proof are everywhere and even technically challenged peeps like myself can find them. :)

  • dargabriel

    It’s all bull, whatever your minds want to think,as I’ve said run with it. Gerard does not need any vices to calm his nerves, he needs nothing, again show photos of this, there have been absolutely none. I know this to be true. What I find on this perticular website is, some ppl on here just want the worst for Gerard and want to believe the worst, its so shady and dark, no wonder why other Gerard websites don’t want the likes of you. The term jump on it like a bitch in heat, is exactally true, a bit harsh but true. Proof is in photos, there are none, just ppl saying cruel and negative things,because they want to believe, I really hope and pray some of you wake up to what’s real, fast. Dargabriel

  • Latesummer’s Eve

    @Maggie P.U.:

    “Not chain or power smoking though…. just to calm the nerves….”

    **

    What the heck is “power smoking”? It’s not a good way to calm nerves but what has he got to be so nervous about again? He seemed calmer and happier lately like whatever was bugging him let up. This is like we’re back a few weeks ago.
    -
    Maggie, what circles do you run in that you know this? You’re not another one these, you know who’s around here are you?
    -
    I’ll hold off on being totally upset with him until I actually see evidence of it! Tweets aren’t always reliable and pictures are.

  • Enough Already

    @dargabriel: Dar, why are you saying that the people here want the worst for Gerry? Quite the contrary. From the last few posts, it seems like there is more worry about him smoking again. You can’t get upset because something is said that contradicts one of your predictions. What are you going to do if the paps happen to catch him with a coke or a cigarette? Are you going to get angry and argue that the pics are old or we photoshopped the pics or what? Again, you are the one becoming angry, defensive and negative.

  • dargabriel

    @Latesummer’s Eve: trust in Gerard he’s not putting anything unhealthy into his body, he is good and I trust in him, he is not smoking, I promise this, I do believe in him. As I’ve said in the past, he is very healthy, he gets winded, he gets nervous on live interviews, its very cute, but not because he’s smoking, he does get anxious/anxiety from shyness, but trust he is very healthy and happy. Love,dargabriel

  • Maggie P.U.

    @294…Late Evie…Power smoking is like I did in the Marines…lite up and finish…lite up again…. Iwas doing more than 2-3 packs a day…nerves job stress etc….

    Circles…I am 4-5 blocks from one of the Warner Brothers buildings. There are 3 tenants who are either production coordinators, personal assistants or studio schedulers….. they share stories of their encounters…One, Melanie… mind you she is from Iowa so she is right they love potato salad…she said she grabbed some from lunch and saw Adrian Brodie (sp) get up from his group and come over and ask her what she had and did she have enough…… just passing by comments….. Josh…major smoker says it is a running joke on the lots to see who smokes the most…. and Gerry was one of them who smokes but he is not as bad as he was, Brad Pitt was another one…….. Definitley not like one of those especially the one and only. Just clarifying. And the convos do not hash on celebs…. just doing the “norm” like they did with me in my drinking the cokes I did…. and I still am BTW I have had 9 since 7 this morning my time… can’t break the habit.

    Have a great day.

    Peace.

  • Enough Already

    @Maggie P.U.: You’ve had NINE cokes since this morning?? Good lord, you must be flying. LOL

  • Maggie P.U.

    @297…forgot to add…just for example on how the WB and NBC buildings are around here…. they are not as wide open and accessable as in Hollywood itself…. so paps can not get in and out as they can over in the LA and HW areas…. pics are not easy to get here…. (and not just of celebs either-even the News people have a hard time getting certain pics on stories…. have to have access and so forth).

    Peace.

    @298… EA-yeah…. wound up….start classes Wednesday and Famil Law is one and I have 2 depositions to prepare..Each for different issues. So yeah LOL I am kinda moving faster than usual…

    Least I do not do the coffee grounds with them (use to take a scoop of coffee grounds, put it in my mouth then a swallow of coke and down both at the same time to stay up especially for finals and when I had duty….

    Peace.
