    @CLINIQUA: Which reminds me. Wher is her “bought and paid for” fiance? Still no mention of who’s making her wedding dress who designed her ring, and we have heard absolutely nothing from him or his folks about how much they love her. Remember now, everybody loves her and “they” couldn’t print fast enough how much Jane Pitt loved her. LOL!

  • well

    Brad’s movies are quality.

    @Ⱦamsin:Getting a little scared now, aren’t you, the good reviews from the film critics that have actually seen the movie, and now the regular movie goers all all loving it, that has to be worrying you.

  • Ⱦamsin

    @lucy: Of course it’s worrying me, that’s why I had to change the subject.

  • a lurker

    Looks like LA screening is for celebs, New Jersey screening is for fans. and Brad looks gorgeous.

  • lucy

    @Go Figure!:Hey, that’s right, where are the photo ops with the midget’s parents, all we’ve seen is the midget and his baby step-brother doing the pap stroll, or were they looking for drugs, or both.

  • WWZ

    trolls are getting very scared now that people who have actually seen the movie like it

  • Ⱦamsin

    Correction/ 10% come from Passing Poop discussing what she had for dinner or the next tennis match.

    Stalker @ 05/23/2013 at 12:35 am

    Ah loons, always missing the point. I’m on topic discussing your amoral vvhory idols, stalker. You mindless horshippers on the other hand, continue to increase JA’s media presence every time you mention her, her products and movies, even when you think you’re making fun of her. I’m pretty sure your idols are thrilled about how much free publicity you give her, even when you’re trolling her threads.. LOL.

  • lylian

    LOL! This special screening for fans wasn’t just for fans – it was for fellow actors and other celebrities. Well played Brad.

  • Ⱦamsin

    @Ⱦamsin: What do you think female first does for the JP’s then, LOL. Think about it…Female First haz thousands of threads about the JP’s, so imagine how much free publicity they are getting.

    So world war z was pretty wonderful – very intense. And Brad Pitt introduced it, which was kind of him. http://yfrog.com/ocaljekuj

  • Ⱦamsin

    Poor Clooniqua forgets that she worships an average height stoner who wears lifts even when riding his custom toy bike, as well as hair extensions (as we could see from the photo shot ) that resembles his ex-wife’s iconic hairstyle.

    Ah but I bet that Clooniqua doesn’t mention Pitty’s vertical challenge, lengendary bad body odor, and his days as Thom Racina’s pool boy in her fan fiction. Why of course not, that’s actually the truth, and which loon would ever want to hear that? ROTFLMAOOOO.

  • WWZ

    @Ⱦamsin:
    too bad the people who have actually seen Brad Pitt thinks he’s hot, case in point the ladies that were going crazy over him tonight on twitter and too bad people who have actually seen WWZ thinks its a great movie. Even celebs came out to see it

  • Zenith

    Brad looks so good. He is amazing.

  • tweet

    Mike Sampson ‏@mjsamps now

    So after all that fuss, ‘World War Z’ turned out to be a surprisingly effective zombie thriller.

  • Ⱦamsin

    @Ⱦamsin: Poor tammy forgets his idol is dating a midget man who is almost bald. He wears the same clothing from winter to summer. His pants are so tight, that the little sperm he has left is diminishing.The poor old gigolo claims he is a writer, but he hasn’t written anything in 10 years. Nobody knew who he was, until E! did an article about “getting to know sguigs.” He lived in a roach infested apartment in the ghettos of New York until he found his sugar mama on the movie set of Wanderbust. He left Heidi once the rich hag decided she would date him. Heidi was devastated that the balding midget left her for another woman.

  • plz

    Can fans just ignore the stupid resident troll.
    So many good news tonight for WWZ, amazing reviews from celebs and audience. Good job Brad.

    Brad’s getting that Marlon Brando fat look. That’s okay by me; he seems pleasant enough. meh…

    Scott Collura ‏@ScottIGN now

    World War Z: a big, solid zombie movie. Makes up for in scope what it lacks in blood.

    “Only God Forgives” is getting bad reviews and “World War Z” is getting good early buzz. Did I just wake up in an alternate universe?

  • lucy

    I read that this was the first fan screening for WWZ, I can see why Brad would want to be there. Lucky fans that got to see Mr Sexy in person, and no, he does not look like a fat Marlon Brando.

    So, was World War Z exactly like the book? No, but I felt it captured much of the flavor, and man, does it have some intense sequences.
