    I have a question and I’m sorry if it’s an ignorant one and I don’t mean to offend anyone either. The US Navy, dept of defence etc have been tweeting and running articles about HK for a week or so. They even said they hope it will recruit etc. Would the navy etc be so supportive of a movie that’s apparently so crap? I have personally seen a lot of positive posts on Twitter and IG about HK, from military people and civilians, and 70-80% (esp from military) are positive. Is this just a case of critics being, well, critics? I don’t live in that kind of environment so I dunno how it works but it’s baffling to me that the navy etc are pushing it so much if it’s such a bad film. Wouldn’t that be embarrassing for them? Anyway, here’s one article I read today, on a military site, which has the same message of recruitment etc.

    Navy hopes ‘Hunter Killer’ does for submariners what ‘Top Gun’ did for pilots

    I don’t know how these things work either but my guess is that it’s just critics being critics. I agree with your assessment in that if the military is supporting the film, how bad can it really be. Unless, the military is looking at it from a different perspective than critics are? Idk.

    Omg, cute and kind of scary at the same time. I wouldn’t put it past her to drug him and take him to the alter. lol.

    I haven’t found this mag for sale in my area yet. :( Sorry Sonia. Hopefully, it will come up on a fan site or something soon. I’m really curious to see what he had to say in this interview.

  • Sonia

    “I wouldn’t put it past her to drug him and take him to the alter. lol.”
    Lol, I didn’t think of it that way but yeah, bunny boilers have the potential to do that, it would be right up her street.

  • Sonia

    No worries, thanks AJ! I’m sure it will surface somewhere at some point.

  • Sonia

    That’s why I thought it’s just me not coming from a military environment or not being American, that I couldn’t understand this, that perhaps they have another point of view/angle. Oh well, let’s see what happens. :)

    #FBF Flashback to that time I sat at the round table for ‘Den of Thieves’ and interviewed @gerardbutler among several other favorites of mine!

  • Wondering

    I think what better way to use a movie for recruiting. This shows what goes on in a sub and navy seals action that the govt. doesn’t have to pay for press like this. You know they aren’t going to take potential recruits for scenic tours on a sub because even Gerry said when he was on the sub the captain told him that was off limits for whatever they were looking at for security reasons. I don’t think he would have made it to the Pentagon if they didn’t think the movie even if not all aspects are accurate wasn’t actually a good one. Gerry was surprised by the Pentagon press conference with real news reporters. So yeah he got used in a nice way for a recruiting campaign.

    After seeing that photo with her pretending to stab him with a knife, the phrase bunny boiler is so appropriate. Plus when she flashes that manic smile it does give off that vibe. Good one Sonia! Well just saying, why did she put 5 Ambiens in his packet in the first place? Like wtf? Also shows again she’s not the sharpest tool in the shed.

  • Wondering

    She had to see him taking them and why would you mix a sleeping aid with vitamins. That in itself is a scary thought. He needs to pay more attention to what he is taking not just pop something in his mouth because he thinks he can trust someone handing them to him. Pay attention Gerry. It doesn’t sound like he is going to the alter anytime soon. He also made that video of questions and being playful or not he wouldn’t have responded to them like he did.

  • AJ

    I said something similar below. Good point, why mix sleeping pills with vitamins? Even the audience was like woah when they heard 5 sleeping pills. Anyway, I can just picture him all groggy waking up and being told we are going to Gerry Butler’s wedding. lol.

  • Sonia

    I agree it’s a good recruiting platform as it shows submarine life etc. And it’s kinda ‘free’ publicity for them.
    “I don’t think he would have made it to the Pentagon if they didn’t think the movie even if not all aspects are accurate wasn’t actually a good one.”
    That’s exactly what I mean, surely they wouldn’t have paraded him in front of the media to talk about the movie/collaboration if the movie is shite. Butler actually said this in the youtube clip I just posted above, but I had that thought about that before I watched it, lol.
    By the way, I was listening to a podcast last week on this topic of military movies and the guy said that people get annoyed when movies get military lingo/equipment/protocol wrong in movies but sometimes it’s cos they have to keep things confidential and not reveal what actually happens or how processes are done etc for security reasons. I don’t know how true that is but it sounds plausible to me. I hardly watch military movies, they’re not my thing, but it was a short podcast so I listened to it.

  • Sonia

    “Well just saying, why did she put 5 Ambiens in his packet in the first place?”
    I have no answer to this that would make sense or sound nice so I’ll pass, lol.

  • Sonia

    I thought it was quite an embarrassing story to mention your gf in, to be honest. Like even if he’s joking, after four years together, you’re still joking about the fact that you’re not going to the altar with her, that even if you’ve been ‘drugged’ it woulnd’t work. Plus the fact that you make her sound dim for putting out five pills for you or that you’re even stupider to not notice the difference between ambien and your vitamins.

  • AJ

    LOL!

  • AJ

    Good Point Sonia. While I’m glad he shared a new story and it was funny at the end of the day, it doesn’t put her in the best light.

  • anon

    His answers to the thirsty tweets should make it clear as to how serious he takes this current “relationship”, lol.

  • Wondering

    I remember a movie with Nicolas Cage called Wind Talkers. It was our native Indians, I think Arapaho’s, who used their language to send messages that the Japanese could not follow, so yes I can see them using terms that they only understand. I am going tomorrow to see the movie with friends and family. I actually am surprised at who wants to see the movie because they aren’t ardent fans of Gerry like I am.

  • AJ

    Oh Sonia, I forgot to tell you, they announced the release of HK on the radio today. I heard it on my way to work. Idk why but every time I see GB on TV or hear his name on the Radio, I get excited. lol.

  • AJ

    Okay, let us know, Wondering. We want the deets.

  • Sonia

    That’s great, looking forward to your (and your friends’ and family’s) review! :)

  • Sonia

    I hope you weren’t driving and if you were, that you kept your eyes on the road, lol.
    By the way, Ariel posted about HK, returning the favour for The Angel, I guess. Nice to see friends supporting each other.

  • Wondering

    His answer to her was priceless. She seems so dim witted and teenage minded that I just wonder how he has a conversation with her. It’s his fault for letting someone like her make any medical decisions for him. Good heavens I wouldn’t be surprised if he popped one of her birth control pills ( if she is on them)thinking it is a cold pill.

    “Had a dream”…about being in HK…uh huh…yeah right. He just needed the work…frankly you can take the last 5 Gerard Butler films and he’s essentially playing the same character. Saving the day on a submarine, saving the day in a building, saving the day at a meteor watch room….whatever. So forgettable…just like Geostorm..and..well I forget the other films.

  • Sonia

    Well, that’s all the fun over for now. Next up will probably be skanky Halloween parties, ‘romantic’ birthday celebrations with his ‘longtime gf’, and a whole lot of PDA-filled-or-looking-angry pap strolls to come over the next couple of months. Let’s hope we get some stuff when he goes to Africa for Mary’s Meals in November and that he does some promo for Keepers and HTTYD3 by January.

  • AJ

    LOL! Ahhh, that’s nice. Yes it is.

  • AJ

    :( I know. So sad. Exactly!

  • Wondering

    Ambien is a prescription drug so why would you take it out of its original bottle. This is the scary part because when you travel you can carry your meds with you.

    There is a pic with Ariel and Vica and one of the comment is “now that is what a beautiful couple looks like”. She has on a cute sexy, classy red dress. Not trying to shove any body parts out there. What a difference than what Gerry has.

  • Data Miner

    Someone gave Gerry Ambien?

    *facepalm*

  • Data Miner

    That could have killed him. That’s an overdose.

    -_-

  • Data Miner

    He did that, didn’t he?

  • Data Miner

    Navajo. :)

  • Data Miner

    He just gave us all an idea. I think he WANTS someone to drug him into marriage. Freudian slipsky.
