  • Yeah Right

    Great interview. Interesting the 3 people he mentioned. It seems Margaret still has some influence in his life. I guess if Margaret was on the sub and MB showed up, Margaret would launch her in the torpedo shoot. lol

  • Time to ask…

    I’m grateful for your support!
    My 19 year old nephew joined their army several months ago. He’s a “Lone Soldier,” a name given to the young men and women from all over the world who choose to become Israelí soldiers.

  • Time to ask…

    During the first interview he talks about how being “Aligned with his purpose keeps him more proactive and creative, rather than negative and self destructive.”

    It’s a great one, he just looks very comfortable and grounded. I can understand how he thinks that his mom could help him make fast decisions, since according to him, she’s “good under pressure,” but how he came up with the other two?… I have no idea! LOL

  • Time to ask…

    LOL! I can just picture it, “ Gerard, look at me, NO! You’re making a weird decision!” :)

  • AJ

    Lol also another missed opportunity to say he’d take his GF with him. I mean why wouldn’t you want take your best friend with you?

  • Yeah Right

    Exactly! MB is supposedly his girlfriend AND best friend yet you do not mention her? IMO that says a lot about their relationship.

  • Wondering

    If she was on his mind he dismissed it. I like the part of him saying how his mum handles things. It speaks well for her. She sounds like a strong lady and he respects that considering she has to deal with Gerry. As flaky as he acts at times he still knows where he came from. He knows he wasn’t born with a silver spoon in his mouth.

    This Scarlett Ohara story just got lit.

    There’s a new character I’m adding to the story named John/James Tyler COOPER!!!!!

    I hope you ain’t related to him, Coopski.

    Gonna have a Butler and a Cooper…. ;) I sense a sordid love triangle.

  • Wondering

    Yes, since he even doesn’t know why he picked the two guys. I’ve seen him with Beckham at events and Gerry is into sports but I don’t know who the other guy is.

  • Sprite

    Well, I thought it was a good movie ! – expecting Gerard after calling ‘battle stations’ to say ‘raise the shields’, then I realised that it wasn’t Star Trek !

  • Wondering

    It’s funny Gerry referred to Star Trek when he was talking about how the platform worked. I wonder how long it takes to get sea legs on a sub especially with the slanting when diving.

  • Sprite
  • AJ

    Me too and I like how proud he is of his mom. Exactly you can see he respects her.

  • AJ

    Ikr. I mean he doesn’t have to gush over his GF/relationship but this was an opportunity to say something nice about her and to show what she means to you. Just like he did about his mom and while I like how he gushes over his mother, shouldn’t your GF who you spend so much time with and going on 4 years be right up there too? Like it’s okay to make out with her in front of the cameras but it’s not okay to say something nice about her? I don’t get it. I’m not saying it’s not real cause I believe it is but it just doesn’t ring true like most couples you see. At least not from what they put out there. Oh well at least the pap strolls and pda has slowed down. I thought for sure there would have been some by now. Actually I thought he would have gone directly on vacation after the promos were finished. I’m surprised he stuck around.

  • Wondering

    He said he may head to Africa this month so he may not head out anywhere else till then.

  • Sunkist

    Johnson is The Rock.

  • Sunkist

    It would have been much better if he had felt his mother taught Him how to handle these things, instead of his turning to her. At 49, she still has to correct him, “Grow up”! Throw a toddler in the lake, ” Swim”!

  • Wondering

    Thanks

  • Yeah Right

    Yes, this would have been the perfect opportunity to acknowledge MB but again he did not. Lots of missed opportunities it seems.

  • The truth is ALWAYS out there

    Truly, Morgan is neither one of those to Mr. B. As he likes to pretend for the camera for his NEEDS and whatever else THEY have him under duress for (THEIR control and his will). It’s from the lifestyle he’s lived in that world (HW). That’s why she (IT, MB) didn’t cross his mind. That was all setup for MB’s “needs” from long ago and THEIR “reasoning” (CONTROL for reasons). Mostly being forced, you should know that by now.

    When is the TRUE notion of Mr. B going to enter your feeble mind? That he is a split soul who lost his way and messed up the rest from……. Well you heard it before.

    Summary: he hated Geostorm but thinks HK is ‘actually pretty good’ and can’t figure out why it ‘bombed so hard at the box office’…

    GEOSTORM (2017) VS. HUNTER KILLER (2018)

  • Time to ask…

    LOL!

  • Dorothyfromoz

    This movie has an awful lot of competition out there. Between Bohemian Rhapsody, Crimes of Grindelwald, The Green Book, The Nutcracker and he Four Realms, The Grinch, ….. well lets just say Gerry has some pretty stiff competition for current movie goers. I’ll probably waiting for it to come out on Netflix. He really needs to start teaming up with better movie producers. They always tend to have poor timing in releasing his movies.

  • AJ

    I agree with this guy and I didn’t even see the movie yet. He makes some very good points. I wonder too how this happens. The only thing I can think of is timing? Idk.

  • Sorcina

    The movie isn’t bad but as Dorothy up there said, there are better movies as competition, I will probably go to see Bohemian Rapsody and wait for this one to appear on Netflix myself.

  • Sonia

    I reckon it was drowned out by the likes of A Star Is Born, Venom and Halloween. These movies, even though they had been out a week or two before HK came out, had so much buzz and publicity everywhere. Unfortunate timing. I honestly think HK couldn’t compete, no matter how much money they threw into marketing. Butler was the only actor promoting it, compare it to Star or Venom, with two lead actors promoting, as far as I saw. Butler isn’t a big enough draw when there are other actors competing for the attention of the general audience, IMO, esp when one of those movies is a Marvel film. Also the R rating, not sure about the other movies but this reduces the audience automatically already. HK is rated 15+ here, R in the US means you must be over 18? Or 21?

  • logik69

    He wishes he had the Rock’s career?

    Dwayne Johnson is very likeable to a large group of people obviously, male and female and a wide range of ages. I like him though I will say I have never gone to see one of his movies at the cinema. However I have seen Baller his HBO TV series so he proves he has some versatility and smarts since he created it and he has NBA friends which is another bonus.

    Into Season 4 yet he had time to make a whole lot of blockbuster movies during those past 4 years.

    .

  • Wondering

    I like The Rock too. I didn’t hear clearly when Gerry said his name that’s why I didn’t recognize it. I’m sure Gerry wishes he had that popularity but I still am shocked HK didn’t do better. There are some movies that are no where near as good as it. I don’t compare Gerry to other actors because I like different actors by what I see of them. The actors who have the pull in HW have flops too. I have enjoyed most of Gerry’s films. I hope Keeper’s show a side of Gerry we haven’t seen for a while.

  • Wondering

    Sprite you are such a happy soul. You make me smile when I read your posts.

    This is a very enjoyable music vid that Just Jared showed the other week. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4rR8jc6EPQM

  • TeaCakes

    The Rock is also pretty much scandal-free. While he’s divorced from his first wife, they are still in biz together and it’s amicable. They have a daughter and he has a new baby with his gf. That baby is adorable! I didn’t know anything about him until I googled.

    My point is that he’s not in the limelight much outside promoting his films. He keeps things quiet and maybe that’s a possible reason he’s more successful.

  • TeaCakes

    IMO, a parent can only do so much. Butler’s been on his own for like 30 years. He should know how to run his life at this point without having to consult his mother’s advice constantly.

    He’s still with Morgan so it’s my belief that his two girls get along just fine. I know no one’s seen a pic of them together but we never saw any other gf pictured with Mum either.

  • Wondering

    Thank you, what a beautiful song. That is an unusual looking violin. She is American and with that song I would have thought she might be from Scotland. It reminds me of music from there. I love violin music it seems to have a deepness to it. It can be upbeat or so heart reaching. I bet Gerry would love her music.

  • AJ

    ITAWY.

  • AJ

    Yeah that’s the only thing that makes sense. It’s too bad.

  • logik69

    Many a good movie has been lost in the crowd or hurt by distributors that don’t live up to their promises. Remember Relativity??

    There are many movies I think are fantastic that did not do well at the box office and I scratch my head. But at least there are so many avenues to see those movies to appreciate that they were good whether Netflix or Amazon Video or other streaming services, DVD or it gets picked up by the Movie Network and other cable movie channels etc.

  • Wondering

    I agree because usually if a critic likes it, I don’t. I think this one did get lost in the crowd. Ryan sucked the life out of Relativity. I hope AHF and Keeper’s get better timing and distribution. I also hope DOT2 does as well as the first.

  • Wondering

    Awwwww, you bring a lightness to this board that it sometimes needs.

  • EmJay

    I finally saw that alleged comment from “morgannyc” in regards to the premiere (I think it was you, Sonia, and Wondering discussing it 🤔). Either some troll has a lot of time on their hands or GB needs to get a new “gf/bff” – asap. 😶
