Here's a little slower version of the Cosmopolis trailer, just in case you want to linger, and savor....
Oh my word.... Just how many times can one use the swooning emoticon?
I saw you lurking awhile ago and waited briefly to see your comments on the Cosmopolis trailer. You didn't pass out did you? Caryn? Caryn? Caryn?!
There's a cosmopolisfilm.com website that's been around for awhile, and seems pretty legit if you're looking for more information on the film. Scoot over please.....that trailer put me right on the floor beside you.
If you don't mind me asking, how old are your boys again? I'm trying to decide if my daughter should see THG. She's read the books and very much wants to see the movie, but she's also somewhat sensitive and has been known to have nightmares. I know it's PG-13, but I still think it will be pretty intense and "in-your-face", and I'm a little concerned about her reaction. I too have read a number of Nicolas Sparks books and enjoyed them. They're good romances and quick reads, even if they all seem to share the same type of star-crossed lover/tragic ending. I also read a ton of Stephen King in my time (mostly high school), and remember being pretty creeped out by some of his books, on many levels. The Stand
was always my favorite of his books, and I even enjoyed the TV miniseries years ago that wasn't too bad of an adaptation of the book.
I'm also a little more excited about the release of Cosmopolis than Bel Ami. I think Cosmopolis has the greater chance of receiving criticial acclaim and enabling Rob to finally be taken seriously as an actor by the general public, and even the Twilight-naysayers.
Congrats on purchasing your tickets to THG! I'm hoping to possibly make it to a Sunday matinee with friends, if they haven't already purchased Saturday tickets when I thought our weekend was too crazy for me to see the movie. I think my hubs would also like to see the movie (having read the books), and I kind of want to see it first before deciding if it's a little too much for my twelve-year old daughter (who has also recently read the books). She's dying to see the movie, and will tell me she's the last middle schooler on earth who doesn't see it,
, if we decide she should wait a bit.
Thanks so much for our morning pick-me-up of Eric Packer.
I'm sorry about your mom's mood swings, but guess that's just a part of it thanks to those good old hormones. My twelve-year-old daughter already seems to be working her way up to the moodiness of being a teenager, especially when dealing with me.
I remember seeing the preview for "In Time" and thought it seemed like a pretty cool premise for a movie--I think hubs would like it as well. Justin Timberlake seems to be an accomplished actor and has done very well for himself.
I'm sorry to hear about the lapband issues, but love your postive attitude and spirit. We'll keep you in our thoughts and prayers for resolution and healing on that front. That's so cool that you were able to meet Susie's daughter and her group while they're in town--what a great group of kids.
Thanks for letting me know about the availability of Fifty Shades
. Unfortunately we're probably one of the few people I know who don't have an e-reader, but I hope that changes sometime soon. I'd meant to respond to your earlier post but missed it. I also read Lady Gwynedd's The Nighingale and loved it. She certainly has a knack for those period pieces and I'm so impressed with the amount of research she must put in to enable her stories to be so historically accurate. I, too enjoy reading her author's notes for the interesting tidbits found in them, and love that the settings of her stories are almost a separate character, in and of themselves.
