This time no party, no drinking, so no actual hangover. But the wolf pack hit the road to help Alan after the death of his father, it was always going to go wrong.
So two days after I have seen Silver Linings Playbook and it is still on my mind, I actually used the phrase silver lining today after something changed with work and I have to do something else in the morning. But I worked out my silver lining for that, but if I had not just seen this film I probably wouldn’t have used that phrase! So the point of this blog post? Well just to show that films really can have a big impact on your thinking, they can help you get a clear perspective for something and really change your mindset about life.
A film taking a look into how mental health can affect someones life and those around them. But when you accept that everything doesn’t go to plan and start focusing on the silver lining of a situation you might just be able to turn your life around, that is something Pat is trying to do since returning home from a stint in a mental institution.
The wolfpack is back for a second time, when they all head to Thailand for Stu’s wedding to Lauren. But can they all keep out of trouble a couple of days before the wedding? Of course not, when Alan is involved and they end up in Bangkok.
Quite a lot of posters have now been released for the up and coming (and much talked about) Hangover Part II. Which see’s the guys head to Thailand, and I am sure we can start to imagine all of the trouble they are going to find themselves in!
The more I watch Bradley Cooper the more I like him. This film looks like it has an interesting concept into taking a drug, it has to end badly. Looking forward to this one!
The first poster has been released for this summers movie version of the A-Team. Apparently there is no plan b!
Intertwining couples and singles in Los Angeles break-up and make-up based on the pressures and expectations of Valentine’s Day. Kinda like Love Actually but instead of Christmas and London . . . Valentine’s Day and LA.
The awards which like to honour the worst films of the year! Yes its all just a bit of fun and to laugh at really. But the Razzie nominations were released last night, yes the day before the Oscar nominations are due out. Interesting as Sandra Bullock could end up as the best and worst actress of the year . . . you see what they have done there.
They even have worst movie, actor and actress of the decade awards to give out.
What do you make of the Razzies?
Check out the nominations
Four guys go to Vegas for a stag party two days before the wedding. What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas . . . but can any of them actually remember what happened in Vegas? Well thats partly the problem they have when they cannot find the groom. So they must backtrack and attempt to figure out what exactly they done the night before.
As I have just posted the winners of the 2010 Critics Choice awards I thought I would post some pictures from the event. Some nice dresses already and more to come Sunday at the Golden Globes. Also a very interesting moment occurred up on stage with Meryl Streep and Sandra Bullock sharing a kiss when they were both announced as winners of the best actress award. Bradley Cooper appears to be enjoying himself in this picture as well !!!
Two posters have been released for next years release of Valentine’s Day, I have to admit that I am very much looking forward to this movie because some of my favorite actors/actresses are in this, mainly Julia Roberts . But I am also happy to see Taylor Swift in this too, as I am such a big fan of her music.
After composing the list of top 10 young actors which I used 30 as the cut off age. I decided to make a list of in my opinion in the top 10 actors in their 30s. This actually proved rather difficult to come up with as quite a lot of current actors in their 30s are very talented and doing a lot of great work. I am sure there is still a lot to come from some of these actors as well.
Another poster with pictures on this time for New York, I Love You
This new romantic comedy with Sandra Bullock and man of the moment Bradley Cooper really does look funny by the trailer, lets just hope is not one of those that show all the best bits in the trailer . . .
Just come across the first poster for New York, I Love You. A new romantic movie, which I think will just be great . . . yes I love NYC and Orlando is in it . . . haha I am sold for those very two reasons.
Bradley seems to be wanted for a lot of roles at the moment . . . and I for one am certainly not complaining about that, haha.
Actor Bradley Cooper has set the record straight about the upcoming A-team movie – insisting he has not been signed up to play Faceman in the new film.
Cooper was recently linked to the big screen role of Lieutenant Templeton ‘Faceman’ Peck, made famous by Dirk Benedict in the hit 1980s TV series.
But the star insists comments he made about the project were taken out of context – as he hasn’t even read a script for the A-Team picture.
He tells Chud.com, “A guy came up to me and asked about the character Faceman in The A-Team. I said ‘Oh, that’s out there already?’, but my point was that news about the film is out there. Literally that people knew about the remake, that’s it. I haven’t read a script or met (director) Joe Carnahan.”
The film, scheduled for release in 2010, is rumoured to boast an all-star cast including Bruce Willis, Woody Harrelson and rapper Common.

What a fantastic line up !!!
Hollywood stars Uma Thurman, Meg Ryan, Whoopi Goldberg and Adrien Brody will head up the judging panel at this year’s Tribeca Film Festival in New York.
The actors will be joined by fellow celebrities James Franco, Mary-Kate Olsen, Bradley Cooper, Melissa Leo, Parker Posey and Morgan Spurlock, who are all among the 32 jurors at Robert De Niro‘s movie event, which kicks off on Wednesday.
The line-up was announced at a press conference in the Big Apple on Tuesday, which featured Thurman, director Spike Lee and festival founders De Niro and Jane Rosenthal.
And New York resident Thurman is delighted to play such a key role in the eighth annual festival.
She says, “For me and people who enjoy films, Tribeca has been a major event for which all look forward to with major anticipation. As a New Yorker, it’s wonderful to see the impact it has on the city.
“This year is especially exciting because I get to be a part of it as a juror.”
De Niro founded the event with Rosenthal and Craig Hatkoff to help revitalise the lower Manhattan area after the terrorist attacks of 9/11 – and he is proud to continue celebrating New York City as a major film-making centre.
He adds, “It’s great to see how much the festival has grown since we started it in 2002 and how it has impacted this neighbourhood.”
The Tribeca Film Festival, which will host the world premiere of Woody Allen‘s new movie Whatever Works on Wednesday, runs until 3 May.
Zac Efron will recieve the 2009 Breakthrough Star award at ShoWest.
High School Musical star Zac Efron will be honoured as the ShoWest breakthrough performer of the year at the annual cinema owners’ convention in Las Vegas in April.
ShoWest managing director Mitch Neuhauser insists the young star, 21, was an easy choice this year as he prepares to take on the big-screen after the success of the musical franchise with new comedy 17 Again.
Neuhauser says, “When Zac Efron made his debut with the cast of Hairspray at ShoWest 2007, many in attendance took notice of this young actor’s incredible talent. His undeniable onscreen presence and charm have connected with fans around the world.”
Efron will be celebrated at an awards gala set to close ShoWest on 2 April.
Previously announced 2009 ShoWest honorees include Sienna Miller, Chris Pine and Bradley Cooper.
Jim Carey is back to comedy and back to his best. No-one else could have done this role in the same manner as Jim Carrey. He really is just fantastic at comedy.
Some pictures from the arrivals to the 2009 Independent Spirit Awards.
To take away the seriousness of the Awards season films and trying to watch previous Oscar winning movies. I decided to have a bit of a chick flick adventure and go to see “He’s Just Not That Into You”. Just for something that is quite easy to watch and doesn’t really take much attention span to follow what’s going on in it.
