Anybody heard about the new gay surfer movie. And unlike other surfer movies, i.e. SURF CITY, this one looks like it has a plot.  Oh, they look rather conflicted in the trailer.  Is it really the most anticipated gay themed movie of the year?  Opening in March of 2008.

Several weeks ago, I wrote about Shelter, the upcoming movie from here! about two surfing buddies who fall in love. To say the reaction to those clips was strong would be an understatement. That makes me all the more pleased to announce that we have the world premiere of the brand-new trailer for the highly-anticipated gay surfing drama.

I've never heard of Shelter before, but after watching the trailer, I can't wait to see it!

I know this has been discussed already but us in Europe get to see movies later  >:(

Anyway, I went to see Juno and I totally loved it!!!! I'm not sure if it'll actually win anything but I am glad it is among the best picture nom movies. I thought it was very well done and well acted. I think this year No Country for Old Men will take all awards. Can't wait to see it. It opens this weekend.

Heh, yes Nat - i was the same although I had a dvd screener  ::) but i totally loved it too!

While I'm still in my Bourne-again mode, I think it's time for a gay action hero!  The closest we have is Private Eye Donald Strachey, played by Chad Allen, in the movies Third Man Out, Shock to the System and the upcoming Icy Blues.  Chad does a great job but the series is more like a gay version of the Nick & Nora Charles films. 

I want an edgy action hero!  I even know who to cast:  Robert Gant!


"Who, me?"  Yes, Robert, you would be perfect!


I seem to have a lot of influence in Hollywood, look what I just found:

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1043839/

Kiss Me Deadly
Ex-spy Jacob Keane (Robert Gant) is drawn back into the shadowy world of international espionage when his former partner Marta reappears after 17 years, her memory erased, on the run from a pair of deadly, psychopathic assassins.


The bad news is that Shannen Doherty co-stars,  ;)!

But they more than make up for that by featuring the Australian out actor & ex-rugby player Ian Roberts:

Look what's on the worst Oscar picks:

http://movies.msn.com/movies/oscars2008/photos/worstoscars?gt1=7701

3. "Crash," Best Picture, 2006
Another raging example of Hollywood's intense desire to reward itself for "saying something." Only this time, they forgot to notice that the winning picture actually said nothing about race and class in America that you couldn't learn from reading a bumper sticker or wearing a ribbon on the lapel of your tux. Yes, Virginia, mean people do suck, and there is a vast inequity between white people and black people in not just America but the world. It's worth remembering, but is it worth dramatizing? Worth letting good actors sink their whiter-than-white teeth into roles that never rise above archetypes? Worth converting into a script that makes every situation an Important Moment? Worth watching? Worth nominating? Worth a Best Picture Oscar? Just for caring? I vote no. (Lionsgate Films)

Love it, love it, love it.  ;D

I saw There Will Be Blood last night. Like Leslie, I have to think about it some more. I came out of it and told my husband, "I don't think I get it." It seemed like it marshalled a lot of powerful elements -- powerful acting, impressive sets and costumes, an epic plot -- to say ... well, what exactly?

I'm still not sure. Although as we talked about it over dinner, it started to feel a bit more cohesive.

And today I'm still thinking about it. It's like it works on an almost unconscious level.

If you're like me, you might have to watch it again to take it all in!  :P  ;)

Am I the only one who laughed at the "bowling with God" scene?
