I may hit TWBB this afternoon. I feel I underappreciated Daniel's turn as Bill the Butcher in that gangs movie a few years ago, and wish to try and make amends. Just in case he gets tired of Rebecca Miller, you know. I want to be ready to go.

So, is he among the men who has permission to carry you off?

(P.S. I hope you won't think I'm too forward when I say: lucky men!)

AE said...

Oh, how kind of you! But no, he's not one of the lucky ones. I wouldn't mind meeting him for a drink or something, but am not sure I want him carrying me off. I think he might be a bit eccentric and intense to live with. He was pretty fab in TWBB though.

In a strange twist he is on my "Carry Off" list.
Hey. THE CARRY-OFF LIST... a new RomCom starring Katie Holmes and Ellen Page as two friends who 's lives are turned upside down when a major hollywood star comes to woo one of them. Will their friendship survive the unexpected pitfalls of getting what you've always wanted ( Or think you wanted). W
THE CARRY-OFF LIST: The List Is Alive (with Love)
a Tri-Star release.

Mike_R said...

sorry. I got carried away.

Mike_R said...

THE CARRY-OFF LIST: Get Carried Away...in love!
i'm riffing!!

AE said...

Kelly, I'm sorry about that. He knows he's not allowed to have sugar.

I just watched TWBB and I didn't like it as much as everyone else I guess. Visually interesting but that's about it for me. I really liked Juno & Lars this year. Atonement would be up there for me. And while I wasn't a total fan of La Vie En Rose, Marion Cotillard was fantastic and that Savages was good but I loved Laura Linney.
