  6. Hmmm, I thought Leona was just a one hit wonder. I never heard anything else of hers after Bleeding Love. Hopefully she does well with the acting thing!

    1. that is because you're in USA, dear, you;'re missing a whole lot of great stars who are big in Europe and around the world.
      She had numerous hits after that, but it is true that her last album wasn't succesful enough mostly because she didn't have good support from her label.

  7. Le-Weekend is for me. Broadbend and Duncan are such good actors and the story is perfect. Being married for a life-time is like this, you must remind yourselves of why you love each other and renew your passion as you grow old.
    Also the comedy in this is going to be good.

    1. I guess that is the beauty of long love - renewing it constantly and building up the mountain from all the little moments you've spent together.

      I fell in love with Broadbent's talent after his role in MOULIN ROUGE!

  13. Red sounds like it might be an interesting mix, and Le Weekend definitely sounds like my kind of movie.

    We watched the pilot for "Blacklist" and thoroughly enjoyed it. Looks like it's gonna be a winner.
