I myself find her films terribly bland, frigid and visionless, but Jane Campion is directing 6 episodes of BBC's new mini series
TOP OF THE LAKE.To be set in the wonderful landscapes of New Zealand the story will center around a detective who tries to solve the disappearance of a 12-year-old pregnant daughter of a local drug lord. The lead role will be taken by MAD MEN's brilliant Elisabeth Moss, with Peter Mullan playing the drug lord, and Holly Hunter and David Wenham also in the cast. MovieWeb reported today about an interesting film called DREAMT, set in modern day, where two people have a supernatural connection and therefore are actually dreaming in each other's lives. Conflict ensues after the men discover each other's existence, leading one man to try to take over the other's life and stopping at nothing to get it.

I don't know about you but I've always loved films with interconnected stories, and a new one will come from Neil LaBute who will adapt his book of short stories into SECOND OF PLEASURE film
weaving together several separate but intertwined stories about 6 different couples. The cast so far is interesting: Brendan Fraser, Christina Hendricks, Matt Dilon, Julia Stiles, Kristin Scott Thomas. One of the coolest British sitcoms ever, legendary ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS with the utterly crazy duo of two hilarious snobs played by Jennifer Saunders and Joanna Lumley, is heading to the big screen according to "Deadline"  and it will begin with Edina and Patsy waking up, hung over as usually, on a yacht in the middle of the ocean, with no cell phone signal to call for help. Fabulous, absolutely fabulous :) Good news: both Brett Ratner and Eddie Murphy have resigned from directing and hosting next year OSCARS :) This is apparently due to Brett making a scandalous and idiotic remark this weekend saying "rehearsal is for fags". 

And check out the pictures from the gala premiere of this year's biggest epic IMMORTALS which hits cinemas this weekend. As you know, Tarsem's movie follows the battle between Theseus, Gods and evil king Hyperion. The stars of the premiere were off
course Henry Cavill who plays Theseus and Luke Evans who plays Zeus. Two of them were looking super dashing, but no surprise there since they are two of the most handsome young stars in Hollywood. Freida Pinto, who plays a visionary priestess, looked absolutely stunning in her exotic ivory gown,  while young Isabel Lucas, who plays Athena, chose a rather disappointing
dress which didn't show off her beauty. Kellan Lutz who plays Poseidon also looked positively gorgeous in a black suit. To read more about the movie of the year, check out our exclusive spotlight on IMMORTALS.


  1. hahaha, I totally agree with your comments about Jane Campion's work.

  2. I noticed that most people agree with us on her :) THE PIANO, BRIGHT STAR, THE PORTRAIT OF A LADY, HOLY SMOKE, IN THE CUT... all dreadfully empty and monotonous with no emotion nor passion and plus she has a thing for expressionless actresses.

  3. So tell us how you REALLY feel about Campion. :) Have to agree, The Piano was a terrible movie.

    But what a handsome trio: Evans, Cavill, and Lutz. Very dashing, indeed. I think I'm going to go see Immortals on Saturday. Must see that one on the big screen I think.

    mega swoon :)

    I should be more precise, yes? :)
    Oooh, if you go to see it, and you really must, be sure to write a post on it :)

  5. Good news huh? What you don't like the guy that made X-men (one of the biggest peices of superhero trash ever, next to blade 3 and the hulk.) and the guy who brought your Daddy Day Care?..hahaha...Billy Crystal should do it, he's always been the best.

  6. Jane Zzzz It's ok if she induces sleep, look what you gave me to dream of.
    Thanks, friend.

  7. I will never forgive Ratner for X-Men 3. I loved the first 2 movies, but he nearly ruined X-men until First Class came along. Although i can't say i hate Murphy.

    Dreamt seems like it could be good

  8. Hey Dezzy - Can't wait for Immortals. It's going to be fun. I have to agree with you on Isabel's dress. She's obviously gorgeous. That dress didn't do her justice. =D

  9. Thanks for the end of the day good news... the cast for SECOND OF PLEASURE is perfect. And an ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS feature film!!!

  11. Evans and Cavill make me sick. Too bloody handsome!!

  12. Dreamt sounds like an interesting concept. It reminds me of a book I read a number of years ago.

  13. An Absolutely Fabulous movie, loved the show and hopefully this will be more of the same.

  14. Wasn't Holly Hunter in one of Jane Campion's previous films--The Piano? I'm hoping that they don't pick a loser to host the Oscars.

  15. @Mary
    he he :)Sweet dreams then :)

    then I'm glad I haven't watched the third part of XMEN :) is that the one when they are attacking some prison in the end? And Jane Gray dies?

    Yep, I don't know what she was thinking with that truly ugly dress, especially on such a humongous occasion :(

  16. @Robert
    I'm overly excited about ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS, I miss Eddie and Patsy so much :)

    it will be the film of the year :)

    she is very nice, but sadly in the shadow of Christina, although Christina is also gorgeous and also a great actress

  17. Immortals should be great~

    I was worried about Eddie when I saw him on Jimmy Fallon the other night! His every other word would of been bleeped out~ Wonder who will now host?!

  18. @Scott
    two of the hottest guys in history if you ask me, and both are my discoveries :))) I'm ever so proud :)

    it is an intriguing plot, isn't it?

  19. @Lurk
    it will be fabulous, absolutely fabulous :)

    she was, I think they love working together, which is natural given that both of them are rather bland.

    yep, I like Eddie, but I was afraid he would make Oscars too rude and offensive with lots of jokes on body sounds and similar. Hope they will find someone more refined.

  20. @Pat the Cat
    I'm afraid Eddie in the combination with Ratner would've been just too much even for poor little me :) Imagine if they hired a rhyming host? :)

  21. hahaha a rhyming host would be rather fun of course those glamor types might get confused a ton. They may look bright, in good light..haha.....yeah that's why I'm sort of glad Beverly Hills Cop 4 never got made, Ratner would just ruin it.

  22. I like the concept of Dreamt--it sounds right up my alley.

    A Faraway View

  23. @PAt
    I'd be the first one among the confused celebs :)))

    it is an interesting concept, isn't it?

    glad you like them :)

  24. Wow..Christina Hendrinks looks gorgeous...she reminds me of Joanne Whalley from Willow!

  25. ah, and this is one of the more innocent pics I've posted of her :)

  26. Some very intriguing stuff coming up. I LOVE Ab Fab and so can't wait for the movie. Immortals tomorrow, yay!!!

  27. oh, I knew you liked AB FAB, dahling, absolutely fabulous, dahling! :) Whom did you like better, Eddie or Patsy? :)

  28. You had me at AB FAB movie.

    IMMORTALS comes out today, but so does ELDER SCROLLS V: SKYRIM. Decisions decisions.
