    harrisonfordpicture.jpgI just wanted to mark the occasion of Harrison Ford‘s 65th Birthday with a post and to wish him a very HAPPY BIRTHDAY! He’s been a favourite actor of mine for as long as I can remember and I find it hard to believe that the great man has reached this distinguished age. Long may you continue giving us truly exceptional performances – I am looking forward to both “Crossing Over” and the long anticipated fourth instalment of Indiana Jones.

    Categories: Movies & TV Comments Off on De Niro & Pacino to star together again

    deniro_paci88610837.jpgI was thrilled to read that Robert De Niro and Al Pacino are to star together in another film – this will be only the second time they’ve appeared on screen together which seems unbelievable.

    The first occasion was for the 1995 film “Heat” in which they only shared two scenes. They were in both in The Godfather Part II but their characters never met on screen. It will be fantastic to see these truly great actors of our time appearing together throughout a film. According to Variety Magazine the crime thriller will be called “Righteous Kill” in which they will play two police investigators hunting a serial killer. Let’s hope the script can rise to this monumental task!

    Went to see this film yesterday afternoon… I spent the second half permanently wiping tears from my eyes!! It was beautifully filmed, wonderfully acted and extremely touching. RenĂ©e Zellweger never ceases to surprise me, here she was looking all ruddy complexioned and outdoorsy with a perfect English accent, not a hint of Texan. Ewan McGregor was also brilliant as her publisher. Read more »
