The only way I'd have any hope for this film is if Jason's scene-stealing villain gets Cusack's girlfriend to fall for him throughout the chase. Then it will be like the Badlands or that Kevin Costner movie where he kidnaps a little boy who ends up liking Kevin, or something like that. Is it Cusack'...

For my money one of the best and most intelligent interviewers (radio) is Simon Mayo on the BBC. Wonderful listening to him. He absolutely knows how much to inject himself in the conversation and how much to let the guest ramble. it's true, bad interviewers make me cringe and want turn them off.

Just amazing. Could you try getting Lucius to sit with the more refined cross leg thing? Otherwise his pose is so perfect. It's amazing how unstiff you've made these figures look!

Okay I did find it (from Chari's site no less), it's from a chat when he was promoting Dumb Waiter and this is the line: <From Mandy Hodgkinson: I would be interested to know how you manage to stay in shape and juggle work and family commitments. Also are you still "on the wagon" smoking-wise? Jason...

I'll try to find it - I think it was a yahoo chat transcript where someone asks him how he stays in shape and he said something along the lines of loving to eat carbs but also having to take his kit off for roles and since he's vain he tries to keep in shape by running in the park with the dogs or c...

Is Jason actually afraid of all those animals he says he is or is his tongue firmly in cheek when he does those interviews? I've read him say he exercises by chasing a foorball about or taking the dogs for a run in the park. I'm wondering if he's just mentioned animals in a certain context where he ...

He did roll his eyes, very subtly, and it was wonderful. I was drinking in every moment of his scene and watching him so closely, the way he moved his wand about was so elegant. He really has a knack for gesturing in just the right way. SPOILERS (highlight) I think he'll actually look forward to sho...

A movie that always makes me stop changing channels is "Sense and Sensibility". I am so seriously into Alan Rickman in that film and I could watch it any number of times just to hear him speak and see the tortured, longng expression on his face. (sigh)

Yes, I couldn't even get past Eragon halfway - it was painful to read.It is just not well-written, it's basically Star Wars in the middle ages. I don't blame the 15 year old boy who wrote it but the massive build-up of a very so-so book.

Moira, you are COMPLETELY channeling me that it's scary. I could have written most of what you just did. I actually really loved "His Dark Materials" when "The Golden Compass" first appeared, championed it to all my friends, and even spoke to Pullman at a book signing when "The Subtle Knife" (the be...

Actually, he was all naked in Equus. And apparently provided proof that he is indeed a man.
Apparently he said something about how everyone was really surprised to see he had hair in places other than on his head. He is quite the witty youngster.

Wow, I agree with everyone's opinions here, particularly these: Foodie: To say that this was an emotional rollercoaster of a book would be a huge understatement! I went back and forth pitying and hating Albus, but I finally made my peace with him at the end. I was sure Snape was good but was terrifi...
