hehe . . . you're a holy moly fan too, eh Mike?

That's a newspaper like NOTW is responsible journalism - but at least HM doesn't try to present itself as anything but a gossip rag!

Love the idea of Turner and the older generation pulling together.   Thanks!

Now that's a bizarre article!!!  :eeyore:    How weird is that?    Did you know that there is this doctor who was convicted of murder by the name of Richard Sharpe?  I hear the theme song to The Outer Limits playing in my head.

Well, the person who wrote the article must have been a lady who had probably just watched LC or something. The guy is called Sean BELL, as you can see at the bottom of the article. Glad to know there are other obsessed women too .....

I don't think I'll even bother holding my breath for this one. I think he really is too old for this one unlesss they were doing it as a 'what happened to them all afterwards' thing.

However -surprise surprise -Robin does get killed in the end according to the myth, so it would fit with most of his other roles!!

**thinking out loud**  Hmmmm, lets see...our boy or Russell Crowe???  He may be a good actor, but Russell Crowe is butt ugly, even when compared to Sean on a bad day.  But I can see the two of them playing off each other.  Bale is good, but Sean can blow him away with just a look, like he did in Equilibrium.  For the short time that Sean was onscreen in that, all eyes were on him, not Bale.  Well, if he was to jump into the role, Sean would be on location with serial co-star shagger Sienna.  So...I'm not sure if this would be a good thing or a bad thing...another dark character role...

The only comment on that page is from someone saying that Sean would make a good Robin Hood.   I wonder if she belongs to this site.

I don't think that Russell Crowe is butt ugly, but he's not my type.

It's a starter TT. OK I like Sean more then Russell; but he is interesting.

When I think about Robin Hood the movie with Mel Brooks comes to my mind. Don't know why. Maybe it's cos I try to suppress  Kevin Costner.

He may have looked like a little stoner when he was a tot, but he matured quite nicely, BJ.... you must admit:

(http://i250.photobucket.com/albums/gg243/kimmysphotos/other%20hotties/russell_crowe.jpg)

Not a classically handsome man, but great charisma and sex appeal!  And, dare I say it, better box office draw?  If Sean wants that role, he's gonna have to fight hard for it.
Title: Re: Just a note
Post by: lighty on June 21, 2008, 09:50:19 PM
It won't happen.  Sean's star was really just beginning to rise when he met George - and it's been going down since then.  He can't compete against the likes of Crowe and Bale, who have had non-stop starring roles for the last three years . . . while he was busy dissing the folks who give you jobs.

Talent doesn't count for squat; it's all about box office draw - and yes, WE know that Sean COULD draw an audience, but who is going to give him the chance when they have sure things on call?

He started "nesting" and got comfortable and complacent?  *shrugs*  Like I said.  If he doesn't have the ambition...

Anyway.  There's quite a bit of discussion on the IMDb forums of "Nottingham" on Who should play Robing Hood (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0955308/board/nest/92746490) and quite a lot of support for the boy as well as opinions that he is too old for the part.

I don't think he's too old for the role - it actually makes more sense to have an older Robin Hood - particularly if they are going with the deposed Earl who rode off on Crusade with the Lionheart, etc, etc.  The little fella they have on the BBC television version is what, twelve?  And yet he was supposed to have been off on Crusade for three years?  The Children's Crusade, maybe . . .
Even if they go with the other version of RH - the yeoman turned bandit without a redeeming quality (none of the merry men or "giving to the poor" - he just kept it), there's no reason an older man couldn't play the role.
Russell Crowe is five years younger than Sean and doesn't look particularly sprightly (imo - not bad.  doesn't float my boat), and he is presumably playing the love interest to Sienna Miller (at least it's the Middle Ages, when young women were married off to old farts all the time . . .) - it might actually play into the idea of an "evil" Robin Hood if he were played by an older man - someone grizzled and a bit world weary and cynical.  It always strains credulity when they have a young person trying to convince the audience that they're world weary and cynical.

But I really do not think that they will cast  Sean.   I think his "nesting" (love the euphemism!) has actually damaged his reputation in the business and he's paying the piper now.  It may not be a lack of ambition as much as a series of bad choices and now the roles he wants just aren't coming his way.  Let's face it - the projects that he's been attached to (even speculatively) for the last couple of years are either hold-overs from before he started his slide into mediocrity (like AWONI and CLS) or small budget indies (like TROAE) or scripts that sound suspiciously like "B" movies.

Last Battle Dreamer has some potential - but it could also turn out (if it every gets made) to be one of those weird modern love stories set in the past, so it all looks very contrived and silly and ends up going straight to DVD and Sunday afternoon showings on the the movie channels.  Black Death has all the hallmarks of the classic "B" bloody, scary, horror flick - there's potential there, but when you see the word "necromancer" it doesn't really suggest a plot of any depth.

That's not to say he wouldn't make some money from them - there are plenty of people who love that stuff.  But he won't earn any more credit in "serious" acting circles - and since he has apparently squandered what he did have, he needs at least a little if he ever wants to have a chance at a major production or a film with a shot at critical acclaim.  If he lacks ambition, then I suspect he doesn't care - if he does care than I feel very sorry for him - but he made his bed.

Heh... and a few inaccuracies.  The Sharpe series "made" actors like Pierce Brosnan and Daniel Craig?  :P

Argentina - that's Sharpe's Devil but that is unlikely to actually be filmed there because of the cost.  Probably the Crimea again.  ;)

pssssstttt : like Russel Crowe as well...... bad boy image and a very interesting face - a man with rough edges!

Okay - back to Robin Hood - did I miss something ? Why don´t they take Richard Armitage? I thought he was a huge success???
But well - anybody will be better than Kevin Costner!
Do you think Sean would apply for such a great job? Or does he think, while he is nesting, they have to come and ask him?

I have heard too that they definetely will make Devil - so that pays his meal tickets I guess. Maybe he thinks it´s enough. Maybe he likes the low budget movies. Maybe he feels lazy and doesnt want to work much anymore. Maybe he thinks he made enough money for the rest of his life. Who will ever know.... I just can´t imagine him not wanting great roles.... that´s so not him. And at the same time I will never understand, how he couldnt make something great after all the doors, that opened to him after LOTR and Troy. I would understand, if an actor with his brilliant skills would say " no TV and cinema anymore - I want to play only theatre-roles" - but crappy movies like Hitcher & Co?

There are only two things you can do sleeping or laughing; when Sean isn't there. When he's there you can languish for him. So you have to bit to do during the movie.
Title: Re: Just a note
Post by: lighty on July 03, 2008, 10:18:59 AM
Let's see - without turning back a page to see which film you're discussing, I'd say either "Hitcher" or "Silent Hill."

Which suggests a new game to while away the time, since the object of our attention has vanished from public gaze . . . how about a thread where we describe a film without using any character names - and as little of the plot as possible.  Instead, use adjectives like: scary, boring, complex, etc.  Describe the scenery: city, town, countryside but not the actual location.  Describe how well the actors play their roles - how convincing they were - without actually describing the characters . . .

Or something like that.

Okay . . .

erm . . . . .

Not very long; relies on physical scene and cinematography to carry the film as much as plot and dialogue.  Characters are well-drawn but only vaguely defined - intentionally.  Characterisations allow the actors to stretch their acting muscles a bit.  Storyline is sometimes confusing, but moves rapidly enough to avoid boredom.  Set in a city, but location is not clearly defined by the scenery.  Gritty by intent; vaguely surreal.  Based loosely on real events.

Sylvene knows more about the gaming world. Maybe she can give her opinion? I really hated the film as well, and I do like a good horror flick once in a while.

The game was good - is good.  Actually, very good.  Especially if you are into that genre - Horror / Action.  Fantastic graphics, beautiful art and chilling soundtrack.  It actually has quite a bit of cult following in the game world.  There are actually 6 Silent Hill games.  Which shows you the longevity of the title.  I couldn't see how they would turn it into movie, but guessed that a good screenwriter and director could pull it off. 

A few friends who were fans of the game went to watch the movie after watching the trailers and came back not only disappointed but disgusted.  The game IS produced by the Japanese, so the English dialogue isn't that good and as the article put it, the iffy dialogue carried through to the movie.  The game has beautiful cinematic cutscenes of possible ending scenarios and they are reached by the player making certain decisions during the game.  In the game, you played the main character and made decisions, so you have an immediate buy-in.

The movie could also have suffered from pressures of re-writes.  Sean was not originally slated to have a starring role.  Due to studio pressure for a male lead, he was re-written into a subplot - all those surreal scenarios which worked well enough in the game - but felt disjointed and messy in a movie. Now... still, it looked great (from what I saw of the trailers) and some friends confirmed it was great until the dialogue was pointed out whereupon the defense was.  "It was bad in the game too!"

I didn't watch the movie because it got thumbs down from everyone I knew and I'm not a fan of horror movies.  I only watch them on the home screen and if I have someone who's lap I can crawl into.  So I haven't watched a horror movie in oh... 6 years I think.

Ooo, this could cover several of his films, but the "Based loosely on real events" limits it greatly.  But which could it be: Essex Boys or Outlaw?  Hmmmmm......

Post by: Blue Jay on July 03, 2008, 03:56:03 PM
Essex boys was based on real events, but you can't say it wasn't very long. It was an ordinary film length. Outlaw too, so that's why I don't think it can be either of those. I should think that not very long means, shorter than an ordinary movie.
Title: Re: Just a note
Post by: lighty on July 03, 2008, 05:42:30 PM
Okay - I'll rephrase "not very long" to not as long as some feature films - about 10 minutes shorter than the average 100-105 minute film.

Not a good idea MF. Imagine you have a DVD with all nice scene Sean is in; I say that now as physician and not as a fan; that's to dangerous it would cause rapid heart beat, hormone system would get out of control, hyperventilation, your eyes would get dry cause you stop blinking etc.

But I'll have a try (think it's quite easy):

It's placed in a certain town, the main theme ist about obsessional love and the inability of social and emotional interaction, you can find some humorous and some sad moments, it is one of Sean's earlier works.

Black Beauty: He's again a good one, thereis no love story he is involved and there is noch rebellion
The True Bride: No rebellion, he's the lovely gardener

Pride: IS THE DAMNED ONLY FILM I'VE NEVER SEEN YET!!!!!

Because I'M A FRIENDLY LOVEBALE person (and in contrast to some unnamed other players in this game) I've chosen this one:

It's a story about love, social pressure and borders and battles for existence. Sean's role is dashing, rough, but compelling.

LC ! Lots of love, even more about social pressure and borders ! Battles for existence, yes, when he wants to leave.
Dashing rough and compelling anyway - and he is not a really good one in the beginning.

And if it´s not LC, it is Scarlett ! Sean is evil in that ! And again - "love" (at least physical love :-), social pressure and borders and battles for existence with the irish people.

(I said: don´t laugh - and that means as well: dont giggle!!!! lol)

Ladies, I'm really disappointed. Where is that gorgeous sporting spirit of the SBO members? There is still a puzzle open.
I summarize the hints:

It's a story about love, social pressure and borders and battles for existence. Sean's role is dashing, rough, but compelling. He's not a goodie. He survives. It's set in northern England.

And ...because it seems to be too difficult or...my suppose ... you are bored or simply lazy...one last clue:

That doesn't surprise me that he only has a small role.   That seems to happen more often than  not.

Sometimes movies are a lot different than the books they are taken from.  Hopefully the movie will be better than the book.  Or, it could just turn out to be a crappy movie.

Right - for examle the book "Sheep" is so much better than the movie The Dark - but at least James looks GGGGGREAT in that movie and has a leading role.
But Shadowmancer......Jacob Crane....  :crap
Damnit - what he would really need right now would be a REAL great movie - and most of all: a positive movie, where he could shine with a good charisma.
But I think it needs some things to happen until he can perform this. He needs his charisma back - he had it.  :furious:

Post by: lighty on August 10, 2008, 11:46:57 PM
You too, MF?  I love birds and gardening (herbs especially, veg next, flowers and shrubs after that but not as much).  Living in the desert bites, because nothing grows worth a damn here and the birds are relatively few in type.  Pigeons, doves, grackles, wrens, warblers, hummingbirds, roadrunners (had a couple of HUGE roadrunners in our back yard last year - that was pretty cool), very rarely quail.

I like the grackles - I think I may be the only person in Las Vegas who does; most people hate them worse than pigeons, but I think they're a hoot to watch.  During mating season, all the males wander around doing their mating "dance" -

they puff up their throats with air and stick their beaks straight up into the air.  Then they walk around, making this weird honking noise and ruffling their wings.  Of course they can't see where they're going, so they run into each other and trees, bushes, etc.

The females stand off to the side and watch.  I swear you can see them thinking "that's IT?  Those are my choices??  I'm surprised our species has lasted this long . . ."

Still, I think they're pretty clever.  A number of years ago I watched one trying to get a drink out of a very shallow puddle on the sidewalk.  They have very long, pointy beaks and the water wasn't more than a 1/2 inch deep at most.  After one try, the grackle stood back and looked at the puddle . . . then he stepped into the water, leaned over, and lay his head down sideways into the puddle.  His beak was almost submerged - he just opened it up and lapped the water with his tongue.

Totally cool.

Love birds.

Here's a Great-tailed Grackle - the kind we have here:

Yes, I do love birds and have several feeders and birdbaths in my yard, plus some bird houses. We have a wide variety of birds here, from the tiny hummingbirds to the large rock doves and crows.  I seen dozens of different varieties in my yard.   Some are here year round, others migrate through  here for a few weeks in the spring and fall.  It's a special treat to see the colorful goldfinches, indigo buntings and rose breasted grosbeaks during their short stays.   Every year, house finches build a nest in a basket on our front porch and raise their little families, and other birds build nests in the bird houses or in trees and shrubs.  I love listening to their various songs too.

I have a love/hate relationship with the birds around my house.  The scissor-tail swallows build their mud nests in one spot on the front porch so that we can't use the front door because once the eggs hatch they will attack anyone coming to the door and they dive bomb the cats in the yard when they aren't even doing anything.  They are great fun to watch but so very messy, especially when Miss Tiger, our bird cat, leaves me a nice pile of bloody feathers and a smear on the kitchen floor.  A swarm of quail make a daily pass thru the back pasture, picking apart the horse apples which makes them disintegrate faster and they keep down the grasshopper population, but they terrorize the cats.  Guess its all a part of living in the country.

Sable:  "There's a dead mouse in here."
Sylvene:  "Is that what that smell is..."
Sable yells for the other half:  "You've got to get rid of that dead mouse!"
Sable's other half:  "Where is it?"
Sable:  "In here somewhere!"

Sylvene... having had cats, and one that looooved bringing in mice wisely kept her mouth shut and didn't let on that the first time her cat did that to her, she spent more time standing on a chair than sweeping the mouse out of the house.  It's not a lot of fun if you are peering under the cupboards and a mouse makes a dash right at your face because the cat is trying to flush it out from the other side.

I was playing an online game with 5 guys when something scampered over my bare foot.  It wasn't warm and furry.  Mice have cold feet.  I think I deafened the guys with my shriek over the chat.  They were no help at all.  One of the worst suggestions was to trap the mouse using a teacup.  Teacup??  Yeah... over 6 years ago and I still remember that suggestion.

I've lotst track of the number of times we've moved all the furniture round in the lounge trying to get the mouse that's gone under first one chair and then the other. It's amazing the tiny tiny spaces they can get their bodies into. We always try to put a tupprware or something over it so we can lovingly scoop it up and put it outside alive. The last time we tried this with a vase and my husband dropped the vase over (he thought) the mouse to trap it, but dropped it on the damn thing and killed it. Got blood all over my vase too. Last night out bedroom door was shut and she couldn't bring in the pressie, so she just played with it in the hall til it died of fright. I have to say that was lot easier than chasing it round the lounge!  We are animal lovers really we are, it just wears a bit thin at 3 am.

When I was 11, I had a year-long science project involving mice - breeding to determine colour variation, etc.  Started with 2 white mice and 2 black mice . . . ended up with over 60 mice in varying shades.

The cages were in my bedroom (do not even think about the smell . . .) - my cat, Mr. Moto, was determined to "cull the herd" on a regular basis and learned how to open the cage doors.  We didn't know this for quite awhile; we just thought the little buggers were escaping between the bars.

I can still see my mother, who really didn't like the mice but did support my fledgling efforts at scientific enquiry, chasing Moto down the hall as he attempted to swallow a mouse whole, while on the run.  She'd catch the cat, put her hand around his throat, and - more often than not - succeed in pulling a very damp, very confused, and probably very traumatised mouse out of his mouth.  Said mouse would be delivered to me held at arm's length by it's tail.

She told me later that the mice were better than the colony of horned toads I collected and kept when I was about 6.  I made outfits for them out of scraps of material, dug up ant colonies to collect the eggs for them to eat, and built them little houses out of shoe-boxes (my dad got me an old refrigerator box to keep them in and my toad town was inside the box.  When they died, I insisted on giving them "proper" burials and she had to put up with my little toad cemetery in her flower bed - complete with a picket fence made of whitewashed popcicle sticks and tombstones with their names painted on for each grave.

Mice are cute - so are horned toads.  Don't mind snakes, either (unless they're venomous).  We don't have mice around here - or horned toads or snakes.  Just lizards.  Lizards aren't bad, but not as much fun.

Boromir (The Fellowship of the Ring, 2001)

Spock’s death was a good example of sacrifice being used as an emotive theme in a death scene. When combined with redemption, it becomes even more powerful and moving.

The character whom best exemplified this was Boromir, played by Sean Bean, an actor who can ... erm, die well, as he showed in 2002’s Equilibrium as well.

 
Sean Bean as Boromir in The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Rings.
 The first part of Peter Jackson’s The Lord of the Rings adaptation of the much-loved J.R.R. Tolkien classic was probably the most faithful to the source. What cinematic liberties Jackson took seemed to drive home the point of the story.

Boromir’s characterisation was a perfect example. He began to believe that the quest to destroy the One Ring was foolhardy, and the best hope for the forces of good would be for a brave and noble warrior to wield it. He attempted to steal it from Frodo (Elijah Wood), realising too late that he’d been subtly corrupted by the Ring, and his own pride.

Even his attempts to make amends by protecting Frodo’s companions fail, and the other two hobbits are seized by Orcs.

Boromir’s remorse and regret finally find expression when Aragorn (Viggo Mortensen), the rightful king whom he’d resented, forgives him as he lays dying. His redemption is completed with his last breath: “I would have followed you my brother ... my Captain ... my King.”

Bean misses 'miserable' UK weather
Tuesday, November 11 2008, 00:18 GMT

By Michael Thornton


Rex Features
Sean Bean has revealed that he misses the British weather when he works in the US.

The Lord Of The Rings star said he pines for the UK's grey skies, his family and Sheffield United when spending time away from home.

"I miss a lot about England when I'm working away, even the slate grey skies," he is quoted as saying.

"I spend a fair chunk of time in Los Angeles and, after about ten days of warmth and unbroken clear skies, you start to yearn for a bit of good old British gloom and rain!"

He added: "Of course I miss my kids, and my friends and my mum and my dad and Sheffield United and my garden. The list goes on!"

http://www.digitalspy.co.uk/showbiz/a135225/bean-misses-miserable-uk-weather.html

So he likes rain and bad weather. OK dear come to my place and you get wet every five minutes. It's rainy, cold and windy. And when he was outside he can sit in my office and I have the sunshine next to me. Good idea. 365 days a year nice weather.

That bit has to be from an old, old interview - when's the last time he was in LA?  2005? 

I'd love if it was recent, since BIV would apparently only rate as part of the "list" that goes on of things he misses . . . but I suspect that it was said before she got her hooks sunk into him so deeply.

10. Sean Bean (Sheffield United)

Professional Northerner and former Sheffield United director who is always banging on about how much he loves the Blades. Fell out spectacularly with Neil Warnock, the former United manager, last year. “At a board meeting, he made a big show of how he wanted to make an important point,” Warnock said. “We all waited expectantly and then he said that we should get rid of Captain Blade. That was it. That was all he wanted to talk about. The team mascot. The fluffy thing on the touchline. Captain F**king Blade. That was the extent of his contribution."

Interesting that the author of that equal opportunity hit piece seemed to think that the amount of money these celebs give to a club is indicative of their support (i.e., Elton John) - and also their willingness to support their home sides; at the same time he slams Sean (and the Gallaghers and Amy Winehouse, etc) for supporting their sides but not living in their hometowns . . . and he carefully avoids mentioning how much money Sean forked over for that position on the Blades BOD (I read somewhere that it was in the range of a quarter million).

Bizarre and utterly useless article.

If that article is true, I don't blame Sean for wanting to get rid of Captain Blade. When I took my boys to see the Blades, we were in the second row and he was trying to tease my kids. They were not impressed. He's worse  than a circus clown! Football is too serious a sport to have him prancing around.

Dark Tower

Like Fireball Island before it, Dark Tower was another amazing game from Milton Bradley that was truly geektastic and not appreciated enough when it came out. It had a fairly large playfield and a wicked cool electronic tower that controlled the game in the center. Copies of these now sell for $300 and up on eBay, and you can even play an electronic version of it online here. You play as one of four different kingdoms, trying to collect the three keys that you need in order to lay siege to the scourge of the land: The Dark Tower.

The pitch: Four different kingdoms, each ruled by a different king (Sean Bean, Nathan Fillion, Brendan Fraser, and Orlando Bloom), have come under the control of the ominous Dark Tower that sits in the middle of the borders. Ruled by a dark presence (a CGI Orson Welles), the four kings must don their armor and arm themselves in order to explore the dark wilderness that has sprang up in each of their kingdoms. Fighting brigands, doing battle with dragons, staving off the plague and collecting treasures brings them them ever closer to the Dark Tower, and to certain doom. Will all of them survive to take down evil? Or will they be taken from the land forever by the Dark Tower?

Off-screen Bean, from all I have read, sounds like a boozy, sexist, Yorkshire soccer bore. His temper once landed him in court for causing actual bodily harm and at the age of 30, when he should have known better, he tattooed his left arm with the legend “100% Blade” for Sheffield United. He was once quoted, out of context he claims, as saying “a woman’s place is in the home”.

Good that he didn't say kitchen otherwise I would send him our  :elf to smack him on the head, tho the "home" is already enough.

If they talk about football in Sheffield they talk about Sean:

Quote
Sean Bean, on the other hand, could probably be picked up relatively cheaply. The steel-jawed actor has a history of professed allegiance to Sheffield United and a tattoo declaring himself to be “100 per cent Blade”. A few grand per week and the offer of corrective laser surgery for the tattoo, however, and this 100 per cent Blade could swiftly become 100 per cent Blue.

Be sure he never would do this. I could bet everything I have on this.

We tend to divide up over regions (North/South; East/West' Midwest/everyone else); by state (too many to name); by city (San Francisco vs LA; New York vs Chicago; etc).

People say America exists because it's a 'melting pot' - sometimes, I think it exists because it's so big that people in different places can pretend they are autonomous . . .

I dislike 'othering' but it's human nature to define oneself against someone else - much easier to say 'we are NOT like THEM' than to say 'we are essentially the same' . . .

"Go down on your knees and .......... (clean the area behind the fridge)"
"Bow down and (scrub the bath tub)"
"Lean over and (make the bed)"
"Arche back and (clean the underside of your kitchen wall cabinet)"

Quote
Sean Bean, a New Hampshire National Guard member from Laconia, said he knows of a fellow guard member who racked up a $1,000 phone bill while serving overseas.

"It's expensive to call from places like Iraq or Afghanistan," Bean said.

If he would talk about India I would understand but Afghanistan or Iraq. Could it be that there are two Sean Beans? I don't know so I think additional reaseach is required.

The worst five football films

When Saturday Comes
Wrong on so many levels, this Sean Bean fronted flick met severe criticism for its unrealistic take on the professional game. It was littered with inaccuracies and the live football scenes were a joke. To add insult to injury, most of the film’s songs were penned by Def Leppard’s Joe Elliot.


The bed thingy wasn't good either.

MF, those are just one critic and Mike's opinions and like everyone in the world has arses, everyone has opinions.  I quite like WSC and there are plenty of people out there who enjoyed WSC.  While it made that particular "worst" list it has also made several "best" lists and has a ton of good reviews by people who actually have the credentials to make a respected opinion.  Its a nice little film about a man and how he grows and discovers what is really important in life and what he is capable of with a nice little love story on the side, not about football per se.  Considering what you have liked and disliked of Sean's so far, I think you will enjoy it.
Title: Re: Just a note
Post by: beanyfan on January 30, 2009, 01:00:41 PM
I enjoyed it. Who cares whether it was realistic or not? The fact that he was apparently already 10 years too old to play the part passed me by as well. Good chance for some good acting, a little bit of tissue work required and loads of Sean. Nuff said.
Title: Re: Just a note
Post by: moonflower on January 30, 2009, 02:08:51 PM
I've read some of the criticism of WSC before, but that doesn't mean much to me at all.  If I only watched movies that got good reviews, I would be watching very few movies.  Among Sean's  movies that I've seen so far, of course I liked some better than others.  But I have been very happy to see all of them, as I slowly make my way through the list.

Thanks again for letting me know it's on You Tube.  I'm going to watch it tomorrow night (Saturday).  The computer may not be the ideal place to watch a movie, but at the same time, it lends a kind of intimacy to the situation.
Title: Re: Just a note
Post by: Blue Jay on January 30, 2009, 05:20:09 PM
I know nothing about football, but I suppose with this film it's like with a lot of other films. They are not very realistic. I have seen nurses laugh their arses of about medical series, and I myself have laughed a lot about films about teachers. One in particular springs to mind, Dangerous Minds with Michelle Pfeiffer. Lots of people think that's a good film. As a story, as a concept, it's pretty good, but don't ever think the teaching part was realistic.
I enjoy WSC for the same reasons Sable does, and I have been told by my pupils, who know about football, that the football bits are not particularly good. They actually didn't mind, because they liked the love story. So, to each his own.
Title: Re: Just a note
Post by: moonflower on January 30, 2009, 07:47:52 PM
Since I know very little about sports, it wouldn't mean anything to me if the film is inaccurate in that regard.  I want to watch it because Sean is in it.  I look forward to seeing all his films and the diverse characters he portrays.
Title: Re: Just a note
Post by: Soulmate on January 31, 2009, 05:15:38 AM
And I even think it must not only be seen as a sports-movie - it is a movie about dreams of simple, quite poor people and how they deal with their lifes (a bit comparable with The Full Monty for example). This is what I liked about the movie. And Pete Postlethwaite was brilliant too!
Title: Re: Just a note
Post by: Blue Jay on January 31, 2009, 10:09:08 AM
Exactly, and I'm sure The Full Monty wasn't realistic either the way they portrayed it. If every film that was ever made, would have to be dismissed because of that, I think there would be very few left.
Title: Re: Just a note

I just finished watching WSC on You Tube.  It wasn't ideal conditions, picture wise.  I kept the viewing screen regular size most of the time since full screen was too unclear, so that made for a pretty small picture.  But despite that and the fact that it had to be watched in segments, I really liked it!  For one thing, Sean was in nearly every scene.  That's pretty rare in his movies.  To me, it wasn't so much of a sports movie, as it was a movie about relationships--family relationships and man and woman relationships.  And it was about a person wanting a different way of life.  I know that some people have said Sean was too old to play the role, but I didn't see it that way.

I liked his character, how he matured, and how he came to the realization that he loved Annie.  But he did have fun with that stripper too.

I confess to rewinding some of the scenes a few times.  I'm sure you all know which scenes I'm talking about.
Title: Re: Just a note
Post by: beanyfan on February 01, 2009, 03:16:23 AM
Ditto to all of that -including the rewinding!!
I had no idea how old he was when he did that until i read it somewhere. I also wonder how many times the scene with the stripper was 'fluffed' so that it had to be replayed. Didn't look too much like acting did it!??
It's great isn't it when you can tick another Beanie film of your 'must see' list.
What's next?
Title: Re: Just a note
Post by: moonflower on February 01, 2009, 09:11:13 AM
That movie definitely was on my "must see" list, so I'm very glad that you told me about You Tube, beanyfan.  It's very curious when you look at the number of viewings for each of the 10 segments.  They vary widely in number, so a lot of people are just watching one or two segments and not the whole movie.  I don't get that.  I wanted to see all of it.

Since I'm trying to go through Sean's movies in order, the next one on my list is Airborne, but Blockbuster now says that is unavailable, even though it's still listed on their site.  Also in my queue is Bravo Two Zero, but that  says a very long wait.  I'm also having trouble watching  the Sharpe movies in order, like I want to.  Either they are in very short supply at Blockbuster or they are very popular.  The 2 that I've had in my queue for a while, Sword and Regiment, state that there is a long wait or very long wait for them. 

I've had to go back and select a movie I skipped over the first time, How To Get Ahead in Advertising.  I had skipped it since I heard it wasn't so great and Sean wasn't in it for long, but at least it's available, so I guess they'll send that next.  I'll probably also add Jacob, which I had skipped over originally too.  After these, I may have to go further into the future to find some available movies.

When I was watching that stripper scene, I wondered how many times Sean purposely screwed up so that they would have to keep reshooting it.  It looked like he was thoroughly enjoying himself.  I can easily believe that they took a whole day to film that scene.

Watch it all the time, galamb - reading nonverbal language has been a hobby of mine for many years, so it's a lot of fun to watch.  People have so many 'tells' . . .

Like Sean and the nose rubbing when he's being less than honest in interviews.  Not the swipe under to catch the snot - but the quick, one-fingered rub along the side of his nose.  That, and the neck rubbing  and the occasional eye rubbing . . . and the stumbling over words . . . and the crooked smile accompanied by the small shrug (which looks ever so charming).  All those things indicate someone is lying.

Poor sod is an open book, though he never really says anything at all.  It sometimes amazes me how unaware he is of his 'tells' - you'd think an actor would have some training in these things.

And I'm not criticizing his falsehoods in interviews; the man is entitled to privacy.  It's just so OBVIOUS.

I think he made that up - if you look up 'gruffle' you get
"to eat hastily, with great zeal" or
"the hair that grows on the lower back - proof of masculinity" (may I digress and say - ick.) or
"an evil red fire-breathing monster from a children's TV programme" or
"a type of food (in the Star Wars world)" or
"a curse word"

Cats apparently making 'gruffling' noises in their sleep . . . some singers have a 'muffled-gruffled' voice . . . a shaving cut might be called a 'gruffle', as well . . .

Ah!  Getting closer . . .
a rap singer named 'Supecell' has a "raspy, gruffled voice"

Like Sean and the nose rubbing when he's being less than honest in interviews.  Not the swipe under to catch the snot - but the quick, one-fingered rub along the side of his nose.  That, and the neck rubbing  and the occasional eye rubbing . . . and the stumbling over words . . . and the crooked smile accompanied by the small shrug (which looks ever so charming).  All those things indicate someone is lying.

Poor sod is an open book, though he never really says anything at all.  It sometimes amazes me how unaware he is of his 'tells' - you'd think an actor would have some training in these things.

And I'm not criticizing his falsehoods in interviews; the man is entitled to privacy.  It's just so OBVIOUS.

Actually, those can be signs of uncertainy to. My guess is there are both.

Now, now, XB - even though they look gross and taste gross, and have enough fat in them to clog the arteries of a football team, and are really nothing more than slowly rotating petri dishes of bacteria laden mystery meat . . .

I take it back.  They are beyond horrible.

I've heard that the 'authentic' kind (which is marinated lamb slices stacked one atop the other and roasted on a vertical spit) is pretty good - but I've never seen one of those.

Donner meat is called Gyros here in US.  And Lighty, prepared properly with the slices of lamb and beef together with the proper seasonings, its quite tasty and nowhere near as deadly.  Its actually made from quite lean slices of meat.  I had it all the time in Germany but anywhere else where its done as the mystery meat boulders on a spit, you can forget it.  I saw a telly piece on how they make that stuff.  Trust me, you do NOT want to know.
Title: Re: Just a note
Post by: tinytim on November 26, 2009, 12:53:57 AM
Gyros is the greek and Döner the Turkish variant. Originally Gyros is made of pork and Döner of mutto, but you get it in different variations on the street. Actually the quality in real restaurants is quite good and not to compare with the scaring fast food stuff you get in takeaways.

Yes, there are a couple (at least) of places here in Vegas that sell doner kabob - I checked out one of them awhile back and it was like walking into an East London chippie - greasy and disgusting!  yum.  Not.

I've never been a fan of gyros; I think it's the spices (or maybe just the grease.  yarg).  I'm not sure what the spices are- suppose I could look it up - but it's never appealed to me.  My son used to love them though, before he turned herbivore.

On edit:  just looked it up.  It appears that most gyros spice mixes include either fennel or caraway along with the more basic spices.  I don't care for either of those (it's that damned licorice/anise taste - yuck, yuck, yuck).  That explains it!
Title: Re: Just a note
Post by: RnRPaintGrL on November 26, 2009, 10:08:25 AM
that sounds nasty, I never liked the anise taste either. I've never had a gyro but my folks used to make kabobs on the grill we marinaded the meat sometimes in Italian salad dressing and it was great!

*devil's advocate post*

Oh, I dunno.  Those prints are the one's Sean signed for Steve last year (year before last?).  He did it so Steve could sell them - it wasn't associated with a charity at any point.  He's an entrepreneur and Sean helps him out.  I don't think he can write his way out of a paper bag, but he doesn't seem like that bad a bloke.  Just a bloke.  Look at that picture on his website (of he, Gary, and Sean) - if you didn't know who Gary and Sean were, would you see them as any different than Steve?  (actually, if you didn't know Sean, I suspect he'd be singled out as the seedy one . . . damn he was plastered!)

I know a few people in England who brew their own beer. I don't know if you can still get them, but there was a time when you could get DIY beer brewing kits at Boots. Exbill will know. And yes, I can see our boy doing that. Pottering in the garden and brewing in the shed. Why not?

I know that there are a lot of pubs in the UK, but it's hard to believe that 38 pubs go out of business every week.

It's an awful situation - exacerbated by the smoking ban, taxes charged on pub sales but not shop sales, the stranglehold that corporations have on the pub business - it's harder and harder to find an independent - and of course the horrible economy (among other things).  A shame to see a genuinely ancient institution dying, especially the CAMRA pubs (I believe Sean is a real ale supporter).

Interesting information here:  http://www.camra.org.uk/

(on a different note - the Great British Beer Festival is the first week of August in London . . . if he's not working, I'd be surprised if Sean didn't come a calling . . .)

I think it's independent pubs. A lot of them are bought up by the big companies, so they all sell the same stuff and there's no nice little surprises anymore. Over all the years I visited England I haven't seen many pubs disappear, but they did change considerably, and usually not for the best. Even the names are changed to something really silly.
Title: Re: Just a note
Post by: Annie on March 22, 2011, 11:31:31 AM
It's a bit of a lose/lose situation really.  The big chains have bought up all the city centre pubs and turned them all into  clones (based on some master plan from their marketing people).  The true independant is very hard to find and they usually are centred on food (or are in such a touristy place that they can't fail to make money and can charge whatever they like). 

Outside the cities, country pubs are struggling because people won't drive to them like they used to (No bad thing) but they are generally still owned by chains and the tenants struggle to get the turnover they need to keep going.  Several near where I live have been turned into private houses or have been turned into restaurants.  The ones that have stayed as pubs change landlords every year (or even every few months in some cases) as people try to live their dream and make a living and go bankrupt in the process. 

I've done my fair share of home brewing / winemaking in the past.  Work means that I've not done so much in recent years - you do need time to do it all.  The dregs from the tubs /barrels are good for the garden though so it' not just the brewer that benefits from a bit of beer DIY.

I wonder what it is about Seamaster watches?  My dad has one that he bought in the early 60s - still wears it every day, even though something 'died' inside and it won't wind automatically anymore.  I think we could send it to Omega to be fixed, but he won't take it off long enough to do that . . . so he just winds it every day.

Very attached to that watch, he is.

I used to put chocolate bars in my back pocket (in the wrapper) just so they would melt. Then I'd very messily eat them.  Life was very good when I was a kid.

Sean Bean is one of my favorite actors.

I've never noticed it with any other actor before. Maybe I am the only one who sees it.

Yup his distinctive swallow is pretty well omnipresent in all of his films. I suppose an actor only has so many things he can draw upon to show emotion/reactions and that is one of his tried and tested. Onlly those with SBOCD would probably notice it.
Title: Re: Just a note
Post by: lighty on August 17, 2011, 07:04:31 PM
Agree about the mannerisms - the obvious swallow and the nose-bridge pinch are his two biggies in the dramatic arena, followed slightly less often by the chin thrust.  The slight head cock and lop-sided grin are part and parcel of his more light-hearted arsenal.  Then there's the finger rubbing (seen most lately in his bedroom scene with Michelle Fairley in GoT) - and the non-existent ring twisting (always the left ring finger) that he does in interviews; I think that last may be a nervous tick.

And more besides - the guy is a bundle of mannerisms, actually . . .

Bless!  :goodgrl2:

Ring twisting and cheek scratching . . . have we seen those in roles?  Should we include interview ticks along with acting mannerisms . . . or are they ticks?  Maybe it's ALL acting, regardless.

The only time I've ever seen him sit almost absolutely still was in that long interview he did about the Blades - it was on BladesWorld - when they were planning the march on Parliament.  He was extremely composed and calm; resolute in his conviction, direct in his gaze and well-spoken. 
Granted, he was discussing something that was clearly very, very important to him, but I had to wonder, 'who is the REAL Sean Bean?  That guy - or the eye-averting shy fella with the cheeky grin and the portfolio of twitches and ticks?'

Post by: lighty on August 18, 2011, 04:54:01 PM
Is the middle finger pointing thing a European/UK trait?  I've noticed it with several British/European actors.  Perhaps because Americans use the 'one finger salute' and Brits use the 'two finger salute' so that middle finger doesn't carry the same connotation that it does when we see it being used for everything from pointing to smoothing errant eyebrow hairs . . .

“My then girlfriend and I went up and spoke to him and he was really lovely, quite shy actually and seemed a bit embarrassed that we wanted to speak to him at all. He was happy to have his picture taken with us and everything and overall we were struck by how nice he was, which, somehow, is something you don’t always expect from a TV and movie star.

You're aware that with your film work, by the way, that you rival Sean Bean. That Sean Bean is a human spoiler: this film aside, you seem to die in everything you appear in. As does Sean Bean.

That's me, that's me! Dead man walking! If I start supporting Sheffield United, you'll know I've bought the whole thing!

Did you ever see him in When Saturday Comes?

Yes! Yes! I think Sean Bean is - it sounds stupid to say - underrated. But I think he is. He gets huge publicity and huge admiration, but I don't think he's held in the light he should be. I think he's extraordinarily better than he's given credit for.

I'm not sure I really want him to be famous as much as well regarded.  Famous is all well and good and a high profile will always help with the awareness of casting agents and directors though prob. all of them know who he is by now but I want him to be really, really *known* and thought of as a wonderful versatile actor and then be A list relevant - after Tracey, anything is possible and I want more in that vein, more 'serious' stuff that shows off what this uber talented man can do.

I kinda want to re-write some of him; to lose the silly comments that accompany every article about him - the dying and the "one doesn't simply" line, and the "four times married" that is shoved in everywhere however irrelevant to the subject matter of the piece - and replace those ideas of him with those wonderful scenes from the "Enemy of Man" trailer, his amazing performance in "Clarissa" - the most visceral yet gentlemanly fight scenes I have ever seen b.t.w. - where the viewer goes from utter revulsion to pity in a moment; how powerful was that and how many actors could provoke such a change in those feelings in an audience in a split second? - or Tracey, not necessarily the more well known roles but the ones that show what he can do.  I want his talent to be taken seriously, really seriously - I want an Oscar for him!

The 'problem' with our knowledge of him is that we study every move, every nuance, every look in a way that the more casual observer may not have done, and we can look at any part of his career at any time, or huge blocks of one era, in a way that 'normal' viewers and maybe casting agents just don't have the time or interest to do.  Our close analysis, watching of everything not just the more famous roles, and re-watching prob. isn't possible for most people and they miss out on seeing what he is truly capable of because of it - our joy, their loss.

Togo Igawa: how I became the RSC’s first Japanese actor

Quote
During the rehearsals of The Fair Maid of the West, the director Trevor Nunn gave me only one note: “Togo, your character, Alcade, I think he is always angry.” The next day, I started twitching my right shoulder when Alcade showed his anger. When we performed the play at the Swan’s official opening, with the Queen, Sean Bean whispered when we passed each other in the corridor: “Togo, the Queen laughed at your twitching.” It was a majestic honour for the first Japanese actor to become a member of the company.

Good looking obviously but yeah, no magnetism, no 'phwoar' manliness whatsoever.  Sean is positively dripping with testosterone and George, well, not!

I read a quote from someone who had met him and she said he is utterly charming, and even at her age gave her quite the flutter with his ability to make you feel as though you are the only woman in the room, the only woman who has ever mattered to him, however, she also said that he is *the* most manicured man she has ever met; every hair perfect, eyebrows immaculate, the cleanest pores she has ever seen, nails buffed like mirrors and little diamonds in his buttons.  Obviously there are times when our lad looks as though a facial might do him some good, and his hair has needed a wash in some interviews but I would much prefer his brand of 'real man' masculinity over George's any day. 

And how much time would GC need in the bathroom?  My rule has always been to avoid a man who has more products than me and spends more time in the bathroom than I do!

As to a nice person, well, not that long ago his friends and his pot-bellied pig came before relationships, and then there were/are the practical jokes.  He's a renowned practical joker keeping things going on and on, but, funnily enough, doesn't like it when he is the butt of the joke.  When "Gravity" came out, Tina Fey did that joke at an awards ceremony about George's character not being heroic in the film so much as that George would rather drift out into space and die than spend any time with a woman his own age - hilarious - but his 'retribution' went on for some time, all in the name of a good joke, but perhaps not really.

Also, one of his previous girlfriends - an English model/presenter called Lisa Snowdon - was interviewed after they broke up and said that the practical jokes were endless.  She had spent all day getting ready for an awards event and was wearing a white dress which I'm guessing he would have seen in advance, and he put a balloon with red wine in it on the top of the door so when she came in ... when you think about the time and effort spent making even someone as beautiful as her ready for a red carpet event ... let alone the cost of the no doubt beautiful and very expensive dress that was ruined (not to mention the surrounding furnishings), well, I don't think that was funny.  I wouldn't care who he was, that would be the end of that relationship for me.  So nice?  Nah, not so much!

Actor and former Mr Universe sets up Devon Bed and Breakfast for quiet life

Quote
“I remember sharing a car back from a set with Sean Bean and we were talking and I said I had a yacht in Turkey and he replied ‘you lucky bugger’. My whole impression of him is he has made a lot of money and made great films but he was envious of me with my boat.”

It's a small world.  I've just googled his B&B and discovered it's only a couple of streets away from a place I stayed in for a weekend break at the end of last year.

I wonder what Sean was more envious of... the boat in Turkey or the ability to switch off and laze about on said boat.  We have evidence from interviews that he admits to not being good at taking breaks (as in holidays) and being a bit of a workaholic.
Title: Re: Just a note
Post by: Amber on April 22, 2015, 06:19:31 PM

I could be wrong, we don't know him so all we have is what he says in interviews and a lot of conjecture, but I have always thought he is one of those men that didn't really get a chance to learn how to live well, and I think it's part of the working class, northern, work ethic thing.  My Dad was the same, and his Dad would have been too, and those ethics if you like, obviously rub off on children.  My father was always proud that he had never been unemployed, not one day; he had always finished a job either with holiday to use up or left a job on Friday and started another on Monday, not that he had that many.  He had been a specialist Japanese telegraphist in WWII - not the most useful thing to be in civvy street - so the day after he returned home after he was de-mobbed, he started on a bricklaying course because so much rebuilding was needed afterwards.  He went from that straight into a job with the government again with no time off.  He never collected any benefits either; he worked, he earned, he earned more than he spent and he paid for all he needed.  Benefits, to him, were for people who needed them, who couldn't work, and as he could, that was that, and he had his dour Scottish father to thank for those values but they are typical of northern, working class men of a certain age and even though my father, by his intelligence and his job, became middle class - just as Sean has - those values and ideas never left him and he truly didn't know what to do with himself when he had to take leave from work.  He went fishing, and not very often, but apart from that he just did work on our houses, home improvements, decorating, landscaping the gardens, whatever we needed or wanted to be done, and whatever would improve the value of the properties, and in the evening he watched television.  He didn't seem to know how to do much beyond the work, and the relaxation of television when he was too tired to do anything else.

From what I've read, Sean sounds the same and men like him need to learn how to relax, learn how to do other things that give them peace.  He says he reads, sleeps, watches television and potters in his garden, and there are the odd short breaks like Matera but the rest is all work, work, work.  He definitely needs a strong woman in his life to show him the way - if you will - show him what other things there are in life, what places there are to visit without it being a work thing, without thinking about work.  There are so many exhibitions, galleries and museums in London let alone everywhere else but unless you are fine doing those kind of things on your own, which he doesn't seem to be - only children have such an advantage in life in that respect - you need someone to do them with and that someone has to do the guiding in the case of someone like Sean.  There is so much more to life than he is getting with his workaholic nature but I'm betting he could learn - he is certainly intelligent enough - he just needs a knowledgeable and strong hand on the tiller, in my opinion.

Samantha Bond: "Pierce Brosnan is a better kisser than Sean Bean"

It isn’t that, it’s just I haven’t made a James Bond film in 17 years, and if you roll all my screen time into one it would be the smallest role I’ve ever done. So although I’m proud to have done them, I had a hoot, and yes, Pierce Brosnan is a great kisser, better than Sean Bean. But I don’t know what else to say.

It would be either Judi Dench or Sean Bean. Dame Judi can play just about anything, and always does it so superbly well.

He’s a Sheffield lad and when I was growing up I watched When Saturday Comes, a film about a footballer who fell off the rails a bit.

Don Carmody is probably not the first person to be convinced of the merits of television by The Game of Thrones.

The long-time film producer, who has been behind some of Canada’s most iconic movies as well as international hits such as 2002’s Oscar-winning Chicago, may be at the Banff World Media Festival to receive what amounts to a life-time achievement award, but he is a relative newcomer to this golden-age of television. And, at least partially, he has two members of the Westeros bunch to thank.


It was on the Toronto set of Silent Hill: Revelation that actors Sean Bean and Kit Harington — Ned Stark and Jon Snow, themselves —   finally convinced the producer to give this little HBO show they were on a chance.

“I wasn’t really watching television,” Carmody says. “But they just bugged me and bugged me. I finally watched it and went ‘Wow, that’s amazing.’ But not only that, I get it. It’s just a long movie, a serialization of a great story. So I understand that.

An interview with Paul Joseph Watson

Quote
Given that you are now bigger than Madonna on Twitter, a woman widely regarded as the biggest pop star in the world. Is it safe to say that you have overtaken Sean Bean as Sheffield’s most famous export?

Madonna is not the biggest anything anymore, she might be the oldest slag on the planet given her behaviour, which isn’t befitting of someone at virtually Grandma age. She needs to grow old gracefully.

Sean Bean’s popularity is also on the wane. I knew someone who met him in a pub in Sheffield and said he was a pompous twat. He also supports Sheffield Utd, which automatically makes him a c**t. I could never respect anyone who supports Sheffield Utd.

  Multi-Oscar winner Nick Park isn’t just a world-class filmmaker, he’s also a very lateral man when it comes to casting his films. For his new animated feature Early Man, that lands in cinemas here on January 25th, he’s given the two lead male vocal roles to Eddie Redmayne and Tom Hiddleston. But the way that he settled on both of those actors is very, very Nick Park-y.

For Redmayne, it wasn’t his Oscar-winning turn in The Theory Of Everything, his family movie credentials from Fantastic Beasts & Where To Find Them or his villain and a half in Jupiter Ascending. Rather, it was the 2008 horror Black Death, the film in which Redmayne was beaten up by Sean Bean. Off the back of that, Park reckoned – and was right – that Redmayne would be perfect to voice a 15-year old caveman.

I chatted to Redmayne about this last week, and he'd only just found out himself that Black Death was so pivotal. "My memory of that film was being in swamps in Germany being beaten up by Sean Bean", he laughed, adding "the fact that he's even seen Black Death means a great deal!"

In my case, I was working in a kitchen in London, when suddenly the famous English actor Sean Bean walked in to use the phone. We chatted for 10 minutes. What amazing, unusual, supernatural (even) experiences have you had defy the odds?!
