Quote:Rereading through this thread, I suspect lyden meant "fate" instead of "faith" - is that right, lyden?
Quote:Is life getting back to normal ? I feel shredded. What a week...
Quote:when Russell talks about how miserable he is being away from home and family, I sometimes fear he'll stay home for five years to raise Charlie, paint the house white, and learn to cook a macrobiotic diet.

Quote: From Lyden: Mara, Thank you for noticingSorry, my English is self made... I learned it by myself
Quote:Please see my comment over at the annex (Yahoo Group). I suspect Mercer management and legal counsel have told Nestor he's done enough damage and to keep his mouth shut on this.
Quote:I think damage to the Mercer has been done. Don't think there's anything Russell could say that would reverse it. Even if he said, "Yes, I came down spoiling for a fight and even though the clerk offered to swim to Australia and deliver my message in person, I still threw the phone at him."Russell went proactive right out of the cell door. His PR team coached him well in what to say and what not to say and to use Nestor's first name rather than the person at the desk. He'll come out of this fray intact. I think he may even have won some backers.The Mercer has gotten the kind of press no hotel would want and all they had to say is that Mr. Crowe is welcome back. Which, in effect, says, "You're an asshole but we'll be happy to take your money." Anyone who's ever worked in the service industry thinks they f*cked up and anyone who's ever been on the bad side of an encounter with a hotel staff person thinks they f*cked up. That pretty well takes care of 99.9 percent of the civilized world.Mercer management must be tearing their hair out and trying to figure out how soon they can fire Nestor without stirring up more shite. If they're smart they'll seriously re-evalute their service standards, implement strict customer service training, and restructure their protocol for handling incidents. This situation showed the Mercer in a poor light on a number of points.

Quote:You should have seen the waves of hostility I sent toward the autograph hounds outside NBC.
Quote:What I really fear is that phonegate will be scapegoated for CM's less than spectacular performance.
Quote:I just pray word of mouth will slowly grow. I hate to think that the demographic film-going majority,which seems to comprise of 18-25 year olds, is going to shut out all future hope for adult,intelligent drama.
Quote:Russell is a believer, he thinks all the people he meets are good and treats them right but, you see, it isn't so.

Quote:a bunch of teenagers, boys and girls, came in at the last minute, and sat in the front row. Throughout the first part of the movie, they were talking and laughing and giggling and talking on their cells, reaching across the seats, throwing candy at each other...

Quote:No one from the top studio heads to the movie pundits to the man on the street really know what the problem is and they're still trying to figure it out. Their confusion is pretty clearly stated in the NYTImes pieceThe fact is, fewer people are going to the movies every year and no one is sure why.There are a lot of reasons being tossed about, and I believe some of them are valid, especially after discussions with real life and cyber friends both.Older folks don't like going to the theaters in general, don't like fighting the kiddie crowds, the noisy teen crowds and just plain crowds. Don't like the excruciatingly loud MTV style commercials and 49 trailers they have to sit through just to watch the movie.More and more people are buying home entertainment centers with BIG screen TVs, surround sound and the whole ball of wax. Many of these folks don't give a hoot about seeing a movie, any movie, on the theater screens and had just as soon wait until it comes out on DVD. Which leads me to...The time between theater release and DVD is getting shorter and shorter. I think the average is now 6 months, but sometimes even 4. Who but the most avid cinephile can't wait 4-6 months?
Quote:On Sunday, I sat down just before the above began.I finished my entire bag of popcorn before the movie started.*sigh*

Quote:phlmth, 'said friend' doesn't mind being called by name as long as it's something nice And 'said friend' didn't mind hanging for an hour before the show. It gave me time to talk to you which I don't get a chance to do often enough and the ice cream cooled my half-baked brain What was fun was actually being of such a like mind about Cinderella Man that we were finishing each other's sentences on the trip home. Or maybe it was more of two half brains equaling a whole
