We were immediately enthralled when we saw this trailer for “The Tree of Life.” Director Terrence Malick also gave us the exquisite “Days of Heaven.” It takes place in the midwest in the ‘50’s and it’s the story of a little boy’s innocent journey through childhood with a dreamy mother and a realistic father. He ends up struggling with disillusionment in the modern world. Brad Pitt plays the dad and Sean Penn is the little boy when he grows up. Malick’s visuals are always so extraordinary that they stay with you for a long, pleasant time.

    Yes Janet the visuals look great, but the story is not my ‘cup of tea’.

    I was “IN” for the movie until you mentioned Sean Penn.
    You could not pay me for my time to sit in the movie house watching that s.o.b. I guess I am just not “worthy” to watch that scumbag in action. You can have him. Sorry Brad, I will have to skip this one.

    How do Brad and his crazy slut find time to non-stop grind out movie after movie and mostly in faraway places. AND her to constantly go to 3rd world countries and sit in a remote village with a scarf on her head. AND to take care of 6 spoiled brats, 5 or 6 mansions, yada yada yada. Even if they had armies of nannies, caretakers, secretaries, how can there be time to even read the newspaper. Maybe they are not of this world. BTW, constantly going up and down in a plane can cause blood clots, not to mention strange airplane germs everywhere.

    Ah “Indy” It’s called ticket sales and public popularity. It’s also called “Hollywood Clout” and Brad & Angie definately have IT!!

    Well, Angie has lost a bit of it with The Tourist, which did not meet expectations, and has been generally savaged by critics and movie goers.

    Angie’s action movies tend to perform well, but her “serious” movies don’t bring in the bucks, and are often laughable. PR spin, and Angie’s high profile smoke-screen that fact, but sooner or later the truth is going to catch up with her.

    Brad is beyond gifted. He is the Brando of our era. Benjamin Button was phenomenal and everything he touches turns to gold. Penn will always be Spicolli in my mind but he can be very intense. Milk was exceptional. This one looks like a buyer on D.V.D.

    I’m with you, jojo. I worship Malick’s work, but Penn is the kiss of death on any project, cinematic or whatever. Sorry, Terrence, but you’ve screwed the pooch in casting on this one. I won’t be seeing it.

    Patrick, “Brad is the Brando of our era”? Come on. That is your man-crush talking.

    Brad is just slightly better than Hugh Grant — what Hugh does with his fluttery eye-lashes Brad does with his cheek muscles…the ones on his face.

    Mancrush?! Can’t one appreciate high quality performance without being labeled something Wim or Strom would say?

  12. By SebastianCanada

    Patrick, there is nothing wrong with a man-crush — it does not imply homosexuality (not that there is anything wrong with that). Actually, it implies the opposite.

    Sebastian, I agree with your assessment on Brad. While he is beautiful indeed, I’ve never believed him in any role or forgot that he was “THE Brad” (cheeck flexing and all). Yes, he does do that pretty much constantly, so much so that I can see it in my mind at will, not that I want to, it’s just THERE, like a benign tumor.

    And I don’t hate Sean Penn, think he’s a pretty good actor, but I can’t see him as the son of Brad. Nope, ain’t happ’n. Don’t they try at all any more to actually match the people who are supposedly RELATED? Seems NOT.

    Cheek muscle flexing, whatever you call it, Brad has just been peed-off by his nut-case partner. It’s well known Bill Clinton had a bad temper and was constantly doing this. lol

    Brad, you need to get your kids away from that screaming psycho and let them grow up in one place, make friends and have peace in their lives. The stories in the tabs about what Shiloh is going through make me shudder. Where are your BALLS?

  16. By SebastianCanada
    On December 16, 2010 at

    Naomi, maybe Brad’s balls are a minuscule as his penis is purported to be.

    I can’t stand the baby-buying, AC/DC Angelina. She always has that regal smirk on her face like she’s thinking…”Damn, it is so great to be me, I got it ALL”.

    Sebastian..RE Brad’s ba**s….This comes to mind; an article in Enquirer (or Globe)…As the divorce was pending, Jennifer paid $5000 for a Mexican restaurant to stay open for about 3 hours after closing. Mexican is her fave food. She was throwing down enchiladas and margaritas, crying on the shoulders of about a dozen of her girlfriends about losing the ‘great one’. Then she started laughing and told her friends that in the ..ahem…weiner department that his grapes and noodle were well below par. Is story true or not? I report what I read and you decide.

    Ya, Indy, I remember reading an item about that. And, as I have been saying to Reta RE closeted gay celeb, you have to look at how the evidence builds.

    Something is up with Brad. He puts up with too much from Angie. Gossip says that she is a bully, even abusive to him. Then there is the kid shopping, etc., etc. There is a reason he tolerates such a creepy, crazy harpy. I don’t believe he is gay, so…the shrinky-dink theory has it for now.

    I like Brad, I think he’s a really nice man and that Angie has broken him down. He might be depressed and unable to make decisions. I read he smokes weed all day long and that can have an effect on his decision making ability too. Hopefully his family will step up and save him and the kids. Shiloh is going to have major mental problems if this keeps up.

    Indy, you get some great gossip. Thanks.

    Bettye, thanks. And I forgot to add that the one who overheard the conversations and secretly took the pics was the waiter they had for the 3 or so hours. I think she gave him a $1000 tip. Ah, the life of the rich and famous.

    This bad boy seems to have calmed down since he got serious about his former pornstar girlfriend and he has his friends wondering WHY. What’s so special about HER? We hear she keeps him satisfied by supplying her MALE porn costars for his entertainment. The bad boy pays each guy $5000 per visit so they are highly motivated to make him happy. It’s a family affair – the girlfriend watches while the bad boy fiddles around with the guys!
