    FABULOUS shot of Matt and Casey!

    Can anybody tell what Matt is wearing around his wrist? Is that a watch or bracelets? Wristbands?

    Re: Pic

    Probably the same bracelets he has been wearing for a while (with a few more?)

    New pic in New York:

    Disappointing but understandable. He probably didn't want to step into Casey's spotlight.

    RE: Re: Pic

    Hmmm... Interesting. Matt doesn't seem the type of guy to buy himself jewelry. I wonder if it was a gift from a colleague who worked on The Great Wall movie.

    I've been wearing similar bracelets since July. I'm such a copy cat. LOL

    Random vlogger

    Post from this random vlogger - she saw Matt in a ski store on Melrose Avenue. Further confirmation of the skiing trip, if any was needed.

    Great Wall

    Nice LA Times article pulling together most aspects of the reporting.



    Random thought: While I understand China's desire to make a larger place for itself in the international movie business, I think the comparative insularity of its culture (a great culture, but still insular) means it's at an inevitable disadvantage against America, simply because the US is a nation of immigrants. At least for now. Lol.

    'The Great Wall'

    At me also, Hanna. Only I will be delighted that the new post about Matt has appeared, I come, and there is a fiasco.))

    Matt Damon’s ‘Great Wall’ Slammed as ‘Low Quality’ by Head of China’s People’s Choice Awards

    I don't understand how critics who haven't shot any film in his life can humiliate work of tens and even hundreds of people. He is angry what Matt hasn't come to his show? Damon has wanted to act in the movie of the great Chinese director, in the historical imagination with the good purpose - to promote rapprochement culture of two great countries. How it is possible to condemn him for it?
    Even it is interesting that for the movie it has turned out. I was read good responses from the audience.

    After the first week of hireсThe Great Wall already became the most cash in career Zhang Yimou.
    Good article about critics and the ordinary audience in Chinese.

    RE: 'The Great Wall'

    Hey don't take those critics too serious. It's not very accurate to say THAT organization is China's People's Choice Award. It's not an equivalent and nor has any real impact on China's film industry. So just let it be. That being said, since I'm in China I already watched the Great Wall in theater. It's entertaining. I can say it's a good blockbuster at best. But this movie still has many flaws especially if you think about the director is Zhang Yimou who is considered No.1 director of China so you must have a higher expectation. I think it's the reason why Chinese critics are so angry with this movie. But don't worry it's definitely worth your money and time.

    Incorporated - no spoilers

    Since a number of the people who post here will not have had a chance to see it, I thought I'd give a non-spoilery update on Incorporated. I'm now four episodes in. I've started to enjoy it for its own sake and to look forward to it. The show is pretty good - they are continuing to deepen the central characters and bring on interesting new ones. They're also continuing to imaginatively present more information on the world of this show. I'm still not sure if the lead's central motivation is strong enough to sustain a series, but perhaps they are gradually building to a reveal on that.

    Interview with Matt

    BBC Radio 1's 'Movies that made me' audio version:


    Matt starts after the 2 hour mark and includes good music clips from films. I linked the original video during the Bourne promo but it was geo-blocked to everyone outside the UK. But this audio interview can be heard by all. Stories about GWH, Saving Private Ryan (new version of old story), Ripley, O11, Bourne and Rounders.

    RE: Behind the scenes Jason Bourne

    He was in INCREDIBLE shape.. he worked so hard to get that body and to sell the fight scenes with the choreography and the film itself, and the movie wasn't that bad, it's just the dialogue and the script was a little hazy and lazy. The action was impeccable, but the writing not so much. I guess I expected a little more for a return and a reprise!
    Still pretty good movie, but sometimes I think it could've been a little better..
    And DAMN HE WAS HOT AS HELL IN THIS MOVIE. Jealous of Luci!! ❤️️😂😂😂

    Debbie Reynolds

    Hi All,
    I'm sure you've heard of sweet Debbie Reynolds passing :(
    I was very fortunate to meet her a few years ago at a book signing and even got to see a bulk of her Hollywood Memorabilia Collection before it was auctioned. Tonight I remembered she was in Behind The Candelabra but unfortunately cannot find a single photo of Debbie and Matt together. If anyone has see one please share!!!
    Thank you!

    RE: Debbie Reynolds

    I couldn't find a casual shot of them but here's a screen shot of one of their scenes together. I hadn't remembered what a great costume and make-up job she wore for this. She was fabulous in it, too.


    2016 is, at least from an American perspective, the suckiest year in recent memory.

    Re: Debbie Reynolds

    Thanks Paula! I wish there had been a casual shot. In her autobio she said that Matt was very patient with her and had the bluest eyes. I cannot recall him though making comment on working with her unfortunately.

    2016 was good to me personally, but for losing entertainers it was a low year.
