  • From Entertainment Weekly's list of the best action movies ever made:

    17. The Bourne Supremacy
    Directed by Paul Greengrass 2004
    Where Bond thrillers are smooth like vodka, the Bourne films like to play rough. And docudramarian Paul Greengrass (United 93) was the perfect choice to fill in the blind spots of amnesiac assassin Jason Bourne (Matt Damon); his handheld style expertly paints the world of a man whose life is jagged around the edges. Bonus: Now you know it's possible to beat the snot out of a man using a magazine. Dan Bradley (stunt coordinator): "I said, 'I think it would be great if Bourne drops 25 feet to the boat.' Matt is not terribly comfortable with heights. But he's like, 'Bourne doesn't have a whole lot of dialogue, so I should do something for my money.'"

  • From Life and Style magazine, via Celebrity Baby Scoop:

    Matt and Luciana's love
    Matt Damon has never been happier! We all know Matt loves his wife Luciana and his Ocean's 13 co-stars love her, too! His pals have been overhead saying "She's down-to-earth and fun!" What does Matt admire most about his wife? She helped him "realize his dream of fatherhood." An insider goes on to say Matt & Luciana want "at least one more" child.

    Great news about Imperial Life in the Emerald City winning the BBC prize, thanks for the news on that Jan. I read it really quickly because it was such a page turner, my jaw was permanently on the floor!!

    The poster for Bourne Ultimatum has grown on me a lot. One of the things I like about Matt is that when you look into his eyes there's a real person looking back at you, beautifully done. The one of him with the gun in his hand reminds me of the poster for The Shooter as someone else mentioned and another film that's hovering on the edge of my memory.

    I wasn't a fan during his Good Will Hunting days (so have enjoyed the old quotes that you posted here recently Felicity), but over the last few years his growth as an actor has been phenomenal. To me he comes across as someone who is hard-working, sincere, cares about others less fortunate than himself but is fun with a great sense of humour, and it's nice to see someone in the public eye who hasn't let fame change their values or ruin them. Obviously he isn't perfect, and he has his off days as we all do, but there is a lot to like about him.

    I don't want to marry him or have his babies, but he's definitely one of the good ones. Marcia

    I so agree with you, Matt does look HOT in the hawaii piccies, so much! And They do look like there having a good time - glad there having time together and the families. Surfing pics are funny, and the other pics of them together are all cool (Not sure about Ben's yellow shorts though...maybe thats me)
    and the part about 'Matt and Luciana's love' from one of the magazine's is adorable! Shes wonderful for him.

    -Cass
    Thanks for your work - much appreciated.

    Re: Larger photos of Lucy and Isabella on the beach

    Thanks Susan. They're different photos from the Ramey set, but identical in principle (without Matt being included). Pretty damn cute - and our first pics of Alexia in Hawaii.

    I am in heaven with all these great photos of the boys in such a heavenly backdrop. I especially love the two pictures you chose to post, Felcity. They're definitely the best of the bunch, and that's saying a lot. I'm really happy for them, getting to spend an exotic vacation together. And I agree with everyone saying how happy they look. It's got the be the fun, the family, and, of course, each other that has that effect on them.

    Re: Matt coming back to Boise

    I live in Idaho. I missed the screening of the other two Bourne movies. Sadly, I don't forsee making it down to Boise for Ultimatum.
    Curses!
