    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:

    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.

    History of Good Will Hunting/Ben and Matt's Dealing with the Weinsteins


    Just reading some stuff from the start of their careers via Vanity Fair. Boys were savy and fighters. Glad they won the day overall.

    The Great Wall

    An interesting article. What happens in China after the film's release. Updated Box-office 69100000 $!

    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.
