Ewan McGregor Interview ( that's probably rated mild R )

Finally . . . F-I-N-A-L-L-Y, I went to see that "Angels and Demons" starring Tom Hanks and Ewan McGregor last night ! *does a little happy dance*

IT was a LOT of fun and was REALLY well-made and fast-paced with an amazing turn of events that take place during the last thirty(?) minutes of the film so . . . I greatly enjoyed it, really !! ( Well, I liked it so much I even ordered the book on Amazon as SOON as I got home ! XD )

And . . . again, *sighs dreamily* with Ewan's warm smile and his strong, cultured, clipped accent, I was forced to melt into mushy goo right there in my reserved seat at the cinema . . . *laughs* Oh, if a friend of mine ever asked me to go there and watch the film with her again, I think I would ! Aww . . . you know, it was THAT great ! ( - except for the bloody, gory scenes where some people get brutally murdered, of course. -_-; )

Now, here's the link to the page where they have the Ewan Interview:

!!! Beware the HARSH REMARKS on Ewan and the films he's in . . . !!! T_T

First I'm glad you enjoyed the movie. I'm getting out to see it sometime this afternoon.

Second, I think you'll love the book. I haven't seen the movie yet, as I stated, but invariably the book is always better than the movie and I really enjoyed the book. I just finished rereading it so I'd remember it better when I went out to see the movie.

Third, whoever wrote that article you posted ia an ASS! Why be a reviewer if you don't seem to like anything about the person you're interviewing?? I did see movies on that list that I liked. I saw movies on that list that millions of people liked. How dare he use the phrase "unloved Star Wars prequels?"

The man has me so ticked off I'm tempted to enroll at the site so I can leave his review a nasty review!!!!!

I have learned to ignore half-baked journalists movie reviews. People either Love Ewan McGregor or Hate him....no in between....I think he was outstanding in Angels and Demons, I just wish they had included more of his backstory in the movie...The reason he killed the Pope was not the same in the book...So I hope you enjoy reading the book...You will understand Ewan's character better and see how really tragic his actions were.

Truth be told...when I first read the article last night after watching the film, I was almost tricked into believing that the book might not be that good and the film has not been loved by a majority of people....but then I remembered that I WAS actually moved by the story when I saw it at the cinema and that Ewan and his superb acting has made it all worth seeing it ( again & again, I mean ). So...I decided to ignore whatever this interviewer has said in the interview - but only "after" I posted the link to the article right up on my LJ - for all the LJ world to see ( as a sweet revenge ). :{

Oh...I'm SO glad you thought of it that way, too. And I also feels annoyed and a little sad that this incredibly rude, sarcastic, not-very-bright interviewer actually said those terrible things like "Prequels of SW are useless" and "Tom Hanks is a gutless swine" ! T_T

It kind of puzzles me though that Ewan actully ( had to have ? or ) had an interview with this sort of very impolite guy. :{

Well...*kicks a pebble* I won't let this interviewer spoil my mood that I still LOVE the story and would like to read the book, too. :)

Glad you had fun!

Oh...*gives a sigh of relief* I brought it back. "The link", I mean. It's been gone since last night back but...finally, it's back and up here. ( You'll find some awful things about our Ewan written there, though... T_T )

As a performer, McGregor has an expert's range in his singing, acting and dancing. There's no performer that I regard more highly.

Mmm...ME, TOO ! I like both his superb acting and the way he changes the tone of his voice to match the role he plays ! X}

Oh...you know, that's why so many Japanese fangirls call him "a chameleon actor" that he could even play a highly-educated prince, a thief, a soldier, a singer, a priest or even a male hustler. ^^;

I'm going to see that one though probably not 'til next month (when I get paid again). The book's really good, I think you'll like it. :)

Arigatoh for the comment ! And...the link that's been gone since last night when I did some editting on my cell-phone...um...I finally got it back ! It's up, now. :)

But, what's written in the article has made me really upset and angry. So, you'll have to brace yourself for some BAD remarks about Ewan in there, too. T_T

Wow, that's an immature little gobshite of an interviewer. He probably wants to upset people so don't let it upset you. :)

Arigatoh(Thank U)... Right now, I'm trying NOT to let it bother me anymore. ( The only trouble is "It already HAS".) ^_^;

But...at least, there's something I'm looking forward to. THE BOOK has just arrived ( JPT: 19May ). So, I can finally enjoy the more detailed version of A&D ! Besides, rumour has it that Ewan('s character) often has his studly man-chest exposed in the book....*cough, cough, blushing* ^^;
