Water For Elephants!


is in theaters NOW.
Please go see it.
Support Robert.

Unfortunately, I won't be able to see it
until Monday because I'm rather busy
this Easter weekend...
But I expect ALL of you to see it at least
Twice in that time!

I love and adore Robert Pattinson
And I want this movie to rock the box office!

Quick Final Thoughts.


2. Is Kristen going on a road trip?
Or would that be plane trip?

London is calling.
Can't you hear it?
It's not just calling...
So very loud.


4.  How many times do you think Kristen
will have seen WFE by the end of this promo?
Maybe more by the time its all said and done.


6. Where do you think Rob and Kristen are...
at this very moment?
I can guarantee you one thing...
They are TOGETHER.
As always.

This post is brought to you by the letter *P*


P for leaving on a jet plane.
Don't know when they'll be back again...

P for  Pretty

and Pretty...

Just because.

THIS is what you get to look at when you go see


Bye for now

Groovie said...


I saw the midnight showing last night, and it was excellent! Very beautiful movie, Tai is amazing, Rob is wonderful and Reese & Christoph are great too.

Love all the pix today and the cute lil elephant smiley thingie lol!

Road/plane trip through Europe certainly doesn't seem like a bad way to spend some down time, wherever she ends up hope she has a good time! And hopefully they aren't working too hard this weekend!

Happy Friday everyone! Get to the theatre this weekend!!

angelica1 said...

OCD56 said...

Yes, I'm definitely going to see WFE tonight and probably again this weekend. Read the book twice and loved it. I will definitely support Rob in every movie that he does. He is such a sweetheart and of course I love to see him on screen because he is so gorgeous.

Penny Lane said...

Rose better watch out because the nonnies will say she's on the PR payroll of Summit or Fox or someone.

I'm definitely seeing WFE this Sunday.

Hello to everyone passing by.

christine said...

Syd said...

Well done Rose---check is in the mail--LOL

Rhonda said...

Hi Rose,

I saw the movie this afternoon, it was wonderful! It's a big, beautiful, old-fashioned Hollywood movie. Rob and Reese were amazing, Christoph brilliant and Tai is incredible. I loved everything about it :)

Hi Everyone!

Rhonda said...

Hi Sgt Syd- How are you?

Teeth said...

I just saw it.

Was an amazing movie, I loved the book.

Rob looked beyond sexy. I can't wait for breaking dawn now- More sexy!

Trace said...

wlm said...

Hi,Rose and Roseland!

Can't wait to see WFE! But here in Brazil, only April 29th...so hard wait...the way...see Rob in all interviews, shows, pictures... Rob's overdose!

Happy Easter for all!

Cool...thanks! Apreciate your job...so much!

dottie said...

SUPER! I just noticed your avi. Beautiful baby boy!!! I was hoping you'd show a pic but didn't want to ask.

Every one of my friends who have seen WFE are raving about it. I'm so happy for Rob & everyone else involved.

It's always nice to see you here, SGT SYD. :)

CarolB said...

Saw Water for Elephants this morning. Lovely! It was hard to see what was going on in every scene because I couldn't keep my eyes off smokin' hot Rob. Rosie/Tai was wonderful too. I plan to see the movie again next week.

beaculen said...

Just got back from WFE, if you haven't seen it you seriously need to. They kept all the best parts of the book and totally captured the feel of the circus. It really is one of the best films Ive seen in a while, everyone in the theatre clapped at the end. And I'm proud to say the theatre wasn't filled with 13 year olds. Rob REALLY proves he can act, he makes you want to cheer for his character, when he's happy your happy, when he's upset your upset. The whole cast was perfect and there is nothing I would want to change. I hope this makes Robert the huge star that he deserves to be. Thanks Rose for your post, I can't wait to read what you think.

Robin said...

I went to see WFE today and absolutely loved it. I don't know when I've seen an actor so perfectly suited to the period of the movie. Rob was beautiful and wonderfully cast as Jacob.
All the actors were wonderful. And who wouldn't fall in love with Rosie?!
Did I say Rob was beautiful and perfect in this movie? He was! I'm going to see WFE twice tomorrow -- just for Rob. I also want this movie to succeed. Love that man!

*I*Believe* said...

Just saw Water For Elephants!!! Wow, it was EXCELLENT! And I'm not just saying that. Rob, as Jacob, takes you on an emotional roller coaster. I even cried. Cinematography was spectacular, the colors and textures are soooo rich. You even see the textures inside the box cars.

As for the "lack of chemistry" between Rob and Reese, well just wait until you see the sex scene...shmexy!

Waltz totally hit the mark the way he showed August's personality changes on a dime.

What was the best part of the movie?


oldcoach said...

Saw it today and probably again tomorrow. Loved it.

Tigerlily said...

The stills from the movie look beautiful enough.. can't wait to see the film. It comes out here on 6th May. Tickets booked. It can't come quickly enough!!

Lucky Roslanders whom have seen it.

Have a great Easter everyone. :)

olivia said...

Dear Rose,

You are so very right! GO SEE WFE!

It was spectacular.
From the actors, to the animals, to the light filtering through the tents, to the rich color of the costumes and circus banners, to the music, to the many real circus performers, the musicians, the set design, the magnificent train and circus wagons, the loving attention to authentic detail......truely spectacular. A very beautiful movie that met my every expectation. Bravo to all involved, Francis Lawrence, Reese, Cristoph, Hal, Tai, ....everyone. And the most special and best "bravo" to Rob. Wonderful, wonderful job! So very happy for him. He truly shines as Jacob in this movie.

As soon as the film ended, I really wished I could go back inside the theatre and sit through it again. The ending is lovely and leaves you wanting more. Lots of positive comments were made as people left the theatre. Many mentioned that they would be returning, bringing others with them to future showings.

Special hugs to Smitty and Gruff. Always wishing you both the very best.
Hug for Syd.
Hugs for y'all Roseland.

30 said...


Well I of course just got back from seeing WFE! And let me say, if anyone misses this it is SO there loss. I am so proud of Rob right now, and this movie was so intense I had too cover my eyes at certain parts.Even yelled at the screen a few times too. A total emotional roller coaster!! I want too say more but dont want too ruin it for anyone who hasn't seen it yet.

Also there were mainly older women and MEN in my movie theater fans of the book I assume.A few teens AND THE FUCKEN audience clapped when it was over!(including me) They loved it!

Freddie said...

Hi all,

I’m just back in after seeing Water For Elephants – twice, in fact. I went this afternoon and then turned around and went right back out to see it a second time.

I thought it was beautifully done. Rob not only looks outrageously handsome (words are truly inadequate) but he portrays a beautiful soul, and he gives us a wonderful performance. So much of the movie is communicated through Jacob’s visual expressions (his joy at seeing the animals, his attraction to Marlena, his horror at seeing August’s abuses), and Rob, who is so expressive, conveyed the emotions beautifully. I think Rob was perfectly cast for Jacob. I can’t imagine anyone else in the part now.

At the first showing, I think I was feeling a bit like a nervous, protective mother hen, wanting more than anything for Rob to do well (which he did). For the second viewing, I relaxed and enjoyed the movie even that much more. I think Christoph and Reese were wonderful as well, but I confess it was the veteran, Hal Holbrook who really touched me. Such a powerful performance in a just a few scenes.

Despite any assertions about a supposed lack of chemistry, I thought the love scenes were lovely and well suited for the feel of the movie overall.

I laughed when Jacob walked through the menagerie looking at the animals for the first time. One of the cars had a caged hyena – seemed appropriate.

As was the case with Beaculen, the audience clapped at the end of the movie at one of my showings, and people were complimentary in their comments on their way out of the theatre.

So my congratulations to Rob and his fellow actors. I hope it achieves the success it deserves.

*I*Believe* said...

Hi Freddie!

Freddie said...

Hi 30 and Olivia - it sounds like we had very similar experiences at the movie. I hope the positive word of mouth spurs other people to see it or see it again.

Freddie said...

IB!!! How are you doing?

30 said...

Hi Freddie Hi Oliva! :)

I agree about the mother hen stuff. I was watching SO intensely at audience reactions and how many people come out too see it and How packed the theater was, I want Rob to gain respect so bad from people other than Twilight fans.

The people behind me were probably like why does this person keep turning around in her seat. lol

30 said...

"ugh" typos in my last post and I am too tired too fix, sorry all.

Freddie said...

30 - LOL. I was doing the same thing. Funny how invested I feel in wanting this movie to do well.

*I*Believe* said...

I am doing great, now that I have seen the WFE! Did you hear Jacob reference Albany? That is where I live!! They also referenced the Albany Zoo but there is no such thing.

30 said...

Freddie I think we are invested in Rob and his career he already has us as a fan of course.I just want others too respect him and see that talent and NOT "Edward" ( I could get shot if a Twilight fan heard me say that. lol)

Freddie said...

IB - I heard the references to Albany - you're famous. I didn't know there wasn't a zoo however. Funny.

I loved the scene of Jacob walking through the menagerie and he comes up to the giraffe. The look on Rob's face was worth the price of admission.

Freddie said...

30 - you're so right. I wouldn't worry about a Twilight fan hearing that. A true Rob fan wants what you want.

*I*Believe* said...

And they pain in Rob's eyes when he goes back to the train...and sees things missing...if you know what part I mean...trying not to spoil things....

*I*Believe* said...

**the pain

Freddie said...

IB - yes, very effective. Very moving.

Birdie said...

Olivia,Freddie,IB and 30,
I could just say DITTO,but...
I had some of the same sentiments. I didn't want it to end and could have sat through it a second time.
Christoph was perfectly menancing. I wanted to take Tai home. I have seen Reese in other films but thought she has never looked lovlier. She was perfect as Marlena.
Now, Rob.... the camera certainly loves this man. Rob did not have huge speaking parts but was able to portray so much with his expressions. God, he is stunning. Rose, you had better hold on to your hat because he has never looked better. You should feel very proud Mr. Pattinson, you did a fine,fine job.
It was a very touching,visually beautiful film. I loved everything about it and will definitely see this multiple times.

Penny Lane said...

Hi Believe, 30 and Freddie,

I have not seen the movie yet but so interesting to hear there was applause at the end. I saw some twitter comments that said the same thing. The only movie I've seen recently that had that response was The King's Speech and we know how well that one turned out.

real pr pro said...

Deadline Hollywood (whioh reports on the business side of the industy) confirms earlier reports that WFE is overperforming against early estimates, with the single day gross indicating they they could end up with a total weekend gross in the high teens. Nikki Finke reports:

"But overperforming is Fox's intriguing for adults and Robert Pattinson's Twi-hards Water For Elephants based on Sara Gruen's best-selling book and written by Richard LaGravenese and directed by Francis Lawrence. 'Terrific start for Elephants as we could hit higher teens,' a Fox exec tells me."

*I*Believe* said...

I have to laugh and did chuckle during the movie because every time Jacob was walking, like when he was walking down the railroad tracks, I was thinking of Rose!! She will be drooling when she sees him walk!

Freddie said...

Hey Birdie and Penny.

Birdie - I would recommend a second (or third...fourth viewing). As I said above, I enjoyed it even that much more the second time. And Rob is such a beautiful man (inside and out).

Penny - I hope you enjoy it when you do get to see it. Lets hope the audience reaction, like with The King's Speech, bodes well.

30 said...

Hi PL! I am so excited for Rob and the cast. Reese looked gorges defiantly not 34.:)I wanted too beat the crap out of Christoper's character, but that's a good thing I guess I felt the emotions on a very real level.Rob looked amazing as usual even sweaty and dirty :)

I cant wait for everyone here at Roseland too see it.

Freddie said...

IB - Rose's level of intoxication should go off the scale. I can't wait to hear her reaction.

PR Pro - thanks for the update. I sure hope the early stats are indicative of a strong weekend finish.

*I*Believe* said...

Hi Birdie and RealPro!

RealPro~That is great news! Thanks for the information.

There were many older women and MEN in the audience at my showing and a lot of young women and teens.

Penny Lane said...

I'm going Sunday with my daughter. She is a so-so Rob and Twilight fan so it will be interesting to see how she responds. She does cry at the least little thing so I better be prepared I hear.

30 said...

Hi PrPro,

Awesome news!Please keep us updated, fingers and toes crossed over here.

Freddie said...

Penny - there are a couple of places where the water works could start. I was teary-eyed at the end of the movie both times I saw it.

*I*Believe* said...

Maybe we should all pitch in and get Rose a drool bib!

I see I missed Srgt. Syd earlier :(

Birdie said...

I would probably have done the same if I had started out ealier. I want to know when I can buy the DVD!

*I*Believe* said...

Freddie, me too, I walked out all teary eyed...I loved how they finished things off....wink, wink....wasn't that well done?

30 said...

PL I have too warn you, there are disturbing scenes with the animals and being abused but that's how it was back then. Those scenes upset me too the core.

*I*Believe* said...

Sadly, I just read something today that said that abuse, especially of young elephants is STILL a problem.

Freddie said...

Oh IB - LOL. Yes, a drool bib. That would be appropriate. Maybe we should arrange for medics skilled in CPR to be on site for her.

I'm sorry to have missed Sgt. Syd as well. I'm still loving his avi.

*I*Believe* said...

BTW, just so you guys know, the horse in my avi has nothing to do with WFE, it's a wild horse from Asseteague Island.

Penny Lane said...


She read the book and she's an adult but I'm not going to remind her about those scenes because she probably won't go then.

I keep reading all these comments about the ending being tearfully good. I assume they changed it from the book. Don't tell me, just tell me if it worked well.

Freddie said...

I do NOT understand animal abuse. It is despicable.

real pr pro said...

I think WFE is going to do well for the same reason that the King's Speech was the surprise winner at the boxoffice -- Baby Boomers have altered the box office landscape, making the older movie=gower an important audience, one that can be counted on beyond the usual "make or break" opening weekend. Take a look at this terrific article from the New York Times and you'll see why WFE could be the right film at the right time>


Joseph said...

Don't worry Rose i'm totally on with making big numbers at the box office for WFE but not just for Rob but also because my daughter & I went to the midnight showing on Thurs. and were blown away by how utterly fantastic it was. We knew it was going to be more than good but AWESOME, UNBELIEVABLE, FANTASTIC,FANOMINAL are some other words I would use. We plan on going again tomorrow (sat) and then again maybe on monday evening and as much as we can while it's on in theatre's. Rob was so fantastic in this movie I know everyone will have to see him for the great actor he really is now.
Have a great Easter and take some tissues with you when you see the movie there was a lot of crying in the theatre thurs nite just from the pure beauty of the story.

30 said...

PL the ending was beautiful. :) Too get too that part was an amazing emotional ride.

*I*Believe* said...

PL~The ending worked too well...that is why I was choked up...wait until you see it and you will understand :)

AHHHH, those of us who have seen the movie need code words! I so want to talk about the ending with everyone!!!!

Penny Lane said...


Do you want me to leave so you can discuss the ending? This is so ridiculous but I don't remember being so excited to see a movie in a long time.

30 said...

I have too go too bed, long work day tomorrow ahead. Hopefully I can go again during the week.

Goodnight "I" Freddie and PL. :)

*I*Believe* said...

No, PL, don't leave...it is not fair to spill the beans to you guys who have yet to go...just think about all of the fun we'll have after we all see it :)

Freddie said...

Night 30 - have a good one.

*I*Believe* said...

Bye 30!

*I*Believe* said...

PL..just think of me when they mention Albany..LOL

Penny Lane said...

Good night 30. I'm heading out to read too.

If I don't check in tomorrow,

Happy Easter everyone!

Freddie said...

Same to you Penny. I hope the Easter bunny is good to you.

*I*Believe* said...

Good Night PL! Be well!

Freddie said...

IB - I think I'm going to call it a day as well. I'm not sure why I'm tired (I slept gloriously late today), but I think I'm going to head off to bed.

Have a good evening. Hope to catch up with you tomorrow.

*I*Believe* said...

I'm out too! Bye!

dottie said...

Hey everyone. Just wanted to share that WFE is playing on 2 screens at my local theater & BOTH were sold out tonight!

Suwi said...

i seen it and love it!
sorry my english

DreamerKind said...

Too many happenings are happening around me, so will be on later today to say, hey, and go on about WFE!

Am planning to go see it again this weekend, so that tells you almost everything, doesn't it, about what I think of the film?

Best wishes to you all for a lovely weekend or weekend of lovely holidays.

Super hugs for Rose, Gruff, Smitty and ole Syd, too!


Rhonda said...

Good(early)Morning Roseland!

I've just read over some of the comments from last night, and I agree, of course. I already have plans to see it again on Monday. I loved everything about it :)

Happy Easter Weekend Everyone!

Smitty, Gruff and Syd- Wishing you the best this weekend, and always. ((Hugs))

despoina said...

WATER FOR ELEPHANTS will come in Greece in 5th May:(i know it's tooooo looong....i can't wait!i don't want to wait!Anyway i'm gonna see this whenever it comes...don't worry Rose i've got a feeling that THE MOVIE is gonna ROCK the box office!But at least it's not the most important thing,the most important thing is that people should appreciate Rob's hard work and don't think he's just a PALE VAMPIRE!?!So have all guys a happy Easter weekend!!!I <3 U ALL!

LJ said...

Soooo glad I am reading WFE is doing great....I'm positive it will do great here too! I know so many people that are planning to go and see it.

Happy St George's day!!!

Much love,

katy said...

Hello, Roseland!!

Dottie, Rhonda, Freddie, 30. Olivia, Groovie, Believe, Birdie, Beaculen, you are all SO lucky to have seen it and I am SO happy that you only have wonderful things to say about WFE. I'm getting more and more excited each day to see it. :)))

Super, I hope you can see WFE today start to finish.

Real Pro, Thank you for the update :)))

Hugs to all and special hugs to Gruff and Smitty. Always wishing you both the very best of everything ( and you too Srgt. Syd)

Berry said...

For thoes of you who have yet to see WFE you will not be dissappointed! It was excellent...Rob was wonderful! Of course Tai, Reese and Christoph were great also! It stayed true to the book...such a good story. The theather was full, lots of men in the mix! I can not wait to go see it again! Happy Easter everyone!

real pr pro said...

Check this out -- seems like WFE will indeed be Rob's springboad to a more diverse audience and fanbase:

Fiorels said...

Hey Roseland...
So happy you all enjoyed WFE... I had no doubt and you're getting me more and more excited to watch it!!!
I can't wait!!!

And am so glad that Rob is having such good critics for it..
I think it definitely has nothing to do with RM...

Penny Lane said...

Pr Pro,

I too have read various accounts of applause occuring at the end of the movie. I remember my parents saying people always applauded at the end of good movies back in the day. Another thing, most baby boomers aren't that aware of Twilight so he will be picking up a new fanbase that is just impressed with his acting and to a lesser degree his looks, but that part is inevitable.

Annie said...

Good afternoon Roseland!

I went to the 10:45 AM showing of Water For Elephants today (Had too long and too late a day to go yesterday).


Hal Holbrook was phenomenal as older Jacob.

Christoph Waltz was memerizing as August.

I have to confess I was a bit worried about Reese as Marlena but she was very good and stunning.

What can one say about Rosie? Brilliant! Her scenes were some of the most gut wrenching.


Rob was truly magnificent as the younger Jacob. He conveyed a lot of emotion with a look alone. He embodied that role.

Kudos to the supporting cast as well.

The audience at this showing was a mixed bag (lots of couples, older and younger and the cinema was about 3/4 full for the first showing of the day.

There was loud applause at the end of the movie.
It's a beautiful movie and I enjoyed it immensely.

beaculen said...

Just got back from seeing Wfe for the second time. Even more amazing, I seriously could watch this film over and over. Everyone in the audience left talking about how great it was. Man I'm gonna have to see it agaain, it really is that good. Yeaahhh Rob!

sjjw said...

I saw WFE last night w/ five friends. None of them were Twilight fans, so were not that familiar with Rob. Several said they wanted to go because they had heard good things about it or b/c they had read the book. the movie did not disappoint! It was beautiful and a really really good film. We all truly enjoyed it. The theater was sold out for all showings last night. The audience was mostly older, but I did see it at a Cinebistro. Lots of couples. there was applause at the end too, as many are reporting! I can't wait to see it again.

The review in my local paper gave it 3.5 out of 4 stars! Hubs may even go with me to see it next time....

Congrats to all on a great movie!

Frances said...

WFE was fabulous! I really felt transported back to the 1930's at the Benzini Bros.Circus. The circus performers were lovely in their period costumes. Rob was excellent as Jacob. The part where he discovered Rosie the elephant only understood the Polish language (after being beaten), and taught August to speak the Polish words was precious. (I am part Polish). Reese was beautiful as Marlena the Circus star attraction,
and Christoph as August was superb.
I will surely see this movie again.
Bravo Rob!

real pr pro said...

Just got back from seeing WFE -- the experience reminded me of the first time I saw Titanic back in 1997. A theater packed with people of all ages, all swept up in a romantic story seeped in the aura of a bygone world, celebrating values and emotions that are all too rare in this day and age. I went with a friend who has been going through a very rough divorce and has gotten very pessimistic about life, and afterward she kept thanking me for encouraging her to go because it made her feel hopeful that they are better things to come for her. To me, that's the best possible review any movie can get!

DreamerKind said...

Love-Gotta Find It-Maybe At A Circus!

Needle In A Haystack

Fred Astaire-1934 (sings/dances):

It's just like looking for a needle in a haystack
Searching for a moonbeam in the blue
Still I've got to find you

It's just like looking for a raindrop in the ocean
Searching for a dewdrop in the dew
Still I've got to find you

I'll roam the town in hope that we'll meet
Look at each face I pass on the street

For sometimes I feel the beat of your feet
But it's just my imagination

Though it's like looking for a needle in a haystack
Still I'll follow everything you do
'Cause I've got to find you

Thank you/turinethefool

DreamerKind said...

It's lovely to hear that someone having a hard time, feels hope from watching WFE, for it is an inspiring film, isn't it?

My daughter and a young friend are watching it right now and I am very eager to hear how it appealed to them. They can be a little cynical for sure.

How are you this evening?


DreamerKind said...

For Freedom & Inspiration:

Sigh No More

Mumford & Sons:

Serve God, love me and mend
This is not the end
Live unbruised, we are friends
And I'm sorry
I'm sorry

Sigh no more, no more
One foot in sea, one on shore
My heart was never pure
You know me
You know me

But man is a giddy thing
Oh man is a giddy thing

Love; it will not betray you
Dismay or enslave you, it will set you free
Be more like the man you were made to be

There is a design, an alignment, a cry
Of my heart to see,
The beauty of love as it was made to be

Thank you/mab24pred

real pr pro said...

DK -- having a good cry right now, thinking about how much my dad would have loved this movie. He passed away April 12 at the age of 84, and was a regular movie goer up to the end. He loved period movies, especially ones set in the 1930s and 1940s since those were his coming of age years. The last movie he saw was The King's Speech, which he loved. I know he would have loved this one as well.

Love Saves!


Ray LaMontagne:

Trouble, trouble, trouble, trouble

Trouble been doggin' my soul since the day I was born

Worry, worry, worry, worry
Worry just will not seem to leave my mind alone

We'll I've been...
saved by a woman
She won't let me go
She won't let me go now

Oh, trouble, trouble, trouble, trouble
Feels like every time I get back on my feet
She come around and knock me down again

Oh, worry, worry, worry, worry
Sometimes I swear it feels like this worry is my only friend

We'll I've been saved...
by a woman
She won't let me go
She won't let me go now

Oh..., Ahhhh....
She good to me now
She gave me love and affection
She good tell me now

She gave me love and affection
I Said I love her
Yes I love her

Aww, sweets, I'm here with you.

Had the very same feeling about my mother, and how she would have loved it, and I seeing it with her.

They are ever with us, in strange and magical ways, through many things, known and unknown, for always.

Okay, I'm pouring some red wine and toasting our darling ones, and the rest of us, too.

Here's to things that last!

They Can't Take That Away From Me

Ella Fitzgerald/Louis Armstrong:

The way you wear your hat
The way you sip your tea
The memory of all that
No, no, they can't take that away from me

The way your smile just beams
The way you sing off key
The way you haunt my dreams
No, no, they can't take that away from me

We may never ever meet again, on the bumpy road to love
Still I'll always, always keep the memory of

The way you hold your knife
The way we danced till three
The way you changed my life

No, no, they can't take that away from me
No, they can't take that away from me

No you can't take that away
You can't take that away from me
No you can't take that away from me

Thank you/Nocaro

DreamerKind said...

Not sure about wearing a hat on Easter but am thinking about doing so. Will get a pic, if I do.

Thank you for enjoying my song selections, and I'll dedicate one to you very soon!

@Roselanders: for your kind remarks about the songs, and sometimes even me-a big Easter Bunny smooch for you!

These Two Hands

Hana Pestle:

I have only this breath
To keep this moment
At the dawn of today

All the mystery left
Is here before me
But can my heart turn away?

I've come too far now...

These four walls could never hold me
And these two hands
Could never hold me back

I'm just before the open door
And I'm so much more
Than these two hands

Now the worlds pass away
And I'm left blindly
From the secrets I keep

I'm no longer afraid
Of what might find me
Or the fields that I reap

I've come too far now...

One breath, one step
Is keeping me here
I've nothing left
And nothing to fear

I've come too far now...

These four walls could never hold me
And these two hands
Could never hold me back

I'm just before the open door
And I'm so much more
Than these two hands

Thank you/hanapestle

In the still of the night
I-I held you, held you tight

I'll Be Seeing You

Michael Buble:

I'll be seeing you
In all the old familiar places
That this heart of mine embraces
All day through

In that small cafe
The park across the way
The children's carousel
The chestnut tree
The wishing well

I'll be seeing you
Through every lovely summer's day
In everything that's light and gay
I'll always think of you that way

I'll find you in the morning sun
And when the night is new
I'll be looking at the moon
But I'll be seeing you

Thank you/wellingtonpub

Rhonda said...

DK- Mae West is cool, she was one sassy lady :)

30 said...

Hi all!

I just did a twitter search too see what people (nonTwilight fans)are sying about Water For Elephats. I held my breath and well take a look if you have a minute.


I could not find ONE bad comment. And MEN, are liking it too. People are just loving it threw and threw.

BIG 30 Smile :)

Rhonda said...

Hi 30- There were a lot of men in the theatre where I saw it yesterday, and they were gushing about how good it was on the way out :)

real pr pro said...

Two of my favorite Mae West quotes:

"It's not the men in my life... it's the life in my men."

"When I'm good I'm very good. But when I'm bad, I'm better."

DreamerKind said...

Hey, You!
I saw mostly older couples and women but the audience was small yesterday.

Seemed like they wanted to clap at the end, but the pause lasted too long, so no one did.

I was too enthralled, still watching the film & credits to think straight or I would have started clapping.

DreamerKind said...

Yes, she was something else, and an idol of mine. Why I like to think that I even look and am built like her! That's a true fantasy...

I Wonder Where My Easy Rider's Gone

Mae West-song/movie (She Done Him Wrong-1933)

Miss Susie Johnson is a crazy as can be
About that easy riding kid they call Jockey Lee
Now, don't you think it's funny, only bets her money
In the race friend Jockey's goin' to be

There was a race down at the track the other day
And Susie got an inside tip right away
She bet a hundred to one that her little Hon
Would bring home all the mon

When she found out Jockey was not there
Miss Susie cried out in despair....

I wonder where my easy rider's gone today
He never told me he was goin' away
If he was here he'd win the race
If not first, he'd get a place
I never saw that Jockey trailing anyone before

I'm losing my money, that's why I am blue
To win a race, Lee knows just what to do
I'd put all my junk in pawn
To bet on any horse that Jockey's on
Oh! I wonder where my easy rider's gone

Oh! I wonder where my easy rider's gone
He went to put my brand new watch in pawn
I see him comin' round that turn
What a trail that man can burn
He's gonna win because my dough is on the nose

Just watch my Jockey's easy rider stance
He'll hit that home stretch, win it by a mile
I want him to win this spree
And keep a-goin' till he comes to me
Oh! I wonder where my easy rider's gone

Thank you/worldwind06

Hi Roseland

So happy to hear that so many people are enjoying WFE, even clapping at the end...it must be really something. I'm counting the days until I can finally experience it myself.

Finally decided to put an avi, may change it later to something else. Just wanted to test it first.

Have a happy Easter everyone.

Connee Boswell & The Ramblers-1935:

I can't give you anything but love, baby
That's the only thing I've plenty of, baby

Dream a while, scheme a while
You're sure to find
Happiness and I guess
All those things you've always pined for

Now, gee I love to see you looking' swell, baby
Diamond bracelets Woolworth doesn't sell, baby

Till that lucky day, you know darn well, baby
I can't give you anything but love

Gee, I love to see you looking' swell, baby.
Look like you just came up out of the wishing well, baby.

Dream awhile, scheme awhile and you're sure happiness and
All those things you been looking' for baby.

Gee, I love to see you looking' swell, baby !!
Diamond rings, bracelets, gold watches 'n' everything, baby.

Until that lucky day, honey, you know good 'n' doggone well, honey,
I can't give you a DADGUM thing but love.

Now, gee I love to see you looking' swell, baby
Diamond bracelets Woolworth doesn't sell, baby

Happy Easter Roseland!

I think the concenus thus far is GO SEE WATER FOR ELEPHANTS, IT IS FABULOUS!!!! I'm thrilled that audiences are applausing at the end.
Sorry I missed you. It seems like forever since we've talked. I see that you saw the movie. What did C. think? Later!
I see I missed you this morning, too. Have a lovely day!

Cate said...

Rose nice subliminal not so subliminal message :) lol

I really can’t think of anything to add to the testaments already provided for WFE without giving anything away. Something endearing maybe? My 86 y/o great aunt apparently spun tales late into the night to my sister and nieces after seeing the movie with them. The text I received:

“She stayed up until 2am telling the girls and me stories from her younger years. I need to write these down. I think we heard things not even mom knows!”

So while the buzz now is about reviews and box office #s, it could very well be the aftermath that makes the most lasting impression on people. That kind of inspiration is priceless.

Congrats and Thanks to everyone involved with WFE!

Happy Easter everyone!


Cate said...

OIC there is some Mumford love going on!



This is an untitled track they recorded with a fuckawesome music blogger about a year ago. (No thunder stealing intended) It isn’t on the album and was apparently only available on UK iTunes (US iTunes Fail), but can be downloaded for FREE on his blog along with a Neil Young cover. Sorry if this was previously posted.

Ok…going from “nothing to add” to two posts is ridiculous! :P

Have a good week all!

Happy Easter Roseland!

Cate: Thanks, for the Mumford link, I loved it :)

Morning everyone,

Gosh I love all your love for WFE, its getting me super excited to see it.

Thanks to DK for posting a Seth Lakeman song. Hes not everyones cup of tea as he's an English folk singer but I love him, he's soooo amazing live and seriously very, very cute ;-)

Anyway, he needs to be seen live really so here he is:


Hope everyone is having a great weekend!!!!

Much love,

Good Morning Beautiful LJ and Roseland...

I went to the movie again yesterday with my husband and best friend, Cindy...My husband was really moved by this film(even though he is a little jealous of my Rob Intoxication..heh)..He just said he was really glad he went to see it..

I am entralled by the previous posts about how the movie is giving people hope and encouragment. I think maybe we ALL needed a film like this AT THIS PARTICULAR TIME. Funny how things work out.

Happy Easter Everybody!

Hi Super & Angelica :)

From Deadline Hollywood (industry blog that focuses on deals and box office

SATURDAY PM, 4TH UPDATE: Studios tell me this Easter Weekend began and ended with rain and storms in 2/3s of the U.S. and the first huge "up" weekend of $125M, which is +34% from last year. Twentieth Century Fox's Rio 3D may be about a bird, but Friday and Saturday numbers showed "it's holding like a rock," a studio exec emailed me. Lionsgate's latest in Tyler Perry's franchise, Madea's Big Happy Family, had the best per screen average of all the top-grossing pictures. This is, after all, Perry's sixth cross-dressing film; still, the last one opened to a $41M weekend and the one before to $30M and this will be even lower by end of day Sunday.
Scoring an "A-" CinemaScore was Fox 2000's Water For Elephants based on Sara Gruen's best-selling book and written by Richard LaGravenese and directed by Francis Lawrence. Clearly, the classy ad campaign was intriguing for adults who don't rush out to see films, and for Robert Pattinson's Twi-hards who do. But this beautifully filmed but searing drama was considered a hard sell. It was also a fine weekend for Universal's holdover Hop from Illumination Entertainment after passing $100M. And Disneynature's African Cats narrated by Samuel Jackson played well for a niche nature movie that truly deserves to be seen. Full analysis coming. Here is the Top 10:

1. Rio 3D (Blue Sky Studio/Fox) Week 2 [3,842 Theaters]
Friday $10.7M, Saturday $9.7M, Easter Weekend $26.5M (-32%), Cume $80.9M

2. Madea's Big Happy Family (Tyler Perry/Lionsgate) NEW [2,288 Theaters]
Friday $10.5M, Saturday $9.2M, Easter Weekend $26M

3. Water For Elephants (Fox 2000/Fox) NEW [2,817 Theaters]
Friday $7M, Saturday $6.8M, Easter Weekend $17.5M

4. Hop (Illumination Entertainment/Universal) Week 4 [3,616 Theaters]
Friday $4.8M, Saturday $4.5M, Easter Weekend $12M, Cume $101M

5. Scream 4 (Miramax/Dimension/Weinstein Co) Week 2 [3,314 Theaters]
Friday $2.7M, Saturday $2.6M, Easter Weekend $7M (-63%), Cume $31M

6. African Cats (Disneynature/Walt Disney Studios) NEW [1,220 Theaters]
Friday $3.3M, Saturday $1.6M, Easter Weekend $6M

7. Soul Surfer (FilmDistrict/Sony) Week 3 [2,240 Theaters]]
Friday $2.3M, Saturday $1.9M, Easter Weekend $5.5M, Cume $28.6M

8. Insidious (FilmDistrict) Week 4 [2,130 Theaters]
Friday $2.1M, Saturday $1.9M, Easter Weekend $5M, Cume $43.8M

9. Hanna (Focus Features) Week 3 [2,383 theaters]
Friday $1.8M, Saturday $2M, Easter Weekend $5M, Cume $31.4M

10. Source Code (Summit) Week 4 [2,363 Theaters]
Friday $1.8M, Saturday $1.9M, Easter Weekend $4.8M, Estimated Cume $44.4M

Hi Pr Pro! I wonder what Fox was projecting for WFE? I heard it over performed but too what degree is my question.

ADD said...

Happy Easter everyone !
I'm glad that WFE is doing very well.

Thanks for the link. I love Mumford & Sons.

real pr pro said...

30 -- Studios tend to shy away from publicly stating expectations for any film. The film is outperforming against the predictions madeb by boxoffice pundits like Box Office Mojo and The Numbers, as well as industry trades. These projections are based on a combination of factors such as the leading actor's ability to open a movie, the genre, other movies opening that weekend, and who the expected audience for the film is. For example, early estimates for WFE were around the $14 million, taking into account the following factors:
- Expected Audience: between fans of the book, Rob's fanbase and Reese's fanbase they expected draw across a broad age range of females; however the conventional wisdom is that the older segment of that audience wouldn't rush out for opening weekend the way that Rob's core fanbase would.
- The lead actors' past box office performance: For this they ignore Twilight and just look at Rob's pull outside of the franchise, so RM's performance tempered expectations. And despite her star powere Reese hasn't carried a hit on her own since Sweet Home Alabama in '02 ($120 million). Walk the Line earned about the same in '05 but she wasn't the main reason for the film's success; likewise with Four Christmases in'08($90 million)where Vince Vaughn helped bring in the crowds. With her most recent film How Do You Know only pulling in $30 million, her impact was questionable. Christophe doesn;t enter into the equation -- he is a prestige factor.

I think the unknowns here were the appeal it seems to have with men and the unexpected "must see" element that they achieved with the marketing campaing, driving the older audience into theaters for opening weekend. And the unsually positive word of mouth is helping as well. The A-CinemaScore says more than some cynical critics's snarky comments in terms of a movie's box office. Seems like people are ready for a beautiful movie with a lovely story and hopeful message --

real pr pro said...

And I'm sure that's more information than you were looking for!

Freddie said...

Good morning everyone. Happy Easter.

The feedback from movie goers on WFE is very heartening. Cate and PR Pro - you both put it perfectly, that the legacy of this movie may be in the way it has touched and inspired people and has helped people connect. Now that's special.

PR Pro - thanks for you special insights.

Have a wonderful day everyone. I hope the Easter Bunny is good to you.

Birdie said...

PR Pro,
Thank for the wealth of information you continue to give us. I really enjoy knowing how this works. I know the critics'reviews can affect careers, but people need to remember to think for themselves. What they value may be totally different than what I value. Some of the things I read were simply ridiculous.
Anyway, thanks again.

30 said...

Pro Pro! Great Info, I appreciate it. :)

real pr pro said...

I'd be intereted in taking a look at ages of the critics who liked the movie versus those who didn't. Sometimes I think that younger critics feel like its beneath them to like stories with happy endings.

Freddie said...

30 - is that you and Sigmund? If so, beautiful picture.

Along with all the other beautiful ladies here in Roseland.

30 said...

Hi Freddie! Yes, that is Sigmund. His tongue was sticking out I had too use it for now. lol

Quick story from last night. I almost had a heart attack here, Sigmund was eating a raw hide bone, well all of a sudden he starts chocking, could NOT fucken breath. Now mind you I was so tired last night, kind of out of it. My daughter was screaming, I was panicking inside. He was like literally, gasping for air. So I grabbed him ran too the kitchen and got a soaked paper towel full of water and poured it down his throat, he ended up gagging and it came up some so I was able too get my hand down his throat and pull the piece that was stuck out. OMG you guys, what a heart attack. So that's what inspired me too use that pic today, my baby boy.

Great new banner Rose! Funny post. Love your not so subtle WFE endorsement!

I've had family for out of town here all weekend. Been fun even if a little chaotic. :)

The women in the family are seeing WFE this afternoon while the men take the kids to see Rio.

Rob vs. talking birds...we women are getting the better deal this time. Ha,ha!

Happy Easter to those who celebrate! Otherwise happy pretty spring Sunday!

Birdie said...

PR Pro,
Very lovely picture by the way. I think most critics do not like a happy ending. Tragedy and darkness seems to always get more credibility, like it is any harder to film... I also think most are not willing to give Rob a break at this point. It is like he must be punished for being successful. I hope he is able to keep it all in perspective and just keep doing quality work, some of them are starting to get it. The fact that some of them panned it and audiences love it, speaks volumes. Someone refresh me, we need critics because???
Scary story! I'm not sure, can you do the Heimlich on a dog?

HAPPY EASTER to all my Roseland buds!

Up In The Stars

Swimming with Dolphins:

Look in these eyes
We know each other like our own skin and bones

We know the scars,
how they got where they are, in places no one else knows.

If you call this love, then show me some feeling
and if it all goes numb, just keep on breathing.

I'll watch you falling from me
When you hit the ground, maybe you'll see
The only way to fall is down

I'll be up in the stars
but I'll be anywhere you are
just say you need me and I'll come down

We'll never know, We'll never ever know if you just let it go

If it comes undone, then tie up your loose ends.
when the colors run, then all of the shapes blend.

Oh, you know there's still a ways to go, so don't start retreating
No, you just gotta take it slow

When you're lost and all out of breath just call and I'll come running baby

I'll watch you falling from me
When you hit the ground maybe you'll see

The only way to fall is down
and I'll be up in the stars
but I'll be anywhere you are

just say you need me and I'll come down
The days go by...

Thank you/dearsomeone4
