Hello to all you lovely RayVers!

This is my first post, but Iíve had a ball over the last few days reading the boards and in some cases literally laughing out loud at some of the posts.  I think my husbandís getting a bit worried about me! 

Actually, my hubby is responsible for my Ray-velation in the first place.  About a year ago, Hubby, being a fan of Nazi Zombie flicks, got a copy of Outpost and I, not being quite so invested in such movies and having patiently endured some truly terrible ones in the past, kind of ignored it for the first half hour....  Then I started to notice the tall, nice-looking actor who was playing D.C.  Strangely, he seemed to get better-looking the longer I watched (funny, never been much of a fan of stubble and menís knitwear up until then)... 

Bravely overcoming my extreme disappointment that his character got killed off by the N Zís, some days later I tuned into Dexter Season 7, Ep 1. ďOoh, look!Ē I said to myself.  ďItís that bloke from Outpost....(cut to the end of episode 9, weeks later)...and heís been killed off.  AGAIN!Ē   :(     

Since then, Iíve been madly grabbing copies of almost everything Rayís been in and am delighted to see some of the time he DOES survive at the end of the movie.  Oh, and Hubbyís thoroughly sick of me talking about Frank Castle hanging upside down from the chandelier spraying bullets from his twin MP5ís. 

Anyhoo, enough from me.  Just glad to be here. :)

Thanks to everyone for the welcomes!  :D

Hmm, if I am the only Australian on the site, then I guess it falls to me to award Ray two thumbs up :evander: :evander: for his Aussie accent in The Other Guys  :D

Hi, sparkle!   :wave:  Good to meet you.

Yep, have seen all of Rome.  Foxtel (cable TV in OZ) started screening it in the last 12 months (gee, we're not behind the rest of the world, or anything :(), and actually had a Rome marathon over the last month, on Friday and Saturday nights.  So basically, the home phone was unplugged, the mobile turned off and nothing short of a house fire was going to dislodge me from the couch on those nights.  And yes, I have a MAJOR crush on Titus Pullo.  Luckily, my hubby's got a bit of a man crush on the character as well, cos I now own the DVDs.

I haven't read Divergent.  Is his character going to be really horrible, do you think, or bad but likeable like Isaak Sirko?

Looking forward to Thor. We usually get big movie releases out here the same time as in the US, so hopefully we won't be waiting too long. Bet nobody screens Jayne Mansfields Car, though.  I also noticed Firefly's trousers, though I did not get to view them via the magic of Imax.  I think I've got a bit of a thing for him, too. Is that a bit wrong?

When I started looking for Ray references on the net, one of the first things I found was your fan art.  I think they're brilliant  :)  (Just call me mushy, too!)

Would love to hit the chat room, but yes, the time difference may prove a problem. 

I think it's great that this forum provides an outlet for Ray-related gushing  :)

Getting dark, here.  Hmm, might just be time before dinner to sneak in an episode of Rome  ;)

Cheers.

Welcome to the laughing academy, Catelyn. I show up for chats occasionally, when the ladies here organise them. (Tis always the ladies. The few chaps here organise naff all, as blokey sorts are wont to do.) We've occasionally even talked about Ray!

So that was a passable accent? I'd wondered!  :D

I saw it. Interesting concept that appeared to have suffered all the way from writing to editing. Some characters were incredibly understated (Robert Duvall, who stole every scene he was in, oddly enough) and others leant too heavily towards the melodramatic (Billy Bob Thornton as one of three brothers all wanting dad Duvall's approval). One character who really shone was dropped altogether in the anti-climactic finale, as if the editor forgot her. Ray got starkers though so you ladies should be chuffed anyway.  ;D

It was...not so good.  Billy Bob Thorton doesn't interest me in any way so that part wasn't surprising.  But I was surprised that, as a director, he managed to make almost everybody else look as interesting as wilted lettuce.  TigerFlwr warned us about that.

Two exceptions were; Frances Connor (Mr. Selfridge), who did a hilarious scene, enthusiastically reciting naked poetry in her delightful English accent (she's an Aussie but did a great American accent in Mr. Selfridge) and Robert Duvall.  I don't know why you were surprised that Robert Duvall stole every scene, Titus.  Robert Duvall is one of our most beloved and highly esteemed character actors. We have two or three great actors over here, too, you know, though I'll admit the UK has more of 'em.

On the bright side, Ray isn't even one degree of separation from Kevin Bacon anymore!  Well, that's something, isn't it?
