1 Comments The Fighter With Mark Wahlberg And Christian Bale

Article written by the brilliant Sean Lloyd on the 16 Feb 2011 , in the Books, Movies, CD's & DVD's category

the fighter poster

I absolutely cannot wait to the this movie, The Fighter, starring two of my all time favourite actors, Mark Wahlberg and Christian Bale. From IMDB

“The Fighter, is a drama about boxer “Irish” Micky Ward’s unlikely road to the world light welterweight title. His Rocky-like rise was shepherded by half-brother Dicky, a boxer-turned-trainer who rebounded in life after nearly being KO’d by drugs and crime”

What is amazing is that Christian Bale has once again cut down to virtually nothing, not as extreme as he did in The Machinist, but he’s clearly very skinny in the movie compared to what he usually is. He cut down for The Machinist and then bulked up again for Batman, now he’s skinny again. Mark Wahlberg hasn’t really changed over the years, staying pretty true to a ripped body all the way from his Calvin Klein days, Four Brothers, Shooter and now The Fighter. Having trained some 4 years for the role, Wahlberg is in the shape of his life. As a boxer, he needed all the training he could get, going so far as to install a boxing ring in his house, with some reports saying he spent 4 years training for the role, often waking up at 4:30am for 3 hour training sessions (SOURCE) Check out his boxing ring at home, with a basketball court right next to it (Via Luxist)

The Examiner tells us that Wahlberg spent so much money on preparing for the role, that he was left about $500000 out of pocket by the time filming was finished, from using his budget salary to pay his trainers to teach him to fight (SOURCE). If this is the sort of dedication and passion that Wahlberg put into this film, we are in for an absolute spectacle. Judging by the trailer, and by Wahlbergs past movies, this is going to be one of the finest movies we’ve seen in a long time. I’m sick of movies with hype, I love real movies, made with blood, sweat and tears. If your lead actor is willing to put so much physical energy, and money, into getting a film made, you know there is something different. Mark Wahlberg just approaches acting differently, and I love him for it.

Christian Bale is another insanely talented actor who puts his whole life into his roles, and if you haven’t seen Empire Of The Sun, you need to hire it and see Bale giving the performance of a lifetime, only being 13 years old at the time. He’s followed this role up with performances in American Psycho, The Prestige, Batman Begins, The Dark Knight, The Machinist, Public Enemies and now The Fighter. Known for his method acting, he bulks up and slims down as roles require, often taking things to the extreme, as seen in The Machinist.

He’s cut down considerably for The Fighter, but as you can see, he’s not quite the anorexic size he was in The Machinist.

To do this for a role requires incredible determination, and really sets him apart from other actors. It is this determination that separates the great actors, because they have the drive within them to do whatever a role needs, as opposed to the pretty boy actors who want the easy roles to make money. The actors who just take any roles to make a bit of cash. The popcorn actors.

So we saw the trailer for this the other day at Cavendish and it looks amazing! Mostly because I’m a huge Johnny Depp fan and because Angelina Jolie is not kak looking, let’s be honest.

How is his face when he says ‘Ha ha, it’s the only one I’ve got’ and ‘There are two men trying to break down the door’ ? Awesome stuff. And does anyone have any clue as to when we will see ‘The Rum Diary’ in SA? I have been waiting for that for literally my entire life.

0 Comments You Need To Watch The Cove

Article written by the brilliant Sean Lloyd on the 03 Nov 2010 , in the Books, Movies, CD's & DVD's category

So they were painting the office and I had a few hours to burn, so I sent it to Cavendish in The Bee Gees car and got my haircut, then swung it wide around a corner and burnt into DVD Nouveau, minced my way to the counter and asked if ‘The Cove’ was available. Indeed it was! So I flat footed it home, spun the disc into the DVD player and was absolutely thrilled in the best and worst ways possible. I hate seeing animal cruelty and I love all things relating to the environment. Some people won’t watch these sorts of documentaries because they don’t want to see animals being hurt. And no one does, but if you really care, you need to open your eyes to the world.

I love the world today because we have a monumental amount of information at our fingertips and even when our access to information is hindered, we have people fighting to get the message out. I never want to be out of touch with the world we live in and I never want to miss out on stories because they’re sad. I’ll be honest I was in tears watching The Cove, it is incredibly sad. In the documentary we learn that dolphins suffer incredibly from emotional stress, and that’s why some will die in captivity. They’re used to being free in the vast oceans of the world. In humans, breathing is natural, whereas in dolphins it is a conscious effort. So in extremely stressful instances, they can in effect commit suicide, which is what ‘Flipper’ did in his trainers arms.

It’s a phenomenal story centred largely around Richard O’Barry, who was once a part of the captive dolphin industry, having trained ‘Flipper’. The lengths and risks they went into to get the footage of the dolphin massacre is absolutely phenomenal. They planted cameras at night, used friends in the set building business to disguise cameras as rocks, set camera up in trees disguised as birds nests and risked everything to get the story out. Check out the trailer:

The Cove is about a small cove in Taiji and dolphins are herded in, and dolphin trainers come to select the ones they want for aquariums around the world. The rest are slaughtered in a brutal fashion, with the bay turning blood red from the killings. I’d normally say don’t watch this sort of thing if you’re a little squeamish, but this isn’t some Hollywood money spinner. This is real life and people just like you or me are brutally killing the dolphins. Watch the DVD, donate and support the cause and spread the word.

The Cove is available from all good DVD stores, I got it at DVD Nouveau, Newlands.

Click HERE to buy safely online from

It’s what everyones been talking about, and Herschelle Gibbs was on the radio with Gareth Cliff this morning. To The Point is a story of woman, booze and decadent excess. When you’re in your twenties and at the top of your game with the money rolling in…wouldn’t you do the same as Herschelle? I’m pretty sure you would! About the book:

There’s something about Herschelle Gibbs – a certain quality that has endeared him to cricket fans in South Africa and around the world.

Despite the frustrating on-field inconsistencies of this towering talent, and the messy and very public off-field personal troubles that have tracked him through the years, Gibbs remains one of South African cricket’s best-loved sons.

In his own, very frank, words, Herschelle Gibbs chronicles the ups and downs of his personal and professional life, and describes what it’s been like to be part of the Proteas for the past fourteen years, through the controversies of its various captains, coaches and administrators.

To the Point is of course, a spicy story of excess – women, alcohol, money and plenty of runs – but it also reveals a warm and generous man who wears his heart on his sleeve.

Herschelle chatted to Zoopy TV:

Keith Richards: Cooler than we will ever be.

I was having an AWESOME time reading the Sunday Times yesterday, specifically for the things Michelle McLean can’t live without. Mind boggling.

Anyway the main reason I bought The Sunday Times was because Keith Richards was mentioned, and that reminded me that the greatest autobiography ever is about to be released! Keith Richards has lived a life of excess and because that’s what you’re all here for, I thought it very important to make a mention of this fact. Look, in South Africa we’re always a little behind everyone else and the book will only be released a bit later in South Africa. But never fear Captain Jack! are taking pre-orders, and according to them, Keith Richards autobiography is arriving tomorrow! Click  below to order it safely online on and get it before anyone else!

0 Comments Catch Avatar in 3D At Ster Kinekor If You Missed It

Article written by the brilliant Sean Lloyd on the 23 Aug 2010 , in the Books, Movies, CD's & DVD's category

To fuel James Cameron’s no doubt obsession for high class hookers , cocaine and Hungarian midget slaves to do his pedicures and shave his nuts, Avatar 3D will be shown again in 3D. I know a lot of you missed it because it was fully booked, and then suddenly it was pulled from the screens to make way for some other 3D movie. If you are on tik, or have foetal alcohol syndrome, or have been cryogenically frozen, you may not know what Avatar is about, so here’s a review :

Flippin’ handy to watch that if you have/had any of the above conditions! That video is in HD I believe, so if you have a slow connection or don’t chew Big Red, then F…

Avatar 3D will be released at Ster Kinekor on the 27th of August, I’m just not sure which ones as I don’t think it says on the website. The whole re release is based on the fact that there are 8 minutes of unscene footage (See what I did there? POW! You didn’t expect that so early on a Monday), but the reality is that James Cameron probably needs a new boat or villa, or island, and someone at Ster Kinekor needs a present for their wife/gimp/mistress/Thai lady boy.

So this should pay it off.

2 Comments Let’s Support Our Musicians

Article written by the brilliant Sean Lloyd on the 20 Aug 2010 , in the Books, Movies, CD's & DVD's category

dvd collection

A selection of my fully authentic, fully piad for DVD’s, book and CD’s…Gosh I’m a good boy!

The world today is a weird place, compared to when we were growing up as kids. Back in the day we bought music, saving up for those albums we really wanted. Nirvana’s Nevermind, Lives ‘Throwing Copper’, and hell if you liked to wear pink Tutus as a young boy you probably bought a Spice Girls album. We also paid for news at one point in time, but now we refuse to pay for anything. We read websites for free and as soon as there is any advertising or too much advertising we shout ’sell out’. But everytime we shout sell out, there is someone struggling to make money, working for free or for very little. As soon as a friend buys a CD these days, we simply take it, make a copy and it’s on our iPod and on iTunes.

Look, I like most people have listened to loads of copied music in my time, so I’m no saint (Although I resemble a Greek God and you no doubt want me)

But for some time now I’ve believed that you should treat people the way you’d like to be treated. This doesn’t mean you need to live a dull life and go to church and drink Coke Light and not laugh when a fat person falls down an elevator. I mean I’m the first to laugh when a fat person drops their burger, steps on it and falls on their whale ass. But when it comes to some things, if people have worked hard, then they deserve the recognition for their work.

And paying musicians for their work should be standard. Unfortunately these days, it’s the exception. And I hate it, I really do. People are forever telling me that they have loads of music I need to take from them, but you know, I don’t feel that good about it. And everyone always says ‘Support local’, but how many of those people actually buy the albums?

cd collection

SLXS…supporting…and most importantly, paying for local music

For musicians, many have struggled for years and years to to refine and perfect a sound that the public want to listen to. Ten or more years of hard work, and finally the public deem their music worthy of a listen…and then don’t even pay for it!

KIFF! How would you like it if you ate bread and baked beans for 10 years while you struggle to build your business up? So you build a massive brand, let’s say Virgin. then someone else comes into your office, clones your staff, your ideas, photocopies all your paperwork, and sets up their very own company like yours and people go to the ‘cloned’ business. Wouldn’t you be pissed off?

Wouldn’t it literally make you want to go mad?

This is exactly the same thing as pirating music. And if you want to copy music, then go for it. I just don’t like the way it feels when I listen to copied music. It’s like wearing stolen clothes, or driving a stolen car.

And the point is, music gives my life INCREDIBLE amounts of happiness, and this is all thanks to the talented musicians. Music brings insane amounts of joy to my life…and I think the musicians need to be rewarded for making our lives better. Because they do.

Musicians, when you really look at it, are the glue of society, keeping everything together. Think of a social event where you had fun and where there wasn’t music? When was the last time you got drunk and danced in a club in silence? Can’t think of any?

Exactly. Music is a link in our lives, when removed, will surely break us apart. It’s pretty much a fact that musicians form one of the most important sectors of society. A small sector of society, keeping it all together in these lost and crazy times. When we’re happy we listen to music, when we’re sad we seek solace in music.

We listen to music when we’re drunk, when we’re sober, when we’re at work, when we’re on holiday, when we’re in the car, on a plane,  at the beach, in the bush…it’s just always there, pushing us on, helping us break our limits, forging a path where we can’t see one. Music gets us through the easiest times and the hardest times. And shouldn’t the people who make it be rewarded for that?

Wouldn’t we hate to work for free? Wouldn’t we hate it if we had to take another job, to support our job? This is too often the case with musicians, music needs to be supplemented by another job.

I can’t make decisions for you, but I can offer you some insight. I can’t make you buy music, but I can let you know that if you don’t pay for music…the musicians can’t pay for food.

And to be very honest, a society without music is not a society at all. So let’s pull ourselves together, stop being so greedy, and pay R150 for that album that a musician has struggled and worked to create.

Without music, who are you? What is society?

Think about it…

Well whatever, that’s just my point of view.

0 Comments The Book Of Eli

Article written by the brilliant Sean Lloyd on the , in the Books, Movies, CD's & DVD's category

I went to watch The Book Of Eli with my buddy Mike for a couple of reasons:

Jess didn’t want to go to dinner with me.

Storm didn’t want to go to dinner with me or ‘ever speak to me again’

Katy said she would go to dinner with me only if I promised not to try lunge her in between the mains and desserts. So naturally I had to pull out of that.

Natalie refused to go with me because she said I’d probably excuse myself again and just disappear and blame my undiagnosed ‘memory loss illness thing that has a name and medication and stuff like that that makes it real, it’s really not a fake made up thing to avoid paying bills’

So we went to check it out and I was a bit tired from Assembly on Friday night (Ending at Tiger for some reason — BTW Assembly is mad and apparently for the girls clothing is optional) and during the first bits I did actually fall asleep. It was also one of the few times I haven’t bought popcorn because I wasn’t with a girl and there was no use for my famous ‘popcorn surprise’

So I won’t even try talk about the movie because I don’t get paid to actually do real work like that. I get paid to talk rubbish. Firstly, Denzel is sporting a sick ass pair of shades in the movie and if you want them they are R1800 for the regular ones and around R2700 for the polarized. They’re called Oakley Inmate and they seem a bit illegal because of the amount of chicks you will pull when you’re wearing them. They have ‘home wrecker’ written all over them but seeing as though it is legal to buy them, then I assume that it is legal to sleep with all the women that will be throwing themselves at you.

book of eli denzel washington

What? Albert Einstein once told me over a whisky that you cannot dispute science. And seeing as though God owns science (It’s God’s science), then according to the church you are allowed to take advantage of anyone who lusts after you while you wear these shades. It’s basic science and it’s true and you better listen to me.

So Denzel was wearing Oakley Inmate’s in The Book Of Eli and I tried them on yesterday at V&A and I must say, they are some  of the most comfortable sunglasses around. I find Oakleys plastic sunglasses like the Gascan and Monter Dog EXTREMELY uncomfortable, but the Inmate’s fit securely and the lens wraps around to cover your entire field of vision. I’m impressed with the new range of Oakleys, the metal framed ones. They’re cool and the Inmate’s are my favourite and I’d definitely grab a pair.

And Denzel will literally rip your face off and fry it up with some basil, origanum and RAD, and then eat it. That’s how hard to the core he is. He’s actually like this in real life. He’s like Bear Grylls all pumped up on uppers, downers, laughers and screamers. Coke, E, tik, Vicodyn, Oxycontim, the man packs a goodie bag. He’s holding everything but your main chap.

The other cool thing about the movie is that Mila Kunis (From Forgetting Sarah Marshall) is EXTREMELY sexy in the movie! Cute even. Somewhat vulnerable at times, you just want to take care of her! They way she depends of Denzel for safety is cute. Walking beside him on her skinny jeans. Looking all roughed up because the world is over, but still keeping it sexy. For some reason this reminds me of this thing I have for really unstable women, you know when you think you can fix them? You just want to take care of them and fix their cocaine problem, and their mental instabilities and all that. And then one day you wake up and they’re standing over you with a knife, and you’re like “WTF?” and then they just walk out the room and pretend nothing ever happened and they never mention it again and you’re too scared to speak about it and you think they are going to kill you one day and you get a restraining order against them and you take police escorts home and you always surround yourself by people and never walk alone and never arrive home alone…? Oh does no one else know this feeling. Woopsie daisies, it must just be me then!

book of eli

So sexy…well enough about me let’s talk about Mila (Canned laughter, readers vomiting at the thought of me. One readers grabs her keyboard cable and tries to end the pain of reading this right away. Another grabs crack pipe and repeatedly stabs self)

mila kunis

Basically my current girlfriend, she totally wants me and you can see by the way she was making love to the camera when I took this photo.

When I looked at her I honestly would have done anything at that moment in the movie to hook up with her.

Is this what love feels like?

And don’t tell me I’m confusing lust with love. I’ll tell you a story, kid! I’ll tell you what love is!

You wanna know what love is? Oh I’ll tell you, I’ll bring it!

I gotta take a little time
A little time to think things over
I better read between the lines
In case I need it when I’m older
Aaaah woah-ah-aah

Now this mountain I must climb
Feels like a world upon my shoulders
And through the clouds I see love shine
It keeps me warm as life grows colder

In my life there’s been heartache and pain
I don’t know if I can face it again
Can’t stop now, I’ve traveled so far
To change this lonely life

I wanna know what love is
I want you to show me
I wanna feel what love is
I know you can show me
Aaaah woah-oh-ooh

I’m gonna take a little time
A little time to look around me, oooh ooh-ooh ooh-ooh oooh
I’ve got nowhere left to hide
It looks like love has finally found me

In my life there’s been heartache and pain
I don’t know if I can face it again
I can’t stop now, I’ve traveled so far
To change this lonely life

I wanna know what love is
I want you to show me
I wanna feel what love is
I know you can show me
I wanna know what love is
I want you to show me
And I wanna feel, I want to feel what love is
And I know, I know you can show me

Let’s talk about love
(I wanna know what love is) the love that you feel inside
(I want you to show me) I’m feeling so much love
(I wanna feel what love is) no, you just cannot hide
(I know you can show me) yeah, woah-oh-ooh
I wanna know what love is, let’s talk about love
(I want you to show me) I wanna feel it too
(I wanna feel what love is) I wanna feel it too
And I know, and I know, I know you can show me
Show me what is real, woah (woah), yeah I know
(I wanna know what love is) hey I wanna know what love
(I want you to show me), I wanna know, I wanna know, want know
(I wanna feel what love is), hey I wanna feel, love
I know you can show me, yeah

Exactly, now sit down! Oh and go watch the movie, it’s really great, I enjoyed it which is a nice change from the rubbish I have watched lately like that one with the horse face chick from ‘I Wouldn’t Have Sex With You In Any City’ and Hugh Grant.
