Subject:LIJ INTERVIEW IN EMPIRE
Time:10:53 am
Current Mood:boredbored
Just popping in from work to let everyone know that the September issue of Empire has quite a long interview with Elijah. Its out in the UK now - not sure about the US. The interview took place on the set of EII and is mainly discussing GS Hooligans. I don't have it with me right now but there aren't really any new revelations - although it does mention a provisional title for Lij's record lable when he gets it going - something like 'Its not you, its me' - though I might have that totally wrong!! Elijah also says that he knows he will never be a megastar like Cruise or Pitt (and a couple of other were mentioned) but he wouldn't want that and is very comfortable with where he is. *Bless* There are 2 pics with the article - one is from a fight scene in Hooligans which was also in the Total Film mag - and the other is quite a big posed pic which I'm sure has been around for years.

ETA: Forgot to mention the down side. The person who conducted the interview also wrote a small review of GSH in the mag and was not very complimentary, especially to Elijah. Only gave it two stars out of five. Still, what does he know? Swine

It is hard to get the size right, isn't it? I gave up with Photobucket after several attempts because they would automatically shrink down the pics until they were unreadable. The LiveJournal picture gallery, which I had never tried before, worked really well.

I can get Empire in a bookstore near me here in LA, but they never put them on the shelves until THE MONTH that's on the cover. So for example, if it's a September issue, I'll have to wait until September 1, or whenever the stocker person decides to put it out, before I'll see it. Oh well, that's only a month away now. I'll be looking for the Total Film mag next week on the shelves!

Thank you for the heads up!

*sigh* I will never understand this. I will never understand why more people don't appreciate his talent. I've seen much worse acting from the Tom Cruise and Brad Pitts of the world.

I can't write anything else, I don't know how to put it into words. *sigh again*

Yay! Thanks for the heads up (is that the right expression???). I buy the UK edition of Empire in a nearbye shop, but have to be in time because they only have a limited amount of issues out every month: I'll take extra care to be in time!

Thanks for this - another friend said there was an interview with Elijah in September's Empire mag but it's good to know that it's quite a lengthy one and well worth getting. I already had the Total Film one from last month so wasn't sure whether to get Empire as well... though as it's Lij I probably would anyway! Just can't resist the little darling! *bless* indeed...

Kindling has said she will scan it - so you might get a chance to read it before you decide if you want to buy. I forgot about the bad review - have just edited my post :(

I have just added a quote from Salogel who went to see "Hooligans" last night and loved it, "bad review" or not.

I think thats probably why we love him - because he's always himself and doesn't intend to change :)

A friend went to see "Hooligans" last night and this is what she had to say -

*I'm not going to give anything away... except I absolutely loved it, and the reports of Elijah's acting not being up to scratch are complete bollocks!

Everything about the movie was spot on, all the actors fitted their characters perfectly! I loved the way the fight scenes were filmed, and I loved the music that was used throughout the entire movie.

It is violent, incredibly violent, and absolutely littered with swear words... and that's how it should be.

The story was good, and it gives you a real in depth feel into the world of these football 'firms'.*

So if this is the reason for her comments about Elijah's acting, the poor review in Empire, she obviously doesn't agree with it! I'm still looking forward very much to seeing it...

Thanks for posting this. From the couple of trailers I've seen it looks great and I'm sure I've read far more positive reviews than negative. I believe the new UK release date is Sept 9th - I'm really looking forward to it :)

Thought you'd like to read this from a real fan who appreciates Lij and could see his performance with "true" vision! lol

I still think it's going to be a great movie for Lij, the chance to be seen doing something completely different.

That critic obviously still has difficulty in visualising Lij as anything other than Frodo which is what Lij fears and why he's doing all this different kind of stuff.

Elijah also says that he knows he will never be a megastar like Cruise or Pitt (and a couple of other were mentioned) but he wouldn't want that and is very comfortable with where he is.

I'm so glad he's happy to be where, and who, he is. But I will never understand WHY he "can't" be a megastar like Pitt or Cruise. He brings so much more to any movie he's in than those two could ever muster between them. Oh well. I guess I wouldn't really want him to be a megastar like the other two, because look at the movies they're in; blockbusters. Name the last blockbuster, mass-market movie you saw that made you want to talk for hours about it to anyone who'd listen! Ummm, leaving out the LOTR films of course! ;-)

I'm glad he doesn't want to be a megastar too but I do agree with you - there's absolutely no reason why he shouldn't be. He's a brilliant actor who is overlooked far too often. Well, yes, I guess you could call LOTR a blockbuster;) But I really don't think you can lump it in with any other genre - it just stands alone in its brilliance:)
