Sorry Redleg havent heard of the movie Black Swan and I go to plenty of Flicks at the Cameo Belgrave, Top 4 Actresses on the planet. Seriously?

Judie Dench  Angelina JolieCharlize TheronJulia RobertsCameron Diaz Dakota Fanning, Helen Mirren, Daryl Hannah, Jamie Lee Curtis

is she better than any of these?? I would sincerely doubt it !

 

I presume you mean her acting talent? Well she is certainly not better than Judy Dench, Helen Mirren and probably Julia Roberts, but Daryl Hannah, seriously?

She has won an Oscar for best actress and is a top box office draw. Is Daryl Hannah still playing mermaids?

To those poo pooing this because you haven't heard of her do not discount the "free" publicity things like this generate. She is A-list in  Hollywood and this has gained a lot of media attention and gives the brand a small bump.

All the online media outlets had our jumper front and centre for a few minutes in the 24 hour media cycle and I'm sure all the papers will have our jumpers front and centre (well maybe on the back page) tomorrow. This seemed to fall in our lap and I'm always jealous seeing other teams with celebs sporting their jumpers.

Most definitely not going to win us a premierships, bring in memberships or make us money but it's better than being totally irrelevant and it's nice to see positive stories particularly after our bystander status during the draft.

Often it seems they get a photo op with a celeb in a jumper then off they go (the celeb)...

At least she seemed to be involved a bit more than that, hanging around having chat with the coach and others.

Would imagine iSelect would be very happy, Zurich not so much , although there may have been other factors.

Welcome to a winning team Demons supporters.  Soak it in and I hope the club milks it for everything it is worth as these sort of things are what will help keep us finacial against the mega clubs (until we can become one).

I won't be anything like satisfied until we have won that ever elusive flag, but I think we need  all need to get use to being one of the good teams again.

It seems this fell in our laps and she just rocked up with friends. Kudos again to whoever was able to iron on the Portman onto the Daisy guernsey in record time for the photo op. Seems like Pert got on the scene very quickly to throw down the welcome mat.

Not in your video library, BBO?

Shocked.

Well Steve, I suppose the most tactful way to put this, is to say that my video library is non mainstream.

Her loss Ernie. However, having now had a perv, I'd happily present her with a gold award.

She was awsome in The Professional, though I must admit that it was that movie which solidified my man-crush on Jean Reno. 

Great film  "The Professional",  loved it...  and agreed Jean Reno. I love his acting style.

Daryl Hannah was a STANDOUT in Ridley Scott's "Blade Runner" playing a Renegade Replicant that the Tyrell Corp allowed to get with advanced programming... Out of hand. A bit like Demonland on occasions!

Apocolyptic and moving, She was outstanding!! 

Sorry, Natalie WHO??

Haha. Cameron Diaz? Seriously? It's not 2002, Picket. Not sure about Hannah or Lee Curtis on that list either. 

Portman's film Annihilation this year could have been one of the best films made this century if the studio hadn't [censored] around with it. Check it out on Netflix, but it looks like you'd prefer The Children Act, given the actresses you've mentioned. That's also on right now. You'll be able to get it at Cameo.

You're a strange fellow at times, HH. FWIW, Portman does a lot of incredible community work.

Not to turn this thread into a film critique thread. But that movie just did not know what it wanted to be.

On another note, great PR for the Dees today. The Star Wars stuff was fun, but they shouldn't push it any more, just enjoy the free marketing they got today. Don't look desperate.

She's about a 6 or 7 at best.

When I trained there were rows of these desperate ,lonely, young  women watching me move across the turf like a Lion.

I felt like a piece if meat, only there for their visual stimulation.As if my brain and my thoughts were secondary to my physique.

Most of those young girls only wanted to know me for one thing.None of them took any interest in my intellect or my worldly ideas.

Sadly ,those days are gone.

    LANDSLIDE by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons enjoyed the better of their first half against Port Melbourne on Saturday but fell away badly after half time to lose by 43 points. The Borough enjoyed the early break with the game’s opening two goals but the Demons took control to go out to an 8 point lead at quarter time, an advantage that it held for most of the second term until a late goal to the visitors clawed the lead back to a point.  The Casey ruck of Braydon Preuss and Liam Wale-Buxton were on top for most

    SHOULD HAVE ... COULD HAVE by George on the Outer

    West Coast finally put the nail in the Demons 2019 season coffin with a 16 point win, but it was a game that Melbourne should have, could have, but didn’t win. Once again woeful, truly woeful work in the forward line, both kicking for goal and the lazy, cheap efforts of some let the side down. A solitary goal in the final quarter and only 9 goals from 24+ scoring opportunities was the costly difference in the game. The selectors, once again, made a critical error in not selecting

    SCREAM by Whispering Jack

    The Norwegian Expressionist artist Edvard Munch painted a number of versions of his famous work “Scream” and, every time my mind goes back to last year’s Preliminary Final at Optus Stadium between Melbourne and the West Coast Eagles, each and every one of them reverberates through my mind as if my head is being pummeled by a sledgehammer.  When I think of that half time scoreboard from that match showing West Coast at 10.9.69 to Melbourne 0.6.6, I feel like the man standing by the railing,

    NOT GAWN IN 60 SECONDS by George on the Outer

    You might recall a regular segment that once featured on the MFC website entitled, “Gawn in 60 Seconds”, in which Maxy would ask the hard questions of his teammates. However, there was no harder question asked than the one asked collectively of the whole team in the last 60 seconds of Saturday’s game against the Gold Coast Suns.  It was either follow me and my example or the Demons’ season, already hanging flimsily by huuua thread, would be truly “Gorn”.  It was at that stage when thos

    BOILOVER by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons caused the boilover of the season to date when they took on and beat the undefeated ladder leaders Essendon VFL by 41 points at Windy Hill.  The stunning result which was achieved with a season low of eight AFL-listed players, will surely kickstart the Demons’ ailing season after they lost their last two matches as a result of some poor third quarter fade outs against quality opposition. Casey got off to a great start with a mid-air soccer volley goal from Jimmy Munro

    LITTLE RAY OF SUNSHINE by Whispering Jack

    There would be very few among us who would have thought realistically at the start of the season that by the time Melbourne’s Round 8 trip to the Gold Coast came around, the visitors would not only be languishing in 16th place on the ladder, but also be sitting a game behind their hosts. In fact, had the Suns managed to goal late in their opening game against the Saints which they lost by a mere point, the gap between the two sides would have been even wider. Such has been the humiliation o

    UNDERDOGS by KC from Casey

    Thanks to the large injury list at Melbourne, the Casey Demons went into their fifth round clash with Footscray VFL as the underdogs and despite a courageous showing up to half time after conceding the game’s first four goals, their third quarter fade out saw them fall short against quality opposition for the second time in a week. Casey went into the game with only 9 AFL listers after Declan Keilty was called up to make his debut when Tim Smith was forced to pull out of the Melbourne team

    IN THE PINK by George on The Outer

    A five point victory against the eternal nemesis in Hawthorn, didn’t put the Demons back in the black for the 2019 season ... but rather, it added a touch of pink to their fortunes, now showing some sign of life after an underwhelming start to the year. And pink was the most appropriate colour for the side and the supporters, given this game was the annual “Pink Ladies” match.  And none more so than this proud Demon fan who turned up to add his support to the cause and his team at the same

    EASIER SAID THAN DONE by The Oracle

    There is no way of getting around the fact that Melbourne is the disappointment team of the AFL competition and, because it came into the season as a big top four fancy and now sits stone motherless last with a 1-5 win-loss record, it is fast becoming a laughing stock.  The only way in which the Demons can restore any sense of pride, let alone its rapidly diminishing hopes of making the finals is for it to overcome Hawthorn on Saturday in the replay of last year’s preliminary final.

    POINT CRASH by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons went down by the narrowest of margins to a strong Richmond VFL combination in the Round 4 game at Casey Fields on Saturday after a rushed behind  to the Tigers in the game’s dying moments broke the deadlock. In a low scoring game, Casey took the early ascendency after conceding the first goal and held their lead for most of the first half going into the sheds at the main break with an 8 point lead. The Demons were led in defence by key position players, Oscar McDonald

    THE LAST POST by George on the Outer

    The Last Post sounded out in memory of the fallen around a packed MCG at the Anzac Eve match against Richmond. The silence of the crowd assembled was in tribute to those who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country. But the Last Post was also an appropriate symbol of the finals aspirations now gone for the Melbourne Football club, after a mere six rounds of the 2019 Season.   How far has this team fallen!  From a Preliminary final contestant barely six months ago, to cellar dwelle

    THE BRIGHT SIDE by Whispering Jack

    I don’t often agree with Dermott Brereton but he came close to the mark last week when he labelled Melbourne a “team of downhill skiers” that works much harder offensively than it does defensively.  And he was looking at the bright side of the team’s game plan. That proposition has been clear since before the season started. It was obvious from the first JLT game against Richmond when the team leaked multiple goals in a short space of time as players gave metres away to opposition forwards.
