I am a Mel Gibson fan

user
  I've been a fan of Mel Gibson longer than I care to remember and was   saddened by his dalliance and love child with a Russian woman who had had a child earlier with former Bond, Timothy Dalton.  Had Mel gone off his head? Mel, the action star, the practical joker on the sets, who had a large brood from his happy marriage to the same woman - his childhood sweetheart- for decades. A rarity in Hollywood, OK, make that showbiz.   I'm sorry Mel knocked up the wo...

Whatever Happened To Ryan Gosling?

user
I've never seen The Notebook.  I know.  That's bad right?  An alleged film connoisseur who writes a blog about films and never has seen The Notebook.  But I must admit, I've seen just about every other Ryan Gosling film made.
