  1. It's actually the 15th Anniversary, not 17th...
  2. Nothing Fails at #31??? Ooookay.....
  3. I love the many surprises! Great job Curtains, keep them coming!
  4. Looking forward to joining in the fun tomorrow! Hope I can make some time for it, since I have to work a full day. Thanks for all the hard work, Curtains!
  5. So, there's no need to vote for the unreleased-songs round? I'm kinda glad haha... I was kinda reluctant to vote for songs I rarely listen to to begin with. So, thanks!
  6. Rebel Heart Tour DVD/Blu-ray

    Finally, a HQ video of TAKE A BOW is online! https://vimeo.com/235628458?ref=fb-share&1
  7. I feel so unwilling to do the last round--the unreleased songs. I have always been a firm fan of her released stuff, and even though I have heard most of the unreleased tracks, it's just doesn't feel right to vote on them like the rest.
  8. Rebel Heart Tour DVD/Blu-ray

    Please don't get the DVD if you have a blu-ray player. The SD looks so... you know... not highly defined lol!! The Blu looks really great on the big screen.
  9. How about Queen, Curtains? Ooops, I get it, it was never officially released.
  10. Rebel Heart Tour DVD/Blu-ray

    The Blu-Ray looks and sounds great! TRUE BLUE got me a little misty-eyed... And all those gorgeous close-ups during LA VIE EN ROSE... Madonna is so beautiful! That Moschino dress with all that intricate detail--just WOWOWOW! I am such a happy queen tonight!
  11. Thanks Curtains!
  12. I'll play too! Thanks.
  13. Wasn't there a book deal and an official mini-series planned just before INNOCENCE LOST (or shortly after)? Madonna has always objected to anyone writing a biography/making a movie of her life--she's always said the same thing--they don't know me or haven't even spoken to me, how could they know my life etc etc. It's that control-freak part of her, and quite understandable. I am very surprised, however, at how mad she is about this movie. The script's been out there for a bit now, and she could have easily squashed its existence if she wanted to. I feel she should've just let it be, and not let it faze her. Make LOVED, make it good, and carry on her life like this bio was irrelevant. But that's just my opinion. Mark Zuckerberg had a biography about him, which was also produced by Michael DeLuca. It did not paint him in good light, was wildly inaccurate in many ways, but THE SOCIAL NETWORK did not damage his reputation whatsoever after all was said and done. It's just a movie, and not a definitive ANYTHING about anyone's life. And it's only the early years, so many many MORE movies etc to cover all the many eras to come. While the dialog is chintzy in many places, the screenplay has many gems which truly encapsulate the scrappy spirit of who I feel Madonna was in those early years. Yes, they compacted and condensed, but the screenplay is well-structured and entertaining. It is missing a couple of important things that I feel helped to define Madonna during that era. The art and club scene coming together, New York City culture, SEX, gay men, Martin Burgoyne... perhaps a good director and writer could help flesh these out better. And if I could rewrite it any part of it--any mention of abortion will not be a part of the story. I get it, but that part could be taken out completely. Truth or not, it turns the audience against the character, and she never quite recovers in the screenplay after that. Perhaps this is the real reason why Madonna is so against this movie. I personally did not feel the script made her look that bad, but this revelation sure does. I hope they DO make the movie--it may turn out really bad in the wrong hands but eh, we don't have to see it, and it can disappear within days. Whatever reason the producers may have for making it--it won't matter--Madonna will still stand tall, and she can easily weather this like all the other things she's gone through.
