Cosmopolis on another top 10 list and Robert Pattinson's Eric Packer appears in mashup video for 2012 films

Cosmopolis on another top 10 list and Robert Pattinson's Eric Packer appears in mashup video for 2012 films

Cosmopolis made the cut on Canada's Top 10 list of 2012 films! The Playlist provided a list of the country's best films, decided by "a panel of industry types all cast their votes for Canada's Top Ten", listed alphabetically:
Cosmopolis, David Cronenberg (Entertainment One Films)
The End of Time, Peter Mettler (Mongrel Media, National Film Board)
Goon, Michael Dowse (Alliance Films)
Laurence Anyways, Xavier Dolan (Alliance Films)
Midnight's Children, Deepa Mehta (Mongrel Media)
My Awkward Sexual Adventure, Sean Garrity (Phase 4 Films)
Rebelle, Kim Nguyen (Mongrel Media)
Still, Michael McGowan (Mongrel Media)
Stories We Tell, Sarah Polley (Mongrel Media, NFB)
The World Before Her, Nisha Pahuja 
The film has gotten noticed in other industry circles, such as Cahiers Du Cinema and Sight & Sound. The recognition is pretty awesome for Rob since he IS Cosmopolis, through and through. TIFF_Net announced the titles on twitter and also featured a great write-up about the film HERE. With the DVD/Blu-ray out in several countries and its release in the US on Jan. 1st, there have been a few reviews popping up. Men continue to recognize Rob's magnetic turn and marvel over his terrific performance. Makes you want to pull the "proud mama Steph" face.

To top off the Cosmopolis love day, Rob was featured in this 2012 movie mashup video for Cosmopolis! He pops up at :36 and has one of the best lines from the film laced over.

Ladies ladies once again my compliments on the banner!!!!!! Rob looks distinguished, mature and so SEXY in that grey Berlin suit. And thank you for making December rob as SO fun-- I am excited every day to see what's in store on the blog.. Thank you!!

I still MARVEL at his performance in cosmopolis-- and feel so proud mama Nansofbrixton every time and way it gets recognized!!! This is a defining moment in rob's career!!

Gozde said...

I remember a time a few weeks ago in class I was talking about how there have been actors in big hollywood franchises that r so well known for the characters they play and yet want to move on in order to avoid being typecasted. I mentioned rob of course on how brilliant of an actor he is and how hard he has worked to move on to better things as an actor and grow. I mentioned cosmopolis of course and how fantastic he was in it and I might have recoomended my peers to hopefully watch it one day if not then my teacher to see what I'm talking about. I felt very proud of myself for spreading the word about rob and cosmopolis since not too many people outside of the rob community know its existence but I think I'm sort of helping it. And I'm prob the only one in my class aware of this world in the world of robsessed

Gozde said...

This is the tip of the iceberg for our wonderful, talented Rob -- he has come into his own as Robert Pattinson and his talent is being recognized as true and remarkable -- 2013 will give him the canvas on which to showcase his as yet not fully appreciated grasp of acting and displaying to the world what we, his most ardent fans, have long recognized since he first mesmerized us on the silver screen in his incredible, unmatchable performance as Edward -- and the best is yet to come!

Gozde said...

Congratulations to everyone who worked on the film. Saw it at last. And its great. And Rob and other actors play so well.
I love the funny comments the admin girls make here. 'proud mama steph face'-LOL

Gozde said...

Happy that a lot of cinema connoisseur have Cosmopolis in their list as the best movie of the year.It's unbearable to think what could have happen if Mr.C didn't asked Rob for Cosmopolis.Forever grateful to Mr.C for recognizing natural talent.And directors barely scratch the surface of Rob's acting talent I can only imagine the future will bring.Sky's the limit Rob!

Gozde said...

Well, I had an extra tipple tonight, so feels celebratory...lol Screenings in January at Tiff may be too late for Rob to attend but sure he'd like the description of "hippest cast..." ;-)

Gozde said...

Love this post and more good raves about Rob and Cosmopolis. Thanks for the video, too..
.."He pops up at :36"...pops up??.. Really Tink??..lol

Gozde said...

How can we run Rob the the oscars. So much PR for that race and no PR for rob. We want Rob to nominated for the golden globe and the academy awards. Start a camaign.

Gozde said...

Well i saw cosmopolis, unlike D2 which i'm yet to see,all because, of so much different things now anyway rob and his movie, i saw it three times,but roger ebert did not like it, and i as a verity critic who i always ask his opinion and he said rob was ok, just okay but he hated the movie,and my heart sunk, because he think rob is a great future actor, so you see we all have different opinions,i was really hoping for rob getting a nod for the awards, i still find OTR is a runchy movie, sorry ladies but i do like some of the hopefuls, next comments i say which ones!

Gozde said...

Morning ladies! I'm loving all the kudos Cosmopolis is getting! The amount of admiration from men for this film on Twitter too is very encouraging as Rob slowly fills up his male fanbase. For a small indie film it is getting the applause it deserves and when you think the whole film is carried by Rob it brings a huge grin to my face! He IS Eric Packer and the transformation from his usual charming, affable self to an arrogant, self-confidant billionaire is astounding. Even the timbre of his voice changes. The mark of a true natural in front of the camera and predicts a huge future for Rob.
I can only wait in shivery anticipation for the release of The Rover as he blows us and everyone else away.


Vampire teen heart-throb who?

Gozde said...

I think Rob would be greatly embarrassed at a campaign for him to be nominated for a GG or an Oscar. He has said himself that he is only at the very start of his career and has yet to really prove himself.

Give him time.....he will get one soon enough.

Gozde said...

i can totally understand you and i like how supportive of Rob you are) but i agree with Kazrob...it`s just the beginning and he`s got lots of great roles that will help him to become even more skillful and experienced, that will help him to show once again how talented he is and how different he can be and that will help him to work with some really great, creative and also talented people....and then....one day....all the greatest things will happen ....sigh

Gozde said...

i`m really really happy. Rob`s performance in Cosmopolis was truly brilliant and mind-blowing. and i know that with every movie he will only get better and better)


love the mash-up vid)

Gozde said...

With every positive and words of praise and recognition of Mr. Pattinson and Cosmopolis.., it make me very happy and proud. Keep doing it Robert. We here knew it all along. Two thumbs up to words of Tink.

Gozde said...

Oscar-that's to ask too much too soon

Gozde said...

'an extra tipple' ...lol...I would pay good money to hear your comments if you 'over tippled' ... Seasons greetings AP..

Gozde said...

I knew you would catch that one. Those subtle innuendos, dont you just love them!

Gozde said...

Morning! I am just going to bed but the thought counts...? lol

Gozde said...

Would love at least a nomination for Paul Giamatti for best supporting actor. He can take one for Team Cosmopolis :-)

Gozde said...

Good for you! You should feel proud!

Gozde said...

Good morning! I've noticed men catching on to Rob's brilliance too!! It's about time. Of course, at the risk of being sexist, they often are a little slow and need us ladies to help them out. ;)

Gozde said...

Yes major kudos to Mr. C!! He opened the door for Rob to get this respect.

Gozde said...

With the directors and films he has lined up, I think it's only going to get better!!

Gozde said...

I agree but wow - as much as I adore this man now, it's crazy to think of "better," you know? But it will be awesome to see him evolve as an actor while also getting more of the recognition he deserves!

Gozde said...

Rob is just excellent in Cosmopolis. I enjoy his every move, look, his interesting face... He really is Eric with his arrogance, genius, lust, greed and his vulnerability. I'm so proud of Rob. I can't wait for his next movies.

Gozde said...

Ha!! Definately Eric packer is a popper upper

Gozde said...

I think the mash up is very well done... But can you believe the amount of explosions and effects in general there are in movies today?

Gozde said...

Amen Kaz :)
I think with Rob, there's always gonna be something for us to look forward to isn't there?
Bring it on Rob...we are ready! ;D

Gozde said...

LMAO

Gozde said...

Lucky canada. Cosmopolis willa be shown again at 'tiff lightbox' because it made top ten

Gozde said...

If I was rich I'd get on a plane and here I'd go! i'd give anything to see it on big screen..wonder if Rob will be there for that?

Gozde said...

Same here! Rob´s performance in Cosmopolis surpassed my already high expectations. And I think there is more sleeping potential in him waiting to come out to play ;) Not very long now until he will be on the Rover set :) Excited!!!!

Gozde said...

;-)

Gozde said...

Very well put: "Sky is the limit, Rob!"

Gozde said...

...'' his incredible, unmatchable performance as Edward''...wasn't it though, and I think it'll always be my favorite.

Gozde said...

Yea that'd be great b/c they'd play a little snippet during the awards and that'd be the advertisement it never got and help the sales of DVD's, too.

Gozde said...

Yeah!!! I'm just an hour and a bit down the road...

Gozde said...

Nice that Rob got a supportive fan like you..In my opinion at this point of his career,Oscar is too soon and with the way the more mainstream awards are being conducted that will make Rob uncomfortable.The nominees are basically selling themselves(in a very innocent way)which should not be the case.Their performance should be the basis if they win not on how personable the winner is or how powerful/rich the people behind them.For me if Rob wins now in small award giving bodies like Sundance,Genie or other indie related,it will mean more to Rob.There at least he knows winner doesn't have to kiss someone else's arse but deserves it cause it solely base/judge by excellent acting.I got the feeling Rob is a Cannes film guy.Though I think Rob wouldn't say no to Oscar in future.Sorry but that's just what I think and could be totally wrong :)

Gozde said...

:)

Gozde said...

I'm giddy whence cause got another chance to watch it again this January though felt a little guilty cause I read a lot of ladies didn't get a chance to see it in cinema and here we are after multiple viewing having a chance again to view the masterpiece!!

Gozde said...

More than ready;-)

Gozde said...

It will be shown at tifflightbox on january 11th and 12th. Canadian girls enjoy it

Gozde said...

That's great!!! Enjoy Canadians.

Gozde said...

All this talk about Cosmopolis is great. Reminds me that my yoga teacher is still holding onto my Cosmopolis even though he said he finished it and absolutely loved it. He really loved the language.

Gozde said...

Its evening now and just got in from work and finished dinner. Now for some Rob time!
Yes, men can be rather slow to catch on but at least when they do catch up they state their case honestly...and they seem to all be loving Rob in Cosmopolis! It always makes me smile that they all sound so surprised. Little do they realise that there lies a true actor underneath his pretty face..lol

Gozde said...

Is the mash up just Canandian films? I didn't know any of them. But still the important thing is Cosmopolis and Rob are getting critical attention!

Gozde said...

Oh, I´m happy for you, don´t feel guilty though - it doesn´t help anyone :) It really makes a difference to see it on the big screen as it is the case with many movies. But I think with Cosmopolis it is even more special because the space of the limo and the muffled sound of the traffic around lets it appear so extramundane (sp?) and even more so with the surrounding sound system in the cinema. Can you see where I am coming from?

Gozde said...

You're coming from horror and despair. LOL
Sorry, I just love to cite the dialogues of Cosmopolis and catch myself reacting spontaneously. It really is like a kind of poetry.

Gozde said...

It's too soon, they don't give him enough credit yet. But I like the idea that, from all the young stars who were at Cannes, he was the only one who carried the whole movie on his shoulders and his movie got the highest rating from the Cannes' critics.
Btw, I like calling the one I reply to by her nickname but in your case I wouldn't know how to begin LOL

Gozde said...

That´s right. The cork. This is was finally matters.
;-)

Gozde said...

And Rob would be in it!!

Gozde said...

I didn't see it to the end but I recognized Bella's red eye, so no Canadian movies only.

Gozde said...

I'm not a twiiterer (or how is it called?) but I follow a tweet thread and it's always so amusing to read tweets where the men are praising his acting in Cosmo, often talking in group about him without any irony, but with a lot of surprise. Oh yes, sirs, we know this!! :)

Gozde said...

That's exactly what I was thinking. And maybe Rob would get to introduce the footage..

Gozde said...

Ditto!!!!!! ;)

Gozde said...

so true. and I am so happy and proud to read all these amazing reviews.

Gozde said...

I think that The Rover director will be amazing to Rob too. Like DC he will pull the best from him. I am sure.

Gozde said...

Now that sounds really interesting... what do they say for example. I'm really interested in this because I always wonder how Rob is perceived by men. I know my hubby leaves nothing good to him, shows me he just cannot see what women think is appealing on Rob and/or he's jealous.

Gozde said...

at chadash po? ani afpaam lo raiti ivrit po! brucha habaah!

Gozde said...

Sandra, how are you? How is Brasil? I have seen BD2 5 times and I like more every time I see it.

Gozde said...

It may well happen before the season's out...lol...but right now wish you the same. :-) Am I right in saying you are in Oz? If so, you'll be having a very Happy New Year, as well... ;-)

Gozde said...

I smell sex all over you!!

Gozde said...

It´s what. It´s hunger you smell. I want to eat lunch. You want to eat lunch. We´re people in the world. We need to eat and talk.

Gozde said...

Well, many are really surprised, they react in the way like: "He really can act" or " I would never've thought that I should say this but RPattz is very very good in Cosmopolis" or "You're not gonna believe it but Pattinson is phenomenal in this movie". A lot are like that.
Then you have this kind: "I thought he wasn't bad in RM and WFE, but he is brilliant in Cosmopolis" or " Pattinson isn't a bad actor. I don't like Twilight but he surprised me in WFE and RM".
Then there are those about his future like: "From all the cast of Twilight he's for me the only one to have a career" or "He's chosing very smartly, he's gonna work with Herzog, Michôd" or "He's gonna be interesting to follow in his career, he's a fine actor" or "I wouldn't say no too when I got the chance to play in a franchise and get me a big paycheck. Now he can do what he wants". And so on.
Many express their opinion about the movie and add that Rob was "good", "excellent", "brilliant", "superb", "surprisingly good" in it.
There are also many tweets about people who have watched Remember me and Water for Elephants on DVD or television and this tweets are all very positive in the sense that the tweeters "didn't know that the movie was so good and that Pattinson was really good".
Rob has also won over new fans who admitted that they didn't get his appeal until they saw Water for Elephants and "got" it totally.
Be aware that mostly positive tweets are mentioned, there will be negative ones too (esp. Cosmo) but apparently many positive concerning RM and WFE. Their word of mouth is really good.

Gozde said...

Ha, that is really good to hear, thank you so much for answering. I guess Rob's Twilight image and all the prejudices that went with that stood really in the way. These guy-comments sound really good and intelligent, I know what the negative ones are like but winning over man after man after man after these films imagine how much more the fanboys will get after Rob's upcoming movies .... :-) I'm really having a BIG smile on my face now *grins*

Gozde said...

Hey, what are you doing? Now I have to go and watch it all over again....but I can't right now :-/
I hear Rob's voice in my head while reading all your quotations, do you want to quote the whole movie? Well, just go on, I'll enjoy :-)))

Gozde said...

Translate please ?

Gozde said...

Oh, I love this. You know, on Rob's Imdb board they always had and still have to deal with potstirrers and nasty posters. One time, a few months back, someone had started a topic, full of hate towards Rob and the regulars started to answer with quotes of Cosmopolis, just like what we did now. It became so funny but they had to stop because every comment brought the topic on top of his message board and that wasn't the goal. Normally they don't reply, they ignore, so after a while the topic goes down and down 'til nowbody reads it anymore.

Gozde said...

Can you imagine that more and more men are coming here, not just David (long time no see) and Sean? That would give a whole new dimension LOL

Gozde said...

LOL, yes I was planning on it ;) It feels like it is already classic! Will have to rewatch it soon too.
Show me my car!

Gozde said...

That sounds very funny and what a good idea! But I guess the ignoring works out best in the long run :)

Gozde said...

I would love that! Could be very interesting :) Hope they don´t get scared away by our gushing...

Gozde said...

It was, to say the least, a very original idea to deal with it LOL
The regulars there are some tough ladies, in a way I have respect for them. You know some die hard Kristen fanboys had found a way to delete topics with comments and all. Can you imagine? Our threads here gone forever? So what did the ladies there? Each time they saved the topic, when it was gone, they restarted it, time and again. Plus: they didn't say anything (most of time not), they just restarted the topic until it got deleted again. Restart, deleted, restart, deleted. If I wanted to read the tweet thread, I had to hurry 'cause it would be deleted before I had time to read. it happened with like 70% of the topic's for, I think, at least 8 months, still happens now but not often anymore. They didn't give on. It happened also on Rob's movie boards, like Cosmopolis, I think Bel ami too: review topics were deleted and restarted.
Now, you don't want to know how the ladies reacted this summer after 'it' had happened. No question of respect Rob's choices, no way. I prefered the more respectful attempt of Robsessed, but in a way I could understand their frustration. When I here posters here at times speaking of trolls I smile, wondering how they would react if they had to read what was published their with all the Twilight haters.

Gozde said...

I don't think they will like to get involved in the females typical convo's LOL

Gozde said...

I asked, Are you new here? I have never seen Hebrew before! WElcome!

Gozde said...

Thanks Solas - it was awfully nosey of me getting into your conversation with some one else -Sorry! Just saw these Hebrew words and got curious ! I Don't comment much,don't know what to say with some madness that goes on and with occasional pap pics plus the Disqus woes.But glad you and some of others still there- so hi! from me to you and Yes happy holidays -Happy Chanukah,hope your holidays are peaceful,happy and filled with sense of fulfillment. Thanks

Gozde said...

I think so too, maybe we can have female and male threads ?;)))

Gozde said...

You know so much bb! That is really interesting information and the work of the ladies sounds like Sisyphean challenge... I admire the patience, don´t know if I could keep it up that long...

Gozde said...

Thanks Parilla; I hope you and yours have happy holidays as well.

It wasn't nosy for you to get into a conversation; it's a blog. And I am not here much; I check the dashboard and sometimes will look at a thread for context of a comment, and that's when I sometimes see something or someone new. I don't wish to comment with the present disqus set-up as well as various arguments, insults, and hurt feelings. If Rob reads the blog he knows I wish him the best; if he doesn't, I still wish him the best, and either way I don't think it will have any effect on his life. He knows he has fans. Eventually he might understand the various reasons and styles of being a fan; if not, he will survive anyway and we will survive anyway.

It was foolish of me to type in Hebrew words, especially realizing others who do not understand Hebrew see the blog. So I edited accordingly.

Gozde said...

I have a slight idea what the female threads would be about, but I've no idea about the male threads though. Great asses perhaps :))

Gozde said...

I agree. Rob had to read for that part and wanted it so badly. I think there's probably a lot of mutual respect there.

Gozde said...

Great idea. Then they'd have to show Rob's brilliance

Gozde said...

I think the studio has to do that, and I'm not sure the studio for Cosmopolis has the clout. But yes, he needs a film where the studio can do a good push for awards season

Gozde said...

I wanted to tell to let know that this site isn't alone in dealing with nastity, but the ladies there are tough. They're used to have discussions and they sure can defend themselves. Woudln't want to offend them, wouldn't be my best day LOL

Gozde said...

So we could learn from them? ;) What a pity that I even have to ask.... why can it all be happy and calm all the time???

Gozde said...

LOL! maybe with the (guy) movies, Rob has coming up they will have more stuff to discuss...

Gozde said...

Mmm, I wouldn't say we could learn from them. They (the regulars) are very pro Rob and will reject everything or everybody that makes him unhappy if you know what I mean. I prefer the respectful approach of Robsessed, but don't condamn theirs' 'cause I know the lunatic posters they had to deal with.
And why we can't be happy and calm all the time? Because we're humans. How boring would life be if everybody was happy all the time? No beautiful love stories, no big reconciliations, no satisfaction in forgiving... Nah, like I've said before: rain after sunshine, sunshine after rain :))

Gozde said...

You are right of course, it´s only human... I´m just enjoying it so much when the atmosphere is light and friendly here :)
Do you have snow too with the freezing? We just have a bit of a snow storm outside...

Gozde said...

Hi Whence, we are totally getting it today.
Heavy snowing almost all of the day. My hubby gave up today after three times shipping the snow. And we went to our Weihnachtsmarkt again and it was a Winter wonderland! Totally beautiful. I really hope Lotterie had a save journey though I think Theresia was Not so Heavy snow in the Köln-Bonn area.

Gozde said...

Hallo ladies, I am on the ground in Bonn ! Massive delays in Berlin and Copenhagen...ended up at hotel 1.30 am without my suitcase LOL So now I nee to go shopping for toothbrush before doctors appointment !
BTW no snow here, whereas in Norht Germany and Denmark TONS ;_)))

Gozde said...

Hi Lotte, glad you made it safe and sound even with the inconveniences :-)
So now you can concentrate on getting healthy again.
Yes, we have A LOT of snow here, we were shovelling snow all morning.
Hope to hear of you soon :-)

Gozde said...

Hello Olive! Wow that sounds really like winter wonderland :) We only have a bit of snow here but also very cold. Just read Lottes comment and I´m glad she landed savely, without toothbrush though ;) Time is running so fast now, I can´t believe that it is only 2 weeks untile Christmas... I have not been to a christmas market yet, too much going on but I hope for the next week end :) Do you bake cookies?

Gozde said...

Hi Lotte, so glad to hear that you landed safely! The lack of suitcase is annoying though... I´ll be thinking of you and wishing that they treat you like you deserve - with love :) Take care and tty soon! * big big bear hug* <3

Gozde said...

Next time when things aren't that nice again (hope it won't happen though) you just have to think how much you're gonna enjoy the next funny threads and you'll feel better LOL
We've had a bit of snow in the north of the country, more in the south before the weekend, then the temperature got a bit higher but for the next days it will be freezing again, without snow this time. We were supposed to have a snowstorm last Friday but it didn't turn out the way they had predicted, we were lucky this time. So many people had stayed at home that it was probably the most quiet trafic Friday of the year :))

Gozde said...

Good advice bb :) Same here with the weather but it is supposed to get warm for the weekend. I am going to bed with ginger tea (not skinny dipping ;) and a hot water bottle.... ( at least SOMETHING is hot...)

Gozde said...

Do you still use hot water bottles? We use cherry pit pillows :))

Gozde said...

I have both but the water bottle is quicker....

Gozde said...

The water bottle brings back memories of childhood: freezing nights, a water bottle at your feet and hoping it wouldn't wet the sheets which happened more than once LOL

Gozde said...

Hi Whence, I hope you'll get this comment. I've real problems with disqus the last 24 hours. Most of the time I tried it didn't even open up, now I've managed on the dashboard at least. We're having a lot of snow here. It didn't stop snowing the whole day. But it's only a little freezing so it's melting and more comes from above. We are shoveling snow the whole day long. But the kids love it. Oh, yes, I love baking cookies. But I don't always manage to bake some because we are so busy in december, a lot of christmas party, so... It's the same every year. Hope you are well and hope disqus will stop acting up so I can read comments again... :-)

Gozde said...

Hi Olive, yes it worked :) Sorry about your disqus proplems, that is annoying... So it seems, you get "drowned2 in snow ;) It was snowing here all day too but not very heavy and the temperature was +2, so the streets stayed wet. The week end is supposed to be even warmer. I´m sure it is fun for the children where you live :) Did they build a snowman? Your busy decamber sounds exhausting - hope you can relax afterwards? I´m on my limit here too at the moment, so many decisions, and much to do...I´m VERY much looking forward to the hollidays :))) with some Rob movies and cookies :) I have not made them yet, hopefully next week..... What a pity that we live so far away otherwise I would bring you some over :) I hope you can read this and disqus behaves!

Gozde said...

Well, I can read this on dashboard, but disqus doesn't behave AT ALL! Do I understand it right you can open the comments as always?
I'd very much like to taste your cookies, it's really a shame we live so far apart.
I can not relax until January. On the holidays I have to work unfortunately, only 24th we are celebrating with the whole family.

Gozde said...

LOL! Mine doesn´t leak...;)

Gozde said...

Yes everything is the same for me with disqus except that it doesn´t update as it used to. There is no "new comment" to klick on....
I´m sorry that you will be busy until january.... but at least you have the 24th :) Your business is a really hard one, not much free time. But I´m sure you love it anyway, hm? *sending some virtual Vanillekipferl*

Gozde said...

Do you feel better, whence, 'cause you were having a cold?
