Funny as it is, I want KINGDOM OF HEAVEN to do well.

I want it to be everything that TROY wasn't. Because never has anyone had so much riding on one picture than Orlando does at this moment. TROY was a flop not because of the acting but because of the writing. The movie was ass backwards from the miniseries version HELEN OF TROY which was the most accurate adaptation I've ever seen. If Wolfgang had followed that guideline, I think the movie would've been adequate. But KINGDOM OF HEAVEN ... God I've been looking forward to this movie for over a year, isn't that sad? Its so close. Twenty Nineteen days. Every review I've read is gold, every trailer I've seen has me captivated and sitting with my jaw to the floor and I'm just praying upon prayers that god this will be it. This will be the film that proves everyone wrong about Orlando; that he can do more than be a pretty boy sidekick, that he has a talent for being more than the eyecandy in a movie and dammit, I want him to succeed if not to prove all those assholes out there wrong for teasing him about being an idiot who can't string two words together. Yes, I'm looking at you Jonathan Rhys Meyers.

Christ, I get tired of being made fun of for being a fan. I get tired of explaining to people the difference between a fan and a fangirl. And I hate being made fun of by hacks who categorize the whole of Orlando's talent on seeing TROY. I'm tired of explaining to these idiots that he has talent, that he isn't an idiot. Why should I have to justify my fandom? Why should I have to justify why I like who I like just because someone else doesn't? I don't give two fucks what you think. I don't give a shit if you think he has no talent. You don't get into Guildhall without having talent. I don't give two shits if you think he sucked in TROY. I don't give a shit if you like him at all but I do. And I will argue you to the ground about why you're wrong about him not having any talent if you want to discuss the point with me.

I am a fan. A fan idolizes more on the basis of talent and merit than looks. Although the looks help that is not all of it. And the opposite of a fan is a fangirl. Not all who interest themselves in Orlando Bloom are fangirls who want to know what size his shoes are to make jokes about how big his dick is. Although that is fun, its not all of us. A select few of us are fans because we can appreciate that he has talent, but that he has yet to fully express that. I'm hoping KINGDOM OF HEAVEN begins to show everyone that theres more to Orlando than pointy ears and swash swash buckle buckle.

So to all you nonfans out there reading this? If you don't like my fandom? You can kiss my ass.

I think I got terribly lucky with this username. But I digress.

I'm Ree -- the friendly mod ( orlicat ) in another raincoat, so to speak. I'm almost 24 years old ( on Saturday natch! ) and have been a fan of The Bloom for sometime now. Two years. He's just everything that other celebrities aren't barring a few. He's unique, talented and gorgeous to boot. I'm always around here or there, checking up on pictures, fic ( *cough* ) and stuff. Feel free to drop me a line sometime.

So, I finally figured out how to join and then it took me a few minutes to figure out how to post. I'm a slow learner. But anyway, a BIG hello to everyone. My name is Stephanie and I'm 23 years old. What else can I say other than I love all things Orlando Bloom. And I'm really looking forward to Elizabethtown. Does anyone else want to hear his "American" accent? I'm dying to hear it! But that's about all I've got to say. Hope to talk with you all more later.

Hi. Thanks for starting this community-it looks really nice. I'm Joy and I completely love Orlando. I've loved him for quite a while-I'm not a stalker or freakishly obsessed, but I really love him. He's the personification of perfection (ok i know thats pushing it) Anyway, I'm looking forward to being a part of this community.

...if anyone else knows what orli's full, entire name was. i just found out and i was like:

*stunned silence* @_@

i mean, it isnt bad or anything...its just...different. ya know? his name is eccentric enough... this makes it more...prominent/courteous/gentlemanly for me.

I get first post, because obviously I rock like that. I am not a teeniebopper, psycho or ultra-obsessor, I just decided that me and my friends should have a place where we can talk about all things Bloom. Movie news, pictures, whatever we want. Mostly we all either roleplay him, know someone who does or roleplay with an Orlando somewhere. If you don't, thats fine and are still a fan, join. Bask in the obsessiveness of people who are just like you.

Stroke the precious? Yes. He looooves it. Have fun and be good to each other.
