How "complicated" and "rocky" was his relationship with Priscilla? :confused: I haven't followed Johnny news all that closely, but from what little I've read, I always thought they got along pretty well.

Yea, what's up with that? I always thought they had one of the better coach/student relationships? :confused:

I thought he moved because Priscilla wasn't being "tough enough" on him? Or do I have it all wrong?

I hope that this is as interesting as the blurb makes it sound!

Ummm...it's about JOHNNY WEIR! :lol:

On the one hand.....On the other hand.....On the third hand.....On the fourth hand.....On the fifth hand.....

The movie hasn't opened yet. I hope you don't spend this much time thinking about other things which have not yet occurred!!! :P

I think that Weir and Hill were very close . . . and that was the problem. Over years together, they'd come to be more like friends than coach and student. Johnny said that as much as he owed to Priscilla, he needed to be with a coach whom he viewed as a coach -- someone whom he'd obey and work his ass off for. I think it was a very hard decision for both of them but one they both accepted as necessary for Johnny's skating.

Can't wait the news about this upcoming film.

I hope JWe and the film director/producer/whoever come to the premiere. THAT would be the coolest thing possible. Especially if they take questions or talk to the audience.

This is the first time I've read about the reality series - I think Johnny would be better served to focus on his skating rather than an ongoing series.

Yeah, I'd rather see him do that instead of doing this TV show, but Johnny has never listened to me....

I don't think that this is a good idea for him personally. Potentially, it could be good for skating.

Here's the press release: http://web.icenetwork.com/news/article.jsp?ymd=20090512&content_id=64656&vkey=ice_pressrelease

Well, since these guys have apparently been following him around for three years now, he's probably long used to them. In fact, removing them now might throw his aura off.:D

Love the movie blurb at the SIFF site
Love the classification under "Documentary" and "Gay/Lesbian":

I've got my tickets! :kickass:
I'm going to be away for the first showing, and I have to get to Kirkland at 11 am on 5 June for the second. :yikes:

Yet another sign that I never should have moved away from Seattle. . .

Love the classification under "Documentary" and "Gay/Lesbian":

Who determines the classification? The filmmakers, or some board of reviewers?

Yesterday (May 13) was the press screening of Pop Star on Ice at SIFF, and thus far, I have googled up two reviews of the film! :)

I'm guessing the programmers of the festival.

Nice reviews so far, thank you for posting! :cheer2:
