General Discussion / Help to Find perfect book
« on: April 26, 2020, 12:35:21 PM »
    I've been visiting this website daily for many years now and it's been a great pleasure to be talking about the legend with this enthusiastic, great group of moviegoers. So, I really couldn't find any better place to bring up my question to. Hence I'm gonna translate a book on Clint Eastwood into my native language, I wanted to find the perfect source that is right and deep enough about The Man's cinema and philosophy. and I'm sure that there are so many of you who have read much more than I have about Clint. Your help and suggestions would be a massive help to me and will be appreciated surely. Thank you in advance. Your friend.

On Instagram, I asked Steve Campanelli whether we see another Clint Eastwood picture soon or not. and he replied: 'Not until the end of the year.'

 so, I guess that is a YES.

Hello everybody,
When reading an interesting article about the making of Richard Jewell, I learned that Clint is planning to shoot his next picture in Hawaii, in the end of next spring. Nothing was revealed about that project.
That article was published in Transfuge magazine, issue 136, February 2020, which is a French magazine on litterature, music, movies, art.
Jean-Paul Chaillet, a French reporter specialized in movies, spent a couple days on Richard Jewell movie set.
He visited many Clint Eastwood movies sets in the past.

Well. I can't wait.

Finally, I got to see Richard Jewell last night. pretty solid film. one of Clint's very best paced, acted, photographed, and in overall, one of Clint's very best films. There are a couple of scenes that can be ranked among Eastwood's best achievements. They don't make films like this anymore, simple, deep and human. This is one of 2019's best films. Kudos.
10/10

just WOW. Speechless. I'd have booked for all of these films. it's once in a lifetime to see all these memorable and cult films at once. I wish I could.

well, this is the first acting nomination in a Clint Eastwood movie after American Sniper. And it's a female one. the last one was Angelina Jolie in Changeling. Eastwood has a ridiculous record of his actors getting Oscar nominations. 12 actors have been nominated for an Oscar in his films. 5 have won it. and now 4th acting nomination of Kathy Bates. stellar career.

American Sniper made the New York Times list of "The 10 Most Influential Films of the Decade," compiled by Times co-chief film critics Manohla Dargis and A.O. Scott:

https://www.nytimes.com/2019/11/24/movies/best-movies-2010s-decade.html

I didn't take the film as one-sided in the direction of "pro-military, pro-gun flag waving," nor, I believe, did most here, but obviously many in the audience did, which partly explains the film's great box-office success.

Same here KC. I don't think that Eastwood is "pro-military" and "pro-gun" especially after knowing that he has also directed Flags of Our Fathers and Letters.
on the other hand, I do agree that American Sniper is one of the most influential films of the decade. No one saw that coming. that project was passed by 2 directors due to budjet diagreements with WB. but Clint had a magic wand and the rest is history.

It's still a surprise to me that it's not at least doing moderately well. I havn't seen it if course but the advance
word and reviews have been good and it does contain recognisable names..
I guess as many here have stated, lack of big star names has counted against it..
Of course in the long run a quality piece of work in the Eastwood canon is all that really counts. Look
how many of us today count Honky Tonk Man amongst his best work...

Agreed. the point is that Clint has made a taut and great picture. the story he chased for 4 years and I've read the script and I can tell why he was so interested in it. it's a great script from a great scriptwriter. Moreover, it's not Jersey Boys or 1517 to Paris with unknown actors remain unknown afterward.  Clint has made a hell of a star out of PWH. He has all the attention and applauds of audiences and critics. So, Clint's gamble here has won terrifically.
we can list so many reasons on how come this picture didn't get the crowd it deserves, but those who have seen it, have spoken. It gained an A score on Cinemascore which is terrific. and 96% of approval on RT.

above all, this picture is a very important chapter and installment in Clint's filmography and it enriches the profile of Clint Eastwood as one of the last great masters of melodrama and form of tragedy in the post-modern era of cinema. John Ford made his last feature at the age of 70, and Howard Hawks made his at the age of 74. They then had their careers stopped. finally, For the vast majority of moviegoers, Clint Eastwood is a positive force.

And, he's still relevant.

          Well, according to Box Office Mojo and some facts Richard Jewell opened up to mediocre returns. 2500 theatres and a box office of $5,000,000 for the opening weekend is pretty dismal. In fact, it's the worst Eastwood opening in 40 years....

Well, it was all predictable at first place. so many directors had passed this project before, Fox/Disney passed it. but it was a personal project for Clint and WB helped him do it. No bradley cooper or tom hanks or even Clint Eastwood (in front of camera) here. Unlike Sully and American Sniper, it wasn't a new, more recent story, it was already a forgotten story. and older people just don't get in lines for movies on the first days. this is not Jumanji.

Warner Bros. Hits Back at Atlanta Paper Over ‘Richard Jewell’ Legal Threat

How low Hollywood have become. there is always something to hammer a clint Eastwood picture with. so desperate.

Pete Hammond, top critic, from Deadline Hollywood:

Clint Eastwood Still On A Roll With Compelling True Story Of Unjustly Accused Bombing Suspect

Quote
At 89, Clint Eastwood might be one of the oldest directors ever to make a major studio movie, much less one that already has made the AFI and National Board of Review Top 10 lists for 2019. But that is the case for this remarkably durable actor, producer, and director who even writes the music score for most of his films (for this one he just wrote a theme that was incorporated throughout Arturo Sandoval’s score)

Quote
Hauser, Bates, Hamm, Wilde and a terrific Rockwell are all great in the film, and there’s fine work as well from Nina Arianda as Nadya, Bryant’s legal assistant and now wife. Eastwood has made one of his best films yet. Imagine that. He is simply an extraordinary filmmaker.

and regarding Paul Walter Hauser:

Quote
Still, this is Jewell’s movie, and Paul Walter Hauser — the actor Eastwood chose for the role — is nothing less than sensational and heartbreaking as a man who did the right thing, only to have the facts turned on him, nearly destroying his life and that of his mother Bobbi (Kathy Bates) in the process.

Thank you honkytonkman. videos were great. I really liked the interviews.

With AFI and NBR, two of the most prestigious circles of critics, academians, professionals, and cinema lovers recognizing Richard Jewell as one of the very best films of the year, we can easily admit that Richard Jewell is a welcomed comeback to form for Clint Eastwood and it is amazing.

+
remember the time we were all full of doubt as it was announced that Clint has cast Paul Walter Hauser as Richard Jewell? and now, everyone, even the critics who disliked the movie, confesses that he not only delivered one of the best performances of the year but also he is dominant in the movie. so, Clint knows. we know nothing.

With Richard Jewell, that decade of movies seems to be over and it already has gained recognition. currently, it holds 93% of approval on rotten tomatoes. and with NBR and AFI coming this week, we can see how this will turn out.

18
When we talk about accolades or awards or nominations, we don't necessarily mean only the OSCARS. American Sniper didn't get a single nomination at golden globes or Bafta. but the academy recognized it with 6 noms. it's clear that Clint has got so many lovers in the academy, yet. of course, it was 5 years ago.

Hello everybody,
This year, it seems that the Oscars front-runners are The Irishman, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, 1917 and A Marriage Story.
So, what do you think about the Oscars chances of Richard Jewell movie ?
Would you see it at the Golden Globes ?
And how enthusiastic you are before the release of Richard Jewell ?

I'm totally positive. tracking down so many critics and awards analysts, I can tell that Richard Jewell has got so much attention from guilds members. especially the performances of the movie have been hailed as one of the bests of the year for each one. Paul Walter Hauser is completely in the discussion and oh yes, Kathy Bates too. She has delivered a powerhouse artwork. this upcoming week will be the week of NBR and AFI top10 films of the year announcements and I'm pretty sure Richard Jewell has a solid chance to get in there. we will see.

p.s. Awards chances are not determined by poster or trailer.
