This may have been mentioned years ago but I don't remember ever hearing about it until I saw a facebook post this week where it said, that at the 2 minute and 58 seconds mark of Hey Jude, Paul McCartney says, "[email protected]#king Hell". Of course it has been toned down but if you crank up the stereo and right at that moment you can hear it.

I seem to recall Million Dollar Baby only taking about 32 days to film.

^ That was a great game. Yankees won, 7-1. Five Yankees hit home runs, including Brett Gardner, the only guy in the starting lineup who's still with the Yankees. (He had an RBI double to bring in the only run in today's 1-0 Yankee win over the Toronto Blue Jays.)

A great game and a great day. I remember that it poured with rain the night before and I was worried if it continued the game would be a washout but we woke up the next morning to clear blue skies before heading to the Library, the ballgame and finally dinner at a Greek restaurant.

Good memories. 8) 8)

There was a movie made a few years back about those penguins.

And the final piece of the puzzle.

So what’s the deal with this new Tarantino movie always being advertised as “The 9th film by Tarantino”? Any other film is always advertised as “A film by” so and so. Whoever is the director. I’m finding it very strange indeed.

I'll check that out, thanks!

I only found it by accident. I started typing Classics, into the search engine and after CL, Clint Eastwood popped up and the first title was this. 8)

In Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, Quentin Tarantino wants the audience to know right from the get-go just how dire the prospects of Leonardo DiCaprio’s TV heavy, Rick Dalton, have become in the topsy-turvy Tinseltown landscape of 1969. How does he signal that exactly? An agent (played by Al Pacino with lip-smacking, scenery-chewing relish) tells him that he can give his career a shot in the arm by going to Italy and starring in quickie spaghetti Westerns like Nebraska Jim and macaroni spy knockoffs such as Operazione Dyn-O-Mite!
Of course, since it’s a Tarantino movie, this particular vocational crossroads isn’t just pulled from the cinema-fiction ether. The movie-mad director took his inspiration from cinema fact. In Once Upon a Time, Tarantino is referencing and riffing on the handfuls of struggling, real-life American
B-listers and macho small-screen wannabes who made the transatlantic pilgrimage to Italy (and Spain) in a desperate bid to become the next expat leading man à la Clint Eastwood (who’d rocketed to international fame thanks to Sergio Leone’s “Man With No Name” trilogy — A Fistful of Dollars, For a Few Dollars More, and The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly). Here, a look at Eastwood and some of the other Hollywood hopefuls who headed to Rome for a career boost and the dream of a once-upon-a-time, fairy-tale ending.

What is Sad Hill Unearthed?

Sad Hill Unearthed is a full length documentary about the amazing story behind one of the most important locations in film history. We explore the dreams and motivations behind the fans but also the transformation of art, music and film in a substitute for religion.
In 1966 the Spanish Army built a huge cemetery with over 5000 graves at Mirandilla Valley in Burgos for the final sequence in the film "The Good the Bad and the Ugly". After the shooting, the whole place was left behind and for 49 years, nature covered every tomb.
In October 2015 a group of film fans decided to start digging... and under 3 inches of ground they found the original paved circle. For months, people from all around Europe travelled to Sad Hill to unearth and rebuild the place. We have been filming the process... even before they started!

This documentary is on Netflix. I stumbled across it today. I highly recommend it to fans of the film. Clint appears a couple of times talking about the making of the film. Including the infamous blowing up the bridge fiasco.

This was quite good. You have the usual story of boy/girl have always been friends but never taken it further than just that and then you throw in this original idea of the guy having an accident when the power goes out all over the world for 12 seconds one night. Next thing you know nobody remembers the Beatles.

Just a feel good rom-com/date night film. Throw in a good soundtrack and it's a fun couple of hours.

This was a great read. It doesn't just look at the moon landing mission but covers the whole US space program from the 1950's through to the last Apollo mission. If you love NASA and anything to do with the early days of the space program, I highly recommend it.

As I started reading that thread, I wondered if there was just the one book written instead of a series... and then I got to the place in the thread where I asked that in 2013! ;D :D

;D ;D

A Rawhide book... that's interesting!

I knew someone would ask about it, so I searched and found this topic about it. I actually started the thread. :)

My movie tastes have certainly changed over the years. 30 years ago, I would've loved this film. Now I watch and just shake my head and think what is the point? Of course it made a bucket load of money because the kiddies love this shoot em up, blow em up type action films.


Why would I watch this if I didn't like the first film, I can hear you asking. I'm not entirely sure why but this time I said to myself, switch the brain off for two hours and just laugh at how many times Keanu Reeves gets beaten, shot etc etc and still gets up and walks away. My favorite scene in this film is a knife fight on the New York subway. 2 guys going at it and four other passengers just sitting there. No one is screaming or trying to get to another carriage. Just sitting there like it's an every day occurrence on the subway. Comical.


I had a movie night with my brother in laws and nephews and had a double header of 1980's Stallone. Interesting that in this film, Rambo doesn't kill anyone (maybe the cop that falls outta the chopper but he should've been wearing his seatbelt) but there's plenty of kills in Part 2.


Rambo goes back to Vietnam and finds missing POW's. Mayhem ensues.


This was great. A guy and girl live next door to each other as kids, go their separate ways after high school and reconnect 20 years later. There's a fantastic cameo in this film. I won't say who it is but he steals the film for about 20 minutes.


I don't know why but I love films about baseball. This is great. The story of Jackie Robinson, the first negro to play in the major leagues and his struggles against racism. So many familiar faces in this film too. Fantastic.

Matt's post and photo inspired me to climb up to the attic and take a pic of my collection. Sorry it's a little blurry.

Did you already have the other three movies in the 4 pack set?

Yeah. I think it was $20 and I bit the bullet, thinking it might be the only way I'll own it.


A few weeks ago an advertisement popped up on Facebook page about this film being released on DVD again here in Australia. I remember back in the early 2000's when I first got a DVD player I turned down buying Play Misty For Me because it was priced at $32.

I've always regretted it because I haven't seen the DVD since, only as a part of boxed sets. I actually bought a 4 pack of Clint's films about 8 years ago that had Play Misty For Me in it, since I thought it was my only chance to have the film in my collection. But I always wanted it as a stand alone.

Bought it today for $13. 8) 8)

I've got a few Eastwood movie books. (tie-ins, novelizations) They're boxed up in the attic. I came across them in last weeks clean up. I remember years ago I had a lot of books based on movies or tie ins from films I enjoyed. I culled them but kept the Eastwood ones.

I've got a feeling Heartbreak Ridge and Honkytonk Man are among them.

That’s quite a bold shirt that Clint is wearing.

Doesn't everyone wear Hawaiian shirts in summer?
