Is it unusual to have this amount of snow so late in winter?

Happy birthday palooka,

Hope you have a great day!! 8)

That was a great review and exactly why I enjoyed the film. :)

I saw the film last weekend and I did something I haven't done since been on the board and that was read reviews before seeing the film. I used to go three months or so before a Clint film was released here without looking at reviews or member comments. Luckily nowdays, the films are released at the same times as the U.S, so I don't have to wait.

Anyway after reading Christopher's review and a couple online, I had convinced myself I wouldn't like the film but I did. It isn't the best film Clint has ever made but for what it is, it's fine. A review on IMDB claimed it wasn't Hollywood enough and should have thrown in some non facts to bolster the story but that was one of the things I liked. My wife called it "A European feel good film". No big budget explosions or bombastic soundtrack. Just a nice film. Stick to the facts and at an hour an a half, I didn't think it dragged at all.

I got a little distracted early in the film with a poster of Letters From Iwo Jima in one scene and one of the guys wearing a Pale Rider T-Shirt in another, thinking it was going to be like that all the way through but I didn't notice any other Clint references after that.

Overall, I was pleasantly surprised.

Coogan's Bluff?

How long should we wait for his nest project?  :-[ :-[ I was really hyped for this one.

Usually between 3-12 months. :)

Clint Eastwood's 15:17 to Paris

It seems the cinema goers here won't see the film unless you put Clint's name in the title?  ???

You were probably a bit distracted by the costume of the other actor in this scene. ;)

Clint certainly was. :D

I remember seeing it back when released at the cinema. I must have been 14 or 15 and a friend wanted to see it. Scared the hell out of me. Can't remember much about it now but I'm still not a fan of horror movies. :)

General Discussion / Re: CLINT PICS!
« on: January 27, 2018, 02:31:25 AM »
I was up the coast today for a lunch with family and we stopped into a thrift type store and there was a framed photo of Clint Eastwood.

I don't remember ever seeing the pic before. I couldn't take a photo of it and the asking price was $75. I offered $40 but was turned down flat.

Anyway the pic was of Clint sitting with his feet up reading a newspaper. It looked like he was inside a houseboat or some sort of boat. Looked like the 1970's from Clint's hairstyle.

Just wondering if anyone has this or has seen it before?

The photographer's name was on the bottom of the photo but for the life of me, I can't remember it.

EDIT: I just googled Clint Eastwood reading a newspaper in images and it popped up straight away.


What a cracking show this was. Great songs and what a musical genius Carole King was. Writing music and songs from the age of 16 and some of the songs made famous by other artists that I didn't realise Carole wrote.

What interests me is how it's going to be a thriller like in the trailer because with the real life people playing themselves it's obvious they survive? ???

This was a real pleasure. Great cast and songs and when the leading man can sing just as good as anyone these days, you can't go wrong. Great toe tapping fun.

I can see this becoming another stage show musical in a couple of years.
