Most overrated Oscar winner since, oh, let's see ... maybe Forrest Gump.

Nah, Titanic, The English Patient, Shakespeare In Love even more so.

Kathy Bates didn’t win the Oscar, Laura Dern took home the statuette for Marriage Story.

“I’ve seen fire and I’ve seen rain.”

What a difference a week makes. Last weekend, hot and 40C +. This weekend, 20C and three days of constant torrential rains. 😳😳😳

Anyone seen Yellowstone starring Kevin Costner?

I've seen about 5 episodes and while it is interesting, I'm finding a lot of the plot so depressing. The daughter of Costner's character has to be the most loathsome character I've ever witnessed in a TV show as well.

I enjoyed it much more than I thought I would. A very solid film which was interesting from start to finish. Performances were excellent. Looking forward to a second viewing with Mrs Palooka.

No cameo in this one palooka?

I would be interested in seeing how Eastwood would handle a horror movie. Play Misty for Me comes close, but is considered more of a thriller.

I reckon The Beguiled is more horror related than Play Misty For Me.

I’m a fan of C J Box and his “Joe Pickett” novels. Love to see Clint direct an adaptation of those stories.

What’s the best autobiography to read on Clint Eastwood? There’s so many out there!!


Hi Dave, Clint has never written his autobiography but one the best biographies is Clint Eastwood: A Biography by Richard Schickel.

It came out in the mid 1990's.

General Discussion / Your Favorite Decade Of Eastwood Films
« on: January 19, 2020, 03:11:39 AM »
The latest topics about favorite films from each decade had me searching the board and I found this old topic/poll.

Your Favorite Decade Of Eastwood Films

It's been 16 years since that poll. Time for a new poll. 8)

Anyone who voted before, would you now change your vote to a different decade?

1: American Sniper
2:The Mule
3: Sully
4: Trouble With The Curve
5: Jersey Boys
6: J Edgar
7: Hereafter
8: The 15:17 to Paris


Richard Jewell
(Not Seen Yet)

The top 3 are standouts for me for this decade, the bottom 5 I all enjoyed, even The 15:17 To Paris.

I'll update this list next month when Richard Jewell opens here.

16
1. Gran Torino
2. Million Dollar Baby
3. Mystic River
4. Letters From Iwo Jima
5. Flags of Our Fathers
6. Space Cowboys
7. Invictus
8. Changeling
9. Blood Work


The top 4 are brilliant, the bottom 5 good solid films.

 

17
1.Unforgiven
2. In the Line of Fire
3. White Hunter, Black Heart
4. A Perfect World
5. The Bridges of Madison County
6. True Crime
7. Absolute Power
8. Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil
9. The Rookie


A vast improvement from the previous decade. The top 5 are great, the bottom 4 are good, yes even The Rookie.

18
1. Pale Rider
2. Bird
3. Bronco Billy
4. Honkytonk Man
5. Any Which Way You Can
6. Tightrope
7. Heartbreak Ridge
8. Sudden Impact
9. The Dead Pool
10. Firefox
11. City Heat
12. Pink Cadillac


After having a hard time compiling lists for the 1960's and 1970's, this was probably the hardest decade so far. Because for me, apart from the top 2, the rest aren't very memorable. I'm not saying they're all bad because each film does have some charm or certain memorable scenes but on a whole compared to most of the films from the 1960's and 70's they're weaker.

19
1:  Dirty Harry
2:  The Outlaw Josey Wales
3:  Thunderbolt And Lightfoot
4:  High Plains Drifter
5:  Magnum Force
6:  Play Misty For Me
7:  The Beguiled
8:  Escape From Alcatraz
9:  Kelly's Heroes
10: The Enforcer
11: The Gauntlet
12: Every Which Way But Loose
13: Two Mules For Sister Sara
14: Joe Kidd
15: Breezy
16: The Eiger Sanction


The top three would never change but 4 through 16 could change from time to time.

20
1. The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly
2. A Fistful of Dollars
3. For a Few Dollars More
4. Coogan's Bluff
5. Hang 'em High
6. Where Eagles Dare
7. Paint Your Wagon


I rank them the same as Christopher except I swapped 2 and 3.
