Yeah, depression sucks.  I know.  It is not your friend.  It can become your biggest foe, worst nightmare and ultimate, most bitter enemy. 

God Bless you, Mr. Cornell.  May you Rest In Peace, sir.

Thanks, Richard and sorry about that, Christopher.  I incorrectly assumed everyone knew that album cover.  Led Zeppelin IV, aka "Runes" is fantastic, as is Abbey Road and Cosmo's Factory.

I still prefer Spotify and CDs over vinyl but it's great revisiting the format, which I did this past weekend to great delight.

I would love to see The Gauntlet in the big screen.  Bet it would be fun, especially with friends.

Very good.  More than makes up for the Mad Max: Fury Road travesty.

So you're watching all five today? I've never done that.

Yes, a first for me.

Sorry folks!  I realized too late that I created this topic in the wrong forum.  Could one of the Moderators please do the honors and move it?  Thank you.

Thank you, KC.  Sorry to be a bother, but could you or someone please remove the duplicate Magnum Force image/post?

Great image from Dirty Harry, from early on in the film during a botched bank robbery, the "Do I feel lucky? Well do ya, punk?" scene.

I hereby declare today Dirty Harry Day.  No rhyme or reason.  Just because.  The opportunity is here to have a Dirty Harry marathon and I'm taking it.  I won't be glued to the screen from beginning to end and will be taking a break to run errands.  Feels great to enjoy these all over again.

I'll be posting random thoughts and images throughout.  Feel free to join in at any time.  I hope everybody is having a fantastic weekend!  I know I am! 😀

It’s almost hard to believe twenty years have passed since the release of these two films.  I still enjoy Absolute Power as much as I’d first seen it.  I read the book before seeing the movie and was very curious to see how it would play out on the big screen.  I was relieved that Luther wasn’t killed off, as he’d been in the novel.  Unlike many of his contemporaries from the 1960’s and 70’s, Eastwood was continuing to show throughout the 1990’s he was more than just an action and/or western movie star.
 
For the third time in as many decades, Eastwood directed a film without starring in it.  Not my preference.  This was another book I read before seeing the movie, which probably helped as far as the film’s entertainment value for me was concerned.  Like Absolute Power this movie had a strong cast, even stronger, but the downfall for me is the absence of Mr. Eastwood on screen.  Still, a film made well and a first for me as I’d not yet seen Breezy or Bird at the time of this movie’s release.
 
This double-feature anniversary is pivotal in that it marks a major change in Eastwood’s movie career.  The 90’s would mark the last decade Clint Eastwood’s appearances on film would outnumber his directorial-only efforts.  Since 2000, the films he’s directed without appearing in them have outnumbered his on screen appearances two to one.  Eastwood has released six movies since 2010, only appearing in one.  I grew up during a time where there was an Eastwood starring film released almost every year, sometimes two of them.  Sadly, those days are gone but I am thankful and I grateful for what’s been left behind... and still holding out hope.

General Discussion / The Gauntlet 40th Anniversary
« on: May 05, 2017, 01:25:39 PM »


The Gauntlet is one of a handful of movies that my friend Mike introduced me to.  At the time we watched it together, probably the late 70’s on network television on his living room tv, I remember his commentary throughout, prepping me for the best scenes.  There’s a handful of familiar faces here, from past and future Eastwood projects.  Pat Hingle had worked with Clint nine years earlier in Hang ‘Em High and would return in Sudden Impact.  Also a future alumni from the fourth Dirty Harry film is Sondra Locke, returning from her worst performance in The Outlaw Josey Wales to a much better one here.  Malley is probably her best Eastwood related movie role.  The banter between her and Shockley is entertaining and convincing, her falling in love with him isn’t.  One of the better scenes is when they hijack a constable’s car, played by Bill McKinney.  He tries to get her to talk about her profession and her reply drives him batty.  This movie is as good as any action film from the same era.  It’s not a favorite but Clint is in it so that’s reason enough to revisit once in a while.
