Off-Topic Discussion / Re: Your top 5 singers
« on: March 29, 2018, 06:20:59 AM »
I have a list of top 5 singers, but I wouldnít describe them as having a major impact on my life as much as leaving a major and lasting impression.  While there are many great vocalists and bands out there I admire, regardless of their writing ability, none have affected my life in a major way with respect to my personality and outlook on life.  The basis of those were formed by the time I was 8 years old.  Iím not sure where Iíve learned it or from whom, but variety truly is the spice of life.  I reckon part of the answer to that lies in learning it over the course of time.   

With that being said, I can more closely answer the question by genre. 

Rock & Roll
Country
Rhythm & Blues
Classical
Jazz (light only)

For decades, since the summer of 1977, I have been drawn to rock music.  Whenever the opportunity presents itself, rock & roll is what I listen to while driving, doing manual labor, exercising and/or just for the pleasure.  I do enjoy the other four genres I listed very much and thatís the joy of variety.

Very good.  Worthy remake of the original.  By no means better.  But enjoyable, unlike Last Man Standing.

Jed don't worry about offending anyone who might have liked it. Everybody has there opinion and that's what this site is about. Expressing your thoughts and feelings on various Eastwood films. This film is not entertaining and won't get any nominations. I didn't go to the theatre expecting to be overly entertained. I went to see a film that Clint directed and to see the real heroes play themselves. And to see there story and how they saved all those passengers on that train. I personally enjoyed it. I enjoyed there journey they went thru that prepared them for that day. Again it's not an extremely entertaining movie and not a masterpiece. But I thought it was interesting. Just my opinion only.




Thank you.  I appreciate that.  Itís just sad that I no longer look forward to his new projects because he doesnít star in them.  Well, such is life.  All good things come to an end.  Or do they?  Thereís the possibility of his starring in ďThe MuleĒ, which pleases me to no end.  When my kids are old enough, Iíll be curious to know their opinion on the movies heís starred in.  That will, possibly, be a new experience.  They may not be interested and thatís okay.  If they are, it could be fun.

Oh, itís never too late.  I do it out of respect, regardless of onesí religious beliefs.  My mom was a staunch atheist as well.  That didnít, and doesnít, stop me from asking for Godís blessing of her and to ask that she Rest In Peace.

Maybe Iím getting superhero movie burnout.  I wasnít planning on seeing this on the big screen.  I figured Iíd just skip it and catch it later on cable or disc.  I was making plans to see The 15:17 To Paris and before I knew it, was caught up in committing to seeing this on IMAX.

Iím glad I did.  I thought the story was very good and it  held my interest.  Once again, Marvel hits one out of the park with a very entertaining film.

Boring.   Not as painful as sitting through Star Trek: The Motion Picture, but close.

I saw this last night with an uncle and a friend. 

The best, most descriptive adjective that comes to mind is bland.  For the most part, the viewing experience was akin to watching a boring promotional tourism video for Amsterdam, Venice and Germany.   

For the life of me, as I sit here writing, I am trying to find something, anything positive to say about this film.  Iím cognizant of the strong possibility of offending others that enjoyed it.  Iíve been down that road before by stating to me, any movie he directs without starring in, is not a true Clint Eastwood movie.  While my opinion has remained unchanged in that regard, seeing J. Edgar in 2011 changed my decision to discontinue seeing his movies that he only directs.  In the interim, it was great seeing him appear on screen again in Trouble With The Curve and Iím hoping ďThe MuleĒ will become a reality. 

The 15:17 To Paris shakes my faith a little, but not much.  I have learned to have no expectations whatsoever when it comes to Eastwood directed,  non-starring movies and will continue to go out of my way to see them on the big screen as long as he makes them.

The acting by the three main characters came across as believable.  Having the real life heroes portray themselves added a good sense of realism that may not have come across with seasoned actors. 

I enjoyed learning about how the events unfolded that day on the train in this format.  As with Sully, I initially learned of the news like many others, via media coverage.  Iíd say Mr. Eastwood definitely has a knack, a talent even, for re-telling these stories without sensationalizing them. 

I remember Clint once saying that heíd continue making movies as long as there were stories to tell.  God Bless you, sir.  Keep Ďem coming!
