Eastwood News / Re: Clint Eastwood: Western Icon Collection in May
« on: January 30, 2007, 02:35:44 PM »
I think this is the first time High Plains Drifter and Joe Kidd have been made available in 16:9 Anamorphic versions on region 1 DVD.
A bit late in the day now as I traded my old R1 editions on ebay and replaced them with the R2 discs.
Shame there are no extra features on this new set. A wasted opportunity.

Eastwood News / Movie Icons - New Clint Eastwood Photo Book
« on: October 22, 2006, 09:26:10 AM »
Hi all, just found details for a new book due in November published by Taschen called Eastwood: Movie Icons (ISBN: 3822820040).

http://www.taschen.com/pages/en/catalogue/books/film/all/facts/03986.htm

The book looks very nice and is 192 pages packed with photos.
It's available at a bargain price, £4.99 HMV, £5.37 amazon.
I'll be snapping this one up.

 :)



Synopsis:
Having starred in 44 films and directed 27, Clint Eastwood is a living legend. This book traces the evolution of his star persona from the mysterious gunslingers he played in such Westerns as the "Dollars Trilogy", "High Plains Drifter", "Pale Rider", and "Unforgiven", to the rogue cops and other troubled macho heroes he brought to life in the "Dirty Harry" films, "The Gauntlet", "Tightrope", "Heartbreak Ridge", and "In the Line of Fire". Along the way, Eastwood has also surprised his fans by taking uncharacteristic roles in comedies ("Every Which Way But Loose"), adventure films ("White Hunter, Black Heart"), and romantic movies ("The Bridges of Madison County"). In addition, no book on Eastwood would be complete without a look at some of the most acclaimed films he has directed, including "Bird", "Mystic River", "Million Dollar Baby", and "Flags of Our Fathers". "The Hollywood Icon" series: People talk about Hollywood glamour, about studios that had more stars than there are in heaven, about actors who weren't actors but were icons. Other people talk about these things, Taschen shows you. "Hollywood Icons" is a series of photo books that feature the most famous movie icons in the history of cinema. These 192-page books are visual biographies of the stars. For each title, series editor Paul Duncan has painstaking selected approximately 150 high quality enigmatic and sumptuous portraits, colorful posters and lobby cards, rare film stills, and previously unpublished candid photos showing the stars as they really are. These images are accompanied by concise introductory essays by leading film writers; each book also includes a chronology, a filmography, and a bibliography, and is peppered with apposite quotes from the movies and from life.

So wonder what issue 51 is then???

When I got issue 49 way back in April/May on the back cover it said "Coming In Your Last Issue" (50) Never Say Goodbye.

There are also the two special issues which aren't numbered.

*Piano Blues
*The Man From Malpaso

I could not see those two specials in the picture on ebay.

Hello Mary,

Yes Deagostini are terrible.
I will phone them again next week regarding issue 50. If they give me anymore rubbish then I'll just tell them to stick the subscription and I'll just have to get it from ebay instead.

Sudden Impact is already in production Lea

Great stuff.  :)

Maybe Aleph could release more Jerry Fielding scores, The Outlaw Josey Wales is way overdue a CD release.

Has anyone received issue 50, Never Say Goodbye yet?

It was promised way back in May and I have still not received it.
When I phone the Deagostini help line I get a bunch of idiots who don't speak proper English, and can't understand a word they say.
I think they were trying to say that they are out of stock, and something about there being 51 issues, and not 50.

Is anyone else here subscribed to the Classic Clint Eastwood Collection?
Please let me know if you have issue 50 yet.

Funny thing though, I have seen issue 50 with Never Say Goodbye listed on ebay over a month ago.
So it has definitely been released.
I think as a subsciber I should have received this by now.
Deagostini are messing me around.

Excellent news.

I can't wait for the next in the series, Sudden Impact and The Dead Pool, although they seem to be releasing only one per year.
So, have to wait till 2007, 2008 for the other two I guess.

Off-Topic Discussion / Don't Buy From DVD Soon
« on: July 28, 2006, 01:18:29 PM »
Hi all, just thought I should warn you guys not to buy from www.DVDsoon.com

Check this link below to find out more.

http://ansuz.sooke.bc.ca/creative/reviews/dvdsoon-arc1.php

I have already been stung by these crooks (about £80 UK pounds) when I purchased from their site back in May.

Don't be tempted to buy any Eastwood DVDs (or any DVDS) from these guys, they take your money and never send the goods, and they never reply to emails.

If anyone else here have had any bad experiences from this company, I'd like to hear about it.

Dirty Harry comes to high definition

We have it on very good authority this morning that Clint Eastwood’s cult thriller Dirty Harry is coming to HD-DVD soon. Though we have not been able to obtain a specific release date, expect to find the special features from the 2001 30th Anniversary Edition DVD on the release, such as the documentaries “Dirty Harry: The Original” and “Dirty Harry’s Way” and the interview gallery. Of course we will keep you informed with all the juicy details as they become available.

Tightrope

The scene when Wes Block's youngest daughter Peggy asks out of the blue....

Peggy: "what's a hard-on Daddy?"

Wes and his oldest daughter Amanda can't help but spit out their drinks all over the dashboard.

Peggy: " I heard Amanda say It and she won't tell me what it means".

Wes Block: "Well, darling... It's when a man is attracted to a woman he likes her. Understand?"

Peggy: "No"

Wes Block: "Well he likes her in a certain way."

Peggy: "Why?"

Wes Block: "Well, sweetheart, male bears like female bears... and male bees like female bees.
And occasionally they get together and...

Amanda: "Dad?.... forget it"

 ;D

Cool!

Thanks for the link.

The trailer looks and sounds great.
I can't wait to see how the actual gameplay looks.

I guess now I have to start saving for an XBOX 360.

<<< I think I'll wait till there's a victor in the format war! >>>

Me too.

And I think I'll wait even longer until the prices of HD TVs come down before I replace my existing set-up.

Hmmm, I'm not over the moon though at the prospect of having to fork out all over again for Clint's back catalogue if more and more titles are released in the new format.

Just found this early review for the HD-DVD edition of Unforgiven.
The extras are the same as the previous 2-disc edition.

Sounds good. Now I'm tempted to buy a HD set-up, but I think I'll wait a couple more years yet.

I'm looking forward to the Dirty Harry Video Game coming out next year.  O0
But yet another reason for Warner to re-release the movies and squeeze more money from the fans just like MGM are now doing with the James Bond Ultimate Editions DVDs.
Only 2 or 3 years down the line and these versions will end up redundant to make way for yet another new editions. It will never end.  :(

Sudden Impact.

The scene when Meathead (Dirty Harry's dog) turns around and farts at Clint just moments after the first meeting with Sondra Locke's character.
That scene always makes me laugh out loud.  ;D

Ref/ Snakebite scene.

I've just been wondering what Clint himself thought of this scene and what his view is towards animal cruelty.
I'm surprised he let it be shot in the first place.

I'm sure I read somewhere in one of my many Eastwood books that he is loving and caring towards all kinds of creatures great and small???

Regarding the movie, is it possible the Snake may of had it's venon or fangs removed and that the mongoose survived?
Just a thought.

Love her or hate her.
There must be at least one Eastwood film in which you thought Sondra Locke was pretty good in it.

For me it's The Gauntlet. Not just my favourite with Sondra Locke but also probably my most favourite of all Eastwood films.
It certainly gives me the most enjoyment with regular repeated viewings.

So what's your favourite of the six movies Clint and Sondra Locke appeared in together?  :)

Hi all,

I just got my copy of Any Which Way You Can arrive (issue 48 of Classic CE Collection).

I can also confirm that the UK version indeed appears UNCUT.
I have just compared the "snakebite" scene on both the region 1 and region 2 DVDs side-by-side and I did not notice a single trim made to the UK version during this very unpleasant sequence.

hhmmm???
I wonder what is going on here???

From the BBFC website:
<<< When submitted to the BBFC the work had a running time of 110m 53s.

To obtain this category cuts of 0m 28s were required. The cuts were Compulsory.
Cut required to remove sight of real animal cruelty (in this case a mongoose and a snake are made to fight) in accordance with the BBFC Guidelines and Policy. >>>

I just ordered my copy from play.com (USA).
It was only £17.99 with FREE delivery.
That works out even cheaper than amazon.com
