I just watched A Fistful of Dollars and For A Few Dollars More.

The line: "You see, my mule don't like people laughing..." always gets me.

I haven't been around here in years...

Some people may remember me. I'm still a huge Clint fan. I joined the board when I was like 14! I've come a long ways since then. I fell off the wagon here after high school. I'll try to pop in more.

Nice to see a lot of the old usernames still here. I have a lot to read and a lot of posts to make up!  :D

Is there any particular reason for the extremely limited release? Why wasn't it promoted it more?

I haven't been around in a while, and I'm back with a question. Recently someone told me about "The Stars Fell on Henrietta". I had never heard of it until now. It only grossed about $100k and had a very limited release. I know Eastwood was only involved in producing, but it had Robert Duvall and It was distributed by WB. Whats the story with this movie?

Thanks for that The Enforcer, looks like it's part of the contents of a goodie bag, which Clint has a reputation for not accepting, saying that, it looks like he's very keen to give it away ;)

If he doesn't want the pen I can just iamgine what he would be saying, if he were in character as Dirty Harry, as to where they could put it!   ;D

Dannyman: What one Eastwood film would you show to a friend of yours if you wanted to make him (or her) a fan? Why would you pick that one?

I think it depends what kind of movie fan they were. Eastwood has a pretty varied body of work. Westerns, Action, Drama, Comedy, Thrillers and the list goes on.

 If they were an action fan I would show them one of the Dirty Harry films, most likely "Magnum Force".

However, if they were more into drama I would choose "Million Dollar Baby"

For western fans I would choose "For A Few Dollars More".

But if I could only choose one of Eastwood films I would choose "Unforgiven". It really has a little bit of everything. It's probabaly my favorite Eastwood film. 

masterchief: Which is your favorite chracter Eastwood has portrayed?

Jaffe: Who has been your favorite Eastwood co-star?

Fight Club (2 Disc SE) - Very good movie. At first I thought it would be a mindless action film because of the fighting, but it tuned out to be a very thought provoking film.

I think I have to watch it one more time to fully appreciate it.

Night and Fog (Criterion Collection) - Documentary about the Holocaust. It includes real footage of the camps as they were, prisoners, and some very disturbing images of corpses - severed heads - cremated bodies... :o

All right, the presenters for Makeup are pretty funny! 

Will Ferrel had the 'George Hamilton look'.

Has Eastwood appeared yet?

I hope I didn't sound like I didn't like it, because I really did. I picked it up because I really loved the Naked Gun films. The Abrams' brohters, Zucker, and Nielsen make a fantastic comedy team!

"Looks like I picked the wrong week to quit drinking."
"Looks like I picked the wrong week to stop sniffing glue."
"Looks like I picked the wrong week to quit amphetamines."

"I am serious... and don't call me Shirley. "  ;D

I also really loved Jonny in the film, remember him? He had a bunch of spntaneous lines that really made me laugh.

Steve McCroskey: This fog is getting thicker.
Johnny: And Leon is getting laaaaarrrrrger.

[reading newspaper headlines]
Rex Kramer: Passengers certain to die!
Steve McCroskey: Airline negligent.
Johnny: There's a sale at Penny's!   ;D

(Describing the airplane to reporters): "It looks like a giant Tylenol!"

I decided to use some days from my Holiday break to watch some Classics, that I hadn't watched :o...I have no exucse for taking so long.

I was kind of busy this week....

Once Upon A Time In The West
Once Upon A Tiime in America
The Godfather
Sunset Blvd.
King Kong (2005)

They were all fantastic films, except Airplane. I wasn't expecting much, it is just a silly comedy, but it's a good comedy. I have some Stanley Kubrick movies lined up that I'm going to watch within the next month, or so.

I just found this news article. Eastwood and Tarantino will appear in a Documentary about Budd Boetticher.

Saturday December 17, 01:35 PM


Eastwood + Tarantino share the screen for Boetticher documentary
Click to enlarge photo

Clint Eastwood and Quentin Tarantino have joined forces to pay tribute to their silver screen hero Budd Boetticher in a new US TV documentary about the B-movie western director.

The pair discovered a joint interest in the 1950s movie icon and jumped at the chance to sit down together for the upcoming special Budd Boetticher: A Man Can Do That.

But Eastwood admits it was tougher than expected talking with the excitable film-maker.

He says, "The producers had me there to get Quentin started, and believe me, it doesn't take much.

"Quentin's interesting; he's followed lots of directors he never knew."

In the documentary, Tarantino reveals Michael Madsen's Budd character in the Kill Bill films was an homage to Boetticher.

For a little Comic relief...

The Naked Gun DVD Set:

and "Curb Your Enthusiasm" Seasons 1-3. I'm going to buy the fourth season soon...


EDIT: I just wanted to add a quote from The Naked Gun which is a parody of the scene from the Mayor's office in 'Dirty Harry"

Mayor: Now Drebin, I don't want any trouble like you had on the South Side like last year, that's my policy.

Frank: Well, when I see five weirdos dressed in togas, stabbing a man in the middle of the park in front of a full view of 100 people, I shoot the bastards, that's my policy.

Mayor: That was a Shakesphere In The Park Production of Julius Caesar, you moron! You killed five actors! Good ones!
