Someone is eaten by a big cat, but it's not Joe Exotic.

I guess it's not for everyone. I love it -- not only because it's outrageous, but it's a good portrait into the personal lives of people involved in something I would never otherwise know anything about.

If we wanted to have a conversation about this series, I would ask if anyone thinks that what Carole Baskin does is really any different than what Joe Exotic does (except that she filed her business as a 501c3 nonprofit and doesn't pay anyone to work there, they are all volunteers).

Chris Cuomo's experience with COVID-19 sounds brutal:

Chipping a tooth from shivering...  :o

Brian (Jed) glad to hear you're staying home now. This isn't anything to play around with.

We probably should move this discussion to the Netflix topic though.  :)

Done.  :)

Some things I see, I wish there were a way to un-see.  :o

The whole series is a $#!tshow.  ;D

What's worse is that I didn't even think it was that bizarre when I first watched it. Chalk it up to living in Florida, and then Tennessee.  It's the memes that are killing me and making me realize it's really as crazy as it is. I'm watching it again and enjoying it even more the second time.

It's great -- you should watch it. The memes are much funnier when you've seen it, too.  ;D

The Stallones dressed as the Tiger King cast.  Extra points to the dog dressed as a tiger, and his wife with the flower headband (like the villainess of the documentary)

We finally have some beautiful weather in middle TN, so the park where I run has been quite crowded, groups of people hovering around the narrow paths like there's no such thing as social distancing. I wish people would take this more seriously. I don't go out for any errands - I'm utilizing food delivery and Amazon/Whole Foods. Tomorrow marks 2 weeks of quarantine.

The number of reported cases in NY is more than alarming. KC, I'm glad to hear that you're doing okay. Keep checking in with us. We're thinking of you.

Things are picking up rapidly in TN. A friend of mine got it and was in the hospital earlier this week, but has been able to go home. She's not giving details of how she's doing, but she has said it is terrible and to take it seriously. I'm actually relieved that my father isn't around for this -- he had asbestosis and was on oxygen, plus he wouldn't survive staying home. He always had to be out at the bars trying to pick up women. He was severely lonely since my mother passed away. I'd be beside myself with worry for him if he was still around.

As for what we're going to keep boredom at bay -- has anyone watched Tiger King yet?

This is a tough game -- way too easy to fall into morbid territory.

Glad everyone is staying in and staying safe. :)

I watched Contagion this week, and it's pretty accurate to what we're dealing with now (though the death rate for those getting the virus there are higher than with COVID-19).

Doug, I really loved The Sopranos -- it's a good long series and should keep you busy for a few weeks!

Maybe we should do a Movie Night to be social while quarantined.

Like KC, I'm still getting out there to run every day -- but I go early now, before most people are out. It's a bit nervewracking even passing someone on the narrow trails. But, it's vital to stay strong and healthy throughout this.

A local business of ours does restaurant delivery, liquor store delivery (wow!) and grocery delivery. I have a big order of Nashville Hot Chicken coming tonight. Grateful to all those in the health field, but even more so to those low-wage workers on the front lines in our grocery and drug stores and the restaurant workers still open for delivery/takeout.

This board is so quiet that we're not even discussing the pandemic and how it's affecting us. Are you and your family members self-quarantining? How's that going? What are you doing to keep busy? Check in and discuss...

We're hunkered down and staying in. The Nashville area has been hit pretty hard so Saturday was the last day I went out to get supplies. Planning on utilizing Amazon and local grocery delivery until things look safe out there... could be a few months (or more - gulp).

The Trials of Gabriel Fernandez - an unbelievably heartbreaking documentary about an extreme case of child abuse and how the system failed him. It's an extremely well made documentary, but the evil shown in this case will not be forgotten, so bear this in mind if you decide to watch.

Hey Speedzoo! Long time, no see. Great to have you back. For anyone who hasn't been around since the dawning of the Clint Eastwood Web Board, Speedzoo is one of our first members, dating back to the last millennium.

This is a very thoughtful post. I'm going to need to mull it over. Just wanted to reach out and say it was great to see you again.  :)

Anyone else watching You? This is a great series! Just ran through the first 2 seasons and it seems the next season isn't due out for a year or so.  :-[

General Discussion / Re: Favorite Clint Eastwood Movies of the 2010s

My clear favorite is The Mule.  I'd put Trouble With The Curve after this, I suppose.

Then it gets muddy -- but at the very bottom of the list is The 15:17 to Paris.

I like Hereafter and Sully more than most do it seems. J. Edgar was okay, but I strongly disliked Jersey Boys.

So, here's probably where I'd rank them (just according to personal preference):

The Mule
Trouble With The Curve
Richard Jewell
American Sniper
J Edgar
Jersey Boys
The 15:17 to Paris

The two films I loved the most last year did well last night at the Golden Globes.

Best Motion Picture -- Musical or Comedy: Once Upon a Time in Hollywood

(Surprised this was put in the Comedy classification, but I'm assuming it was strategic to not lose to Joker)

Which brings up the fact that Joker didn't win for Best Motion Picture Drama. Instead, 1917 won. I haven't seen that one, but I did see They Shall Not Grow Old, and don't feel like watching another WWI film anytime soon. Has anyone here seen it?

Quentin Tarantino won for best Screenplay for Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.

Brad Pitt won for Best Actor in a Supporting Role for Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. I was wondering if he'd be nominated as a supporting actor, and hoped he would, since Joaquin Phoenix had a lock on it with his performance in Joker (and he did win the Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Motion Picture- Drama)

Any other thoughts of the winners/losers?  Here's the list:

There are no words for what's going on over there. Is the area you live still safe, SK?

I, too, try to get out more and do more things with real people than staying in and watching TV/movies. I think when you get older, you start thinking about what time you have left, and how you want to spend it. I posted here recently about my father passing away in November, and he was about thirty years older than me. So it's easy to be hit in the face with the fact that I have only about thirty more years, and how many of them will be good ones? I forced myself out of my comfort zone to do the New Year's Eve bash in Nashville instead of staying in. I've been trying to spend less time online, less time discussing politics and films online, and more time out in the world discussing with real people. It's not the easy or lazy way to go through a day, especially if you consider yourself an introvert (which I am, but you may not think so). But, life is really short. The more time we spend out in the world doing what we love, with people we love, the better.
