Off-Topic Discussion / Re: What was the last western you watched?

The Shootist (1976)

I never tire of this film. One of The Duke's greatest.  I would love to see Ron Howard direct Clint in one more western.  Not too late. Nope.

Hey that's a good thought. I would love to see Ron Howard and Clint work together. And a western movie. Ron is a very very good director and TV legend. Would be cool I think.

Thanks SK and KC. I actually should have just sent KC a pm about this instead of posting on the board. Because your a librarian plus a baseball fan. But I thought we had more baseball fans on here than I thought. I love reading autobiographies and reliable accurate biography books on famous people like actors actresses athletes etc. I own several books on players like Mickey mantle joe DiMaggio Willie mays hank Aaron Ted Williams. I would like to read that book on Koufax. As he was probably the greatest lefty ever. But I own all these books and after watching the movie the babe I realized I need to buy and read a biography on Ruth. The greatest of them all. His story I think is very interesting. I know the basics of how he made it big. But I would like to read more in depth about him.

Weird. Cause I just got thru watching the three karate kid movies over this past week. And I watched karate kid 3 last night. I remember seeing his name on the screen as the director. I remember saying to myself that's guy who also directed rocky. Rocky is my favorite movie. And karate kid 1 is my fourth favorite movie behind rocky, Unforgiven, and the natural. I talked with my brother just last night about rocky and the karate kid being my two favorite movie series. I'm a huge fan of all the rocky movies. And a huge fan of the three karate kid movies. The last one with swank didn't do it for me but there were some funny parts in that one. Very sad news.

I think that is the best way to watch the Dirty Harry series all in one day. I'm a big fan of having marathons of my favorite movie series such as Dirty Harry, Rambo, rocky, Indiana jones, etc.  I've even had an Eastwood marathon before. Where I pick out like 4 or 5 Eastwood movies and I watch all of them in one day. Like various Eastwood movies. Like maybe watching gran Torino, thunderbolt and light foot, the gauntlet, true crime, in the line of fire all in one day. What I usually do is on one of my days off I just stay inside all day long watching marathons of these movies. I don't step outside at all. Strictly inside all day long. I get my food to eat the day before so I can stay in all day. I do this every once in awhile. It's nice taking a break from the outside world. Gets your mind off your troubles and stressful things. It's something I enjoy doing and it's a lot of fun. I do take at least a 15 min or so break in between movies. I usually start around 2 or 3 in the afternoon and go past midnight. Great fun!

Which biography book is the best and most accurate account of Babe Ruth's life?  I watched The Babe a few nights ago the one starring John goodman as Ruth. Hadn't seen it in a long time. Babe Ruth is considered by many to be the best player ever. Can't argue that, but players like willie mays and Mickey mantle are right up there too. I firmly believe that Babe Ruth would be a great great player even in today's game. But he would have to take better care of himself. Less alcohol, better diet, and being physically fit would be required for him to be successful in today's game especially longevity wise. He was that good of a player.  The Babe Ruth story is very interesting and I am wanting to read a great biography on him. But I want it to be the most accurate one possible. I know that there will always be some mystery about Ruth. Like whether or not he called his shot. How he met his first wife etc. There will always be some inaccuracies. But I'm looking for the most accurate book out there.

That's a cool three pack of movies Christopher. I've also seen silent rage and I liked it a lot too. I'm a fan of chuck Norris. Many people say Norris and Stallone are horrible actors. But I really enjoy there movies a lot.  I like the way they act in movies so I guess that's all that matters.  But I'm a huge fan of both of them. 

Yeah Gant I love watching Kelly's heroes a lot too. Just flat out very fun movie to watch. Great all star cast.

Hey Richard Earl. Funny you said that. I thought about that very same thing a few weeks ago while I was watching all in the family. There arguments are at times annoying and bothersome. I'm sure that wasn't good for there health even though there acting. But besides the loud arguments I do like the characters a lot and the funny parts are great too. But yeah your right it can be a little annoying and disturbing when there arguing.

Hi Richard Earl,  Fellow Texas Rangers fan. We should have won at least one World Series. We were one strike away not once but twice. We really need Nap and Lucroy to play up to there level. I think will be alright we've got too much talent. I think the Astros will be tough this yr.

Very happy to hear that Clint didn't retire. I'll take anything he does acting or directing.

I'm just glad y'all aren't in the Rangers division. We're not playing very well right now. 😅

Yeah. Thanks Aline for the response. Your right sometimes even the healthiest people get ill sometimes. For me I play the percentages. I am pretty much a vegetarian except I eat salmon twice a week. I pretty much eat like a rabbit lots of fruits and veggies.  I excercise running biking weight lifting five days a week. I usually take two days off. But on one of those days off I sometimes take a walk in the park. My weight is normal and I don't smoke. I eat one sweet item per week and one soft drink per week. And I do breathing relaxation techniques twice a day.  I am defenately still capable of getting cancer or heart trouble. But doing all this reduces my odds of getting that. And if I do I feel like I have a better chance for a full recovery. So for me it's about the odds and percentages.  Based on my research. My current lifestyle choices and my family history I have roughly a 10 percent chance of getting most cancers and or heart disease. I like those odds. Clint is defenately my inspiration. I have been on this healthy routine now for over 3 yrs. I honestly have adapted very well. I don't ever feel deprived. I do occasionally sway away for like one meal but next meal I'm right back to eating healthy food again. But I don't eat steak beef or any other meat except for fish. My cheat meals are the occasional French fries or a small veggie thin crust pizza. And sometimes an auntie Anne pretzel.

General Discussion / Clint's great health
« on: April 14, 2017, 02:34:42 AM »
I just finished watching trouble with the curve. Which I have really enjoyed watching over the past 5 yrs. Its amazing to me how well Clint did in this movie considering he was 81 yrs old at the time. Not only that but he directed a great movie in sully this past year too. I haven't heard of any major illnesses with Clint at least that weren't made public. The man appears to be very healthy and looks healthy too. If I'm lucky enough to live that old I hope I'm as in great a shape as he is. He is a great role model for health and longevity. He obviously takes great care of himself still at the age of 86. I'm so proud that he's my favorite actor and such a great person and role model for good health.

Still nothing?  Very weird. Usually Clint is on something by now. Wonder if he's retired.
