                  AKA, my reasons for Eastwood's failure @ the box office lately is exactly what you expound on. You are 100% right on.  It's certainly not because I think Eastwood is in a full throttle demise or the fact his movies have been horrid. (Though I absolutely hated The Hereafter and still think it's one of his biggest mistakes) . On the contrary, I still think he has much to contribute and like yourself I hope The Mule is a bona fide hit. But @ the same time as much as I don't count him out I certainly realize the man is 88 and I don't expect 'White Hunter Black Heart' or 'Thunderbolt and Lightfoot' anymore. It's just not logical, but you have people still waiting for him to do another Dirty Harry which is beyond even reacting to. It's moronic. As far as the political aspects. Hollywood has always been political. Hollywood ostracized Eastwood 40-50 years ago and all of a sudden they started to respect the man. I doubt Eastwood ever cared anyway except always to make a good movie that people would see. I don't think that's ever changed. I just think the times and audience has just like you said........ The only thing that hasn't changed is Robert Redford and Costner still can't act.

Best parts of The Enforcer are Eastwood's scenes with Albert Popwell.

        Outside of 'American Sniper' none of Eastwood's movies have been box office hits. His last bona fide box office hit was Gran Torino which he starred in. I do agree that the speech probably didn't hurt Eastwood to the magnitude some may think....You have to take into consideration that Eastwood isn't in his prime anymore and Hollywood has become a panorama of stupidity with the type of movies they maker today and the useless phony rhetoric they try to sell. Hollywood always had their favorites anyway. It's all a bunch of crap..I mean you have to laugh when Hollywood gives George Clooney a 'Lifetime Achievement Award'...For what????...His only achievement is being a puppet.

Redford was always Hollywood's Golden Boy and a truly overrated boring actor. Yeah, ok he was a nice looking guy and he did a nice job directing Ordinary People, but Eastwood don't need him. It it wasn't for Paul Newman, Redford would had been a Forest Ranger in Utah.

 The Longest Yard and Starting Over were good movies that are worthy, but Reynolds really did a magnitude of crappy films. A lot of people liked Sharky's Machine... Reynolds box office appeal plummeted by the mid 80's....City Heat was ridiculous.

       AKA,  If you were going to watch any movie it would probably be Deliverance from 1972. Extremely disturbing and well acted movie about a canoe trip that goes wrong. Great ensemble cast with Jon Voight and Ned Beatty and an unforgettable Bill Mckinney in one of the most scariest roles that still haunts 46 years later.....

               Sorry to hear about Reynolds who certainly had a long time friendship with Eastwood that covered probably 65 years. I always felt that Reynolds career floundered eventually was due to doing too many of those silly movies which in the beginning made him a box office star. I just never thought he challenged himself as an actor enough unlike Eastwood. In the long run though I think Reynolds had a good time all through it and relistically that's what its about in life. I'm not going to judge that... He was a good guy though...

          Yeah, I agree AKA....great singer, but Streisand can't act either and her directing skills are dubious..Part of my problem is I have no interest anymore with 'mainstream' movies today. So in a sense I probably didn't give Adams a fair chance... All it's become is comic books and remakes ( Papillon as an example) and I have no interest. I still feel Eastwood should had put Swank in The Changeling instead of Jolie. That I'm never changing my mind about......

I'm not doubting her acting prowess. I'm just not a big fan of hers.  She's still cute though.....

              AKA...when 'Curve' came out the reviews were lukewarm and I had no interest in it. I really can't expound on Amy Adams. To me she's just another actress on the conveyor belt and will be gone in a few years.

 Actually watched 'Trouble With The Curve' last night for the first time on Netflix. Wasn't a bad movie. Eastwood was fine.  Not a fan of Amy Adams, but man she's cute as hell. John Goodman is always good.  Timberlake acts like his music- mediocre. Hilary Swank please come back........

 You know a movie is bad when Slash looks more interested than Eastwood in the movie.

       I agree on the William Smith impact.

        Hard to believe this was on TCM last week. I can remember sinking in my seat at the movie theatre in 1978 cause I could not believe Eastwood could do a worse movie than 1977's The Gauntlet. At least The Gauntlet had some redeeming points, but even after all these years and the fact it made 100 mill at the box office which is even harder to believe its still a low point for me as far as Eastwood's movie's. The sequel was actually better which isn't saying much.....
