Happy birthday, Gant! Hope it's been a great one!



(I looked up posters for this movie because I believe it's one you liked a lot--I haven't seen it, but this definitely intrigues me! :o ;D)

Eastwood News / Michael Cimino, R.I.P.
« on: July 02, 2016, 03:42:43 PM »
Thunderbolt and Lightfoot director Michael Cimino has reportedly died at the age of 77.

http://www.rollingstone.com/movies/news/michael-cimino-the-deer-hunter-director-dead-at-77-20160702#ixzz4DI9QsvbD

The report linked above mentions that a representative didn't confirm or deny that Cimino had died, which seems strange. Here's the section about his work with Eastwood's films:

Quote
After beginning his career in art and advertising, the New York-born Cimino moved quickly into screenwriting in the early Seventies, co-writing the sci-fi epic Silent Running and the Dirty Harry sequel Magnum Force.

The success of those films allowed Cimino to step behind the camera for this debut feature Thunderbolt & Lightfoot, starring Clint Eastwood and Jeff Bridges. The film became a hit at the box office and provided Cimino an opportunity to have his pick for his next project. He chose the ambitious Vietnam War drama The Deer Hunter.

Eastwood News / George Kennedy 1925-2016
« on: February 29, 2016, 02:58:23 PM »
George Kennedy has died at 91 years old. I'm including this in the Eastwood news section, of course, because Kennedy costarred in The Eiger Sanction and Thunderbolt and Lightfoot (which I've always felt to be the meanest character I ever saw him play).

Eastwood News / Actor Geoffrey Lewis has died at 79
« on: April 08, 2015, 06:18:49 AM »
Sad news to see this morning that Geoffrey Lewis has died at the age of 79. He was so great in High Plains Drifter, Thunderbolt and Lightfoot, and the Which Way movies.

Off-Topic Discussion / Favorite Holiday movies
« on: December 14, 2013, 03:15:54 PM »
It seems like this sort of discussion has come up on the board before, but I don't know if there's a thread for it.

I was wondering what your favorite holiday movies are. Do you have movies that you try to watch every year at this time? I often like watching various versions of A Christmas Carol every year (though I'm not sure I did last year, and haven't watched any this year... yet). My favorite versions are the musical version from the early '70s, and then 1951's Scrooge, The Muppet Christmas Carol, and then Scrooged.

I did watch National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation earlier this week, which is one I catch sometimes during the Christmas season.

For something a little less traditional, I've been thinking that another Gremlins viewing is in order. O0

I also really love the Christmas episode of The Andy Griffith Show. It's really my favorite Christmas episode from any TV show. The episode is simply called "Christmas Story" and is from the first season.

In this week's Double Issue of Entertainment Weekly (for July 5th and 12th), they give a list of the 100 best movies. Dirty Harry is the only Eastwood title on the list, and it comes in at number 85. Here's what it says about the film:

Quote
Clint Eastwood gives a mythic performance as a lean, mean police enforcer out to wipe the streets of San Francisco clean of "scum" in this furious, drum-tight urban Western. It's the single greatest expression of Eastwood's populist fury.

Here's the cover:


(I wasn't sure if there was a thread for this type of rankings...)

Eastwood News / National Film Registry adds Dirty Harry
« on: December 19, 2012, 09:06:21 AM »
I don't know if this should be posted elsewhere, but I just saw that Dirty Harry was amongst the 25 films added to the National Film Registry this year.

Questions & Answers / Bird two-disc DVD
« on: July 24, 2012, 02:43:44 PM »
I was looking up Bird on DVD to check prices and saw that there's a 2-disc version of it. Does anybody have it? What special features are on it? I can't seem to find that information.

Off-Topic Discussion / 2012 Movie Discussion
« on: December 19, 2011, 04:55:23 PM »
These movie discussion threads usually aren't started until the new year begins, but I thought I might get this one started just a little early.

I just watched the trailer for The Dark Knight Rises, which is obviously a very anticipated 2012 release. Here's the trailer on youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9R6zD8VcQTQ&feature=player_embedded

I think it looks good!

So, anyhow, here is the thread we can use to discuss the 2012 movies we're looking forward to or have seen. Another release I'm looking forward to is The Three Stooges. I'm glad that the Farrelly brothers are behind it--it gives me hope that the film will be fun and in the same spirit as the original shorts. I've gotten the feeling that a lot of people don't like the idea of this movie, but I'd rather have this than some biopic about the drama of the actors' lives.

Any other 2012 releases you're looking forward to?

Collectors' Corner / Eastwood Movie Deals
« on: June 03, 2011, 08:11:48 PM »
A lot of Eastwood DVDs or Blu-Rays are inexpensive these days, but here's a thread where we can give people a heads-up about any particularly nice sounding sales various stores or sites might have. And of course we can post what region the site is for so shoppers in the right part of the world can take a look.

One place I enjoy shopping for DVDs is www.deepdiscount.com. I was browsing and came across a sale for Eastwood collections: http://www.deepdiscount.com/Clint-Eastwood-Collections-on-Sale. Deep Discount is Region 1 and the sale goes until July 8, 2011.

I find the Dirty Harry Collection Blu-Ray tempting.

And of course shop around to see if you might be able to find a better deal for any of these sets, if you're looking for one.

I was quite surprised to see this headline:

EXCLUSIVE: Clint Eastwood To Direct Beyoncé In Musical Of 'A Star Is Born'

This is a real shocker, and not just Hollywood but the rest of America should love it. What a coup for Warner Bros getting The Man. Of course, Clint Eastwood will produce (as always through Malpaso) as well as direct the script by Will Fetters along with producers Billy Gerber and and Basil Iwanyk and Jon Peters (who made the infamous 3rd version of A Star Is Born with Barbra Streisand and Kris Kristofferson). No male lead is cast yet, but the possibilities are endless. The project, which has been at WB for several years, had hoped to pair Beyoncé and Will Smith. But how about P Diddy (who's turning into a surprisingly fine actor along with Beyoncé's husband Jayz), Eddie Murphy (reteaming with Beyoncé after Dreamgirls), or any white guy imaginable though Robert Downey Jr and Jon Hamm are names that have been floating?

I'm a little skeptical at this point, but I guess we'll just have to wait and see.

Off-Topic Discussion / 2011 Movie Discussion

Here's our annual thread for 2011 movie discussions! What are some movies you all are looking forward to this year? And of course as you watch them, you can post your non spoiler thoughts here (unless, of course, you give spoiler warnings).

Off the top of my head, there's not a lot that I'm aware of for this year. I do want to see the remake of The Mechanic set to come out January 28 in the US.

Off-Topic Discussion / 2010 Movie Discussion
« on: January 05, 2010, 04:34:02 PM »
Here is, once again, the thread for all of us to put our thoughts for this year's movie releases.

A movie I've been really anticipating for this year is Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland. When I first heard about him directing it and Depp playing the Mad Hatter, I got a little excited. The book is very weird, which makes it a good fit for Burton! ;)



Opening Friday is Daybreakers, which I think looks like it could be good. Apparently a vampire plague has hit, turning almost everyone into vampires. People who haven't been are being caught and farmed for their blood. The previews look a bit freaky! :o
