Sorry I'm a little late posting this discussion thread for Marnie. With The Mule premiering, I temporarily forgot about the Hitchcock films we've been watching.  This is our 2nd bonus film, so if you wanted to give this one a watch, post your thoughts here.

The Mule will be released in the U.S. December 14th. The Mods have noticed quite a bit of interest in speculating on what the opening weekend box office will be in the News thread, so we thought it would be a new fun way to discuss it in its own thread if we added a little gambling excitement to it!  Introducing THE MULE OPENING WEEKEND BOX OFFICE POOL! 

We'll play this "The Price Is Right" style!  The member who posts closest to the actual box office (as reported at Box Office Mojowithout going over will win the pool, and a prize!

If you have no interest in speculating what the Opening Weekend Box Office will be, that's fine, but what the heck, you can't win if you don't play -- and we're talking about a seriously awesome Clint Eastwood prize.  While it would be really cool to arrange a meet and greet with The Man himself, we wanted something even more awesome... that you could keep, frame, and have with you forever.   So instead, we're thinking a paperbook novel based on one of his movies, or a True Crime lobby card, or a 33 1/3 vinyl album soundtrack of HANG 'EM HIGH. I mean, yeah, we're talking BIG PRIZES!  ;)

But more than anything, you'll have something to brag about around the Christmas table when all your family comes to visit and wants to be filled in on what you've been up to for the last 12 months of your life.  Don't hold back -- tell them in all your glory about how you WON THE MULE OPENING WEEKEND BOX OFFICE POOL!

So Clint Eastwood Forum members.... COME ON DOWN!  Post YOUR BEST GUESS at what the Opening Weekend Box Office will be for The Mule here!

The Bonus Film is on there because I really wanted to see it, and no one nominated it! One of the perks of organizing these Movie Club themes.  ;D 

I maneuvered it to make sure we watched Psycho on Halloween week!  O0

Be sure to secure your films in advance so you can participate in each week's film. We'll have a discussion thread for each week.

Off-Topic Discussion / Non-Eastwood Trivia
« on: July 04, 2017, 08:20:05 AM »
I was at trivia last night,  and you could see some people using their phones. So all the competitive spirit was drained from the night. So, don't use it here either. As with the Eastwood trivia threads on the board, if you answer one, post one. It can be any type of trivia question, but since we have a very slow board, if no one answers in a couple of days, feel free to post the answer and another question. And if you're not sure of the answer, it's fine to take a stab at it anyway. You won't lose points if you get the answer wrong 'cause no one's keeping score here.

So for the 4th of July, one of the questions we had last night was this:  Although three U.S. presidents have died on the 4th of July, name the only U.S. president born on the 4th of July. Hint - he was born July 4th, 1872.  Also, if you can name any of the U.S. presidents who died on the 4th of July, go ahead and name them for bonus points (that don't matter).

Is anyone else concerned about how BIG Amazon is getting? I heard the news this weekend that they purchased Whole Foods, and alarms went off in my head. This article expresses my concerns better than I can:

Off-Topic Discussion / Songs that strike a chord
« on: April 24, 2017, 09:36:18 AM »
Little bit of a pun there in the title. ;)

This one always gets to me... 

<a href="https://www.youtube.com/v/1umEXpGHc0E" target="_blank" class="new_win">https://www.youtube.com/v/1umEXpGHc0E</a>

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1umEXpGHc0E

It's such a sad song about how little we know when we're young, and the mistakes we make... and that some just don't even make it through those years at all. I love 90s music. It was such a dark period -- unlike the pop-sy syntho sounds of the 80's, we're now diving into more melancholic lyrics and sounds and sometimes even the grungiest hardest songs have the most poignant lyrics. 

Add the ones that get to you here...

This is the place to post about Yojimbo(1961) and compare it to A Fistful of Dollars, and the Bruce Willis remake Last Man Standing

Thanks to Elizabeth for recommending these films for this round.  :)
