« on: September 06, 2004, 01:15:58 PM »
I got a brillaint deal for this. 25p, 0.25, however you want to put it. I was browsing my local Car Boot Sale, and saw this. For 25p I couldn't argue.



I also got 'The Return of Josey Wales.' I've heard it's not that good,  so I got it out of curiousity.

Trivia Games / Eastwood Film Music Game
« on: July 22, 2004, 12:58:41 PM »
Okay, I've never made a Trivia Game before, so this might turn out a bit wrong, but; there is a first time for everything.

As the title says, this is a trivia game for the music that has been in an Eastwood film. What I will do, is type a part of a line from the song, and you have to say what film it is from, and the rest of the line. For example, if I said:

Quote
You turn me...

The answer would be:
Film: Every Which Way But Loose
Rest of Song:
Quote
...Every Which Way But Loose.

So, If this all works and makes sence, I'll start us off with a simple and obvious, we will go with:

Quote
Just take you mask away...

The Dirty Harry Films / Something I Noticed...
« on: July 10, 2004, 08:54:31 AM »
There was something I noticed when I watched 'Dirty Harry' a minute ago, and I have never noticed it before, and I don't think I've ever read it on the board either.

When Harry walks into the place where he eats his Hot Dog, you can see a cinema in the background, and the film showing is none other than 'Play Misty for Me.'

As I said, I'd never noticed it before, and never seen it on the board; so I thought I'd bring it to your attention.

BTW: I wasn't slacking from coursework, I was just havin' a break  ;)

EDIT::Typo.

General Discussion / Clyde Beaten By Trainers ?
« on: June 04, 2004, 12:31:00 PM »
I was reading a review on Amazon for "Every Which Way But Loose" and one review said:

Quote
Poor "Clyde", October 29, 2003
Reviewer: zane from Seattle, WA  
Interesting that none of these reviews mentions the fact that Clyde (who was named Buddha by his trainers) was beaten so severely (for stealing doughnuts on the set) by his trainers that he died of brain hemorrhage. They replaced him, quietly, for the sequal. Primates are brutally dominated by their trainers in order to do the smallest actions (like smiling, which is a sign or fear in the wild). It isn't entertaining, it's cruel. Don't spend money on films that exploit animals. Grow up.

Is anyone able to spread any light if it is true; and If it is, Did Mr.Eastwood know it was going on ?

EDIT:: I seached into google, and I got this from one of the pages that came up:

"Any Which Way You Can:" The Death of Clyde

The orangutan name Clyde was born in a zoo but, in 1982, he became "surplus" when the zoo began a new program of orangutan breeding. Until the early 1980's, many zoos had maintained both Sumatran and Borneo orangutans and had interbred them. But when zoos became more purist about breeding, older hybrid orangutans were not suitable for Species Survival Programs (zoo programs to breed endangered species in captivity and to keep them genetically sound.) Clyde, a hybrid, did not fit in with the zoo's plans for the future. He and two other orangutans - CJ and Bubba - were about to find new careers in "show business."

Clint Eastwood had already starred in one film - "Any Which Way But Loose" - with an orangutan co-star trained by Las Vegas animal trainer Bobby Berosini. When a new Eastwood movie was announced, the largest supplier of animals for Hollywood films won the contract. The company did not own an orangutan so its owner scanned the industry papers for zoo surplus... and found Clyde.

Clyde became the "star" of "Any Which Way You Can." But, what most of Clyde's fans did not know was that Clyde barely survived the making of the film. In fact, he had been dead for nearly six months by the time he gained fame through the movie. The assistant to Gentle Jungle's head trainer told the media that the trainer beat Clyde to make him docile during the filming. He told reporters that one day before filming, the trainer ordered him and another trainer to help him take Clyde to an isolated spot because he wanted to "have a little talk with him."2 When Clyde became inattentive, the trainer repeatedly beat him with a cane and an ax handle. Clyde tried protecting himself with his arms and rolling in a circle, trying to avoid the blows which were ultimately fatal. He died of cardiac arrest a month after the beating.

Is this for real, and did Clint know about this ? Plus, what is everyone else's thoughts ?

General Discussion / Play Misty For Me
« on: June 01, 2004, 04:04:33 AM »
I saw this last night, and I thought it was terrific.
 I was acctually scared, and thought the Bathroom scene was better that the Bunny Boiler scene in Fatal Attraction.
One of my favourite thrillers of all time.

The Dirty Harry Films / Favourite "Do You Feel Lucky" speech
« on: May 20, 2004, 09:01:06 AM »
What was everyones favourite "Do You Feel Lucky" speech ? First time or second.

Mine was the first time, because of the shoot out at the begining, and how cool it was, when he pointed the gun at the robber, and pulled the trigger, with an empty gun.

Plus, the 2nd one symbolizes the end of the film aswell.  :(

Off-Topic Discussion / The Greatest Song Ever Made
« on: May 11, 2004, 09:57:53 AM »
This is THE impossible question of life, and if every member on this board agrees on a song, I will eat a Mobile (Cell) Phone, with proof of me doing it.

I am going to put two forward, with me thinking these are the two favourite songs:

Losing My Religion, by REM
Ain't No Sunshine, by Bill Withers.

EDIT:

I'm going to add some more of my favourite songs. I wouldn't say the two I posted earlier are the two of the greatest of all time, I think they are just good now.

  • Hotel California - The Eagles
  • Money for Nothing - Dire Straits
[li]Take it Easy - The Eagles[/li]
[li]Sweet Child o' Mine - Guns 'N' Roses[/li]
[li]Crosstown Traffic - Jimi Hendrix[/li]
[li]All Along the Watchtower - Jimi Hendrix[/li]
[li]Stairway to Heaven - Led Zep[/li]
[li]Immigrant Song - Led Zep[/li]
[li]Travelling Riverside Blues - Led Zep[/li]
[li]Dazed and Confused -  Led Zep[/li]
[li]Freebird - Lynard Skynard[/li]
[li]Sweet Home Alabama - Lynard Skynard[/li]
[li]Pretty much everything I've heard by Metallica.[/li]
[li]Bark at the Moon - Ozzy Osbourne[/li]
[li]Money - Pink Floyd[/li]
[li]Brain Damage - Pink Floyd[/li]
[li]Another Brink in the Wall - Pink Floyd[/li]
[li]Pretty much everything Queen done.[/li]
[/list]

Now, Nirvana. I really don't see the big deal with these. I think they are medicore at best. I've got 'Nevermind' and  just can't see why it's praised so much. I can listen to them sometimes. but I get bored of them pretty easy. I think they (at least Nevermind is)  really over-rated.
