I wonder if I'll come across the programme? Would a Yankees programme from May 17, 2014 be worth anything?

Would you believe it? I came across the programme today in another cleanup of papers and junk.

Brett Gardiner on the cover.

Worth any $$$$$$$?

This was OK. Good female cast but to me it was like, who could put on the most makeup? I think Cate Blanchett won by a powder puff. Follows the same lines as the previous Ocean's films only this time, it's a girl gang being brought together for a heist.


This was a beautiful film from France of a young boy taken from an orphanage to live a woman and her husband. The boy strikes up a friendship with the local game poacher.


This was amusing but not hysterically funny from Adam Sandler. Good film for rainy day.


I enjoyed this but it's way too long at 2 hours and 12 minutes. Story of the two men (Former Texan Rangers) who tracked down Bonnie and Clyde back in the 1930's. Fascinating real footage at the end of the film showing how many people adored these murderers and how it still continues now with so called celebrities and the media willing to pay to get a story.


Another feel good rainy day film. Hugh Grant plays an Oscar winning screenwriter who hasn't written anything decent in 15 years and is offered a job teaching a class at University. Grant's scenes with Alison Janney are the highlight through this film. Unfortunately there's only three of them.


Al Pacino stars as Danny Collins, a one hit wonder singer from the 1970's, who receives a letter from John Lennon, 30 odd years after it was sent. Loosely based on a real story. Pacino plays the rich, sex and drugs rock star well. And the soundtrack is full of John Lennon songs.

I gotta say.. This new Richard Curtis/Danny Boyle film "Yesterday" sounds bloody awful...

I liked the trailer but haven't had a chance to see the film yet.

Eastwood News / Paul Benjamin R.I.P
« on: July 05, 2019, 12:44:04 AM »
Veteran actor Paul Benjamin, who is best known for his role in the classic Spike Lee film Do the Right Thing, has passed away, according to a post on Lee’s Instagram page. He was 81.

Benjamin began his career in the 1960s playing bit parts in major and minor films, such as Midnight Cowboy and Escape from Alcatraz. His profile rose incrementally with his performances in the TV versions of I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings and Gideon’s Trumpet in 1979 and 1980, respectively, according to
Beginning in the 1980s, Benjamin starred alongside legends of the screen and stage, such as Richard Pryor in the heartbreaking military drama Some Kind of Hero in 1982; Barbara Streisand in Nuts in 1987; Clint Eastwood in Pink Cadillac in 1989; Robert Townsend in The Five Heartbeats in 1991; Bill Duke in Hoodlum in 1997; and John Singleton in the searing thriller Rosewood in 1997.

High hopes for this one to play a very important role in the awards race.

And again I knew someone would mention awards even before filming has begun.

Really, seriously?


Paul Walter Hauser will be Richard Jewell in Clint Eastwood’s The Ballad of Richard Jewell.

Pretty close resemblance to Jack Black!!!

What about Jack Black as Richard Jewell?

I've never heard of Hunt for the Wilder People, SK. Have you seen it before?

Yeah saw it when it was first released about 3 years ago. Very funny film from New Zealand. Highly recommend tracking it down. 😀

The making of featurette on The Mule DVD was very interesting. It only goes for 10 minutes but has it been mentioned here before that some of the clothes that Clint wears in this film are clothes he's wore in other films?

I've started this thread a day early so we don't have multiple birthday topics as we have in the past. :)

Even quieter now. Not one post in the off topic forum in over a week.

I think the end of this site or the discussion side of it, is on the horizon.

I have a feeling Clint may go for an unknown like he did for Gran Torino .

I was very pleased with The Greatest Showman.

I'm seeing Hugh Jackman's live show in August. 8)
