I only saw 25 movies in 2022. I don't think I've ever seen fewer movies before during a given year. There just seems to be far fewer movies that I'm interested in really watching these days. I find that I get more enjoyment for a longer period of time from streaming TV series.

My movie theater attendance has also really dropped off the past couple of years. I used to see movies frequently in theaters and really enjoy it, but I find that I've grown more accustomed to watching films at home now, due to COVID, and at least when it comes to new releases, it's hard for me to really feel passionate about seeing very many films anymore. Movie quality, to me, seems to have declined over the past few years. Unless a movie has amazing special effects, or a really compelling reason for me to see it in theaters, I'm just not doing it anymore. I only saw two movies last year in theaters.

How does everyone else feel about the quality of movies these days, and have you also found that you are seeing fewer films in theaters than you usually do? Is that due to COVID, a lack of interest, or a combination of the two? Or, is this not true for you? I'd love to hear everyone's thoughts on this.

My movie watching overall has dramatically reduced since I got married. If you look at my movie journals through the years I watched plenty each year but since 2014, it has plummeted.

It's a combination of not having the time as I did when I was single. Also over the past couple of years, even with covid hanging around, there just hasn't been much I wanted to rush to the cinema to see. I think I only saw two films at the cinema last year. I went yesterday, so hopefully there's more things I want to see this year.

It may be a little while until we see a 2023 release but this is the thread for discussion of the films released this year. Anyone have any upcoming films that they're really looking forward to?

Enjoying Only Murders in the Building.. lightweight but fun.. good cast.

Season 2 coming at the end of June. 8)

I can understand Warner Bros. taking this action. If you're not making money for the studio, they're not going to keep you on. No matter how long you've been with them. There's no loyalty in big business unfortunately.

Clint's had a good run but nothing lasts forever. :(

Besides I'm sure there are other studios out there ready to jump at the chance if Warners aren't interested.

Here we are in mid-March with no new project announced so it looks like nothing for 2022.

Clint typically takes less than six weeks to shoot a film. It could be June before he announcing another project and it still could be release it before 2023. 8)

Nope, just Clint?s.

I have seen the other films years ago. Every Saturday after the football season was over when I was a kid, one of the channels would play all the Abbott and Costello, Marx Brothers, Ma and Pa Kettle and Francis the talking mule movies.

I bought a similar DVD box set a few years ago just for the one film. My box set only has 6 movies, I think it?s has all the sequels not the original film.

Did anyone else get a Clint Eastwood vibe from the character Cad Bane from The Book of Boba Fett?

The Off Topic Forum is here to give Eastwood fans a chance to converse about things that are unrelated to their favorite actor-director, but would be of general interest to most members.

Please take some time to read through the Off Topic Discussion Forum before posting a new topic. The Off Topic Discussion Forum already has many threads about such things as favorite TV shows and movie discussions for the current year, as well as several appreciation threads for particular actors, directors, musicians, etc. There is no need to post a new topic for every new film or TV show that you have seen. Use the Search function, and you will most likely find you will be able to reply to an existing thread and do not need to create a new one.

Any new topics that are posted that the Moderators feel belong in an existing thread, will be merged into that thread. It is frustrating to do a search on a particular topic and find pages of threads where that topic is mentioned, and it can be time consuming.

Please do try to confine your posts in both new and existing topics to things of general interest to other members of this Forum. You all know how to use e-mail and instant messaging, and many of you are members of other web boards and forums. You don't need to post things here that are better suited for those channels. But if you do have a random thought or stray observation that you simply must share with us, you can always put it in The Endless, Pointless Thread!

The Off-Topic Discussion Forum is occasionally purged, and when older topics are deleted, members who posted in those threads will see their post counts automatically decrease.

Most of what is written here is already covered in the Board's Community Standards, which you were required to read when you first registered on the Board.

This Web Board is provided by the generosity of the Webmaster and kept going in an orderly fashion by the hard work of the Moderators, and we are united by one purpose: To make it the best place on the Internet for people to discuss the films of Clint Eastwood. Your co-operation regarding these matters is greatly appreciated.

Thank you,
