Off-Topic Discussion / Re: Movies I have watched this week

I watched these Paul Newman films a short while ago.  The Verdict was very good.  I did not care for Absence Of Malice, though. 
Both of those have looked interesting to me in the past but I still haven't watched them.

Aline, I've seen a number of those disaster movies as well. I watched the Airport movies last year (or was that early this year--who can remember anymore? :D I have the movie journal at least...) and enjoyed those.

 ;D I did. I almost wrote in the post that I was going to mask up and go to a bookstore.

I just saw this news a few minutes ago and figured it had already been reported here. Sad news indeed.

I'm pretty pumped about this. The novel The Living Dead is set to release tomorrow (August 4) in the US. George Romero spent years working on the book, and it was left unfinished when he died three years ago. So another writer was brought in to finish the book. I plan on buying the book in a real bookstore tomorrow.

Sad to hear about these deaths over the last couple days. I enjoyed watching Regis Philbin. I used to watch the morning show quite a bit when I had the chance, and regularly watched the original Who Wants to be a Millionaire.

(This was originally part of my post that talked about John Saxon, but since that was moved to Eastwood news, I've repeated what I mentioned about Philbin)

John Saxon was one of the high spots of Joe Kidd (Clint and Robert Duvall being the others), but I love him in Black Christmas, A Nightmare on Elm Street, and Wes Craven's New Nightmare (and I feel like I should mention Enter the Dragon too).


(with Heather Langenkamp in New Nightmare)

I can't see Gant's avatar either.

It looks like there's no space between two posts, and then there's a small space separating the next two posts.

EDIT: And then when I posted this message, it blends in with the board background, but it might not once someone else posts.

I got a four disc copy of Runnin Down a Dream. The first two discs are for the nearly four hour movie, disc three is a 30th anniversary concert, and disc four is a CD. I watched this movie a few years ago (just shortly before Petty's death, in fact :'() and loved it. This might be the first documentary I ever bought on DVD.

Yay! Now we're all set through 2020! :D
Hey, that's still the case--we're set through the end of this year for the calendar!

Is there a new look to the board, or is my view a little off right now?

I have Two Mules on DVD in a three pack with High Plains Drifter and Joe Kidd, so I probably won't pick this one up. But I'm thinking about preordering Breezy on Blu-ray. O0

Kino Lorber also has a Blu-Ray of Two Mules for Sister Sara coming out on October 25. Nothing is listed on the website yet, but they do have the order info for Breezy now. https://www.kinolorber.com/product/breezy-blu-ray

Here's the information about Two Mules from their Facebook page:

From Don Siegel, the legendary director of Invasion of the Body Snatchers, Coogan’s Bluff, Dirty Harry, Charley Varrick, The Shootist and Escape from Alcatraz, comes this classic western starring screen legends Clint Eastwood (The Good, the Bad and the Ugly, High Plains Drifter) and Shirley MacLaine (Sweet Charity, Irma La Douce). Eastwood is a hard-hitting drifter who rides into town and single-handedly rescues a local nun (MacLaine) from a gang of bandits. After meeting a band of Mexican revolutionaries bent on resisting the French occupation of Mexico, the cowboy and Sister Sara decide to join forces with the freedom fighters and set off on a deadly mission to capture the enemy’s garrison. But along the way, a steamy romance develops between them when the soft-spoken hero discovers the nun is not what she seems. Ending with a violent climax at the well-protected fort, this action-packed western classic cemented Eastwood’s status as a true cinematic superstar. Featuring a masterful score by the great Ennio Morricone (A Fistful of Dollars).
The two different cuts is interesting here. IMDb lists the runtime as being the international cut, so I guess that's the only one I've seen before. Was it released nearly ten minutes shorter?

I have never seen either of the Once Upon a Time in the West or America films.
I don't recall the Once Upon a Time in America score offhand, but the music in Once Upon a Time in the West is beautiful and at times haunting (I've only seen America once, but have seen West a few times).

I just saw this posted online where it shows a picture of Ennio Morricone and Sergio Leone as primary school classmates. I don't remember if I ever heard that the two went to school together (assuming that the photo is labeled correctly, of course).

Questions & Answers / Re: Clint Eastwood movies on Netflix?
« on: July 10, 2020, 07:29:26 AM »
Do you subscribe to Netflix currently or are you trying to figure out if it's something you want to subscribe to? There's a search engine where you can find what is streaming on which services called Just Watch, but it's mostly for the US. I don't know if there's a European version.

I was sad to see this news this morning too. His score for The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly is probably my favorite of all time. I also love his work in Compañeros.

I was going through some DVDs in my closet and saw my Firefox DVD. Might have to watch it sometime.

Off-Topic Discussion / Re: Movies I have watched this week
« on: June 30, 2020, 05:49:08 PM »
I recently watched Superman III and IV, which I hadn't seen in a very long time. I only remembered parts of the movies. I've seen the first two movies the most, which is why I just skipped to the last two, but now I kinda want to go back and watch the first two again. The third film is so bizarre, it feels like they stuck Superman in a Richard Pryor movie. From the opening slapstick comedy sequence to the end, the film is such a departure from the first two movies. Though the scene when the villain's sister is pulled into the super computer really freaked me out as a kid. III is definitely my least favorite of the franchise.

I also watched the 1943 serial Batman. The racism against the Japanese is cringeworthy (and of course reminds us of how nasty that time in American history is), but it was interesting to see the very first live action version of Batman nevertheless. You can see how the 1960s show took inspiration in those old serials. Coming up soon I'll check out the 1949 serial Batman and Robin, plus I have a couple Superman serials to watch from 1948 and 1950.

It's interesting that current TV seasons that run maybe only 8 or so episodes seem like a throwback to the serials. I've thought before that those short seasons really make it more like a miniseries.

Rawhide, I've watched some Magnum P.I. I bet that DVD set is nice.

A few days ago I picked up Friday the 13th: The Series on DVD.



This has nothing to do with the movies. It ran for three seasons in the late '80s and was created/produced by someone who worked on the movie series. I remember the show coming on when I was a kid but I was never interested because it isn't related to the movies. So making the purchase is a bit of a risk. :D But I've watched the first few episodes and I like it.
