That sounds like he could mean it, but it could be that he's waiting on a part he'd like to play.

I actually ended up replacing the Tales from the Darkside complete series with the complete series of Perry Mason. A bit of a Perry Mason kick, I guess you could say. ;)

This is also on its way to me. Silent Rage is the only one I've seen before, and I like that a lot. It's part martial arts, and part sci-fi slasher horror. O0

I don't know anything about the other two, outside of looking them up on IMDb, but I'm looking forward to checking them out. Especially the Jan-Michael Vincent movie.

Great news, Satu! Congratulations!

Here's the poster I got from IMDb.

It's intriguing.

Oh, that's right. Yeah, I'd put that in the same category as the Sully one.

Besides Breezy, has Eastwood ever done a cameo in one of his directed only films that we know of? This is the first I've heard about American Sniper.

I know Sully was close to a cameo with the Gran Torino ad in New York.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 was great! These movies have been some of my favorites out of all the Marvel films. It'll be one of my favorite 2017 movies.

Some stuff I have on the way: Perry Mason: The Complete Movie Collection (all 30 TV movies from 1985-1995--including the four made after Raymond Burr's death), the complete series of Tales from the Darkside, and The Stepford Wives.

Continuing Halloween with another so-bad-it's-good-horror/non-horror film.  This is one crazy movie. It's got a star-studded cast (Michael Caine, Henry Fonda, Richard Chamberlain, Olivia de Havilland and more) but it's awful. And yet, it's also kind of enjoyable (but never good). Can't recommend it for anyone who doesn't enjoy really bad cheesy awful movies.
I saw this yesterday. I hadn't seen it before (I mentioned in the post right after this one that I'd wondered if I'd seen it--it's certainly the sort of movie I'd watch). I enjoyed it, though there were certainly some issues there.

So you're watching all five today? I've never done that.

Those that know me well enough here know what vinyl purchases I'd make first, but these 3 classics come to mind as well. 

What's the middle one?

I've probably mentioned before about liking Cosmo's Factory somewhere on the board. I know I've mentioned liking Creedence Clearwater Revival, and of course last year I saw John Fogerty in concert and posted about it. My dad had the cassette of it and would play "I Heard it Through the Grapevine" for me.

March and April both had the same number of posts. :D

It is crazy to think it's been 20 years since these movies were released. They were both video rentals for me. I don't know if I've ever seen Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil a second time. I have seen Absolute Power a few times and have always enjoyed it. It's not a favorite, but I especially like seeing Clint and Ed Harris together on screen. And it's interesting that Harris and Laura Linney both appeared in The Truman Show, which was released the following year.

You know, I could see them doing it the same way they've done the new Planet of the Apes movies.
And going along with that, I'd guess Andy Serkis could even play Clyde.

Breezy... Kay Lenz. Underrated actress and one of Eastwood's best movies.
I've seen Breezy twice, the second time last year during the Eastwood movie challenge, and both times I've been surprised at just how much I've liked the movie. It really is a gem.

Jonathan Demme, director of The Silence of the Lambs, has died at 73.

Terror Train was a good 1980 slasher movie.

I "borrowed" that Tom Hanks one. ;D

I saw the story posted last night on facebook but it was a bit too late to stop by the board to see if anyone had posted it already.

Sounds very interesting! I'm guessing we might see this released next year perhaps.
