General Discussion / Re: Happy 88th Birthday Mr Eastwood
« on: June 01, 2018, 06:49:40 PM »

   TCM Channel is a joke. They didn't put one movie of Eastwood's on that day.


          AKA23, Well, the thing with Tightrope was @ the time I saw it I was rapidly losing interest in most of Eastwood's movies that followed ( Though Alcatraz was a good flick) after TOJWales. Tightrope was a great departure, but mostly I was thrilled not to see Sondra Locke in the movie. I detested Sudden Impact ( for the Locke reason) and thought the Dirty Harry character had become ridiculous and embarrassingly like a comic book. Regardless, Eastwood's Wes Block was a departure as a flawed and damaged person. I thought Eastwood finally was doing a role that would be taken serious. Even after all these years his performance is still one of my faves. It's a dark movie,but I always felt Eastwood didn't do enough of those type roles @ the time and Bujold was always an interesting actress. I once read Susan Saradon turned down Bujold's role.... Anyhow, Rebecca Perle cancels out Locke any day...........


Actually now that I think about it Costner and Harrison Ford are quite overrated and mediocre as actors. For awhile there they were lauded and fawned over by the very same critics who ostracized Eastwood. Where are they today?...... bye bye.....Eastwood @ 88 still relevant.....


      Eastwood was never a mediocre actor. That was made up nonsense by Pauline Kael who was basically an overrated 'Film Critic'. I think Eastwood from his early years got loop holed as the next 'Gary Cooper,' and all these other Cowboy actors which was equally lame. Basically the Leone movies made him a target since there wasn't much emotion required. As Eastwood got older he did get better. Certainly 'Tightrope, Bridges, and even White Hunter proved that as small examples. To me Eastwood was always the same guy and lasted longer than any one in the history of Hollywood. Now these clowns cant say anything. If anyone is mediocre as an actor it's Chuck Norris.


Gran Torino
Dirty Harry
The Outlaw Josey Wales

I cant see any new viewer who would prefer Unforgiven over TOJW and the Leone Trilogy.

Outside of that quote and the fact it did make money J.C, I never liked the movie. When i saw it originally I have to admit my first thought was " Jeez, Locke is in this movie too?" so my hatred was in full mode, but I just thought the whole movie was ridiculous and it had become a tired act. Go watch 'The Dead Pool' which is even more embarrassing. The movie Eastwood did that should had got more response as far as 80's movies was 'White Hunter Black Heart' which is a great movie. One last point J.C.. Locke I agree is very good in the Gauntlet, but she's mediocre in anything else she did with Eastwood.

 The only thing new with Eastwood is he has an Executive Producer credit for the new movie ' Indian Horse' based on the Richard Wagamese novel coming out this week .


Letters From Iwo Jima. A Tour De Force of a movie still.

 Hey Scott, It's 14:59.......

The movie as of today has made $54,780,000 from combined worldwide box office receipts. So in hindsight the movie will break even.......barely...


Coming into the weekend the movie has grossed $35,398.000. Maybe it will make $25,000,000 to break even from a Foreign box office combined for a $60 mill budget........ I doubt it.

I really have no interest in this movie. To be honest, I don't really expect too much anymore from Eastwood's movies. The guy is going to be 88 this year. He's already done a ton of great work and he's The King Of Hollywood. No one has lasted as long as he has.  I think Eastwood just picks films now that appeal to him and if people go and see it fine, It's a bonus. Realistically since Gran Torino with the exception of American Sniper and Sully, (which was ok) none of his movies have been box office hits. To me 15:17 would of been better off as an HBO movie.

  The movie will have to gross at least 60 mill at the Box Office to break even. Can't see it though not impossible.

The only difference was the Sheriff got a free hunk of pie.


Changeling, Hereafter and Blood Work were three of Eastwood's weakest movies and bombed at the Box Office. There were legit reasons they got negative reviews.


        I haven't read such bad reviews for an Eastwood movie this profound in maybe 40 years and that was when EWWBLoose was released.


       For what i've read on the Internet most of the reviews have been dismal. Think I'll pass on this movie. BTW, A.O. Scott is a nephew of Eli Wallach.

 Nigel Andrews of The Financial Times  gave the movie a bad review. Pretty much ostracizing the bad acting by the three leads.
