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.

It may be a little while until we see a 2019 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?

This one I watched on youtube. The three main stars are perfect. Was this Hitchcock's first and only love triangle film? My favorite scene is where the coffee cup is positioned on the table and the camera shot has it so big in the foreground on the screen. Just brilliant.

I wish I could say more and dissect these films like others here on the board. I always feel out of my depth when it comes to writing reviews for films.

Sure, I've just extended the schedule to include both of these. I put To Catch a Thief for this week, and The Birds as our finale the following week.

Cool. I have these two on DVD. 8)

I watch a lot. There aren't many of Hitchcock ones, I'm sure The Paradine Case they have and the quality is good.

Thanks. I watched Notorious yesterday and the quality was fine. 8)

Has anyone watched full length films on youtube?

I just searched the Hitchcock ones I haven't seen for our challenge and they're available. Is the quality ok?

So, was Santy Claws kind to you this year?

I must have been a good boy as I did pretty well. :)

The Beatles White Album Delux set, Star Wars Trivial Pursuit boardgame, Movie trivia game, Lawn edger, Star Wars T-Shirt (4 droids crossing the road ala Abbey Road) and some scotch. 8)

Some of the films getting mentioned in the popular films you've never seen thread are getting labeled over rated. I knew there was a topic here somewhere about over rated films. I just didn't think it was started 13 years ago and hasn't been posted in since 2009!! Where the heck does the time go?

Anyway, my top three most over rated films, 2001, Titanic and Avatar.

Out of interest.... Has anyone here never seen a Rocky or Star Trek film.. ?

I've seen all the Rocky films except Creed II multiple times. I've only seen the original Star Trek movies once. Haven't seen any of the latest ones. I could never get into Star Trek. As a kid, I remember it was always on telly at 5pm on a Sunday night but it never interested me to watch every week.

I finally watched Ferris Bueller's Day Off, thanks to Netflix. I wasn't blown away by it. It was an OK time filler. I can see why it has a cult following. John Hughes the director had a few quintessential teenage 1980's films from memory.

My favorite part was the Twist and Shout song on the parade float. 8)

I've never seen a Star Wars film or an Indiana Jones.

See Raiders Of The Lost Ark, the first Indiana Jones film. I think you'll like it. :)

If you only ever watch one Christmas movie then it simply has to be the original

with Die Hard as second...

I have It's A Wonderful Life as number one followed by Die Hard and Miracle On 34th Street as my top three Xmas films. :)

One I've never seen but always intended to put right, just haven't got round to yet is
Mary Poppins

I only finally saw that a couple of years ago for the first time. :)
