I purchased this as a gift for an uncle.  Definitely a good series, even though Cruise is a Scientologist Moron.

Very good.  Tina & I enjoyed this very much.  I may see it a second time but damn, ticket prices are so frikiní expensive!  Youíd think with people staying home more due to easier access to movies there that ticket prices would come down.  Well, whatever.  I still enjoy going too much to discontinue altogether but donít see myself attending as much as I have been lately.  The next one Iím looking forward to is the newest James Bond film.

Amazing to think of how many great and talented actors Clint got to work with during this series 8 year run..

True.  Iím looking forward to seeing Charles Bronson and Dean Martin.  Itíll be fun picking out all of the various actors that have appeared on the show.

ďIncident With An ExecutionerĒ
January 23, 1959
(Season 1, Episode 3)

An interesting story where tensions arise between Favorís crew, occupants of an overturned stagecoach they discover and a bounty hunter. 

There are many familiar faces here; Martin Milner (Adam-12),
James Drury (The Virginian),
Stafford Repp (Batman) and
William Schallert, a character actor for almost sixty years.  Being an Elvis fan, I recognize him from Speedway and Jan Shepard from King Creole.

ďIncident At Alabaster PlainĒ
January 16, 1959
(Season 1, Episode 2)

A good episode.  We learn a little bit about Rowdyís military past when the crew happens upon a wedding taking place for an old friend of his.  Wishbone is amusing to watch as he gets ornery when asked to remove his backup gun while filling water barrels outside the church with Rowdy and Pete.

I instantly recognized Martin Balsam, from Psycho and Death Wish III.  Mark Richman is another familiar face, but I canít recall what else Iíve seen him in.  Iíve heard of Troy Donahue but havenít seen anything else heís done. 

Itís in this episode we see how Rowdy gets his rattlesnake-gripped Colt Peacemakers.  Eastwood took them with him overseas to use in his first two westerns directed by Sergio Leone.

Very well done!  This movie held my interest from beginning to end.  I havenít enjoyed an Eastwood directed, non-starring film this much since Mystic River.  As I was leaving the theater with Uncle Andy, I noticed a couple of elderly ladies still sitting as the credits rolled.  I couldnít resist good-naturedly saying to them, ďI still want one more Clint Eastwood western!Ē  They smiled and agreed.  I asked Andy what he thought of us flying to California to convince Mr. Eastwood to star in one more western.  Maybe weíd get bit parts, dress up in cowboy outfits and ride horses!  At 89, if anybody can make a good western at that age, itís Clint Eastwood!

Ok, back on track with Richard Jewell.  For me, it succeeded where The 15:17 To Paris failed.  I canít pinpoint why.  The only major difference is that professional actors werenít used in the principal roles so perhaps thatís it.  One trend I notice with his movies he only directs is that the subject matter IS always interesting.  Selfishly, Iíd rather see him direct an action movie or western but itís not my career.  My indifference was washed away with satisfaction with this latest installment in Clintís singularly, long-lasting and iconic career.  Regardless of box office performance and how many awards it may or may not win, this is a winner to me.

Thank you, Matt.  This is a very interesting, thought-provoking post.  I remember being a part of the problem, not the solution.  I am not proud of that and am deeply regretful and sorry.  When I reflect on that period in my life, I am ashamed, embarrassed and even disgusted.  I am relieved, even proud, that I have learned, grown and improved since then.  I wish I could say that for others, but sadly, such is not the case.  I reckon itís best not to focus on that, but rather, appreciate where I am now as opposed to a handful of years ago.  Things will never be perfect but to quote a famous singer, ďYou gotta take the bad with the good.Ē  Keeping that in mind, I am grateful to still be a member here.  Itís the best fan-related site Iíve ever come across and consider it a privilege and honor to be associated with it.  The posts are always interesting, both On and Off Topic.  The respect, fun and camaraderie here is priceless, too.  As 2019 comes to an end I look forward to the 2020 with a positive outlook and continue to cherish this forum, members, moderators and posts.

Sorry this took so long....

I complain about movies Clint directs but doesnít star in, but Iíll be checking this out soon.  If anything, Iím looking forward to redemption for The 15:17 To Paris. 

The subject matter does look interesting and from what Iíve seen in the trailers thus far, appears to be an entertaining, thought-provoking film.

I agree with KC, Iíll wait until theyíre all available on Blu-ray.  It makes no sense to release this set with even just one movie in dvd format, never mind seven!  Iím used to disappointment, though.  The entire TOS Star Trek television and movie series is available in one set, sans the Directorís Edition of the first movie, which was an improvement over the original! 

My guess is that the Signature Collection will see re-release with all films on Blu-ray format with the inclusion of Richard Jewell.

This 2007 action movie was a disappointment.  So much so that I shut it off one hour into it.  Iíve seen a lot by Statham that Iíve enjoyed and some by Li.  Theyíre both great in The Expendables film series, too.  I try to sit through any movie I start, but after this I believe Iíll change that policy.

These were all good action movies.  All sequels, I enjoyed seeing the return of Stallone as Rambo and Schwarzenegger as Terminator.  Gerard Butler has proven to be an entertaining, relevant actor in the genre.

Thank you!  Iím not a very religious or superstitious man, but I believe my mom was with me the morning of my birthday when the person at the Dunkiní drive-thru paid it forward and took care of my order.   I believe my dad was with me when I won the bi-weekly draw at work for a prime parking space later that same day.  My ex-wife brought my kids to see me before my MRI appointment the same night, which was thoughtful.  Nothing beats seeing my kids on my birthday.  They gave me birthday, Thanksgiving cards and ornaments with their photos on them.  Very sweet.  Once again, Lady Luck wove her magic wand because upon their departure my appointment was moved up and I was able to start immediately which meant arriving home an hour earlier to finish celebrating my birthday with Tina. 

I havenít been posting here much lately but am more than happy to respond here now and show my appreciation for recognizing my birthday and sharing with you what a great birthday I had. 

So again, thank you!  I sincerely, honestly and truly wish you all well and hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving.

Good day for a marathon, feeling run down and tired.  Sleeping off and on all day but making sure to eat, drink plenty of water and rest.  Hope this buggerís gone by morning.
