I finally broke down and ordered it on online, along with The Wrath Of Khan.  I’ll frame both of them.

General Discussion / What was the last Eastwood film you watched?

Wagon Train? Oh, Paint Your Wagon, Lol! 😳🤪🤣

I hear ya on that one.   Maybe I’ll have to age another ten years before I enjoy that one...but I doubt it. 

Truth be told, I had a stressful work day and was determined to tune out.  I’ve done that recently with the best of all Star Trek films, The Wrath Of Khan so I want keen on returning to that again so soon, much as I love it. 

For the life of me, I don’t know what on the hell made me decide on Firefox!  Hahaha!  But, I’m so glad I did because after all these years I finally fully appreciate it.  I was cognizant of the possibility that I’d get bored... I never did! Sa-weeeeeet!  I
Like Pale Rider in 2015 I very much enjoyed this most recent viewing and plan on doing it again soon.  Hell, I’d make the effort to view it here on a Movie Night, too.  I’m sure it’d be fun.

I find it interesting that Firefox came out the same year as The Wrath Of Khan.  I used to have both movie posters and am determined to purchase and frame them. 

Thanks for your reply, R7!  You and everybody else on The Board here stay healthy.

Firefox. 

I was 15 when I saw it on the big screen.  I was sorely disappointed but have returned to it occasionally over the years.  Slowly, it began to grow on me but this is the first time I enjoyed it all the way through.  That’s good, because I look forward to seeing it again sooner than later.

I thought Dennehy was great in Silverado.  It’s one of my all time favorite westerns.

There was a rumor going around that Stallone approached Eastwood to appear in the third Expendables film.  I don’t know if there’s any truth to it, but definitely would’ve been cool.  Still would be but I agree, very unlikely.  Not impossible, but improbable.

That’s great, Gant.  I’m glad you enjoyed it.  I did the same with Tina a couple of years ago and we both enjoyed it.  Of my boyhood heroes I can say I actually got to meet one of them.  The King is dead, so, that’s off the table.  Out of who remains, Shatner and Eastwood, if I had the luxury of a choice I’d prefer to meet Clint because he seems more personable and receptive to fans.

The closest I ever came was when Eastwood was in Cambridge, Massachusetts to accept his Hasty Puddings Man Of The Year Award from Harvard University in 1991.  I remember talking with a friend about it on the phone and he asked if I planned on going.  Still a fan, but jaded over Pink Cadillac, White Hunter, Black Heart and The Rookie I had no desire to make the attempt.  I now wish I had.

The second time Clint was in the vicinity was 11 years later, filming Mystic River in Boston in 2002.  I knew there was slim chance even seeing him, much less actually meeting him so I decided to not even bother trying. 

I’m glad I went out of my way to see William “Captain Kirk” Shatner talk to us in the audience after a screening of The Wrath Of Khan.  That was very fun and entertaining.  I went against my better judgment of paying for a photo with him but my biggest regret is not shaking his hand and thanking him.  If he comes by again I’ll do it right next time and have Tina take a photo of us shaking hands.  That way, I’ll have two separate images of the moment captured and the satisfaction of expressing my gratitude.

Captain Kirk was my first boyhood hero.  I loved Shatner’s portrayal.  He was courageous, tough and determined.  Yeah, there were moments he overacted but at his best he was the ultimate space exploring hero.  I would get caught up in the fights he won, the passionate speeches he gave and the women he loved, alien and human.  The glimpses of his sense of humor revealed was the icing on the cake, especially when displayed with the camaraderie he shared with Leonard Nimoy as Spock and DeForest Kelley as Dr. McCoy.  To me, Shatner as Kirk is the epitome of Star Trek.

Thank you SK & R7,

It was a beautiful day for a walk that Tina & I were more than happy to take advantage of.  I called my kids to wish them a Happy Easter and we talked for a short while.  I miss them so much.  I can’t wait to see them again!  It’s bad enough we don’t live together anymore so this pandemic makes a bad situation worse. 

I do hope everybody is making the best of the situation and that you’re all safe, healthy and happy.

🙂🙏❤️

I began watching these this morning.  After the first one, Tina and I went out for a walk.  About halfway through the last one now.  Never tire of these.

Taken today during a break from work, just outside in the yard.  Happy Friday, hope you're all healthy, happy & safe.  Take care.

Thank you, Matt.  Yes, agreed.  At least the weather is nice enough out to get out for fresh air occasionally.
