Off-Topic Discussion / George A. Romero
« on: February 04, 2006, 02:49:06 PM »
I just noticed George Romero was born February 4, 1940 (so happy birthday wherever he is out there :D). Anyhow, I thought I'd start a general thread for any Romero fans on the board.

The only movie I haven't seen of his is Knightriders. But here's how I'd rank the others I have seen (as always, there's nothing definate about this list, and I've only seen some of the movies once):

1. Martin (1977)
2. Night of the Living Dead (1968)
3. The Crazies (1973)
4. Dawn of the Dead (1978)
5. Day of the Dead (1985)
6. Season of the Witch (1972) AKA: Hungry Wives ::)
7. Land of the Dead (2005)
8. Monkey Shines (1988)
9. Creepshow (1982)
10. Two Evil Eyes (1990)
11. There's Always Vanilla (1971)
12. The Dark Half (1993)
13. Bruiser (2000)

John Amplas as Martin

Off-Topic Discussion / Favorite Authors/Books
« on: March 03, 2005, 05:53:42 PM »
What's some of your favorite authors or books? I have a stack of books waiting to be read but I'm always interested in new authors I haven't "discovered" yet.

A few of mine in no order:

Flannery O'Connor - best known for her short stories, but I've read one of the two novels she wrote, Wise Blood, which ranks as one of the strangest books I've read.

Richard Laymon - The Traveling Vampire Show, Bite. I just recently started reading Laymon. If you like horror, pick up one of his books. I'm hooked and have been buying a few of his here and there to read when I have time.

Ray Bradbury - Something Wicked This Way Comes. Haven't read a lot of his work yet, but I'm working on it.

J.D. Salinger - The Catcher in the Rye.

Richard Matheson - I mentioned in the favorite screenwriters thread I have a lot of respect for him. He's had an ideal career in both publishing and TV/Screen writing.

Harper Lee - To Kill a Mockingbird - the best book I read in high school.

Mary Shelley - Frankenstein

F. Scott Fitzgerald - The Great Gatsby

Dennis Lehane - Mystic River, A Drink Before the War

Margeret Atwood - The Handmaid's Tale

R.L. Stine - I know what you're thinking... 8) ;) I included him because I loved him as a kid, and I've read one of his recent "adult" books, which was entertaining.

General Discussion / Favorite Eastwood directed-only film
« on: June 06, 2004, 11:03:31 AM »
I'm using the word "only" because of Eastwood's 20 films that he's directed and been in (you don't only direct a film ;)).

I scanned through 21 pages of the General discussion forum to see if we'd ever had a poll or discussion like this before. Now that Breezy is available on Region 1 DVD, and some of us are seeing it for the first time, I was wondering which was your favorite of the four films Eastwood has directed without being in.

I've only seen each film once apiece, actually, but I feel safe in saying that Bird is my favorite of the group.

Questions & Answers / Coogan's Bluff chase scene music
« on: April 23, 2004, 03:39:02 PM »
Anybody know whether you can download any music from Coogan's Bluff? I'm interested in it for a project I'm doing, in particularly, the music playing during the scene at the end when Coogan is chasing Ringerman. I know there's that chase scene in The Enforcer too that could have some good music, but I haven't checked that scene out yet on my dvd.

I checked this site's music, but can't find anything from Coogan's.

EDIT: Wait a second. Is there music playing during the chase scene? I watched part of the scene last night and I can't honestly remember if there's music playing during the whole scene or not. :-\

Eastwood News / "Into the 'Mystic'"
« on: October 28, 2003, 10:14:36 AM »
I was just reading an article on MSN, and decided to share it with the rest of you.

Here it is!

I thought it was interesting because of the last line where Brian Helgeland says that this could be Eastwood's last film.

General Discussion / "Which Way" Films...sequel better?
« on: September 09, 2003, 04:18:05 PM »
Hey, folks, I finally got around to watching Every Which Way but Loose again. It'd been such a long time since I'd seen it, it was almost like watching it for the first time.

Anyhow, I recall during the film discussion that some had mentioned that they thought Any Which Way You Can was better than Every Which Way but Loose. I saw AWWYC a while back, so I do kinda still remember it, but I really think the first was quite better. I was very surprised by the way the movie ended, Philo didn't get his girl and he threw the fight with Tank Murdock. Not exactly ending the way you'd think a movie like that would end. This original showed a lot of originality (besides co-starring a monkey :P) by doing the unpredictable. I'm almost surprised by the fact that most critics dismissed the film when it was released.

Any thoughts?

General Discussion / Eastwood speech
« on: March 28, 2003, 04:20:18 PM »
As I've mentioned earlier, I'm in a Speech class this semester. We're about to start our "Informative" speeches Monday, and I've decided to do mine on...Guess who?...Go ahead, GUESS!...You got it, Clint Eastwood. It's a five minute speech, and I haven't organized the information I want to share with my classmates, but I'm strongly considering using a clip from White Hunter, Black Heart as part of my presentation. I'm thinking of the scene where John Wilson tells his screenwriter why he will never be a good screenwriter. I figured I'd try to make the connection that Eastwood has viewed film making in a similar way (with the "you let 85 million popcorn eaters sway you this way and that" line).
What do you think? Sound cool? 8) I'm wanting to actually present Eastwood as a respectable filmmaker, rather than just a plain action star.

Questions & Answers / The Eiger Sanction DVD
« on: February 26, 2003, 01:35:32 PM »
I noticed an Eiger Sanction DVD is being released March 4. Is this a special edition? This movie has already been released on DVD before, right?

Questions & Answers / Breezy
« on: January 26, 2003, 04:45:54 PM »
Why isn't this movie available? It's not even easy to find on VHS. I looked it up on e-Bay and they may have a few copies, but it's for high prices.

What gives? I've never seen this movie, and I'd like to sometime.

General Discussion / Alison Eastwood on Kilborn last night
« on: January 10, 2003, 03:59:54 PM »
Did anybody catch Alison Eastwood on "The Late Late Show with Craig Kilborn" last night?

I thought a funny part was when Craig was asking her about her family's reaction to her posing in Playboy and she said she'd told her mom about it but she couldn't tell her dad. So she told Dina, who told Clint about it.

Other than that, there really wasn't much to the interview. They did mention a movie she has coming out next month, which I think they said it was Poolhall Junkies.

Questions & Answers / Play Misty for Me DVD
« on: January 07, 2003, 04:40:54 PM »
I was looking on eBay at the Play Misty for Me DVD and it mentions as an extra feature: The Beguiled featurette.

Why is a Beguiled featurette on the Play Misty for Me DVD? (if its true, that is) And to beat it all, The Beguiled DVD doesn't have any type of a featurette on it. What gives? ???

Questions & Answers / Rawhide on Hallmark?
« on: December 19, 2002, 03:18:13 PM »
My cable company just started getting the Hallmark channel earlier this week. I remember a little while back, it was on the board that Rawhide was being shown on the Hallmark channel (if I remember right).

Is that still on, and if so, what time?

Questions & Answers / Clint's sister
« on: December 04, 2002, 09:05:48 AM »
The subject came up on the old board and I mentioned that I have never heard Clint or anybody else speak of his sister. I was wondering if there was any information on her.

And I remember Stranger speaking of a picture that he questioned could have been Clint with his sister. Any info on this?
