Watched this at a 11:30 screening with a pretty good crowd of 30-40 people.  I liked this a lot and maybe more than any other Eastwood "true-life" films.  The tension during the bombing scene was typical great Eastwood direction.  Rockwell is very good as the lawyer but Hauser as Jewell is so terrific.... I hope he isn't skipped over during Oscar time.... he so effectively makes us feel the pain of what Jewell had to go thru as an innocent guy.   I wouldn't say it was the "best" movie Eastwood has made since Letters From Iwo-Jima (I would have to put Gran Torino in that spot) but it's certainly a very good, well crafted movie.

Anyone planning on catching the movie opening day/weekend? I'll probably see it next week. The theater I live about two miles from doesn't have it.

I'm planning to see the first screening tomorrow at the Alamo theater I go to... if the roads aren't icy.

Clint is scheduled to appear on the Ellen Degeneres show on Monday Dec 9th.  Also, Hauser is supposed to be on Jimmy Kimmel on Thursday and Hamm is supposed to be on The Tonight Show on Wednesday.

Interesting note that twice during the football games yesterday, the announcer said something like "And now for a special preview for Clint Eastwood's new movie...."  I think I had already seen the scenes that were shown from the regular trailer but it was neat that the network announcer introduced the preview first.

I think different theatres show different trailers. I was a bit surprised, but not shocked, that it didn’t show.

What did you think of Joker? I found it to be far too dark, grim and depressing. It was technically well done, but I personally didn’t find it to be very entertaining. I felt that the levity and fun that the Joker character usually has was completely absent.

Since the trailer was "attached" to Joker, I sorta assumed that it would be be attached to each print of that movie... but my brother said that he did not see the trailer either at another theater when he saw Joker.  The trailer for some reason reminded me of Mystic River... maybe the way it was shot or the abundance of good actors in the various scenes.

As for Joker, I really liked it and thought Phoenix was perfect in the role.  But certainly agree that it was dark and grim... more like the Heath Ledger Joker rather than the Jack Nicholson Joker.

Saw "Joker" today. Didn't see this trailer playing before it. I was pretty disappointed.

AKA... I saw Joker today and the trailer did show before the movie.  Right before the trailer, it even said something like "this trailer has been approved to accompany this feature" rather than the usual "has been rated" statement just ahead of a trailer.  So I'm surprised it wasn't shown when you saw Joker.

After watching Sad Hill Unearthed, I just had to watch The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly from start to finish.... yet again.

wow... just saw this thread today and watched it on Netflix.  Loved it.... even got goosebumps watching it.

This is one of the oddest casts that Eastwood has worked with. It’s very eclectic. I like Nina. I’m a fan of “Billions” and “Goliath,” and she had significant roles in both. If you’re interested in checking her out, but haven’t seen “Goliath,” I’d skip Season 2.

Yeah, I really like this cast... lots of good actors here.  I also think that Nina Arianda was very good in Billions (one of my favorite current shows).

Check this article below: article:

Loved to have eavesdropped on that conversation between Clint and Hamm.  I hope Hamm has a decent size role in the movie....

I, Tonya was a really good film with great acting all around.  Although I thought Hauser sorta stole the movie with his performance.  I'd rather see a rather unknown actor play the lead in this movie rather than an A-list actor.  I think he is a great choice here just from the little I've seen of him.

Rockwell is an amazing actor... I'm glad to see him in this film.  I think he will win the Emmy for best actor in a drama role for Fosse/Vernon tv series where he was great.

This Chainsaw Guy named Stacy Poitras is husband of  Alison Eastwood.

Looks like he also worked on Sully as a set dresser

Until Unforgiven, no other Studio would have allowed Eastwood to make movies like Bird, honky Tonk Man, etc... The commercial
 And critic's success of Unforgiven gives Eastwood more power.

Don't really agree with this.  Bird, Honkytonk Man, White Hunter Black Heart and Bronco Billy were all made well before Unforgiven.  Not to mention Play Misty For Me and Breezy

Yeah, I also took the scene where the cartel boss was killed to drastically up the danger to Earl and the possibility that he could easily be killed if they wanted him dead.  Garcia's character certainly liked Earl and was willing to look the other way whenever Earl deviated from his instructions... and the new guy wasn't going to do this.  Also, I thought the way this scene was filmed was very cool... to make it look like Garcia had actually shot his rifle... and then fall over.

Having now seen the film twice now, I don't recall this scene from the trailer being in the movie: "This is the last one, so help me God." I'm also not sure if "I don't deserve forgiveness" was in there either. Does anyone recall these scenes in the movie?

Funny, my wife and I was just talking about this an hour ago because my daughter saw the movie today and really liked it.  We are positive that the first line "This is the last one, so help me God." is NOT in the movie.  That actually disappointed me as I thought it was such a great line with a great Eastwood delivery in the trailer.  I had been curious to who he was saying this line to when I saw the movie or if he was by himself when he said it.  For some reason they must have cut that line out of the movie.  I'm not sure about the "forgiveness" line but I thought Earl had said something like this .... but not positive.

Roger Freidman at seems to really like "The Mule," and feels it should be rewarded with Oscar nominations. I don't think that's going to happen, since I think the film is too politically incorrect to be nominated by the current Academy membership, but it's a nice article. 

Yeah, I agree as well.  But maybe the Academy will have a similar thought like they did when it nominated John Wayne (and of course he won) for True Grit but the movie only got one other nomination I believe for best song.

I found the ending to be almost hopeful even though he's potentially going to spend the rest of his life in prison. Earl is safe and he's back to working with his flowers, plus his daughter and granddaughter are going to be visiting him (their perspective husbands were barely there to begin with, of course! :D).

I agree here with the ending and thought it was a pretty good one.  The usual Hollywood movie would show a montage of cartel members being rounded up in handcuffs and I always expect Clint to not do the norm.  The ending was what was going to happen to Earl and being caught probably saved his life down the road.

Maybe I missed it, but were any other cartel members busted when they got Earl?

If I remember correctly, I don't there the movie showed any cartel busts.  But maybe it was implied that it was just a matter of time....
