Eastwood News / Eastwood at Michael Douglas Golf Tournemant
« on: May 20, 2003, 12:18:21 PM »
From Yahoo!:


Quote
Actor/director Clint Eastwood arrives at the Lexus $1 million hole-in-one shootout during the 5th annual Michael Douglas & Friends Celebrity Golf Tournament at the Cascata Golf Course in Boulder City, Nevada, May 18, 2003. No one made the hole-in-one which would have won a $1 million donation from Lexus to the Motion Picture & Television Fund. The event will air on ABC Sports on July 20, 2003. It was the first time for public access to the exclusive 450-acre private course owned by Park Place Entertainment.

Hopefully I'll remember to watch it.  8)

Clint Eastwood Westerns / Goofs in For A Few Dollars More
« on: May 16, 2003, 09:25:37 PM »
Over at the IMDB, it has this listed in the goofs section:

Quote
During gunfight at the climax of the movie, automobiles can be seen driving on a highway in the background.

During the opening scene when mortimer lowers the bible that he was reading in the train, in the background, you can see a fast moving vehicle driving down a dirt road.

Can anyone see these?

Exclusive Photos from Mystic River

Clint Eastwood, Sean Penn, Lawrence Fishburne, Kevin Bacon and Tim Robbins.
 
April 14, 2003 - Director Clint Eastwood told The New Yorker magazine: "Mystic River centers on three working-class friends: Jimmy, played by Sean Penn; Dave, by Tim Robbins; and Sean, by Kevin Bacon – and how their lives have been haunted by an incident of sexual abuse in the past. There are so many characters, and the story weaves back and forth in time." In the present, the action takes place in South Boston (where Eastwood and Co. filmed for two months last year). That's where Jimmy (Penn) discovers the body of a murdered young woman – and how it connects to his and his friend's past.

Eastwood doesn't appear in the film; a rare situation for him. But he's selected a top-notch cast. Joining Penn, Bacon, and Robbins is Lawrence Fishburne (The Matrix, Once In The Life), Marcia Gay Harden (Pollack, Space Cowboys), Laura Linney (The Mothman Prophecies, You Can Count On Me). Brian Helgeland (L.A. Confidential) wrote the screenplay which is based on the novel by Dennis Lehane.

At present Mystic River has an October 3rd release date. But that of course is subject to change.

Questions & Answers / Springsteen & Pink Cadillac
« on: April 14, 2003, 06:28:51 PM »
Hey I just heard a Bruce Springsteen song called 'Pink Cadillac'. Any idea if it was in Clint's 'Pink Cadillac'? I just saw this movie a few days ago, but I wasnt paying attention to the music.

Also, the IMDB doesnt have a soundtrack listing for the movie.

Just wondering. ;) :)

General Discussion / How did everyone come to like Clint Eastwood?
« on: April 11, 2003, 08:02:42 PM »
I remember I was talking with my mom, and I asked her who her favourite actor was. She said it was Clint Eastwood. At the time I must've been 6 or 7, so I had no clue who this guy was.

I remember seeing 'Unforgiven' when I was 8, actually all I can remember is the shot of Eastwoods eyes at the end, after Little Bill says 'see you in hell.' I suppose the movie shouldnt be viewed by an 8 year old, but dont get the wrong impression about my parents, they were there with me and they knew I wouldnt understand what was going on... they were right. Just to clarify, it didnt 'scare me' for me life... at least not that I know of...

But anyways, I cant exactly remember what sparked me to start watching Eastwood movies. Maybe it was when we rented 'In the Line of Fire'.

That blew my away.

But it wasnt until I was 13 that I started renting two Eastwood movies almost every weekend for a year. I came across this site a long time ago, and printed out his filmography and highlighted the ones I saw. I've since lost that sheet, wish I hadnt but oh well.

I eventually stopped renting the movies, and thats why theres a select few I havent seen.

During my renting of his movies stage, Absolute Power came to theatres. My mom asked me if I wanted to go, and I jumped at the oppurtunity. Absolute Power was my first Eastwood movie I saw on the big screen. Thats why it holds special place in my heart.

Since then I've seen every Eastwood movie in theatres except Space Cowboys.

Im glad I had that talk with my mom, and Im glad Im a Clint Eastwood fan.

Wow, sorry for the little 'biography' there, but Im just curious as to how some of you came to like Eastwood.

Was it through a friend? Parent? Just becuase he rocks?

Collectors' Corner / Unforgiven DVD for sale
« on: March 18, 2003, 08:08:22 PM »
Well since I just bought the new special edition of 'Unforgiven', Im looking to get rid of my old one.

Its in great condition, both the case and DVD. Its pretty much featureless, and it has both Widescreen and Pan & Scan (Full Frame) versions on it.

I'll hold onto it for awhile, if no one wants it I'll simply sell off to a movie store here.

I'd say $10? Or whatever you think is good, that I can agree on.

General Discussion / The Bridges of Madison County
« on: March 04, 2003, 06:44:09 PM »
I wish I couldve seen this movie earlier so I couldve partcipated in the film disucussion, but incidents occured and I didnt get around to seeing it in time.

However, today I sat down and watched it for the first... well second time. I saw half, maybe one quarter, of the movie a few years ago but turned it off for reasons I cant remember.

Let me say... wow. Wow, what a great movie. I wish I saw it earlier. The performances, the story, the direction, everything!! Easily one of Clints best.

My favourite scene is probably at the end when Clint is standing in the rain and him and Francesca are just looking at each other. I've never seen Clint use a rain sequence like that before and it was a very great scene. Lots of emotion involved and it brought tear to me eye. (Im not ashamed to admit that.)

I can also understand why Michael would be mad with his mom. If you think about it, Michael and his sisters life have been sort of based around a lie. Its hard for me to put myself in his shoes and decide whether or not I could forgive my mom for what she did. Its a hard decision that cant be rightfully thought about unless it actually happens.

Its nice though, that Michael can learn from this event and make his marriage better for him and his wife.

And the what if, possibility. What if Francesca left her family for Robert and left a note saying, 'bye, I met another guy so long, take care.'

Would she really have been happy with Robert? She would never see her kids again or the man she has spent most of her life with and who loves her alot. And could her kids ever forgive her for ditching them for some other man?

Robert was the kind of man, Im assuming, that she always wanted. He;s a guy who cares about her, he listens to her, talks with her and helps out. He's good looking and built.

I can see why she would fall in love with Robert, with the way her life is and how bored she seems with it, but could he really make her happy or wouldve it just been a little fling?

And heres another question, is Robert a bad guy? He knows she has kids and has a husband, but he continues to try and be with her and trys to get her to come with him. Wouldnt this ruin her familys life if she did? Does that make a Robert a bad man? Or a good man for giving her the oppurtunity to come into a new life and enjoy it?

FROM MGK - on February 02, 2003, 11:04:14 PM

Is it better to have loved and lost, or to never have loved at all?

I must say its probably best to have never loved at all. Why put yourself through the torture of thinking about the person you once loved, or still do, for the rest of your life? Realizing everyday that it couldve been differant, possibly even regreting it so much, you hate yourself for not stepping up to the plate and going with the oppurtunity? Its not a healthy way to live and I, personally, would have rather never loved. I wouldnt want to live my life with the thought of loving someone but lossing them for a specific reason.

I didnt think I'd enjoy 'Bridges' as much as I did, becuase its not the usual Clint, but it was nice to see him do something way off the radar. Im glad Clint did this movie. Thank you Clint.

General Discussion / Clint Best Performance
« on: February 22, 2003, 10:02:51 AM »
Im not sure if this topic has already been made, but I've always wondered this. What is Clints best performance? Everyone probably has differant answers as to where his best performance is, but say it anyway.

Im curious as to where everyone thinks Clint has given his best performance.

I've got a few movies where I think he did really well. Unforgiven, Dirty Harry, Heartbreak Ridge, A Fistful of Dollars and The Outlaw Josey Wales.

If I had to decide, I'd have to go with Unforgiven, probably just because its a killer performance. It seems to me that when I watch the movie, its showing that he put alot of effort into this part. The moment when hes shaving and getting ready to return to his old roots, and he looks out the window. No words, just facial expression. Amazing!! The part in the barn after he was beaten was another good spot, and so was the part where he was talking with the kid about killing a man. But my favourite part is the end, when hes back to being a cold blooded killer. You can see the fire in his eyes and hatred burning on his face.

The transformation of his character was very well done. I really dont know why he didnt get the Oscar.

New Book Looks at Americans with Disabilities Act, Foley's Efforts
Thu Feb 13,11:59 AM ET  

LOUISVILLE, Ky., Feb. 13 /U.S. Newswire/ -- Rep. Mark Foley's (R-Fla.) attempt to amend the 1990 Americans with Disabilities Act -- and how and why it failed in 2000 -- forms the backdrop of the new book, "Make Them Go Away: Clint Eastwood, Christopher Reeve and The Case Against Disability Rights" from longtime disability rights journalist Mary Johnson. Foley has recently announced another effort to require 90 days' notice before filing suit under the law.

Foley's campaign the last time involved actor Clint Eastwood, who lost much of his legal fight over access at his resort. "Eastwood simply lied about things," says Johnson.

The 1990 law, Johnson says, "is still widely ignored in most communities." Wheelchair users remain barred from restaurants, fitness centers and shops in established neighborhoods -- "and anyone who brings up suing for access is vilified." Yet, she adds, echoing a theme of Foley's and Eastood's three years ago, "everyone's quick to say they just want to help the disabled."


"Everyone cares for disabled people, right? What they don't care for are genuine civil rights for disabled people," says The Nation's William Greider. In "Make Them Go Away," "Mary Johnson tells the tortuous, enraging story of how Congress enacted a law that instead of protecting against discrimination has turned 'the disabled' into a political punching bag."

Johnson has covered disability rights for over two decades as editor of The Disability Rag and Ragged Edge magazines.

More about "Make Them Go Away: Clint Eastwood, Christopher Reeve and The Case Against Disability Rights" is available at http://www.makethemgoaway.com or from http://www.advocadopress.org.

The book can be ordered from these websites or through amazon.com, Barnes and Noble or though bookstores. (Publication date is Mar. 3.)

For interviews, email office@advocadopress.org or call 502-894-9492.

The Advocado Press (Louisville, Ky.) has been publishing books and periodicals on the disability experience since 1981. "Make Them Go Away" is the fourth in its series on U.S. disability rights laws and activism. Other books in the series include "People with Disabilities Explain It All For You: Your Guide to the Public Accommodations Requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act," "Education Rights of Children With Disabilities: A Revised & Updated Primer for Advocates" (with the national Center on Law and Education) and "To Ride the Public's Buses: The Fight that Built A Movement."
