General Discussion / Re: How does you screen name relate to CLINT?
« on: March 25, 2010, 12:50:04 PM »
No offense, and I did change my username a few years ago, but it was only once. I know there's no rule about changing your username, but seriously I hope this one is permanent. You're the only member I know ever that's changed his name at least four times in the last few months.

four times?!
i changed it three times - the original, real name doesn't count O0

It's cool.

How long will this name last though? :)

I think this will be permanent - going back to my roots. FAFDM was THE film that made me a Clintmaniac
i even bought a serape like the one in the film

but...... i reserve the right to change it agin if
I have a new article OR PROJECT  to plug (e.g. ALCATRAZ)

Unforgiven?

right.
but you would not confuse the the FAFDM character with Billy Munny.
I think Schickel possibly got Manco mixed up with another character Clint played around the same era.

A very impressive effort.
best part are the many photos that this eastwood fan has not seen before.
i love the stuff from THE WITCHES - Clint in Rome with his Ferrari O0
The text is good too. Schickel seems to have improved over the years in his analysis of Clint's films.
But, he still has a knack for making silly mistakes.
Example: he says the manco character from FAFDM is a "hired gun" and "potential bank robber"
Say what? ??? :-\
I can not think of a single film where Clint played a hired gun except for JOE KIDD(?) and he was a bank robber in THUNDERBOLT.

a literal translation from Italian puts the Ugly second!
i wonder what would have happened if the English kept that order.

The title GBU is so much a part of our language. Thom Hartman, a radio commentator uses it and practically every day someone in the media uses the phrase!!!!!!!!!!!!!

certainly when the Good title comes up on the screen it is meant to be deeply ironic
the audience always laughs

52
Glad to see the French recognized how good TORINO was!

think about it:
last year neither THE DARK NIGHT nor GRAN TORINO was nominated for Best Picture Oscar
yet
THE READER :o
&
FROST/NIXON (WTF!!!??? raise your hand if you saw this 'masterpiece'))

pathetic!

now i am going to retire to my studio and sing Le Marseilles O0

This topic was in the General Discussion Forum, but we've moved it down here to the Off Topic forum so anyone can use it to name their favorites or post any of the various Internet polls or lists you come across.

well Kid, if the news that Magnificent Stranger named Gran Torino the second best film of the decade
does not qualify as a major  "Eastwood Discussion' item.... i don't know what does! ::) ;)

any word on how it is doing overseas?
I suspect it will be more popular at the box-office there, than it has been in the USA.

England, for example is probably crazier about rugby than soccer!

Is there a way to get a list other than by e-mailing you, Stranger?

I am working on getting it all listed here.
