#7  Yes, one of them brings it with them on the trip! :)

Is that a question? I think I won't answer that.

BUT WAIT.... it's not European, but it IS shown in the European scenes!

#6 It's not European.

I suppose we can go to 12.  8)

Getting it in 9 would be an extra great score.


EDIT: I said "actors," but you know what I mean.

 ;D ;D ;D  I missed playing these live games with you.

#5, it's the grown ups.

#4  Yes, at least one does! :)

#3  Nope, not a vehicle.

Looking through the thread, it looks like there isn't a condensed game here after all. It looks like the movie name usually takes 6 questions, so.... the condensed version will be only 9 questions. Good luck!

#2  Wouldn't fit in a breadbox.

I"ll give a gander around and see if I can find the # of questions for condensed games.

#1   Yes, it is!

(KC needs to chime in here with the condensed game rules... I think y'all started doing condensed games (Less than 15 Questions) during my absence.)

Happy birthday, Clint. I tried to get you a present, but this guy in front of me got the last one.

Agreed. C'mon Rookie is an acting masterpiece compared to this.

Okay, I've got one. What are the rules for a condensed game? The movie is 15:17 to Paris. How many questions do we give when we start with the movie name?  And go.....


I thought the three leads themselves were also fine. Their dialogue however was not. A terrible script in my opinion and it was the words they said, not how they said it, which came across so poorly.

As I was watching, I kept thinking it was just awful dialogue. But it really made me wonder if professional actors wouldn't have made that awful dialogue sound believable and natural.

I just finally saw this tonight. Honestly, I didn't like it. When it comes to the trio of movies that Cint has made recently about ordinary American men in extraordinary circumstances doing heroic things, this was a much lessor effort than Sully and American Sniper. I'm going to agree with Perry that this feels like an HBO movie, or a Netflix original. Too bad, but now at least it's good to know we have something else to look forward to with The Mule.

Rating:  4/10.  Best part:  The Venetian restaurant scenery. I want to go there now. Worst:  The endless selfies, just ridiculous.

Yes, mules factor in prominantly in his career, even so-called mules (actually, The Mule is a so-called mule as well).  ;)

I notice that the logline which is provided that describes the film states that Eastwood will be playing Earl Stone and not, as thought before, Leo Sharp. So although this film may be based on Sharp's experiences, it sounds like this may be heavily fictionalized, which may give them more creative freedom and allow for this to feel more like an original rather than an entirely fact-based story.

I'm getting more enthused about this project. It's a pretty cool bookend to Clint's first starring role, which also featured a mule in what might be the scene that kicked off his career. Of course, that's only if this winds up being Clint's last performance. And, Clint isn't showing signs of slowing down yet.

I guess I can agree with that. I think Pacino does these types of characters as well as Clint does his types of characters.

Weighing in on True Crime, I actually really love this performance and film. And Clint wasn't too old to be a womanizer -- that's something you don't grow out of (so I hear) ;).  And Bob's wife wasn't into Everett anyway -- she was just trying to get Bob's attention. So it works.

Looking good, Jed.  I haven't traveled anywhere lately to do any special photography. But, there's so much to photograph without even leaving town. I photographed the birds in my front porch nest every morning to see the changes each day brings. They left the nest this morning. I had just taken this last one yesterday -- testing the wings.

Now that they're gone, I was going to pull the nest down and clean that area. But, a friend said the breeding Finches may not be done for the season, so I'll hold off until Fall.

Serious question -- is Clint considered a "mediocre actor" by these people who we're talking about?  Is Tommy Lee Jones really considered a better actor?  I'd say Pacino and Nicholson may be a little more respected as actors overall, but maybe they'd be considered more First Tier, and Clint might be First Tier or Second Tier to most people, but "mediocre" is a whole Tier or two below that.  Nicholson has really wide range. Pacino wasn't always bombastic, was he? I think he was more nuanced before Scent of a Woman. I enjoy the hell out of Pacino performances though.

As for the rest of your post, I agree with it, and you've managed to put into words pretty well how I feel.

So, let me get this straight, Matt, part of your strategy to convince this person that they were wrong and that Clint Eastwood is a better actor than they think is to agree with their statement. Boy, how I wish I had you as my opponent when I was doing my speech and debate tournaments years ago!

Well, there is an Eastwood-type character. So there is some truth to that, and it's dishonest to pretend that it's not true. So, if I was debating, I would give in on that point. But, I'd add (which I think I did) that it's not because he can't do other roles, it's because he's been more attracted to these types of roles. I think when Clint steps out of the mold and does the other types of characters, that he's been great. So I think that debunks the argument that he can't do other characters, or that he hasn't done other types of characters. So I think that's how I'd answer that in an actual debate-- not that he can't do other roles, just that he is more attracted to these certain types of roles.
