          I probably vilified Locke more than anyone in here. I never thought she was the right actress in all of Eastwood's movies except for The Gauntlet which she was terrific in. I just felt Eastwood's movies suffered with her miscasting- especially Bronco Billy.

Hocine, Gran Torino to me is a top 5 movie of Clint's career as far as I'm concerned. I did like Sniper very much. That's about it for the decade since 2008. My tastes run very different from most in here. I'm not as enamored with Unforgiven as just about every one else is and that's fine. My point is I just haven't cared for the movies Eastwood has been involved with since 2008 and neither has an audience outside of Sniper.....

       AKA23...... For some reason after Gran Torino I have not liked any of Eastwood's movies. 15:17 really did it for me. I shut the movie off after 40 minutes. The Mule from what I read, even the positive reviews seems like a retread of other performances from the past and the movie doesn't parallel the real story. So, whats the point?....

     Some of the negative reviews I've read are pretty much the PC knuckleheads who couldn't wait to make a political point and it's laughable. You saw some of that with Gran Torino, but they've pretty much raised their artillery for this movie. I was surprised Newsday liked the picture. They never liked anything Eastwood did. Will i go see the movie? Probably not.


     I could care less what anyone's opinion in on this upcoming movie. I'm just hoping for a good movie to go see for my own personal enjoyment. At this point anything would be better than 15:17 To Paris or Trouble With The Curve.

 The Witches


 That's even more of a reason not to care.


          At this point after all these years do I really care what Newsweek thinks in any capacity?

It's interesting, I've seen that Mule trailer about 10 times already. That's got to be Eastwood tapping on the piano.......

               Tremendous trailer.... I don't think I've ever seen Eastwood look so vulnerable........


              Eastwood made a movie that is quite rare where the movie surpasses the book.


             Where Eagles Dare is one of the great WW2 movies and a great adaption from the book. Too bad Eastwood and Burton never worked again. Kelly's Heroes is a pretty decent movie. I've read that Eastwood wasn't happy with the movie. Something about there was a great deal of footage that was edited from the final film that explained in more detail of his character and the story line....Heartbreak Ridge I liked when it came out, but not too much anymore. Mario Pebbles over acting is annoying after 30 minutes. The movie loses steam after about an hour.

                  AKA, my reasons for Eastwood's failure @ the box office lately is exactly what you expound on. You are 100% right on.  It's certainly not because I think Eastwood is in a full throttle demise or the fact his movies have been horrid. (Though I absolutely hated The Hereafter and still think it's one of his biggest mistakes) . On the contrary, I still think he has much to contribute and like yourself I hope The Mule is a bona fide hit. But @ the same time as much as I don't count him out I certainly realize the man is 88 and I don't expect 'White Hunter Black Heart' or 'Thunderbolt and Lightfoot' anymore. It's just not logical, but you have people still waiting for him to do another Dirty Harry which is beyond even reacting to. It's moronic. As far as the political aspects. Hollywood has always been political. Hollywood ostracized Eastwood 40-50 years ago and all of a sudden they started to respect the man. I doubt Eastwood ever cared anyway except always to make a good movie that people would see. I don't think that's ever changed. I just think the times and audience has just like you said........ The only thing that hasn't changed is Robert Redford and Costner still can't act.


Best parts of The Enforcer are Eastwood's scenes with Albert Popwell.

        Outside of 'American Sniper' none of Eastwood's movies have been box office hits. His last bona fide box office hit was Gran Torino which he starred in. I do agree that the speech probably didn't hurt Eastwood to the magnitude some may think....You have to take into consideration that Eastwood isn't in his prime anymore and Hollywood has become a panorama of stupidity with the type of movies they maker today and the useless phony rhetoric they try to sell. Hollywood always had their favorites anyway. It's all a bunch of crap..I mean you have to laugh when Hollywood gives George Clooney a 'Lifetime Achievement Award'...For what????...His only achievement is being a puppet.

Redford was always Hollywood's Golden Boy and a truly overrated boring actor. Yeah, ok he was a nice looking guy and he did a nice job directing Ordinary People, but Eastwood don't need him. It it wasn't for Paul Newman, Redford would had been a Forest Ranger in Utah.

 The Longest Yard and Starting Over were good movies that are worthy, but Reynolds really did a magnitude of crappy films. A lot of people liked Sharky's Machine... Reynolds box office appeal plummeted by the mid 80's....City Heat was ridiculous.

       AKA,  If you were going to watch any movie it would probably be Deliverance from 1972. Extremely disturbing and well acted movie about a canoe trip that goes wrong. Great ensemble cast with Jon Voight and Ned Beatty and an unforgettable Bill Mckinney in one of the most scariest roles that still haunts 46 years later.....
