     Really good actress.

To be perfectly honest I didn't see this movie doing well at all. $81 mill at a domestic box office as of today is quite astounding considering the reviews which let's face it were lazy and predictable. The Mule including the eventual Box Office in Europe and etc in a few weeks will solidify this as a moneymaking hit for Eastwood. Like I always said the guy is the King Of Hollywood even If I was wrong about this movie's potential.

Watched Thunderbolt and Lightfoot. It's a shame Cimino and Eastwood never worked together again. Cimino wanted Eastwood to do a remake of The Fountainhead... Interesting.

Well Hocine, we are basically related..........

           The Mule will probably have to gross at least 100 mill @ the box office to break even. I don't see it. I would guess its not impossible if a good response overseas helps.

          David Philips blurb about Locke is absolutely 100% correct.

         Most of the reviewers are basically being told what to write and say since it's a PC realm and especially since Eastwood's speech at the Republican Convention years ago upset so many of those clowns. I read a review yesterday where they had to mention FOX news. So, it's basically a phony review... If you don't like the movie, fine...I've read already a half dozen reviews where it's their own personal political beliefs are put into review. 35 years ago at least Rex Reed gave his reasons for hating a Eastwood movie without going into a diatribe about politics.

          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.

36


     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.

39


          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.......
