I'm pretty busy, but it's computer work, so I think I could squeeze in a game. Especially since I already have "got one." ;)

Thanks, Aline! I'm glad you finally got to see it! :)

It HAS been a long time, but thanks for the information! :)

Where does this come from? The only cartel guy that was "friendly" to Earl was Laton, and that was just because he was making him obscene amounts of money and was so old that he was largely not on most of the cops radar for most of the film. It seems like he was watching a different movie than I was!

I got the feeling they were mostly friendly, in a swaggering sort of way. And why not? Earl is making them money. I've only seen it once, though, so maybe I'm misremembering.

I thought this passage in the review (by Camille Nevers) in Libération was a bit strange:

Quote
Cette mort chez Eastwood est une première. Lui qui s’est filmé mourir tant de fois, regardé souffrir et disparaître. Cette fois, c’est lui l’homme allongé de côté sur le lit, avec cet air un peu incrédule un peu remonté qu’on lui connaît : c’est l’autre qui meurt, et cet air sceptique rend alors un autre son - l’étonnement que ce ne soit pas lui.

Translation:

Quote
This death [of Earl's ex-wife] is a first for an Eastwood film. He has filmed himself dying so many times, observed himself suffering and perishing, but this time, he is the man stretched out on his side on the bed, with his familiar slightly incredulous, slightly annoyed expression: it's the other one who is dying, and his skeptical expression has another overtone: astonishment that it's not him.

If I'm not mistaken, Eastwood only "films himself dying" in two films: Honkytonk Man and Grand Torino. A good review, anyway.

Cold Pursuit is one of my favorite Liam Neeson movies. It's darkly humorous and very violent. As the end credits started to roll I thought how I wouldn't mind going to see it again sometime here. And in the credits I noticed the name Emmy Rossum, which is a name I recognized because of Mystic River.

I saw the original Norwegian film a few years back, starring the excellent Swedish actor Stellan Skarsgård. The Norwegian title was the rather lame Kraftidioten (meaning something like Super Idiot), but the English release title was the much cleverer In Order of Disappearance.

From what I recall of the Norwegian film, Neeson is an excellent choice to play the "disappearer."

I don't think there's an odds-on favorite (no pun intended) for Best Picture. The other major awards have been sort of all over the place.

Of the Best Picture nominees, I've only seen Roma. I really liked it, but I don't suppose it has much of a chance. Has a foreign-language film ever won Best Picture? Besides, this one is distributed by Netflix (a strike against it in purists' eyes) and has had a rather limited release in theaters (where I saw it, and where I think it probably is seen to its best advantage). But I heard it just won the BAFTA for Best Film (and Cuarón got the award for Best Director, as well), so ... who knows.

I see most French critics give it the equivalent of four or five stars:

Clint did the cover of French magazine Les Cahiers du Cinéma in the issue of February 2019.
This is the first time since the issue of January 2012 for J. Edgar.
Some good articles are written about The Mule.
The review is very positive.

Very nice!

It was definitely fun. I should have chosen something from "The Mule," given that's what we're celebrating today, and then make it super difficult, so that knowing the film would lull you into a false sense of security!

We could keep the party going by playing another round soon, and make The Mule the film from the get-go. It would still be pretty hard since we wouldn't have the DVD to check (and I've only seen it once).

Not tonight though, I have too much work to do. :o

So, out of interest, does Frank ever touch the PAM rockets?

I would say offhand no, but I'd have to watch those scenes again.

That fruit tart looks yummy! And I'm sure Matt will love it too ... if you put enough whipped cream on top! :D

You're being generous, since I wasn't thinking that Frank touched parts of the satellite. But can anyone wearing a space suit really be said to "touch" anything? ???

I don't think I've watched this one for fifteen years. Did we ever do it for Movie Night?

I just saw this -- and yeah (except for the couple of extra years you added), it's amazing achievement.  We should celebrate with some Moscow Mules!  Cheers to Clint! 


Skål!
