Hello everybody,
I found and read this interesting article on internet.
I think that it was originally published in 1989.
Its basically about the hero and America in some Clint Eastwood films.

Good day for a marathon, feeling run down and tired.  Sleeping off and on all day but making sure to eat, drink plenty of water and rest.  Hope this buggers gone by morning.

I watched it yesterday and initially thought it was fairly weak but after a night's sleep I regard it as better than that.

I am a huge Eastwood fan but if Clint hadn't been in the movie and they had found another older actor for his role, would people like the movie as much?

The film started off fairly much like Gran Torino in a way, the kindly old man with the beat up truck that he drives around. So I was thinking he was taking the Gran Torino theme and using it again.

But this is where Eastwood adds a strong element to his character by making him unsympathetic and relatively unlikeable.

Entering the driving business was interesting. Now he wasn't an idiot so he must have known he was running something highly illegal especially after meeting the bad guys in the garage but Earl is happily doing the job (doesn't ring true as the Korean Vet in Earl should have twigged to the problem). Yes he needed money but his sense of right and wrong was tested here and found wanting.  Showing that Earl always made the wrong decision with his work and his family priorities.

Then we see him change cars.Originally this didn't ring true to me as I would be thinking he would have used the money for something else (after all it was the only drive he was going to do, he changed his mind about this later when he saw the money could be put to a good purpose.) He said the old car gave up the ghost but I was wondering if he was feeling a bit superior now he had some real money and simply got himself a new expensive car, showing off a bit.

I would have liked to have seen more of what he did with the money, make his purpose on the driving more understandable. The family certainly took a liking to him once he started spending the dollars.

I will have to watch it again in the near future but The Mule didn't strike me like the classic Gran Torino did.

I was very pleased with The Greatest Showman.

I'm seeing Hugh Jackman's live show in August. 8)

I used to think the idea of watching the Academy Awards ceremony was a good idea.  Like Saturday Night Live, the program wore out its welcome and relevance decades ago.  It should be severely reduced in time, down to 90 minutes if not an hour.  Although the recipients are worthy of their awards, Im sure, there are way too many categories to justify an overblown, long and drawn out annual event.  Sitting through this show is as boring as viewing Star Trek: The Motion Picture and 2001: A Space Odyssey. 

I recorded the 2019 Oscars so I could skim through the boredom and decided to make note of all the fat I would trim.  As for the categories, I would eliminate 14 and keep 10.  For me, the ones Id cast out have little to no interest or relevance to showcase on a live, televised event.  The keepers are the most interesting that are the ones most people talk about year round. 

As for the other awards for the remaining categories presented at a previous date, well, eliminate mentioning them, too!  I see no justification in wasting air time on those.

Even with the presentations and performances, I believe it could still come in at 60-90 minutes and prove to be entertaining. 

What follows is the 2019 Oscars as televised in chronological order by event.  Y signifies my considering it relevant enough to keep, X signifies my desire to eliminate it.  I kept all of the performances and presentations.
