Matt: Which of the following scenarios would be the least pleasing to you?
a) Clint Eastwood reveals that he'll star in his upcoming Neil Armstrong biopic ... and that it'll be a musical!
b) Warner Bros. announces that, in an effort to cash in on the lastest buddy cop craze (see Harrison Ford & Josh Hartnett) it has signed Charlie Sheen and Clint Eastwood to star in The Rookie 2!
c) In an exclusive interview, Michael Cimino admits once and for all that there IS a homosexual subtext in Thunderbolt and Lightfoot!
d) Variety leaks the news that Eastwood's yet-to-be-titled next project will not only costar Wanda DeJesus and Paul Rodriguez, but -- in a stunning turn of events -- will reunite Eastwood onscreen with his former girlfriend/costar/nemesis Sandra Locke!

mgk: How (and why) do you rank the three films Eastwood has directed but not appeared in (Breezy, Bird, and Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil)?

Breezy is a nice little love story, albeit a little unusual and definitely dated because Edith Alice Breezerman ('Breezy') is a "flower child" of the 1970s.  Bird is probably one of the best movies Eastwood has made and it is certainly gripping in its details of Charlie Parker's self-destructive lifestyle but, therefore, somewhat depressing.  Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil is so unique and so full of some of the most colorful characters in any Eastwood film, that I'm going to have to choose "Midnight" as the one I like the best.  One of the measuring sticks that I use when I choose favorites or make lists is whether I'm willing to watch it over and over and Lady Chablis is well worth watching repeatedly.  What a character!!  John Cusak's performance is good as well as Kevin Spacey's performance.

I would probably list Bird as second and put Breezy at third.

Which would you choose?

I would take the hour with the man. I have a lot of questions for him and anyone with money and time can purchase stuff. Not everyone can say then had a sit down chat with Eastwood!  ;D

Do you agree that it's his most regrettable film, and if so, would you say so?
Eastwood speaking:
"You know, the only movie I really regret making is Paint Your Wagon".

I would tend to agree with him on this. While all his movies are superb, only this movie falls short of the usual unmatched quality. A good cast and humorous script are the only things that kept this movie from being a total disaster. He was big enough at the time that there was no need make this film. The only reason I can think of would be the chance to star next to Lee Marvin and venture out with his musical career.

John has only seen part of the Gauntlet and has based his entire opinion on that movie. One night he gives in and agrees to watching an Eastwood movie of your choosing. Which movie do you pick to watch and why?

bcm: How did you become an Eastwood fan?

I'm sorry, but this will need a little time to explain. So, those not interested, please go on  :)
As KC, I don't watch TV, in fact I don't even have one. When I was younger my former boy-friend and I would go to the cinema very often. (We actually saw Unforgiven in the theater, and we liked it a lot. Westerns are not part of my cultural background, so it wasn't this movie that made me become interested in Eastwood).  But, such is life, my husband doesn't like going to the movies. And so, for several years, due to kids, work, etc. I have missed a LOT of films (which bothered me). Last fall we purchased a computer with DVD, then I discovered an internet DVD rental, and started watching all these movies I had missed on the computer screen. I didn't know what I was doing when I rented Bridges of Madison County. I only knew that my friends had liked it, which was unusual for a lovestory coming from Hollywood ;). That movie went right into my heart. I know everything Francesca was talking about, and I also know that such an intense lovestory cannot last... It was the first movie in my life that I wanted to watch over and over again, so I purchased my first DVD (december 2002 ;D). And I went on internet to find out more about a man who would tell a story like that... And now I'm here, having a great time with all of you!!

bcm: I'm going to give you a tag inspired by one MC gave me ... Name one European-born actor (either gender) you'd like to see Clint work with. It can be as a co-star or in a film Eastwood is directing only. Where would the film be set—in the U.S. or in the actor's native country?
If I wanted to make Matt jump, I could name Arnold Schwarzeneegger  ;D  ;D But I wont, sorry Brendan.
Back in my childhood, when I did watch TV sometimes, we loved Jean-Paul Belmondo, called Bebel over here. He was, I think, the most beloved french "action hero", not hesitating to make fun of himself. He was also known for performing all his stunts himself (do I know that from someone else...) Since Eastwood and Belmondo have some similarities, I'd like to see them together, as a co-star. But the movie would, of course  ;), be set in France.

This is Jean-Paul Belmondo

Does this filmposter look somewhat familiar  :)

Gant:What was it, about Firefox, that made you choose your name and avatar?
Brendan:name 5 qualities  Eastwood has, that Schwarzenegger doesn't have  ;)
Clyde:If you could choose any item in any Eastwood movie to own, which would it be? And why?

I didn't have to think too hard on this one. The only logical choice for me would be to bring my dad along. My dad watched Rawhide as a kid. I don't know when he became a big fan of Eastwood's, but he's always liked westerns pretty well. When I was little, I can remember my dad watching Eastwood movies on TV (I remember watching Sudden Impact on TV as a family. Talk about odd, huh? I was about five).

Brendan:name 5 qualities  Eastwood has, that Schwarzenegger doesn't have  ;)

How do you mean? In movies wise or outside of movies wise? Becuase Arnold is good man outside of his movies. He's also a very smart, and highly educated man. He's also a good business man. He also cares not only about the good upbringing of his children, but other less fortunate kids as well.

He also setups programs for mentally handicapped athletes, and he also helped create the Arnold Classic which is a competition to give body builders recognition they wouldnt get any where else.

He's a great man, but unfortuantly most people are jaded and just see him as Arnold the guy with big muscles who cant speak english properly.

If you mean movies wise, then Clint is definitely a better actor, theres no contest there. Clint also has the ability to direct good pictures, while Arnold doesnt care too, although has directed before.

I suppose someone else could answer this question better than I can, but I cant really see any qualities they both dont share. I'm not trying to compare the two and say one is better than the other, by all means I beleive Clint is better at the movie aspect, but I have no comment on the outside of the movies issue. They both do good things, that help other people and they both stand up for what they believe in.

Sorry I couldnt answer the question any better.  :-\


Sorry no new tags from me. I'll just re-post some unanswered ones:

Cal - What movie made in the 1990's do you think Clint would have been great for? (In a starring or supporting role)

bdc28: If Clint was approached to played Gil Grissom on CSI, and he accepted, do you think he would be as good as William Peterson?

Lilly: If Clint only has ONE more acting movie left in him, what do you want the type of film to be?

Daisy: If Clint had played any character in any of the Star Trek series or movies, whether it be a guest starring or starring role, which character do you think he could play?

Matt: I'll reverse the baseball question. You're managing the Yankees and you're trailing by a run in the bottom of the ninth. You have men on second and third and two out ... what character from an Eastwood film (doesn't have to be played by Clint) do you send in as a pinch hitter to get the win? (And you want a win ... Mo is tired.) And how does he get it?

After quite a bit of deliberation, I settled on Harry Callahan!  First reason... you can always rely on Harry to get the job done.  He never lets you down.  Second reason... he's used to the pressure.  This situation wouldn't even phase him.  :)

This is how he'd do it... he'd wait for a fastball down the middle, aim and fire...  a comebacker right at the pitcher! :o  The pitcher would go down, and there would be just enough confusion and hysteria for the infielders to forget about the baserunners.  The man on third scores, and as Harry ambles down the first base line, the man on second crosses the plate.  All safe!  The YANKEES WIN.  THUUUUU YANKEES WIN!!!

In the postgame interview, Harry says "That's why they call me Dirty Harry.  Every dirty job that comes along."  ;D

MATT: Youre in a video store, and they have this huge screen tv, and for some reason, theyre playing "Paint your wagon" on it.You stare for a couple of seconds, amused, and then someone taps on your shoulder. you turn around-it's clint!!!! He goes "Hi, do you like the movie?" What do you answer matt? Do you compliment him on it to flatter him, or do you tell him the movie sucked??? (Maybe you could tell him "the 3 reasons why pardner is god" thing)

Misty, you're giving me too much credit.  I doubt I'd be able to put two words together in that situation.  

Believe me when I say that if I had an opportunity to talk to Clint, the last thing that would come out of my mouth would be a criticism of anything he's done.  Especially since I'd be a blubbering idiot at the time... what a joke that would be.

If somehow I could speak in this situation, I'd probably say "You've done better, Clint."

c) In an exclusive interview, Michael Cimino admits once and for all that there IS a homosexual subtext in Thunderbolt and Lightfoot!
d) Variety leaks the news that Eastwood's yet-to-be-titled next project will not only costar Wanda DeJesus and Paul Rodriguez, but -- in a stunning turn of events -- will reunite Eastwood onscreen with his former girlfriend/costar/nemesis Sandra Locke!

"C" isn't actually a bad thing at all.  I'd LOVE to hear Cimino discuss Thunderbolt and Lightfoot, and if he said there was homosexual subtext, then I'd expect that he'd give some details to that and discuss it.  Which would have to disqualify once and for all most of the outlandish examples that were cited in the "T&L" thread.  

So that leaves me with three choices.  Of these, "B" is the least horrible.  Maybe the Rookie sequel would be better than the first.  I doubt the casting could be worse this time around.  

As for "D"...  Sondra Locke's performances in Eastwood films were always fine to good, but if he chose to work with her again, I'd really have to wonder if Clint had lost his mind.  De Jesus and Rodriquez too?  Ouch... :-[

But the least pleasing of these scenarios would be to see a biopic of Neil Armstrong made as a musical, and for Clint to be involved in it.  I can see it now... Neil takes a step onto the moon and the crew breaks into song and dance! "One small step for man.... bop a bop bop... one giant leap for mankind.... doo wop a bop!"

Interesting question, MC. ;)

Here you go KC: (special thanks to Matt for his Quotes Webpage)

1. A Fistful of Dollars - JOE: No. See, I understand you men were just playin' around. But the mule, he just doesn't get it. Of course, if you were to all apologize.

2. GBU - BLONDIE: (Takes the note) "Idiots". (Hands the note back to Tuco) It's for you.

3. Dirty Harry - HARRY: Well for the past three quarters of an hour I've been sitting on my ass in your outer office waiting on you.

4. Magnum Force - CALLAHAN: Tell you something. If the rest of you could shoot like them, I wouldn't care if the whole damn department was queer.

5. The Gauntlet - SHOCKLEY: Nag, nag, nag!

6. Sudden Impact - CALLAHAN: Listen, punk... to me you ain't nothing but dog sh*t, you understand? And a lot of things can happen to dog sh*t. It can be scraped up with a shovel off the ground, it can dry up and blow away in the wind, or it can be stepped on and squashed. So take my advice and be careful where the dog sh*ts ya.

7. Heartbreak Ridge - GUNNY: The Marines are looking for a few good men. Unfortunately, you ain't it.

8. Pink Cadillac - NOWAK: (Wearing the gold jacket) Too much raw dude for ya, huh babe? Well I can dig it. If my life were a movie, there'd be a sign on it saying "Caution, some scenes too intense for younger viewers."

9. Unforgiven - MUNNY: Whoa! Whoa, God damn! You no good pig f*cking whore! Whoa! (finally gets on the horse) Sorry old horse!

10. Space Cowboys - FRANK: Let's see, I had vegetarian huevos rancheros, egg whites only, of course. Then some sort of a filtered decaf cappuccino that tasted like it was filtered through a jock strap.

And these ones from Oddball and Lilly always get me:

ODDBALL: Why don't you knock it off with the negative waves Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here. Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

LILLY RAINES: Hmm, and the field agents get older and older.

CONAN:  Which character from an Eastwood film would you say is most like you?  What traits do you have in common?  (It doesn't have to be an Eastwood character)

BAGGIEB:  We haven't seen much of you since the board move.  I hope you're still checking in on us from time to time, and hope you can join in more again soon.  For your question...  You are in an elevator, it stops on the third floor and Sondra Locke steps in and presses the button.  The next stop is over 20 floors away and you're the only two in the elevator.  What kind of conversation, if any, can you imagine you'd strike up?

BCM:   Image Clint is in your town and you ran into him in a drugstore... buying something for an upset stomach.  He looks horrible, and you strike up conversation and find out that eating out in restaurants hasn't agreed with him, and he'd give anything for a home-cooked meal.  Jumping at the chance, you invite him to your home.  You want to make him something that will not only make him feel good and healthy again, but you want to dazzle him and make a meal for him he'll never forget.  What's on the menu?

NATURAL BORN COWGIRL (NBC):  Has BDC made you a big Eastwood fan yet?  Which Eastwood film did you enjoy the most?  Which the least?

Matt,

As tough of a question as it may be...I would improve the GBU in the following ways.  First off, I would restore all the spanish language to the film (I know already done on TV, but not for us to enjoy on DVD yet).  I would also have expanded on the Lee Van Cleef story of "Angel Eyes".  What motivates him?  There is a pretty clear motivation for Clint's and Tuco's characters and that would solidify the story for me.

My sentiments exactly!  When watching The Restored GBU on AMC, I was glad to have a few extra Angel Eyes scenes, but even then, he still got the short end of the stick between the three characters.  Some expansion of his character and story would have only helped the film.  

Thanks for answering the question, jjgonski, and I hope you'll tag two members to keep things moving.  :)

Philo:What five Eastwood films would you choose that would illustrate the scope of Eastwood's films?

1) A fistful of dollars (a good place to start)
2) The Beguiled (a brave move)
3) Dirty Harry (has to be here)
4) The outlaw Josey Wales (behind the camera)
5) Every which way but loose (totally different direction)


I could have done with 10 , however these are good films from a time when he still had things to prove.
