City Heat

Should have been a much better film. I mean Clint and Burt both in the same film. It does have a few good moments and action scenes. But overall not really a great film. Kind of boring at times. One of the weaker Eastwood films. Which there are very very few weak Eastwood films.

Million dollar baby

This is a very good movie. I enjoyed it as always. However the ending is the most disturbing ending for me out of all the endings of an Eastwood movie. It's just so realistic to life. She's winning and at the top of the mountain then next thing she's in the hospital. Plus it makes you feel bad the way her family treated her. But yeah for me watching the ending is pretty much unbearable.

Yeah I hear yeah perry. Not a big fan of hers either. But the ending of million dollar baby has always bothered me. It's just really depressing for me to watch that part. Rest of the movie is great though.

Million Dollar Baby.... still hate that family of hers!

I wonder how Jamie Fox could have beaten Clint as best actor that year. He was so good! His facial expressions and the pain in his eyes in those little scenes is so intense!

No, I don't think so.
What story is that?

It's the title story in this collection of boxing stories by F.X. Toole:

Million Dollar Baby



(Originally published under the title Rope Burns.)

The story was the basis of the screenplay for the movie.

It's a great collection (Rope Burns) of short stories...

One major difference between the book and the film is that in the short story Clints character gets to punch out one of
Her family members.. It would have been such a quintessential Eastwood moment... Quite brave of them not to use it...

Thanks a lot. I'll have a look.

And I agree on the brave part not to let Clint use his fists. He's the mentor in this one, not the fighter....

Firefox has always held a special place in my heart as it was the first of Clints films I got to see in the cinema..

I must've seen it so many times over the years but its been a while so when it popped up on tv recently I tuned in..
Firstly, I'm glad to say it was the full length cut unlike the UK dvd release of some years back..

I know its flawed in some ways but I still enjoy it...  :)

It probably looks timely again, now that the Cold War seems to be back with us!

I was thinking that... The film has held up surprisingly well really... (Special effects aside, which weren't that great to begin with) .. It's very Eastwood like in its pace and he's surrounded himself with some great actors... I still enjoy it..
