Funny thing is, Gant only “thinks in Russian” once, the other pilot commands from him are verbal.

I don’t recall wondering in prior viewings how strange it was that Gant was running from a U.S. military helicopter, surely he recognized it... Of course, his PTSD could’ve been triggered by the sudden appearance of the copter.  I can’t remember if that’s explained in the novel.  I enjoyed reading it and the sequel, Firefox Down!, very much. 

Still, it was nice revisiting this film again.  I would edit it to make it tighter, more suspenseful.  30-40 minutes could easily be scrapped.

Had I sat down to watch this movie straight on from beginning to end, I’d have dozed off.  It was perfect having it on as I wrapped Christmas presents.  Firefox was the very first ticket I’d bought for a large screen Eastwood movie and for that reason it’s special to me even though it’s not a favorite. 

It was a nice walk down memory lane.

Firefox has always been one of my favorite. First time watched it, I watched the whole movie with no interruptions also it helps I watched with my father that kept me more interested through the movie. :)

I gave this another viewing this weekend.  Not as good as the Leone trilogy, but still very enjoyable.

Finally!  Six long years since the last Clint Eastwood movie!  Talk about a dry spell!  Well worth the wait.  I saw this again Wednesday night.  I may see it one more time before it’s gone from the cinemas.  I enjoyed The Mule very much.  I found nothing wong with it and look forward to seeing it again.

Hey Jed. I saw "The Mule" for the second time last night. I'd love to hear your thoughts and feelings about the film. I hope you'll consider posting some more extended thoughts in the non-spoilers thread.

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.

Thanks, AKA.  However, I believe it would be best to post in the Spoilers allowed thread, though so there’s no restrictions with respect to giving anything away. 🙂

Watched Gran Torino again last night.

I haven't seen The Mule yet though as it isn't shown at my local cinema.

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 bugger’s gone by morning.

Very cool marathon Jed. I've done that before on a day off. Some days just don't want to step outside at all. Just stay in all day watching movie marathons. Usually Rocky, Rambo, Dirty Harry, Indiana Jones marathons to name a few I enjoy. I also sometimes have an Eastwood marathon where I pick out 4 or 5 Various Eastwood movies and watch them all day. Very fun. The next day I'm ready to get outside though. Makes you appreciate the outdoors. But it is nice staying in taking a break from outside world.

I watched The Mule last night on DVD. I watched it at the theatre and this was my second viewing. I enjoyed it even more second time around. Eastwood is hilarious. And everybody else was great too. Really great movie!

I didn't do that either, but have been thinking about pulling out some of the Dirty Harry sequels soon. O0

Watching Two Mules For Sister Sara. Haven't seen it for over 15 years. I forgotten just how good Shirley McClaine was in this.

Catching up on re-watching some of my dvds.

Hang 'em high - As I get older, my enjoyment of westerns increases. This was one of his best.

Dirty Harry - seen it 10 times maybe and always watchable, a classic.

The Outlaw Josey Wales - watching this last night, another of his very best.

             Was watching Fistful Of Dollars and interestingly they had a spaghetti Western that followed called Ace High with Terrance Hill, Bud Spencer and Eli Wallach who sounded and acted like Tuco. I never realized Wallach did another Spaghetti western. This movie came out in 1968

Watching firefox here in a bit. Been a long time since I've seen it. Feel like watching one of his lesser known movies. Any of you like Fire Fox?  Again been awhile since I've seen it.

Magnum Force for the afternoon's viewing, love the film and look forward to seeing it again.

Probably the best Harry film not including the first one.

I watch this film whenever it pops up on tv. I still love Firefox, for numerous reasons . One of them being it was the first Eastwood film I saw in a cinema, also the first film I saw when I left home and moved up  to central London...

In fact, the more I watch it the more I enjoy it, faults an all.
There was a great debate on here many years ago where someone (can't remember who) wrote quite a lengthy and interesting piece praising and defending the movie. I think it was probably on the old board tho..
