This is the Movie Night discussion thread for Blood Work. We'll meet here up to an hour before we start rolling the film on Sunday September 27, 2009. (or in Australia, early Monday morning, September 28, 2009.) For anyone who'd like to join us ... have your Blood Work DVD (or video) ready to play. We'll start the film at 20:00 UTC, Board Time. Check here to see what time we'll be starting in your area:

      In CST (U.S. Central Time Zone) states - 3:00 PM
      In EST (U.S. East Coast) states - 4:00 PM
      In Sao Paulo, Brazil - 5:00 PM
      In Great Britain, Portugal - 9:00 PM
      In France, Italy - 10:00 PM
      In Finland - 11:00PM
      In Sydney and Melbourne, Australia - 6:00 AM, Monday, September 28.

If you need more time conversions, check here:

http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/converter.html

We'll be starting the movie at the first frame, showing the Warner Bros logo.

                

This is at 0:00:06 on the R-4 DVD.

Set up your movie here, and pause. We'll all be hitting "Start" at exactly the top of the hour.

We'll be taking three short breaks during the film. (Usually around 10 minutes)

                

The first break is at the end of Chapter 7 on the R-4 DVD (22:55).
Terry is at a library doing a computer search on robberies.

                

The second break is at the start of Chapter 16 on the R-4 DVD (50:13)
Terry and Buddy are driving out to Mrs. Cordell's place. This is right after Terry says to Buddy, "You're not a loser." Buddy replies "It's OK Terry, only my mom can tell me that, my friends can tell me the truth."

                

The final break is at the start of Chapter 23 on the R-4 DVD (1:14:06)
This is right after the scene outside Lockridge's house where Detective Winston says to Terry, "Want some coffee? No, go home, take your pills."

I hope to see as many members here as possible.

(I'm starting this thread early so I could add the event to the calendar--all events must have a thread to link to.)

Just a couple of reminders:

1) By default, this board gives you a warning message when someone else has posted while you're writing a post. That can get very frustrating in the heat of things in these threads ... but now the feature can be turned off, temporarily (or permanently if you prefer).

To turn it off, click the link on the brown bar near the top of the page to your profile:

You'll go to your profile page. On the left-hand side, there's a list of stuff you can do here including "Modify profile." Under that heading, click the link to "Look and Layout Preferences." Now you'll see some choices with little white checkboxes next to them. One of them is "Don't warn on new replies made while posting." Click in that box so there's a check mark there. Then, in the lower right hand corner, click "Change profile" and you're all set.

I find it also helps to use the keyboard shortcut when posting: alt+s. (Or in the latest version of Firefox, alt+shift+s.)

2) You can also use the "Quick Reply" feature: At the bottom of each thread is a brown bar with "Quick Reply" on the left hand corner. If you don't have it enabled, that's all you'll see and there will be a plus sign to the left of "Quick Reply." Click the plus sign, and a reply box will open beneath the brown bar and will stay there until you click the sign (now a minus) next to "Quick Reply" again. You can type your post right in this box and don't have to wait for a "Reply" page to open. It's a little harder to use smilies, though, unless you remember all the shortcuts!

I have recovered Blood Work from my mothers so I’m in for sure!

Some food for thought on Blood Work:

Eastwood said he was attracted to the role because of the character’s physical and psychological vulnerability and because it provided him with ‘a different slant on a familiar role, one which was more appropriate to a man of my maturity’.

It’s always nice to see Clint and especially nice to see him play someone whose humanity – no, whose mortality – is all to apparent.
-Michael O'Sullivan  Washington Post

Eastwood by Robert Tanitch 2005 Barnes and Noble

Has there ever been so unneurotic, so steadfast, and so steadily improving a moviemaker?
-David Thomson

It looks effortless, but it’s very complicated to be simple.  It’s like Clint’s persona, which is very cool and calm, but there’s a lot going on underneath it – there’s a lot of passion, and a great deal of understanding of what it is to be human.  
-Martin Scorsese

I like that quote. It does sum up how I see Clint.

The Yankee game started late because of a rain delay. It's only in the fourth inning ... it's likely to have at least an hour to go when Movie Night starts.

I'll put the movie on and try to watch and comment, but I'm afraid my attention is going to be divided.  :-\

Hey Higgy.

Looks like it's a mad rush in the last few minutes before showtime.

Rodriguez over plays his part a little bit but overall I think it’s done well.
