Title: It's been a while...
Post by: bigdai on August 07, 2010, 11:40:36 AM
Wow, i can't believe its been 7 years since I last posted on here! Its going to take a while to catch up with the news and see whats going on. I was wondering who from them ol' days is still on here and who is left from the old site (RIP). Over the past 84ish months i've got a new career, new wife and new child so its all been going on. I've still been watching Eastwood films so its not been a complete abandonment. To save me some time I was wondering if we can have a list of the top stories from the past 7 years. Perhaps people can submit their top five threads for me to look through.

berst wishes to all and hope to be joining in forums again from now on.

Welcome back! It's great to hear from you again. Congrats on the new wife and child.  8)

Top stories? That would be hard to say ... if you've been keeping up with Clint's newer movies, you might want to check out some discussions we've had about them, in the Eastwood News forum. Here's a few:

Thanks folks. I'll check out those threads.

The only film i've not seen is the Changeling which is mainly due to the terrible trailer with Angelina Jolie constantly over-acting and screaming for her baby - however, I need to get over that. I wasn't impressed by Invictus. The dialogue was really clunky as they had to describe the rules of rugby for the American audience and the rugby scenes were awful - but then I am a welshman. If anyone wants to see a really good film about rugby let me know and I will try and think of the title of one I know. It is the story of a Wales v New Zealand match which is replayed after about 25years due to a dodgy result. I think it was a BBC production.
