This felt like an overlong episode of Law & Order with Batman and Gordon as the lead detectives.  Not good.  I love Law & Order but also comic movies.  They don't mix well together at all.  I enjoy the over the top aspect of super hero movies because...they're super heroes!  They're supposed to do outrageous and unbelievable things I can't do.  For me, that's the point of the escapism entertainment value of them.  I don't
think comic book characters have to be closer to average people.  That's why I hated the Joker movie.  It was worse than this one.  So, maybe, hopefully the Batman sequels will be better.

I was very disappointed with this one.  This is the first one with Daniel Craig that is was not good at all, very boring.

Today is my girlfriend's birthday.  Her name is Cydney and we were introduced Christmas Day, 2020 by a mutual friend.  I asked her out on a date the following night and we've been spending a lot of time together since then. 

I'm sharing this with everyone because I've been on this forum since 2002, value my membership here and enjoy the interaction and various topics that are discussed.

I wish you all love. 

Take care and stay safe,

Jed (Brian) Cooper

Just finished watching this again.  Home today, channel surfing when I came across it.  Not a fan upon first viewing but have come to appreciate it with repeated viewings.  If there is a fourth installment, I hope it's as good as the first two.

Thank you, Hocine and AKA23!  I very much enjoyed reading your posts.  They are both very interesting and thoughtful.

Sorry I?m late this week.  Getting busier than usual at work, leading up to my 6-week medical leave for torn meniscus repair surgery on my left knee January 4.  I?m attempting to tie up as many loose ends as possible and now it?s crunch time.  Ugh.


Week 5:  December 21-27, 2021

High Plains Drifter/Pale Rider

These obviously go together very well in that the themes are very similar.  I like the character differences between The Stranger and The Preacher.  While I instantly liked High Plains Drifter, Pale Rider took decades to grow on me.  I?m happy to report that I now love it and enjoy that it was the first Eastwood western I?d seen upon theatrical release.  Both movies are great, their stories are similar but different enough to stand well enough on their own.

Week 4:  December 14-20, 2021

Thanks, Sharkjerky.   Instead of putting too much thought into this, which isn?t working, I?ll go with the very first movie that came to me and that?s Million Dollar Baby.  I don?t know why, it just did so I?ll stick with it. 

I?m curious to know what others may think and/or come up with.

Glad you?re feeling better Jed

Thanks, Gant.  I took it easy this past weekend.  Lol, I went out of my way to watch Firefox Friday, Saturday and Sunday! 😜😂😎

I think for me, I'd choose "Million Dollar Baby" to pair with "Gran Torino." They both involve mentorship where the Clint Eastwood character serves as a father figure to either Maggie or Thao. I think both also feature two of Eastwood's strongest performances. This pairing would also be a solid choice, as they are both either family, or surrogate family, dramas, and both were written by Nick Schenk.

Thanks, AKA.  I agree, those would make a good pairing as well.

           Well,  I'd do The Beguiled and Tightrope as a double feature since both have a large female cast and the affirmation of offbeat roles for Eastwood.

Whataya think Jed????

Sure, good one, Perry!  👍🏻🙂

I compiled my own full John Lennon album comprised of his songs from Double Fantasy and Milk & Honey because I can?t stand the shrill sound of Yoko?s voice.  It sounds like a cat?s being tortured.  So, with all due respect to Mr. Lennon, I pay tribute to his memory by listening to his songs from his last two albums.

Week 4:  December 7-13, 2021

Gran Torino / The Mule

For me, these would make for a good double feature viewing because they?re my favorites of his most recent latter-day starring roles.

Thanks, Gant and AKA for your input.  I would?ve responded sooner but a week ago today I tested positive for Covid.  My symptoms were mild, thank goodness and today results came in for my follow-up test yesterday that I?ve tested negative for Covid.  Ingot the Moderna vaccination last April and May so perhaps that?s what help me through.  After being out seven days, I look forward to returning to work tomorrow. 

I hope everybody is doing well.

Week 3:  November 30-December 6, 2021

Ok, I?ll post one of my ideas.

Thunderbolt & Lightfoot / The Eiger Sanction

I think this would make for a good double feature.  George Kennedy appeared in both with Clint and I enjoy both characters he played.   I like that they came out back to back as well. 

Do you agree that these two make a good double feature pairing, or no?  Which film would you watch with Thunderbolt & Lightfoot?  How about The Eiger Sanction?

So, here we are at week #3.  Would anyone like to submit another idea? 🙂

Thanks, Gant.  I missed Honkytonk Man on the big screen.  Had I not gone out of my way, I would?ve missed White Hunter, Black Heart.  I agree, it looked great on the big screen.  I?m sure I?d have come away with the same impression with Honkytonk Man, too.

A Perfect World.

This is another film that I think would make for a good pairing with White Hunter, Black Heart.  It?s a thought provoking character study.
