General Discussion / Will Clint act again?
« on: March 01, 2004, 04:52:12 PM »

     I remember during Blood Work's release Clint hinted at the fact that it could be his last film as an actor and he'd continue working as a director.

      Now since it looks like his next project will be the Neil Armstrong bio I wonder if he is retired from acting.

      He's had a great career as a film star and certianly doesn't owe anyone anything.   But as an Eastwood fan I hope he at least has a few more roles left in him.

       Even if Clint's acting days are over I'm glad we still have him around as a great director.

General Discussion / Bronco Billy
« on: October 30, 2003, 12:15:03 AM »

     I bought this film on DVD today and watched it in its entirety for the first time.   I liked it quite a bit.   It's a nice little comedy that has a lot of heart.

      It's also fun to watch Clint poke fun at his tough guy image in certain scenes.

       Along with Billy the character that I liked the most was Doc.   He came across as the nicest and most likable of the characters.

        I've read that this film is one of Clint's favorites and it's not too hard to see why.

Eastwood News / Did Clint top Unforgiven?
« on: October 15, 2003, 08:44:26 PM »

     I went to see Mystic River today and was totally blown away by it.   I was expecting it to be quite good since Clint is a terrific director and the reviews have been positive.   But even with that this movie still surpassed my expectations.    The 2hrs and 17 minutes just flew right by and I felt like I was watching the struggles of real people.  The film had an excellent combination of suspense and drama.   Plus Clint's film score was pretty haunting and fit in perfectly.

       As much as I love Unforgiven I think that Mystic River might've just surpassed it and is now Clint Eastwood's directorial masterpiece.   I expect to see Clint get his second Oscar nomination for Best Director and hopefully he'll win.
