Collectors' Corner / New Dead Pool OST
« on: December 23, 2008, 04:20:19 AM »
It appears that someone already has a copy.
Lucky SOB.

I'd rather wait like everyone else and get a fresh new copy.
Still counting... 20 Days, 23 Hours and 58 Minutes.

The Dirty Harry Films / A "New" Dirty Harry movie...
« on: July 09, 2008, 06:18:50 PM »
Did you know that there was a discarded Dirty Harry movie written by The Enforcer writer Gail Morgan Hickman?
After The Enforcer was released, Hickman wrote another screenplay called "Chain Reaction."  It was optional for Clint, but
he intended it to be left a trilogy and he rejected it.

I wonder what it was about.

General Discussion / Eastwood in "Death Wish"
« on: April 13, 2008, 01:42:45 PM »
Clint was offered the role of Paul Kersey in Death Wish after the success of Dirty Harry.
He thought he would be poorly cast.  Charles Bronson did great.  However, do you think the movie would
have turned out better with Clint?

General Discussion / The Eiger Sanction...

Is it a worthy Clint movie?
It looks interesting.  Is it a good movie or should I pass.

It's called "Monday, Morning & A 44. Magnum."
It involves you guiding (a Greek) Harry Callahan and helping him start his daily morning target practice with coffee.

Eastwood News / The Dead Pool OST too pricey for release?
« on: August 09, 2007, 07:02:44 PM »
The release of The Dead Pool score may be too expensive for Aleph Records to pay for.
Quote
The greater challenge would be The Dead Pool, As Lalo explained "Releasing The Dead Pool is going to be more difficult because this would be the first ever soundtrack release of that score, and the musicians’ union would require re-use payment; I don’t know if Aleph Records have the budget to do that."

The Dead Pool was previously unavailable for release in the Dirty Harry Anthology because of contractual problems.

« on: August 07, 2007, 05:53:41 PM »
Dirty Harry
- Harry hates everybody.
- Never listen to your bosses

Magnum Force
- Harry never took a flying lesson.
- A man's got to know his limitations.

The Enforcer
- 32 positions of lovemaking with inflatable "rubber dollies" cost $75.
- Personnel is for a**holes.

Sudden Impact
- Since 1983, nobody puts ketchup on hot dogs.
- Harry has two friends.  Smith and Wesson.

The Dead Pool
- Teaming up with a Chinese American is a good idea.
- Cooperation works two ways.

Trivia Games / The ABC's of Dirty Harry
« on: July 29, 2007, 06:37:05 PM »
Someone types something that has to do with anything from any Dirty Harry movie that would begin with the next letter in the alphabet.  When we get to Z, I guess we can bump back to A and hopfully be able to start over again.
--------------------------------------------
A.

Al Bressler.

Questions & Answers / Sunglasses from "The Gauntlet"
« on: June 24, 2007, 03:41:18 PM »
Hey, moved on from "The Enforcer!"

But, really, I was just wondering what model sunglasses where used in "The Gauntlet" if anyone knows.
My friends say I'm stuck in the 70's, which, by the way, I am! O0

The Dirty Harry Films / The Enforcer Shades
« on: April 30, 2007, 02:18:43 PM »
Hey:
Are the shades from The Enforcer still "unidentified?"
I never really liked them compared to the original sunglasses, but they are suddenly starting to grow on me.

Thanks

The Dirty Harry Films / Harry & Kate
« on: February 19, 2007, 09:17:07 PM »
Before I bought any of the Dirty Harry films, I searched them out.  My father told me about Dirty Harry and I read about the sequels.  I didn't know about The Enforcer until it was time to buy it.  As I read the back, I found out about his lady partner.  I was surprised.  However, as the film went on, I felt as if there was a "thing" between Harry and Kate.  I can't begin to tell you how upset I was when she died.  Anyone else have the same connection?

The Dirty Harry Films / Why you liked and disliked each film.
« on: November 10, 2006, 06:16:39 PM »
What made you LIKE and DISLIKE each Dirty Harry movie?

Dirty Harry
Like: Well, just look what it started!
Hate: Nothing, really...

Magnum Force
Like: The longest one and shows another side to Harry.
Hate: Honestly, him having a love life out of nowhere.

The Enforcer
Like: Harry with a female partner.
Hate: No Lalo score.

Sudden Impact
Like: He appears older and badder.
Hate: "San Paulo", no .44 Magnum? What the?  Harry...not cool.

The Dead Pool
Like: It shows how time has past.  How much he still hates his job and still a mean bastard.
Hate: 1971-1988.  5 Films.  17 years. Clint Eastwood, a 1970s icon in an 80s action/thriller.  Top that all off, the main villian misses Harry with .44 magnum in point blank rage.  I know Harry's the hero, but how do you miss from 5 feet?

As much as I love The Dead Pool...we have a few problems here.

The Dirty Harry Films / 3 Versions of the Sudden Impact Theme?
« on: September 23, 2006, 02:56:31 PM »
I recently noticed the differance between the Sudden Impact theme from the Dirty Harry Anthology and the theme from the movie.  Honestly, I prefer the movie version better.  I ripped it from the movie on my computer.  It is 2:24 and the CD version is 2:52.  Of coarse, in the movie, it fades as we get closer to the car.  The other version is on a CD which I forgot the name of.  That one is 3:48.  Why is that one so much longer?


PS: If anyone whats the movie version to hear the differance, e-mail me at lomaxfellow76@aol.com.
