« on: May 21, 2014, 11:03:00 AM »
I thought I'd drop in and say hello. It's been a while. I picked up the Blu-ray edition of "Joe Kidd" and thought of you all.

I can't say I'll lose any sleep over this if it's true. I'm perfectly content with my DVD's. My collection is far to big to upgrade it anytime soon. Anyway, here's the link...

General Discussion / Thunderbolt and Lightfoot (1974)
« on: October 20, 2008, 11:08:58 PM »

I watched this for the first time in years recently and was surprised to find that I enjoyed it much more than I could remember. I think this is one of the best road films I have ever seen. It's basically a male version of "Thelma and Louise." I thought the chemistry between Clint and Jeff Bridges was fantastic and I loved the direction and writing of Michael Cimino. I think this is one of Clint's best films of the 1970's and if any of you haven't seen it in awhile, I suggest you do!

Hello to everyone here at the Clint Eastwood Forums. I wanted to let you all know that you're invited to join a new GENERAL FILM FORUM a friend and myself have started.

Off-Topic Discussion / The Robert Mitchum appreciation thread.
« on: September 18, 2008, 01:03:54 PM »

I've seen Robert Mitchum's name pop up from time to time within this forum. Robert Mitchum belongs in the same group of actor's like Clint Eastwood. His cool manner and subtle nature on screen translated into engaging and powerful screen presense. I think he's one of the best actor's of all-time.

Here is an interview conducted with Robert Mitchum in 1971 on the Dick Cavett show. It's a great interview. Watch "Joe Cool" work this interview into perfection. Enjoy!

Off-Topic Discussion / Cinema Paradiso (1988) - A FILM FOR ALL OF US!
« on: August 31, 2008, 12:21:42 AM »

A filmmaker recalls his childhood, when he fell in love with the movies at his village's theater and formed a deep friendship with the theater's projectionist.

If you are a lover of movies then DO NOT look past "Cinema Paradiso." It's one of the greatest foreign films you will ever see. It's a beautiful film made for movie lover's. It's about the love of cinema, love, life, and friendship. It's a must see. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this film TO ALL OF YOU if you haven't seen it already.

The whole cast is great. The music by ENNIO MORRICONE is brilliant. I almost guarantee that when all of you see this, you will never forget it. This is one of the many ITALIAN made films I absolutely adore. It's a MASTERPIECE.

NOTE: The film is in the original italian language with English subtitles. If you are a movie lover who is put off by subtitles, please look past that and still see this wonderful film.

Off-Topic Discussion / Frank Sinatra appreciation thread
« on: July 27, 2008, 12:14:42 PM »
I'm a big fan of "Ol' blue eyes" and have been listening to him all morning. I can't stop repeating the song "Time after Time" which is possibly my favorite Sinatra song. The man's voice just sends chills all through my body. He was a man of many talents. Not only a great singer but also an underrated actor if you ask me.

If any of you Clint Eastwood fans are fond of Frank Sinatra, feel free to share your thoughts, favorite pictures or songs of the legend. I'd love to read some of your thoughts.

This is a sad day for not only Yankees fans but all baseball fans in general. Bobby Murcer was a true class-act. He will be missed greatly. May he rest in peace.  :'(


http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/news/story?id=3484627


Bobby Murcer played 17 seasons in the majors with the Yankees, Giants and Chicago Cubs.
NEW YORK (AP) - Former All- Star outfielder and longtime Yankees broadcaster Bobby Murcer has died at 62.

The Yankees say he died Saturday at home in Oklahoma City following a 19-month battle with brain cancer.

Murcer played 17 seasons in the majors with the Yankees, San Francisco Giants and Chicago Cubs from 1965 to 1983. He batted .277 with 252 home runs and worked as a Yankees broadcaster for 23 seasons.

Murcer was a fan favorite in New York. He had surgery in December 2006, four days after being diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor. He returned to the broadcast booth last season and briefly this year.

Off-Topic Discussion / The Big Trail (1930)
« on: July 05, 2008, 01:08:59 PM »

Breck Coleman (John Wayne) leads hundreds of settlers in covered wagons from the Mississippi River to their destiny out West.

This is the first film as the leading man for John Wayne. However, he wouldn't get another leading role in a major motion picture for nine more years until director John Ford cast him in "Stagecoach." "The Big Trail" was a big budget western produced by FOX. It was also one of the first films to be filmed in the widescreen format which was one of the reason's why it failed. The film was released during THE GREAT DEPRESSION and well, people could not afford to go to the movies. Also, theatre's didn't have the right projection to showcase a film in the widescreen format so it was a limited release.

During the years however, the film has resurfaced on DVD and recently the widescreen version has been released. I've been reading a lot up on the film lately and being a John Wayne fan, I'm dying to see it. It's one of the few John Wayne films I have yet to see and wanted to get an opinion here from anyone who has seen it.

Off-Topic Discussion / Man In The Wilderness (1971)
« on: June 20, 2008, 11:24:58 PM »

In the early 1800's, a group of fur trappers and Indian traders are returning with their goods to civilization and are making a desperate attempt to beat the oncoming winter. When guide Zachary Bass (Richard Harris) is injured in a bear attack, they decide he's a goner and leave him behind to die. When he recovers instead, he swears revenge on them and tracks them and their paranoiac expedition leader (John Huston) down.

This has got to be one of the most over-looked adventure/western films in history. It's a down-right classic, plain and simple. Richard Harris, who most of you know as English Bob in "Unforgiven", gives one of his best performances of his career. He embodies the part perfectly. You can really feel this man's inner demons, pain, and struggle as he roamed the wilderness and frontier in search of his crew who left him behind for dead. It's a stirring performance that shall never be forgotten.

We also get to see Hollywood directing/acting legend John Huston as the expedition leader who decides to leave Bass behind. He was also the perfect casting choice. John Huston is best known for his directing work in "Treasure of the Sierra Madre", "Maltese Falcon", "African Queen", "Key Largo", "Annie", "Escape to Victory",  and "Phobia."

We also get so see beautiful visuals with each and every passing scene. It's a beautiful film to watch. There dialogue is minimal here but it fit's the film perfectly. Also note that the musical score is memorable. It's not only exciting in spots but also has it's touching moments.

If you're a fan "Jeremiah Johnson", I suggest you do not pass this up!

Hello everyone! I've been away from the FORUM a lot lately because I've been so busy here in Los Angeles with school and such. I arrived back out here a little over a month ago to attend some more acting classes. I'm here to stay for good now.

Anyway, I have a few teachers and I could not get it out of my head that one of them looked very familiar to me. I've been going to her class for four weeks now and finally decided to look her up on IMDB to see her film/tv credits. And, come to find out, she's the actress Michelle Benes from "The Bridges of Madison County." I'm sure most of you know, but she played the lady who the town hated because she had an affair. I just thought it was so cool and that most of you would find this interesting. She's an extremely sweet lady and a wonderful teacher.

Off-Topic Discussion / Borgnine Aims for 200 Movies
« on: March 11, 2008, 08:16:30 PM »

From the IMDB news page:

http://www.imdb.com/news/wenn/2008-03-11/#2


Veteran actor Ernest Borgnine is keen to land a series of quickie TV films - so he can hit a landmark 200 movies in 2008. The Oscar-winning 91-year-old claims he has appeared in 198 film projects and he's determined to make it to 200 quickly - with a little help from TV networks. After winning a 2008 Golden Globe Award nomination for his leading role in A Grandpa For Christmas and acclaim for upcoming TV western Aces 'N' Eights, Borgnine hopes to land more TV roles. He says, "I'm waiting for some stuff to come through from Hallmark (the TV network) with a couple of things and then I'll reach 200 movies. But I hope to make more than 200." And he's up for anything - as he proved when he insisted on doing his own horse-riding in new TV movie Aces 'N' Eights. Borgnine explains, "I was 90 when I made this and I was still getting on a horse. They said, 'Are you really gonna get on a horse?' I said, 'Of course. I'll do it just like Duke (John) Wayne used to do it. Get a ladder and climb up and get on! How do you think Wayne used to get up there?'"

Off-Topic Discussion / C o c k Robin: A great band over-looked.
« on: February 13, 2008, 06:30:14 PM »

C o c k Robin is arguably one of the greatest bands to come out of the 1980's. Lead by singer/songwriter Peter Kingsbery and the beautiful Anna Lacazio. The voice's of these two are amazing. They never quite took off in the U.S...Why, remain's a mystery. They are huge in Europe, however. They're music is still ahead of it's time. Amazing pop-rock at it's best.

Here's a few classic song's of their's....

"When Your Heart Is Weak"
