Off-Topic Discussion / Silent era films: what are your favorite ones?
« on: August 11, 2020, 11:17:37 PM »
I have been wanting to add a few silent era movies to my collection for some while now. I've ordered The Gold Rush Charlie Chaplin film. Few years ago I watched a couple silent films on TCM channel and actually enjoyed them. It's nice getting a sense of what people watched back in the 20s and 30s. But theres something unique and different about them. Do any of you like silent era films?  What are some of your favorite ones?

Off-Topic Discussion / Physical movie media gone forever?
« on: August 05, 2019, 01:36:09 PM »
I love collecting DVDs and blurays. But I've heard mixed opinions about physical movie media becoming completely obsolete. For me this is hard to believe due to several advantages over digital movies. With physical copies you actually own the movie. Watch it anytime and carry it wherever you go. Plus a lot of them have cool extra bonus features.  And the picture quality is better too. I own all of Eastwoods DVD movies he's starred in. And I enjoy watching the extra behind the scene features of his movies. Plus I enjoy looking at the artwork on the front cover of DVD and blurays as well. Now I have no problem with digital movies. It defenately has its place in the movie market. Don't have to store so many movies. I get that. Not everyone likes to have a ton of DVD and blurays everywhere. But there are a ton of DVD and bluray collectors out there like myself who enjoy having physical copies on shelves. Cause like I mentioned you own it and watch it anytime. Extra bonus features, picture quality is better. Artwork on front cover is cool etc. With digital like Netflix they don't have every single movie. I enjoy several b movies cult classics. Plus the ones they do have are only there temporarily never know when there taken away. And you don't know if signal will be lost. And not everyone has internet service. Again, I see digital has its place. As I enjoy watching various TV shows on Netflix that I wouldn't want to buy. But there are several collectors out there who love there collections and all the cool stuff that comes with certain DVD and bluray releases. I don't see why they can't always have both options digital and physical copies offered to customers.

I watched Where Eagles Dare the other night. I enjoyed it quite a bit. But out of the three Eastwood war movies I still like Kelkys Heroes the best. I just love the story and cast in Kellys Heroes. Just a fun movie to watch. Where Eagles Dare would be second. And Heartbreakridge would be last.

I watched this movie for the second time ever last night. These types of movies aren't really something I'm into. But I have to say Bridges of Madison county is a very good movie and I enjoyed watching it. I feel like both Eastwood and Streep did a great job in this movie. I found it interesting throughout the entire movie. The ending is also really good. I remember enjoying it first time I watched it too. It's really an underrated Eastwoid movie. But it's one I enjoyed watching. What are some of your thoughts about this movie?

General Discussion / The witches movie
« on: September 05, 2017, 08:47:11 PM »
Do any of you own this movie on dvd?  It's the only one that I don't own that Eastwood stars in as an actor. I see that Amazon has it on DVD the newest release date is April 15 2014. The other release back in 2011 says it's an on demand made DVD using DVD-r recordable media.

Out of these three Eastwood war movies which one do you like best?  I like Kelly's heroes then heartbreak ridge and where Eagles dare is last. I watched heartbreak ridge last night and I'm fixing to watch Kelly's heroes here shortly. And I will watch where Eagles dare next week sometime. I've always liked Kelly's heroes cause of the great characters. It's just a fun movie to watch. In the past I haven't been to big of a fan of heartbreak and where Eagles dare. But I enjoyed heartbreak much more this time around. And hopefully after watching where Eagles dare again will have the same effect.

Which biography book is the best and most accurate account of Babe Ruth's life?  I watched The Babe a few nights ago the one starring John goodman as Ruth. Hadn't seen it in a long time. Babe Ruth is considered by many to be the best player ever. Can't argue that, but players like willie mays and Mickey mantle are right up there too. I firmly believe that Babe Ruth would be a great great player even in today's game. But he would have to take better care of himself. Less alcohol, better diet, and being physically fit would be required for him to be successful in today's game especially longevity wise. He was that good of a player.  The Babe Ruth story is very interesting and I am wanting to read a great biography on him. But I want it to be the most accurate one possible. I know that there will always be some mystery about Ruth. Like whether or not he called his shot. How he met his first wife etc. There will always be some inaccuracies. But I'm looking for the most accurate book out there.

Thanks.

General Discussion / Clint's great health
« on: April 14, 2017, 02:34:42 AM »
I just finished watching trouble with the curve. Which I have really enjoyed watching over the past 5 yrs. Its amazing to me how well Clint did in this movie considering he was 81 yrs old at the time. Not only that but he directed a great movie in sully this past year too. I haven't heard of any major illnesses with Clint at least that weren't made public. The man appears to be very healthy and looks healthy too. If I'm lucky enough to live that old I hope I'm as in great a shape as he is. He is a great role model for health and longevity. He obviously takes great care of himself still at the age of 86. I'm so proud that he's my favorite actor and such a great person and role model for good health.

Off-Topic Discussion / pictures professionally framed question
« on: December 28, 2016, 09:37:15 PM »
First off, Have any of you had a picture professionally framed?  I usually always frame my pictures myself. But last yr for Christmas my parents bought me a picture of Clint from GBU and paid to have it professionally framed which cost quite a bit.  Ive noticed that there is a brown paper covering the back of the frame.  Which I think that is customary for pictures being professionally framed. Do you leave the brown paper on the back of the frame?  What do you do leave it on there or remove the brown paper on the back of the frame?  The picture isnt matted or anything like that. The picture completely fills in the entire frame.  No matting was done.  Which I dont prefer my pictures to be matted.

Thanks for any help

I am wanting to buy a dvd movie from Amazon but Amazon doesnt have this dvd movie but one of there third party sellers does. I always buy my dvd movies brand new. I never buy used movies.  And when I order them from Amazon I always make sure it is sold and shipped from Amazon.  I am wanting to buy GBU on stand alone dvd.  But the most current copy of this movie on dvd is temporarily unavailable sold by Amazon.  Plus this copy is the extended version with Clint and Eli voices dubbed in.  The movie is long enough already.  So I am trying to get one of the previous copies of the movie.   But Amazon doesnt sell these copies.  Some of there third party sellers are.  And the prices are normal too.  These third party sellers list some of these copies as new.  Which I only want new dvd movies never opened before.  My question is:  Have any of you bought new dvd movies or anything from third party sellers on Amazon before?  If they list it as new then that means Im getting a brand new never been opened before or used before copy of the movie right?  It does say fullfilment by Amazon.  I do already own the movie in a set.  But I am collecting all of Clints movies on stand alone dvd.

Thanks for any help

Do any of you own this dvd two disc collectors edition?  Im unable to do pics.  But the dvd case or box is white with Clints full picture on the front.  Its the newest dvd out for this movie.  Its got added scenes that were originally cut.  And Clints and Elis voice is dubbed in which this was done when both men are older.  And there is a lee van cleef impersonator for his part since he died in 89.  Only done for those specific added on scenes.  Anyways just wondering how the dvd disc are set inside this case?  Is the case cardboard or plastic?  Is this a quality copy?  I cant get much info on the specifics on what type of case it is and how the disc are inside the case.

Thanks for any help

Off-Topic Discussion / Do you buy organic or conventional produce?
« on: November 06, 2016, 09:53:00 PM »
Im really into health and fitness now and am trying to be as healthy as possible.  I would like to buy all of my produce organic but its so dang expensive.  And not too many restaurants here that are only organic. I eat subway twice a week but I know there not organic.  I currently buy certain produce organic and others conventional. But I was wondering do you buy all organic produce, some organic produce, or all conventional produce?  I would think its better to eat conventional non organic produce than to not ever eat fruits and vegetables at all.  Anotherwards isnt it better to eat these fruits and veggies even if they do have some pesticides?  I mean the pesticide level is restricted/regulated to be safe enough to consume.  Just curious what do you do?  Because im finding it very difficult to eat out and money wise because pretty much all restaurants dont use organic produce plus its so expensive.

Thanks

Just curious what are your three least favorite acted in films for Clint?  And explain why if u want too. Obviously we're all fans of his movies. But there's going to be some we don't necessarily like as much as others.

Here's mine: 

1. Paint your wagon. Too long. Not a big fan of musicals. This movie is the only one I wouldnt care ever to see again.
2. Fire Fox. Just didn't click with me. Thought it was boring. I would watch again though.
3. City Heat. Didn't care for the 30s theme. Another one I thought was a little boring. Could have been much better. But would watch again at some point.

All of his other movies I liked at various degrees. There was some parts that I liked. But the above three just didn't do it for me. Not bad considering he's acted in 50 plus movies.

17
Just curious was Revenge of the creature Clints very first appearance onscreen? Was this his very first movie or tv show appearance ever?  On IMDb it shows revenge of the creature at the very bottom meaning that should be his first movie. But I wanted to make sure. There was another film that was released before revenge of the creature but that doesn't necessarily mean that it was filmed first.

Thanks.

Questions & Answers / Rawhide filming location question
« on: January 21, 2016, 09:08:09 PM »
I just started watching my Rawhide shows last night.  I watched all three episodes on disc one season one.  And I was wondering where was Rawhide filmed at?  Its hard to tell the area looks pretty vague too me.  And they might have even used paintings as scenary back drops.  I may be wrong so please someone let me know about this.

19
I saw on Amazon where you can purchase seasons or episodes. Not sure if that means you get the disc or if that means you buy the episode online?  But I would like to purchase the mr Ed episode with Clint and have it in DVD. Is that possible?  Just want that episode only without buying the entire season.

Any of you like this movie?  I watched it in high school government class and I remembered liking it. IMDb has it listed as there #7 rated movie. Solid 8.9 rating which is very good. Henry Fonda is very good in this movie. I think it's a classic. And I am thinking about buying it on DVD.
