Yeah, seems like a good sign that it looks like the writer's strike may be over soon. Hopefully the SAG strike will be coming to an end soon.

Nice find, Hocine. Have you seen this movie before or just able to find it after reading the question?

Hi joeschmoe, that does not sound like an Eastwood movie to me. Perhaps it was a spaghetti western with a "Clint Eastwood type"? This scene also sounds like it might have been in a comedy, which would make me think of Terence Hill movies.

So one of these is not like the other.  ;D

The Predator 4-movie set: includes Predator, Predator 2, Predators, and The Predator (that's not confusing at all).
That Darn Cat (1965)

This is a Disney Movie Club order. I'm preordering Prey for a pretty good price. O0  I just watched That Darn Cat on Disney+ and enjoyed it a lot, and this is a DVD (it's not available on Blu-ray apparently).

I read part of First Blood years ago and got away from it one summer. I think I was still in college. I still have a copy (it's a movie tie-in paperback so it has a drawing of Stallone on the cover). And I think that's a good point that it may have been darker if the movie had been done in the 1970s.

I also have the novelization of Rambo: First Blood Part II that was written by David Morrell (and I see he wrote the novelization for Rambo III too).

Gant, have you ever listened to the audio commentaries for the First Blood movie? David Morrell does one and it's really interesting.

I watched Texas Chainsaw from 2013 where Scott Eastwood has a small role. He's in a couple scenes and was fine in them. I don't want to comment too much, because I don't want to spoil anything in case anyone happens to decide to watch it (it took me about 10 years to get to it after all!).

Tough in that you didn't like it much, or tough because of the subject matter?

Space Cowboys was Clint?s most recent film when I joined this board 😁
I think it would be the same for me too. Blood Work would have came out a little after.

I went to Mission: Impossible--Dead Reckoning Part One, and it is another really solid entry to the franchise. Looking forward to Part Two.

In the opening sequence of Space Cowboys, young Frank Corvin was actually played by Toby Stephens: I think a mole was added above his upper lip to look more like Clint.

In Trouble With the Curve, some footage from Firefox were used.

Some footage from Dirty Harry were used for In the Line Of Fire. Do you remember, in the beginning of the film, the scene where Al D?Andrea and Frank Horrigan look at a photo on the wall of Mitch Leary flat ? Al D?Andrea recognized Frank Horrigan: that photo was probably from Coogans Bluff.
Oh, right, I do remember hearing about that years ago for the younger version of the character in Space Cowboys.

Barnes and Noble has its 50% off sale for Criterion every July and November, so that's why I ordered It Happened One Night. I also made another order to take advantage of the deal. Of course, 50% off Criterion just means you're paying a pretty normal price for Blu-rays.

Seven Samurai

I guess it went over OK. They did the same thing in that movie with a young Princess Leia, I believe.

I wouldn't want to see a new Peter Cushing movie (it's a frightening thought that he could still be teamed up with Christopher Lee for a movie), of course, but it was interesting to see them use his image for the sake of having his character present. And I'm sure his estate/family signed off on that.

Didn't Space Cowboys do that to get a young Clint Eastwood, or did they just take old footage of him and put it into the movie?

I may end up tipping the scales a little further for the dogs with this! ;)

Our new addition - a peke-a-poo pup named Buffy!

We've had her for about a month now. She's probably, I don't know, seven or eight weeks old in the pictures. She was born on June 8.

But I'll keep things fair though, and get a picture of my cat up at some point! :)
Apparently there was a picture with this post originally.

My family just lost Buffy on Friday at the age of 19.

Thunderbolt and Lightfoot is coming to 4K from Kino Lorber on September 26.

Not specifically on topic, but on the topic of using deceased actors, we did already see this with Rogue One using Peter Cushing's character from the original Star Wars.

I hope the strike won't take long to settle. From what I've heard, the producers and studios are trying to screw over people in some ways, so I hope the actors and writers can bargain effectively enough.

I like Rider on the Rain too. Within the last few months, I also bought a Blu-ray set of Death Wish 2-4, so I thought the 4K upgrade for the original would be good. I still don't have a 4K player but it has the Blu-ray in it. And the same thing goes for The Truman Show too--it does have a Blu-ray in it, plus a digital code. That is my favorite Jim Carrey movie and it's been a long time since I've seen it.

Just ordered It Happened One Night, Death Wish, and The Truman Show.

That would be unfortunate.

antonis, is this theater running an Eastwood series? So cool you've gotten to see these movies on the big screen!
