Warner Bros. May Have Ended Their 50-Year Partnership With Clint Eastwood


A sad state of affairs.  My apologies, I thought the content of this link was different because I noticed the date of August 4, but it?s not.  Still, it?s disheartening.  I hope Eastwood?s new project is a major success and he has the last laugh.

Finally saw Lafayette Escadrille on TCM today and there was one neat tidbit that I never knew about this movie.  The pitcher throwing to Clint in the baseball game was no other than Billy Jack himself... Tom Laughlin.  Pretty sure I never knew this.

That?s very interesting! Thanks for sharing! 🙂

I enjoyed seeing this.  It?s a perfect time capsule showing them working together on their second to last project. 

The one major downside for me is Yoko Ono.  I can NOT stand her screeching.  The cacophony of nonsensical noise she emits from her mouth is too much to bear.  There is absolutely, positively and unequivocally no musical or entertaining value to it.  I can?t believe it was included at all. 

I wonder why Paul singing Besame Mucho was edited out from the original.  That didn?t make sense, either. 

Otherwise, seeing and watching The Beatles working on their recordings after having finished The White Album was great.  It was very cool hearing them mention Elvis? birthday, too.

Very cool Brian. Always nice and uplifting to hear great stories like this. Wish you and her many more great times together!
Thank you!  We got back from vacation today.  We rented a cabin at Lake Winnipesaukee and has a great time.

Sad to learn of the passing of James Caan on July 6, Larry Storch and Tony Sirico on July 8.  Goodbye Sonny, Agarn and Walnuts. 

God Bless you, Sirs.  Rest In Peace.

I took my girlfriend to see this.  It?s always interesting to see what the MCU is up to, but am still very disappointed at Robert Downey Jr. and Chris Evans for no longer being a part of it as Iron Man and Captain America.

We enjoyed this film.  Speaking for myself, it was a little too long.  I?m still reeling over the long, drawn out cinematic experience of The Batman, so I wasn?t thrilled at experiencing a similar sensation while viewing this.  Still, it was entertaining more so than not and that?s a plus.

It?s taken years, but I finally got around to reading the first edition of this book.  While I don?t agree with everything the author had to offer, I still enjoyed reading it very much.  The photographs and poster images are great.  Sad that the author is no longer with us for future updates.  I recommend this highly for all Eastwood fans.

This felt like an overlong episode of Law & Order with Batman and Gordon as the lead detectives.  Not good.  I love Law & Order but also comic movies.  They don't mix well together at all.  I enjoy the over the top aspect of super hero movies because...they're super heroes!  They're supposed to do outrageous and unbelievable things I can't do.  For me, that's the point of the escapism entertainment value of them.  I don't
think comic book characters have to be closer to average people.  That's why I hated the Joker movie.  It was worse than this one.  So, maybe, hopefully the Batman sequels will be better.

I was very disappointed with this one.  This is the first one with Daniel Craig that is was not good at all, very boring.

Today is my girlfriend's birthday.  Her name is Cydney and we were introduced Christmas Day, 2020 by a mutual friend.  I asked her out on a date the following night and we've been spending a lot of time together since then. 

I'm sharing this with everyone because I've been on this forum since 2002, value my membership here and enjoy the interaction and various topics that are discussed.

I wish you all love. 

Take care and stay safe,

Jed (Brian) Cooper

Just finished watching this again.  Home today, channel surfing when I came across it.  Not a fan upon first viewing but have come to appreciate it with repeated viewings.  If there is a fourth installment, I hope it's as good as the first two.

Thank you, Hocine and AKA23!  I very much enjoyed reading your posts.  They are both very interesting and thoughtful.

Sorry I?m late this week.  Getting busier than usual at work, leading up to my 6-week medical leave for torn meniscus repair surgery on my left knee January 4.  I?m attempting to tie up as many loose ends as possible and now it?s crunch time.  Ugh.


Week 5:  December 21-27, 2021

High Plains Drifter/Pale Rider

These obviously go together very well in that the themes are very similar.  I like the character differences between The Stranger and The Preacher.  While I instantly liked High Plains Drifter, Pale Rider took decades to grow on me.  I?m happy to report that I now love it and enjoy that it was the first Eastwood western I?d seen upon theatrical release.  Both movies are great, their stories are similar but different enough to stand well enough on their own.
