The Dirty Harry Films / Re:Magnum Force Dolby digital sound mix .

I recall Eastwood mentioned that the new sound mixes on his older films sounded a little "too good" for their own good, or something to that effect. I believe he discusses it on one of the Dirty Harry DVD "extra features."

Now these two below don't look so bad, especially the top one - although he looks like a 90s Unforgiven Eastwood sporting a MWNN poncho, and that oversized hat looks like a pimp's hat):






Now this guy is really bad:



Looks more like Dirty Costner than anything....

Maybe the 'sculpter' got fired before completing it (because it looked so bad), and left his sculpting blade still stuck in it.

Sort of gives me an idea of starting a "Reverse Eastwood Film Survivor," starting with elimimating the best films, working up to the worst.  ;D

I think The Rookie and City Heat are good candidates for worst.

No, it doesn't. Looks like they turned the heat up a little too high in that building.

You come down to any of the K-Marts down here and I'll show you plenty of 'em. They put Clyde to shame. The ones on the East Coast in Virginia were even worse. I've never seen such hairy beasts!

Don't know if I've seen those. I'm surprised they're advertising being they probably won't be around much longer. My guess, anyway. K-Mart's really gone downhill in the last several years....horrible service, stores are usually a mess, cashiers look like female gorillas (with personalities to match). Almost as bad as Wal-Mart.... ;D

Clint Eastwood Westerns / Re:Steak & Potatoes vs Spaghetti
« on: December 12, 2002, 09:36:44 AM »
I personally think Leone's movies took the basic western myth and exaggerated it to extreme proportions, to an almost cartoon like level.  And I love those movies because of that...

...I don't see how anyone can't see Clint's self-directed westerns as more artistic, accomplished and complete than the "spaghetti" westerns, but I can fully understand someone preferring them.  We all have our personal preferences.

Yes, exactly. I guess one reason I've felt they way I do about the spaghettis is because I'm heavily into non-fiction and history, such as documentaries, etc., and that has an influence on how I've viewed and critiqued Leone's films - thru a "realist's" eyes.  But that's just me. I know it's all fantasy - I think it's just a matter of getting "lost" in a film, such as one of his, which I find more difficult to do.

I have friends, lawyers and such, who love the Cartoon Network (not implying the spaghettis are on that level), but as you said, it's all preference. Sometimes an explanation isn't needed. Some things either "click" with us or they don't. All a matter of taste. I still wouldn't mind owning the MWNN 3 DVD set, though.  ;)

Yeah, it definitely looks nicer. Takes a little longer for pages to load, though (I got a dial-up at home), but I like the new board.

Hey I like that new avatar of you & "KC," Matt. From the back she looks just like Evelyn Draper from Misty. Well if she's anything like Evelyn, you'd better not rub her the wrong way, pal!  ;D

The Dirty Harry Films / Re: The Enforcer
« on: December 10, 2002, 10:29:23 AM »
Yeah, first impressions can stick with you permanently, especially if you first saw certain  Eastwood films as a young kid. I recall The Enforcer being a big deal on primetime network television in the 70s, the “ABC Movie of the Week” (or whatever network it was broadcast on), with TV Guide featuring a half page article on the movie . So watching that with everyone crowded around the big TV in the living room made it all the more exciting. I also recall Play Misty, Beguiled, Joe Kidd, Thunderbolt, High Plains, etc, that were big events on network primetime TV back then (several years before cable was even heard of by most households). I mean, with no video players on the market yet, you made time to watch those because who knew when they’d be broadcast again?

Guess what I'm trying to say is, alot of semi-corny Eastwood films today (like Enforcer), were big deals in the 70s, since the chance to view them wasn't too often.

Man, how times have changed.  :)

Well you all enjoy your 20s while you can -- it goes by fast, very fast.

So do the 30s, for that matter.  :(
