Oh, and let's not forget The Octagon which just so happens to have another one of our favorites, Lee Van Cleef...

The plot synopsis from IMDB, "The body of a sexy aerobics instructor is invaded by the evil spirit of a dying ninja."   ;D

Yes!  Great synopsis there!   :D
I too was into the Ninja movies like that, especially ones with Sho Kosugi.
I have the second movie on DVD, Revenge of the Ninja,
but I don't think this third one, The Domination, has ever come out on DVD yet.  Nor the first one, Enter the Ninja.   :'(

I hate the smell of rotting hay!

Yeah, CL, I think I can remember that smell, from when I was little at my grandfather's ranch in Wyoming.  What do you do to get rid of that stuff?

Saw Driving Lessons (2006) the other day with Rupert Grint (Ron Weasley in the Harry Potter movies), and Laura Linney as his mother.  Not too bad IMO.  Laura Linney reminds me of my mom in this one.  I think she plays those type of characters well.   :)

You are all simply the greatest!      Thanks so much for the birthday wishes!
I took a nice long weekend and have been swamped trying to catch up ever since.   :D
If you happen to notice my age now, I'm calling myself the "Perfect Square"   ha ha   jk    ;)

Oh, and in case you're curious, yeah, for my birthday I got 5 more DVDs toward completing the collection on DVD.  I'm almost ready to finally disconnect my VCR.  Although, next I suppose we'll all be trying to complete our collection of HD-DVDs or those Blue Ray discs?   ::)

I was looking for Happy Gilmore, but didn't see it, so I just went for Caddyshack instead.  Not that I'm a big golf fanatic or anything, I just like those movies a lot.  :)
And like lovelyrita, I might have answered differently tomorrow, but then "tomorrow is promised to no one".    ;)

Clint Eastwood Westerns / Re: Put yourself in Will Munny's place...
« on: August 23, 2007, 10:44:19 AM »
Plus, keep in mind that maybe some of Will's rage was brought on by the whoopin he himself received from Little Bill, nearly killing him as well.  Little Bill had it comin, and nobody else there was willing to do it.  And besides, I think Will realizes he is already beyond repair mentally, so it might as well be him.  Although, what does he mean when he tells Bill, "Deserve's got nothin to do with it."?

I can never get enough of Ruth Gordon as Ma in the which way movies.  I usually rewind and watch her scenes over and over, LMAO as she cusses at Clyde about her oreos.    :D

Or maybe I'll put in Pink Cadillac for the scene with Ricky Z, "Bzzz!"  ha ha love it.   ;D  What a silly character he was.

City Heat also comes to mind in the scene where he's just sitting in his car watching Burt Reynolds get shot at and doing nothing until a stray bullet hits his window or something like that, and he gets out all mad with that evil eye look of his.    :o

My list could go on forever, probably could put in any Eastwood movie and find a great scene to overcome my current foul mood, whether it's a comic scene or not.  Sometimes, just thinking about specific scenes and replaying them in my head works too.    8)

Ok, so Joe Kidd is near the bottom of my favorite Eastwood westerns too, but for me, that's just because somebody's gotta be down there.  Doesn't mean I don't like to watch it from time to time.  Of my all time favorite westerns, I'd say it's at least in my top 25 still.
There are some great scenes not to miss.  I especially like how Joe doesn't seem to be afraid or intimidated by anything or anyone, like he's already been there and done that.  And also, he does what needs to be done, that is, as long as he's got the right motivation.    :)  And also his character is a hunter/tracker, which is something that appeals to me as well.
Oh, and I'm sure you'd like to see Robert Duvall in this role, WeAllGotItCominKid.   O0

Yeah, it been very quiet in the nominees mailbox in the last few days. ;)

Hey Schofield Kid, I'm sure it would not be so easy to compile, but I would be very interested in seeing the percentages of who got what percentage of votes in each category.  Or at least maybe which categories were a close decision among which candidates.  Any chance of you posting that type of detail once it's all been calculated?   ???  Would be awesome if you could.   :D

Tender Mercies is a wonderful, trully beautiful, moving film. I think it ranks up there as Robert Duvall's best roles. When you watch it again, let me know what you think of it now.

Okay, so I finally got a chance to watch Tender Mercies this past weekend.  :)
A good movie, certainly!   I was especially impressed with Robert Duvall's musical skills, and that voice...  I had no idea he was so talented in that way.  I think I may have even learned a thing or two on playing guitar from his showing the boy in the movie.
    "D - like dog"    ;D
I think I might have to go out and try to find that soundtrack now.   O0

We sure have a close race here.  :)

Ok, I think I just broke the tie.   :o

High Plains Drifter is one of my favorites of all his movies.  At one time or another, I think it was my very favorite.  I'm sure I've seen it more times than any other, except for maybe the which way movies.

I love his disrespect and contempt toward the entire town in this movie.  They're all just garbage to him, to say it politely.  He forces everybody to sacrifice something of their own to prepare them for this "ambush".  And then as Stacey Bridges and the gang arrive, the stranger is no where to be found, leaving the town to fend for themselves.  The looks on the townfolk's faces when they realize he's not gonna just do the job for them is quite amusing.

I love Josey Wales too, but it doesn't quite strap me to the couch like this one does every time.  I find I have to schedule time to watch it, whereas with HPD, I just can't help but watch it again whenever it comes on.

Hey Tehama, You've seen Tender Mercies right?

It was so long ago, I hardly remember it at all.  Probably when I wasn't quite the right age to appreciate it.  However, it's now been added to my netflix queue, although it's showing that it's gonna be a short wait.

Yeah, it probably is the made-for-tv thing.
I think I'll try to keep a tab on how many actors from Lonesome Dove have also co-starred in Eastwood films.  I can think of a handful already just off the top of my head.   ::)

Now that I've read thru the entire thread here, I didn't see any mention of Secondhand Lions.  I liked that one perdy well overall.  Seems a lot of the people I've talked to about it enjoyed it as well.

Hey Tehama Tony! I'm a big fan of the TV miniseries/movie. I actually watched it the first night it aired. I wasn't going to miss that! Thomas Haden Church really impressed me as well. I'd love to see him work in another western again. I'm guessing you've seen Duvall in Lonesome Dove and Open Range right? Hell, even True Grit years ago with John Wayne? He was great in all of those in my opinion. Thanks for the recommendation though buddy!

Yeah, he's great!  Guess now we realize why Cap'n Call travelled all the way back down to Texas to bury his friend Gus.  ;)
One thing kinda funny I'll share, is what I remember as my first experience of Robert Duvall.  When I was little, seeing him as Harlan in Joe Kidd.  Man, I hated that guy!  :D  But now I can't help but love him, well at least the actor that is!  Still don't like that Harlan guy very much.   :D
I've recently seen the two "sequels" to Lonesome Dove, which are ok I guess, but now after talking about him again, I think I'll get out the original so I can see Gus some more again.    O0

This is a great thread, guess I didn't see it in here before, thanks for digging it back up!   :)

If you haven't had a chance to catch the TV miniseries/movie, Broken Trail, also starring Thomas Haden Church, it's another must see Robert Duvall western.
Here's the IMBD link... http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0482857/

Yep. I love Commando. There's a special edition out now or will be out soon, I'll have to pick it up. I haven't seen it in ages.

Great Flicks!
I must have used this line a hundred times myself over the years,
"You're a funny guy, Sully, that's why I'm going to kill you last."    :)

Yeah, I sure remember Action Jackson too, must have seen it 50 times on HBO and Cinemax back in the 80's, along with Commando and other flicks like those.  I still remember one of Carl Weather's lines, "Now you pissed me off!" as he shakes his finger.  Also, Craig T. Nelson's martial arts skills are hilarious when you look back at it now.   ;D  I think he made a better bad guy in Turner And Hooch with Tom Hanks.

« on: July 12, 2007, 09:27:32 AM »
I find these reviews here quite interesting actually.  What I think is most interesting here is that all my friends really liked this movie. ???  One even said it's her favorite of Clint's movies until MDB came along.   ???

Although, I can hardly see myself giving any negative review for a Clint film, I think I can agree with many of these comments here, once I begin thinking rationally anyway.  Usually, my opinions on Eastwood movies are very biased, at least in front of my friends, but likely not here with y'all since we're all coming from the same overall opinion in that we love him no matter what.   :D

Now that Richard mentioned it, I remember thinking that Jeff Daniels didn't seem to fit in this role, especially since I had recently seen Dumb and Dumber again.  I'm trying to think of a similar role to this one from another movie, how about we compare Jeff Daniels here to Gary Sinise in Ransom, not even close in my opinion.   :-\
