Such sad and shocking news...
I feel like Ive known her forever, a lovely lady and friend.
We only met once in person, sharing a coffee and chatting in NY some years ago, we always joked that Id return the favour
one day here in London.. When I was quite ill some years ago I messaged her and she was so supportive and kind.. We continued
to message and I always enjoyed hearing from her.. such warmth, intelligence and a great sense of humour..
Im going to miss her so much ..
Its difficult to take this in.. R.I.P Kathie

23 Years Ago, a member simply known as KC joined a little message board on the internet called the Clint Eastwood Web Board. She soon became everything to this board -- a Moderator and eventually the main Administrator of the board. There was rarely a topic that she didn't weigh in on. She was a researcher, a bibliophile, and so much more. To me, she was one of my very best friends, for just over 20 years.

I am reeling from the email we received today, and I will have more to say later. Right now, I am in mourning, and unable to find the words that would do her justice. Then again, I'm sure there are no words that I could come up with to do just that. I would turn to her and ask for her help. She always had the right words. Every single word in about 10 or 12 languages in which she was fluent. Friends, tonight, please take some time to think of how amazing this #1 Eastwood fan and friend is. How much time she dedicated to this board, and share your thoughts with us.
 
Here is all we know as of now -- the email we received:

Dear Eastwood board,

Forgive me if you've already received this information.  I'm very sorry to let you know that KC (Kathie Coblentz) died unexpectedly last Saturday evening, from head injuries when she fell after having been struck by a car.

I was one of Kathie's co-workers, and we've been longtime friends since the late 1990s.  A mutual friend contacted me just a couple of hours ago, and I'm still in shock and disbelief.

Kathie was 73.  She leaves no immediate survivors except for her friends, who certainly include you and all devoted Eastwood fans.

Please let me hear from you if you have any questions, although I don't know much more yet than what I've shared here.  I know you must be as stunned and saddened as I am, and my heart goes out to all of you.

With best wishes,

Laura O'Keefe

Laura included an email address, but I do not want to share it on a public forum. If you wanted to write her directly please PM me.

All I can really say at this point is that she may not have had family, but she had a lot of love from friends. I will never ever know anyone like her. This is a hole in my heart that will never be filled. RIP dear Kathie, "KC".

I saw "News of the World." It was a decent film, but ultimately disappointing. It had good acting, cinematography, music, directing, etc, but somehow the whole was less than the sum of its parts. For me, I think the problem was with the pacing. It was very slow and the story was quite predictable. There is one good action scene!

I agree. Good film but painfully slow. Hanks is always good though.

I?m glad you?re enjoying what you?ve been seeing so far, Christopher.  The Enemy Within and Space Seed are among their best.    I recently rewatched The Wrath Of Khan again, still my favorite.

Mad Max: Fury Road (2015)

My first attempt to view this on cable 6 years ago was unsuccessful.  With what little I viewed then, I was disappointed and switched channels.  Even with what little I?d seen, I disagreed with all of the positive reviews I?d heard and was surprised that it received numerous Academy Award nominations.

The movie came up in recent conversations with friends and I decided to add it to my list of films to give a second chance.  I?m glad I did, because I loved it this time around.  I don?t know, maybe I had to go through a divorce and then a break-up to really enjoy it!  Ha ha ha, not really.  Those have nothing to do with it.  I?m hoping a sequel is in the works.


Joker (2019)

Upon hearing about this movie, I was curious but had no burning desire to see it.  Even after hearing good things about it and seeing Joaquin Phoenix win the Best Actor Oscar for his performance, I was unmoved.  As with Mad Max: Fury Road, Joker came up in recent talks with friends and I decided I?d check it out.

My girlfriend and I watched this last night and both came away very disappointed.  It was not entertaining.  It was overlong and dull.  Phoenix is deserving of his award, but I don?t consider him a good Joker.  To me, the best versions are Caesar Romero, Jack Nicholson and Heath Ledger. 


Overboard (1987)

Coming away disappointed with Joker, Cydney and I turned to this comedy.  My first viewing and enjoyed it very much.  Goldie Hawn is a doll and I?ve enjoyed a lot of Kurt Russell?s movies ever since first seeing him portray The King in 1979?s TV biopic produced by Dick Clark, Elvis.

Last summer I posted in the "What was the last DVD you bought?" thread about getting Friday the 13th: The Series. I watched several episodes of it at that time, and have now been getting more into it. I really like the show. It's pretty dark at times (some of the episodes are downers), and I'm surprised at the level of violence for a late '80s show.
