Haha, yea I love the backstory for Richard's question.   8)

Tagged twice in the same day, and four tags is alot really, so I'll do two:

Higgy-san: If you were going to show an Eastwood movie to a friend (Japanese or otherwise) in the hopes that they become a fan, which movie would you choose to show them?

Thanks Conan san, I like to show my friends first "Honkytonk Man" and "Play Misty for Me" or "The Beguiled" to discover differing image of Eastwood that they often know only as "Dollar Trilogy" or "Dirty Harry" etc; .....!!  And it works!!  O0

 Conan san: The movie that you do not appreciate very much, and why?

  I think it would have to be Paint Your Wagon.  Now I haven't seen the movie in a long time so I can't deconstruct it piece-by-piece, but it is just so bad in every way including overall plot, characters, dialogue, and even the music.  Its a curiosity, I mean Lee F'N Marvin singing is pretty crazy!  But nothing beyond that.

By a "Clint film," do you mean a film Eastwood directed and stars in, a film in which he only directs, or one in which he stars but might have been directed by others? There are multiple interpretations of a "Clint fllm!" :)

Dating Sondra Locke would be a big fat NO!  It has nothing to do with her looks. I just don't care for her as a person or as an actor either. I heard she's good in the gauntlet which I haven't seen yet. And she's pretty good in every which way but loose and sudden impact. But I absolutely don't care for her at all!  As far as my personal views on dating. For me looks is the last thing I care about. And hair color doesn't matter either. I go more on if I have a strong connection and her personality fun to be with and if we get along well. For me you can be the prettiest woman in the world but if you have no personality and your bot fun to be around then I would never date a woman like that. Most everybody's looks fades as they age. And nobody looks perfect everybody has something they don't like when it comes to there looks. My only requirements are good personal hygiene like showering, brushing teeth. And they don't smoke. Cigarette smoke has always bothered me.  Anytime I'm around a smoker it makes me feel bad.

My tags.

SK:  what are your top three least favorite Eastwood movies he's acted in. And tell us why you chose those three?

Smitty:  if you could take the place of and be the female lead in one of Clints movies he's acted in. Which movie would that be?

Uh all of them but mostly Tightrope  :-* plus I totally agree with you about Sondra -tries not to puke- so definitely not Lynne Halsey Taylor even though I sing and play the guitar a little.

My tags will come soon, I'm thinking of who to tag and what to ask  :o

Who was the most poorly casted cast member in a Clint film?

Keeping with the theme of the last few posts, pretty much anything with Sondra Locke in it. I think she's pretty good in "The Gauntlet," but I've never found her to be a particularly good actress. Had another actress been cast, I think the films in which she appeared would be improved, and I don't think she'd be in any of Eastwood's movies if they weren't dating at the time. That sounds like the very definition of "poorly cast" to me.

Besides that, I always found both Paul Rodriguez and Jeff Daniels to be miscast in "Blood Work." Paul Rodriguez was probably the most annoying character in all of Eastwood to me. I don't think Arrango was a well written character, so it's not all his fault, but Rodriguez's over the top performance was really grating.

However, if I had to pick one Eastwood character that was the most poorly cast I'd choose Bee Vang, who played Thao in "Gran Torino." The reason that I think he is the most poorly cast character is unlike the other choices, I feel like he substantially harmed the overall quality of the movie. None of the Hmong characters were professional actors, and  and in my opinion, it showed. Particularly in some of his more emotional scenes, Bee Vang just didn't have the acting talent or experience to believably embody his character.

In my opinion, while I do think Sondra Locke was poorly cast, I don't think any of her performances seriously impacted the quality of the movie. Even if perfectly cast, "Blood Work" in my opinion was never going to be a great film so the casting decisions weren't the main problem there. However, I frequently hear many people praise "Gran Torino" then follow up with saying "it's ashame the acting was so bad. It could have been one of Eastwood's best films." To make matters worse, Bee Vang has also trashed the film in the years after it came out, so he clearly doesn't appreciate the huge opportunity that Eastwood gave him. The fact that he is so ungrateful supports that he wasn't the right person for the role either.

SK:  what are your top three least favorite Eastwood movies he's acted in. And tell us why you chose those three?

The first two come to mind very easily. The Rookie & Pink Cadillac. Both these films aren't very memorable. They don't even fit into the genre of they're so bad they're good. The third film to choose is a little harder. A lot of Clint's films that I didn't really care for years ago have grown on me. One film I don't watch a lot and isn't liked by a few people here is Paint Your Wagon. I've probably only seen it 2 or 3 times mainly due to it's length but I liked the film. But I think if I had to choose another one it would be City Heat. That was so disappointing with two of the biggest names in Hollywood at the time and it just didn't work.

Tags to come.  >:D

I would have to say Chico in Dirty Harry.  I know he gets shot up and everything.  But I think it would be pretty cool working alongside Dirty Harry.  Ive always wanted to be a detective/inspector so why not work with Dirty Harry.

Of course. Quite often, actually. Two I've used recently:" Buzzards gotta eat, same as worms" (we have a lot of huge black crows and lots of road-kill in my area).

"Nobody, I mean nobody puts ketchup on a hot dog," is another.

Tagging:
 
AmericanBeauty: You're photographing the Golden Gate Bridge, and what do you know? You come upon a troll under the bridge. He tells you he'll give you one wish if you promise to give up photography for one year...

The gift: You can choose any of Clint's films, and step into it, and it would be reality, and you would meet Clint's character and go on a proper date with him.

Do you take the gift, or turn him down? If you take the gift, which film/Clint character would it be?


Masterchief: Are you still a Clint fan? What's the last of his films that you've seen (it can be any film from this website, whether he appears in it or not).

But.... maybe a different question, but I'd like to see him act again with Robert Duvall even more. Maybe in another Western.  8

Great minds think alike! I've mentioned this myself elsewhere on this forum before.

This game has stalled, but there are a number of people that can get it moving again. Here's the unanswered tags. Look for your name (they're listed alphabetically):

For AmericanBeauty:
(From Chessie) In the last ten years, what is your favorite film Clint has done?
(From Satu) You get to introduce Paris to Clint (with a beard!) for one day. He doesn't want to see the Eiffel Tower. It has been already done. So are the other tourist places. He seems genuinely interested in the city. What would you plan for him?
(From Whistledixie)  What would you say is the general image of Clint in France, both in terms of himself and in terms of America? Does he still have a large public image there, whether in the context of his contemporaries as Jed mentioned or in general? Around the time one of his movies is released, what do people say? I guess there are always a variety of views, but are there predominate ones in your opinion? A potentially loaded question. But then "potentially loaded" helped make Clint's career...feeling lucky and all that. 
(From Matt)  You're photographing the Golden Gate Bridge, and what do you know? You come upon a troll under the bridge. He tells you he'll give you one gift if you promise to give up photography for one year... The gift: You can choose any of Clint's films, and step into it, and it would be reality, and you would meet Clint's character and go on a proper date with him.  Do you take the gift, or turn him down? If you take the gift, which film/Clint character would it be?

For Antonis:
(From Rawhide7) If you had a chance to be in one of Clint's movies he's acted in be it as an extra, small role, or even co-starring role which movie would you choose and why?

For Bigdai:
(From Matt)  Your birthday is coming up, and you'll be 182 years old. So, if we were to put one Clint Eastwood film in a time capsule that would be opened 182 years in the future and which would embody the decade it was released in films, which ONE MOVIE of his would you put in?

For Brendan:
(From Matt) What are you doing these days, career-wise, and how could you be of the best use to an Eastwood film crew?

For Chessie:
(From Matt)  You just mentioned that you're "shooting a movie now".  So your next question is:  WHAT ARE YOU DOING EXACTLY? Can you say? Are you on the crew, and if so, in what capacity? Is it an Independent film? What genre? And since this is in the Eastwood General Discussion forum, please expand on  your answer to include what you'd be best suited for on the set of a new Clint Eastwood film.

For Christopher
(From Rawhide7) Staying with my question I asked SK.  What are your top three least favorite Eastwood films he's acted in and why?

For Clintan:
(From Antonis)  How about Death Wish starring Eastwood over Bronson ?

For Daisy: 
(From Matt)  What's your favorite Clint-directed film that he doesn't appear in?

For Dan Dassaw:
(From Matt) If there was one movie in particular that made you a Clint Eastwood fan, which one would it be, and how long ago was that?
(From Christopher) Sorry if you've addressed this at some point since you've been on the board for a while, but how did you become a Clint fan? (That seems to be a common question here, but an interesting one no less.)

For Dane with No Name:
 (From Conan) Clint Eastwood wants to remake a Danish movie for American audiences; which one would you advise he choose?  In addition to adapting the screenplay and directing, he also wants to play a role in the movie and seeks your advice.

For Elizabeth77:
(From Jed Cooper) You’re at the airport boarding the plane.  You sit down and wouldn’t you know it, Mr. Clint Eastwood sits down right next to you!  What is your initial reaction?  How do you handle having Clint as a companion for your flight and what subjects would you engage him in during your time together? 

For Gant:
(From Jed Cooper):  This is a two-parter - How long have you been an Eastwood fan and what is your very earliest memory of discovering who he was?  Was it on television, a movie, a commercial, through a friend and/or family member? 
(From Richard Earl):  You are at a bar and Clint walks over to your table and says" If you get me drunk, I will let you ask me about any time period of my life." What do you ask?
(From Conan): What would have made Firefox a better, or at least more interesting, movie?  Or is it great as is?

For Jed Cooper: 
(From Rawhide7) If you could get one autograph from Clint what would you have him sign?  Like a particular movie poster, baseball, boxing glove, picture, etc.

For KC:
(From Rawhide7) If you could ask Clint only one question what would you ask him?
(From Jed Cooper)  If you had the opportunity to appear in an Eastwood movie with Clint, which one would it be, why and what part would you play?   
(From AKA23)  Like all of us you are a huge Eastwood fan, but I'm sure that there are films that he's made that you might not have enjoyed as much as you might have hoped. So, my question is for you. Of the films that Eastwood has acted in and directed, which films did you find to be disappointing, and why?
(From Doug)  What prop would you most like to own from an Eastwood movie?
(From Satu)  You get to meet Clint again. I have a faint memory that you did meet him once in a book signing, was it? I also remember reading that it was a brief moment and that you didn't quite get to chat with him much. Correct me if I'm wrong. It's been some time since reading that post.  What would you talk to him about if you had one hour with him?
(From Shannonsmith)  If you got the chance to star as Clint's leading or supporting character who would you pick and why?   :police:

For LCat:
(From Schofield Kid) What's your favourite song from an Eastwood film?

For Man With No Aim
(From Antonis):  What is your first Eastwood memory (when & where) ?

For Masterchief:
(From Matt)  Are you still a Clint fan? What's the last of his films that you've seen (it can be any film from this website, whether he appears in it or not).

For Mike Siegel:
(From Conan) What is the best and the worst Clint Eastwood memorabilia you've ever come across?

For Palooka:
(From Antonis):  Which Eastwood film would be the best to add in your filmography ?

For Phantomstranger:
(From Conan) What is the most Clint Eastwood inspired Western that you've ever seen?  Not a Clint Eastwood movie, just which one was the most obviously inspired by a Dollars movie, Unforgiven, etc...

For Philo:
(From Schofield Kid)  What is your most prized Clint collectible?

For Philo Beddoe Jr : 
(From Conan) What is your favorite song from the "Any Which Way" movies?

For Southern cat:
(From The Schofield Kid) What was the last Eastwood poster that you bought?

For SundayJack:
(From Matt) Do you collect any Clint Eastwood movie posters or memorabilia? If so, what do you have and what's your favorite item?

For Whistledixie: 
(From Matt) Which is your least favorite of the Dirty Harry films, and if you were the screenwriter, can you name a few things that would have improved it?

For Christopher
(From Rawhide7) Staying with my question I asked SK.  What are your top three least favorite Eastwood films he's acted in and why?

This is a tough one. There are various ones I might not be a huge fan of, but I might still enjoy aspects of them. Like I might think of Joe Kidd as being one of my least favorites, but in all honestly, it's a movie that I'll probably watch again at some point. While not a favorite, I'd say I like it in some ways. So to answer your question I'll go with ones that I doubt I'll revisit much in the future.

Trouble with the Curve--I didn't dislike this movie. It was merely... okay.

And then Blood Work and True Crime--I enjoyed both of these, but again, they haven't been movies I've really wanted to revisit much, and doubt I will much in the future.

I think I owe about three tags.

For Rawhide7: I don't remember if you've ever mentioned this yet, but what was the first Eastwood movie you saw in the theater?

I'm not really sure who else to tag, plus I see there's a lot of unanswered tags, so if two others would like to jump in here, you could answer the same question I've asked Rawhide.
