In answering those two questions yesterday, I forgot to tag 4 people.

Holden Pike: If you could hand out an Academy Award for best cinematography to an Eastwood film, which film would you choose and why?

Rawhide 7: Which film made you become a fan of Clint Eastwood?

LCat: I remember you posting about meeting Tyne Daly a few years ago. Did you talk abut The Enforcer?

Masterchief: Are you still an Eastwood fan?

Unforgiven

I remember back several yrs ago my brother bought me unforgiven on dvd.  He said you must have this one in your collection.  Back then I wasnt the western movie fan that I am today.  Anyways he said first time he watched it he thought it was too slow moving and even uninteresting during the first half or so.  But that the ending was very powerful and entertaining.  I remember watching parts of it on tv and I honestly remember saying that I just cant sit through this movie.  Anyways my brother absolutely loves this movie after watching it a few more times.  And my first time watching it all the way thru on dvd I too absolutely loved it.  Now not only is it my favorite western but its also my second favorite overall movie.  And I have been a huge fan of Clints ever since.  Of course I have always liked Eastwood ever since I was maybe 16 or so.  But it was Unforgiven that made me the huge fan of his I am today.

Thanks for picking me SK.

I would want it to be another western, especially if we were to star in it. I'd also love to see Robert Duvall in it with him.

Or.....  another idea is the Flint water crisis.  Maybe he'd be a Flint resident, retired from the auto industry (as he was in Gran Torino), and the film would explore the reasons Flint, once a strong and thriving community, has deteriorated to where it is today. Maybe Scott Eastwood could do some flashbacks of Clint as a young man in the city's better days.

Well, I'd go for you, of course.  ;)

(Yes, there's gay subtext in this post. Yes, I'm joking.)

The Unforgiven saddle would be pretty awesome.

As for a costume, since we won't go too deep into fantasy-land and talk about the poncho, I'd love this shirt from Play Misty for Me:

Suppose our current situation would make a great drama.

Matt:how many hours do you spend on the forums?

 ;D I think this is a passive aggressive way of asking if I don't have a life.

I work from home on a computer about 16 hours or more a day... and I check in on the forums throughout the day. I'm not typically sitting here refreshing every 5 minutes all day long.

But, that's not a good enough answer. I'll try the math version.

According to when I signed up here, it was November 27, 2002.  Using this awesome website: http://www.timeanddate.com/date/duration.html I find that I signed up 4,849 days ago (on this website, if we were to go back to the old board, I'd add a few more years).

Next, we look at my online stats: 



I'm just 10 minutes shy of 74 days, so I'll round that up.

74 days of 4,849 days is 1.5% of my time.

1.5% on a 24 hour scale would be 21 minutes a day, give or take a few seconds.

(Granted, it does help lower my average that I disappeared for 8 years).

All that being said, when I came back to the board, I found the community had really come close to dying... very few posts, most of the people I used to talk to were gone. To reinvigorate the board, I shifted my priorities from working 16 hours a day, to working about 3 hours a day, and rebuilding the board the rest of the day.

I am now feeling as though I need to work again... and the board is back to being healthy again.  I'm happy with it.  But, I hope no one is bored of reading all my posts and wants to see less of me.  :(

I'll tag people in a moment.

DOUG:  Since I'm not the only hipster doofus on the board... which piece of clothing that was worn by Clint in a film, would you most want... and I don't mean to hang up on a wall (like the Poncho) but to actually wear in a regular wardrobe rotation.

CHRISTOPHER:  We're going to try again. I hope I get a better answer than "I don't know"...   Imagine you're on a 5 hour flight from Ohio to San Francisco, and you're flying First Class. Clint is sitting in the window seat next to you, reading a novel. He's alone. Do you strike up conversation at any point in the flight? If so, what do you talk about?

Yes, no need to start a poll to see what the members here think I'd do. ;D  Given how the current poll is going, people would probably say I'd try to sing Paint Your Wagon songs with him. ;)

I would definitely want to talk to him. I would probably start by saying something about not wanting to bother him. When I do this at work with colleagues, it usually means I end up talking to them for a long time. :D I am a very quiet person by nature, maybe even a bit shy, but I wouldn't let the opportunity get away to talk to Clint at least a little bit.

I would make sure to tell him I've been a huge fan since I was a young teenager. Also if he's reading a novel, I'd want to ask him about that. I get distracted when I see people reading novels and want to know what they are. So maybe Clint would take a few minutes to talk about what he's reading, what he thinks of it, etc.

Palooka--Say you had another opportunity to work on an Eastwood film, and you had a choice between acting in a scene with Clint, and having actual dialogue for the movie, or a piece of memorabilia you've really been wanting, what would you choose? If you took the memorabilia, you could still be an extra in the movie, btw, but just not have any lines with Clint.

MGK--What genre would want Clint to work in next?

It sounds like so much fun to do! If I did that poll, I would definitely put singing Paint Your Wagon songs as one of the choices!  ;D

Reminds me of a conversation I once had on a plane ...

Holden Pike: If you could hand out an Academy Award for best cinematography to an Eastwood film, which film would you choose and why?

Well first of all, I don't usually like to answer questions about Oscar in a vacuum. Saying this performance or that movie "should have" won an Oscar is all well and good, but I like to look at not just the actual nominees but also consider what other great performances/movies were eligible that year but didn't even get nominated.


Shockingly, the only movie Clint ever directed or starred in that received an Oscar nomination for Best Cinematography is Unforgiven. Jack Green was up against Stephen H. Burum for Danny DeVito's Hoffa BioPic, Tony Pierce-Roberts for Merchant/Ivory's Howard's End, Robert Fraisse for Jean-Jacques Annaud's adaptation of Marguriete Duras' sultry The Lover, and Philippe Rousselot for Bob Redford's A River Runs Through It. Howard's End and Unforgiven were the only two that were attached to Best Picture nominees, and it was A River Runs Through It that won. Jack Green was not nominated for the American Society of Cinematographers Award that year. Howard's End, A River Runs Through It and Hoffa were nominated, along with Robert Richardson for A Few Good Men and Dante Spinotti for The Last of the Mohicans. Burum won for Hoffa, there.

Some of the other movies that year that had wonderful cinematography but did not get nominations are James L. Carter in Carl Franklin's One False Move, François Catonné in Régis Wargnier's Indochine, Ernest Dickerson in Spike Lee's Malcolm X, Peter Biziou in Louis Malle's Damage, and Jean Lépine in Bob Altman's The Player.

Of the five Oscar nominees, I think Unforgiven is easily the best of the bunch and should have won, that year. When you include all of the other films I listed, including the unnominated, I would still vote for it....except for one rather spectacular outlier. Ron Fricke's documentary Baraka was a 1992 release. It is one of the most gorgeous films ever shot, not just that year or that decade but EVER. If we can fix the Oscars, that should have been one of the five nominees, and in that case, even if Unforgiven was a nominee, I would very happily give that Oscar to Baraka. But if you want to play with the five actual Oscar nominees, yeah, it should have been Unforgiven.

Other Eastwood movies that I think at the very least deserved nominations are Bird and A Perfect World, both of which were also lensed by Jack Green. Those actual Oscars were won by Mississippi Burning (Peter Biziou) and Schindler's List (Janusz Kamiński).

Not that Eastwood hasn't had great cinematography in most of his movies, because he has, but taking in the competition from each complete year, even going back to the Leone movies as wonderful and influential as they were, Unforgiven may be the only one I think was deserving of the Academy Award (if you eliminate Baraka).

That may have been a more pedantic answer than you expected, but not if you know me. :D

I think lines with Clint would have to win out. That is there for ever. I'm just a temporary custodian of the props and costumes. I did a scene with Clint in TwtC, and if I never do anything else - I'm more than happy.  It's a great question though.

Higashimori: I notice that you like to watch a lot of classic movies from the 1940's and 1950's. Can you think of any movie that a young Clint Eastwood would have been great playing the leading role in, if he was the right age at the time the film was made?

 
It is not easy to answer such a question!  ???
Because I never thought about replacing Clint instead of someone who has already played his role perfectly!!  O0
But I can try, it will be good opportunity to refresh!! So I'll try to find out first in what kind of movie, comedies, suspense thrillers, westerns?
For example, I like James Stewart, who played in "Rope", "Call Northside 777", "Rear Window" and especially the role of Thomas Jefferson in "Destry Rides Again" that I have not watched for very long time but this one would be nice for Clint, too!!  ;)  And I thought Cary Grant, the role of Mortimer Brewster in "Arsenic and Old Lace"!! This will be fun !!  :D
And finally the role of Shane in "Shane" played by Alan Ladd !!
I confess that once having seen the first time " Pale Rider ", I thought it was similar with "Shane" and I really thought that if Clint played the role of Shane, "Shane" would be much more attractive!! Because the character of Alan Ladd was a little weak, too naive and lacks a bit more masculinity!!  ???
I notice although even Alan Ladd was perfect for me, until I watched "Pale Rider"!......

So I think "Shane" would be better if Clint had played the role of Shane and I loved watching it!!  ;)



Tag; Canadien Lady

First of all, I'm happy that you came back on this board!  :)
I'm sure and I hope that as your children are growing up now, you have time to enjoying yourself even a little!!
I like to ask you which Clint's movie you like to watch with your children for the first time? If it was done already, it was which one?

I liked tag this to KC but as you precise,,,,,,

Also (KC will not like me for this) don't tag KC until she answers her already outstanding tags. She already has so many it's hard to come up with the time to answer them all.

So this tag go to Matt!

I think I do!  If we don't count dogs just running across the camera, like in A Fistful of Dollars, then...

The Outlaw Josey Wales
Tightrope
Sudden Impact
Gran Torino

And my favorite, by far.... is from Sudden Impact!



Meathead, the English Bulldog.

I do love dogs, but I have a special soft spot in my heart for brachycephalic dogs... or in layman's terms "Dogs with shoved in faces", and especially bulldogs.

TAGGING:

ALLYCAT:  Hope you and your family are doing well! Name a city from one of Clint's films where youy've never traveled that you'd most like to visit.

GANT:  Clint is in London scouting locations for a movie he's going to be directing. You notice him and strike up conversation. He mentions he's looking for an English Pub for a scene, and asks which one you'd recommend. See if you can find a website or photo of the place that you'd refer him to.
