Clint Eastwood Movie Challenge...

CharlieCharlie Member, Administrator, Moderator, Game Master Posts: 5,750 admin
So I joined up over on the clinteastwood.org forum for kicks and they are having an Eastwood Movie Watching Challenge.  If you guys are interested...  I also proposed a cross forum movie night. If you guys think that is a good idea I can attempt to coordinate with their moderators...

    Yep, we're just getting into it over there--it'd be great if anyone else wants to join! :)
  • DavidDavid Administrator Posts: 9,702 admin
    Sounds like a bit of fun, although I just watched quite a few of them just recently (well at least 10).

    Great! And feel free to jump in anytime you can, even if you can't or don't want to watch them all. It's been ages since I've seen a lot of the movies, so I'm going to try to do them all.

    Happy enough to watch Paint Your Wagon again, just so I can annoy my wife by singing along with Lee Marvin.

    I'd be in, if only I had the time!  Some of his earlier ones I have watched in years!

    Space Cowboys and Heartbreak Ridge were on telly the other week, so had them on in the background while doing other things...does that count? ;)

  • CharlieCharlie Member, Administrator, Moderator, Game Master Posts: 5,750 admin
    So here is the link to the eastwood forum's movie night.  The best part is that it includes a drinking game!

    We figured it would help us get through that movie!
  • DavidDavid Administrator Posts: 9,702 admin
    I like the movie but...WTF?! A drinking game with pizza at 6am on a Monday morning?

    That does suck for all of you in Australia. But, what the hell? Why not?
  • MattMatt Member, Administrator, Moderator Posts: 4,505 admin
    I watched all the CEF movie nights over two cups of coffee.

    No I mean being Aussies we would be wondering why we have to wait 2 hours before we can start...

    So, Matt isn't the only clever one here.  ;)

    Figured I'd give a last call here for the Eastwood Movie Challenge over on www.clinteastwood.org/forums

    As Charlie posted above, we're watching all of the Clint Eastwood acted in and/or directed in movies, starting with A Fistful of Dollars right up to the theater release of Sully in September. It's about 8 months of Clint Eastwood, two movies per week. We have over 20 people participating, and we've had some great discussion threads about the films.  This is a really fun way to watch some of the movies that you've either never seen, or haven't seen in years, with an opportunity to discuss them all with people who are watching them with you at the same time, while everything is still fresh in mind. We're also making new friends, and just having fun.

    Although the Challenge will be open the entire length of the Challenge to anyone who wants to join, I call this "Last Call" because once we get past the Paint Your Wagon drinking game movie night, it will be hard to catch up to everyone and do the complete Challenge. Although the idea of keeping up with everyone and doing the Full Challenge is more for bragging rights and personal fulfillment (I know what you're thinking... we have weak goals in life, but just stay with me here) there will be small prizes to anyone who completes the full challenge and who is willing to share their mailing address with me.

    So, if you're interested in joining in, I'd recommend doing it right away before it gets too much later.  Here's a thread talking about the Challenge:  http://www.clinteastwood.org/forums/index.php?topic=10245.0

    Here's the Week 1 thread on A Fistful of Dollars and For a Few Dollars Morehttp://www.clinteastwood.org/forums/index.php?topic=10259.0

    Here's the Week 2 thread on The Good, The Bad and The Ugly and Hang 'em Highhttp://www.clinteastwood.org/forums/index.php?topic=10292.0

    And this week's thread:  Week 3  Coogan's Bluff and Where Eagles Darehttp://www.clinteastwood.org/forums/index.php?topic=10302.0

    Again, I'll emphasize you can jump in at ANY TIME, you don't have to catch up. But, if you don't do the full challenge, you just won't get the very tiny prize and bragging rights. I know, you're all broken up about that man's rights.

    Sorry, Harry Callahan escapes me sometimes. I should have used that name instead of Wes Block.

    Anyway, hope you'll join us.
