The Mule 2018

Mr. Eastwood is one of those rare Hollywood directors who still get me to go in a cinema. I didn't know anything else about the movie than it's directed and acted by Eastwood and it's quite possibly the last such movie. Clint plays a fragile and somewhat senile crinkly who ends up doing drug trafficking for a cartel. There wasn't hardly any action in it, it was a road movieish character drama and it apparently was based on a true story, I usually hate biographical films or other true story based movies, but this was pretty alright, nothing "must see in cinema" though. Reminded me somewhat of Lynch's The Straight Story. I recently rewatched the great The Good, the Bad and the Ugly after a buddy of mine reminded me that Clint was the same age as we are now when the movie was shot. I hope I'll live as long as Clint so I can rewatch The Mule at that age. :)

In the honor of this great man, here's a real life scene from the 80's in which Clint shoots a bunch of robbing niggers <3

Oh, Mr. Eastwood, don't we all. Don't we all..

Ghostbusters 3 is going to fucking suck in a pretty major way. Especially if it makes money; they'll resume the 'Ghost Corps', this is Sony's death rattle.

Watching The Night Comes For Us, and the plot is complete incoherent nonsense but the action scenes are really well made and entertaining. If you've already got Netflix, maybe?

It was a fucking cartoon show in the eighties designed to peddle toys. Gen Xer's need to learn when to fucking let go.

What about the Real Ghostbusters? Pretty much every fan I've seen on Youtube always at least name-drops it into the review as that "one great thing that came after the original".

Remaking/rebooting Ghostbusters is a terrible idea for the same reason that remaking a Marx Brothers movie is a terrible idea.

People don't enjoy the original for the plot or the premise. What holds up is the chemistry between that particular cast. You can't just throw other people in the roles and expect people to eat it up. It's insulting in a way and I think THAT, and that the trailer was so terrible, was the reason for the shitstorm a few years back.

I think the window for a good Ghostbusters 3 (if there ever was such a window) was the mid nineties.

Even if Feigbusters was a direct sequel with the three surviving originals mentoring the Gashbreakers, it wouldn't have been good. Not in Current Fucking Year Hollywood. When was the last time a good comedy was released in theaters, huh? When was the last time you saw a good movie being released in theaters?

I agree. He's been a compete grouch ever since he started doing those pretentious Wes Anderson films.
