  • Clint Eastwood Celebrates Heroes in The 15:17 to Paris

    02/10/2018 10:02:44 AM PST · by Kaslin · 28 replies ^ | February 10, 2018 | John Hanlon
    When Clint Eastwoods 2016 drama Sully arrived in theaters, many people thought they knew the story of Captain Chesley Sullenberger. They thought they knew what happened after the heroic pilot safely landed his malfunctioning plane on the Hudson River in 2009. The film showed otherwise. It offered a revealing look back at the media frenzy and investigation that ensued after that January day. 15:17 to Paris, Eastwoods latest feature, tells a more traditional story. The new drama stars three real-life heroes who helped prevent a terrorist attack on a Paris-bound train in 2015. Alek Skarlatos, Anthony Sadler and Spencer Stone...

    New York Post ^ | February 8, 2018 | Sara Stewart
    Clint Eastwood is at the top of his game for about 10 action-packed minutes in which he directs a recreation of the events of Aug. 21, 2015, when three young American men thwarted a terrorist attack on a European train. Airman Spencer Stone, Spc. Alek Skarlatos and Anthony Sadler play themselves taking down an attacker (Ray Corasani), whos armed with a knife, pistol, assault rifle and almost 300 rounds of ammunition. This unusual casting move boosts the actions emotional heft, and those scenes are a tense, taut piece of filmmaking. But in the remaining 83 minutes of this movies brief...

    Full title: REVIEW Clint Eastwoods 15:17 to Paris Is An Eclectic Mix of Patriotic, Christian, and Cutting Edge And Will Resonate in the Heartland ***Dont believe the mixed or bad reviews coming in early for Clint Eastwoods 15:17 to Paris. I saw it tonight, and like A.O. Scott in the New York Times, I found it fascinating and much more complicated than a snarky dismissal. You know, Im Jewish and liberal, so patriotic and Christian arent two of the things I warm to in movies necessarily. But Eastwoods take on these real life heroes is not simplistic. The real...
  • The 15:17 To Paris

    Clint Eastwoods new movie, The 15:17 to Paris, is based on true events, where three American heroes stopped a terrorist on a Paris train in 2015, and it is causing the Hollywood crowd to go nuts. They just tried to put the kibosh on certain scenes that didnt fit their liberal agenda, and boy, that made Eastwood mad. So, the famous actor and director who voted for President Donald Trump just slapped the leftists hard with a brutal surprise. Youre going to love it.

    The lead promoter and founder of East Coast Comicon, Cliff Galbraith, bragged on social media about banning Christian conservative actor Kevin Sorbo from the upcoming geek convention in New Jersey because of the actors friendship with Sean Hannity. I turned down Kevin Sorbo for East Coast Comicon, organizer Galbraith wrote on Facebook over the weekend. Hes pals with Sean Hannity. Just cant do it. As with video games, YA literature, and tech, the comic book and nerd culture convention circuit has become progressively left-leaning over the past few yearsand East Coast Comicon is no exception. Its founder, Cliff Galbraith, advertised...

    RUSH: Clint Eastwood in an Esquire magazine article has come out and said that he's for Trump, gonna vote for Trump. He loves Trump. He said Trump is the enemy of the "pussy generation." And everybody said, "Holy cow, he said that?" Yes, he did. He said that Trump is the enemy of the "pussy generation." So all day on the Drive-By Media they have had members of the "pussy generation" on as guests. I saw on Fox not long ago a couple of women, apparently of this generation, and they were being asked what they thought of Eastwood referring...

But he's onto something, because secretly everybody's getting tired of political correctness, kissing up. That's the kiss-ass generation we're in right now. We're really in a pussy generation. Everybody's walking on eggshells. We see people accusing people of being racist and all kinds of stuff. When I grew up, those things weren't called racist. And then when I did Gran Torino, even my associate said, "This is a really good script, but...
