He kept his word-(don't get me wrong, I love *Eastwood in his films, but after one of all-time greatest Westerns in 1992 4 time *Oscar sweeping *UNFORGIVEN (made $102m.) he outright said he'd never make another Western & hasn't in the 26yrs since.

    On Demand Titles decreased

    Just to let others know I watched On Demand about every day, as well as channel surf & in regard to TCM's section on it I never see many flix offered on it & this has been the norm for a couple yrs now?

    Awards season 2018-2019

    Despite it not being a huge $Box-0ffice smash, may end up between $60 & $70m domestically. It may still nab the most noms After all the tremendous 1983 THE RIGHT STUFF only raked in $23m.

I'm certain you'll post them, or I may have overlooked them (P.S. you beat a couple other websites with their dates still posted from last year instead?)

    Films of 2018

    Unfortunately I had planned to go & check out FIRST MAN for my 54th birthday-(Nov. 8th), but most local theaters down here already pulled the sci-fi epic? So hope to see CREED II-(AKA: ROCKY 8 instead when it opens (P.S. Sly stated if there is a CREED II he plans to kill of THE ROCK!)

    Films of 2018

    At this very early stage of my personal favorite annual game,etc ROMA appears to be the very early frontrunner for BP & RAMI MALEK in "Bohemian Rhapsody" or CHRISTAN BALE in "Vice" seem to lead for Best Actor Gold & in my view 6 time contender & loser GLENN CLOSE I've thought for months is the leader to final score in "The Wife"
