    Slap Shot with Paul Newman. Silly and fun. So I've watched three of his movies in the last two weeks. I guess something told me to do it. Man, he's great.

    RIP. Paul Newman was amazing. My fave movie of his is Cool Hand Luke. Such an incredible performance!

    I just saw it this week. Hadn't seen it in years. Talk about appealing! I can imagine when it came out, a real man's movie with the movie queue with mostly women!

    Butch Cassidy & The Sundance Kid - DVD + bonus material, in honor of
    Paul Newman - like a tribute viewing.

    This movie never tires, though I must admit it's really Redford and Newman
    who give it its edge. Their chemistry is superb and hysterically funny at
    times. What was especially poignant to watch this time, was the bonus
    material: interviews taken in 1994, 25 years after the release of the movie.
    A pre PS Redford and a funny Newman (still with that twinkle in his eyes)
    separately relating back to when and how the movie was made, and a
    1968 documentary on the making of the movie with comments of the
    movie's late director, George Roy Hill, whom everybody (except Katherine
    Ross who had an early falling out with him) reveres and admires.
    I love Hill's description of his two leads, that they really have most in
    common with the roles they played. Initially, years before the movie
    was shot, somebody gave the script to Newman who loved it and
    wanted to buy it to make a movie, with him as Sundance. But that
    all fell through. Then a few years later Steve McQueen called Newman
    to read a script with him and it was the Butch & Sundance script.
    Newman proposed a deal to McQueen to buy the script together and
    shoot it, but again the deal fell through for contractual reasons.
    Then later Hill got the script and immediately thought of Newman,
    but in the role of Butch and even later Redford was cast as Sundance.
    Hill said the way you see Newman in the movie: kinda wild and fun
    loving, was exactly how Newman was at that time. And Redford,
    though much more intelligent than his character, was also a lot
    like Sundance: a bit more moody and distant. I especially liked
    how Hill described the special friendship and chemistry between
    the leads, between scenes. How ".... you had to love Bob (Redford)
    for laughing at Paul's god aweful corny jokes, and he had so many
    of those."
    Paul did the bicycle stunt himself, except for the fall, as well as
    the part at the end between the mules - for the close-ups.
    Both stars rehearsed with Hill on their days off, that's how involved
    and dedicated they were. What you could see in the documentary,
    though, is how incredibly much Paul smoked (and Redford for that
    matter).
    They both said making this movie was the most fun they'd ever
    had on a set and that they'd cherish that memory forever.
    It was kind of sad, though, in the 1994 interviews that Redford
    said they were still looking for a script since they were still
    hoping to do a movie together, but that thus far all attempts
    had fallen through for either legal reasons or simply bad scripts.
    At least they left us with 2 fantastic movies that show their
    special chemistry and friendship to enjoy for eternity.

    HWBL -What a heartwarming description. Well, I guess I'll add that to the DVD list. Thinking about it, I could have seen Steve McQueen as Sundance. Boy, that's a lot of testosterone.

    Eagle Eye. It was totally different from what I expected from the previews but with that said, better than I thought it would be.
