In What Way Is “FRENCH CONNECTION II” (1975) Superior To “THE FRENCH CONNECTION” (1971)???

Two Words, My Peeps:

GENE HACKMAN

.Period.

(((Period Does NOT Count Here, Dammit.)))

😐

*** ***

*** ***

GENE HACKMAN

…Won The ACADEMY AWARD For BEST ACTOR Of 1971 For His Portrayal Of The Character Of “POPEYE” DOYLE In…

THE FRENCH CONNECTION

…And It Was Very VERY Much Deserved.

Based On This, If We Were Going By The Power And Drive Behind Said Portrayal…

…Yeah…

…The Math Says…

GENE HACKMAN

…Would/Should Have EASILY Walked Away With THREE (3) OSCARS In 1975, For…

FRENCH CONNECTION II

Maybe More.

😉

He’s THAT GOOD, My Peeps.

In Fact, He’s Absolutely Brilliant.

Yet He Didn’t Even Pull A Nomination For The Second Film.

😦

So Much For Math, Eh?!

New York City Police Detective “POPEYE” DOYLE Is A Classic Character Among Classic-Classic Characters…

…But He Wouldn’t Be, If Not For The Efforts Of…

GENE HACKMAN

.Period Period.

Two More Words For Y’all, My Peeps:

COLD TURKEY

.Period Period Perod.

To Find-Out The Significance Of Those Two Words, You’ll Have To See The Second Film.

BUT…

…I Always Tell People The Same Thing:

Watch BOTH Films, THEN Come Tell Me What YOU Think.

And I Stick By That.

Seeing…

THE FRENCH CONNECTION

…Is A Really Special Treat.

Seeing…

FRENCH CONNECTION II

…To Me…

…Is Even More So.

The Key To This Is…

…Oh Yeah…

GENE HACKMAN

😀     😀

I Love The First Film, Though Have Always Considered It To Be A TAD Overrated.

I Love LOVE The Second Film, And Consider It To Be One Of THE MOST Underrated Films Of ALL-TIME.

I Suggest You Give Them Both A Go, Kiddies.

I Doubt You’ll Be Disappointed.

I’m Already Curious As To What You’ll Say!

😀

Here’s Hoping Y’all Have A Damned Decent Day, My Peeps.

Do What You Can, At The Least.

Hang In There.

Take Care.

Be Good.

Need A Glimpse Into What I’m Doing Right Now?? Does THIS Help?!?!

Random Movie Mention: KURT RUSSELL in “THE DEADLY TOWER” (1975)

"THE DEADLY TOWER" (1975)

So…

…How Many Of Y’all Have…

#1 EVER HEARD OF THIS FLICK?
#2 EVER SEEN THIS FLICK?
#3 EVER KNOWN SOMEONE WHO HAS HEARD OF OR SEEN THIS FLICK?

Not. Many. Fo. SHO.

Not. Many. Fo. SHO. INDEED.

It’s The Story Of The Shooting-Spree…

…At The University Of Texas…

…From…

August 1966

.Period.

*** *** ***

KURT RUSSELL

…Portrays The Cold-Calculating Ex-Marine CHARLES WHITMAN.

 Our Ex-Marine Has Had His Proverbial-Cheese Slide From His Proverbial-Cracker.

An Obvious Case Of PTSD-Related-Symptoms.

WHITMAN Goes Out…

…Gets Himself An Arsenal Of Weapons AND Ammunition…

…And Perches Himself In The Famous Clock-Tower Of A Popular University.

The Ensuing Drama, Action, And Tragedy Will Very-Much-So Hold Your Attention.

There Are Many Secondary Characters In This One…

…That You Really Do End-Up Caring A Lot About.

It’s A Very-Well Constructed Film…

…Released Just 9-Years After The Tragic Events The Film Is Based-On.

It Was NEVER An Easy Flick To Find…

…That’s A BIG FO SHO…

…But I Was Able To Get A Copy For My Brother Not Too Long Ago.

He’s A…

KURT RUSSELL

…Fan-Boy…

…So It Felt Like A VERY Necessary-Purchase.

It’s A Story I’d Heard About…

And Then Became Super-Curious When I Found Out They’d Made A Flick About It…

…And The Star Was…

KURT RUSSELL

.Period.

The Movie Doesn’t Pull Tooo-Many Punches.

They Try To Bring It To You As A Film…

…The Way It Was Described By Those Who Lived Through It.

It’s Very Much A FORGOTTEN CLASSIC…

…And A More Deserving Film Than You’d Think.

I Consider It An Important Film.

With The World The Way It Is These Days…

…Shootings Like This Are Scarily Tooo-Frequent.

And It’s Been Going On For A Long Time.

Remember…

…This Film May Be From 1975…

…But The Actual Event Is From 1966.

Just A Flick To Ponder A Tad, My Peeps.

You May Think It’s An Important Film/Subject, Also.
