Many times I saw in interviews Eastwood expounding about a Western he wanted Wayne to do with him and I could never figure it out until recently. I would venture to guess it was Josey Wales with Wayne playing the Fletcher role.

I agree on Nicholson. Absolutely.

I don't see Eastwood doing another movie for awhile. I think the fact that Jewell was a bomb regardless it being a well made movie and the fact Hollywood has changed drastically probably will temper his choices.

           I think a great deal of critics and people were upset with the scene with Sonia Braga..There were other conflicts with the casting, but that particular scene was really vilified.

 I liked Space Cowboys. I always felt it would had been more interesting to have had Charles Bronson in the Tommy Lee Jones role. Oh Well......The worst thing about that movie is Marcia Gay Harden's hairdo....

               Bronco Billy for those very reasons Jed with the cast was one of the good things about the movie, though @ the time of it's release I didn't care for the movie and everyone can conflict all they want with me, but Sondra Locke is brutal in it. Years later I can understand why Eastwood did the film.

Any Which Way You can is better than Every Which Way, probably because William Smith was a worthy adversary that was believable instead of a old looking overweight Walter Barnes Tank Murdock. One thing though, William O'Connell was a hidden gem in all of Eastwood's movies.

     White Hunter is still one of my faves of Eastwood.  A ridiculously neglected film by all aspects. I remember J.Hoberman of The Village Voice lauded the movie when it was released.. I can't even remember the last time I saw this movie played on a cable station. Has to be at least a decade ago.

You make a valid point Jed about that time with Eastwood's movies. I really became disappointed in his film choices and The Rookie though I don't dislike it as many do, it was below standard though I probably felt at that time at least it's not another Firefox or another movie with Sondra Locke.

       Actually Jed, I had read somewhere once that there was significant footage cut out of Kelly's Heroes that angered Eastwood. The footage gave more depth to Kelly's demotion and some of the other characters in the movie that would had made the movie better. From what I understand the reasons those scenes were cut out was to keep the comic aspect of the film more prevalent. Not sure if that footage still exists but it would be welcome if its included on the 50th Anniversary dvd edition.....

1: Letters From Iwo Jima (Masterpiece)
2: Gran Torino ( Eastwood's last great movie )
3: Million Dollar Baby
4: Mystic River
5: Space Cowboys
6: Flags For Our Fathers ( Ryan Phillippe ruined that movie with his wooden acting )
7: Invictus
8: Changeling ( Jolie miscast and movie is too long)
9: Blood Work ( Good cast but a boring movie)

11
1: The Good,The Bad and The Ugly ( Maybe the greatest Western ever despite the fact Eli Wallach steals the movie)
2: Where Eagles Dare ( Easily one of the greatest WW2 adventure films ever made. A classic )
3: Fistful Of Dollars
4: For A Few Dollars More
5: The Witches ( Eastwood gets kudos from me doing a completely different role..I would had done it too just to be near 1 inch of Silvana Mangano )
6: Hang Em' High
7: Coogan's Bluff ( Movie has not aged well )
8: Paint Your Wagon ( A fiasco of a movie and a legendary bomb...... though Eastwood's Mom would disagree)

1: Tightrope
2: Bird
3: Pale Rider
4: Bronco Billy
5: Honky Tonk Man
6: Firefox
7-12: The Dead Pool, City Heat, Any Which Way You Can, Pink Cadillac, Heartbreak Ridge Sudden Impact.......( Easily some of the worst movies Eastwood was ever involved with. Firefox has it's moments, but Eastwood I thought looked bored and considering some of the movies Eastwood turned down at that time and choose these instead, I still scratch my head....... The only redeeming positive from this decade is after Sudden Impact there was no more Sondra Locke in his films)

 I was checking out Box Office Mojo yesterday and It looks like Jewell is gone from the theatres. Didn't even see the movie in the movie list......Kathy Bates did get a Oscar nod for Supporting Actress......

             I'm only putting American Sniper which I felt was a very worthy movie. The Mule was the only other movie I thought was decent in the 2010's, but everything else I really felt were mistakes or a complete bore by Eastwood. Sully was ok. I'd have to say that Hereafter and The 15:17 to Paris are neck in neck as the worst movies in my opinion Eastwood ever made- certainly as a director. Hereafter was a fiasco and 15:17 is the only Eastwood movie I ever watched and walked out on after 30 minutes. Haven't seen Jewell yet.

 I'm surprised the movie is still in 2500 theatres.

Well, I don't count Honky Tonk Man as one of his best works, but I do agree in the sense that just because this movie has been dismal at the box office it does not mean it's not a great movie. I do plan to see it. Eastwood will always be important.
