Yeah I hear yeah perry. Not a big fan of hers either. But the ending of million dollar baby has always bothered me. It's just really depressing for me to watch that part. Rest of the movie is great though.

Million dollar baby

This is a very good movie. I enjoyed it as always. However the ending is the most disturbing ending for me out of all the endings of an Eastwood movie. It's just so realistic to life. She's winning and at the top of the mountain then next thing she's in the hospital. Plus it makes you feel bad the way her family treated her. But yeah for me watching the ending is pretty much unbearable.

Do any of you own this movie on dvd?  It's the only one that I don't own that Eastwood stars in as an actor. I see that Amazon has it on DVD the newest release date is April 15 2014. The other release back in 2011 says it's an on demand made DVD using DVD-r recordable media.

City Heat

Should have been a much better film. I mean Clint and Burt both in the same film. It does have a few good moments and action scenes. But overall not really a great film. Kind of boring at times. One of the weaker Eastwood films. Which there are very very few weak Eastwood films.

I hope you don't take offense because I corrected you! I couldn't resist making a joke about the song "The Streets of Laredo." :)

No I'm not offended at all. I needed to have that corrected. I still can't believe I did that. 😅

Both are great.  For me, High Plains Drifter has the edge because The Stranger closely resembles the The Man With No Name.  The Leone westerns Eastwood starred in are my favorites. 

Perhaps it's the mystery.  While the viewer is on their own with regards to the back story of The Stranger, such is not the case with Josey Wales.  We see he's a happy family man at the outset before tragedy strikes.  We see the reason for his bitterness and anger.  On his revenge seeking journey, we witness him unwittingly amass a new "family" and, depending on the viewer, possibly comes full circle and settles down on a new farm at the end of the film.

The Outlaw Josey Wales is one of Eastwood's best moments as actor/director and possibly even a better movie, but I still prefer High Plains Drifter.   I love the introduction of the character as he rides into Lago and watching the story unfold from there.

Great topic... I just may have to view these as a double feature sometime soon. 😎

Very well put B.C.  It really is too close to call for me. What he does to that town is pretty amazing. Josey Wales is tough and gritty. Very rough tough type of movie. Really too close to call for me. Like U stated I think I'll have to watch them back to back and maybe decide then.

Sorry KC I'm just optimistic. Will have to wait and see.

Kelly's heroes. Enjoyed it very much as always. Donald Sutherland really made this movie great. All the others were great too but Sutherlands character really made this movie. One of the few times that Clint gets over shadowed a bit.

Just finished watching Kelly's heroes and this concludes the four war movies. My feelings haven't changed. Kelly's heroes , heartbreak ridge, the beguiled, where eagles dare in that order. Like KC said Clint's character in Kelly's heroes is the least interesting compared to Sutherland savalas and rickles. But he is the central person in the movie after all it is called Kelly's heroes. But I agree with KC least interesting one. And his performances in heartbreak and the beguiled are superior to Kelly's heroes and where eagles dare. But for me when you take the entire movies into account along with Clint being central character I enjoy watching Kelly's heroes most out of these four.

The Beguiled

I've always felt Clints performance was great in this movie. All the women actresses were great too.

Actually I do feel this film will be nominated for an academy. Can't say it will actually win. But when Clints involved there's always a chance to win. I truly believe it will be very good suspense thriller and very heroic movie. Clint will make it entertaining and interesting just like American sniper and sully were great.

Thanks for correcting me KC. I remember saying Lago as I was typing but for whatever reason I typed Laredo. Not sure how I did that. I was watching tv so I guess I'll use that as my excuse. Anyways thanks

I was curious about that too. How many Eastwood movies have you been there on set?  You defenately have the connections.

Always enjoy pale rider. Great movie.

My bet is it's going to be a great film. Despite those things rookies no Joel cox non actors I firmly believe it will be a good movie. I think it's cool that he's using the real life heroes in the film. How many movies do that. It's cool to do something different outside the box. Lately clints directed movies have been stellar movies. American sniper and sully were great. Like KC said he's a risk taker and his risk usually pay off. Out of all the 60 something movies he's acted in his career there's only about 6 of those movies I don't particularly care for. To me that's pretty darn good.

Yeah this is a great fun question. I love questions like this. Comparing Eastwood movies to other Eastwood movies. I often ask questions like this myself. It's tough to say. Both are truly great. I enjoy both very much. Josey Wales is a tough gritty outlaw. And what he did to that town of Laredo in high plains was pretty enjoyable too. Honestly for me these two are just to close for me to say which one I like more than the other. Really there's only three Eastwood western movies that I would put ahead of high plains drifter and Josey Wales. And those three in order are unforgiven, GBU, and for a few dollars more.

Im watching four of Eastwoods war movies he acted in over this week. I've watched heartbreak ridge which was enjoyable. Watched where Eagles dare last night. It's a pretty good movie. Has some good moments in it. But for me it's slightly too long and boring at times. I plan on watching the beguiled and Kelly's heroes over the next couple of days. I always watch outlaw Josey Wales in November with all my other westerns.

Yeah Sutherland made that film great. Kelly's heroes is just fun to watch.

Very cool palooka. I am so jealous of you.

Thanks Gant  yeah it's funny I've seen heartbreak ridge all the way thru now 3 times. And have seen bits and pieces several times from being on tv. The first two complete viewings I personally didn't care for it at all. It actually kind of bored me a bit. But I watched it last night and I absolutely enjoyed it. I was well rested and felt good while watching it. I think the other two viewings I might have started it too late at night or didn't feel good. But it really is a good movie. And like u said Eastwoods performance was outstanding. With that said I still prefer Kelly's heroes ahead of heartbreak but it is much closer now. Kelly's heroes is fun to watch and all the great actors make it very enjoyable. It is a pretty long movie but other than that it's a lot of fun. But I can defenately see putting it at number one. Thanks again looking forward to reading what other members think. Thanks.
