           I like Eastwood in Heartbreak, but to be honest Van Peebles over acting got on my nerves after 45 minutes. I'm not really a big fan of the movie.

          Caught Eastwood on an episode of Highway Patrol on ME TV, the great tv series with Broderick Crawford a few days ago. The episode was called 'Motorcycle A' where Eastwood plays one of two motorcycle guys where some cafe owner hates  motorcyclists- then some accidental death of a Highway Patrol officer happens. This might be Eastwood's first tv showing on film since the show was the first Season in 1955 which would make Eastwood 25..65 years ago!!!... hah...... Obviously the show is dated in many ways, but I liked it...Eastwood looked like a 6'4 James Dean......You can actually see the episodes of this show on ME TV and that episode on Youtube...


          Yeah, I mean Shane was and is a classic in every capacity. Alan Ladd, George Stevens directing. I liked Pale Rider and I always felt the casting of Michael Moriarity and Carrie Snodgress was interesting. Also, John Russell from the 'Lawman' tv series  who had small bit parts in previous Eastwood movies was solid as Stockburn.


            I'm not sure if it's 'underrated' but I'd have to say after everything said 'Letters From Iwo Jima' is Eastwood's greatest director's achievement.

 That spaghetti Western proposal makes no sense at all. That's even more ludicrous than people still suggesting Eastwood do another Dirty Harry.

At this point I don't see Eastwood doing Horror, or even a movie that is going to be a political realm. Not that he needs it, but Eastwood's movies with the exception of a few have not been box office standouts over the past decade. From my own perspective I'd like to see him doing something in the lines of what Scorsese has done with the impending 'Killers Of The Flower Moon.'....


    AKA23..It is a compliment..Actually, that expression is taken from a Steely Dan song called , 'Any Major Dude' from their Pretzel Logic album... You Tube it sometime. Great song.....


       AKA23 is a major dude.....


You see, I can't put movies like Sudden Impact as an example underrated cause it was a box office hit regardless if I think that movie was horrible and  movies like The Eiger Sanction I have to dismiss as well. To me, a movie like 'Bridges' probably is underrated to the extent it probably wasn't a movie his hardcore action audience went to see. The movie was superior to the novel and I would imagine the people who read the novel would agree. The novel was extremely popular. I've seen 'Bridges' and thought it was a modern day classic which draws back to classic Hollywood. In that sense I do feel it is underrated... I realize many people feel 'Perfect World' is underrated. I guess it is in ways. As much as everyone lauded Costner. I just never saw it. I always felt his performance was overrated- nothing special. I think I might had mentioned years ago I felt Mickey Rourke would had been a better choice at the time...


           I'd have to say at this point Tightrope would be a perfect movie as well. You can always go bowling later.


       I'd have to agree with you AKA23 on 'Bridges'.


 White Hunter Black Heart. A tremendously neglected movie that came out during a few years when Eastwood's films were not box office friendly attractions. To put movies like Sudden Impact, The Eiger Sanction and The Gauntlet on that list is laughable. " In The Garden' is maybe Eastwood's biggest mistake. A colossal bore.


    I'd start with The Beguiled. That may lead to all sorts of things.........

I have never seen either of the Once Upon a Time in the West or America films.

Well AKA23, I would recommend both films, just for the first 10 minutes of Once Upon A Time In The West which is one of the greatest openings of any Leone film.. It's a great story and many critics consider it though I don't agree the greatest Western ever made. It's long, but a worthwhile film. OUAT In America was Leone's passion for many years. A great cast with DeNiro, James Woods, to start with. I remember I bought the dvd of it years ago. It's a great story about Jewish gangsters in the prohibition era to the late 60's. Like IN The West it's long and has a few flaws, but a great movie. Unfortunately, both movies did nothing at the box office and now are considered classics. I agree with that. In fact, they just came out with a newer version of In America with 20 minutes of added deleted scenes which pretty much brings the movie to almost 4 hours. An epic film. Morricone's score for this film is haunting stuff.....

For me it's the Once Upon A Time Soundtracks. Obviously the Spaghetti Westerns are there as well. For that time that music was off the charts beyond original.

         Morricone's Soundtracks to Once Upon A Time In The West and In America are probably some of the most haunting music I ever heard. Especially the closing theme for OUATITW. That final scene where Claudia Cardinale is bringing water to the town workers alongside Bronson escorting a dead Robards on a horse is quite moving. There are some similarity to the Soundtracks of both those movies if you listen carefully.
