Hey I was just wondering what everyones favourite Eastwood movies were. ???

You can put your top ten down if you want 8), but mainly, what is your sole favourite?

For me its Dirty Harry. That was one of the first Eastwood movies I saw and its stuck with me.  :)

I know Unforgiven and Josey Wales are better, but I prefer Dirty Harry.

The rest goes like this. (in no order; except with Dirty Harry as number one ;))

1. Dirty Harry
2. Unforgiven
3. The Good, The Bad and The Ugly
4. A Perfect World
5. In The Line of Fire
6. Heartbreak Ridge
7. A Fistful of Dollars
8. True Crime
9. Tightrope
10. Absolute Power

So whats everyone else's favourite Eastwood movies? Post'em here and we'll see how differant we all are... or are we all the same? ???

These ten are some of my favorites, though the order in which I like them changes depending on my mood and on what I've seen most recently.  There's a few others that would creep into the top ten on another day... but here's the way they rate with me tonight:

1.  The Good, The Bad and The Ugly
2.  Unforgiven
3.  The Outlaw Josey Wales
4.  Dirty Harry
5.  For a Few Dollars More
6.  High Plains Drifter
7.  Thunderbolt and Lightfoot
8.  White Hunter, Black Heart
9.  Tightrope
10. Bronco Billy

10. Absolute Power


I just got done watching Absolute Power again tonight, and it's gotta be in the BOTTOM ten on my Eastwood list.  I enjoyed Laura Linney, Eastwood and Ed Harris's performances, but the script, the plot and some of the other acting was pretty lousy.  

Nightwing, if you'd like to start a topic on what you like about Absolute Power, I'm sure AKA would love to jump in there with you and join in on the praises, and maybe I'll watch it again and make a long and detailed list of what I didn't like about it.

I'd need to see it again first before I start a topic on it.

Its been awhile. But mostly it has to do with the fact that it was the first Eastwood movie I saw in the theatre. ;)

My top five or ten or whatever:  :)

1. Unforgiven
2. GBU
3. Thunderbolt and Lightfoot
4. Outlaw Josey Wales
5. High Plains Drifter
6.Escape From Alcatraz/Dirty Harry/White Hunter, Black Heart/A Fistful of Dollars/A Perfect World/The Beguiled/Play Misty for Me/The Eiger Sanction (I don't care what anybody thinks, it's a great movie)/Tightrope/Magnum Force/The Bridges of Madison County/For A Few Dollars More/et cetra, et cetra....

Tomorrow it'd be different.  Except the top five-- those I always come back to as my favorites, backed up by a belief that they're not enough critics in the world who can heap enough praise on those movies!  ;D

Like any lists concerning movie favorites, it's indefinate. I feel comfortable saying Dirty Harry is my favorite - most likely anyway. So here's a list of 10 that's in no particular order (in fact, after Dirty Harry, they're in the order that I wrote them down, going from the newest to oldest):

1. Dirty Harry
2. In the Line of Fire
3. Unforgiven
4. Tightrope
5. Bronco Billy
6. The Outlaw Josey Wales
7. Thunderbolt and Lightfoot
8. High Plains Drifter
9. Play Misty for Me
10. The Beguiled
Also, just because I don't want to leave them off, A Fistful of Dollars, For a Few Dollars More, and The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly.

I've always liked Absolute Power too, so if a topic gets started up, I'll re-watch it and try to add some thoughts to it as well.

As director only, as it is too difficult to compare Leone to Eastwood.

His best three films are Unforgiven, A Perfect World and Bronco Billy.

one and two would be dirty harry and gbu, but i feel that's like comparing apples and oranges. then it would have to be josey wales. after that, i don't know but i've always liked the beguiled and two mules for sister sara. and i suppose unforgiven has to get up in the top 5. i'm no big movie critic nor am i any good at dissecting movies the way many of you are but i know what i like and i like these movies. ;)
