There was a great debate on here many years ago where someone (can't remember who) wrote quite a lengthy and interesting piece praising and defending the movie. I think it was probably on the old board tho..

It's probably THIS THREAD. A 6 page discussion about Firefox?  Those were the days.

Thank Richard. He also got the av gallery back on the site, so if you ever want to change ... go to Forum Profile and select one of the other Eastwood avs.

First time I watched Fire Fox I didn't like it all. I remember saying this is probably the first and last time I'll ever watch this movie. I said the same thing after watching paint your wagon. But I decided to watch Fire Fox last week. And I have to say I liked it better this time around. It has some suspenseful moments. I even found myself on the edge of my seat a few times. First time I watched it I lost interest after 20 mins. This time was different. It held my interest throughout. With that said. It's still in my bottom 10 Eastwood movies. I just enjoyed it better this time around.

Watched The Eiger Sanction last night. I've seen this movie about two or three times before. This movie just doesn't do it for me. There's never that exciting energetic moment where it sparks my interest. The only thing is a few of the Eastwood fight scenes were good. Other than that never really got into this movie. I was hoping it would grow on me a little this time around but just never did. It's in my bottom 10 Eastwood movies. But it is a watchable movie because Eastwood is the star.

For a Few Dollars More.

Really ashamed to say that I had the Sergio Leone westerns for years on my shelf and tried them but didn't like them for some reason, they just didn't stick in my mind. Yesterday I watched Few Dollars and really enjoyed it, couldn't remember ever watching it somehow (perhaps too many stubbies over the years?)

Some clever scenes in it, liked Clint's scene with the old man in the shack who lives near the railway.   :) :)

Clint definitely gave his last great performance in The Mule.

Among his great performances, I would quote these pictures:
Gran Torino, Million Dollar Baby, The Bridges of Madison County, A Perfect World, In the Line of Fire, Unforgiven, White Hunter Black Heart, Heartbreak Ridge, Pale Rider, Tightrope, Honkytonk Man, Bronco Billy, Escape from Alcatraz, The Outlaw Josey Wales, Thunderbolt and Lightfoot, Magnum Force, High Plains Drifter, Dirty Harry, Play Misty for Me, The Beguiled, Two Mules for Sister Sara, Coogan’s Bluff, Hang’em High, The Good the Bad and the Ugly, For a Few Dollars More, A Fistful of Dollars

Glad to see Honky Honkytonk  Man in there, a personal favourite..

Honkytonk Man is also one of my personal favourites.
Though it wasn’t a box office hit, it was a turning point in Clint’s career.
According to Richard Schickel, Red Stovall, the character played by Clint, is anti-Clint.
Someone also said that if Clint was a loser in real life, he would be a man like Red Stovall.
Honkytonk Man is half a comedy, half a drama like for instance Thunderbolt and Lightfoot or Gran Torino.
Clint took some risks when he did Honkytonk Man. The same can be said when he did The Beguiled or White Hunter Black Heart because he played unusual characters.
Instead of making an other western or an other Dirty Harry, he did something different.
And I admire Clint’s career for that.
Red Stovall is probably the best Clint’s character of the 1980’s, with Bronco Billy, Pale Rider, Tightrope, Heartbreak Ridge and Sudden Impact.
In the 1960’s, his best roles are in The Dollars trilogy and Hang’em High.
In the 1970’s, his best roles are in The Outlaw Josey Wales, Dirty Harry, The Beguiled, Escape From Alcatraz, Play Misty For Me, High Plains Drifter, Thunderbolt and Lightfoot, Magnum Force and The Gauntlet.
In the 1990’s, his best roles are in Unforgiven, In the Line of Fire, The Bridges of Madison County, White Hunter Black Heart and A Perfect World.
In the 2000’s, his best roles are in Million Dollar Baby and Gran Torino.
In the 2010’s, The Mules stands alone.
His performance in Trouble with the Curve is fine but the movie itself is just not in the same level.

         I always felt Tightrope was more of a turning point for Eastwood. I always felt Eastwood should had got a different actor to play the Stovall role then himself. Though he wasn't thought of as an actor at the time, despite a small role in 1981's Thief by Michael Mann, Willie Nelson would had been a nice choice and the movie would had done better commercially. Also, I always thought what a great role that would had been for Elvis if his demise never happened in 1977......

Was watching High Plains Drifter last night after many years... I always said this in fact that Billy Curtis was tremendous in that role. That camera shot zooming in of Curtis when he hides under the Hotel is a money shot.......Interesting that Leone didn't care for the movie......
