Maybe he wanted to feel like Dirty Harry.   :)
I'm still hellbent on finding out what glasses he wore in The Gauntlet.

Maybe they were Clint's personal sunglasses during that time?
I think they were known as the "Dirty Harry sunglasses" because it was a very famous role and he was quite badass.

I think those are the same glasses he had in Coogan's Bluff and Play Misty for Me.

I had the opportunity of purchasing the track The Dead Pool for obvious reasons for about 0.89 cents a year or two ago.
I was unable to just listen to the short clips because my computer sucked.

I listened to The Dead Pool cover track once then deleted it.
Then I thought about what I could have used those .89 cents on.

Thank you, Paul Brooks.

The Enforcer shades are also Ray Bans. Mid 70s Vintage B&L Style 'A' aviators.  They pop up on ebay once in a while but very pricey.
Here's one with a differant frame color:

Oh, yeah!  O0
The Pool is OPEN!  ;)

Righteous Kill was, and I'm sorry to say, kinda boring. I expected more from De Niro and Pacino.
Even the Magnum Force line didn't cheer the movie up.

I'm the same way.
Only Sudden Impact and Magnum Force got that treatment.
The rest have a publicity photos.

And this time, it features a curious choice of purple artwork.

It appears that someone already has a copy.
Lucky SOB.

I'd rather wait like everyone else and get a fresh new copy.
Still counting... 20 Days, 23 Hours and 58 Minutes.

*SPOILERS*








Clint plays stubborn, angry old Korean war vet who spends his days sitting on his porch with his dog smoking cigarettes, chews tobacco, has a few beers and admirers his 1972 Gran Torino.
He asks his dog "Ain't she pretty?"  The movie opens with the funeral of his wife.  He was disgruntled even before her death.  Clint is described as still living in the 50's.  They way his grandchildren act in church
really pisses him off.  The fact that his son drives a foreign car pisses him off.  And the new Hmong family next door pisses him off.

He priest always asks him to come to confession...that really pisses him off.   He just wants to be left alone. One of the Hmong teenagers tries to steal his car.  That pushes him over the edge.   "The hell is it with kids nowadays?" he asks himself after an old women drops a bag of groceries and a few kids walk by like it never happened.  His character in this movie really hates how the world is today...and I don't blame him.  This movie has to be one of his best.  I can't wait for it to get released.  Even though I already saw it...I'd like to say I saw his final appearance in a movie theater.

I was able to see a screener.
And man, oh, man was it awesome.

Clint can literally never die.
I think he's still fit for more action movies.  Although, I heard this is his final theatrical appearance.
Clint's absolutely terrific in Gran Torino!

He can still play a mean, ol' son of a b*$@h damn well.

KC, if you get a chance to see it, go.
You'll love it!  That goes for everyone else!  He's still young.

I was more surprised when I heard This Side of Forever wasn't included with Sudden Impact.
I bet they didn't even bother to put in Welcome to the Jungle this time.

However, they are both film scores not soundtracks.

But, I don't care.  My long search is finally coming to an end.
I'm literally counting the days...

Now that I think of it, I really didn't give Code Of Silence a chance.
I'll rent it and give it another shot.  I remember I liked the music.
