  • Best Clint Eastwood film?

    Dear All,

    I bought 'Gran Torino' on DVD today as I didn't get the chance to watch it at the cinema, so I am looking forward to watching it over the weekend.

    I have always been a fan of Eastwood's films from as long as I have been old enough to appreciate them and I was wondering what ACG members might consider to be his best or favourite film(s)?

    I have always enjoyed 'Dirty Harry' and 'High Plains Drifter' - does anybody else have an opinion?

    I wouldn't know where to start...The Unforgiven? Dirty Harry? Play Misty For Me? Line Of Fire? Westerns? Detectives? Bad guys? Good guys?

    Terrific actor who has come a long ways from Rowdy Yates.

      Thats sort of my point - he isn't a one trick pony, is he? He has covered such a wide range and is a master both in front and behind of the camera.

      In my opinion, he has few equals and no betters.

        Gran Torino is an excellent film that shows what Clint Eastwood is capable of..as an actor and director..all time favorite though is probably The Outlaw Josey Wales and the Good the Bad and the Ugly..classic Clint Eastwood..I could go on and on...also Unforgiven..

            I'll cast a third vote for Josey Wales...But my second choice would be Dirty Harry. I haven't seen Gran Torino yet. Clint was great in Million Dollar Baby - But that has to be the most depressing movie that I have ever seen.

              Continuing on with the love fest for dear Clint...

              Picking a one best would be hard. The Dirty Harry movies weren't my favorite, but they were a little before my time. I loved Gran Torino. I had high expectations and it surpassed them. Can't name one favorite though.

                    If you can't set a good example, be a glaring warning.

                      I watched "Two Mules for Sister Sarah" a few weeks ago and I think that its kind of under rated. "Pale Rider" I think is vastly under rated, its probably my 3rd most favorite Eastwood film. "Heartbreak Ridge" is an average movie, but has some truly classic lines............

                        How about Every Which Way But Loose? not a real serious movie but vastly entertaining..

                            Does he have to be the lead for it to be a Clint Eastwood film?

                            I liked him in all his films, even the early ones like Where Eagles Dare.

                            I didn't for a long time either.
