I haven't heard any of his comments yet either, but I gotta say that Clint endorsing Romney has got to hurt Clint's credibility WAY more than it helps Romney.

Because I hadn't heard that.


The crowd seemed WAY into it. So weird.

Not crap.

Hasn't he always swung from one party to another? Like most celebs at that time, he latched on to Obama because it was the thing to do . . .

Based on having seen The Mule and Gran Torino, Eastwood seems to like creating roles for himself in which he gets to say racist, or mildly racist, things, but wouldn't you know it, by the end of the film he's not really a bigot after all, is he? What a good guy, that guy!

A little ballsy in this climate, perhaps, but it would feel less dubious if he hadn't tried to turn Obama into a chair so that he could lecture him.

Hmmm...I bet Eastwood has a lot of views on the way things are done around here.

He's still a good enough actor though.

Still Not Crap. Dirty Harry alone gives him Not Crap Forever status, as Taxi Driver does for Robert De Niro. I didn't vote on this poll..?!..

Ok, now I did...

Speaking of Dirty Harry, if that, Taxi Driver, Ms. 45, and the Death Wish movies are any indicator, the golden age for being a disgruntled, trigger-happy vigilante in urban America was somewhere from the seventies through the early eighties. That was some sort of sweet spot the likes of which we may never see again now that superhero movies have taken over.

Ms. 45

Ignored movie. So great. Also catches the best New York era besides the Warhol-Factory thing (1980).

Just Say No Zoe is also a highlight.

I don't agree with his Bloomberg-voting policy...but I do approve of his Scorpio-killing policy...

Unforgiven is my favourite film of all time. Really like White Hunter, Black Heart, High Plains Drifter, the first two Dirty Harry films and Gran Torino.

On the whole I think he's a better director than an actor (the quality of his own projects is much more consistent), though when he's bringing his A game in front of the camera he's one of the GOATs. I think he should have stopped acting after Gran Torino, which was a perfect send off for what he can do. The Mule was not... great. Maybe not even that good.

Still, N.C.

I just saw The Mule. Hmmm...

It didn't suck, but I don't think it will stand up to repeated viewings like Dirty Harry or Unforgiven.

Went to see it in the cinema when it came out - haven't re-watched since because I'm pretty sure it sucks. The scene w/ the strippers in the drug lord's house... urgh.

A shame, because he did that story a million times better w/ Gran Torino, which sorta reminds me of that "last man left standing watching the weak inherit the earth" vibe I used to get from the Sopranos.
