I don’t believe we have a thread dedicated to the legend that is Clint Eastwood. Not only a great actor, but one of the greatest directors working today. He starred in the first film I ever remember watching, a film which to this day is my 2nd greatest film of all time. My dad is a huge Eastwood fan, so I have grown up with Eastwood and for that reason I feel closer to him than many other actors/directors.
My top 5 films Eastwood has directed/starred in:
- The Good, the Bad and the Ugly
- Mystic River
- For a Few Dollars More
- A Fistful of Dollars
Other worthy mentions:
The Outlaw Josey Wales, Million Dollar Baby, Escape From Alcatraz and Magnum Force.
I’m ashamed to say I haven’t yet watched his WWII companion piece epics (even though I have had them on DVD for a year). I look forward to watching Changeling and Grand Torino soon, too.
At 78, look how great he looks. Check out this video:
