For me..."Hang 'Em High" is Eastwood's best immediate post -Spaghetti Western.
Pale Rider's a good movie..Joe Kidd's kinda so-so...except for that great climactic train scene.
It wasn't till "Josey Wales" in '76...that he got it all together...& so well.

here's a radical thought, apart from Unforgiven and maybe High Plaines Drifter were all Eastwoods other Westerns just quick offerings to his fans while his real aim was the Dirty Harrys and his more arty flicks


Dirty Harry? are you serious? To me those are like cheap tv movies.

They were revolutionary for their time i guess(apart from the 2 made in the 80's)but don't you like Eastwood's character Firecracker?

The Dirty Harry's movies were the best of their type and most definately superior to the Deathwish series.

I'll take the first "Death Wish" over any of the Dirty Harry films I think.

besides Eastwood's obviously cool character I think the movies were a bit lackluster.

The first film has that wonderfully cool shot at the football field (Harry is stepping on the scorpion's hands or something...) and then finally the ultimate climax on that dock...but everything else...meh.

And Scorpio is too feminine a man to be scary. He is like a little girl and he comes off annoying.



The sequels dont fair much better. You get that awful one where some hippie's get a load of rocket launchers and start to terrorize San Fran with them and then their is the Eastwood Directed one called "sudden Impact" that is just pure rubbish(the coffee shop scene where Eastwood delivers the famous line "go ahead... make my day" is classic though).

The one that really comes close to being as good as the original is "Magnum Force" I think. I believe that is the one that other policemen become vigilantes and Harry has to take em down.

Scorpio does look a bit wussy, but I think he made a good villain.

Huh


awhile ago I put up a trailer of the Dirty Harry videogame.
you guys really need to start paying attention to me more Grin


Hopefully the game will be decent as opposed to the films.

To me, nothing significant came out of the Don Seigel and Eastwood collaboration (from what I have seen) except "The Beguiled".
