Yeah its not bad though you can tell that the movie was made by an American.  Is it just me or has Eastwood never directed a great movie (and a lot of lousy ones)?

Though they are certainly without blemishes, Bird and A Perfect World are personal favorites. I like Breezy and Play Misty For Me a good deal as well. While I don't think Clint has any masterpieces, he always seems to elevate the source material. His legacy as a director, to me, will be that he could take shit and make it worth watching: Honky Tonk Man (is that the correct title?) is a good example of this.

Blade Runner:Final Cut

From that other directors cut theres a few minor differences i could see.One is that the replicants eyes dont glow orange so BRIGHTLY as in the dc version. Another is the scene with the replicant asking for more life.Instead of saying a mixture of either father or fucker.Its simply father. The transfer looks great and the 2nd disk with the 3 and a half hour long documentry Dangerous Days-Making Blade Runner is also great.

And I'll stand by the fact that Deckard is infact a replicant.

A matter of profound indifference to me. Either way, the film is dull, dull, dull.

And tries way too hard to be profound, profound, profound.

I like the shootout in the mall though, that's awesome.

Manhattan Melodrama William Powell, Myrna Loy, Clark Gable, two boyhood friends who survive the General Slocum disaster end up on opposites sides of the law. Gabel & Powell vie for the affections of Myrna Loy. Gable is the gangster, Powell ends up as a criminal prosecutor who's conviction of Gable for murder leads to Powell winning election as the Governor of New York. Just before Gable's electrocution Powell finds out that the murder Gable committed was to prevent the victim from revealing info that would have derailed Powell's campaign.

Supposedly Dillinger went to see this at the Biograph Theater because he was a fan of Myrna Loy. 6/10

may i ask why,why,why?

The Hills Have Eyes (2006)

Great horror movie.Gory as can be without it being over the top.

Dangerous Days:The Making Of Blade Runner

Great documentry. Special Effects bit were the best part and those misplaced dialouge scenes are hilarious.

Hey, what's idea of this new system of yours? You already posted the 6 or 7 first ratings on that list earlier but it appears that you deleted that post. ???

And True Romance is no way worth more than 6.5/10, BTW.

Das Boot (1981) - 8/10
Director's cut.

Eh, I dunno. I guess I just wanted to include them all in one.

And actually I'd probably give True Romance a 7. It's not as good as any of the other 7.5's I posted.

Its been too long since I've seen A Perfect World, so I can't say.  Bird struck me as one of the most impersonal musician bios I'd ever watched (that is until I saw Ray and Walk the Line).  As far as Eastwood elevating source material, I suggest you watch the dull-as-dishwater Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil.

And Groggy, Unforgiven is good but certainly not great.  To be fair, I've never seen Gran Torino.

I'm guessing you're referring to the '88/Turner restoration. Does the 2005/Seydor cut get the same score? What about the original theatrical release?

Jenkins, is your memory that bad? I've noted by hatred for the 2005 version innumerable times on here.
