Worst to Best


Clint Eastwood is as tough as he always is, but everything in this film almost had me bored to sleep. It's to long, dull and forgettable.

The twin film to Eastwood's Letters from Iwo Jima and it's definitely the lesser film out of them. Flags of Our Fathers simply lacked the emotional power to truly resonate with me.

Some fun action sequenses, but they are rare and far between. However, Clint Eastwood is as fun as ever, and sort of saves this movie.

The Rookie (1990)

A decent action film that doesn't bring a lot of new ideas to the table. The chemistry between Eastwood and Charlie Sheen is however enjoyable.

Great acting, particularly from the always mezmerizing Kevin Spacey. The characters are terrific, and the story is interesting and it got a mystical sense over it that I really like. But, it do run a bit long, and is a bit slow sometimes.

Clint is really awesome in it. The dialogue between him and Ed Harris is freaking amazing. The actors are really enjoying themselves in this movie, and it affects me as viewer. Not to mention that the story is actually quite good, and develops in a good way.

J. Edgar (2011)

It isn't the completely masterful and powerful film I dared to hope for, but it is nevertheless really good. If you're willing to accept the fact that this is a jumpy film that focuses more on J. Edgar Hoover as a person, and his various relationships with different people, and not specific details on specific events in his life, you're in for a treat. It doesn't go so clearly into to much details of events in his life, just mentions it, but in doing so Eastwood manages to create a highly interesting character study of this man.

Much of the credit should naturally go to Leonardo DiCaprio's magnificent performance, which is highly Oscar-worthy. The film does have it's share of flaws, the end does turn into a few of the "biographical-cliches", and the old make-up is a bit distracting.

With this movie, Clint Eastwood really shows that he is able to handle other genres. This is a beautiful and hearth-breaking movie. Clint Eastwood and Meryl Streep are outstanding.

I'm not overly familiar with the story of Chris Kyle, nor have I read his book. So I don't know how different this film is from what actually happened, but to be honest, I don't really care that much if it's 100% accurate or not. But I do care if it's a well-made film or not, which American Sniper definitely is. It's a great, and ultimately sad film with a brilliant performance by Bradley Cooper.

Clint Eastwood skilfully juggles the different aspects of Kyle's life, giving us a nuanced look at who he was. The war scenes are tense and thrilling, while the scenes with his wife are in gripping and slightly devastating. American Sniper's portrayal of an American hero is a fascinating watch, and one that surely will stick with you after it's over. Regardless of what you may think of the subject matter.

Really underrated film. A brilliantly acted and crafted film that opens your mind for several ideas about what may happen when we finally pass away. It's a film that may not have been exactly what people thought it, but if you take it for what it actually is and go in with an open mind, I do believe that you're going to find much beauty.

Because this is a beautiful film. A delightfully slow, deep, calm and subtle film that deserves a lot of thought and consideration. Rarely do we get to see films that are as relaxed about huge ideas as Hereafter.

What I love most about Unforgiven is how it overturns the conventions of its genre and even Clint Eastwood's earlier work. This is a film that takes someone who would in most other films be the bad guy and makes him the hero and someone we can sympathize with, while taking the typical hero and transforms him to the villain. The film is an emotional tour-de-force with captivating performances and beautiful cinematography. One of the best of its genre.

Hi. Are you planning to watch Bridges of Madison County? Underrated Eastwood, I consider it one of his best both as an actor and director.
Posted: 7 years, 12 months ago at Sep 27 11:50
Bridges of Madison County is very good movie
Posted: 7 years, 12 months ago at Sep 27 12:23
I'm definitly going to try to get my hands on it, thx!

Bridges of Madison County has a great ending but I've always thought that The Rookie (1990) was somewhat underrated.
Posted: 7 years, 9 months ago at Dec 13 23:58
Personally I think Changeling should be higher on the list :) I do try and make it out to every Eastwood film playing.. Check out Hereafter as well... very slow and deliberate. I loved it
