No, I just acknowledge true talent. From an accomplished pianist to actor, director and politician, the guy did it all, the guy is nothing but a talented legend and then to even direct and walk around like a spring chicken, that is nothing but miraculous.

Who's arguing with you about Clint Eastwood? Did you read my post at 4:39 pm?

That's like comparing Ab Lincoln to Jimmy Carter.

Yes, that's right. You might want to think about the logical ramifications of that remark.

To give Bass credit, he's acknowledged talent of musicians that hold differing political views from him

I don't remember Bass ever doing that, but in any case my comment was specifically referring to his dislike and criticisms of Bruce Springsteen, which he likes to pretend have nothing to do with Springsteen's politics and social attitudes, but which obviously do.

I didn’t. I addressed someone else who brought it up.

I know. There is a reason that the credit I gave to you was limited to musicians.

Then there was no need to bring up any musician for this thread.

Eastwood’s best performance, hands down, was talking to an empty chair.

Naw, Pale Rider was one of the best.

But as ever, you only acknowledge talent from your side of the fence.

Yes. In that respect he very much resembles Bruce Springsteen.

A good western man still going stronger but how many horses fell so hardly on the ground in his early years, does he not regret? Or at least maybe it's about time he can give donation to poor horses to be taken care of.

bass:

”a true American patriot icon”

In his final years, Eastwood now portrays interesting themes. Most are of an elderly person passing something on WHILE learning something from a younger generation. Well, skipping a generation, … or two.

Gran Torino. Then, The Mule. And now, Cry Macho or, without spoiling the plot The Coyote (Bringing illegals across the U.S. Mexico border.

Going strong at 91. Legendo!

A true American patriot Icon, is one of the best there is in the business, love the man.

Mike Milo (Eastwood) must travel to Mexico and retrieve his former boss's son Rafo, teaching him to ride horses in the process.

Yawn.

Might give this a pass.

Hollywood could learn much from this type of film making as opposed to the Marxist social justice propaganda they are furiously pumping out these days.

Ah, the old Hollywood "Marxist propaganda" trope, eh. You'd be a shoo-in for Best Comedy of the Year with a line like that. Well done, mate.

The story was different than I was expecting. Good Eastwood acting for 91. I think Eastwood fans will enjoy it.

A living legend

1 ( +3 / -2 )

It has been amazing to see the evolution of Eastwood’s career from his early days as the tough cowboy and cop to the more cerebral films he has been making in recent years. He is able to make films about differences among people that make you think not how to think. Hollywood could learn much from this type of film making as opposed to the Marxist social justice propaganda they are furiously pumping out these days.

First one here to watch, please leave a “SPOILER”-free review! - Looking forward to reading them and seeing the film.

You show ‘em how it’s done, Clint! - Eastwood is leaving an absolutely, great legacy with his own films.

And ALL, without the current kow-towing to studio execs, ‘no-nothing’ & inexperienced mewling ‘creatives’ and tiresome social-politics.

He should run for president.

The trailer looks awesome! Clint Eastwood keeps rolling them out, almost once-a-year now.

I'll give it a whirl on the projector tonight.

Amazingly, his work gets better and better with age.

Clint's recent movies have been understated studies of identity and vulnerability - struggling with Irish Catholic angst, demographic woes and senile naïveté. Bravo!

I don't share his politics, but who cares?

1 ( +3 / -2 )

His movies are great. Especially the more recent ones. They're obviously a reflection of what he feels about life as he comes to the end of it.

7 ( +7 / -0 )

I really don’t care about Clint’s politics. He is a giant of American and world film-making, and one of the great movie character actors of all time. Those who think he’s past it should watch The Mule, almost as good a film as he’s ever made. So if Clint has a new movie coming out, I’m interested.

Talk about loving what you do

Always liked Eastwood. Kudos to him for such strong spirit at 91. I wish I have the same at his age.

15 ( +15 / -0 )

Everything from him is amazing!

Start with the Dollar-Trilogy to the Dirty Harry Flicks until Gran Torrino and the Mule.

I watched the trailer for Cry Macho.

I want to see that movie!

What an icon. 91 and still going strong. What a wonderful!

Squinting Clint shoulda hung up his cowboy boots decades ago. His overrated movies are as dull and limp as his politics. He's just another superficial macho creation of Tinseltown boosterism that Hans Christian Andersen would have relished scripting into a suitable butt of derision.

Inspirational.

I’ve actually enjoyed his recent movies. They always carry a thoughtful message or two.

Too many deaths recently, had a small heart attack seeing Clint Eastwood's face on a news website.

3 ( +5 / -2 )

His movies are fun to watch, but really, throwing a punch at 91 is likely to result in multiple, self-inflicted broken bones......to his fingers, his fist, his wrist, and his arm. Still, I wish him well.

-1 ( +4 / -5 )

Big fan of his but his last few movies have been disappointing.

-10 ( +3 / -13 )

The man is definitely a legend, but a 'macho' western at 91??

-4 ( +5 / -9 )

Always stoked to see a new Eastwood movie come out. He's one of the last few who hasn't been duped by the "woke" bug. Eastwood's the man.
