EPISODE 8: Being Tender In Your Heart (or whatever sounds sentimental) Welcome back eager readers to the Clint Eastwood analysis. When we last left Mr. Eastwood, he was telling punks to “Get off his lawn.” It occurred to me that this is the way we know Clint rather than the way he is. Truth be […]

EPISODE 7: GOODBY HARRY, IM CRYING OVER YOU Hey, remember when I said this would be coming next week. Well it’s technically “a next week” according to the calender. Now then… onto Clint.

GOODBYE NIGHTMARES: AN ODE TO WES CRAVEN

Earlier this year I sifted through the NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET films and as anyone would expect, 1,3, and New Nightmare were among those that got the very positive notice. This is because they were graced, whether in the fullest extent or even the first draft (Dream Warriors) by one man: Wes Craven. Cravens name […]

EPISODE 5: BASED ON A TRUE STORY It was bound to happen folks. I could not avoid it for long. We found a group of films that DON’T… HAVE… CLINT! (Cue Dramatic Look Gopher or whatever this generation uses as it’s cue of suspense) Granted, 2 of the films in Episode Three did not have […]

EPISODE 4: HARDY HAR-HAR Of the films in Clint Eastwoods career we have seen him test his boundaries so often, one tends to never act surprised if he steps outside of the role of tough guy and into something such as grizzled boxing trainer, recovering alcoholic journalist, washed up carney, and tender yet ultimately disappointing […]

EPISODE 3: …AND AS ALWAYS, KILL HITLER! It seems like every filmmaker has the secret desire to tell their version of the Second World War. Countless filmmakers and actors have tackled this subject since the war itself began. It’s undeniable that the attraction to story tellers is that it is ostensibly a clear cut case […]

EPISODE 2: A GOAL DRIVEN MAN The concept of ‘man on a mission” is not something our subject created, but Clint Eastwood approached the phrase with a unique elegance. How else do we remember Clint if not as the man who would get the job done. In his 57 + film and TV career, he […]

EPISODE 1: STRANGE PLACE, FAMILIAR FACE A flashback to a period of a nation under pressure and all two kids can argue about is who should win the damn 2004 oscar. This was my moment at age 13 and I passionately argued for Martin Scorseses THE AVIATOR while a some blonde who kept telling me […]
