^^ mobike, there is also a .357 Magnum, so that may explain your confusion. Other ubiquitous revolvers would be the .44/45 Colt and the .38/32 Smith & Wesson

Some of the later movies from Clint I liked very much were Pale Rider, Absolute Power and Space Cowboys. Best comedy from Clint is Kelly's Heroes.

Did you also read the book? This was the first Baldacci book I read and I must say, I was impressed. Pretty neat writing with good build up. However, I did not like the movie very much. Perhaps it was quite subtle and realistic compared to the book which had a fair share of thrill.

Best movie of Clint - Million Dollar Baby :-)
BTW, I never imagined he would do comedies. Need to check out that one

No atttempts for this one - In which movie did he shoot the maximum?

Glengarry Glen Ross - one of the best drama I have seen. Al pacino, Jack Lemmon, Kevin Spacey, Ed Harris, Alec Baldwin. Must see IMO.

4.5/5

Clint Eastwood was amazing as an Actor and he has become a phenomenon as Director. I'm thinking about watching all his directorial movies and I feel they'll be good for sure. Till now have watched Letters from Iwo-Jima, Flags of our Fathers, Invictus, Million Dollar Baby, Gran Torino, Mystic River, The Birdges of Madison Country and Unforgiven. Each one these were a gem. What i liked most about his movies that one way or other it touches the heart somewhere.

I also love Clint Eastwood.

BTW though I'm not a animation fan but watched "How to train your dragon", "Madagascar" , "Madagascar II" and "Kung fu panda".

Liked them all.

But the movie is so good it just did not matter.

Especially the scene towards the end as he is leaving the city and she is in the car with her husband.

Guys I have seen Gran Tourino, while its a good movie, I dont find anything extra ordinary in that movie & I fail to understand what the hype is all about.

Anyways I got a membership of NetFlix so hopefully I should be watching more movies from here on

I would rate Bridges of Madison County as one of the most everlasting love stories picturized along with Before Sunrise and Before Sunset. They are different and out of the world. It takes some finesse and quality to churn out that kind of movies.

And I must thank this thread to get to know these in the first place

I got a chance to see ' HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON'. Its the usual animation with very good sound effects. Best seen if you have a good home theatre and with your family. Be prepared to buy your kids a dragon at the end of the movie though.

+1000000 to that. These 3 movies are my prized possessions. Normally i can't sit through chick flicks or romantic movies, but these 3 movies are right up there. (Along with my other collector's packs of Carlito's Way, Scarface & Godfather I & II)

You forgot the .22 S&W which ladies prefer. Cute little toy that can surprise anyone with bad intentions

I am yet to see these movies. Clint in a comedy role. Wow, that would be something worth checking out. Does he actually smile or is it a grimace?

I am with you here. I am a huge fan of David Baldacci and collect his books and re-read them again and again.

Was it in Gran Torino that he shoots the maximum rounds?

OT: Btw, i have shot close to 250 rounds with a .303 rifle during my N.C.C days

I loved his Mystic River a lot and indeed his movies leave you with a nice tingling feeling.

It released long back in Hyderabad and was bad. Piranahs were looking quite artificial and 3D was a shoddy job and not half as good as Avataar.

Techno, don't look for anything extra-ordinary in his movies. What I found is that his socio kind of movies are to touch the sentiments with a simple story. Same for Bridges of Madison County and others like that.

Wow, enjoy..

Me too watched "How to Train your Dragon" last weekend, nice movie with good animation and great sound effects.
Another movie I watched the same day was "Usual Suspects". Guess I don't need to say much about it. Don't miss it.
