    Thanks for this excellent new Reel Review! I mainly know Andrew Robinson from Deep Space Nine; I’ll have to watch DH again.

    I was surprised to find a “new” episode…listened to your episodes like 18 months ago, and frequently relisten ;-)

    The “Harry Callahan Movies” will live on forever. I remember watching “Lone Cop” when I was kid and was in awe. All my friends would try to imitate Clint Eastwood—we thought he was a cool dude. His movies were intense, and always had an exciting ending.

    It’s unfortunate, because there isn’t a modern day Clint Eastwood in today’s cinema. The cop/detective genre is one of my all-time favorites. Thanks for the post.

    Throughout this awesome scheme of things you actually receive an A with regard to effort and hard work. Where exactly you actually misplaced me was first on all the specifics. You know, it is said, the devil is in the details… And it couldn’t be more true right here. Having said that, allow me inform you precisely what did give good results. The writing is actually pretty engaging and this is possibly the reason why I am making the effort to opine. I do not really make it a regular habit of doing that. Second, whilst I can certainly notice a leaps in logic you make, I am not sure of how you seem to connect the ideas which in turn make your conclusion. For now I will yield to your position but trust in the near future you actually connect the dots much better.

    Classic Dirty Harry! When it comes to tough cop movies you can’t do any better.

    I can’t think of any other actor who would have compared to Clint Eastwood in the Dirty Harry films – a great piece of casting.

    I love Clint Eastwood’s movies and Dirty Harry is some of the best. Take no prisoners! And as someone commented above there are no good actors like him these days.

    Clint Eastwood keeps his action scenes simple: No helicopters, no parkour, no explosions, no machine guns, and no swearing. Just a powerful magnum revolver, steady aiming, nerves of steel, and supreme badassery.

    By not doing unbelievable stunts (Chuck Norris style): like shooting more than six shots without reloading, or blowing up the car with his gun, Clint becomes a believable badass. He definitely knows his limitations.
