Clint Eastwood’s 5 Worst and 5 Best Movies as a Director, From ‘The Rookie’ to ‘Unforgiven’ (Photos)
[To clarify, in the best five, it’s Unforgiven as Clint Eastwood‘s best (making Bronco Billy fifth best), and on the worst list, it’s The Rookie as the worst (making Jersey Boys fifth worst)]

The Best

Unforgiven” (1992): Clint Eastwood held on to screenwriter David Webb Peoples’ revisionist western until the time was right, and the result was an Oscar-bestowed turning point. Evocatively, suspensefully detailing a desperate widower’s reckoning with his savage past, it tracked powerfully as both a pungent deflating of merrily violent western myths and a scarily tense depiction of how, as Eastwood’s killer tells a scared young man, “We all have it comin,” kid.” By the end, each gunshot is Eastwood mercy-killing a genre he loves, and knocking us to our senses about bloody movie justice.

Million Dollar Baby” (2004): A poor young female boxer (Hilary Swank) wants to fight. The trainer (Eastwood) reluctantly trains. Punches await, small, and huge. An unabashedly rich-in-feeling movie about toughness,

Clint Eastwood is angling to direct The Ballad of Richard Jewell, Fox’s long-gestating take on the security guard who went from hero to suspect at the 1996 Atlanta Olympics, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.

Titans: 20 Weird Details About Beast Boy's Anatomy

Although most often associated with the Teen Titans, Beast Boy made his first appearance in Doom Patrol #99 in 1965. Born Garfield Logan, he was created by Arnold Drake and Bob Brown. Just as Gar’s teammate Kory wasn’t the first hero to go by Starfire, he was not the only character to don the mantle of Beast Boy. There was another shapeshifter who went by that name in Adventure Comics just one year earlier. However, that Beast Boy didn’t last very long, losing his life shortly after Garfield Logan made his debut.

While he did begin his comic journey with Doom Patrol, Gar was added to the Titans’ lineup when the team was famously revamped by Marv Wolfman and George Pérez in the ‘80s. It was their run that created the Teen Titans that most fans are familiar with. During this time, Beast Boy was known as Changeling. Interestingly,

How Clint Eastwood and Arturo Sandoval Bonded Over Jazz for ‘The Mule’ Score

How Clint Eastwood and Arturo Sandoval Bonded Over Jazz for ‘The Mule’ Score
Cuban-born musician Arturo Sandoval is well known as a top trumpeter and recording artist in the jazz world. Now, at 69, he’s thinking of changing careers, and hopes his score for Clint Eastwood’s “The Mule,” based on the story of an elderly Midwestern horticulturist who stumbles into a job transporting cocaine for the Mexican cartel, will be a big step in that direction.

Eastwood, who plays jazz piano, usually composes the themes for his films, and sometimes even entire scores, as he did for “Mystic River,” “Million Dollar Baby,” “Changeling” and others. But thanks to Andy Garcia, who played Sandoval in the HBO biopic “For Love or Country,” and who co-stars in “The Mule” as a drug lord, the director and musician met at Warner Bros., initially to discuss creating the Latin source music that would be needed for a party at Garcia’s character’s lavish digs.

Now On Blu-ray: The Changeling Is Reborn On Blu-ray From Severin Films

When speaking about ghost stories on film, there are a few that immediately come to mind. Robert Wise's The Haunting and Jack Clayton's The Innocents are two of the best known, as is Peter Medak's marvelous The Changeling. Based on a true story, The Changeling is among the finest horror movies of the '70s, and a surprising "get" for Severin Films, who tend to focus on lesser known titles. Starring the legendary George C. Scott (Patton) and his wife Trish Van Devere, The Changeling manages to be scary and dramatic without leaning too hard on either tone, creating an eerie atmosphere and increasingly tense experience as the film draws near to its remarkable conclusion. The Changeling opens with a horrific roadside accident that takes the...

Clint Eastwood movies: 15 greatest films as a director, ranked worst to best, include ‘Unforgiven,’ ‘Million Dollar Baby,’ ‘Sully’

Clint Eastwood movies: 15 greatest films as a director, ranked worst to best, include ‘Unforgiven,’ ‘Million Dollar Baby,’ ‘Sully’
Clint Eastwood is back in the nation’s theaters once again, but you won’t see him on screen. His latest film, “The 15:17 to Paris” is a biographical suspense drama based on the 2015 terrorist attack on a Thalys train headed to Paris. Three American soldiers (Spencer Stone, Anthony Sadler and Alek Skarlatos) thwarted the terrorist and were declared heroes by the French Government. In a bold move, Eastwood cast the trio of heroes to play themselves in the film, but as a director, Eastwood is no stranger to bold moves.

For over half a century Eastwood has been one of the world’s greatest movie stars. Comfortable in both westerns and contemporary roles, his measured growl of a voice has been a key part in creating such iconic characters as The Man With No Name and Dirty Harry.
