:lol: I'm serious, but generally older actors tend to get more respect almost by default, particularly by the oscar voting folks since they're older as well and are fans of their old time heroes. There comes a time in every great actor, musician, or athlete's life, where clearly, they're not nearly as talented as they once were.

Mr. Eastwood is one badazz mofo. I like his action and old western flicks.

Too old, tries too hard, needs to retire already. Still a legend, but past his prime. Robert De Niro would've done better.

You can say that about action stars or hot actresses but you can't say that about CE. He's an exception because his movies are so realistic. He puts normal people in difficult situations. You see the character rise & fall. You see they'll do the same thing you & I would do.

Though I've only seen his later work, I've gotten to respect him as a great director & actor. He can do this til he's 100.

Watched it last night. Knowing this might be Clint's last movie as an actor, the movie ended perfectly.

. It was leading up to it, giving the barber 20 bucks instead of 10, and buying his first fitted suit ever. I knew it was going to happen. I just thought that Clint would have shot someone!

The key or sub-test to the movie is he said one thing but did another. No one else came to the neighbor's call for help on the corner. On my street if someone was getting harassed a neighbor would come out and break it up especially under the circumstances.

I think people would enjoy the film seeing it with an audience
