All films I don't really like.

I liked aspects of Paint your wagon, the stage show, and some of the songs... but the film is poor and horribly miscast. Lee Marvin apart.

Fistful of dollars... spaghetti western... over rated, all of those other films over rated. Unforgiven and Gran Torino, I found them boring and I groaned through the reviews and awards...

I know when I get older I'm going to have a lot of movies to watch from the earlier years 50-70s

But right now they bore me

Fair enough GE, but I still love Clint films, especially the ones I've named. Do you like any Westerns?

The films I've seen that you've listed are all great. I especially liked High Noon, Cat Ballou and The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance. True Grit is another good film. I like John Wayne, but I much prefer Eastwood; I think he plays a cooler role.

Have just spent the last six months working my way through the five star movies in this video guide I had lying around at home. I've gone back and started through the four stars.
