Which of Clint Eastwood's movies do you think is God's favorite?
Slyfox

Posted on 09/05/2012 10:47:35 AM PDT by Slyfox

I often wonder what God must be thinking as He watches today's events. He must not be happy.

In fact, I think his response will not be too different from Clint Eastwood's.

Clint Eastwood in his movies.

I wonder what movie is God's favorite Eastwood movie?

I think "Gran Torino" would be Christ's favorite.

Unforgiven.

“Its a hell of a thing, ain’t it, killing a man. You take away everything he’s got...and everything he’s ever gonna have...”

The Outlaw Josey Wales is about as good as they get.

I think Unforgiven is possibly the best western ever made but the epilogue was what got me:

Some years later, Mrs. Ansonia Feathers made the arduous journey to Hodgeman County, Kansas to visit the last resting place of her only daughter. William Munny had long since disappeared with the children... some said to San Francisco where it was rumored he prospered in dry goods. And there was nothing on the marker to explain to Mrs. Feathers why her only daughter had married a known thief and murderer, a man of notoriously vicious and intemperate disposition.

That is a bizarre question.

I will say however, that Eastwood's repulsive, anti-life paean to euthanasia, Million Dollar Baby, should be eliminated from the running.

Eastwood is a social liberal, fiscal conservative —LIBERTARIAN!

His movie ‘Million Dollar Baby’ was an advocate film for assisted suicide. He believes in the Culture of Death. He believes in factors of convenience and secularist concerns for humanity on both ends of the life spectrum: from pro-abortion to assisted-suicide for the sick and elderly. He is also pro-gay marriage. All the things that are really not pro-family.

But he’s a really sensible fiscal conservative!

In being Christian be careful who you worship and look up to in Hollywood.

I agree, definitely UNFORGIVEN.
By the title alone, it would have to be.
To my mind, one of the very best American movies of the past
20 years, maybe THE best. But if it was possible to consult God, we might
find out it’s DIRTY HARRY.

I like “Dirty Harry” best — the first in the series.

BTW, wasn’t “The Beguiled” absolutely freaky?

God absolutely LOVES “The Good, The Bad and The Ugly”, but only because it has Tuco (Eli Wallach) in it.

Heartbreak Ridge

For us, Christ saw our sin problem, then began, from Genesis on, to adapt, improvise and OVERCOME.

Then we, in turn, OVERCOME the beast, the dragon, the antichrist, that old serpent the devil, by the Blood of the Lamb and the word of His Gospel testimony. And we get the victory.

We may or may not smoke a big stogie, taken off the body of a dead Cuban, afterward.

I think God views human politics the way we might view Super Mario Brothers (video game).

I think God is more concerned and focussed on the development of each individual soul amidst the chaos we have created for ourselves via free choice in this life.

He knows, he cares and he may offer guidance individually. But I believe it is all static and clutter that contributes to the environment in which we exist while we get to better know, love and worship him.

I don’t think he spends much time worrying about Hollywood other than it has the word ‘Holy’ in it, sort of.

If you think that God is concerned with, or watches, movies, your god is just a god. You can put that kind of a god on a shelf or in the stove for heat.

I loved “Lonesome Dove” the book but hated the movie. That did not seem like Call and Gus to me. Actually I liked James Garner’s Call in “Streets of Laredo” better but I’ve known other “Lonesome Dove” fans who disagreed. Actually I couldn’t finish the movie version. Tommy Lee jones acted like a clown instead of the book’s stoic Call.

Well, that probably puts Where Eagles Dare at the top of the Almighty's list. That was an entire Alpine castle full of Nazis for Him to sort.

Every Which Way But Loose. God has a thing for Sondra Locke and thinks orangutans are cute. At least that’s what some homeless guy told me who claims to talk to God daily.

If you’re going that route, don’t forget “The Eiger Sanction” ... lower total body count, but higher percentage.

Hard to narrow it down to just one.

Three of my favorites are:

The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

Dirty Harry

In The Line of Fire

Clint Eastwood made his first film appearance in Revenge of the Creature (1955).

I loved Clint Eastwood’s performance at the RNC but I despised Million Dollar Baby - a tribute, as you say, to Euthanasia. I also hated Outlaw Josey Wales which had a horrifying rape or semi-rape scene that had me screaming to my husband to get it off the tv. Also, Clint has not been nice to his ex-paramours: Sondra Locke and Frances Fisher. Changed the locks on the house when he got tired of him!

That said, I appreciate his performance the other night.

Hammerhead, best western is “Lonesome Dove”? Sorry, You’re not even close. A tossup for me between “She Wore A Yellow Ribbon” and “The Cowboys”. Both Duke movies.

AS far as Clint goes I agree with Migraine, it’s “Heartbreak Ridge”.

And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth. Revelation 6:8

Preacher did ride a pale horse in the movie. So, I'd have to agree with you, Clint's movie Pale Rider might be the Lord's movie of choice.
