    If there were some way to sort my unwatched DVDs by how long they've sat neglected on the shelf, I suspect this one would have been right up there at the top. You see, nobody ever thought to point out to me that it stars Michael! Moriarty! and also that it's one of the most purely FUN Westerns I've ever seen.

    You see, Clint directs himself here as some kind of ultra-sexy supernatural gunslinger-preacher hybrid, who women find irresistible, whether…

    Pale Rider was the film that made me reconsider my response to Clint Eastwood the film director. Although I had got to like Eastwood the actor and star more over the years, I wasn’t convinced by his talent as director: at their worst I found his films obnoxious. (But his skill as an actor should be emphasized: maybe he has little range and maybe he doesn’t do much, but the very fact that he doesn’t do much means that Eastwood…

    Clint delivers the goods as performer and director of iconic moments galore, but his character's almost superhuman qualities are a bit silly - and some of the supporting cast are truly rubbish.

    Pale Rider is High Plains Drifter, but like it's star it has aged finely and is relatively free of cynicism. There is only 12 years difference between these films, and yet it is clear that Eastwood's attitudes to these kind of stories has evolved to something more cathartic and thoughtful, rather than the brash aggressiveness of Drifter. Like his views on the Western, Clint embodies his preacher with a wise and worldly attitude, with him unfolding the story through character…

    Ever since i saw the documentary on Clint Eastwood i have been fascinated by his life in general. Just think of it how many actors do we we know have successfully transitioned and become seasoned directors,we can just count by the fingers on our hand. The tribute by Jim Carrey is bang on. What a hunk he was in his school days! (hehe) We should always aspire to be the characters Clint depicts on screen,not per se,albeit there are many…

    Eastwood logra un western fantasmal, poético y metafórico, justo cuando el género estaba "muerto".
    El salvador divino que no respeta las leyer propias de su profesión (un predicador) y que intenta liberar del mal al más débil.

    That poor cow.

    The dog!

    What the hell was that? No demands? No stealing? Just wanton destruction?

    Get some pikes for when they return.

    Clint makes a more imposing Smokey the Bear.

    How many times do we need to see the stick in the air?

    "Nice piece of hickory" :)

    That's a rough ride back to town for Club.

    Do we need these random prospecting buffoons making inane comments whenever a wagon goes by?

    It's pop!

    "I brought industry".. ready?…

    A gorgeous Japanese ghost story of the Daimon master "Preacher" (His-Swift-Impetuous-Male-Augustness) who comes to life as a solitary samurai in the winter mountain camps of 19th century Izumo. The samurai answers a girl's Shinto prayer for aid in protecting her village from a brutal lord's unlawful claims to their impoverished farms and streams. Eventually, at goddess Aizen-Myoo's request, the ghost/samurai must confront the Legion of Nugget fighters and their leader Yamata no Orochi (Seven-headed dragon). Originally a story from the…
