    It's been awhile since I've watched Clint star in a Western and I must say this one was quite the fun! Eastwood plays "Preacher" (does he ever plays characters in Westerns with real names? And he's kinda the horseman of Death! And he's badass! He protects a free gold diggers. (Not the ones from the Kanye West song!). And all I have to say is: It ends in a nice shootout! The shots are beautiful and the story has a nice pace and is fun!

    Solid Western Clint!

    Pale Rider puts our favorite squinty eyed badass back in the saddle. Clint Eastwood is no stranger to the western genre, from the Rawhide tv series, to Sergio Leone's Dollars Trilogy, to his own directorial efforts High Plains Drifter & The Outlaw Josey Wales; Eastwood entertained and awed audiences but took a hiatus from the genre. Pale Rider is the most successful western from the 80's, but honestly besides Silverado & Young Guns I can't really think of too many coming out…

    Clint does SHANE. I grew up watching Clint's movies with my dad: this was one I liked a bunch, but he always thought was too slow. I still like it a bunch. Clint does his standard thing here as an actor, and, once again, the movie is made (for me) by the supporting cast and by Bruce Surtees' cinematography.

    Delightful, powerful, emotional. Eastwood plays another spectral anonymous hero. The polar opposite of High Plains Drifter: hopeful and passionate rather than harsh and pessimistic.

    As perfunctory as Eastwood's storytelling mostly is, meaning that at face value his films are largely open parables of moral certainty, his best work asks you to look deeper. For someone as prolific in the director's chair as he, it's not going to strike every time, witness Woody Allen. Pale Rider sits somewhere in the middle for me. It's handsome, and has its share of satisfyingly iconic 'western' images and scenes, but it also rests on its genre conventionality. The…

    Westerns are awesome. I know, I was initially a skeptic for these movies about the west and the Murican frontier, and the cowboys... but after viewing some John Ford movies my skepticism changed to excitement, and though the genre is still rated overall low compared to some of my other favorite genres, I appreciate the skills it takes to showcase the days gone by, Surprisingly despite my love for films like The Searchers and Rio Bravo it's The Magnificent Seven…

    If you like cowboys, Clint Eastwood, and kickin ass, then this is the film for you. It is an easy to understand white hat versus black hat, future versus past, tech versus old school, struggle and we find ourselves rooting for the underdog whose only chance against evil is Clint Eastwood. Great flick. Check it out.

    Western profundo, intenso y violento. Donde un personaje apocaliptico como Predicador encarna el héroe violento aunque en búsqueda de un ideal de justicia y defensa de las causas de los mas necesitados. Sobresalen temas como la amistad, la lucha por los ideales, la ética, los pasajes bíblicos y los duelos. Predicador Es un personaje inolvidable aunque al mismo tiempo misterioso del que no sabemos mucho, ni su nombre, ni de donde viene, ni para donde va. Al mismo tiempo, es…

    Eastwood has done thousands of westerns, and it is hard not to see this one as rather, well, pale in comparison. It feels like it takes on a tired and old storyline that you have seen many times before, and made in 1985 it also feels like it came a few years too late. Not that you can't make westerns nowadays, but this one just felt more like a camping trip than a real classic western. Eastwood is great at…
