    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…

    El to general és superficial, hi ha escenes absurdes i algun fragment amorós que ni amb calçador. D'altra banda, l'escenari i el context de la història són fantàstics. Què pesa més? Sens dubte els morts que cauen com sacs d'arròs.

    Pale Rider is a 'modern' era western that feels right out of Clint Eastwood's classic western period.

    So much so that I didn't realise until a few years ago that he had only made it in 1985. It just feels like it was made earlier than that, perhaps due in part to the fact that the 1980s weren't exactly swimming in examples of the genre. Classic feeling though it may be, it definitely has a whole host of revisionist themes…

    Another Clint Eastwood-directed western, of the few noteworthy entries of the decade. Eastwood reprises his "Man with No Name" role as a travelling preacher, who looks over a mining community owned by the Wheelers. The community under attack and threat by a greedy mining company headed by Coy LaHood (Richard Dysart), the preacher finds himself earning the trust of the Wheelers and the village's residents as LaHood's thugs get more hostile and violent.

    Eastwood as a director knows how to…

    I had seen most of this movie before but had not seen the ending, and after recently seeing Unforgiven I decided to begin to watch more of Clint Eastwood's westerns. Pale Rider definitely was similar to Unforgiven in terms of it's gritty nature and the fact that much of the backstory is left unexplained. Eastwood plays a very mysterious character who ultimately much more dangerous that he first lets on. He decends from a preacher to the gunfighter he once…

    Classic Clint. He was still packing a punch here, although he'd reached his mid fifties. Hey, who am I kidding, he STILL packs a punch at 85!!
    Great support from Chris Penn. Richard Kiel turns up too, but is underused.

    Nearly a decade after The Outlaw Josey Wales, Clint Eastwood returns as a director to the genre that made his name with this elegant, spiritual Western that riffs on the classic Shane.
