I agree with everyone regarding the order of quality of the movies being ranked in chronological order.

The order of my favourites is...

Dirty Harry

Sudden Impact

Magnum Force

The Enforcer

The Dead Pool

...I think they missed an opportunity for one more. It could have surrounded by Callahan on the verge of retirement and one last caper to solve.
SE7EN, with Clint Eastwood instead of Morgan Freeman?
Well, for numerical precision, Sixth Sense w/Clint instead of Bruce - like a fever dream after being shot? - then back to the day job for Se7en!

I've only seen the first two and Dead Pool.  Dead Pool is the worst and right up there with Pink Cadillac, J Edgar and City Heat among Clint's worst I've seen.

I saw City Heat in the theater as a kid and loved it. Is it that bad? I remember the audience loving it. I know Reynolds was all messed up physically, but he still got some laughs I recall.

Yeah, I saw it on Starz recently and the troubled production from what I've read about shows in this movie.  Burt hurt his jaw so bad he could only drink instead of eating solid foods which led up to him losing weight.  It shows in the trailer for Stick that came out a year later.

I remember reading that in Burt's autobiography (it's great). He got in a car accident and smashed up his face. He was miserable during the production (but he probably needed the money badly).

EDIT -

I was wrong about that - he broke his jaw shooting a fight scene for the film:

Quote


Filming began in February 1984. On the first day, Reynolds was accidentally hit in the face with a metal chair during a fight scene.

[2]

His jaw was broken, and he was restricted to a liquid diet, causing him to lose over 30 pounds by the time filming wrapped. His condition made headlines in the

tabloids

, which speculated he had

AIDS

.

[9][10]

You should read the thread more carefully, I talked about this in an earlier post.

Didn't he get his jaw broken when he was hit in the face with a chair during a fight sequence for the film? And then had to go on a liquid diet and lost a ton of weight?

Sorry missed this
