    Dating all the way back to the very birth of American cinema in the 1910s, the western genre was pioneered by national filmmakers like John Ford, Howard Hawks and Sam Peckinpah, releasing such respective classics as The Searchers, Rio Bravo and The Wild Bunch. Though, after decades of dominance, by the 1960s, the genre had become stiff, with the arrival of Italian filmmaker Sergio Leone shaking up generations of stuffy cowboy tales. Inspired by Japanese filmmaker Akira Kurosawa, Leone brought an iconic style to his Western trilogy that included A Fistful of Dollars, For a Few Dollars More and his...

    Directed by Clint Eastwood and based on true events, “Richard Jewell” is a story of what happens when what is reported as fact obscures the truth. “There is a bomb in Centennial Park. You have thirty minutes.” The world is first introduced to Richard Jewell as the security guard who reports finding the device at the 1996 Atlanta bombing—his report making him a hero whose swift actions save countless lives. But within days, the law enforcement wannabe becomes the FBI’s number one suspect, vilified by press and public alike, his life ripped apart. Reaching out to independent, anti-establishment attorney Watson...

    There are few American actors more iconic than Clint Eastwood. His iconic "Man With No Name" character is the face of the American West for a generation of men. Dirty Harry is perhaps the most recognizable fictional police officer in American history. And the man who played them? Well, he spent some time as a small-town mayor in California.

    Hey, not all the news is bad: A new Clint Eastwood movie is coming out (Stephen Kruiser has details on it here, and Bryan Preston has more here). Back in the spring of 2019, I was laid up in the hospital for six weeks, and to get through the long hours of lying around not being able to do anything, I watched almost every movie Clint Eastwood has been in, all the way back to the mid-1960s. As I revisited Dirty Harry, The Outlaw Josey Wales, High Plains Drifter, Pale Rider, Gran Torino and so many others, I began...

    The Greatest generation, or G.I. generation, is generally defined as people born from 1901 to 1927; many of our parents populated that generation. The Baby Boomer generation was born between 1946 and 1964, after WWII and at the beginning of Vietnam. Both generations are being accosted, sometimes physically in blue check cities, but certainly psychologically and spiritually, by the Gen Z generation born between 1996 and 2013 and the late Millennial generation born from 1990-1996. New York Magazine’s Eric Levitz has identifies this group as America’s most socialist and misanthropic generation—dystopian socialists.  One only has to review the sickening recordings...

    Hollywood actress Frances Fisher posted an inflammatory tweet this week calling for a “race war” in apparent response to the death of George Floyd who was arrested by former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin, who was seen on video putting his knee on Floyd’s neck. The Titanic and HBO’s Watchmen star also quoted convicted cop killer Assata Shakur before deleting the tweet. “They want a race war. We’ll give them a race war,” Frances Fisher wrote on Tuesday, according to an archived screenshot of the deleted tweet. She also expressed her support for the Black Lives Matter movement. “I’m with...

    Hollywood legend Clint Eastwood was interviewed by the executive editor of Stanford University’s Hoover Institution. On Friday the piece was published as The Weekend Interview in the Wall Street Journal. The interview took a newsworthy twist when the topic of politics came up. Eastwood is supporting Michael Bloomberg.Say it ain’t so, Clint. It seems Mr. Eastwood is joining the ranks of other Hollywood movers and shakers in support of Bloomberg. Bloomberg began courting voters in California back in December, focusing on smaller cities and their mayors instead of large cities like Los Angeles. Perhaps Bloomberg appeals to Eastwood as...

    Clint Eastwood is breaking his silence over the 2020 presidential hopeful he believes is best fit for office. The 89-year-old discussed the #MeToo movement, career highlights and dished on his political views in a revealing interview with the Wall Street Journal, and it turns out Mike Bloomberg has the actor's support. "The best thing we could do is just get Mike Bloomberg in there," Eastwood told the outlet.

    The Hollywood actor and director was staying at a hotel owned by Steve Wynn, the casino billionaire. "Steve called me up in the room and said, 'Do you want to go play golf? We're going out with Trump.' I said, 'Who?' and Steve said, 'Trump. You know Trump?' " So Messrs. Eastwood and Wynn ventured out for a morning on the course with Donald Trump. "It was funny," Mr. Eastwood says, "because every time I was together with Steve"—with the future president out of earshot—"he would say, 'You know, Trump is doing those damn casinos. He's going to lose his...

    It goes against every piety of the liberal elites to portray the hippies as evil, but Quentin Tarantino points out that the new liberation spawned a murderous cult in Hollywood. The nearly closed 2019 was a surprisingly good year for conservatism at the movies, thanks to work by Quentin Tarantino, Clint Eastwood, James Mangold, and Roland Emmerich. Famous directors made wonderful movies, some successful at the box office, some likely to gain more prestige in awards season than popularity and therefore likely to be remembered.Most recently, Eastwood’s “Richard Jewell” continued his series of true stories about citizen-heroes. Audiences apparently have...

    I still vividly recall watching the live announcement in September of 1990 by the International Olympic Committee awarding the Centennial Olympic Games (held in the summer of 1996) to the city of Atlanta. As the boisterous cheers after the initial announcement demonstrated, much of the whole state of Georgia was giddy with excitement. From Gainesville to Savannah, Olympic venues were built or otherwise prepared all over the state, and Georgia comedian Jeff Foxworthy promised the world that the Georgia Olympics would have its own distinct Southern flavor. I’m not much of a fan of the Olympics, so I didn’t get...

    American Thinker ^ | 12/23/2019 | T.R. Clancy
    Not every mainstream movie critic hates Clint Eastwood's highly affecting Richard Jewell.  But the critics who hate it hate it an awful lot.  The story of how an out-of-control FBI and a "completely irresponsible press" ruined the life of the heroic security guard whose quick action saved many lives during the 1996 Centennial Park bombing is legitimately viewed as Eastwood's take on what's happening in America right now.  The irony that the movie was released the same week as the I.G. report exposing the FBI's lawlessness in Crossfire Hurricane must be particularly galling for mainstream journos who staked their reputations on...

    Years ago a professor of film studies told me that "Breaking Away" was one of the best "coming of age" films he'd ever seen because it didn't involve sex, but rather a boy being disillusioned with his cycling childhood heroes. "Richard Jewell" is in many respects a coming of age movie. Most people know the story: Atlanta Olympic Games security guard Richard Jewell (Paul Walter Hauser), who had been fired from a police department and from a college for excessive enthusiasm, finds a bomb in a backpack left at the Atlanta Centennial venue. He calls the police, assists in moving...

    He just seemed the type. He lived with his mother. He had lots of guns in the house. He dreamed of being a police officer. He wanted to be important. He knew everything about bombs. And so, for 88 days Richard Jewell — who was not only an innocent man, but a hero, who’d saved lives — had his own life torn apart, when he became the prime suspect in the 1996 Centennial Olympic Park bombing in Atlanta. 1996. “Richard Jewell,” which tells his story, is a suspenseful, beautifully composed film from Clint Eastwood, his finest since “Hereafter” (2010) —...

    Over the last few years, journalists have responded to accusations of "fake news" with arrogant proclamations that they are the misunderstood Guardians of Truth and Providers of Fact. But not every news story is a perfectly baked slice of Facts or Truth. Sometimes reporters merely recount what they heard but what they were told was wrong. We should all cringe whenever we hear the two words "breaking news." Time and again, news breaks out but the details are anyone's guess -- literally. "(ABC/NBC/CBS/CNN/Fox) hasn't confirmed this, but others are reporting ...," they say, and then they proceed to repeat rumors...

    The controversy surrounding Richard Jewell is heating up. Warner Bros. has released a statement responding to the Atlanta Journal Constitution’s demand for a disclaimer saying the late journalist Kathy Scruggs (portrayed in the film by Olivia Wilde) did not sleep with an FBI source for information in real life. “The film is based on a wide range of highly credible source material,” the studio’s statement, obtained by EW, says. “There is no disputing that Richard Jewell was an innocent man whose reputation and life were shredded by a miscarriage of justice. It is unfortunate and the ultimate irony that the...
