Caught part of the classic Clint Eastwood flick Dirty Harry last night, and was blown away with the radness of this flick. If you haven’t seen it, or if you live in a hole, Dirty Harry is story of hardcore cop, Harry Callahan and the shit he gets into while working the mean streets of San Fran.
Now, what I really loved about this movie was its rawness, and grit that just does not exist in films anymore. Nobody was overly good looking, and none of the gals looked like they just walked out of a beauty salon (just watch CSI for that shit), it was just real.
You know that if Hollywood did a remake of Dirty Harry, ol Harry would be played by a perfectly dressed and styled Tom Cruise, with the girls looking like models; just wack. An example of Hollywood’s wackness was the recent Terminator flick; Yeah, the effects and all of that were cool. But it made me laugh when all the gals in the film were perfectly made up, and dressed in skin tight leather; all while battling terminator robots, give me a break.
