    Went to see it last night. It was the first movie I've been to in almost three ya\ears. Well worth the money. If they made more like this one, the movie industry would have a better chance of turning a profit.

    The wife and I saw it last Saturday, we are die hard Eastwood fans and we were not disapointed.

    The story line is a accurate as it comes if you are a normal average working class Joe living in the real world.

    I read where it took 35 days to shoot this movie, talk about a money maker.


    Two of my favorite lines from Josey Whales: "You gonna pull those pistols or whistle Dixie" and " Die'n ain't much of a livin Boy".

    391shooter, The Outlaw Joise Wales is my favorite movie. “Dying and much of a living son." Dying ain't hard for men like you and me, its living that's hard, when everything you ever cared about been butchered or raped"

    Great movie. But then anything with Clint Eastwood is great. Hard to believe that he is 80 years old. Amazing man

    But what is really amazing to me is his wide range of talents. He is a very good jazz pianist. He really is a man's man

    I saw a video last night that I also enjoyed called Swing Vote starring Kevin Costner. I fisrt thought it might be too corny. But it is acually a very good movie. Heartwarming and funny at the same time. Kevin Costner is wonderful in that role

    Wasn't Eastwood in a movie several years back where he played a secret service agent. I would like to see that one but don't know a name.

    Great movie, some of the liberal film critics referred to Eastwoods character as a rasist. What else would you expect. I am 68 and I knew many people that were just like the character. They would help those deserving regardless of race. They also used every adjective to describe those different than themselves that were used in the movie. The way it was before PC

    Only the third time I have been to a movie in the last 25 years. I thought it was a very good movie, I stayed on the edge of my seat most of the time and was sincerely moved by Walt's adoption of the family. There were numerous funny scenes and several I have personally seen that were so funny. Like the three wannabe rappers talking about it's a good thing that old man left as I was about to kick his butt.

    The one thing that really got to me was the language. I guess I lead a sheltered life or something. I have heard the occasional use of those word but not five times in one sentence. Other than that it was a really good movie. I was also surprised at the number of children that were watching the movie. Jackie B.
