Saturday Relax ....

Outside chores done by noon and it is HOT out today .... so maybe time to kick back in the Air Conditioned environment and see what there is to see.

TV Movies .....
A couple of my favorite Clint Eastwood Flicks ;
- Unforgiven from 1992 .... there's a price to be paid for living a violent life.
- Kelley's Heroes from 1970 ..... One of the best ensemble casts for a war movie ever... only it's not really a war movie. Kelley's Heroes is a Caper Flick set in the environment of WWII France.
A chance encounter with a hapless German courier provides Kelley with an opportunity to get rich.. which leads to a host of others getting involved .. complications .. real risks.. comedy and a cagey strategic confrontation with the German guards of a 16million dollar stash of gold bars.
The stylized gunfighter face down in the dusty street is a priceless jab at the Hollywood western cliche'.

IMO one of the BEST Caper Movies of ALL time.

Kelly's Heros is great. I could watch it over and over (and have!!)
-enough with the negative waves Moriarty!

Add Outlaw Jose Wales (greatest one liners ever), and Snatch (Guy Ritchie) and there's a Saturday!!

I think the best part is where Carrol O'Connor can't get his armies to move for the life of them they find out theres gold behind the German lines and the whole front collapses.

I love when they nail the tiger the first time with paint. Kind of shows why the 60's were screwed up.

One of my top 5 movies ever, and it's kind of a war movie.
