"Go ahead, make my day." For over six decades, Hollywood tour de force Clint Eastwood has starred on the silver screen. From humble beginnings in 1950s horror flicks like "Revenge of the Creature," to a slew of action adventure hits in the '70s and '80s and an extremely successful directing career, Eastwood has done a bit of everything. At the age of 86, it appears he has no plans to slow down -- his 2016 film "Sully" had great reviews and brought in impressive box office revenue.
With the considerable length of his career in mind, PrettyFamous, an entertainment data site by Graphiq, found the highs and lows throughout Eastwood's time in show business. The data experts ranked all of Clint Eastwood's films (including both films he directed and/or acted in) based on their Smart Rating. The Smart Rating is a score out of 100 that takes into account each movie's Rotten Tomatoes' Tomatometer and Audience Score, IMDb rating, Metacritic Metascore, Gracenote rating and the inflation-adjusted U.S. box office gross.
Eastwood's more recent directorial projects shine through, including "Million Dollar Baby" and "Mystic River," but it's his earlier, grittier Western action films that reign supreme. You may start to feel some nostalgia for Dirty Harry or the bad-boy Josey Wales.
Note: Descriptions for each movie were sourced (with minor edits) from Gracenote.
