When veteran screen tough guy Lee Marvin teamed up with Eastwood for a movie set during the California gold rush, you'd be forgiven for expecting a brutal western.
Instead, this is a film version of a 50s stage musical. Eastwood plays 'Pardner', a farmer trying to get rich quick, and Marvin is Ben, a drunken, amoral prospector.
Sadly this slapstick affair isn't as entertaining as The Simpsons' gag it inspired.
American Legend? Erm, he's not exactly on song here.

Letters from Iwo Jima??
Much more impressive than Flags of our Fathers because...
1. Almost entirely in a foreign language yet completely gripping.
2. It was nominated for three of the big Oscars (Director, Film and Original Screenplay) whilst Flags was nominated for Sound Editing and Sound Mixing (woo?).
3. It is a more a more gripping war story, whilst still managing to mix in backstories of the soldiers.
4. It doesnt star Ryan Phillippe....

This was a fantastic tribute. I posted something similar recently, so it was fun to see someone else's take:

No love for Charlie PArker biopic 'Bird' ? Surely more deserving than the Dead Pool... (Dirty Harry being chased by a Radio control car...you may cry now).
