In preparation for Clint Eastwood's Jersey Boys, the big-screen adaptation of the Tony-winning musical, I started a conversation on Twitter asking followers what Eastwood’s last "great" movie was. Not "decent" movie. Not "movie that you’d leave on in the background while cleaning on a Saturday afternoon." Great.
Three main movies surfaced in the discussion. I talk about which movies you guys singled out, and why that’s very bad news for Clint Eastwood, in this week’s Monday Movie Memo.
In the meantime, check out:
