Not Eastwoods best work, but still good.
When he says the woman from the mayors office is going to put on a show with a shetland pony.
"Here's a seven point suppository"
"What did you say?"
"I said stick it in your a__"
Next up........... Magnum Force (again )
Quote from my g/f..........." I have work to do, but I can't stop watching this"
The film-makers try and make Harry seem a little more sympathetic, giving him friends and a not-so-sexy girlfriend. Also making him weaponless in the climactic scene.
But this film is very very entertaining.
Good acting from Hal Holbrook as a snivelling and hate-filled Lt. Briggs. One of those movie bad guys that is "hate at first sight".
Having a pimp in full 1970s pimp regalia doing a stereotypical "b___ where's my money?" act before it was a cliche.
The car chase scene.
"If the rest of you could shoot like those guys, I wouldn't care if the whole department was queer"
Next up............Dirty Harry (again)
(Spolier Alert - The ranking will probably be 10/10).
The greatest movie of all time..............
It's like the movie that everyone has tried to copy 40,000,000,000 times but failed.
So gritty and unique and authentic in it's delivery.
With the greatest performance from an actor playing a bad-guy ever. (So authentic that he supposedly struggled to find work for a time after this).
The music might seem a bit dated compared to the crap, I mean music they have in movies nowadays, but it is really effective in building the suspense.
The final showdown between Scorpio and Harry. You buy that Harry is so furious at Scorpio that he would endanger that kids life just to blow Scorpios head off. And then when he venomously spits "Well do you ya................ punk" Classic.
The chase through the stadium. So old-school with some weird camera angles, and then the end of the scene is pure gold.
Foiling a bank robbery while eating a hot dog.
The villian wanting $100,000 cracked me up, also Harry worrying about a $29 pair of pants.
If you haven't seen this, go rent it NOW NOW NOW.
