by Joe Rutland

Feeling lucky heading into the Christmas week? If you are, and you have Netflix, then feast your eyes on Clint Eastwood movies.

Yes, Outsiders, the movie service has four of his movies available right now for viewing.

We get this list courtesy of What’s On Netflix.

First up is The Outlaw Josey Wales, a 1976 movie that earned an Oscar nomination. An ex-Confederate soldier named Josey Wales, played by Eastwood, who is on the run comes to rest in a quiet community, where he falls for a pretty settler. Eastwood also directed this movie.

Secondly, Space Cowboys from 2000 is part of the Clint Eastwood movie group. He stars along with Tommy Lee Jones, Donald Sutherland, and James Garner. In the movie, a retired engineer agrees to help NASA prevent a Russian satellite from falling to Earth if he and his over-the-hill pals can man the mission. Yet again, Eastwood also directs this movie.

Third, Mystic River is from 2003. This film features childhood friends Sean, Dave, and Jimmy. Tragedy strikes when they’re linked together in a murder investigation about Jimmy’s teenage daughter. Eastwood directed and scored this film, but did not act in it. The cast includes Sean Penn, Laurence Fishburne, Tim Robbins, Kevin Bacon, Marcia Gay Harden, and Laura Linney.

Finally, we have Million Dollar Baby from 2004 that features him and Hilary Swank. Despondent over a painful estrangement from his daughter, trainer Frankie Dunn, played by Eastwood, isn’t prepared for boxer Maggie Fitzgerald, played by Swank, to enter his life. Besides starring in the movie, Clint Eastwood also co-produced, directed, and scored the flick.

There you have it, Outsiders. Go check them out on Netflix.

Clint Eastwood Classic Movie Helped Inspire Metallica Song

Would you have put Clint Eastwood and Metallica together on your “things that inspired a Metallica song” list?

OK, maybe you did not do so. But this did happen.

When Metallica released its self-titled Black Album, the thrash metal community wasn’t singing its praises.

But 30 years later, it is one of the best-selling albums in the world. The RIAA gave it Platinum certification 16 times. Before dropping the album, the band promoted it with a series of tours as well as five singles. The second of those was the laid-back melodic track The Unforgiven.

According to Far Out Magazine, James Hetfield said that the score of a western movie inspired the song’s intro. But, they reversed the music from the score so that no one would notice. Additionally, they haven’t revealed what song inspired the intro for The Unforgiven for legal reasons.

One Eastwood movie immediately comes to mind. However, the Eastwood-helmed Unforgiven didn’t come out until 1992, long after Metallica wrapped their self-titled album.
