With the considerable length of his career in mind, PrettyFamous, an entertainment data site, found the highs and lows throughout Eastwood's time in show business. The data experts ranked all of Clint Eastwood's films (including 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.
