    [rant]"I know what you're thinking. "Did he fire six shots or only five?" Well, to tell you the truth, in all this excitement I kind of lost track myself. But being as this is a .44 Magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world, and would blow your head clean off, you've got to ask yourself a question: Do I feel lucky? Well, do ya, punk?"[/rant]

    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    The only Don Siegel film I've seen at the cinema was Dirty Harry, on a double bill with Enter the Dragon.

    Ranking

    1)Dirty Harry (best of the series)
    2)Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1956)(a sci-fi classic, but I prefer the 1978 remake)
    3)Coogan's Bluff
    4)The Shootist
    5)Escape from Alcatraz

    Average Rating 3.1 out of 5

    Another director that I'd be personally hard pressed to consider great, at least based on the films I've seen.

    1. Invasion of the Body Snatchers - A-
    2. Dirty Harry - B+
    (more for humor value than actually being that good of a movie)
    3. The Beguiled - B
    4. The Shootist - B
    5. Charley Varrick - C+
    6. The Killers - C+
    (far inferior to Siodmak's original, watchable only because of Lee Marvin)

    Somewhat interested in Two Mules and Alcatraz. A little more interested in revisiting Body Snatchers and The Shootist.

    Even though, on the surface, it seems that I've done well by Don Siegel, there are still a bunch of titles of his I'd love to watch - NIGHT UNTO NIGHT (1949), RIOT IN CELL BLOCK 11 (1954), BABY FACE NELSON (1957), THE GUN RUNNERS (1958), THE LINEUP (1958), EDGE OF ETERNITY (1959), etc.[​IMG]! Maybe I should just get down to reading his memoirs as an alternative...
