Gran Torino: Clint Eastwood returns to the big screen as Walt Kowalski, a cantankerous veteran of the Korean War, who catches his young Hmong neighbour attempting to steal his cherished 1972 Gran Torino, urging him to try and reform the boy of his burgeoning criminal ways.

Flags of Our Fathers: February 1945. Even as victory in Europe was finally within reach, the war in the Pacific raged on. One of the most crucial and bloodiest battles of the war was the struggle for the island of Iwo Jima, which culminated with what would become one of the most iconic images in history: five Marines and a Navy corpsman raising the American flag on Mount Suribachi.

The inspiring photo capturing that moment became a symbol of victory to a nation that had grown weary of war and made instant heroes of the six American soldiers at the base of the flag, some of whom would die soon after, never knowing that they had been immortalized. But the surviving flag raisers had no interest in being held up as symbols and did not consider themselves heroes; they wanted only to stay on the front with their brothers in arms who were fighting and dying without fanfare or glory.

Flags of Our Fathers is based on the bestselling book by James Bradley with Ron Powers, which chronicled the battle of Iwo Jima and the fates of the flag raisers and some of their brothers in Easy Company.

Letters from Iwo Jima: The island of Iwo Jima stands between the American military force and the home islands of Japan. Therefore the Imperial Japanese Army is desperate to prevent it from falling into American hands and providing a launching point for an invasion of Japan. General Tadamichi Kuribayashi is given command of the forces on the island and sets out to prepare for the imminent attack. General Kuribayashi, however, does not favor the rigid traditional approach recommended by his subordinates, and resentment and resistance fester among his staff. In the lower echelons, a young soldier, Saigo, a poor baker in civilian life, strives with his friends to survive the harsh regime of the Japanese army itself, all the while knowing that a fierce battle looms. When the American invasion begins, both Kuribayashi and Saigo find strength, honor, courage, and horrors beyond imagination.

Mystic River: Three childhood friends - Jimmy Markum (Sean Penn) Dave Boyle (Tim Robbins) and Sean Devine (Kevin Bacon) - are thrust together as adults when Jimmy's 19 year old daughter is murdered.

Clint Eastwood's powerhouse drama secured Best Actor and Best Supporting Actor Oscars for Sean Penn and Tim Robbins respectively at the 2004 Academy Awards.

Unforgiven: an exciting modern classic that rode off with four 1992 Academy Awards. Clint Eastwood and Morgan Freeman play retired, down-on-their-luck outlaws who pick up their guns one last time to collect a bounty offered by the vengeful prostitutes of the remote Wyoming town of Big Whiskey: Richard Harris is an ill-fated interloper, a colourful killer-for-hire called English Bob. Gene Hackman is the sly and brutal local sheriff whose brand of Law enforcement ranges from unconventional to ruthless. Big trouble is coming to Big Whiskey...

Thank you. My second box set purchase of the day!

I'll need to brush up on my relationship management skills for when the sets are delivered!
#4
Gran Torino... ok, Mystic River ain't seen, Unforgiven = classic; and the two WWII movies together are better than the entire series of the The Pacific, IMHO.

Hot, definitely.

Million Dollar Baby ?
The Bridges of Madison County ?
Changeling ?

Are these individual films, with their own amaray case like you would buy them single? Bit of weird collection if it's digipak.

Like most boxsets, this will contain a few that distributors are trying to shift by any means necessary. But that said, aside from the WW2 films (which I haven't seen) these are some my favourite Clint films. Unforgiven is a classic western, Mystic River is excellent and Gran Torino made me both laugh and cry - can't beat a film that does both.
