'Dirty Harry', 'Walking Tall', 'Taxi Driver': They just don't make vigilante flicks like they used to! These films simply can't be matched for raw grit and the moral conundrums they present. Is anyone above the law? The answer is no, nobody. Except Clint Eastwood. He definitely is.

Clint Eastwood as Cop, Detective, and Enforcer

'Movies like Pulp Fiction': Cult Crime Movies

In the vein of 'Reservoir Dogs' or 'Mean Streets': movies that have spawned their own sub-cultures of dedicated fans (and provided a plethora of movie-poster choices for college freshmen decorating their dorms).
