He’s gone from TV star to action hero to one of the biggest stars in Hollywood — on both sides of the camera. We’re talking, of course, about Clint Eastwood, and with his latest directorial effort, The 15:17 to Paris, reaching theaters this weekend, we at RT thought the time was right for a look back at the best-reviewed films of his career behind the lens.

You’ll find the expected entries here — no Eastwood list would be complete without Unforgiven and Million Dollar Baby, for instance — but the length of his directorial résumé might surprise you. We’ve reached back to the beginning, set the Tomatometer for “Make My Day,” and come up with a list that’ll take you from the high plains to the sands of Iwo Jima. Do you feel lucky, punks?
