GLOCCOVNAA is an abbreviation for 'Great Life of Conflict, Climax or Virtually Nothing At All'. That was the long and ridiculous name I came out for my blog when I was 18 years old. Do click on the colourful icons on the right to check out different types of posts in this blog.

Fire Power: Make My Day!

Fire power is not just about bullet size, nor is it even about shooting, it is about the person holding the gun. In this case, a Smith & Wesson Model 29 revolver loaded with .44 Magnum that could blow anyone's head 'clean off'. So you've got to ask yourself one question: 'Do I feel lucky?' Well, do you, punk?

Remember this old man? When he was much younger, he had a thing for guns, starring in many famous spaghetti westerns in the 1960s, making a name for himself without an actual name in those movies. Then in the 1970s and 1980s, he played one of his most famous roles, a character nobody has ever seen before in films that has since been imitated so many times we forget how iconic it was at that time. Harry Callahan, more fondly known as Dirty Harry is now a term to describe reckless police officer who disregards conventional practices and policies, and it all started in Dirty Harry (1971), the first of five films in the series.

This character is at his best when he is faced with criminals who seem to get away from typical law enforcement. That's the main reason he is known as Dirty Harry, the guy who gets all the dirty job nobody else wants to do. However as reckless and crazy as he may seem, Harry has his principles. As seen in Magnum Force, he refuses to join the death squad when recruited by its leader because as he says "I hate the goddamn system, but until someone comes along with some changes that make sense I'll stick with it".
Over his film career, he has been nominated for many Oscars and won 5. This man is incredible in front as well as behind the camera and we should be glad that he just doesn't seem to stop making movies even in his 80s. Some say that even if he makes another Dirty Harry movie now, robbers and murderers won't stand a chance... he could deal with them with a walking frame if he has to.

This is a tribute to Inspector Harry Callahan, the great Clint Eastwood.
