"where have all the cowboys gone"
So I'm watching AMC right now and seeing one of the Dirty Harry movies - The Enforcer.
Outside of the awesome remarks - like just now "Kate.... whoever draws you as a partner could do a hell of a lot worse" - there's sticking it to the mayor part. As the mayor is trying to make himself look good and do all sorts of self promotion (based on lies), Harry reacts strongly against it.
I know there are movies in the world that show off good nobility so to say, but, many of them come off as more "candy-ass", for lack of a better term. I suppose I could say "nowadays, there are no more dirty harrys", but that seems to imply that there were more of them at some point in the past.
Harry Callahan is a badass, it's refreshing to see something like that portrayed in movies.
