This week, the gang jumps into the gritty 70s with both feet and looks at Magnum Force, the sequel to the excellent Dirty Harry. As it happens, I caught both movies last weekend on one of the cable nets. The original holds up very well, especially if you look at it as a duel of wits between Harry and the antagonist (who is only credited as the Killer). The sequel…well, my opinion would have been comfortably at home on this week’s show. Listen in!
