Grand Torino
« on: January 02, 2009, 05:44:55 pm »
I saw this movie today, and wow. Eastwood was great. One of my favorite movies in a while. Have any of you guys seen it? What'd you think of it?


Kings 2:23-24 --- The Holy Bible
23 From there Elisha went up to Bethel. As he was walking along the road, some youths came out of the town and jeered at him. "Go on up, you baldhead!" they said. "Go on up, you baldhead!" 24 He turned around, looked at them and called down a curse on them in the name of the LORD. Then two bears came out of the woods and mauled forty-two of the youth.

No, no, he did. In the everything else section, at least. Officially, this makes him king.

I want to see this; however, I may have to wait for it to come out on On Demand.

Grizzle grizzle eh urh huh uh racial epiteth grumble grumble!

Clint was great, but the rest of the movie felt slow and somewhat off. Still worth it to see him 1000 years old and racist.

In my 19 years on this earth, I have cried twice at the end of a movie. The first was Free Willy when I was a kid. The second was tonight at the end of Gran Torino.

Wow, at least I wasn't the only one.

You'll never know why.
